    ***INTRODUCTION***
    
    Hello, this is Ian Hís Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz walkthrough. 
    This is the first COMPLETED Banana Blitz walkthrough on Gamefaqs!
    If you wish to contact me for anything, 
    please e-mail me at jorwjorw@yahoo.com. This is my first walkthrough 
    I have ever made, and I think it turned
    out quite nicely. 
    
    Without further ado, letís get on to the actual walkthough.
    
    
    
    ***WALKTHROUGH***
    
    WORLD 1: Monkey Island
    
    == 1-1 ==============
    Difficulty: 1
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Simple. Just run toward the Goal. If you don't like the 
    control scheme, don't worry; you'll get used to it.
     
    == 1-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 1
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just run across the curvy bridge. There are fences on the 
    edges, so you won't fall off.
     
    == 1-3 ==============
    Difficulty: 1
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---This floor is the same as the first one, but you need to 
    jump onto a ledge. Press A to jump.
     
    == 1-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just jump up onto the platform and run to the Goal. You can 
    get the bananas around the stage if you want.
     
    == 1-5 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just run across the field and jump over the fences when 
    necessary.
     
    == 1-6 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Run down the first hill, and be sure to slow down as you 
    approach the bottom. You can run down the second
     hill as fast as you want because the Goal is right at the 
    end of it.
     
    == 1-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Run along the path and grab the bananas. Once you get to the 
    bridge, be sure to slow down and avoid the 
    stumps sticking out on the sides. You need to jump over a gap at 
    the end of the bridge. The red board at the
     end shows that you need to jump. Remember that, because you will 
    be seeing red boards throughout the entire game.
     
    == 1-8 ==============
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---This level is pretty tough for beginners. The birds will try 
    to blow you off the stage, so try to lean 
    toward the birds to even it out.
     
    == 1-Bonus ==============
    ---Run along the circles of bananas. Easy.
     
    == 1-Boss ==============
    ---This guy will try to blow you off the stage by flapping his 
    wings. Ironically, you actually can't get blown 
    off due to the barriers around the stage (unless you're jumping 
    as he flaps). After he gets done flapping, he 
    gets exhausted and he lowers his head. That's when you jump at 
    the flashing red dealie on his head. The bird will
     occasionally stick its beak into the ground, which also allows 
    you to hit his flashy dealie.
    
    
    
    
    WORLD 2: Jumble Jungle
    
    == 2-1 ==============
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just wait at the red tiles until the bridges are in front of you, 
    then wait on the bridges until the path 
    is in front of you. Easy enough, but getting the banana bunches on 
    the left and right can be pretty tricky. 
    You need to jump to get them, and if you plan to get all four 
    bunches, youíll hardly have any time left to get to the finish.
    
    == 2-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---This level introduces small pyramid-shaped tiles. 
    Theyíre not a very threatening obstacle, and you can 
    simpy roll over them slowly without much consequence. 
    To get the banana bunches in this level, you need to 
    run toward the stump, jump onto it, then jump over the 
    fence. Itís pretty tough, even for experienced players.
     Once you manage to get the bananas, youíll need to jump 
    all the way over to the pathway to your left, then approach the goal.
    
    == 2-3 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---Go down the hills at the beginning, and jump over the 
    blue spinning thing when you come to it. 
    Then go under the green spinning thing, and down the hill. 
    Be sure to jump halfway down the hill. 
    There are bumps right after the pit, so youíll probably 
    want to jump over those, too.
    
    == 2-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just jump over the gears when the time comes.
    
    == 2-5 ==============
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---At the end of the second hill, you will find a series of 
    small platforms with banana bunches on them. 
    Itís not very difficult to stay on the path, so feel free to 
    grab all the bananas. Not only will you get a 
    bunch of lives, but the path also leads you to the Goal!
    If you donít want to get the bananas, you can continue to the 
    right and jump over the hurdles when they
     get close to you.
    
    == 2-6 ==============
    Difficulty: 1
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Go across the spinning bridge. Thatís really all the advice I 
    have.
    
