FAQ/Walkthrough by Overated

Version: 1.01 | Updated: 06/17/07

One thousand years ago, superstition and the sword ruled. It was a time of
darkness. It was a world of fear. It was the age of Gargoyles. Stone by day,
warriors by night, we were betrayed by the humans we had sworn to protect, 
frozen in stone by a magic spell for a thousand years. Now, here in Manhattan,
the spell is broken, and we live again! We are defenders of the night! We are

Some of you may remember 'Gargoyles' the animated TV show from the old Disney
afternoon school block. I've watched some episodes recently and despite being a
few years older than when I originally watched them the show is still good.
Some cartoons get nostalgically hyped in our mind but not 'Gargoyles.' It was
more entertaining watching it now than when I was an ignorant kid. Season 1
DVDs will soon be offered for sale (more may be offered if sales go well) and
the show is still airing on some Disney animation channel. As for the game, I'm
playing it because of my love for the show. I expected to grind my way through
a horrible game but I must admit, this game is much better than I expected. It
is not a great game but it is a decent platformer with a few innovative aspects.

I. THE STORY

Obviously some of you aren't 'lucky' enough to get to devote a significant
amount of your time to playing a game as 'great' as Gargoyles. Here I've copied
text from the story scenes and offer an analysis of how faithful it is to the
animated show. This section has major SPOILERS.

KEY:

^text^ are my descriptions of the what the screen looks like when the game's
story appears.
--text-- are my descriptions of what happened in the level.
***text*** is a brief summary of how the game's story contrasts with the story
of the animated show.
TEXT (IN CAPITAL LETTERS) is the game's actual story, which also appears in
capital letters.

^The Game starts with a still scene of a bearded Viking face looking up at an
artifact, the Eye of Odin. His open hands and helmeted head are the only parts
of him that are visible. On the right text appears and fades away.^

^The animation changes. On the lower left is Goliath, wings outstretched.
Behind him is a large fire and Castle Wyvern, with smoke pouring out of the
rampart windows. More text appears to the right of Goliath.^

  MAD WITH POWER,
 VIKING INVADERS
OVERRAN CASTLE WYVERN.
<fades away>

  LEVEL 1
EVIL AWAKENS
<fades away>

--Goliath proceeds through Castle Wyvern, destroying any Vikings that oppose
him.--

***How true is this section to the story of the animated series?

Not very. 'Gargoyles' does start at Castle Wyvern (located in Scotland) in the
year 994 A.D and Vikings are invading the castle. The Eye of Odin is not does
not appear till much later in the 'Gargoyle' universe. I think the first
mentioning of it isn't until Avalon, Part I which is the 34th episode and
doesn't involve the Vikings at all. No reason is given for the Vikings raid on
Castle Wyvern, other than the obvious that they're Vikings and that is what
Vikings do. Also the Vikings ransack the castle during the day when Goliath is
gone and, unlike the first level seems to insinuate, the Vikings are not fully
entrenched. In the show they simply ransack the castle, destroy the Gargoyle
statues (Gargoyles turn to stone during the day), take some prisoners and
leave. Goliath and the few remaining Gargoyles fight the Vikings away from the
castle. On a side note, when Gargolyes die they do not turn into a pile of
dust. That is unless they were killed in stone form. Gargolyes are flesh and
blood during the night, not composed of rock.***

<after the level ends>

^The text is on the left, on the right is an angry Goliath, eyes red as he
dives towards the screen. The sky and the opening to a large cavern are visible
behind him.^

THE VIKING ARMY
INVADED THE ROOKERY
IN A SAVAGE ATTEMPT
TO DESTROY THE
GARGOYLE EGGS, AND
THE ENTIRE RACE.
FOR ALL TIME ....

      LEVEL 2
SIEGE OF THE ROOKERY

***How true is this section to the story of the animated series?

This part was made up by the game designers. Like I mention earlier the Vikings
attacked the castle because they are Vikings, not because of some personal
vendetta against Gargoyles. The Rookery was the one save place in Castle
Wyvern. Most of the Gargolyes who survived the attack--four out of the
five--were in the Rookery (Broadway, Lexington, Bronx and Brooklyn). Also
Goliath's eyes do not turn red when he is angry, they turn completely white.
Demona's eyes (female Gargolye) turn red.***

--Goliath goes to the Rookery and smites some more Vikings. After the boss of
level 2 is defeated the Eye of Odin flies from his body and flies off the
screen.--

^Goliath now crouches still on the burning castle's ramparts. Dawn has just
cracked and illuminated the ocean water. Goliath has turned to stone.^

THOUGH THE VIKING
ARMY WAS ROUTED,
GOLIATH WAS BLAMED
FOR CASTLE
WYVERN'S
DESTRUCTION.
<text fades>

AS PUNISHMENT, HE
WAS CURSED TO
SLEEP IN STONE
UNTIL THE CASTLE
RESTED ABOVE THE
CLOUDS.

HE WAITS ...

^Goliath is still in the same stone position but instead of Scotland in the
background one can see tall skyscrapers and two blue searchlights.^

WYVERN WAS REBUILT

IN DOWNTOWN
MANHATTAN ...
<text fades>

ABOVE THE CLOUDS.

HE WAITS NO LONGER.
<text fades>

    LEVEL 3
STONE AND STEEL

***How true is this section to the story of the animated series?

At least they kept the part about the Gargoyles waking up in Manhattan. Goliath
was not blamed for the destruction of Castle Wyvern. The HUMAN Captain of the
Guard betrayed his own people and let the Vikings in. The Vikings captured the
princess and killed the stone Gargoyles. Goliath and the few who remained went
to take vengeance on the Vikings and the castle's mage, Magus (May-gus) thought
that the princess was killed in the fighting. He cast a curse on all the
Gargoyles but Goliath, that they would remain in stone until the castle rose
above the clouds. It was all a big misunderstanding though. Goliath saved the
princess (she was in the way when he was taking revenge) and Magus soon
realized his mistake. He couldn't reverse the curse so Goliath instead asked to
be frozen in stone with the rest of his clan. The story so far as failed to
mention any of the characters but Goliath and completely passed on interesting
plot twist. It would have taken them about 5 more still screens a 10 more lines
of text to get the story right.

