    Part 1 - The description
    ----------------------------
    
    Monkey Hero is a game for the Playstation. It is very similar to 'Zelda: Link to 
    the Past' for the SNES. Ok, you're a monkey, not a man, and everything is in 
    monkey terms. But there are many parallels. Hearts? Now they're peaches. Faries? 
    Now they're mushrooms. The list goes on. Let's just say there's a lot in common.
    
    Part 2 - The walkthrough
    -------------------------
    
    
    Woah, that was a wierd dream. And then you fell into a pit. Not your monkey day. 
    Start by picking up a box. (the circle button) Hurl it at the slug in the room 
    with you. That felt good, didn't it? Repeat with the slug in front of the door. 
    Then head up through the door. There's some boxes blocking the way. Pick up 
    those suckers and smash  them into the wall. Note the two barrels to the left. 
    Push on them, and they'll roll. If you push to the left, you can smush two slugs 
    into paste. Then, head out to the upper part of the room. Use the barrel there 
    to smush the slug up top. Then head east and through the door. In this room 
    you'll meet a monkey miner. Say hi to him (walk up  to him and press the circle 
    button). Then head north. 
    
    Ooo, your first treasure chest. You can't quite open it yet. Head up to the top 
    of the room. You'll find a switch. Press up against the top of it, and you'll 
    flip it on. Watch what it does to the top door. Pretty neat, huh? You can go 
    through it now. You'll see a smaller chest than the one before in this room. Go 
    up to it and press the circle button. Tahdah! It's a gold key. Remember that 
    keys come in boxes like this. You'll want to know it in the future. Head south 
    to the room with the big chest and open it up the same way you opened the little 
    one. It's...a stick? Well, a STAFF, to be more precise. Your first weapon! Swing 
    it with the X button, or hold down the circle button to charge with it.
    
    Head south through the door. The two big blocks will move aside, letting you go 
    southwards. Try out your new staff on the slug. Then head south through the 
    door. There's another two slugs here, and you can pop those too. Ignore the slug 
    in this room you can't reach. It's not important. Head west out the door.
    
    Wow, that's some strange black stuff, huh? It's this game's way of showing a 
    pit. In other words, don't try to step on it. Just keep heading west here. Climb 
    up and down the small sets of stairs and pop the slugs as you go. When all the 
    slugs are gone, a treasure chest will appear to the east of the stairs, 
    containing 20 coins. Once you've gotten it, head west out the door. 
    
    In this next room, you'll see a cart of gems moving back and forth across a pit 
    on a track. Wait until the cart is all the way to the right end of the track, 
    and then run across ahead of it. Once you're across, head south out the door, 
    and out of the cave.
    
    Part 2-1 - The Library
    -------------------------
    
    Talk to the old man outside the cave. He'll give you a MAGIC HEADBAND, so he can 
    talk with you, long distance. Head south on the stone road, through the giant 
    peaches. You'll meet your first slime here. It's green. It's jelled. It's 
    square. It's takes two hits to pop, but you can do it. Once the slime is dead, 
    talk to the soldier. You'll find out the NIGHTMARE KING has invaded the library! 
    Head south on the road to head towards the library. You'll soon see a mushroom 
    man between two blocks. Talk to him and he'll give you a mushroom, and show you 
    the way to the library. A mushroom is a very good thing. If you want, you can 
    keep it active by pressing L1. Now that you have a mushroom, if you lose all 
    your health, you'll be ressurected. Follow the mushroom man west to the library. 
    A nightmare will appear! Whack him good a few times with your staff. He'll pop, 
    and Mr. Mushroom will appear from behind a tree. If you like, you can laugh at 
    him for being a coward. Keep heading east and you'll reach the library. Go north 
    through the library entrance. 
    
    
    Eeek! There are slimes here. Push barrels onto them, or pop them with your 
    staff. Once they're gone, a librarian will appear. Reassure her, and then watch 
    as the bookcases spread wide. Head north on the path they've revealed.
    
    As soon as you enter this room, you'll see a slime to your right. But he's 
    behind a bookcase! Hmm, how to splat him? Press against that bookcase, and watch 
    it fall on him and turn him into soup. Repeat this on the north bookcase. It'll 
    fall and let you go northward. Press the circle button at the fountain for a 
    quick health boost, then head east.
    
    You'll come to a room with slimes, boxes, and bookcases. Pop the slimes, and 
    head east. Push over the eastern bookcase between the two pillars. Then push the 
    one right to the north of it, the horizontal one. Open the chest behind it for a 
    gold key. Then, head north and east. Push the switch and open the eastern door. 
    Then head through it.
    
    Kill all the slimes in this next room. A librarian will appear. Talk to her, and 
    then head through the south door. Make your way to the chest, and open it. It's 
    that map the librarian was talking about. When you're outside a building, you 
    can press the select button to see where you are. Head north, and talk to the 
    librarian. She'll open the north door for you. Go through that sucker.
    
    Hit the upper right switch in this room to open the north door. Head through it 
    and into a room of nightmares and slimes. Slaughter those guys, and hit the 
    switch in the eastern part of the room. It opens the east door, and gives you a 
    treasure chest with a silver key. Head east from here.
    
    In this room, pick up the box that pens in the nightmares. Throw it at them, and 
    then staff the rest. Use your silver key to go through the east door. Flick the 
    switches and shove the bookcases over on the badguys. A treasure chest will 
    appear containing a gold key. Head back west, and then north, to find a big box. 
    Open it with the gold key to get the SCROLL OF HOVERING. Now you can fly over 
    small gaps by holding down the X button, letting it charge until you see blue 
    sparks, and then releasing the X button. Practice by hovering over the two 
    slimes that appear in the ditch, then head south and east twice.
    
    You'll come to a room containing two purple mushrooms, with a ditch in the 
    middle. Dance around the purples for now. Use your new hover skill to hover over 
    the ditch, and head south. Kill the nightmares in this room by rolling barrels, 
    and head east.
    
    Kill the first nightmare in this room you come across. Then look to the north. 
    The path appears blocked, but it really isn't. Use your amazing monkey strength 
    to move the giant peach (press up against it). Kill the other nightmares and go 
    west. You'll find two sets of boxes. Pick up and smash the left hand pair, and 
    then hover over the ditch south. You'll find a switch. Hit it, and a treasure 
    chest will appear. Jump into the ditch and run up the stairs. Grab the 20 coins 
    in the chest, splat the slimes, and head east.
    
    In this room you'll see two giant peaches. Push the bottom one left and the top 
    one up. It'll open the west door, and give you a treasure chest with a silver 
    key. Use the silver key to go through the east door.
    
    Flick the switch you find in this room to open the north door. Head north, and 
    you'll see a familiar room. Hover north, grab the chest with the mushroom in it, 
    and hover back south and through the door you came in. Then head through the 
    south door of this room.
    
    Hover east over the pit in this room. Whack the slugs, and hover south. You'll 
    find a switch. Hit it, and grab the 5 coins in the treasure chest that appears. 
    Then head out the west door.
    
    In this next room, you'll see four giant peaches. Go to the southeast one, and 
    use the circle key to grab it. You can drag it over the red button in the 
    center. Once you've done that, the west door will open. Head through it. Pop the 
    nightmares in this next room, and push the peach aside. Grab the two chests 
    behind the giant peach. One contains a gold key, and the other has 10 coins. 
    Now, head east. Repeat the 'drag the giant peach' trick, and head east once 
    more. Then hover over the pit and go through the northeast door.
    
