Welcome all to my walkthrough on a game that is based of a classic known
as a Gauntlet Legends, for the PlayStation. I hope this walkthrough
helps out as much as possible. Below is nothing but spoilers on the
game, so if you don't want to be spoiled, please take a detour and hit
the Back button now. However if you want to be spoiled or need some
help, please scroll down as far as you need to. Consider this as your
Spoiler Warning!

READER'S NOTE: This is gonna be a rather large FAQ which I will try to
cover as much as I can. To help you navigate through this FAQ easier, do
a quickfind on the particular section you're looking for. Example, if
you want to read the section on the Mountain Cave, do CTRL + F then type
in Mount#04 as it's the fourth stage of the Mountain Region (though you
should press it twice to find the correct section of course). Use the
Table Of Contents to help you better navigate. ^_^

  A: |Version Guide|

      Version 1.0: Just finished making the walkthrough for the game,
      and submitted it to GameFAQS (09/16/08)

      -----------------------------
  B: |The Story Of Gauntlet Legends|
      -----------------------------

     Story taken from Wikipedia.com:

        "In past ages, a corrupt mage named Garm used a set of
        Runestones to summon a demon named Skorne. However Skorne
        crushed Gram and imprisoned his soul in the Underworld. Skorne,
        fearing the power of the Runestones, scattered them throughout
        the four realms, so that they could never used against him. The
        player must defeat the end bosses of each of the four realms to
        obtain the four keys which allow access to Skorne's temple.
        While traveling through each realm, the player must also
        collect the 13 Runestones from where they have been scattered.
        The complete set of Runestones allows the player to pursue
        Skorne to the Underworld in order to finally destroy him."

      ------------------------
  C: |What Is Gauntlet Legends|
      ------------------------

     Gauntlet Legends is based off the original Gauntlet game. This is
     an action/adventure RPG type game, where you must battle your way
     through several stages in order to defeat the big baddie known as
     Skorne. You get to choose from one of four characters of your
     liking, and get to unlock four more characters. Through your many
     journeys, you will come across such fierce creatures and powerful
     items, as well as 13 Runestones which will help you defeat Skorne.
     It is up to you, to go through mountainous terrain, heavily
     guarded castles, overrun towns,  frozen wastelands, and massive
     battlefields, to save the day in this fun yet challenging game!

      ----------------------
  D: |About This Walkthrough|
      ----------------------

     This is gonna be a pretty good size walkthrough, so be ready for
     alot of info to be covered. Several times throughout the
     walkthrough I will probably repeat myself. A few times would
     possibly be necessary, such as a Boss guide, as well as a few
     other things. Sometimes I do this without even realizing it, and
     sometimes I do it to make it easier for people to find what they
     are looking for on this walkthrough. This guide, like others, is
     described on how I played/beat the game. You have your methods as
     do I. This is just my way of doing it. I hope this helps out in
     anyways possible.

     Oh, and in case anyone wonders how to play as the secret
     characters. On the Tower Map, press START and go to SELECT
     CHARACTERS, and you will be taken to a screen showing you the
     characters you've unlocked and can play as. However when using
     said characters, your current level stats will still be the same.

     Now in battle, keep an eye out for your Power Meter. There are
     different levels on it, to where you can perform special attacks.
     There are three level of
     attacks. Level 1 = Green,      LV. 3 LV. 2 LV. 1 LV. 2 LV. 1
     Level 2 = Yellow, Level 3 =    ----- ----- ----- ----- -----
     Red. This will charge up as   |RRRRR|YYYYY|GGGGG|YYYYY|RRRRR|
     you are either walking or      ----- ----- ----- ----- -----
     standing still. Once a color
     is bright, that level is completely filled, which means you can
     use your special attack of that particular level. Press the 'X'
     and SQUARE Buttons at the same time to use a Special Attack.

     Now as you progress in your levels, you will receive special
     rewards for reaching certain levels:

        Level 10 = You are now a Level 10 Hero!
        Level 25 = You are now a Level 25 Guardian!
                   (you will receive the Phoenix Familar, w00t!)
        Level 50 = You are now a Level 50 Champion!
        Level 75 = You are now a Level 75 Master!
        Level 99 = Now you are truly a Legend!
                   (you will receive 1,000 Thunder Hammers, w00t!)

SECTION 2: |WALKTHROUGH|
            -----------

      ----------------------
  A: |Before The Walkthrough|
      ----------------------

     1. This is a pretty extensive game, with multiple combinations of
        paths to take to get to the Goal. When you follow this
        walkthrough, I will describe how to get through each level via
        getting the Runestones, Obelisks, Secret Stages and Special
        Items. I won't sidetrack past that, but you are more than
        welcome to do so. If you do, you're on your own, but you can
        use my maps to help you get around.

     2. Speaking of maps, here is a rough map to the Tower Map.

                 1                LEGEND:
              -------             1. Mountain Region
          8  /       \  2         2. Castle Region
            /         \           3. Town Region
           |           |          4. Desecrated Temple
        7  |     9     |  3       5. Ice Region
           |           |          6. Battlefield Region
            \         /           7. Extra Region
          6  \       /  4         8. Items Shop
              -------             9. Gates Of The Underworld
                 5

     3. When it comes to handling the boss fights, while it's not
        required, it would help to get the Special Item that can be
        used on that particular boss fight. By using said items, will
        instantly take affect in battle, knocking out a more than 1/4
        of the bosses health. The catch is, that item won't be found
        till later in the game. Here is the Special Items, where they
        can be found and used on who:

                ITEM    |      LOCATION       |    BOSS USED ON
           ------------- --------------------- -------------------
            Ice Axe     | Castle Treasury     | Mountain Dragon
            Scimitar    | Mountain Cavern     | Castle Chimera
            Javelin     | Ice Fissure         | Town Plague Fiend
            Scroll      | Town Venomous Spire | Ice Yeti
            Soul Savior | Battlefield Towers  | Skorne

     4. So what level should you be? Of course you can be whatever
        level you feel comfortable with. However since you can get as
        high as Level 99 stats, I decided to spread out the levels
        throughout the game. This is my opinion (which may obviously be
        different from yours):

           Mountain Region    = Level 01 - 20
           Castle Region      = Level 21 - 35
           Town Region        = Level 36 - 50
           Ice Region         = Level 51 - 65
           Desecrated Temple  = Level 66 - 70
           Battle Region      = Level 71 - 85
           Underworld Gate    = Level 86 - 90
           Extra Region       = Level 91 - 99

        Best to use the Generators to help you boost up your stats. It
        may take forever, but it's the best way.

     5. For certain items found in the barrels and chests, specifically
        Food and Poison, it is random. What I have listed is what I
        come across in gameplay, so it might be different for you.
        Here's a hint, if you come across Poison, use a Magic Potion on
        it and it will become Food.

      ------------------------
  B: |AREA 1 - Mountain Region|
      ------------------------

     "My brother, Garm, used the power of the 13 Runestones to summon
     forth the demon lord Skorne. Skorne was too powerful for my
     brother to control and broke free from his magical bonds. Skorne
     tossed Garm out of my tower to parts unknown... With his freedom,
     Skorne summoned an army of evil and used my tower to send his
     minions to each of the Gauntlet Realms. Finally, he scattered the
     13 Runestones of power scross the known Realms; hoping the would
     never be gathered and used against him! Skorne has transformed the
     Sacred Cathedral behind this magical window into a citadel for his
     defense! To enter there you must recover the four magical shards
     of glass that are guarded by each of Skorne's servants.

     When the window is repaired, simply enter the Circle Of Light and
     you will be taken to the cathedral. Skorne has sealed my gateways
     with his evil magic and trapped my powers inside of magical
     Obelisks hidden in each world. Free my power from these Obelisks
     so that I can open the other worlds to you. With my last spell I
     opened the Mountain Kingdom. Skorne's forces have hollowed out the
     ancient volcano Yserbius and hidden one of the four shards there.
     Find a way into the volcano's core and recover the first of the
     four shards you'll need. Your quest begins..."

         -----------------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Mountain Valley (Mount#01)|
         -----------------------------------

        ITEMS: 2 Magic Potions, 7 Keys, Obelisk #01, 2 Notes, 300 Gold,
               7 Foods, Fire Breath, Speed Shoes
        ENEMIES: Green Trolls, Archer Troll

        You are now in the Mountain Valley, the first stage of a very
        long game. At the starting point, Green Trolls will come out of
        a Doorway Generator, so start whacking away at that till the
        generator is gone. Also here you will find some GOLD, a MAGIC
        POTION and a KEY, and further up the screen is another KEY.
        After collecting these items, make your way across the nearby
        bridge, where you will face more Green Trolls. Take them and
        the generator out and pick up the FOOD and FIRE AMULET nearby.
        Go over to the staircase now, and step on the red switch and a
        platform will rise up, which will have OBELISK #01 on it (touch
        that). After that, climb up the staircase (watch out for the
        fire) and at the top will be a KEY. Follow that path to pickup
        some FOOD and FIRE BREATH. After that, more Green Trolls will
        come out, so hack away until you the generator is gone. Also at
        this spot will be some FOOD and a NOTE (which talks about the
        Obelisks). Now that we have those, let's move on up the
        staircase. Up here, you guessed it, more green uglies and the
        black door of the green ugly maker. Take that out and around
        here you can pick up a KEY and FOOD, GOLD from the chest as
        well as a barrel.

        After that, head to the locked gate and go through it (using a
        Key obviously). Climb this next staircase and at the top is
        another KEY. Now follow the path left and continue onwards to
        find more trouble and another locked gate. Through the gate and
        up the stairs (I know, let's play king of the mountain!) and
        more Green Trolls will come out. Items to get here, would be a
        MAGIC POTION, FOOD, KEY and a NOTE (talking about the
        switches). Speaking of which, you just stepped on a red one
        which lowered the nearby door. Watch out for the fire and go
        through it and climb even more stairs (getting a workout
        already?). Up here is an annoying Archer Troll, so take it out
        quickly, as well as Green Trolls that will be marching towards
        you. At this spot there will be FOOD, SPEED SHOES and a KEY.
        Get all of those and climb up the staircase, blasting away at
        all the Green Trolls as well as the Green Troll Generator
        (which is halfway up). At the top will be some FOOD and the
        GOAL GATE. Grab the yummy and step on the gate. You have
        completed this level!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Mountain Region and step on
        the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ---------------------------------
     2. |Level 2: Mountain Peak (Mount#02)|
         ---------------------------------

        ITEMS: Speed Shoes, Rapid Fire, 9 Keys, 5 Foods, Levitation,
               3-Way Shot, 2 Magic Potions, 400 Gold, Note,
               Obelisk #02, Runestone #01
        ENEMIES: Green Trolls, Suicide Troll, Archer Troll,
                 Bomber Troll, Rock Golem

        You are now in the Mountain Peak, so here we go again! At the
        starting point, Green Trolls will come out of a generator so
        take all that out when you're ready. Also here is a 3-WAY SHOT,
        KEY and a MAGIC POTION. Collect those, then head over to the
        far right path to find another MAGIC POTION and KEY. You will
        hear yelling, which means a Suicide Troll is coming, so take it
        out before it hits you, then follow the path it ran on. FOOD
        and a Green Troll Generator will be here, so you know what to
        do. Next to the generator however, well what looks out of
        place. Yep, you guessed it, the brightly colored boulder.
        Strike at it three times to cause it to disappear only to find
        a red switch. Step on it and something will open. Now continue
        following the path, taking out more Green Trolls until you
        reach an intersection (don't worry about the locked gate, it'll
        just take you back to the beginning). Here will be some GOLD
        and a NOTE (talking about hidden switches in stuff, didn't we
        just discovered that on our own?!). From the treasure chest,
        head left up the hill, taking out more Green Trolls and the
        generator at the top.

        Here will be a 3-way intersection, and from here, head left of
        the generator and down the next steep hill. Down here is some
        FOOD and if you make your way up the next steep hill, you will
        see a KEY, GOLD, LEVITATION and OBELISK #02. And of course what
        open area wouldn't be complete without Green Trolls! Avoid the
        barrel as DEATH is in it! So with that, head over to the far
        pathway (along the wall) and climb up it. A Bomber Troll will
        throw bombs at you from above so be careful about that (just as
        annoying as the Archer Trolls). As you make your way up the
        hill, ignore the locked gate you pass up (but take out the
        Green Trolls), and head all the way to the end of this path.
        More Green Trolls are here, but so is a KEY so get that and
        follow the hill upwards and find another KEY as well as Green
        Trolls. After getting the item, head left and take out the
        Archer Troll. There is also SPEED SHOES here so grab that
        (ignore the decline hill past that). Now head through the small
        opening which has two paths.

        The right one is blocked off (for now), so head up the left
        path and as you do, big trouble will come your way in the form
        of a Rock Golem. Use your special attack to wipe this one
        out quickly. Also Green Trolls will come out, so take them out
        and the generator when you're ready. Items here will be a KEY
        and a NOTE (talking about a Runestone nearby). So how do we get
        it? Well in this area, head to the back corner. Notice anything
        out of place? If so, hit it three times to reveal a red switch
        and after stepping on it, head back down the previous hill and
        go through the newly opened right path. You should see a patch
        of grass sticking out of the wall, so right here, hit the wall
        a few times to reveal RUNESTONE #01. Continue up the hill some
        more to find more Green Trolls, which will easily gang up on
        you if you're not careful. Up here also is a MAGIC POTION
        (chest), FOOD, GOLD (pile of crap in the middle) and a KEY.
        Head over to the locked gate, and go through it and follow the
        path up then down the hill to the 3-way intersection. From
        there, head right up the long hill. At the top you will find a
        KEY and GOLD and the GOAL GATE. Collect the items and step on
        it to complete this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Mountain Region and
        step on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ----------------------------------
     3. |Level 3: Mountain Cliff (Mount#03)|
         ----------------------------------

        ITEMS: 7 Foods, Speed Shoes, 400 Gold, 13 Keys, 2 Notes,
               Poison, Obelisk #03, Invincibility, 3 Magic Potions,
               Invisibility, Fire Amulet, Death, Secret Stage #01
        ENEMIES: Green Trolls, Purple Scorpions, Red Scorpions,
                 Suicide Trolls, Archer Troll, Bomber Troll

        You are now at the Mountain Cliff. Starting off, Green Trolls
        will come out from a generator, and Purple Scorpions will crawl
        out as well, so deal with those. Items here are a KEY, GOLD and
        a NOTE (talking about the third Obelisk). After all that,
        follow the available pathway where the Purple Scorpions are
        coming through. You will see another KEY and some FOOD along
        the path, as well as Green Trolls coming out in a line followed
        by more FOOD. Continue following the path until you reach an
        open area. Here you will find a MAGIC POTION, KEY, GOLD, DEATH
        (in the chest) as well as Green Trolls and Red Scorpions. Now
        head to the chest and behind it is two paths you can take. You
        want to climb up the left path, and when you do and reach the
        top, Suicide Trolls, Red Scorpions and Green Trolls are here.
        Also here is a couple locked gates (as well as rising flames).
        The right one is what you need which will have a KEY and
        OBELISK #03 (make sure you touch it!). The left gate has Green
        Trolls, a KEY and FOOD.

        Now with that out of the way, head right back to the chest then
        from there, stay on the lower ground and continue going right
        and you will see a hill going downwards. Go down it, and down
        here you will find Green Trolls coming from a Green Troll
        Generator, so take that out. Also you will find FOOD and near
        that is a locked gate, which you will go through. Past that,
        FOOD in the chest, and further down the path is a red switch,
        which you will step on. This will cause a nearby closed gate to
        lower. Now head back to the previous hill, climb up it and
        continue onwards. An Archer Troll will be waiting for you, so
        take that out, and a KEY can also be found here. From where you
        found the key, continue following the pathway, taking out the
        Green Trolls that will come out to fight you, so take them out
        and the generator. Continue on is another Doorway Generator, so
        destroy that too. See the nearby hill going down, well head
        down it to find Purple Scorpions coming from a Pile Of Bones
        Generator.

        Also down here is GOLD (in a chest) and over by the wall, well,
        it looks a little odd, maybe we should strike at it! Do so and
        you will find a KEY and a red switch which will open a nearby
        gate. Now with that, head over to where the chest was, and go
        through the locked gate and take out the annoying Archer Troll
        (mostly because they piss me off ^_^), and get another KEY and
        step on the red switch. Now back up the short hill and continue
        onwards to find a NOTE (telling you about the switch in the
        wall, nice of it to state the obvious). After that, keep going
        through the newly opened gate and up the path to find more
        Green Trolls coming from a generator. Also here, a MAGIC POTION
        and KEY. Keep going past that to find another Archer Troll and
        Purple Scorpions, so dispose of them and cross the tiny bridge.
        Now it's gonna get crowded. First there's FOOD in the chest,
        and you'll face Green Trolls, Purple Scorpions and a Bomber
        Troll. It's best to either use a Magic Potion or your special
        attack to rid most of them. Anyways, continue the path to find
        a couple KEYS, FIRE AMULET and FOOD.

        After that, head down the tiny ramp and head to the back corner
        to find a red switch (opening a nearby closed gate), Now go
        left from the ramp and take out what might be an army of Green
        Trolls and follow that path all the way around (watch out for
        the rising fire). You will soon come to a bridge, which you
        will cross, collecting the INVISIBILITY BLOCK. Across the
        bridge, you will find Purple Scorpions and Green Trolls as well
        as a couple KEYS, MAGIC POTION (in the chest) and GOLD. In
        between that is a small hill, with Purple Scorpions climbing up
        it. Head down it, taking them out, and from there, going left
        will take you to a wooden door in the ground, which leads to
        SECRET STAGE #01 (rememeber this as you will be coming back for
        it later). Other than that, head right to find SPEED SHOES and
        the GOAL GATE. Collect the items and step on it to complete
        this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the wizard uses the magic of the
        Obelisks to lower the barrier leading to the next region. Now
        head back to the Mountain Region and step on the next Stage
        Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ---------------------------------
     4. |Level 4: Mountain Cave (Mount#04)|
         ---------------------------------

        ITEMS: 3 Magic Potions, Fire Amulet, Fire Breath, 400 Gold,
               2 Notes, 5 Foods, Rapid Fire, 8 Keys, Runestone #02
        ENEMIES: Red Gremlins, Purple Scorpions, Bomber Troll,
                 Blue Gremlins, Archer Troll, Red Scorpionsm,
                 Rock Golem

        You are now inside the Mountain Cave. So from the starting
        point, you are presented with two paths. Follow the path where
        the Red Gremlins are coming from (there will be Purple
        Scorpions as well). Make sure you take out the Small Volcano
        Generator as well. Also along this path will be GOLD and FOOD
        (both in a chest) and a NOTE (telling you about how gates can
        be lowered by switches). After that, you'll be at a 3-way
        intersection, where Purple Scorpions are coming from the right.
        From the 3-way intersection though, head left to find a KEY and
        along the left side of the path will be some brightly colored
        boulders (well, brighter than the other rock formations), so
        strike at that three times for it to disappear. In here, there
        is more Purple Scorpions and a generator. Items here, a KEY,
        GOLD in a chest, and GOLD on a switch. Get all that, then step
        on the red switch, which will do something.

        After that, head back to the 3-way intersection, then follow
        the south path all the way back to the starting point. Once
        back there, take the northwest path this time and follow the
        narrow path (guarded by two rising flames), and continue
        onwards, taking out the Bomber Troll and avoiding the rising
        flames. Cross through the recently opened gate and you will
        find Blue Gremlins coming towards you and some FOOD. You should
        now be at a 3-way intersection, and from there, take the left
        path and follow it around to find FOOD and a fake boulder.
        Destroy it to uncover a red switch which you will step on.
        Doing so and you will see a nearby platform rise up with the
        Runestone on it. So with that, continue along the path, taking
        out the small army of Red Grmelins gathering up and collect the
        KEY and GOLD (in the chest) and continue onwards with the path.
        As you do, you will see a closed gate, which you need to
        remember this spot, as you will be coming back to it very soon.

        In the meantime, continnue along the path, taking out Blue
        Gremlins and soon an Archer Troll and collect the FIRE AMULET
        (in the chest). After getting that, continue following the path
        to find FIRE BREATH and a red switch. Step on that then head up
        a bit more to take out the annoying Archer Troll. Now head back
        to the closed gate which is now opened up and go through it.
        Purple Scorpions will come out to greet you as you do, followed
        by Red Scoprions and Blue Gremlins, so make sure you take the
        lot of them out and their generators. Also here, you should see
        some fake boulders to your right, so take them out and follow
        that path, collecting the KEY and taking out the Archer Troll
        plus another one across the lava pool. You should see a red
        switch which you need to step on, and after that head back
        through where the fake boulders are, and continue along the
        path to the 3-way intersection.

        From there, head up the path to find a Rock Golem. Take out
        that and ignore the chest near there (it has Death) but get the
        FOOD. Take out the fake boulders to the right and go through
        it, collecting the MAGIC POTION (in the chest) and you will
        hear the screams of a Suicide Troll so take out. Now from the
        chest, follow new path you see, and soon you will come to the
        GOAL GATE. Ignore that for the moment, and collect the RAPID
        FIRE (in the chest) and continue to follow the path, taking out
        Purple Scorpions and then it's generator. A KEY can be found
        here as well as fake boulders but ignore that. Instead continue
        along the path (watch out for the rising flames) and soon you
        will find RUNESTONE #02 along the ledge of the lava pool. Now
        get that, then backtrack your way back to the GOAL GATE and
        step on it, which will complete this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Mountain Region and
        step on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -----------------------------------
     5. |Level 5: Mountain Cavern (Mount#05)|
         -----------------------------------

        ITEMS: Electric Shield, 9 Key, 9 Foods, 3 Magic Potions,
               3-Way Shot, Runestone #03, 500 Gold, 3 Notes,
               Rapid Fire, Electric Amulet, Special Item #01: Scimitar
        ENEMIES: Purple Scorpions, Red Scorpions, Red Gremlins,
                 Blue Gremlins, Rock Golem, Archer Troll,
                 Bomber Troll

        You are now inside the Mountain Cavern. At the starting
        point, Purple Scorpions will come out so take them out and
        their generator, then follow the only path ahead of you. As you
        do, a MAGIC POTION will be in the barrel, so get that and
        continue onwards. Bomber Troll, Red Scorpions, and Red and Blue
        Gremlins will be in this large area, as well as 2 FOODS, KEY
        and a NOTE (talking about searching the walls for secrets).
        After getting those, continue along the path until you get to
        another large area. While it appears that there is many paths
        to take, there isn't, so take the only pathway available which
        is north. Blue Gremlins will come down the pathway, so take
        them out as you go. Soon you will come to a 3-way intersection
        and from it, continue going up the screen and you will come to
        a dead end. At this dead end, 2 KEYS and a 3-WAY SHOT, plus
        Blue Gremlins will come out and an Archer Troll is here. Also
        while you're here, take notice of the fake boulder near the
        rising fire. Strike at it three times to reveal a red switch,
        which you will step on, which will cause a pathway to rise up.

        After that, head back to the 3-way intersection and this time
        go right to find Red Gremlins coming from a Small Volcano
        Generator. Take it out, and collect the KEY and FOOD here, then
        go up the screen (where the Blue Gremlins are coming from).
        Follow the new path and take out the Bomber Troll as well as
        the Gremlins and their generators. Here in this area, 3 FOODS,
        2 GOLD, a KEY and DEATH is scattered about, so collect all
        (except for the obvious one of course). As you do, you will
        uncover a red switch hidden under a barrel. Step on it and
        another new pathway will open. So with that, simply head right
        following the path. In this smaller area, a MAGIC POTION awaits
        for you in the corner. Get that, and continue following the
        path, taking out Red Gremlins and Purple Scorpions, as well as
        the Archer Troll. Nothing is here, so just continue along the
        path as you were and soon you will be in another big area,
        which has a KEY, MAGIC POTION and a NOTE (which talks about the
        Scimitar weapon). After that, Blue Gremlins will come out and
        so will Red Scorpions. In this next area, it's a 3-way
        intersection, and from it, head right (where the Blue Gremlins
        are coming from) and keep going to the next area.

