Disclaimer ============================================================================== ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. I n t r o d u c t i o n ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ============================================================================== I learned about this game by coincidence on a board that had nothing to do with the game, and being an avid platformer fan, I checked up the game and instantly knew that I was going to buy it, even before knowing that its price was so cheap. Well, it turned out that this game was well worth the money I spent for it, and although it's a fairly short game, it can be challenging and above all, it's a fun game like I haven't played in a while. To think I could have missed this great platformer if I hasn't been on that board on that day.. Few people knows about this game, but if you enjoy platformers, I urge you to try out this game, and I hope my walkthrough will help you complete it.

W a l k t h r o u g h ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ============================================================================== * Note that the Checklists are only checklists, so avoid using them to find your missing gems unless you know what you're looking for. Use the levels' walkthrough for finding the Crystal Gems as the checklists are not accurate or the checklists along with the walkthrough. LEVEL 1 ------------- *********** a) Chimerum ****************************************************** ------------- From the starting point, go straight and jump on the vine. While on it, jump to avoid the spikes. Then, keep going straight and jump over the stepy stones to reach the other side. Don't take too much time as they fall after a while. Go on until you reach a low cliff. Climb it up, then jump on the green pad on the ground and you'll notice that some purple plants around will open, revealing items. After jumping on the green pad, hurry to the left before the plants close and quickly grab your first CRYSTAL GEM (1/10) in the plant at the left. Then, keep climbing up and kill the enemy here. Go right and grab your second CRYSTAL GEM (2/10). Then, go down and jump on the stepy stones to reach the other side. Don't forget to grab the CRYSTAL GEM (3/10) at the right. Go straight and you'll meet Leon. Then, jump on the vine and you'll see another vine at the left. Switch to this one and you'll land on a small cliff with a CRYSTAL GEM (4/10). Go back on the vine and stay on it until the end. Then, use the double jump to jump on the platforms and reach the other side. Break the cocoons at the right to find a CRYSTAL GEM (5/10). Keep going and you'll see a flying lizard. After talking to Leon, jump on the vine behind to reach the next area. Go straight and double jump to reach the top. Jump on the other vine here to reach yet another area. Keep climbing up until you reach the top. Once you've reached the top, after double jumping over the large gap at the end, turn around to see a CRYSTAL GEM (6/10) floating in the air. Use the double jump to reach it. Carry on and jump on the vine at the end to reach the next area. Exit the cave to end up in a more open area. Start by going left and climb to the top of the cliff. Jump on the green pad here to open the purple plants and quickly go back down the cliff before the plants close. Hurry to the plant with the CRYSTAL GEM (7/10) and grab it. Then, go straight and jump on one of the moving platforms. Try jumping on the one with the stepy stones next to it so you can use them to reach the large platform in the center of the moving ones. There's a CRYSTAL GEM (8/10) on it. Then, jump back on the moving platform and jump to the area with a cave when you pass next to it. At the end of the cave is another CRYSTAL GEM (9/10). Go back on the moving platformers and jump to the area on the other side. Climb up to the area above and defeat all the enemies that show up. Then, go on and enter the cave. Defeat all the enemies on the other side. Now, carry on and go left to see stepy stones by the wall at the left. Jump on them to reach the small area on the other side and defeat the enemy here. Then, break the cocoon in the center to collect the last CRYSTAL GEM (10/10). Then, go back to the previous area and climb up the cliff to find the EGG and teleport back to Leon. Talk to Leon and visit the shop to buy upgrades with the Klokkies you collected, then leave the level and enter the next one on the world map. CHECKLIST ========== Crystal Gem 1: Inside a plant a little further after the start. Crystal Gem 2: In plain view after the first one. Crystal Gem 3: Over one of the stepy stones a little further. Crystal Gem 4: On a cliff if you switch vines when you ride the first one. Crystal Gem 5: After the first vine, inside a cocoon at the right. Crystal Gem 6: After the second vine near Leon, climb up to the top and turn around after jumping over the gap to see it floating in the air. Crystal Gem 7: After the cave, go left and press the pad at the top to open the plants, one contains it. Crystal Gem 8: On the large platform in the center of the moving ones. Crystal Gem 9: At the end of the cave. Crystal Gem 10: Before climbing up to the Egg at the end, go left and jump on the stepy stones to reach another area with a cocoon containing it. LEVEL 2 ------------ *********** b) Bakuldo ******************************************************* ------------ At the start, go in the left path and jump on the vine. Try to collect static electricity while you're on the vine so you can charge up a bomb. When you see the spikes on the vine, jump over them and grab the first CRYSTAL GEM (1/10) in the air. Then, when you get off the vine, you'll see a metallic shell nearby. Blow it open using the Electric Bomb attack for the second CRYSTAL GEM (2/10). Then, go back to the start and go in the right path and jump on the vine at the right to enter the Bakuldan territory. Avoid the obstacles on the