     Welcome to my Wonder Boy in Monster World guide. I haven't ever
tried to write a guide for a platform/action/RPG/adventure game.
However, when I played (or actually re-played) this game, I found it
rocks! Wonder Boy series are of the best games on the SMS beside the
other great titles such as Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Phantasy Star,
and Sonic the Hedgehog series.

     I haven't finished the guide for now, I'll update it every few
days. Anyway, if you have something to contribute, comment, question,
or correction, please e-mail me.

    |B. What This Guide Covers|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Mainly, this guide covers all the game step-by-step just to make
sure you beat it 100%. This guide doesn't have the basics section,
that's because the game's too easy to understand, and I will tell you
everything you can do (such as telling you how to cast a magic) in
the Walkthrough section below.

______________________________________________________________________

     __________________

II. WALKTHROUGH
______________________________________________________________________


Note: I have played the game just once while I was writing the guide,
      so there may be some variations.

______________________________________________________________________

     ________
    |A. Story|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Monster World was once a peaceful region. Then, the peace was
shattered by an invading army of monsters. A young man named Shion
vowed to defeat them and make his land peaceful once again. The
adventure upon which you're about to embark is as related by Dragon,
the storyteller.

______________________________________________________________________

     ________________
    |B. Way to Alsedo|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Once you gain the control of Shion, the main character, enter the
menu, and equip the Firestorm magic (the word Set will be shown). To
use the magic while playing, press the Up and the attack buttons at
the same time, note that you can only do this three times, but when
you rest somewhere, you can do this another three times. You can
upgrade your magic through the game, so just wait for that. Now move
to the next screen.

     Walk and you may notice something written near a tree. If you
read it (by pressing Up), you'll know that the Princess has been
kidnapped from the Purapril Castle, and you'd better take caution.
Jump on the moving rock and go on the stem to the left. Stand on its
edge (the left not the right one), and jump 10 times. Each time you
jump, you'll be given 4 Gold pieces, so 4 x 10 = 40 Gold pieces. Now,
go to the right and kill the small monster (you'll get 1 Gold piece).
Kill the other or avoid it. Continue and kill the blue monster
(therefore, you'll get 2 Gold pieces). Move the next screen.

     You'll see Purapril Castle with a guard near its gate. He won't
let you in for some reasons. Continue walking forward and go to next
screen.

     The music here is different. You can kill the tiny monster to get
5 Gold pieces. Continue and you should either jump or walk on the
shallow water. Anyway, continue and kill the small monster to get
another 5 Gold pieces. Continue walking and you'll see a scorpion.
You'll get a small Heart that will refill your health. Avoiding the
other scorpion is better than killing it because the first one will
spawn again. Keep walking to the next screen.

______________________________________________________________________

     ____________________________
    |C. Alsedo, the Fairy Village|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     In this village, there are some mushroom monsters. Kill the small
one at first, it will give you 9 Gold pieces. Go through the door by
using the Up button. 

     Here is an inn. You can sleep if you want, but that will cost you
10 Gold pieces (if you don't have 10 Gold pieces, you can sleep for
free). Sleeping will cause a full refill to your health. After you
agree to sleep, you'll be given a password so that you don't have to
start from the beginning every time. Make sure you write it down
somewhere. Now get outside the inn (by using the Down button).
 
     Be careful of the small mushroom monsters. If you kill it, you'll
get another 9 Gold pieces (so you know now the use of them). Continue
and jump. There is a big mushroom monster. If you kill it, you'll get
7 Gold pieces. Go through the Kishera's door, it's an equipments shop.

     The shop's owner sells: Leather Armor for 30, and Wood Shield
for 50 Gold pieces. If you enough Gold pieces, buy them. However, if
you don't have 80 Gold pieces, go and get some then return (stand near
the inn's door, and kill the small mushroom monster every time it
spawns). Once you buy them, equip them (you'll gain a DP which is
short for Defense Point). Shion will be a bit different. Now go
outside the shop.

     Continue (past the two statues), kill the other big mushroom
monster, and get 7 Gold pieces. Go inside the house. Inside the house,
Sonia, a resident, is requesting help from you. She wants you to see
Queen Eleanora and help her. She also tells you about a secret way to
reach the Queen. Now, get outside.

     Return to the two statues, and stand between them. Press Up, and
you'll be transported to another place. Walk to the right and you'll
see Queen Eleanora. She will tell you that there is a Cave near the
village which the monsters come from. And, they need help (understand
it yourself). Now, return the same way to the village.

     Kill the big mushroom monster again to gain 7 Gold pieces. Return
to Sonia in her house. Talk to Sonia, and she will tell you that you
need an Ocarina to open the doors in the Cave. However, this Ocarina
is somewhere inside the Cave itself. So, you need to go to that Cave.
Get outside. Continue your way, and go through the last shop,
Felissimo, an items shop.

     In this shop you can find: Leather Boots for 30, and Healing
Potion for 10 Gold pieces. Buy and equip the Leather Boots (you'll
gain a SP which is short for Speed Point). Also, equip the Healing
Potion from the Item menu (the word Set will be shown). When equipping
items, you can use them while playing by press the Up and Jump buttons
at the same time (items aren't like magic, they are so limited). Now
exit, and move to the next screen.

______________________________________________________________________

     ___________
    |D. The Cave|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     You aren't so far away the village. You'll see 3 big mushroom
monsters. Kill them one after another, and get the 21 Gold pieces. Now
move to the next screen.

     In the Cave, kill the 2 big mushroom monsters, or avoid them. Go
down, and get the yellow thing; it's the Ocarina, by pressing Up.
Equip the Ocarina item, stand on the rectangle (that has some music
signs), and use it (by pressing Up and jump buttons). Nothing will
happen, because the melody is incorrect. Oh well, return to the
village, and go inside Sonia's house (killing every body on your way).

     Talk to Sonia, she will tell you the correct melodies. Now, get
outside, and go back again to the Cave (killing every body on your
way).