        In here, an ELECTRIC AMULET is in the barrel, and a red switch
        is under that, so step on it, which will actually cause a
        nearby platform to rise up. This is actually an elevator which
        will take you to a lower area (REMEMBER THIS!!!). Ignore this
        for now, and instead continue following this pathway and in
        this next area is Red Gremlins and Red Scorpions. Also here is
        an ELECTRIC SHIELD, GOLD, FOOD and a NOTE (which tells you that
        breakable walls are burnt). Speaking of which, look at the
        wall, see how a small part looks different. Well I guess that
        means you must strike at it three times. Doing so, and you will
        reveal GOLD and a red switch, which you will step on. Also in
        this area, in the back corner is a fake rock pile. Take it out
        to reveal another red switch. Step on that, then head to the
        nearby corner to see a new pathway opening up. Head down this
        new pathway to find a small area, which has a KEY, FOOD (in the
        chest) and RUNESTONE #03 in the middle. Now head back up the
        new pathway, and back to the red switch elevator, then from
        there, back to the 3-way intersection. Once there, head left
        (where the Red Gremlins are coming from) and in the next area,
        in a corner is a fake pile of rocks.

        Destroy it to uncover a red switch, which you will step on.
        After that, head back to the red switch elevator, and board it,
        taking you down to the secret area. Down here, there is a KEY
        (in the barrel), and after that, simply walk a few more steps
        to claim SPECIAL ITEM #01: SCIMITAR. This will come in real
        handy in the next region ^_^. Now back on the elevator you go,
        then head back to the 3-way intersection and continue going
        left, and keep following the pathway to another 3-way
        intersection (well it will be one). Take out the Red Gremlins
        found here as well as their generator. From this one, head left
        and follow the path to another big area. In here, more Red
        Gremlins as well as a Red Scoprions and Archer Troll. Items
        here area a KEY, FOOD, RAPID FIRE and GOLD hidden in the wall,
        plus there is a red switch you need to step on. Now after that,
        head back to the previous 3-way intersection and then take the
        newly created pathway down the hill and you wil find a Giant
        Golem, so take that out quickly. Also here, GOLD so get that
        and step on the GOAL GATE which will complete this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to Mountain Cliff (Stage 3)
        and make your way to the Secret Stage entrance. Stand on it,
        and get ready for a fun secret stage!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         --------------------------------
     6. |Mountain Secret Stage (Mount#06)|
         --------------------------------

        ITEMS: 125 Purple Coins
        ENEMIES: None

        For this secret stage, you will have 75 seconds to find 125
        Purple Coins. Make sure you have a Rapid Fire in your
        Inventory, because it will help. On this south half, there is
        65 Purple Coins, so it's best to work your way from right to
        left. With that, start heading right down the narrow path
        collecting the Purple Coins and work your way around the corner
        and then collect the coins on the right half of this area. Once
        you are done there, collect the remaining coins, including the
        ones directly left of the starting point. Once you have 65
        Purple Coins accounted for (keep an eye on your counter in your
        Status Screen), head to the far left side and go directly
        upwards.

        On this north half, there should be 60 Purple Coins. This might
        be slightly tricky, but if you've made it here between 35 and
        40 seconds, you're doing good. Now after getting first several
        coins in this half of the room, head right (make sure you get
        the ones tucked away in dead ends) to the 3-way intersection.
        Now when you go south, you will see two pairs of 5 Purple Coins
        locked away. If you have Rapid Fire, use it to take out the
        walls quickly and collect the coins. Now head back to the 3-way
        intersection and continue going right, collecting the remaining
        Purple Coins (including some in dead ends). After the last
        Purple Coin is collected, you will have unlocked a brand new
        character known as the Minatour!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, with the Minatour secret character unlocked,
        let's head over to the Items Shop. You should have about 2,000
        Gold. I'd say buy a couple Thunder Hammers and Rapid Fire. Now
        with that, head back to the Mountain Region and step on the
        final Stage Gate as we move onto a boss fight!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ----------------------------------------------
     7. |Mountain Region Boss Stage - Dragon (Mount#07)|
         ----------------------------------------------

        ITEMS: 3-Way Shot, Food
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Ice Axe (Found in Castle Treasury)

        Time to slay the dragon! This fight will actually be rather
        tough, mostly because the Dragon has an attack which when he
        stomps, he will send out a shockwave that is unavoidable and
        will do some major damage to you. His other attacks involves
        breathing out a few streams of fire back and forth, which you
        can avoid. Another attack which you must completely avoid is if
        you get too close, he will swipe at you with his claw which
        will be next to instant death for you. There will also be some
        rising fires here to provide as an extra obsticle. Items here
        are FOOD (under the bosses right paw) and a 3-WAY SHOT. What
        you need to do, is get halfway up the screen, but don't get any
        closer than that, and start unleashing your Thunder Hammer on
        him, which will take his life down alot. If you run out of
        that, stand back and use your 3-Way Shot and Rapid Fire Combo
        on him which will finish him off. This will take some
        persistance, but you will win!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the magical glass mirror piece takes
        its place in the window frame. Now head over to the Castle
        Region and step on the first Stage Gate as we move onto the
        next level.

 C: |AREA 2 - Castle Region|
     ----------------------

    "The Valkyrie's Castle is now a stronghold to the wretched soliders
    and undead knights of Skorne. The courtyard is your best entry
    point. The gates are smashed and catapulted boulders have weakened
    the walls. You'll have to fight through the dungeons and armory up
    to the highest parapet where the castle guardian holds the next
    shard of my window. Take back this hallowed fortress."

         -----------------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Castle Courtyard (Cast#01)|
         -----------------------------------

        ITEMS: 15 Keys, 3 Foods, Invincibility, Phoenix Familiar,
               3 Notes, 3-Way Shot, Runestone #04, 3 Magic Potions,
               Poison, Fire Amulet, 400 Gold, Obelisk #04, Death
        ENEMIES: Purple Rats, Armored Guards, Brown Rats, Golem Guards,
                 Archer Guard, Suicide Guard, Bomber Guard

        You are now at the Castle Courtyard, which luckily for you,
        this is rather straightforward. So at the starting point, you
        will be greeted by Purple Rats and Armored Guards, so take
        them all out right away. Also here, 2 KEYS, MAGIC POTION and a
        NOTE (giving a hint about the location of the Runestone). With
        that, head down the screen to find a red switch, which you will
        step on, causing the nearby gate to open. At this 3-way
        intersection, head right taking out the Armored Guards, and
        collect the 3-WAY SHOT. There will be an Archer Guard, but you
        can't reach that. Now head back the opposite way to collect the
        KEY. At that point, head through the locked gate you see and
        take out the Archer Guard at the end of the path. Also at the
        end, look at the hedge, notice anything unusual about it? If
        the answer is yes, you know what to do then ^_^. With that,
        take out the Doorway Generator and any Brown Rats that will
        come out. Now the wall ahead can be destroyed, but ignore that
        for now. Instead head down the pathway collecting 2 KEYS. After
        getting the second Key you should see a staircase. This can
        easily be missed so listen up. Directly across from the
        staircase in the burned out blackened area, is a catapult,
        which you can go through there. When you do, hang a left and
        start striking at the boulder. This will reveal RUNESTONE #04.

        Now head back off of the catapult and from the staircase, head
        left to find DEATH (use a Magic Potion) in the corner and a KEY
        past that. Now back at the staircase, climb up it and through
        the locked gate. Go right to find a KEY, FOOD and a NOTE
        (telling you where the Obelisk is hidden at) and a red switch.
        There will also be Brown Rats and Archer Guards so take them
        out. Now back to the staircase and this time go left (watch out
        for the rising spikes) while being on the upper floor. Collect
        the INVINCIBILITY METAL and head down to the corner and take
        out the Suicide Guard and Armored Guards you see. At the corner
        is a red switch and a dirt pile in the corner. Strike at it to
        find and collect a MAGIC POTION. From there, continue following
        the pathway, down the short staircase to find Armored Guards,
        Purple Rats, Archer Guards as well as GOLD, POISON and a NOTE
        (saying that secrets lie behind cracked walls). After that,
        continue on down the path to find more Armored Guards coming
        from a Doorway Generator (so take it out), as well as a KEY.
        After that head up the screen through the narrow pathway (watch
        out for the rising spikes) then up the staircase to the upper
        level, where you will be greeted by an Archer Guard. Also up
        here is FOOD and a breakable wall which has something in it,
        but I'm not sure what (if you know, let me know and you'll be
        credited ^_^).

        After that, head down the wooden path way, collecting the KEY
        and taking out the Archer Guard. After that you will be at the
        corner, so go through the locked gate and take out that Archer
        Guard and Doorway Generator and collect the MAGIC POTION and
        step on the red switch. After that, continue down the wooden
        path (getting the KEY) to the end and climb down the staircase
        you see. Down here, Armored Guards will come out, so take them
        all out and get the KEY and go through the locked gate and take
        out the Brown Rats as well as the Haystack Generator. Here you
        will find a KEY in the barrel. You will also see a red
        teleporter. Now step on this it will transport you to the next
        one (why not just an open pathway instead?). Here, Purple Rats
        and another generator, so take that out and step on the next
        red teleporter. After this, you will see Armored Guards (take
        them out) and a red switch (step on that). Also here, in the
        corner near the generator, strike at the wall to reveal a KEY.
        After that, head down the screen and go through the locked
        gate, taking out the Armored Guards and the Doorway Generator.
        Here you will find GOLD in the chest and at that spot, you will
        notice a tiny pathway in the acid pool.

        Walk across and step on that red switch and then continue
        onwards through an opened gate. Take out the Armored Guards and
        their generator here and step on the red switch and collect the
        FOOD in the chest. Zigzag your way through this hedge area,
        avoid rising spikes, killing Armored Guards and collect a KEY
        and NOTE (which says to destroy everything!). Outside of the
        hedge area, you will then be faced with an army of Brown Rats
        and Armored Guards and an Archer Guard so take all of them out
        quickly (and their generators) before you get too badly hurt.
        There will be a red switch as well, so step on that and
        continue onwards to find a KEY (under the fake boulder) and
        GOLD (in the chest). After that, watch out for the rising
        spikes and then climb the staircase to the higher level. Up
        here, you will be greeted by Brown and Purple Rats, so take
        them out, as well as an Archer Guard who you can't see, but can
        strike at. After that, you should be in a corner, which you can
        go through the locked gate, taking out the Golem Guard and
        collecting the PHOENIX FAMILIAR as well as stepping on the red
        switch. After that, continue following the pathway, down the
        staircase and you will find another Archer Guard, so destroy
        that. After that, keep going up the staircase taking out
        another Archer Guard.

        Continue down this wooden path to find GOLD in the barrel, and
        at the end you can strike at the wall to find a FIRE AMULET.
        Also here is Brown Rats, so take them out and destroy their
        generator, and step on the red switch you see. After that, head
        down the staircase and keep following the pathway and you will
        hear a Suicide Guard come at you, so hit it before it hits you.
        After that, continue onwards until you reach another corner. Go
        through the locked gate and take out the Archer Guard, Doorway
        Generator and get the GOLD (from the chest) and step on the red
        switch. After that, keep going down the path, taking out the
        Archer Guard and avoid the rising spikes as you climb the short
        staircase. Now at this next corner, another Golem Guard is
        here, so destroy it and you will have found OBELISK #04, so
        touch that. Now keep following the pathay, over the rising
        spikes and up the staircase and keep going down the path. Soon
        you will see Armored Guards coming down a short staircase, so
        take them out and make your way up it. Take out their generator
        and continue following this path to find the GOAL GATE. Step on
        that and you will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Castle Region and
        step on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ---------------------------------
     2. |Level 2: Castle Dungeon (Cast#02)|
         ---------------------------------

        ITEMS: Obelisk #05, Levitation, Runestone #05, Food, 3 Keys,
               Death, 300 Gold, Acid Amulet, 2 Magic Potions,
               Posion, 2 Notes
        ENEMIES: Armored Guards, Purple Rats, Bomber Guard, Brown Rats,
                 Archer Guard, Suicide Guard, Bomber Guard, Golem Guard

        You are now in the Castle Dungeon, which is kind of a short
        level, so it won't be that bad. By the way, as you listen to
        the music for this level, you will hear men screaming. Yes it's
        creepy, but no I haven't wet my pants yet. Anyways from the
        starting point, head down the stairs, taking out the Armored
        Guards and the generator and continue going down the staircase.
        As you do, you will pick up a MAGIC POTION. Once you get down
        the stairs, you will be at a 3-way intersection, which will
        consist of Armored Guards and Purple Rats. Also here, turn and
        face the wall and strike at the wooden window to reveal a
        secret room which has a KEY and RUNESTONE #05 in it. Get the
        Key (don't worry, you'll be back for the Runestone soon
        enough), and at the 3-way intersection, head down the left
        staircase first, watching out for the rising spikes and POISON.
        At the bottom of the stairs, an army of Armored Guards and
        Purple Rats will swarm you, as well as a Bomber Guard from a
        distance. Take out all the enemies and next to the Doorway
        Generator, strike at the window to reveal another secret room
        which has red switch in it which you will step on.

        Now, while still on this lower level, get the FOOD from the
        chest and step on the red switch under it (watch out for the
        rising spikes). After that, head back up the staircase and this
        time head down the right staircase. Down here, a KEY and NOTE
        (telling you to check under every chest to find something you
        need). Get those, and then step on the red switch you see then
        go back up the staircase and down the left staircase and follow
        the path to a newly raised bridge that you can cross over. Do
        so, and at the otherside, take out the Purple Rats, Brown Rats
        and Archer Guard and then just make your way across this area
        to the rising spikes. Past that, go down the small ramp to find
        a Golem Guard and Archer Guard, so take them out quickly. Also
        here is a ACID AMULET (in the chest) and DEATH (in the barrel),
        as well as two red switches, which you need to step on them
        both, one lowering the gate in front of you and the other, for
        something important. Anyways, go through the opened gate and
        you will hear a Suicide Guard, so take that out and the Armored
        Guards coming out.

        Over in this area, simply head over to the wall and up the
        staircase, then across the small bridge and continue onwards
        until you reach a 3-way intersection with stairs. From here,
        head down the staircase first, to collect GOLD and to step on
        the red switch. Now back up the staircase, then go up the right
        staircase. Armored Guards and Brown Rats will come out, so
        destroy all of them and their generators, as well as the Archer
        Guard. Also up here is a MAGIC POTION and a NOTE (telling you
        to find the Scimitar before facing the boss of the Castle
        Region, something you probably knew about beforehand). Also
        here is a red switch, which you need to step on. Once you do,
        head across the wooden bridge, taking out Brown Rats and their
        generator. Next up, a KEY and 2 GOLDS is here, so get those and
        head across to the rising spikes and onto the gated bridge,
        where a red switch is that you need to step on. After that,
        time to do some backtracking. Head back across the previous
        wooden bridge, then continue following the path to the
        staircase. Go down them, and then continue going left from the
        3-way intersection, and down another staircase.

        Take out any enemies that may be in your way and follow the
        path to the otherside where you will see a gated bridge. On
        here, another red switch will finally be available. Step on
        that, and from the gated bridge, head left and then up the
        staircase and into the secret room where you saw the Runestone
        before. Now you can finally get it, so do so. After that, now
        head back to where you were beforehand. Don't worry, I'll wait
        *surfs Youtube*. Okay, back on course, good! Now in this next
        area, you will see a staircase and a red switch. Head over and
        step on the red switch and in the nearby corner is OBELISK #05.
        After that, head along the side ledge and strike at the wall to
        find LEVITATION. This is unimportant, so don't worry about
        getting to it. Anyways, head over to the staircase and climb up
        it, taking out the Armored Guards. Continue climbing up the
        staircase to find another red switch. Step on it if you want,
        it'll give you access to the Levitation (which I said is not
        necessary to get). After that, continue heading up the
        staircase, taking out more Armored Guards. At the top you will
        see the GOAL GATE, so step on it and you will have completed
        this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Obelisk will do it's magic on
        the barrier for the next region and the Runestone take its
        place in the center of the tower. Now head back to the Castle
        Region and step on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next
        level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         --------------------------------
     3. |Level 3: Castle Armory (Cast#03)|
         --------------------------------

        ITEMS: Acid Breath, Death, 13 Keys, Invisibility, 3-Way Shot,
               4 Magic Potions, Speed Shoes, 500 Gold, 4 Foods,
               3 Notes, Electric Amulet, Runestone #06
        ENEMIES: Ghost Knights, Purple Rats, Archer Guard, Golem Guard,
                 Bomber Guard

        You are now in the Castle Armory, and let me tell you, this one
        drove me nuts getting through, so bare with me on this as you
        will be backtracking alot! At the starting point, you will be
        greeted by Ghost Knights, so take them out and the Suit Of
        Armor Generator. Items here include a 3-WAY SHOT, KEY and a
        NOTE (giving you a hint on where the Runestone is). With that,
        head left and go through the locked gate. In this next area,
        more Ghost Knights as well as Purple Rats and an Archer Guard,
        so take them out and collect the 2 KEYS, GOLD (in the barrel)
        and FOOD (in the chest) and DEATH (in other chest). There's a
        red switch here too, so step on that, then backtrack to the
        start and head through the right opened gate area. In this
        area, is Purple Rats and Ghost Knights, as well as 2 KEYS, FOOD
        and a red switch, which you will step on. Now head left to
        where you stepped on the previous red switch to find another
        one. Step on that one then head right to find another red
        switch rising up (WTF IS THIS INSANITY?!). Step on that switch
        and two gates will open up. To find them, head down the nearby
        staircase and as you do, Ghost Knights will come out, so take
        them out. Down here, head right and follow the path, stepping
        on another red switch, and continue following the path until
        you hit the dead end.

        Once at the end, turn to the dark wall and strike at it to
        reveal GOLD. Now do a complete 180 turn and strike at the short
        wall to reveal that it was fake. After that, go through there
        to find Ghost Knights and Purple Rats, so take all of them out.
        Ahead of you is an ELECTRIC AMULET in the chest, as well as a
        MAGIC POTION, GOLD, and a KEY as you follow this short path.
        Other than that, head right to find a NOTE (telling you about
        the Golem Guard ahead of you). Speaking of which, head forward
        to find the Golem Guard as well as more Ghost Knights. Take out
        what you can, and collect the KEY and step on the red switch.
        Before going anywheres else though, head over to the corner and
        strike at the staircase to reveal INVISIBILITY. After that,
        back out and head down the screen to find two Suit Of Armor
        Generators, so take them out quickly. Also here, is a KEY so
        get that, and continue following the path to find another KEY
        at a 3-way intersection. From there, head right and follow the
        path all the way around, taking out Ghost Knights and their
        generator, and go through the locked gate. Once through that,
        you will find a red switch which when you step on it, you will
        see a nearby gate lower. After that, backtrack all the way to
        the previous 3-way intersection and this time go left from it,
        past the rising spikes and at the next 3-way intersection, head
        left, taking out more enemies.

        After that, go through the newly opened gate and head down the
        staircase. As you do, you will hear a Suicide Guard and see
        more Ghost Knights and Purple Rats. Simply fight your way
        through here carefully and on the lower floor, head down the
        screen alongside the wall, taking out more enemies as well as a
        Bomber Guard. Items include a MAGIC POTION and a KEY. As you
        continue along the wall, you should see a Suit Of Armor
        Generator. Well, next to it, strike at the differently designed
        wall to reveal a red switch. Now here's the fun part, you have
        to go all the way back to the starting point (which I shall
        guide you to). Step on the red switch, and backtrack to the
        previous staircase you were at. Climb up it, then head up (or
        left) the screen a bit collecting the MAGIC POTION (in a
        chest), GOLD (in a chest), then across the rising spikes and
        get the ACID BREATH, and KEY. After that, head through the
        locked gate, and once through it, there is a KEY to the right,
        but more importantly, head straight up the nearby staircase. At
        the top, head right and continue going right until you reach
        the starting point. Once there, head up to find RUNESTONE #06.

        Now after that, head all the way back to the previous red
        switch which started this major backtracking. Again I shall
        wait for you *surfs message boards*. Once you finally made it
        back there, head across to find a NOTE (telling you to
        backtrack if you can't go forward). You should also notice some
        Ghost Knights come from behind you. Follow them and you will
        find FOOD and SPEED SHOES and a red switch (which you should
        step on). Now back to the Note was, head around the wall to
        find a staircase. From there, head to the right of the
        staircase to find FOOD tucked away in the corner beside the
        fire pit. Now back to the staircase, and climb up it, taking
        out more Ghost Knights. At the top, follow the path, taking out
        more enemies and their generators, and avoiding the rising
        spikes. Soon you will be at another staircase. Just past that
        is a MAGIC POTION and KEY. Get those and climb up the stairs
        (taking out more Ghost Knights) to find GOLD at the top. After
        that, continue along this pathway up the stairs, taking out
        more enemies. Once you reach the top, continue following the
        path and soon you will find the GOAL GATE. Step on that, and
        you will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Castle Region and
        step on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

     4. |Level 4: Castle Treasury (Cast#04)|
         ----------------------------------

        ITEMS: Fire Amulet, 4 Magic Potions, Food, Poison, 8 Keys,
               4 Notes, 600 Gold, Invisibility, Death, Electric Amulet,
               Electric Shield, Special Item #02: Ice Axe,
               Secret Stage #02
        ENEMIES: Purple Rats, Ghost Knights, Brown Rats, Golem Guard,
                 Archer Guard, Suicide Guard, Bomber Guard

        Here you are, in the Castle Treasury, and this level will be
        rather confusing to get through. At the starting point, it
        would appear you have many choices. So let's start off with
        heading left and down the staircase. You will find Ghost
        Knights coming out, so take them out and their generator. Items
        are MAGIC POTION and a KEY, so grab those and head back up the
        staircase. Now, directly across from the staircase is a weak
        wall (you can tell by the cracks), so strike at it to get rid
        of it. Once it's gone, step on the red switch ahead of you
        which will lower a nearby gate. Now think of this as a 3-way
        intersection as you will be coming back here. From here head up
        the screen where the Purple Rats are coming through, so defeat
        them and the Ghost Knights as well. Continue following the path
        to find Brown Rats as well, so take them out and continue the
        path down the staircase to find more Brown and Purple Rats as
        well as a Haystack Generator. Items here are a MAGIC POTION
        (hidden in the corner), FOOD (also hidden under rocks), GOLD
        and a KEY. Get all those and then step on the three nearby red
        switch as well, which will open up some gates, one nearby you.
        Now head south through the opened gate and then up the
        staircase and go up to the 3-way intersection. Once here, head
        right and follow the pathway to the next 3-way intersection and
        go right.

        Pick up the ELECTRIC SHIELD (from the barrel), KEY and NOTE
        (talking about supports) and go through the locked gate. In
        here are Ghost Knights and a Golem Guard. Take all those out
        and in the wall is INVINCIBILTY, so make sure you get that.
        Also here is a red switch which you need to step on, lowering
        the nearby wall. Continue along this path through there and in
        here is FOOD, KEY and a red switch, which you need to step on.
        What does all these red switches do, well it will open up new
        areas throughout this level. Now backtrack to the previous
        3-way intersection and this time head forward (or up the
        screen). In this small area is a KEY, Suit Of Armor Generator
        and a red teleporter, so step on this. Once through that,
        follow the path all the way around, collecting the MAGIC
        POTION. Past that is another red teleporter so step on that.
        Once through that, you will be bombarded with Black and White
        Ghost Knights as well as an Archer Guard and Bomber Guard, so
        take out all of these and any generators you see. Head to the
        throne you see and step on the red switch, which will lower a
        nearby wall. Also here, will be a NOTE in the far chest (which
        tells you to find a spot near the Golem Guard to raise the
        throne). After that, head down the nearby short staircase and
        take out the White Ghost Knights, Suicide Guard and Archer
        Guard. A KEY and DEATH will be here, so be ready. After that,
        head up the screen to another short staircase.

