Snowboard Kids 2 : by KMC 10:51 AM 6/30/99 A Rookie's Guide to Snowboard Kids 2(Although this guide is for veterans and pros too): feel free to copy any information from here for any purpose without my permission, just don't e-mail me for thank-yous,problems,things I missed or anything else that has to do with this FAQ, O.K? 1).Characters 2).Boards 3).Crazy Junge Boss 4).Jingle Town Boss 5).Ice Land Boss 6).Other Secrets 7).Thank-Yous 1).Characters: Note: If a character has a "*" next to his name, he/she/it is a secret character. I will tell you how to access them one at a time, or you can get them all, using the super cheat(see section 6). Slash Kamei: All around great boarder, I recommend you pick him if your a rookie snowboarder. Favorite Board:Balance Board Level 3 Speed:3 Turn:3 Trick:3 Jam Kuehemund: Another all around boarder. Unfortunately, Jam was'nt the trickster he used to be, he worked on his speed and lost some of his trick and turning abillity. Favorite Board:Balance Board Level 2 Speed:3 Turn:2 Trick:2 Linda Maltine: Second Best in Speed and Second worst in turning ability and trick abillity, That's Pretty much all I can say about her. Favorite Board: Trick board 2 Speed:4 Turn:2 Trick:2 Wendy: She's the direct opposite of Linda. Favorite Board: Speed Board 2 Speed: 2 Turn:4 Trick:4 Tommy Parsy: The fastest non-secret character. Favorite Board: Trick board 3 Speed:5 Turn:1 Trick:1 Nancy Neil: The best non-secret trickster and turner in the whole game. Favorite Board: Speed Board 3 Speed:1 Turn: 5 Trick: 5 Damien*: Beat every course in both the normal and expert modes(see section 6.) at least once to earn him. He's maxed out in all his stats. Favorite Board:Balance Board 2 (Though he uses the poverty board when you race him in Ice Land) Speed: 5.5 Turn: 5.5 Trick: 5.5 Coach*: Beat the Traning mode in 1st place to obtain him. He is an even better turner and trickster than Nancy. Favorite Board: Speed Board 3 Speed: 0.5 Turn: 5.5 Trick: 5.5 Mr.Dog*: Beat the Speed Cross to earn him. He's even faster than Tommy. He's my favorite when I arm him with the trick board 3 or the star board. Favorite Board:Trick Board 3/Star Board Speed:5.5 Turn:0.5 Trick:0.5 2)Boards: Note: Every Board (Exept the special boards) has 3 levels, the higher the level the faster the board. A) Trick Board: A.K.A. Freestyle. As the name suggests, it gives you extra agility and trick ability. The feather board is an improved version of the trick board, it's in the "Special" boards. B) Balance Board: A.K.A. All-Around. All stats in level 1 are almost equal. The Star Board is an Improved Version of the Balance board, it's in the "Special" boards. C) Speed Board: A.K.A Alpine. These are the only boards you can get in reverse. Turning and trick ability is horrible, on the flip side, these are the third fastest boards, third, only to the high-tech board and dragon board. The high-tech board is an advanced version of the Speed board, you'll find it in the "Special" boards. D)Special Boards: Note:I did'nt have the space to put all the special boards down, so i'll just tell you about some of my favorite special boards. Dragon board: The fastest board in the game, it also matches the feather board in trick power but has turning ability that matches the ice board. Charm Board: It does'nt de-activate ghosts, but the ghost's effect won't last nearly as long, it's stats are pretty average. Star Board: Has all the good qualities of all the level 3 "non-special" boards. Rich Board: It gives you 1G every fifth of a second if you race with this. Ninja board: Stupidly low speed,average turning power and average trick ability is just half of what you get for racing with this board, the other half,almost permanent invisibility and invulnerability. Poverty Board: Bad Stats, and bad special quality, you lose cash on this board, oh yeah, and this is the board Damien uses when you race him in ice land 1. Ice Board: Use Coach or Nancy with this board unless you want to lose! Boss Levels: 3)Crazy Jungle Boss: Best Character:Wendy/Nancy Best Board:Dragon Board He takes the lead in the first part, but don't complain,don't ram into any walls either.Use every power-up you can, try going for frying pans and ghosts rather than rockets or speed fans.If you got into the lead before the middle of the course, you'll have a pretty good chance of beating Mr."I'm jealous of Yoshi" to the finish line. If you beat him in the Expert mode(see section 6) then you will be able to buy the legendary Dragon Board,but you'll have to get quite a bit of dough from the normal mode. 4)Jingle town boss: Best Character:Tommy/Linda Best Board:Ninja Board This is the only course where top speed is merely a luxury, not a nessesity. With the Ninja board you earned from starlight highway on Expert mode(see section 6) Snowman robot's snowman and ice crystal attacks have almost no effect on you. Just time your blasts right and you'll beat him before the middle of the course.Beat this Snow-Monster in expert mode(see section 6) to get the fast-but hard to turn-Ice Board, What a waste of effort and gold! 5)Ice land Boss: Best Character:Tommy Best Board:Ninja Board I only beated Damien Robot once, but i do have a couple strategies. 1.Rather than "dumping" your bombs onto the course, time your attacks so that you "squish" nine of damien's energy points(indicated by his face) with one,two, or three bomb icons. 2.Get used to the back shot! You'll need it if you want to attack Damien while you're ahead of him. 3.Look like you've squashed Damien for good but....WHAT!?!? a second robot appears with 3 hit points, I guess you'll have to toss 3 more bombs to toast him.What a cheater!!! Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you just beat the game!!!!!!!!! but there is a lot more stuff to find, so keep snowboarding and have fun! 6)Other secrets: Track Favorites: Just like in Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer, there are track favorites for each track, but there can be more than one track favorite for one course.: Course: Course Favorite(s): Sunny Mountain Wendy,Slash,Tommy Turtle Island Jam,Linda Jingle Town Wendy,Slash,Linda Wendy's House Wendy,Tommy Linda's Castle Slash,Jam,Linda Crazy Jungle Tommy,Slash Super Cheat: To see the super cheat, go to game sages. 7)Thank-Yous I would like to thank Racdym,Atlus and Nintendo for making a game that sparked my interest in snowboarding games,GameSages for telling me about the super cheat,my Grandma for buying the game for me so I could study it full time,and myself for writing this FAQ.
