   Greetings, and welcome to my guide for 'Adventure Island' for the Nintendo
Entertainment System.  The goal of this guide is to provide you with as much
information as possible about the game, in hopes to aid those who are stuck,
need a few pieces of advice, or want to get more out of their experience with
the game.  I don't feel there's a need to bore you to death with a bunch of
background information about the game, so let's dive right on in to the good
stuff.  Enjoy!  ^_^



 ##### Controls ###############################################################

   The Controls are very simple.  Use the Left and Right controller buttons
to move Master Higgins left or right.  The B button allows you to throw your
axe or rocks (assuming you have them), and the A button makes Master Higgins
jump.  You can jump higher when walking (or when simply holding down the B
button), and can run faster if you hold down the B button as you walk.  The
Start button pauses the game.

   You can also continue your game should you lose all your lives by holding
down "Right" on the control pad and pressing Start when on the Title Screen.
However, this only works if you have found the Hudson Bee.  Look in the 'Goodies'
section as well as the Walkthrough for Area 1, Round 1 for more details on the
Hudson Bee.


 ##### Characters #############################################################

   Master Higgins:  Our Hero, Master Higgins, is an easy-going kind of guy.
     An island native, he has a passion for fruit, milk, and his girlfriend,
     Tina.  It is your job to get Master Higgins through the 8 areas of the
     island and defeat the evil Witch Doctor in order to save Tina!

   Tina:  Master Higgins' sweetheart, Tina, has been kidnapped by the evil
     Witch Doctor.  It's your job to save her!

   Witch Doctor:  The evil Witch Doctor appears at the end of each area,
     becoming increasingly powerful as the game progresses.  His only weak
     spot is his head, which changes with each form he takes.  He will surely
     try to prevent Master Higgins from rescuing Tina with his evil magic!


 ##### Goodies (and not-so-goodies) ###########################################

     There are various goodies scattered about the levels that will give you
a boost or make it easier for you to complete your task.  Look for them and
pick 'em up whenever possible!

   Food:  Master Higgins has a limited health supply, which is replenished when
     he eats the various foods that appear on the Island.  When the Health Bar
     runs out, Master Higgins will lose a life, so it is very important to
     always try to grab up all the food items that you see!

     Apple (50 Points)
     Banana (50 Points)
     Tomato (100 Points)
     Carrot (100 Points)
     Pot of Gold (200 Points)

   Egg:  Eggs are scattered about the island, some out in the open, others
     hidden.  Eggs usually contain weapons or other power-ups that will
     be useful to you!
     *NOTE*  If you open an egg that normally contains a weapon, and you already
     have a weapon, the egg will contain a Flower instead.  Eggs with Skateboards,
     Milk, or Eggplants inside will always contain those items whether you have
     a weapon or not.
     To find hidden eggs, continually throw your weapon... if it appears to
     stop in mid-air, there may be a hidden egg nearby.  Stand over the suspecting
     spot and jump to uncover the egg!
     To open an egg, just run into it and Master Higgins will kick it.  When
     it lands it will break, reveaing the item.  Eggs can also be broken using
     your weapon.. the first hit will crack it, the second will open it.
     *NOTE*  There is a pattern to what appears in the Hidden Eggs.  The first
     hidden egg you open will contain Rocks, the next Red Milk, then the next
     3 will be Rings.  Finally, the next egg you open will be a Baby Higgins
     Doll!  Then the cycle will repeat (Red Milk, 3 Rings, Doll).
     However, if you die, this cycle will be reset!

   Axe:  A crude stone axe that Master Higgins can be used as a weapon.  Press
     B and Master Higgins will throw it out in front of him.  It can defeat
     most enemies, but cannot destroy rocks or boulders.

   Rocks:  A more powerful weapon, Rocks can only be found in hidden eggs.
     Rocks can defeat enemies, as well as destroy rocks and boulders.

   Skateboard:  Found in eggs, this item will give you the power to move much
     faster, but the only problem is that you cannot stop, nor go backwards!!
     Pressing Left on the control pad will make you slow down, but it is very
     inconvenient not being able to stop.  If you run into an enemy, you won't
     die, but the skateboard will disappear.  If you complete the stage with
     a Skateboard, you will receive a point bonus!

   Milk:  It does a body good, and Master Higgins is no exception!  Milk completely
     fills up your life meter.  It comes in two colors, white and red... the
     only difference being that red milk can only be found in hidden eggs.

   Ring:  Rings award you with 2,000 points, and can only be found in hidden
     eggs.  If you collect enough of those before losing a life, the next hidden
     egg will contain a 1-up!!

   1-up:  The Baby Higgins doll will award you with an extra life.  These are
     very hard to come by, as they can only be found in hidden eggs after a
     certain number of rings have been obtained.

   Honey Girl:  Honey Girl the Fairy can be found trapped in some eggs, and
     when released, Master Higgins will become invincible!  Dash through your
     enemies and obstacles to defeat them... the more enemies you defeat while
     invincible, the more bonus points you'll get!  You stay invincible as long
     as Honey Girl is on the screen... when the music stops she will fly away,
     and you'll be vulnerable once again.

   Eggplant:  Eggplant is Master Higgins' least favorite food.  It will follow
     him around indefinitely, draining his health away, only leaving when Master
     Higgins has around 2 or 3 sticks of life remaining (or until you complete
     the stage, in which you will get a bonus ("Eggplant Bonus" as I call it ;)).
     Avoid breaking an egg with the Eggplant inside at all costs!

   Pot Bonus:  The Pot Bonus will double the bonus points you receive at the end
     of the stage.  There is one in every stage, though they are not always where
     you can see them... some are very well hidden indeed!

   Key:  Keys will allow you to access a special bonus stage, where all food
     items are worth 500 points!  After getting the key, there will usually be
     a nearby platform, which when jumped upon, will whisk you away up to the top
     of the screen, where the bonus stage is!!

   Flower:  The Flower will double the point value of all food items (does not
     apply to bonus stages, however).

   NES Controller:  These only appear if you manage to defeat a Coyote from
     behind (i.e jumping over it as it passes under you then throwing axes or
     rocks at its back).  It is a symbol of cleverness on your part, and will
     award you with 1,000 bonus points when obtained.

   Hudson Bee:  The Hudson Bee can be found in the very first stage, and when
     obtained will allow you to continue your game should you lose all your
     lives.  To continue, hold "Right" on the Control Pad and press the Start
     button on the Title Screen.


 ##### Baddies ################################################################

     There are also an assortment of baddies who are out to make Master Higgins'
task as difficult as possible.  Baddies can be defeated with an axe or rocks,
but if you have no weapon you must avoid them!