        Now, this next part might be rather confusing so pay attention
        because there are a few things you can do here. Enemies here
        will be Black and White Ghost Knights as well as Purple Rats
        and Archer Guards. Available items scattered around is a NOTE
        (telling you about a rat maze if a short wall isn't down).
        There are also 14 red switches that are scattered around. For
        starters, head around the room, destroying enemies and
        generators so that you'll have a little breathing room. Now,
        use the map you see here to
        help you get around. Each
        letter you see is the order                 -------
        that I stepped on them in. So               |  J  |
        from where you start off at,                |H   I|
        step on SWITCH A which is in                 +---+
        front of you. This will raise          ----- | G | -----
        the floor in front of you. Step        | $ | -+-+- | $ |
        on this and you will see the        ---+---+--+-+--+---+---
        Axe in front of you. Consider       | K        F       L  |
        this as the central point, in       |   ---------------   |
        which you will come back to     ----+   |           M |   +----
        many times here. Now with that, | $ |   |    -----    |   | C |
        head right from here to find    |   | D |    |AXE|    | B |   |
        SWITCH B, which you will step   | E |   |    -----    |   | $ |
        on causing the wall to lower.   ----+   |           $ |   +----
        This will reveal SWITCH C and       |   ---------------   |
        GOLD. Step on that, then head       |          A          |
        to the opposite side to see         |----+--+--   --------|
        SWITCH D. Step on that to cause     |     N   |   |       |
        a wall to lower. In here is GOLD    -----------------------
        and SWITCH E which you will step
        on. With that, head back to the
        central point, and from there you will notice GOLD on a pillar
        is now obtainable, so get that. With that, from the central
        point, head up the screen to find SWITCH F. Step on this, and
        the pillar ahead of you will lower, which you can get on. This
        is an elevator, taking you to an upper area.

        Once up there, the first red switch is just for the elevator.
        The one past that is SWITCH G, which will lower the wall ahead
        of you, revealing SWITCH H, SWITCH I and SWITCH J. Step on all
        three, then back on the elevator. From there, head left first
        and step on SWITCH K, which will lower the glass wall, so you
        can get the GOLD. Now right of the elevator, step on SWITCH L
        to get more GOLD sealed away. After that, step on SWITCH M,
        which will cause a wall to lower (we'll get to that soon). Now
        head back to the central point, and then go down the screen to
        the staircase. Before that though, head just to the left of
        there and enter this small area to find SWITCH N (which we will
        deal with that soon too) and FIRE AMULET. Now after all that
        mess, you can safely go down the staircase. Take out any White
        Ghost Knights here, and continue down the screen along the left
        wall, and follow the path you see as well (watch out for the
        rising spikes). At the end of the path, you will see a red
        teleporter which you will step on. Once through here, continue
        going right, taking out more White Ghost Knights and Bomber
        Guard.

        As you make your way around here, you will find a KEY and a
        NOTE (telling you to use the Ice Axe on the dragon). You will
        also step on a red switch, so after that, head back to where
        the switch maze was and in the central point, SPECIAL ITEM #02:
        ICE AXE will be available, so grab that! Now head back to where
        you stepped on the red switch *checks email*. Now step on the
        red teleporter, and once through here, take out the Suicide
        Guard and White Ghost Knights. Also here is 2 KEYS so get them.
        Now continue onwards and you will find a locked gate and
        another KEY as well as a red switch. First off, go through the
        locked gate to get another KEY and turn the POISON into yummies
        and take out the Suit Of Armor Generator. Now step on the red
        switch which will cause a nearby wall to lower. Go through
        that, and get the MAGIC POTION (in the chest). Take out the
        White Ghost Knights and climb up the staircase (watch out for
        the rising spikes). Here will be a 3-way intersection, which if
        you go right you will find SECRET STAGE #02. Keep this in mind
        for later, but for now, head left and continue following the
        path, up the stairs, and soon you will be at the GOAL GATE.
        Also here is an ELECTRIC AMULET so get that and step on the
        gate, and you will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        Now head back to Castle Treasury (Stage 4) and make your way to
        the Secret Stage entrance. Stand on it, and get ready for a fun
        secret stage!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -----------------------------
     5. |Castle Secret Stage (Cast#05)|
         -----------------------------

        ITEMS: 125 Yellow Coins
        ENEMIES: None

        Okay this secret stage is a bit more difficult to get through.
        Your goal is to collect all 125 Yellow Coins in 70 seconds. If
        you have some Speed Shoes in your Inventory, then that will
        help out alot. So what's the easiest way to get through here?
        Well where you start off at, there is 7 Yellow Coins so get
        those and step on the red teleporter behind you. Now get the 2
        Yellow Coins from behind and go back to the start and step on
        the other red teleporter. From there, collect only the 6 Yellow
        Coins you see and head down the screen and step on the red
        teleporter. Once through that, collect the Yellow Coins here,
        step on the red teleporter, collect more Yellow Coins, repeat
        until you get to a larger area.

        From here, head down the screen, collecting the Yellow Coins,
        then step on the red teleporter. Collect the two here then go
        back to the previous area. If you have 30 to 35 seconds left on
        your timer, that's good. Also use your Speed Shoes if you want,
        and head up the screen collecting the remaining 60 something
        Yellow Coins. There's alot of them so it's best to go up and
        down the screen once you get to the top portion. Make your way
        right, zigzagging up and down until you make it back to the far
        right side getting the remaining Yellow Coins. If you have 15
        seconds left by this time, then you're in great shape. After
        the last Yellow Coin is collected, you will have unlocked a
        brand new character known as the Jackal!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, with the Jackal secret character unlocked,
        let's head over to the Items Shop. You should have about 1,800
        Gold (plus whatever from before). I'd say buy a few Rapid Fires
        and a couple 3-Way Shots, and maybe a couple close range items.
        Now with that, head back to the Castle Region and step on the
        final Stage Gate as we move onto a boss fight!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         --------------------------------------------
     2. |Castle Region Boss Stage - Chimera (Cast#06)|
         --------------------------------------------

        ITEMS: Food, Speed Shoes
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Scimitar (Found in Mountain Cavern)

        This boss fight won't be as bad as the Dragon fight. Chimera
        has three heads, a lion, bird and serpent (I think?). They will
        all breath fire at the same time, which could be a problem, but
        avoid this by running from one side to another. If you get
        close, he will shake the ground, but it won't be that bad of an
        affect. Items include FOOD and SPEED SHOES hidden behind the
        giant rocks close to the boss. Your strategy, start in one
        corner and start attacking him. When he uses his triple fire
        blast, quickly run to the other corner and keep attacking as
        you're running. Be careful not to run along the back wall as
        you can get slowed down back there by continously running in
        the wall, which will leave you opened for an attack. Again,
        Rapid Fire/3-Way Shot combo will come in handy, as well as the
        Speed Shoes. After enough planning though, you will be able to
        defeat this boss.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the magical glass mirror piece takes
        its place in the window frame. Now head over to the Town Region
        and step on the first Stage Gate as we move onto the next
        level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

      --------------------
  D: |AREA 3 - Town Region|
      --------------------

     "High above the once peaceful town of Twinion floats a magical
     airship suspended by hot air balloons! The townsfolk were mutated
     into vicious zombies by a toxic green gas pumped out from this
     flying fortress! Plague grunts in protective masks guard this
     airship and the ancient ruined tower it's docked at. Fight your
     way through the poisoned fields and haunted cemetery; then climb
     the ruined guard tower into the sky where the airship moored. From
     there, you can find the source of this monstrous green gas and
     free the town."

         ------------------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Town Poison Field (Town#01)|
         ------------------------------------

        ITEMS: 600 Gold, Halo, 19 Keys, 3 Magic Potions, 7 Foods,
               Invisibilty, 3 Notes, Obelisk #06, Speed Shoes, Death,
               3-Way Shot, Secret Stage #03
        ENEMIES: Armed Zombies, Archer Zombies, Leeches,
                 Suicide Zombies, Large Skeletons, Bomber Zombie

        You are now in the Town Poison Field. Before I get into the
        walkthrough for this stage, I want to let you know that this is
        a rather large level (layout wise), with many places that are
        optional to go through and has no bearing on completing this
        stage. Because of how wide spread it is, I will only describe
        how to get to the Obelisk, Secret Stage entrance and Goal Gate.
        Want to explore more, you're on your own ^_^. So with that, at
        the starting point, two lines of Armed Zombies will come out.
        You want to follow the line coming from the right and as you
        do, take out the Tombstone Generator and behind that is a hut
        which you need to strike at. Doing so will reveal a red switch
        which you should step on, which will lower the nearby closed
        gate. Now head through that and walk along the long tree branch
        path, taking out the Archer Zombie along the way. At the end of
        the path, go through the locked gate and once through it, you
        will be in an very large area. This area is closed off all
        around, so you can explore all you want without getting
        sidetracked. Items include 2 KEYS, 3 FOODS, GOLD, and enemies
        are Armed Zombies, Large Skeletons, Suicide Zombies and
        Leeches. Enemies here will overwhelm you so, so use whatever
        you have to get around them.

        So with that, from the gate, head to the Tombstone Generator
        ahead of you, and from there, go up and right to find a small
        wooden wall. Make your way to the otherside of the wooden wall
        (probably go along the south wall), and once you do, head over
        the rising spikes and continue going up the screen, following
        along the line of Large Skeletons to the generator. On the
        right will be OBELISK #06, so make sure you touch that. Now
        after that, make your way back to the previous red switch.
        Simply go down the screen all the way to the ledge, then head
        left along the ledge to the opened gate, follow the path and
        you will be at the red switch. Once at the red switch, head
        left of that all the way, taking out the Tombstone Generator
        and you will come to a wall/fence. At the fence, go right
        alongside the wall all the way to find FOOD and an Archer
        Zombie. After that, head the opposide direction, alongside the
        wall still (taking out the Bomber Zombie), all the way to the
        end. Once at the end, Leeches and an Archer Zombie is here, as
        well as a MAGIC POTION (in the chest) and KEY (in the barrel).

        You should also see a locked gate, which you need to go
        through. Once through here, a Suicide Troll and Armed Zombies
        will come out, so take them out and follow the path alongside
        the wall until you reach the corner. At the corner (watch out
        for the rising spikes), you should see a nearby barrel which
        has a KEY in it. Leeches will come out so take that out. Now at
        the corner, head down the screen alongside the wall, pretty
        much ignoring all the enemies that come at you. Soon you will
        come to a barrel with a NOTE in it (talking about the murky
        waters). Next to that is a locked gate, which you can go
        through. Now, everything else in this large area is completely
        up to you, so explore all you want, but I'm bypassing all of
        that. So with that, head through the locked gate, and head over
        the bridge, and take out the Archer Zombie. Also you should
        notice along the left wall that there is something under it. Go
        over and strike at it, to reveal a red switch. Step on it and
        an elevator will rise up. Get on that and you will be taken to
        a lower area, where there is two more red switches. Step on the
        second one (to lower a closed gate) and get the HALO from the
        chest and get back on the elevator. On the main area, head down
        the bridge and through the opened gate. Enemies are Armed
        Zombies and Leeches, so be careful.

        From the gate, go directly ahead of you to find FOOD and MAGIC
        POTION (both in chests). To the left of that is a Bomber Troll,
        so take that you and continue going up the screen to the wall.
        Enemies will overwhelm you, so be careful. You should find a
        KEY along the way so grab that and once you get to the wall,
        head left past the rising spikes and go up the hill. While
        going along this path, head through the locked gate, and at the
        otherside you should be in another large area. Once here, head
        down the screen and you should be at what looks like a ramp.
        Get onto and follow the short ramp to find a 3-WAY SHOT in the
        chest and a red switch, which you need to step on. Now head off
        the ramp and head directly left to the ledge. From there, head
        up the screen, alongside the ledge, and you will soon see a
        KEY, which you need to get. Also inside the locked gate you see
        is a KEY, GOLD and Leeches, so ignore that. Anyways continue
        going alongside the ledge and after a long walk, you will
        eventually find the GOAL GATE. Before entering that though,
        head up the screen from there alongside the wall. Once you get
        to the end you will see a pathway going up the hill. If you
        follow that pathway all the way to the end, taking out Armed
        Zombies, you will have found SECRET STAGE #03, so keep this in
        mind. Anyways, head back to the GOAL GATE and step on it and
        you will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Town Region and step on the
        next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -----------------------------------------
     2. |Level 2: Town Haunted Cementary (Town#02)|
         -----------------------------------------

        ITEMS: Time Stop, Phoenix Familiar, 3 Deaths, 2 3-Way Shots,
               3 Notes, Food, Runestone #07, Obelisk #07, 300 Gold,
               3 Magic Potions, Invincibility, Poison, 4 Keys,
               Levitation
        ENEMIES: Armed Zombies, Suicide Zombie, Bomber Zombie, Leeches

        You are now in the Town Haunted Cementery, which is rather
        straightforward with very minumial backtracking (gotta love
        that wolf howling). At the starting point, head over to the
        left corner to find a KEY and take out the Armed Zombies and
        their generator. After that, head up to find a red switch,
        which you will step on and go through the opened gate. Lots of
        enemies will greet you in this area, including more Armed
        Zombies, Suicide Zombie, Bomber Zombie and Leeches. Take out
        whatever you can and in this area, and from the gate, head
        forward to find FOOD (in the chest). After that, head behidn
        the grave to the right to find a red switch which will cause a
        MAGIC POTION to appear out of the grave. From there, hit the
        large treestump southeast of there to reveal another red
        switch, which will cause a 3-WAY SHOT to rise up on a coffin.
        From the red switch, head directly up the screen to find
        another treestump, which has nothing (HA, MADE YOU LOOK!)
        Anyways, from there, you should see a KEY behind a grave, so
        get that, and from there, keep going left to find a red switch.
        Step on that, to cause a closed door to open, then go left a
        bit more and take out the next treestump to reveal another red
        switch. Step on that and GOLD will rise up.

        After that, left a bit more and you will notice a new generator
        that can not be destroyed, which is an Unbreakable Generator.
        From there, head up the screen to the corner and go right until
        you see DEATH (se a Magic Potion) and behind that is a short
        staircase. Climb up it and find a MAGIC POTION, and after that,
        simply follow the pathway all the way to the end, avoiding
        rising spikes and taking out a pair of Bomber Zombies. At the
        end of the path, get the INVINCIBILTY from the barrel and take
        out the Suicide Zombie as it comes to you. Armed Zombies and an
        Archer Zombie is here, so take them all out. Now head over to a
        nearby treestump (from the pathway) to reveal a red switch,
        which you will step on, cause LEVITATION (in a chest) to rise.
        Go to that, and nearby is another red switch, which you will
        step on, which will cause a closed door to open. From there,
        head all the way right to find a mausoleum, and near there is
        FOOD (in a barrel). At the mausoleum, strike at the door to
        reveal a switch. Step on that, and then head left to find a
        MAGIC POTION. Now get that, and head left all the way to the
        otherside where the newly opened door is. Large Skeletons will
        come out, so dispose of them and their generator. Also a red
        switch is here, so step on that too. Then head back a bit to
        find another red switch. Step on that then a barrel will rise
        up with GOLD in it.

        Now head back on the pathway and follow it, taking out Armed
        Zombies. Soon you should be at a barrel and a wall ahead of
        you. This is a 3-way intersection, so make note of that. In the
        left barrel is DEATH and a red switch. Step on that, then head
        right of the 3-way intersection to find a KEY (in the barrel).
        Get that and continue up the hill a bit and through the newly
        opened gate. Up in this small area, Leeches, Armed Zombies and
        a Bomber Zombie will be here. Also here is a NOTE (giving a
        hint on where the Runestone is). After that, work your way
        around to find a red switch under an red barrel. After stepping
        on that, head back down to the 3-way intersection and head up
        the screen, taking out more Armed Zombies and Large Skeletons.
        Go to the first tomb on the right and strike at it, then step
        on the red switch and use a Magic Potion as DEATH is in here.
        Now back to the 3-way intersection and up the hill to notice
        the middle pillar has lowered. On it, you will see a TIME STOP
        and a red switch. Step on that, then back down the pathway of
        tombs. Head to the first one of the left and go through it to
        get RUNESTONE #07. Now head up the screen, taking out more
        enemies. In this next area, you will see a fountain ahead of
        you, which you can walk in to collect a PHOENIX FAMILIAR, but
        you probably won't need it since you have yours already. So
        with that, make your way to the leftside of the fountain to
        find a barrel with a NOTE inside (telling you that you are near
        another Obelisk).

        After that, follow the pathway behind it, taking out Armed
        Zombies and Leeches as you do and avoid rising spikes. Once you
        make it to the end, head left and follow the path all the way
        to the otherside. No worries as there is no enemies in this
        area. Once at the otherside you should see a mausoleum, which
        you need to strike at the door. Watch out for the rising spikes
        and grab the KEY. Now just behind the mausoleum is OBELISK #07,
        so make sure you touch that. Now from the Obelisk, head right
        to the fence and get to the otherside of that. Follow the path
        past the rising spikes and find a treestump, which you need to
        strike at to find a KEY. Now from there, continue going right,
        past all the fences and soon you will be faced with Armed
        Zombies and Leeches. Around here you should find a NOTE in a
        barrel (which tells you to corss the exit you must cross a
        bridge). From that point, head to a nearby wooden bridge (along
        the south fence) and cross over it. Once you do, go through the
        locked gate and in here you will find GOLD and a 3-WAY SHOT
        (both in chests) and a red switch, which you need to step on.
        Now, cross back over the bridge, and once you do, head right
        and follow the line of Armed Zombies and past that is a newly
        opened gate which is behind the Golem Zombie. Take out the big
        guy, and go through the gate and follow the pathway, avoiding
        rising spikes and taking out Armed Zombies (and their
        generators) and the Bomber Zombie and Archer Zombies.
        Eventually you will make it to the GOAL gate, which when you
        step on it, will complete this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the wizard uses the magic of the
        Obelisks to lower the barrier leading to the next region and
        the Runestone take its place in the center of the tower. Now
        head back to the Town Region and step on the next Stage Gate as
        we move onto the next level.

     3. |Level 3: Town Venomous Spire (Town#03)|
         --------------------------------------

        ITEMS: Time Stop, 3 Magic Potions, Runestone #08, 2 Deaths,
               5 Notes, 15 Keys, Fire Amulet, Rapid Fire, Poison, Food,
               2 Speed Shoes, 300 Gold, Special Item #03: Scroll
        ENEMIES: Zombie Villagers, Bomber Zombies, Archer Zombies,
                 Leeches, Golem Zombie, Suicide Zombies

        You are now in the Town Venomous Spire, which has a little
        backtracking, and some optional areas. So with that, at the
        starting point, Leeches and Zombie Villagers (with a KEY behind
        that) will greet you. Also here, a KEY to the right, a KEY
        ahead of you (in a barrel) and a NOTE (talking about how to get
        into the old storage room). Get the goodies and head to the
        locked gate near the Note and go through it. In here you will
        be bombarded with Leeches, Archer Zombies, Zombie Villagers,
        Suicide Zombies, Bomber Zombies, the whole lot of them. Take
        them all out, and collect the 2 KEYS, GOLD and a MAGIC POTION
        (in a barrel) tucked away in this area. After that, head over
        to the back upper corner to find a ramp going up. Follow up
        this pathway all the way and you will be at a 3-way
        intersection. There will be Zombie Villagers here so be
        careful. Now at this point, if you went up the ramp further,
        you would see a shut gate, but there's only a few items there,
        so going there would be pointless (however the red switch to
        open the gate is hidden in a door around the outer wall at the
        start). Anyways, head onto the wooden pathway and follow that
        all the way, taking out the Bomber Zombie and Zombie Villagers
        (and their generator) and continue onwards past that. Keep
        going, taking out the Leeches that come to you, and you will be
        at a 3-way intersection. At this point, simply head left (or
        down the screen) and take out the Bomber Zombie and get
        the INVISIBILITY. After that, walk your way down the spiral
        ramp (I love spiral staircases and slides ^_^) and at the
        bottom, Leeches and Zombie Villagers will start coming out in
        swarms.

        At the bottom, head over to the Doorway Generator and destroy
        it, then keep going past that to find another Doorway Generator
        and a red switch. Step on that, then head back to the ramp.
        Items scattered around would be a 2 KEYS (one close and one
        tucked away), POISON in the chest and a NOTE in a barrel
        (saying how a nearby gate must be opened elsewheres). Archer
        Zombies and Bomber Zombies are here too. There is also another
        closed gate, but again it has no relevence in completing this
        stage. So with that, at the ramps, head up the straight ramp
        (the one closest to the red switch) and at the top you will be
        at another 3-way intersection. From this one, go left to get a
        MAGIC POTION and TIME STOP and a red switch which you must step
        on that. After that, head down the previous ramp and once at
        the bottom, head right and continue going this way through a
        newly opened gate (watch out for rising spikes). Once through
        here, get the KEY and GOLD in the back corner then come down
        the screen to find a Golem Zombie and a MAGIC POTION. Take that
        out, and continue following this wide pathway around the
        corner. Collect the 2 KEYS and take out the Doorway Generator
        and any Zombie Villagers that came out, and continue up the
        screen, taking out the Archer Zombie. Past that it will appear
        you are at a dead end, but hope is not lost! Strike at the
        wooden door ahead of you to find a RAPID FIRE, DEATH and a red
        switch. Step on the switch then backtrack to the straight ramp.

        Climb back up it to the 3-way intersection then go right taking
        out the Leeches Zombie Villagers and their generators. After
        that, hang a left and follow that pathway, taking out the
        Archer Zombie and getting the NOTE (telling you that stone is
        covering a switch). Continue along this path and you will be in
        another large area. Upon entering here, an Archer Zombie is
        ahead of you, and DEATH is in the chest behind it. Zombie
        Villagers are also here so be ready. From the ramp, head right
        to find Leeches and a Bomber Zombie on the otherside of a wall.
        Also here, there is GOLD in the chest and a NOTE in the barrel
        (which tells you that you must step on three switches to get
        the Runestone). So with that, head back to the frontside of the
        wall and go right from it and follow the line of Zombie
        Villagers, to find a red switch (step on this). Now head back
        to the previous short wall and climb up the ramp near it. At
        the top, you should see a red switch right away, so step on
        that as well as getting the KEY (in the barrel). Now back down
        the ramp you go, and you will see a red switch sitting on the
        large water drain gate, so step on that. Now climb back up the
        ramp and head right (watch out for the rising spikes) through a
        newly opened gate. Once through it, Zombie Villagers and an
        Archer Zombie will be here. Also here, get the KEY and step on
        the red switch, then after that, head back down the ramp. Once
        down it, head down the screen where you found the red switch by
        the Doorway Generator and you will then see RUNESTONE #08 is
        available for pick up.

        Get that, then head back up the ramp (enough with the back and
        forth stuff already!) and this time, follow the path through
        the locked gates (why there is two here, I dunno) and continue
        along the path, taking out Leeches and the Suicide Zombie. Soon
        you will come to a Doorway Generator, so take it out and strike
        at the wall to the right of it to reveal a red switch. Step on
        that, and continue following the long spiraling path upwards,
        taking out Zombie Villagers and their generators. This is a
        long path, so just stick it out. Along the way you will hear a
        Suicide Zombie, then see a chest which has SPEED SHOES in it
        (Leeches are here on top of Zombie Villagers). After that,
        continue up the long pathway to the top where more of the same
        will come out. Once you made it to the top, roam around here to
        find 2 KEYS, SPEED SHOES and a NOTE (which talks about the
        Scroll) and 2 red switches (one visible and one under a rock
        pillar) so step on them. After that, head back down the ramp
        until you see a wooden platform that rose up. Once there, step
        on the red switch which will cause the wall across from you to
        lower. In here is a Rotting Corpse Generator, so take that out
        and strike at the wall ahead of you. Nothing in there, well
        let's fix that. In the corner is a red switch under a rock
        pile. Step on that and SPECIAL ITEM #04: SCROLL will rise up,
        so get that. Now head back up the long pathway back to the top.
        Once at the top, make your way around to find the way into the
        GOAL GATE and step onto it, which will complete this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Town Region and step
        on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         --------------------------------------
     4. |Level 4: Town Toxic Air Ship (Town#04)|
         --------------------------------------

        ITEMS: 2 Foods, Phoenix Familiar, 4 Notes, Acid Breath,
               2 Deaths, 100 Gold, 3-Way Shot, 11 Keys, Runestone #09
        ENEMIES: Zombie Villagers, Bomber Zombie, Suicide Zombie,
                 Leeches, Archer Zombie

        You are now on the Town Toxic Air Ship, which is very
        straightforward. At the starting point, follow the path ahead
        of you, taking out the Zombie Villagers as they come. Here, get
        the FOOD (in the barrel) and ignore the chest (it's empty), and
        take a look at the crates. Notice the ones that are colored
        differently, well strike at those to remove them, and go
        through there, taking out the Zombie Villagers and Leeches. Go
        up the nearby ramp and step on the red switch you see, then
        continue along the pathway, taking out Leeches and Bomber
        Zombie. In this next area, a KEY is in the barrel, and a red
        switch is under a netted crate. Step on that and a nearby gate
        will open up for you. After that, continue on the path through
        the opened gate (taking out the Zombie Villagers) and in the
        corner, strike at the crate to find a KEY. After that, go
        throught he locked gate and take out the Suicide Zombie and
        Zombie Villagers as well as the generator and collect the KEY.
        Climb up the path and in this next area is more Zombie
        Villagers and a generator, so take that out and continue up the
        pathway. Next area, a KEY and DEATH is here and more Zombie
        Villagers. After that, go through the two locked gates, and
        collect the FOOD up ahead (in the chest) and defeat Zombie
        Villagers and step on the red switch. From there, climb up the
        cargo net and you will be on a balloon (I think?).

