    As you begin the game, you are allowed to select what level to play. |        |
    You will notice a total of eight planets with four different samurais|   8 7  |
    around the screen, one next to each planet. Make sure you are        |  2 4 6 |
    looking at the walkthrough for the correct stage. Look at the chart  | 1 3 5  |

    Stage 1
    ________________________________________
                                                                                   
    Move slightly to the right and kill the first enemy that will appear. He will 
    drop an item that allows you to change samurais. Pick it up and since this is 
    one of the worse samurais. Now jump onto the wall and move to the right while 
    jumping onto the highest platform. Avoid the next enemy and kill the bird 
    floating around. Continue to the right on the top platforms. Kill the enemy 
    after the first jump and move to the right. Fall off the end of the roof and 
    jump onto the middle platform when you reach it. Move to the right until the 
    first enemy appears. Kill him and jump onto the highest platform. Kill this 
    enemy and move to the far right until you reach the end of this roof. 
                                                                                   
    Jump across the small platforms here to avoid falling in the gaps while killing 
    the enemies in your way. Now just continue to the right along the highest 
    platforms when you can. You will eventuallly reach the boss when you get to the 
    end of the buildings. This boss is fairly simple. He will stay along the ground 
    at all times but he is quick. He will quickly move towards you and then stop. 
    When he stops, he will swing each sword once. He will then stand there for a 
    couple of seconds and then move quickly towards you again to attack. That is 
    all he does. Simply time your jumps so you're in the air when he stops to 
    attack and attack him during his breaks. Keep doing this until he dies.
    ________________________________________
    
    Stage 2
    ________________________________________
                                                                                   
    Move to the right and you will see an enemy appear behind you. Kill him if you 
    want. Move to the right and kill or jump over the enemies in your way. When the 
    platforms get really low, two flying enemies will appear. They will just float 
    in their stationary spots and shoot at you. Move further to the right and kill 
    some more ground enemies. When the platforms get really low again, another 
    flying enemy will appear. Move just a little further to the right and you will 
    see small blocks above a large pit. Jump onto the first block. Two floating 
    enemies will appear. Hold jump to jump really high and as you move to the next 
    block, another flying monster will appear right in front of you. Jump on top of 
    him to bounce off and make it to the next platform. Jump across the next two 
    blocks and land on the regular platform for an enemy to appear. 
                                                                                   
    Enter what appears to be a space station for three enemies to drop down right 
    in front of you. Easily kill these and move to the right until you the dice 
    floating around. Simply avoid them since they don't really attack and jump over 
    the next gap while you avoid the two floating monsters. The next gap will be 
    pretty big but there will be floating monsters on the bottom of the screen. 
    Simply jump on their heads to bounce across here. Jump over the spikes while 
    you kill a couple more enemies. The next area will be a pain. Try to kill all 
    the enemies you come across and make small jumps so you don't hit the spikes in 
    the ceiling. Move a little further for the boss. This boss will float around in 
    circles on the right side of the screen and either shoot one or two shots. I 
    suggest standing on the small platform to the left to shoot and just avoiding 
    his shots until he dies.

    Stage 3
    ________________________________________
                                                                                   
    Fall down to the lower platform and kill the two enemies down here. Move to the 
    left and fall down the pit to reach the next screen. There will be one ground 
    enemy and two flying enemies, kill them and fall down the next pit. There will 
    be two ground enemies on each platform, kill them and fall down another pit for 
    the next screen. There will be two enemies on the middle platform and one on 
    each sider on the lower platforms. Kill them and drop down again. There will be 
    two floating enemies along the top and along the bottom of this screen. They 
    are pretty strong so just jump down and avoid them while you fall into the next 
    screen. Kill the enemy on the higher platform here and time a jump to go down 
    the next pit in between the lower enemies' shots. Kill the two enemies on the 
    higher platform and the one on the lower and then go down the pit. Just hug the 
    right wall to fall straight into the next screen. There will be one enemy on 
    each of these platforms, the lowest will shoot at you. Kill them one at a time 
    and fall down the pit in the bottom left. 
                                                                                   
    There will be two ground enemies around the middle and one flying enemy near 
    them. Kill them so you can reach the hole on the right side. Bounce off the 
    highest floating enemy here and move straight to the gap on the left. Climb the 
    stairs while killing the enemies to the right and fall down the hole. Kill the 
    two enemies on the right half of the screen and fall down the hole. Hug the 
    right wall and fall down the next hole. Kill the three enemies in this room and 
    fall down the hole to the left while making sure not to hit the spikes on the 
    sides. You will now face the boss. He will shoot a slow fireball immediately by 
    a fast fireball and then teleport somewhere on the screen along the ground. 
    Just jump really high during the first shot to avoid both of them. He will 
    teleport far right, middle, far left, middle, far right, middle, and far left. 
    After that, he will be about 1/4 of the width of the room from the right wall 
    and a 1/4 of the width from the left wall. He will repeat that one more time 
    and then repeat the whole pattern until you beat him.

