==========--------------- Level 1 - On the Road Again ---------------==========
                                                                               
Go to the right along the higher platforms. Collect the items up there except 
for the boots, you can't reach those. If you do want them, get the ladder. Go 
back to the left and use the ladder right next to it. Climb the ladder and get 
it. Either way, you will have to continue to the right. There will be two low 
platforms there, on the second will be a rock man. Kill it with your fireballs. 
Continue to the right and collect all of the K symbols in your way. Continue to 
the right and you will reach the soldiers. Keep killing them and slowly advance 
to the right. Attack the gargoyle when it swoops down from the tree.
                                                                               
Keep going to the right and you will see two more rock men, a gray one will be 
on the ground and an orange one will be on the higher platform. Keep going to 
the right and climb the stairs. You will now reach a few floating demons. Keep 
moving to the right as you kill them and you will eventually reach different 
enemies. You will reach a gray rock man, then an orange rock man, then a 
gargoyle. After those will be a few floating eyes and more floating demons. 
Keep moving to the right until you get to the Merman. He will just walk, shoot, 
and jump. Duck and keep shooting at him. Whenever he jumps, just walk right 
under him. Keep doing that until you defeat him. 
                                                                               
==========----------------- Level 2 - Animal House ------------------==========
                                                                               
Go to the right and kill the blockheads. Keep climbing up this structure as you 
kill them. There are two paths you could go by here. At the end of this large 
structure with blockheads, you could fall down. You could also stay on the 
higher platform. You will have to choose one or the other. Look for whichever 
path you take below:
                                                                               
High Path:
You will see two rock men, then you have to climb a ladder. You could jump onto 
the wall up here and move to the right. Attack the blockhead and keep moving to 
the right. There will be a lot of floating enemies here. Fall down and you will 
reach a lot of items. Collect them and attack the starman. Climb up the stairs 
to the right and fall down there. Look at the paragraph after the Low Path to 
learn what to do from here.
                                                                             
Low Path:
Grab the items and keep moving to the right without stopping. Fall down and 
collect these items. Go to the right and attack the starmen. Climb the platform 
and avoid the jumpers. Keep going to the top and avoid the fireballs. Go to the 
right and you will be trapped in a room. Move to the right corner until you see 
bats appear. Attack them all until they are all dead and continue to the right. 
Move to the right and climb those stairs to the top while collecting all of the 
items. 
                                                                               
Keep going to the right and attack all of the floating eyes and soldiers. After 
a while, you will see the boss. Just duck and keep shooting at him quickly and 
the lion and tamer will die quickly.
                                                                               
==========------------ Level 3 - Karnov, Dinosaur Hunter ------------==========
                                                                               
Go to the right and kill the gargoyle. Climb up to the top of the tree just 
before the gap. From there, you could jump over the gap to the right. Keep 
moving to the right and kill all of the enemies in your way. Keep moving to the 
right until you see a hole with a dark background. Fall down there and move to 
the right while collecting the items. Kill the starmen that get in your way 
too. Climb the ladder at the end and keep moving to the right. Kill the rock 
man and climb the stairs. Fall down at the end and keep moving to the right. 
You will eventually reach the boss. 
                                                                               
==========--------------- Level 4 - The Frozen North ----------------==========
                                                                               
Go to the right and you will see a lot of bombs to the left appear. Grab them 
and go to the right. Kill the floating eyes and gargoyles as you go up the 
stairs. Keep going to the right and kill the flying enemies. Get to the top of 
the mountain and keep going to the right. Avoid the volcanoes and jump the 
gaps. Stay on the highest path as possible. You will then reach the boss. Just 
keep attacking her like you attacked the Rex.
                                                                               
==========---------------- Level 5 - Under the Sea ------------------==========
                                                                               
Fall into the water to the right. Keep moving to the right and kill all of the 
enemies in your way. Climb onto the island when you reach it. Collect the items 
at the top and kill the mermen. Now go to the right and swim some more. Get to 
the next island by swimming. Avoid the flying enemeies and you will fight the 
boss. It's another Rex. Just take him out quickly. 
                                                                               
==========---------------- Level 6 - Tower of Power -----------------==========
                                                                               
Go to the right and clear out the soldiers. You could take the high path for 
items but there are a lot of enemies there. Go through the lower path if you 
don't want to fight them. Continue to the right and fight off the flying 
demons. Climb to the top of the pyramid and fall off to the right. Keep going 
to the right and fight off all of the enemies. You will reach another Lamia 
boss. Fight her just like you fought her last time.
                                                                               
==========--------------- Level 7 - It's a Dry Heat -----------------==========
                                                                               
Go to the right and you will fight the same few enemies in a row. Afterwards 
you will fight the blockheads. Climb that structure and then climb the pyramid 
right after. Use the boots to jump over the pillar and keep moving to the 
right, you'll have to fight another Rex boss here.
                                                                               
==========--------------- Level 8 - Come Fly With Me ----------------==========
                                                                               
Jump around here until some wings appear. Use them to fly to the right. Stay 
along the bottom of the screen and grab the next set of wings. Shoot the eye of 
the statue and look at the base of the pillars here. Stop at the pillar with 
wings at the base of it. Shoot the eye of the next statue to get past it. 
Collect the bombs at the wall and blow through it. Grab the next set of wings 
and fall. Start jumping to the right across the platforms. When you reach the 
end, fly to the top right to fight the boss. Just attack the top of its head 
while you avoid its shots to kill it.
                                                                               
==========----------- Level 9 - Out of the Frying Pan... ------------==========
                                                                               
Go to the right and kill the enemies in your way. Climb up the ladder and start 
moving to the left. Climb the ladder and run all the way to the right. Stay on 
the high path and drop when you reach the wall. Keep heading for the top right 
corner of this level. When you reach the top right, you will see three windows. 
The snake boss will pop out of one of the windows and then shoot a fireball at 
you. Avoid the fireballs and keep shooting him until he dies.
