    The other day I was looking at the top 10 Genesis games, and
    saw Streets of Rage 3.  I clicked and looked at the FAQs.  I
    felt although they were good, I could probably write a more
    comprehensive FAQ.  So that's why you're reading this.

    Streets of Rage 3 is a sidescolling beat em up.  I tend to
    prefer Dynamite Cop, but SoR3 is superb.

    "Axel,
    
    I have learned from a new friend, Dr. Zan, that the syndicate
    is back with a clever new plan to take control of the city by
    replacing top-ranking officials with idectical robots under
    the control of Mr. X.
    
    Our old boss, the chief of police, has dissappeared and
    everybody in the city is preoccupied with the recent state of
    bomb explosions.
    I fear that the syndicate's evil plan is already under way
    [sic].  Adam is too busy to help [author's note: GAH!], but
    his brother Skate is joining Dr. Zan and me to try and get
    behind the bombing campaign and expose the real danger in the
    city.
    
    We need your help, Axel.  Please come.
    
                                                     Your Partner,

    "Skate: Phew!  That was close.  Another few seconds and... 
    BOOM!
    Blaze: Yes, we're lucky we found the bomb.  What's our next
    move, Axel?
    Axel: Well, Zan was right about the bomb.  Maybe's he's right
    about the robots too.  But I'll have to see it to believe it.
    Let's try to get a lead from the punks.
    Zan: I'm sorry you don't beleive me, Axel, but there's no time
    to waste.  Let's go!"
    
    From the right three guys with long hair will appear and from
    the left a guy with long hair and a pirate.  They're all
    wusses anyway, so no matter.  Press on.  Four ugly women will
    emerge from in front of the red light.  They're nothing 
    special.  After you defeat them, a long hair guy will emerge
    from where they came from.  Press on after taking him out
    and another ugly woman will come from your right and a pirate
    from where all the other enemies just came from.  Moving right
    a bit you'll find another ugly woman.  Then from the same spot
    there will be a thug in blue, a long haired thug, and a 
    pirate.  While you're fighting the pirate, a shirtless guy 
    will come from the right.  Press on and from under the three
    chains three pirates will emerge, one at a time.  Then from
    where there's one chain, another one will emerge.  If you get
    grabbed make sure you do your special.  Move on.  See that
    guy on the blue crate in blue?  He's going to jump down when
    you walk by.  It's a good idea to walk to where he is then
    walk left a bit so he can't hit you.  There are two crates
    you can smash at the bottom of the screen, one of which 
    contains a baseball bat.  Walk on.  There's another blue thug
    similar to the one you just fought.  If you walk a bit right
    you'll see another.  I recomend using that bat as it will
    dispatch them in one hit.  Press on a bit and a blue thug
    with a knife will run up to you.  Be quick, he's fast.  He
    will keep running back and forth until you get him.  Grab his
    knife and go right.  Right before you go outside, a shirtless
    guy will come from your right.  Use your new knife to take
    care of him.  Another guy will come from the right so be sure
    to stand in the center of the screen.  There will be one
    more shirtless guy.
    
    SUB-BOSS: Macleod and McBride
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    They both have guns, so don't stop moving.  In and out. Don't
    be close to them unless you're hitting them or you're bound to
    die.  
    
    Now that you're outside, a blue thug and a fat guy will come
    through the door.  Take them out quickly.  A shirtless thug
    will come from the left and a blue one from the right.  Under
    the left stack of tires is a sword, under the right stack is
    a dagger.  Two fat guys come from the right, use your sword
    on them.  Move right and two blue thugs will come from the
    door.  Move right again and two fat guys will come from the
    door.  When you move right go to the top of the screen unless
    you want to be hit by two freaks on motorcycles.  There's
    an apple under the tires.  Be careful when you go right
    because the bikers are back, covering the top and bottom of
    the screen.  Contiunue right.  See that boat?  The shirtless
    guy and the green thug jump out of it to assail you.  After
    taking them out a biker will come down the middle of the 
    screen.  Then two more bikers from the top and bottom of the
    screen.  Another two bikers from the top and bottom then two
    in the middle.  Then you will see another boat.  Two shirtless
    guys and a green thug will have at you.  Two spiky haired
    guys will come from your left and two from your right.  Two
    more will aprroach from the right while you're duking it out
    with them.  Go right more and a green thug will approach from
    either side of you.  Another boat will drop off two shirtless
    and one green thug.  Move on.  There's a turkey under the
    tires.  Go right more.  There's nothing under the next set
    of tires, but a boat does come along.  Two blue and two green
    thugs have at you.  Another boat drops off four shirtless
    guys.  The one in green is faster and has more health than
    the others.  You'll move to the next part of this stage.
    
