1. How to use this Guide
================================
This Guide is to help you beat all the Challenges thrown at you in each city 
block.  Why do that you ask? Well, not only does beating challenges net you 
abilities for your monsters, and a cool 5,000 points, but you need to beat 
all challenges in all cities to unlock Eyegore. 
I have outlined each city block by its name, what you need to do, 
where the items you need (or people to eat) are located, and the best way to
do it, if some extra work is involved. When I say front building, I mean a 
building on the front half of the street.  Background building means 
the back half of the street, and may require you knock a building down 
first to reach where the items are. 
I assume that you have a basic knowledge of the game, controls, how to stay 
alive, etc.

and the remaining 8 will "walk against the wind" from the left side.  
*NOTE* if you kill one a way other than eating it, NO MORE MIMES WILL SHOW UP. 
10 MIMES IS THE MAXIMUM THAT SHOWS UP!

Sinbadís
Reveal a Jackpot
Locations: 
to get this one you first need to destroy the front tower to your immediate 
left.  They are then found in a row on the building behind it 3 windows 
from the top

Nero's
Destroy the Scum Carbonator.  
Someone with a high Crush rating will be able to do more damage to it.  
The most damage can be dealt by either smashing the ground or by jump 
smashing, if you have the ability.  Be careful as when you get close
Dr. Vector will send out a shockwave that will send you flying.


===================================
3. San Francisco
===================================

Fisherman's Wharf
Eat 3 Crabs
Locations: all are found in the "Crab House Building"
1. left side, 2 windows down from top
2. left side, 3 windows up from bottom
3. 2 windows up from bottom, 2nd window from right
4. right side, 2 windows down from top

The Park
Destroy 5 Cable Cars
Locations:
The Cable cars will come through from the right to the center, where they 
slowly turn around then move to the left of the screen.  You have plenty 
of time to destroy them, and there is not a limited number that will appear.

Pacific Heights
Eat 5 Skaters
Locations:
The skaters will come through and skate around on the sidewalk.  
They are easily identified by a red circle around their feet.  
Like the mimes there seems to be a set amount.

Haight St.
Eat 6 Bikers
Locations:
The Bikers drive through in groups of two, one from the 
right and one from the left.  Look for the red circle beneath them, 
then simply pick them off their motorcycles and satisfy your 
craving for greasy food.  Don't worry if one makes it off the screen, he'll 
be back.

SoMa
Eat 10 Swat
Locations:
These guys are all over the place.  You can find them hanging out windows, 
and a van pulls up with 5 of them every now and then.  
The only problem with that is once you eat one, the other 4 flee in terror.  
If you eat one as they are just getting out of the van though, 
not all of them will flee in terror, being oblivious to 
their friends grisly demise.  Once again look for the red circles

Tenderloin Dist.
Destroy 4 Streetlights
Locations:
they can be found 2 on the right, and 2 on the left side.  The best way 
to destroy them is with the Roar Attack.  I accidentally threw a car at one, 
knocking it over, WHICH DOES NOT GIVE YOU CREDIT. 
Make sure you physically are the one to destroy the light

Chocolate Factory
Eat 4 Giant Chocolate Bars
Locations:
1. 2 story background building on the right, 2nd window from left, top 
2. 2 story front building on the left, same window as 1
3. 2 story background building on the left, same window as 1 & 2
4. Background building on the far right, middle window, 2nd row from the top

Market Street
Eat 4 Steaks
Locations:
(the Large Hotel on the left is comprised of three separate buildings)
1. Middle hotel building, middle window, 2 windows up from bottom
2. Left hotel building, right side, 3 windows down from top
3. Left hotel building, left side, 4 windows down from top
4. Right Skyscraper, right side, 4 windows down from top
*NOTE* you cannot complete this challenge with Rojo, as he cannot 
eat the steaks. Thanks to k33f b33z3r for pointing this out to me*

Chinatown
Launch 1 Rocket
Location: on top of the building directly behind you.  It's a huge 
red and white rocket, very hard to miss.  Simply climb up there and give it a 
good whack. Just be sure to get out of the way when it launches.

Presidio
Defeat the Scum-Hawk. 
You have to destroy the Scum-Hawk sent to end your Reign of Terror!  
There are several ways to do this.  Stand on a rooftop, when it flies in, 
hit it or jump and hit it with an air spin.  
Or for a slight challenge (or if your using a monster who can't jump) 
stand on the ground, behind a building, after it fires its missiles, 
hurry under it and punch upwards knocking it out of the air.


=============================
4. London
=============================

Chelsea
Collect 4 British Flags
Locations
1. 2nd tall building from the left, middle window, 4 windows up
2. 2nd tall building from the right, right side, 3 windows down
3. small building to the right, top right corner
4. left tall building, top left corner.

Mayfair
Destroy 5 Chimneys
Locations
The chimney's are on the roofs of the building, simply climb up and kick them 
down.  You only need to get 5 of the possible 6

West End

2. 2nd building from the left, top left corner
3. 4th building from the left, right side 2 windows up
4. right building, right side, 3 windows down
5. right building, top right corner
6. 2nd building from the right, left side, 2 windows down

Trafalgar
Eat 15 SWAT
Locations:
Exactly the same as San Francisco: SoMa, only the SWAT are more frequent in 
appearance.  Again Look for the red circles.

