     Any RPGer who's played an SNES game can sightread these controls, but for
     those a little uninitiated, battling is simple.
    
     - Enemies appear on the map, i.e. there are no random encounters
     - Battling is Speed-based; this determines the turns for both foes/allies
     - Targets can be selected with the arrow pad
     - The current ally whose turn it is has certain abilities that require either
       a button to be pressed, held and released, or used in conjunction with the
       arrow pads (such as Barkley's Fadeaway Jumper). 
    
     Enemies simply use their skills. There is a command menu for each character
     that looks like this:
    
               |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|            Each character has differing skills and a
               | SPECL |            special option. For the latter, Hoopz can
               |       |            evade the next attack in full whenever that
      |ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|    occurs, while Cyberdwarf can take damage for
      | SKILLS | ATTCK | ITEMS |    his allies with a 33% damage reduction. Items,
      |________|_______|_______|    Attack, and Flee options appear on everyone's
               |       |            starting grid and have same functionality.
               | FLEE? |

     shown by pressing the Cancel button.

     Many enemies have status abnormalities to inflict on the ballers. These are

     CHARLES BARKLEY
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Sir Charles...The Round Mound of Rebound...he's been called many things, and
     revered by many...but those days are past. It's slowly revealed why his post-
     -apocalyptic life is bitter and why the future is so empty and bleak. He's
     pretty well-rounded and has a high Attack stat.
    
     LV00 - Doubleteam -------> Multi-attack phys damage on one target [10BP]
     LV02 - Showboat Jam -----> Gain random stat bonus; damages target [20BP]
     LV04 - Vampslam ---------> Damages enemy, healing Barkley by amnt [10BP]
     LV?? - Holy Jam ---------> Dikembe Mutumbo's forbidden jam......! [35BP]
     LV?? - Ghost Muscle -----> Raises Barkley's Power and Brain stats [05BP]
    
    BALTHIOS
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     The octaroon great grandson of the famous b-baller Lebron James, Balthios is
     one of the last living zaubermancers. He, Charles, and Hoopz are close, and
     he is very bright. His gray hair is freaky but no one really mentions this
     fact. His Guard stat sucks for quite a long time despite equipment-boosting,
     but this changes later. His stat-down skills are great.
    
     LV00 - Fire Zauber ------> Lowers enemy's Attack [5BP]
     LV00 - Ice Zauber -------> Heavy damage to enemy [20BP]
     LV03 - Water Zauber -----> Inflicts Diabetes & Glaucoma on enemies [10BP]
     LV03 - Wind Zauber ------> 2-hit damage on all enemies [25BP]
     LV04 - Thunder Zauber ---> Damages one foe repeatedly [25BP]
     LV05 - Muscle Zauber ----> Lowers multiple stats on single enemy [20BP]
     LV?? - Snail Zauber -----> May heavily decrease speed on one foe [10BP]
    
    CYBERDWARF
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Once a proud dwarf, after an accident he had no choice but to get skin grafts
     made of b-ball leather. Mostly hideous but still kind-hearted, he agrees to
     help Barkley on his quest. Oh, and he likes applebottoms.
    
     LV00 - Insulin Shot -----> Heals + immunizes target of Diabetes [05BP]
     LV00 - Dwarven Touch ----> Raises random stat + Heals ally VP 50% [10BP]
     LV00 - Dwarf Knowledge --> Fully heals ally's VP, refreshes status [15BP]
     LV05 - Glaucoma Prayer --> Heals Glaucoma on all allies [05BP]
     LV06 - Dwarf Caress -----> Restores 66% of max VP on all allies [20BP]
     LV?? - Chaff Grenade ----> Phys damage to enemy + Lowers Guard  [10BP]
    
    HOOPZ
    ŻŻŻŻŻ
     Son of Sir Charles, and a b-ball up-and-comer, Hoopz is how all good kids
     should act: respect their parents, not be blabbermouths, and be helpful. The
     young master has little VP in battle but is very fast, which makes up for
     it. Did I mention he's....A ZOMBIE? No? Good, because he's not.
    