     Use the Ocarina again (at the same place), and when the phrase
says "Shion uses the Ocarina," press: attack, Up, attack, Up, attack,
jump, and attack buttons. This will break the seal of the first door.
Now, go through the door (that was sealed).

     Avoid or kill the 2 big mushroom monsters here, go down the
stairs, and stand on another music pad. Use the Ocarina, and press:
Up, attack, jump, attack, jump, Up, and attack buttons. This will
break the seal of the second door. Go through the door (that was
sealed).

     Continue, killing the big mushroom monster, and jump to the
treasure. Press Up to open it, and you'll get a Heart Case, and a
Heart. So now you have 4 Hearts instead of 3 (this is a good thing,
isn't it?). Continue your way to the left side, and be careful of the
spikes. On the music pad, use the Ocarina for the last time. Press:
Up, jump, jump, Up, attack, Up, and attack buttons. This will break
the seal of the last door. Now, go through the door (that was sealed).
Continue walking to the left side, and before you go through the door,
prepare yourself. Equip the Firestorm, and the Healing Potion. If you
don't have them, this isn't a big problem. Now go through the door.
It's time for your first boss battle in the game...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 1: THE MUSHROOM SPIRIT
===========================

     This boss shouldn't be hard if you have prepared yourself. First
of all, use all the Firestorms that you have (stay on the left). Now
it's time to attack! You may notice that the Mushroom Spirit moves
then stops. When it stops, go and attack it once, then quickly return
to the left side. Do this until it dies. Use the Healing Potion when
necessary to refill a Heart. When you beat it, quickly get the Gold
pieces first then the ones in white bags.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


     After defeating it, open the treasure, and take the Firestorm
(WOW! You can have six Firestorms now). Now exit from the only door.
Follow the useless sign --> and get outside the Cave.

______________________________________________________________________

     ______________________
    |E. Returning to Alsedo|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     So, you returned near the village. Head to the village (don't
worry, no more mushroom monsters), and if you have used the Healing
Potion, buy one from Felissimo.

     I suggest you to go to the inn to rest at this time (make sure
you write down the password in a piece of paper or a notebook). Now
get outside the inn.

     Go inside Sonia's house and talk to her. She will thank you for
helping them. Get outside, and go to the secret place (between the two
statues).

     Talk to Queen Eleanora; she will thank you, too, and will tell
you to go inside the Large Tree in order to reach Purapril Castle.
Move on and go to the left. Go inside the Large Tree.

______________________________________________________________________

     _________________
    |F. The Large Tree|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     In here, kill the red bomb to get 12 Gold pieces (cool!). Kill or
avoid the blue bat (you'll get 11 Gold pieces if you kill it). Move on
and kill the other blue bat and red bomb. After killing it, continue
your way, and kill the other red bomb, and the three blue bats. Go to
the next screen.

     Kill the two blue bats and red bomb that are here. Keep going on
and kill the other three red bombs. You'll see a stair-like. Don't go
down it, just continue to the left (to the next screen).

     I recommend you to avoid the monsters here, as it's hard to kill
them all without having injured. Keep going on, and you'll see another
stair-like. Do the same; avoid it and go on the left to the next
screen.

     New enemies are here! There is a guard near the prison. He will
be so tough if you don't know the trick that will kill him. Just hold
the Down button, and attack him on his leg (as long as he doesn't have
a shield on his legs). After several times, he will die, and the
prison will be opened. Go inside it, and the Princess (that was
kidnapped) will tell you to get to the Castle's hall through the door.
Go through it.

______________________________________________________________________

     __________________
    |G. Purapril Castle|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     So, you've finally got to the Castle. Jump to the left, then to
the right (above the door that you've just come from). Now jump, and
go through the door.

     Go to the right, and to the next screen. Continue walking to the
right, and Princess Shiela of Purapril will thank you for rescuing
her. She will also tell you about the village of Lilypad. Now go to
the left and to the previous screen. Now, go through the door that
you've come from. Go down, and to the left now.

______________________________________________________________________

     _____________________________
    |H. Purapril, the Aqua Capital|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     In this town, head to the inn. Rest for 10 Gold pieces and don't
forget the password. Now get out. Go to the next shop, Bacchus, a
weapons shop. Buy the Knight Sword for 250 Gold pieces (you should
have much more than that). Equip it and you'll get 2 APs (Attack
Points). Now get out.

     The next shop is closed, so go down the ladder. Move to the right
(don't go down), and go to the items shop, Bacchus (the same name).
There, you can find: Elixir for 3,000, HealAll for 5,000, and HealMore
for 200* Gold pieces. Buy whatever you can afford (Elixir and HealAll
are so expensive), and then get outside.
______________________________________________________________________
* You can buy them if you want by collecting the Gold pieces from the
  next monsters zone.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     If you have bought HealAll or HealMore, equip them. Go to the
left and to the down now. Go to the left and to the next screen.

______________________________________________________________________

     _________________
    |I. Way to Lilypad|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     A jungle-like path. This place is a bit hard. Monsters here will
give you MUCH Gold pieces! Therefore, if you want to buy the expensive
items at Bacchus, you can easily get Gold pieces from here. Once you
die, you'll be returned to the inn (as you should know already). Go
back to this place and get more Gold pieces. When you die again,
return to this place. Do this until you get more than 8,000 Gold
pieces. And finally, buy the wanted items.