Fittingly Goliath wakes up in New York with no explanation and the same health
he had when he slew the Viking in the Rookery. Stone sleep heals Gargoyles,
that's why they do that. After 1000 years you'd think Goliath would gain a
little bit more health back. Also there is no volcano underneath Castle Wyvern
and the Rookery is not made of molten magma.***

--Goliath awakens near a museum. As soon as he comes near it the Eye of Odin
emerges and summons creatures and machines to kill Goliath. All of level 3 is
spent with Goliath pursuing the Eye and the Eye keeps summoning creatures and
machines. At the end Goliath defeats the Eye boss.--

^Goliath stands in the lower left of the screen. A opening in the cave he is in
illuminates him and the menacing creature standing behind him. Dawn is about to
arise but Goliath is still awake, his eyes glowing red with menace.  The
creature towers over Goliath, holding a ball of green energy in its right hand.^

THE CURSE WAS LIFTED,
BUT AN ANCIENT EVIL
STILL HAUNTS GOLIATH.
<text fades>

THE EYE OF ODIN HAS
SURVIVED TO BECOME
A WEAPON FOR A NEW
KIND OF ARMY.
<text fades>

     LEVEL 4
SUBTERRANEAN TERROR

***How true is this section to the story of the animated series?

Instead of introducing the actual characters of the Gargoyle universe, the game
has made the Eye of Odin some kind of uber villain. None of the other Gargoyles
have been mentioned and there is still no explanation as to why the tower was
brought to Manhattan and raised above the clouds. The Eye of Odin is not an
evil artifact. It is the eye that Odin exchanged for wisdom. It is a very
powerful item that will grant its wearer immense strength but it doesn't have a
mind of its own and if it did it wouldn't remain in a museum for a 1000 years
just to fly out at the exact moment Goliath awakens. What a lame bad guy, give
me Xanatos any day.***

--Goliath is now on a train for some reason. When he reaches the front black
robot Gargoyles attack him and as their red leader hovers off to the side. One
would think that this is the Steel Clan, but unless Xanatos (in the show he
pilots the red Gargoyle machine) has been eating a steady diet of explosives it
probably isn't.--

^Goliath stands on a rock as white hot liquid metal is poured in front of him.
The light from the splashing liquid allows us to see Goliath's back and
unfurled wings.^

THE PATH TO THE EYE OF
 ODIN LEADS GOLIATH TO
  THE BIRTHPLACE OF THE
   LETHAL ROBOTS THAT
    SWARM THE CITY.
<text fades>

 LEVEL 5
THE FORGE

***How true is this section to the story of the animated series?

This is exactly like the show! Except for the part about the train, the Steel
Clan not being piloted by Xanatos and the "lethal robots that swarm the city."
Not only is this story completely unfaithful to the Disney version, it isn't
very good or interesting (Unlike the actual story which is pretty sweet).***

--Goliath trudges through the dangers of the forge doing some of the most
ridiculous things a Gargoyle can do until he finally reaches the end and
finds... DEMONA!--

^A female Gargoyle (you can tell because of her voluptuous curves) stands
between two jagged metal outcroppings, her wings fully extended. Wires run down
from the top outcropping to her head. Embedded into the upper outcropping is
the Eye of Odin. The female's eyes glow.^

THE FORCE BEHIND
THE EVIL ONSLAUGHT
IS REVEALED :

DEMONA.

WITH THE EYE OF
ODIN IN HER CONTROL
DEMONA IS NEARLY
INVINCIBLE.

BUT GOLIATH KNOWS
HE MUST STOP HER.

***How true is this section to the story of the animated series?

Well in the show Demona does try to kill all the humans and does become an
adversary to Goliath. However she never actually dons the Eye of Odin and she
never unleashes a horde of robots upon Manhattan. Also in the show they
actually explain why Demona doesn't like humans, how she survived 1000 years,
and why she hates Goliath. I guess the developers of the game didn't want to
add too much 'filler' because it might complicate their GIANT PLOT HO- err
story.***

--Goliath battles Demona and the Eye of Odin defeating them both.--

^Goliath appears gliding above Manhattan with his wings unfurled and the sun
about to dawn in the background.^

DEMONA AND THE
EYE OF ODIN HAVE
BEEN DEFEATED.
EVIL HAS BEEN
VANQUISHED.
<text fades>

AND AN ANCIENT
SENTINEL HAS
BECOME A NEW HERO.
<the credits roll-- at last>

***How true is this section to the story of the animated series?

Here's what this story has in common with the cartoon:
-Goliath is in it
-Demona is in it
-The Eye of Odin is in it
-Vikings attack Castle Wyvern
-Goliath sleeps for 1000 years due to a spell and awakes in Manhattan

Everything else is an original idea by the game's designers and sadly the ideas
aren't very good. None of the other interesting characters of the Gargoyle
universe are introduced and no explanations are given as to why the Eye of Odin
behaves as it does, why Demona does what she does and why Goliath awoke in the
first place.

I'm surprised because it seems like the game designers watched the show
intently but ignored the better aspects of it. The Eye of Odin is not in every
episode and the robot Gargoyles are clearly a knock off of the Steel Clan. Plus
Goliath is called a 'Sentinel' which he is also called in one episode fittingly
called 'Sentinel.' It appears that this is another one of those old games that
just attached a licence to its name and expected to sell.***

II. CONTROLS

The basic controls, as listed in the Options menu, are:
A = Throw
B = Claw/Slash
c = Jump/Flap

It takes a little while to get used to the controls because this platformer is
not a standard jump and punch game. Goliath interacts heavily with the game's
environment.

C + B (while in the air) = Jump Attack
C + A (while in the air) = Dive Attack (useful in breaking ground barriers)
Run = over on the joystick. It takes some room.
Run + B = Dive Roll (useful in breaking wall barriers)
Up on joystick = The screen will move up, allowing you to see the terrain above
you
Down on joystick = The screen will move down, allowing you to see the terrain
below you
Climb = Jump onto certain types of walls and ceilings and Goliath will latch
on. Hit up to climb up the wall or down to slide down it. To get off slide to
the bottom or jump off.

III. WALKTHROUGH

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Level 1- Evil Awakens
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The first level is what you'd expect. Easy bad guys and plenty of pick ups.
Once you learn the controls, which walls Goliath can break and which walls he
can climb you should have no problem with this level until the last little
jumping section at the end.

Screen 1

To your left is an invincibility pick up. Either grab it and fight the
approaching enemy or throw him for the instant kill.

RED MACE SWINGER: Basic enemy. Easy to kill with throw. Stand outside of his
range and press the A button. If you are too close when you hit throw, the
enemy will hit you first and stun you. Can also be beaten with a few slashes.
The easiest way to kill these Vikings is to stand still and wait for him to
approach you. Hit A when he gets in range.