    Under the barrel you'll find a bag of money.  Move right and
    a green thug will appear  There's a cat in the dumpster. :Ŝ
    A shirtless thug approaches from the left.  Move right and
    you'll find a green thu, a shirtless thug, and and electric
    thug.  The latter is unpleasant at best.  Also, another
    shirtless thug apporaches from the left.  Another electric
    thug will approach from your left.  Another electric thug
    will come from the right.
    
    BOSS: Shiva
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Don't jump at him.  Move in and out and don't be near him if
    you're not hitting him.  The top barrel has a turkey in it.
    If you're about to die be sure to use your specials on him. :Ŝ
    Also note that you can't escape his hold with your special
    like you can with normal enemies, so don't get caught in his
    hold. :Ŝ  A throw is a good idea too.

    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Skate: I can't beleive it.  No one told me a thing.  
    Zan: We're wasting time fighting these punks.
    Blaze: I think I have an idea of where to go now.
    Zan: I hope you're right"
    
    This looks just like stage 1 of SoR1.  :Ŝ  Regardless, it's
    time to kick some more buttocks. :Ŝ  Under the sign you'll
    find a grenade.  Then bikers will cover the top and middle
    of the screen.  Then bikers at the top and bottom, then at
    the middle, then the middle and bottom.  A green biker will
    continue going back and forth until you get him.  Then a 
    spiky haired punk will appear from the right.  There will
    also be another biker who won't go away.  Then two spiky
    haired punks from the right and two from the left.  Bikers
    will cover the top and bottom and then one will cover the
    middle.  A spiky haired and purple punk will be waiting for
    you when you go right.  A purple thug will come from your
    left before you can even start the fight with the thugs on
    your right.  A shirtless thug will come from the left.  Go
    right.  Under the sign there is a bag of cash.  A purple and
    two spiky haired thugs come from the right while another spiky
    haired thug coems from the left.  Of course right when you're
    about to finish that moronic group another spiky haired thug
    comes from your right.  Go right a bit.  Punch away the sign
    and grab the apple.  The next sign has nothing under it.

    That was actually rather easy.  The next part of the stage
    will begin with three ugly women at your right.   Three more
    will quickly come from the right to join the fight.  Watch
    out for their slap attack, which does a lot of damage.  Keep
    in mind they're pretty weak but when they're in the dark they
    become very dangerous.  When you finish that two spiky haired
    dudes approach from both sides.  Another will come from the
    left to join the fight.  When you go right you'll see a blue
    and shirtless thug.  Anyways, keep going right until you
    encounter a trio of spiky haired thugs.  When you approach
    the rightmost one he will wake up and two more spiky haired
    thugs will join him from the right.  Then a blue haired thug
    will come from both sides.  While you're fighting two more
    spiky haired thugs will come from the right side of the
    screen.  A shirtless thug will drop down from above during
    the fight.  After everyone is taken care of another shirtless
    thug drops down.  When you continue right another shirtless
    thug will be waiting.  Four blue thugs will join him from
    the left.  Another two will come from the left and another
    shirtless thug from the right.  A blue thug with a knife will
    drop down and an electric thug will come from the left.  When
    you defeat the knife thug he'll drop two knives (?).  When
    you continue right there will be a turkey under the table.  
    There's nothing under the next table.
    
    At the beginning of the next section there's a turkey which..
    doesn't help you at all right now since your health was
    just restored.  Walk up to the light to start the boss fight.
    
    BOSS: Mona and Lisa
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    It's almost impossible to get any licks in on them.  I
    suggest simply using specials until you die.  Roo's specials
    are especially helpful.  Make sure when one gets down you
    jump so you aren't hit with their electric attack.  Another
    strategy is to jump kick, though this doesn't seem to work
    well with Roo.  If you get close, be sure to throw them.  When
    they use their electric attack you can get a good jump kick 
    in.  They seem to slow down when one is vanquished, too...
    
