    ===================================DISCLAIMER==================================
    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

                                     (B) CONTROLS
    ###############################################################################
    
    As you may expect from this kind of game, you can play it quite easily with
    only one hand. ;)
    
    That being said here are the controls:
    
    
    Left-click                      - Move forward.
    Right-click                     - Move backward.
    Left-click + right-click [or Z] - Attack.
    X                               - Crouch.
    
    F1 - Menu [save/load/quit game].
    F2 - View mode [pivot the camera around your character].
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                       (C) TIPS
    ###############################################################################
    
    - The very bottom right button starts the game once you click the game
      shortcut.
    
    - Your medkits/O2 tanks refill in some areas so don't be afraid to use them
      [press F1].
    
    - If you enter a section with very little health/O2 you can sometimes die and
      choose continue to refill your health/O2 without having to use an item [just
      be sure to save before you try it].
    
    - The only times you can't save are during cutscenes or boss battles, otherwise
      use it whenever you want.
    
    - My game crashed repeatedly when I ran it under Windows 2000, but it played
      much better on Windows XP.  If you experience problems you may want to try a
      different operating system [after trying other simpler options of course,
      like updating all associated drivers, etc.]

    =====
    House
    =====
    
    Now that you've seen the opening cutscenes you finally have control of your
    character.  Press F1 to bring up the menu, then save your game [select the left
    option when prompted to confirm the save].  Walk to the door behind you and
    skip the message, then follow the hall until you reach some stairs.  Skip the
    message there and check the open door midway down the hall on your left.  Skip
    this message too and head for the first door once more.  You should see some
    red text and hear a noise during this message, now head for the open door once
    again to start a cutscene.
    
    
    =========
    Team Ship
    =========
    
    Go to the door ahead of you to ride the elevator to the second floor, then
    enter the next door straight ahead to start a cutscene.  Midway through the
    cutscene you get to access a menu with four choices.  Left-click any of the
    choices to select them and right-click to back out of a menu.  Select the third
    choice at the first menu to save your game, then select the last choice to
    leave this menu.
    
    
    ======
    Cavern
    ======
    
    Walk along the path and turn the corner, then crouch [press X] under the beams
    that the turret fires at you.  Walk towards the turret while crouching under
    its beams every so often, then attack the turret [press both mouse buttons] to
    destroy it.
    
    Now you are at a fork with three possible paths, you want to take the path to
    your right.  If you hear any buzzing you should attack as fast as possible or a
    small flying enemy [bee] will crash into you.  Otherwise run past the next
    turret carefully and follow the path.
    
    Run along the path and crouch under the next turret's beams, then approach it
    and destroy it like before.  Continue down the path and crouch under the next
    beams if needed, then ignore that path and head right instead.  Run down this
    path [kill the bees if you want] and head for the door beyond.
    
    In this room there are two turrets at the back wall and a bee generator to your
    left.  Quickly run to the bee generator and destroy it, then clear out the
    remaining bees.  Now hug the left wall and run towards the closest turret,
    crouch if needed as you destroy the turret and the other one nearby.  Check the
    door here to find that it is locked, then turn around and enter the door to
    your left.
    
    Go down the hall here and crouch under the beams around the corner, then
    carefully move through the lasers as they open.  Destroy the turret once you
    reach it, then approach the nearby button to use it [a message appears].
    Return to the previous room and enter the door that was locked before to start
    a boss battle.
    
    
    ================
    Boss - Robo Crab
    ================
    
    For this boss there are four possible areas that you can fire at.
    Left-clicking fires your guns, and right-clicking changes targets.  Otherwise
    you drag the mouse left or right to move in either direction [which is the
    WORST part of these controls in actual practice].
    
    The boss has four possible attacks that he can use on you during this battle.
    The first involves firing a spray of shots from either of his two miniguns and
    is dodged fairly easily by moving out of the way as you see the shots.  All the
    same you should shoot these miniguns and get rid of them as early as possible
    in the battle.
    
    The next attack involves raining energy from the boss's shoulders down on you.
    Although this attack is a little faster and the shots tend to bend towards you
    it can still be dodged pretty easily.
    
    The boss's next attack involves him charging up a beam and firing it straight
    at you.  This beam can deal a lot of damage to you [about 50%] and should be
    avoided as soon as you see the boss charging up.
    
    The final attack is less direct, but the boss raises a green shield that will
    damage you if you touch it.  Simply move around it and fire at the boss some
    more.
    
    
    Once you have taken out the two miniguns you want to fire at the upper target
    between the boss's shoulders.  After this is destroyed you can focus on the
    middle target where the boss charges his strong beam attack.  Finally, once all
    these targets are gone you can aim at the blue target on the lower section of
    the boss to destroy him.
    
    Watch your energy during the battle [especially during the strong beam attack]
    and don't be afraid to use a medkit [you have 5 of them] from your menu [F1] to
    heal yourself.  If you really want to be sneaky about it you can also lose the
    battle and continue to start with full health [if you had low health at the
    start of the fight].
    
    
    After the battle a cutscene plays and you are given the choice to save the game
    [which I recommend doing] before starting the next chapter.

