   BUY/SELL food and/or items:
CALL your monkey, then select SHOPPING.
There, you will be given a choice to BUY or SELL.
In BUY mode, you can choose to let your monkey buy whatever it wants,
or give it an order.
Use the arrow keys in either mode to select a food and to choose quantities
of foods.



~*~*~Battles~*~*~

   To win, your monkey must K.O. your opponent by depleting your opponent's
Strength.
   If neither you or your opponent can K.O. each other, then the winner is
chosen by the Judge's decision.
   This decision is based on who did better during the match. All I am sure
is that the decision involves the number of downs, Strength, and Stamina the
monkeys have after the final round.


*~*Strategies*~*

Attack      Hit it! Hit it!
     This strategy makes your monkey hit your opponent as much as possible.
     It uses alot of Stamina, however, and leaves your monkey vulnerable to
     your opponents attacks too. The more Power your monkey has, the more
     Strength it will take away from the opposing monkey.

Defence    Beat it up
     This is a good strategy to use against attacking opponents. Your monkey
     won't use a lot of Stamina and its Strength won't be lost either. Your
     opponent's monkey will lose alot of Stamina if it keeps trying to attack 
     your monkey's defence, and it will be all worn out in the next round.

Speed      Keep moving
     Also a good strategy to use when your opponents are attacking. This is
     especially effective if your monkey has high Speed. Your monkey will
     be running circles against the other monkey, not allowing it to get a hit
     in against you. This strategy also has your monkey making a good mix
     of attacking and running away. It's not a 100 % effective strategy,
     however - your opponent can still hit you sometimes.

Balanced   Keep your balance
     This strategy makes your monkey have a good mix of attacking, running,
     and defending. I find that it is better to have more Knowledge when using
     this strategy, as your monkey will be better at choosing the better choice
     for each situation, be it attacking, running or defending.



~*~*~Foods~*~*~

Food is used to recover Strength and/or Stamina, and also to relieve a monkey
of its hunger.

New foods can be obtained when you let your monkey go shopping without
a shopping list. This is the only way new foods can be obtained.

After your monkey has bought a food once, you can order it to buy more of the
food as you would normally.

The descriptions are right from the game, so don't tell me that I am
not good at making descriptions.

~*~*~Mixing~*~*~

To be able to mix items, you need to have a Mixer beforehand. This you can
get after a certain event.
Also, only certain items can be mixed together, and some items that can be
mixed with one item may not be able to mix with another item.

These are the items that can be mixed:

Aspirin     Antacid
Seltzer     Iron
Vitamin     Calcium
Minerals

Take note, however. These stat changes are permanent.

   For example, say I have a monkey with the following stats and
   I use Tablet 1 on it.

                  Before                    After
               Pow       500*               530*
               Spd       500*               500*
               Knowl     500*               500*
               Str       500*               470*
               Stm       500*               500*

The following are all the different combinations:

Aspirin  + Antacid  = Tablet 1       Pow + 30, Str - 30
Vitamin  + Minerals = Tablet 1       Pow + 30, Str - 30
Antacid  + Aspirin  = Tablet 2       Str + 30, Stm - 30
Iron     + Minerals = Tablet 3       Stm + 30, Pow - 30
Minerals + Iron     = Tablet 3       Stm + 30, Pow - 30
Calcium  + Antacid  = Tablet 4       All Stats - 20
Antacid  + Calcium  = Tablet 4       All Stats - 20
Calcium  + Vitamin  = Tablet 5       All Stats +100 - 99 = + 1
Vitamin  + Calcium  = Tablet 5       All Stats +100 - 99 = + 1
Seltzer  + Aspirin  = Tablet 7       "You've become a bad monkey"


~*~*~Hints/Tips~*~*~

After you get a new monkey, you can call it when it starts to like/trust
you. Feed it two bananas. After this, you will be able to call your
monkey. This is the earliest time it your monkey will respond to you.

Always get your monkey to have stars in every stat before you breed it.
This way, you can get the most potential out of the new monkey.