vine to reach it. Here, kill your first Bakuldan. You'll need to kill eight. Go on and defeat the second Bakuldan a little further on. Continue and defeat the two other Bakuldans here. Jump up and kill the fifth one. Then, enter the cave and go left for the sixth Bakuldan. There should be a metallic shell here, also. Break it open using the Electric Bomb attack or come back here when you have the Bakuldan transformation and throw a bomb on it to find a CRYSTAL GEM (3/10) inside. Then, go a little further into the cave for the seventh Bakuldan. Then, go to the end of the cave and kill the last one. You can now transform into a Bakuldan. First thing, spot the worm nearby and throw a bomb at its mouth while in your Bakuldan form. Blow it up to reveal an alcove behind with a CRYSTAL GEM (4/10) inside. Then, go right and you'll see a force field blocking your way. Place down a bomb next to the emitter to blow it up and bring down the force field. Then stand in the blue teleporter to be brought back at the entrance. Go in the right path again and transform into a Bakuldan. Throw a bomb into the hole in the boulder blocking the way straight ahead to blow it up and clear the path. Go straight ahead and keep going straight until you reach another force field. Take it down by blowing up the emitter, then turn back into Scaler and jump on the cliff above. Go straight and you'll come to a higher cliff. Transform into the Bakuldan and throw a bomb in the flower bulb nearby, then jump on the pad to go up to the top of the cliff. Carry on and defeat all the enemies ahead. Then you'll see another force field. Put down a bomb between the two emitters to blow both of them and the force field will go down. Jump on the stepy stones at the left to reach another force field. Put down a bomb between the two emitters to take down the force field. Continue straight and break the metallic shell here with a bomb to find a CRYSTAL GEM (5/10) inside. Then, blow up the boulder here too by throwing a bomb in the hole. Enter the cave and jump down to the next boulder. Blow it up, then go outside and jump on the stones to reach the other side. Blow up the boulder here too and go in the cave. Defeat the enemies here, then blow up the other boulder blocking the way and go out of the cave. Go straight and defeat the enemies to get a CRYSTAL GEM (6/10). Continue straight and traverse the cave. Outside, go down and throw a bomb in the flower bulb, then jump on the pad to go up to the top of the cliff. Defeat the enemies here, then use the other flower to reach the cliff above. Enter the cave here and blow up the explosive mushrooms in your way with bombs. Cross the ledge to reach the other side and jump on the vine. You'll land in another cave. Go to the end of the cave and blow up the boulder in your way, then go out to find a force field. Put down a bomb between the six emitters and wait until it explodes to take down the force field. Go straight and defeat all the small enemies. Then, you'll face a Dragon War Beast. Avoid his first attack, then when he uses his punch attack, jump to avoid it and hit him while his fist is stuck in the ground. Repeat the process until he's defeated and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (7/10) at the end of the fight. Then, blow up the boulder ahead and go outside. Jump on the platforms to reach the other side and go straight ahead for the EGG at the end. Back at the entrance, go in the right path again and this time, jump on the left vine. Once on the ground, climb up the path to the top. Once there, before going on the next path, jump on the small cliff at the left of the path behind you to find a metallic shell. Break it open with a Bakudan bomb and you'll find a CRYSTAL GEM (8/10) inside. Then, climb down the next path. Defeat the enemies at the bottom of the path and start climbing up the next path ahead. Avoid the slimes and once you reach the end, throw a Bakudan bomb in the worm's mouth to blow it up and reveal a CRYSTAL GEM (9/10) in the alcove behind. Then, climb to the top using the double jump and go on the path with the slimes. At the end, defeat the enemy and grab the last CRYSTAL GEM (10/10). Then, double jump to reach the platform with the EGG. Talk to Leon and exit the level. Enter the next one on the world map. CHECKLIST ========== Crystal Gem 1: On the vine at the left of the start. Crystal Gem 2: In the shell at the left of the start. Crystal Gem 3: In a shell near the loop vine inside the cave in the Bakudan territory. Crystal Gem 4: At the end of the cave in an alcove behind the worm. Crystal Gem 5: In a shell after a force field in Bakudan territory. Crystal Gem 6: Defeat all the enemies after one of the caves to get it. Crystal Gem 7: Defeat the Dragon War Beat to get it. Crystal Gem 8: After climbing up the first wall, look for a cliff at the top with a shell containing it. Crystal Gem 9: After climbing down the path with the slimes, defeat the worm to reveal an alcove behind with it inside. Crystal Gem 10: Near one of the eggs at the end of the level. BOSS ---------------- *********** c) Iguana King *************************************************** ---------------- For the first boss of the game, you'll need to transform into your Bakuldan form. First, you'll need to bring down the force field around Iguana King. Put down a bomb near one of the emitters and hit it to make it explode (Bakuldans don't take damage from the bombs they set). Then, put down a bomb next to the second emitter and make it explode to take down the force field. Then, throw bombs at Iguana King during that time and avoid his earthquake attacks. Now there are four emitters. You'll have to blow up all emitters pretty fast or they will keep on reappearing. Either place a bomb near each and hit it to make it explode quicker or try to have the enemies hit the bomb to make it explode. Either way you choose, quickly set the bombs and blow up all the emitters to take down the force field. This