    Stage 4
    ________________________________________
                                                                                   
    Fall down and move to the right. Two enemies will appear, kill the one in front 
    of you and then the one behind you if you want. Continue to the right when 
    ready. Move to the edge of this higher platform for three enemies to appear in 
    the lower platform below. Kill them and then jump onto the higher platform. 
    Kill the next enemy that appears and move to the edge of the next platform. An 
    enemy will appear on the conveyor belt. Kill him if you have a ranged weapon or 
    jump and carefully kill him. Move to the right and an enemy will be on the next 
    platform. Once you hit him, he will fly around so hit him again. Continue 
    jumping across the conveyor belts. Jump off the conveyor belts and more enemies 
    will appear below you. Try to jump over all of them and continue by climbing 
    the platforms to the right. Kill the enemy on the next low conveyor belt and 
    move to the next higher platform. Jump next to it for an enemy to fall down 
    from the top. Kill him and do the same thing on the highest platform, kill him 
    too. 
                                                                                   
    Kill the enemies on the next conveyor belts and jump over the spikes. Jump up 
    and hop on the conveyor belts. Crouch below the spikes here and kill the enemy 
    in the middle. Hop across the lower conveyor belts when you reach them while 
    killing the enemies. Climb up when you reach the end to the higher platforms 
    and continue to the right when you reach the top. Move across the conveyor 
    belts when you reach them in the tight hall while killing any enemies that 
    appear in front of you. Jump across the next two conveyor belts while killing 
    enemies in your way. The next room will have the boss. He will move quickly 
    from side to side with his sword out. Whenever he stops, he will fire two shots 
    at you. After the two shots, he'll charge each side again. Simply stay in the 
    middle and jump over the shots and his charge while you shoot him whenever you 
    can. It could be tough when you only have melee characters so be careful. Try 
    to lead your jump into him when he stops charging and then run.

    You will start this stage with enemies directly in front of you and behind you. 
    Kill them or jump over one so you don't have to worry about one behind you. 
    Drop to the lower platform and kill the two enemies down there too. Fall down 
    to the next screen. There will be an enemy on a higher platform and in the 
    bottom platform so kill them both and fall down the right or middle hole to the 
    next screen. Avoid the flying enemies and forget the shooting enemy to the 
    left. Just fall down the hole in the middle. Kill the two enemies on the 
    higher platform you land on and the one on the lower platform. Fall down the 
    left hole to land right on the middle platform and kill the two enemies here. 
    Continue downward and kill the lower enemy, drop into the next screen. Kill the 
    two enemies on the higher platform and drop to the lower to kill another enemy. 
    Move to the bottom left for the next screen. 
                                                                                   
    These flying enemies have a lot of health so avoid them and drop to the next 
    screen. Kill the two lowest enemies and drop to another screen. Drop down each 
    platform while killing off the enemies and drop to the next screen. Kill the 
    two lower enemies and fall to the next screen. Jump to the left and kill the 
    enemy in the top left. Drop down the gap when the birds are off to the right 
    side. Kill the enemy on the higher platform and then the lower enemies. Go down 
    the bottom right corner for the next screen. Jump down to the next screen while 
    avoiding these enemies and kill the enemy on the higher platform. Bounce off 
    the birds on the bottom to avoid the spikes and go down the hole. Kill the 
    enemy to the upper left and go down the hole for the next screen. You will 
    fight an easy boss. Just hit the statue and avoid its shots. It will shoot 
    either four or five shots at a time then stop. When it stops is your chance to 
    attack. Just make sure to avoid its attacks until you defeat it.

    Stage 6

    Jump to the lower right platform and kill the enemy. Forget about the floating 
    enemies and drop down to the next screen. Hug the right side and avoid all the 
    enemies, just move to the right and fall straight down to the next screen. Kill 
    these two enemies and drop down again. Stick to the right side and drop to the 
    next screen. Kill the enemies in the top left and drop down. Kill the enemy to 
    the right and move to the next screen. Kill the enemies to the left and drop 
    down. You have to kill the floating enemy blocking the drop so you may want to 
    kill the lower ground enemy. Kill the enemies here and fall down the hole to 
    the right. Kill the lowest floating enemy when you land and drop down the next 
    hole for another screen. 
                                                                                   
    Kill the enemies here as you move to the bottom of the screen and drop down. 
    Skip the floating enemies and drop down again. Drop down the right hole while 
    you avoid that floating enemy. Kill the enemies here and head for the bottom 
    left corner. Kill the enemy in the bottom left and jump around while attacking 
    the space around you. You will reveal some hidden blocks, use those to climb to 
    the top. Do that again to reach the next higher platform and drop to the next 
    screen in the bottom right corner. Drop down the next hole in the middle and 
    you will reach the boss. He will shoot his hands out. The hands will float 
    around and shoot too. He will shoot out of his head as well so be careful since 
    a lot of lasers are flying at you. After a while, his head will float around as 
    well. Try to destroy the hands and attack the boss whenever you can until he 
    dies.