     As you walk to the left, you'll see a lake. Be careful! Unlike
the previous lake (when you're in your way to Alsedo), this lake can
even kill you, so don't jump down. Once you are down for some reason,
try to return from where you've come from quickly if you have the
chance to do that. Otherwise, you'll die. Fortunately, there is a
thing that can take you to the other side. Stand above it carefully,
and jump on green thing HOLDING THE UP BUTTON. You'll climb it. Now
climb it as far as you can, and then press the Left button HOLDING THE
UP BUTTON. Do the same twice, and remember, any mistake will kill you.
Finally, land on the other side, and kill the blue ghost-like monster*
(you'll gain 65 Gold pieces). Kill the other one on the other side of
the stem.
______________________________________________________________________
* If you want to collect Gold pieces, this is a good place.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Now, another thing takes you to the green plants. Climb them the
same way as you did, and get to the other side. Stand on the stem, and
kill the blue monster. More 4 plants to climb. Stand on the brown
thing, jump, jump, and jump to the last one. Jump on the moving thing,
climb the plants, and get to the other side. Kill the two blue
monsters quickly, and go near the happy stem. There is a new enemy. I
prefer killing him using a Firestorm. You'll get 115 Gold pieces*.
______________________________________________________________________
* Here's another good place to collect Gold pieces.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Continue your way to the lake. This is a bad jump that may loose
your health. Stand on the height, and jump directly to the brown thing
when the spider* gets away.
______________________________________________________________________
* When you kill a spider, you'll get 64 Gold pieces.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Keep jumping until you reach the other side. Go to the next
screen.

______________________________________________________________________

     _____________________________
    |J. Lilypad, the Dwarf Village|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Here, kill the blue monster, and the other one in the other
side. You'll see something like a temple. Leave it and go to the stem.
There is a locked door, so leave it. Go on, and go through the first
door.

     In this items shop, Drapnell Sunday Goods, you can find: HealMore
for 200, and a magic, Shield for 500 Gold pieces. Get outside after
buying the magic and the item.

     Move to the next shop, Gooningle's, a weapons shop. You can find
Steel Armor for 800 Gold pieces. If you don't have enough Gold pieces,
get outside, and kill the blue monsters several times (you'll get what
you want in no time). Buy the armor, equip it (you'll gain a new DP),
and get outside.

     Move to the inn, and rest for 10 Gold pieces. Write the password
in your notebook, and get outside. Move to the house near the inn. You
will see an old man. Talk to him, and he will tell you that you should
meet Poseidon. He also will tell you where he is, and how you can get
to him. Now, get outside the house.

     Continue your way to the left. Kill the monster, and move to the
lake. Jump on the moving wood, and climb the plants as you did before.
Climb them one after another and get to the other side. Kill the
monster, and continue your way to the stem. Jump on it and go to the
other side. There is something that you can push. Jump on it and it
will move. While moving, try to jump to the treasure above. You'll get
another magic, the Power! To return, you have to jump on it again, and
then on the stem. Return the same way killing all the bad guys, and
climbing all the annoying plants to the inn if you want to get your
new password, or keep going to the right until you reach the temple.
It's now opened. Enter it.

     In this strange place, go to the left, and go down the ladder.
Wait until the rock's moving then run as quickly as you can after it.
When you are down for a while, continue running to the left. Now there
are two paths; to the left, and to down. Go down. Keep walking to the
right, and up the ladder. Go to the next screen to the right.

     Continue walking to the right and up yet another ladder. Now, go
left. Simply, get the treasure. It contains another magic; Return. Now
go to the next screen on the left.

     You'll return to where you started from. Do the same thing by
going down the ladder and be careful of the rock. Reach the two paths,
and go to the left now (the next screen).

     Jump down, and up the ladder (be careful of the arrows from both
sides). Note: you can stop every two arrows then continue going up).
Go through the only door. Now, you'll be down somehow. Go to the right
and to the next screen.

     Up the little stairs-like (to the right side), a get the
treasure's content; a Heart Case (you have 5 now). Go down the little
stairs-like, and get to the left part. Jump, jump and jump to the
right until you get above the treasure. Go to the next screen.

     Go to the right, and then jump down. Quickly, run to the left so
that the arrows don't hurt you. Here are another kind of arrows. Stop
after you pass each one if you don't wanna get hurt. Move to the left
(to the next screen).

     Move to the left and get the treasure's content; a Heart. It will
completely refill your lost energy. Return to the new kind of arrows
in the previous screen.

     Pass the moving arrows. WITHOUT STOP, pass all the arrows and
stop near the new kind of arrows. Pass both of them at one time, and
jump down (be careful of the arrow). Continue to the right, and equip
the HealMore, and any magic except Return. Now, jump down. It's time
for a new boss battle...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 2: GRAGG GLAGG
===================

     This boss is not so hard. There are two parts of it; one on the
right, and the other on the left of course. As you fall down, quickly
jump on the center. You'll notice that both sides send rocks one after
another, so here's how you kill them: first of all, use the Firestorms
if you've equipped them. If you have equipped Shield or Power, then
use them now, and quickly, go and attack. Note: if you've equipped the
Shield, be careful of the time, as it may not be too much you'll turn
invincible. Way of attack: once the rock is down, go and attack the
side that the rock's just fallen from. Attack (twice if you want), and
then return and jump on the center. Do this 'till they die. Use
HealMore when necessary. When you beat them, quickly get the Gold
pieces first then the ones in white bags.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


     After you defeat them, open the treasure, you'll receive a new
weapon; Trident. Equip it (you'll gain another AP, but you'll loose a
DP), and Shion will look different! Get outside the temple.

     You'll return to the entrance of the temple. Note: it's better to
rest at the inn and get your password now. Go to the old man's house.
He will tell you that you are now able to swim; just find this
Poseidon. Now, all you have to do is to return to Purapril.
Fortunately, there is a shortcut way for this route. Go through the
locked door that is between the entrance of the temple and the items
shop.

     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     I wanna know why we have got through all the way to here if there
is a door that leads us to here? OK, thanks to it, we are able to
return in no time.

     Now, up the nearest ladder to you, and if you have much Gold
pieces, buy the items available at the items shop here. Up the other
ladder in the left, get out of the town from the right, and get out of
the Castle from the door on the right to return to the Large Tree.

______________________________________________________________________

     ______________________________
    |L. Returning to the Large Tree|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Move to the right and to the next screen. Continue moving to the
right, and go down to the water. You'll see Shion swims for the first
time. Move on, and use the jump button to swim on the up direction.

     You'll be in a place that you have been to, but it's not the
same, it looks like that. Be careful of the scorpion, you'll get 4
Gold pieces if you kill one of them. Keep jumping to the right until
you reach a small house. Enter it.