    == 2-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 2 
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---The tilting bridges can be tricky, but you shouldnít have any 
    problem jumping from one to the other.
    And be sure to go very slowly when you get to the hill with the 
    pyramid tiles.
    
    == 2-8 ==============
    Difficulty: 5 
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Itís easy to just run through this level, but doing that would 
    mean leaving many precious bananas behind. 
    Jump onto the creepy concentric rings and pass from one to another 
    to grab some bananas.
    
    == 2-Bonus ==============
    ---Just run along the path!
    
    == 2-Boss ==============
    ---When he unleashes missiles, wait for them to get close to you, 
    then jump on top of them. For some reason,
     this makes the missiles turn around and hit him. If you are really 
    good at this game, you can also go along
     a little obsacle course to grab a few bananas. This wonít stop him 
    from shooting at you though, so itís 
    pretty tough to pull it off.
    
    
    
    
    WORLD 3: Smooth Sherbet
    
    == 3-1 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Gongon
    ---Use Gongon to plow through the spikes and grab the bananas. 
    In case you didnít already know, hitting 
    spikes with any character other than Gongon will cause your 
    monkey to be pushed in the other direction.
    
    == 3-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Meemee
    ---Run down the half-pipe path. You can jump to get some bananas 
    throughout the stage if you want, but 
    it might mess you up a bit.
    
    == 3-3 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---Grab some bananas if you want, then jump on the platforms 
    to get to the Goal.
    
    == 3-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Gongon
    ---Use Gongon to plow through the spikes and get the bananas. 
    Be sure not to go too fast, because the 
    platforms with spikes are pretty small.
    
    == 3-5 ==============
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---Jump over the poles when they approach you. Be sure to aim 
    for the bananas above them!
    
    == 3-6 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Run down the hill slowly, while avoiding the trees.
    
    == 3-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 5
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Slowly go along the snowball-filled road, while avoiding the 
    traffic. It might be kind of tough to 
    get past the snowball dispensers at the end of the road, but you 
    shouldnít have too much trouble.
    
    == 3-8 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Aiai
    --Roll down the path. Be sure to look out for the two gaps in the 
    level.
    
    == 3-Bonus ==============
    
    ---Run around in circles! Be sure to keep your momentum.
    
    == 3-Boss ==============
    ---Left, middle, right, left, middle, right. Thatís the simple 
    pattern in which he throws the snowballs.
     Once you manage to get to the area where the boss is, he will 
    begin to spin. While chasing you. If you 
    avoid him long enough, he will get dizzy and stop spinning. 
    Thatís when you hit his swollen ďbelly button.Ē 
    (I think the developers had something else in mind.)
    
    
    
    
    WORLD 4: Detritus Desert
    
    == 4-1 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just run along the path, and stop whenever a door closes. 
    Easy.
    
    == 4-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Baby
    ---Going across rope bridges is easy, but going up the stairs 
    isnít. Be sure to keep moving foreward, 
    constantly taking very small jumps. Once you get to the top, 
    you can go through the hole in the pyramid
     to get a ton of bananas. (As long as youíre playing Baby)
    
    == 4-3 ==============
    Difficulty: 1
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Keep running foreward. Thatís it.
    
    == 4-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 6
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---This level will be incredibly difficult at first, but eventually, 
    youíll come back to this level and 
    think ďWow, I canít believe I once had so much trouble with this.Ē 
    All this level really requires is 
    practice and perseverance. Just keep trying, and donít bother 
    attacking the moles.
    
    == 4-5 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Go foreward. You can dodge the Goal to grab a banana bunch in 
    mid-air, but itís pretty tough.
    
    == 4-6 ==============
    Difficulty: 6
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---This level introduces swinging platforms. Itís pretty easy to 
    stay on them, but it can be pretty tough
    jumping between them. No advice here.
    
    == 4-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 5
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---This level is just a series of stairs, with an extra-long staircase 
    at the end. There are spikes on 
    the last staircase, but they shouldnít cause you much trouble. Just 
    remember, make the shortest jumps 
    you can when climbing stairs.
    