     LV00 - Gun's Slay -------> Physical damage on enemy [10BP]
     LV00 - Bulletdance ------> Physical damage on enemies [10BP]
     LV10 - Status Shot ------> Inflicts Diabetes on enemy [10BP]
     LV06 - TrickGun Assault -> Heavy phys-damg to enemy [30BP]

     |  _              |  After what may be the most dramatic acting in video game
     | |_| Ecto Cooler |  history, the scene is set for Barkley to go out and get
     |_________________|  his medicine. Search the oven for a [ECTO COOLER] and
                          put on your overcoat (figuratively) to leave. Talk with
     Gus in the foyer to learn the harrowing past about Inspector Jordan.

     myself...
    
     Down the (left) block is the Church of Clispaeth. The priest here is...Larry
     Bird, ex-star of the Boston Celtics. But those days're past now... Reminisce
     for awhile, give the kid standing outside the church 1 neo-shekel, and head
     back towards the apartment. Save first and head on up. [NOTE: If you do not
     give the kid a neo-shekel, it adds a "Deathtemple Point" to an invisible
     counter.]
    
     After a quick snooze, Jordan will enter and arrest Sir Charles for allegedly
     causing the latest Chaos Dunk. In order to escape their clutches, press the
     combination of keys/direction to get out of the apartment. Once on the foyer,
     quickly press the next one to avoid falling off the balcony and being caught.
     Barkley is captured after failing the input twice; don't worry, this can be
     redone from the start should this happen! There's a similar scenario on the
     NNY street involving the arrow keys.
    
     In the downtown area, some soldiers will catch Charles. A kid will run over
     and steal a "vintage" weapon from the captain, allowing Charles to escape a
     bit easier into the side-alley. A shadowy figure will subsequently help
     Charles escape...

     Save at the mouthy gas pump and continue east, ignoring the northern exit.
     At the 4-way junction, head south and continue straight west until finding an
     altar where a replica of the Space Jam ball is enshrined, along with the tomb
     of Muggsy Bogues and Patrick Ewing. Inspect the altar for a [BBALL SHARD] and
     both sarcophagi for a [BBALL TEAR]. R.I.P. you guys. ;__;
    
     Exit south until Hellbane warns about unstable footing. Walk (don't run) over
     the mesh floor to avoid a long fall to yer death. Continue along to the pool
     that commemorates greats like Shaq and Hakeem, and grab the [JACKET] and the
     [VOLLEYBALL] out of the odd-looking wall compartments. Continue along to find
     a healing b-ball statue. Further along is a...boss! OMG
    
     BOSS: Dread Ref   HP: ~300  EXP: 104   NS: 90
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     This boss is actually quite easy, as long as y'healed beforehand. Use Forward
     Jumper [or any other easy-to-use high-damage skill] and Hellbane's best skill
     to deal a lot of damage from the get-go. The "Knife Boot Face Gash" skill can
     inflict much pain on its target and it hits multiple times (but misses a lot
     of the strikes). Should you be rather unlucky, however, get those Ecto Cooler
     straws out and drink up!
    
     ---
    
     Heal up again and continue north to a screen with another save. A vending
     machine is nearby if you need to buy items, and there are some new stuff to
     get as well! Steal the [BAPES] from the wall hole and hang a left after y'
     save. A wall hole here has a [JACKET] -- which should be put on Hellbane at
     once -- and two southward-leading tunnels. Go down the left one to find a...
     TILE SHIFTING PUZZLE? OH MY GOD I HATE THESE! However, if you can succeed at
     doing it (all but upper-left corner must be correct), a [GATORADE GUM]'s put
     in your inventory! GZ, one of the creators, has supplied the tile solution!:
    
     R > R > D > L > L > D > R > R > U > U > L > L 
    
     Obviously, the letters stand for Right, Down, Left, and Up... I hope...
     The right-hand tunnel parallel to the tile puzzle contains a [CHICKEN DEW]
     duo, so make sure to snatch those puppies up!
    
     Finally, return to the vending machine area and go north to Lebron James'
     tomb. Before fading, he beseeches them to find the "Cyberdwarf," whatever
     that is. Another boss fight!
    
     BOSS: BBall Monster   HP: ~1000  EXP: 584   NS: 230
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     It's "BBall Twister" attack does medium-damage (~60), and it can't be hit if
     it uses "Mega Jump". If this happens, have Barkley defend for his 66% guard
     bonus and have Balthios pick his counterattack command, so he can avenge the
     ~150-dmg strike and cut this freak down to size. Barkley should use his Jam
     abilities (and then Forward Jumper, etc.), while Balthios takes care of the
     fiend with Fire/Ice Zauber, which should help reduce the amount of dmg he'll
     incur from its powerful physical attacks. "Juke Spinner" has 9 random hits
     to the party, and can be annoying if Monster's power hasn't been decreased!
    