        Anyways up here is a NOTE (telling you that there's a Runestone
        on board), then after that, head down the other cargo net and
        follow the path all the way downwards to a hanging crate. This
        is an elevator which will lower you down to a lower area. Get
        ready because Zombie Villagers and Leeches are here, so dispose
        of them and their generators. Items here, well there is an
        ACID BREATH under the crate in the middle, so grab that and
        head to the otherside and down the pathway. You will now be
        aboard the ship, woo and hoo. Anyways, follow the path onto the
        ship, taking out the Zombie Villagers, Leeches and Archer
        Zombie (because it's so damn annoying) and continue following
        the pathway until you reach a 3-way intersection with stairs.
        Go up the stairs and follow the narrow pathway up the cargo
        net, taking out Zombie Villagers and Suicide Zombies. At the
        top will be a red switch, which you need to step on. After
        that, continue along the cargo net, ignoring the PHOENIX
        FAMILAR (which would be pointless to get anyways) and at the
        end is a Bomber Zombie, KEY and a red switch. Take care of what
        needs to be done, then head back to the 3-way intersection. Now
        head down the staircase, getting the NOTE first (telling you
        about the cargo nets being used as ropeways). Down here, is
        more Zombie Villagers, so take them out and their generators,
        and get the GOLD in the corner. After that, continue along the
        pathway and go down the ramp all the way to the bottom. This is
        a 3-way intersection, so keep it in mind. Down here is a NOTE
        (telling you something about crow's nest *shrugs*) and some
        more of the same enemies.

        Now head up the cargo net pathway and follow that path, taking
        out the crate in your way and stepping on the red switch.
        Continue on afterwards, taking out the Zombie Villagers and
        their generators, then at the end of the path, strike at the
        crate and collect RUNESTONE #09. After getting that, head back
        down to the 3-way intersection and then go up the right
        pathway, taking out more Zombie Villagers and Doorway
        Generators. From there, head right and collect the KEY at the
        far end, then head over to the rightside of the boat. Over
        here, more Zombie Villagers, so take them out, then climb up
        the pathway going up, taking out the Leeches and Zombie
        Villagers. There is a red switch here, which you need to step
        on, causing the balloon to rise carrying up a platform that has
        GOLD, KEY and DEATH (in the chest) on it. After taking care of
        that, head down the other pathway back onto the ship. Take out
        the enemies that you will face down here, and then strike at
        the lone crate, which will reveal a secret spot which houses a
        3-WAY SHOT. Now after that, continue onwards until you reach a
        staircase (where Zombie Villagers will be coming down). Next to
        it is a crate which you need to strike at, revealing a red
        switch and a KEY. Now, climb up the staircase and take out the
        Zombie Villagers and continue onwards past the rising spikes
        and onto the ramp pathway going up.

        At the top, more Zombie Villagers, so take them out and get the
        KEY in the back, and then continue on along the pathway,
        through an opened gate. In this next area, you will see crates
        all over. First off, head right and strike at that crate to
        reveal a red switch, KEY and empty chest. Step on the switch
        then strike at the crates blocking your path and go through
        there. Once through that, continue up the pathway, taking out
        the Zombie Villagers as they come to you, and then go through
        the locked gate. Past that is a KEY in the barrel and a red
        switch under it, so deal with that, then climb up the long
        steep pathway going way up where you will face a Golem Zombie.
        Take that out then head down the next pathway, taking out
        Zombie Villagers and their generator. After that, simply
        continue onwards with the pathway and you will hear a Suicide
        Zombie, so take that out. This next spot may look like you
        can't get around it, but don't worry you can, so do so and keep
        going onwards, avoiding the rising spikes. Past that, Leeches
        will come out, so take them out and you will see the GOAL GATE.
        Take out the Bomber Zombie and get the NOTE in the chest (which
        talks about a Javelin in the Ice Region), and step on the goal,
        which will complete this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to Town Poisoned Fields
        (Stage 1) and make your way to the Secret Stage entrance. Stand
        on it, and get ready for a fun secret stage!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ---------------------------
     5. |Town Secret Stage (Town#05)|
         ---------------------------

        ITEMS: 93 Silver Coins
        ENEMIES: None

        For this secret stage, it's actually a really tough one simply
        because of the layout. You will probably need the Speed Shoes
        for this one. So from the starting point, head up the screen to
        collect the Silver Coins ahead of you only. Now back to the
        start, head left and start making your way upwards collect
        these Silver Coins in this area. Head up the screen to the
        3-way type intersection, then go right, collecting all of the
        Silver Coins here (including a few you passed up). Now while
        along the rightside, head up towards the back wall and starting
        at the right side collect the Silver Coins while you're heading
        left along the backside. Once you made it to the back left
        corner, start coming down the screen. If you made it here with
        20 to 25 seconds, you're in good shape. Now collect the next
        batch of Silver Coins that were left untouched from before. You
        will notice two paths ahead of you, so go down the screen down
        the right path, collect those coins, then get around the wall
        collecting the final coins. After the last Silver Coin is
        collected, you will have unlocked a brand new character known
        as the Falconress!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, with the Falconress secret character
        unlocked, let's head over to the Items Shop. You should have
        about 1,300 Gold (plus what you have previously). I'd say buy
        some close range items like Electric Breath and Fire Breath, as
        well as Rapid Fire. Now with that, head back to the Town Region
        and step on the final Stage Gate as we move onto a boss fight!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -----------------------------------------------
     6. |Town Region Boss Stage - Plague Fiend (Town#06)|
         -----------------------------------------------

        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Javelin (Found in Ice Fissure)

        This one is rather simple to defeat. What you see is a giant
        slime monster with horns. He will just wobble around in his
        slime pit. His attacks include shooting poisonous gas blasts at
        you, as well as a slow moving stream of poisonous gas. Also he
        will breed out small little slime leeches which is used as a
        distraction. These buggers won't really hurt you, so no worries
        there. Infact the bosses gas will take them out too. Your
        strategy, start in one corner, start attacking him, and when he
        uses his attack, head over to the otherside and continue
        attacking. Now if you're feeling brave, you can get up close
        and start using a variety of items on him (Acid, Fire and
        Electric Breath is good as well as Thunder Hammer), just avoid
        the attacks. Whichever strategy you used, just know, this will
        be an extremely easy fight, so soon you should be able to
        defeat him.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the magical glass mirror piece takes
        its place in the window frame. Now head over to the Ice Region
        and step on the first Stage Gate as we move onto the next
        level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

      -------------------
  E: |AREA 4 - Ice Region|
      -------------------

     "A blood stained tundra must be crossed to get the fourth shard
     for my window. Buried deep in the ice mountain is a magical green
     meteor coveted for its explosive powers. The dwarven engineers who
     mined this meteor are now mutants under Skorne's power! Start at
     the loading docks where the ice grunts bring explosive barrels for
     transport. Use the network of steam pipes and mine cart tracks to
     get up and into the mountain's interior where the meteor lies. Its
     heat waves are melting the snow causing geysers of steam
     everywhere so avoid the steam vents!"

     A little warning for readers: From here on out, things will be a
     little different as there are different parts to each stage. After
     getting through the Goal Gate of the first part, you will then
     automatically begin the next part. Also if you decide to quit the
     stage or replay it again, you have to go through all the parts all
     over again. Another note, the layout for each stage is EXTREMELY
     massive in size, but 80% of it has nothing to do with completing
     the levels. So because of that, I will only how to describe how to
     get to the Runestones, Secret Stage entrances and Goal Gate.
     Everything else, you're completely on your own, but use my maps
     for reference.

         ---------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Ice Docks (Ice#01)|
         ---------------------------

        --- Ice Docks Part 1 ---

        ITEMS: Speed Shoes, 3-Way Shot, Rapid Fire, Electric Amulet,
               Fire Amulet, 2 Magic Potions, 2 Foods, 10 Keys
        ENEMIES: Ice Grunts, Archer Grunts, Brown Wolves, Black Wolves,
                 Suicide Grunts

        You are now in Ice Docks Part 1, the first of three parts to
        this long stage. So with that, from the starting point, head
        down the screen and collect the KEY (in the barrel). Also here,
        take out any Ice Grunts that come at you. In this area, more
        Ice Grunts are here, and there is a FIRE AMULET around here.
        From where you are, head left along the edge and keep going
        past the locked gate (which has an ELECTRIC AMULET at the end
        of the path). You should come to a path with a KEY on it, which
        is the path you need to take. Follow this long winding path,
        taking out the Archer Grunt along the way until you reach
        another big area. Brown Wolves will be here, so take them out
        and their Den Generator. From here, head left, getting the KEY
        and crossing the narrow wooden bridge. More Ice Grunts are
        waiting for you, so start taking them out and their Cave
        Generator and continue along the path (nothing is in the ice
        glacier). Head through the locked gate, and take out the Archer
        Grunt and continue onwards taking out more Ice Grunts as they
        come down the path. Soon you will hear a Suicide Grunt, so
        dispose of that, then more Ice Grunts will come out. Keep going
        a bit more, and you will be alongside a mountain. From here,
        continue following the path, taking out the Brown Wolves that
        are coming from around the corner. Dispose of them and their
        generator and continue following the path taking out more
        Archer Grunts and Ice Grunts, and soon you will come to a 3-way
        intersection, which will have Black and Brown Wolves coming at
        you.

        From the 3-way intersection, simply go left but only for a few
        feet. Notice the boulder sticking out of the wall, well strike
        at that to reveal a KEY. Get that and continue down the path,
        taking out an Archer Grunt and Black Wolves. Keep following
        this path and cross over the narrow wooden bridge to find Ice
        Grunts. Take them all out and keep going onwards to find
        another KEY (in the barrel) and eventually come to another
        3-way intersection. An Archer Grunt and Suicide Grunt will be
        here, so take them both out. From the 3-way intersection,
        simply keep going forward (but remember this spot), taking out
        another Archer Grunt and getting the KEY. Go through the locked
        gate up ahead and in this new large area, there is a KEY in the
        open and FOOD in the barrel behind it. From there, keep going
        up the screen, past the wooden bridge and down the narrow icy
        path ahead. Keep going to find Ice Grunts, so take them out,
        and just make your way to the end of this somewhat long path.
        Once at the end, FOOD is in the barrel and there is a red
        switch, which you must step on. With that, backtrack your way
        to the previous 3-way intersection I told you to remember. Once
        back there, head down the new path through the newly opened
        door, and take out the Suicide Grunt, so take that out and make
        your way up this short winding path, taking out the Ice Grunts
        and Archer Grunts. At the end of the path is a KEY and the GOAL
        GATE, so take care of that and you will have completed the
        first part of this level.

        --- Ice Docks Part 2 ---

        ITEMS: 300 Gold, 4 Notes, 10 Keys, 3 Magic Potions, 2 Foods,
               Death, Runestone #10, Phoenix Familiar
        ENEMIES: Ice Grunts, Archer Grunts, Suicide Grunts,
                 Bomber Grunts, Black Wolves, Brown Wolves, Ice Golem

        You are now in Ice Docks Part 2, the second of three parts to
        this long stage. Now here's the deal, getting to the Goal Gate
        is simple pimple. The thing is, you have to find the Runestone,
        which will take ALOT of footwork. So with that, from the
        starting point, head along the path, getting the KEY from the
        barrel and continue onwards up the screen. A Bomber Grunt is
        here, so take that out and instead of going through the locked
        gate behind it, strike at the crate next to the locked gate and
        it will be gone. This way you can walk around the locked gate
        without using a Key (I R TEH SMART). Anyways, make your way
        around the crates and behind the locked gate, and from there,
        head left and find a NOTE on the side (giving you a hint as to
        where the Goal Gate and Runestone are). Keep going left past
        that along the edge and Ice Grunts and an Archer Grunt will be
        around here (think of this as a reference point). After that,
        you should see a spiked fencing. Go up along that, taking out
        Brown Wolves and the Den Generator, and go back down the
        otherside of it and keep going down the side and then continue
        along the edge, taking out Ice Grunts. Soon you will come to a
        dock, with an Archer Grunt and Suicide Grunt. Take them out and
        walk on the dock all the way till you reach a big pile of
        crates (picking up the FOOD).

        Once there, make your way behind the big pile and strike at the
        middle crate which will reveal a red switch. Step on that, and
        in a while, you'll see what it does. Now head back, and the
        path on the side, where the Ice Grunts are coming from, well
        it's a short path which has a KEY, MAGIC POTION and GOLD on it,
        so get that if you want, then back on the dock, head up the
        screen back to the icy land. Once back here, in the nearby left
        corner is a NOTE in a barrel (telling you that the frozen docks
        hides secrets). So with that, make your way right along the
        edge and then up around the fence. See that pile of crates you
        passed up earlier, well on it is a KEY. Now from there, simply
        head right and make your way back to the locked gate near the
        starting point. Here's where things get a little crazy. From
        here, find the nearby mining track (which is very closeby), and
        from that point, head right, past the piles of crates and you
        will eventually reach a spiked fence. Ice Grunts and Brown
        Wolves are here, so be ready to fight. head up along the spiked
        fence and follow the path up and down and you will reach a
        series of ice patches. Follow along here, collecting the KEY
        and at the otherside you should come to a locked gate. Go
        through it, and take out the Archer Grunt and you will be at a
        3-way intersection. From here, head through the next locked
        gate and get the NOTE (giving you another hint about the
        Runestone).

        After that, keep going down the path to the end. See that big
        boulder ahead you, well strike at it and a red switch will be
        revealed! Now head back to the previous 3-way intersection and
        then continue going up the remaining path, taking out any enemy
        along the way. You will also come across a KEY so get that.
        Once at the otherside, head up a nearby hill which will take
        you onto a mining track. Once on that, head across the long
        track to the otherside where there is a 3-way intersection.
        From there, head right through a recently opened gate. Ice
        Grunts are here, as well as a NOTE (telling you the Runestone
        is near). With that, take out the enemies and continue up this
        pathway and you will find a mine track and some FOOD. Get the
        yummy, and walk along the mine track all the way down to the
        lower area. Items here, a PHOENIX FAMILAR (in the barrel) and
        KEY to the left, and GOLD, KEY and DEATH to the right. Enemies,
        Archer Grunts and Black Wolves, with a Bomber Grunt above. Head
        right and follow this pathway collecting the items you see and
        then up a hill through the locked gate. as you make your way up
        this hill, if you wanna take out the Bomber Grunt, go for it,
        but after that, continue going up the hill.

        As you make it to the top, Ice Grunts and an Archer Grunt will
        be here. Take all them out and head to the deck where you will
        find RUNESTONE #10. Now we can make our way to the Goal Gate
        (about flipping time). So with that, make your way back to the
        mining track and head up and across it. Once at the otherside,
        head down the path to the 3-way intersection. Continue onwards
        past that along the narrow snowy path (don't worry, you won't
        fall), do watch out for the rising steam. As you make your way
        along this path you will come to what looks like a mining
        entrance. From there, head left to find a note (telling you you
        need two keys to get to the Goal Gate). So with that, head left
        some more until you find a locked gate which you will go
        through. Brown Wolves are here, so take them out and their
        generator. There's GOLD in the corner, so grab that. Now just
        keep following the path and you will come across another locked
        gate. Go through that, and take out the Suicide Grunt and Ice
        Grunts coming at you. Ignore or use a Magic Potion to take out
        the Bomber Grunts if you like and just go forward into the GOAL
        GATE. And with that, you have completed the second part of this
        level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        --- Ice Docks Part 3 ---

        ITEMS: Food, Key, Speed Shoes, 3-Way Shot, 1,500 Gold,
               Electric Shield, Invisibility
        ENEMIES: Ice Grunts, Archer Grunts, Suicide Grunts, Bomber
                 Grunts, Black Wolves, Brown Wolves, Ice Golem

        You are now in Ice Docks Part 3, the third of three parts to
        this long stage. Now in this part, there are actually two
        different Goal Gates, which I guess both end this stage the
        same way, so why there is two, who knows. Nonetheless, I will
        take you to the Goal Gate that is the closest. So with that,
        from the start, you will notice that you're on the otherside of
        the fence from the previous part. So with that, from the
        starting point, head up the screen following the path taking
        out Ice Grunts, followed by a Suicide Grunt. Head around the
        corner to find more Ice Grunts, so start taking them out and
        their generator. After that, get the KEY (in the barrel) and
        continue up the pathway all the until you see a locked gate. Go
        through the locked gate, but watch out for the rising steam and
        collect the INVISIBILTY (in the chest) and take out the Brown
        and Black Wolves as well as the Ice Grunts, that will appear.
        After that, head right to find GOLD (in the chest), and then a
        giant ice glacier. You can destroy that if you want, which will
        reveal a red switch, and stepping on that will cause a mining
        track to rise up, leading to a KEY and that's it. More
        importantly though, from where you are, head down the screen
        following the mining tracks in the opposite direction.

        Keep going, taking out the Archer Grunt along the way and you
        will come to where the mining track splits in two. Here will
        also be some Ice Grunts so dispose of them as well, and
        continue following the straightline track. Another Archer Grunt
        will be in your way and then further up will be Ice Grunts and
        a KEY. A red switch is also here, which you need to step on.
        Now head back to the split off, and this time go down the curve
        line track. Follow this track (hope you're not afraid of
        heights!)through a newly opened door guarded by an Archer
        Grunt. After that, keep going forward, taking out the Bomber
        Grunt. Now down the hill to a very large area. You will be
        greeted by Archer Grunts, Ice Grunts and Brown Wolves, so take
        them all out. Now it's probably easier to stay on the mining
        track so with that, follow it forward until you reach a split
        off. KEEP THIS SPOT IN MIND! With that, follow the curve line
        track and you will find a red switch (step on that), as well as
        an Archer Grunt and Bomber Grunt, so take these out (use a
        Magic Potion). Now head back up to where the split off was and
        head left up the straightline track, taking out Ice Grunts. If
        you keep following the mining track forward, you will come
        across a GOAL GATE. Now, if you want, step on that, and you
        will have completed the third part of this level. If you do do
        this, skip ahead to the next stage.

        However, there is still more here, which will result in going
        through another GOAL GATE. So read on if you're curious about
        that, it will be brief though. First off, right before this
        Goal Gate, on the right side, there is FOOD and a shack which
        you can strike on step on the red switch in the shack. Now
        backtrack to the split off with the mining tracks, head down
        the curveline one until you reach the rows of crates. The one
        in the back corner can be striked at it, revealing a ramp.
        Climb up that, and head to the otherside and follow the dock to
        the end. Here, Ice Grunts and Bomber Grunts will play. Also in
        the corner is a red switch under a crate, which when you step
        on it, will lower the middle crate with the ELECTRIC SHIELD on
        it. Near that, is a pathway so take that and take out any
        enemies in your way. In this next large area, there are Ice
        Grunts all over, and a red switch at the far rightside (under
        a crate) which will lower a crate with SPEED SHOES on it. Next
        there is a ship nearby there, so step on that red switch to
        lower and elevator. Climb up on it and if you go left, there
        will be Ice Grunts. After that, up the stairs is Archer Grunts
        and 2 GOLDS. After that, head down the right side of the ship,
        taking out Ice Grunts, a Bomber Grunt and a Suicide Grunt and
        get the KEY in the barrel. Continue on the path ahead and find
        GOLD at the end where there's a small graveyard (who is
        Kevin?!). Continue on this path, taking out enemies, and you
        will find GOLD and a 3-WAY SHOT. After that, follow the path
        down the hill to find 2 GREEN GOLDS (which you'll get 500 Gold
        each), FOOD and a KEY as well as the other GOAL GATE. Step on
        that, and you'll have completed the third part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Ice Region and step
        on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         --------------------------
     2. |Level 2: Ice Camp (Ice#02)|
         --------------------------

        --- Ice Camp Part 1 ---

        ITEMS: Electric Amulet, Acid Amulet, Phoenix Familiar, 4 Foods,
               Magic Potion, 11 Keys, 500 Gold, Rapid Fire, Death, Note
        ENEMIES: Large Ice Worms, Small Ice Worms, Suicide Grunts,
                 Black Wolves, Brown Wolves, Archer Grunt

        You are now in Ice Camp Part 1, the first of two parts to
        this long stage. Incidentally, getting to the Goal Gate of this
        stage won't take very long to do. So here we go, at the
        starting point, you will be instantly greeted by Large Ice
        Worms, so take them out and the nearby Burrow Generator. Behind
        you in a crate is GOLD, and forward a bit is a KEY (under an
        ice boulder). With that, follow the path all the way to the
        end, and a ice glacier will come down blocking your pathway
        (which sucks). Near there is a crate, which you need to strike
        at, to reveal a red switch. Step on that then backtrack a bit
        to the corner, showing that a red switch has been revealed.
        Head over to that one and step on it, then backtrack to the
        starting point, to find another red switch. Step on that one,
        and then head forward to find an ice patch that rose up. Step
        on it and it will carry you down to a small lower area. Down
        here, head right, taking out the Archer Grunt, then continue
        onwards. There will be a KEY on one vent thingys. After getting
        that, continue onwards taking out another Archer Grunt to find
        another ice patch, which will take you up to the main level.

        Once there, head off the rightside, and take out the Large Ice
        Worms and Brown Wolves that'll come out as well as their
        generators. In the nearby corner is a KEY so grab that, and
        then head right and continue following the path (finding
        another KEY in the barrel). Also you will hear a Suicide Grunt,
        so take that out as well. Now where the last Key was is a
        fence. Get around that fence and go through the locked gate and
        an Ice Golem will rise up and attack you. Take that out, and
        get the ACID AMULET (in the chest) and strike at the back fence
        for FOOD. Also there is a red switch here (guarded by rising
        steams), which you must step on. Now for some fun, go back
        through the opened gate, and down and right, and just keep
        zigzagging down the path back and forth until you get through
        this, taking out all enemies in your way. Along the way through
        here will be a PHOENIX FAMILIAR and KEY (in the barrel). Also
        go through the locked gate, which has FOOD and a red switch in
        it. Finally there will be a NOTE in the barrel (saying two
        switches must be pressed to continue on). After that, you
        should be through the zigzagging.