    Dodge the two mushrooms in here, and use the gold key you got to go through the 
    north door. Head for the second set of boxes you find on the right. Bust these 
    open and grab the BIG PEACH in the chest hiding behind. Now you'll have an extra 
    peach in your health! Then go through the north door. Bash the boxes here, and 
    hover west over two pits. Bash the box to the north, and go through the gap. 
    Hover east, flick the switch, and hover back. Go north through the newly opened 
    door.
    
    Pop the slimes, and step on the middle button in this room. Kill the two 
    nightmares that appear. Then push the giant peaches on to the two remaining 
    buttons to open the west door. Head through it. Kill everyone in this hallway 
    and keep heading west. In this next room, push the upper giant peach to the 
    west, to open the west door. Go through. Grab the mushroom in the treasure 
    chest, then step up to the magic book.
    
    Boss: NIGHTMARE KING
    Strategy: Whack him with your staff or the boxes when he's not inhaling. Pop the 
    slimes he spits. When the battle's over, grab the magic book, talk to the 
    librarian that appears, get the first book page and you'll be teleported 
    outside.
    
    Part 2-2 - The Secret Cave
    ---------------------------
    
    Go east away from the library. Talk to the monkey captain and agree to help him, 
    as long as you're there. Head back north to the cave area. You'll notice a 
    second entrance to the east. Head in there. Hover over the pits in this room, 
    dodging the mushroom. Go north through the hole in the wall. Kill the cavemen in 
    here. Ignore the crane, it's useless, and keep going north. You'll come to a 
    moving minecart. You want to get on top of it, using the ramp between the two 
    barrels. Ride it north, and get off at the end ramp. Go to the western pair of 
    barrels, stand between them,  and hover to the north.. Hover north again, and 
    you'll find a switch. Hit it, and then return to the start of the second mine 
    cart. You'll see a door heading south if you head west a bit. Go in that room 
    and grab the treasure chest. You've now got a gold key. Jump on the second cart 
    and ride it to the end. Go through the north door.
    
    Dodge the mine carts here, and stand on the track. Follow it around to the side, 
    and the hover onto the main platform. Grab the big chest. Now you've got a 
    massive HAMMER, perfect for poping those annoying purple mushroom men you 
    couldn't kill until now. Use L1 to make it active, and then press the square 
    button to pound that stake into the ground. Neat, huh? Now head back out of that 
    cave.
    
    Head south through the peaches, and then west to the dojo. Along the way, stand 
    in the wierd circle with the lightning bolt, and press the circle button to turn 
    it on. This is a warp point for later. Now talk to the old man and head through 
    the gate. Visit the second hut to the east and learn how to use firecrackers. 
    They're just like bombs in Zelda. First, hit L1 to make them active. Use the 
    square button to light one, pick it up with the circle button, and hurl it by 
    pressing the circle button again. Blow up the slimes to get your own personal 
    supply of firecrackers.
    
    Once you're done with the boom-booms, head towards where you came in. To the 
    west of there, pick up all the blue fruits. Once all four are gone, you can open 
    the chest to the north for 20 coins. Then, head out of the dojo. Head south from 
    here to the broken bridge. Hover south over the gap, and keep going south.
    
    You'll find you'll be at the beach. Watch out for the squeaky crabmen. Hit them 
    a few times and they'll pop. Head into the hut here. Talk to the girl and agree 
    to help her out. Then, head out the hut and to the south. You'll find the 
    beached ship. Head inside. Kill all the baddies, and make your way to the 
    treasure chest. You'll get a BIG PEACH, and find a map on the bottom. Head back 
    to the hut. The happy girl asks you to tell her sister. Head south and west to 
    find her hut. Tell her where the treasure is. Then go back to the first girl. 
    She'll give you a shiny new staff.
    
    Head back towards the second sister's hut and then head north. Pound the stakes, 
    head north, and go into the entrance of the ruins.
    
    Part 2-3 - The Ruins
    ----------------------
    
    Use your hammer to break the giant skulls, and head through the west door. Grab 
    the chest with 20 coins in it, and go North. Talk to the giant elephant head and 
    go through the east door. Grab the chest with the mushroom in it, and flick the 
    switch. Return to the elephant room, and head north. You can push on the strange 
    bamboo sticks in this room to turn them. Use your hammer to pound the stakes, 
    and grab the chest with the silver key. Kill the baddies that appear, and then 
    head back to the entrance area. This time go out the east door. Grab the 
    treasure chest with 10 coins in it on the way.
    
    Use the hammer in this room to make your way to the red buttons. Stand on both 
    of them and the middle path will open up. Head through the north door, using 
    your silver key. Kill the nightmares in this room, and make your way to the 
    ditch where there are blue slimes jumping in a circle. Chuck a dynamite down 
    there to kill them. Then drag the big block out of your way. Make your way 
    around the room to the switch. Hit it, and go through the north door.
    
    Hover over the pit in this room. Ignore the chest and the star platform to the 
    east. You can't get these until later. Pound the stake and hover southwest over 
    the pit. Pound the two stakes, push the bamboo, and get the treasure chest with 
    the silver key. Then head out the west door.
    
    There's a lot of doors here. Go south first, and kill all the nightmares in this 
    room. The doors will open, and you'll get a chest with a BIG PEACH. Then head 
    back north. Smash the big skull and climb the stairs. Hover on to the moving 
    star platform. Smash each stake as it goes around. When all four are smashed, go 
    through the northwest door. Make your way through the small stake-maze and hit 
    the switch. Grab the mushroom in the chest. Watch out for the hoppers that 
    appear. They're mean buggers. Go back to the room with a lot of doors, and head 
    for the southwest one. In this room, go to the ditch with the slimes. Flip the 
    switch, and hover north over the other ditch to get to the switch in the middle. 
    Then head west. Go down the stairs and you'll find two big blocks. Push them so 
    they line up with each other. Grab the gold key from the chest that appears and 
    head back to the room where you found the big peach. Go west from there. Watch 
    out for the hoppers, and make your way through the west door. Because you hit 
    the switch above earlier, the blocks in this room will move aside, and let you 
    make your way north.
    
    There are two passages that lead north in this room. Take the eastern one. 
    You'll come across your first warp pads. Step on the orange ones to warp to 
    another place. Repeat until you reach the silver key door. Then step on through 
    it. Don't be freaked by the big skull here. Take a quick detour northwards and 
    grab a treasure chest with 20 coins. Then take the south path to the big chest. 
    Open that puppy up, and you have the MEGA BRACELET. See that scary skull? You 
    can push it around like it was... well... something much lighter. Grab the chest 
    behind it for mushroom, then head back to the warp pads. Step on the orange one 
    and you'll go to a room with several of the big skulls. Kill the baddies, and 
    then push the skulls so they all fit into their little squares. Grab the 
    mushroom in the chest that shows up, and head north.
    
    In this room you have to hover on to the moving star platform. Watch out for the 
    buzzard. Wait until he dives to whack him with your staff. Push the skulls into 
    the squares again to make a gold key appear. Then push the skull away from the 
    door, head through it, and prepare to fight. 
    
    Boss fight: Boss Monk
    
    Start by making your way through the maze. If a fireball heads towards you, 
    whack it with your staff. When you get to the top, the fireflickers all merge 
    into one big boss. Use your staff to reflect back the green balls he throws at 
    you. Dodge the white ones. Once all the little monks are gone, he will start a 
    wierd green gas attack. Just stand still where the gap in the gas is, so you 
    won't get hit. Then whack the green balls. Repeat until he's toast. Grab the 
    book page, and you'll be teleported out.
    
