"Found" is where it can be found, store or course. "Value" is my rating of the item. In other words how good it is. "Desc." is the item's description. ___EGGS___ Price: N/A Found: Course Only Value: Varies. W/ Louies Very Good. W/ Tirras Decent. Desc.: With Louies eggs give you a speed boost. With Tirras eggs make you temporarily invincable. ___ROCKET BOMB___ Price: ??? Found: Course and Shop Value: Great. Definitly a keeper. Desc.: This item is a heat seeking missle. The higher you charge it, the faster it will go. ___REMOTE CONTROL BOMB___ Price: ??? Found: Course and Shop Value: Decent, but not very practical. Desc.: When you lay this bomb you can set it off whenever you want. You can see it's location on the map for reference. It's is more or less useless in this game as there is no way to know that the enemy is close enough to the bomb when you set it off to do any damage. It's more luck then anything else. ___POWER BOMB___ Price: ??? Found: Course and Shop Value: Eh. It's better than nothing. Desc.: Because of the nature of the item More Items coming in next update. =================== B A D I T E M S =================== More Items coming in next update. ___ ___ / '-, ,-'-, ,-'-, ,-' \ ,###, -,-' \ / '-,- ,###, ,#####, \ / \ / ,#####, ####### '-,-' '-,-' ####### '#####' '#####' '###' '###' oooo oooo oo oo ooooo oooo ooooo oooo OOOOOO OOOOOO OO OO OOOOOO OO OO OOOOO OO OO OO OO OO OO OO OO OO OOOO OO OOOO OO OO OO OO OO OOOOOO OOOO OOOO OOOO OOOOOO OOOOOO OOOOOO OO OO OO OO OO OO OO OOOO OOOO OOOO OO OO OOOO OOOOO OOOO I have maps of some of the courses available for use. It may or may not be up on gamefaqs.com, but you should always be able to find it on my homepage at: http://www.technonet.com/~kmfdm/ NOTE: At this time I only have the map of Bomber Circut complete. The maps and strategies should apply to the Mirrored courses too, but I will have to make the ticket price + victory money list for them seperate. |--------------------------- | B O M B E R C I R C U T |--------------------------- |---( COURSE 1 )------------ Ticket Price: FREE 1st: 100 2nd: 70 3rd: 50 100 Coin Bonus: 300 This is the easiest course in the game. There is little variation to it, and no traps. Just make sure you keep ahead of the rest of the racers, and use the catapult on the wall near the end of the course. When playing the Bonus stage, go for time, not the Coin Bonus. You can make 800+ easy, but the coins only give you a measly 300. |--------------------------------------- | B O M B E R C O A S T E R L A K E |--------------------------------------- |---( COURSE 2 )------------------------ Ticket Price: 100 1st: 200 2nd: 80 3rd: 60 100 Coin Bonus: 500 Welcome to Bomber Coaster Lake! This is the first course to have jumps and various "traps". Like in Bomber Circut go for Time, not Coins, in the bonus round again. ------- [ Traps ] ------- Water - Certain stretches of this track are boarded by a cliff that drops off into water. Be careful when taking corners not to do something like jump off, or lose control and just ride off. :) Jumps - There are 2 jumps on this course you have to make. Both are identical and are the easiest jumps you can think of. Simply start running at full speed and jump just before you hit them. If you fall you land in water and get pulled out on the other side of the jump. ------------ [ Short Cuts ] ------------ There is one shortcut in this level. Make sure to get the catapult, then while zooming forward jump over the fountains and the railing onto the small strip of land, and run along it till you can jump off on to the main road. |------------------------------------------- | W A C A I S L A N D B E A C H S I D E |------------------------------------------- |---( COURSE 3 )---------------------------- Ticket Price: 400 1st: 300 2nd: 100 3rd: 70 100 Coin Bonus: 700 Waca Island can be a pain for some people, but incredibly easy for others. I dunno why. It's easy as hell for me, but both my brother and friend hate the level with a passion. My suggestion is use Tirras here so you have a little bit more control. Unless of course you wanna make one of the shortcuts(which isn't neccesary at all), then use a Louie. In this course, whether to go for time or coins in the bonus stage is a pure judgement call. Either way you get about the same. ------- [ Traps ] ------- Water - What is that poem? Water, water everywhere... uh, well thats really all of the poem that applies here. Being this is an island, there is lots of water, but the course is pretty easy so unless you mess up on taking a shortcut it shouldn't be a problem. ------------ [ Short Cuts ] ------------ This level has 2 shortcuts. Shortcut one is a cave behind some water roughly 1/3 of the way through the course. Shortcut number two involves Tri-Jumping between the pillars sticking out of the water just before the pirate ship. |------------------------------------- | B