    Hello and welcome to my Altered Beast FAQ/Walkthrough. Well, I don't really
    like this port of this game since it can get REALLY frustrating. But, I've
    decided to make this for people who are playing it and really want to beat this
    game. I'll try my best to help you get through this game, so hopefully this
    Walkthrough will be helpful.

    searched for a strong warrior to rescue her. He has chosen a Roman Centurion
    who has been dead for over a hundred years and brought him back to life. Not
    only that, but has given him supernatural powers, the ability to tranform into
    different beasts. Now the nameless warrior has to fight through Neff's army of

    IV. Gameplay
    ===============================================================================
    
    --------------------
    -In Game Indicators-
    --------------------
    
    At the top of the screen you'll
    see the following indicators:
    -------------------------------
    SCORE   00000  HI-SCORE   00000
         ( )( )( )             Qx2
    -------------------------------
    
    -Score/Hi-Score
    The score shows how many points you currently have. You gain points by killing
    enemies and defeating the boss at the end of every stage. Depending on when
    you fight the boss in each stage, the points you get will will differ. The
    Hi-Score shows the current highest score in the game, whenever you play the
    game after turning on the system, the Hi-Score will always be set at 50000.
    
    -Life Gauge
    When you start the game or come back after losing a life, you'll have three
    blue life bars. Depending on how you get hit and who you get hit by, the life
    bars will change colors. They go from blue, to yellow, to red and then
    disappear after that, once all of you life bars are gone, you lose a life.
    
    -Lives
    At the beginning of the game you'll have 3 lives, when you lose all of your
    lives, the game will end and you'll be sent back to the title screen.
    
    --------------
    -Spirit Balls-
    --------------
    
    These floating blue balls fly out of the Two Headed White Wolves when you kill
    them. The first time you get it, you'll transform into a slightly stronger
    and bigger human. The second time you get a spirit ball, you'll transform into
    an Altered Beast that has special attacks in place of your punches and kicks.
    If you want to fight the boss early in the round, then you need to be an
    altered beast. You can fight the bosses in human form, but you need to go
    through all three sections of the round (this is explained in the walkthrough
    section) and reframe from turning into a beast to do so.
    
    --------------------
    -The Altered Beasts-
    --------------------
    
    -WEREWOLF ~ ROUND 1
     
     Button 1: Fireball. Press this to shoot fireballs from your hands.
     Button 2: Flame Arrow. This will make your character fly across the screen,
               depending on which side he's facing and destroy the enemies in his
               path with fire.
    
    -WEREDRAGON ~ ROUND 2

    ---------
    -Enemies-
    ---------
    
    -SLOW FOOT - 100 pts.
    Of all the enemies in the game, this is the easiest to deal with. They don't
    really attack you, they just slowly walk towards you. You can easily take them
    out, the only time you'll have problems with them is if there's too many
    enemies on screen and happen to bump into one of them. If you happen to bump
    into one of them, they'll start blinking and explode seconds later, this will
    hurt you if you're near it.
    
    -HEADLESS HORROR - 100 pts.
    These headless skeletons can be annoying if you don't know how to approach them
    properly. If you just walk up to them, then they'll punch you before you even
    get a hit in. When you get near them, kneel down and let them walk towards you,
    once they get close enough you should be able to kill them without much
    trouble.
    
    -SKINNY ORCUS - 500 pts.
    This flying demon usually appears in pairs that appear from the upper left and
    upper right sides of the screen. You should try and take them out while they're
    still in the sky, Cause if you don't they'll fly down and try to bump into you.
    If you missed them in the sky and are coming right at you, then kneel down and
    use the kick button to attack them when they get closer.
    
    -TWO-HEADED WOLVES - 1,000 pts.
    These animals are fast and run across the screen in groups. Among these you'll
    spot a white two headed wolf, if you kill these a spirit ball will come out
    and slowly float upward.
    
    -GRAVE MASTER - 300 pts
    When you see this giant yellow demon, don't just walk up to him, he'll hit you
    multiple times before getting knocked back. You want to approach them in the
    same way you did with the Headless Horrors, kneel down and wait for them to
    come closer before attacking them.
    
