I. What's new
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

V. 1.10 (10-12-2004)

Rewritten a lot of the levels and boss strategies.

V. 1.02 (06-09-2004)
New mail address and changed the layout a little bit, I'll change some of 
the boss strategies in the next update.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
II. Intro
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Games made after movies aren't usually very good and this game isn't an 
exception, in the game you take the role of the mask, a dork who becomes 
someone else once he puts the mask on, you'll come across lots of different 
locations from the movie and even most of the moves are recognisable from 
the movie. The graphics look really good and the animations look also really 
good, but the game lacks in the gameplay department, the levels all look 
pretty much a like except with different enemies and backgrounds. Another 
negative thing is the length of the game, you'll probable finish it in an 
hour. All in all the game is just a bit above mediocre.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
III. Story
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The story is about a man named Stanley Ippkiss who works at a bank and  
falls in love woman who comes there one day. Then one day he finds a mask 
that changes him in a guy with huge powers, until some other dude finds 
this out and steals the mask from him and kidnaps his girlfriend. So 
Stanley goes after him to save her.

VI. Walkthrough
---------------------------------------------------------------------------


                         Stanley's Apartment 
                         -------------------

Go to the right and go down, go to the right again and break open the floor,
there get the diamond and go back up and go to the left. Kill the two guys 
and duck for the flying cat, then break the window and go down, go to the 
right and go down, jump up on the floor above you and go to the left, break
the floor, go down and break the alarm clock with your hammer (don't you 
feel like doing this sometimes?). Go to the right again and watch out for 
the guy in the bed, grab the heart and break open the floor, go down. Grab 
the money on your way down and go to the left and into the shaft. Once 
you're out go down and then go to the left while being careful for the guy 
in bed, go into another shaft and go further to the right once you're out, 
break the window and kill the guy with the bowling ball (just use your guns
to kill him). 

Then go through the window and get the hat, walk to the right and go though 
another window, then bounce up to get the stuff and go trough another 
window. Get in the elevator and go to the right, go through another shaft 
and go to the right again, than jump on the boxes. Now there are three ways 
you can go, the upper and the lower ones seem to be going in a circle 
leading nowhere and the middle one goes to the boss, so go in there. After 
you went trough the window, go to the left and beat up the guy and destroy 
the alarm clock, get the stuff next to the shaft and go into the shaft. Now 
you're on the roof, go to the right first and when you fall down immediately
go to the left to enter a secret part in the building where you can get a 
hat and some money, continue going to the left and go into the shaft to go 
to a place where you can get an extra life. After that head back to the roof
and go to the left, than go into the shaft and you will come out at miss 
Peeman. 

                              ====  
                              BOSS
                              ====

The first thing to do is getting rid of the annoying alarm clock, just use 
your hammer on it once and it won't bug you anymore. Ms. peeman is a bit 
tougher, her only attack is shooting with her shotgun which is hard enough.
A frontal attack is the best thing to do here seeing that it's to hard to 
avoid the bullets, using your hammer here seems to be the best attack 
because if you'll hit fast enough than she will have no time to fire her 
gun.

                          The streets
                          -----------

Go up the building while avoiding all the bags that are being thrown out of
the windows and go to the right, than go down and immediately go to the left
to get some morphpower and go further down to get some money, than jump up 
again to get some energy. Go to the right and kill the clown, go up the 
second building to get some money, after that go back down and go to the 
right, follow the way and kill another clown, then enter the shaft, when 
you're out again go up using the moving platforms and grab the hat, above 
the last platform is a hidden extra life. Get it and go to the right and 
kill the clown, than go up and go to the left, use your guns to kill that 
guy a bit below you. There is a secret shaft somewhere above the normal 
shaft that brings you to a room with an extra life, get it and then go 
through the shaft, after that go up and go through another one. 

Now you'll have to fight a mini-boss, the mini-boss will go from the left 
to the right, watch out for the flames and the wrecking ball, just stay 
a bit on the right side of the motor so that the ball and the flames can't 
hit you. Destroy the motor with your boxing gloves and when that is 
destroyed concentrate on the swinging ball, use your hammer to destroy that
part. After you destroyed it go up using the platforms and go to the right,
now you'll have to destroy another machine, do it the same way as with the 
other machine. Once you've destroyed that one as well go to the right and go
down, go a bit to the left, there is a hidden shaft hidden behind that roof 
so press up to go in and get your dog. Than go back and go further to the 
left, go down and go to the right, then go up using the pile of tires and go
to the right again, go up again and kill the clown, jump over to the other 
building and go down, go a bit to the left and get all the morphpoints and 
hearts. Then go into the shaft and follow the way to meet the boss. 

                              ====
                              BOSS
                              ====

This guy is a lot harder than the first boss, like ms. Peeman this boss will
also not give you any change to attack. The best thing to do is using the 
thornado on him to weaken him and when your morph power runs out you have to
use your boxing gloves on him.