A K U Z A N S K I C O U R S E |------------------------------------- |---( COURSE 4 )---------------------- Ticket Price: 900 1st: 500 2nd: 200 3rd: 100 100 Coin Bonus: ?? I really suck at this level for some reason, so am not really sure what to say about it. I suggest use Louies though, so that you don't risk falling from the jumps, as they set you back substantially. ------- [ Traps ] ------- Ice - The ice makes you slide around near uncontrollably. Try to stay on the snow whenever possible, and make sure you don't slide off into the water. Water - Like many other courses there are some parts of this course that borders water, and combined with the ice this can be a pain. Jumps - Unlike the earlier jumps in Bomber Coast, these don't drop you in water, but in a stretch of course below. See the maps for more details. ------------ [ Short Cuts ] ------------ Well, I see the shortcut but I have no clue how to get to it. If you know, e-mail me at kmfdm@technonet.com. |------------------------- | S T A R E X P R E S S |------------------------- |---( COURSE 5 )---------- Ticket Price: 1500 1st: 1000 2nd: 300 3rd: 150 100 Coin Bonus: 2000 This level is really fun! Tons of traps, but they are all cool. Go for coins in this level's bonus stage. The 2000 gold far outweighs anything you can get from time bonuses. ------- [ Traps ] ------- Lightning - There are electrical currents flowing between some coils on the wall on one stretch. Simple enough to get by. Simply jump over the low ones, and run under the high ones. The Alien - Well, in one open corridor there is an alien obssessed with blasting you for no apparent reason. If you see he is going to be in your way, run along the left side as he almost never shoots anything that will hit you there. Just remember not to run into the wall at the end of the left side. :) It happens all the time... ------------ [ Short Cuts ] ------------ There is one shortcut in this level, at a point where a large loop starts, in the form of a small tunnel off to the side. Take the course slow once to find it, then use it from then on. |--------------------------- | D Y N A M O U N T A I N |--------------------------- |---( COURSE 6 )------------ Ticket Price: 3000 1st: 1500 2nd: 500 3rd: 200 100 Coin Bonus: 3000 This is my level of choice to earn cash. Easy to win with any of the later animals, and an easy 4500 each race. Just take both the shortcuts and learn not to fall off the sides and you will find this level to have a huge cash flow. Definitly go for the Coins in the Bonus Stage in this level. ------- [ Traps ] ------- Mines - The course's first sharp turn is loaded with mines. Either run through the clear path, or go around the side. Pit - Alongside the bridge after the Mine Turn there are pits on either side. Also, there is a pit inside the cavern/temple place immediatly after. Waterfall - Later in the course there is a waterfall, and if you aren't careful the current will drag you off. Simply dash through it, or stay on the 2 stone platforms in the center. Wind Bridge - After the stage's catapult there is a bridge, with wind blowing trying to knock you off. There really is little threat to being blown off for players with any experience. The bigger problem is when the wind pushes you over just enough you run into the wall and flatten yourself. ------------ [ Short Cuts ] ------------ Two shortcuts here. The first is when you enter the cavern near the beginning, run along the thin strip rather than going around. My suggestion is charge at full speed straight down it, and when it goes crooked just jump over the gap instead of trying to turn and risking falling. The other shortcut may not be considered one by some. At one point you have the choice of dropping into water, or jumping over it on to more ground. The player's natural inclination is to try to make the jump. My suggestion is fall down to the water, not jump over it, then use your Stamnia to run forward so you don't lose speed in the water. This can put you in first a lot of times! |--------------------------- | B O M B E R C A S T L E |--------------------------- |---( COURSE 7 )------------ Ticket Price: 4600 1st: 2500 2nd: 3rd: 100 Coin Bonus: 5000 Info coming in next update. ////// \\\\\\ ||||| M I R R O R E D C O U R S E S ||||| \\\\\\ ////// | Ticket | 1st | 2nd | 3rd | 100 C Bonus ------------------------------------------------ 1 | | | | | 2 | | | | | 3 | | | | | 4 | 9000 | 5000 | | | 5 | 12000 | 6000 | | | 6 | 14000 | 7000 | | | 7000 7 | 20000 | 10000 | | | ___ ___ / '-, ,-'-, ,-'-, ,-' \ ,###, -,-' \ / '-,- ,###, ,#####, \ / \ / ,#####, ####### '-,-' '-,-' ####### '#####' '#####' '###' '###' oooo oooo oooo ooooo oooo OOOOOO OOOOOO ooooo OOOOO OO OO OO OO OO oo oo OO OOOO OO OO OO oo oo OOOO OOOO OOOOOO OOOOOO ooooo OO OO OO OOOO OOOO oooo OOOOO OOOO Mirror Courses - Get 1st place in every one of the normal courses.