SILVER DISC: Grants Goliath invincibility for a short time (your life bar will
begin flashing)

Move right and avoid the falling catapult shots. When you see the stone
obstruction jump over them and flap to avoid the fire balls. Jump onto the wall
and climb up. If you want life climb up the stone tower and destroy the three
Archers. At the top level is a full life pick up.

ARCHER: Fires arrows at Goliath. Takes only one swipe to kill. Arrows are
annoying when they hit you mid jump but they do give you another mid air flap
when hit.

SMALL GOLDEN GOBLET: Restores a small amount of life

LARGE GOLDEN GOBLET: Completely restores life

Drop down and fight the next enemy. Use throw to kill the Viking and you'll get
a Large Golden Goblet.

AXE THROWER: In addition to its up close swings this enemy will throw an
annoying long range axe which comes back to it. Get close enough to it that it
begins to swipe at you and hit A. The key to Throwing someone is to stand the
proper distance away. Remember that the hit detection of this game is poor so
you don't need to be too close to defeat an enemy. You can also defeat this
enemy with numerous swipes.

Climb up the wall and Jump onto the platform. Jump and flap over the spikes and
then fall, collecting the Small Golden Goblets if you need the health. At the
bottom move slightly to the right to get a running start and then DIVE ROLL
into the wall to your left. Move all the way to the left and collect an extra
life.

DIVE ROLL (Run+B) and DIVE ATTACK (Jump+A) are needed to break walls, floors
and other structures that impede Goliath. Recognize what Goliath can break so
that you can get more pick ups and more easily navigate your way through the
level.

Move right out of the structure and latch onto the tower's wall. Climb up to
the top and Jump and Flap right to grab the pick up.

GOLIATH HEAD: This pick up gives you another life

Drop down and move right, jumping and ducking to avoid the flaming log
projectiles. When you reach the shooter climb up the wall and grab the pick up.
At the top will be an Axe Thrower. DIVE ROLL the wall to your right and then
DIVE ATTACK the ground to advance. Another Axe Thrower will be waiting for you.
DIVE ROLL the wall to your left. Move to the far left for a Large Golden Goblet
and grab the Disc. DIVE ATTACK the floor. A Mace Swinger will be meet your
arrival. Move right, defeat the next Mace Swinger and advance to the next
screen.

Screen 2

Jump straight up and grab onto the wall. Move up for a Small Golden Goblet and
drop back down again. To your right you'll notice a large wooden thing with a
chain attached to it and a gate. If Goliath grabs onto the wooden thing or
climbs on top of it, it will lower and the gate will raise. Hooray for pulleys!
Jump up for another pick up and move right. Stand on top of the wooden block
and raise the gate run off it and DIVE ROLL under the gate, killing the archer
in the process. Move right avoiding the falling drips and duck under the gate.

Jump up to grab a life pick up. Move all the way right and climb up the tower.
A flame ball will strike the tower from the outside, stopping you from
ascending. Jump to the other side while avoiding the hurtful drips. Jump back
to the right to avoid the flame on the wall then back to the left.
Move up and jump to the right, climb up and attack the Viking.

VIKING POT MASTER: This Viking really likes his pot. He spends his whole life
with a large bowl and drops the bowl's resin onto climbing Gargoyles. This guy
is always high. High up on the screen that is. He'll drop stuff from his high
vantage point. The bowl is always smoking and because of its hallucigenic
properties the Viking can't tell when you're nearby. Once you reach him he dies
in one slash. He allegedly follows the Eye of Odin because it's "Far out" and
"Trippy."

Move left and fall down, collecting the goblets. To the left is a Mace Swinger.
Further left is a catapult. Jump on it to be launched to a higher catapult. Use
that one to launch yourself left or jump and flap left. Drop down and fight the
Mace Swinger. DIVE ROLL the wall to your left then exit move back right and
climb up the wall. Grab the Silver Disc, drop back down and move through the
wall you broke. Climb up quickly and kill the Pot Masters. DIVE ROLL to the
right and climb up the right wall, avoiding the drips. Kill the Pot Master.

You'll notice a breakable wall to your right but the platform you're on doesn't
extend all that way. Don't worry you can still DIVE ROLL that wall just do it
from the platform and you'll extend the roll into the wall. There will be a
Mace Swinger, an Axe Thrower and an Archer on the other side. Jump to the left
over the Mace Swinger and dispatch of him first. Move right and jump over the
Axe Thrower and take out the Archer. If you throw the Axe wielder to death
you'll sometimes get a Large Goblet. Move to the right, avoid the drip and
climb up the wall. Kill the Pot Master and move left.

You can go two ways here. You can move to the left, fight an Axe Thrower, DIVE
ROLL into a wall, and fight a Mace Swinger and another Axe Thrower. Or you can
latch onto the wall above the Pot Master--beneath the spikes--and jump and flap
your way onto a platform. Once you reach that platform (either way) jump to the
right. Move right, kill the Archer and get the Large Golden Goblet. Now move
right to exit the screen.

Screen 3

Jump up to get a goblet. Move right, destroy the Pot Master and jump onto the
wooden block. Run off it and dive under the gate. Climb up the right wall,
dispatching of the Archer when you reach the top. DIVE ATTACK the ground to the
left, DIVE ROLL the wall to the left. Climb up the wall, jumping back and forth
to avoid the stationary flames. Two Axe Throwers await at the top. Climb up on
the wall and then the ceiling to reach a small goblet. Then go right and pass
under the arch and climb up the wall. At the top is a goblet. Move to the left
and DIVE ROLL to get invincibility. Destroy the Archers by getting to the
platforms beneath them and then jump-flap-swipe them to death, landing on the
platform you jumped from.

On the first ledge on the right side you'll notice a free guy trapped behind a
breakable wall. However there isn't enough space to get a running start to DIVE
ROLL instead move up and to the left and DIVE ROLL from that opening, hurling
your way across the screen into the wall. When you reach the top you'll get to
the most entertaining part of the level.

