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

    *NOTE*
    
    My computer died on me a while back and the game doesn't run on my new computer
    at all, so I probably won't be getting the last card any time soon.

                                   (B) INTRODUCTION
    ###############################################################################
    
    Painkiller is a modern first-person shooter that many people have likened to
    the classic Doom series of games [which are finally being updated later this
    year with Doom 3].
    
    The game has you fighting hordes of enemies with a pile of weapons and not a
    whole lot of thinking.  It's mainly fast-paced, twitchy action with few puzzle
    elements.
    
    Your character can collect the souls of his defeated foes, and once he collects
    a certain amount of them he temporarily morphs into a demon.  During this time
    all enemies burn with bright flames and become incredibly easy to see.  This
    allows you to quickly hunt them down and dispatch them with your deadly shots,
    until the effect wears off and you're back to your own weapons.
    
    The physics in the game are very cool to witness as well, because when you
    blast an enemy at close range with a shotgun he will go FLYING.  If you're
    really close to him when you do it, he'll become a disgusting pile of mush.
    
    The enemies aren't the only thing in the game with such physics though, many of
    the background objects react to each other, to you or enemies moving/attacking
    them and to explosions around them.  It's really something when you see your
    first chain reaction of background objects colliding/exploding into one
    another.
    
    As an interesting aside, DreamCatcher Games [one of the companies behind
    Painkiller] is based in Toronto, Ontario.  Which means they're locals!
    For me anyway ;)
    
    I hope you enjoy the game, because I sure do.

    Since system requirements are a big deal with a lot of people for this game,
    here they are from the game's readme file.

    If you find that the game is performing poorly on your system then try lowering
    the resolution or any of the graphics effects.  It may look a little plain but
    if it helps you play the game smoother it's worth it.

    ###############################################################################
                                      (E) WEAPONS
    ###############################################################################
    
    ===========
    Pain Killer
    ===========
    
    You begin the game with this staff and it has two functions.
    
    The primary function has the end opening up into a series of blades that spin
    around wildly.  You can then run at enemies to cut them good or you can
    right-click to launch the blades at your target.
    
    The secondary function launches a glowing orb forward that attaches to whatever
    it hits.  Hitting the button again returns the orb to your staff.
    
    
    =======
    Shotgun
    =======
    
    This weapon is most effective at closer distances, where it deals some good
    damage.
    
    Its secondary attack is the freezer, which basically slows the enemy down until
    they stop moving after they get hit with a shot.  You can then shoot them with
    anything to finish the job and shatter them into many pieces.
    
    
    ========
    Stakegun
    ========
    
    This gun fires sharp wooden stakes with incredible force [and yet there's not a
    vampire to be found], but it takes a little more thought to use than most
    weapons.  First of all the stakes are affected by gravity as they arc through
    the air, so you need to fire above an enemy if they're really far away from you
    to hit them successfully.  This weapon also takes time to reload between EACH
    SHOT, so it's not that great for taking out large groups of enemies quickly.
    
    The secondary function of the weapon is a grenade launcher, simply launch a
    shot and keep your distance before it explodes a moment later.
    
    
    ========
    Chaingun
    ========
    
    This gun's secondary function is a chaingun and it fires shots very quickly,
    and is great for picking off enemies from a distance or cutting through groups
    of enemies.
    
    The primary function of the gun is a rocket launcher, and this is also quite
    helpful for attacking distant targets, or taking out large groups by either
    firing into them or at their feet [even at a nearby wall].
    
    
    ==============
    Electro Driver
    ==============
    
    This gun fires ninja stars very quickly as it's primary function and is pretty
    helpful for attacking enemies from a distance.  The secondary function fires a
    stream of electricity that is more effective at closer distances.
    
    You can also use both functions at once [press both mouse buttons] to fire
    electrified ninja stars.  These kill enemies quickly and they also zap any
    other enemies that get close to them for a brief period.  Using this attack
    takes a lot of power though, so keep that in mind.
    
    
    ============
    Flamethrower
    ============
    
    The primary function of this weapon is a sub-machinegun and is very helpful for
    cutting through large groups of enemies.  It also works very well at sniping
    enemies from a distance.
    
    The secondary function is a flamethrower and lets you torch enemies at close
    range.  Enemies that are on fire will take damage every few seconds until they
    die, or until the flames go out.
    
    
    ========
    Bolt Gun
    ========
    
    The primary function of this weapon fires bolts at very high speeds.  It uses
    more ammo per shot than I would like, but it's still quite effective.  If you
    click the middle mouse button [or press Z] you can also zoom in with this
    weapon, which makes it VERY nice for sniping enemies.
    
    The secondary function is a group of bouncing explosives that get launched
    forward and is extremely effective when enemies bunch up in groups [especially
    in tight quarters].
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                       (F) ITEMS
    ###############################################################################
    
    =====
    Souls
    =====
    
    Souls come in either green or red.  The green ones are much more common and
    they refill one unit of health when collected.  The red ones are much more
    rare, but they give you 6 units of health when collected.  You also morph into
    a demon for a brief period of time once you've collected 66 souls.  If you are
    using tarot cards though you can lower that number, to make things easier.
    
    
    ======
    Health
    ======
    
    Health comes in two colours and looks very similar to souls.  The yellow health
    refills 25 units of health [up to a maximum of 100], while the red/green health
    refills 100 units [up to a maximum of 300?].
    
    
    ====
    Ammo
    ====
    
    The ammo for all the guns and each of their functions comes in many shapes and
    sizes, but you'll quickly learn to recognize them.  There is also a REALLY
    large ammo box that gives you ammo for all weapons/functions when picked up.
    
    
    ====
    Gold
    ====
    
    Gold comes out of just about any object that can be smashed, and it is used to
    place [equip] tarot cards.
    
    
    ==========
    Holy Items
    ==========
    
    These golden items give you 100 gold when you collect them, so they're well
    worth finding.
    
    
    ===========
    Skull Masks
    ===========
    
    These masks upgrade your weapons for a brief period, and they also add a red
    glow to your vision during this time.  Shotgun shots have no spread to them,
    your stakes fly perfectly straight and flaming ninja stars are a few of the
    upgrades.

                                        (G) TIPS
    ###############################################################################
    
    Be sure to download the latest patches [V1.6.4 as of this writing] for the game
    at the official website.
    http://www.painkillergame.com
    
    Check out the Painkiller Forums if you find yourself in a tight spot that I
    haven't covered yet, they're pretty active.
    
    http://www.dreamcatchergames.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=58
    
    
    Kalme's site here has videos on how to find all the secrets in the game.
    http://www.kalme.de/booh/
    
    
    The checkpoints in the Daydream and Insomnia difficulties fully restore your
    health when you reach them.
    