time, Iguana King will chase you around. Try to stay away from him and throw him bomb when you have the chance. The force field will then be back and the emitters are now scattered around the area making it trickier to take down the force field. Plus, Iguana King will attack with his earthquake attacks and the small enemies will also come after you. Do the same as you did previously, put down a bomb near each emitter and let the earthquake or small enemies hit it to make it explode faster. Blow up all the emitter to bring down the force field and throw bombs at Iguana King until he is defeated. LEVEL 3 ------------ *********** d) Klonium ******************************************************* ------------ At the start of this level, go straight and jump over the stepy stones, then go left to the area below and kill all the spiders. Then, jump on the green pad on the ground and run to the last purple plant before it closes and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (1/10) inside. Then, go up and defeat all the enemies here. You'll need to take down five Krocks total in this level before gaining the new transformation. After defeating the two Krocks here, continue and jump on the other green pad here to open the plants and grab the CRSTAL GEM (2/10) inside the plant at the left. Then, climb up the wall and go to the far right. Jump on the green pad here to open the purple plants and quickly run to the far left to grab the CRYSTAL GEM (3/10) inside the plant before it closes. If you have difficulty getting to it in time, come back here later when you have the Krock transformation and roll to the plant instead. Then, enter the cave ahead and jump on the floating platform, then on the platform in the center and defeat all the enemies. Leave the cave then and go straight. Jump on the spinning platforms to cross to the other side. Keep going on and you'll come across two more Krocks. Defeat them, then go on and jump on the stepy stones and platforms to reach the other side. You'll need to fight the last Krock here. You can now transform into a Krock. Go straight and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (4/10). Then, get in the slide in your Krock form and jump over the gaps until you reach the end. You'll end up in a Cannon Flower. Launch yourself on the island at the right. Then, go in the slide here and press the turbo button to go up (check options - controls in the menu), then jump over the gap and you'll land in a new area. Here, go in the tunnel at the left and avoid the holes. Jump over the gap at the end and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (5/10) at the left of the slide. Then, go in the slide to reach the next area. Here, climb up the wall in your normal form to reach the top and go at the end of the passage. Jump on the vine here to the next area. Jump on the stepy stones to reach the other side and go straight, then right to see a metallic shell. Use an Electric Bomb to blow it open (you get Electric Bombs from the static electricity you gather while on vines) to reveal a CRYSTAL GEM (6/10) inside. Then, go up and in the slide. Use the turbo button and the jump button to leap over the gaps and at the end you'll find an EGG. Back at the start of the level, go back to the Cannon Flower and this time, launch yourself on the island at the left. There's a CRYSTAL GEM (7/10) right here. Then, go in the slide to reach the next area. Here, go in the Cannon Flower at the right. You'll need to pass through the doors under the time limit. Then, go in the other Cannon Flower and do the same as before, only now the path is longer and harder. At the end of the path, jump on the cliff above and press the green pad on the ground to open the purple plants. Backtrack and follow the trail of lianas on the ground until you reach the last plant and quickly grab the CRYSTAL GEM (8/10) inside the plant before it closes. Then, go back to the end and jump on the vine to reach the next area. Here, jump in the Cannon Flower. While in the course, the path will split in three ways near the end. Go in the path of mud at the right of the main path and at the end you'll find a CRYSTAL GEM (9/10). Then, get back on the main path and reach the end before the timer hits zero. At the end, break the metallic shell with an Electric Bomb and grab the last CRYSTAL GEM (10/10) inside, then pick up the EGG. CHECKLIST ========== Crystal Gem 1: In a purple plant near the start. Crystal Gem 2: In another purple plant a little further on. Crystal Gem 3: In yet another purple plant after climbing up the wall. Use the Krock form to reach it. Crystal Gem 4: After getting the Krock transformation, in plain view. Crystal Gem 5: After the tunnel, at the left of the slide. Crystal Gem 6: In a shell before the last slide before the Egg. Crystal Gem 7: On the left island after using the first Cannon Flower. Crystal Gem 8: In the third timed course, in a purple plant if you backtrack. Crystal Gem 9: Near the end of the last timed course, in a small mud path at the right of the main path. Crystal Gem 10: At the end of the track, in a shell next to the Egg. LEVEL 4 ---------- *********** e) Altus ********************************************************* ---------- First, talk to Leon and go in the shop to buy the Camouflage. Now, jump on the vine nearby and jump over the obstacles until you reach the end. Then, transform into the Bakudan and kill the huge enemy. Then go straight and jump on the green pad to make platforms appear. Jump on the platforms to reach the other side and go straight. Kill the enemies here, then jump on the other platforms to reach the other side. Use the Bakudan to defeat the big enemy here, then go straight and jump on the green pad to make new platforms appear. Now, turn around and backtrack a bit to see other platforms that weren't there before. Jump on them to reach a small area with a force field. Use the double jump to land on a small area at the right with the emitter. There's