DIVE ATTACK the wall to the right to grab a small goblet. Your objective now is
to climb up the walls, avoiding the flaming log projectiles. Jump on the right
wall and climb up, avoid the log and position yourself above the impact spot of
the left log launcher and beneath the right log launcher. Wait for the log to
fire and jump to the left wall. Position yourself in a similar fashion, above
the impact spot but below the launcher. Wait for the log to fire, jump flap to
the right and climb up the wall. This next jump is a little different because
you can grab onto the wall beneath the impact spot. Jump to the left and grab
on. Position yourself just below the impact spot. This part takes good timing.
Right after the log impacts and the other launcher fires, climb up and jump
flap to the right. Quickly climb up a slight distance (if needed). You have a
small area to position yourself in--once again above the impact spot, below the
launcher. Jump to the left after the launcher above you fires. Delay your flap
slightly so that the launcher on the left doesn't hit you mid flight and so
that you don't run into the spikes on the left wall (keep your altitude
constant). Position yourself in the familiar area. After the log fires, jump to
the right, climb up and left on the ceiling, jump flap yourself to the left
wall and jump right onto the rampart. DIVE ATTACK from the platform to the left
to break a wall and get a Large Goblet. Move right to reach the boss.

RE-FLAP: When Goliath is damaged in the air he gets another flap. Use this flap
to your advantage, don't fall all the way... fool!

Final Boss: Lightning Strike

This boss is very easy to defeat. His movement pattern is basic. He'll teleport
to a platform near to you and either swing his hammer or summon some lightning
from the sky to hit you. Simply move to the ground beneath the lowest platform
and use a Jump Attack right as he appears. Aim for his feet and he'll
dissappear when you swipe him. He'll then try to teleport to the exact same
spot. Repeat until he his dead. I suggest standing slightly to the left of the
platform so if jump to high by accident you won't accidentally reach the
platform and break the loop.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Level 2- Siege of the Rookery
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The bad guys are still the easy and pick ups are readily available. A few more
wrinkles have been added, most notably Goliath's ability to grab onto something
and swing his way higher. Lots of fire to dodge but the boss is the easiest in
the game. After you get the hang of jumping from thing to thing you will look
back on this level with the fondest of memories. You'll recall the time when
the Viking didn't want to go swimming so you playfully picked him up and threw
him into the lava. Ahhh he twitched for hours.

Screen 1

TO FIGHT OR RUN, THAT IS THE QUESTION: For the first two levels I'd recommend
fighting pretty much everything you see until you get a feel for the controls
and the level. Later on though I'd recommend running from all the bad guys,
except for the ones that are in key areas (a platform that you'll fall down to
repeatedly, near a wall you have to break etc.). Sometimes the bad guys drop
good pick ups that give you life or a free guy so there is some incentive to
fighting.

Goliath will fall down between an Axe Thrower and a Mace Swinger. Press right
as you fall to avoid the Thrower and jump over the Swinger's head. Notice that
if you throw the Mace Swinger into the lava he'll twitch for a long time. Avoid
the lava it hurts you. Mover right and jump flap onto the ceiling crawl across
it. Dodge the fire balls.

You'll notice a fire ball launching up at a spiked contraption. If you jump at
the contraption when it is closed you'll grab on and swing yourself, if it's
open the spikes will hurt you. Time your jump swing across and grab onto the
chain. That chain will trigger a fire vent which will propel you up the level.
Later you pull chains that deactivate the vents so that you can fall. A Mace
Swinger will be under the chain.

Let the vent push you up the shaft and flap to reach the left wall. Climb up
and either jump right and kill the Archer or move left. Let the vent push you
up and flap up to the wall. Grab on and climb, kill the Archer on the left and
then the Axe Thrower and Mace Swinger on the right. Pull the chain and drop
down to where the vent was. Two Axe Throwers, a Mace Swinger and an Archer
await. If you want to run from them jump over them and stand where the fireball
launcher is. When it releases a plume of smoke straight up jump and let the
draft force you upwards.

SWINGER: You can grab an object that allows you to swing from two side, the
right and the left. Grabbing from the right will swing Goliath to the left and
vice versa. Sometime it's best to grab something from one side, swing to the
other and grab it from the other side so that you can glide the other way. Kind
of complicated but you'll understand when you play.

Here you'll have to swing from spike to spike grabbing on when the things are
closed. Jump flap to the one on the right and swing flap to the chain. Swing
yourself on the chain repeatedly until the next contraption has closed. Then
flap your way onto it and swing flap yourself to the right (you may need to
swing left on that thing and then grab it again and swing back to the right).
Grab onto that last one and swing flap your way to the platform. If you want
you can jump flap your way to the last thing, swing left and grab the wall.
Climb up it and you'll see a Sparkling Goblet. Jump to get and flap back to the
platform.

SPARKLING GOBLET: The properties of this goblet are mysterious and known only
to a few hardy souls. Maybe one day I'll be one of them.

Move right and grab onto the spike and swing your way to the disc. Grab it and
move rightly as fast as possible, staying low to the ground. Kill the Axe
Thrower and pull the chain. Wait for the fire ball to rise up and jump flap
your way left onto the large thing hanging from the ceiling. Wait for the
spikes to close and then jump right and swing your way to the Large Golden
Goblet--and the next screen.

Screen 2

Wait until the Mace Swinger approaches. Throw him for the easy kill. Move right
and swing yourself across the gap. Kill the Archer and pull the chain, move
left and drop down the hole. To the right is an Axe Thrower and four Small
Golden Goblets. You should have full life so it's not really worth getting them.

Jump left onto the second set of closing spikes and swing over to the chain.
Pull on it and swing right. Drop down to where the deactivated vent was. Go
right and swing flap your way across the two traps, kill the Archer and pull
the chain. Drop down to where the deactivated vent way. There is Mace Swinger
under the second trap so be careful if you fall, 'cuz you know you might have
to kick his ass or something.

After you drop move under the steel pincers. To your right will be an Archer
and the vent you need to deactivate, to the left will be the deactivation
chain. Jump to the left and flap to grab onto the ceiling. Work your way
across, dodging the two fire launchers and pull the chain. Crawl back, go to
the right and drop.

FLAP GRAB- Ceilings cannot be grabbed with just a jump. A flap and up on the
controller must accompany the jump.

To your right will be a solitary Archer anxious to get killed. Don't disappoint
him. Now run left and time your jump onto the trap so that the trap is open and
the Archer won't shoot you. Kill him and pull the chain, drop down the chute.
Move to the right, swing across the lava pit and go on to the next screen.

Screen 3

Go right and grab the goblets and the invincibility disc. Move back right and
quickly grab onto the chandalier. The challenge here is to swing from
chandalier to chandelier, avoiding the fireball that will knock you off. both
side of the chandelier can be latched onto and the bottom will allow you to
swing off of it. While invincible quickly swing from chandelier to chandelier
and swing from the third one to the platform. If you jump up on the wall you
can progress through the level or you can go get a secret life and some
goblets. Grab onto the left side of the third chandelier and jump flap yourself
up and to the right. You'll grab onto a slight under hang which will allow you
to climb up. Climb up, move to the right and jump flap all the way left when
you reach the end. Kill the Archer--one can only wonder what he was doing
here--get the free guy and move right to get a small goblet. Climb back to
where the free guy was and run jump and flap as far as you can to the right. A
good jump will get you to the hidden passage. Follow it to the chandalier and
move on.