   Sneil:  Sneil, as you might expect, resembles your basic Snail.  They're
as slow as a... well, snail, and if you stand and let them inch towards you,
chances are you'll die of starvation before they can reach you.  Jump over
them or hit them with your weapon to be rid of them.  (10 Points)

   Cobra:  Cobra is a fire-breathing snake who likes to hang out behind rocks.
Cobras hate loud noises, and if you bounce an axe off of a rock, boulder, or
even an egg, Cobra will breathe tongue-shaped fire at you.  Aim carefully to
avoid hitting the rock or use Rocks of your own to destroy them.  (100 Points)

   Pooter:  These little pigs move aimlessly from right to left, in attempt
to plow over you.  Jump over them or throw a weapon at them.  (100 Points)

   Skeleton:  These skulls have tiny fireballs rotating around them, and
although they stay in one place, can float in the air.  If you touch them,
Master Higgins will go up in flames, so either jump over them or get rid of
them with a weapon.  (10 Points)

   Basser:  These bats normally hang out in caves, usually hanging up near the
ceiling until Master Higgins approaches, when they swoop down and fly to the left
towards you.  If you have no weapon, inch forward and wait for them to swoop
down, then jump over them.  (50 Points)

   Cavas:  These small brown birds usually come in large groups, so either
rapidly toss your weapon to take them out, or jump over them.  (100 Points)

   Zigmo:  These spiders usually live in the dark forests at the end of each
area, and will bob up and down on their threads.  Take them out with a weapon, or
carefully jump over (or run under) them.  (50 Points)

   Kello:  One of the most dangerous baddies in the game is Kello, who resembles
a frog.  There are two types... Green and Brown.  Brown Kellos will leap towards
you, so carefully jump over them.  It will take two hits with your weapon to
defeat Kello, and note that Green Kellos will turn Brown after sustaining one
hit.  (200 Points)

   Ice:  These icicles hang from the top of the icy caverns on the island,
dropping down upon Master Higgins when he approaches.  Since they appear in
icy areas, you may have a tough time turning around to avoid them before they
turn you into a human icicle, so proceed slowly.  If you are high enough off
the ground, you may also shatter them with a weapon.  (20 Points)

   Oct:  These octopi hang out in the ocean areas, periodically jumping out
of the water to incredible heights.  There are two types, Red and Blue... the
only "difference" being Blue Octs turn Red when hit with a weapon (and can
then be treated as Red Octs).  To avoid them, either jump over them as they
pass below you, or jump under them as they reach the height of their jumps.
(100 Points)

   Waler:  These dolphins also inhabit the water, and leap out of the water
towards you.  They can leap rather high, so either get rid of them with a
weapon, or jump over them as they descend back into the water.  (100 Points)

   Coyote:  These annoying animals are very quick, and dash from the left
side of the screen in an attempt to ambush you from behind.  The presence
of Coyotes is marked by a Flower (not to be confused with the Flower that you
can pick up)... if you see a Flower on the ground, there's a Coyote coming
soon.  In the later levels, Coyotes can jump, and I do mean JUMP!  (500 Points)
  It will take two hits with your weapon to get rid of a Coyote.  You can
simply turn around and attack it from the front, but if you jump and let
it pass under you, and defeat it from behind, an NES controller will appear,
which gives you 1,000 bonus points when obtained!


 ##### Other Obstacles ########################################################

     In addition, there are a few other obstacles scattered about that you
should keep an eye out for...

   Rock:  These rocks do what most other rocks do... just sit there.  They
can be destroyed with Rocks, but Axes merely bounce off them.  If you run into
a rock, Master Higgins will lose a few sticks of health and will stumble
forward a few steps.  Though they themselves are fairly un-deadly, stumbling
into a baddie or down a pit isn't exactly good for your health.
   Note that later in the game some Rocks are actually cleverly-disguised Pot
   Bonuses!  By running into them, you will still trip, but you won't lose any
   health, and the Rock will then turn into the Pot Bonus!  Unfortunately they
   are otherwise indistinguishable from normal Rocks, so the only way to
   uncover them is trial and error...

   Boulder:  These LARGE rocks typically come rolling down hills or through
caves, typically bouncing if they drop off a ledge.  These can also be destroyed
with Rocks of your own, but Axes are useless against them.  If you see one
of these coming, do your best to jump over it.

   Fire:  Campfires are also scattered about, and they are un-removable.  To
avoid a hot-foot, you'll have to jump over them.


 ##### Walkthrough ############################################################


   ##### Area 1, Round 1 ######################################################

 Type:  Light Forest

 1:  Move to the right and kick the egg you come across to receive an Axe.
     Continue right and defeat the Sneils with your axe, and jump over the
     Rocks in your path.
 2:  Kick open the next egg you reach to find a Skateboard, then continue
     right.  There is a hidden egg just before you reach the Cavas, which
     contains some Rocks!  Then continue right and you'll come out of the
     forest area.
 3:  Jump over the Campfire, and note the Totem Poles in the background.
     If you stand still in between the last two totems, a hidden platform
     will take you up to a Bonus Stage, which dumps you down to Section 4.
     Continue to the right and up the hill, but watch out for the Boulders
     that come rolling down.  Kick the egg open to free Honey Girl, then
     dash to the right.
 4:  Jump over the Fire and Pit, and continue right until you reach the
     Spring.  Stand on the edge of the ledge and jump to find a hidden
     egg, then jump onto the spring and vault up to the Pot Bonus.  Defeat
     the Kello, then jump across the platforms.  Once you reach the final
     ledge, stand its far left side and jump to uncover the egg which
     contains the Hudson Bee!  Make sure you get it, (if you want to be able
     to continue, that is) then proceed to the Goal.


   ##### Area 1, Round 2 ######################################################

 Type:  Ocean I

 1:  Jump onto the cloud, then down onto the island.  The egg contains a
     Skateboard -- very dangerous on a stage like this, so try to avoid it.
     Continue across the clouds, and when you reach the next island stand
     on its far right side and jump to uncover a hidden egg.  Continue
     across some more clouds to reach the next section.
 2:  All you have to do here is defeat or avoid the Octs as you make your
     way across the clouds.
 3:  Kick open the egg to free Honey Girl, then plow through the Octs and
     Pooters to rack up some points.  Continue across the clouds and watch
     out for the Waler, and you'll come to a series of descending clouds.
     Jump upon one as it floats down, then down onto the island.
 4:  Continue across the clouds and pick up the Pot Bonus as you jump along.
     When you reach the series of ascending clouds, just jump on one and
     continue right... just watch out for the very last cloud, as it drops
     out from underneath you as you jump upon it!


