    -[Storyline]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Five Years after exiling Andross to the ravaged planet of Venom for
    his crimes against Corneria, General Pepper receives reports of new 
    biotechnology experiments taking place on Venom. A team of three
    agents penetrates the defenses of the planet, but Pigma Dengar
    betrays his colleagues, James McCloud and Peppy Hare. Only Peppy 
    escapes the trap to return to Corneria where he warns General Pepper
    of the treachery of Pigma and the growing danger from the exiled mad
    ape. As the evil hand of Andross stretches from Venom across the Lylat
    Solar System toward Corneria, it seems that all my be lost.
    The forces of Corneria are no match for the hatred of Andross and his
    vile creations. World after world falls to the forces of Venom until 
    only Corneria stands free. At last, General Pepper makes the decision
    to contact Fox McCloud , the sone of James McCloud, who now leads the
    Star Fox team. It is the last chance and the final hope for Corneria.
    
    Without hesitation, Fox and his allies sign on with the Cornerian Air
    Force commanded by General Pepper. These mercenary warriros represent
    the finest pilots and fighters in the Lylat System: Fox, The Leader, 
    Peppy Hare, the grizzled campaigner, Falco Lombardi, the brash but 
    courageous lieutenant, and Slippy Toad, the mechanical wizard.
    
    Only the Star Wolf team, that is controlled by Andross, has comparable
    skills. Now that Andross's siege of Corneria has begun, only the Star 
    Fox team remains free to counterattack from its base aboard the Great 
    Fox. But this will be just the beginning of the battle. They must find 
    a way to reach Venom itself and end the madness at the source. Along 
    the way they will encounter horrific creations of Andross on fifteen 
    worlds and they will employ every high-tech weapon and tactic they 
    possess. Above all, they must fight as a team if they hope to defeat
    Andross.

    [Fox McCloud]
    
    Fox is the leader of the Star Fox team, Fox is the Lylat System's Last
    hope to restoring peace. Fox McCloud is a couragous character, this is
    who you play. Personally he is the only one I like in the game.
    
    [Slippy]
    
    Slippy is a frog that gets too excited and is always getting into 
    trouble, however Slippy is also a great inventer that created the 
    Blue-Submarine and the Land Cruiser. Slippy is very helpful throughout
    the game. Slippy's Voice is annoying!
    
    [Peppy]
    
    Peppy is the most helpful on your journey telling you the right things
    to do. Peppy is the oldest of the Star Fox team but is also the wisest.
    
    [Falco]
    
    Falco is a very strict all business kinda guide. He gets mad at 
    everything done wrong. If you save him he acts rude and sarcastic. 
    However Falco saves your butt plenty of times during gameplay.
    
    [ROB]
    
    This is the robot that controls the great fox and also repairs any 
    damaged ships that you may have. He also sends you supplies which 
    save your butt in emergency cases when you are low on the shield 
    guage.

               II. T i p s / F a q s  F o r  P l a n e t s 
    =====================================================================
    
    
    As I do not know what path you have choosen or will chose It is up to
    you to find the correct planet that you are on.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Corneria]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    As you start out will you have three smart bombs and a single shot 
    missle. At the very beginning two enemies will come flying towards
    you, shot them down. Next up a group will form try to lock on the
    middle one and fire. If you miss one use your standard laser to kill
    it, you will then gain the Laser Upgrade get it now you will have two
    lasers. Now you will be coming towards the Island Slippy asks for 
    Help, quickly lock on the ships that are behind Slippy and fire. 
    Slippy should thank you if you did it fast enough.
    
    You are now on the island. There will be a couple of enemies coming 
    ahead of you shoot them. Then a couple will come up from behind you,
    do a loop and shoot them down. After you pass the canyon you will 
    come into a pillar with two crafts there shoot them down. Go to the
    left of the pillar and follow the street go under the bridge to pick
    up your first Sheild Ring. Be sure to use your charged laser on any
    enemy found, as soon as you are out of the "bridge" swing to the
    left and shoot the doors on another bridge this will open up a passage
    and give you an extra Smart Bomb. Now go back and follow the road 
    ahead there will be a couple of enemies on the street shoot them to
    get a Supply Ring. You will go through another Bridge like structure,
    as you continue will see a second set of Enemies on the Street, blast
    them to get another Sheild Ring. As you follow the road you will 
    notice a Laser Upgrade you can either immediately shoot the Machine 
    that is knocking down the building or you can use the Booster to get
    the Laser Upgrade its up to you. Continue to follow the road to get
    another sheild ring. As you follow the road Peppy yells that you have
    an enemy on your tail and tells you to use the break, you can use the
    break or you can do a loop and then fire at enemies, your call. Right
    after that there will be a door to blast open and you can pick up a
    bomb, shoot the next one right after to get a thrid Sheild Ring! 
    This should increase your energy gauge quite nicely. Next you will 
    run into a Check Point, Go through it.
    