also a metallic shell here, so throw a bomb at it to blow it up and reveal a CRYSTAL GEM (1/10). Then, blow up the emitter to bring down the force field. Go back in the area where the force field was and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (2/10) in the shell behind. Go back to the previous area where you pressed the green pad and jump on the platforms that appeared at the right. Reach the top platform to collect a CRSYTAL GEM (3/10). Then, jump to the next area. Use the double jump to reach the low cliff above and climb up the wall. Defeat all the enemies in the next area and put down a bomb near one of the emitters to blow it up. Then quickly do the same with the two other emitters to bring down the force field. Now that the force field is down, go on and press the green pad to make other platforms appear at the left. Jump on these platforms to reach the next area and defeat all the enemies here. Then, press the green pad to make platforms appear again. Reach the other side and grab the EGG. Back at the entrance, go straight and use the camouflage ability to sneak past the Trapper. Jump on the vine to reach the next area. As soon as you land in this new area, transform into the Bakudan and drop down below. Throw a bomb at the wall on your left to blow it up, revealing an alcove behind with a CRYSTAL GEM (4/10) in. Then, follow the path and defeat the enemies along the way, while using your camouflage ability to sneak past the Trappers. At the end of the path, transform into the Bakudan and throw a bomb at the wall blocking your way to blow it up. Use the camouflage again to sneak past the Trapper and continue straight ahead. Defeat the enemies here with bombs and throw a bomb in the worm's mouth at the right to blow it up and reveal a passage leading to a CRYSTAL GEM (5/10). Then turn back and go straight. Jump on the vine to reach the next area. Here, use the camouflage to reach the next safe spot of ground. Transform into the Bakudan and throw a bomb at the right to hit the metallic shell in the corner at the right. Use the camouflage to go and get the CRSYTAL GEM (6/10) after blowing up the shell. Go back to the safe spot and throw a bomb at the left to blow up the rock wall blocking the way. Use the camouflage to cross to the other side now that the wall's gone. Defeat the enemy here with the Bakudan, then throw a bomb at the rock wall straight ahead to reveal a secret alcove behind. Jump inside and throw a bomb at the shell to get a CRYSTAL GEM (7/10). Go back outside and throw a bomb to the wall at the right (left if you're coming from the alcove) to reveal a new area behind. Use the camouflage to reach the safe spot, then throw a Bakudan bomb at the enemy on your left and use the camouflage to reach the spot where that enemy was. Throw a bomb at the metallic shell in the corner and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (8/10). Then, go back to the previous spot and throw a bomb in the worm's mouth in front of you to blow it up. Go through where the worm was to access a new area. Go straight and jump on the cliff, then press the pad to make platforms appear on both sides. Jump on the platforms at the right and reach the top one with a CRYSTAL GEM (9/10) on. Jump to the next area below and climb to the top of the cliff. Jump on the vine here and you'll land in a cave. Go in the passage at the left and go left again to find a shell. Blow it up with a bomb and grab the last CRYSTAL GEM (10/10). Then, go to the end of the cave and jump on the vine to reach the next area. Jump down in the cave below and defeat the enemy here. Then double jump to reach the ledge above to end up outside. Press the green pad here, defeat the enemy and go straight ahead. Jump on the platforms to reach the top area. Go on the vine and get past the obstacles to finally reach the EGG. CHECKLIST ========== Crystal Gem 1: Use the platforms to reach a distant area with a shell containing it. Crystal Gem 2: Take down the force field on that distant area to get it inside a shell behind the force field. Crystal Gem 3: On top of a group of platforms. Crystal Gem 4: Blow up the wall on your left after the first vine to find it. Crystal Gem 5: Throw a bomb in the worm's mouth to find it behind. Crystal Gem 6: In the area with many Trappers, in the shell in the right corner at the end. Crystal Gem 7: After the area with many Trappers, blow up the wall straight ahead to find it in a shell behind. Crystal Gem 8: Throw a bomb at the enemy on your left before the second worm to find a shell behind him that contains it. Crystal Gem 9: When you make two rows of platforms appear, go on the ones at the right to find it. Crystal Gem 10: In the cave, go left and blow up the shell. BOSS ---------------------- *********** f) Looger's Henchmen ********************************************* ---------------------- When the fight starts, jump over the platforms at the right until you reach a large platform. You'll need to fight Jazz. She will slide once, then stop, so use that opportunity to hit her. Then, she'll start sliding twice in a row before stopping, and three times at the end. Be careful and avoid her, then attack her until she is defeated. Then, you'll need to cross to the next large platform while the dragon shoots ice at you, so be quick and use double jumps to jump from a platform to the other. You'll then need to fight Rhombus. He'll jump and try to crush you, but you can easily avoid his attacks by running away and jumping to avoid the wave. Then, attack him after his attack. Sometimes he'll jump twice in a row so be careful. Hit him until he is defeated. Then, jump on the platforms at the right to reach the last large one. You'll fight Turbine here. The dragon will also attack you while Turbine does, so you'll need to be extra careful. Avoid the dragon's shots, then avoid Turbine's poison breath by trying to stay behind him so very far from him. When he stops, attack him. Repeat until he is defeated.

