About the game [B1] | | | `._________________________________________________________________________.` | | |Toejam and Earl is an adventure game for the Sega Genesis and more recently| |the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console. When you play the game you can either | |choose to play a set game that’s the same every time, or a random game | |that’s different every time. There are 25 levels to the game. This game has| |a lot of replay value due to its randomly generated world and Toejam and | |Earl is definitely one of my favorite games for the Sega Genesis, and I | |hope I have helped you by putting this guide up. Thank you very much. | `._________________________________________________________________________.` | | | | _________________________________|___|___________________________________ .` `. | | | 2.3 Story [B2] | | | `._________________________________________________________________________.` | | |One day two hip aliens were ridin' around the galaxy in their awesome | |spaceship. Toejam, who is the smarter of the two aliens, was | |the driver. Earl, the dumber alien, wanted to drive really badly. Finally | |Toejam let him drive. Of course, Earl crashed into a Meteor and they both | |hurtled helplessly towards earth. Their spaceship broke into many pieces. | |Now they both must work together to get all of the ten pieces to their | | ship back while going through the many stages of earth. | `._________________________________________________________________________.` | | | | _________________________________|___|___________________________________ .` `. | | | 1.3 What are presents? [B3] | | | `._________________________________________________________________________.` | | |So, what are presents? How do they help Toejam and Earl on their important | |adventure? Well, presents carry many various items to help them. Presents | |can be found scattered across the whole world, but you can also buy some | |presents from a mailbox with "bucks" that you can find across the game. | |In a lot of situations your going to need some presents if you want to be | |able to do what you need to do without getting hurt or losing a life. | |But there can be downside to presents. Some of them are evil, and will hurt| |you whenever you use one. To prevent you from getting hurt and using | |presents safely, I have completed this short and simple guide to all of the| |presents and how they can help you. Remember that what a present looks like| |changes every time you play, but once you have opened an unknown present, | |that type of present's contents will be known for the rest of the | |playthrough. | `._________________________________________________________________________.` +_________________________+ | | | 3 List of presents [C1] | | | +-------------------------+ And now finally, here is the list of presents. Bonus Hi-Tops - Bonus Hi-Tops allow you to run by holding down the A button for a short amount of time. When you start the game you get four of these items at no cost to you, don't waste them though, you could end up needing then to run away from the boogie men found in level 6 and beyond. You can also jump over short gaps with the Bonus Hi-Tops, simply start running and just dash towards a cliff and you will instantly jump. If playing two-player, each player gets two Bonus Hi-Tops. Boombox - Makes a Boombox appear next to you and all surrounded enemies will start dancing, so you can easily sneak past them. This item is definitely best used when you are being surrounded by multiple enemies, as in, more then 3. Decoy - Deploys a Decoy that enemies will attack instead of you, useful when being crowded by enemies. Be sure that the enemy you are facing is closer to the decoy then to you, or they will go after you anyway. Doorway - Makes a Doorway appear. Upon walking through the Doorway you will be teleported to a different area of the level. This item is very rare and take caution in using it, on rare occasions it can teleport you to a small island that you can't escape from without Icarus Wings or Spring Shoes. You won't have to worry about this if you are playing on a fixed world. Earthling - Not a very good item, makes a random enemy pop up and attack you. In very rare cases you can get a helpful earthling but you usually just get something else that you don't want... Extra Buck - This present gives you a buck to spend on new presents or to rank up. I suggest ranking up with it when you find the opera woman, you gain more health from ranking up and it will help you in the long run. Extra Life - I don't think I really need to explain this one to any of you, hopefully you can figure out that this gives you an extra life. This present is very rare but you're going to be needing as many extra lives as you can get. Food - Gives you a random food item, Most food items heal your health but some can hurt you such as moldy cheese or icky fungus. Some of the best food items such as Fudge Sundae heal you for full health. Fudge Sundae - This present gives you a Fudge Sundae that restores all of your health. Make sure that you don't waste this item, only use it when close to death. Icarus Wings - Icarus Wings gives you the ability to fly for short amounts of time. This is useful for going across gaps but be sure you don’t strand yourself on a small island. The best time to use these is if you get stranded on an island from a doorway. Inner tube - The inner tube present lets you float across water with ease and not lose any health as you go, look out for sharks: they still hurt you, even when you're in the inner tube. Jackpot - The Jackpot present gives you 5 dollars, very useful but very rare. Promotion - Brings you up a new rank, ranks increase your health so you're going to want to gain as many ranks as you can. This is a very rare present though. Rain Cloud - Makes a rain cloud appear over your head and rain on you, slowly taking away health. You can dive into the water to avoid it, but you're going to have to come out eventually or you'll drown! Randomizer - Randomizes all of your presents, definitely not good if you knew all of them and had some good ones. Rocket Skates - These let you go around at incredible speeds (and over water). just look out for cliffs, it's very easy to fall off a cliff on these, they can be very hard to control. Root beer - Drink a Root beer and restore some health. Restores around half health. Rosebushes - Gives you rosebushes to place in front of your enemies. This blocks them so they can't get to you, these aren’t all that useful though and they're very common. After placing a rosebush, placing another makes the first one disappear. Be careful - you can be hurt by rosebushes. Slingshot - This present gives you a slingshot to shoot enemies. The only other way of hurting enemies is with tomatoes, so use these when there’s some tough enemies around. Spring Shoes - Lets you bounce upon holding the A button. Good for getting across gaps and getting away from enemies. Super Hi-Tops - This present is exactly the same as the Bonus Hi-Tops, so don't worry if you used all your Bonus Hi-Tops: You can still get these. Telephone - Pick up the telephone to uncover some pieces of your map, very good unless it uncovers useless spots or if you already uncovered the elevator/ship part. Togetherness - In a two player co-op game the present "Un-fall" becomes "Togetherness". When one player use the Togetherness present it brings him to the exact same spot as the second player, regardless of what level the second player is on. Tomato Rain - Makes tomatoes fall from the sky, they can hurt you so look out or dive into some water. Tomatoes - Gives you the ability to throw tomatoes at your enemies for a short amount of time, use them as much as you need, you only have them for a short amount of time so make good use of it! Total Bummer - This present kills you. Not what I would call a good present. There is a way to avoid this though, while getting shocked mash on the button to open up your present’s menu. When it opens you won’t be dead yet, quickly use a present that gives you some food and you'll be healed! Un-Fall - If you fall down to a previous level this brings you back up to your old level, not all that useful, it just saves some time. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 4 Other Stuff [D1] ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Please do not copy my guide into any other websites, or put it on your own.