     A [B-BALL] is collected after the foe's defeat. End of dungeon!

     After gaining entrance past "Eric Barber" the Vulturefreak, talk with the
     snail to gain the [POEM] for his kitsune lover. After opening it, all allies
     present determine the poem completely sucks, and the option to rewrite it is
     given -- choose to do so. Talk with the kitsune (fox) -- AFTER SAVING -- to
     learn about her likes and dislikes. She likes...animals, and that's about all
     the useful information y'get.
    
     Balthios will rewrite the crappy prose and will need some input. If you want
     a smashing success of a poem, answer:
    
     - enjoys hunting small prey
     - does not mind animal feces much
     - and her friends in Cesspool X
    
     The default reward if you don't rewrite the poem is 600 NS; if she hates the
     poem, it's 400 NS. If you pick all of Vince's stupid suggestions, where he's
     surprisingly CORRECT even though there's no flow, the two lovebirds leave and
     leave behind a [SNAIL ZAUBER]. This is a skill for Balthios, true, but there
     is a weapon of the same name left behind! Equip it for a great Guard boost!
    
     As for new items, the following can be bought. Everyone should have a nice
     time upgrading here, particularly Balthios and Vincebot who get slammed in
     battle defense-wise. [Armor shop is located near where Kitsune was standing].
     The item shop is the northeastern most shop in town, and the 'norm' inn is
     by the NPC Chip.

     Hey, he looks like Kobe Bryant! Haha...  He's basically the same fighter, but
     with souped-up power. Balla Dash is still present, so if you want an easier
     time, use Snail Zauber (Speed -12!?) & Fire Zauber to debuff him. Barkley can
     use his jamz and slamz while Eye Laser and the punch/kick combos round out
     the other turns. Also watch out for the "beatdown" attack where Dikembe puts
     some merciless hurt on a single target w/ a multistrike tech. He can recover
     about 600 HP after a time, by using "Devolve" however (which prevents him
     from attacking for a while), so this may take longer than normal.

     A [FEMUR] is received after winning. Barkley will also learn "Holy Dunk" as
     a way to carry on the soul brother's legacy. But what do we do with this

     Use Snail/Fire Zauber at the start to give a slight edge. Jordan can "Defy
     Clispaeth" to raise his guard somewhat, but his HP isn't that high, so it's
     a wasted turn, pretty much. Vinceborg, expectedly, has a laser shot that can
     do multiple damage to everyone (Jordan has Hurricane Shot which works to the
     same effect). Our cyborg can also use "Recharge" to heal 239 damage, though,
     so watch out.

     After stocking up on items, try to exit town and a [TURKEY FEATHER] present
     will be given by one of the freaky denizens. Save, head north, hang a right.
    
     ---
    
     This next area is sorta confusing, but it's just one screen. A [FACEMASK]
     chest is at the top of the screen (from entrance: west to 1st north path).
     Put it on Balthios so his Guard stat isn't a complete pile. In the SW corner
     of the room is a ladder leading up to a [CHICKEN DEW]. A note from Allard is
     on the floor; y'may wanna read it... In the SE corner, the ladder leads down
     to some pushers who y'can get items (already available) from. A guy charges
     $5000 to go down a ladder here...if you can't afford it, it doesn't matter.
     The real way to find the Spalding Building is through the DOOR in the above
     room, which leads to more ladders. It spits everyone out near a save pump &
     vendor, and from there...
    
     ...huh, it's a clinic? Lame. Talk with the suits here to learn that Dr. Allard
     does "full conversions" for idiots who want to look like animals and animated
     goofballs. There are three options to do here:
    
     #1 - Pay toll
    
          If you're stupid, this is the path you take. Why spend $5000 when you
          don't have to? I mean, c'mon... >__>
    
     #2 - Rough up the guards
    
          "Bust into his office" and fight the two guards; it's the exact same way
          as the #3 path after that. Alternately, you can go to the guards at the
          barred gate and beat up that Bodyguard. The single guard downstairs is a
          bit harder apparently, so inflict Diabetes to make up for the times when
          attacks miss.
    