        Now just follow the path down the screen, and find a KEY in the
        barrel. Get that, and continue onwards, taking out Small Ice
        Worms and Brown Wolves. Also here is a red switch which you
        must step on, so do so and tred a little more forward to find
        GOLD, a KEY and DEATH in the barrels. Here's the interesting
        twist to this level. There are two paths to take, the left one
        behind the barrels and the one further to the right. Take the
        right path and you will have found the GOAL GATE. Take the left
        one, and you will embark down a long twisty-turning pathway
        that will basically lead back to just before where you are now.
        Items found throughout this path is 3 GOLDS, 5 KEYS, 2 FOODS,
        MAGIC POTION, RAPID FIRE and an ELETRIC AMULET, as well as many
        many enemies. Nothing else is of value down this path, so take
        it if you want, it is rather straightforward. Other than that,
        simply head down the path to the Goal Gate, step on it and you
        will have completed the first part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        --- Ice Camp Part 2 ---

        ITEMS: 3 Magic Potions, 1,700 Gold, 9 Keys, Food, 3 Notes,
               Runestone #11, 2 Rapid Fires, Fire Amulet, 3-Way Shot,
               Electric Shield, Invisibility, Secret Stage #04
        ENEMIES: Large Ice Worms, Small Ice Worms, Suicide Grunt,
                 Black Wolves, Brown Wolves, Archer Grunt, Bomber Grunt

        You are now in Ice Camp Part 2, the first of two parts to
        this long stage. This one however is much longer than the first
        part so be ready. Upon starting this level, you will be greeted
        by Archer Grunts and Ice Worms, so take them out right away.
        Now head right to find a FIRE AMULET, then keep going up the
        screen from there following the path. You will notice a small
        bridge guarded by rising steams, keep this in mind as you will
        be coming back here much later. Continue up the path some more
        taking out Small Ice Worms. Once you come to another wooden
        bridge, cross over it taking out Black Wolves. At the
        otherside, head up the screen and continue following it and you
        will reach three rising steams. Past that GOLD (in each chest)
        so get them and step on the red switch that you see. Now
        backtrack to the wooden bridge, and once there, head right from
        it to the otherside and then up through a newly opened gate.
        You'll hear a Suicide Grunt so take that out and the Archer
        Grunt and Small Ice Worms as well. Continue up this path and
        you will find a KEY and a crate. Taking the crate out will
        reveal a red switch which will make the 3-WAY SHOT (you saw a
        10 seconds ago) available. So get that if you want and continue
        up the pathway. Black Wolves will also come out, so take them
        out and their Den Generator. From there, climb up the hill then
        cointinue going down the otherside, taking out more Small Ice
        Worms. Go past the mining tracks and at the end of the path is
        GOLD (in the chest) and a red switch which you must step on.
        There are also Large Ice Worms here, so be careful.

        Now head back onto the mining track, and take the curve line
        track (because the other one will be a dead end). Follow the
        curve line track across the long bridge and through the newly
        opened gate where you will need to take out Bomber Grunts and
        Large Ice Worms. After that, continue down another long mining
        track bridge and at the otherside is GOLD (in the barrels) and
        Small Ice Worms, so deal with that and a Bomber Grunt, so stand
        from a distance and shoot upwards to take that out. Continue up
        the mining track across the bridge, and at the otherside of
        this one, you will find Small Ice Worms as well as FOOD and a
        KEY (both in barrels). Now head over to the red switch, step on
        it to make an ice patch rise up, which you will step on, taking
        you to the lower area. Small Ice Worms and Brown Wolves will
        come out. Down here, to the right in the barrels is a KEY and
        NOTE (telling you where the Secret Stage is) as well as an
        Archer Grunt. North of that you'll find a Bomber Grunt and KEY
        (in the barrel). Back at the lift, head left of that to find a
        MAGIC POTION and a few steps from that is a closed gate. After
        that, head under the bridge and continue going up the screen,
        taking out Large Ice Worms and finding an empty chest. Continue
        going up the screen from there and Brown Wolves will come out.
        Take them out and their generator and keep going to the end of
        the pathway and you will find 2 GOLDS and a red switch, which
        you need to step on. Now make your way back to the closed gate
        you passed up earlier and go through it (why there is two here,
        who knows). Follow this path, taking out Black Wolves and their
        Den Generator.

        After that, continue up the path, taking out Small Ice Worms
        (and the Burrow Generator) and getting the KEY (in the barrel).
        Continue the path to find another KEY in the corner, then on
        the otherside of the river is GOLD in the chest. From there
        head down the screen, taking out Small Ice Worms and Black
        Wolves and keep going down to the ledge. Follow the ledge up
        the screen to find a red switch (which by stepping on it,
        lowers a nearby gate) and RAPID FIRE (in the chest). From
        there, continue following the small wall to a small ramp, which
        you need to get on. Small Ice Worms will come through the newly
        opened gate so dispose of them and in this next large area,
        head forward past the ramp to get GOLD (in the chest) and a
        Bomber Grunt. Further on is a closed gate, but you will be
        coming back here so keep this in mind. Now, up the next ramp to
        find an Archer Grunt shooting down at you. Try to avoid this,
        and at this point you are at a 3-way intersection. From here,
        head left and follow the pathway, collecting the GOLD in the
        ice pillar. Continue going down this path to find a NOTE
        (telling you to find four switches to make the Runestone
        appear). Small Ice Worms are here too, so take them out and
        step on the red switch ahead of you as well as getting the
        FOOD. Now head back to the 3-way intersection, and this time
        head right taking out Large Ice Worms and an Archer Grunt. Up
        the small ramp and onto the mining track, which makes this
        another 3-way intersection. For this one, start heading left,
        collecting the KEY along the way.

        Onto the bridge and across it to find Large Ice Worms and a red
        switch. Step on that, then head back to the 3-way intersection
        (the camera shot might get a bit jerky so don't worry). Once
        there, down the ramp and step on the now available red switch.
        From there, head left to the other previous 3-way intersection
        and go down that ramp. Once down it, head left and you will now
        be able to go through the closed door from before. Go through
        it, taking out Small Ice Worms and step on the red switch you
        see. From there, head down the screen a bit to find the rising
        steams blocking the wooden bridge from much earlier. Go across
        that and find a now available red switch to step on, then low
        and behold, RUNESTONE #11 can be grabbed! Now head back to the
        recently opened doorway, go through it and continue up to the
        to the ramp. Climb up it, go right, climb up the short ramp and
        at the 3-way intersection, head right across the short bridge.
        At otherside is a KEY (in the barrel), so get that and continue
        on the pathway. At the end you will find Small and Large Ice
        Worms. In the back right corner in a chest is a NOTE (telling
        you to use the Scroll on the Yeti). From there, head up or left
        or whatever the opposite direction is (lol) and follow the
        mining tracks up the hill, taking out Black Wolves and Small
        Ice Worms, until you reach the end. You will see a ramp which
        you need to go down, and then up the screen from that is a
        MAGIC POTION (in the barrel) and a red switch which you need to
        step on.

        Now head down the screen, taking out Brown Wolves and Small Ice
        Worms and in the barrel on the leftside is a KEY. Continue
        following the mining track to a deck, with a RAPID FIRE (in the
        barrel). Now back up a bit and go right around the enclosed
        fence and head forward. you should see a red switch guarded by
        rising steams, but ignore that for now and continue going
        forward, taking out Brown Wolves, then past another enclosed
        fence to find Large Ice Worms so take them out. Also here,
        there is a lone crate with a red switch under it. Step on that
        to and an ELECTRIC SHIELD will be available in the corner. Get
        that then head back to the rising steams. This might be tricky
        because you need to step on it, which will lower the fences,
        and two Ice Golems will start attacking you. To handle this,
        have them both chase you into the open area, then use your
        Special Attack and then continue attacking them. With them
        gone, go ahead and check out what they were guarding, which is
        an INVISIBILITY (in an ice glacier) and a red switch. Step on
        that, then head to the bottom left enclosed fence and step on
        that red switch. Now head up the ramp nearby and for this next
        part, you will be in a maze like area.

        Now while I have a map for this already posted, here is smaller
        map incase you don't feel like going back and forth between the
                                               walkthrough and map ^_^.

        X  |_____   _|        |_______   __|   and Small Ice Worms will
        XX       | |            ______| |      be here as well as a

               |_____________|    |    $|      a chest). After that, up
                   P              |XXX__|      the screen, taking out
                             START             Large Ice Worms then
                                               head all the way to the
        back wall. Once there, head right and follow the path to find a
        crate along the wall. Nothing is in that, but directly across
        from there is an opening. Go into it and head down the screen,
        getting the KEY tucked away (in the barrel). Continue down the
        screen to find a ramp which you need to go up (past there is
        GOLD in a crate). Up the ramp and follow the path, collecting
        GOLD and taking out the Archer Grunt, then follow the path
        taking out the Bomber Grunt. Now you should see the GOAL GATE,
        but ignore that for now. Instead head down the small ramp and
        keep going. Strike at the crate to reveal a red switch. Step on
        that, then follow the pathway back off of the crates. Once you
        do that, head up the screen to the back wall, then left and the
        down the screen to find the first ramp. Climb up it, then head
        over to the 3-way intersection. Go up to get GOLD, then go down
        and follow the path all the way around, taking out the Bomber
        Grunt. Near that is a crate you can strike at, which has GOLD.
        After that, continue on the pathway, taking out the Archer
        Guard and soon you will find SECRET STAGE #04. Now that you
        know where that is, make your way back to the Goal Gate and
        step on it and you will have completed the second part of this
        level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Ice Region and step
        on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         --------------------------
     3. |Level 3: Ice Mine (Ice#03)|
         --------------------------

        --- Ice Mine Part 1 ---

        ITEMS: 5 Keys, Death, 2 Notes, Speed Shoes, Magic Potion,
               2 Foods, 200 Gold, Fire Amulet, 3-Way Shot
        ENEMIES: Black Wolves, Brown Wolves, Ice Grunts, Bomber Grunts,
                 Suicide Grunts, Archer Grunts

        You are now in Ice Mine Part 1, the first of three parts to
        this long stage. Actually, overall these three levels put
        together isn't that bad. So with that, at the starting point,
        you will be greeted by Black and Brown Wolves as well as Ice
        Grunts, so take them out. Also in this area is a MAGIC POTION
        and KEY (both in barrels). After that, head up the screen
        following the mining track, taking out Ice Grunts and Cave
        Generators. If you can notice it, along the rightside is a
        chest with a NOTE inside (saying it's worth crossing a nearby
        bridge). So with that, continue up the screen taking out more
        Ice Grunts and Black Wolves. As you do, you will notice a dark
        hill on the leftside, but ignore that. Instead continue along
        the mining track and at the end is a red switch. Ignore that
        for the moment, and go through the nearby locked gate and cross
        over the bridge where a Suicide Grunt will come at you. Take
        that out and continue across the bridge to find a red switch,
        which you need to step on. After that, head back to the mining
        track and step on the nearby red switch there which will cause
        a mine cart to lower. Get on that and it will take you to the
        upper area, where you will be greeted by Ice Grunts and Brown
        Wolves. Head forward to the line of Ice Grunts, and you will
        find a KEY.

        Don't worry about the red switch encased in ice, you'll come
        back to it soon. Instead follow the line of Brown Wolves across
        the small bridge (watch out for the rising steam), and grab the
        FOOD in the corner, and then go down the nearby wooden ramp
        ahead of you. In the corner is a FIRE AMULET and KEY, as well
        as Bomber Grunts and Brown Wolves. DEATH is also roaming around
        so be ready. Now follow the path down the screen and you will
        see a steep ramp. Go down it, step on the red switch and get
        the GOLD (in the chest), then backtrack to the red switch
        encased in ice. Step on that one, then back to the steep ramp
        and continue onwards. Take out the Ice Grunts and behind the
        pillar is a NOTE (telling you to step on five red switches to
        continue on). You are now at a 3-way intersection, so from here
        head up the hill you see. Once up here, there will be a closed
        gate on the left, so keep this in mind. Brown Wolves and Black
        Wolves will come out, but you need to follow the right path
        along the line of Black Wolves. As you do, take out their Den
        Generator and continue along the wooden bridge path. An Archer
        Grunt will be here, so take it out and keep going past that.
        Ice Grunts will come out as well, so take them out and then get
        the 3-WAY SHOT (in the chest).

        After that, continue onwards, going past the rising steam and
        taking out the Black Wolves and their generator. Step on the
        red switch you see and up ahead is a KEY (in the barrel). Now
        backtrack to the 3-Way Shot to find another red switch
        appearing. Step on that and continue going back all the way to
        find the closed gate from before has now opened. Go through
        there, and take out the Archer Grunt, and continue crossing
        over the bridge and take out the Bomber Grunt. More Ice Grunts
        will come out, so take them out and strike at the giant ice
        glacier in front of you, which will reveal GOLD (in the chest).
        You will also see SPEED SHOES in the back corner, so get those,
        and then step on the red switch. This will lower the crates
        ahead of you, so step on those and it will take you to an upper
        level. There is Ice Grunts up here, so dispose of them and
        their generator. Step on the other red switch which will open
        the mouth formation in the corner, revealing a chest with FOOD
        in it. Also here is a wooden bridge, which you need to follow.
        Take out the Archer Grunts here, and you will be at the GOAL
        GATE. Step on it and you will have completed the first part of
        this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        --- Ice Mine Part 2 ---

        ITEMS: 7 Keys, 400 Gold, Gold Invincibility, Note, Rapid Fire,
               Electric Shield, 2 Foods
        ENEMIES: Black Wolves, Brown Wolves, Ice Grunts, Bomber Grunts,
                 Suicide Grunts, Archer Grunts, Ice Golem

        You are now in Ice Mine Part 2, the second of three parts to
        this long stage. This one is gonna require a little more work.
        At the starting point, follow the path, taking out the Archer
        Grunts, and you will then be in an open area which has a
        whirlpool in it. Think of this as a landmark. So with that,
        head around it to find a KEY (in the barrel) and a red switch.
        Ignore the red switch and instead head left, taking out more
        Ice Grunts. Follow the pathway all the way to the end to find
        GOLD (in the chest). Now go back to the whirlpool and this
        time, head right and follow the path all the way to the end.
        Here you will find Brown Wolves and a Bomber Grunt in a corner,
        guarding a KEY. Take care of that, and head up the small ramp
        and step on the red switch here (watch out for the rising
        steam). Now back to the whirlpool and step on the red switch
        here, causing crates to lower. Get on that, and it will take
        you to an upper area. Ice Grunts are up here, so take them out
        and step on the nearby red switch, causing another set of
        crates to lower. Get on that and you will be taken to a higher
        area, and up here, more Ice Grunts and an Ice Golem, so take
        them out. Up here will be a KEY, so grab that and head down a
        nearby ramp, where there is a red switch, which you need to
        step on.

        After that, head back to the previous lift, go down it and walk
        across to find a newly opened gate. Go through it and across
        the wooden bridge to find an Archer Grunt and a NOTE in the
        chest (telling you not to leave this area yet). More Ice Grunts
        will come out, so take them out and their generator, and head
        up the screen some to find a wide 3-way intersection, which has
        a RAPID FIRE at it. From here, head up the right path, taking
        out Brown Wolves. At the end is a Den Generator, a KEY and a
        red switch (step on that). Now head back to the 3-way
        intersection, then go up the left pathway, taking out more
        Brown Wolves and Ice Grunts. Also up here, FOOD (in the chest)
        and another red switch, which when you step on will lower the
        nearby enclosed fence, revealing the ELECTRIC SHIELD. I know
        this was pointless, but what can you do ^_^. Now back to the
        3-way intersection, and head down the screen and follow the
        path, taking out more Ice Grunts and Archer Grunts, followed by
        Black Wolves (and their generator) and a Suicide Grunt. Cross
        over the bridge and at the otherside is a KEY and a red
        teleporter (something we haven't seen in forever). Ignore that
        for now, as well as the Ice Grunts (and their generator), and
        keep going a bit more and in the corner. I know I sound crazy
        but watch!

        Strike at the wall to reveal a GOLD INVINCIBILITY, which is
        handy as it will protect you for 30 seconds, plus you gain 3
        Health for every enemy hitting you, so just stand there and
        take it from the Ice Grunts. After it wears off, take out the
        Ice Grunts and step on the red teleporter, then step on the
        next one. After that, just follow the path all the way, taking
        out Ice Grunts, until you get to a red switch. Ignore that for
        now, and instead get the FOOD (in the barrel), GOLD (in the
        chest behind the crates) and follow the path behind that across
        the bridge. Take out the Archer Grunt, and get the GOLD at the
        end of the path and step on the red switch. Brown Wolves and
        Ice Grunts are here too. After that, back to the previous red
        switch, step on it, then onto the several crates, which will
        take you to an upper area. Up here is a 3-way intersection,
        which has GOLD (in the barrel). From here, head up through the
        opened gate, taking out the Ice Grunts and following the path
        to the end. Step on the red switch here, and head back to the
        3-way intersection. Now go through the right opened gate,
        taking out the Suicide Grunt and follow the short path and get
        the KEY (in the barrel). Take out Brown Wolves here as well.
        Also step on the GOAL GATE and you will have completed the
        second part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        --- Ice Mine Part 3 ---

        ITEMS: 3 Keys, Electric Breath, 100 Gold, Magic Potion,
               Runestone #12, Note, 2 Foods
        ENEMIES: Black Wolves, Brown Wolves, Ice Grunts, Ice Golem,
                 Suicide Grunts, Archer Grunts

        You are now in Ice Mine Part 3, the third of three parts to
        this long stage, which isn't that large of an area. At the
        starting point, Ice Grunts will come at you, so take them out.
        Make your way around this (watch out for rising steam) and down
        a ramp. Here is a oddly designed 4-way intersection, which has
        a KEY. From here, go through the locked gate on the rightside
        and follow the long path all the way to the end, where you will
        find Ice Grunts and a red switch. Step on that, then head back
        to the 4-way intersection. Once back there, head through the
        leftside across the bridge, through the opened gate and down
        the path, taking out Black Wolves and their generator. In the
        barrel is a NOTE (telling you that ice guards the Runestone).
        With that, continue going forward a bit more, and step on the
        red switch you see. With that, continue some more to find a ice
        glacier in the middle of the area. Strike at that to reveal
        another red switch. Step on that, then backtrack to the 4-way
        intersection, then up the ramp to the starting point. Once
        here, you will see that an ice patch has risen up to where you
        can step on the red switch.

        Do so, then back down to the 4-way intersection, then back down
        the left pathway all the way past the two red switches and find
        GOLD (in a chest), then down the nearby ramp to find another
        red switch available. Step on that, and the nearby ice wall
        will lower, reveal RUNESTONE #12 (all of this craziness for a
        damn Runestone!). Anyways, make your way back to the 4-way
        interesection, and this time go through the south pathway and
        across the bridge. At the otherside is Ice Grunts, so take them
        out and then head right, to find another red switch, which you
        will step on. Now follow the pathway up the screen, getting
        the KEY (in the barrel) along the wall. Continue onwards,
        across the small bridge and take out more Ice Grunts. Step on
        the red switch and continue along the pathway, taking out more
        Ice Grunts and then Black Wolves. You will also see some
        crates, which you need to step on. This will take you to a
        lower area, where, you just need to follow the path to the end,
        stepping on a red switch (and if you want, take a ice cold
        shower). Back on the crates and to the main area, head across
        for a MAGIC POTION, then down a bit alongside that wall to find
        a ramp.

        Climb up the hill, taking out Black Wolves and their generator,
        then up the next hill. Continue along this pathway, collecting
        the FOOD (in the barrel) along the wall, and step on a red
        switch as well. Doing so will make a nearby red switch
        available, so step on that. Doing so will make a nearby red
        switch available, so step on that. Yes I know, I just repeated
        myself, so what ^_^! Take out the Brown Wolves here, and go
        down the nearby pathway. In this next area, there is a KEY (in
        the barrel) along the wall. Brown Wolves and Ice Grunts are
        also here, so take them out and their generators. Now at the
        otherside, is a locked gate, so go through that and cross the
        bridge. At the otherside, continue onwards to find Black
        Wolves, Ice Grunts and an Ice Golem. Take all them out, and get
        the ELECTRIC BREATH in the corner. Now head up the screen and
        dispose of the Archer Grunt, and cross the bridge behind it.
        Here you will see FOOD (in the chest) and Black Wolves and a
        GOAL GATE. Do what you want, and step on the Goal Gate and you
        will have completed the third part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to the Ice Region and step
        on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

     4. |Level 4: Ice Fissure (Ice#04)|
         -----------------------------

        --- Ice Fissure Part 1 ---

        ITEMS: 700 Gold, Death, Halo, 11 Keys, 3 Magic Potions,
               3 Foods, 3-Way Shot, 2 Notes, Fire Amulet, Time Stop,
               Speed Shoes
        ENEMIES: Ice Grunts, Archer Grunts, Brown Wolves, Black Wolves,
                 Bomber Grunts, Suicide Grunts, Ice Golem

        You are now in Ice Fissure Part 1, the first of two parts to
        this long stage. So here we go, at the starting point, turn
        around and head for the back wall. Strike at it to reveal a
        FIRE AMULET. Now head down the dirt path, down the hill taking
        out Ice Grunts and their Cave Generator. Cross over the small
        bridge, take out the Archer Grunt and Brown and Black Wolves
        (and their generator). Grab the KEY next to the generator and
        continue down this path, going through the locked gate and up
        the small hill. Take out the Black Wolves and the generator,
        then get the KEY and take out Ice Grunts. After that continue
        down the small hill, disposing of Brown Wolves and just past
        that in a barrel is a NOTE (saying that Death is near, so get
        the Halo). Now watch out for the rising steam and cross over
        the pipework. At the otherside is an Archer Grunt and more Ice
        Grunts, so dispose of them and continue along the path and you
        will see a locked gate. Go through that, and at the end of this
        short path is a HALO (in a chest) as well as Brown Wolves. Now
        head back up and you will see DEATH in the corner, so take that
        out. Now walk along the wooden platform and down the ramp and
        you will be at a lower area. Grab the KEY underneath and take
        out the Black Wolves and get the MAGIC POTION (in the barrel).

        After that, continue onwards taking out a Bomber Grunts, Ice
        Grunts and a Suicide Grunt then a bit more to find another KEY
        and FOOD (in a barrel). Cross over the pipework ahead of you
        and defeat Brown Wolves and Ice Grunts then climb up the hill
        in front of you. At the top, go through the locked gate and
        over the pipework to the otherside to find an Archer Grunt and
        Ice Grunts. Dispose of them and continue along this dirt path,
        then taking out Brown Wolves and their generator. Up the hill
        after that and forward taking out more Ice Grunts (this is
        getting repetitive) and then a Bomber Grunt. After a bit, you
        will come across a 3-way intersection (which includes the
        pipework). From the 3-way intersection, grab the MAGIC POTION,
        then cross over the pipework and in this area is Ice Grunts so
        take them out. Items here are FOOD (corner barrel), a KEY
        (under snowpile) and a NOTE (saying to check under every
        barrel). With that, cross over the nearby wooden bridge and at
        the otherside is Brown Wolves, GOLD (in the barrel) and a red
        switch, which you must step on. With that, backtrack your way
        to the 3-way intersection and then head up the screen once you
        get there. As you make your way up the screen, Black Wolves and
        a Suicide Grunt will come out so deal with them. Continue on
        this path through the newly opened gate.

        In this next area, Ice Grunts will be here, and an Ice Golem
        will come out as well. Across from the opened gate is a ramp
        leading down to a small area, which has GOLD (in the chest).
        Now after that, head up the screen to find an Archer Grunt and
        a KEY. With that, make your way in the only direction remaining
        and you'll be at a wooden platform. Make your way down the
        ramps to be at a lower area. At the bottom, Ice Grunts and
        Brown Wolves will start piling up, so use your Magic Potion to
        take out alot of them. Now as there is nothing else here, head
        up the screen to the ice ramp. Get the NOTE in the barrel
        (saying the high road leads to the low road), then head up the
        ice ramp. Brown Wolves will come out, and if you folow them,
        down that path is a 3-WAY SHOT (in the barrel) as well as a Ice
        Grunts and Bomber Grunt, and a red switch and lift taking you
        to the starting point. Instead of that though, from the ice
        ramp, head right and down the shorter ice ramp and down another
        one. A KEY (in the barrel) is nearby, so grab that. Head down
        the screen a bit more, and you will be at a 4-way intersection.
        From here, head down the lower left path taking out Black
        Wolves and getting the KEY (in the barrel) and FOOD. After
        that, continue onwards down the path then turn the corner and
        take out Brown Wolves and Ice Grunts. Now as you turned the
        corner, head up that screen to the corner where you will find a
        snowpile.

