1. Last I heard we were pretty sure Item locations are not randomized, at least not in the sense that they would be different in each playthrough. (they just depend on difficulty)

My guess is that the Medic Ball was just somehow left out of the list.

I guess the way we can tell is this: In the topic post for http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/991750-alphabounce/55176983 , counting that up, would that leave 76 vacant slots? It has been a while and I don't remember how many slots there are.

If not, the Medic Ball could indeed have simply been overlooked in the initial listing.

[prepares for response in 3 months]

2. I think the squares on top of a planet are shaded blue. Or maybe they're gray. I dunno, it's been a while since I played. But anyways, beat those squares. All of 'em. You can watch the Planet's completion progress in the Equipment screen as you do it!

Bah, messed up numbering again.

Just assume that I can in fact count, and that the numbers are 1., 2., and 3., in that order.

I think you were talking about me, and thanks for SOMEBODY finally replying ;)

That list is really helpful, although I haven't played the game in ages, and don't have much of a desire to pick it back up.

BTW, I was also just complaining on another gamefaqs board about the archiving of topics. It is NUTS. They are archiving topics that are like 1-2 months old, forcing people to create new threads, further cluttering the board. It seems pointless and counterproductive to having a "clean" board.

Thanks for the reply, Exp_HP