    Go back to the Dojo area. See the stake in the ground? Pound that down. Head 
    east across the bridge. Ignore the big skull for now. Keep heading east, then 
    south, then east, north and east. You should reach a sign that reads "Pig pen 
    north", "Monkey village west", "Bamboo Grove South." Pound the stake between the 
    torches and then go north. Talk to the pig and agree to fight his pets. Whack 
    the guys that appear with your staff until they pop. Then talk to the pig again 
    to get 250 coins. Go back south to the sign, then south again. Head east in this 
    area until you find a sign that reads "Bamboo Grove". Go north through the 
    torches and talk to the gardener. Go through the maze and push the giant peaches 
    back into place. Use your hammer  to brake stones and kill baddies. 
    When you are done go back and talk to the guardian. He will move the giant peach 
    in the center of the maze and let you into the maze dungeon. 
    
    Part 2-4: The maze dungeon
    ----------------------------
    
    Talk to the mushroom man and use the Fire Crackers he gives you to blow open the 
    North wall. Kill the purple mushrooms with your hammer. Then head North. Don't 
    worry about the darkness in this room, just head straight north. Roll the barrel 
    to pop the slugs, and then go west. Watch for the nightmare in the dark, and go 
    south. Go west when you come out this door and go North through the door near 
    the one you came out of. Watch out for the mushrooms they shoot spines. Go east, 
    Roll the barrels and kill all the slugs. Get the silver key that appears and 
    head to the silver key door you saw on the way. Ignore the big chest in this 
    room and go to the far southeast part of the room. Blow open the crack in the 
    north wall with dynamite to get a DREAM CRYSTAL. Then head down the stairs. 
    
    See the hive-like thing in this room? Whack it with your staff. A firefly will 
    come out. These neat critters light the way for you. Up to two will come out of 
    each hive. Now that you've got light, hover over the ditch to the north, and go 
    out the North door. Kill the spine mushrooms in this room and go through the 
    north door. Kill the slugs in this room, and then break all the skulls. A 
    treasure chest will appear with a Gold key. Go back and use it on the big chest 
    you saw. 
    
    Yay, now you have the GOURD. You can use it to trap fireflies. Make it active 
    with the L1 button, and then use the square button to suck in the fireflies. Now 
    head back down the stairs again. Hit the hive, and trap a few fireflies in your 
    Gourd. Now head north. See the big snow globe like thing? When you have a 
    firefly in your GOURD go up to it and press the SQUARE button. It will light up 
    the globe and open up the West door. Head through it. Kill all the Purple 
    mushrooms in here for a Silver Key. Then use the Silver Key to go through the 
    Silver Key Door. use the crates in here too kill the mushrooms in the center. It 
    may help to release a Firefly to light the way. Grab the chest with the 20 coins 
    in it, and then and then head north. There is an arrow made of big skulls in 
    this room. Go east where the arrow points and follow the trail, hovering over 
    the gaps. Grab the two chests with 50 coins each and exit the way you came. Head 
    south through the door in the mushroom room. Release a Firefly in this room to 
    help you light the way. Kill all the mushrooms and go ut the east door. Refill 
    your Fireflies at the hive here. Head out the east door, grabbing the treasure 
    chest with the Silver key along the way. 
    
    In this room, pound the first two stakes you see. Flick the switch behind it. 
    Then climb the stairs, pound the stakes up there, and hover south to a treasure 
    chest with 20 coins in it. Head out the way you came in. Go through the south 
    silver key door.
    
    Release some Fireflies in this room to light your way and pound down all the 
    stakes near the right door. Then go through the South door. Put a firefly in the 
    globe here for a 50 coin treasure. Now head out the west door. Kill the 
    mushrooms with crates or dynamite. Go through the north door. Be sure to grab 
    some fireflies before you leave. In the room to the north put a firefly in the 
    globe to get a gold key. Then head back to the room where you pounded all the 
    stakes and go through the gold key door. Push barrels in this room to kill 
    Mushrooms. Use a Firefly in the globe to open the south door. Watch out for the 
    pits in this next room. If you kill all the slugs you'll get a BIG PEACH. Go out 
    the west door. Use a Firefly in this room to help you light your way across the 
    pit. Pound all the stakes to open the door. There's one on the left side one on 
    the right side and two in the middle. Then when the west door opens throw the 
    barrels in this room to kill the slugs and continue west. 
    
    Boss fight: Mushroom creature
    
    Strategy: Pound the stakes beneath the two read spots as he goes over them to 
    vent steam and cook his goose. Grab the storybook page and you're out of there.
    
    Exit the maze, and head east to the mushroom village. Visit the mushroom leader 
    in the first hut to get the MUSHROOM POUCH. Now you can hold up to three 
    mushrooms. Also visit the second hut for a BIG PEACH. The third hut to the south 
    has a mushroom man selling mushrooms. You can come back here to buy mushrooms if 
    you run out. Before you leave the village step on the stone with the lightning 
    bolt and press the circle button to activate it. Head back to the Library area. 
    You'll notice a big tree with stakes around it. Pound those stakes and enter the 
    hole in the tree. This is Monkey Village. 
    
    Head south to the town square. In the upper right you'll see a sign in front of 
    a hut that says "Spear Instruction". Go in the Hut to learn how to use spears. 
    Spears work like Firecrackers, but they fly straight and don't blow up walls. 
    Once you've learned how to use spears head into the hut on the upper left side 
    for a dream crystal. Once you have that, head one screen east. Enter into the 
    first hut and talk to the woman there. This is Ma Baker. She'll give you a PEACH 
    TIN. You can buy pieces of peach pie that refill small bits of health. Also talk 
    to the monkey Leutentant outside the hut. Before you leave the village activate 
    the Lightning Bolt Stone. 
    
    Go back to the Dojo. Pound the stakes near the entrance, and head to the sign 
    that reads "Historical Excavation". Step South to enter a secret cave. Hover 
    onto the platforms in the pit to find a man who will sell you a DRAGON BONE 
    STAFF for 500 Coins. Leave the dojo and go back to the big bridge. Right next to 
    the sign that says "Dream Shine- North" there is a big skull, pull the skull out 
    and head into the passage behind it. You'll find a strange gate with two firefly 
    globes. Put a Firefly in each globe to lower the gate. Step on the blue spiral 
    to enter the dream shrine. 
    
    Part 2-5: The Dream Shrine
    ----------------------------
    
    Head west from the spiral and stand between the two pillars on the west edge of 
    the cloud. Take a 'hover of faith' straight west. You'll land on another cloud. 
    Hover northwest from this one to land on a third. Hover north on a series of 
    clouds to find a treasure chest with a mushroom. Head back to that third cloud, 
    and then continue cloud-hopping east. One more hop north, and you'll find a pair 
    of peach trees. Head through them to get to the castle area.
    
    Head north into the castle, and kill all the nightmares in the first room. Go up 
    the the throne to find the dream king himself! Talk to him, and agree to help 
    him rid his castle of the nightmares. He'll follow you to release the gate 
    around the dungeon area. Keep him from being hit. If he's hit more than a few 
    times, he'll go back to his throne and you'll have go and get him again.
    
    Head into the lower west door of the throne room. You'll run into a foursome of 
    pikemen. As far as I know, there are no ways to kill these jerks. Just flee 
    north, up the stairs, as fast as you can. Then head east from that room into the 
    big hallway.
    
    Three of the rooms off the hallway have refills and goodies in them. You don't 
    need to go into them, but you will get mushrooms, pie bits, dynamite, etc, if 
    you need them. One of these rooms is the north door. You can make a detour if 
    you wish. Otherwise, head for the door just south of the door you entered 
    through.
    