     #3 - Find Rufus
    
          First, y'must have read the note in the SW corner to learn about "Rufus".
          Talk to a suit in front of Allard's office door to learn Rufus has been
          put on tunnel duty. Anyway, Rufus is the suit in the downstairs tunnel
          right outside the savepoint. Return to the office guards, speak Rufus's
          password, and enter inside. The bodyguard will attack (HP: ~600), but he
          ain't nothin' special. [650 EXP, 4NS]. The doc is up next.

          His "Faulty Plague Vaccine" can inflict brain-down, Handicapable, and
          apx 130 damage. "Heart Stab" inflicts heavy damage on one target, while
          "Dirty Needles" is a pretty crappy multi-attack on everyone. Use Forward
          Jumper, Fire [etc.] Zauber, and Dwarf's punches to inflict the most dmg
          on this scoundrel.
    
     No matter which way is taken, y'have to enter the SE ladder downstairs. Our
     friend Balthios says to prepare before going; this is because once y'go down
     there isn't an easy way back. PREPARE FIRST! [The input for falling down is
     always "Up" multiple times.]

     After meeting Juwanna Mann, she suggests finding the hunter nearby who is an
     expert on killing monsters... To get to the Spalding Building, the Ghost Dad
     must be slain! Next door to her house is Wildman's, and if Barkley does not
     apologize, it adds a "Deathtemple Point".
    
     Hang a left to find the downtown area, where a savepoint is. A husk of a
     building contains an inn (35NS) and the other has some denizens. One asks
     Barkley to retreive a 'F.I.N.A.L. G.U.N.' inside the Spalding Building for
     him. If you want to make some cash, you can roll the "Bones" with a gambler
     bum in this building. The rules are easy (each player rolls, highest combined
     total wins, same number doubles total) but the guy doesn't have any cash, so
     it's a waste of time... =/  DO NOT PLAY HIM AND RESET, OR HE WILL TAKE ALL OF

     Oh no, Dr. Huxtable is raining terror on the city! Its "Ectoplasm" attack is
     quite powerful (~300dmg), so kick out the powerful jams (Holy Dunk for one)
     to counteract it. Have Hoopz act as item healer, and use Muscle Zauber to
     counterattact its +15 ATK raise it gets on occasion. "Spook" can inflict some
     damage and Glaucoma, so use Glaucoma Prayer/Tobacco to alleviate. Fog Breath
     can inflict speed-down on everyone, too, which is not a good situation to be
     in! Dwarf Caress is there for a reason -- use it. This will be a long battle
     no matter how y'play, so have ample items to get through this sucker. Perhaps
     the worst move is "Ghostly Curse," which randomly inflicts multiple statuses
     on each character.
    
     ---
    
     The fog lifts after Ghost Dad's demise. Afterward, sleep at the inn for no
     cost and Barkley will learn "Ghost Muscle" from the dearly departed! Exit
     west out of town and follow the wastegrounds' path to the Spalding Building.
     A suit outside will also want Barkley to claim the F.I.N.A.L. G.U.N. for his
     company Square-Enix-Goya, and will pay $2500 if the obligation is met.

     The first room contains some inactive lifts, a savepoint, and a vendor. At
     the fork, the only way to proceed is up the left door. Barkley suggests going
     through the cubicles to search for the keycard. Look for wastebaskets with a
     sparkly thing to find a [DWARFBANE] and [BBALL JUICE] item. The last room has
     a [RED KEYCARD] in plain site, luckily. Steal it, return to the savepoint,
     and active the red lift -- this opens the right-hand door up the hall.
    
     More cubicles! A [TIME ZAUBER] is in the first one's wastebasket, although it
     can't hold a candle to the Snail Zauber. Keep going east, watch the scene
     where Barkley "feels like something happened in a room," and enter the next
     verticle passage of cubicles. The sparkle-less wastebasket in this first area
     has the [F.I.N.A.L. G.U.N.] that the two collectors were looking for. Hoopz
     will be a murdering tool with this equipped, so do so. At the very northern
     room here is the [BLUE KEYCARD]. Return to the lifts and activate the blue
     lift, opening the middle door up the hall.

     | At this point, you can get your reward for the FINAL GUN. If you give the |

     "Low Blow" does wussy damage to a single target, but "Kamikaze Jam" is liable
     to kill the person it hits. Make sure to have some Steroids/Chicken Dew on-
     hand. "Illusion Shot" is random-target, multiattack damage (~60per). Use
     Barkley's best jams, Flame Zauber, Rapid Fire, and Cyberdwarf's punches to
     inflict most damage. Make sure Dwarf Caress can be used if needed, though.
     "Glory of BBall" will heal all Scott's status ailments and about 571 HP, too,
     which can needlessly prolong the battle...watch out. [You may want to inflict
     Diabetes/Glaucoma with Water Zauber on this end].

