=============================Section I.  Intro

 WARNING: This walkthrough contains some spoilers
 NOTE:  If this whole thing looks oddly formatted, try maximizing it in your 
        browser or notepad

 Crystalis was released by SNK for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 
 1990.  The game is of the adventure/RPG  genre, and has a similar gameplay 
 to Zelda 1.  Crystalis was re-released for Game Boy Color in June, 2000, and 
 included an updated story, new music, and a few other new gameplay elements.
 This Walkthrough is based solely on the NES  version, but could easily be 
 applied to the GBC version as well.  I attempted to make this walkthrough as 
 simple as possible, and you will probably notice its brevity in relation to 
 other FAQs and walkthroughs.  In each section I created an outline that tells 
 you all encessary steps, the more detailed bullets contain how to achieve these
 objectives.  The maps, however, provide basically all necessary instruction 
 for the game, as dungeon exploring is the primary objective of the game.  
 Furthermore, I want to provide as much freedom to the gamer in regards to 
 purchasing, leveling up, etc., although leveling up is often necessary to
 defeat certain bosses and enemies.

 My reason for making this FAQ/Walkthrough/etc.: I have had a very large and 
 fairly popular Crystalis web site for almost 5 years now, and I had 
 previously posted others' FAQs because of convenience and practical reasons, 
 but I recently decided, although the present FAQs are more than adequate, to 
 write a very simple walkthrough: one that  would concisely contain all 
 necessary info and a good, but not too wordy, walkthrough.  Also I felt sorta 
 lazy not making my own seeing as many of my web site visitors view me as an 
 authority on the subject.  Furthermore, this  is my first Gamefaq's faq; I 
 did write a Faxanadu faq as well but that was for an RPGClassics shrine and 
 was not easily transferable to text.  Although much of the information is 
 probably repeated in other FAQ's, I researched it all myself unless noted 
 otherwise (biggest exception minimum levels for bosses and such, which I 
 obtained from a very cool Nintendo Power two-issue walkthrough on 
 Crystalis... I still remember one of the parts was the issue with Ken
 Griffey Jr. on the cover)).

=============================Section II.  Walkthrough

====================Area 1: Wind Valley

            Outline:  I.  Get Sword of Wind and $100 in town, buy Alarm Flute
                     II.  Wake windmill guard and ge Windmill Key
                    III.  Start Windmill, complete Sealed Cave

        -After awakening from the cave, go to the house in the NE area of 
         town of receive $100
        -Go to the elder in the NW building to receive the Sword of Wind 
         and some info
        -Go to the item shop and purchase the Alarm Flute for $50, or if you 
         prefer, buy some Herbs and Antidote or the Carapace Shield or Tanned 
         Hide, and then fight enemies to buy the Alarm Flute later; regardless, 
         the Alarm Flute is necessary
        -MAKE SURE ALL WEAPONS/ARMOR ARE EQUIPPED
        -Visit Zebu, a wise man, in the Western cave for some information, after
	 you talk to him, the Windmill guard will appear as discussed next
        -Go to the cave in the Northeast and use the Alarm Flute on 
         the sleeping guy
        -Use the Windmill Key on the keyhole in the windmill, thereby opening up
         the Sealed Cave
        -Enter the Sealed Cave, and receive Refresh Magic from Zebu
	-Note: you must be at level 2 to kill the monsters in here
        -Using the Map, get all the treasures, especially the Ball of Wind, 
         which is necessary to break the Rock Walls and progress 
         through the cave
        -The Vampire stands in the way of the cave exit, so in order to 
         defeat him, I recommend simple jabs when he is on the screen, 
         and projectile shots when you can't get close to him.  He should die 
         fairly easily, leaving the Rabbit Boots; be sure to maintain HP
         with Refresh, or Medical Herbs if necessary, and try to avoid his 
         bats.  He leaves 10 exp.  You must be up to at least 
         level 3 (Nintendo Power #59)

        -A Note about Maps: corresponding stairs are indicated by the same 
         letter (or #), entrance is abbreviated "ent," the exit is also labeled.
         Treasure chests are abbreviated "Tr" with the item inside named 
         nearby.  The types of wall barriers are abbreviated as follows: 
         rock = "Rk," ice = "Ic," and iron = "Ir;"  Water Bridges are 
         abbreviated "IB."  Floating platforms have a PF and [].  |--| indicates
         stairs (not stairwells, just the ladder like stairs you sometimes see
         on mountains and in the tower).