Climb up the wall and keep moving right. Drop down to the ledge that is even
with the next chandalier. If you fall from these chandeliers you won't die but
you might land in a lava pit. There are also a few small golden goblets down
there if you really need the life. Fire balls will shoot up on the right side
of the first two chandeliers. Make your move right after they leave. The third
chandelier is fireball free. Swing your way to its right side and time you jump
to the steel trap. Swing flap your way off the trap to the fourth chandelier.
If you move to the right side of the chandalier two Archers will shoot you.
They might hit you mid air, which could cause you to fall so watch out. Either
jump up and to the right to try to reach the ledge with the Large Golden Goblet
and one Archer or jump to the right and go to the next screen--the boss screen.
Remember if an arrow hits you, Goliath can flap again.

I suggest swinging off the bottom of the chandalier and killing the Archer on
the lower platform. That way you can jump back to the chandalier and now only
have to worry about one Archer. Climb all the way up the right side of the
chandalier and jump flap your way to the upper ledge. Swipe the Archer and take
his sweet booty for your own--his treasure that is. Goliath is only interested
in female human booty. You probably won't need this life for the boss (he's
pretty easy) but your life gauge carries over from level to level. Even levels
that are 1000 years apart.

Final Boss: MC Hammer

Usually bosses get harder as the level progresses but not him. He has a large
hammer. I presume that if you get hit by it, it will hurt but I wouldn't know.
Jump right next to him and tap B as fast as you can. The boss will be too busy
getting stunned to attack back. Also if you remain on the platform where you
start he'll hit his hammer against the ground causing  part of the floor to
drop, killing you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Level 3- Stone and Steel
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You slept for 1000 years and still have the same life you did in Scotland. For
some reason you're in New York and for some reason you've woken up.
Explanations? Please there's a flying eye to catch, no time for explanations.
Man I hate this game.

Screen 1

Here we go again! Climb the wall on your left and grab the shiny goblet. Now
move right. 1000 years later there's nothing to worry about right? The Eye of
Odin has obviously moved onto to bigger and eviler things right? Everything is
peaceful in the year 1994, so Goliath goes to check out the museum... oh no!
The Eye! And now it has the power to summon even more powerful creatures (maybe
he was saving them for later).

If you drop into the gap where the eye popped out of there is a small goblet.
From here on out I suggest running from everything that can't be killed in one
swipe--unless they're alone or in a crucial area--but if you insist:

MECHANICAL HYENA: This creature will die from a single throw but it's hard to
get that throw. If you move to close he'll either set up his electric fence or
fire a blast at you. If you wait for him to come to you he'll sometimes jump on
and drain your life but that's still the best strategy (waiting for him to
approach you not the life draining thing).

Keep moving right and you'll see a:

MECHANICAL COCKROACH: One swipe to kill. These guys are the more mobile cousins
of the Archer.

Either drop down and move right, dispatching the Hyena and DIVE ROLLING into an
apartment for a goblet or cut straight to the chase and jump on the platform.
Kill the Cockroach that is hanging from the next platform then grab onto it and
crawl across. Go on top of that platform and kill the other bug if you want
some goblets. Jump to the right and grab onto the top of that light post--it
functions as a swing--and swing you way across. Waiting will be:

PISTOL FEET: This guy is the tougher more mobile cousin of the Archer. He takes
only 3-4 swings to kill which can be had pretty easily on this guy. However his
blast packs a wallop and will leave a mark. Throw him for a One Hit Knock Out.

Move right and bust down the wall. Three Hyenas will be waiting. Lure them out
into the open one at a time and throw them. Once defeated DIVE ROLL the wall on
the other side of the apartment. There you'll encounter a:

FLYING MACHINA: This is the Archer's flying cousin. One or two swipes will
knock this bad boy out but he won't leave you any goblets. Most of the time
this type of bad guy appears from a certain hole which never runs out of
machina.

Remember how the Eye of Odin busted out of the museum ceiling window? Well
Goliath is going to be even cooler and bust into it. Use the DIVE ATTACK to
break the window and drop. At the bottom DIVE ROLL left and run through the
building to get the pick up.

SPARKLING GOLIATH HEAD: I could tell you what this did but then I'd have to
kill you. Then I'd probably feel bad so I'd find out what it does and leave you
a note or something. Don't worry though I'd take care of you
wife/mom/girlfriend/underage sister free of charge.

Go back right and break through the wall. Climb up the wall to the left and
slide back down--there's nothing up there. Move right and you'll see Odin's
eye. He'll drop two sparkly things which will turn into Hyenas. Since you know
this stand in Throw range of one so as soon as it becomes a Hyena you can off
it. Move right and grab the lamppost jutting from the wall. Swing your way up
to the platform which will be occupied by a Hyena. Right above you will be a
full life Goblet. Jump up and grab onto the pole that's coming out of the wall
(it'll have a black flag hanging from it). Swing left to get the goblet, swing
right to go to the next screen.

Screen 2

DIVE ATTACK the glass and drop down. DIVE ROLL right to break the wall. You'll
notice a red set of pipes on the ground. Take note of these things. Hitting
them will unleash a blast of gas that will send you up. Later you'll have to
hit these things in mid air to climb higher. Smash the wall to your right to
grab a pick up then break the pipes and glide up. On top of the building the
Eye will drop two more Hyenas. Dispatch or run move right and DIVE ATTACK the
glass. Break the wall and kill the two Cockroaches. Further up on the right
wall will be a third one. Climb up on the left one till you see the roach then
jump over and destroy him. Ascend the right wall till you come to the lights.
Grab the light and swing up onto the platform, another Cockroach will come down.

PIPE SWINGING: Level 3 and 5 will have many pipes to swing from. It is not as
simple as jumping near them at grabbing on--you have to make contact with a
specific spot. Learn where the spot is to increase your swinging ability.

The next challenge is to swing far to the left from light to light avoiding the
Flying Machina. When you reach the platform kill the machina and jump up to
where Pistol Feet is waiting. Take him out and jump right on the light posts.
You'll see a glass window, DON'T BREAK IT. It's a trick run right pass it and
jump to the right. A Large Golden Goblet will be waiting. Get it and drop down
and break the next glass window. At the bottom you can dive left and get a
goblet (which you don't need since you have full life) or go right and into the
next screen.