Piccadilly Circus
Pop the Ralph Balloon
Location
The Balloon is on the top of the building right behind you.  
Climb up then use either air spins or punch upwards until it pops.  
If you destroy the building before popping the balloon it will drift away.

Parliament
Eat 6 Royal Guards
Location
The Guards come out of two little shacks on the sides of the main building.  
They walk out, do some military maneuver, then go back in.  
Look for the red circles again.  
There are quite a lot of them so don't worry about killing them all off.
**YOU CAN DESTROY THE SHACKS HOWEVER! IF YOU DO NO MORE GUARDS WILL APPEAR**! 

Big Ben
Destroy the Cyclo-Saucer
Dr. Vector is back in a UFO!! Use similar tactics you used against the 
Scum-Hawk, someone with Multi-Spin is preferable here. The Saucer has a 
force field around it, so you can only injure it when the field is down.  
He generally lowers the field to attack you.  Punching upwards seems to do 
the most damage.


============================
5. Los Angeles
============================

Midway Studios
Destroy 5 Police Cars
Locations:
The cars will drive in sirens blazing from time to time.  Smash, throw, kick 
or otherwise total 5 to beat the challenge.  The faster you eat the police 
officer, the faster another cop car will show up.  

Studio B
Pop the Lizzie Balloon
Locations:
This is identical to the challenge for London: Piccadilly Circus.  
Simply climb up the building behind you and punch down the balloon.

The Backlot
Eat 10 Business People
Locations:
This is a bit harder then the "Eat X SWAT" challenge.  
The business people will only be found looking out windows.  
Look for the red circle.  As you can only get them out of buildings, 
I recommend beating the challenge before you destroy ANY building.

LaBrea
Destroy 8 Helicopters
Locations:
The Helicopters will fly in and shoot at you quite frequently.  
Simply knock them out of the sky.  A well placed punch upwards can get both 
at once.  The News Copter does count towards this number.

Burbank
Destroy 5 tanks
Locations:
The Tanks will come in from either side and shoot at you.  
I have found the most effective way to destroy them without getting shot 
in the face is to jump behind them or stand next to it on the sidewalk, 
then pound the ground repeatedly (down and punch)

Rodeo Drive
Collect 3 Diamonds
Locations
1. far right building, top left corner
2. 4th building from the right, top right corner
3. left building, top middle window

Beverly Hills
Eat 5 cakes
Locations:
1. 2nd building from the left, top left corner
2. 2nd building from the right, left side, 2 windows down
3. 1st background building on the right, top left corner
4. 3rd building on the right, right side, 2 windows down
5. 3rd building on the right, top row, 2nd window from the left

Hollywood Blvd.
Destroy the Scum Carbonator
Identical to the boss for Las Vegas. Simply smash the tank.

===============================
6. Chicago
===============================

Streeterville
Destroy 4 Fire Trucks
Locations:
The Fire Trucks will drive around constantly on the street.  Take them out at
your leisure.

Michigan Ave.
Collect 1 Gold Coin
Location:
1. 4th building from the left, top right corner.

The Loop E.
Destroy 4 Trains
Locations
The trains will drive by on top of the short line of buildings along the block, 
simply smash them away.  Be careful though as the trains can knock you off the
tracks. Destroying a building so the train crashes on it's own does not give 
you credit. One of the easiest ways is to jump from the sidewalk and hit them
with a spin attack.  You can stand beneath the tracks on the far sides, and 
punch upwards at them.  You can also take out only one of the small buildings.
The coming trains will sometimes stop before the gap, letting you smash them 
easily   *NOTE: the spin attack will only hit one of the trains. Also, after 
a short while, the trains will stop coming when there is a hole in their path*

Downtown
Eat 4 Grenadiers
Locations
The Grenadiers will show up in the Army Trucks.  They are easily 
identified by the red circle, and the fact that they talk like the 
Governor of California.  Don't worry about chasing them down, 
when one shows up it will run to you and start throwing grenades. 

State St.
Destroy 8 Tanks
Exactly like Los Angeles: Burbank.  Take out the tanks and be careful not to 
get shot.

LaSalle
Destroy 6 trains
Exactly the same as the previous block (Loop E.)  Just follow the same tactics.

Wacker
Eat 5 Hot Dogs
Locations: 
This one has given me some problems I have counted about 14 Hot Dogs
located in the buildings, and yet in the 5 times I've gone through they all 
seem to be in different places each time.  I can guarantee that the two Hot 
Dog stands located on the right and left side count for the number eaten, and 
the ones I have listed below were always there. other then that you'll just 
have to keep an eye out. Luckily you have a lot more to choose from, they 
just seem to be randomly placed.
1. Hot Dog stand on the left
2. Hot dog stand on the right
3. left building, middle window, 6 windows up
4. 3rd building from left, top row, 2 windows from right
5. 3rd building from left, right side, 4 windows down
6. right building, middle window, 2 windows up

Union Station
Eat 6 Bus Commuters
Locations:
All 6 are standing behind you.  They can be identified (say it with me now)
by the red circle around them.  Scarf them down then reap your reward.
Be careful not to kick or smash them.