    Hey, lookie down there! It's the throne room. You can go into the door to the 
    south for a quick bit of coinage, if you need it. If not, head for the east 
    door. You'll find yourself in the hallway again. The east and north door are 
    goodie rooms. Bop in again if you need a refill. Otherwise, follow the hall to 
    the north, then west, and go through the south door.
    
    Yipes, loads of pikemen. If you feel daring, you can flick the switches in this 
    room for 20 coins each. Otherwise, go through the south exit. Walk east up the 
    stairs to the roof. The king will lower the gate, and you can head on through to 
    the castle dungeon.
    
    Whack the nightmares in this first room and head through the south door. There 
    are three giant peaches in this room. Push them in the right order to open the 
    door. The correct order is lower peach, left peach, right peach. If you push the 
    wrong one, it will make a squeaky sound as you push it. Once the door is open, 
    head on east.
    
    Watch out for the cloud in this next room. You can't do anything against it yet. 
    Just head out the north door. Grab the silver key in this room. Then run south 
    into the cloud room. Head through the east door. Kill all the nightmares in this 
    room for a mushroom, and push the giant peaches in the center back into place 
    for some coins. Go through the north door. Grab the chest in here for some more 
    coins, while dodging more bolts. Then it's west and south, and back to the cloud 
    room. This time, go out the south door. Pick up the pots and grab the silver key 
    in here, while avoiding the cloud's thunderbolts. Head out the east door. Run 
    east again across the bridge. In this next room, splat to ground level and grab 
    the chest for some coins. Then climb the stairs north of the chest, and hover 
    west and south. Use a silver key to go through the silver key door. In this next 
    room, hover north, and use the second silver key to go through this silver key 
    door. Splat to the floor, and grab the treasure chest in the corner for a gold 
    key. Then head out the north door.
    
    There's a lot of stuff going on in this next room, but first thing's first - 
    head for the big chest. Climb the stairs in front and open that puppy up. You've 
    now got the SUPER GRAPPLE! You can use it with the square key to either hook on 
    to grapple-hooks, or to kill sky enemies. Get some practice stunning that evil 
    cloud that's been zapping at you for so long. Once you've had some revenge, 
    grapple up to the east door. Kill the nightmares in here for a silver key. Exit 
    the room, and grapple up by the north door. Before you go through it, hover 
    south for a treasure chest with some coins. Go through the north door, and drag 
    the giant peach in here to get to a chest with a mushroom. Go through the west 
    door and you'll come to a room made mostly of pit. Hover west, and use your 
    grapple to get up on the platform with the treasure chest. Open it up for a BIG 
    PEACH. Yum. Head back to the room that had the big chest. Then, grapple up to 
    the west door. Go on through, and grapple up to the divider in the middle of 
    this room. There are three stakes up here. Hit the top one, then the bottom one, 
    then the middle one, to open the doors. Go west. It's another big pit room. Use 
    your grapple to get to the treasure chest again. This time it's got a silver 
    key. Exit north through the silver key door. Grapple to the chest in here to get 
    a gold key. 
    
    Go back to the big chest room. Grapple to the north door. Go through, then east. 
    When you get to the platform that held the big peach, hover southwest. You'll 
    find a silver key door. Head on through. There are two peaches blocking your way 
    to the gold key door. Push the first one so you can get past, then push it back 
    into place. Then drag the second one into the left hand corner. Make your way to 
    the gold key door, and go through. Kill all the nightmares and head out the east 
    door. Kill the egg-dropping vulture with your grapple, and go through the south 
    door for some quick coinage. Head back north, and then out the east door.
    
    Use your grapple here to get on to the platform, and then ride the star platform 
    north. Get on the star platform in the next room. If you want some quick coins, 
    hover off to the east onto the second platform you see. Grab the chest, and then 
    hover back on to the star platform when it comes around again. Exit to the 
    north.
    
    Boss fight: Cloud Lord
    
    Strategy: Use the grapple to draw his hands towards you, and hit them with your 
    staff. Dodge the lightning he spews. When one hand is gone he will throw little 
    sparkly things on the ground. Dodge these and keep going with the grapple on his 
    hand. When both hands are gone he'll start spewing tornados. Dodge these and go 
    after him with your grapple. Aim for where he's going to be as he circles, and 
    you'll hit him more. When he's done for, grab the page, and you're out of there.
    
    Now would be a good time to go back to the mushroom village to get some more 
    shrooms. As long as you're there, why not stop and get the explosive spears? 
    Exit the village and head south. You'll come to a strange gate with two firefly 
    globes. Put fireflies in each of the globes to lower the gate. If you need spare 
    Fireflies there's a hive in a secret cave in the screen to the north underneath 
    a clump of four blue berries. Go in the gate to meet the weird inventor, who 
    will give you a set of five exploding spears. You can blow up a whole lotta 
    stuff with these babies. 
    
    Head back to the bridge. Head east, then north. Watch out for the invisible guys 
    in this area. Keep heading north until you find a sign that reads 'snowy pass'. 
    Then head north one more time. You'll find a small building. This is where the 
    undertaker lives. Talk to the guy, who begs you to help him out. Tell him you'll 
    save the day, and follow his directions to the mausoleum. You should find a sign 
    that reads 'Spooky Graveyard'. Head north here. Kill the ghouls who make weird 
    noises and go through the two strange statues. Go into the first small stone 
    structure you see that has a door open to the side. Grab the firefly in here. 
    You can also open the southeast coffin for a bonus mushroom. Then exit the 
    structure, and head west one screen. You can read some of the gravestones on the 
    way for a laugh. I like the one that says '1200 baud'. Anyway, in this next 
    area, head to the northwest, and you should find a sign. When you try to read 
    it, you won't be able to, unless you use firefly light. Release a firefly, and 
    read that sign. Wow. Bet you didn't expect that, huh? Go into the skull to enter 
    the mausoleum.
    
    Part 2-6: The Mausoleum
    -------------------------
    
    Hover north over the ditch in this first room, and go through the north door. 
    This room is dark, but if you head east, you can find a hive to brighten things 
    up a bit. Head out the north door. See the ghost in this room? You can't hurt 
    him yet. Just avoid him, and step on the star platform. If you want, you can 
    hover to the south off of it for some coins. Ride it east across the pit. See 
    the crack in the wall here? Behind the pots? Dodge the Ghost, and blow that 
    puppy up with dynamite. Avoid ghost number two, and grab some yummy coins. Then 
    head out the south door. Hover south over the pit, and then repeat over the next 
    pit. Go south out this first door. Kill the baddies in here, and use your 
    grapple to get up to the button. Step on it, and head out the west door. Pound 
    the stake in this room, and plop down to the lower level. Avoid the ghost, and 
    go through the west door. In this next room, kill all the baddies, and then 
    grapple up to grab the chest with the gold key. Leave this room and grapple back 
    up to the upper level. Go out the north door. Make your way north, splatting 
    eyeball goons along the way. Grab the treasure chest with the silver key, and 
    split out the door you came in. Head east, and north, until you're back to the 
    room with the pits. Hover north over the pit to where the three crates are, and 
    then southeast, and then northeast. You should be in the area to the right of 
    the three crates. One more hover north, and you can go through the silver key 
    door. Splat everyone in this room, using your grapple to get to the higher 
    slugs. Go out the southeast door. If you want to tangle with the ghost, there's 
    a mushroom in the chest you see in the ditch. If not, then head up the east 
    stairs.
    
