    Some Basic Tips
    Collect as many blue tings as you can. They not only give you free 
    lives, but also lead the way to hidden cages and power-ups. From time 
    to time, you may see a single ting enticing you to jump into the 
    unknown. Go for it! You never know what you may find.
    At times you may hear a strange noise that means that something special 
    has appeared. You might not always be able to see this gift 
    immediately, but it won't be far away. Don't be afraid to retrace your 
    steps because it could be a cage of Electoons.
    Even if you can't get all of the cages in a level, keep going and try 
    to finish it anyway. Often you will receive new powers at the end of a
    level that will make the game much easier.
    You can only get to Mr. Dark's Candy Chateau once you have freed all of 
    the Electoons.
    Dream Forest World
    Pink Plant Woods
    Jungle Level 1: Just after the red flower that bends, if you climb the 
    vines and go left you will find a free life. 
    Jungle Level 2: Jump on the flower at the very left of the screen and 
    then jump on the vine hanging above it. Grab all of the blue tings 
    around the vine, and then jump over to the platform on the right. If 
    you've collected 10 tings, the magician will take you to the first 
    bonus level. 
    Jungle Level 3: Betilla the Fairy will give you the power to throw your 
    fist. Go to the far right side of the screen, jump and knock down the 
    purple grape, jump on top of the grape, and then jump onto the platform 
    to exit the level.
    Jungle Level 4: To get special powers that are suspended above water, 
    find the nearest purple grape, knock it down and push it with your fist 
    into the water. Once the grapes are in the water, you can jump on them 
    and move (carefully!) left and right. Using this technique, you can 
    find another magician at the bottom right side of this level. 
    Anguish Lagoon
    Jungle Level 5: After the second floating platform, you'll see a bunch 
    of blue tings. Jump off the platform and grab them, they'll lead to a 
    cage of Electoons. Be ready to duck though, because there's a hunter 
    Jungle Level 6: Try to stay in the middle of the screen so you can see 
    from which direction Mosquito is coming. 
    The Swamps of Forgetfulness
    Jungle Level 9: Jump up and knock Tarayzan's clothes down which are 
    stuck on the vine. To thank you, he will give you a magic seed. You can 
    plant the seed repeatedly and then jump on the plants that grow to 
    advance through this level. You cannot, however, plant one seed on top 
    of another.
    When you reach the exit to this level, a free life will appear on the 
    left side of the screen. Try to get if you have enough time left before 
    the water reaches you.
    Jungle Level 10: Knock the purple grapes down and they will fall on the 
    heads of the enemies. You can then walk on these grapes.
    On the second large island, you will see one of the scavengers and a 
    bunch of Antitoons. Don't use the grape as a way of getting rid of the 
    scavenger or you'll miss a cage of Electoons. Instead approach the 
    island from the left by water using another grape. Punch all of the 
    Antitoons while still on top of the grape. Then, knock down the grape 
    that floats above the island. Push it to the right and into the water. 
    (One way to move grapes is to jump on top of them, punch in the 
    opposite direction you want to move, and then duck. When your fist 
    comes back, it will bump into the grape first and push you along.) When 
    you arrive at the next island, a cage will fall from the sky.
    Jungle Level 11: Climb up the first vine that's holding up the purple 
    grape. Go to the top and then drop down and a cage will appear.
    Knock the grape down, jump on top of it, punch and then duck down so 
    that it moves in order to ride it down the hill. Before you get to the 
    end of the hill, jump off the grape and onto a floating platform. Jump 
    over to the right again and you'll find another magician.
    On the right side of the platform with the magician you'll see a blue 
    ting. Jump off after it and platforms will appear leading you to 
    another cage.
    Moskito's Nest
    Jungle Level 12: Climb up and get the tings on top of the mushroom tree 
    at the beginning of the level. A cage will appear on the ground.
    When you see the photographer while floating on a purple grape, don't 
    get off yet. Stay on the grape and it will take you to a cage.
    The tentacle can only be stopped by punching it in the mouth.
    Jungle Level 13: Climb up the tree to grab the tings and a cage will 
    appear below. Before exiting this level, knock down the grape and push 
    it to the left until it falls in the water. Jump on it and float to the 
    right and you will find another cage.
    Going back: Once you acquire the power to hang and to punch, you can go 
    back and pick up a few more cages. In Jungle Level 2, 3 more cages will 
    become accessible. 