        -Head southwest and enter the town of Brynmaer
        -Buy new equipment, rest up, etc. and be sure to talk to the man named 
         Akahana standing near the entrance of town
        -After hearing about Akahana's lost statue, head northeast, then go 
         south over the bridge and head west; search (walk around) the high 
         grass in the area that juts out into the river and you 
         should discover the Statue of Onyx
        -Bring the statue back to Akahana and receive the Gas Mask in return

====================Area 3: Mt. Sabre

            Outline:  I.  Enter Mt. Sabre SW
                     II.  Find Tornado Bracelet, see Tornel
                    III.  Go to Mt. Sabre N
                     IV.  Rescue Leaf people, defeat General Kelbesque

        -Make a pit stop at Brynmaer, then head southwest towards the Mt. Sabre,
         and notice the really quick change from nice grass to frost.  I'll 
         cleverly refer to this area as Mt. Sabre SW
        -Using the map, go into Cave 1 (and notice the sudden change of frost 
         to green stuff), talk to Zebu and return to Leaf
        -In Leaf, go into the shed and talk to the dog 
         (yes I thought the same..), then return to Mt. Sabre SW
        -Using the Rabbit Boots (make sure magic is unselected), hop
         up the small Ice Slide and enter Cave 3
        -Get Tornado Bracelet (it's usually better not to have Bracelet's 
         selected so you don't waste MP)
        -Go to Cave 2, get treasures, and talk to Tornel to get the
         spell Teleport
        -Map notes: Ic = Ice Wall, The long slopes with \\ are the Ice Slides, 
         numbers correspond to caves on the frozen outer part, letters for 
         the inner green parts

        -Head northwest of the Poisonous Swamp, then north, to enter Mt. Sabre N
        -Follow path for a while; heal up at Nadare's, talk to the dying man, 
         then head southwest
        -Listen to the soldiers talk, then kill them and enter the cave
        -The most direct path to the top, using both maps as guides, is 
         ent-A-1-2-B-C-D-6-7(get Prison Key)-F-8
        -Follow the MT. Sabre N map to obtain the Prison Key, then make your way
         up to fight General Kelbesque: Use the Wind Sword and hit him with 
         projectile shots while avoiding the stuff he scatters across the
         screen, you must be at least at Level 7 (NP).  You'll get the 
         Flame Bracelet and 100 exp. for killing him
        -Use the Prison Key and proceed through the gate and talk to the Leaf
        -Proceed southwest out of the cave to Portoa and receive the 
         spell of Paralysis from Tornel (or someone's voice.  Or maybe it's
         Zebu's voice, as he gives it to you in the Game Boy rerelease)

====================Area 4: Capital of Water

            Outline:  I.  Go to Portoa
                     II.  Waterfall Cave (Sword of Water)
                    III.  South Lake (Ball of Water)
                     IV.  Amazones
                      V.  Kirisa Plant Cave
                     VI.  Fog Lamp Cave
                    VII.  Portoa/Sea

        -In Portoa, buy new items/armor if you wish then head to the large 
         castle in the northwest part of town
        -Speak to the Queen, then exit the castle and walk right back in,
         but DO NOT step forward, step left and then use Paralysis on the guard 
         the Queen's room.  Proceed into the Queen's room and enter the door in 
         the northeast part of the room; you can't go anywhere in here so just 
         leave the room entirely and head to the fortune-teller, in the 
         northeast part of town.  Talk to the fortune-teller (who'll direct 
         you back to the castle) then return to speak to the Queen.  
         She'll tell you about the Waterfall Cave and give you the Flute of Lime
        -Leave Portoa and head northeast to the Waterfall Cave (map), cleverly 
         placed behind the waterfall
        -In the Waterfall Cave, use the Queens's Flute of Lime to cure the two 
         stoned people.  It's not mandatory, but you should definitely 
         un-petrify Akahana, with the Flute of Lime from the treasure chest, 
         to get the Shield Ring; you should also equip that immediately 
         unless you like hopping with Rabbit Boots
        -The primary purpose of the cave is to obtain the Sword of Water

                        Note: Mimics are the treasure chests that attack
                              and follow you; don't touch them

