    A. Story               
    From Company Line on GameSpot, Link:
    Daxter takes the Jak and Daxter franchise in a whole new direction, taking 
    place during the two years Daxter searches for Jak, who was imprisoned 
    during the events that led to the start of Jak II. Daxter, now on his own in 
    an unfamiliar place, quickly realizes that being small and furry won't help
    his chances of survival. To help stamp out a mysterious metalbug infestation,
    Daxter takes on a job as a pest exterminator. enabling him to explore parts of
    Haven City in an effort to collect the clues that will lead him to Jak. But
    Daxter will soon discover that he'll get more excitement from his job than he
    originally bargained for.
    B. Characters
    B.a. - Daxter
    Daxter is the main character (finally!) in this new installment in the Jak
    and Daxter series. Daxter is the type of person/ottsel that will tell stories
    in bars while near drunk and will definitely try to save Jak if he has to.
    His mission in Daxter is to save Jak from a horrible fate which the result of 
    his efforts are at the beginning of Jak II. Daxter embarks on this journey,
    to fill in the two years between Jak and Daxter and Jak II that was never told
    to the public quite yet. His hobbies are chasing women and beating up Metal-
    Heads. Occupation: Pest Exterminator
    B.b. - Osmo
    Osmo is the manager and founder of where Daxter works as a Pest exterminator.
    Osmo lost his previous employee and eventually met Daxter who is now his 
    current employee. Osmo is an old man, it seems, and is very dependant upon
    other people which is good for him at least. He seems to try and get things 
    done using Daxter and he is a good fellow to talk to. Job Occupation: Pest
    Exterminator Company Manager.

    D. Walkthrough
    D.a. - Bar and Exterminator Shop
    Once it loads up to the level (which takes little to no time at all), you will
    be in control of Daxter and you will be in the bar currently. Go forward and 
    head through the door on the left. Head down the passage until you see a 
    couple Metal-Heads, defeat them, and continue forward into the next part of
    the room.
    In the next part of the room, you will see two Metal-Head beasts, defeat those
    and continue to the end of the room. You should see a web covering the door
    and a little flame a little to the right of that. Face the little flame, and
    press and hold Circle to initiate your flamethrower. After you have your 
    flamethrower in use, face the web and it will burn allowing access to the next
    In the next room, you can defeat the two baddies on the floor then go back to
    where you came from in the previous room. Don't go into the previous room, 
    just go on that platform that you would see going into this room and look
    a little to the left. You will see another platform so what you do is jump
    off of the current platform that you are on and press and hold Circle to 
    hover to the next platform. On that platform look off the ledge and in the
    air you will see a floating green circle which is a thing to fill up your
    Exterminator Spray tank. Jump off the ledge and Hover to the next platform
    while hitting that green pellet to increase your air time. Defeat the baddie
    and go to the left in the small passage which you have to press Triangle in
    advance for. Continue on to the next room.
    Jump onto the floor in the next room and three baddies will fall down and try
    to hurt you. Just defeat them and look around the room for that little flame
    that you can burn the web with. Do so, and continue on. In that next room 
    after the web, just jump to the next platform and then you will see two
    pipes in front of you that are spewing flame out. What you do is Hover and use
    the flames to get an extra boost to get to the next platform. Go ahead until 
    you reach three baddies. Defeat them and continue to the next room while 
    avoiding the steam being emitted from the pipes you should see after beating
    the baddies. You should see another flame and web and light the web up to 
    In this long passage, make your way through using Hover and defeating baddies
    along the way. You can collect Precursor Orbs that are placed in the level if
    you want to but that isn't required. After the long passage, you should run 
    into another couple baddies and you know what to do. Go right and you will
    enter another room. Continue through the room until you reach another web.
    Go through the web and you will see a bigger baddie than what you normally
    see. What you can do is just flame him too, it is much easier to do so. 
    Continue through the room until you see a big wall. Face the wall and jump to
    it to climb it. Swat the baddies on the wall and get to the top. When you
    get there, you will spot a big baddie and all you can do is just swat him to
    death. To do this effectively, get behind him and swat him. It will lower
    your chance of damage with this type of critter. Go through the steam, and 
    when you get to the green pellet, be cautious and walk slowly until the floor
    collapses in front of you. Then all you have to do is Hover over it and you 
    are in front of another baddie. Try to defeat him and continue through the 
    steam. To get through the steam this time, time it correctly like after the
    steam stops, Jump and Hover.
    In the next part, you will take a right and you will see two other steam vents
    which you get past by jumping over them at the right time. Continue on, and 
    you will see four baddies: three small ones and one big one. Skip past them
    and start up your flamethrower to burn them up. That is the easy way to do it
    so I recommend you do that. Light up your Flamethrower and get past the steam
    to light up the web. Continue on.
    Another Long Passage, just go through and if there is a place where you have 
    to Hover through the green pellets, then do so. Also, when you see something
    that looks like you have to crawl through it, press Triangle and do so. At the
    end of the passage, equip your Flamethrower and flame the baddie and the web 
    to get through. In the next part, jump to the platform on the left and take
    your time to Hover past the steam. Continue on.
    Head through the web, and you will be in a new room. Jump on the platforms
    using hover and the flame vents to boost you up. If you miss a flame vent, you
    will most likely fall down so get back up and try again. Once you get to the
    top, you have to go through the vent and you will find yourself in another
    room. Jump to the bottom of that room and head through the second vent.
    In the next room, head to the ground level in the room and head straight 
    towards an object which is a minigame. Activate it and play the minigame.
    What you have to do is press buttons on the D-pad and the Shape buttons which
    coordinate with the red Circle on the screen. If you have played Jak II, then
    it is very similar to the Metal Head Smash game in the Hip Hog Heaven. After
    you defeat this minigame, head to the bottom level of the room and through the
    door. Continue through this passage and you will be redirected to the main 
    Congratulations, you beat the first level in the Daxter demo.
    D.b. - Daxter's Dream Sequence (mini-game)
    Daxter's Dream Sequence is a minigame where you face a bunch of Gol copies in
    a matrix like fight scene. What you do is match the button up with the button
    that appears on the ground and when it turns green, hit that button it said to
    hit. If you miss, you take two bars of damage and once you beat the 40 Gols
    that appear on the screen, you have beat the demo.
    Congratulations, you have beaten the Daxter demo for PSP!