    
    USE THE ARROW at the top of the screen because it always points to either an
    enemy or the next checkpoint [it glows red for checkpoints], unless there
    aren't any of either in the area.
    
    Smash everything you see, because you never know what you'll find inside.
    
    Your ammo DOESN'T carry over for each stage so don't be afraid to save the
    heavy stuff for later.
    
    Holy items are worth 100 gold, so they're well worth finding.
    
    Gold disappears if left for too long much like souls, so collect it ASAP when
    you see it.
    
    Collecting black tarot cards is NOT necessary to complete the game, but by
    making the extra effort to collect them you can make the game easier.  They're
    especially helpful on the harder difficulties and if you want to see the TRUE
    ending to the game you'll want to collect all the cards.
    
    You morph into a demon at 66 souls unless you have a card that makes that
    number smaller, so try your best to morph into a demon when you have a lot of
    enemies to kill.  Souls also restore health [red ones restore more than normal]
    when collected, so they're well worth picking up.
    
    If an enemy takes many hits to kill you can always use a stronger weapon, BUT
    you could also use the freezer to freeze them.  Once frozen, a single shot from
    any weapon should shatter them.
    
    If you are having trouble beating a stage or getting a tarot card, you could
    try using the cheats.  This should be a last resort though, because it really
    kills the fun of the game.
    
    
    If you're trying to get the tarot cards, you'll find it much easier to get them
    on the easier difficulties.
    
    
    If you want to play the game on Trauma difficulty, then you need to get 9 of
    the 10 tarrot cards first.  Unfortunately the game has a glitch that forces you
    to collect all 10 cards before you can access the Trauma difficulty.  If you
    have the game patched to at least version 1.6.1, then this glitch is fixed.

    You will find the walkthrough [which is based off of the Insomnia difficulty
    for all but the Pentagon stage] for the entire game in the sections below.  You
    can only play the Pentagon stage on Nightmare difficulty or above.

    - Never get hurt
    - Gold: Weapon Modifier Card [100 gold to place]
    
    Secrets:    02
    
    
    After the intro you can pass your cursor of over the name of the level to see
    the best scores, otherwise click the red jewel to start the level.
    
    If you're trying to get the tarot card for this stage, you will find the Iron
    Will card very helpful as well as the Mercy card.  I used those two cards along
    with Double Time Bonus.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    [If you want to find the first secret area you should turn around and jump a
    pair of gaps.  Walk across a log next and head for the other end of this
    island, then cross a path of logs.  Go to the end of this island and cross the
    large log to your right as well as a few small ones.  Jump a few gaps and use a
    log on your left to reach the next island.  Walk to the end of this island and
    jump from the log to reach some armour and ammo in the first secret area!]
    
    (Now you can backtrack to the start and get on with the level.)
    
    
    Carefully cross the narrow beam without falling in the water, otherwise you'll
    take some damage.  Climb the stairs and kill a small group of headless enemies,
    then grab some ammo to the right of the doors.
    
    Ignore the teleporter for now and continue right until you reach a dead-end,
    then jump on the railing to your right and climb up the wiring [like a ladder]
    on the corner of the wall.  Get off at the next floor and look for some more
    wiring on a corner by the chests.  Climb up this wiring too and grab the ammo
    in the secret area, then work your way back down and use the teleporter.
    
    Climb the stairs as a ball bounces towards you, then kill an enemy at the top.
    Head right as you kill another enemy, then smash the pigs for some gold.
    Attack the enemy on the bed to wake him up, then kill him.  Grab all the ammo
    here and head for the first checkpoint nearby.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Watch as a ghost flies through the door ahead of you, then go through the same
    door.  Avoid the shots of the ghost and grab the ammo up the small staircase to
    your left.  Carefully follow the ghost up the middle staircase and grab the
    shotgun nearby.  Use the shotgun to thin out the group of children, then head
    downstairs to finish off the rest.  Collect the ammo on your way down to the
    bottom floor, then use the checkpoint there.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Kill a small group of children beyond the door, then MAKE SURE you shoot the
    child wearing a sheet from a distance.  If you're close when you do this you
    might get caught in an explosion.  Jump on top of the large bear in the corner
    if you want some health, otherwise enter the next room.
    
    Rush into the closest corner and start filling the children with shotgun
    blasts, then collect the ammo and use the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    This room is VERY annoying if you're trying to get the tarot card for this
    stage and personally I think you should come back when you have some cards of
    you own to use and make this easier.
    
    Either way you want to keep moving and kill a medium-sized group of children in
    this tiny room.  Collect all ammo afterwards and use the nearby checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    Use the painkiller [or whatever weapon works best for you] to kill a line of
    sheet children.  Make sure they don't get too close to you or they'll cry and
    explode.  Grab the ammo in this room and the next one after the fight, then
    follow the arrow as you backtrack to the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Kill the flaming children and grab the health on the bear if you need it and
    didn't take it earlier.  Otherwise smash the pigs in the next room for more
    gold and collect the ammo before using the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 07
    -------
    
    A large enemy with a meat-cleaver starts chasing you now and you can't damage
    him, so instead you just need to keep your distance from him.
    
    Enter the room that he came from and grab the armour to your left, then enter
    the next room and kill a few enemies as you head down some stairs.  In the open
    room you want to kill more enemies and grab some ammo while still avoiding the
    big guy.
    
    Once all small enemies are dead simply attack the big guy in the back until he
    dies, then use the checkpoint down the nearby staircase.
    
    
    -------
    Part 08
    -------
    
    Grab the flamethrower and use it to torch the ghost, then head for the level
    exit.

    - Gold: Magic Gun Card [300 gold to place]
    
    Secrets:    04
    Holy Items: 04
    
    
    If you use the Iron Will, Double Time Bonus and Mercy cards, then you should be
    able to get this tarot card much easier.  Simply kill the enemies like normal
    until you reach the rollercoaster in part 06.  When you start this part you
    should have racked up 67 kills, which means that you are only allowed 21 more
    to get the tarot card.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    Grab the armour behind you but don't go much farther back or you'll fall to
    your death.
    
    Take a few steps forward as some clowns appear, these guys should fall with 1-2
    shots from the shotgun so be sure to use it.  The clowns fire a blast of energy
    if left alone for two long, so if you fire at them quickly you'll be fine.
    Once all the clowns are dead you can collect the stakes by the benches and head
    for the slanted metal post in the left corner.
    
    Go to the side of this post that's facing the handrail and climb up it like a
    ladder, then drop to the metal roof on your left and take the super health from
    the first secret area.  Climb back down to the ground now and head for the
    checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Go up the left staircase [the one without a giant wall in the way] and jump
    over the pit of spikes at the top.  Go through the turnstiles and kill a group
    of enemies with your painkiller.  Watch out for their fireballs and be sure to
    grab a large ammo box on by the left wall of the Acid Bath.  Follow the path as
    you kill a few more enemies, then collect the ammo and health before going to
    the house of pain.
    