Screen 3

The Eye will drop two more Hyenas. Use the same strategy and ambush one as soon
as it appears. Grab the lowest light and swing flap over to the platform. Grab
the next lamppost and swing flap straight up to the next lamp. Swing from the
left to the right to reach the platform. I recommend waiting at each platform,
taking care of the machina and then moving on to the next platform. Jump left
onto the lamp, swing to the pole and swing flap from left to right on it to the
next pole. Swing flap up and swing flap left to the next platform. Grab the
lamp and swing up to the large platform, just in time for the eye to drop a
couple of Hyenas. Kill these and break the red gas pipes.

Use the gas to fly up and at the peak of your push flap and grab onto the
light. Swing left and grab onto to pipe, propel yourself up, grab the light and
swing onto the platform. Take care of good ole' Pistol Feet. Here it gets a
little tricky. You'll have to break the gas pipe mid air. Swing from the lamp
and give it a good swipe. If you fall you only have to do a small part over.
The key to triggering them mid air is to land on them and swipe right when
you're about to land on it (you can't actually land on it). The gas will send
you up right under a pipe. Flap and grab it and swing right over the next pipe.
Burst this with a swipe and this will send you straight up into a platform. You
can grab the bottom of the platform but a Cockroach will shoot a good portion
of life from you. Instead don't grab onto the platform until you swipe the
roach. Keep using the gas to push you up. Once latched on, shimmy left and grab
the lamp at the left corner of the platform. Use it to swing you on top where
the Eye of Odin is waiting once again.

Ambush the Hyena's and grab the light, swing up left, up and to the right onto
a platform with Pistol Feet. Trigger the gas to your left (from the platform)
and move on up. Latch onto the bottom of the ledge and prepare to grab the
light and swing up. You have to time it so that you don't get hit too badly by
the two Pistol Feet's projectiles. Depending on your life you'll either want to
kill the two Feet and get the large goblet or get the goblet and then kill the
feet. Go to the smaller platform on the right, jump  swing and jump to the next
pole and swing over to the gas pipes. Trigger it and you'll be sent to the roof
of the building. Dispatch the Cockroach. You'll see the Eye of Odin dart into a
glass window--follow if you dare.

                             *****WARNING*****

You might want to go to the bathroom before you fight this guy. It could be a
little embarrassing if you emptied your bowels in your pants.

Final Boss: Elevator Odin

I always wondered who would win in a fight: a Viking or an Elevator. Finally I
have the answer to the question. When the Eye possess a Viking he's easy, but
when it possess an elevator--watch out.

This boss is hard until you learn how to not fall off the elevator. The boss
has four arms, two at the top and one on each side. As the fight begins you
have a little time before the Eye of Odin corrupts this poor innocent elevator.
Hop down to a side underneath the poking arm and slash when the arm emerges 4-5
good swipes will blow up the arm. Periodically the Eye will unleash green
bursts that can knock you off the elevator. Just make sure you are pressing
towards the Eye when the burst comes. That way you'll latch onto the wall as
soon as you fall off. Now take out the arm on the other side and dispatch the
two on the top. The Eye's electrical bursts are easy to predict, each is
accompanied by a swirling of the Eye.

The ceiling breaks and Goliath can now become Optometrist Goliath M.D. Dr.
Goliath prescribes heavy dosages of slash with the occasional run to the lower
left corner and duck when the Eye pusses hurtful green balls.

Level 4- Subterranean Terror
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ah this level is easy. A new tough bad guy is introduced and he may be
stronger, tougher and have more versatile attacks than Goliath but he doesn't
have Goliath's ability to flee.

Screen 1

This level takes place on a moving train. Move right and you'll encounter the
hardest regular bad guy of all:

SPANKY: I call him this not because he really is a Spanky or is weak in any
way. I call him this because it's really the only thing I can do. If this guy
and Goliath stood next to each other and went blow for blow Spanky would win.
Add to that his ability to throw fireballs and a sweet dash attack...
This guy should most definitely be run from. The only way I've seen to beat him
without losing a whole lot of life is to stand at the edge of your slash range
and hit B as fast as you can. Eventually he'll stop being stunned and swipe
back at you but since you're so far away you'll re-stun him before it hits.

Jump pass him and you can break the train's ceiling and go left. There will be
a Spanky and a Large Goblet at the end but if you don't have a lot of life
Spanky will probably kill you and if you do have a lot of life why would you
need the pick up? I'd go right instead. However pay note to this: as soon as
you go from the second train car to the third a wooden thing will come rushing
at you. Dodge this by ducking or take one on the chin and lose some life.
They'll come by periodically. Duck and wait and when one comes move and then
duck and wait again. At the next car the wooden things will stop coming but a
Pistol Feet will be waiting. You can no longer go right because some electrical
thing (which is obviously is made of that material that strangely passes
through wood but doesn't let Gargoyles through. You know what I'm talking
about... it's... called... something like... oh yeah it's called bull****).
Break the ceiling and enter the train.

Go left and blow through a door and jump over a pit to reach a small goblet
which isn't worth it. However the Hyena that's in the train will follow you and
fall down the pit. That way you'll be unimpeded when you go back right and DIVE
ROLL the train door. Next stop Screen 2, please stand clear of the closing
doors.

Screen 2

Jump through the ceiling, blow up the Flying Machina and move left to get a
small goblet. To the right will be another Spanky and at the third train more
wooden things will come at you. Now there is a twist though. In between the
wooden things metal pipes will come. You have to duck under the wood and jump
the pipes. Drop down into the first available train and go left to get a free
guy. A Hyena will be waiting but you can DIVE ROLL past him pretty easily. Jump
out and duck into the next train (you can destroy the Cockroach and grab the
goblet above the train if you need the life). Proceed right and DIVE ROLL past
the Hyena into the next screen.

Screen 3

A pit will welcome you. Jump flap over it and jump to the top of the train. If
you have enough life you won't need to worry about the wood and pipes because a
Large Golden Goblet rests a few trains up. If you don't you'll probably want to
dodge those. Also you can go through the train's cars if you'd like but there
are a few guys and some pits to fall into. Drop down after getting the goblet
and jump flap over the pit. Quickly run right past the Spanky and DIVE ROLL to
the bosses.