    == 4-8 ==============
    Difficulty: 2
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---You can go all the way around the pyramid and up a series of 
    steep hills to get to the Goal, or you
    can use a bunch of speeder tiles to launch you up. I recommend the 
    latter. Just be sure to jump over 
    the gap at the top of the pyramid.
    
    == 4-Bonus ==============
    ---Roll down the stairs at the beginning, then run over to one of 
    the speeders on either side of the 
    pyramid to launch yourself up and get loads of bananas. Just be 
    sure to slow down near the top or else
    youíll go flying off the stage. There are three areas you can do 
    this, each on a different side of the pyramid.
    
    == 4-Boss ==============
    ---Jump over to the second section, run across while avoiding 
    the moles, then jump over to the third 
    section. A bunch of moles will pop up out of the holes, and 
    one will have a flashing red light on its 
    head. Hit it, grab the banana bunches, then jump over to 
    the fourth section. Jump onto the missiles that
    come out of the launchers, then jump over to the fifth 
    section. Run between the boxes to get some banana
    bunches, then jump over to the sixth section. Jump onto 
    the missiles, and make sure all of the missile 
    launchers are destroyed, then jump to the seventh section. 
    Ram into the button to defeat the boss.
    
    
    
    
    WORLD 5: Pirates Ocean
    
    == 5-1 ==============
    Difficulty: 6
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---You should start out this level by running foreward 
    at a medium pace. After you cross the second 
    path segment (which requires a bit of speed), be sure 
    to slow down so that you can carefully jump up 
    the second segment (stairs). Once you get to the circle 
    path, take whichever path you choose to reach 
    the Goal.
    
    == 5-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 5
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Be sure to roll from one swing to the other, not jump.
    
    == 5-3 ==============
    Difficulty: 5
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---You should run at the same pace as the waves, and try to 
    stay right where the picture below depicts. 
    (O is your monkey)
        _____          ______         ______
      /#######\      /#######\ O    /#######\
    /###########\__/###########\__/###########\
    
    That way, your monkey is always going downhill, even though 
    heís moving straight foreward.
    The second segment is a bit harder though, because the waves 
    are going faster than you are. I recommend 
    jumping as youíre going along the waves in order to avoid 
    ramming into a block.
    
    == 5-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Jump across the platforms.
    
    == 5-5 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Gongon
    ---Jump onto the wheel, and let it carry you to the Goal while 
    you smash the spikes.
    
    == 5-6 ==============
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---Just run around the rings and across the bridges until you 
    get to the Goal. There are a couple of 
    rings with banana bunches in the middle, so you can grab those if you want.
    
    == 5-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 6
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---At the first intersection, you can go right to go the normal 
    way, or go left to go the dangerous 
    way with a lot of banana bunches. I have no idea 
    how youíre supposed to get those bananas though, 
    so I strongly recommend going to the right. You should 
    wait until the blue blocks are stacked up, 
    then start jumping across the gap as the separate. The 
    second Blue Block segment is a lot tougher. 
    Go across the temporary bridge and wait on the middle 
    block. Once all the blocks are together in the 
    middle, the game will glitch and you monkey will spaz a 
    bit. After that happens, wait a couple of 
    seconds and run across the new bridge. Jump at the very 
    end, and get onto the other bridge. Then 
    get onto safe land, and roll toward the Goal.
    
    == 5-8 ==============
    Difficulty: 7
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Run up the spiral and avoid the green blobby things. 
    Youíll have to get to the other spiral by 
    crossing a bridge with a gap (which you need to jump over, 
    obvoiusly). There are a few gaps in the 
    second spiral which can be tricky to jump over. Once you 
    get to the third spiral, simply jump to 
    the left when youíre near the top to reach the goal. 
    (Sorry if that walkthrough was a bit confusing; I couldnít 
    think of a good way to explain this level.)
    