     There is a woman inside the house. Talk to her, and she will tell
you that if you have the Marmaid's Tears, you'll find the shrine
underwater. Also, she will tell you that if you give her the Ocarina,
she will tell you where the Marmaid's Tears are. Agree. She will tell
you that you'll find them from a hidden door amidst two palm trees.
Now, get outside.

     Continue walking to the right, and you'll see the small monsters
that you've seen before. You'll also see the two palm trees. Stand
between them (just like the two statues), and press Up. Get the
treasure's content; Marmaid's Tears! Now return between the two palm
trees (press Up near the treasure), and go to the woman's house. Talk
to her, and she will tell you that the shrine will appear once you
have the Marmaid's Tears. Get outside.

     Now go inside the water after the house (to the right). Swim to
the left killing the big fish (you'll get 38 Gold pieces). Keep
swimming until you see a small hole. Get inside it. Kill all the fish
there (you'll get 41 Gold pieces when you kill the small one), and
then go down. On the right, there's a treasure. It contains yet
another Heart Case. Keep going on and kill the fish on your way. Keep
going on to the right, and go to the next screen.

     You'll see a giant man. Talk to him. He will tell you that you've
finally come, and you are the legendary hero! Also, he will tell you
that the Elder Dragon is waiting for you in a Pyramid beyond the
Maugham Desert. Finally, he will give you Desert Boots. As long as you
can't wear it underwater, wait until you are on a land. Now return.
Just a note: this giant man is Poseidon.

     Return all the way to the land. Equip the Desert Boots (this will
add a new SP). Go inside the woman's house. Talk to her. She will tell
you that she is the daughter of this Poseidon. Now get outside.

     Go to the first part of the sea. Return to the Large Tree. Kill
the red bomb. Go up, then left. Get out of the Large Tree on the left.
Just to remind you, if you used your items, buy some now. Simply,
jump to the right (make sure you equip the Desert Boots before), then
go to the next screen.

______________________________________________________________________

     _________________
    |M. Maugham Desert|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Once you are in the desert, go to the right, and kill the red
monster. Continue (be careful! When the monster spawn again, it shoots
a fire ball), and kill two more red monsters. Go to the next screen.

     In this place, there are two more red monsters to kill. There is
a hole to get inside also. Go down. Just go down as far as you can,
killing the bats and red monsters, and go to the right. You'll see
another moving rock, jump on it (ignore the right side). When it
reaches you to the top, jump to the left, then to the right (to reach
the edge). Ignore the red monster down, just jump, jump, and jump
above it until you reach the right side. Go on and get the treasure,
it's a new magic, Quake. Now return the same way, but don't go on the
moving rock. Instead, go to the left. You'll see the moving rock, so
jump on it. Jump, jump, and jump until you reach the first moving
rock. Jump on it, and jump outside the hole.

     Go to the next screen (to the right). Kill the red monsters, and
go down the ladder. Now if you fell down, up the ladder. You'll see a
treasure a bit far away to reach. However, just like what you did in
your way to Lilypad, up the ladder a few feet, then press Left. Kill
the bat, and get the treasure, an upgrade to the Shield magic (now you
can cast 6 of it). Go down, then down the water (ignore the door for
now).

     Keep going down while swimming, and be careful of the spikes down
on the bottom, go left, and get the treasure. It contains a yet
another Heart Case. Now return to the ignored door, and get through it
instantly.

     There are two small mummies here. It's better if you kill them.
Get the treasure (Heart), and your health will be restored. Get
outside. Now just get outside all of this by going up the ladders.
Once you are up, go to the right.

______________________________________________________________________

     ______________
    |N. The Pyramid|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     A mummy will welcome you, so quickly, kill it. From your
position, jump and, using the rope, go up to the next screen. Keep
going up, but be careful of the arrows. Remember, once you fall down,
you will restart all the way again, so make sure you stop until the
arrow is shot. Go to the next screens.

     Once you are up, go to the right. Jump WHEN you are stuck to the
right wall, because there are some spikes exactly under ya. When you
are down, be careful of the ghost, and go to the left* (there will be
a new way to reach the left part).
______________________________________________________________________
* While I was playing this place again, I noticed that you have to
  jump on the gray part (cannot be seen very well), then the link will
  become.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Now jump down. Go to the left, and get the treasure's content, a
Heart that will refill your health. Return, and go to the right
(another new way) with the caution of the ghost. Keep going right, and
jump (there ARE some other spikes down there). Then, go to the left.
Jump to where the mummy is and kill it, then* jump down to the left.
______________________________________________________________________
* I have restarted all the way to here for something I missed at this
  point. Before you jump, make sure that you are being stuck to the
  left wall before you go to the next screen, and press Left after you
  go down. If you failed in doing this, sorry, you don't have a chance
  to do it again, but only if you die and re-enter the Maugham Desert,
  and then you do what I have just mentioned.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     If you did what was in the note before, get the treasure that
contains the last Heart Case, so they are eight now. Go down to the
next screen.

     At this point, you should prepare yourself. I equipped the Shield
and HealMore just in case. Go to the door in the right (after moving
all the way killing the three mummies), and it's boss time...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 3: THE TYRANT DRAGON
=========================

     From its appearance, this boss remind me with DarkTyrannomon, it
is a digimon if you are a fan of them. Simply, use the Shield a number
of times, then just keep hitting it on its face. It's that simple, but
if you don't have the Shield, it may be a lot harder, because every-
time you get a hit, a whole Heart will be lost! Anyway, just use the
Shield as I said, and you'll win directly. Get all the bags and coins.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


     After you finish, don't go outside that quickly, open the
treasure, and you'll get an item that will surely have a good use, it
is Sacred Flame. Also, you'll get the last magic, Thunder, finally.
Get outside now.

     Go to the other door. Go up by using the rope, then to the right,
and go up the other rope, and finally to the right. I know it makes it
boring, but there still are a rope, and another fourth one! Just make
it and go up anyways.

