    ===================================DISCLAIMER==================================
    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com) to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.
    
    Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear
    anywhere at the following URLs:

    The controls for this game are very simple, and are as follows:
    
    A - Sets a bomb.
    B - Not used at first, but can be used to detonate bombs with the
        detonator powerup.
    
    Start - Pauses the game.
    Select - Pick between options on the main menu.

                                      (C) ENEMIES
    ###############################################################################
    
    ================
    Valcom (Balloon)
    ================
    
    Very simple enemies, slow moving, easy to kill, worth 100 points.  They just
    move back and forth (when they hit something) in a monotonous pattern 90% of
    the time.  They will rarely change direction, but they sometimes do, so be
    ready for it.
    
    
    ===============
    O'Neal (Beaker)
    ===============
    
    Simple enemies, faster than Valcoms, and many times they will change direction
    and come towards you, worth 200 points.
    
    
    ==============
    Dahl (Lantern)
    ==============
    
    These purple enemies are faster than the O'Neals, but move in a similar way,
    they're worth 400 points.
    
    
    ============
    Minvo (Face)
    ============
    
    These orange enemies move very quickly (faster than Dahls) in a back and forth
    motion much like the Valcoms.  They're worth 800 points each.
    
    
    =============
    Ovape (Jelly)
    =============
    
    These blue enemies move VERY slowly, and are VERY easy to kill.  They can
    travel through bricks, and they're worth 1000 points each.  They can also be
    killed while in the bricks if you blow up the bricks with a bomb.
    
    
    =============
    Doria (Ghost)
    =============
    
    These purple enemies move at medium speed and can travel through bricks,
    they're worth 2000 points each.
    
    
    ===========
    Pass (Bear)
    ===========
    
    These enemies move about as fast as a Minvo, maybe faster, and they want to get
    you more.  They're each worth 4000 points.
    
    
    =============
    Pontan (Coin)
    =============
    
    These guys are extremely fast and deadly, they can walk through walls and are
    worth 8000 points each.

                                      (D) POWERUPS
    ###############################################################################
    
    As you blast the bricks away in the game you will com across some powerups.
    These will make your game a lot easier, and come in a variety of forms.
    
    
    =====
    Bombs
    =====
    
    Allow you to set one more bomb at a time, you start out being able to set one
    at a time.  The maximum amount of bombs you'll ever be able to set down at one
    time will be 10, by using this powerup.
    
    
    ====
    Fire
    ====
    
    Increases the range of your bomb blasts by one square (in each direction).  The
    maximum range that you can get is 5 squares (in each direction).
    
    
    =================
    Detonator (Heart)
    =================
    
    Allows you to detonate your bombs whenever you want by pressing B.
    
    
    ================
    Speedup (Skates)
    ================
    
    Allow you to move twice as fast.
    
    
    =========
    Bomb-Walk
    =========
    
    Lets you walk through your bombs.
    
    
    ===========
    Wall-Walker
    ===========
    
    Lets you walk through walls (bricks).
    
    
    =======================
    Mystery (Question Mark)
    =======================
    
    Makes you invincible to enemies and bombs for 35 seconds.
    
    
    ===========
    Flame-Proof
    ===========
    
    Makes you invincible to your own bombs, lasts forever.
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                       (E) TIPS
    ###############################################################################
    
    Whatever you do, DO NOT bomb a powerup, or the exit.  This will cause more
    enemies (that are usually TOUGHER) to appear, and make life hard for you.
    
    You can walk through the exit.
    
    Always know the range of your bombs.
    
    Try to destroy multiple bricks with a single bomb.
    
    Try your best to exit the stage before the time is up, otherwise Pontans will
    show up, and they are hard to survive, much less kill.
    
    After every 5 stages you get to play a bonus stage.  Here you try to kill as
    many enemies as you can in the time limit.  You CAN NOT be killed in these
    stages.  Use this fireproof tactic: Set one bomb, then when it blows up let the
    fire touch you then keep setting bombs.  You will become a walking
    flamethrower!
    
    
    ###############################################################################
                                      (F) THE GAME
    ###############################################################################
                               Bricklayer J. Gastronomy
    
    For each stage I will tell you the number of enemies and which powerup is in
    the stage.  Basically stages 1-3 give you the basic tools you need to survive.
    The detonator in stage 3 being the big one, once you have this you really have
    no excuse for getting killed.  For this reason if you die in any of the first 3
    stages, reset.  The rest of the stages will give you more powerups to make you
    more deadly, which will help greatly for the bonus rounds and later levels.
    
    If you do happen to get killed though you will only lose wall-walker,
    detonator, bomb-walk and flame-proof powerups.
    
    The layout for every stage is randomly generated, the only thing that remains
    the same is how many enemies there are and which powerup is in the stage.
    
    Every stage has a 200 second time limit, and every bonus stage has a 30 second
    time limit.

    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address and paypal address for those that want to contribute are both
    dan.engel.2017 (AT) gmail (DOT) com
    
    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