    Face this building to see two windows just left of the sign.  Jump up the pipe
    and the corpses to land inside the right window, then take the holy items from
    the secret area inside.  Drop back down to the ground afterwards and use the
    checkpoint nearby.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Switch to the shotgun and start unloading it on the cornies, these enemies are
    made of deadly popcorn and also part human.  Either way they throw popcorn that
    releases harmful gas and their bodies also release this gas so don't get close
    to their corpses.  Be sure to grab the armour and ammo as you thin out your
    foes, then head for the checkpoint through the next set of turnstiles.
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    Grab the shotgun ammo as you kill clowns, cornies and flying enemies.  Grab
    the health if you need it [or if you didn't take it earlier] then head for the
    next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    Go through the turnstiles and walk up the twisting ramp, grab the ammo on the
    way and ignore the checkpoint for the moment.
    
    Instead you want to jump to the roof opposite the house of pain and head left
    along it.  Carefully walk under the pipe that's in your way, then jump to the
    roof of the carousel on the other side.  Walk around this roof to find some
    ammo in the third secret area, then drop to the ground once more.
    
    Head for the acid bath building [near the turnstiles by the spike pit] and
    enter the small booth just to the left of the building.  Exit the booth and
    enter the [now open] front door to the acid bath, then use the springboards to
    get across the acid.  Grab the armour, holy items and super health from the
    other side, then bounce back across.  Use the closest springboard to get
    through a nearby open window, then follow the arrow to the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Now you get to ride a rollercoaster for a bit as you shoot some flying enemies
    and some cornies.  It's pretty straight forward, just shoot any enemies you see
    so that they don't hit you first, otherwise watch your arrow for the rest and
    wait until the cart takes you right to the level exit.

    If you use the Magic Gun card from the Loony Park stage, then this card becomes
    much easier to get.  Also you can use the secondary function of the boltgun as
    well as the primary, just don't use ANY other weapon in this level.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    Pick up the bolt gun in front of you and use it to take out enemies up high and
    then a swarm of them down low.  Remember that you can zoom in by pressing your
    middle mouse button, or the Z key.  Collect all ammo around the room, then head
    for the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Zoom in and shoot the next group of enemies that comes down the stairs, then
    shoot the lines of explosive barrels and collect the gold inside.  Climb the
    stairs and grab the pile of ammo by the back wall, then go up the next set of
    stairs.  Walk down the hall and kill some more enemies around the corner, then
    grab the armour and ammo at the dead-end.  Go back around the corner and jump
    up the fallen ramp to get to the catwalk above.
    
    Go away from the checkpoint if you want a couple of secret areas and walk right
    to the wall.  Jump down to the windowsill on your right, then use a series of
    V-jumps [save after each one if you want to make things easier] to land on a
    wider ledge by the next wall.  Look in the corner and grab the holy item from
    the first secret area, then turn around and walk along the ledge.  Grab the
    nearby super health from the second secret area, then work your way back up to
    the catwalk where you first started this detour.
    
    Follow the path along the catwalk as you take some health, then use the
    checkpoint just beyond.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Collect the ammo to your right, then turn around and use the zoom to kill a
    small group of enemies on the rooftops in the distance.  Collect more ammo at
    the other end of this area, then enter the next passage.  Kill a few
    medium-sized groups of enemies here, and collect all the ammo.  You should
    notice one enemy that's stuck behind a barrier.  Shoot the explosive objects
    near him to kill him, then head for the checkpoint that appears.
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    Drop down the shaft and kill a group of enemies at the bottom.  Watch for
    enemies that drop down to you, then collect the ammo and follow the passage to
    a larger room.
    
    Kill more enemies in here and use the secondary function of your bolt gun to
    kill an enemy behind the barrier.  This will lower the barrier and let you
    clean out the rest of the enemies here.  Climb the ladder [turn up the
    brightness if you can't find it] to reach the platform above the last group of
    enemies, then take the ammo and armour before using the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    Drop down the shaft and hug the wall ahead of you to land on a small platform,
    look down and land on a similar platform, then grab the mask on the way down.
    Shoot a large group of enemies down here and shoot the barrels, then use the
    nearby checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Shoot the large fuel tank to reveal a springboard, then turn right and run at
    the springboard to reach a ledge above.  Kill a few enemies as you work your
    way around, then shoot a flaming box up here to reveal another springboard.
    Bounce up to the third level from here and kill enemies on both sides, then
    find the side with another burning box.  Shoot this box to reveal a third
    springboard, then look to the middle of the room to see a holy item on a pipe.
    
    Jump to this pipe to get the holy item from the last secret area, then bounce
    off the latest springboard to land on the large pipe above.  Walk across the
    pipe to get some armour and an electro driver, then follow the path around as a
    door opens just ahead of you.  Kill all enemies inside and grab the large ammo
    boxes, then use the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 07
    -------
    
    Carefully walk to the edge of the shaft until you start climbing down the
    ladder, then turn to face the ladder as you climb down so that you don't fall.
    Walk along the sewers at the bottom until a wall appears, then get ready to
    fight some tough enemies.  Use your freezer to make short work out of them,
    otherwise use your flamethrower and sub-machinegun to start things off.  Follow
    this with your strongest weapons as fast as you can because these guys can take
    a beating.  Grab the souls to restore more health than usual, then continue
    along the sewers.  Shoot the final spider enemy in the face [when all his
    feet are touching the ground] as you keep your distance and it should die
    pretty quickly.  Climb the ladder afterwards to warm to the beginning of this
    level, then go through the level exit.

    I used the Mercy, Iron Will and Rage cards (among others) to earn the card from
    this boss.
    
    I find it works best to use the quicksave when each part of the battle starts
    and DEFINITELY use it right after stunning the boss in part 02 and part 03.
    This way you can try one cannon and if it misses the boss you can reload your
    save and try another cannon.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    [If you want to get the secret for this stage then you need to find the metal
    panel on the floor near the middle area of the room.  If you are standing on
    this panel and facing the middle of the room, then you want to be close to the
    boxes to your right.  Get near these boxes and STAY on the ground when the boss
    pounds it with his feet.  This will damage you, but it will also launch you
    into the air.  Land on the closest box and jump to the nearby holy item.]
    
    
    When the fight starts you should rapidly jump around the middle part of the
    room to collect ammo and some armor.
    
    
    This boss is a very large spider and he tries to stomp you with his front legs,
    or fire heat-seaking fireballs much like the smaller spiders in other levels.
    
