Welcome to another FAQ of mine. This one covers the GameBoy game Cutthroat
Island, a game based on one of the more stereotypical views of pirates in the
colonial time period - swashbuckling treasure-seekers who let nothing stand in
their way.

Huh. Kinda like Pirates of the Caribbean minus Jack Sparrow.

Yeah, I don't have much to say about this; not real good with this, you know.
But try to enjoy.

--------
Controls
--------

Fighting moves will be discussed soon enough. These are quick generalizations:

~~ D-Pad        : Move around; jump/double jump (Up); duck (Down); fighting.
~~ A Button     : Fighting.
~~ B Button     : Fighting.
~~ Start Button : Pause/unpause.
~~ Select Button: N/A.
~~ L/R Buttons  : These only have functions on the GBA SP and GameBoy Player
                  ways of playing the game. They will widen/narrow the screen,
                  respectively. Otherwise, N/A.

There also is a soft reset combination that lets you return to the title
screen - A+B+Start+Select.

Fighting in itself is a bit more specific. Note that anytime I mention Up,
Left, Right, or Down, it's a direction on the D-Pad.

Also note that "->" indicates a button combo. "+" indicates that they should be
pressed together or the first one should be held.

~~ A = Standard sword slice.

~~ A -> A -> A = Sword combo.

~~ B = Kick.

~~ B -> B -> B = Kick combo.

~~ Down + B = Sweeping kick.

~~ Down + A = Uppercut slice.

~~ Right -> Right -> A = Sword thrust. (Can use Left or Right.)

~~ Up + Left = Backflip. (Use Right for a frontflip.) (You can attack with A.)

~~ Down -> A = Pick up and throw object.


----------------
Playing the Game
----------------

Whereas the fighting is complex, the actual gameplay is far from it.

In each level, you'll fight a bunch of enemies and need to kill them. That's
the gist of it. However, you also want to avoid their attacks.

That's what the health bar in the top-left corner of the screen is for:
measuring your health. (The right health bar is for your enemies, but rarely
actually seems to do anything.) If your health bar empties, you lose a life
and have to start the level over. You can refill health by grabbing
bottle-necked containers. If you lose all of your lives, you get a Game Over.
You may continue from the level you lost on; note, however, that your number
of continues is limited.

Other than the fighting moves, mentioned in the previous sub-section, I'm
actually quite done. After defeating enough enemies in one part of a level,
you'll need to go right to fight more. Once you fight off all of the enemies,
you'll get bonus points depending on your attack accuracy and health remaining,
as well as grabbing certain items, then you'll continue to the next level.