    -ROUND LEECH - 300 pts.
    This purple round creature will slowly bounce towards you, but when it gets
    closer it'll start jumping much higher then before, so you may want to time it
    right when you approach them. When they touch you, they'll stick to your head
    and slowly suck the life out of you. Rapidly wiggle the D Pad left and right to
    get them off.
    
    -CHICKEN STINGER - 300 pts.
    This demon will be difficult to take out if you're in your normal state. When
    you get near it, it'll swing it's tail at you and knock you down. Since it has
    a long reach, getting close enough to hit it will be hard. It will be easier
    to take out when you get stronger or transformed into a beast.
    
    -RATTLE TAIL - 500 pts.
    Appearing only in Round 2, this dragon like creature will come flying up or
    down the screen. You'll know when they're about to pop out because they'll
    wiggle their tails right before they do so. You can hit the wiggling tails to
    prevent them from popping out and punch any part of their body to stop them
    from moving.
    
    -CAVE NEEDLE - 100 pts.
    These giant yellow wasps will quickly run across the screen, if you're not fast
    enough to take them out then you'll get knocked down.
    
    -HAMMER DEMON - 500 pts.
    Kinda like the Skinny Orcus, except it stays at the top and flies by. When you
    walk under it's path though, it'll drop down and hit you if you stay in place.
    If you move away just in time, then you can attack it while it slowly moves
    back up. If you're in your stronger human state, then when it falls down, kneel
    down and kick it when it gets close enough.
    
    -GORY GOAT - 200 pts.
    This goat creature will hop on screen looking like he's gonna start boxing
    someone. Don't let them get too close because they'll hit you real quick, when
    they get near just kick them.
    
    -SAW FISH - 100 pts.
    This creature can be quite an annoyance if you don't kill them right away. This
    small grey fish with spikes will roll right on screen right through you if you
    don't do anything and turn right around and do the same thing. When they
    approach you, kick them.
    
    -DARK UNICORN - 300 pts.
    This tiny purple unicorn will normally walk towards you, but when they get near
    you they'll jump towards the upper part of your body. If you're in your
    stronger human form, when it jumps, kneel down and kick it when it gets close
    enough. In your normal human state, it can be a little tricky taking them out.
    
    -BAD BOAR - 500 pts.
    These yellow Bad Boars are just like Grave Masters, let them get near you,
    kneel down and attack them.
    
    ===============================================================================
    V. Walkthrough
    ===============================================================================
    
    Each round has three sections to it. The first part is before the first
    appearance of Neff, the second is between Neff's first and second appearances
    and the third section appears after Neff's second appearance. You can ignore
    the other sections if you finsihed the round early and go straight to the boss
    sections. Also, keep in mind that when you're in beast form that the round will
    probably move/end much quicker.
    
    ---------
    -Round 1-
    ---------
    
    -Section One-
    As soon as the screen starts scrolling, walk over to the right, three Slow
    Foots will pop out of the ground. After knocking them out, stay in the middle
    of the screen and Slow Foots will pop up from each side 3 times in a row. When
    you're finished with them, a Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the right.
    Kneel down and punch it before he jumps again and do the same to the other one
    the jumps out afterwards. Two Headless Horrors will fall down the screen after
    that and a white Two Headed Wolf will jump out and stand beside them. You
    should be able to punch all of them at the same time if you don't get it by one
    of the Headless Horrors.
    
    Grab the spirit ball that comes out of the white wolf and stick to the left
    side of the screen. Get ready to jump up and hit the Skinny Orcus that appears,
    three Slow Foots will pop up from the ground below it at that moment, ignore
    them and quickly jump up and attack the other Skinny Orcus on the right. Take
    care of the three Slow Foots and two other slow foots will pop up on the right.
    After that, two Skinny Orcus from the left and one on the right will appear, if
    you weren't able to take all of them out then kneel down and kick the remaining
    ones that get near you. At this point, two Headless Horror will fall from the
    screen on the left side of the screen, stay kneeled and take them out.
    