    STAGE 2 CLEAR!
    
    1-4. Stage 3
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    You'll automatically run up to a blue thug, a fat thug, and
    a shirtless thug.  Watch out, because just to the left of them
    barrels are falling.  While you're fighting the trio of thugs
    A teal thug comes from the left.  When he's about halfway
    across the screen another teal thug comes from the right.  
    When you continue right a spiky haired and long haired thug.
    Also, a pirate will come from your left.  Two spiky haired
    thugs will come from the left and one from the right.  A
    pirate will also come from the right.  ANOTHER pirate will
    come from the right while you're fighting.  Continue right.
    Under the sign above the pit there's a grenade.  Continue 
    right.  Watch between the pits, because barrels are falling.
    If you want to chance it there's a turkey under the sign, but
    you must hurry or the barrels will knock you right into the
    pit.  Continue right to see an electric thug and a blue thug
    will approach from the left.  There's a knife under the sign,
    but barrels are falling in the area.  Two more electric thugs
    come from the left.  A purple thug will come from the left.  
    Under the left sign here is a turkey.  The other sign has
    nothing to offer.  A shirtless thug will fall from the right
    side of the screen.  Another will drop from the left side.  
    A blue thug and an elecric thug come from the left.  This is
    especially difficult because there's a pit on the far right
    side of the screen.  Many more enemies will come from the left
    so be ready for the onslaught.  When the black thug comes 
    from the left, be ready for two electric thugs to drop from
    the right.  They have a bit more health than normal. 
    
    Go right, and destroy the walls as you go.  Be sure to hit
    the dozer to keep it away.  If it's about to hit you use your
    special.  You'll actually lose less health that way.  Go past
    the bar, and the guy will run into a pole, and the level will
    be over.
    
    Two long haired thugs and one pirate will come from the left
    right away, as well as an ugly woman from the right.  You can
    fall off into the right.  The left barrel contains a turkey,
    the right one is empty.  When you go up, two ugly women, a
    long haired thug, and a pirate will appear on the left side.
    Stay near the right edge until they're all there.  Remember
    that if you get caught in a slap attack you can always use
    your special.  As the elevator goes right, a green and 
    shirtless thug come from the left and an ugly woman drops from
    the right.  Be sure to make the shirtless thug drop his lead
    pipe.  Use it.  While you're fighting an ugly woman drops from
    the right.  When you go up four guys will drop down.  Two of
    them are shirtless thugs and two blue ones, one of whom has
    a knife.  Get it from him.  When you move left, two electric
    thugs and one shirtless will drop down from the right side of
    the screen.  A blue thug with a knife will come from the left.
    Another shirtless thug will come from the left.  Another
    electric thug will drop down from the right side of the
    screen.  Another electric thug comes from the left side of the
    screen.  A dragon guy with a thing on his pants will
    drop down from the middle.  Also from the middle, two
    shirtless thugs, a blue thug with a knife, and another dragon
    guy.  Someone drops a lead pipe.  Continue right.  When you
    see the two barrels, punch the right one to get a turkey.
    
    BOSS: Axel
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    I thought he was on your side?  I guess he replaced Ash...
    gah, American censorship... NOT what the framers had in mind.
    In any event, stay away from him.  Jump kick when he tries to
    jump.  If he's about to hit, special.  There is absolutely NO
    sense in getting hit.  When he turns orange he will become
    much more aggressive.  Be ready to lose some life... :[  Every
    time he changes color he becomes more violent.  When he turns
    red he's damn near impossible.  And... surprise!  He's a 
    robot.
    
    STAGE 3 COMPLETE!
    
    1-5. Stage 4
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Axel: A robot that looked just like me!
    Skate: So, it seems you're right, Dr. Zan.  Now tell us why
    you're helping us.  That robot nearly killed us.  How do we
    know this isn't a trap?
    Zan: It might be a trap, but I didn't set it! 
    Blaze: Skate, how can you accuse Dr. Zan! [sic]  Without his
    help we would know nothing.  I trust Dr. Zan.  Please 
    apologize to him.
    Axel: Stop arguing and look over here! [Picture of a door] 
    This concealed door has been used recently."
    