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        -After killing Sabera, return to the Zombie Town and talk to people
        -Return to where Clark was and talk to him; he will give you
         the Eye Glasses
        -Teleport to Leaf and buy an Alarm Flute (cheaper than at Joel); 
         teleport back to Joel
        -Enter shed and use Eye Glasses
        -Go to Lighthouse, wake up Kensu and receive Glowing Lamp
        -Leave Joel, head all the way west, then north, and go on the shore 
         above the octopus
        -Use Glowing Lamp on the Altar to make Gold Statue
        -Use Gold Statue on Altar to remove whirlpools
        -Listen to cool sound effect, then head north through the pass and 
         receive Barrier
        
====================Area 6: A Port Town
        
            Outline:  I. Enter Swan and Obtain Change Magic
                     II. Return to Amazones for the Bow of Moon
                    III. Find Way Through Town Gate
                    
        -Head east, then north; go on shore to Swan
        -Go into shed and talk to Stom
        -Go into Tavern and use Paralysis on all the soldiers; talk to the
         standing one
        -Go into building on east side, use Paralysis on the girl in the bottom 
         left, talk to her (Kensu) and then use the Love Pendant; 
         get Change Magic
        -Now for a small sidetrack... Teleport to Amazones and become a woman.
         Talk to the Amazonians who have become much friendlier; they'll tell
         you how Aryllis, their queen, wants the Kirisa Plant to make some
         perfume.  O wait... you already have the Kirisa Plant.  Sweet.  Go into
         Aryllis' house and give her the Kirisa Plant.  You'll get the Bow of
         Moon which you'll need later
        -Now to head into the Draygonian Empire... Using Change magic (Wonder
         Twin Powers also suffice) take the shape of a Draygonian soldier and 
         talk to the soldiers in the west part of Swan, they'll let you 
         through the gate
        -Head a bit west and enter the big castle building, the fortress town of
         Goa

====================Area 7: Mt. Hydra

            Outline:  I. Go to Shyron in Mt. Hydra
                     II. Receive Key to Styx from Zebu
                    III. Get Sword of Thunder from Cave of Styx
                     IV. Return to Goa
                      V. Defeat Mado in Shyron and get Ball of Thunder
          
        -Go directly west of Goa to the entrance of Mt. Hydra
        -Go north then west, across an ice bridge, and through a small cave to
         the outside of Shyron.  Change into Stom and the guards will let you
         through
        -In Shyron you may want to make use of the good deals on Magic Rings and
         armor (you will not always be able to buy goods in Shyron).  Then head
         to the north part of town of talk to Zebu.  He will give you the 
         Key to Styx (or Stxy as the typo will tell you) and tell you to find
         the Sword of Thunder there
        -Make your way to the Cave of Styx, using the Key to Styx to open the
         gate (see the second map for how to get to Styx from Shyron)
        -Use Barrier magic to deflect the stuff coming from the statues as you
         first walk in
        -Until you learn Flight Magic, there is no need to go to the right, so
         head left.  An easy way to defeat the Wizards on the right and left is
         to slowly walk into the room they are in.  See if your shot will make
         the hit noise when it goes through them, if it doesn't inch up until it
         does; you can reach a place where you can hit the Wizard with Level 1/2
         shots before he starts shooting stuff at you
        -The rest of the cave is pretty self explanatory.  I prefer hopping
         (with Rabbit Boots) through the spikes all the way rather than waiting
         for the platform.  As soon as you obtain the Sword of Thunder you'll be
         teleported back to Shyron.  Watch out for the butterflies and eyeballs
         in that room, they can paralyze and petrify you respectively
        -After speaking to Azteca and three of the wise men, return to Goa.
         You'll notice the shops are no longer guarded by Draygonian soldiers so
         you can check them out.  Talk to Kensu, disguised as a soldier, in the
         north part of town right next to the fortress entrance.  Then enter the
         fortress, use Barrier to deflect the statues, and as you approach the
         big wall you'll receive a message saying that Shyron is under attack
        -Heal up at the Inn if you haven't yet done so and make your way to
         Shyron, there isn't a huge need to Teleport beacause it's not a
         dangerous walk there
        -You'll notice everyone in Shyron has been murdered and the wise men
         have been taken away.  Be sure to talk to Akahana, who will mention
         something he left with a friend in Goa, and Stom
        -In the hall at the north end of town you will fight Mado.  Using the
         Sword of Water he should take about 12-15 level 2 hits.  Mado has
         pretty much the same battle techniques throughout the fight, so be
         patient and concentrate more on avoiding his cannonball and ninja stars
         than on attacking.  It's best to attack him from afar.  You must bat
         level ??????? to beat him.  Have a charged level 2 shot ready when you
         enter the hall and let go of the attack button when he starts talking.
         You should get a quick free shot of him.  He will give you 1008 exp.
         and the Ball of Thunder when you defeat him
        -Now it's time to return to Goa and enter the fortress