    Like those spiders, you want to shoot this one in the face when all of its feet
    are on the ground.  If you have some cards you can use them to speed up this
    process.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Things change a little once you've drained half of the boss's health.  You
    can't hurt him by shooting him with your weapons anymore, plus his whole body
    is electrified.  Instead you need to wait until he stops moving and opens his
    mouth wide.  At this point a large spark forms in his mouth and fires straight
    at you in a few seconds.
    
    Shoot the spark while it's still in the boss's mouth and it will leave him
    stunned for a brief period.  During this time you want to run (and jump
    repeatedly, to go faster) towards one fo the four cannons in the corners of
    this room.  Run inside and walk up to the cannon (unfortunately you can't aim
    them) to fire a shot.
    
    If the shot misses the boss then you picked the wrong cannon, but if the shot
    hits him then he will no longer be electrified.  At this point you want to use
    more cards and unload your weapons into his face to drain the rest of his
    health.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    You would think the boss should be dead by this point, but unfortunately he
    electrifies himself one final time.  This means that you need to stun him once
    more and shoot him with a cannon to truly kill him and finish the battle.

    - Finish the level in maximum 20 minutes
    - Gold: Demon Morph Card [666 gold to place]
    
    Secrets:    04
    Holy Items: 07
    
    
    To get this card I used the Mercy, Double Time Bonus, Rage, Iron Will and
    Health Stealer cards.  I used the first set at the beginning to get rid of the
    first spider quickly.  I used the second set when fighting the second spider,
    and I used the final set just before the final spider.  While fighting the fat
    enemies it was helpful to shield myself from the flying cars and quickly kill
    the smaller enemies so I could kill the fat ones.
    
    Otherwise you want to shoot all enemies as fast as possible whenever your arrow
    tracks some new ones.  Pause the game if you need to decide what weapon to use
    next and MAKE SURE you jump constantly to move as fast as possible when
    travelling between areas.
    
    Save your game between checkpoints and definitely save at the final spider.
    Lead him outside and shoot the truck high above, then make sure it falls on him
    before you finish him off.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    Grab the ammo ahead of you and the armour to your right, then collect whatever
    other ammo you find as you kill a large group of enemies and one giant spider.
    For the group of enemies you want to keep your distance because they explode if
    they get too close to you.  There is some more armour to the left of the stairs
    where you started, and there's a super health near the far right corner.
    
    You don't want to get too close to the spider either, but you do need to shoot
    it in the face.  The spider occasionally slams the ground with its front legs
    which hurts if it hits you directly.  This attack also hurts you if you're on
    the ground at the time as it sends you flying into the air.  When you see the
    spider's front legs rise into the air, be prepared to jump before they hit the
    ground to avoid damage.  The spider also releases a burst of gas from its mouth
    occasionally.  This gas stops you from walking for a brief period [although you
    can still aim and shoot] so you want to avoid it.
    
    Once all enemies and the spider are dead you should collect any remaining souls
    and ammo, then use the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Climb the stairs and grab the flamethrower, then look up as you take a few
    steps forward.  Kill the enemies that are vomiting down on you, then follow
    the catwalk around the corner to reach the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Take a few steps and jump along the ledge on the left side of a nearby railing
    to avoid some fire, then grab the holy item from the secret area up ahead.
    
    Drop to the ground now as you grab the ammo and armour nearby, then kill
    another large group of enemies before you use the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    Watch for falling cars as more human enemies and some flying ones appear.  The
    flying ones drop molotovs on you so use your chaingun to get rid of them
    quickly.  Grab the armour at the left end and the super health at the right end
    if you need either, then head for the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    [Jump from the top of the second fire escape back towards the top of the first
    one.  Use the windows to get across, then jump to the rooftop and collect the
    holy items and armour from the secret area there.]
    
    Jump up the fire escape until you reach the top, then face the checkpoint and
    fire escapes ahead of you.  Rapidly jump as you jump off of the railing in
    front of you to reach the next fire escape, then climb to the top.  Do the same
    type of jump to reach the next fire escape, then use the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Drop to the ground and approach the cars to release a group of enemies and
    another large spider.  Grab the super health and armour on the right side of
    the area, then kill a group of flying enemies.  Collect whatever ammo you can
    find, then head for the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 07
    -------
    
    These enemies throw body parts at you, but otherwise they're the same guys
    you've been fighting this whole stage.  Shoot up the group and take all the
    ammo, then squeeze behind the cars in the right corner.  Take some ammo and a
    holy item from the secret area here, then use the nearby checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 08
    -------
    
    Climb the ramp and start collecting ammo, then kill a group of enemies and
    finish collecting ammo.  Take the super health by the windows, then use the
    next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 09
    -------
    
    Head up the next ramp and start pelting the fat enemies with grenades from your
    stakegun.  You'll know when they die because they throw their knife at you and
    then their own body.  Keep your distance from the cars as well because if one
    gets attacked you can get caught in the blast and take some damage.  Collect
    the super health after the fight if you didn't get it earlier, then use the
    checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 10
    -------
    
    Walk up to the gate in front of you and kill the group of enemies behind it,
    then enter the teleporter up ahead [unless you want to get a secret first].
    
    [If you want the secret here, then you should jump from the windowsill on your
    right to the window on the nearby wall.  Use V-jumps to continue along the wall
    and down two rows of windows, then continue using V-jumps in this row to reach
    a holy item and a secret area.  Now you can backtrack and go use the
    teleporter.]
    
    Kill all the enemies in the food court here as you avoid their shots, then take
    whatever ammo you can find and use the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 11
    -------
    
    Kill a few enemies beyond the wall and follow the passage to kill a few more,
    then turn around and use a long distance weapon [the shotgun is not very good]
    to kill the enemies in the distance.  Grab any leftover ammo once they're dead
    and use the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 12
    -------
    
    Go to the very bottom of the stairs and grab the ammo along the way, then hide
    under the stairs as you lob grenades at the group of enemies with your
    stakegun.
    
    Take the chaingun just outside and follow the passage as you collect some ammo,
    armour and reach the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 13
    -------
    
    Take a few steps to reveal a few fat enemies and some smaller ones.  You CAN
    NOT damage the fat enemies until the small ones are dead so find them quickly.
    Your top priority should be blowing up cars though, because the enemies start
    throwing them at you here and they do A LOT of damage.  Basically shoot any
    small enemies as you see them and start using your chaingun on any cars that
    start floating, because the next second they'll be flying at you.
    
    Collect ammo and armour as you destroy all the cars, then shoot all the small
    enemies and finish off the fat ones with a few rockets.  Collect any items that
    you may have missed, then use the nearby checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 14
    -------
    
    Take a few steps and then start jumping back as a pile of cars fly everywhere,
    now walk onwards and notice a large spider.  Ignore the spider and quickly run
    out of the tunnel, then look straight up.  You should see a really large tanker
    truck way up high.  Save your game and shoot that truck when the spider gets
    close so that it falls right on him and explodes.  After the fight simply
    continue down the passage and use the level exit.

