Goku Makai Mura (Ultimate Ghosts And Goblins)

Before we start: 

I'm not here to hold your hand. Work your way through the game itself, 
remember the maps. DON'T ask me for a walkthrough. I'm not going to 
respond. If you have anything I'm missing, tell me and I'll update it.
DO NOT ASK ME FOR STRATEGIES. There's a reason why this game is 
supposed to be hard - no one's supossed to tell you when to jump.
Understood? Good.