    Watch out! There are falling floors in this room. Quickly make your way to the 
    orange warp pad, while dodging ghosts. Avoid the pikemen, and go through the 
    north door. Watch out again here! There's a big swinging sharp thing. Try not to 
    get hit by it, and head north again. You'll find a big chest, containing....
    
    The CANDLE! This is great. Not only can it light the way in dark places, but you 
    can use it to kill ghosts! Just select it with L1 and light it on a nearby torch 
    with the square button. Go up to a ghost, and fry his rear end. The candle has 
    some drawbacks, though. It goes out if you get hit, or if you run with it. Keep 
    that in mind. Light your candle on the torches in here, and head out the south 
    door. Kill the ghosts, if you feel like it, and light the burnt out torch to the 
    east. The door will open. Go on through. Hover over the two gaps in this room, 
    dodging pikemen. Step on the first orange warp pad. Open the second coffin in 
    the second row for some coins. Then step on the warp pad to the south. Go to the 
    second orange warp pad now. Follow the path around the edge of this room and 
    step on the orange pad. You should now be in a room with and orange pad, a blue 
    pad, and a swinging sharp thing. From the center of the grey squares, run 
    straight south, trying your darnedest not to get hit by the pendulum. I know it 
    looks like there's no path there, but there is one. Sadly, it's made of falling 
    blocks. But it's still a path. Go for it! If you fall, you can always take the 
    warp pads in a loop again. When you've made it, head out the south door. Kill 
    the eyeball guys in the little cul-de-sac, and take the west door. Use your 
    grapple to get up to the lit torch in this room. Light your candle, and hover 
    down to the ground. Don't worry, it won't go out. Light all the torches in the 
    room. Go through the north door first. Kill the critters in this room and open 
    all the coffins, and you'll get a mushroom. Go back south. Then take the door 
    west. Kill everything in this room, ghost included, for some coins. Then exit to 
    the south. If you want to, you can open up the second coffin in this room and 
    release a ghost. When you kill him, you get 20 coins. Step on the orange warp 
    pad. Then step on the next one. Light your candle on the torch here if you need 
    to, and head northward. Use the candle to burn down the spiderwebs blocking the 
    way. Go north, and hover over the pit to the orange warp. Burn through the webs 
    again, and step on the warp again. Through the webs once more, and on the warp 
    once more.
    
    Wow, a few choices here. Light all the torches first, for a gold key. Then step 
    on the lower right warp. Wait, don't step on the orange one in here. Instead, 
    head north and kill all the eyeball guys. You can use your candle to light the 
    way, although it's likely to end up being snuffed out. In any case, once you've 
    killed all the eyeballs, light the two torches by the north door with your 
    candle. It'll open. Go on through. Run through the pikemen in here to the north 
    door. Step on the star platform as it approaches. Light your candle on the 
    torches before you get on, if you need it. Light all the torches in the room. 
    Then grapple up to the platform to get a chest with 20 coins. Then head up the 
    stairs to the north. Open the chest here to get a BIG PEACH. Not very well 
    hidden, huh? No matter. Don't worry about the warps you can see below. You can't 
    fall into the ditches. Go to the north and step on the one warp pad at the top. 
    If you feel like it, fall in the pit here, slay the mushroom crawlies, and grab 
    the chest for 5 coins. Otherwise, just take the platform, then step on the warp 
    pad.
    
    It's pretty dark in this next room, so take your candle out. Make your way 
    westward, then step on the warp pad. Now, step on the left warp pad. Light the 
    torch in this next room for a chest containing 50 coins. Then step on the orange 
    pad. Now, step on the right pad. The star platform in this room doesn't go all 
    the way to the end, so you'll have to hover on to it. Watch for the ghosts, too. 
    Step on the second star platform. It doesn't go all the way to the end, either, 
    so you'll have to hover off it. Step on the orange warp pad. Then step on the 
    right warp pad. Take the right hand branch of this room, and grapple up on top. 
    Step on the orange pad up here. It's another one of those falling tile things, 
    so run quickly to the south. At least there's no sharp thing. Step on the warp 
    pad.
    
    There's some very strange beasts in here. They're kind of like flying ram-heads. 
    Throw some spears at them, and they'll pop. Don't miss the treasure chest in the 
    middle of the room. It has a mushroom in it. Watch out for some spear-guys at 
    the east end of the room. Step on the warp pad and get ready for a weird fight.
    
    Boss fight: Squeaky Voice/Ghost Rat Boss
    
    Eek, this is one weird-looking dude. Your job: Light the torches until you can 
    see the big white rat, then hit him with your staff. He charges at you faster 
    and faster as he takes more damage. He'll often overrun you, so use it to your 
    advantage. It seems like it takes forever and a half, but keep hitting him, and 
    he'll die in time. Grab the page and you're out of there. 
    
    Exit the graveyard area and go back to the man who asked you to kill the rat. 
    He'll give you a dream crystal for your trouble. Go back to the area in front of 
    the graveyard, and go south. Light your candle on the torch, and watch out for 
    buzzards. Go north, and light the torches in front of the statue. He'll give you 
    a BIG PEACH. Now, head east and north. You'll see a sign that says 'Dragon 
    Mountain' on the way. Talk to the soldier standing there, and then go into 
    dragon mountain. Head north up the stairs. Kill the dragon in this room with 
    your grapple, and head across the bridge, out the east stairs. Light your candle 
    on the torch in this room and then head up the many flights of stairs. Hover 
    your way across the last gap and go out the east stairs. Use your grapple to get 
    up a few platforms here. When you reach what seems like the end, hover south, 
    and you'll find more platforms. Eventually, you'll find a hole in the wall to 
    the south. Go through that. Walk along the edge of the mountain here to the 
    west. Enter the north door you find at the end. You'll find more stairs, gaps 
    and grapples. Make your way along until you get to the south door. Head on out. 
    Go west here, hovering from bit of bone to bit of bone. You'll find a hole to 
    the north. Go through. Walk along the platform here. If you have trouble making 
    it out, look for where there's no shiny bits in the black. It's safe to walk 
    there. Follow it south. Walk west under the ribs, and you'll find a big skull. 
    Step into the eye-hole.
    