     In this strange place, stand on the gray rectangle that has a red
star on it, and press Up. In my opinion, this is a hard place. Head to
the right killing all the red monsters, and avoiding the rocks. After
this long, hard way, you'll reach Begonia.

______________________________________________________________________

     ______________________________
    |O. Begonia, the Dragon Village|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     So, Poseidon told you about that dragon, maybe it is here. Now,
go through the first door. You'll return "somehow" to Purapril. Go to
the inn, for rest and to get a new password, then get outside it.

     If you have 10,500+ Gold pieces, then go to the now-opened new
weapons shop (remember that one at the closed one that shows a
message? It's after Bacchus, the weapons shop). If you don't have
enough Gold pieces, go and collect some.

     The shop's name is Wanderer, and there, you can buy: Flame
Shield* for 8,000, and Excalibur** for 2,500 Gold pieces. Note that
these two equipments so advanced, because only one weapon and one
shield are better than them in this game. And, that's why (as I think)
they are as costly as they are. Just to remind you, equip them. Now,
return to Begonia.
______________________________________________________________________
*  You don't have to buy this costly shield now.
** With this weapon, your AP will be full!
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     So, we haven't checked out the village yet, and here we go. Go on
the right side of the ladder, and get through the weapons shop
(so, another one). If you don't have 12,000+ Gold pieces (and I'm sure
you don't), then collect them, then buy what this shop sells. This
weapon shop sells: Steel Shield* for 2,000, and Flame Armor* for
10,000 Gold pieces. Flame Armor is the second best armor in the game.
After you finish your business here, get outside. You _might_ have a
full DP if you equip the Flame Armor now.
______________________________________________________________________
*  If you have bought the Flame Shield from Wanderer, there is no need
   to buy this, because Flame Shield is much better.
** You don't have to buy this armor now.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Now get down the ladder, and go to the inn (to the left of the
ladder) if you want to get a new password, are if you want to rest
after being hit by the enemies (when collecting the Gold pieces).

     If you want, there is an item shop that sells HealMore (for 200
Gold pieces) down to the left. Go and buy if you want. Now go to the
right of the ladder (just under the weapons shop). And, get inside the
door above.

     A blacksmith (yellow dragon) tells you that the Elder Dragon is
awaiting for you, so go to it. It is under the door where the
blacksmith is. So, when you talk to it, it will give you another
mission to do. It says that there is an Axe of Ancients hidden in Ice
World. And if you want to go to there, you have to have Special
Bracelet that it will give you. Now, get outside of the room, and go
to Purapril from the shortcut. Go all the way to the Large Tree for
the last time.

______________________________________________________________________

     ___________________________________
    |P. The Large Tree for the Last Time|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     I shouldn't guide you too much here, as long as this is the third
time we come to this place. Just pass the first two screens killing
everyone in your way.

     And, in the third one, jump down. Go right, down, and left. There
are two bats and a door, after killing the bats, go through the door.
You'll reach the Ice World.

______________________________________________________________________

     ____________
    |Q. Ice World|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     As you walk, the Special Bracelet will start glowing
automatically. And, the seal will be broken now. Walk down the first
two long screens killing the penguins, and you'll reach an icy village
in this totally snowy world.

     Here, enter the items shop (the first door). They sell Ceramic
Boots for 4,000 Gold pieces*, the second best boots out there! After
having equipped, go out.
______________________________________________________________________
* It won't be a big problem if you don't have enough Gold pieces; the
  penguins there are rich!
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Now go to the other door to the right, it's Labyrinth, a weapons
shop. They sell: Knight Shield for 3,500, and Knight Armor for 5,000
Gold pieces. If you have bought the Flame Shield, there is no need to
buy the Knight Shield. Also, if you have bought the Flame Armor, there
will be no need to have the Knight Armor. After equipping whatever you
have bought, go out.

     Move to the next door; there's an inn (just to notice you, there
is a boss waiting for you). Now, go outside, and to the next screen.
Here, kill the penguins, and get to the next screen.

     In this screen, there is a moving object that can deliver you to
the other side, so jump on it. Then, jump on the other one (and try
not to fall on the spikes). When you are walking on the bridge, get
prepared! A boss is waiting (I told you before). I equipped the
HealMore, and the Firestorm.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 4: THE ICE BOMBER
======================

     It's a new kind of bosses. As you start, use all your Firestorms.
When you don't have anymore, it's the attack time. Try to stand under
the Ice Bomber's tail, avoiding the snowy things that it shoots from
its mouth, and when it shoots them, hit it ONCE, no more. Then,
quickly, stay under its tail again. Do this until it dies (it won't
take too much time). For those who have equipped the Shield, they can
hit it as much as they want, but I prefer the previous strategy. Don't
forget the Gold pieces.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


     Open the treasure and get the Axe of Ancients! So, you should
know what to do next, return to the Elder Dragon. Go through the gray
door.

     Go all the way left, killing all the penguins of course (and
passing all the screens and the village*), and return to the Large
Tree.
______________________________________________________________________
* You can get a password and rest in the inn if you want to.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Go right, up, left, up, left to the next screen (killing the
bats). Pass the screen to the left, and get through the last door in
the Large Tree. Go left, and left (in the village of Purapril). Go
down, right, and get to the door above.

______________________________________________________________________

     _______________________
    |R. Returning to Begoina|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     In Begonia, go to the inn if you want, then, go to the Elder
Dragon. It will tell you that that blacksmith is gonna give you all
the details on how to get hands on the Axe of Ancients, since
blacksmithing isn't its specialization. So, get outside that room.

     Go to the blacksmith above. Talk to it. It'll create a sword by
the Axe of Ancients that you've found, however, as it says, it'll take
some time. It will tell you to go and talk to the Elder Dragon while
it is making your sword. Get outside.

     Move down, and get inside the Elder Dragon's room. Talk to the
Elder Dragon. It'll tell you that after you get the sword from the
blacksmith, you should go to the bell tower in Purapril Castle. It'll
also tell you how to use the sword. The sword should be ready now, so
get outside.