   ##### Area 1, Round 3 ######################################################

 Type:  Frozen Caves

 1:  Run right and pick up the Skateboard if you wish, then continue, making
     sure to watch out for the Bassers that swoop down from the ceiling.
     A few Boulders will come from the right just before you reach Section
     2, so watch out.
 2:  Free Honey Girl from the egg, then plow to the right through the
     Skulls and Rocks.  Jump up onto the brick area, and look for a hidden
     egg containing a Key just before you cross over into the Ice Area.
     Once you get it, jump onto the nearby platform and you'll be whisked
     up to a Bonus Stage, which drops you down to Section 3 (not very far).
 3:  The first Egg you come to contains a Flower, so grab it then drop
     down.  Carefully move right, watching out for the Icicles that drop
     down from above.  DON'T open the next egg as it contains an Eggplant,
     but there is a hidden egg cleverly placed just to the left of the
     visible egg.  Grab it's contents then jump over the Eggplant.  Continue
     right and you'll soon reach Section 4.
 4:  Move to the right, making sure to watch out for a boulder or two as
     you go, and soon you'll exit the frozen area.  Avoid the next egg
     if you can (Skateboard), then quickly onto the descending platform,
     then jump back off to the left, to the platform you came from.  As
     you do, a boulder will roll along the lower platform and drop into
     the pit.  Now wait for the next platform and ride it down just low
     enough to get the Pot Bonus, then jump to the ledge on the right.
     Move right along the final stretch, looking out for the several
     Bassers that are "guarding" the finish line. 


   ##### Area 1, Round 4 ######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest

 1:  Head right, either avoiding or defeating the Zigmos as you go, and
     collect the Pot Bonus (so early?).  Then just continue right, past
     the fire, rocks, Zigmos, and a couple of Cavas'.  The egg just before
     Section 2 contains some Milk!
 2:  The flower you see is the signal of a Coyote, so as you move right,
     keep an eye out for it.  Remember, if you defeat it from behind an
     NES Controller (1000 bonus points) will appear!  Shortly afterwards
     you can find another hidden egg (situated near a campfire).  Grab
     it, then continue right, past the Kello (careful), and onto Section 3.
 3:  Keep on going, and once you come out of the forest look out for
     another incoming Coyote.  From there it's just a short walk to
     Section 4.
 4:  Go up the hill (watch out for 2 Boulders that come down), and once
     you go down the other side, look in between the two rocks for another
     Hidden Egg.  (If you haven't lost any lives yet and found all the
     Hidden Eggs so far, you'll find your first Baby Higgins Doll here!!)
     Then move a short ways right to reach the Boss' area!

 Boss:  This boss is really slow and rather simple to defeat.  Just stand
        near the left side of the screen and jump into the air (make sure
        to hold B as you jump to get higher off the ground) and throw
        weapons at his head.  If he throws a fireball, just jump over it
        then continue as before.  After taking 8 hits his head will fall
        off (ouch?), and his second form will appear and run off towards
        the next area.  Area 1 is complete!!


   ##### Area 2, Round 1 ######################################################

 Type:  Ocean II

 1:  Open up the egg just near the start to find a Flower, move to
     the right past the Sneils, then start cloud-hopping as you did in
     Area 1-2.  The last cloud before you reach the next island drops
     out, so be careful.  Note that on the long island just before you
     reach Section 2, a hidden egg can be found!
 2:  Move quickly to the right across the next few clouds, then kick the
     egg on the next island to free Honey Girl.  Dash to the right through
     the army of Pooters (yikes!) and you'll reach Section 3 before you
     know it.
 3:  Get rid of the Kello, then continue across the next few small islands.
     The slightly larger island houses another hidden egg (found near it's
     right edge).  Head across the moving clouds and grab the Pot Bonus,
     and move onto the next section.
 4:  As you jump onto the first cloud, watch out for a Waler that comes
     from the right.  Continue to the right, avoiding one more Waler, and
     do one last little bit of cloud-hopping to reach the Goal!


   ##### Area 2, Round 2 ######################################################

 Type:  Underground Temple

 1:  Break open the egg to find a flower ripe for picking, then move right
     past the rocks and hordes of Bassers.  Jump over the fires and look
     out for a few incoming Boulders just before you reach Section 2.
 2:  Get the Skateboard in the next egg (if you're feeling bold that is),
     then jump onto the hovering platform.  Wait for a boulder to roll down
     from the platform above, then jump up there to enter the brick area.
     Head to the right and get rid of the Kello, then spring up to the
     ledge above, grabbing the Pot Bonus along the way.  Move to the right
     to reach the next section...
 3:  As you make your way up the 'steps' watch for an incoming boulder,
     then jump onto the pair of platforms.  They will rise up as you do,
     giving you access to the ledge above.  Continue to the right and
     soon you'll reach Section 4.
 4:  Break the egg here to obtain some Milk, then move right (beware the
     falling platform), and look for a hidden egg just after the blue
     background suddenly stops.  Get rid of the Kello and continue right
     to come back to the cave area once more.  Board the platform then
     scoot right past the skulls to reach the Goal!


   ##### Area 2, Round 3 ######################################################

 Type:  Underground Building

 1:  Once again, start off by picking up the Flower in the egg, then
     continue right.  The platforms will move once you board them, so
     wait for them to carry you across the pits rather than trying to
     make the jumps.
 2:  Jump onto the platform, then to the ledge above, and get the
     Skateboard if you wish.  Once you enter the temple area, be careful
     as you jump onto the platforms as a few of them will drop out from
     under you.  You'll be greeted by two Kellos and some Pooters before
     you reach Section 3... deal with them accordingly.
 3:  Most of this section is a series of platforms you must jump across
     (somewhat like the cloud-hopping of the ocean levels).  There's not
     much to note here, just beware the final platform, as it drops out.
 4:  Move to the right and you'll soon come to another platform-hopping
     area.  Be careful when you reach the next ledge, as two Kellos are
     there waiting for you!  Move to the right, hopping along a few
     more platforms (and be sure to grab the Pot Bonus too!), and you'll
     soon reach the Goal.


   ##### Area 2, Round 4 ######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest (Mirror of X-4)

 1:  Move right, jumping over the Fire as you go, and take out (or, if you
     have no weapon, jump in between) the Zigmos.  Just continue right, past
     all the enemies (there are quite a few of them).  Break open the egg
     just before you reach section 2 to obtain a Flower!
 2:  Watch for 2 Coyotes as you continue to the right, then move to the
     right through the mostly-quiet section.  Defeat the Kellos (there are
     two this time), then move onward.  Just after the springboard, there
     will be a lone rock just before the beginning of Section 3.  Run into
     it (yes, trust me on this one) and it will turn into the Pot Bonus!!
 3:  Look out for a Coyote near the beginning of this section, then continue
     right past the many Zigmos.  Watch for another Coyote shortly before
     you come to Section 4.
 4:  Go up the hill (watch out for the 2 Boulders that come down), and look
     out for the rocks as you go down the other side (no hidden egg this time).
     The Boss' area is just a short distance to the right!

 Boss:  This time around, the Boss is a bit faster, and he will take 10
        hits with your weapon to defeat rather than 8.  Regardless, all
        you have to do is use the same strategy you used last time... stand
        near the left side of the screen, jump up and throw your weapons
        at his head (and jump over any fireballs he throws, of course).
        Once he is defeated again, his third form will appear and he will
        retreat to the next area.  Area 2 is complete!!