    =========
    
    Watch the cutscene and choose the third menu option to save your game, then
    choose the fourth option.  After this cutscene you can save your game once
    more, then watch another cutscene.
    
    
    ====
    Base
    ====
    
    Walk to the door ahead of you and crouch as you destroy a pair of turrets, then
    watch the moving red spotlights.  You cannot get caught in these spotlights or
    you will die.
    
    The first spotlight moves left to right, so destroy the turret to your left as
    it moves right.  Return to the first hallway and wait for the spotlight to pass
    left of you, then go right down the hall.  Destroy any bees in your way and
    hide in the alcove ahead of you.  Wait for BOTH spotlights to go down the hall
    towards the turret that you destroyed earlier, then follow the new path and
    kill a bee generator.  You're done in this room so head through the door ahead
    of you to reach the next one.
    
    
    Crouch as you destroy another pair of turrets, then enter the door up ahead.
    
    
    Be careful of the spotlight as you destroy two turrets to your right, then
    return to the hall before the fork.  Wait until the spotlight is on your
    right, then run left down the hall to an alcove.  Watch the nearby faster
    spotlight and follow it as you hide in another alcove to your right.  Wait
    until the fast spotlight passes behind you before running to the next alcove on
    your left.  Destroy a bee generator here and duck under some beams, then
    approach the turrets up ahead.  Dodge the beams and destroy some bees along the
    way, then watch out for another spotlight before you get rid of the turrets.
    Get in front of this spotlight now and head through the next door.
    
    
    Head for the left wall and hug it as you pass a fast spotlight, a slow one and
    another fast one.  Stay by this wall now as you follow a spotlight in the next
    group that's moving clockwise.  Once past this group you should destroy the bee
    generator on your right, then enter the door to start a cutscene.
    
    
    =========
    Countdown
    =========
    
    After the cutscene a three minute timer begins, the ground also shakes every so
    often and forces you to your knees.  Hit the crouch button when this happens to
    get up as fast as possible, otherwise go right for now.  When you reach a
    locked door you get a message, quickly backtrack and head left this time to
    find a button.  Hit the button to open the door, then go and rush through the
    door.
    
    Destroy a pair of turrets on your right and ignore the button on your left.
    Go left past the turrets instead and destroy a bee generator and two
    more turrets as you follow the passage.  Hit a button beyond the turrets and
    rush down the hall, then go left past some moving doors.
    
    Destroy a bee generator on your left and carefully hit the button there while
    crouching under beams.  Turn around and destroy the turrets, then go through
    the door to your left to end the chapter [don't forget to save when asked].

    Watch the cutscene and use the third menu option to save afterwards, then
    choose the fourth menu option to start another cutscene.
    
    
    ========
    Swimming
    ========
    
    Move the mouse to move your character away from the mines, otherwise use any O2
    tanks from your menu if you start to run low.  The mines start to hiss when
    they're about to explode so use that as a final warning when you're avoiding
    them.  The hardest part of this section has three mines very close together
    moving vertically.  I got past them by swimming to the top right corner, but I
    took some damage in the process.  Either way a cutscene plays shortly after
    you pass this point.
    
    
    =============
    Undersea Base
    =============
    
    Destroy a bee generator on the left wall and any remaining bees, then head
    through the door up ahead to start a cutscene.
    
    After the cutscene you should head through the next door to start another
    cutscene, followed by a boss battle.
    
    
    ====================
    Boss - Tentacle Worm
    ====================
    
    This boss only has two attacks to fight you with, so he's actually easier than
    the previous boss.  The first attack is a wave of bubbles that are slow moving
    and are easily dodged if you wait on one side of the room, then slowly move
    towards the other as he releases them.
    
    The second attack involves twin beams from his antennae and is a little
    stronger and faster.  The basic idea is the same though, simply move left or
    right and dodge accordingly.
    
    When you attack, you'll want to focus on the antennae and a middle target
    between them first of all.  Once these three targets are destroyed you should
    destroy the boss's mouth followed by the final target on his body.
    
    
    After the battle a cutscene plays and you are given the choice to save the game
    [which I recommend doing] before starting the next chapter.

                                   (D-04) CHAPTER 04
    ###############################################################################
    
    =========
    Team Ship
    =========
    
    Watch the cutscene and use the third menu option to save afterwards, then
    choose the fourth menu option to start another cutscene.
    
    
    ========
    Swimming
    ========
    
    You will likely use an O2 tank in this section.
    
    Swim to the white floating puzzle piece on the ground ahead of you.  Skip the
    message and check the locked door to your right, then turn around and head
    through an open doorway on the other side of the room.  Follow the passage
    until it ends, then swim to the plaque on the right wall to learn that it's
    missing four pieces.
    
    Pick up the first piece just behind you, then swim back through the passage to
    grab the second piece that you saw earlier.  Swim into the small passage where
    you started this area to find the third piece.  Swim out of this passage and
    head right into a similar passage.  Take the fourth piece here and MAKE SURE
    that you don't follow the passage to the dead-end.  If you do this you will be
    buried under rocks and killed.  Swim to the plaque instead and either backtrack
    the way you came, or follow the new passage ahead of you.  Either way you'll
    reach the open room from the beginning, so head for the door that was locked
    earlier to start a cutscene.
    
