An example of this is a lot of the quirky humor. Anyway, onto the main section. TOP SCREEN: On the top screen, the professor will be in his lab(ship), doing whatever, like going on his computer, reading a book, etc. Make sure you look up there occasionally, because he will occasionally mention some tips on where to go and the like. Also, for some boss fights, this screen will be involved. TOUCH SCREEN: This is where the real action goes on. On the top left is your health and technique gauge. Your technique gauge tells you how much EP you have. On the top-right is the decal icon. If you are using the stylus, tap that to go to the decal screen. HOW TO FIGHT: Really, really simple. Just go into battle mode, and stand close to your enemy and every couple seconds, he will attack. It sounds really easy right? Most of the time it is, but if your enemy attacks during yours, it can really screw up your whole fight. Personally, when this happens, I just run away (exit battle mode)for a few split seconds, then I come back. It can be really frustrating when on a boss when he/she interrupts your attack and you have trouble attacking. Also, to use items, go to the menu(X) and it is the second tab. ***IMPORTANT TIP***:If you even think you are in danger of dieing, use a recovery item immediately. The reason being you can only go to the menu when you can hit them. Example: I'm fighting enemy that does 18s. I have 30 hp left. It hits me down to 30 hp. This is the important part; it could score a critical 18, becoming a 36, thus killing me and sending me back to the ship, BUT, after he hits, I use a recovery item, saving me from annihilation if he does score a critical. This is FINALLY the end of "HOW TO FIGHT". ---------------------------------------- 3) DECALS [2.3] ---------------------------------------- It's a neat concept, though you have to use the stylus for them, and you can only use them once before you must return to the professor to refill them. To use a decal, press R or touch the green icon in the top right of the screen. Next, you touch the top right corner of the decal and peel it off, like you would in real life. Then, tap some spot on the map to place it. Finally, roll the top right corner up, so you can set the decal. After that is when the effects kick in. 1-? Decal: Transforms almost any enemy into some sort of animal 2-Mochi Decal: EXTREMELY useful decal if you know how to use it. At first, the decal will be HORRIBLY weak, but as you play with mochi, it will grow stronger. To make it strong, whenever you sleep, slide you stylus over Mochi slowly. He will roll over, and you can repeatedly tap him for a rain of smileys. It will take a LONG time before you get it to do massive damage. 3-Ship Decal: Sends you back to the ship instantly. DO NOT USE UNTIL YOU GET THE CELL!!!! Even if you are about to die. If your HP is depleted, you will just be sent back to the ship and have to restart everything. 4-Cell Decal: Just put on the cell to capture it. 5-Constellation Decal: Heals you. 6-Balloon Decal: Blow into the DS microphone to blow up balloon, causing damage to enemies. 7-Sun&Moon Decal: Random effect; Puts enemies to sleep or damages them. 8-UFO Decal: Refer to tips and tricks section; I donÂ’t know if that is 100% true. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ SECTION III:costumes [cos] ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Alright. This is the section for you if you want to find out how to get each and every costume. To change costumes, go to your room in the ship, and in the back is a dressing room. Here you can access your hard-earned costumes. ---------------------------------------------------------- 1-(Normal Dude)This is the basic costume. This is the one that you start with. 2-(Knuckle Mole) To find out where the guy is, refer to the Caldoaxa section of the faq. There is a miner just mining a wall. Anyway if you talk to him he will say like "Five minutes to lunch" or something. Wait and he will take off his clothes give you them. 3-(Aqua shot) In the Deserted Island where you first capture a cell, there is a secret passage in the south end of the wall. All you need to do is just walk through the wall. At the end is a costume on a coat-hanger-thing; just press A to get this costume. 4-(Nitro Boost) This one is easy. Go to the Bazaar(where all the stalls are) ,and on the top right is a guy in a stall(he is the one with a dog) he is selling car parts for 500 I think. Buy the parts and in the west side of town, there is a woman with a car (kinda hard to miss :) anyways, go over and talk to her and she will ask for the parts. Give them to her and she will hand over her racing clothes. 5-(Flyboy) Personally, I donÂ’t think this could be any easier if they tried. Just go to the FT Eagle base. Don't go in. There should be a soldier a little ways away from the door. Kill him or run past him or whatever, then go north into a new area. There will be some idiots pretending to be airplanes. DON'T BE DECIEVED!!! These guys aren't horribly strong, but they did present a small challenge to me. Once kill them all, one will give you their clothes (ugh...is this all people in this game do?),and TA-DA! You now own the Flyboy costume!