    If you use the Health Stealer card it makes getting the tarot card for this
    level MUCH easier because you get some health EVERY time you damage or kill an
    enemy.
    
    I used the Iron Will, Mercy, Double Time Bonus and Rage cards as well as Health
    Stealer.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    Watch your arrow throughout this stage because it's easy to miss an enemy and
    not know where he's shooting you from.
    
    Walk forward and grab some shotgun ammo, then start shooting the first group of
    enemies as they come around the corner.  These guys have guns and grenades so
    you can't really afford to stand still, but you should try to use whatever
    cover you can as you fight.
    
    Shoot more enemies in the windows to your right and take the ammo there but
    keep an eye on your health.  Run along these windows and grab the super health
    and armour up ahead, then finish off both groups.  There is also a tank to deal
    with [try to stay close to the tank and fire constantly at the top of it]
    during this first wave so keep moving and shoot it as fast as possible to get
    rid of it.
    
    Enter the next area and stay close to the right wall as you shoot a few enemies
    up high here.  Watch out for a tank up ahead and some more enemies, shoot them
    both as best you can and destroy another tank nearby.  Freeze and shatter the
    commander to get rid of him quickly, then move the debris to collect the ammo
    and head for the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Shoot a couple of groups of enemies [one comes through a door to your
    right] here with your sub-machinegun, then take out a commander and a few
    enemies in the windows.  Grab all ammo and armour, then backtrack to the start
    of this part.
    
    Look at the first pile of junk on your left and notice the metal piece sticking
    out of it.  Jump repeatedly near this metal piece to get inside the window to
    the left of it, then take the holy item from the secret area inside.  Jump back
    through the window afterwards and head for the nearby checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Use your flamethrower to torch the enemies in a nearby alcove as you rush
    inside, then turn around and use your minigun to take out a few enemies up
    high.  As long as you keep moving and watch carefully for grenades you should
    be fine, plus you can always go back to the alcove for a breather.  Collect all
    the ammo afterwards and head for the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    Head down the stairs and shoot through the enemies in the hallway, then enter
    the alcoves for some ammo.  Turn right at the end of the hall and fire a shot
    at the barrels, then back up a little so you don't get caught in the blast.
    
    Enter the tunnel to collect all the gold, then kill more enemies in the next
    tunnel.  Check all alcoves for ammo as you go, then enter the next area.  Shoot
    a few more enemies and shoot a barrel to get rid of the gate, then grab the
    health and ammo up ahead.  Shoot more enemies in the next tunnel, then climb
    the stairs to reach the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    Take all the ammo in here and enter the next room, then fire a rocket or
    grenade at the group of enemies before finishing them off.  Take the armour and
    super health from their alcove, then enter the next area.
    
    Use your rockets to take out the enemies up high, then use rockets or grenades
    to thin out the small group of enemies down low.  Finish them off with your
    weapon of choice, then go to the mound of dirt in the back left corner.  Jump
    up this mound and carefully jump along the nearby metal piece to get in the
    open window.  Grab the holoy item from the secret area here, then return to the
    ground and head for the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Shoot a small group of enemies in the alcove to your right, then kill a pair of
    suicide bombers [try freezing them before you attack] before they take you down
    with them.  Grab some ammo behind you, then destroy the tank up ahead.  Shoot
    another group of enemies and grab more ammo to your right at the fork.
    
    Head left now and kill a few groups of enemies as well as some up high on the
    walls.  Shoot a few bombers along the way and return to the fork.  Check the
    wall by the crater in the sidewalk, then jump through the open window to find
    an empty secret area.  Jump back through the window and follow the arrow to the
    next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 07
    -------
    
    Shoot a few groups of enemies, a couple commanders and a pair of tanks, then
    head left at the fork in the road and check behind a wall for some armour that
    you'll likely be needing.
    
    Turn around and shoot some more groups of enemies to reach another fork.  Shoot
    a pair of tanks and some enemies here, then go right and straight for some
    ammo.  Head left to finish off the rest of the enemies and grab some shotgun
    ammo by the left wall, then use the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 08
    -------
    
    This last part is quite hard and it has you fighting a large group of enemies,
    a few bombers, and about three or four tanks.  There is some ammo around the
    walls but there is only one health that I could find to your right by the fire
    when you enter this area.
    
    Pretty much shoot all enemies as fast as you can and KEEP MOVING.  I found that
    it worked well to use a wall for cover from the tanks, then pick off the
    smaller enemies from there.  Once all enemies are dead you should see the level
    exit, but MAKE SURE you save your game before going to it.  Once you get close
    to the level exit it disappears and you hear a bomb falling, so RUN AWAY as
    fast as you can or that bomb will land right on top of you.  After the bomb has
    exploded you can go back and use the level exit successfully.
    
    
    [If you want to find two more secret areas though you can do the following once
    the final bomb has fallen.
    
    Enter the broken building behind the statue and enter the only open door to
    find a holy item in one secret area.
    
    Go to the point where you used a checkpoint to start this part, then follow the
    streets back.  Go right at the first fork, left at the second fork, then turn
    right around the corner and enter a tunnel on your left.  Take the holy item
    from this secret area, then go and use the level exit.]

    Holy Items: 04
    
    
    *NOTE* I got over 330 souls and failed to get the card, then I reloaded an
    earlier save and got exactly 330 souls and still failed to get it.  I then used
    the Dark Soul card and finished the level with exactly 250 souls and still
    failed to get the card.
    
    Apparently this is a common problem for a lot of people, but this glitch is
    fixed in the official patch [as of V1.6.1] for the game, which you can find at:
    http://www.gamershell.com/download_8160.shtml
    
    
    If you don't want to download such a large file you can also get a much smaller
    UNNOFICIAL fix created by Kalme.  You can use his patch here:
    http://www.kalme.de/booh/files/Booh-Colloseum-Fix.zip
    
    Simply extract that zip to painkiller\Data\Levels\C6L6_Colloseum\ (effectively
    creating a Levels folder in the Data folder) and run the game like normal.
    
    
    In order to get the card for this stage it means that you need to get 330 souls
    [or 250 souls if you use the Dark Soul card].  In either case you want to kill
    the enemies slowly and run a lot to keep your distance from them as you collect
    the souls.  It helps a lot if you use the Soul Catcher card to bring souls
    towards you.  The Soul Keeper card is also good because you have more time to
    collect the souls before they disappear.
    