    Now move to the right side of the screen to kill the Headless Horror that
    appears then quickly take out the Skinny Orcus' that appear on the left and
    right side of the screen. Afterwards, kneel down and face the left side to be
    ready for three Two Headed Wolves, one of which is white, that comes charging
    out. Get rid of the 2 Slow Foots that pop out from the right and kill the
    3 Slow Foots that appear just ahead of them. Get in the middle and get ready to
    jump up and hit the two Skinny Orcus' on the left and one on the right, at this
    point a Grave Master and Slow Foot will pop out on the right side. After that,
    three more Slow Foots will pop out on the right and two Headless Horrors will
    walk out behind them, two Skinny Orcus' on the right and one on the left and a
    Slow Foot on the left will appear also. After taking them all out, Neff will
    appear on the right, if you are a beast at this point then you'll fight the
    boss, if not, then you'll in the second part of the round.
    
    -Section Two-
    When Neff starts walking away after his first appearance, move to the middle
    right side of the screen to avoid getting hit by the Slow Foot that pops out of
    the ground on the middle left side. After that the screen will start moving
    again and two Skinny Orcus' will appear from the left side, after you take them
    out, kill the 3 Slow Foots on the right, each one appearing after the other.
    Right after you kill the third one, 2 Two Headed Wolves will jump out from the
    left and one from the right. Quickly take them out because a Skinny Orcus will
    appear from the left and right, but don't attack them just yet. Shortly after
    there appearances, a Headless Horror will appear from the left and right and
    a white Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the left a second later. Kick the
    white wolf, then the Headless Horror on the left, then the two Skinny Orcus'
    and finally the Headless Horror on the right.
    
    After you're done with them, jump on the platform above you, a Two Headed Wolf
    will come running out from the right and a white one shortly after it. When
    you're finsihed with them, get back done to the ground level. A Skinny Orcus'
    will appear from the left and right and a Grave Master will appear from the
    left and right below, don't jump up to kill the Skinny Orcus', instead deal
    with all of them on ground level. Stay in the middle afterwards, a Two Headed
    Wolf jump out from the left on the ground and the platform above, another one
    on the right and a Skinny Orcus will appear from the left and right. Kill the
    two Wolves on the ground and ignore the one above, then take care of the two
    Skinny Orcus' that will be coming down right about then. After that, a Grave
    Master will appear from the right and another Two Headed Wolf will jump down
    from the platform on the left, try and kill the Wolf first if you can.
    
    Now when you're finished with both of them, stay under the platform, 2 Two
    Headed Wolves will jump out from the platform above to the left. Ignore them
    and quickly kill the Skinny Orcus that appears from the right. Afterwards, a
    Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the left on the ground and the platform
    above and a Skinny Orcus will also come out from the left and right side. Take
    out the bottom wolf and move to the left, the other wolf should have just
    jumped over your head at this point and then kill the Skinny Orcus' when they
    come down. 
    
    Right after that, 2 Two Headed Wolves, the second one a white, will come
    running down from the left, destroy them quickly. After them, two Skinny Orcus'
    from the left and another from the right and a Grave Master will appear from

    middle of the screen when you're finished, two Skinny Orcus' will appear from
    the left and one on right and two Headless Horrors will fall from the sky on
    the left, take care of all of them on ground level.
    
    Further ahead, a Two Headed Wolf will jump out from thr right, then another
    will jump out from the platform on the left and then two more will run out from
    the left below, jump on the platform above to avoid the last two. While you're
    up there, a Skinny Orcus' from the left and right will appear, kill them
    quickly. Seconds later a white Two Headed Wolf will run out from the right
    platform, take it out quickly because another Skinny Orcus will appear from the
    left and right shortly after. When you're finished with them, move back down to
    the ground level and take out the Headless Horror that appears from the right
    and left. When you're finsihed with them, two Skinny Orcus' will appear from

    appearance in the round.
    