    == 5-Bonus ==============
    ---Start by going to the right, then just go along the 
    border by jumping onto the blocks. Once you 
    get back to the starting point, just do the same thing 
    you did before, but do it by jumping on the 
    blocks second-closest to the edge, then third-closest, 
    and so-on.
    
    == 5-Boss ==============
    ---This guy is tough. When he first lands on the stage, get 
    as close to him as you can and circle 
    around him by jumping along his tentacles. Donít worry, this 
    squid doesnít have any melee attacks. 
    Once you get to the back, hit him anywhere in the glowing 
    pink area of his head. Repeat. After you 
    hit him the second time, he should jump back into the water 
    and summon some green blobs. They 
    shouldnít get in your way too much. After a few seconds, 
    heíll jump back onto the stage. As heís 
    jumping, be sure to observe the position of his tentacles and 
    move yourself accordingly to make 
    sure they donít hit you when they land. One the squid lands, 
    a shockwave of water will flow from 
    him. Jump over this wave, then continue from the first step 
    until heís dead.
    
    
    
    
    
    WORLD 6: Cobalt Caverns
    
    == 6-1 ==============
    
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---If you want some bananas, run to the corners of the board 
    to get some banana bunches. Once you 
    fall into one of the holes (which is very likely), just go 
    along the path with speeders until you 
    reach the goal.
    
    == 6-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Baby
    ---Approach the end of the bridge at the beginning, and wait 
    until the platform lowers down. Get 
    onto the platform, then let it carry you up, then jump onto 
    the smaller platform. It might be tough 
    for you to stay on this platform as it rises. Once you get to 
    the top, jump onto the rails and roll 
    toward the Goal. Once your instincts instruct you to, jump 
    off the rail and into the Goal.
    
    == 6-3 ==============
    Difficulty: 9
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---This floor requires you to jump from tube to tube along a 
    moving track. Honestly, I donít have 
    any tips for this one. Youíre on your own.
    
    == 6-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 6
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---Run along the orange/green path at the beginning as fast 
    as you can, and jump whenever the wave of 
    flippage approaches you. Easy enough. The second part is tricky, 
    though. Just stand on the platform a 
    little bit higher than the tile batch, and dash across the 
    board diagonally with good timing (jumping 
    may be required). After that, just jump up to the Goal. Or you 
    can skip the goal, grab a banana bunch, 
    then come back.
    
    == 6-5 ==============
    Difficulty: 8
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---You might be thinking, ďHey, why is the recommended character 
    Aiai? It should be Baby, because there 
    are so many rails!Ē Well, I didnít chose Baby because at the 
    last part, the Goal ring is just barely 
    below the rail. Baby likes to sag when he runs along rails, so 
    trying to reach the Goal with Baby will 
    result in your monkey hitting the ring and being sent careening 
    off the screen.
    
    == 6-6 ==============
    Difficulty: 6
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---After you jump onto a platform, your monkey will bounce from 
    the impact. When they hit the ground
     AFTER bouncing, jump toward the next platform. Once you land, 
    your monkey will bounce. When they hit
     the ground AFTER bouncing, jump toward the next platform.
    
    == 6-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 7
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Run along the path as fast as you can. Youíll have EXACTLY 
    enough time to reach the Goal. Thereís
     a gap near the end, so be wary of that.
    
    == 6-8 ==============
    Difficulty: 7
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---If youíve beaten floor 5-7, then you should have no problem 
    beating this one.
    
    == 6-Bonus ==============
    ---No tips here, sorry.
    
    == 6-Boss ==============
    ---Ram into the bossís pedestal three times to destroy it. 
    This makes it easier to hit her microphone. 
    After you destroy the pedestal, just keep jumping at her mic 
    until she is defeated.
    
    
    
    
    
    WORLD 7: Volcanic Pools
    
    == 7-1 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just keep moving foreward for the first part of this level. 
    You might want to jump over the ramps 
    at the beginning to stay on the safe side. Once you go over all 
    of the hills, drop down into the 
    skeletonís mouth, and tilt the remote in the direction the tube 
    leads. Youíll need all the speed you 
    can get to reach the Goal.
    