     The [PROTOTYPE B-BALL] is received for the hard work. Some things go awry,
     though, and back in town, it's time to continue (Hoopz isn't in the party
     for awhile). Exit south through the once-fog-ridden path to the Sunbaked

     "Lv2 Melf's Acid Arrow" can inflict Diabetes & damage, so make sure to use
     Insulin Shot to prevent it from happening again. "Gemstorm" can inflict 'bout
     200 to all allies, but as long as you use Dwarf Caress every 2-3 turns, it's
     nothing to worry about. "Gold Encrusted Pick Toss" follows a similar strat,
     but misses and does randomized-target damage. Barkley should stick with Ghost
     Muscle and Pass/Forward Jumper (after using his Jams, natch), while Cyber
     should be the main healer. Keep an eye on his BP so y'don't get caught 'tween
     a rock and a hard place.

     The sergeant will activate a bomb before dying, however. To escape the blast

     This next part is reminiscent of point-and-click adventures. Do thusly:
    
     - Take [TRIANGLE ROCK] from the NE part of the rubble (has a sparkle on it)
     - Visit Statue of Liberty in the north; try unsuccessfully to gain entrance
     - In rubble area, NW house will be accessible
    
     A man here named Rutherford says Yelmirb can cure the diabetes. The Palladium
     Orb Scepter is needed to gain access to his quarters, however. The cave south
     of the rubble, blocked by a boulder, contains that very item. Some fool named
     Jenkins is protecting it...
    
     - Take Pipe (unsuccessfully)
     - Ask Rutherford if the [PIPE] can be taken
     - Use Pipe & Triangle Rock on the boulder
    
     This allows entrance into Jenkins' cave. He says that Rutherford is trying to
     kill Yelmirb and he'll give the [ORB SCEPTER] over if Barkley slams him. Say
     y'will and return to "Raffleson's" house. Everyone will accidentally be 
     trapped in there, but the poison sugar gas mechanism stalls.
    
     - Examine the dresser and take a [ZAUBERMANCER GARB].
     - Examine clock to see time is 12:32
     - Examine work table and take [SCREWDRIVER]
     - Use desk (jimmies the lock) and get a [DESK KEY]
     - Examine bookcase to see that three books (#1-3) can't be removed
     - Pull books in this order: 1, 2, 3, 2. This opens a hidden bookshelf door.
     - Use Desk Key on the secret door.
    
     Everyone should be able to leave at this point.
    
     - Examine Cultist (Mack) at Statue of Liberty to learn some information
     - Talk with Mack about Das Fructose Ungeheuer by the stone slab (rubble area)
     
     Mack says the well has the entrance to where the Immaculate Rod lies. The
     going-away present of [750 NEO-SHEKELS] is also given! The [SUGAR COUNTER]
     will keep track of the sugar rates down there; more than 4.5 granules per
     square inch is fatal...
    
     Before leaving, find Jenkins' corpse and Cyberdwarf learns "Chaff Grenade"!

     The Sugar Counter will appear in the lower-left corner -- if it gets to 4.5,
     it's game over. The way to proceed through here is to WALK, not dash, because
     the player can react to the ticker easier (not to mention it stays virtually
     in the same spot when walking). Running'll just spontaneously sugarify you.
     Also, try to stay on the dirty path away from the "sugardrifts," for good
     measure.
    
     Luckily, the path is rather straightforward. A small cave-in will send a gust
     of sugar flying down the path; back up and let its flurry pass. Further on, a
     shadow will move across a bridge. Follow it until a white soda can (?) figure
     runs away. This time, take the long u-shaped path around instead of the quick
     way (unless you wanna dieeeeee).
    
     Keep going west until a sudden vision of sugar (LOL?) happens. A sugarfied
     body lies along the path here, but isn't that important. Further down, the
     Diabeastie is waiting...

