2)GAMEPLAY [2.2]
--------------------------
Contact is a Real-Time RPG Game that is filled with a lot of fun things. 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.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

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.

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
