    WARNING!!! This article contains a spoiler for the Playstation
    game, Tomba! If you do not want the game spoiled for you, do
    not continue reading any further. I've done my best to split
    it up into sections to minimize spoiling, but don't say I didn't
    warn you. (Here's a tip: make your viewing window smaller.)
    
    NOTE: This is not a complete walkthrough for Tomba! In fact,
    it's not even a complete FAQ! I only rented the game, so I don't
    actually have the game with me right now. I'm writing this from
    memory, so don't expect to find everything you need or even
    perfectly accurate details, although it should be pretty close.
    A bunch of stuff is missing, but hey, there should be enough
    information to help you with what you need. Any corrections
    or missing information can be sent to me, Miguel B.

    This FAQ deals mainly with Events, Items, and the Evil Pigs,
    and any other questions I've seen about the game. The contents
    have been divided into four sections, (I) Events, (II) Items,
    (III) Evil Pigs, (IV) Misc., (V) Credits & Notes
    
    Stuff to Know About this FAQ:
    -   I'm assuming you know where all of the locations are, I'm
    not providing a map.
    -   Whenever I refer to the Haunted Mansion, I'll use "left side",
    "right side", "front side", etc. because I don't remember the
    compass directions. "Front" refers to the side you're on when
    entering from Baccus Village.
    -   Whenever I refer to "after" a particular Event, I mean after
    the Event has been completed, not after it has been discovered.
    
    
    -------------------------
            I. EVENTS
    -------------------------
    
    Well, first of all, I'm not exactly sure of how many Events
    there are in total, but I think it's 130. In my Events list,
    there are no empty spaces except for the last six slots on 8/17,
    and it seems as if no one's found any of those Events either.
    Well, since the first 8 pages deal with Events that are part
    of the main storyline, and the last 9 aren't, it might make
    sense to keep them separated. But I could be wrong, so if anyone
    finds any of those 6 Events, please tell me so I can change
    this info. But for now, I'll work with the 130 Events I have.
    The following chart outlines each Event (in the order they're
    listed in the game), a description of it, where to discover
    the Event, how to complete the Event, and what Item you get (if
    anything). (Don't ask me how much AP each is worth, because I
    have NO idea!!!)
    *Each page of Events is separated by a bar, and you can also
    use "Find" to search for a specific Event (e.g. the 5th Event on
    the 2nd page would be 2/5)

    (if reasonable; I'm not going to list where to get all the Charity
    Wings!!!). The list is in alphabetical order to help you find
    what you're looking for.

            III. EVIL PIGS
    ------------------------------
    
    This section of the FAQ contains information concerning the
    Evil Pigs and the Evil Pig Bags. This includes the color and
    name of each Bag, where to get it, and where to use it. I was
    going to include what each Evil Pig was like, but I've
    forgotten which was which for almost all of them (don't worry,
    they're all pretty easy).
    
    
    THE BLUE PIG BAG - get it from the Dwarf Elder
        use it in the Million-Year Old Man's room
        "...the other blue is somewhere here [Underground Maze]..."
    
    
    THE RED (STORMY) PIG BAG - get it from the Large Keyhole door on Phoenix Mt.
        use it in Charity Square (jump left from the roof over the fountain)
        "...Red is awaiting a miracle..."
    
    
    THE PINK (HAUNTED) PIG BAG - *I think it's the blue chest in Town Hall*
        use it in the Lava Caves, the topleft-most ledge near the beginning
        "...Pink is somewhere really hot..."
    
    
    THE ORANGE (MOUSE) PIG BAG - *one of the chests in Haunted Mansion*
        use it in the Masakari Jungle, jump left from the top of the tall tree
        "...Orange is in the jungle..."
    
    
    THE GREEN (FIRE) PIG BAG - the blue chest at the beginning of Lava Caves
        use it in the Haunted Mansion (the Smiling Door)
        "...Green is the mansion on the lake..."
    
    
    THE NAVY (JUNGLE) PIG BAG - the red (or yellow) chest at Old Tree Hill
        use it at the Familiar Mansion beach
        "...blue is the beachside door..."
    
    
    THE YELLOW (UNDERWATER) PIG BAG - a chest in the waters of Trick Village
        use it at Clock Tower
        "...yellow is the guard of time..."

            IV. MISC. QUESTIONS
    -----------------------------------
    
    Q. How do you get the Gold Medal at Motocross Course?
    A. It's all in the timing of your jumps. Simply put,
        all you have to do is avoid hitting any Pigs and
        avoid any unnecessary obstacles (i.e. water and
        hills). For one thing, you should follow the
        regular route of the course (not the background),
        because it's easier to win with. When you get to
        the up-and-down part, make sure to jump onto the
        middle bump and then jump again onto the large
        one, then jump at the top so that you bounce over
        the Pig sitting downhill. Also remember to jump
        right before you get to the water, and stay on the
        wooden platforms, making sure you jump completely
        over the Pig on the last platform. After that,
        just jump over the remaining pigs (easy!) and
        you're done.
    