     He ain't the diabeastie, but he's here...so let's kill 'im! "Greater Earth
     Spire" does about 300 to one target, and he can eat a hamburger to recover
     999 BP! "Summon Bee Swarm" does about 130/per hit on a target too. Reginald
     cannot be heavily damaged until the red aura around him dissipates; even then
     magical-type abilities and skills do pitiful damage. Stick with physical hits
     and strikes, while Cyberdwarf plays the role of item healer. "Chromatic Orb
     Lv119" inflicts multiple stat-down effects with a small 100-dmg tag; beware
     its use in the early going!

     The [IMMACULATE ROD] is received afterwards. However, upon approaching the
     Statue of Liberty, the real culprit appears...
    
     BOSS: Diabeastie  HP: ~1500  EXP: 4378  NS: 658
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     "Sugar Storm" is used to inflict all allies with Diabetes; use Insulin Shot
     to combat it. Inflict Glaucoma with Water Zauber, and use Muscle Zauber to
     neutralize some of its all-around effectiveness. "Glomp" is single-target
     damage (~200), while its got a three-strike physical attack (~100/per) that
     someone can suffer through. "Spontaneous Sugarfication" does about 5000dmg
     to a target, which is massive overkill -- still kinda funny. Revive that guy
     and continue with the normal slaughtering.
    
     ---
    
     It drops a [POLESHAFT] after it dissolves (pun?). A right nice fellow named
     Octavius Steambrast appears at this time, wanting the newly-acquired item.
     Tell him no, save/heal, and enter the statue. At the end, "Yelmirb" agrees to
     cure Hoopz' type 2 diabetes...but SUDDENLY OMG:
    
     BOSS: Vinceborg 2050  HP: ~2000  EXP: 4932  NS: 896
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Our good 'friend' is back. Use Muscle Zauber to reduce his effectiveness, for
     one...yeah, that's a good start. Vince now knows "Proximity Pass," which puts
     two mines on two different targets for about 150dmg. "Binary Shower" ups his
     stats somewhat, which should break even if you decreased a bunch. Oh, and he
     can heals 400HP & BP this time! Feeding Barkley BP+ items now and then, he
     just used Doubleteam the whole fight, while Cyberdwarf used Dwarf Caress and
     his powerful punches when needed. "Short Circuit" just downs a few stats and
     a waste of a turn, pretty much. He doesn't heal as much as some earlier foes
     though.
    
     ---
    
     Back in the subway station, Juwanna Man gives Barkley a [DIMENSION WHISTLE].
     She says manufactured jamicite might be in Cuchulainn's Tomb, and the rails
     can take 'em there. Before talking to the conductor and heading there, make
     sure to re-equip Hoopz with all his good stuff.

     Confirm the choices. Clearly favoring the Deurgars, Jamal Bloodguzzle will
     reward Barkley for helping his race with a [SHREKMONO] & [SHREKMONO PICCIE]!
     Also, talk to the once-potionless deurgar to get a [MYSTERIOUS POTION]!
    
     However, if you decide to be evil and favor the genies the whole way through
     (by selecting the LAST listed option each time), a [GENIE LAMP]! Also, the
     genie near the 2nd-screen entrance gives a [FALCON JOHDPURS] for favoring his
     race.
    
     It summons Kazaam (Shaq LOL) who will grand some wishes.

     Now, it's well and good to favor one side...but what happens if Barkley makes
     it a true compromise, being the deurgars are slightly favored on four options
     (Choice 2) and the genies are slightly favored on the other 4 (Choice 3)? It
     benefits nobody and there ain't any prizes! The best path, prize-wise, is the
     one that favors the deurgars, it seems.
    
     Anyway...now to Cuchulainn's Tomb!

      From the entrance, the maze splits into two alongside the main corridor. The
      green switch is the nearest "C" on the left side; the Blue is the NE crystal
      on the right side. Purple is the other right-side one, and Red is the NW on

           Our young master is stuck in a "neverending" puzzle. If he goes down
           the wrong path, it seems like he's stuck and has to do it over again!
           To solve, go the following path at the forks:

           You'll know you're doing it right because a tiny red eye will light up

      #4 - Barkley
    
           His #34 Jersey is nearby, and there are switches that control the floor

     Everyone meets up and enters the northernmost room. The [HELL B-BALL] gets
     equipped on Barkley, who goes off alone to rescue someone or something in
     the next corridor. The Shimmerglobe then challenges Barkley with the....