    Alright, wuss.  The enemies are getting stronger, faster,
    and more prolific.  Right off the bat, 2 pirates will come
    from the left, one from the right, and a long haired punk from
    the right.  Another long haired goon will join from the left
    in the middle of the fight.  See those train tracks?  Avoid
    them because trains come down.  Two more pirates will come 
    from the right.  Go right until you come up to the blue goon
    next to the apple.  Another two pirates will come from the
    left and another from the right.  Another pirate will join
    the fight from the left.  An orange goon will come from the
    left.  Another orange goon will come from the right.  Once
    they're all taken care of, a shirtless guy will come from both
    sides and in addition a blue goon from the right.  After that
    two pirates will come from both sides.  While this is going
    on two more pirates will join the mayhem from the right.  
    Press on until you see the blue goons waiting atop some sort
    of ledge. They're like the blue goons who jumped down at the
    begining of the game.  Also, when the last blue goon jumps,
    two blue goons and one green goon will drop down from the
    right side of the screen.  Another blue goon will join from
    the right side of the screen.  After you're done with them two
    spiky haired goons will come from the right and two more spiky
    haired goons from the left.  A shirtless thug will join from
    the right.  Three green goons with machettes will come from 
    the right when he's finished.  Then three more spiky haired
    creeps come from the right.... those machettes could be 
    useful. :Ŝ  Another shirtless dude joins from the right.  In
    the middle of this fight a shirtless thug joins from the 
    right.  In addition, another machette-wielding green dude
    drops down from the right side of the screen.  Another green
    goon will drop down from the right and pick up any loose 
    machettes.. gah!  When you finally do go right two ugly women
    will attack from the right and one from the left.  Go right
    after defeating them to find a turkey.  There will be two
    electric thugs.  While you're dealing with an ugly woman will
    come from both sides.  Another ugly woman comes from the left
    during the fight.  When they're almost finished another ugly
    woman will join from the left and an electric thug from the
    right.  And while you're dealing with them ANOTER electric
    goon will join from the right.  While you're dealing with them
    two more ugly women will join from the right.  Another ugly
    woman from the right and you're out of this level.
    
    You'll immediately notice the two ninjas.  Go right to the
    turkey and another ninja will jump in from the left side of
    the screen.  After he's gone four ninjas will come from the
    left.  Sometimes they drop kunai.  After they're finished
    another ninjan will come from the left.  Another will come
    from the right.  After that a ninja with a sword will come 
    from the left side of the screen, along with two of his
    cronies.  After they're finsihed another ninja will come from
    the right.  Take him down and go right to find three more.  
    After they're done another one will come from the right side
    of the screen.  When you go right you'll find another one,
    this time with a sword.  Another one will jump from the right.
    Then guys will come from both sides at you.  Another one will
    join from the right.  Then one from each side again, one with
    a sword.  Another from each side.

    1. Under the left statue is a turkey.  Be sure to kick away 
    his stars.  Try to get near him as he throws his stars.  Also,
    if he does the crescent attack, special him before he hits 
    you.
    
    2. Pretty much the same.  However, this guy can be thrown.
    Also, when he does the split crescent attack, stand between
    the two of him.  
    
    3. Again, pretty much the same.  However, when he does his 
    dash attack just go up or down.  For the invisible attack the
    best line of defense is to get under/over him.  If you're
    close when tries to start, he'll begin to back up.  Corner
    him and he'll just jump away instead of doing it.

    Zan: No, I've never been here before.  
    Axel: Let's press on and see what we find."
    
    Three ninjas will drop down from the right side of the screen
    and one from the left.  Still another will drop down from the
    middle.  While this is happening another will drop down from
    the right side of the screen.  Move right until you are near
    door and a guy will drop down right behind you.  After he's
    dispatched, walk up to the door.  You'll automatically
    destroy it.  
    
    As soon as you enter the next area you'll see a 1 UP in the
    upper right corner.  A dragon guy will drop down behind you
    as soon As you move right and three more drop down near the
    1 UP.  Both the things around the 1 UP conceal cash.  Deal
    with these idiots and go right.  You'll automatically break
    the door.
    