        Strike at it to reveal a KEY and a red switch. Step on that,
        and a nearby wall will lower down. Go through there and at the
        end is a chest with TIME STOP in it. Now from the red switch,
        continue along the path taking out Brown Wolves and through the
        locked gate. Cross over the pipework and you will find a red
        switch and a KEY (in the barrel). Step on that, and head left
        of that, striking at the pipework. Go through that and strike
        at the next one, and soon you will see GREEN GOLD and SPEED
        SHOES. Get those and make your way back to the 4-way
        intersection, go on, I'll wait for you *twiddle thumbs*.
        Finally made it back there? Good, now head up the upper left
        pathway through the newly opened gate. Ice Grunts will come
        out, so take them out, and keep going. Soon you will hear a
        Suicide Grunt, so take that out and get the KEY in the corner.
        Now keep going down this path, across the small ice bridge
        taking out more Ice Grunts and then Black Wolves and at the end
        of the path is a MAGIC POTION (in the chest) and a red switch.
        Step on that, then make your way back to the 4-way intersection
        and this time go down the right pathway. Brown Wolves will come
        out, and there is FOOD (in the barrel). After that, step on the
        GOAL GATE and you will have completed the first part of this
        level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        --- Ice Fissure Part 2 ---

        ITEMS: Thunder Hammer, 3-Way Shot, Magic Potion, 2 Foods, Halo,
               2 Notes, Rapid Fire, Invisibility, 10 Keys, Death,
               Fire Breath, Time Stop, Special Item #04: Javelin,
               300 Gold
        ENEMIES: Ice Grunts, Archer Grunts, Brown Wolves, Black Wolves,
                 Bomber Grunts, Suicide Grunts

        You are now in Ice Fissure Part 2, the second of two parts to
        this long stage. And at the starting point, you will be
        instantly greeted by Ice Grunts, so take them out, and after
        that, head up the pathway to find more Ice Grunts. There's a
        NOTE in a nearby barrel (saying that behind rushing water is a
        Javelin). You will also hear a Suicide Grunt so take it out and
        if you follow the narrow path it came from, you'll find RAPID
        FIRE. After that, continue on and step on the red teleporter.
        Once through that, take out the Brown and Black Wolves, Ice
        Grunts and Archer Grunt and get the KEY (in the barrel). After
        that, head across the wooden bridge and at the otherside of
        that is some more Ice Grunts. Take them out (and their
        generator) and continue onwards, down the snowy hill, and
        through the locked gate. Once through here, Ice Grunts and
        Brown and Black Wolves are roaming. Also nearby is GOLD and a
        NOTE (saying the path is cleared when two red switches are
        stepped on). After that, head down the screen and you will be
        at a 3-way intersection. First off, head down the lower
        pathway, taking out Ice Grunts and Brown Wolves and continue
        following the pathway and you will reach another 3-way
        intersection.

        From here, head left, getting the KEY and go through the locked
        gate. Continue following this pathway all the way to the end.
        Yeah I know, looks like there's nothing here, but strike at the
        wall to reveal a 3-WAY SHOT and a red switch. Step on that,
        then backtrack to the previous 3-way intersection. From here,
        go up the previous pathway from before to the next 3-way
        intersection, then once there, go up the upper pathway and
        follow that path. You will come to a closed gate and opened
        gate. Go through the opened gate and follow that short path,
        getting the KEY (in the barrel) and keep following the path to
        a red switch. Step on that, then back track to the closed gate,
        which will now be opened. Go through that, and down the path
        you will find SPECIAL ITEM #04: JAVELIN, so get that for sure!
        Now back track to the previous (mentioned) 3-way interesection,
        then go down the lower pathway to the next 3-way intersection.
        From there, head down the lower right pathway and follow that
        path, taking out Brown Wolves and their generator. Keep going
        past that and take out Ice Grunts. Keep going past that and
        then across the pipework (watch out for the rising steam) and
        take out the Archer Grunt. After that, take out Ice Grunts,
        Brown Wolves and Suicide Grunt. Also keep going head along the
        wall, and strike at the darker part to reveal GOLD (in the
        chest).

        After that, simply keep going across the next pipework and at
        the otherside, take out the Black Wolves and Ice Grunts that
        come to you. Now keep going down the pathway taking out Brown
        Wolves and their generator, and then across the wooden bridge.
        Follow this to the otherside and take out the Ice Grunts. You
        will see a red teleporter, but ignore that for a moment.
        Instead strike at the right pipework to reveal a red switch.
        Step on that, and a nearby area will lower down, which has
        POISON, GOLD and a KEY, so get those and another KEY in the
        other barrel and step on the red teleporter. At the otherside,
        simply follow the path, taking out Brown Wolves and Ice Grunts
        and their generators, and continue following the pathway until
        you reach a 3-way intersection. Now this is where things get
        interesting. You see, to get to the end, you can take one of
        two paths. The short way would involve you taking the path
        going down the screen, while the long way you would have to go
        up the screen. For this walkthrough, we shall be going the
        short way, so with that head down the screen and follow the
        path to the next red teleporter.

        Step on it and once through it, get the nearby KEY and take out
        any enemy you see. Now head down the pathway and you will be at
        a 3-way intersection. Going across the ice bridge does nothing
        for you, but items are TIME STOP and MAGIC POTION as well as
        DEATH and other enemies here. So instead head through the
        locked gate. Head down this pathway to the next 3-way
        intersection, which from here, head down the screen and you
        will find a mighty THUNDER HAMMER in the chest (first time
        seeing this in a level, save it!). Back to the 3-way
        intersection, this time head right and keep following the path
        until you reach another 3-way intersection. Now if you went the
        long way, you would have the usual enemies to deal with, but
        for items you would have 2 KEYS, INVISIBILITY, FIRE BREATH and
        a HALO. Now back at the 3-way intersection, from here, head up
        the screen across the wooden bridge. Over here, you will see
        the GOAL GATE. Also scattered around is a KEY and FOOD as well
        as a Suicide Grunt, Bomber Grunt and Archer Grunt. Do what you
        must, and when you step on the Goal Gate, you will have
        completed the second part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower. Now head back to Ice Camp (Stage 2) and
        make your way to the Secret Stage entrance. Stand on it, and
        get ready for a fun secret stage!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -------------------------
     5. |Ice Secret Stage (Ice#05)|
         -------------------------

        ITEMS: 76 Yellow Coins
        ENEMIES: None

        This secret stage is rather easy to get through, if you know
        what you're doing. Your goal here is to get all 76 Yellow Coins
        in 75 seconds. Now if you have Speed Shoes, this might help,
        but even if you don't, it should still be easy. From the
        starting point, follow the path of coins to a 4-way
        intersection. Now from here, head right and follow the path to
        the 3-way intersection, and keep going collecting the trail of
        Yellow Coins. You will eventually work your way around back to
        the 3-way intersection, thus collecting 28 Yellow Coins. Once
        there, head down the screen back to the 4-way intersection,
        then follow the trail of Yellow Coins, collecting 18 Yellow
        coins, bringing your total up to (around) 46 Yellow Coins.

        If you're here with 35 seconds left, you're in great shape. Now
        you should be at a 3-way intersection, which if you are, head
        up the narrow up and start collecting more Yellow Coins, and
        then you will come to an open area. Up to this point you should
        have 17 Yellow Coins more. Now follow the trail some more,
        collecting 9 more Yellow Coins and you will be in a small area.
        Collect the last remaining 4 Yellow Coins and you will have
        completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, well, no new characters really unlocked, oh
        well. Anyways let's head over to the Items Shop. You should
        have about 5,700 Gold. I'd say buy some Thunder Hammers and
        Rapid Fire and 3-Way Shots and maybe the Phoenix Familiar and
        anything that is long-ranged attacks. Now with that, head back
        to the Ice Region and step on the final Stage Gate as we move
        onto a boss fight!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ------------------------------
     4. |Ice Region Boss Stage (Ice#06)|
         ------------------------------

        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Scroll (Found in Town Venomous Spire)

        Get ready for the giant abominale snowman! This fight is just
        like the Dragon fight, only you're a bit stronger to take the
        attacks so he's a bit easier to deal with than the Dragon.
        There are no items here, so don't worry about finding any. The
        Yeti's attacks are shooting out streams of ice breah as well as
        powerful shockwaves which can't be avoided. He will also try to
        swipe down on you which will cause some massive damage to you.
        What should you do, well, run back and forth, dodging the ice
        breath, but make sure you get as far away from the Yeti as
        possible (preferably run along the lower part of your screen).
        When you get an opening, use up all your Thunder Hammers, then
        use your 3-Way Shot/Rapid Fire combo, which will do some
        massive damage to him. With the right strategy, you will have
        defeated this boss.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the magical glass mirror piece takes
        its place in the window frame. First off, head over to the
        Items Shop and start buying some Rapid Fire, 3-Way Shots and
        Thunder Hammers, plus anything else that is a long range
        attack. Now head over to the completed mirror and you will be
        teleported to the next level, the Desecrated Temple!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

      --------------------------
  F: |AREA 5 - Desecrated Temple|
      --------------------------

     "Now, quickly, you have a chance to get Skorne's hiding place in
     my sacred cathedral. Fenter the light and be teleported into the
     now desecrated hall. His allies are plentiful there and will do
     their worst to stop you from reaching him! At the end of the
     cathedral you will find Skorne in the temple. Good luck!"

         ------------------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Desecrated Temple (Temp#01)|
         ------------------------------------

        ITEMS: 1,200 Gold, Speed Shoes, Fire Breath, Fire Amulet,
               3-Way Shot, Death
        ENEMIES: Red Gremlins, Armed Zombies

        You are now in the Desecrated Temple, get ready for a pain in
        the butt level! Your only enemies throughout this stage is Red
        Gremlins and Armed Zombies, which are easy to deal with. What
        makes this level a problem is that they will start piling up
        alot, making things very annoying. Also note that there are 12
        chests here and no Keys, so you won't be able to unlock all of
        them. I will tell you now, all the chests contain GOLD in them.
        Finally, use my map to help you get around. So with that, at
        the starting point, you will be instantly greeted by Red
        Gremlins coming from a Tile Generator. With that head to the
        chest and follow the pathway behind it to find a red switch.
        Step on that, then go in the opposite direction across the room
        to find another red switch, so step on that as well. Now head
        left from there until you reach the light shining on the floor.
        From there, head in front of that and follow alongside the
        seats until you get halfway across the room. Now go up through
        the openeing and continue going forward to the left wall and
        you will be in a small opening. Over here, you will see a 3-WAY
        SHOT and red switch. Step on that and across from there an
        opening will reveal a FIRE AMULET and a red switch. Step on
        that and the middle door will open revealing another red
        switch, so step on that.

        With that, head all the way across the room (it should be a
        straight shot across) and you will see a small ramp leading to
        a statue. Strike at the statue to reveal another red switch.
        Armed Zombies will also join the fun. Step on that, then go to
        where DEATH is. If it don't attack you at all, leave it be so
        you can use it as a landmark. Now go behind it, you will see
        FIRE BREATH and another red switch. Step on that then the
        otherside will open up revealing SPEED SHOES and a red switch,
        so step on that. Now head down the screen and make your way
        back to the starting point. From there, head left to find
        another small ramp leading to a statue (behind the chest).
        Strike at it, to reveal a red switch, so step on that then head
        back to where Death is. Once there, a doorway will open up,
        revealing another red switch, which you must step on. Now head
        down the screen until you reach the shining light on the floor.
        From there, head up the screen and you will see a giant pillar
        on the floor. head around that (from the right) and squeeze
        through the narrow gap and continue going up the screen, and
        you will soon see a covered table. From there, continue going
        north until you see a pedistal with a book on it. Strike at
        that to reveal a red switch, which you must step on. Now head
        back to the table to step on another red switch and finally
        head back up the screen and you will see the GOAL GATE in front
        of you. Step on that and you will be taken to a boss fight with
        Skorne!

         ----------------------------------
     2. |Altar Of Skorne - Skorne (Temp#02)|
         ----------------------------------

        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Soul Savior (from Battle Towers)

        Here we go, the fight with Skorne, and it's rather tough.
        Skorne will rise up and instantly begin his assault on you. His
        attacks include pounding the ground causing it to shake, and
        breathing either a single fireball or a stream of fireballs at
        you. Getting too close to him will result in him strike at you,
        causing some serious damage to you. Now you have a huge
        disadvantage here which is you don't have much room to fight
        in. If you have alot of health, like over 7,000 you should be
        able to handle this fight. If so, simply stand where you are,
        and start using the 3-Way Shot/Rapid Fire combo. This combo
        will take his health down very quickly (in about 30 seconds
        actually). That should do it, but if not, he should have a very
        tiny bit of health left that you should be able to take him
        down easily. Witht he right strategy, Skorne will be defeated!

        And with Skorne defeated for the time being, you have completed
        this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, shuffle through your Inventory to discover
        you have new attack items: Super Flame Breath, Super Electric
        Breath, Acid Hammers, and Fire Hammers. Save these as you
        should use them in the final battle, because you won't be able
        to find anymore along the way and you can't buy them either.
        Now after talking to the wizard, head over to the newly opened
        Battlefield Region and step on the first Stage Gate as we move
        onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

      ---------------------------
  G: |AREA 6 - Battlefield Region|
      ---------------------------

     "By banishing Skorne to the underworld he's managed to free his
     slaughtered soliders souls and raise an undead army against my
     tower! Their trenches surround the foot of my fortress and these
     lead to the siege towers from which the battle is waged. At the
     end is the fortress where Skorne has no doubt hidden the 13th
     Runestone. You must overcome this army and save my tower!"

         ------------------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Battle Trenches (Battle#01)|
         ------------------------------------

        --- Battle Trenches Part 1 ---

        ITEMS: Fire Amulet, Invisibility, Death, Time Stop, 3-Way Shot,
               700 Gold, Thunder Hammer, 2 Notes, Rapid Fire, 16 Keys,
               5 Foods, 2 Magic Potions
        ENEMIES: Armed Skeletons, Bone Dogs, Suicide Skeleton,
                 Archer Skeleton, Bomber Skeleton, Wooden Golem

        You are now in Battlefield Trenches Part 1, the first of two
        parts to this somewhat short stage. Also, keep in mind that
        there will be alot of red switches. Most of them does nothing,
        so keep that in mind. So with that, at the starting point head
        over and get the KEY (in the barrel). Also Armed Skeleton will
        come out, so take them out and their Tent Generator. Now head
        down the screen along the short wall and at the end, head up
        the otherside, getting the NOTE (telling you that the next
        level has the Soul Savior) and GOLD (in the chest). Continue
        heading down the screen to get a KEY and GOLD (in the barrel
        and chest). After that, head up the screen alongside the ledge
        towards the starting point. Once there, head down the hill and
        follow the pathway downwards, and you will be faced with more
        Armed Skeletons and a Suicide Skeleton. Also get the KEY while
        you're at it and continue along the pathway. Soon you will come
        to a locked gate, so go through it, and get the GOLD (in the
        barrel), take out the Armed Skeletons and through the next
        locked gate. Continue onwards down the path, taking out the
        Bomber Skeleton followed by more Armed Skeletons as well as an
        Archer Skeleton on a dock, which guards a MAGIC POTION. Now
        continue down the hilly pathway and you will eventually reach
        some FOOD (in the chest) as well as another Archer Skeleton so
        take that out.

        At the bottom of the hill, Bone Dogs and Armed Skeletons will
        come out. Now this is a rather wide area, and your main goal is
        to get across to the otherside where the ramp is going down.
        Scattered in this area, there are 2 GOLDS, 3 KEYS, a 3-WAY SHOT
        and DEATH. Armed Skeletons and Bone Dogs are also scattered
        around, so take them out as well as Tent Generators and
        Doghouse Generators. Once at the ramp head down it and here's
        where things get interesting. The rest of this level is kinda
        maze like, so be ready. At the bottom of the ramp, take out the
        Armed Skeletons, and go left through the locked gate to get
        FOOD. Now head the opposite direction and follow the pathway to
        a 3-way intersection, taking out Armed Skeletons, Bone Dogs and
        Suicide Skeleton. From there, head right and follow the pathway
        to the end, and go through the locked gate to get the RAPID
        FIRE. Now head back to the 3-way intersection then go up the
        screen and follow the path around the corner then up the rock
        pile rampe and you will be on an upper area. Here there will be
        Armed Skeletons and a KEY (in a barrel) and a red switch, which
        you need to step on which will lower a boulder in your way. Now
        head back down the ramp and continue up the screen and just
        past the rising spikes is a 4-way intersection as well as Bone
        Dogs and a TIME STOP (in the boulder).

        Once here, if you go through the upperleft path, you will be
        taken to a 3-WAY SHOT as well as Armed Skeletons. The lower
        right path takes you to 2 KEYS, FOOD, and a FIRE AMULET (in a
        shack), as well as Suicide Skeletons and Armed Skeletons. Your
        main objective is to go up the upper right pathway and as you
        make your way through here, you will get FOOD. Continue along
        the path and around the corner until you reach the 3-way
        intersection, taking out Bone Dogs, Archer Skeletons and Armed
        Skeletons. You will also see a NOTE here (which will tell you
        to climb the tower to see a way through). Now head left through
        the locked gate, strike at the boulder in the way and climb up
        the small ramp. Up here, you will be greeted by a Wooden Golem,
        as well as Armed Skeletons. Also here is a KEY (directly across
        from the ramp) and a red switch, which you can step on. Also up
        here is a THUNDER HAMMER and GOLD (both in chests) and a Bomber
        Skeleton. Near the Bomber Skeleton is a wooden bridge (guarded
        by rising spikes), which you need to cross and at the
        otherside. Over here there will be Armed Skeletons and Bone
        Dogs, so take them out and head left towards a ramp going up.
        On the otherside of the ramp is GOLD (in the chest). Up the
        ramp you go, and step on the red switch and board the wooden
        platform. You will then be taken up on the observation decks
        (which will make weird bubbling sounds O_o).

        At the top, head across the wooden bridge to the otherside,
        taking out Armed Skeletons and stepping on the red switch. Back
        on the lift, go down to the main area, and if you want just to
        the right of the deck, follow the path to find a MAGIC POTION
        and Armed Skeletons. Now down the ramp and across the small
        wooden bridge. Once across it, head right and to the ramp going
        down. Now head down the pathway, past the 3-way intersection
        until you reach another 3-way intersection. From here, head up
        the screen taking out more Armed Skeletons until you reach
        another 3-way intersection. From here, going left will net you
        a 2 KEYS and INVISIBILITY as well as Armed Skeltons, but
        instead you want to go right. Do so and pick up another KEY at
        the next 3-way intersection. From here, head up the screen,
        taking out more Armed Skeletons and continue onwards and you'll
        hear a Suicide Skeleton. After that, head up the ramp in this
        area, Bone Dogs and Armed Skeletons as well as a KEY, FOOD and
        GOLD and a red switch (which does nothing). After getting all
        of that, head up the screen and up the hill, where another
        Suicide Skeleton will come out. Take that out and you will see
        the GOAL GATE, which by stepping on it, you will have completed
        the first part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        --- Battle Trenches Part 2 ---

        ITEMS: 200 Gold, Levitation, 3 Notes, 3 Keys, Magic Potion,
               2 Foods, Halo, Death, Secret Stage #05
        ENEMIES: Armed Skeletons, Bone Dogs, Suicide Skeleton,
                 Archer Skeleton, Bomber Skeleton, Wooden Golem

        You are now in Battlefield Trenches Part 2, the second of two
        parts to this somewhat short stage. Actually this part is
        shorter than the first. So from the starting point, head up the
        pathway and take out the Suicide Skeleton that comes down the
        hill. You will also see a wooden bridge on the right, so think
        of this spot as a 3-way intersection. Now here's where it's
        interesting, there are two different ways you can take to get
        to the goal. The easier way to go would be forward, so with
        that, head forward taking out Armed Skeletons and Bone Dogs
        until you get to a ramp. From there, don't go down it, but if
        you go left of there, you will find LEVITATION (in the barrel).
        Now you can go down the ramp and just a few feet from there is
        a 4-way intersection. You'll get a NOTE (saying that a
        makeshift hut helps you to the goal) past the locked gate, but
        ignore that and just take the right path. Follow it all the way
        to the 3-way intersection, taking out Armed Skeletons along the
        way. From there, going forward you will find a NOTE (saying
        that a red rock keeps a secret), but instead you want to go
        right and when you do, continue onwards to the next 3-way
        intersection taking out Armed Skeletons and their generator.
        This is where you would have ended up at if you went the other
        way, which the items there are MAGIC POTION, HALO and a NOTE
        (saying that in a lower trench is a switch).

        So with that out of the way, from the next 3-way intersection,
        head up the screen until you get to a rock ramp, and go up it.
        Up here in this first area is Bone Dogs and Armed Skeletons as
        well as a red switch under a crate. After that, go forward some
        more across the wooden bridge. Over here, you will see a red
        switch right away. To the left is 2 GOLDS, a KEY and DEATH plus
        Bone Dogs. From the red switch, head up the screen to find 2
        KEYS and Armed Skeletons in the back, as well as another wooden
        bridge which will lead to FOOD. Head to the Keys and you will
        notice a boulder which you need to strike at, revealing a red
        switch. Step on that and you will see the fence ahead of you
        lower down, but you must get to it. With that, backtrack all
        the way to the rock ramp and go down it. Now from there, head
        up the screen (or go right, whichever) and follow the path all
        the way, taking out Armed Skeletons and their generators.
        Ignore both 3-way intersections (although down the second one
        is a locked gate and some FOOD) and keep going until you hear
        the Suicide Skeleton. Take that out as well as any Bone Dogs
        and Armed Skeletons that comes out. Also to the left is SECRET
        STAGE #05, so keep that in mind for later. Now simply go
        forward up the screen taking out more Armed Skeletons and their
        generators. At the top of the hill is more enemies and a wooden
        bridge which will lead to the GOAL GATE. Step on that and you
        will have completed the second part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Battlefield Region and step
        on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

     2. |Level 2: Battle Towers (Battle#02)|
         ----------------------------------

        --- Battle Towers Part 1 ---

        ITEMS: Food, 3 Notes, 3 Magic Potions, Death, 100 Gold, 4 Keys,
               Levitation, Rapid Fire, Special Item #05: Soul Saviour
        ENEMIES: Armed Skeletons, Bone Dogs, Suicide Skeleton,
                 Archer Skeleton, Wooden Golem

        You are now in Battlefield Towers Part 1, the first of two
        parts to this somewhat short stage. So here we go, at the
        starting point, head down the wooden pathway, taking out Armed
        Skeletons and you will see a red switch instantly. Step on that
        and head forward taking out more Armed Skeletons, then up the
        far ramp. At the top is an Archer Skeleton and more Armed
        Skeletons, so take those out and continue on the wooden pathway
        down another ramp. Bone Dogs and Armed Skeletons are here, so
        dispose of them. At the bottom is a 3-way intersection, and
        once there, head left (or right, depending the camera angle)
        and follow that pathway and you will see a red switch, which
        you must step on. After that, head back to the 3-way
        intersection and this time head down the other pathway where
        Bone Dogs will be come out at. Follow that pathway all the way,
        then down a wooden ramp, taking out Armed Skeletons, then down
        another ramp until you are on the ground level. Once down here,
        first off strike at the closet wooden crate to reveal a MAGIC
        POTION. Now at the ramp, head right (or behind the ramp) and a
        platform will rise up holding a Wooden Golem. Take that out and
        continue heading behind the ramp. In this area are Armed
        Skeletons, as well as a KEY, MAGIC POTION and LEVITATION.
        There's also a red switch which you need to step on.

        With that, head back to the ramp, then up it and you will find
        a red switch has been revealed. Step on that, then go back down
        the ramp to find a red switch on a crate has been lowered. Step
        on that, and behind there will be a RAPID FIRE (in the barrel)
        and DEATH (in the chest), so deal with that. Now another red
        switch will be revealed nearby, so step on that then on the
        next red switch (to get to it, enter through the left side).
        Now go back up the ramp and follow the wooden pathway all the
        way until you get to that 3-way intersection from way before.
        Once there, head back up that ramp and at the top, another red
        switch will be available, so step on that. After doing that,
        continue following the pathway back towards the starting point.
        Instead of going there though, head up the ramp across from the
        switch and at the end of that path, stand on the lift and you
        will be taken to the lower area. Suicide Skeletons, Armed
        Skeletons, Bone Dogs will greet you. Also by stepping off the
        lift, you will find in the barrels, a KEY and NOTE (saying to
        access a tower, you must break a wall for a switch). Now from
        there, head up the screen and into the pit, taking out more
        enemies. In the pit, there is a pillar, which you need to
        strike at, revealing a red switch.