    Part 2-7: Dragon Mountain
    ---------------------------
    
    Hover north across the gap in the walkway here, and go out the west door. Pound 
    the stake, and confront the spinning nightmares. These guys are a pain in the 
    rear. If all else fails, press them up against a wall so they can't walk away 
    when you try to hit them. When they're dead, push the switch, and light your 
    candle on the torch. Use the grapple to grapple up to the higher level, and 
    light the torches there. A chest will appear with a silver key. Use that to go 
    through the silver key door to the west. There's more spinning guys in here. 
    Whack them and go up down the stairs to the north. Is it me, or did it just get 
    zeldaesque in this room? Push the block down, and go out the west door. Kill the 
    slimes, and push the block on the left-hand button. Get your hammer out, smash 
    the skulls, and while you're at it, smash the mushroom men. They might just give 
    you mushrooms. Exit out the west door. Kill the slimes, but watch those barrels. 
    They've got TNT in them. Use your grapple and grapple up to the higher level. 
    Hover over to the switch and hit it. A treasure chest will appear with a 
    mushroom. Now, go back to the Zelda-copy room and push the block east. Go 
    through the south door. Kill the big-fisted men in here, if you feel like it. 
    Walk back out the way you came in. Push the block up, and go east this time. 
    Then go through the north door. Uhoh, pikemen! Scatter them with your staff, and 
    run through the south door. Dead end? Nope. Get out your grapple and grapple 
    your way on to the higher platforms. Hover over to the switch in the upper left 
    corner, and hit it to make a 10-coin chest appear. You might want to kill the 
    dragon, too. Head through the south door. See that star platform? You want to 
    hover on to it. Watch out-there's a dragon in here, too. Once you're going back 
    and forth on the star, edge to the south. You should be able to make out a 
    platform to hover to. Once you're there, step on the second star platform. 
    You'll see a treasure chest. Hover over to it and grab a gold key! Then step 
    back on the platform, and ride it west to the warp pad. Step on that, and you're 
    right above the Zelda room. Go down the stairs, and push the block down. Go 
    east, and then step out again and push the block west. Then go through the south 
    door. Go south again. Pound down all the stakes in this room, and drag the block 
    on to the bottom button. Go through the northwest door. See the black stuff in 
    here? It's not a pit. It will hurt you when you step on it, though. Be careful. 
    Hover east as far as you can, and then run, if you have to, to get to the 
    switch. Flick it, and make a dash for the north door across the spikes. Ow Ow 
    Ow. Hey, look, it's a big chest. Wasn't that worth it? Inside is the GUARDIAN 
    STATUE. Feed it coins, and it makes you invincible for a while! Neat, huh? Make 
    your way back to the Zelda room, using the statue to protect you from the 
    spikes. Go up the stairs, and through the north door here. You might want to 
    light a candle first. Make your way through the mini-maze filled with nightmares 
    in this room, and go out the north door. Kill the dragon in this next room, and 
    fall down the hole. Crush the skull in front of you, and step on the star 
    platform. As it goes around the room, crush all the skulls. Then step off on the 
    east side of the room, and hover over to the chest for a silver key. Exit off 
    the southwest platform using your grapple. Wait until you see the star platform 
    in this next room. You'll have to hover on to it. It takes a bit of timing, so 
    don't feel bad if you fall a few times. Once you're on it, use your grapple to 
    climb up to the west door, and go through it. Kill the nightmares in this room, 
    and go out the south door. Kill the bats, and go south again. Kill the 
    nightmares in this room, and smash the skulls. When you get to where there are 
    four mini-paths, take the bottom one for a treasure chest with 50 coins. Then 
    take the one above it for a warp pad. Step on the pad and you'll be in familiar 
    territory. Make your way back to the dragon room where you fell down the hole. 
    Use the silver key you got in the silver-key door.
    
    Before you step on the star platform in this room, go along the walkway that 
    surrounds the south side. Flick the switch, and then get on the platform. Ride 
    it west, and start north up the walkway. See the switch on the platform in the 
    middle? Get back on the star platform and hover over to it. Give it a flick. 
    Then get back on the star platform, and head out the northeast door. Push the 
    TNT barrels here and get into the southern portion of the room. There's some 
    strange fire-ghosts in here. You can light your candle on them. Use the lit 
    candle to light the two torches in the other part of the room. Then swat the 
    fire ghosts with your staff to pop them. A treasure chest will appear, holding a 
    gold key. Go through the southeast door and kill the dragon. Then step into the 
    pit in the floor. You'll fall down straight south of the Zelda room. Make your 
    way to the room right above the Zelda room. Use your gold key to go through the 
    gold-key door.
    
    Wow, a big room filled with lava. The tiles in this room fall, so be careful. 
    Run across, and avoid the sharp swinging thing. Exit out the south door. See the 
    pair of blocks in the light in this room? Push the bottom one upwards, and a 
    chest will appear, containing a silver key. Then head west, and step on the star 
    platform above the sea of lava. Watch out for the nightmares on the other side. 
    Kill them, and leave via the west door. Smash the skulls in this room, and get 
    ready to play with star platforms. They go up and down, and side to side, all 
    over a pit of lava. Hover to the first one, and kill the dragon flying around. 
    Wait until it gets next to the platform going in a square. Then step on to it. 
    You'll see a third platform going side to side. As soon as you think you can, 
    hover on to it. Then as soon as it abuts the next platform, the one going up and 
    down, make a transfer. Once this last platform is near the top, hover off onto 
    safe land, and exit through the north door. Kill all the mushroom men in here. 
    You should get at least one mushroom, if you're in need. Then push the stone 
    blocks so they make a square. A chest will appear containing a BIG PEACH. Yum. 
    Use your silver key, and go through the silver key door to the north. Pound the 
    stakes, and use the protection statue you just got to protect you from the 
    spikes. Pound the stakes at the other end, and kill the big fists over there. 
    Then go through the east door. Talk to the dragon bones in here, and get the 
    mushroom chest that appears. Then, go through the north door.
    
    Boss fight: Phoenix
    
    Strategy: Use the grapple to attack. Stay out of the way of the wind and black 
    smoke attacks. When the fireballs chase you, run away, then swat them with your 
    staff. The best time for attack is during the wind. Once the birdie bites it, 
    grab the page, and get out of there.
    
    Leave the Dragon Mountain area and head back to the Snowy Pass. Head South, then 
    east, then east again. You'll come upon some farmers being attacked by 
    nightmares in the eastern part of this area. Kill the nightmares, and pound the 
    stakes down to get to the farmers. Some more nightmares will appear. Pop them as 
    well. Then talk to the farmers. Pound the stakes behind them, and get the 100 
    coin chest. Then walk past the chest to the east. There's a lot of stones in 
    this area. Break them with your hammer and make your way eastward. Watch out for 
    the egg dropping buzzards. Kill them with the grapple if you want. When you get 
    to the orange warp pad, step on it.
    
    Drag the skull you see to the north out of the way, and walk on the path it was 
    blocking. Put a firefly in the globe you find, and walk between the two peaches. 
    Watch out for the pikemen. Keep heading north, and you'll come to a big tree 
    with a door in it. Go in the door.
    
    Part 2-8: Tower of Karma
    -------------------------
    
    Talk to the Tower Guardian. Tell him you're ready, and he'll... change you into a 
    slime?! Yep. This tower is pretty easy. You just need to keep climbing the 
    levels, and avoiding all the monsters. You can't kill them, because, well, 
    you're a slime. It's fun to bounce around, at least. Anyway, one you've been 
    slimed, head through the north door.
    
    Step on the star platform here, and ride it north to the switches. Flick the 
    switches, and then avoid the weird bug and go through the north door.
    
    Use the barrels in this room to kill the mushroom men, and then push the two 
    lower peaches down. Push the upper peach out of the way, and go through the 
    north door.
    
    Climb the left set of stairs here and step on the red button, while avoiding the 
    slime. Step on the star platform it activates, and ride it across to the other 
    platform. Avoid the second slime, and hit the button on this platform. Splat to 
    the ground (quite literally) and, dodging the third slime, go through the north 
    door.
    
    This level is a bit like the bonus levels in the old gauntlet game. Hit the 
    switch, and then run (or blob quickly) to get the bonuses that appear. Then head 
    out the north door.
    
    Hop on the star platform in here, and hop on to the next one as they line up. 
    Then hop onto the one after that. Watch out for the buzzard. Exit North.
    
    Push the peaches on to the buttons to open the door in this room. Stepping on 
    the extra buttons makes little peaches appear north of the other button on the 
    opposite side. Exit north.
    
    Flick the switch, and walk on the falling tiles across the pit. Remember, if you 
    can't see colored sparks in the background, it's safe to walk on. Watch out for 
    the nightmare at the end. Exit north.
    
    Flick the switch in this room and exit north. Watch out for the buzzard that 
    appears.
    