   ##### Area 3, Round 1 ######################################################

 Type:  Temple

 1:  This is one of the hardest levels in the game... not so much now but
     when it recurs later in the game it will become excruciatingly difficult.
     Break open the egg to find a Skateboard (should you choose to use it), 
     then continue right past the rocks.  Continue to the right past a
     couple of Kellos, and you'll see a suspicious-looking rock under the
     elevating platforms.  Run into it (yes, trust me again) and it
     will turn into the Pot Bonus!  Grab it then board the platform, and
     ride up to the ledge above.  Watch out for the pair of Bassers as you
     move onto Section 2.
 2:  Watch out for the sinking platform and break the egg (don't kick it
     lest it fall down into the pit!) and pick the Flower, then walk onto
     the platform and it will rise up.  Likewise the other platform will
     begin to move downward.  Make your way across to the ledge on the
     right, then take out the Kellos on your way down the steps.  Once you
     reach the bottom, sit still for a few seconds and a platform will take
     you up to a bonus stage that drops you down to Section 3!
 3:  Open up the egg to obtain some ever-useful Milk, then jump onto the
     moving platform.  This next part is a bit tricky as you will have to
     jump from platform to platform, all of which are moving (some at
     different speeds!).  Once you manage to make it across, breathe a
     sigh of relief and continue to Section 4.
 4:  Jump over the fire and watch out for a boulder on your way up the steps.
     Now get ready for another tricky part.  You will have to jump from
     platform to platform again, but every other platform will drop out!
     Barrel through at full speed, timing your jumps on the dropping
     platforms carefully, and you'll be able to make it across to the Goal.
     Whew!!


   ##### Area 3, Round 2 ######################################################

 Type:  Mountains

 1:  Break open the egg to get a Skateboard, then run up the hill.  Beware
     the Cavas' at the top.  Just continue along, making sure to watch out
     for the boulders along the way, and you'll soon reach Section 2.
 2:  Kick open the egg to receive a Flower, then run uphill once more.
     Watch out for the fires on your way back down, and the Cobras on your
     way back up again.
 3:  You'll find another Skateboard here if you wish to use it.  Beware the
     2 Coyotes that appear as you go down the hill, then continue right.
     You'll soon notice a Kello that is facing in the opposite direction!
     DON'T kill it... instead jump over it and run like heck as it will
     start chasing you!  Run down the hill and it will continue chasing
     you, but after leaping four times it will suddenly change into the
     Pot Bonus!  Snatch it up, and continue down the hill.
 4:  Kick open the egg to free Honey Girl, then barrel through the rest
     of the stage, racking up scores of points along the way!


   ##### Area 3, Round 3 ######################################################

 Type:  Ocean I (Mirror of 1-2)

 1:  Jump onto the cloud (beware, as it drops out), then down onto the island.
     Kick open the egg to obtain a Flower then do some cloud-hopping to
     the right.  You'll soon reach the next section.  Note that just before 
     the Signpost that reads "2", there is a hidden egg!
 2:  This section is rather simple... just defeat or avoid the Octs as you
     hop across the clouds.  When you reach the large island, look for
     another hidden egg a few steps inward!
 3:  Break open the egg to free Honey Girl, then run like heck through the
     Rocks, Octs, Pooters, and everything else that gets in your way.  If
     you're quick enough, you can make through the entire section before your
     invincibility wears off.
 4:  Continue across the clouds, and soon you will come to the Pot Bonus,
     amongst a series of ascending clouds.  As soon as a cloud emerges from
     the bottom, run over onto it, hopefully picking up the Pot Bonus on your
     way down.  Then ride the cloud up, and over onto the next cloud.  Watch
     out for a couple of Cavas' as you head along the final stretch!


   ##### Area 3, Round 4 ######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest (Mirror of X-4)

 1:  You'll soon find there are many more Zigmos in this stage than there
     have been before.  Move to the right, defeating or avoiding them as
     per usual.  After you pass the fire pits, beware of a large flock of
     Cavas' that come flying in from the right.  Kick open the egg just
     before the signpost to receive a Flower!
 2:  Take out the Coyote near the beginning of this section, then move
     to the right.  Get rid of the green Kello, then as you move right
     you'll notice more of them (three this time).  Defeat or jump over
     them, then continue to the right.  The egg just past the springboard
     is an Eggplant, so avoid it!
 3:  There are several Coyotes in this section, so keep on your toes.
     Move to the right, past two of them, and get rid of the Zigmos in
     your way.  Bypass another Coyote (and some more Zigmos) to exit the
     forest area, where one more Coyote is waiting.  Jump over the fires
     and continue onto Section 4.
 4:  Run into the first Rock you see to uncover the Pot Bonus, then run
     up the hill, watching out for the rest of the Rocks (and boulders).
     After a short walk you'll reach the Boss' Area!

 Boss:  First, be careful as you jump across the platforms leading to the
        Boss... from now on the first platform will drop out once you jump
        upon it.  Once again the Boss is slightly faster than before,
        and also throws fireballs more often, so make sure to avoid those
        as you jump and strike at his head.  If he starts getting too close,
        stand still a while and let his fireballs pass over your head, and
        wait for him to back up a bit before resuming your attack pattern.
        This time it will take 12 strikes with your weapon to take him down.
        Once he is defeated, his fourth form will appear and retreat to the
        next area.  Area 3 is now complete!!


   ##### Area 4, Round 1 ######################################################

 Type:  Light Forest (Mirror of 1-1)

 1:  This is a mirror of the first stage, but things aren't exactly as you
     remember them!  Head right past the Cobras and kick open the egg to
     free Honey Girl.  Plow through the Sneils and obstacles in your path,
     and you'll soon reach Section 2!
 2:  Open the egg to obtain a skateboard, then move to the right, past the
     myriad rocks in your way.  Fight your way past the flocks of Cavas'
     that fly in from the right, and once you exit the forest area, you'll
     reach Section 3.
 3:  Move to the right (no bonus stage in between the totems this time),
     then run up the hill, watching out for the many boulders that come
     tumbling down.  Kick open the egg for a Flower, then make your way
     past the group of Cobras to Section 4.
 4:  Continue along until you reach a group of three rocks.  The rock on
     the far right is actually the Pot Bonus but you will have to be
     careful not to A) Accidentally destroy the rock,  B) Stumble into
     the Sneils, or C) Hit one of the other rocks instead.  Grab it, then
     use the Springboard to clear the large gap.  Get rid of the Kellos
     and jump across the last few platforms to the Goal!