    After the checkpoint blast the passage that is un your way or go over
    it, Falcon needs some help now, he tries to manuveur them but cant. 
    Use your boosters and blast the Crafts behind them Chances are Falcon
    got damaged, thats okay cause it is hard to save Falcon completely. 
    Next up you will run into a couple of pilars and you get to choose if
    you want a bomb or a laser upgrade if you have blue lasers then just
    get the bomb, cause your laser guns cant be upgraded any further.
    
    Passed the pillars there is pretty much an open field, make sure you
    keep your lasers charged and fired as much as possible. After a bit 
    you will run into two machines twirling pieces of metal or wood, 
    charge and fire at them, Be prepared right after there are three 
    ground enemies ready to fire, do a Barrel Roll past them.
    
    Now you will come to a water zone with plenty of bridge like structures
    you have two options you can go through all the arches to go to Sector
    Y or you can just brush them off and go on to Meteo. If you are new 
    then I wouldnt worry about it. On the last arch go under to get a sheild
    ring.
    
    >>If you took the Sector Y Path<<
    As you continue there will be enemies left and right, Falcon will say 
    Follow me Fox, follow him through the waterfall. As you continue there
    will be birds droping bombs fire at them, soon you will be on the boss
    Attack Carrier...look in the boss section to figure out how to defeat
    him.
    
    >>If you took Meteo Path<<
    You will continue to go straight, use charge beams to kill the enemies
    that form into groups. Use regular blasters on ground enemies I find it
    works the best. Eventually you will end up fighting the boss....Granga.
    .look at the Boss Section to learn how to beat him.

    This is a very straight forward level. It is pretty simple just watch 
    out for Meters they are the real killer in this level. Peppy and Slippy
    need help in this level, Once for Peppy and Once of Slippy. Peppy gives
    advice on this level so be sure to keep him alive and listen to anyword
    he gives you. If you want to go to Fortuna do not go through the warps.
    If you want to go to Katina on the otherhand you will need to go through
    7 warp gates towards the end of the level. On the bees just use your 
    regular laser do not try to charge it because you can not target them.
    At the end you will face the Meteo Crusher..look in the Boss section to
    get info on how to defeat it.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Fortuna]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This level is simple at the beginning go around and shoot ships and help
    your commards when they need it. Eventually The Robot will tell you that
    there is a bomb in the base..Fox will say he will go disarm it, Then you
    are rudely interupted by the Star Wolf team. They are fairly easy to 
    defeat (If you defeat them you will go to Solar, if you dont you will go
    to Sector X) Watch the map when a black ship gets behind you do a loop 
    and shoot them when you get out of the loop. The hardest part is keeping
    your other members alive so you need to watch you map so when one of your
    Star Fox Members is in trouble you know where they are at. If you need 
    life hit the Satellite sheilds and they will reward you with Supply Rings
    to assist you by feeling you up. If you successfully destroy them you will
    go in and disarm the bomb making Fortuna safe. If not the bomb will explode
    and Star Wolf Team will escape.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Sector X]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    As you can tell I cant give as much detail...as Coronaria is very easy
    to explain I dont have much to go on in any other levels, Here are some
    tips for Sector X. This place is very difficult you will come acrossed
    many fast fighters, you will need to use your charge beam in these. 
    There is much debris around Sector X so you need to fire your standard
    laser at them to prevent any damage to your arwing. Eventually you will
    run into a section of the level where it splits one way to have a chance
    to get the Warp Gate working and the other just to go through Sector X.
    Going through the Warp Gate takes you to Sector Z...going through the 
    level without loosing any wingmen will take you to Macbeth...If anyone 
    gets killed you will go through Titania. In order to activate the Warp
    Gate you will need to fire rockets or lasers into three (I believe) 
    square lined like below:
     ___________
    | ________  |
    ||  _____ |||
    || | ____||||
    || |______|||
    ||_________||
    |___________|
    