====================Area 8: A Fortress City

            Outline:  I. Enter Goa Fortress
                     II. Defeat Kelbesque, Rescue Zebu
                    III. Defeat Sabera, Rescue Tornel
                     IV. Defeat Mado, Rescue Asina
                      V. Defeat Karmine, Rescue Kensu, Get Flight
                     VI. Leave to Death Desert Oasis
         
        -Head to the north part of town as before and enter the fortress
        -After going through the statues you will be able to destroy the iron
         wall with a level 2 Thunder shot
        -In the map below I didn't take pains to map every single possible path;
         there is only one path worth taking, that which goes to General
         Kelbesque.  Basically you want to head all the way NW, take the stairs
         on your right and follow the upper path east, and eventually go south
         when the path forks.  Follow the path of $$ in the map below
        -As before, General Kelbesque is only susceptible to the Sword of Wind. 
         You must be at least level 13 before killing him; he takes about 10
         level 2 Wind shots.  His attacking methods are different than in your
         first encounter with him.  The key is stay as far away as possible, the
         General moves quite quickly.  If you keep a safe distance, you should
         be able to fire off level 1/2 shots fairly easily as he only attacks in
         a 90 degree range.  You'll get 2032 exp. and an Opel Statue for
         defeating him
        -After defeating Kelbesque head up and you'll find Zebu who will restore
         your HP/MP and tell you to rescue the rest of the wise men

        -After meeting with Zebu, head north
        -There are a few treasures in this cave area, but nothing too
         spectacular.  To get to Sabera (map), head south, then east, then
         north, then east, then northwest; it's less complicated then it looks. 
         Avoid the flying bugs at all costs unless you have protection from
         Paralysis; they are quite a nuisance as you will need many level 2
         Water attacks to build bridges
        -When fighting Sabera use the Sword of Fire.  This battle is pretty
         similar to the previous one with Kelbesque, and this time you can get a
         free shot right from the start.  You need to be at level 13 to defeat
         her; she takes 12-15 level 2 Fire attacks to kill and she will leave
         you a Fruit of Repun and 2032 exp. for the fight.  As in the last
         fight, don't hesitate to use Refresh as often as possible; Tornel will
         heal you up right after the battle

        -There are many great treasures in the Mado area of Goa.  Make sure to
         pick up the Magic Rings and Opel Statue.  If you're looking to build
         experience, the passage you can reach from the NW and SW has experience
         rich and relatively easy tarantulas
        -Use Rabbit Boots to hop through the spikes
        -When heading towards Mado, the passage with the Shadows can be a pain
         if they knock you off the platforms with their spells.  If you can't
         outrun them, I recommend using a level 3 Fire attack to expose them;
         the Fire level 3 attack often kills them outright, but if it just
         exposes them, you can stab them to finish them off
        -Mado is very difficult.  Make sure you switch Rabbit Boots to the
         Shield Ring or Iron Necklace before the fight, you'll need it.  You
         must be at level 14 and use the Sword of Water to defeat him.  Mado
         moves crazy fast when in his cannonball form.  It's hard to formulate a
         strategy because he moves all over the place, but I try to stick all
         the way against the right wall, and when I see him nearing the wall I
         go as far away along the wall as possible.  Then it's just a matter of
         waiting till he stops to get a decent level 2 shot off at him.  If he
         stops near you, you may be able to get a few jabs at him, these can be
         very helpful.  You can also get a freebie shot after the dialogue.  As
         before, use up your magic as Asina will heal you afterwards.  Mado
         leaves 2032 exp. and a Sacred Shield after the battle.