LEVEL 6 ------------ *********** h) Koradus ******************************************************* ------------ At the start of this level, go straight and jump over the platforms until you reach the other side. Here, you'll see spiked cocoons, so use the camouflage ability to sneak past them. Then, go in the mud at the right still with the camouflage ability to reach the first CRYSTAL GEM (1/10). Then, go straight ahead and down to the area below. At the bottom, go right and jump on the vine. In the next area, go straight and jump over the spiked cocoons at the right of the boulder at the end to find a metallic shell. Blow it open with an Electric Bomb to find a CRYSTAL GEM (2/10) inside. Then, jump down in the area below at the right and cross to the other side of the mud using the camouflage or jump on the higher area at the right and then to the other side. Jump down below again and cross the other muddy area by jumping over the rocks. Reach the other side and double jump to the cliff above, then jump on the vine here. In the next area, climb up the path and avoid the slimes. Then, at the bottom of the path, jump to the next path to climb it up. You'll arrive in a new area. Go straight ahead and drop down on the lower ground to find a CRYSTAL GEM (3/10). Then, go back up and you'll notice that there are two paths you can take to reach the next area. Go in any of the two as they lead to the same place. Once in the next area, continue on the next path. At the end of the path you'll find an EGG. Back at the entrance, go straight again until you reach the spiked cocoons. From there, use the camouflage to get past them and head left. Jump on the vine here to reach a new area. Once there, go straight ahead and jump over the stepy stones until you reach a cave. Enter it and go straight to find a CRYSTAL GEM (4/10) in the middle. Then, go to the end of that section of the cave, killing the many enemies along the way. Then, go left to access a different section of the cave. Keep going further into the cave until you reach another section of the cave where the ground is green. Here, kill the Dragon Warrior, then jump on the pad nearby and run back to the first plant near the entrance of this section by following the liana on the ground. Quickly grab the CRYSTAL GEM (5/10) in the plant before it closes. Now, go back to the end of the cave and climb up to reach the outside area. Jump on the higher ground over the mud to avoid the Trappers and then jump down to the ground below, in the corner of this area to find a CRYSTAL GEM (6/10). Then, climb to the top of the cliff and defeat all the enemies here. Jump on the vine then to reach the next area. In this area, break the metallic shell with an Electric Bomb to get a CRYSTAL GEM (7/10). Then, jump on the vine to reach yet another area, and jump on the vine here too to reach the last area. Once in this last area, you'll notice that there are 2 paths you can take, but first, go to the very far right of this area and look in the corner at the edge to find a metallic shell. Break it open for a CRYSTAL GEM (8/10). Then, climb up the path nearby at the left, which leads to the top of this area where a metallic shell is. Break it open for another CRYSTAL GEM (9/10). Jump on the vine here to go back down to the area below. This time, go left in the small cave and climb up the path here. At the top, go straight ahead and defeat all the enemies to make a CRYSTAL GEM (10/10) appear. Pick it up, then grab the EGG nearby.

BOSS --------------------- *********** i) Giant Rattlecrab ********************************************** --------------------- For this battle, you will be on the Repbaldactile. First, you will need to shoot the Rattlecrab's claws. When he's about to attack you with one of his claws, shoot it repetitively until you hurt him. That way you will be able to avoid his attack. Repeat this process several times with each of his claws until he decides to change his method of attacking. You will now need to shoot the four yellow dots on his head until you destroy them all. However, this time he will send missile enemies at you, so you will need to destroy these enemies before shooting the yellow dots. Shoot down the enemies and as soon as you have the time, try shooting the dots, or try to do both at the same time. Once you destroy the four dots, the Rattlecrab will try a new way to take you down. This time, he will try to use a radar on his head to shoot you down. Start by shooting the radar first, then shoot repetitively in his mouth. If you destroy the radar, you will prevent him from attacking you. Repeat the process, shoot the radar, then his mouth until Rattlecrab is destroyed. Phew. LEVEL 7 ------------- *********** j) Medoozum ****************************************************** ------------- When you start this level, go down and hit the platform activator to make some platforms appear. Jump on them until you reach a new area. Here, defeat all the enemies, then hit the platform activator and use the platforms to reach the next area. Jump on the moving platforms here to reach yet another area. Keep jumping on the other platforms in this area to reach the next again, then defeat the Zarpac in this area and go right to hit the platform activator. Jump on the platforms to reach another area and defeat all the enemies here. Hit the platform activator in this area and jump on the platforms until you are on a spinning platform. From this platform should be two other platforms leading two different ways. Jump on the beige platform at the right and it'll bring you to a new area. Here, go straight and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (1/10) behind the fake surprise cocoons. Then, go back on the beige platform to return on the spinning platform, and this time, jump on the purple platform and keep jumping on the next ones until you reach the next area. Defeat all the enemies here, then hit the platform activator and jump on the platforms until you reach the next area. There should be a metallic shell here, but you'll get it shortly. Jump on the vine here and when the vine splits in two ways, jump on the vine at the left to reach an area with a shell. Break it open with an Electric Bomb to get a CRYSTAL GEM (2/10). Then, jump back on the vine and you'll end up in the area you were previously where the other shell is. Break it open for another CRYSTAL GEM (3/10). Jump back on the vine here and when the vine splits, stay on the right one to reach a new area. Here you'll need to fight the Doozum. When he throws a big fiery rock, hit it with your tongue in the Doozum's direction to hurt him. Avoid all of his other attacks and repeat the process until you defeat him to get the Doozum transformation. From where you are currently, drop down to the area just below the one you are in and you'll find a shell. Break it open to get a CRYSTAL GEM (4/10). Then, transform into the Doozum and fly to the area just below the one you are in right now to find another CRYSTAL GEM (5/10) among some Klokkies. Then, still in your Doozum form, fly around this area until you spot some blue enemies shooting at you nearby. Shoot them all and a CRYSTAL GEM (6/10) will appear where they were. Pick it up.