     Huh...? This crappy enemy from dungeons past? It uses "Parkinsons Chomp" and
     and a spinning damage move, but this stuff should barely do 100. Use a great
     Jam ability to finish this wussbag off.
    
     ---
    
     Afterwards, the final verboten jam "Double Dribble" is gained, as well as the
     [H/S BALL]. It's got lower attack (-10) than the Hell B-ball, but allows Sir
     Charles to dribble too balls at once...i.e., two attacks.

     where the item-seller is) and leave through the fence. However, in that

     "Blackout" will kill a randomized character, and "Mystic Eye Beam of Doom"
     is ripped straight from Vincebot's repertoire, damaging randomized targets
     for about 80/per. "Tongue Lash" inflicts multiple statuses on one character,
     so heal that crap away (or use Tobacco). "Head Bash" is a single-target dmg
     attack...yawn! Basically, to do the most damage, equip the H/S Ball, use the
     ever-useful Ghost Muscle, and Doubleteam this guy repeatedly. Muscle Zauber
     helps impair his stats a bit. Hoopz should use Gun Slay; barring that, he
     should relegate himself to item-healer (make sure to set his 100% dodge
     attack in place though). "Soul Consume" can heal the boss for about 380, so
     make sure to keep Doubleteam goin'! [PS: Darklord is immune to Glaucoma and
     Diabetes.]
    
     A [GOLDEN POTATO] can be recovered from where the boss died...get it! Using
     the thing will summon Hiratio to instantly kill any enemy in the game. It's
     consumable, though, so choose the timing wisely.

     Make sure the H/S Ball is equipped before coming into this battle. If you did
     the Chup Mines sidequest and got the Shrekmono, most of Jordan's attacks will
     be doing a lot less damage than one'd expect. Use Ghost Muscle + Doubleteam
     to expedite, and heal when needed (watch out for "H-H-Head Shot," which may
     be the best move ever invented...just see it). Still got "Defy Clispaeth,"
     although it won't do him much good here. Sucka MCs must diyeeeeeee~!

     Afterwards, if you try to leave, Cyberdwarf suggests using the Dimension
     Whistle Juwanna gave to the party.

     No, not Charles! Cyberdwarf is the one who hasn't felt a woman's touch in a
     long time. He only likes "applebottoms," apparently. The WNBA's Ivory Latta
     will be the only suitable match, apparently. They go into the backroom to get
     to know each other better. Choose the following replies in order to, uh, win
     this...uh, thing.
    
     • That's a pretty name, Ivory
     • What are some of your interests?
     • What books do you like?
     • I also read romance novels.
     • I think you doubt yourself.
     • I don't think so.
     • That...that was amazing.
    
     Latta should bring C'dwarf out into the fresh air (does that exist here??)
    
     • It's...beautiful.
     • What do you usually think about?
    
     They should kiss and Cyberdwarf should get the [TUPPERWARE ARMOR] and...also,
     an [IVORY'S BROMIDE].

     What may be the funniest take on Chocobo breeding, Barkley can raise his own
     pet b-ball. Barkley's old coach will help describe what each command does
     (feeding, watering, playing with b-ball). As far as I know, there's no real
     outcome to this besides wasting lots of money and getting the same note about
     "anything else?" :p

     Talk with Meadowlark Lemon to learn there's a tournament around, and the 
     winner gets a 1-of-a-kind prize! The reigning champ is Kevin Garnett and has
     never once been defeated. The arena's right near the pump, too. Register for
     the showdowns and talk with Garnett a little. Then, it's off to a Hellblazen
     Battlesquare for the matches!

     Oh, so Shrek's here? Any move can kill this sucker...his HP is horrible.

     Still pretty easy, but a step up in difficulty...slightly. Even at only Lv12
     Barkley will probably three times faster than this sucker. In fact, he will
     suicide himself with "Flamesplosion," probably in awe of Barkley's talented
     abilities. Make sure to heal your HP/BP before moving onto the champion...
    
     BOSS: Kevin Garnett  HP: ~1500  EXP: 355  NS: 71

     "Dipsy Doo Dunkaroo" can inflict damage and Guard -25 (!?), which should not
     matter too much -- Barkley is clearly faster and can sink his teeth in, even
     with simple Forward Jumpers. Watch out for the "Dojo Kick" which can do 200+,
     if it even comes to that.
    