    In the next part a dragon guy drops down from the right side
    of the screen.  Advance towards him a bit and another guy
    will drop down behind you.  Inc ase you haven't noticed by
    now if you keep hitting them they'll do nothing.  Of course
    when you start fighting another one drops down.  And right
    after that another dragon guy drops down in the middle.  
    When you're done with them go right and another dragon guy 
    will drop down on the middle right side of the screen.  Then
    two more will drop down from the middle left and another from
    the middle right.  
    
    In the next part you'll quickly be ambushed.  A shirtless guy
    come from the left and two turqoise thugs from the right.
    There's an apple under the top statue.  During the fight
    another shirtless guy comes from the left.  Go right a bit to
    be uncountered by a fat guy, a blue goon, and two turqoise
    goons.  Move right and another turqoise thug will join.  A
    shirtless guy comes from the left during this madness.  A
    shirtless goon will come from the left and a turqoise goon
    from the middle right with a knife.  Move right a bit.  A fat
    guy will come from the right side of the screen.  Two purple
    guys will come from the left side of the screen, and a purple
    guyand a shirtless guy will come from the right side of the
    screen.  If he's alone the fat guy will get the ability to
    spit fire (!).  When you're prompted to move right three 
    dragon guys will come from the left and one from the right.  
    After one is finished another dragon guy will join from the
    left.  If you move right to the statues you will find the left
    statue conceals a turkey.  Once that's taken care of a spiky
    haired goon and another dragon guy will come from the
    elevator.  When you're ready to fight them another spiky
    haired goon appears.  When they're just about finished three
    spiky haired goons come from the left.  
    
    I don't think I need to explain the next area to you.  Just
    grab the bat and bash everyone who comes out of the door.
    Watch the far right and middle left though, as dragon guys
    will drop down.
    
    When the elecator goes up, that's when I can help.  Get on
    one of the extreme sides of the elevator, because three guys
    will drop from the middle, a black thug with a knife, a blue
    thug with a knife, and a shirtless thug with a knife.  There's
    also a turkey in that box, which you just might need.  After
    they are finished, get in the middle, because a blue thug
    will come from the right and a shirtless one from the left.
    When one is gone get to either side because two electric thugs
    drop right down the middle.  Another drops when you take out
    the other guy there.  When it goes up a pirate comes out of
    the door and from both sides an electric thug drops down.  A
    long haired thug comes out of the door.  When the elevator 
    goes up get low on the screen because an electric thug will
    drop from either side and an ugly woman from the middle.  A
    few moments after they drop down another ugly woman drops from
    the left.  A bit after that an ugly woman drops from the 
    right.  About 20 seconds after that another ugly woman drops
    down from the right.  About 30 seconds after that another ugly
    woman drops from the right.  
    
    "Axel: Mr. X!
    Mr. X: Welcome to my humble abode.  I've been expecting you
    for some time.  Tell me, Axel, what kept you?  
    Axel: Enough of your games!  What's going on?
    Mr. X: I am replacing the current city administration with
    some more dependable subjects starting with the chief
    of police.  
    Axel: What have you done with him?
    Mr. X: Relax.  He is in a safe place awaiting your rescue
    attempt.  Why don't you come and join me?"
    
    All this next part is is an endless onslaught from both sides.
    You don't need my help, you need MAD SKILLZ!  :Ŝ
    
    BOSS: Robot X
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    There is a very simple strategy to this Boss.  JUMP KICK 
    BEFORE he can do anything.  If he gets close to you and starts
    doing serious dammage just attack.  Also, his homing rockets
    won't hurt you if you punch them.  Easier than Shiva, IMO.
    However, don't grab him or stay close to him.  He has two very
    damaging attacks to remind you.  
    
    STAGE 5 CLEAR!
    
    1-7. Stage 6
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    "Robot X: I see you continue to destroy what I create.  It is
    obvious you will not join the syndicate so I have no further
    use for the chief of police.  You will not defeat my other
    robots so easily, Dr. Zan knows this model was an early
    prototype.
    Zan: He's right, Axel.  We must rescue the Chief of
    Police before the robot version appears in public."
    
