    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    This FAQ is for a game called Serious Sam. Serious Sam is a shooter 
    that takes a very interesting approach. Basically, you are out against 
    a ton of enemies and you have to kill them. There are also a few 
    puzzles and stuff like that so this FAQ is meant to help people who 
    can't get past one of these puzzles.

    ////    III. Controls                             \\\\\\
    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    The controls are fairly standard for a PC FPS. Basically, you move with 
    the keyboard and shoot with the mouse. Here is a little more detailed 
    explanation.
    
    Directional Pad on Keyboard - Moving in forward, left, right, and 
    backward.
    Mouse (moving) - Turning
    Thing in center of mouse (up and down) - Switch Weapons
    Left Mouse (Click) - Shoot
    Right Mouse (Click) - Bring up Menu (I believe)
    1 - Switch Weapon
    2 - Switch Weapon
    3 - Switch Weapon
    
    The controls are pretty easy to learn and you'll get used to them very 
    quickly.

    ///////////////////////////
    1. Gnaar, Female
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Mammal
    5 feet tall
    Low Endurance
    Low Hostility
    Bites and Punches
    Threat: Low
    
    This guy is first enemy in the game. Alone they are very easy. However, 
    when they come together, you should beware of them. Even then, you 
    should be able to beat them rather easily.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    2. Beheaded Firecracker
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Cyber Zombie
    6 feet tall
    Very Low Endurance
    Very Low Hostility
    Magic Missile Launcher
    Threat: None
    
    This one is very easy. No where in the game should you have even a 
    little bit of trouble with him. He is very weak and easily beatable.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    3. Beheaded Kamikaze
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Cyber-Zombie
    6 feet tall
    Very Low Endurance
    Extreme Hostility
    Hand Grenades
    Threat: High
    
    This guy will have two grenades in his hand. Keep shooting him before 
    he attacks with them to beat him. He is dangerous if you don't take him 
    out quickly. However, if you destroy him quickly, you'll be okay. 
    (Note: He will explode when you kill him)
    
    ///////////////////////////
    4. Kleer Skeleton
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Undead
    9 feet tall
    Low Endurance
    Medium Hostility
    Jumping attacks
    Threat: Medium
    
    These guy are easy when you first meet them. They don't get much 
    harder, however, there are pints in the game where 20 or so come at 
    you. It takes them a while to attack, so take them out before they get 
    the chance to harm you in any way.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    5. Sirian Werebull
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Mammal
    9 feet big
    Low Endurance
    Medium Hostility
    Horns
    Threat: Medium
    
    These guys are just annoying. They charge at you. You have to shoot 
    them and them quickly get out of the way. They aren't that hard, but 
    will take a few shots to kill. (If you use the Rocket Launcher you'll 
    get him in one. By that time, you'll never have less than six coming at 
    you.)
    
    ///////////////////////////
    6. Archnoid, Adult
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Arthropod
    20-25 feet big
    High Endurance
    Extreme Hostility
    Chain Gun, Tail String
    Threat: High
    
    The first time you encounter this guy he is very easy because all you 
    have to do is shoot him from a distance. He gets harder, but he's 
    nothing you can't take care of rather easily.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    7. Archnoid, Juvenile
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Arthropod
    10 feet big
    Medium Endurance
    Extreme Hostility
    Chain Gun, Tail String
    Threat: High
    
    This guys the same as the Adult Archnoid except he is a little easier 
    to kill and a lot smaller.
    
    ///////////////////////////

    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Mammal
    5 feet Standing
    Low Endurance
    Medium Hostility
    Magic Projectiles, Claws
    Threat: Low
    
    This guy is VERY annoying. They come at you from above in great 
    numbers. To defeat them, you should use any regular gun and shoot up. 
    They are very annoying, but not THAT hard.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    9. Beheaded Rocketeer
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Cyber-Zombie
    6 ft big
    Very Low Endurance
    Very Low Hostility
    Magic Missile Launcher
    Threat: None
    
    He is very similar to the Beheaded Firecracker. Very weak and a cinch 
    to beat.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    10. Zumb'ul from Planet Ras-ad-Nyk
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Mammal
    10 feet big
    Medium Endurance
    Medium Hostility
    Twin Hand Plasma Launcher
    Threat: Medium
    
