-=Walkthrough=-



Arcs

You start out in an inn.  You should save and then go to a big house in 
the north east side of town.  By the stairs a woman will ask you to 
clean her attic to get rid of the mice.  Say yes and then go upstairs 
and clean all the mice.  Once you have cleaned out all the mice open 
the two treasure chests to get the buckler and the scrap of paper.  The 
buckler is a shield and should be equipped.  The scrap of paper gives 
information on the tower of light.
Next go to Marlon the black smith's house and talk to him.  He will say 
to bring back dragon scales from the tower of light.  Next go to the 
gate that leads to the tower of light.  Talk to the guard and he will 
now let you in.  
Once outside town walk north until you come to a ledge.  Jump up and 
walk into the cabin.  In the cabin go downstairs and defeat all the red 
demons.  Then open up the treasure chests to get money and the crimson 
jade. Equip the crimson jade and he will attack enemies with fireballs.  
Keep going until you reach the tower of light.


-The little blue things that come from enemies are expierience that 
only Jade can collect.
-You can only have two jade out at a time.


The Tower of Light

1st floor-  

When you come in there will be 2 paths left and right.  Take the left 
to save and talk to Kashian.  Next go right.  Follow the path and you 
will fight skulls and skull knights.  At the end of the path there will 
be a staircase.  Take it to move on to the second floor.

2nd floor-  

Go left and talk to Ferris.  Then push the boulder left twice, down 3 
times, left 11 times then finally up twice onto the switch to open the 
door.  In the next room go left and into the door.  Ferris will get 
afraid of the mice.  Destroy them all like you did in the attic.  Next 
open the chest to get the magic shot.  Talk to Ferris to learn how to 
use it.  Next follow the path down and over.  At the end of the path go 
in the door.  Go down and to the puzzle.  These pictures will help you 
solve the puzzle:

Solving the puzzle will unlock the door to the right.  Go in to get a 
heart and a reviving mirror.  The fountain restores your life.  Get 
back into the hall and continue left.  Squares on the floor indicate 
spikes.  Make your way through the hall without getting near the 
squares.  At the end of the hall there is a door, go in it.  Then go 
left to get an apple.  Next head right to the platform maze.  In the 
platform maze head down there will be another one.  Head down from this 
one and go left there will be a hall with 3 doors.  The 1st door 
contains a hall that has a chest at the end.  The chest contains a warp 
gate but watch out for the spikes!  The 2nd door has a hallway with the 
orange balls.  Dodge these to get "The Key to the Seal".  The balls 
move faster than you so you might want to get far away before trying to 
pass by them.  The 3rd door contains sort of a spiral shaped hallway 
that has a chest at the end. It's very easy, just kill the enemies and 
get the long bow.  Once this is done go all the way back up to the 1st 
platform maze and go left to the locked door.  Use the key to the seal 
to open it. Go in the door right there.  On the platform maze, make

door and use the third floor key on it.  Puzzle!  Push the bottom rock 
to the right wall and then move it up next to the upper ball with 
a space in between.  Push the upper ball right, then up.  Push the rock

-=Boss Strategies=-

The Big Bug- This guy is found in the tower of light. Stay in the 
middle of the room and attack him with your sword. Do not leave the rug 
or he will get in your way. He will also send out little bugs. Take 
some time to kill those too. He will turn red when he is close to being 
beaten.
Gravity Machine- This guy is found in the ancient ruins. You should 
use a long ranged weapon on him. You can only hit him when his eye 
opens. He has one attack. This is to try to suck you up. You have to 
be far away from him all the time so that you won't get sucked up. 
Then keep jumping back and dodge the metal balls. Take time after he 
tries sucking you up to hit him. 
Ramus- These guys are green and blue ghosts.  Use the stop spell.  
They will then turn brown allowing you to hit them.  Dodge them by 
only getting behind and attacking one of them.  Walk carefully 
because you are on ice and there are holes.
Demon King- First off use your morning star to attack from far away 
at his tail.  But watch out his tail will try to hit you.  Now when 
his face breaks off attack that and watch out he gets faster.  Next 
attack his body with your most powerful weapon.  Watch out though.

Weapons
-------

-This table contains all of the weapons used in Brainlord.  Weapon name 
is easy enough.  Attack power is how much damage that weapon inflicts 
on your foe.  The weapon type consists of Sword, Axe, Boomerang, Flail, 
and bow.  A sword whips out quickly in front of you and keeps a good 
distance between you and your enemy.  The axe is the same but with a 
much lower rang.  A boomerang can be thrown and can hit an enemy twice 
and then come back to you.  Only one boomerang can be out at a time.  
The flail is a  ball and chain that swings in front of you with a 
larger range than than the sword.  If you tap over when the flail is 
all the way out then it will spin around for a double attack.  The bow 
shoots out and has a range that reaches until the end of your vision.  
Again, only one arrow can be shot at a time from the bow.  The special 
functions is anything that the weapon can do besides attack.  (ex: the 
Rock Breaker can break rocks blocking your way.)