    This stage also has a LOT of gold, so if you need some [to place some other
    cards for example] you should come here to get it.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    Enter the room up ahead and kill about 20 warriors [grenades or rockets work
    wonders if they bunch together into groups], then check all alcoves for some
    health, armour and ammo before walking through the gate.  Approach the bowl up
    ahead to release some more enemies, then kill them all and check their alcoves
    for more ammo.
    
    Use the lever that's glowing blue [by the bowl] to open a pair of doors.  Kill
    another group of enemies beyond these doors, then grab all the ammo and health
    in the alcoves before using the first checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Take all the ammo in here and grab the holy item on the left end of the table,
    then save your game and take the key.  Quickly turn around and rush out of the
    room if you can, then kill the group of enemies [including one large
    rock-throwing enemy] and head for the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Head right down the hall until a gate appears, then turn around and kill a
    small group of rock-throwing enemies.  Collect the health if you need it and
    head for the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    Kill a very small group of enemies up ahead, then go left at the fork for some
    ammo, before collecting more ammo in the right path and using the checkpoint
    there.
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    Collect all the ammo around the edges of this room and grab the armour LAST,
    then kill the group of enemies and use the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Simply follow the passage and grab the ammo to reach another checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 07
    -------
    
    Shoot the barrels to find some ammo, then grab the super health to release the
    enemies.  Use a few grenades to really thin them out, then finish off the rest.
    Enter the room where the enemies came from for some ammo, then return to the
    previous room and use the checkpoint on the stairs.
    
    
    -------
    Part 08
    -------
    
    Follow the hall and rapidly jump to get past the barriers, then turn the next
    corner and look very carefully at the ground as you save your game.  There is a
    gap in the floor [turn up your brightness if you can't find it] so you need to
    take a running jump [jump rapidly to build up speed] across the left side to
    clear it.  Save your game again before using the same technique on the stone
    slabs on the floor to clear the next gap.  Save once again and use a stone slab
    to your right to clear the final gap.  You'll likely need to turn left as you
    jump to land the final jump, but once you're across you can continue along the
    passage.
    
    Save your game and watch the ceiling as you carefully rush past the falling
    blocks, you can save at a safe spot past the first group if you want or do them
    both at once.  Either way you should enter the next room and drop to the floor,
    then grab as much ammo and health as you can before climbing back up a ladder.
    
    Carefully watch the swinging logs and walk past them when it's safe.  Save your
    game on any spots between the logs so you don't need to get past them again.
    One log moves slowly and doesn't swing very far, so you need to go to either
    edge of the bridge and jump past the log when it swings away from you.  Work
    your way past the last few logs as a section of the bridge collapses, then save
    your game.  Move to the left edge of the bridge and look for a plank of wood
    sticking out ahead of you.  Carefully jump to this plank while avoiding the
    spiked balls, then save your game.
    
    Enter the next passage and carefully run past the fire when it's not coming out
    the walls.  Take the armour on your left and carefully work your way past the
    spinning blades, then grab the health on the other side and climb the stairs to
    reach the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 09
    -------
    
    Kill a group of enemies that jumps down from above, then shoot the trio of
    large enemies.  Head down the stairs and kill a small group of enemies, but
    watch out for the square tiles on the floor as you fight.  If you step on these
    tiles some darts will fire at you, so try your best to avoid them.  Climb the
    stairs up ahead and use the checkpoint at the top.
    
    
    -------
    Part 10
    -------
    
    Kill a few enemies in this tunnel, then enter the next room and grab the
    armour.  Quickly turn around and kill enemies on BOTH sides of you.  Grenades
    work nicely to thin out the groups, otherwise the freezer works well on the
    bigger guys.
    
    Head down the hall to the next room and kill enemies on BOTH sides of you.  You
    can jump rapidly around the room if you want to put some distance between you
    and the enemies.  Either way you should enter the next passage after the battle
    and use the checkpoint there.
    
    
    -------
    Part 11
    -------
    
    Enter the next room and kill a small group of enemies, then go through the gate
    up ahead and kill a larger group that comes from BOTH SIDES.  Use the lever [it
    glows blue] on the right side of the room once the enemies are dead, then use a
    second lever on the other side of the room.  Go through the gate to your right
    to find some super health in a secret area, then head back to the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 12
    -------
    
    Grab the ammo to your right and hide under the upper floor as you kill the
    ground enemies.  Once they're dead you can finish off the few enemies on the
    upper level.  Walk through the hole in the fence and take as much ammo as you
    can carry, then grab the key in the left corner.  Turn around and kill a group
    of enemies, then grab whatever ammo you can carry.
    
    There are two secrets that you can get in this room if you want to.  The first
    is near the super health on the wooden beam.  Go to the right end of this beam
    and on the other side of the wall there should be a ladder leaning against it.
    Climb this ladder and drop onto the wooden beam to your left, then jump from
    here to the beam with the super health.  Take a few more steps on this beam and
    you should see a rope running horizontally underneath it.  Save your game here
    and turn left, then carefully jump along this rope to reach some ammo and
    armour in a secret area on top of a wooden frame.
    
    For the second secret you want to use the second ladder that's on your right as
    soon as you pass through the hole in the fence.  Climb this ladder and drop on
    the wooden beam to your right, then take a few steps in the opposite direction
    on this beam.  Turn around to face the hole in the fence, then run and jump so
    you land on the section of fence to the left of this hole.  Quickly jump from
    this fence to the next fence section on your left, then jump once again to yet
    another fence section on your left.  Finally jump from this fence section to a
    narrow ledge on the outside of the upper level to your right.  Jump the railing
    here and grab the holy items to your left in this secret area, then head right
    for ammo and armour on a nearby wooden beam.
    
    Now return to the ground [or just ignore these secrets] and head for the
    checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 13
    -------
    
    Simply climb the stairs and head right to reach another checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 14
    -------
    
    Kill a small group of enemies in this tunnel and head for the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 15
    -------
    
    Climb the stairs and turn around, then squeeze on both sides of the railings to
    find some ammo and a secret area.  Turn around once more and enter the next
    room, then kill a small group of enemies and collect all the ammo.  Go down the
    hall and shoot a small group of enemies, then head for the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 16
    -------
    
    Enter the room ahead and collect the ammo, then climb the stairs and take the
    key there.  Quickly turn around and kill a group of enemies, then collect more
    ammo and climb up either set of stairs to reach a gate.
    
    Look beside the gate and you should notice a narrow ledge along the wall just
    beyond the railing.  Jump over the railing and walk along this ledge until it
    flattens out, then save your game and carefully jump to the lowest point on the
    nearby roof.  Grab the ammo from this secret area, then return to the ground
    and use the checkpoint there.
    
    
    -------
    Part 17
    -------
    
    Climb the stairs and enter the arena, then whatever armour, health and ammo
    that you need.
    