Final Boss: Steel Clan

Not much strategy here. The Black Steel Clan machines can be taken out pretty
easily but there are six of them. Stay close to them and swipe at them before
they can do their powerful charge attack. Occasionally they'll drop grenades on
you but they aren't much to worry about and take a while to detonate. The
charge attack will take a significant amount of life but it takes some time for
them to set up. Before doing it they'll disengage from slash range and line
themselves up from you on the same vertical height. Simply move to another
height and they'll miss. However Goliath can't jump when he's slashing so don't
go overboard with his slashes. Be conservative with the B button--as long as
you don't get hit with a charge attack you'll probably win.

The Red Clan leader is easy. Slashing him will stun him and make him unable to
attack. If he escapes being dazed run away from him and then ambush him when he
pursues. Once again the one handed flying charge attack is the only attack of
any consequence.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Level 5- The Forge
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think they realized that the last level was easy and made this level super
hard to make up for it. There are of interesting interactions with the
environment in this level, none of which make sense but all of which piss me
off. You'll die more times here than you did on the rest of the levels
combined. Then you'll discover what you're supposed to be doing in the level
and you'll still die a bunch of times. And the last boss... ugh.

Screen 1

Advance right and jump from conveyor belt to belt. Jump over Spanky and flap to
the wall. Latch on and climb up. A Cockroach will be waiting for you so you
want to quickly climb up and jump to the next belt. A Pistol and a Spanky will
be waiting. Keep running left. On the far wall dispatch the Cockroach and climb
up. You might notice that on spaced in between some of the belts are small
pits. If you fall into one of these you'll lose life. I guess it's some sort of
blender pits. That makes sense because in most factories the conveyor belts
lead directly to something that will destroy the object that was just made.
Jump right and dodge the rocks that fall out of the large pipe. Keep running,
jumping and dodging rocks till you reach the part of this level that pisses me
off the most.

Throughout the level or 'La Forge'--as it prefers to be called--will be many
walls that Goliath can sink his claws into. However if Goliath latches onto
said wall flame jets will emerge and blast him. He can touch the walls just not
latch on to them. He can also safely pass by the wall as long as he is riding
on whatever elaborate contraption the game has in mind for him. The people who
made this game are lucky I didn't get it 10 years ago when I could find out
where they worked and lived. I have no chance of doing so now because after
this shipwreck the most certainly got fired and probably beaten.

Well I guess I'll play by their rules and stop my vague threats. At the end of
the belt you'll see a flame jet and a slowly descending lift. Duck under the
jet and fall onto the lift. It'll take you down while you dodge flames until it
descends into a pit of a flame. That makes sense because in most factories
lifts are only used once and descend directly into pits of flame (it keeps the
workers from loitering too long on the lift).

Grab the goblet at the bottom and jump flap right. Jump over Pistol and
continue to the next platform. Make sure Pistol doesn't snipe you and jump over
to the next one. Avoid Spanky and jump flap over to the awaiting Hyenas. Kill
them both (you'll probably be back to this area) and move right. See that large
vat of liquid hot metal? Now you get to grab onto that and go for a ride.
Apparently Goliath can dig his claws into it and not have to worry about the
metal leaking out and burning his hands off. Goliath is a tough guy but liquid
metal killed the T-1000 and the T-1000 was most definitely hardcore.

The vat challenge is simple. There are three positions on the vat: right side,
left side and bottom. Move Goliath from side to side so that he can avoid the
exploding furnaces which are clearly in the background but still hurt. Here's
the pattern you'll want to follow: right side, bottom, right side, bottom,
right side, bottom, right side, bottom, left side, bottom. There may be one too
many right side, bottom but you get the idea. At the end you must be on the
bottom or the vat will rub you against the side of something and knock you off.
If the furnace explodes on you, Goliath will fall and either die or land on a
platform below. He'll have to do the vat part over again. When the vat nears
the top jump off it to the right and pick up the goblet. Move right and evade
tiny, jump to the next conveyor and jump flap latch your self onto the steel
ceiling. Climb right and time your movements so that the furnace explosions
don't knock you off. Drop onto the platform and jump flap you way to the final
bos- err screen 2.

Screen 2

See that goblet above that suspicious looking lift? DON'T JUMP ON IT. TURN OFF
YOUR GENESIS AND GO DO SOMETHING ELSE. Alright you've been warned. That lift
does something that I've never seen done in a video game. For some reason when
Goliath is hurt on that lift, the lift will stop supporting him and he'll fall.
No the lift doesn't turn upside down or flip down it just stops supporting him.
I have no idea why. Jump over the flames that the lift brings you near. The
jumps are pretty easy if you add a flap to it. Let the lift take you into the
invincibility disc and carry on. The lift will now go around in circles while
Flying Machina attack you. If you get hit Goliath will drop (mysteriously) and
you'll have to do it all over. Eventually the lift will take Goliath up and to
the right where another lift will be waiting to take him left. Oh you have to
be kidding me! Never mind that part is easy. Using the control pad allows you
to steer the lift. Steer it up and jump onto the next lift which will take you
left. In the lower right screen of this level is a free guy. You can get it or
save it for a bonus in case you fall. As the lift moves left you'll want to
duck the flames and swipe at any approaching robots. Grab the large goblet as
you jump off the platform and go to the next screen

Screen 3

Hop on the lift and duck and jump your way around the exploding furnaces. At
the end jump onto the platform and evade Spanky. Wait for the next lift and
jump onto it. If you fall off your lift in this screen you'll probably die.
Jump, dodge and swipe the machina until you are able to jump to the next lift.
This lift will go straight down so you'll only have a little time to quickly
jump to the next lift which will go straight up and only give you a little time
to jump to the platform. Sweet-stationary-uninhabited-by-the-enemy ground! Jump
flap over to the next moving lift. Here you have a choice. Kill the Pistol legs
or hope that you can dodge their shots. The lift will unexpectedly dump you so
be ready to jump to the second Pistol's platform. Land on his platform and jump
flap off the to the left and into the next screen.

Screen 4

Right as I entered this screen (my first time playing) I said to myself, "You
know what Overated, this level is cool but it could use one thing: a waterfall
of red hot metal with metal pipes sticking out of it." Luckily there is such a
waterfall in this game. I gave myself I high five and quickly gave the pipes a
good jump. Don't bother with the first one, jump flap directly to the second
pipe. Swing flap your way left and then pivot and swing flap you way right.
From here on out you'll want to work quickly as the Flying Machina are going to
be a hassle (if they shoot you though you do get another flap). At the top of
the waterfall swing your way to the right wall and latch on. Quickly climb your
way up. A new vat awaits!