(use the cloud sword to do tons of damage) 6-(Fisher King) Go to Aegis's 2nd pyramid(the one where you place the emblem). Inside the 2nd room AFTER placing the emblem, there is a hidden passage in one of the walls. In a chest in the passage, there is a big worm. Next, go to Ft. Eagle and in one screen, there is someone trying to catch a huge fish. All they need is bait, which you just got. Give it to them and they will "catch" the fish, but it eats them and spits out their clothes. Grab them to get the Fisher King costume. 7-(Mr. Cuisine) On the Deserted Island, there is a cave that leads to the top of the Isle. Travel northwest to another cave and in the south exit in THAT cave, there is a beach. On the beach is a note in a bottle (this will only appear once you've beaten this place). Pick it up and you can now go to Le chef beach. Go there. On the beach, you will meet the "Naked Chef"(I donÂ’t need to tell you what he looks like :). He will ask you to chase a monkey who took his clothes. Just keep going north, chasing the monkey, until you find him in a corner. Proceed with caution, as you have to fight a crazed animal. Don't worry too much, he's not that tough. Anyway the monkey will follow you. Take him back to the chef, and he will let you keep his clothes. 8-(Shadow Thief) In the same place as number 6, there is a room with coffins & other enemies. Go into the room on the right. Go look in the room and there will be a secret passage. There is a grave in there and go behind it to find another path. Keep heading south till you exit the pyramid. You should see a weird flying bird thing, then hit it(on your touch screen) it will drop a map that opens Bamboo Island. Go there and finish the mini- quest for the island, and you will get the Shadow Thief costume. For the first part, go to caldoaxa ruins. In the ruins, go right when you enter and go up until you see a guy blocking a door. Kill him and follow the path to the end and you will see two bugs glowing blue. STAY AWAY FROM THESE AT ALL COSTS!!! They are EXTREMELY strong. On the left of that room, there is a spice cabinet. Inside it are cloves. Take them back to the old man. For 2nd part give letter to the lady in Aegis that doesn't want you talking with her daughter. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Section IV:Tips and tricks [tat] ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This section is to give you tips and stuff. All of these were contributed by people on the boards, whose names I will mention in "Special Thanks". "You can kill the weapon store owner in Aegis[and Habara] over and over and he randomly drops an item from his store, which sell for alot!Definatly need to have this tip in there." "Almost any NPC is attackable (Not all are though)" "HereÂ’s something I noticed that you could add to the tips/tricks section of your FAQ:If enemies are following you, they can usually continue even if you enter a new area. If you enter that new area, then turn around and immediately go to the previous area again, then the following enemies will vanish." "IÂ’m not entirely sure about this but, the UFO at grandpas grave comes at a specific time of day. I waited all day yesterday for it but it never showed up. It wasn't until around 10 o'clock that the ufo appeared again. I remember reading some were that said that certain events happen during a specific time." ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Section V:Walk through [wkt] ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Finally... the section you came on here to get (probably). ******************************************************************* Deserted Isle [5.1] ******************************************************************* When you decide to start a new game, the introductory sequence will play along with the awesome background music. Right in the first part of it, the professor will be typing on his computer. To advance the scene, you have to tap him on the touch screen. He will ask you if you can hear him. Hit him again. He will ask you a few things to input. These are only used for "online' Contact. First, he will ask you YOUR name. Then, he will want the name of the planet you live on. After that, put in your hobby. NEXT, he wants your favorite food. Then least favorite food. Just put in a secret about yourself for his last question. After a few minutes, you input the main character's name (default is Terry). The next part will play and the professor will "kidnap" you. Someone will be shooting at the professorÂ’s ship from space. One hits them and they crash land on the planet you named earlier. Terry will be lying on the ground and the professor will start talking. When he's done, you have to tap Terry on the touch screen a few times. He will wake up, and finally, you can start the game. To get to the ship (where you save and do all that other stuff), go south, then east, then north. Also, refrain from fighting these guys till you get a weapon; they can kill you easily right now (you might be able to