    In Jungle Level 5, get on the falling platform at the very top of the 
    screen. As you are falling, wind up quickly and punch to the left to 
    knock down the grape. You will fall on a platform with the grape. Jump 
    on top of the grape and swing over to the left with the grapple until 
    you see the cage. Then jump down to the mushroom tree and another cage 
    will appear. 
    In Jungle Level 12, climb the vine just after the photographer and get 
    rid of the bad guys. You'll find a magician and a little bit further 
    some flying hooks that will lead to a hidden cage. 
    Once you've beaten a boss, when you return to that level you will not 
    have to fight him again. Also you can exit a level by touching the exit 
    sign at the beginning or end of the level. 
    Band Land
    Bongo Hills
    Music Level 2: Advance forward to the end of the bongo, then retrace 
    your steps, jumping over the cloud and you will find a free life. Jump 
    above the exit panel at the end of the level. When you land on the left 
    side of the panel, a cloud will appear off to the right side of the 
    screen. Get on the cloud and it will take you to a cage.
    Music Level 3: At the second flying maracas, just after the 
    photographer, don't get on it right away. Instead, fall beneath it. 
    Continue going down until you find a cage. Retrace your steps.
    Music Level 4: Go after the lone power-up hanging over the edge and you 
    will find a hidden reserve of power-ups, tings, and a golden fist.
    Music Level 5: When you arrive at the first photographer, instead of 
    continuing forward, jump back on the brown spinner and jump over to the 
    platform on the left. Shrink by touching the fairy, and follow the 
    tings. Fall down onto the brown spinner and descend until you see the 
    notes and then jump off to the left. Take the second ascending cloud 
    and you will see a cage. After freeing the Electoons, get back on the 
    cloud and retrace your steps.
    At the exit, jump over to the other side of the panel and fall down to 
    the bottom. Go left and you will find another cage. Retrace your steps 
    and on the far right side jump and a cloud will appear to take you to 
    the exit.
    Allegro Presto
    Music Level 7: At the second arrow-shaped group of tings, just after 
    the false notes (which you must get past by ducking) instead of 
    continuing down, jump up to the ledge on the far left side of the 
    screen, then jump over the right and you will find a cage. A little 
    lower down, just after you see an arrow-shaped group of tings pointing 
    upwards, pick up a lot of speed and with a big jump you will reach 
    another platform where there is a hidden cage.
    Music Level 8: Timing is everything when the trumpets blow you back and 
    forth. Try to jump early enough to reach higher platforms. After the 
    photographer, instead of descending, climb up the platforms to find the 
    free life.
    Music Level 9: Move toward the right, jump on the first bongo, and then 
    retrace your steps and you will find a cage. After the photographer, 
    jump on the two small platforms and then retrace your steps. A brown 
    spinner will appear. Ride it and it will lead you to a cage.
    Once you've reached the walking drum, jump off onto one of the sliding 
    platforms. You'll hear a noise which means that something has appeared.
    Jump back left to get to the bonus level. At the end of the level, you 
    will seem stuck because the exit panel is not in sight. Jump on the 
    upper slippery platform, and a cloud will appear. Jump on the cloud and 
    the exit panel will appear.
    Gong Heights
    Music Level 12: Jump on the clouds above the first Tibetan and a cage 
    will appear near the entrance to the level. When you see a series of 4 
    clouds underneath a group of tings, drop down beneath the clouds to 
    find another cage.
    Mr Sax's Hullabaloo
    Music Level 14: At the far right side of the level, you will see a cage 
    beneath you that's inaccessible for the moment. Take the steps going up 
    which will lead you to another cage. After your picture is taken by the 
    photographer, you will begin a long downward slide. Pick up a lot of 
    speed (be careful to duck underneath the notes) and run all the way 
    into the wall on the far right side of the level (you will see some 
    sparkling stars). If you picked up enough speed, brown spinning wheels 
    will appear upon impact with the wall. Ride them up to another cage.
    You can move from left to right on the cymbals, but when they start to 
    vibrate, move to the middle. It's the only spot to avoid getting 
    The flying hooks will lead you to another cage. Continue going up and 
    you will find a free life.
    Music Levels 15&16: Mr Sax cannot feel your punches. To beat him, punch 
    his false notes back into the hole in his horn.
    Going back: Once you get the helicopter power at the end of Allegro 
    Presto, go back to Bongo Hills. In the forth level (the one with the 
    lightning) the helicopter will allow you to grab a flying hook which 
    leads to a cage.