        Step on that, then head northeastardly out of the pit and
        follow the pathway, taking out more Armed Skeletons. You will
        see a red switch under the observation deck, so step on it, but
        it will not raise the small platform you may have noticed
        tucked into the ground (I dunno what that goes to, so don't
        ask). After that, follow the path further to find another red
        switch and a KEY (in the barrel) nearby. Step on that, then
        step on a nearby red switch which will become available. After
        that, continue going down the pathway some more, taking out
        more Armed Skeletons. As you make your way to the end of the
        pathway, you will find a KEY (in the barrel) and further down
        is a red switch which you will step on, a NOTE (saying to open
        all doors to get out). Now with all that out of the way, make
        your way back to the lift, and yes I will wait for you *goes to
        the bathroom*. Finally at the pit, good, then let it take you
        up to the wooden pathways. Once on the wooden pathway, head
        down the ramp, then head right and follow the pathway to the
        3-way intersection. From there, go forward to the rising spikes
        again, and across from there, you will see that SPECIAL ITEM
        #05: SOUL SAVIOR will be available for grabbing.

        With that, head back to the 3-way intersection, then go up the
        screen (not up the ramp) and follow that pathway all the way,
        taking out Armed Skeletons and Bone Dogs. You will notice an
        observation deck which has a KEY in it, but I'd be damn to know
        how to get it (no big, since it's not needed really). Anyways,
        continue onwards with the pathway through a newly opened gate
        and soon you will be at a 3-way intersection. Keep this in mind
        as you will be coming back to it. Continue forward to the open
        area, and to the right is a Wooden Golem as well as GOLD (in
        the barrel). To the left is a Wooden Golem and a red switches
        which you need to step on. This will lower the gate in front of
        you, causing the Wooden Golem to attack. Take it out and step
        on the red switch it was guarding. Also get the NOTE behind it
        (saying to have the Soul Savior with you as it will protect you
        from Skorne). Now step on the red switch in the corner and
        strike at the wall across from the bridge and you will find
        FOOD. Now back to the 3-way intersection and head up the
        screen. An Archer Skeleton is here, so take it out. Also along
        the right wall, strike at it to reveal a MAGIC POTION. Get that
        and step on the nearby GOAL GATE (take out the Archer Skeleton)
        and you will have completed the first part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        --- Battle Towers Part 2 ---

        ITEMS: Key, Invincibility, 200 Gold, Fire Amulet, 5 Foods
        ENEMIES: Armed Skeletons, Bone Dogs, Suicide Skeleton,
                 Archer Skeleton, Bomber Skeleton, Wooden Golem

        You are now in Battlefield Towers Part 2, the second of two
        parts to this somewhat short stage. From the starting point,
        head up the screen taking out the Bomber Skeleton and Armed
        Skeleton. You will see a red switch, which stepping on it will
        cause a lift to come down with an Archer Skeleton on it, but go
        to the right of that into the small cave and you will step on a
        red switch. This will cause another one to rise up as well as a
        KEY, so deal with that and get on the lift. You will be taken
        to a wooden pathway area, which you need to go down to the
        3-way intersection. Once here, head over and step on the red
        switch (watch out for the rising spikes) then climb up the
        other ramp. Armed Skeletons and Bone Dogs will be here, so take
        them out. Continue on this path to find FOOD (in the chest) and
        a red switch tucked away. Get that, and then you will see the
        nearby gate open up. After that, head over to a nearby chest,
        which has INVINCIBILITY and a red switch, then step on that and
        go through the newly opened gate and up the ramp, and down the
        ramp. Now at this small 3-way intersection, go up the other
        ramp, take out the Bomber Skeleton and step on the red switch.

        Now go down the ramp all the way to the bottom, taking out
        Armed Skeletons and you will see a red switch in the corner.
        Step on that, and an entire platform will lower down, with a
        Bomber Skeleton on it. Take that out, step on the red switch it
        was guarding and follow the newly made pathway. Along this
        pathway, you will be faced with Armed Skeletons, Bomber
        Skeletons and Bone Dogs, so take them out and their generators.
        A FIRE AMULET and FOOD will also be along this path. As you
        make your way around the corner, you'll hear a Suicide
        Skeleton. After that, simply make your way up the winding
        pathway and you will find a red switch. Step on that, then
        strike at the wall behind it to reveal FOOD. Now get that and
        continue along the pathway taking out Archer Skeletons and
        Armed Skeletons. Soon you will come to another red switch,
        which you need to step on. Around that area, if you strike at
        the rock pillar along the wall, you will find more FOOD. After
        dealing with that, continue across the wooden pathway, taking
        out more Armed Skeletons until you get to an open area filled
        with Bone Dogs and Armed Skeletons.

        Heading down the screen from here will get you GOLD, but you
        need to head up the screen and you will soon see a wooden ramp.
        This is a 3-way intersection, which you need to keep in mind.
        With that, continue going upwards and find a NOTE (saying to
        either release the Wooden Golems or quietly walk past them
        *shrugs*). More Armed Skeletons are here, so begin taking them
        out, and continue following this pathway and you will
        eventually trigger an action where you will have to fight out
        three Wooden Golems. My advice, group them together, use up all
        your Magic Potions and use your Super Attack, then divide and
        conquer. After that, continue onwards with the pathway, taking
        out Bone Dogs. Once you make it to the end of the pathway, you
        will find GOLD (in the chest), a Doghouse Generator and a red
        switch. Step on that, then make your way back to the 3-way
        intersection. Once there, head up the wooden ramp, taking out
        Armed Skeletons (watch out for the rising spikes). Continue
        along this pathway taking out some more Armed Skeletons and you
        will see the GOAL GATE. Step on that and you will have
        completed the second part of this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Battlefield Region and step
        on the next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

     3. |Level 3: Battle Infernal Fortress (Battle#03)|
         ---------------------------------------------

        ITEMS: 13 Keys, 3 Foods, 500 Gold, 4 Notes, Light Amulet,
               Time Stop, 3-Way Shot, Runestone #13, 2 Magic Potions,
               Thunder Hammer, Levitation, Fire Amulet
        ENEMIES: Armed Skeletons, Bone Dogs, Suicide Skeleton,
                 Archer Skeleton, Bomber Skeleton, Wooden Golem

        You are now in Battlefield Infernal Fortress, which is not
        broken down into parts, but it is a lengthy level with lots of
        backtracking! So at the starting point, start by heading up the
        screen, taking out the Suicide Skeleton. As you make your way
        up, Armed Skeletons will also be here, as well as a KEY (in the
        barrel) and continue onwards till you see Bone Dogs. From
        there, go to the right of them behind the fence and strike at
        the small enclosed wall to get a KEY, then head up the ramp
        next to the Doghouse Generator. Follow that pathway, taking out
        Archer Skeletons and Armed Skeletons and step on the red switch
        you see. Now head back down the ramp then up the screen, taking
        out more Armed Skeletons. You will see a KEY on the rightside,
        as well as a light brown crate which you can strike at (though
        it's not important). You will also see a small opening on the
        leftside, which you need to go through. Here there will be more
        Armed Skeletons and Bone Dogs for you to take out. Once over
        here, head either up or down the screen and around the middle
        spiked fencing. You will encounter an Archer Skeleton either
        way and a wide wooden ramp near it. Walk onto the ramp and onto
        another ramp going upwards, and through the locked gate at the
        top. Up here, a KEY and FOOD (in the barrels), as well as Bone
        Dogs, plus a red switch, which you need to step on. Now head
        back down the ramps and up the screen and you will notice a
        large gate opened up for you, so go through that. Take out the
        Armed Skeletons here, and follow the pathway across the wooden
        bridge (nothing in the barrel).

        Once across it, go down the screen a bit to get a KEY (in the
        barrel), then head down the small wooden ramp on the leftside
        where the Armed Skeletons are, take them out, then up the
        screen a few steps to be at a 3-way intersection. From here,
        first head down the left pathway taking out more Armed
        Skeletons and a Bomber Skeleton. Also here is a KEY (in the
        barrel) and a red switch which you must step on. Now back to
        the 3-way intersection, and this time head down the right
        pathway and follow it past the large closed gate (but you will
        be coming back to it) and through the locked gate (watch out
        for rising spikes). Continue on past this and down the curved
        hill and down here will be some Bone Dogs, so take them out as
        well as their Doghouse Generator. Follow the short path to a
        small wooden bridge and cross it, taking out Armed Skeletons
        and their Tent Generator. Also here is a red switch, which you
        should step on, and a NOTE in the barrel (telling you that this
        switch lets you in the fort, but you can't proceed). With that,
        head back across the bridge, up the hill and to the large
        closed gate. Go through there (taking out Armed Skeletons) and
        the camera will instantly switch on you, so your directions
        will be reversed if you will. Now once through here, if you
        want, head right and follow the path, taking out Armed
        Skeletons to find a MAGIC POTION (in a chest) hidden behind a
        fake wall. However your main goal is to go left from the large
        opened gate along the wall and you will barely see a chest. In
        it is a NOTE (telling you to seek the hidden chests). From
        there, head around the crates and you will noticed another
        large opened gate.

        Before going through that, items remaining in this area is a
        3-WAY SHOT (hidden in the back wall) and FOOD, a KEY and GOLD
        (up on the crates). Get those if you want, then go through the
        nearby large opened gate. More Armed Skeletons are here, so
        begin taking them out. For starters, once you are just through
        the gate, if you want, head down the screen and strike at the
        crate, you can get on the other crates and get 2 GOLDS. But
        more importantly, from the gate, head straight ahead along the
        wall and follow the path forward taking out Armed Skeletons and
        their generators. Soon you will come to a spiked fencing, so go
        along that and get to the otherside. Zigzag up and down between
        the spiked fences, taking out Armed Skeletons. Once through all
        of this, you will be in a small open area, which has 2 KEYS and
        a TIME STOP, as well as more Armed Skeletons and a Wooden
        Golem. After disposing with all of this, head to the left side
        where you see a red switch. Step on it and a lift will drop
        down. Board it and you will be taken to an upper area. Up here,
        first head to the tiny area on the right where there are Armed
        Skeletons as well as a KEY and a red switch (step on this). Now
        where you got off the lift, head up the screen along this
        pathway, taking out more Armed Skeletons and soon their Tent
        Generator. You will see a red switch as well, so step on that
        and another lift will rise up. Down there are just Armed
        Skeletons and Bone Dogs plus LEVITATION, a KEY and a NOTE
        (telling you about the 13th Runestone). Nothing else is here,
        so if you collected these, back up the lift and continue down
        the pathway.

        Soon you will come to a red teleporter, so step on that and
        once through it, come down the screen following this pathway.
        As you do, take out the Bomber Skeleton and go through the
        locked gate (watch out for the rising spikes). Once through
        here, continue going down the pathway and step on the red
        switch, which will trigger a lift. Board that and you will be
        taken down to the lower pathway, so follow that all the way
        around. Armed Skeletons, Archer Skeletons and Suicide Skeletons
        will be in your way, so deal with them. At the end of the path
        is a red teleporter and a red switch. Step on the switch and
        once through the teleporter, continue down this pathway and at
        the bottom of this hillish path is alot of Armed Skeletons. Now
        from here, head down the screen and you will see a large wooden
        ramp. Ignore that for now and go right beside it to find a NOTE
        (telling you some riddle about switches). Now right here, you
        might not notice it clearly, but there's a red teleporter just
        to the left of the Note (behind the rising spikes). Step on
        that, and once through it, you will be attacked by Bone Dogs,
        so take them out and follow this short path all the way to
        the end. A red switch is here, so step on that, and head back
        to where the large wooden ramp is. Once there, cross up and
        over it to the otherside and at the otherside, head up the
        screen alongside the right wall, taking out Armed Skeletons and
        Bone Dogs, as well as their generators. You will be at a dead
        end, but don't you worry, strike at it to reveal a KEY and
        RUNESTONE #13 (how lucky for you, this is the final one!!).
        Now head back to the wooden ramp and, here's an interesting
        little glitch that'll help you bypass alot of stuff.

        From the ramp, go directly left and follow the pathway to the
        end. You will notice it's a dead end, but if you hug the right
        wall and go into the corner, you will actually there get
        through. This also works if you're coming from the otherside.
        Now back to the rest of the level. At the ramp, head over to
        the red switch, and get on the lift. You will now be taken to
        an upper area, where there is Armed Skeletons, Suicide
        Skeletons and Bone Dogs. Continue up the pathway, to find a KEY
        then keep going to the otherside where you will find FOOD. Keep
        going a bit more and for this next area, you will be present
        with several closed gates. This will be kinda confusing so
        here's a little map for you ^_^.
        See the red switch, well, step        ---- ---- ---- ---- ----
        on it, which will open up DOOR        |05| |04| |03| |02| |01|
        #01. In there is another red          ------------------------
        switch which will open DOOR           |                      |
        #04. There is a LIGHT AMULET    ------    --------------------
        and a switch which will open    |06|      |
        DOOR #02. Also Bone Dogs are     --    ----
        over here. Go to DOOR #02 and   |07|   |
        step on that red switch to       --    |
        open DOOR #03. In there is GOLD    |   |
        and another red switch which     --    |
        will open DOOR #05. In there    |08|   |
        is yet another red switch,      --------
        which you need to step on.
        After doing that, head up the screen a bit to see a red switch
        on an observation deck, along with an Archer Skeleton. Step on
        that and DOOR #06 will open. Inside there is a red switch,
        which stepping on it will open DOOR #08. In there is a MAGIC
        POTION and a red switch. Stepping on that will open DOOR #07.
        And for all these switches, you will get the THUNDER HAMMER in
        DOOR #07! Okay so maybe that was a waste of time, well what are
        you gonna do.

        Anyways, from DOOR #07, simply head left down the path and
        continue following the pathway around, and step on the red
        switch. This will cause another lift to come up, so get on that
        and you will be taken to a lower area. Down here, head around
        the crates and Bone Dogs will come out. Take them out and you
        will see a ramp leading onto the crates, which as GOLD on it.
        Keep going down the screen along the crates and at the end of
        that, head up the otherside (nothing is further down so no
        worries). As you make it up the otherside, head around the
        corner, and you will be at the area where the glitch was. Now,
        go through the locked gate and climb up the wooden ramp taking
        out more Bone Dogs then Armed Skeletons. You will see a large
        closed gate, which you will be coming back to, but in the
        meantime, continue onwards down the path, taking out more Armed
        Skeletons as well as a Bomber Skeleton. At the end of the path
        is a red switch, which you must step on. Now backtrack to the
        large gate, and it will be opened. Go through there and you
        will find the GOAL GATE and a FIRE AMULET (in the chest). Get
        that, and step on the Goal Gate and you will have completed
        this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, watch as the Runestone take its place in the
        center of the tower, which will open up the Stage Gate leading
        to the Gates Of The Underworld! Now head back to the Battle
        Trenches (Stage 1) and make your way to the Secret Stage
        entrance. Stand on it, and get ready for a fun secret stage!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -------------------------------
     4. |Battle Secret Stage (Battle#04)|
         -------------------------------

        ITEMS: 85 Green Coins
        ENEMIES: None

        This secret stage is quite possibly the easiest one to get
        through. Your goal here is to collect 85 Green Coins in 85
        seconds. If you have Speed Shoes, this will help alot more, but
        even if you don't, you'll still be able to get through here
        with ease. So, from the starting point, head north to find the
        first Green Coins, and simply follow the trail of Green Coins
        all the way around. Do not go off the trail, because you will
        lose some seconds if you get sidetracked. Keep following the
        trail of Green Coins and you will eventually come to a 3-way
        intersection of Green Coins. It won't matter which way you
        take, but my advice would be to follow the trail going right.
        Be careful as getting the last half because you will have to
        make some diagonal turns, but as long as you keep following the
        trail, you should do fine. Finally after all of that, continue
        following the trail and you'll be back at the split off,
        getting your final Green Coins. After the last Green Coin is
        collected, you will have unlocked a brand new character known
        as the Tigress!
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, you can now head to the center of the tower
        and go into the Gates Of The Underworld. But before you do
        that, head over to the Items Shop and start buying some Rapid
        Fire, 3-Way Shots and Thunder Hammers, plus anything else that
        is a long range attack. Now head over to the newly made Stage
        Gate in the middle and you will be teleported to the next
        level, the Gates Of The Underworld!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

      --------------------------------
  H: |AREA 7 - Gates Of The Underworld|
      --------------------------------

     "No time to lose! While the gateway to the underworld is open you
     must descend into the fiery pits below and vanquish Skorne once
     and for all! Go forth and may the graces of light go with you!"

         ------------------------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Gates Of The Underworld (Gate#01)|
         ------------------------------------------

        ITEMS: Fire Breath, Magic Potion, 2 Time Stops, Fire Amulet,
               Rapid Fire, 3-Way Shot
        ENEMIES: Demon Knights, Red Gremlins, Zombie Villagers,
                 Lava Golem

        You are now in Gates Of The Underworld, making your way to the
        final confrontation! This is a pretty lengthy level with only a
        few enemies and items. However like the Desecrated Temple, the
        enemies here will start piling up fast! So, at the starting
        point, start by heading down the screen to get a MAGIC POTION.
        Now head up the screen and follow the path to the open area,
        where Demon Knights and Zombie Villagers will come out so
        dispose of them and the Tile Generators. This is a 3-way
        intersection, so keep it in mind, and from here, head left and
        follow the path to the end. You will see a red switch which you
        must step on. Now back to the 3-way intersection, head right
        this time and follow the pathway to its end, taking out Demon
        Knights and you will find another red switch. Step on that and
        a nearby platform will rise up, which you need to cross over.
        Red Gremlins will be over here as well, so take them out and
        continue up this pathway to find another red switch. Step on
        that, then make your way back to the 3-way intersection, and
        head left. Red Gremlins and Demon Knights will come over a new
        platform, so take that path. As you make it over here, you will
        find TIME STOP in the back corner as well as a red switch,
        which you must step on. This will cause a nearby platform to
        rise up, which you need to cross over. Next up, Demon Knights
        and Zombie Villagers and in the back corner a FIRE AMULET. Also
        strike at the boulder in the middle to reveal a red switch,
        which you must step on this.

        Another platform will be available so cross that, and once you
        do, take out the enemies here and step on the red switch. Like
        before, another platform will come up, but this time, it will
        act as a 3-way intersection. And with that, head right, and
        follow the path taking out the Demon Knights and the Tile
        Generators. Strike at the farthest boulder to reveal a red
        switch which of course you must step on (this is getting rather
        repetitive). Back to the 3-way intersection, and this time head
        up the left pathway and find a RAPID FIRE in a corner, then
        continue up the screen taking out more enemies. You will soon
        find yourself on a narrow pathway, which you must follow all
        the way around, taking out any Demon Knights in your way until
        you reach an open area. In here, there is a TIME STOP and a red
        switch, which you must step on, causing a nearby platform to
        rise up. I really hope you're following me up to this point.
        Cross over this, and you will notice a platform still in the
        lava. Keep this in mind as you will be coming back here. From
        here, continue heading up the screen, taking out more Demon
        Knights and Red Gremlins, and at the end of this path is a
        boulder in the corner. Strike at that to reveal a red switch,
        which you must step on. Now backtrack to the area before, and
        you will notice the platform has no risen up. Cross over that,
        and head up the screen a bit and you will be at a 3-way
        intersection. Now at this point, there will be multiple ways to
        take to get to the goal, but of course I will only take you the
        best way to get through, outside of that you're on your own.

        So with that, from here head right and follow the pathway,
        taking out Demon Knights and Zombie Villagers until you get to
        another 3-way intersection. Ignore the red switch you might see
        (which will lead to a 3-WAY SHOT by backtracking if you step on
        it), and continue forward and you will see a boulder in the
        middle. Strike at it to reveal a red switch, which you must
        step on. Now from this 3-way intersection, head up the screen
        and continue onwards, taking out Demon Knights, and you will
        then see another red switch. Step on that, and another platform
        will rise up. Cross over that, and you will see a closed gate
        on the left. Keep this mind as you will come back to it. Keep
        going forward to find FIRE BREATH on the right side, then after
        that, you will see Red Gremlins and Demon Knights, so take them
        out as well as their generators. Keep heading up the screen and
        you will find a boulder in the middle of the area. Strike at
        the to reveal a red switch, which you must step on. After that,
        head back to the closed gate which you will see is now opened,
        so go through it to find a Lava Golem. Take that out, and
        strike at the small square boulder behind it which will reveal
        a red switch. Step on that and head up the screen a bit more
        and take out the Demon Knights, and go to the left corner. A
        red switch will be available so step on that then head to the
        right corner to find another one. Step on that red switch and
        the middle gate will open revealing the GOAL GATE. Step on that
        and you will be taken to the final boss battle with Skorne!

         ----------------------------------
     2. |World Of Skorne - Skorne (Gate#02)|
         ----------------------------------

        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Soul Savior (from Battle Towers)

        Here we go, the final battle! This fight is setup the same as
        the last battle with Skorne, only he's alot faster this time.
        His attacks are shooting fireballs at you, which can be
        avoided, as well as causing the earth to shake (with his hands)
        which is unavoidable. Here's what you should do, first off, use
        any Thunder Hammers you have which will knock some life down.
        Next run back and forth and use the special items you received
        after the first battle with Skorne (though use the long-ranged
        items). This will do some good damage to him. Finally, use the
        3-Way Shot/Rapid Fire combo, which will finish him off
        completely. If all that of that don't help, then he should have
        1/8 of life left, so simply keep attacking. With all of that,
        you will be able to defeat Skorne for the last time!

        And with Skorne defeated for the time being, you have completed
        this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        And with Skorne finally defeated, the realms are safe once
        again. So sit back and watch the credits roll by! Now, you
        would think that this would end the game, but guess what,
        you're still not done yet! When you start up the game again
        under your saved file, you will have unlocked a new region I
        call the Extra Region. This is comprised of 4 more challenging
        levels. Complete them and you will have fully completed the
        game! So with that, head over to the Extra Region and step on
        the first Stage Gate to begin the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

     that you entered the bowels of the underworld and emerged
     victorious."

         -----------------------------------
     1. |Level 1: Mountain Summit (Extra#01)|
         -----------------------------------

        ITEMS: Rapid Fire, 3-Way Shot, Magic Potion, Thunder Hammer,
               Speed Shoes, 700 Gold, Fire Shield, Fire Amulet, 3 Keys,
        ENEMIES: Green Trolls, Suicide Trolls, Bomebr Trolls,
                 Archer Trolls, Red Scorpions, Purple Scorpions,
                 Tree Golem

        You are now in the Mountain Summit, which is gonna be a lengthy
        mountain hike. At the starting point, you will be instantly
        greeted by Green Trolls, Purple Scorpions and a Suicide Troll.
        Also here is a RAPID FIRE (in the chest), so deal with all of
        this and head up the screen following the pathway. Continue
        following the pathway taking out more Green Trolls, as well as
        Red Scorpions, Bomber Trolls and a Suicide Troll. Take all of
        that out, and head down the other hill to find a Tree Golem.
        This might take a bit to handle, so be careful. After taking
        that out, take out the Red Scoprions, Green Trolls and their
        generators and an Archer Troll, then continue along the pathway
        down the hill. More Green Trolls and Red Scorpions will be down
        here, so start taking them out as well. Now at the bottom of
        the hill, there is SPEED SHOES in near a locked gate. Now at
        this point, there is two different paths you can take, both
        leading to the same spot. I will take you down the path that
        has the most items on it. So with that, from the Speed Shoes,
        head to the left side of the screen and follow that pathway
        down the hill. In this next open area, there are Green Trolls
        and a Tree Golem, so take them all out. Also here is GOLD and
        GREEN GOLD, as well as a red switch, which you must step on.

        If you strike at the far left wall (between the generators),
        you'll find a KEY. After that, head down the screen through the
        newly opened gate and down the hill and begin disposing of the
        Red Scoprions and Green Trolls and their generators. Continue
        down the hill, taking out Archer Trolls and Tree Golem. Once
        you make it to the bottom of the hill, Bomber Troll and Green
        Trolls are here, as well as a 3-WAY SHOT (in the chest) and a
        red switch, which you must step on. After that, continue along
        the pathway, taking out more Green Trolls and Red Scorpions and
        go through the newly opened gate and down the hill. At the
        bottom, you will encounter Red Scorpions, Green Trolls and an
        Archer Troll in this area. Items here are founded on the
        leftside, which is GOLD, MAGIC POTION and 2 KEYS (in the left
        wall near the chests) and a red switch, which you must step on.
        After that, head down the screen and through the opened gate
        and you will hear a Suicide Troll so take that out and the
        other enemies and follow the pathway down the hill and you will
        be in an open area, which has more of the same enemies as
        before as well as an Archer Troll. Now if you took the other
        pathway (which has a 3-WAY SHOT, FIRE SHIELD and FIRE AMULET
        along it), this is where you would have ended up.