    Move to the right and two enemies will fall from the top of the screen. Forget 
    about the left enemy and kill the enemy to the right. Continue to the right 
    while killing any enemies that fall in front of you. Jump onto the higher 
    platform and kill the two enemies up there. Kill the floating enemies and jump 
    onto the next platform. Kill the enemies here as you continue to the right. 
    Keep moving to the right while killing enemies in the way. When you get inside, 
    jump and attack just below and to the left of the platform to reveal a hidden 
    block. Use it to reach the higher platform and continue to the right. Three 
    enemies will fall down when you reach the middle of this platform, kill them. 
                                                                                   
    Move to the right and break the blocks to the left of the lower platform. 
    Continue down and to the right while you kill a couple more enemies. Jump over 
    the gaps and kill the enemies in your way. Climb to the top of the platforms 
    when you get inside again and kill the higher enemy. Break the blocks to the 
    right and fall down. Bounce across the floating enemies to get over this large 
    gap. Jump around the next room while attacking to reveal some more hidden 
    blocks. Use them to break through the wall in the top right to get outside once 
    more. Move to the right while killing the enemies until you get to the boss. 
    This boss will charge across side to side. Whenever he stops, he will fire a 
    slow shot and then a quick shot. Avoid those shots and the charge. Attack him 
    you can until he dies.

    An enemy will drop on each side. Kill them and drop down to the next screen 
    when you're ready. Kill the enemies here and drop down to the next screen. Kill 
    the two enemies in the middle platforms and then the teleporting enemy on the 
    bottom. Fall down the hole to the left and kill the two enemies on the lower 
    platform. Drop down the next platform to the next screen. An enemy will be 
    immediately to the left of you so hurry to the right. Just avoid the enemies in 
    this room and fall down to the next screen. Kill these enemies while you fall 
    down to the next screen. Stay in the middle and fall down the next hole 
    immediately. Kill the enemy on the higher platform and near the bottom as you 
    make your way to the next screen. 
                                                                                   
    Kill the two part enemy in the bottom left and move behind him for the next 
    screen. Hug the left wall and fall down to the next screen. Kill the two 
    teleporting enemies and the third standard enemy, fall down the hole to the 
    right for the next screen. Kill these two enemies and go down the hole in the 
    middle. Immediately move to the higher platform on either side and kill the 
    enemy as they fall with you. Fall down the left side for the next screen and 
    avoid the enemies in the top right. Kill the two part enemy in the bottom left 
    and fall down the left hole. Fall down to the bottom and kill the lower 
    enemies, fall down the hole for the next screen for the boss. The boss will 
    make two small bounces and then one large one as it moves from side to side. It 
    will then take two quick shots at you and bounce the same way to the other 
    side. Just keep attacking him while you avoid his jumps and attacks.

    Stage 9
    ________________________________________
                                                                                   
    You will begin this stage by selecting which character you want to use. The 
    stage is the same for every character so just pick whichever you want. Make 
    your way to the right and enemies will appear on the higher platforms as you 
    approach them. Kill them and continue to the right. Kill a couple more enemies 
    and jump over the gap. Climb the platforms to get over the wall and continue to 
    the right. Bounce across the floating enemies to make it to the next set of 
    platforms. Bounce off some more enemies to the last platform. Kill the enemy 
    there and continue to the right. Kill some enemies until you reach the highest 
    platform here. There will be two teleporting enemies so be careful. Kill them 
    and bounce across the next set of floating enemies to get over the large gap. 
    Use the next floating enemies to get past the next set of gaps without hitting 
    the spikes on the ceiling. 
                                                                                   
    Bounce across the next set of enemies to get to the next platform. Jump to the 
    higher platform without hitting the spikes on the ceiling. In the middle of the 
    platform, floating enemies will appear so kill them. Continue to the right 
    while killing the enemies in your way. Jump across these gaps and kill the 
    enemies until you reach the boss. He will shoot at a shot that will reach 
    around the middle and break into three shots. His movements will be jumping 
    from side to side. Avoid the shots and stay low while you attack him until he 
    dies. After he dies, another character will come out and turn into a boss. She 
    will fire two shots that will push you to the far side if it hits you. She will 
    float along the top to the other side while dropping bombs. Avoid her attacks 
    and just keep attacking her until she dies. When she dies, you'll free her from 
    the robot controlling her and complete the game.