    If you enjoy beating up robots that are almost impossible to
    hit, this stage is for you.  If you don't, it's not.  Right
    off the bat three robots will jump in from the left.  Go left
    a bit, till you find two boxes.  The left one conceals a
    plank.  That could be useful.  Anyhow, beat up the robots.  Go
    into the elevator.  Hit the down switch.  Go right.  Turn
    around after a while and take out the gun guys.  Go thorugh
    the middle door.  Some enemies will join you in that room
    after a while from the left.  Destroy the switch.  When you're
    done there you will automatically leave.  Get rid of the gun
    guys again and run to the elevator.  Hit the down switch again
    Go into the middle door again to find a room that is similar
    and has the same purpose.  After that switch is destroyed,
    run to the elevator, hit up, and go right until you find the
    chief.  I'm not sure what happens if you DON'T save the
    chief's life, but get to him.  Of course if you do, email me.
    I'd be eternally grateful and I'll be sure to give you
    recognition.  Also, if there's a different dialogue for if the
    gas doesn't start spraying, I'd like to hear it.
    
    "Dr. Zan: Thank goodness you're alive.  
    Chief: I feel weak but I am unharmed.
    Blaze: Chief, it's really good to see you again.
    Chief: Blaze, I'm glad you're still in shape.  I have no idea
    why I was kidnapped.  Does it have anything to do with the
    bombings?
    Dr. Zan: There's no time to explain, Sir.  You must get back
    to city hall, immediately.  
    Chief: You're right.  I have a press conference in an hour."
    
    When you start, go to the upper right corner to get a turkey.
    
    BOSS: Jet
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Hrm.  Constantly jump kick.  Also, if they lunge or fly at you
    jump kick.  If they're too close to hit, special.  Another
    thing, avoid those rockets they have float.  When Jet, starts
    doing the flamethrower move, special.  Oh, and if you get
    thrown... gah.  There's no point to hitting rockets unless
    they come at you since there's an infinite amount.
    
    STAGE 6 CLEAR!
    
    "Adam: Well, well, well.  If it isn't the old gang in trouble 
    again.
    Blaze: Adam!
    Adam: I got your message, Blaze.  Somehow I thought I might
    find you here."
    
    "Axel: Adam, you must get the Chief to City Hall.
    Adam: Why?  What's all the hurry?  He's safe now, and should
    get some rest first.  
    Axel: Mr. X has created a robot effigy of the Chief that will
    speak to the public at the press conference.  
    Adam: I see.  We must get the real Chief there before the
    robot so he can explain the danger and clear your name."
    
    1-8. Stage 7
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Right away three ninjas drop down from the middle and a biker
    comes from the right lower part of the screen.  One ninja
    drops a muramata.  The box hides a kusanagi.  Do NOT step into
    the metal circle, it's a trap.  Go right a bit, and a ninja
    will come from the left.  Go right some more.  The box hides a
    grenade.  Continue right.  Bikers will from the bottom,
    middle, bottom, middle, top, bottom, middle, bottom, middle,
    bottom.  The next biker will continue going through the middle
    until you take him out.  A ninja will drop from the left, 
    bikers will come from the left and bottom.  The bikers won't
    go away until you destroy them.  Four ninjas will drop from
    the right side of the screen.  Go right to find two robots
    from the right, a ninja dropping from the left, and a robot
    from the left.  Go right a bit and another robot will come
    from the right.  The box hides and apple.  During this fight
    another robot will come from the left.  Go right, beware the
    trap.  A ninja will drop down from the right.  There's another
    trap nearby.  Also, if you go right to the point of the box
    another ninja will jumpo out of the bushes on the right.  He
    wields a kusanagi.  When you go right, robots will come from
    both sides.  There's also a trap right before the pavement.  
    During the fight, a robot will come from both sides.
    