        -Now only Karmine remains.  Karmine's area can be a bit confusing
         without the aid of a map.  My recommended path is to go A-C-Talk to
         Kensu-H(take treasure)-I-Kill Karmine-Return to Kensu-Leave through
         back
        -The monsters in this area can be a pain... status ailments abound...
         but the path outlined above avoids some of the badder areas
        -Use Rabbit Boots to get through the spikes, but make sure to equip Iron
         Necklace or Shield Ring before fighing Karmine
        -Karmine is a bit easier than Mado, but avoid his blue ring of fire at
         all costs; that turns you into a little monster like Kensu, and only
         Fruit of Repun can cure that state.  This battle is made much easier by
         the fact that you use the Sword of Thunder, it's not hard to hit a boss
         with a level 2 Sword of Thunder attack.  Get the freebie shot at the
         start of the fight; he takes about 12-15 level 2 shots to kill.
         There's no real strategy here, just run around a bunch and get off
         shots while you can.  It's best to keep some distance, as it can be
         hard to tell when he's going to shoot out his curse ring.  He leaves
         2032 exp. and the Ivory Statue when you defeat him.  
        -Go just north into the corridor and get the Storm Bracelet
        -Now return to Kensu the way you came and use the Ivory Statue on him.
         Don't ask me why Fruit of Repun won't work on him like it does on
         everyone else.  I don't know.  He gives you Flight magic for saving him
         and tells you that Mesis and Draygon have gone to the Pyramid.  Follow
         the back door out of Goa as he recommends
        -After flying over or jumping through the purple stuff (right out of the
         Sunny Delight commercial) pick up the Fruit of Power and fly over the 
         stream.  you are now officially in Death Desert territory

====================Area 9: Death Desert

            Outline:  I. Get Leather Boots, Battle Armor, & Power Ring 
                         in Oasis Cave
                     II. Get Warrior Ring in Town of Goa
                    III. Get Bow of Truth on Mt. Hydra
                     IV. Get Psycho Shield in Cave of Styx
            
          -You are in the Desert Oasis Cave, if you head to the stairs
           directly south, you'll find yourself in Death Desert, directly south
           of Goa.  Instead go the stairs SE of the stream, to enter the heart
           of the cave
          -The Oasis Cave is fairly confusing so I outlined the path you should
           take on the map.  Having Flight to easily cross over streams comes in
           handy.  There are 3 treasures you should definitely pick up, the
           Fruit of Power is merely optional
          -Basically go like this: head south of 'A' and fly over the stream to
           pick up the Fruit of Power; fly back over and head north past 'A',
           turn left and follow the path to get the Leather Boots; head back
           south down the stream, then cross over to the east when you reach the
           ice bridge; go slightly south and head east through the short
           corridor; head all the way north along the stream, turning right as
           it does; fly over the next streams heading east then head up a bit to
           pick up the Battle Armor; now head south, flying over two streams
           then walk around clockwise to get to 'B'; then simply go up, destroy
           the iron wall and get the Power Ring; simply leave the cave through
           the stairs leading to the desert when you're done
          -The only monsters in this cave are annoying flying bugs who have a
           tendency to paralyze you.  It shouldn't be too big a deal, however,
           as Kensu just healed you up.  Beware of the iron wall near the Power
           Ring, it shoots fire at you.  The Leather Boots protect you from lava
           and swamps and such in addition to being much more stylish than the
           Rabbit Boots.  Now you don't have to hop to ge through that stuff.
           The Battle Armor has a decent rating but more importantly protects
           you from poison.  The Power Ring is great when facing bosses
          -I know this map looks pretty sucky, it was quite hard to make (due to
           width constraints) but the $ path should help, that's all you really
           need to know about the Oasis Cave

          A small sidetrack:  
          -Now it's time to stock up on a few important items with the
           help of Flight
          -Before having your Flight fun, return to Goa (Teleport or head north
           out of the desert, then north through the field) and talk to the
           townsfolk, who are pretty happy you kicked everyone out of the
           Fortress.  Remember Akahana talking about something he left with a
           friend in town?  Well it doesn't really matter if you do or not, but
           in any case head into the NE building of town and use Change to take
           the form of Akahana.  Talk to the lady and she will give you the
           Warrior Ring, a pretty sweet item
          -Now return to Mt. Hydra
          -Referencing the Mt. Hydra map above, follow the path 2-4-6-A-D-E-F-8
           to get the Bow of Sun
          -Now go to the Cave of Styx, head right past the gargoyles, kill the
           Wizard, fly across the stream, and pick up the treasure chest in a
           little path off to the left (the other 2 are Mimics).  You'll get the
           Psycho Shield.  Super Sweet.  The Psycho Shield has the best
           attributes of the Sacred Shield and Mirrored Shield (plus great
           defense).  Equip it.  And don't even think about unequipping it.
           