    
    ===============
    Underwater Exit
    ===============
    
    Simply turn left and swim to the door where you started the previous section to
    start a cutscene.
    
    
    =====
    Hurry
    =====
    
    You will likely use an O2 tank in this section.
    
    In this section you automatically swim forward like when you were dodging mines
    earlier.  All you need to do is look for the hole in each fence and move to it
    as fast as possible so you can get through.  There are two set of fences to get
    through, then a cutscene starts.
    
    
    =========
    Team Ship
    =========
    
    Ride the elevator on your left to reach the second floor, then destroy a bee
    generator and enter the door up ahead to start a cutscene.
    
    Ride the elevator up once more, then go through the door to your right to start
    a cutscene and a boss battle.
    
    
    ==================
    Boss - Flying Mech
    ==================
    
    This boss is pretty similar to the others that you have fought so far.  His
    first attack is just a slow moving spread of shots that is fairly easily
    avoided.
    
    The second attack involves raining down shots from shoulder-mounted launchers
    and is slightly faster, but still pretty easy to sidestep.
    
    A damaging shield is sometimes generated much like the one that the first boss
    used.
    
    Finally a fast strong shot is used rarely, but try to keep an eye out for it.
    
    Otherwise you want to attack the boss's shoulder targets first, then once more
    for a second pair of targets.  Next you attack a middle target before
    destroying the final target and ending the battle.
    
    
    After the battle a cutscene plays and you are given the choice to save the game
    [which I recommend doing] before starting the next chapter.

    Watch the cutscene and use the third menu option to save afterwards, then
    choose the fourth menu option to start another cutscene.
    
    
    ========
    Crawling
    ========
    
    Head left at the first fork and carefully [if you touch a laser you die] crawl
    past the lasers when they disappear.  Hide in a pair of alcoves as you work
    your way past the moving lasers up ahead.  In a nearby tunnel is a set of
    lasers that don't move and don't disappear either.  Crawl to them to see a
    message, then crawl to the switchbox beyond the moving laser from earlier to
    deactivate the lasers that are blocking your path.
    
    Crawl through this passage until you reach another set of lasers that are
    blocking you, then use another switchbox nearby to deactivate them.  Finally
    crawl through this last section of the passage to start a cutscene.
    
    
    After the cutscene plays you are given the choice to save the game [which I
    recommend doing] before starting the next chapter.

    Not a whole lot to this chapter really, simply take the elevator up and enter
    the door up ahead.  This starts a long cutscene and ends the chapter
    afterwards.

    Palace
    ======
    
    Go down the hall and head left, then destroy a bee generator and go through the
    door beside it.
    
    Destroy a bee generator on your right, then head left to reach a plaque.
    Return to the previous room once you've read the plaque and approach the other
    two doors here, as well as the piano.
    
    Return to the plaque once more and return to the piano again.  Approach the
    piano to get a close-up of the keys.
    
    
    If you think of the seven keys as being numbered 1-7 from left to right, then
    you would play them in this order:
    3,6,7,6,2,7,2,5.
    
    A short message appears and you can now enter the door on the right side of
    this room, so go there now and destroy a bee generator before you go through
    the door.
    
    
    Destroy another bee generator to your left once you're through the door, then
    head right to read another plaque.
    
    
    Return to the piano in the previous room once more and play the seven notes in
    the following order (assuming that they are numbered in the same way):
    5,7,7,7,5,6,2,1.
    
    
    Now save your game and head through the door behind you to start a cutscene and
    a boss battle.
    
    
    =====================
    Boss - Armoured Beast
    =====================
    
    [Try losing this battle to see a different cutscene, then reload your last
    save.]
    
    
    This boss is pretty similar to the others that you have fought so far.  His
    first attack is just a slow moving spread of shots that is fairly easily
    avoided.
    
    The second attack involves raining down similar shots from shoulder-mounted
    launchers and is slightly faster, but still pretty easy to sidestep.
    
    A damaging shield is sometimes generated much like the one that the first boss
    used.
    
    Finally strong shot is used from both shoulder launchers and drains about 90%
    of your health if it hits you.  It's very hard to avoid (maybe impossible), so
    watch your health and definitely heal if you need to.
    
    Due to the attack mentioned above being so very strong, you want to attack the
    targets on the boss's shoulders as FAST as possible.  Once these are gone you
    can focus on the mouth target and the necklace target.  Finally shoot the boss
    in the heart until he dies and starts a short cutscene.
    
    
    ======
    Palace
    ======
    
    Work your way to the door ahead of you for a short message, the machine in here
    starts spinning and spitting out coloured balls.  Grab a white balls and notice
    that you see an icon appear in the top left corner of the screen.  Collect the
    next balls in this order (after the first white ball):
    Red, red, green, yellow, white, blue, blue.
    
    The machine stops at this point and you can enter the next door to start a
    series of cutscenes.
    
    Once the scenes are over simply walk through the door ahead of you to view the
    final cutscenes and the credits.

    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:
