--------------------------Stages [stag]-------------------------------------

----------------Stage 1--------------------------
--------------Gorge of Athlecticism------------------------

Difficulty: Easy

Here you begin with four enemies after you use square to attack and kill them.
Or use X to use your gun, beware though you have limited ammo(unless you buy
the item in the shop) and item also breaks your combo. After those four enemies
you get four more one by one appearing. And to end the zone another three.

It begins with four enemies in a row. But you can find three more if you keep
moving right. Once they are killed go to the blue portal. And you'll be in the
next zone.

In this zone you will begin with three enemies all spread out. Simply kill them.
Then meet three more. As you are fighting them another three will appear at
the top of the screen. Now kill them and go to the blue portal.

Well done you are doing some good work. Meet for new enemies and give them a
good bye. Then three more appear. Wow these zones are quick now go to the
portal. Cross the bridge half way and four enemies surround you. Go one end
and kill them two enemies, then go to the other end and the other two.
After that three more appear and now you've finished the zone.

It's boss time.

If you got a rank of A or above you may choose you next stage.
However if you got a B or lower you will automatically be sent to stage 2a

---------BOSS------------

Difficulty: Easy

This guy is big and he has a club. My suggestion is make a combo on him, then
he'll fall over with no chance to hit you. After one or two combos three regular
enemies they are weak. Kill them and get back to the boss. His deadly attack is
whacking you with his club he swings it on the ground making a blue circle.
Now you have cleared the first stage.


-------------Stage 2a----------------

-------Pass of destiny [2a]-------

Rank requirement to play stage: None

Explore forward to find four enemies. Once they're killed eight more appear.
Go to the blue portal and in to the next zone. That was easy enough.

Go forward to find four enemies standing side by side, once they're killed three
more come. Then whilst you are fighting them another three drop and say hi.
Once they are finished you have cleared that zone. Go to the blue portal.

As soon as you are there, four baddies come to greet you. Move right to kill an
enemy which can be easily missed. After that carry on ahead to kill three more.
When go on ahead tow more baddies will get in your way. Now go to the portal.
Go right and let the first five of them appear and whist you are fighting them
four more will come. Go a little on ahead and kill the last two in the zone.
Now go to another portal.

Now you will see three baddies surrounding you kill them and move on.
Then three more are waiting for you around the bridge. Oh no ifm you
are on the bridge watch out there are five around you. Kill the bottom
side because there is only one. Then go and kill the last four.
Now time for the next zone. Go to that portal.

Now there's five on the left and another comes a second after with another two
waiting to come next then the last two. Now go ahead to the left and kill two
more. Go to the portal and find the boss.

-------------BOSS------------

Difficulty: Medium

When this boss doubles himself he is sending out an enemy kill the baddy and
go back to the boss. Make sure to avoid his fireballs they are quite strong.
So lay 1 or 2 combos on him and dodge his fireballs but running around him.
This way you chip off his HP and then you have completed the stage.

-------------Stage 2b---------------

------------Ruins of Bliss [2b]----------
Difficulty: They say hard but I say medium

You begin with a batch of five enemies to welcome you to this stage. KILL THEM!!
Whilst you are fighting them three more come one by one. Once they're dead three
more want to end the zone off.

Go a little forward to find a crowd of five baddies. Once they're dead they come
and appear then three stand in a single file line. Go to the portal.

On the right for come to say hi and whilst you are killing them four more come
even more right. Then another two join in the fun. Now you go to that blue
Portal.

Be prepared for a welcoming party of three there's three ahead as well. Right at
the end you will see four nasty things then three more whilst you are in the
fight. Now you can hit the portal.

Here you will see four enemies standing on the bridge they are blocking the way.
Across the bridge there are four waiting for you, with two more joining in.
Now end the zone. To the portal.

Now there is four standing in front of you deal with them, and meet their three
good friends. Now go to the portal. It's boss time. Exactly the same as 2a
and will be the same strategy.

 -------------BOSS------------

Difficulty: Medium

When this boss doubles himself he is sending out an enemy kill the baddy and
go back to the boss. Make sure to avoid his fireballs they are quite strong.
So lay 1 or 2 combos on him and dodge his fireballs but running around him.
This way you chip off his HP and then you have completed the stage.

-------------Stage 3-----------

-------Deadly heights [3]--------

Difficulty: Easy

Three enemies are there to kill then two more come.
Once they're out of the way move on forward to kill the last three
in the zone. You know where to go that blue portal.

Kill off the first two
then you can take on the next two down the right without any hassle. In the next
three there is a tougher one of the three. just hurt him some more.  Whilst your
busy killing them three more join in the party. Now that ends that zone.

Here four of them appear and they're all spread out. Then there's one hidden
on the left and two to the right. Go back to the centre to kill a regular and a
tough and end that zone. Hit the portal.

Here three are standing on the bridge, then another batch of three.
Then kill the last lonely guy at the end of the bridge and find the next zone.

Run to the end and kill one enemy who flies solo. Then meet three of his
friends. Go back and kill another five and end the zone.

Now it's time for a boss personally I don't like this one.

-----------------BOSS--------------

Difficulty: Hard

This one is good with plain old whacking but after a few hits he teleports.
My strategy is either gun him or make a combo on him and chase him. Do make sure
to dodge his combos though and beware of his tail they bite to. This boss may
serve you some damage so be careful once he's killed it's time for the
next stage.

Now here like stage 2 depending on your rank you can choose your next stage.
If you get and S you can choose for 4a, 4b or 4c. If you got an A you can choose
from either 4a or 4b and B or lower is automatically set on 4a.



--------------Stage 4a------------------
-----------Eternal slope [4a]--------------
Difficulty: Easy

Here relax with the beautiful music and get rid of the first three baddies.
Then end this quick zone with another four.

A zig zag line of four appear before your eyes. Get rid of them. Then a little
up on the hill there are three more with two joining in on each end of the
screen. While you are in that battle there is four more then you can enter the
portal.

Four are now spread across the hill. Next you can defeat another three.
Climb up a little and see another five. You have cleared the zone.

And five come in the next zone, once they're dead four more appear.
Up at the stairs there are three guarding it.

In these stairs ten are across the staircase. Now go to the boss.

            ------------BOSS--------------

Difficulty: Medium

This boss sends out magic bombs but they are harmless. Early in the
fight three baddies appear kill them and then kill the mean boss.
When he turns invisible watch out for the fire. If you are a little slow you may
see a batch of three enemies.


--------------Stage 4b-------------------

-----------Crimson Coast [4b]---------
Rank requirement to play stage: A

It begins with four lovely baddies standing on the sandy beach. Once they're
killed you face four more. Then go to the portal and see the next zone.

Here you will see four baddies side by side. Kill them one by one as you go
along. Then a batch of three come to keep you company. After that you meet
four of them. right at the end. I have to say though it suits the scenery I
love the sunset. And then they decided to through in one more to finish off
the zone.

By the seashore there are five more baddies to kill. Then another five not far
off. Once they're out of the way another three come. Right by the crimson sky
there are two red baddies to suit match the sky. Sadly we have to obliterate
them. That clears the zone.

In this zone it's getting to be dark to your left there are five enemies which
can easily swarm you. A little to the right there are two more to end the zone.

Right at the shore there are three destroy them and see the next five.
Go a little right to find another five. And annoyingly there is another five.
Whilst you are killing them another appears as well. Now you can end the zone
and fight a boss. This boss is the same as 4a

------------BOSS--------------

Difficulty: Medium

This boss sends out magic bombs but they are harmless. Early in the
fight three baddies appear kill them and then kill the mean boss.
When he turns invisible watch out for the fire. If you are a little slow you may
see a batch of three enemies.

--------------Stage 4c----------------

------------Forest of mist--------

Rank to play stage: S   [4c]
Difficulty: Hard

You will begin with a load of enemies surrounding you.
Kill them to get an easy high combo of 9. Enter the blue portal.

Move forward and you will see another four enemies kill them quickly!
The reason is 9 more appear in twos or threes until there are nine.
These enemies can drain your health easily so be careful.
Once you kill them another blue portal appears.

In this part you get four enemies appearing one by one it
isn't too bad though because two are up on a hill and can't harm you much
until you go near them, so kill the first two then the next two. You can
do this easily without losing much health. Move up the hill to find another
three enemies they are no trouble at all. Then move up a bit more and see
five more. They may hurt you a bit. Once you kill them go to the blue portal.

There you will meet three more enemies. Once they're killed three more pop up.
After them one alone comes and this keeps happening. When one is killed another
one comes at the other end of the screen. Finally a girl enemy comes with
another one of those same enemies. Then go to the next blue portal.
Now it's the boss.

------------BOSS--------------

Boss: 38 enemies
Difficulty: medium
Four enemies appear one by one to begin with, then another, shortly after
that every time you kill an enemy one appears until you have killed 38.
Not really an official boss but it is tricky. A tip keep your health high.

---------------Stage 5---------
Field of death  [5]
Difficulty: Medium

To begin five enemies suddenly appear. Next you get two sets of threes.
Then a set of four. Then go to the blue portal.

In this zone five enemies suddenly appear, you can kill these with ease.
Then seven more come one by one as you are fighting the others.
Then suddenly six appear. these six may drain some health.
You get three more to end the zone, then you can enter the blue portal.

Four enemies appear to begin with but these can be
killed with no trouble. Move right to find a batch of four baddies. They
Do not surround you. Next four more enemies appear one by one all spread out.
Now go to the next blue portal.

In this zone you will begin with four enemies
relatively close to each other. Then three more come out one by one as you're
fighting them. Now you get a lovely bundle of five all together. Swarm in and
kill them. Whilst you are fighting them three more appear. Aren't you lucky
after that there is a bundle of six, which almost surround you. Whatever you do
though do not use your gun. It will wreck your combo. Yes you made it to the
blue portal.

Here three enemies appear as soon as you arrive. Talk about a welcoming party.
Once they are killed you get five more to kill. Climb up the stairs to meet two
more. These ones however are tougher, but they can still be killed.
Once they are killed go to the portal to meet the boss.



----------------BOSS--------------

Difficulty: Hard

This boss is deadly. He has 6 swords and he can do rapid combos.
You should either consistently shot him within your gun, or make a combo
on him a run. Even when you do shoot him he'll guard after a few shots.
This boss has three bars of health so he may take a while. About half way
enemies begin to appear, but very few so just kill them and go back to the boss.
But when that happens the boss uses all six sword to make an attack where he
sends out a purple circle. It isn't that strong though. And sometimes he makes a
circle around him which spins. Make sure to stay away from him then. After that
just kill him.

----------------Stage 6--------------------

Castle of Death [6]

Difficulty: Easy

It begins with five enemies. They're facing the opposite direction so this is
a perfect opportunity for a back attack. Three more appear turned around.
Now the portal.

After that quick zone. go right a bit to see six enemies. They are standing in
a circle so it's not too hard. Then suddenly a warning comes up.
It's the boss off stage one. Lay a few combos and he'll fall over.
My strategy is to land as many combos as you can so he doesn't get a chance to
hit you. After he's killed you get another warning.

This time it's the boss from stage 2. Lay a combo the avoid he balls of fire.
He stretches out a long red thing. Whenever he does that dodge it.
Sometimes he triples himself, don't worry about it though all it means is
you have to kill two normal enemies. Once he is dead six enemies appear.
Once they are killed. You officially begin the stage.

You now begin on the roof of a building. With five enemies.
After that you will get fourteen enemies then go to the portal.

After another quick zone kill the beginning four enemies.
Wow that was quick go to the blue portal.

Go to the one enemy you see. Then when you are near him four appear
on the top of the roof.  Now that they have been killed you unlocked
another portal.

In this zone kill the first three enemies. Then go to the other side
of the roof to kill the next four enemies. As you've noticed these zones
are extremely quick now.

Here you have four enemies standing in a row. They'll love to surround you.
Well done you cleared another zone. Go to the portal.

Here five enemies appear to welcome you. Say hi by giving them a good slashing.
Then you get another six to slash. Two more appear straight after. this zone is
looking a lot longer. I was wrong you finished the zone.
Now it's the final boss. Get ready!!!!!!

--------------BOSS----------------

Difficulty: Ultra hard

This boss can dive, shoot fire and sometimes even turn the screen white. It is
almost impossible to avoid all of his attacks. My recommendation is use one
combo on him, then avoid all of his attacks because this boss will take a lot
of credits to defeat. Once he's killed you win.

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!