          Back to the regular flow of things:
          -Return to Death Desert, equip your Leather Boots and head SE until
           you come upon a cave blocked by two lava whirpools.  Fly over 
           the whirpools and into the cave.  Go through the cave and you'll
           enter a yellow field with a bunch of rabbits
          -Talk to the rabbits until you come across Deo, a rabbit friend of
           Stom's who will wonder about Stom's whereabouts.  Change into Stom
           and Deo, angered by Stom's death, will give you Deo's Pendant to help
           avenge Stom
          -Now head south into the town of Sahara and talk to the elder there
          -Head east through the small cave and you will arrive in a small
           desert area.  Go slightly east and fly over the lava pools into the
           Pyramid
          -The Pyramid may appear intimidating, but it is nice and symmetrical. 
           There is really only one place to go, 'I', aside from the Magic Ring
          -Draygon is not a very difficult boss.  You must be at level 15 and
           you must have the Power Ring equipped in order to hurt him.  Any
           sword works, but the Sword of Thunder is best.  Before the battle
           heal up by raising your MP with Deo's Pendant.  Draygon's attack
           pattern is very predictable.  He only takes about 8-12 level 2
           Thunder attacks.  Use Refresh as needed and you will not have too
           many problems.  He leaves 2032 exp. and the Psycho Armor when you
           defeat him.  As with the Psycho Shield, equip the Psycho Armor as
           soon as you get it don't think of unequipping it.  In addition to
           great defense, it has the same effect as Deo's Pendant except for HP
          -As soon as you defeat Emperor Draygon you will be teleported to the
           beginning of the Pyramid face to face with Azteca.  Azteca tells you
           that you must rescue Mesia through the back entrance to the Pyramid
           and gives you the Bow of Truth to use on the Emperor

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         
         -Now head NE of the pyramid to find a small stairway in the desert
          blocked by two lava pools; fly over to enter the back entrance of the
          Pyramid
         -There's no need to heal up anywhere; use Deo's Pendant and the Psycho
          Armor to restore your HP and MP
         -At this point I recommend you have your tool item line filled only
          with Magic Rings, Fruit of Repuns, and Opel Statues.  There is no need
          for any other item past this point
         -Here's where the Bows of Sun and Moon will finally become handy.  Walk
          around the path until you see two dog-like statues who threaten you.
          Simply use the two Bows (there's no need to aim them) and the path
          will be opened to you
           
           Note: If you DON'T have either of the Bows:
                 -The Bow of Sun can be found on Mt. Hydra (Area 7, see map)
                 -The Bow of Moon can be obtained by giving the Amazones
                  Chief the Kirisa Plant.  See Area 4 Kirisa Plant Cave Map for
                  info on the Kirisa Plant, Area 6 for exchanging for the Bow.
                  
         -A major word of caution: the Warlock guys running around everywhere
          cast Curse on you with their fire rings.  Curse is a pain.  Avoid it
          all costs
         -If you do become cursed, going into a new room (via pit or stairwell)
          will cure you (try to save Fruit of Repuns for the boss fight) 
         -This place is pretty tricky.  Before the next boss fight you will be
          able to heal up with the Deo's Pendant/Psycho Armor combo, so keep
          that in mind.  You can only kill the Warlock characters with the Sword
          of Wind, but that takes awhile so I generally just run away
         -You need to be at level 16 to fight Draygon, so if you haven't reached
          it already, you can get 1920 exp. from each Warlock or Orange Blob
          (located in the spikes near stair D) you kill
         -The only treasure here is an Opel Statue which is quite optional to
          get.  Otherwise head straight up to 'C' then around to 'F' to reach
          Draygonia
         -I advise using Flight to cros the pits rather than the platforms; it's
          much safer
         -Fighting Draygon the second time is not too tough.  When you first see
          him, he will look the saem as before.  Immediately use the Bow of
          Truth to reveal his true form.  For this fight I recommend the Storm
          Bracelet and the Power Ring.  Draygon has many means of attack:
          Sabera-esque balls, lasers, fire, his big bulky body, but the only one
          to really avoid is his occasional curse-ring.  Draygon can only be
          hurt when the red sphere on his chest is opened.  This occurs while he
          is using his lasers.  Have a level 3 attack stored up and release it
          as soon as it opens up.  The level 3 Sword of Thunder attack does not
          need to be aimed (and it has unlimited range, unlike Draygon's 
          attacks); you only need 3 or 4 of these to kill Draygon.  If you're
          quick you can get two of these shots off during one phase of
          his having his chest open.  You must be at level 16 to kill Draygon
         -After defeating Draygon Azteca and the wise men will appear and you
          will be teleported to the tower.  You're HP and MP will also be fully
          restored
         
                  Good job!  This is the way it was supposed to be...
                  I must explain...  I didn't want evil in my mind, 
                  and I tried to push all corrupting thoughts away.
                  But Draygon began to read my negative ideas and became
                  absorbed by them.  The fact that you & Mesia are awake
                  means the tower's cycle has begun.  There's so little time.
           