    You need to fire at three of these openning them and going through each,
    while enemies attack you this is very difficult! I would recommend using
    Smart Bombs to open them the fastest that you can! The Boss in this level
    is called SpyBorg.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Titania]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is a desert planet, Slippy gets captured and tooken here, its up 
    to Fox to save Slippy! The most difficult part in this level the 
    droping columns and the tanks shooting at you, they are easy to avoid
    by using the Turbo boost or using the side sweep (Press Z or R twice).
    You will run into a giant creature on the way..fire at its stomach to
    destory it. There is a gold ring on a platform in about the first 15 
    seconds of the level. There is also a bomb bye the giant creature that
    you could use. you will run into pits along the way where bombs will 
    be launched at you..you need to use the hoover technique to avoid 
    getting injuried. you will meet up with a boss called Goras.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Bolse]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This isnt much of a adventure level. the first thing you do is destroy
    the towers that are conducting the sheild around the base. After you 
    destory them a bunch of ships come out of the base, depending on the
    results at Fortuna..you may also have to have to fight the Star Wolf
    team again, while battling all the other ships! If you didnt kill 
    them at Fortuna then they will come back you will need to defeat them
    first and then go for the Core of the base. If you did kill them you 
    will need to kill ships for a little bit and wait for the core to open.
    When the core opens I highly recommend shooting Smart Missles at it to
    destory it, this is tough.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Sector Y]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Very easy level if you dont want to go to Aquas..if you do you need to
    pay attention and shoot as many enemies as possible because you need at
    least 100 hit points in order to go to Aquas. The only problems you may
    have is at the ships when they have cannons shooting at you, you should
    just use charging Lasers or even a bomb if your are desperate. You 
    will face the boss Shogun.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Katina]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In this level there is an alien ship invading the Katina base. You 
    will have assistance in this level led by Bill Grey. you need to 
    watch what you are shooting and try not to shoot the wrong crafts,
    because they are a real help. For about 5 minutes you just go 
    around shooting ships. Eventually the Saucerer will open the 
    hatches..look in the Boss Section.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Solar]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This level can be difficult, as throughout the level your energy is 
    being drained from all the heat..when you see big rocks shoot at 
    them they carry bunches of Supply Rings which in turn keep your life
    up. Make sure you keep all your Allies alive they are very useful. 
    During the level you may run into big lava waves use the break. 
    You will also run into firebirds that drop bombs and they explode 
    use the charge laser to take care of these. At one point Falco will 
    need your assistance..destory the birds that are flying behind him,
    it is best to lock on them. Then Slippy will need assistance right
    after...lock on and then use a smart missle to destroy them. Look in
    the boss section under Vulcan to learn how to defeat the boss.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Macbeth]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Macbeth is Andross's Weapons department. You will follow a train in 
    your mission on the Land Cruiser, dont focus on the train for the 
    first half, but focus on whats ahead of you instead. At the 
    beginning of the level you will be faced with towers use your 
    charged laser to lock onto the tower crafts and destroy them one by
    one. Continue on the right side of the train until you notice the 
    train turning a little bit, go to the right side and pick up a bomb,
    then go back to the right side and get yourself a Sheild Ring, there
    will be two more right after it. As you continue on the right side of
    the train you will pickup a bomb. If falco is alive in your party you
    will have to rescue him right after you get your bomb by using your 
    regular lasers. Quick! on the track there is also a Sheild Ring. 
    As you continue the train may stop for a little while start firing 
    at it. As it passes through the passage Barriers will pop out from
    the wall use your hover to get over them, there are three in a row.
    Next up you will run into a bunch of little metal doors, they 
    include many Supply Rings/Sheild Rings and Smart Bombs, get as many
    as you can. Continue on and you will run into another barrier again
    use Hoover to get over it. Make sure the train has passed cause when
    you land on it it takes a good deal of sheild power away from you. 
    You will then come to eight switches shoot as many as you can, the 
    first three are on the right side of the track, the fourth is on the
    left side and so is the fifth. The Sixth one is on the Right side, 
    The Seventh is on the left side, and the 8th is on the right
    side. If done correctly the train stops and you dont have to move 
    anymore. You will now be facing Mechbeth.>>If you hit the 8 switches
    you go to Area 6<< >>If you fail you go to Bolse<<
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Aquas]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Easy level just use Tropedos throughout the level, at one point it 
    gets difficult and you need to fire at many starfish that explode 
    and dodge electric fish (I guess thats what they are called?)
    What you need to do is slow down the Blue Submarine and fire at 
    the starfish as much as you can dont worry about the electric fish.
    At the end you will face the boss Bacoon.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Zoness]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This level is difficult for one reason...it is nearly impossible to
    destroy all the Red lights flashing you need to be extremely quick 
    to destroy them. That is the only difficult part. If you dont hit 
    all the lights you go to Macbeth if you do hit them all however 
    you get to go to Sector Z. Remember, In this level there are many
    enemies grouped together..making them perfect targets for the Smart
    Bombs, use the bombs wisely though. You will face the Boss Sarumarine.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Sector Z]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Sector Z is dang near impossible! You have to try to save all your 
    crew members while destroying six missles coming to the great fox.
    There is really no easy way to explain how to do this. The best 
    strategy I have found to destroying the missles is to go behind them.
    .wait for a bit then do U-Turn then fire at the missle and use the
    breaks. The problem is choosing between your allies that you really 
    need for Area 6, or to save Great Fox. Good Luck!
    >>If you suceed then you will go to Area 6<< 
    >>If you fail then you go to Bolse.<<
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Area 6]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The stradegy in this level is to simply shoot anything that moves!
    and save your allies. There really isnt wrong or right way in this
    level. You need to make sure you get as many rings as  you can to 
    keep your life up, the boss is pretty difficult in this level 
    though the boss is Gorgon.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Venom] (easy)-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you enter Venom via Bolse then this is where you should be. you 
    will start out with many ships coming towards you fire, you can use
    bombs if you want to. You only need to rescue Falco once, other than 
    that it is pretty easy to go through. Until you get to the Mid-Boss 
    of the level (or Boss whichever) which is called Golemech. You will
    be in a hall were this statue will run down a hall and pull out 
    pillars from the wall you need to blast the body and the head
    and get rid of all excessive armor, then continue to blast. Also,
    when he jumps columns come from the ground, Turn Sideways Fast!
    and go through any open crack! There is also a point where there is
    statues on the side of the walls with swinging hands, simply stay in
    the center and shoot Golemech.
    After that you will tell your team you are going in alone, you will 
    go down a big path with power-ups here, power-ups there. Get them all,
    eventually you will face Andross! 
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Venom] (hard)-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you entered this way you will face the Star Wolf Team again, this 
    time  they are much more advanced, you will need to use your allies 
    is bate and attack the members when they follow one of the Star Fox 
    members. If someone gets behind you (happens a lot) do a Flip. 
    (Notice Star Wolf doesnt say what the heck..probably cause it isnt 
    impressive with his machine) Sometimes they are still behind you so
    you may have to do this twice. This is dang near impossible without
    at least double lasers. after you defeat them for the second time 
    you will face Andross.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Difficulty: **
    This opponent swings his arms at you and fires missles so keep distance