kill a few worms before your HP gets too low). When you go north, there will be an entrance to a cave with some worms in it. In the cave, there is an exit with a lot of light coming through it. Go through it to find your ship. To enter your ship, go left through a door on the deck. You should now be inside of you ship. There are 3 doors here. The one on the bottom right that leads to the kitchen (once you get Mr. Cuisine, you can use it). The one on the left is the professorÂ’s room. Go in there and the professor will explain your objective and give you your room. Go into your room. There will be 4 things there. A bath that heals you, a bed that is a save point, a globe in the corner called "SeaNavi" that you learn about later, and a dressing room in the back. Go save and heal and stuff, then go back to where there is a south path (little bit after where Terry woke up). On the way there, the professor will stop you 2 times and tell you a little about fighting and Techs. Go down the south path until you come to a purple seashell. Move past it and look in the tree. There should be some fruit there. Tap the fruit to knock it down. Pick it up and it will serve as a recovery item when you use it via the menu. Keep going and enter the cave and the professor stops you yet again to explain decals. Go up and left, then down through the exit. Open the chest with A, and a rusty knife will fly out. Open the menu with X, and place the cursor over the knife and press A 2 times. You have now equipped your first weapon! There is nothing else except a purple seashell to kill. Do whatever, but don't try to kill it yet. Then you can go back into the cave. Back in the cave, travel in an arc to the opposite side of the cave, and go down through the exit. Also, in the middle, there is a chest that contains an HERB. Be sure to kill bats and stuff as you proceed, as you will get a ton of bonuses leveling up here for a couple times. Outside, you should be in a very grassy, green area. Just go northwest to ANOTHER cave. If you head south in there, you should reach a shore. Other then the start of the MR. CUISINE COSTUME QUEST after you clear this island (See costume section),there is nothing of interest there. From either entrance go up and left to the next exit. In the next area, there will be a Red worm a little north. Unless you have leveled up a lot, avoid this thing. He has like somewhere between 50-100 hp,and his attacks do 3's! That means only about 10 hits at full hp! Do what you want, then continue north until the professor stops you. He will tell you to use your Cell Decal (the one that had the red hand on it before). Place it right on the cell, and flatten it. He will then tell you to go back to the ship. If you want the Aqua Shot costume, go back to the costume section. Now you gotta travel ALL the way back on foot; don't worry though, soon you will get a decal that lets you return to the ship right away. BTW now you can go get the bottle for the MR CUISINE costume. Once in the ship, go talk to the professor. Then go use the SeaNavi, set the course to Caldoaxa Ruins, and take a nap. ***************************************************************** Caldoaxa Ruins [5.2] ***************************************************************** When you awake, the professor will tell you about the ruins. After he shuts up, go out into the ruins. Keep heading into the ruins, and a scene will occur. Go down and you will see a rock spire with an entrance. Go down into it and you will find the shop. If you can spare it, pay 100 coins to turn your rusty knife into a normal knife. The shop also has some pretty good stock. Buy stuff, upgrade your knife, or do whatever. When you're finished, leave and go inside the ruins. Head right once you enter the ruins. Kill the guy at the second table for the ~Chicken Bites~ recipe. Go back and go into the left corridor and go all the way through it until you come across a locked door. The professor will start talking yet again! Now go all the way back to where you can go right, straight, or left. Go straight. Talk to the old guy and go back to the gate. On your way, a guy will block your path and there will be another scene. He will ask you if you want to come. Tell him yes. He will then open the locked door at the end; go through it. Keep going right until you come to a wheel/switch. Try to clear the room of enemies the best you can. Once you find the wheel, turn it. Run back to the beginning of the room, only go north at the beginning. The Demon's Gate will be almost closed, and you will barely make it through. Go through the next room till you find an exit with bright light shining through. To get the KNUCKLE MOLE costume and the Mage's Rod, go right instead of going through the previously mentioned door. Before the stairs at the top, there is a chest with the Mage's Rod. Go down the stairs and follow the path all the way to the end. Here you can get the Knuckle Mole costume (refer to the costume section). Back at the room with light, there is a bath & bed. Kinda odd for them to be in ruins..lol Save and heal, then proceed to the next room. You