     Return to the blacksmith. Talk to it, and it will give you your
new sword, Legendary Sword (a.k.a. Legend Sword), the BEST weapon out
there! After equipping it, you'll have 6 APs (full now), so your
attacks will be the strongest. Get outside the blacksmith place.

     Will it be the last time you are in Begoina? Even I don't know,
because I haven't beaten the game before I write this. Now, all you
have to do is to go to the bell tower in Purapril Castle, by heading
to the shortcut.

     Now that you should know your way to the Castle, so no need to
repeat it for the fifth time (is it). Just to remind you, the Castle's
gate is above the Large Tree's last door (from outside). Go left now.
Keep going left until you reach the bell tower. Stand under the bell,
and press Up.

______________________________________________________________________

     ___________________________
    |S. Sky Over Purapril Castle|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     A strange place actually. Go right, jumping over the clouds*.
When there are no clouds to the right, don't jump to there now, jump
on the left clouds instead. Keep jumping, and the last cloud does have
a treasure on it. It contains a Heart that will refill you energy. Now
go to the last cloud on the right, and jump over the brown edge, go to
the right, and you'll see the classic type of the blue bats. Either
avoid, or kill them. Go to the next screen.
______________________________________________________________________
* Don't worry, if you fall, you'll return down near the bell tower.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Watch out for new enemies! Go right. Kill that skeleton knight
(umm... isn't it looks like Shion). Now, jump and climb those chains.
Go left and kill the other skeleton knight. Climb the other chains,
and go right. Kill the last skeleton knight, and climb the last chains
in this screen.

     Keep climbing up until you can't climb anymore, then press Left
to jump on the left edge. Go left, killing all the bats on your way,
and stand on the chains. Push Down to continue your way, go right, go
down another chains, and go left killing the bats. Climb the last
chains in the screen.

     Keep going up, and then, go right. In this place, there are more
bats, so, I don't have to warn you each time a bat gets near you. Fall
down in the first hole (or go down the chains if you want to), and get
the treasure, you'll get the best shield in this game, Legendary*
Shield. After equipping it, go up. Go right, fall down in the other
hole, and get the treasure's content; the best boots, Legendary*
Boots. Make sure to equip it. At this point, my AP and SP are full. Go
up, right, and climb the chains. Go right, killing the bats on your
way, and climb those last chains in this screen, then go through the
wooden door. Go to the other door (the one on the left), and climb
those bad chains.
______________________________________________________________________
* Legendary Shield, and Legendary Boots are also known as Legend
  Shield, and Legend Boots.
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
     Go right, and kill the knight skeletons. Climb another chains,
and go left. Kill the bat, and go up. Jump, jump, and jump with
caution just (A.) not to fall, and (B.) not to make the bat hit you.
Just try not to fall. When you reach the door, prepare yourself (I
hope you are in a good healthy situation or you have a healer). I
equipped Shield, and HealMore. Now, go through the door.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 5: THE ALMIGHTY DEMON KING
===============================

     The only bad thing before reaching this boss is that you may have
low energy, so it's better to get healed now, and if you have Shields,
it won't be a problem. First of all, use the Shield. Attack it, then,
use the Shield if you're nearly be oblique again that is. Use the
healing items if you have any when necessary. Do this until it dies.
Note that if you don't kill it quickly, it will send a flying thing
looks like its face, so watch out. For those who haven't got any
Shields, you still can beat it, but in hardly way. Make sure to hit it
on its face in either cases. Get all the Gold pieces before they
disappear.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


     Open the treasure, and get the best armor as I guessed, Legendary
Armor! Go through the only door. When you equip the armor, you'll have
max status, however, before, you'll see a strange thing flying over
the sky far away.

     You'll be in such a strange place... even much stranger than the
previous, yeah very strange. Go right, and through the door. Here are
some small aliens. They don't attack at all, and when you kill them,
you'll get a small Heart that'll restore some of the health, so they
are cool! However, the programmers of the game didn't made that for
free; you'll know why sooner. Go down. Kill the aliens, and make SURE
that your health is full. Prepare yourself, it's boss time, but you'll
face a previous boss, the Tyrant Dragon!

     No need to give you any strategies, as long as you have killed it
before. I used 1 Shield, but you don't have to use any, because you
can kill it, then restore your health. After killing it and getting
the Gold pieces, the treasure has a Heart that will refill the health.
Go out.

     Now return, killing the aliens, and getting all the Hearts. Then,
go up, and kill the rest of them. Prepare yourself again, you'll
encounter the Ice Bomber again...

     Remember how to kill it? Stand under its tail, then, after it
shoots two snowy things, hit it once. You'll also get a treasure after
getting the Gold pieces. The treasure contains another Heart for
health. Now get outside.

     Go along the way left killing the aliens, and go through the door
that you've come to all of this from. Climb the long ladder, and yes
you bet, another boss, so prepare before entering, but now, it's the
final boss......


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THE FINAL BOSS
==============

     Without magic (except if you have any left) and with no way back,
you'll have to face this boss bravely! The boss doesn't do anything,
but the annoying things above that shoot laser beams are the hard part
of this boss. While avoiding the beams, look at the boss itself. When
it opens its eyes, go and hit it. The target here is the eye. That's
it, you've beaten the game, pal!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


     After killing the boss, enjoy the ending. Congratulations, you've
finally beaten Wonder Boy in Monster World! Officially!

    |B. Bosses Guide|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     In this part, you'll see the bosses strategies only.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 1: THE MUSHROOM SPIRIT
===========================

     This boss shouldn't be hard if you have prepared yourself. First
of all, use all the Firestorms that you have (stay on the left). Now
it's time to attack! You may notice that the Mushroom Spirit moves
then stops. When it stops, go and attack it once, then quickly return
to the left side. Do this until it dies. Use the Healing Potion when
necessary to refill a Heart. When you beat it, quickly get the Gold
pieces first then the ones in white bags.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 2: GRAGG GLAGG
===================