    == 7-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 6
    Recommended character: Baby
    ---Carefully walk across the group of pyramid tiles, then 
    jump onto the rails. Keep going foreward 
    until you reach a circle of rails. Carefully jump onto the 
    circle, then go around to the other side, 
    and down onto another circle. Go around this circle, then 
    move foreward. The next circle has a large 
    orange ball rolling on it. Make sure itís not in the way, 
    then quickly roll foreward, jump onto the 
    platform in the middle of the circle, then jump as far as 
    you can to reach the Goal.
    
    == 7-3 ==============
    Difficulty: 3
    Recommended character: Baby
    ---Just look for the largest hole in the platform, then use 
    it to drop down to the next platform. Then 
    look for the largest hole in that one.
    
    == 7-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 9
    Recommended character: Doctor
    ---Go down the spiral at the beginning, then go into the 
    skeletonís mouth. The path will, at first, 
    be extremely difficullt to stay on. Once you think youíve 
    started moving steadily, tilt your remote 
    very far back and move slowly, only focusing on moving 
    left and right. This level looks very 
    intimidating, but itís not that bad once you get used to it.
    
    == 7-5 ==============
    Difficulty: 8
    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---Whenever a platform is tilted just enough to allow 
    you to roll across it, then do so. Youíll have 
    to run across two panels at a time, and then three 
    panels at the end. 
    
    == 7-6 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Baby
    ---Jump onto the two rails in the middle. Once you get to a 
    place where two sets of rails intersect 
    (if they were on the same plane), jump down onto a yellow 
    metal grate. Then jump onto the middle rails 
    there, and then go to the next yellow grate. Then roll 
    down to the Goal on the middle rails you find there.
    
    == 7-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 7
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Roll up the spiral and jump toward the goal.
    
    == 7-8 ==============
    Difficulty: 7
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Run as fast as you can at the beginning and be sure to 
    hit the ramps to jump over the triangle 
    block dealies. After that, go through the skeletonís mouth 
    and just keep rolling on the path while 
    tilting the remote to the right. Youíll soon come across 
    two ramps. Be sure not to slow down just 
    because there are no speeders here; you need to keep your 
    momentum. 
    
    == 7-Bonus ==============
    ---The first two ramps are easy, but the third, fourth, 
    and fifth ones are hard because you have to 
    jump between them. I donít really know how to do this 
    successfully, and I have never gotten a perfect 
    score on this floor.
    
    == 7-Boss ==============
    ---Just keep avoiding this girl until her machine thing 
    turns grey, then falls apart. Once it does 
    so, you need to search through all the rubble to find 
    the monkey and simply ram into her to 
    damage her. Thatís it.
    
    
    
    
    
    WORLD 8: Space Case
    
    == 8-1 ==============
    Difficulty: 9
    Recommended character: Meemee
    ---Dash across the warped path as fast as you can, and 
    jump (and re-adjust yourself) whenever you 
    stray too far off the path. Meemee is best for completing 
    the stage, but if you want to get the 
    banana bunches at the top of the jumps, you should use 
    Yanyan.
    
    == 8-2 ==============
    Difficulty: 4
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just run foreward and jump across the moving gaps. 
    Thatís pretty much it. If you want, you 
    can go along some pathways to grab some bananas on the 
    rotating bit. 
    If you want to try something really fun, do this: just 
    keep running foreward as fast as you can, 
    and youíll get to the finish. Youíll ram right into the 
    side of a platform, but youíll bounce back 
    off and land on the rotating thing, then youíll shoot 
    right down the pathway and bounce between 
    the barriers of the Goal. Try it, itís really fun.