will have to fight a skeleton here. They aren't too tough, so don't worry. Take the left path and you will have to fight a couple more skeletons along with a mage. Continue up the stairs to find a chest with a key. You can go back and unlock the locked chest you just found to get a club, or you can go take the right path and unlock one of 3 doors. Pick one, and go into the next room. There is a TON of whatever-the-heck they ares(look like mud men or voodoo dolls).go past them and in between the next set of walls there is a bath and bed hidden in the bottom of the chamber. There is another hidden room(sort of) in the bottom of that room. It's a shortcut to the beginning of the area. Just keep passing all the rest of the enemies unless you want to level up. The reason is because you have to fight a boss really soon. Just keep going until you see a small, pink demon. The hall it's guarding is where you want to be. Go up it until the professor talks again. After a few seconds of running, you will meet up with Lester Sprawl. Only this time, he isn't here to talk. BOSS:LESTER_SPRAWL HP:300 Difficulty:4/10 My Description: A crazed archeologist trying to kill you. My Strategy: This dude is HARD if you didnÂ’t level up enough. It's really essential to have 5 on your Tech Gauge. If you have been treating Mochi really good till now, he will help you so much. The tech I would recommend would have to be either Dual Flash or Power strike. Anyway, other than this stuff, to kill him, just beat him down until you get to about 30 hp. Then use healing items until your health is full. Also, for this fight, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A LOT OF RECOVERY ITEMS!I canÂ’t stress this enough! Make sure you are a high level, too. If you lose to him, level up for about 15 minutes, then go fight him again. If you need recovery items, go back to the shop. All of the above applies only to those who didn't level up. To know if you have, you should have about 120 hp with the knuckle mole costume on. If you do, you will only need a few recovery items. After you kill Lester, you will learn something about him, and the professor will start talking again. For winning, you get the CLOUD SWORD. After the scene, go up to the door and open it. There are a ton of pink demons in the next room. Just run through it to avoid unnecessary health loss, because you have to fight another boss when you leave this new room. BOSS:GOLEM HP:Right Arm:280 Left Arm:280 Head: 600 Difficulty:6/10 My description: The only huge boss in the game. My strategy: Really Easy. Just keep attacking either arm until he raises it. Run away for a few seconds until he hits the ground, then run back and attack. Keep doing this until both arms are destroyed, and his body will crumble, enabling you to target his head. Also, to avoid the boulder(s) that fall from the top screen, run from one end of the stage to the other to make them fall in that direction, then run back the other way. Once you are fighting the head, fight with caution, as he can summon little black orbs from the top screen that drain your hp and give it to the boss. These are very dangerous, even though they donÂ’t do "massive damage". They do still cause quite a bit of damage, though, but not massive. Anyway, just focus on attacking the head because there isn't anything that the head itself can do to damage you. Once this moderately tough boss fight is over, the cell will appear, so use your cell decal to capture it and head back to the ship. Talk to the professor, set the SeaNavi for Ft Eagle, and take a nap. ********************************************************* Ft. Eagle [5.3] ********************************************************* When you wake up, the professor will tell you about Ft. Eagle and tells you about where he thinks the cell is. Head out into Ft. Eagle and continue along the path until you come to an old man (Apt.) & his dog. He will think you're with the army and he will tell you about how the army wrecked his life. The professor will speak to you and tell you that it seems the government has a secret agenda. He'll tell you about himself and he wants you to escort him to his house, but you will once again be stopped by... you guessed it, the professor. He will receive a sos of a little girl who is shivering with fear inside a house. The old man+dog will follow you and want to stop by his house first. To get to the next area, follow the path and go up. In this new area, if you head left, you will find a guy who sells Potions, Elixers(antidotes), Bottles, and a potion recipe. To me, this is the most helpful guy in the entire game. Buy the largest supply of potions you can afford, and if you want, buy a few elixers. Be sure to keep an eye on Apt, because if there's even the smallest thing in his way, he will get stuck, forcing you to go back and get him from where you first meet him if you move onto the next area without him. When you're finished shopping, kill the snake a little north of him and open the chest nearby for a BUTTERFLY KNIFE. Go back to where you entered and go up until you see some demented blue sheep and a