   ##### Area 4, Round 2 ######################################################

 Type:  Wasteland

 1:  This is another very hard type of stage, as food can be quite scarce
     at times, meaning you will have to be quick in getting through the
     stage.  Move to the right and up the "steps", watching out for the
     Boulder that comes down, and kick the egg open to obtain a Flower.
     Continue upwards past a Sneil and some Cavas', as well as boulders
     and Kellos once you near the top.
 2:  There is no food whatsoever in this section so move quickly!  Run
     right and up the steps, and search in between the fires for a
     hidden egg.  Continue up and trip the Rock at the top for the
     Pot Bonus, then run down the other side.  You'll soon reach
     Section 3.
 3:  There is still no food around, so hurry!  After a bit of walking
     you'll reach an egg containing some milk.. so GRAB IT!  The food
     supply returns at this point, so relax a bit.  Continue past the
     fires and rocks to reach the final stretch of this area.
 4:  Some Cavas' and even some Bassers (outside?) will attempt to ambush
     you as you head along the final stretch, but nothing much to worry
     about.  If you made it this far, you're pretty much home-free, only
     a short distance to the finish line.  =)


   ##### Area 4, Round 3 ######################################################

 Type:  Ice Temple

 1:  This entire stage is iced over, so you have to worry about both the
     horrible traction of the ground, as well as the Icicles who want to
     drop in on you.  Kick open the egg to find the routine Flower, then
     continue to the right past the skulls and (of course) Icicles.
 2:  Continue to the right, jumping over a few fires and as always, dodging
     Icicles.  Break open the egg to obtain some (likely frozen) Milk, and
     do a _walking_ jump over the next pit to avoid being speared by the
     cleverly-placed Icicle on the other side.  Continue to the right across
     a couple of frozen platforms, and you'll soon reach section 3.
 3:  Trip the rock on your way up the steps to uncover the Pot Bonus, then
     jump across the frozen platforms.  Do a walking jump off the final
     platform as to once again dodge a cleverly-placed incoming Icicle.
     Continue along and jump across several small ledges, but stop once
     the Cavas comes into view.  On this platform you'll find a hidden
     egg containing a Key, which activates the platform just to the right,
     whisking you up to a Bonus Stage!  You'll be dropped off right at
     the start of Section 4.
 4:  Move right, past a bunch of annoying Skulls, and on your way back up
     watch out for some Zigmos and a Kello.  Hop across a couple more ledges
     a few moving frozen platforms, and you'll find yourself at the finish
     line.  Goal!!


   ##### Area 4, Round 4 ######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest (Mirror of X-4)

 1:  Head to the right past the hordes of Zigmos, then hop your way over
     the fires and rocks.  Continue right, past more Zigmos and a few
     Cavas', and crack open the egg near the signpost to receive a
     Flower.
 2:  Take out the Coyote near the beginning of this section, then move
     to the right.  You'll soon meet a group of Kellos (four this time...
     noticing a trend here?) -- defeat or jump over them as usual, and
     be sure to look for a hidden egg shortly after the last Kello.  Use
     the springboard to vault up to the Pot Bonus (out in the open this
     time...?), just watch out for the Fires on your way back down!
 3:  Crack open the egg nearby to free Honey Girl, and then dash like
     mad through the hordes of Zigmos and Pooters.  If you're quick
     enough, you can make it all the way through the section, getting
     rid of those last three Kellos with your final seconds of
     invincibility.
 4:  Run up the hill, avoiding rocks and boulders as usual.  There is a
     hidden egg in between some rocks just before you reach the boss,
     so be sure to look for it.  Then, continue onto the Boss area!

 Boss:  Once again... the Boss is faster than before, and this time will
        take 14 strikes with a weapon to defeat.  Defeat him the same
        way you defeated the last boss... just continually jump up and
        strike his head, jumping over or ducking under the periodic
        fireball he throws.  When he moves in close, sit still for a few
        seconds, wait for him to back up a bit, then resume your attack.
        Once he is defeated, his next form will appear as always, and
        he'll flee to the next area.  Area 4 is complete!


   ##### Area 5, Round 1 ######################################################

 Type:  Ocean II (Mirror of 2-1)

 1:  Open up the egg just near the start to find a Flower, move to
     the right past the Sneils.  Run into the very last Sneil to uncover the
     Pot Bonus (yes, they are hidden in ENEMIES now), and look for a hidden egg
     right near the far-right edge of the island... it contains a Key!  Grab
     it, then head to the right across a few clouds, and the bluer-colored
     one will whisk you up to the Bonus Stage.  You'll then be dropped off
     at Section 2.
 2:  Move to the right across the clouds (most of them drop out), and kick
     open the egg once you reach the next island to find a Skateboard.
     Fight your way past the Pooters and watch out for a stray boulder (?)
     as well.  Watch out for the Cavas' as you jump over the fire pits.
 3:  Get rid of the pair of Kellos, then continue to the right.  Be sure
     to look for a hidden egg on the edge of the island just past the Kellos.
     Head right across several smaller islands and you'll soon reach Section 4.
 4:  Watch for a few incoming Walers as you hop across the clouds in the final 
     stretch.  There is one last hidden egg just before the Signpost, so be
     sure to grab it before you cross the finish line!


   ##### Area 5, Round 2 ######################################################

 Type:  Underground Building (Mirror of 2-3)

 1:  Kick open the egg to find the routine Flower, then head onto the right,
     past Bassers and Boulders.  Look out for the Kello hiding behind the rock,
     and as you jump onto the next platform, watch for an incoming pair of
     Cavas before you leap over the campfire.
 2:  Get the Skateboard if you wish, then run past the Cobras and across the
     platforms.  Continue past a pair of Kellos, and run into the first of the
     incoming Pooters to find the Pot Bonus.
 3:  Just jump across the various platforms and ledges in this section... not
     much to note here...
 4:  Move right and you'll hit another platform-hopping area (most of which
     move around).  Again, be careful when you reach the next ledge, as two
     Kellos are waiting for you!  Hop across the few last platforms (some
     Bassers are here to annoy you this time around), and you'll reach the
     Goal!


   ##### Area 5, Round 3 ######################################################

 Type:  Temple (Mirror of 3-1)

 1:  This is a much harder version of Round 3-1, so prepare yourself, because
     it only gets worse from here.  Grab the Skateboard in the egg (or not),
     then jump across the rocks, and take out the Cavas, Pooter, and Basser.
     Hop over the fires and across the platform, then start down the steps.
     Avoid the egg (Eggplant) as well as the Kellos as you make your way down.
     Once you reach the bottom, head past the Cobra and trio of Bassers, and
     ride the platform up to the ledge above.  Watch for a Kello and a few
     more Bassers before you reach Section 2.
 2:  Look out for the egg (Skateboard), and jump across the elevating platforms
     to the other ledge.  Go down the steps, looking out for more Kellos along
     the way, and before you drop down to the area with the platform, look for
     a hidden egg on the right edge of the ledge above.  Ride the platform up,
     and leap across the springs.  The middle of the three rocks is the Pot
     Bonus, so trip it and collect your prize before moving on.
 3:  Grab the Milk inside the egg, then jump across the series of moving
     platforms, watching out for those annoying Bassers as you go.  Take your
     time on this part, as many of the platforms move at different speeds.
 4:  Jump over the fire and watch out for the boulders as you make your way
     up the steps.  Now brace yourself for the (very hard) final stretch.
     This time ALL the platforms drop out (as opposed to every other one in
     3-1), so barrel across, staying on each platform as you long as you can
     before jumping to the next.  Once you manage to make it safely across,
     you can take a breather before crossing the goal line.