    
    
    Q. Where is Motocross Course?
    A. Motocross Course is near the start of the game.
        When you reach the houses, you should see a wall
        with purple plants on it. Knock the plants down
        with your weapon and there'll be a room with a
        Go-Go Cart inside. You can't race until you have
        the Fuel Bar, though.
    
    
    
    Q. What and where are the Bonsugee?
    A. The Bonsugee are the flying squid-like creatures
        found in the background of Mushroom Forest. There
        are 2 of them, either bluish-purple, or yellow,
        depending on where you are in the game. The Yellow
        Bonsugee are there only if you have defeated the
        regular bluish-purple ones, and after a certain
        event, but I don't remember which event.
    
    
    
    Q. Where is the Yellow Flower to get Flower Tears from?
    A. The Yellow Flower is one of the big flowers in the
        background that's either weeping or laughing. You
        can easily find the flower if you start from the
        left end of Mushroom Forest, and head down and right.
    
    
    
    Q. Where are Masakari Jungle and the Village of Civilization?
    A. These locations are a bit farther in the game, and you
        can only reach them after riding the Phoenix the second
        time.
    
    
    
    Q. Where do you find the Cheeses?
    A. Wow, there are so many places I can't even remember
        all of them. I've found 15 Cheeses, and there's
        usually never more than 1 or 2 in a place. Here are
        some I can remember:
        - 2 in Haunted Mansion (Crying Door)
        - 2 in the Ol' Pond AP Box
        - 1 where the Famous Digger is digging on Phoenix Mt.
        - 2 from the hungry man in Hidden Village
        - at least 1 in a chest in the Underground Maze
        So pretty much, just check every little thing, and
        you're bound to find some.
    
    
    
    Q. How many "Vitality +1" Vests are there?
    A. There are 12 Vitality Vests, found in these locations
        (according to EGM2, supposedly):
        - left of the spin bars at the right end of Forest of
          All Beginnings
        - from a mouse in the Baccus Village tavern, after "Death
          Fruit Juice"
        - left of the Wobbly Wharf hut in Dwarf Forest
        - in a blue chest near the end of Lava Caves
        - floating chest right of the tall tree in Masakari Jungle
        - a red chest in the waters of Trick Village
        - from one of the Haunted Mansion thieves, after "Haunted
          Mansion"
        - from the Blue Fortune Teller in Underground Maze
        - from Mizuno after curing her cold
        - a yellow chest right of the danger sign on Stormy Mountain
        - after "I Want a Bronze Medal"
        - after returning the Yam to the woman in Dwarf Village
    
    
    
    Q. How do you defeat the Evil Pigs?
    A. Well, if you haven't figured it out already, you have to
        throw them into the moving Pig Bag that's on the screen.
        Just try to lure them close to the bag, jump on them, and
        wait for the bag to face your direction (don't wait too
        long, the Pigs eventually wake up). Another thing you
        might want to try: equip the Jewel of Fire. That way, if
        you're about to get hit, use it because you become
        practically invincible.
    
    
    
    Q. Where's the Hidden Village?
    A. There are two ways to get there: either through Charity
        Square or through the Lava Caves. Charity Square is a
        one-time, one-way trip, once you've completed "Leaf
        Butterflies" (bring enough Butterflies to the cage).
        You can also enter through Lava Caves; try to go through
        and follow as close to the ceiling as possible. You'll
        have to use the grapple to reach an off-screen pumpkin
        and climb up.
    
    
    
    Q. Where's Yan of the Hidden Village?
    A. The first time you find him is in the Village of All
        Beginnings, in the hut that leads to the Ol' Pond. If
        you look closely, you can see a pair of eyes through the
        window. Talk to him, and you'll start a game of Hide &
        Seek. The next time you'll see him as above the rope
        ladder at the far right end of the Village. After that,
        you'll find him at the Butterfly cage in Charity Square,
        then in the Smiling Door on Phoenix Mt., then behind the
        straw wall in Haunted Mansion, and lastly left of the tall
        tree in Masakari Jungle. You'll only see him again at the
        Hidden Village.
    
    
    
    Q. What's up with Black & White Tomba?
    A. Uh, I have no idea. I've been wondering that too, it only
        seems to make you always go as fast as with Animal Dash on.
        Nothing special.
    
    
    
    Q. Is there another ending if you beat the game with all of the
        events completed?
    A. Well, I read someone's post in the Playstation newsgroup, and
        the poster said there was no special ending. Too bad =(
