    Game Story
    One day, two hip aliens were cruisin' the galaxy. ToeJam, the red
    alien with 3-feet, white gloves, chain and hat, asked if Earl (the
    yellow-ish one with sunglasses and shorts) wanted to drive. As Earl
    drives, he crashes into a meteor and they are forced to crashland on
    an unknown planet called Earth. The ship pieces are scattered
    throughout the planet. It is up to Toe Jam and Earl to find the ship
    pieces.

    General Info 
    Presents- many presents lie around. If you know that the present
    shaped like a hatbox is 'Rootbeer' then all presents shaped like a
    hatbox are 'Rootbeer' (until you use a Randomizer). There is an
    exception. The box with a ? on it is
    always random. You can still see what it is by taking it to the Genius
    in a Carrot Suit.
    If you use a present when ToeJam and Earl are on the screen, they both
    recieve it (except bookbox, doorway, decoy, and earthling).

    Map Items
    These are items and things located on the world map.
    
    Good Food- there are, and are not limited to, candy canes, hamburgers,
    pizza, fudge sundaes, cake, fries, and others.
    They give you some health. Some more than others.
    
    Bad Food- Moldy Bread, Moldy Cheese, Fungus
    They take away health.
    
    A dollar- it's a dollar worth 1 buck.
    
    Mailbox- spend bucks to buy one of 3 presents.
    
    Water/Ocean- swim in it. Your health bar is your air meter. Don't
    drown.
    
    Trees- just to add scenery. No harm, no nothing.
    
    Desert/Quicksand- As you walk/stand in this, you sink further and
    further into it. This slows you down. If you are in
    2-player, have your character touch the other one and you will be
    lifted up.
    
    Road- you walk faster on this.
    
    Elevator- takes you up to the next level. In two player, both players
    must be in the elevator to move on. This is 
    a safe place. No enemy can harm you while inside. Also, special
    presents (like Icarus Wings or Tomatoes) don't decrease while inside.
    You can leave a level even if you miss a ship piece.
    
    Ship piece- these are what you have to find to win the game. Find all
    10 (i think) on 25 levels.
    There is 
    1) bottom 'surfboard'
    2) front leg
    3) back leg
    4) capsule container
    5) right speaker
    6) left speaker
    7) Thrusters/exhaust
    8) Front glass
    9) Top fin (vertical)
    10) Top fin (horizontal)
    
    They are not in that order.

    Other Stuff/Tips
    
    You start with 3 lives. After certain level-ups, you earn another one.
    
    ToeJam is faster than Earl. However, Earl has a slightly bigger health
    bar.
    
    Some enemies are sleeping. When you see them, hold down A and sneak
    around. This will let them sleep. ToeJam is a faster sneaker than
    Earl.
    
    Sometimes, as Earl is walking around, or standing around, his shorts
    will fall down. He temporarily can't move.
    
    Drop bad presents. You run out of present space fast and you will need
    the room.
    
    In two player games, walk into each other to give a high-five. This is
    a Funkatron technique that evens out each other's health.
    
    Don't use really good presents unless both players are on the screen.
    Unless you want to be a bad buddy.
    
    Falling off cliffs takes you down one level and puts you on a random
    place. Unless your partner is on that level, then you land where he
    is.
    
    There are hidden bridges that connect parts of the level. Walk near
    the edge to find them.