   ##### Area 5, Round 4 ######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest (Mirror of X-4)

 1:  There are tons of Zigmos in the first part of this area, so move cautiously.
     Jump over the fire pit and rock, then run right past a few more Zigmos.
     Look out for a pair of Cavas' and a Cobra, and kick the egg over into
     Section 2 to receive some Milk.
 2:  Take out the Coyote near the beginning of this section, then move
     to the right.  Hop the rocks and fire pits, then brave the group of
     Kellos (five this time, strange that!).  Then proceed onto Section 3.
 3:  A Kello facing in the other direction will greet you near the beginning
     of this section, as in Round 3-2.  Defeat him if you can, but if you have
     no weapon you'll have to run to the right whilst he chases you down!
     Continue past the next Zigmo area, and look out for an incoming Coyote as
     you exit out into the open.  Trip the suspicious-looking Sneil just before
     Section 4 to receive your Pot Bonus!
 4:  Look for a hidden egg shortly after the marker, then run up the hill,
     watching for some Boulders and a Kello as you go.  Run down the other
     side and continue on to reach the Boss area!

 Boss:  Have we done this before?  As expected, this boss functions just as
        all the others have, albeit more quickly.  Use the same old strategy
        (jump, throw weapons, -yawn-, repeat), and after 16 hits his sixth
        form will appear and escape.  On to Area 6!!


   ##### Area 6, Round 1 #######################################################

 Type:  Ocean I  (Mirror of 1-2/3-3)

 1:  Make a BIG jump across the first gap, but try not to hit the egg as you
     land, lest a very-cruelly placed Eggplant drain all of your health away.
     Then start cloud-hopping as normal, defeating or avoiding the hordes of
     Octs along the way.  Look out for a Rock and some Sneils once you reach
     the next island, then hop across a few more clouds (most of which move)
     to reach the next section...
 2:  After another bit of cloud-hopping you'll reach an island with a very
     suspicious-looking Cobra on it.  Run on into him to receive your Pot
     Bonus, then take out the Pooter and proceed onward.
 3:  Kick the egg on the next island to find a Skateboard, then move right
     past the rocks, Octs, and boulders, while watching out for the incoming
     Coyote (ick).  Once that's out of the way, get rid of the Kello and
     Pooter group, and search for a hidden egg just near the edge of the
     island.  Watch for a Waler as you do the next bit of cloud-hopping,
     as well as a stray boulder as you reach the island before section 4.
 4:  Continue across the clouds as per usual, dodging the Octs and Walers
     that come at you, and look out for a small flock of Cavas' just before
     you reach the Goal.  Once they're out of the way you can proceed onto
     the finish line!


   ##### Area 6, Round 2 #######################################################

 Type:  Frozen Caves (Mirror of 1-3)

 1:  Get the Skateboard if you so wish, then move on to the right.  There are
     a lot of Bassers waiting for you, so be careful.  When you come to the
     lone rock in the path, position yourself a short way to the right of it
     and sit still for a few seconds, and you'll be taken up to a Bonus Stage!
     You'll be delivered to the beginning of Section 2 afterwards.
 2:  Head right past another Skateboard, and after you pass the flaming skulls,
     look out for a boulder that will come charging from behind you.  Once you
     reach the brick area get rid of the Kello, and look for a hidden egg on
     the bottom ledge, just before you cross over into the frozen area.
 3:  If you have a weapon, be sure to get rid of the Kello facing to the right,
     lest he will chase you through the better part of this section!  Kick the
     egg to find a Flower, then move right.  Use the springboard to grab the
     Pot Bonus, and avoid the next egg as you did in 1-3, as it contains an
     Eggplant.
 4:  Watch out for incoming boulders from both sides as you climb the stairs,
     and avoiding the next egg once you come back into the cave area would be
     a good idea, as it contains a skateboard.  Make a large jump back down
     into the cave area, then move onward past the flock of Bassers to the Goal!


   ##### Area 6, Round 3 #######################################################

 Type:  Wasteland (Mirror of 4-2)

 1:  Chances are you're not too happy to see this level again.  Head up the
     steps and break the egg to find a Flower, then continue onward and upward,
     past the large flock of Cavas'.  Beware the Kello once you reach the top...
     he's in a pretty advantageous position to jump down atop you.  Bypass two
     more Kellos and some Cobras to reach the next section.
 2:  The lack of food will hit you hard in this section, so move through as
     fast as you can.  Head up the steps past the cruelly-placed skulls and
     boulder, and jump over the trio of fire pits near the top.  Continue
     upwards a line of skulls (you have no choice but to get rid of these it
     would seem), and down the other side past a couple of Kellos.  Dispatch
     all the Cobras and Pooters, and continue downwards to reach Section 3.
 3:  There's still no food around for a bit, so keep the pace up.  Kick open
     the egg to free Honey Girl, then dash through the next area filled with Skulls
     and Rocks.  The Campfire at the end of it contains the Pot Bonus, so be
     sure to trip it (even if Honey Girl is still around the Pot Bonus will
     appear).  Avoid the next egg -- it's an Eggplant, which is a heartless
     killer in a stage like this -- but note there is a hidden egg directly to
     the right of it.  Pick it up if you wish, then continue to the final section.
 4:  Use the series of springboards to safely vault across the pits, and kick
     open the egg to find some much-needed Milk.  Continue across the next
     springboard but do your best not to land on the next egg -- it's _another_
     Eggplant.  In case you're curious, yes it is possible to have two
     Eggplants torturing you at the same time.  Continue downwards past the
     skulls, and beware a boulder just as you reach the Goal.


   ##### Area 6, Round 4 #######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest (Mirror of X-4)

 1:  Considering this is our sixth time through it, one would ought to have this
     stage memorized by now.  Move right past the Zigmos and jump over the fire
     pits as per usual.  A small group of Cavas' and a Cobra will greet you
     before you reach the next section, but not much to worry about.  Be sure
     to open the egg... it contains a Flower, or Milk if you kick it over into
     Section 2.
 2:  Get rid of the Coyote at the beginning of this section, then continue past
     the campfires and rocks.  Once you reach the routine group of Kellos, you
     can find a hidden egg (look for it in front of where the first Kello is
     sitting).  After defeating or dodging all of them (six, as you could have
     guessed), take out the Zigmos and use the Springboard to vault over the
     rocks and campfire.  Collide with the wandering Pooter to receive your
     Pot Bonus, then proceed onto section 3.
 3:  After bypassing another small army of Zigmos, you'll come out into the
     open, as you always have at this point in the stage.  Dash past the
     Zigmo formation (you'll have to leap over or defeat the last two), and
     get rid of the Coyote that charges up behind you.
 4:  Run up the hill past rocks and boulders, and leap over the several fire
     pits as you reach the top.  Look out for a Kello as you land, then proceed
     onward to the boss!

 Boss:  Once again, it's your friendly neighborhood Witch Doctor, only this time
        faster and more powerful than before.  First note that from now on BOTH
        platforms leading up to the boss will drop out from underneath you, so
        be quick as you jump across (i.e don't fall).  Once you meet up with him,
        perform the normal strategy (you should know it by now ;).  After 18 hits
        with your weapon, his seventh form will appear, and retreat.  Onward to
        Area 7!