    You get to fight a LOT of enemies here, but there are also a lot of items
    [health, ammo] that you can use during the fight so it's not that bad.  As long
    as you keep moving you should be just fine, you can even jump rapidly to move
    really fast if you need to.
    
    Otherwise kill the enemies until a few pits open up and fires get set in the
    middle of the arena.  Kill all the small enemies now and start shooting the
    flames in the middle of the arena.  Shoot the flames on every pole until
    they're all out, then finish off the big guy.  You have to shoot the fires
    first because he is invincible until they are all out.
    
    Once the big guy is gone, simply go back to the previous room and go up all the
    stairs, then use the level exit.

    - Kill all enemies
    - Silver: 666 Ammo Card [2000 gold to place]
    
    Secrets:    10
    Holy Items: 21
    
    
    When I got this card I used the Mercy, Double Time Bonus and Magic Gun cards
    among others.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    Simply take a few steps forward to reach the first checkpoint and start a
    minecart ride.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Ride the cart until it stops, then jump off and shoot the group of enemies.
    Collect the armour at the end of this set of tracks, then jump right to the
    next set.  Grab some ammo and turn around to grab even more at the far end of
    the tracks.  Finally turn around once more and head for the checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Follow the tracks and kill the enemies up high and in the distance.  Watch out
    for those that use cannons to attack you, then continue down the right tracks
    to find some ammo and FIVE holy items at the very end.  Backtrack a little and
    head for the next checkpoint to ride another minecart.
    
    
    [You should have 21 kills at this point]
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    [If you want the card for this level you'll want to use your gold cards here to
    make sure you kill ALL the enemies.
    
    Shoot all the enemies up high and behind you along the way to the large room,
    then shoot all enemies in the large room as your cart circles around it.  As
    you leave the large room you should have 42 kills.
    
    Your minecart runs over a line of skeletons next and you should probably use
    your cards a second time as you shoot the enemies in the next few rooms.  Pay
    careful attention to your arrow as you shoot high and behind you.  Once your
    cart stops you should have 81 kills.]
    
    
    Ride the minecart and shoot the enemies along the way.  I found that the
    freezer and the chaingun both worked quite well.  Jump off the minecart once it
    stops, then walk to the edge of the track with the gap to warp to the other
    side.  Continue along the track and smash the coffins, then grab all the ammo
    beyond and enter the next room.
    
    Shoot the group of enemies in here and watch out for the voodoo guy, if he
    stabs himself you take damage so kill him FAST!  Enter the next room after the
    fight and shoot some more enemies, there are also some voodoo enemies here so
    kill them quickly when you see them.  Collect the ammo after the battle and
    jump across the broken ledge to get some armour.  Rapidly jump up the debris at
    the other side to reach the next checkpoint.
    
    
    [You should have 121 kills at this point]
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    Enter the next room to kill another group of enemies, then grab the ammo and
    head for the checkpoint.
    
    
    [You should have 147 kills at this point]
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Grab the armour and kill the wave of skeletons, then shoot a group of pirates
    and finally take out some cannon enemies and some more skeletons.  Once all
    groups are dead you can use the level exit.

    Take the ammo boxes ahead of you and use the checkpoint just beyond them.
    
    
    -------
    Part 02
    -------
    
    Shoot a group of skeletons in here and jump up the right side of the small ammo
    ledge to grab the boxes on top of it.  Climb the ladder in the middle of the
    room for some more ammo, then jump to a nearby ledge for more ammo and some
    armour.  Finally drop down to the ground once more and use the nearby
    checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 03
    -------
    
    Jump over the debris and kill a small group of enemies [including one with
    cannons up high].  Jump left at the top to reach a small ledge, then turn
    around and jump to a bridge for some ammo.
    
    Backtrack to the top of this area and continue your climb into the next room.
    Use the wood to jump to the ledge on your left for some ammo, then jump across
    the LARGE bridge for some more ammo.  Save your game and carefully jump to the
    beam with the checkpoint, then walk over and use it.
    
    
    -------
    Part 04
    -------
    
    Carefully jump to the ladder in front of you, then climb to the top to reach
    the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 05
    -------
    
    Shoot a few enemies in the distance and grab the ammo up ahead on the bridge,
    then enter the next room and shoot a larger group of enemies.  Grab the ammo
    and use the debris to grab some more on a ledge to your right, then use the
    next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 06
    -------
    
    Head through the passage until a wall appears, then quickly turn around and
    kill a group of enemies.  Turn around once more and continue through the
    passage to reach the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 07
    -------
    
    Climb the first ladder and snipe a trio of enemies, then save your game and
    carefully jump to the next ladder.  Climb to the top and snipe a pair of
    enemies, then use the nearby health and climb yet another ladder.
    
    Turn around at the top to see a ledge with some ammo and a holy item, then save
    your game.  Line yourself up with the left beam on this ledge so that you can
    clear the rope in your way, then back up and jump rapidly to build up speed
    before you jump over the gap and land on that small ledge.  Grab the items in
    this secret area, then turn around and take another running jump towards the
    last ladder that you climbed.  Climb up the ladder once more and use the
    checkpoint at the top.
    
    
    -------
    Part 08
    -------
    
    Take the ammo as you kill some skeletons and a voodoo guy, then use the
    checkpoint on the bridge up ahead.

    Part 09
    -------
    
    Shoot a cannonball enemy on both sides of you, then continue along the bridge
    and a ledge beyond [turn up your brightness if you can't see it].  Hug the wall
    and jump over the beam in your way, then save your game and climb the nearby
    ladder.  Grab the ammo and health in the small area here, then jump along the
    blocks to reach the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 10
    -------
    
    Turn right and jump to a ladder, then climb to the top and get ammo on BOTH
    sides of you.  Now climb another ladder and use the checkpoint at the top.
    
    
    -------
    Part 11
    -------
    
    Kill a group of skeletons in this next area and collect some ammo on a ledge to
    your left.  Continue through the passage until you reach an open room, then
    walk to the front of the machine attached to the rope that's spanning the room.
    Wait until the cart stops, then save your game and jump to the checkpoint ahead
    of you.
    
    
    -------
    Part 12
    -------
    
    Kill skeletons [on both sides of you] and cannonball enemies in this passage,
    then grab the ammo as you follow it to an open room.  Cross the bridge here and
    save your game, then jump to the teleporter on your left.
    
    Quickly use your strongest weapons [and your tarot cards if you want] on the
    voodoo enemies here before they kill you, then take all the ammo in the room
    [especially around the towers] and use the next teleporter.
    
    Walk right along this ledge and jump at the end to reach the area above, then
    use the checkpoint to your left.
    