        So with that, head down the screen taking out a Tree Golem and
        follow the pathway ahead of you. More Red Scorpions and Green
        Trolls are here, so take them out. Follow the pathway until you
        reach the stone bridge. Now you can cross the bridge or go
        forward (which will take you around the river), it don't
        matter. Bomber Trolls, Suicide Trolls, Tree Golems and Green
        Trolls will be here so dispose of them all. At the otherside of
        the bridge, head down the screen and follow that pathway taking
        out more Green Trolls, Red Scorpions and Suicide Trolls. Now
        after that, simply head up the hill take out the same enemies
        then head to the otherside. Go up this hill, all four kinds of
        Trolls here as well as a Tree Golem. Come down the screen then
        go up the next hill which has Red Scorpions and Green Trolls.
        Head across this path then up the next hill (this is getting
        stale) which has Suicide Trolls, Green Trolls and Tree Golem.
        After that, head across this pathway then up another hill,
        which has Green Trolls, Bomber Trolls and Red Scorpions. Cross
        this path, up another hill which has Archer Trolls, Green
        Trolls and a Tree Golem. Now follow this pathway and you will
        find a THUNDER HAMMER and the GOAL GATE. Get the item and step
        on the gate and you will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Extra Region and step on the
        next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -----------------------------------
     2. |Level 2: Castle Barracks (Extra#02)|
         -----------------------------------

        ITEMS: Food, Fire Breath, 3 Magic Potions, 5 Keys, 400 Gold,
               Death, Fire Amulet, Secret Stage #06
        ENEMIES: Purple Rats, Armored Guards, Brown Rats, Golem Guards,
                 Archer Guard

        You are now in the Castle Barracks, which is a rather short
        level. At the starting point, you will be greeted by Armored
        Guards and Purple Rats, so take them out and the Doorway
        Generators. Also here is FOOD (in the chest) and a KEY, plus if
        you strike at the wall behind a generator, you will find SECRET
        STAGE #06. After that, head down the pathway, taking out DEATH
        and Brown Rats and follow it to the staircase (and take out the
        Haystack Generator). From there, head down the left staircase
        and get the MAGIC POTION and step on the red switch you see.
        Now head back and go down the right staircase. Down here you
        will see barrels, which has a KEY and MAGIC POTION. Get those
        and the other KEY you see, and head up the screen through the
        newly opened gate. Once through there, get the KEY in the
        corner and then head down the screen following the line of
        Armored Guards. Once you make it to the Doorway Generator,
        follow the narrow pathway where Purple Rats are coming from
        (watch out for the rising spikes). Soon you will come to a FIRE
        BREATH so get that and just past that is a red switch, which
        you must step on. After that, head up the screen a bit to find
        a newly opened gate.

        Now just left of this is a FIRE AMULET and GOLD, but inside the
        opened gate is a red switch, which you must step on. Now leave
        here, and then head right along the wall to where the bunkbeds
        are. From there, head down the screen, following the narrow
        pathway and you will go through another opened gate. Once past
        that, get the KEY and head up the staircase, taking out Armored
        Guards and Brown Rats as you do. Follow the pathway until you
        reach the next staircase and go down it. More Armored Guards
        and Brown Rats will be here, so be ready From here, if you go
        left, you will find a MAGIC POTION, but your main objective is
        to go right, where you will find GOLD. After that, go through
        the narrow opening and you will see Armored Guards coming out.
        Follow the line of them and you will also see DEATH. Take that
        out and step on the red switch it is guarding. Use your Special
        Attack to take out the Archer Guard and Armored Guards if you
        want, then head back down the screen to the opened area. Once
        here, head right and through the newly opened gate, taking out
        Purple Rats, Brown Rats, Armored Guards and a Tree Golem.

        After that, head up the screen through here, where you will
        find more Armroed Guards and a Doorway Generator. Now at this
        point you will notice there is a pathway on either side. It
        don't matter which way you take as they both are short and
        leads to the same spot. No items are down these small paths and
        the only enemies here are Armored Guards, so take either one
        you want. As you do, you will notice a small hill, which leads
        to an Archer Guard and GOLD. After that, continue up the
        screen, following the pathway to an open area, taking out more
        Archer Guards. In the open area, there is a Tree Golem, Purple
        Rats and Armrored Guards. Now in the upper right corner (beside
        the catapult) is GOLD, and it would look like there is more
        stuff on the otherside of the river, but there is no way to
        cross over. So with that, head left along the river and up the
        hill and you will have found the GOAL GATE. Step on that and
        you will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Extra Region and step on the
        next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         --------------------------------
     3. |Level 3: Desert Tombs (Extra#03)|
         --------------------------------

        ITEMS: Phoenix Familar, Halo, 2 Poisons, 1,000 Gold, 12 Keys,
               Death, 3 Rapid Fires, Acid Breath, 5 Foods, 3-Way Shot,
               4 Magic Potions, 2 Fire Amulets, Fire Shield,
               Thunder Hammer, Electric Shield
        ENEMIES: Purple Rats, Mummy Corpses, Brown Rats, Golem Guards,
                 Archer Mummies, Suicide Mummies, Bomber Mummies,
                 Cobra Snakes

        You are now in Desert Tombs, and unlike the last level, this
        one is rather lengthy which includes lots of backtracking.
        Right at the starting point, you will hear a Suicide Mummy come
        to you, so take it out. Now walk up the screen a bit, to find
        Mummy Corpses. Take them out and head left and follow the
        pathway to find a red switch, which you must step on. Now head
        around this area to the otherside and follow the pathway
        through a newly opened wall. Follow this pathway to the end, to
        find Cobra Snakes, Mummy Corpses and a KEY. Do what you must
        and then go through the nearby locked gate, where you will hear
        a Suicide Mummy. This is good size area that is enclosed, so
        just wander around in here to collect 7 GOLDS and a RAPID FIRE.
        Also, note the chests in here are designed differently, so be
        aware of that. Enemies here are Mummy Corpses as well as Tomb
        Generators, and there is also a red switch in a corner which
        you must step on. Now head back through the locked gate, go
        back towards the starting point, and once there, head up the
        screen through another newly opened wall. Now this next area is
        rather large and can be confusing to explain, so I'll do my
        best for you. Head up the screen and you will find Archer
        Mummies and Bomber Mummies, so take them out. From there, if
        you go right you will find a locked gate which has a FIRE
        AMULET in it.

        Instead though, you want to go left and continue going directly
        and you will find another Archer Mummy and Mummy Corpses. Take
        them out and right next to the Tomb Generator is a red switch,
        which you must step on. Now from there, head up the screen and
        ignore the locked gate as you can easily go around it. Infact,
        go around the nearby pillar, to find more Mummy Corpses and a
        Bomber Mummy as well as a Suicide Mummy. Near there is a KEY
        and GOLD, so get those, and continue following the path around
        the pillar, taking out more Mummy Corpse, Cobra Snakes and a
        Bomber Mummy, and continue heading up the screen. You will then
        see a locked gate, which has a FIRE AMULET inside of it. Get
        that, then head right, continuing on the pathway, taking out
        more Cobra Snakes and their Vase Generator. Also there is a
        FOOD nearby and just behind that is a ramp, which you must go
        up. Follow the short pathway to the end to find a red switch,
        which you must step on. After that, head back down the ramp and
        at this 4-way intersection, head right and take out the Mummy
        Corpses and get the KEY and FIRE SHIELD as well as step on the
        red switch. Now back to the 4-way intersection and head up the
        screen to the next 4-way intersection. Here you will find a
        RAPID FIRE and an Archer Mummy. You will now notice the camera
        angle changing, so your directions will change.

        With that, head down the screen from here, down the ramp and
        right next to the ramp is an opened gate and a small room. I'll
        get to that in a  moment, but first, in this large enclosed
        area, you will have Mummy Corpses and Cobra Snakes for enemies
        an FOOD, and ACID BREATH for items, so take care of that. Now
        for the small room, by going in it, you will find INVISIBILITY
        and a red switch which you must step on. Now here's something
        rather unusual. As you walk around this room, you will notice
        the dotted energy streams start circuling upwards as if you are
        standing on a Goal Gate. Believe it or not, this is a Goal
        Gate, but it will take you to the very first level (Mountain
        Valley). Why this is, I have absolutely no clue, however you do
        not have to complete Mountain Valley to complete this level
        (unless you want to). So with that, head back up the ramp to
        the 4-way intersection. Once back here, head left and follow
        that through another opened wall and down the ramp. In this
        area, by heading down the screen you will find FOOD in a corner
        as well as Mummy Corpses. Going up the screen however, you will
        find more Mummy Corpses, but you will also find FOOD, a KEY,
        MAGIC POTION and POISON. Also you will notice a small pillar in
        the middle of the room. Strike at that to reveal a red switch,
        which you will step on.

        Now after that, head back up the ramp and to the 4-way
        intersection, and this time head up through the newly opened
        gate. As you make your way down this ramp, Cobra Snakes and
        Mummy Corpse will greet you, so take them out. Also you will
        see a KEY and there is another KEY just to the right of the
        ramp (tucked away). After that, head up the screen and you will
        see a PHOENIX FAMILAR and a red switch, but to get to it, you
        must walk into the pit while coming up the screen (you'll
        figure it out). Step on the red switch and get the item, then
        continue up the screen to the back wall. From there, head left
        and you will see a ramp which you must go up. At the top is
        Cobra Snakes so take them out and their generator. Also here is
        an ELECTRIC SHIELD (in the chest), a KEY and GOLD as well as a
        red switch which you must step on. Now head back down the ramp
        and cross over this area to the otherside and go through the
        narrow opening. Once through here, there is a KEY in the
        corner, so get that and continue onwards down this pathway
        taking out Cobra Snakes and Mummy Corpses. You will see a
        locked gate, but ignore that for the moment and just go left,
        where you will find a KEY (tucked away behind a wall), GOLD and
        a red switch which you must step on. Now after that, head back
        to the locked gate and go through it.

        Now follow the pathway, avoiding the rising flames, and collect
        the KEY and MAGIC POTION. From there, head up the tiny ramp
        (between the poles) and DEATH will come out. Now you are at a
        3-way intersection, and it won't matter which pathway you take
        as you will end up at the same place. So with that, let's just
        take the right pathway, and by doing so, take out the Mummy
        Corpses you see and follow the pathway. As you do, you will
        find a KEY and MAGIC POTION (in the chest). Across from that is
        a locked gate which has a 3-WAY SHOT in it. After that,
        continue onwards with the pathway, and you will be at another
        3-way intersection, which is where you would have ended up at
        had you taken the other pathway (which has a  HALO along it).
        Now from here, head right and follow the pathway, getting the
        KEY and taking out more Mummy Corpses and Cobra Snakes as well
        as their generators. Soon you will come to a locked gate, which
        you must go through. Once through it, continue onwards, taking
        out more Mummy Corpses. You will then find a GOAL GATE between
        two walls, and tucked away on the right side is a THUNDER
        HAMMER (in the chest). Get that, then step on the gate and you
        will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Extra Region and step on the
        next Stage Gate as we move onto the next level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         ----------------------------------
     4. |Level 4: Forest Village (Extra#04)|
         ----------------------------------

        ITEMS: Phoenix Familar, 1,000 Gold, 7 Keys, 7 Foods,
               Acid Breath, 3 Magic Potions, Death, Invisibility,
               3-Way Shot
        ENEMIES: Demon Trees, Suicide Demons, Bomber Demons,
                 Archer Demons, Large Spiders

        You are now in Forest Village, which is a decent size levels
        with multiple pathways. So at the starting point, Demon Trees
        will come out, so take them out and their Treestump Generator.
        Get the GOLD and head down the screen, following the pathway
        taking out Large Spiders (and their Burronw Generator) to the
        3-way intersection. Once there, a Bomber Demon will be waiting,
        so take it out. Going down the left pathway will get you FOOD
        and a PHOENIX FAMILIAR (step on the red switch), but your main
        goal is to go up the right pathway. Follow it and you will be
        in a small area, which has GOLD down a small ramp. Large
        Spiders and Tree Demons will also be here, so begin taking them
        out then follow the pathway around the pit. Once you do that,
        you will be at a 3-way intersection. Now this is where things
        are interesting, there are many ways to get to where you are
        going, but I will take you through the quick route. From the
        3-way intersection, head down the right pathway and follow it,
        collecting GOLD, and continue onwards to the next 3-way
        intersection. Here will be a KEY, as well as Demon Trees and a
        Suicide Demon.

        Take them out and continue down the right pathway, past the
        next 3-way intersection, but stopping at the one just past that
        as this where you would have ended up at, had you taken the
        other pathways. Now had you done that, items you would have
        found would be 2 MAGIC POTIONS, 3 FOODS, GOLD, DEATH, ACID
        BREATH and 2 KEYS, as well as all sorts of enemies. So with
        that, from the 3-way intersection, head up the screen to the
        next 3-way intersection. DEATH is here, so take it out, and get
        the KEY and if you want, through the locked gate is FOOD. Now
        continue along the pathway taking out more Demon Trees and
        Large Spiders as well as their generators. Soon you will come
        to a small 3-way intersection, which in this case it won't
        matter which way you take. One path has a MAGIC POTION while
        the other has a KEY, so get those. Once at the otherside,
        simply follow the pathway taking out Demon Trees and you will
        come to a somewhat large area. Here will be Demon Trees and
        Large Spiders, so take them all out. Items here would be a
        3-WAY SHOT (in the chest). Head further up the screen in this
        area and tucked away in the back, which are 2 GOLDS,
        INVISIBILITY and a KEY as well as an Archer Demon.

        Now see the big leaf across from this somewhat large area, well
        you can walk onto it and there is something well underneath it,
        but no way to it *shrugs*. Anyways, continue following the
        pathway up the screen, taking out more Demon Trees. In this
        next area where the rising flame is, you will notice a wall,
        well go around it to find GOLD and you can continue onwards
        from there. FOOD (in the chest) will also be along the wall, so
        get that as well. Just after that, you will come to a 3-way
        intersection, which has an Archer Demon. Now if you continue up
        the screen, you will find the GOAL GATE. But if you want, you
        can also follow the path behind the Archer Demon. Doing so will
        lead to a KEY, and a lift which will take you to a lower area.
        Down here will be FOOD and 2 GOLD, so make your way around down
        there getting those, and taking out Demon Trees and Large
        Spiders and a Bomber Demon. It looks like there could be more
        down here, but I don't know. After that, head up to the Goal
        Gate, get the GOLD, take out Demon Trees and step on it, which
        you will have completed this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, head back to the Extra Castle Barracks
        (Stage 2) and make your way to the Secret Stage entrance.
        Stand on it, and get ready for a fun secret stage!

        ---------------------------------------------------------------
        ---------------------------------------------------------------

         -----------------------------
     5: |Extra Secret Stage (Extra#05)|
         -----------------------------

        ITEMS: 11 Notes
        ENEMIES: None

        Now for a secret stage, this one is extremely simple, short and
        kinda fun. For starters, you are in the main Midway's Office,
        you know, the creators of the game. As you make your way around
        here, you will see their pictures hanging up, and skeletons in
        their chairs (they won't hurt) The only items in this stage are
        11 NOTES scattered throughout this stage. Each one will tell
        you the names of a different creator, and what part of the game
        they had a hand in. Now there are many ways to get through
        here, but when getting all the Notes, from the starting point,
        head down the left path and in each office has a Note. As you
        follow the path, you will eventually come to a 3-way
        intersection, which you need to take the right pathway (as the
        camera angle switched) and continue onward getting the
        remaining Notes. You will notice a shiny disco ball, but it
        don't do anything. After getting the last Note, you will see
        the GOAL GATE, which stepping on it will complete this level.

        ---------------------------------------------------------------

        On the Tower Map, you should have completed all the levels, if
        not you have two more remaining. Other than that, there's
        really nothing left for you to do except run around different
        levels maxing out your stats to Level 99. When you do that, you
        will receive 1,000 Thunder Hammers (what a treat!), and you
        will offically become a legend! But I guess with everything
        done, you have now beaten the game. What a long and exciting
        ride it was, huh? Well, nothing else left to say except
        congradulations on completeing Gauntlet Legends for the
        PlayStation!

SECTION 4: |IMPORTANT STUFF|
            ---------------

      ------------------------
  A: |Items & Usage (Stuff#01)|
      ------------------------

     This is a list of all the non-buyable items in the game:

         1. GOLD: Usually found either in the open or in chests or
            barrels. Collect these to earn 100 Gold for each pickup.
            Gold with green in them (or Green Gold) will earn you 500

     Please note that there are three types of usage: Time, Vary, Uses.

        1. Time means that once you use the item, how long you use it
           will count down like a timer. Example: When using Time Stop,
           it will last for 15 to 30 seconds depending on how much you
           have.

        2. Vary means that when you use the item, it varies on how much
           of that item is used. Food however, there are two kinds,
           which will refill different amounts of health depending the
           food you get.

        3. Uses means that you can use the item for however many of the
           item you have. Example: 3-Way Shot can be used 30 to 90
           times. Keys however can only be used on chests and doors.

      -----------------
  C: |Bosses (Stuff#03)|
      -----------------

     This is a list of all the bosses in the game. It's best to have
     the respective Special Item when facing each boss:

        BOSS #01: DRAGON
        LOCATION: Mountain Region
        ITEMS: 3-Way Shot, Food
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Ice Axe (Found in Castle Treasury)

           Time to slay the dragon! This fight will actually be rather
           tough, mostly because the Dragon has an attack which when he
           stomps, he will send out a shockwave that is unavoidable and
           will do some major damage to you. His other attacks involves
           breathing out a few streams of fire back and forth, which
           you can avoid. Another attack which you must completely
           avoid is if you get too close, he will swipe at you with his
           claw which will be next to instant death for you. There will
           also be some rising fires here to provide as an extra
           obsticle. Items here are FOOD (under the bosses right paw)
           and a 3-WAY SHOT. What you need to do, is get halfway up the
           screen, but don't get any closer than that, and start
           unleashing your Thunder Hammer on him, which will take his
           life down alot. If you run out of that, stand back and use
           your 3-Way Shot and Rapid Fire Combo on him which will
           finish him off. This will take some persistance, but you
           will win!

        BOSS #02: CHIMERA
        LOCATION: Castle Region
        ITEMS: Food, Speed Shoes
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Scimitar (Found in Mountain Cavern)

           This boss fight won't be as bad as the Dragon fight. Chimera
           has three heads, a lion, bird and serpent (I think?). They
           will all breath fire at the same time, which could be a
           problem, but avoid this by running from one side to another.
           If you get close, he will shake the ground, but it won't be
           that bad of an affect. Items include FOOD and SPEED SHOES
           hidden behind the giant rocks close to the boss. Your
           strategy, start in one corner and start attacking him. When
           he uses his triple fire blast, quickly run to the other
           corner and keep attacking as you're running. Be careful not
           to run along the back wall as you can get slowed down back
           there by continously running in the wall, which will leave
           you opened for an attack. Again, Rapid Fire/3-Way Shot combo
           will come in handy, as well as the Speed Shoes. After enough
           planning though, you will be able to defeat this boss.

        BOSS #03: PLAGUE FIELD
        LOCATION: Town Region
        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Javelin (Found in Ice Fissure)

           This one is rather simple to defeat. What you see is a giant
           slime monster with horns. He will just wobble around in his
           slime pit. His attacks include shooting poisonous gas blasts
           at you, as well as a slow moving stream of poisonous gas.
           Also he will breed out small little slime leeches which is
           used as a distraction. These buggers won't really hurt you,
           so no worries there. Infact the bosses gas will take them
           out too. Your strategy, start in one corner, start attacking
           him, and when he uses his attack, head over to the otherside
           and continue attacking. Now if you're feeling brave, you can
           get up close and start using a variety of items on him
           (Acid, Fire and Electric Breath is good as well as Thunder
           Hammer), just avoid the attacks. Whichever strategy you
           used, just know, this will be an extremely easy fight, so
           soon you should be able to defeat him.

        BOSS #04: YETI
        LOCATION: Ice Region
        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Scroll (Found in Town Venomous Spire)

           Get ready for the giant abominale snowman! This fight is
           just like the Dragon fight, only you're a bit stronger to
           take the attacks so he's a bit easier to deal with than the
           Dragon. There are no items here, so don't worry about
           finding any. The Yeti's attacks are shooting out streams of
           ice breah as well as powerful shockwaves which can't be
           avoided. He will also try to swipe down on you which will
           cause some massive damage to you. What should you do, well,
           run back and forth, dodging the ice breath, but make sure
           you get as far away from the Yeti as possible (preferably
           run along the lower part of your screen). When you get an
           opening, use up all your Thunder Hammers, then use your
           3-Way Shot/Rapid Fire combo, which will do some massive
           damage to him. With the right strategy, you will have
           defeated this boss.

        BOSS #05: SKORNE
        LOCATION: Desecrated Temple
        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Soul Savior (Found in Battle Towers)

           Here we go, the fight with Skorne, and he's rather tough.
           Skorne will rise up and instantly begin his assault on you.
           His attacks include pounding the ground causing it to shake,
           and breathing either a single fireball or a stream of
           fireballs at you. Getting too close to him will result in
           him strike at you, causing some serious damage to you. Now
           you have a huge disadvantage here which is you don't have
           much room to fight in. If you have alot of health, like over
           7,000 you should be able to handle this fight. If so, simply
           stand where you are, and start using the 3-Way Shot/Rapid
           Fire combo. This combo will take his health down very
           quickly (in about 30 seconds actually). That should do it,
           but if not, he should have a very tiny bit of health left
           that you should be able to take him down easily. Witht he
           right strategy, Skorne will be defeated!

        BOSS #06: REMATCH WITH SKORNE
        LOCATION: Gates Of The Underworld
        ITEMS: None
        SPECIAL ITEM NEEDED: Soul Savior (Found in Battle Towers)

           Here we go, the final battle! This fight is setup the same
           as the last battle with Skorne, only he's alot faster this
           time. His attacks are shooting fireballs at you, which can
           be avoided, as well as causing the earth to shake (with his
           hands) which is unavoidable. Here's what you should do,
           first off, use any Thunder Hammers you have which will knock
           some life down. Next run back and forth and use the special
           items you received after the first battle with Skorne
           (though use the long-ranged items). This will do some good
           damage to him. Finally, use the 3-Way Shot/Rapid Fire combo,
           which will finish him off completely. If all that of that
           don't help, then he should have 1/8 of life left, so simply
           keep attacking. With all of that, you will be able to defeat
           Skorne for the last time!

     With a game as big as this, who knows what else is to come. But I
     will keep this open if anything new develops.

  B: |PayPal Donations|
      ----------------

     Like anyone would read this but something new I've been toying
     around with is the idea of taking donations. After making as many
     maps and FAQs as I have, it tends to be a big strain on my
     computer (I have a cheap-ass computer). So if you like any or all
     of my FAQs and maps, and wish to give a little something back, you
     can donate as much as you want to my PayPal account ^_^. Email me
     your donations at StarFighters76@comcast.net

  D: |Final Words|
      -----------

     When playing various games, I came across Gauntlet Legends,
     which I've played before many years ago and beaten it and Dark
     Legacy. Gotta say, the game is fun, with plenty of secrets hidden
     amongst it which is a definite plus for me. Originally I was gonna
     make four individual walkthroughs while making maps. But I
     thought, why not go all the way and make a complete walkthrough
     for it. Surprisingly it only took 1 1/2 months to make it and
     maps, which is pretty good seeing as I was afraid I was gonna give
     up on this a week after starting, so this one meant alot to me. I
     hope this walkthrough helps you out in any way possible.

     Ok, I'll make this quick and simple. This walkthrough is my work.
     This FAQ can only be hosted by GameFAQs.com, GameSpot.com, IGN.com
     and Neoseeker.com. Anyone else, well guess it will have to depend
     on my mood. You can use whatever info you want, so long as you
     give me credit and don't alter anything. I perfer you to email me
     at StarFighters76@hotmail.com if you're gonna do anything with
     this walkthrough. Failure to comply with this, and I will be mad,
     among other things. ;-). If you have questions, comments, or see
     something I may of missed, email me at StarFighters76@hotmail.com
     and tell me what it is. I will give you full credit for doing so.
     Not much left to say, except, thanks for using my walkthrough! ^_^