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Saucerer]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Difficulty: **

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Vulcan]-

    -[Mechbeth]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Difficulty: ***
    Start by shooting the tail, then aim for the head, after both are 
    tooken off. Then watch the thrain, as it throws out electric boxes fire
    at it, then shoot the Mechbeth, repeat process until it is dead. To 
    avoid the droping packages do the Hover Manuever.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Bacoon]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Difficulty: ***1/2
    Shoot the holes in which the snakes come out of. When the Bacoon opens
    up fire at the two stems that are holding the shell up. Continue this 
    process until it falls off. Then you will be faced with eggs being shot
     at you from all over...use lasers to kill the places where the eggs 
    are coming from then use a torpedo at the eye.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Sarumarine]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Difficulty: ***1/2
    Use a bomb on the snorkels. When they are destoryed..destroy the bomb 
    launchers when one is destroyed he will go for the crane, shoot it as 
    fast as you can so he cant recover. After that destroy the other bomb 
    launcher. Then just go after the entire body with bombs or lasers.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Gorgon]-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Difficulty: ****
    - Destroy the tenticles around it then fire at the energy balls. Blast
    the missles for energy and missles. Then you need to repeat the same 
    procress. Pretty soon Gorgon will use a Powerful attack in which a 
    big ray of light will come and attack you, go to the upper left hand
    corner and do barrel rolls until it stops doing it.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Adross] (easy)-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Difficulty: **
    For some reason Andross is really easy. All you need to do is shoot his
    eyes to allow him to expose his hands hit the hands repeat until you have
    both hands are gone, then blast the head! Eventually he will die.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    -[Andross] (hard)-
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Difficulty: ***1/2
    First destroy the eyes then go directly for the brain, becareful this 
    Andross has many attacks! After you defeat him you need to keep up with
    your father and follow him. Use Boosters if neccessary. Note: If you 
    defeat Andross and then die you will not start from the beginning but
    from where you died.