    -Round 1 Boss: Aggar-
    The boss stays on the right side the whole time but he cuts off his heads and
    throws them at you. They float at the top of the screen and usually drop in the
    last place you were standing, so it's always good to keep moving. You can
    easily hit him with your fireball attacks while dodging his heads, you'll most
    likely hit some of the heads doing so but you shouldn't have much of a problem
    defeating him in beast form. In human form, you have to walk right in front of
    the boss and punch him. Since this boss throws 7 heads at a time, use the break
    in between to punch him as much as you can then avoid the heads when he starts
    throwing again. Keep doing this over and over again and you will eventually
    defeat him.
    
    ---------
    -Round 2-
    ---------
    
    -Section One-
    After the round starts, walk to the right and kill the two Round Leeches that
    appear, then a Round Leech will appear to your left and right. Afterwards, a
    Chicken Stinger will appear from the right, kick it, if your timing is right
    then you can hit it before it gets a chance to hit you with it's tail. Now get
    ready for a Two Headed Wolf and another one after it to jump out from the
    right, a couple of seconds following them will be a white one. There shouldn't
    be any distractions so you should be able to easily get the spirit ball from
    it. Now after that, get ready for Skinny Orcus' from the left and the right to
    appear and another pair will appear after you take them out. At that point, a
    Grave Master will appear on the right and a Round Leech on the left. When
    you're taking care of these two, another Skinny Orcus' and another Grave Master
    will come out from the right.
    
    After killing them both, just ahead three Round Leeches will fall from the sky
    from the left. Also at this point, Rattle Tail's should be popping out from the
    top and bottom from the screen, so watch out where you're standing. When
    dealing with the Leeches, a Skinny Orcus from the left and right will appear
    and another pair will appear after taking them out. After killing them, a
    Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the left and two will jump out from the
    right, the second one on the right being a white one. A Skinny Orcus will
    appear on the right afterwards and the screen should stop scrolling at that
    point. A Grave Master will appear on the left and right, you should be able to
    take them out without trouble. After that, two Skinny Orcus' will appear on the
    left and one on the right and two Round Leeches will hop out from the right. At

    on the right will fall from the sky, when you're finished with them, a Skinny
    Orcus' will fly out from the left and another after it and one from the right
    will come out afterwards. After that, a Grave Master from the left and a
    Chicken Stinger from the right will appear, a Rattle Tail will come down from
    the top right after them. Now when you're finished with that, 2 Two Headed
    Wolves will run out from the right and a white one shortly after. When you're
    done with the white one, a Skinny Orcus will come out from the left and right
    and three Round Leeches will fall from the sky from the left, try and kill the
    Leeches first and then the Skinny Orcus'. After that, two Skinny Orcus' will
    come out from the left and a Grave Master below them, kill the Grave Master
    first and then the Skinny Orcus' when they come down.
    
    Now kick the Chicken Stinger that appears from the left and then attack the
    Skinny Orcus' that appears on the left and right afterwards. At this point
    another Chicken Stinger will come out from the left, but stay in the middle,
    two Round Leeches will fall from the top from the left and another on the
    right. Kick the Leeches and Chicken Stinger on the left first, then the one on
    the right. Afterwards, a Grave Master and 2 Two Headed Wolves after him will
    appear from the right, seconds later a white Two Headed Wolf will also jump out
    from the right. Right after this, a couple of Rattle Tails will come out from
    the top and bottom, stick to the middle to avoid them. When that's done,
    another Chicken Stinger will appear from the left and two Skinny Orcus' will
    appear on the left and right above, take care of the Stinger first. Following

    will appear above from the left and another from the right, kill the Leeches
    quickly before taking on the Orcus'.
    
    Another Round Leech will appear from the left, wait for it to come to you
    because a Rattle Tail will come out from the bottom left. Ahead, a Grave Master
    from the left and right will appear, at this point the screen will stop moving.
    When you're done with them, a Round Leech will appear from the left and a
    Chicken Stinger on the right, after killing them another Grave Master will

    Orcus' when they come down. Afterwards, a Skinny Orcus will appear on the left
    and two Round Leeches on the left botton and another from the right, since the

    out. Right after them a Skinny Orcus will appear from the left and right, kill
    them and then the Grave Master that appears from the right and move back into
    the middle again. A Rattle Tail will come down from the left and right top of
    the screen, at the same time a Skinny Orcus will appear from the left and right
    sides. Since you won't have much room to jump up wait until they come down to
    you to attack them, after that kill the Grave Master that appears from the
    right. Right after him a Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the right and a
    Skinny Orcus from the left and right, kill the Wolf and the two Orcus' quickly.
    