Use the Quick Turn for some of the hard passages and at the end you will get the EGG for this level. The three last Crystal Gems can be found around the level. Find and kill the three huge flying beasts around the level and you will receive a CRYSTAL GEM (8/10). Then, fly to the very far right end of the level (use the map to go there) and you will spot other blue flying enemies among some big floating rocks (near the blue portal). Shoot them all and a CRYSTAL GEM (9/10) will appear. The last one is hard to locate, fly to the bottom left corner of the level (use the map once again) near the starting area of the level and land on a land with many Ratos, on the other side of a barrier.

LEVEL 8 ------------ *********** k) Iridium ******************************************************* ------------ At the start, take the path going left and use the camouflage to sneak by the spiked cocoons. At the very end of this path, jump on the vine to reach a new area. Here, go straight ahead and climb up the path to reach another area. Once there, go left to find a CRYSTAL GEM (1/10) at the end of the path. Go back from where you came and go straight, following the trail of Klokkies. On the way you'll encounter your first Fruzard. Defeat him, then keep going until you need to fight the second and third Fruzards. Continue jumping from platform to platform until you are on one with a shell. Break it open with an Electric Bomb, but watch out for the cactus. Inside is a CRYSTAL GEM (2/10). Keep going and jump on the large platform with the fourth Fruzard on at the right. Defeat him and the fifth Fruzard also. Then, go back to the previous area and keep going on until you need to fight the sixth Fruzard. Then, climb up the path nearby to reach the next area. Keep going further into the path until your way is blocked by cactus. Use the camouflage to sneak past them and go down the narrow path. Defeat the seventh Fruzard here. Then, jump down to the area below. Jump on the sinking platforms to reach the other side and defeat two more Fruzards here. Keep going and climb up the path to the next area where you will need to fight two more Fruzards. Continue in the same way and climb up the path again to another area. Jump on the pillars here to reach the top area and defeat the last Fruzard here. You can now transform into a Fruzard. Go in the blue warp to teleport back to the entrance area. Back at the entrance, take the path going right and shoot the lamp-like plant at the end of this path to get a CRYSTAL GEM (3/10) out of it. jump on the platform at the left, then on the vine. When the vine splits in two ways, stay on the vine, don't switch and it will bring you to the EGG at the end. Then come back here and look in the air to see some dragons. Transform into the Fruzard and shoot down all those dragons using the sniper mode. Then, jump down on the platform below with the Klokkies. Shoot down all the other dragons that will appear and jump on the last platform. The path will stop there but you'll see a trail of Klokkies leading to an unreachable portal on the other side. Enter the sniper mode and shoot the yellow target in the air to make platforms appear. Jump on these platforms to reach the other side and go through the portal for a challenge. *Balloon Challenge* Shoot the balloon to keep it airborne! Target Time 23 seconds. For this challenge, all you have to do is keep shooting the balloon so it doesn't fall during 23 seconds. Just don't shoot it like mad and you will get it. You will receive a CRYSTAL GEM (4/10) for this challenge. Then, go back to the entrance of the level. This time, go in the left path and further in that same path, shoot the lamp plant near the Dragon Warrior to get another CRYSTAL GEM (5/10). Then, look in the air where the Dragon Warrior was using the sniper mode and shoot the yellow targets to make platforms appear. Jump on them to reach a portal on the other side. Go through it for another challenge. *Griffon Challenge* Shoot the Griffons before they reach you! Target Time 1 minute. This challenge can be hard. Shoot down all the dragons before they reach you until the timer hits zero. You will receive a CRYSTAL GEM (6/10) for it. Then, cross back to the other side where the Dragon Warrior was and jump on the vine at the end of the path. Right after getting off the vine, don't move, simply turn around and enter the sniper mode. Look in the air behind you (where the vine is) and you'll see some floating balloons. Shoot them all as one of them contains a CRYSTAL GEM (7/10). There's another Crystal Gem in a balloon in this level and as it's near this area, we'll go get it now. Simply go straight ahead and climb up the path to be back in the area where you fought the Fruzards. Go where you fought the second Fruzard (near an area with 2 health units) and look in the air with the sniper mode to see floating balloons. Shoot them as one of them contains a CRYSTAL GEM (8/10). Now, go back to the previous area after the first vine where you shot the first floating balloon and this time, transform into the Fruzard and enter the sniper mode. Look in the air above the path at the left to see some enemies throwing boulders. Shoot them to take them down. Then, you can safely cross the path to reach the next area. Here, jump on the sinking platforms to cross, then shoot the dragon in the air and go to the end of the path while shooting the dragons along the way. At the end of tshe path, shoot the yellow targets in the air at the left and platforms will appear. Use them to reach the other side, then go on and shoot the enemies along the way, and at the end, shoot the yellow targets here too to make platforms appear again. Jump on them to reach the other side and go through the portal for another challenge. *Cave Challenge* Snipe 10 targets within time limit! Target Time 30 seconds.