chest. Open it for an ELIXER, and continue to the west into a new place with tons of slimes (enemies). There is a chest with a MALLET a little north from the entrance. Continue west again till you see a snake. Kill it and go down from there to reach his house along with a nasty little surprise (you can continue west from the place where you just turned to reach some cows and a fisher for the FISHER KING costume. At the bottom on the right, there is a chest with a ~fancy soup~ recipe. BOSS:ARMY_SOLDIERS x4; ARMY_COMMANDER x1 Potions recommended:1-3 HP:Army soldiers:35-40 Commander:300-330 Difficulty:2/10 Description: A squad of 5 soldiers. Strategy: Take out the soldiers first, then the commander, as he is the strongest and you wont have to deal with 4 enemies while fighting him. Once he's out, the rest is a breeze. Just attack the soldiers, then the commander. After all 5 are killed, they will retreat and you will go into the house to find the little girl. She will tell you a bit about her, and the old man will want to talk to you, and so will the professor. In the bottom corner of the room is an article about the CosmoNOTS which will raise you intelligence if you read it. On the top right is a stove where you can cook if you have the Mr. cuisine costume on. Leave the house when you're finished and go down into the next area. There will be some more soldiers here, though no commander. They have a lot more hp than the ones you just fought did, so be careful. On the bottom left of this area, there is a chest with some money. Head east into the next area once you're done here. When you reach the army base, go all the way down and up, and watch out for the chain guns, because they can hit you at long range. Move through the area by staying close to the edge, and you will eventually come to a safe in front of the fence. Push it out of the way (this safe doubles as a shop) and go left for a chest with a KEYCARD. Go the opposite way to get to the entrance of the base, and to the north is the FLYBOY costume. Enter the base to find a blue army commander. Kill him or go past him, and there is another one guarding a chest with a potion. Continue up the north path to find another one. Kill him and continue on to the next area. Go either on the top or bottom path to get to the next part. At the next part there is a chest on the left containing a STEAK. On the right path here, there is a room with a chest which holds an ELEMENTAL STAFF. Continue down till you come to another room. There are 2 blue soldiers and a red commander, so be careful. Go on either side; youÂ’ll end up in the same place. Head right in this room for a bed and bath (FIHNALLY!!). You should level up here for a while, because you have to fight a LONG boss fight if you are a low level. On the top left, there is a door blocked by beams. There is a machine on the wall next to the door. If you got the KEYCARD earlier, you will have access to 3 chests, though for 2 of them you'll need a key(buy them from the safe outside) for the other one, youÂ’ll need the shadow thief costume. Press on through the other path that is unexplored. A ton of scientists will come out panicking. Head through that same door to find the cause. BOSS: SNAKE Potions recommended:5-9 HP:550 Description:ummm...............a snake. Difficulty:7/10 Strategy: Straightforward, but tough. Just bring a few potions and use them when your health gets around 30. Keep doing this and you'll win. When he is dead, open the chest on the right for an ELIXER. In the new area, head left until you reach a lot of green and black things. Use your ? Decal on them if you still have it. Either way, just keep pressing forward. On the bottom right, there is a ? DECAL(personal decal) in a chest. When you reach a walkway with a silver floating cube, run straight through the next room. These cubes are pretty strong and there's like 4 in the next room. When you run through there, there is a familiar face in the next room. BOSS:LESTER_SPRAWL 2 potions recommended:7-12 HP:700 Difficulty:7/10 Description: A HARD crazed archeologist trying to kill you. Strategy: Just fight and bring a lot of potions. Unfortunately for you, Lester calls on Mint to start up the Plasma Cannon. Leave the area and head left in the next one and you will finally meet Mint. UGH! Another boss fight. BOSS:COMPUTRON_6000/SOLDIERS xInfinite Potions recommended:6-10 HP:750 Difficulty:3/10 Description: A weird machine that spawns infinite soldiers(three at a time). Strategy: This is an interesting fight. To distract the scientists, press one of the + or - buttons on the touch screen. To damage this thing, you need to have no soldiers on the field at all. Start the fight by hitting all the soldiers until they have almost no health left. Then, hit the + and - buttons until on the TV the pink channel is playing. Kill the soldiers as fast as you can and run over to the computron and start using techs on it and go all out. Eventually, the scientists will lose their interest in the TV and go back to spawning the soldiers. Just repeat until it is dead. Tip: DONÂ’T CHANGE THE TV CHANNEL WHILE THE FLOOR IS