    When you're finished with them a Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the right
    and two Round Leeches from the left, kill the Wolf first. After that a white
    Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the right and just ahead of the wolf, two

    When you're done with them two Round Leeches will hop out from the right, kill
    them quickly and move to the middle, a Rattle Tail on the left and right top
    will come down and another on the left out out from the bottom left, you can
    ignore them if you want. At this point you'll see a white Two Headed Wolf
    standing to the right, kick it to get the Spirit Ball, right then the screen
    will stop moving. Now two Skinny Orcus' from the left and another from the
    right will appear and a Round Leech on the bottom right, kill the Orcus' first
    if you can. Afterwards another Skinny Orcus will appear from the left and right
    and a Grave Master on the bottom right, kill the Grave Master first. Kill the
    Chicken Stinger that comes out from the left with a kick, after that a bunch of
    Rattle Tails will come out from the top and bottom, just stick to the middle to
    ignore them. When that's done, Neff will make his last appearance in the round
    and you'll then fight the boss.
    
    -Round 2 Boss: Octeyes-
    This boss also stays on the right side of the screen while throwing stuff at
    you. In this case, it will throw a bunch of spores that look like eyeballs,
    most of which will be thrown in the direction you were last in. In beast form,
    use your Lightning Smash attack and shoot in the middle of the boss where the
    one eyeball usually sticks out. Make sure to move out of the way when it
    unleashes another batch of spores, you can shoot them if you want. Keep this up
    and you should take him out without much of a struggle. If you're fighting the
    boss in human form, then you WILL get hit alot. You have to walk right of to it
    and start punching and move away when the spores come out and try to avoid
    them. Then go back and start punching the boss again, this is a very long
    method that will get you hurt alot and possibly make you lose all your lives.
    So make sure you're in beast form by the time you reach him.
    
    ---------
    -Round 3-
    ---------
    
    -Section One-
    Walk over to the right and you'll see three Slow Foots fall from the sky, after
    killing them three other Slow Foots will appear on the left. Don't approach
    them yet because a Round Leech will fall from the sky on the left and right.
    After taking care of them, a Headless Horror will appear on the the right and
    another one above on the platform and a Round Leech will hop out from the left.
    Afterwards, a Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the right, after this a Hammer
    Demon will appear at the left and right of the screen and another Two Headed
    Wolf will jump out from the right. When you're fighting the two Hammer Demons,
    make sure you're on the higher platform to get ready to attack the white Two
    Headed Wolf that jumps out. After taking care of them, get back to ground
    level, a Headless Horror will appear to the left and the right. Take them out
    quick before the two Skinny Orcus' on the left and one on the left appear.
    
    There will be a Slow Foot on the right too, but be careful approaching it
    because a Round Leech will fall from the sky around that area. A Hammer Demon
    will appear on the left and right afterwards and two Round Leeches will fall
    from the sky on the right. After that, a Skinny Orcus on the left and right
    will appear and a Chicken Stinger will come out from the right. If you want to
    avoid the Chicken Stinger then jump on the higher platform if possible.
    Afterwards, a Two Head Wolf will jump out from the left on the platform, you
    can let him jump over you if you want. Then a Headless Horror will fall from
    the sky on the left and right, a 2 Two Head Wolves, the first being white, will
    run out from the left around the same time. After taking them all out, you'll
    see two Slow Foots appear on the right.
    