    
    -------
    Part 13
    -------
    
    Walk around the middle of the bridge until you get lifted out of the pit, then
    jump onto the ledge beside you when you stop moving.  Climb the nearby ladder
    for some ammo, then use a V-jump [jump out at an angle and turn back in to
    effectively jump around the post in your way] to reach the armour if you want
    it.
    
    Climb back down the ladder and head down another ladder nearby to reach the
    ground, then shoot some skeletons and snipe some others up high.  Snipe some
    canon enemies next and then do the same for some voodoo enemies.  Once all are
    dead you can collect some ammo and head for the next checkpoint.
    
    
    -------
    Part 14
    -------
    
    Shoot many skeletons here until some cannon and voodoo enemies show up, then
    finish them all off.  Finally follow your arrow and use the level exit.
    
    
    **NOTE: Here is a contribution from one of my readers, Adski.  He has found all
    of the secret locations for this stage.  I have quoted his instructions below,
    since my current computer cannot run the game.
    
    
    "1. From the very start, jump down the side of the chasm. There is a secret
    hidden behind a pillar at one end of the chasm. It is extremely tricky to get
    back up again but it is possible, find a sloping corner.
    
    2. Just before Checkpoint 3, look down, underneath you, to see the yellow, soul
    health. Just drop down onto it. This may be easier if you "bounce" off one of
    the ropes during the fall.
    
    3. Before Checkpoint 7, just after the ladders. Turn back to face the ladders
    and look down slightly to spot the secret. Take a running "dodge" jump.
    
    4. Just before Checkpoint 8, turn around to see the fallen, sloping staircase.
    Walk up here and notice the beam in front of you and the broken track beyond
    that with the "ALL AMMO" crate. Use the rope to get to the beam then jump
    towards the right wall and "bounce" off towards the track.
    
    5. At Checkpoint 8, look down towards the winch on the wall before you, with
    some armour upon. Step back and take a running jump. You WILL take damage!  You
    will need to fall even further, to get out of here, taking even more damage.
    
    6. After Checkpoint 10, as you make your way up the slope, there is a bridge,
    where some enemies are situated, this is the secret. Just past it, is a raised
    rocky outcrop which you need to get onto. You need to run along the edge of
    this outcrop heading towards the bridge and then, at the end of the rocky
    outcrop, jump across towards the sloped wall to the left of the bridge and then
    "bounce" back onto the bridge.
    
    7. Just before the conveyor cart, look down to the left of the walkway to spot
    a ledge, which leads up to a large opening. Take a running jump toward the
    ledge, but be careful of the slight overhang above it (which you may not be
    able to identify until after one attemp), as this will stop your forward
    momentum, preventing you from reaching the ledge. You will take damage! Then
    make your way up the ledge to the opening. In here is a lot of gold and holy
    items, also there is a chalice on one of the corners of the structure, this is
    not an extra secret!
    
    Getting back out of here is almost as dangerous as getting in and you will
    suffer two more amounts of damage. Leave the area by walking up to the ledge,
    look vertically down and to your left, you need to leap to the narrow ledge and
    then down onto a winch mechanism. From here you can drop down onto a walkway.
    Then make your way back to the conveyor cart.
    
    8. At the top of the pit, look towards the massive wooden fence which blocks
    your way to Checkpoint 12. Now turn to your left, slowly, until you see the
    first raised wooden platform with some treasure chests on, above a rocky ledge.
    This is the secret. Find your way onto the rocky ledge and walk under and past
    the wooden platform to the deadend of the ledge. Facing the corner (away from
    the wooden ledge), jump up and then back, onto the ledge.
    
    9. Before using the end teleporter, you need to climb the ladder of the central
    structure. From here you need to get to the level above by using the A-frame of
    the winch system. There is a rock formation of a mouth and teeth, which
    contains the secret. Enter between the teeth on the right hand side, as you
    face it. Then exit from the opposite side.
    
    10. After leaving the Jaw secret (9), turn right at the platform, onto and over
    the rocks to find this secret."

    used the Mercy, Double Time Bonus and Rage cards among others.  Once Alastor
    gets punched by the golem you can use your cards and blast him to kill him
    really fast.  Otherwise you want to jump as much as possible while following
    the ammo trail before the battle to save time.
    
    
    -------
    Part 01
    -------
    
    Follow the trail of ammo and guns until you come to a cliff, then save your
    game and drop down to start the boss battle.
    
    You may notice that your weapons have no effect on Alastor, but there is some
    armour and super health around if you need it.  There are also a few orange
    rings in this area and they are very important to the battle.
    
    Basically you need to stand on one of these rings if you see little lights
    rising out of them.  Once you stand on one of these rings you NEED to get hit
    by one of Alastor's attacks.  At this point a stone golem appears nearby and
    starts walking towards Alastor.  The golem can't take much damage though so try
    your best to keep Alastor's attention on you.  Once the Golem manages to land a
    punch on Alastor he falls to one knee.  At this point you should use your cards
    and unleash your guns on him.
    
    After the battle you can sit back and watch the ending, then you can try your
    luck at Nightmare difficulty to play the Pentagon stage.

                                 (I) BLACK TAROT CARDS
    ###############################################################################
    
    In every level of the game there is a chance to earn a black tarot card by
    meeting certain extra objectives.  These cards can then be equipped [or placed
    as the game calls it] in any stage that you play to make things easier for you.
    
    The cards come in either silver or gold and the colour is pretty important,
    although for once silver is better than gold.  Gold cards that are equipped
    must be activated by pressing 'E' and they only last for a brief period.  You
    can use your gold card set once per stage [unless you find better cards that
    change that].  Silver cards on the other hand are always active, so you pretty
    much equip and forget about them.
    
    However you can't just equip cards that you have collected, you need to make
    sure that you have enough money to do so.  For this reason you want to smash as
    many objects as possible, so that you find lots of gold and are able to use
    your well-earned cards.
    
    Whenever you remove a card that you have placed you receive half the money back
    that you spent to place it originally.  A list of which cards are in which
    stages appears below.
    
    
    01 - Weapon Modifier     [Has the same effect as the skull mask.]
    02 - Magic Gun           [Unlimited ammo.]
    03 - The Sceptre         [All enemies are weak.]
    04 - Health Regeneration [Health starts regenerating 10 seconds after the last
                              damage.]
    05 - Demon Morph         [Morph into demon.]
    06 - Fear                [All enemies have 90% of initial HP.]
    07 - Rebirth             [Fully regenerate health and armour.]
    08 - 666 Ammo            [Get 666 ammo for all weapons at the start of the
                              level.]
    09 - ???                 [???]
    10 - Health Stealer      [5% of the damage to the enemy goes to player's
                              health.]

    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
    listed below.
    
    
    For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:
    
    fecalord2002 (AT) yahoo (DOT) ca
    
    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