                  Kensu... I'm sorry... I feel Draygons evil... was 
                  my fault.  He saw the temptation of using his power
                  for self glory and evil, but I could do nothing...
                  Now we must be apart...  I'm... sorry...

====================Area 10: Tower in the Sky

             Outline:  I.  Kill a Whole Lot of Monsters
                      II.  Get Crystalis
                     III.  Destroy DYNA
          
          -Not much farther to go... Your mission is to find Mesia
          -You advance floors of the tower by defeating all of the robot enemies
           on each floor (the walking brown ones and the walking blue ones, who
           appear after you kill the brown ones).  A stairwell will appear when
           all the requisite enemies have been killed (the screen will also
           blink)
          -I recommend using the Warrior Ring and Sword of Thunder and just
           unleashing on everyone.  Try to stay away from the Sensor thing that
           goes along the track and shoots at you; you can only kill it when
           it's firing at you.  Lure the robots away from it.  The only real
           advice is to avoid getting trapped at either end of the corridor on
           each floor
          -After advancing past the first floor...
                
                Hero's Name!  Mesia!  These messages are for you.
                You both were part of a team of scientists who 
                created this tower.  As the most critical link, 
                you were preserved to witness our future race;
                to judge if there's hope for humanity.
                When the tower began operating, your life systems
                were engaged and you both were awakened.
                
          -After advancing past the second floor...
          
                Did you find Azteca?  He was an android created
                by us, and programmed to lead the people in a 
                positive direction.  We can only hope he will 
                succeed.  We used all our resources to create him.
                If he fails then it will be up to you to decide
                their fate.
         
          -On the 4th floor you will find Mesia; the Swords of Wind, Fire,
           Water, and Thunder will be turned into Crystalis
          -Mesia will instruct you to destroy DYNA the sentinal computer of the
           Floating Tower:
                 You must destroy DYNA the central computer.
                 If you succeed, stick Crystalis into it's 
                 main raector!
          -While advancing to DYNA...
          
                 Hero's Name!  Mesia!  By the time this is 
                 activated, we will no longer be alive.
                 We hope we have made the right decisions,
                 and that all people will realize their
                 mistakes before it's too late.  Hero's
                 Name!  Mesia!  As old friends, we wish 
                 your safety.  Good luck!
                 
          -Head up the long stairwell to reach DYNA.  Heal with Psycho
           Armor/Deo's Pendant
          -DYNA is not too hard.  This is the last battle so don't hesitate to
           use every last item and MP you've got.  I recommend using the 
           Warrior Ring.  DYNA can be harmed when it opens up its blue eye, 
           just left of center.  Nail it with 6-8 Warrior Ring shots from 
           Crystalis to destroy DYNA.  My only real recommendation is to stay
           towards the middle of the screen; you can get sort of trapped if 
           you go off to either side

       Congrats... you've saved the world.  Very sweet.
       

=============================Section III.  Tips
        
        -YOU MUST EQUIP WEAPONS AND ARMOR IN ORDER FOR THEM TO BE EFFECTIVE
        -In towns, talk to everyone
        -Don't have any magic selected other than Refresh, otherwise you might 
         easily waste some MP by an accidental button tap;
         same goes with tool items
        -When approaching bosses, have a level 2 shot ready and walk into where
         they are directed straight at them; you can release the attack button
         when they start talking to you, and as soon as the dialogue ends, you
         should get a quick free shot on them
        -Recover magic is costly, therefore always try to avoid status ailments;
         for instance if a monster poisons you on contact it's wise to lay back 
         and kill him with projectile attacks rather than stabbing him
        -The best armor or shield isn't necessarily the one with the highest 
         defense; status protection often comes in handy
        -Sell old and worthless armor/shields at Pawn Shops
        -Immediate armor/shield purchase at every new town isn't always wise as 
         there may be a town with better or cheaper products coming up
        -Watch out when walking under bridges, sometimes 
         there are monsters you can't see
        -Always have at least 20MP available to use Teleport for emergency use
        -Having trouble in a certain area or against a certain boss?  Level up

=============================Section XI.  Monsters

        -All "bosses," so to speak, are in caps.
        -In the status section, (T) means you become afflicted by touching 
        the monster, while (P) means they shoot something out at you.
        (Pow) means it comes from the monster's powder, as in butterflies.
        -In some instances a monster may appear to be immune to a weapon
        but is in fact not; this is the result of an inadequate Attack 
        attribute.  One example I noticed is that Mimics require a pretty
        high Attack power in order to hurt them with the Sword of Fire.
	I thought about trying to find the necessary attack level for the
	monsters, but that would be rediculously tedious; if you can't
	hurt with the right swords, increase your level.
        