    When you're finished with them, a Grave Master will appear on the left and
    right side. At this point the screen will stop scrolling and the following will
    appear in this order: a Headless Horror on the right, a Skinny Orcus on the
    left and right, a Slow Foot on the left and two Cave Needles will jump out from
    the right. Take out the Headless Horror first, then stay on the left side to
    wait for the two Cave Needles, then take care of the Skinny Orcus' with the
    kneeling down and kicking up method and then finally take out the Slow Foot.
    Afterwars, three Slow Foots will appear on the right, take them out quickly.
    After that, a Skinny Orcus will appear on the right and two Hammer Demons will
    alos appear on the right and another on the left. After you take care of this
    mess, Neff will make his first appearance in the round.

    After Neff walks off and the screen starts moving again, a Hammer Demon will
    appear from the left and right, kill them quickly. A Round Leech and another
    shortly after will fall from the sky from the left, kill them quickly also.
    Ahead, a Hammer Demon will appear from the left and right, two Round Leeches
    from the right and a Skinny Orcus from the left. The best advice I can offer
    here is to fight them all on ground level, don't jump up to the higher platform
    to fight, you'll just get knocked all over the place. Right after you finsih
    them off, another Hammer Demon from the left and right and a Skinny Orcus from
    the left will appear, you should also fight them on ground level too. When
    you're done with them, a Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the left, kill it
    quickly and afterwards a Skinny Orcus from the left and right and 2 Two Headed
    Wolves will come running out from the left, the second being a white one. Take
    out the Two Headed Wolves first and then the Skinny Orcus' when they come down.
    
    After that, a Grave Master will appear from the right, kill him quickly,
    another Grave Master will appear from the left on the platform. Stay in the
    middle though, two Round Leeches will fall from the top on the left, when
    fighting them a Hammer Demon will appear from the left and right. After
    you're finsihed with them, two Slow Foots will pop out from the left and a
    Hammer Demon will appear from the left and right, kill the Slow Foots first.

    will fall from the sky shortly after. When you're done with them, 3 Two Headed
    Wolves will jump out from the left, one after after another, the last one
    being a white one. After that, a Skinny Orcus will appear from the right and
    then left and afterwards a Hammer Demon will appear from the left and right,
    take them out fast. At that point, two Round Leeches will fall from the left,
    and just ahead after killing them, a Grave Master will appear from the left and
    two Round Leeches will fall from the top left, kill the Leeches first.
    
    Afterwards, a Skinny Orcus from the left and right and a Grave Master from the
    right will appear, at this point the screen will stop moving. When you're done
    with them a Headless Horror will come out from the right, kill him quickly
    because seconds later a Hammer Demon from the left and right and a Skinny Orcus
    behind both of them will appear. Attack all of them from the ground level,
    using your kick attack while kneeling down. After that, the following will
    appear in this order: a Slow Foot on the left and a Headless Horror behind it,
    a Grave Master on the right, two Slow Foots behind him and then two Round
    Leeches after them, take them out in this order also. When you're done with

    with them a Hammer Demon will appear from the right with another behind it
    and another one on the left, after you're done with them a Skinny Orcus will
    appear from the left. After killing it, take out the two Headless Horrors on
    the left and the Round Leech on the right, another will appear after it and
    two other Round Leeches will appear from the right. Right after that a Chicken
    Stinger will appear from the right, kill it and then a Two Headed Wolf will
    jump down from the platform on the right, then kill the Hammer Demon that
    appears from the left afterwards. When you're done with that, two Round Leeches
    will fall from the sky on the left, another will fall from the right and a
    white Two Headed Wolf will jump out from the right. Kill the Leeches on the
    left first if you can, then the other Leech on the right and finally the white
    Two Headed Wolf. At this point a Hammer Demon will appear from the left and
    right with another coming out behind them afterwards.
    
    After that, two Round Leeches will hop out from the right and three Slow Foots
    will slowly appear, one right after the other from the left, kill the Leeches
    first. Further ahead two Round Leeches will appear from the left and a Two
    Headed Wolf will jump out from the right, with another behind just standing
    still, kill the Leeches first. When you're done with them, kill the Skinny
    Orcus that appears from the right, then kill the Grave Master that appears from
    the left and finally the Skinny Orcus from the left above when it comes to you.
    Then go over to the right and kick the white Two Headed Wolf that's motionless,
    two Round Leeches will fall from the sky on the left and a Grave Master will
    appear from the left, kill the Leeches first. Afterwards, take out the Skinny
    Orcus that appears from the left, the screen will stop moving at this point.
    