BOSS -------------------- *********** l) Bootcamp's Lair *********************************************** -------------------- This boss may seem hard, but he's pretty easy to defeat once you know how. He mainly has two attacks at the start of the fight, he'll either try to bite you (which you can avoid by jumping on the nearest vine) or try to blow you away. When he uses this attack, don't run away, simply stay on the platform and run forward to avoid being blown away. Once he's done attacking, transform into the Fruzard and shoot the boss' eyes. Repeat this process until he sinks down. He will then come back and start breathing fire at you, but never stop to try attacking him, keep jumping from vine to vine and eventually, your path will be blocked. Transform into a Fruzard again and enter the sniper mode. The boss will shoot two fireballs at you. Shoot both, then shoot his eyes. Repeat this process until he disappears again. He'll come back a last time and try to blow you away. Press forward to stay on the platform and once he stops attacking, shoot his eyes. Repeat until he's defeated. LEVEL 9 ------------ *********** m) Voidrem ******************************************************* ------------ Follow the path at the start and enter the cave. Break open the shell at the right with an Electric Bomb (there's a vine at the start if you need one) to get a CRYSTAL GEM (1/10). Then, fight the enemies in that cave and defeat the first Swoom. After this, climb up the cliff at the right and defeat the enemies here too to fight the second Swoom. Then, slide down the slope to end up in the next area. Here, use the camouflage to get past the Trapper, then go in the middle of the area and fight the enemies and the third Swoom. After the fight, you'll get a CRYSTAL GEM (2/10). Then, use the camouflage again and follow the trail of Klokkies to reach the other side of the area. Enter the cave here.

Then, look around this area to spot a CRYSTAL GEM (3/10) in the mud. Go get it using the camouflage. Then, use the camouflage again and follow the trail of Klokkies to reach the next area. Here, jump on the platforms over the mud and grab the CRYSTAL GEM (4/10) on one of them. Then keep jumping on the platforms until you reach an area where you'll need to fight more enemies and the two last Swooms. You can now transform into a Swoom. Jump into the water and you'll be back in the entrance area. First thing to do, swim around in the water until you spot a ring. Swim through it to start a challenge. Swim through all the rings that appear without missing a single one and you'll receive a CRYSTAL GEM (5/10). Then, go back to the surface and from the entrance, go straight ahead and enter the cave. This time, transform into the Swoom and jump in the water inside the cave. Swim straight ahead and you'll come to a gate. What you need to do in order to open that gate is to hit the three yellow switches nearby. Once it's open, go through and swim to the next area, avoiding the enemies and obstacles along the way. Hit the three yellow switches here too and the gate will open. Keep swimming straight ahead and you'll emerge in a larger area this time. Go back to the surface and jump on the platform in the center. Defeat all the enemies here to get a CRYSTAL GEM (6/10). Then, you'll need to find the three yellow switches around this area to open the next gate. There are all on the ground, so don't look underwater. The first one is on a platform with some fake cocoons. The second one is on a platform with Ratos, and for the third one, jump on the vine near the Ratos and you'll get to the third one. Once you've hit them all, go back underwater and through the passage where the gate was. You'll notice that the path splits in two here.

You'll have to find the three switches again. The two first switches are on small platforms in the corners of the area. For the third switch, jump on the platform with the Klokkies and climb to the top. Slide down the slope here and you'll find the third switch at the end. The gate will now open so go through to the next area. Go to the surface of the water and jump on the platform in the center. Follow the path and you'll come to a CRYSTAL GEM (10/10) in plain view. Then, climb up and jump on the vine. Defeat all the enemies in the next area, then climb to the top and grab the EGG. CHECKLIST ========== Crystal Gem 1: In a shell in the cave at the start.