    Boss Fight: Tower Guardian/It's monkey time!
    
    You can't fight while you're in blob form, so just dodge when he turns you into 
    a slime. Eventually you'll have an identity crisis and turn back into a monkey. 
    Kill all the slimes that come at you to win. Grab the page through the west 
    door, and you're done. That was quick, wasn't it?
    
    Head back to Snowy Pass. Don't forget to grab the BIG PEACH that appears in 
    front of the tree, first. Once you're at the sign that reads 'Snowy Peak', step 
    south a few steps, then head west. Activate the Thunder Stone, and keep going 
    west. You should find a sign that reads 'Gypsy Village - North'. Take a few 
    steps to the east, and then walk north. You'll be in Gypsy Village! There's not 
    really much to do here. You can buy items at the tent/store to restock, and 
    activate the thunder stone. Talk to the man blocking Sandy's tent, too. Then, go 
    to monkey village. In the pub (it's to the west of the town square) you'll find 
    that man's brother. He's scared, and doesn't want to go outside. Agree to give a 
    message to his brother. As long as you're in the area, talk to the guard outside 
    the library, and he'll ask you to find the monkey scouts and give them the news. 
    You're really just a furry mailman, aren't you? Anyway, head back to the gypsy 
    village and give the man his message. Go into the tent he was blocking to find a 
    girl named sandy. She says she'll be in the swamp later. Go back to snowy pass, 
    and head south. See the tree standing alone by itself in this area? Head 
    straight south from that tree, into the gap in the woods. You'll find the monkey 
    scouts. Another message?! Egad. Leave the monkey scouts and return to the area 
    with the tree. From there, head east. In the eastern part of this area, you'll 
    find a skull set into some trees. Pull it out and go into the path it was 
    blocking. Head north into the hole in the big tree. This is the swamp. Watch out 
    for the hoppers here. Head east through a hole in a tree. You'll find a hut. Go 
    inside, and talk to Sandy. She'll give you the password, plus a nifty METAL 
    STAFF! Head back to the swamp. Activate the thunder stone, and talk to the Left 
    statue. He'll give you a mushroom. Then go north to the space ship. Talk to the 
    statue in this area, and enter the hatch that opens.
    
    Part 2-9: The Spaceship
    ------------------------
    Watch Out! There are big cannons in this room that shoot at you. You can't kill 
    them. Step on the orange warp pad. There are weird robots in this room that lay 
    dynamite. Bash them with your hammer. Go through the west door. The Green bars 
    in this room are like spikes, Don't step on them. Walking on just the squares, 
    hit the red button to open the door and turn off the cannon. Grab the treasure 
    chest for 50 coins, and exit out the west door. Be careful this next room has 
    poisonous gas in it. Use your statue of protection, and push the weird globes 
    onto the squares. The South East door will open, go through it. In this next 
    room avoid the cannons and push the globe to make your way through. Then run 
    back and quickly step on the button and run through the south door. In this 
    corridor You'll meet the alien boss. Whack him once with your staff, and he'll 
    disappear. Exit south. Step on the star platform in this room and ride it west. 
    Hover onto the next star platform going south. Ride that one south to the third 
    and exit through the south door. If you fall off the star platform mid way 
    through, just keep running. You can use your grapple to get up at the end. In 
    the south room you'll find a cannon, and more weird robots. Push the south west 
    orb to open the west door. Head west in this next room hovering over the hot 
    pipes, and avoiding the crystal stars. Use the statue in the next room and run 
    quickly to the south and step on the button. Run through the globes that open 
    and step on the second button. Open the chest to get a BIG PEACH. Exit to the 
    north. Step on the star platform here and hover east to the button. Step on it, 
    and then grapple to the north door and go out.  Grab the chest in here for the 
    gold key, and kill the slimes that appear. Go back to the room where you pushed 
    the south west orb. Go through the south door in this room and step on the warp 
    pad. Hover west to the orange warp pad. Repeat. Hover south west top the lower 
    warp pad. Kill the weird robots in this room. Hit the red button above the blue 
    warp pad. Then run east and hit the red button east of the door, then run west 
    and hit the red button west of the door. The door will open, go through it. 
    Hover to the star platform in this room, and hover to the button, dodging cannon 
    fire. Hit the button and go through the north door. Dodging crystal stars hit 
    all the buttons in this room and grab the chests for a mushroom and coins. Go 
    south and then East. Wait for the star platform to come near and hover over to 
    it. Ride it across to the other side and grapple up. Hit the button and go 
    through the east door. Go north. And kill all the red slimes in this room. Exit 
    through the north door. Grab the treasure chest for some coins, and then step on 
    the orange warp pad. As soon as you warp, run to the North east corner of the 
    room and step on the button to turn the cannons off. Then open the big chest. 
    You'll get the STUN STATUE. Feed it coins, and it freezes enemies in the room. 
    Then step on the orange warp pad. Kill all the slimes in this room to get a 
    mushroom. Then step on the eastern warp pad. Step through the east door.
    
    Boss Fight: Alien X
    
    Strategy: Hit him with your staff as he first appears. Watch out for the fire 
    balls he shoots. When he appears behind the barrier throw sticks of Dynamite at 
    him. Dodge the bombs he throws. He alternates between sides so anticipate his 
    moves. When he's toast, grab the page and you're out of there. 
    
    Head back to Dragon Mountain (where the sign that says 'dragon mountain' is). 
    From here, go east, and you'll find the nightmare shrine. Activate the thunder 
    stone, and then go southwards. Talk to the guardian statue, and he'll lower the 
    gate. Step on to the red swirl and you'll be transported into the land of 
    nightmares.
    
    Part 2-10: The Nightmare Realm
    --------------------------------
    
    Head north from the swirl. Kill the big-fisted guys in this area and head east. 
    Kill the fisted guys, and hover north. To the northwest, you can barely see a 
    platform. Hover on to that. There's another platform off to the northwest. Hover 
    there. Exit to the Northwest. Hover west, and step on the warp pad. There's a 
    friendly nightmare in this next room. He'll sell you exploding spears and pie 
    pieces. Buy what you need, and exit out the west door. Walk down the many 
    flights of stairs, and exit to the south. Kill the spinning nightmares, and step 
    on the east warp platform. Walk to the north, and go into the north door.
    
    Boss fight: Nightmare king (part 1)
    
    Strategy: Walk away from him as he sucks in. When he stops inhaling, nail him 
    with spears. Kill any slimes he spits out. Try not get hit by the big beam he 
    shoots. He's pretty easy this go around. When you kill him, exit to the north.
    
    There are blocks running across the pit in this room, but there's a big gap in 
    them. Charge up your hover, then run across to the gap. Hover across the gap to 
    the other side. Don't wait until you're on the blocks to charge up, because they 
    fall. Once you're across, thump down the stake to the east. Go past it, and 
    flick the switch to the south. Exit out the east door. Dodge the crystal stars 
    in this hall, and grapple your way on to the raised platforms. Careful, because 
    the crystal stars can block your grapple, and ruin your day. Exit out the east 
    door. You'll be in a room that's mostly pit. Go to the north part of the 
    platform you're on, and you should see a star platform. Hover on to it. When it 
    rises to the top, hover east on to the thin platform. Walk along it south, and 
    make a hover of faith southward. You'll land on a small square platform. Kill 
    the annoying buzzard, and look to the southwest. You should see a platform with 
    four stakes on it. To the east of that is a star platform. Hover on to it. Pound 
    down all four stakes and the platform will start moving. Ride it east. Watch out 
    for the buzzard. Pound all four stakes on the eastern platform, and then step 
    back on the star platform. Hover onto the platform to the northeast of the 
    eastern stake platform. There's a star platform that runs north-south off this 
    platform. Step on it, and ride it north. You'll find a switch. Hit it, and then 
    hover south next to the eastern door. Grab the chest that appears for 100 coins, 
    and exit out the east door.
    