    Now kick the Chicken Stinger that walks out from the right, kill the three Slow
    Foots that appears after it and then the Headless Horror that appears behind
    them. Right after that, a Hammer Demon will appear from the left and right, a
    Slow Foot on the left bottom and a Grave Master on the bottom right, take them
    out in that order. Afterwards, kill the Headless Horror that appears on the
    left, then the three Slow Foots on the right and then the Hammer Demon that
    appears on the left and right. When you're done with them, punch out the Slow
    Foot that pops out from the left and right and the ones that pop out after
    them. Now, a Hammer Demon will appear from the left and right and a Slow Foot
    on the left and right bottom, try to take out the Hammer Demon on the right if
    you can, then the Slow Foot on the right, the other Hammer Demon and finally
    last Slow Foot. Afterwards, Neff will make his last appearance before the boss
    fight.
    
    -Round 3 Boss: Crocodile Wyrm-
    Unlike the previous bosses, this one actually moves around the screen. When the
    fight begins, he'll be at the right bottom of the screen and shoot 5 balls in
    a row, then move at the top middle of the screen and shoot a ball to the left,
    the middle and the right. After that, he'll move to the upper right side and
    shoot another row of 5 balls then move back down in the lower right corner and
    shoot one ball. Then he'll repeat the whole process again. Now when the fight
    starts, you have to jump over the row of balls the first time and when he moves
    in the top middle position, stay in the left side and try and slide through
    the left and middle balls that he shoots.
    
    Now as either in beast form or human form, the only times you should attack
    him is when he's coming down and before and after shooting the one ball at you.
    Just hit him about three times when he's coming down and back up so you can
    jump over the ball, then quickly move back to the right  and get as close as
    you can and kneel down. The row of balls in shoots out SHOULD just barely miss
    and fly over you. During this part, punch the boss as many times as possible
    before he gets away. Keep repeating these methods over and over again until
    he's defeated.

    ---------
    
    -Section One-
    Walk over to the right and two Gory Goats will hop out, after taking them out,

    Finally kill the Hammer Demons that appear from the left and right, after that
    Neff will make his third appearance in the round.
    
    -Round 4 Boss: Neff (demon form)-
    There's really no easy way in fighting Neff, if you're close to him then he'll
    just walk towards you and start punching, if you're far away, he'll charge
    towards you real fast. Never get stuck in a corner, there's a 95% chance in
    beast form you'll get stuck until you die and in human form there's a 100%
    chance of getting stuck until you die. Now when fighting him in beast form, and
    I HIGHLY recommend you do fight him in beast form, there is two methods you can
    fight him. The first being a bit hard, when the fight starts, quickly move to
    the left and try and hit him once with a Golden Fire. Now when he starts
    charging at you, jump up and use your Golden Arrow attack to fly to across to
    the other side, land, shoot a Golden Fire at him a repeat over and over until
    he's defeated.
    
    The other method can be a bit tricky, at the beginning of the fight, quickly
    move to the left so that he'll charge towards you. At this point jump real
    high, he should stop right under you. Just when you're about to land on top of
    him, use your Golden Arrow attack, it should cause damage to him. Repeat this
    over and over again until he's defeated, you can actually use both of these
    methods at the same time but it will require alot of work and timing. Now if
    you're fighting him in human form then you'll most likely lose all of your
    lives because it will be difficult. The only chance you have in defeating him
    is if you haven't lost any lives, have 5 life bars using the code and haven't
    used any of the 4 continues with the other code. 
    
    ===============================================================================
    VI. Ending
    ===============================================================================
    
    After defeating Neff, a bird will start flying around on screen. It'll then 
    land on the ground and turn into Athena, you'll walk over to her and revert
    back to your human form. You and her will stare at each other while the words
    GAME OVER appear above them, it will stick to this scene for approximately 1
    minute and 30 seconds then return to the title screen.
