    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
    anywhere at the following URLs:

                               Bricklayer J. Gastronomy
    
    The enemies in the game that aren't bosses appear in masses at random locations
    on the screen, the only thing that can be predicted is at what parts of a stage
    they start appearing in.  Also be warned that this game is VERY hard and
    frustrating, especially when compared to the SNES Joe & Mac which was quite an
    easy game.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 01
    ========
    
    Avoid the pteranodons while you kill cavemen and bushes and head right.  High
    jump over the baby t-rex's when you see them and continue right.
    
    Here's your first mini-boss a t-rex, he's very easy if you high jump and throw
    axes at his head.  This will force him left with each hit and he'll die quite
    easily, then you can continue the stage.
    
    Avoid the pteranodons while you kill cavemen and walk over a giant t-rex.
    Check what weapon the caveman is carrying and if it's a wheel or fire get it,
    otherwise keep your axe.  Destroy the helicopter and walk over another giant
    t-rex, then kill or avoid the helicopter as you continue right to the boss.
    
    Here's your first stage boss a giant t-rex, he's very easy if you high jump and
    throw axes at his head.  Of course you'll have to time this to jump over his
    rocks and small t-rex's but other than that it's a pretty easy battle.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 02
    ========
    
    Head right and jump the rocks as you avoid the pteranodons.  Grab the weapon if
    it's a wheel or fire, then continue right.  Jump across the ledges as you kill
    the plants, beware of their seeds.  Also be careful of the electric fish
    between some platforms.  Continue right to start the battle with the mini-boss,
    a giant plant.
    
    There isn't any real pattern to this guy, so the best bet is to just high jump
    as much as you can and fire shots at the giant plant until it dies.  Make sure
    that you don't get too close to it though, otherwise it will eat and kill you
    with one bite.
    
    Avoid the many pteranodons and rocks as you jump over platforms on your way
    right.  Get the weapon if it's a wheel or fire, otherwise continue right.  Once
    you pass the wall in the background you will be close to the stage boss.
    
    The stage boss is a large pteranodon, and you fight him while there are baby
    pteranodons trying to hit you.  Try your best to dodge the baby pteranodons as
    you high jump and hit the big one, or shoot up at it from the ground when it
    flies low.  The battle isn't tough really, but can take some time.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 03
    ========
    
    Avoid pteranodons and electric fish as you head right, then get the weapon if
    it's a wheel or fire.  Avoid more pteranodons and electric fish, then check the
    next weapon for a wheel or fire and continue right to the mini-boss.
    
    This giant water beast isn't all that tough, just make sure you high jump a
    lot.  This way you'll clear his shots and be able to hit him in the head
    easily, also high jump over him as he comes at you.
    
    Avoid rocks and pteranodons as you head right, then kill some cavemen and check
    for a wheel or fire weapon.  Jump some tiny t-rex's and avoid the pteranodons,
    then jump a pit and check for a wheel or fire weapon before going right to the
    boss.
    
    For this armoured dinosaur go right underneath his mouth, then his shots should
    miss you.  Now adjust yourself slightly (face left) until you can hit him by
    firing straight up, do this until he is dead.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 04
    ========
    
    Jump running cavemen, rocks, and birds as you go right.  Kill the rock-throwers
    and continue right to the mini-boss.
    
    Here you will fight a t-rex, while pteranodons fly above.  You can kill him
    pretty much the same way as the t-rex that you fought earlier in the game, but
    you'll take some hits from the pteranodons.  Also he doesn't back up when he
    gets hit, so just use high jumps and aim for the head to win the battle.
    
    Destroy the helicopter and head right as you avoid birds and pits.  Check the
    weapon for a wheel or fire and continue right, then avoid more pits, electric
    fish and birds until you reach the boss.
    
    You're fighting another large pteranodon here, so just try your best to avoid
    the baby pteranodons as you kill the big one and end the stage.
    
    
    ========
    Stage 05
    ========
    
    At the start of the stage you'll be jumping over some running cavemen and many
    birds as you head right.  Get the weapon if it's a wheel or fire, then continue
    right jumping over more running cavemen,  birds and baby t-rex's.
    
    Now you fight a T-Rex as the mini-boss of the stage.  If you hide under him and
    high jump up to hit him when it's safe (the pteranodons are in your way most of
    the time) the fight should be over fairly quickly.
    
    For the next part of the stage you'll be jumping cavemen and birds as you head
    right.  Get the weapon if it's a wheel or fire and jump more birds and some
    rocks.
    
    Now you'll fight the last boss of the game, a giant caveman.  Dodge his rocks
    and the birds as you attack him in the head with the axe and you should have a
    pretty easy fight.
    
    Now you can watch the ending to the game and enter your name if you got a high
    score.

    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!