    == 8-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 9
    Recommended character: Doctor
    ---Go straight foreward, hit the two speeders, grab 
    the banana, then continue along the path. 
    Turn the corner sharply to avoid the next speeder, then 
    approach the speeder ramp. Once you 
    touch the ramp, immediately pull the remote all the way 
    back to prevent your monkey from going 
    too far. Jump over the next two speeders, and avoid 
    the two in the next two corners. Now 
    youíre at a large ramp. Approach the first speeder 
    on the ramp slowly, and use the same 
    technique as before to avoid going too far. Now avoid 
    the next two speeders, walk right by 
    the three ones that send you backwards, then run as 
    fast as you can and jump* toward the 
    platform with the Goal above it. Then jump into the Goal.
    *Jump OVER the speeder ramp; itís so powerful that 
    it shoots you right over the Goal.

    Recommended character: Yanyan
    ---Go up the first ramp normally, and 
    go up the second ramp 
    by jumping over the speeder 
    (just to be safe). Once you get to the 
    spinning blocks, wait 
    until the first one is facing 
    upward, then jump toward it and jump 
    again right after you 
    land on it. Then youíll end up 
    on a small path. Gain as much speed as 
    you can, and jump 
    right over the next two blocks. 
    Go up the next two ramps and avoid the 
    speeders, then jump 
    onto the next block and then 
    onto the path. Then go up the ramp and 
    to the Goal.

    ---Go down the spiral at the beginning, then 
    wait at on the path until a good opportunity 
    comes to get into the ďriver of red balls.Ē 
    Just run along the ďriverĒ and jump over the 
    balls until you reach the end, at which point 
    you jump back onto the normal path. Then 
    go up the ramp and try to land on the platform 
    with the Goal on it.

    have any tips for it.
    
    == 8-Bonus ==============
    ---Hit the speeders to launch into the air and get 
     lots of bananas. Itís not very likely 
    that youíll Fall Out in this one.
    
    == 8-1 ==============
    ---Run straight toward the boss and hide right 
    between his legs at the beginning of the 
    fight. This is to avoid his spinning attack. Once 
    heís done attacking, run up behind 
    him and hit him in his butt. Heíll probably either 
    start his spin attack again or try to 
    stab you. After you hurt him enough, heíll jump in 
    the air and start a small earthquake; 
    be sure to jump as he lands. After that, the fight 
    will continue normally, but the edge 
    of the stage will be all wavy and large blue sparks 
    will be flying everywhere; neither 
    of which will really affect you.

    Difficulty: 5
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Just run foreward as fast as you can, and jump whenever

    just keep going foreward until you reach the Goal.

    Difficulty: 9
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---Jumping along the platforms should be easy enough, but 
    the tricky part is avoiding the blue slime near the end. 
    Be sure to jump right in the middle of it, and jump again 
    once you hit it to avoid falling off. Then quickly jump to 
    the next platform before the slime respawns.
    
    == 9-4 ==============
    Difficulty: 7
    Recommended character: Meemee
    ---Keep going foreward as fast as you can. The loop at the

    ---The first two turns should be easy, but the third one is 
    tricky. Once you get as far as you can, just keep jumping 
    and run down the hill. Once you get settled again, slow down 
    and take the last turn nice and easy.

    Recommended character: Baby
    ---This level  caused me to stop playing this game for days. 
    The first few parts should be easy, but it's very difficult 
    to get down the steep hill near the end, and even harder to 
    go up the hill to reach the Goal. I'm not very good at the 
    second hill, but here's a tip for the first one: just keep 
    jumping as you're going down. It will slow you down a lot.
    
    == 9-7 ==============
    Difficulty: 8
    Recommended character: Aiai
    ---The first part shouldn't cause you much trouble, considering 
    how hard it is to fall off, but the second part is tricky. Wait 
    until the tumbler is about to reverse itself, then jump across 
    the first two platforms and stay still on the third. Then gain 
    speed by going back and forth, and jump toward the path when 
    you're ready.

    ---World 9 and 10 are bonus worlds, so they don't have boss 
    stages. To compensate for that, this world has an extra stage. 
    This one is tricky. Just drop down the towers and into the pathway 
    with rails. After that, it's mostly just based on luck and 
    persistance.

    ---Whenever you get too far from the center of the tumbler, 
    jump to re-adjust yourself. Jumping solves everything in this

    through the level.