Here you get to go from side to bottom to side on a new vat. The twist is that
the vat tries to rub you off on nearby walls. and if you fall off the vat
flames will activate from the wall and hurt you badly. The flames could
activate at any time and hurt you badly but they won't do so if you're on the
vat. Grab onto the vat's right side and move to the bottom. Move to the left
when the vat reaches the starts going right (this is all about timing which is
tricky to develop in this situation ). Climb to the bottom when the vat moves
up, climb to the right side when it starts to go left. You want to move
slightly later than you'd think but after I told you this you'll probably move
a little later than you'd like to. No easy way out here, you'll have to learn
how to do it. Drop to the bottom, then left side then bottom then left side and
finally bottom. If you fall off here you can either try to catch up to the vat
or go back to the beginning and get a new one. Go to the right side, bottom and
left side. Here's where it you have an option. If you're confident in your vat
riding abilities go bottom, right side bottom. However if you miss the move
from bottom to right you'll fall all the way to the beginning. You can also
just drop off and wait for the vat to make its small loop and jump on the right
side when it comes by and transition to the bottom. Hop off the vat to the
right to go to the next screen or go left and grab a large goblet.

Screen 5

This part is tough. A machine that produces bad guys will block your way. The
only way to get by is to DIVE ROLL it but the enemies will often get in your
way and block you. You have to be quick because it is near impossible to
destroy the machine when a few guys are in your way. The first one is the Hyena
machine. Immediately run right and DIVE ROLL it before it produces a guy. You
can run past a guy--one very good thing about this game is that simply touching
an enemy doesn't hurt you only if they hit you with an attack. Jump right onto
the small platform, jump to the next platform with a Pistol on it, move right
and jump to the pipe and swing yourself up and to the right for the next
platform. Climb down the wall and quickly run right, ignore the furnaces you've
got a machine producer to DIVE ROLL. Jump onto the tiny platform. Jump flap
yourself as far up as you can onto the next wall and quickly climb up before
the Cockroach can hit you. Destroy the two roaches that can interfere and drop
down. You can either quickly DIVE ROLL the Cockroach producing machine or let
it produce a lot or roaches so you can get some life back. Climb up the wall
destroying roaches and move left and drop down. DIVE ROLL the machine.

There is a short cut that you can take here. Jump left onto the platform. The
way you're supposed to go is to the left but to your upper right you'll notice
a periodic flame and a Large Golden Goblet. Time your jump so that you grab
onto the wall right when the flame subsides. Climb up and grab the goblet.
You'll want to do the same to the next wall. Jump right after the flame appears
and quickly climb up. Jump to the conveyor to your left. You'll have to DIVE
ROLL from the conveyor back to your right and take out the machine. At last,
Demona!

Final Boss: Eye of Odin Demona Style

There are three phases to this boss. The first phase is you chasing the Eye up
to a platform. Strike the Eye once and it will explode the structure behind it
and flee upwards. It turns three creatures into large beasts on its way. All
are easy to kill and all will give you full life when defeated. Try to stand on
in between the creatures' legs and head and swipe. The beasts will turn around
more often giving you more chances to slash. The last one is a bit tricky to
get to because sometimes spikes hang from the corner of the ledge and are in
the way. Jump to the left of the spikes then try to flap over them. You won't
make it but hitting the spikes will give you an additional flap. Flap again
quickly and you should be able to reach the third beast.

Now Demona joins the fight. She is just a distraction though. Climb up the wall
opposite of the giant golden protruding gun and jump towards the Eye of Odin.
You'll need to flap to reach the distance and take a swipe at it. Repeat this
until it reaches its third form.

The Eye has merged with Demona, creating a fiery powerful beast. This part is
damn hard. Jump to the walls when the fire rock hits the main platform. Try to
time Demona's comings and goings so you can predict swipe her instead of
waiting to actually see her and doing more of a reactionary swipe. The main
platform is the easiest place to hit Demona but if she charges into you and you
miss your swipe you'll fall off the platform. When falling you'll often flap
your way back up only to be hit by a rock and fall to your death. That's the
easiest way to die so I recommend trying a few things. When you predict swipe
try to jump first and then slash, so if you miss she'll hit you and you'll just
fall to the platform instead of off of it.

The absolute safest, and probably best way to do this, is to climb the walls
and get to the middle of the ceiling. Demona can't hit you in that spot but
you'll be able to see her bounce around. Time your drop so that you fall and
slash her as she flies by. Make sure you land in the middle of the platform
below. For most angles you want to drop as Demona bounces off the side wall.
The best part of this strategy is that if you miss you can latch onto a side
wall, climb to the top and try again without taking any/much damage. It takes
between 10-15 swipes to defeat her.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Level 1- Evil Awakens
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Final Boss: Lightning Strike

This boss is very easy to defeat. His movement pattern is basic. He'll teleport
to a platform near to you and either swing his hammer or summon some lightning
from the sky to hit you. Simply move to the ground beneath the lowest platform
and use a Jump Attack right as he appears. Aim for his feet and he'll
dissappear when you swipe him. He'll then try to teleport to the exact same
spot. Repeat until he his dead. I suggest standing slightly to the left of the
platform so if jump to high by accident you won't accidentily reach the
platform and break the loop.

Usually bosses get harder as the level progresses but not him. He has a large
hammer. I presume that if you get hit by it, it will hurt but I wouldn't know.
Jump right next to him and tap B as fast as you can. The boss will be too busy
getting stunned to attack back. Also if you remain on the platform where you
start he'll hit his hammer against the ground causing  part of the floor to
drop, killing you.

V. Information on 'Gargoyles' the Animated Series

It is the hope of all 'Gargoyles' fans that one day the show will be reborn and
that Greg Weisman, Michael Reeves and the others who did such great work with
the original series will get another chance. A possible live action movie has
also been mentioned. It is very unlikely though that either of those things
will happen. However that doesn't mean that you can't still enjoy the show and
relive memories with fans. Here are some sites to help you keep the 'Gargoyles'
flame alive.

http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/

Here you can ask Greg Weisman, one of the creators of 'Gargoyles' questions
about the show or browse through the already answered questions.

http://www.gatheringofthegargoyles.com/

Every year 'Gargoyles' fans get together to talk about the show, meet members
of the cast and have a rockin' time (so I hear). This year's gathering is in
Montreal. Find out more by checking out that link.

http://www.animatedbliss.com/news.asp?TID=14

Gargoyles Season 1 on DVD will be released sometime in 2004. For the latest