        Note about STATUS EFFECTS...
        -Poison is always caused by contact with certain monsters, it result in
         gradual degradation of HP.  It can be cured by an Antidote or Recover.
        -Paralysis prevents you from charging your sword.  It is caused by
         monsters' powder or a projectile that looks like your own Paralysis
         spell.  It can be cured by the Lysis Plant or Recover.
        -Petrify turns you to stone for a brief amount if time.  It is caused
         by a ball-like projectile from certain enemies.  Interestingly, if you
         get petrified with your word in the out position and a monster walks
         into it, they are harmed.  Petrify can be cured by Fruit of the Lime
         (Tree) or Recover, or simply by waiting a bit.
        -Curse turns you into a little purple blob.  You can't attack or use
         spells while cursed.  Curse is caused by a projectile ring of small
         fires.  Curse can be cured by entering a new room or by Fruit of Repun.
        -MP Drain gradually eats away about 30MP.  It is caused by a sticky web
         like projectile from certain enemies.  You can curtail the damage by
         entering a new room as soon as possible.

=============================Section XIII.  Wild Warp Code/Cheap Apparel Glitch

                             Wild Warp Code
        There is one non-Game Genie style code for Crystalis...
        This was probably taken from the "Classified Information" section of an
        ancient issue of Nintendo Power.
        
        This is called the Wild Warp Code
        How: At any point in the game, press and hold A and B on Controller 1,
             then press A on Controller 2; this will warp you to somewhere else
             in the game; this warp can be repeated as often as desired.
        
        The warp proceeds sequentially; the first time you warp, you go to #1, 
        then #2, and so forth.  The Warp is quick way to get around if you know
        where you're going and can serve as a free Teleport.
             1. Town of Leaf
             2. Valley of Wind
             3. Sealed Cave (inside)
             4. Sealed Cave Exit, North of Brynmaer
             5. Poisonous Swamp
             6. Mt. Sabre West, South of Brynmaer
             7. Exit of Mt. Sabre North, North of Portoa
             8. Area where Rage lives, South of Portoa
             9. Leaving Portoa (on the boat)
            10. Entrance to the Cave behind Portoa
            11. Town of Swan
            12. Field Surrounding Goa
            13. Mt. Hydra
            14. Entrance of the Desert South of Goa
            15. Fortress of Goa
            16. Left of the Pyramid
           
           Warning: If you use this code in the Tower, you can't get back in
           again (a.k.a. you can't finish the game)
           
           Warning #2: This was submitted by a reader of this walkthrough, 
           Kris; basically the idea is that if you warp past the Swan gate 
           too early on, you can mess stuff up:

           "This trick is cool to use, but if you use it too early in the game
           you can potentially cause a fatal glitch in the game. About half-way
           through the game when you get to the town of Swan there are two 
           Draygonian soldiers that guard a red gate directly to the west of 
           the city. I'm sure you know where I mean (you use Change magic to
           change into a Draygonian soldier, they then open the gate, and all
           is well).
              The problem is that if you warp to the spot where the gate is
           before you actually get the guards to open it, the guards never
           appear and there is no way to get the gate open. I believe that
           doing this prevents a trigger from going off & you can't progress
           past that point in the plot, effectively screwing up the game for
           that character. Note that this only occurs if you actually warp
           to that spot in the game BEFORE the guards open the gate for you.
           As long as you wait until after that point in the game to actually
           warp there, there is no problems (ie you can warp to the first
           few warp spots but just stop before you actually warp to 
           the gate)."


                              Cheap Apparel Glitch
           This very cool trick was sent to me by Frank Amoroso.  When buying
           items or armor, you can get a better deal on expensive items by
           quickly pushing A as you move from a cheaper item adjacent to the
           more expensive item you wish to buy.  You'll receive the more
           expensive item, but pay the price of the cheaper item.

           Some great uses include:
           Platinum Armor in Portoa for $600
           Sacred Shield in Amazones for $9000
           Ceramic Suit and Battle Shield for $2500 in Swan
           Magic Ring for $1000 in Sahara