     This boss is not so hard. There are two parts of it; one on the
right, and the other on the left of course. As you fall down, quickly
jump on the center. You'll notice that both sides send rocks one after
another, so here's how you kill them: first of all, use the Firestorms
if you've equipped them. If you have equipped Shield or Power, then
use them now, and quickly, go and attack. Note: if you've equipped the
Shield, be careful of the time, as it may not be too much you'll turn
invincible. Way of attack: once the rock is down, go and attack the
side that the rock's just fallen from. Attack (twice if you want), and
then return and jump on the center. Do this 'till they die. Use
HealMore when necessary. When you beat them, quickly get the Gold
pieces first then the ones in white bags.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 3: THE TYRANT DRAGON
=========================

     From its appearance, this boss remind me with DarkTyrannomon, it
is a digimon if you are a fan of them. Simply, use the Shield a number
of times, then just keep hitting it on its face. It's that simple, but
if you don't have the Shield, it may be a lot harder, because every-
time you get a hit, a whole Heart will be lost! Anyway, just use the
Shield as I said, and you'll win directly. Get all the bags and coins.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 4: THE ICE BOMBER
======================

     It's a new kind of bosses. As you start, use all your Firestorms.
When you don't have anymore, it's the attack time. Try to stand under
the Ice Bomber's tail, avoiding the snowy things that it shoots from
its mouth, and when it shoots them, hit it ONCE, no more. Then,
quickly, stay under its tail again. Do this until it dies (it won't
take too much time). For those who have equipped the Shield, they can
hit it as much as they want, but I prefer the previous strategy. Don't
forget the Gold pieces.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BOSS 5: THE ALMIGHTY DEMON KING
===============================

     The only bad thing before reaching this boss is that you may have
low energy, so it's better to get healed now, and if you have Shields,
it won't be a problem. First of all, use the Shield. Attack it, then,
use the Shield if you're nearly be oblique again that is. Use the
healing items if you have any when necessary. Do this until it dies.
Note that if you don't kill it quickly, it will send a flying thing
looks like its face, so watch out. For those who haven't got any
Shields, you still can beat it, but in hardly way. Make sure to hit it
on its face in either cases. Get all the Gold pieces before they
disappear.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THE FINAL BOSS
==============

     Without magic (except if you have any left) and with no way back,
you'll have to face this boss bravely! The boss doesn't do anything,
but the annoying things above that shoot laser beams are the hard part
of this boss. While avoiding the beams, look at the boss itself. When
it opens its eyes, go and hit it. The target here is the eye. That's
it, you've beaten the game, pal!

    |H. Heart Cases|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Here are the eight Heart Cases locations... The game start with
three, so five left.


O  Heart Case #4:
   In the Cave, kill the 2 big mushroom monsters, or avoid them. Go
   down, and get the yellow thing; it's the Ocarina, by pressing Up.
   Equip the Ocarina item, stand on the rectangle (that has some music
   signs), and use it (by pressing Up and jump buttons). Nothing will
   happen, because the melody is incorrect. Oh well, return to the
   village, and go inside Sonia's house (killing every body on your
   way). Talk to Sonia, she will tell you the correct melodies. Now,
   get outside, and go back again to the Cave (killing every body on
   your way). Use the Ocarina again (at the same place), and when the
   phrase says "Shion uses the Ocarina," press: attack, Up, attack,
   Up, attack, jump, and attack buttons. This will break the seal of
   the first door. Now, go through the door (that was sealed). Avoid
   or kill the 2 big mushroom monsters here, go down the stairs, and
   stand on another music pad. Use the Ocarina, and press: Up, attack,
   jump, attack, jump, Up, and attack buttons. This will break the
   seal of the second door. Go through the door (that was sealed).
   Continue, killing the big mushroom monster, and jump to the
   treasure. Press Up to open it, and you'll get a Heart Case.

O  Heart Case #5:
   In Lilypad, kill the blue monster, and the other one in the other
   side. You'll see something like a temple. Leave it and go to the
   stem. There is a locked door, so leave it. Go on, and move to the
   house near the inn. You will see an old man. Talk to him, and he
   will tell you that you should meet Poseidon. He also will tell you
   where he is, and how you can get to him. Now, get outside the
   house. Continue your way to the left. Kill the monster, and move to
   the lake. Jump on the moving wood, and climb the plants as you did
   before. Climb them one after another and get to the other side.
   Kill the monster, and continue your way to the stem. Jump on it and
   go to the other side. There is something that you can push. Jump on
   it and it will move. While moving, try to jump to the treasure
   above. You'll get another magic, the Power! To return, you have to
   jump on it again, and then on the stem. Return the same way killing
   all the bad guys, and climbing all the annoying plants to the inn
   if you want to get your new password, or keep going to the right
   until you reach the temple. It's now opened. Enter it. In this
   strange place, go to the left, and go down the ladder. Wait until
   the rock's moving then run as quickly as you can after it. When you
   are down for a while, continue running to the left. Now there are
   two paths; to the left, and to down. Go down. Keep walking to the
   right, and up the ladder. Go to the next screen to the right.
   Continue walking to the right and up yet another ladder. Now, go
   left. Simply, get the treasure. It contains another magic; Return.
   Now go to the next screen on the left. You'll return to where you
   started from. Do the same thing by going down the ladder and be
   careful of the rock. Reach the two paths, and go to the left now
   (the next screen). Jump down, and up the ladder (be careful of the
   arrows from both sides). Note: you can stop every two arrows then
   continue going up). Go through the only door. Now, you'll be down
   somehow. Go to the right and to the next screen. Up the little
   stairs-like (to the right side), a get the treasure's content; a
   Heart Case.