   ##### Area 7, Round 1 #######################################################

 Type:  Ice Temple (Mirror of 4-3)

 1:  If Area 4-3 wasn't hard enough for you, here's a more difficult version of it.
     Move to the right as always, and break open the egg to find a Flower.  Proceed
     past the flaming skulls and Icicles (they make such a great pair, eh?), but
     after you leap over the campfire, look out for a boulder that decides it wants
     to bowl you over.  Avoid it, and proceed onto section 2.
 2:  Get rid of the Kello (as annoying as ever), and watch out for two more of them
     once you reach the bottom platform (and with Icicles falling down from above..
     great).  Leap over the fire pits and then the series of rocks, and then be
     careful of an oddly-placed Zigmo.  There is also a hidden egg somewhere around
     here, but I'm not sure exactly where.  Anyway, continue onward to reach
     section 3.
 3:  Leap over the rocks as you climb up the "steps", as well as the fire pit at
     the top.  Note that just past the fire pit is a hidden egg should you wish to
     snag its contents.  Traverse the moving platforms, but look out for a few
     Zigmos who are out to make things (more) difficult.  Once you come to the
     series of small platforms, carefully jump across avoiding yet more Zigmos,
     and you'll reach a springboard.  This next part is rather cruel, as you'll
     have to do a running jump onto the springboard to get the Pot Bonus and land
     safely on the other side, but there is an Eggplant waiting for you, which
     you will most likely land on if you try for the Pot Bonus.  Caveat Emptor.
     However if you're really good, you can get the Pot Bonus, then land on the
     very edge of the platform, and quickly jump again to clear the egg.  It's a
     difficult maneuver, but it can be done.  Then proceed on to section 4.
 4:  Head down the steps past the Bassers and Skulls, as well as several Kellos
     on your way back up.  Look for a hidden egg once you reach the top, then
     jump across the last few moving platforms to reach the Goal!!


   ##### Area 7, Round 2 #######################################################

 Type:  Ocean II (Mirror of 2-1/5-1)

 1:  Kick open the egg to find a Flower, then run along the island past numerous
     Sneils and Octs.  Be sure to look for a hidden egg near the edge of the
     island as well.  After a bit of cloud-hopping you'll reach the next island
     where there is a backwards Kello waiting to chase you into Section 2.  If
     you have a weapon, get rid of him now to save yourself the trouble.
 2:  Quickly jump across the three clouds (all of which fall out.. be careful),
     then in between the fire pits onto the next island.  The egg contains a
     Skateboard, should you wish to use it.  The first incoming Pooter is
     actually the Pot Bonus, but considering the circumstances it could be
     a bit difficult to trip her and not get either fried or bitten by the
     Oct in the process.  Continue along the island past many Pooters and a few
     boulders, and watch for a few Cavas' as you leap over the fire pits.
 3:  Get rid of the three Kellos near the beginning of this section, and look
     for a hidden egg at the very edge of the island.  Then all you have to do
     is hop across the next few islands to reach the final section.  If you
     have a weapon, you can stand on the clouds and pick off the Octs that are
     hanging around each island to make things easier.
 4:  Watch for a couple of incoming Walers as you hop across the clouds here,
     and once you reach the series of elevating clouds, wait for a pair to
     descend, then quickly jump onto the bottom cloud, up to the top cloud,
     then over to the ledge above.  Then just make a leap down onto the last
     island to reach the finish line!


   ##### Area 7, Round 3 #######################################################

 Type:  Underground Building (Mirror of 2-3/5-2)

 1:  OK, who turned off all the color?  This cavern looks very... well, grey,
     but at least you'll have no problem seeing where you're going.  Open up
     the egg to find a Flower, then move to the right past a few Bassers and
     a boulder.  Continue onward past a Kello and a Coyote, and before leaping
     over the fire pit, look out for a flock of Cavas' incoming from the right.
     Then you can safely proceed onward to section 2.
 2:  Open the egg to find a Skateboard, then proceed past the pair of Cobras
     (and boulders).  Hop across the next few ledges, taking out the skulls and
     occassional Cobra that get in your way, and once you reach the lone rock,
     watch out for a pair of Kellos just behind it.  Go past the next rock and
     Pooter group to reach Section 3.
 3:  As before, the object of this section is to hop across the various platforms.
     All you'll need to do is make sure you avoid the obstacles as you jump from
     platform to platform.  You can find the Pot Bonus at the end of this section,
     as well.  First stand on the next-to-last platform (the one just left of the
     Pot Bonus), and inch forward until a Boulder rolls in from the right and off
     the ledge.  Then, jump to the next platform and it will drop.  Stay on it
     long enough to grab the Pot Bonus, then jump to the next ledge.  Then proceed
     to the final section.
 4:  Hop across a few ledges to reach a series of moving platforms in which some
     Bassers and Cavas' will attempt to ambush you.  Take it slowly and you should
     be able to avoid them easily enough.  Head past the group of Kellos once you
     reach the next ledge, and hop across a few more moving platforms (once again,
     watch out for the Bassers) to reach the Goal!


   ##### Area 7, Round 4 #######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest (Mirror of X-4)

 1:  This stage should have been laid to rest a long time ago, yet here it is
     again in it's seventh incarnation.  As always, move right past the army of
     Zigmos (without a weapon this will indeed be quite difficult).  When you
     reach a pair of Rocks, look out for a few incoming Cavas', then exterminate
     the backwards Kello to avoid having him chase you into the next section.
     Kick the egg into Section 2 to receive some Milk and continue.
 2:  A Coyote appears once again at the beginning of this section, so avoid or
     defeat him, then head past the rocks and fire pits.  Jump over a pair of
     fire pits, and get ready to face down the Kellos as usual (you guessed
     it -- seven of them this time).  Use the springboards to get you across
     the campfires and rocks, but don't open the egg as it's an eggplant.  Icky.
 3:  In Section 3, first get rid of another large group of Zigmos, and you'll
     come out into the open.  Dash past the line of Zigmos (once again, leap
     over the last two), and get rid of the incoming Coyote once you pass.
     Three Pooters will move in from the right... the last one moves a bit
     slower than the others, making it look a tad suspicious.  You guessed it,
     it's the Pot Bonus.  Collide with it and grab your prize, then proceed
     onto Section 4.
 4:  Rocks and boulders litter the path as you climb the hill, so look out for
     them as well as pair of Pooters as you near the top.  Jump over the three
     fire pits and note a hidden egg located directly to the right of the last
     campfire.  Bypass one last Kello and four rocks, and proceed onto the
     Boss's lair!

 Boss:  For the seventh time, you must face down the Witch Doctor.  For the
        seventh time, he is tougher and faster then before.  And for the
        seventh time, all you have to do is use the same old strategy.
        Jump and fire your weapons at his head, stopping every now and then
        to leap over a fireball he throws.  Surely nothing you haven't done
        before.  After taking 20 hits, his final form will appear and run
        off to the final area.  Now only Area 8 remains...


