    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com) to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.
    
    Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear

    The controls for this game are as follows:
    
    A      - Jump
    B      - Not Used.
    Select - Not Used.
    Start  - Pause the game.
    
    Up/Down - Climb ladders.

                                       (C) ITEMS
    ###############################################################################
    
    There aren't many items in this game, only one of them is really useful.
    
    
    Hammer - When you grab one of these Mario will start swinging the hammer like a
             maniac until the music stops.  He can't jump while using the hammer so
             you should just use it to get rid of some annoying enemies and plan
             your next route.
    
    Umbrella/Purse - Both are worth 800 points.

    This section also includes hazards, but basically it's anything that can kill
    you.
    
    
    ==========
    Oil Barrel
    ==========
    
    This barrel only appears in the bottom left corner of the first stage, Just
    make sure you don't touch it and you'll live.
    
    
    =======
    Barrels
    =======
    
    Donkey Kong throws these repeatedly in the first stage and they pack a punch.
    Basically they roll along until they drop off a ledge, then they start rolling
    on the next ledge.
    
    However sometimes the barrels roll down a ladder before they reach the end of
    the ledge, this is pretty random and also deadly if you're on the ladder at the
    time.
    
    There is yet another pattern to watch out for with barrels, sometimes one will
    simply bounce to each platform on it's way down.  These barrels can reach you
    much faster than the other types but they're pretty easy to spot.
    
    The best way to avoid barrels is not to wait on any ladder in case they roll
    down them, otherwise simply jump over them as they roll towards you.
    
    
    ===========
    Springboard
    ===========
    
    Donkey Kong throws these bouncing weapons at you in the second stage.  They
    move too fast to jump over but if you watch their pattern you can easily stand
    in the areas where they don't touch the ground.
    
    
    =========
    Fireballs
    =========
    
    These enemies move horizontally along platforms, while you can jump over them I
    wouldn't recommend trying unless it's your very last resort.  This is because
    these enemies don't move at a constant speed, sometimes they slow down or even
    start moving in the other direction.  They can also climb ladders (even broken
    ones) so keep an eye on them at all times.
    
    
    ===========
    Donkey Kong
    ===========
    
    I don't know what would make you think that tiny Mario could take on Donkey
    Kong directly, but needless to say if you touch Donkey Kong you will die.
    
    
    =========
    Elevators
    =========
    
    These moving platforms can crush you from above or below if you wait on them
    too long.  You can also die if you are careless and try to jump to an elevator
    that is too far below you.
    
    
    =======
    Gravity
    =======
    
    Mario is pathetic in this game and basically if you fall from a height of more
    than a few pixels he will die.

                               Bricklayer J. Gastronomy
    
    There are only three stages to the game, but you can replay them to your
    heart's content.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 01
    ========
    
    This stage has Donkey Kong constantly throwing barrels at you, in addition to
    this annoyance some of the barrels will become fireball enemies once they get
    burned in the oil barrel.
    
    
    Head right at the start and ignore the broken ladder as you climb the next one
    to your right, then rush left and jump any barrels along the way as you climb
    either ladder to the next floor.
    
    Here you can either grab the hammer and cause some havoc or climb up either of
    the rightmost ladders to reach the next floor.  Jump more barrels on this
    floor, then climb either of the two leftmost ladders to reach the next floor.
    
    Use the hammer here if you need it, otherwise head right past the broken ladder
    as you avoid/jump barrels.  Climb the rightmost ladder and jump the final few
    barrels, then climb the ladder in front of you to reach the top platform and
    end the stage.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 02
    ========
    
    This stage has no barrels, but there are still fireball enemies to deal with as
    well as elevators.
    
    
    Climb the ladder in front of you at the start followed by another ladder above
    it, then grab the umbrella and wait there for a moment.
    
    Make sure that the fireball enemy to your right is on the lower platform, then
    quickly jump across the elevator to the platform on the other side.  The
    fireball enemy below will likely be climbing the ladders below, so quickly jump
    across the elevator to your right when it lines up to reach the platform
    beyond.  Jump to the small platform on your right, then watch the springboards
    that Donkey Kong is throwing and the fireball enemy to your right.
    
    Make sure the fireball to your right is on one of the lower platforms before
    carefully jumping right past the springboards, then pick up the purse for some
    points if you want them before heading back to the platform with the ladder.
    
    Climb the ladder and watch the springboards, then carefully rush left after it
    bounces over you.  Quickly climb up the ladder to your left to reach the top
    platform and end this stage.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 03
    ========
    
    In this stage Donkey Kong doesn't throw anything at you, so you get a small
    break in that respect.  However he can still kill you if you go up to him and
    touch him, so don't do that.  Other than Donkey Kong you just need to watch out
    for fireball enemies in this stage.
    
    You should also notice that there are eight yellow blocks in this stage, two on
    each floor.  You need to walk over each of those blocks to remove it, then once
    you have removed all eight blocks the stage will end.
    
    
    I recommend taking the lowest two blocks at the start of the stage because
    there should only be one fireball enemy at that time.  Don't forget to jump
    over the gaps that you created when you removed the blocks, otherwise you'll
    fall to your death and regret it.
    
    You should then climb up the far left ladders until you reach the top floor.
    Remove the left block here before climbing down to the floor below, then take
    the left block here as you climb down another floor.
    
    Grab the hammer above you and rush right as you kill any enemies that get in
    your way and remove the two blocks on this floor.
    
    Now you can get the final pair of blocks however you want, either take the
    ladders to reach them or use the hammer on the floor above you to first take
    out some enemies.  Once you have all eight blocks removed Donkey Kong will
    fall, then the stage and the game will end.
    
    The game will continue back at the first stage though and you can continue
    playing until you lose all of your lives or get bored.

    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
    listed below.
    
    
    For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:

    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