BOSS ------------------------ *********** o) Looger's Stronghold ******************************************* ------------------------ Final boss. To beat him, you'll need to use Electric Bombs. First, he'll throw thunderbolts at you (you can predict this attack as he will raise his hands before using it), so run around the platform to avoid them until he stops. Then, watch the ground and you'll notice that one of the spots will start glowing. Run to it and stay on it to avoid Looger's attack. While you're standing on that spot, you will gather static electricity and you'll get an Electric Bomb when your bar is full. Once you have an Electric Bomb, go near Looger and use that bomb on him. You will need to repeat that process several times. He will also start to send electric waves at you, simply jump to avoid them while standing on the glowing spot to gather the static electricity. After a while, he will send Ratos to attack you, and also a Zarpac. Defeat all of them. Then, you'll notice that the four spots will be glowing. Don't go on any of them yet, wait until Looger finishes his attack (he'll throw purple orbs on the spots). After his attack, run to the spot without any orb and stand on it to fill your bar. Keep attacking Looger when you have Electric Bombs and eventually, he'll send a big enemy to attack you. The enemy will try to crush you with his head, but stand back from it and once his attack is over, hit him as much as you can. Repeat the process until you defeat him. Continue attacking Looger then until his life meter reaches zero. But it's not over yet. Looger will jump on the platform you are on and will try to hit you. Run around the platform to avoid his attacks, then stand on one of the spots and wait for him to attack you, but at the last second, get away and his punch should hit the spot you were on. It should now start glowing so quickly go on it to charge up your electricity bar. Repeat this process until you have an Electric Bomb and attack Looger with it. Then, Looger will return to his seat and continue to attack you with the same attacks as previously. Attack him again with Electric Bombs and he will come back on the platform with you. Repeat the same process as before but this time you will need to hit him twice. Finally, he'll go down. *** If you collected all 100 Crystal Gems, you will get the Alternate Ending. ============================================================================== ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 4. G a m e B a s i c s ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ============================================================================== ---------- *********** a) Story ********************************************************* ---------- Our world is only one small planet in a vast universe. Our universe is one speck within the "Multiverse". The portals that connect the planets are unstable -- they can spawn and die out in the blink of an eye. If anyone could stabilize and control these portals, he would wield immense power. In a freak accident, Leon, a brilliant scientist, in the process of developing just such a device, is sucked out of our world and into a bizarre dimension. There, the evil Looger and his cronies torture the scientist and steal this technology, perfecting it until it suits their own twisted purposes. They break into our world, but before they can complete their fiendish plans, they are discovered by Bobby "Scaler" Jenkins. They capture the boy and try to get him to talk, but he breaks free, and escapes through a portal into their world. --------------- *********** b) Characters **************************************************** --------------- Bobby "Scaler" Jenkins ----------------------- Bobby is an energetic boy whose quick wit is matched only by his swift reflexes. He loves skateboarding and lizards, not necessarily in that order, and will move Heaven and Earth to save his friends. Leon ----- This once heroic and brilliant scientist is now merely a surly survivor -- but he hasn't quite realized that yet. He befriends Bobby, and give the boy advice and guidance as he explores the strange world he's blundered into. Bootcamp --------- "Captain Bootcamp" is Looger's right hand lackery. He's taken on the persona of a drill sergeant in our world. He's really just a big lug, and Bobby's having none of his bullying tactics. Jazz ----- She's on Looger's team, too, but in our world, she's taken on the guise of a movie director. She is NOT one to be messed with, and Bobby has crossed the line! Rhombus -------- He's nabbed a job as a CEO in our world, but he is really another Looger compatriot. Hey, Rhombus! You're FIRED! Turbine -------- Turbine is Looger's "muscle" and is masquerading as a construction worker in our world. Scaler's too quick for this bad-breathed baddie! -------------------- *********** c) Transformations *********************************************** -------------------- Bakudan -------- Use his bomb rolling attack to takeout enemies from a safe distance and blast open barriers. Krock ------ Use his rolling spike attack to crush enemies and break through barriers. Doozum ------- Fly to new areas and takeout enemies with your sonar attack. Fruzard -------- Shoot nearby enemies with a scatter gun effect or take careful aim and shipe distant targets. Swoom ------ Swim to new areas and slam into enemies with your charge attack. ----------------- *********** d) Collectables ************************************************** ----------------- Klokkies --------- Collect these floating pollen particles, and Leon and his faithful Repbaldac- tile can help you convert them into new abilities and upgrades. Crystal Gems ------------- There are 100 Crystal Gems in the entire world (10 per level). Besides being worth 500 Klokkies each, collecting them all unlocks a super cheesy alternate ending, the kind that Hollywood would have given you! Have a good chuckle. Cocoons -------- Most can be easily broken and many contain a collectable. Cocoons should be approached with caution as some are traps or monsters. Shells ------- These are tough to break and require an Electric Bomb Attack or a Bakudan bomb to open. Shells usually contain a very valuable collectable. Vitaloids ---------- They help you recover your health when you're hurt. Lizard Eggs ------------ There are 20 Lizard Eggs in the entire world. The more eggs you collect, the more levels will become available to you. Collect all the eggs to keep Looger from mutating them into monsters. -------------- *********** e) Obstacles ***************************************************** -------------- Surprise Cocoons ----------------- Easy to break.