RED!!! Floor colors: Red: Damages you Light Blue: Nothing Dark blue: CanÂ’t attack(you can't) Green: Slows you down When the Computron is destroyed, the cell will appear for you to capture with your cell decal. Provided you still have your ship decal, use it and teleport back to the ship. Talk wit the professor to learn about the next cell. ***************************************** Aegis [5.4] ***************************************** After you rest and set the seanavi and stuff, get off the ship and go into aegis. The professor will give you the constellation decal before you leave. Leave the ship and go up into the next area. Turn left and go into that area. In THAT area, go north to find a village/town/bazaar. Outside, where you enter is a guy in a stall selling fruits and veggies. When you enter the town, there will be another scene with Terry just walking around. He'll eventually go into a stall and will see two people talking. Then some guy named Bull takes the guy away and they leave. You can get Blue Eyes V. 11 by killing the guy at the entrance. There is a cosmoNOTS article in the shop that is next to the weapons shop. When you're done here, go right and up and you will initiate a scene with two girls. On the top right here you can buy car parts for the NITROBOOST costume. You can also buy the Deed for the pyramid that is vacant. Go through the exit on your left and keep going up into another pyramid. Keep going straight until you come to a yellow door. Examine it and the professor will start talking again. Leave the pyramid and go back to the right side of the town where there is another pyramid. Outside of it is an archeologist. Talk to him and he will ask you to take him into a secret room in a pyramid. Tell him yes and go into the pyramid right in front of you. Go through the first room and into the second. Go all the way around the room until you get to the middle on the opposite side and go down. You will feel air coming through the wall. Tell the archeologist, and he will discover a hidden door. Go through it and go up all the stairs into another chamber. The archeologist will explore the room and will give you a ROYAL DAGGER as a reward. Go through the right wall and into the next room. In this room, there are a lot of panels on the ground. Step on one while wearing the appropriate weapon/costume. For the fist symbol, equip a punching weapon. For the sword(obviously), use a sword. For the hammer symbol, use a hammer. Each time you step on a panel, you will get a skill or stat increase. After all of them are gone, the door will open. Go through it. In this room, you have to make them disappear by wearing the correct costume. Just step on a panel while wearing Flyboy, Nitro Boost, Aqua shot, and Knuckle Mole. After you step on these panels, the door will open. Head into the next room and open the chest at the top of the room to get Felio's emblem. Remember the locked door you found a little bit ago? Now you can open it. Once you get there, place Felio's emblem in the door and go through it. Go straight through the room and into the next one. Be careful of the floating things; they can summon other enemies. There are also a couple other new enemies, but deal with them as you would with most enemies. Go up the stairs and up and again. If you go down from there, you'll reach a hidden passage with a chest and a Big Worm (I think) for the Fisher King costume. Go through the door to the north. Go up all the stairs in this room and go to the next room. If you go down, you will get to a chest with a POTION inside. Go down the left set of stairs and go to the south wall by a sarcophagus(lol bad spelling). There should be an indent in the wall. Go through it and follow it all the way to the end and you will see a scene with the two people you saw earlier. They reveal themselves as Bull Beatnix and Nadia Krall. And unfortunately, they are CosmoNOTs, and as you found out in Caldoaxa, CosmoNOTs aren't friendly. BOSS:BULL_BEATNIX Potions recommended:1-3 HP:900 Difficulty:5/10 My Description: Uhh... A member of the cosmoNOTs? Strategy: Just bring lots of potions. He isn't that strong. You're in good shape if you can hit around 50 or 40s. Just keep hitting him until he loses. He will sometime make some sort of pose, but I always interrupted it so I donÂ’t know what he does after that :). He will drop the BEAT KNUCKLE once he's finished, and will retreat. Pick up the weapon, and go up the left stairs. In that room is a bed and bath, so rest and heal, then continue on. Go up the stairs to the top and go through the door. If you want a ~Rice Pilaf~ recipe, go down the opposite set of stairs. The next room is just a long series of corridors. Go into the door at the end and you will have to fight four mages to open the door to the next room. For the most part, just try your best to avoid their spells. When they're dead, go into the next room. There is treasure in here, but you will get trapped by a ton of Sarcophaguses. If you want the treasure, you should return here later. Once you go through the next room, you will witness a scene where the CosmoNOTs are under a mini-pyramid. Terry will wander around until the scene is over. When it is over, go up the left stairs for a SWANKY SOUP, or go up the right ones to advance through the pyramid. When you go up either set, there will be another scene. There is a bed and bath ahead of you; when you're finished, enter the final room. BOSS: PYRAMID Potions recommended:10-15 HP:?????