    In the next area, cyborgs will continually come from the 
    right.  The box hides some gold.  When the arrows appears you
    can go right.  A robot will come from the right.  Go right a
    bit more.  Two robots will come from the left and another from
    the right.  A robot and a gun guy will come from the left.
    Shortly after another robot and another gun guy will come from
    the right.  After a while another robot will come from the
    right.  Shortly after that, two more robots come from the
    left.  Go right.  Another three gun goons will come from the 
    right.  When you reach the boxes, punch the left one for
    apples.  When you're about done with the gun guys a robot will
    come from both sides.  Two more robots will arrive shortly
    after.  Go right.  Near the end of that ramp you'll find a
    Rocket and two robots.  The left box here has a bar of gold,
    the middle a turkey.  
    
    BOSS: Dr. Dahm
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Stay away from the claw.  When it drops down, nail it.  Don't
    touch the green lasers, you'll be electrocuted if you do.  
    After the claw is broken, you have to wait until the claw
    starts steaming to hit it.  
    
    "Brain: Dr. Dahm was the key to my plan.  Now that you've
    destroyed my robot factory, the city will pay for your 
    meddling, big time.
    Axel: Mr. X!  Don't you ever give up?  You're helpless.
    Surrender.
    Brain: That's where you're wrong, handsome one.  My loyal 
    followers in the syndicate have planted bombs throughout the
    city primed to denonate within the hour.  Even you will not
    be able to stop mass destruction.  
    Dr. Zan: Face it, Mr. X.  Dr. Dahm is no longer with you.  Do
    you expect to run the city from a glass phial?  
    Brain: Yes, traitor.  Let me show you how."
    
    BOSS: Robot Y
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Gah, constanly jump kick and special until the cows come home.
    
    STAGE 7 CLEAR!
    
    ENDING 1
    "Skate: We didn't manage to defeat him in time.  
    Axel: It's possible Adam found and defused the bombs.  
    Skate: But he didn't know where they were, Axel.  
    Brain: You may have defeated me, but I won't die alone!  
    Sadly, you will not witness the result of my efforts.
    Dr Zan: He has activated the self-destruct sequence.
    Skate: We've go to get out of here.  Now.
    Axel: We can't let Mr. X beat us now.  Look for a way out
    everybody.  
    Blaze: I can't find a way out- all of the doors are locked.
    Axel.  Skate.  Zan.  What are we going to do?
    Skate: Gulp.  I think we've had it.
    Adam: Hey, little brother.  You don't think I'd let you die,
    do you?
    Skate: Adam.  Are we glad to see you.  Get us out of here,
    fast."
    
    The screen pans out and you see a large explosion.
    
    "The syndicate's headquarters and robot factory were destroyed
    in the explosion and the team managed to escape in Adam's 
    helicopter.  But Mr. X succeeded in leaving his mark on the
    city.  The destructive force of the bomb explosions killed
    many people and wrecked many buildings.  It will take a very
    long time to repair the damage caused to the fabric of the
    city and the confidence of those citizens who trusted the
    forces of good to look after them."
    
    ENDING 2
    "Brain: I'm dying.  Please help me.
    Skate: Are you kidding?
    Brain: Well if I die, you die.  Good-bye [sic].
    Axel: This guy never gives up.  Let's get out of here.
    Skate: The place is going to blow up.
    Dr. Zan: He has activated the self destruct sequence.  We must
    hurry or we will die.
    Blaze: I can't find a way out- all the doors are locked.
    Axel.  Skate.  Zan.  What are we going to do?
    Skate: Gulp.  I think we've had it.
    Adam: Hey little brother.  You don't think I'd let you die, do
    you?
    Skate: Adam.  Are we glad to see you.  Get us out of here,
    fast."
    
    The screen pans out to an explosion
    
    "The syndicate's headquarters and robot factory were destroyed
    in the explosion.  Using Adam's police helicopter, the team
    managed to locate and defuse all the bombs planted by Mr. X.
    Dr. Dahm informed the polic of all the city officials who had
    been kidnapped whereupon their robot duplicates were destroyed
    and the real officials returned to their posts.  Dr. Dahm was
    placed in an asylum where he is said to be doing well.  Dr.
    Zan was pardoned by the city for his role in the overthrow of
    the syndicate.  The team spent some time together in the city
    and then went their seperate ways"
    
    In this ending you'll see the credits.

    ??? I'm not sure.  I'd appreciate it if you told me how to get
    it and even more grateful if you told me what it said.
    
    That's it.  It's all over.  And in the first version!  :Ŝ