   ##### Area 8, Round 1 #######################################################

 Type:  Wasteland (Mirror of 4-2/6-3)

 1:  Area 8 starts in full force as this torturous level appears... again.
     Move right and climb the steps, watching out for a boulder that tumbles down.
     Kick open the egg for a flower, then proceed upwards past a horde of baddies.
     About halfway up you can find a hidden egg... be sure to look for it.  Look
     out for more baddies (particularly Kellos) as you near the top.  At the top
     you'll cross over in Section 2.
 2:  You'll have to shift into high gear again as there is absolutely no food in
     this area.  Head up the steps past the pairs of Skulls and Kellos, and
     incoming boulders will make things even more difficult.  Kellos galore will
     greet you as you go down the other side... just jump over them.  At the
     bottom is another hidden egg.. if you have a good amount of health remaining
     be sure to look around for it.
 3:  You can find another hidden egg just after a marker should you wish to get
     it, then run to the right.  The egg contains some ever-useful Milk... drink
     it up for a health recharge.  Descend down the "steps" past all kinds of
     rocks and Skulls, and when you reach a pair of rocks atop a raised platform,
     trip the one on the right to find the Pot Bonus.  If you sit still on the
     steps before you reach the group of Bassers (not too far from the Pot Bonus),
     you can ride up to a Bonus Stage!
 4:  Use the springboards to vault over the fire pits, and kick open the egg
     for some more Milk.  Do a running jump onto the springboard, and you can
     clear the rocks and egg at the bottom (Eggplant) as well as the Kello.
     Continue onward past a few more Skulls and Kellos to reach the finish
     line.  Phew!!


   ##### Area 8, Round 2 #######################################################

 Type:  Ocean I (Mirror of 1-2/3-3/6-1)

 1:  Here in 8-2 the Ocean stage suddenly gets very rough.  First make a BIG jump
     down to the island below (no Eggplant this time, thankfully), then start
     cloud-hopping to the right past hordes of Octs and Walers (yes, Walers will
     come at you almost non-stop during this stage.  Erk.).  Make another large
     jump onto the next island, then continue cloud-hopping past a few more
     Walers.  You'll soon reach Section 2!
 2:  Start your cloud-hopping escapade once again, still watching for those Octs
     and ultra-annoying Walers.  Once you manage to make it to the next island,
     search in front of the palm tree for a hidden egg.  Get rid of the lone
     Pooter and proceed to Section 3.
 3:  Jump to the next island and kick open the egg to free Honey Girl!  Dash
     like mad through anything and everything that gets in your path, and with
     any luck you will be able to make it all the way to the final section before
     your invincibility wears off.
 4:  Search at the edge of the island for a hidden egg, then start cloud-hopping
     across the final section.  Walers and Octs galore are here to greet you
     as always, so proceed with caution.  Be sure to grab the Pot Bonus as you
     hop along the clouds, and look out for a couple of Cavas' after you pass
     by the elevating clouds.  Make one last jump across the last two clouds,
     and cross the finish line!


   ##### Area 8, Round 3 #######################################################

 Type:  Temple (Mirror of 3-1/5-3)

 1:  I told you it was coming, and here it is.  8-3 is by far the hardest stage
     in the game, as you'll soon see.  Grab the Skateboard if you wish (not
     recommended), then move right past the rocks and fire pits.  Make sure to
     avoid both the Kellos and the egg on the way down the steps (it's an
     Eggplant, which you certainly don't need), and use the platforms to ride
     up to the ledge above.  Take out the Basser as you drop down, then move
     onto Section 2.
 2:  Open the egg to find yet another Skateboard (or just kick it off the ledge
     and be gone with it), then use the platforms to jump up to the ledge above.
     Look for a hidden egg at the top of the steps, then move downwards past
     Skulls, Kellos, and boulders.  Use the elevating platform to jump up to
     the ledge above, then clear the springboards to reach Section 3.
 3:  Kick open the egg to receive some milk.  Jump across the moving platforms,
     while watching out for the Bassers that swoop down upon you.  This part
     isn't fun at all, especially if you don't have a weapon.  Look for a hidden
     egg on the very edge of the ledge once you make it across, then proceed
     onto the last section.
 4:  Jump over the fire pits and boulders as you climb the steps, then when
     you reach the top, inch forward until the fire pit on the left passes
     out of sight.  Now get ready for the hardest section in the entire game.
     If you'll remember from 5-3, all the platforms will drop out, so you
     will have to go at full speed, but this time you also have Bassers to
     worry about!!  All I can say is... good luck.  When you do finally manage
     to make it across, trip the fire pit on the final platform to obtain the
     Pot Bonus, and cross the finish line!


   ##### Area 8, Round 4 #######################################################

 Type:  Dark Forest (Mirror of X-4)

 1:  This is it... the final stage, even though we've seen it seven times
     already.  Head to the right past the hordes of Zigmos (note that you
     can find a hidden egg just under the first very Zigmo), as well as a
     couple of out-of-place Kellos.  As before, look out for some Cavas'
     as you jump across the rocks during the final part of this section, and
     kick the egg into Section 2 to receive some Milk!
 2:  Dispatch the incoming Coyote and continue right.  Note that just before
     the first rock another hidden egg can be found.  Jump over the rocks
     (be careful not to hit any or else you will trip almost continuously
     across them!), then jump over a few fire pits to reach the stage's
     sect of Kellos (eight of them, as expected).  As always, use the
     springboard to vault over the obstacles, then take out the backwards
     Kello to be rid of the nuisance.
 3:  Move right past more hordes of Zigmos, but avoid the egg -- it's an
     Eggplant.  Look for a hidden egg shortly afterwards (there sure are
     a lot of those around here, aren't there?), then continue onward to
     come out into the open.  Dash past the line of Zigmos, but jump over
     the last two, as always, then get rid of the Kello before dealing
     with the Coyote.
 4:  Watch for a couple of rocks and boulders as you climb up the hill and
     note that the very first fire pit at the top of the hill is the final Pot
     Bonus.  Make sure you are facing LEFT when you trip it, else you will
     trip right into the other fire pits!  Get it, then leap the remaining
     fire pits and dispatch one last Kello.  Destroy the line of rocks and
     proceed onto the final battle with the Witch Doctor!

 Boss:  There's nowhere for the Witch Doctor to run this time.  He is now in
        his most powerful form, meaning he is extremely fast and can take many
        hits (??) before dying, but unfortunately his pattern is exactly the
        same as the previous bosses.  Therefore, treat him as such, and use
        the normal boss strategy on him.  Hopefully you've had enough practice
        fighting bosses up to this point that he won't be all that tough to
        defeat.  ;)


    Once the Witch Doctor is defeated once and for all, you'll see the very
generic ending in which Master Higgins saves his sweetheart, Tina.
Congratulations, you've finished the game!  Now Master Higgins and Tina can
live happily ever after... or at least until Adventure Island 2 that is!  ^_^