The Tower
Defeat the Cyclo-Saucer
Using the same tactics as mentioned in London, take out Dr. Vector in his 
little saucer.  Did he think this would work again?


========================================
7. Hong Kong
========================================

Port
Launch 2 Rockets
Locations:
1. Roof of left Building
2. Roof of 3rd building from the left

Docks
Destroy 5 SCUM Freighters
Locations:
The Freighters are the boats hauling crates of SCUM Soda across the screen. 
Use whatever methods you see fit to destroy them.

Technology Park
Destroy 4 Bombers
Locations
The Bombers are the planes that fly by bombing you.  The easiest way to do 
this is to climb up one of the tall buildings, (DO NOT SMASH IT! YOU WANT IT 
FULL HEIGHT!) Once up there wait for a plane to fly in then punch upwards.  
Repeat 3 more times.

Gong Park
Hit 6 Gongs
Locations
1. Immediately behind you
2. to your right in a pool of water
3. on top of the far right building
4. on the right of the far left building
5. on top of the far left building
6. on top of the 2nd to left building in the background

Apartment Complex
Eat 8 Cherries
Locations
1. Left building, left side, 2 windows down
2. Left building, top row, middle window
3. Left building, right side, 6 windows up
4. 2nd building from left, middle window, 4 windows up
5. 3rd building from left, right side, 7 windows down
6. 3rd building from left, middle window, 3 windows down
7. 3rd building from right, left side, 3 windows up
8. 3rd building from right, right side, 2 windows down

Market Pavilion
Eat 8 Grenadiers
Locations
Just like Chicago: Downtown  only now they also appear hanging out windows.  
Look for the red circles.

Financial Center
Eat 12 Business People
Locations
Same as Los Angeles: The Backlot.  Look for the red circles and be 
careful about smashing too many windows. I do recommend however, 
destroying the front building on the far right, as I had quite a 
few business people appear in the building behind it, which you cannot get to.  
They appeared most often in the taller blue buildings.

Fortress
Defeat the Scum Leaper
Dr. Vector has decided to try something new!  His new machine jumps 
around on the rooftops.  To defeat him take someone with a high Crush rating 
and climb up on a roof, when he gets near give him a good whack.   
Watch out though, as the foam he spews will knock you off the roof.


====================================
8. New York
====================================

The Bronx
Eat 6 Street Punks
Location:
The Street Punks are running around on the sidewalk attacking you.  You can
identify them by their street clothes and red circles.  After one is eaten 
another will come running in from the left side.  Eat away happily.

Scum Factory
Destroy 3 SCUM Freight Cars
Location:
The trains will drive back and forth on the tracks.  Occasionally one of 
the trains will be carrying crates.  Smash the crates being careful not to 
hit the tankers (the ones that say SCUM).  If you hit a tanker you will be 
knocked flat, so be careful to miss them. It may take a while for a freight 
train to show up, just smash buildings until one does.

Garment Dist.
Eat 4 Steaks
Locations:
1. left building, middle window, 2 windows down
2. 3rd building from the left, left side, 2 windows down
3. 3rd building from the left, right side, 2 windows up
4. 1st front building on the right, middle window, 2 windows down

Greenwich
Destroy 3 Bombers
Locations:
Just like in Hong Kong: Technology Park.  Climb a high building and knock 
down the planes.  This is a bit harder as there isn't any very tall buildings.
you may need to jump to reach them.

Soho
Eat 20 Soldiers
Locations
These guys are everywhere.  They pull in up in vans and trucks. Unfortunately 
they are not all the guys hanging out windows.  Look for the red circles and 
feast away.  The Grenadiers on the street count, but not the ones in the 
windows.

Central Park West
Pop 3 Balloons
Locations
The Balloons are all on the street, simply pop all 3.  Killing the people
holding up the balloons will not cause them to float away. 

Central Park East
Eat 8 Money Bags
Locations:
1. left building, left side, 3 windows up
2. 2nd from left building, left side, 4 windows down
3. 2nd from left building, right side, 3 windows up
4. 2nd from left building, 2 windows from right, 2 windows up
5. 2nd from right building, right side, 4 windows down
6. right building, left side, 3 windows down 
7. right building, middle window, 3 windows up
8. right building, middle window, 5 windows up

Broadway
Destroy 6 Tanks
Locations:
Same as the previous ones, destroy tanks while avoiding getting shot.

Times Square
Eat 12 Business People.
Locations:
As before, be careful completely destroying buildings unless your close to
beating the challenge.  Look for the red circles. All the windows can be
easily reached without too much major destruction.

Empire Building
Destroy the Scum Blimp
Location:
The Blimp is initially protected from attack by electric barriers.  You need
to find and destroy the generators.  You do not need to destroy the block
to pass this level, only need destroy the blimp. After you have destroyed
the generators, climb to the highest point and take out Dr. Vector once
and for all! 
1. behind the front building to your left
2. behind the front building to your right