                         The streets 2
                         -------------

Go up the building but watch out for suddenly opening windows, destroy the 
alarm clock and go to the right, than go down a little bit and go to the 
right, use all the windows to go up a bit and go in the shaft. Once you're 
out kill the guy who is carrying a machinegun and go down, walk over to the 
second building and than climb  up, once you're on the roof go to the left 
and go into the shaft. Go to the right and go down, go a bit to the left to 
get some stuff and than go up the building, on the top of the building is a 
shaft hidden behind the roof that goes to your dog, after you got your dog 
back go back in the shaft and go in the other shaft. Go up the building and 
go to the right, go down and walk into the building, kill the guy with the 
machinegun and go in the elevator. Go to the left and kill another guy   
carrying a machinegun, go in the next elevator, once you're up go up the 
roof, grab the hat and the extra life hidden in the wall. Than go back and 
go to the right, use the elevators until you're at the boss.
                          
                              ====
                              BOSS
                              ====

There isn't really a good strategy for this boss seeing that his attacks are
so random, the best way to kill him is getting close to him and than start 
hitting him with your boxing gloves at high speed, every once in a while he 
will jump over you, after he's back start hitting him again. Once your energy
starts to run out or when you think he's about to die use your guns to kill 
him.

                              Park
                              ----

First kill the black guy, than jump in the tree and go the right, go down 
and than jump in the tree and go to the other side of the fountain, go 
inside the tree and get the stuff, than go back and go down. Get the hat and
go up again using the water on the right side. Go to the right and watch out
for the bombs and go down. Go to the left and go down. Go to the right and 
go up the tree, get the hat and go the left a bit, then up and go to the 
right. After you managed to find a way out of the tree go down and get the 
hat. Than use the water to go up the tree and go inside the tree, go to the 
right again to find the boss.

                              ====
                              BOSS
                              ====

First use your guns to damage him a bit, after your morphpoints have run out,
wait until he's stops shooting and comes back on the ground. Than beat him 
a couple of times with your boxing gloves and he'll start flying again, wait 
until he comes down again and give a beating again, do this until he dies.

                              Jail
                              ----

Go into the elevator and kill the prisoner, than make a hole in the floor 
and go down. Kill another prisoner and go into the shaft, once you're out 
hit the switch and go up, go into another elevator and when you come out 
pull another switch. Go to the left and kill all the prisoners, than go up 
and pull the switch there and go to the right. Pull another switch and go
into the green shaft, once you're out kill the prisoner and go to the left,
break the floor and go down. Go to the left again and go up, get the
morphpoints and go in the shaft, after that go into another shaft. Go in 
the elevator and once you're out pull the switch, run to the left and pull 
another switch before the shield goes back, then go in the shaft and kill 
the prisoner, go down and go to the right. Make your way up to the fifth 
floor and pull the  switch next to the elevator, go to the right and go in 
the shaft and get the hat. Then jump up the platforms and get the extra 
life on the right, go up and go to the left, take the elevator and jump up 
on the roof above the elevator to get a hat, go to the left and search for 
a hidden shaft behind the wall that leads to your dog and an extra life. 
Than go back and go into the other shaft to reach the boss.

                              ====
                              BOSS
                              ====

This guy is really hard, my tactic is standing in the corner and using your 
horn, if your lucky he'll be to far away to hit you. After your morphpowers 
run out beat him as fast as possible with your boxing gloves. 

                             Sewer
                             -----

Go totally down and go in the hole, go the left and go down again. Go up and
go to the right (where the crates are) and go up again, go down and use the 
bricks to reach the shaft in the upper right corner that goes somewhere 
where you can get an extra life. Than go back and go through the door, kill 
the prisoner and go in the shaft above you to go further or if you need 
energy  go in the hole a bit higher.  After you fell down kill the prisoners
and go to the right, go down and then go to the right, skip the door and go 
down again. Then go to the left and go up, go into the first shaft and than 
go trough other door. Go back again in the hole where you came from and 
you're at the exit.
   
                          Coco Bongo 
                          ----------

Walk totally to the right and go in the shaft. Once you're out go in the 
shaft at the lower left, then go in the upper shaft and kill the guy over 
there. Go back in the shaft where you came out of. Once you've fallen down
go in the shaft and go to the left, go in the elevator. Than go to the right
and go in the shaft, kill the guys and go to the left, go into another shaft
and go to the right again (you can use those music-notes as morphpower)and 
go into the shaft. Than go to the right and go up using those stars, go to 
the left and go in the elevator, go to the left again. Go in the shaft and 
then go through the elevator, go to the right and search for another shaft 
right before the shaft to find your dog, go back and go into the shaft. Go 
to the right and go into another shaft. Smash the ground open and go down, 
go to the right and then go up, then go to the right again, smash open the 
ground and go down to the final boss.

                             ====
                             BOSS
                             ====

This guy is pretty easy compared to the rest of the bosses, you'll have 
plenty of health and morph power, just get him a bit out of the screen and 
than use your horn the whole time, this should keep him from coming at you 
and attacking you, when your power runs out just get some more from the 
music notes on the right and if your health runs out get some more on the 
left. Once you've beaten him the mask does a little dancing and you've 
finished the game, SMOKING!!.