(5 hits) Difficulty:7/10 My Description: Weird floating pyramid. Strategy: Before you can fight it, you have to kill 4 sarcophaguses. When all are dead, you will be sucked up inside the pyramid. Four green figures will appear once you enter the pyramid. One of them is real and will damage the pyramid when hit. Each fake will have an effect if you hit it. Oh, and a little green ball will bounce around, damaging you if it hits you. Trap: Does 1 damage you, and cant move for a bit Damage:Umm... duh Disappears: The figure will vanish Attack the right figure 5 times(total) to destroy the Pyramid. The cell will fall from the sky, so capture it and go back to the ship. Talk to the professor and he will tell you about an SOS from the CosmoNOTs. Watch it and the professor will decide to help them on one condition. They agree and tell the professor what he wanted, and he releases them. Once they do, the professor will give you the Balloon Decal. Set the SeaNavi to Habara, go to bed, and take a bath. **************************************************** Habara [5.5] ***************************************************** Once you're done talking with the professor, leave the ship once again and set foot on Habara. Outside, walk right and enter the shop. Go up the stairs. Go right to find a shopkeeper selling only one thing. Blue Sky March. It's expensive(10,000), but you need it for the next area. If you don't have the money, repeat the Aegis trick in the Tips and Tricks section, only do it in Habara, 1st floor. You can also kill the nerds for tons of money. When you're finished, go up the stairs. On the second shelf here, there is a CosmoNOTs article. Ignore the treasure chests for now, unless you have a key and shadow thief clothes. Continue up the stairs and a guy should stop you, asking if you want to buy an electromagnetic shield apron. The lights will start to flicker and the professor will start to break up. He will disappear. A couple feet from where he was, 2 refrigerators will attack you. Keep going up the stairs until you reach another dark room with a bath and bed. Bathe and sleep, then keep going. In the next room there are several sets of stairs, but just keep going until you see an arcade machine along with a nerd. Press A at the machine to play the game. This is a racing game that isnÂ’t that hard. Leave the starting point and go north. Continue to follow this path. You will eventually come across a place with 2 paths. Go down and you will find another intersection. At this one, go left to find a pile of cars. Destroy the cars and you will get first place. Step down and cross the finish line to get to the next room. Save and take a bath and continue upwards. Go left to a dead end. There is a hidden path at the top of this wall, so go through it to find yet another arcade machine in the next room. Go in. This stage is pretty linear, so I don't need to guide you through it. At the end is a bath and a bed. Again, go up the stairs. There will be a concert starring none other then the CosmoNOTs. Tons of nerds will start flooding in (ahh nerd invasion!!^_^) Everyone will start "Booing" Terry, and he will go onstage. Lester throws Terry against the wall and Mint will ask the audience for the cells, and they will give them to her. They will then leave and the professor will talk (again!). He tells you that Terry is in bed and stuff. The rest of this incredibly long scene will play and the professor will give you the Sun & Moon Decal. Go set the seanavi to Akumojo castle and sleep. ********************************************************* Akumojo Castle/Rizo Island [5.6] ********************************************************* Akumojo castle is too stormy, so set the SeaNavi to Rizo Island and rest again. (You will need a key for this area which you can get at Ft. Eagle) This place is really short. Enter Nadia's house and open the door with a key. Go through the cave and avoid or kill the turtles. At the end you will find Nadia playing her keyboard. Wait until she moves, then go over and put "Blue Sky March" into the keyboard. It will clear the storms around Akumojo castle. You can now enter Akumojo castle, so go set your SeaNavi for Akumojo castle after talking with the professor. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> <>><><><><><> <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> <><><><><><>> AKUMOJO CASTLE [5.7] <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> <>><>><<><><> <><><><><><><<><><><><><>><<> <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> The final mission. Get off the ship and into the castle. I would recommend bringing a lot of potions. I don't know if I was just really weak, but I had to use a lot potions in Akumojo castle. Anyway, once you're inside, go straight down the hall into the next room. In this room, go left and up. Go forward from here to get to a bed and bath. If you're weak, this is a great place to level up. Go right and follow the path all the way around the room into the next. You will eventually run into a monkey. Don't follow it or else you will have to fight a large demon. Don't go through any extra doors, because most don't really have anything except enemies. Go through this hall to get to find a bed. In the room after this one you will encounter Nadia. She will distract you so Bull can capture you from behind. He does. He will take him prisoner and chain him up on a wall. A huge demon will come and start beating you up. Advance the scene quickly, because he does damage you. And you will have to wake him up by tapping him. After the unexpected rescue, go take a bath on the right side, and continue on the left side. Continue through the hall till you come to a square room with 4 exits. Go through the top right one. From there, go up,right,up, up,right,down,right,up, to find a bath and bed. Onto the series of bosses leading up to the end of the game. But first, you have to get past a lot of enemies plus a giant demon. Keep going through a ton of halls until you find a bath and bed. When you're done here, proceed into the final part of the castle. BOSS:RED_DRAGON Potions recommended:5-20 HP:2000 My Description: A big dragon that's trying to kill you. Difficulty:6/10 Strategy: The RD will try to attack you right away, so move. When ever the RD stops, run away because it will probably attack you. He'll eventually start making tornadoes that push you back to the wall. Occasionally, RD will fly up into the top screen and shoot giant fireballs everywhere. Just stay in one place. Always make sure you have at least 100 hp, because the RD will grab you, fly up to the top screen, and throw you down. He will also fly up to send thunderbolts everywhere. Just stay away when he breathes fire, because that hits a lot of times. If you stay there, he will inflict massive damage. Once you deal 2000 damage to him, you will have to fight another boss. BOSS:LESTER_SPRAWL 3 & BULL_BEATNIX 2 Potions recommended:2-10 HP: Lester:600 Bull:700 Difficulty:7/10 My Description: Two cosmoNOTs? Strategy: Not much strategy involved. Just take out one of them before the other. Get ready to fight another boss. BOSS:RED_DRAGON Potions recommended:10-25 HP:2000 My Description: A big dragon that's trying to kill you. Difficulty:8/10 Strategy: Pretty much the same as the RD you fought a little bit ago, except when he breathes fire, he will breathe it in all directions at once. The only difference is <><><><><><><><><><><><><<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> FINAL BOSS:MINT Potions recommended:2-10 HP:1200 My Description: The final boss; a girl. Difficulty:7/10 Strategy: Mint constantly will use this attack. But it will sometimes stun you. Just keep exchanging hits until she's dead. Congrats on beating the game Contact. In the ending, you need to "fight" Terry. Just keep hammering on him on the touch screen until he loses. PLEASE READ THE CONCLUSION BEFORE YOU EXIT THIS FAQ. CONGRATS!!!!! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Section VII: Hidden stuff [hdn] ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 1)[7.1] I copied all of this onto my FAQ. jgesner1 let me copy all of this. Caldoaxa Ruins: +30 Courage - Likes Flowers Ft. Eagle: +36 Wisdom - Likes Bugs. La Chef Beach: +30? (unsure of needed #) Fame - Likes Gems Habara: -51 Karma - Likes Video Games Getting the items they want: Killing those weird blue things on Ft. Eagle will get you Flowers. The best place to farm insects is Caldoaxa. The spiders and pill bugs in the regular dungeon drop Grasshoppers and Beetles, and the pill bugs in the store room of the spice shop drop Beetles, Stag Beetles, and Ladybugs. I think you have to actually give at least one of each type of item that the girls like to get them to move onto your boat; I'd given a lot of insects to the girl on Ft. Eagle's isle, but she didn't agree to come aboard until after I'd finally given her a Grasshopper. The monsters inside the pyramids in Aegis drop gems. The people on the first 2 floors of Habara drop Video Games. Fishing On Ft. Eagle, there is a pond by the convenience store dude, and its jam packed full of gems. If you want to fish for Video Games there's a semi-hidden bathtub in Habara you can fish to get them. After the car race "mini-game," go up from the save area and to the right to find the tub. So far I've caught nothing but video games. Losing Karma The fastest way is to rob stores by opening their chests. However, since there are only a few in Habara and one in Caldoaxa, that's not a great option. What I did was run around the first 2 floors of Habara knocking out customers and using the Snatch skill to steal from them. It's effective, it raises your thief skills at the same time, and you can get TONS of money from all the weapons you'll be getting from the vendors. It's also a great way to stock up on video games for her and the guy out