    This room is a pain in the monkey-butt. There are buzzards all over, and it's 
    all hard moves. Get your grapple out, and get ready. Then step on the star 
    platform. Wait about one second, and then grapple east. With luck, you'll be 
    lifted up on to a higher platform. Wait! Don't step on the star platform on the 
    other side. Instead, hover east. You'll land on a second platform, and see the 
    corridor take a turn to the north. Now, wait until the  second star platform 
    comes from the north, and hover on to it. Grapple north, quickly. With timing 
    and luck, you'll pop up on to the higher platform. Don't get on the star 
    platform again. Instead, hover north three times. Then, step on the star 
    platform as it heads north. Step off, and head out the north door. Congrats, 
    you've just finished the hardest room in the game. 
    
    In this next room, there are 9 poundable objects, arranged in a square. Pound 
    them in this order:

    To open the west door. Go through it. Watch in this next corridor, because the 
    tiles fall. Get out your grapple, and run west. Grapple up on to the small 
    platform. Hop down on to the star platform on the other side. Grapple up to the 
    next platform to the west. Hover off it (remember those falling blocks) and go 
    through the west door.
    
    Now you should be in a big, darkened room. This is a bit complex, but not too 
    dangerous. First, hover west off the gap in the railing right in front of the 
    door you came out of. You should be able to make it to the platform with the 
    switch. Hit the switch, and hover to the ground, avoiding the crystal stars. 
    Head to the north end of the room, and you'll see a grapple on the wall. Use it 
    to get back to the higher level. If you stand right in front of the silver key 
    door, you should be able to make out a star platform that comes into sight time 
    to time to the southwest. Hover on to it, and pound your way to the switch it's 
    circling. Get back on the star platform. When it gets to the south of the 
    switch, hover south off of it. You'll land on another platform. Hover east, and 
    you'll find yourself on a switch platform. Hit the switch, and then hover off 
    this platform, avoiding the crystal stars. Get back up on the higher level using 
    the grapple you used before. You'll see that the torch in the northwest corner 
    of the room is lit. Use your candle to light the other three torches in the 
    corners of the room. Then, get back on the star platform, and hover south. Light 
    the two torches here, and you should have a pretty good view of the room. Fall 
    off this platform to the north and get the treasure chest that's appeared on the 
    floor. It contains a mushroom, which you'll probably need by now. Get back to 
    the upper level, and hover off the gap just to the west of the south door. Flick 
    the switch, and hover back near the south door. Go to the area of the east door, 
    and pound down the two stakes. Hover west, and on to the southern of the two 
    platforms you can get to. Flick the switch. Head out the west door. Kill all the 
    nightmares in here, and use your candle to light all the torches. You'll get 
    four chests! Raid the 180 coins in them, and exit the way you came in, to the 
    east. Then head out the south door of this big room.
    
    There's some spikes here, so use your protection statue. Dash south until you 
    hit solid ground, and then dash west. You'll run into two treasure chests with 
    20 coins each. Using your protection again. Dash all the way east until you hit 
    solid ground. Wait! Don't dash south. That's a pit. Wait until the star platform 
    comes across, and use it to cross the pit. Halfway through the ride, there's 
    some stakes to the west. Pound those, and ride a second platform to 40 more 
    coins, if you want. Otherwise, just ride the first star platform straight south. 
    Use your statue one more time, and run west. Pound the stakes in your way, and 
    grab the two chests. You'll get 20 coins... and a silver key! Make your way back 
    to the big, dark room. Relight your candle on the lit torch, then use the silver 
    key in the north door. There's a ditch in this room containing slimes. Ignore it 
    at first, and walk to either side, killing the two nightmares in the room. When 
    they are dead, the blocks in front of the ditch will move, and you can go into 
    it. Kill the slimes, and grapple out to the north. Exit through the north door.
    
    This is another annoying room. See the two crystal stars? About half of all the 
    tiles north of them are falling tiles. The easiest way to do this is to pretend 
    they're all falling tiles, and hover around them. In this room, there are five 
    poundable things. Pound them in this order:
    
    OXX
    XX
    
    XXX
    OX
    
    XXO
    XX
    
    XXX
    XO
    
    XOX
    XX
    
    A treasure chest will appear, containing a gold key! Head back to the big dark 
    room. Exit out the west door. You'll be in the room with the four chests. Go out 
    the west door here. You'll be in a room with five stakes. Pound them in this 
    order:
    
    X X
     X
    X O
    
    X O
     X
    X X
    
    X X
     X
    O X
    
    O X
     X
    X X
    
    X X
     O
    X X
    
    Grab the chest that appears, and get the 100 coins within. Exit out the south 
    door. A star platform will move on by in front of you. Ride it to the west and 
    push the switch behind the stakes. Then ride it east. Get off on the little 
    platform, get your grapple ready, and step on the second star platform that 
    comes by. Grapple up over the platform that's in your way, and splat down on the 
    other side quickly. Step west off the platform, and hover over the small gap. 
    Walk west a little, and hover over another gap. Exit out the west door.
    
    Dodge the crystal stars and walk west. Hit the switch that's in the middle of 
    the floor. In the north/south part of this corridor, you'll find some pikemen. 
    Bat them out of the way, and run south. Make a turn to the east, dodge one more 
    crystal spike, and splat a few bats. Exit out the southeast door. You're almost 
    done!
    
    You'll notice you're back near the entrance again. Use the gold key on the north 
    door. Walk through. There's some pikemen in this room. Avoid them, and run out 
    either the east or west door. They both lead to where you're going. Kill the 
    nightmares in the corridor, and go out whichever door you didn't come in. Kill 
    the last few nightmares in this room, and go through the north door. Open the 
    chests in here to fight your final nightmares and to get a gold key. Walk over 
    the ditch and the villagers will give you one last pep talk. Steel yourself and 
    head through the north door, to face the final battle.
    
    Final Boss: Nightmare king
    
    Walk north, and you'll encounter the nightmare king. He'll suck the pages out of 
    you. They'll drain some of his power. You'll see him for what he really is. He 
    has one part for each book page.
    
    Part one: Just hit the sucker with your staff. 
    Part two: When the lights flash on, mark where he is, and go over to that area. 
    When they flash on again, hit him with your staff.
    Part three: Avoid the falling areas! They'll light up before he makes them fall. 
    Take out your gourd, and use it to suck him in. Just keep him bottled in there 
    for a minute and he'll take a hit.
    Part four: He'll suck out all your dynamite! When he chucks it at you, pick it 
    up and chuck it back. When the lights go on, take out your hammer and hit him 
    with it.
    Part five: Just like part four, only with explosive spears! Wait until he's 
    through with the spears, and then pick up the dynamite he throws, and chuck it 
    back. When the lights go on, pound him!
    Part six: Just like five.
    Part seven: Just like five. Hit him here, and you've won! Watch the ending, and 
    enjoy!

    Part 6: Notes and Thanks
    ----------------------------
    
    Thanks to Mike Zaite, for helping me type this, and for putting up with me 
    playing it when he wanted to do something interesting.
    
    Thanks and sorry to FFXTIDUSFFX. I probably rained on your parade by making a 
    walkthrough while you were midway through yours. Sorry about that.