    This guy is not that hard. He won't hurt you a lot. He does have some 
    long-range weapons. Just move around and shoot. You will beat him 
    easily.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    11. Beheaded Bomber
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Cyber-Zombie
    6 ft big
    Low Endurance
    Very Low Hostility
    Hand Grenades
    Threat: None
    
    Except for the Beheaded Kamikaze, this guy is the hardest "Beheaded 
    Enemy." That's not saying much. He is still very easy to beat and you 
    won't have any problems.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    12. Cucurbito the Pumpkin
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Vegetarian
    6 ft big
    Low Endurance
    Medium Hostility
    Chainsaw
    Threat: Medium
    
    This guy has a pumpkin head! Anyway, as far as killing him goes he 
    pretty easy. He doesn't appear THAT much, but is pretty easy when he 
    does.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    13. Lava Golem
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Inorganic
    10 to 100 ft big
    Medium to Extreme Endurance
    High Hostility
    Fireballs
    Threat: Low to Extreme
    
    At the beginning, this guy is easy. He gets harder and eventually is 
    pretty difficult. A good way to beat him is to keep away. Then, shoot 
    the fireballs. When they are gone shoot him before he shoots any more 
    fireballs.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    14. Aludran Reptiloid, Common
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Cold-Blooded Reptile
    15 ft big
    Medium Endurance
    High Hostility
    Magic Homing Missiles
    Threat: Medium
    
    This guy is pretty hard. Like most enemy's try to beat him quickly and 
    avoid his Missiles.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    15. Reeban Electro-Fish
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    Aquatic Vertabrate
    11 ft Length
    Low Endurance
    High Hostility
    Electric Discharge
    Threat: Medium
    
    These fish get out of the water and attack you. Kind of weird, but hard 
    by any means. Shoot them and they will die easily.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    16. Bio-Mechanoid, Major
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    30 ft big
    High Endurance
    High Hostility
    Rocket Launcher
    Threat: High
    
    This guy is very dangerous. Especially if you don't defeat him quickly. 
    Destroy as fast as possible to prevent being hurt too badly by him. If 
    there are many enemies together, I recommend killing this guy first.
    
    ///////////////////////////
    16. Bio-Mechanoid, Minor
    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    
    15 ft big
    Medium Endurance
    High Hostility
    Pulse Lasers
    Threat: Medium
    
    This guy is just like Major except he is much easier to beat and not as 
    dangerous.

    --------------------------------------------------------
    
    Level 1
    -------
    
    This level is pretty easy, but hey, it's Level 1. Start out by getting 
    out of the lake. If you want, you can pick up the chainsaw (I've never 
    used mine, but you should still have it, just in case.) Equip your 
    pistil and head through the forest. You'll get to a clearing were a 
    swarm of enemies will attack you. Easily destroy them with your gun and 
    move on. Pick up the gun here, as it will help you soon to come. Go 
    forward to continue on the path, destroying the many enemies that come 
    your way. When you get to the end of the path, walk through the door.
    
    Here, you will be in an area that separates where you just were and a 
    completely different area. This little spot will have a rifle right in 
    the middle. Pick it up and aim it at the big building. Shoot and easily 
    kill the big enemy. Soon about ten "Scythian Witch - Harpy's" will come 
    and attack you. Kill them with you rifle or with another weapon-your 
    choice. Then, go through the door to the next area. This area will have 
    a bunch of enemies. A lot of them will charge at you. You can pick up 
    the Serious Speed if you want to go faster. When you have killed all 
    the enemies, enter the temple.
    
    This temple is pretty straight forward. All you have to do is walk 
    right through it. Make sure to pick up the flamethrower as it is very 
    useful. When you get to an area with a bunch of things going up and 
    down, BE SURE TO QUICK-SAVE. You will probably die a few times here. It 
    is pretty difficult and your timing has to be pretty good. However, it 
    is nothing you shouldn't be able to do. At the end, get ready to enter 
    another room.
    
    The roof of this room keeps going up and down (two hits will kill 
    unless you wait forever to heal.) Go to the left and press A on the 
    symbol to push it in. Do the same on the other side to open the door. 
    Walk through the door. You should get outside. Follow the straight-
    forward path to quickly get to the end. Congratulations! You beat Level 
    1!