O  Heart Case #6:
   Get out of the Castle from the door on the right to return to the
   Large Tree. Move to the right and to the next screen. Continue
   moving to the right, and go down to the water. You'll see Shion
   swims for the first time. Move on, and use the jump button to swim
   on the up direction. You'll be in a place that you have been to,
   but it's not the same, it looks like that. Be careful of the
   scorpion, you'll get 4 Gold pieces if you kill one of them. Keep
   jumping to the right until you reach a small house. Enter it. There
   is a woman inside the house. Talk to her, and she will tell you
   that if you have the Marmaid's Tears, you'll find the shrine
   underwater. Also, she will tell you that if you give her the
   Ocarina, she will tell you where the Marmaid's Tears are. Agree.
   She will tell you that you'll find them from a hidden door amidst
   two palm trees. Now, get outside. Continue walking to the right,
   and you'll see the small monsters that you've seen before. You'll
   also see the two palm trees. Stand between them (just like the two
   statues), and press Up. Get the treasure's content; Marmaid's
   Tears! Now return between the two palm trees (press Up near the
   treasure), and go to the woman's house. Talk to her, and she will
   tell you that the shrine will appear once you have the Marmaid's
   Tears. Get outside. Now go inside the water after the house (to the
   right). Swim to the left killing the big fish (you'll get 38 Gold
   pieces). Keep swimming until you see a small hole. Get inside it.
   Kill all the fish there (you'll get 41 Gold pieces when you kill
   the small one), and then go down. On the right, there's a treasure.
   It contains yet another Heart Case.

O  Heart Case #7:
   Once you are in the desert, go to the right, and kill the red
   monster. Continue (be careful! When the monster spawn again, it
   shoots a fire ball), and kill two more red monsters. Go to the next
   screen. In this place, there are two more red monsters to kill.
   There is a hole to get inside also. Go down. Just go down as far as
   you can, killing the bats and red monsters, and go to the right.
   You'll see another moving rock, jump on it (ignore the right side).
   When it reaches you to the top, jump to the left, then to the right
   (to reach the edge). Ignore the red monster down, just jump, jump,
   and jump above it until you reach the right side. Go on and get the
   treasure, it's a new magic, Quake. Now return the same way, but
   don't go on the moving rock. Instead, go to the left. You'll see
   the moving rock, so jump on it. Jump, jump, and jump until you
   reach the first moving rock. Jump on it, and jump outside the hole.
   Go to the next screen (to the right). Kill the red monsters, and go
   down the ladder. Now if you fell down, up the ladder. You'll see a
   treasure a bit far away to reach. However, just like what you did
   in your way to Lilypad, up the ladder a few feet, then press Left.
   Kill the bat, and get the treasure, an upgrade to the Shield magic
   (now you can cast 6 of it). Go down, then down the water (ignore
   the door for now). Keep going down while swimming, and be careful
   of the spikes down on the bottom, go left, and get the treasure. It
   contains a yet another Heart Case.

O  Heart Case #8:
   In the Pyramid, a mummy will welcome you, so quickly, kill it. From
   your position, jump and, using the rope, go up to the next screen.
   Keep going up, but be careful of the arrows. Remember, once you
   fall down, you will restart all the way again, so make sure you
   stop until the arrow is shot. Go to the next screens. Once you are
   up, go to the right. Jump WHEN you are stuck to the right wall,
   because there are some spikes exactly under ya. When you are down,
   be careful of the ghost, and go to the left (there will be a new
   way to reach the left part). Now jump down. Go to the left, and get
   the treasure's content, a Heart that will refill your health.
   Return, and go to the right (another new way) with the caution of
   the ghost. Keep going right, and jump (there ARE some other spikes
   down there). Then, go to the left. Jump to where the mummy is and
   kill it, then* jump down to the left.
______________________________________________________________________
* I have restarted all the way to here for something I missed at this
point. Before you jump, make sure that you are being stuck to the left
wall before you go to the next screen, and press Left after you go
down. If you failed in doing this, sorry, you don't have a chance to
do it again, but only if you die and re-enter the Maugham Desert, and
then you do what I have just mentioned.

   If you did what was in the note before, get the treasure that
   contains the last Heart Case.

    |I. My Review|
     ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

     Wonder Boy in Monster World is a great game indeed. So, that's
why it makes me create all of this file, spending too much time on it.
Now that I want to tell you how I feel towards this game. Let me rate
it.

  GAMEPLAY [8/10]
  ---------------
  In this game, you'll truly have fun, fun, and more fun, if you like
it that is. When talking about the difficulty, this game is pretty
easy. I'm not saying that because I have to tell you this, but it's
too easy. A bad point that I noticed while spending hours playing the
game is the bad controls. The problem is when you jump and press Up,
Shion, the main character of course, uses an item. In the Genesis
version of the game, there isn't a problem like this because the
cast/use command has its on button (A).

  STORY [7/10]
  ------------
  Come on, it doesn't contain an actually great story, like FF series,
it's so far away of that. The story here is simple. It's about Shion
who has vowed to return peace to the Monster World region.

  AUDIO/VIDEO [6/10]
  ------------------
  Sorry, but the graphics are that good. The audio as well. Man, if
you just have a look at the Genesis version, you'll know what I mean.
Yeah, I know that the Genesis is more advanced than the Master System,
but hey, they can make the graphics better, and the audio, too.

  REPLAYABILITY [6/10]
  --------------------
  Unfortunately, once you beat the game, you may not think of playing
the whole game again, but maybe after a few periods of time!?

  ADVANTAGES
  ----------
    + Has lots of fun.
    + Will pass your time.
    + Password feature (unlike Monster Land).

  DISADVANTAGES
  -------------
    + The audio is bad.
    + Short listings (items, weapons, armors, etc.).
    + Bad controls

  OTHER GAMES IF YOU LIKE THIS
  ----------------------------
  If you like this game, try these other titles:
    + Zelda II: The Adventure of Link               NES
    + Monster World IV                          Genesis
    + Wonder Boy in Monster Land          Master System
    + Wonder Boy in Monster World               Genesis
    + Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap        GameGear
    + Wonder Boy III                      Master System

  FINAL RESULT [7/10]
  -------------------
  Yes, 7 out of 10. A great game, but comparing with Phantasy Star,
not that good.