     The final prize? A [MITHRIL JERSEY]!

     After leaving the B-Ball Dimension, it's back to the desolate court again...
     Head north from the arrival point and when you meet the "shadowy figure," the
     choice to join or refuse him comes up. Make sure to refuse or it's game over!
    
     BOSS: Shadow Barkley  HP: ~2000  EXP: 4  NS: 4
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Haha, by far one of the funniest boss sprites...eat it, FF7! "Plague Needle"
     will inflict Diabetes/Glaucoma on everyone. "Verboten Jam" will probably kill
     whoever it hits, even if you use multiple Muscle Zaubers. "Moon Regeneration"
     will refill HP (~560) and heal ailments; just recast 'em when this happens.
     "Shadow Lightning" deals about 100dmg/per hit in a scattershot fashion. "Dark
     Vortex" does about 200 to a single target...
    
     Use Insulin Shot when the time arises, and use Water Zauber to inflict both
     Glaucoma & Diabetes on the boss. Cyberdwarf should keep his BP up and Dwarf
     Caress when the hurt is put on. Sir Charles should just use Doubleteam every
     turn, while someone feeds him items. I mean, this is the last battle -- why
     save the inventory? Make sure to Ghost Muscle beforehand, and keep hitting
     it with Diabetes for an extra 147 or so damage per turn.
    
     But that ain't all!
    
     BOSS: T-Rex Barkley  HP: ~3000  EXP: 4  NS: 4
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Haha... "Chomp Chomp Yum Yum" drains as much damage as it inflicts, usually
     about 400. "Dinosaur Spit" heavily lowers the four main stats on a single
     character. "Doomfire Death" inflicts 9999dmg on two random targets...! "Tail
     Whip" hits thrice on one target and "Flamehell" does about 250-300 to all
     targets.
    
     This battle is most annoying because of the draining skill. Barkley should
     once again Ghost Muscle + Doubleteam, while Muscle/Flame Zauber is put into
     effect (Zeta Slash may help as well for reducing its turn rate). Cyberdwarf
     will find much use for his "Caress" ability, and young master Hoopz is mostly
     relegated to item-thrower due to his great speed. Hoopz should also use his
     100% Dodge ability, because this is a free evade that's stored for the next
     time he's attacked (even if he does things inbetween!). Snail Zauber will be
     of use, too, if you have it.

    [Q] - How do I save?
    [A] - Talk to the chatterbox gas pumps around the towns & dungeons
    
    [Q] - I can't figure out how to do this (Attack) skill right!
    [A] - Press left/right to see the base accuracy and method for performing it.
    
    [Q] - Hey, Cyberdwarf's finishers are raising the target's stats!!!!
    [A] - The version of the game yer playing is outdated. That has been fixed. :p
    
    [Q] - How do I get all the Library cards / Cuchulainn's Key?
    [A] - You don't. They don't exist. This is supposed to be an in-joke, I think,
          and has been debunked by the creators on a few sites.
    
    [Q] - In Necron 5, how do I open the door that needs the Cuchulainn's Tomb Key?
    [A] - The key doesn't seem to exist -- another joke at our expense. =(
    
    [Q] - What is Victorian Steampunk mode?
    [A] - The game takes a funny twist, with some characters being renamed, their
          portraits being changed (Hoopz now looks like a neathdrathal, for one),
          and there's a generally more "proper" feel to the people. The Ultimate
          Hellbane becomes "Supreme Cogblight," and there's other britishisms to
          find, haha. Nothing carries over (item, money, etc.) though.
    
    [Q] - I heard there's a "Hell" area in this game?
    [A] - Yes, there is...the Deathtemple. To gain access to it, y'must be a
          complete jerkwad all throughout the game. The noted instances are the
          following:
    
          - In Neo New York City, do not give kid by church any neo-shekels
          - In NNYC Sewers, do not give slacker outside of Allard's office any $$$
          - In Proto NNYC, do not apologize to Wildman (next door to Juwanna Mann)
          - Do not give the Poleshaft to Octavius Steambrast on Liberty Island
          - In the B-Ball Dimension, do not spot Dick Vitale any money
    
          Being nice to any of these five people prevents access to Hell. To get
          to that hot location, complete the requirements and die; instead of
          going to the game over screen, Barkley winds up there.
    
    [Q] - Who is Hiratio?
    [A] - He's in a series of potato games at gzstorm.com
