 01. Introduction
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
 01a. Game Info
===============================================================================

Name         -  King Kong 2 - Yomigaeru Densetsu
                (Translated it means: King Kong 2 - The Reviving Legend)
Year         -  1986
System       -  MSX2
Publisher    -  Konami / Shochiku-Fuji / De Laurentiis Entertainment Group Inc.
Format       -  MegaROM (1MBIT) Rom Cartridge (Konami RC 745)
Sound        -  PSG
Genre        -  RPG/Adventure
Language     -  Japanese
                Konami officially only released this game in japanese language.
Translations -  English
                In 1987 Korean publisher Zemina did a bootleg release which was
                translated to english. Based on some screenshots i saw the
                translation was pretty bad.
             -  French
                A group called V.O.S.T.F. translated the game to French.
             -  English
                In 2000 Imanok (David Fernandez) created an english translation
                based on the french translation.
             -  English Re-translation
                In 2005 Imanok did an english re-translation based on the
                original japanese version because he found out that the french
                translation was completely made up! Django made some
                improvements to this version.
             -  Spanish
                In 2012 Pablibiris did a Spanish translation based on the
                english re-translation by Imanok and Django. Django also made
                some improvements to this version.
             -  English & Spanish "Ultimate Translation"
                In 2012 Manuel Pazos managed to disassemble to whole game and
                together with Imanok (who provided all translations) decided
                to create the "ultimate translation" of King Kong 2 once and
                for all. Complete with rebuild and translated title graphics,
                a load of bugfixes and even added the mysterious SWORD item
                to be used in the game! The ultimate translation is available
                in English and Spanish both with the same improvements and
                changes.


===============================================================================
 01b. FAQ Introduction
===============================================================================

I decided to create this FAQ because after nearly 20 years after its release
this game still holds me in his grip everytime I play it. It is so addictive
I decided to gather all information known about this game and put it all in
one big FAQ. Because I couldn't find one single complete walkthrough I created
it from scratch. This FAQ will mostly be read by people who already finished
it once or almost in the past and start to replay it and get stuck
(it happened to me too). The first time I finished this game was about a month
after its release after countless of hours behind my MSX2 and countless
sleepless nights figuring out how to solve the puzzles. It was so damn hard
because I couldn't understand the japanese language. Now with the english
re-translation it's much easier. If you play this game for the first time you
have yourself a great time. I hope you like it as much as I do.


===============================================================================
 01c. Story
===============================================================================

You are Mitchel. You start the game getting off a boat in the lands of Golnebo.
Your mission is to find LADY KONG. She is KING KONG's only hope for survival.
KING KONG was shot and desperately needs a blood transfusion in order to have
an artificial heart implanted. On your way you will have to solve many riddles
and puzzles. Natives who live in cabins throughout the land will give you tips
to help you solve them. You will also encounter many enemies and bosses. Deal
with them before they can deal with you. Good luck!


===============================================================================
 01d. Movie Comparisons
===============================================================================

Plot summary for "King Kong Lives" aka "King Kong 2" in Japan at IMDB.com
(http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091344/)

A giant ape King Kong, which was shot and fell off the World Trade Center,
appears to be alive, but is in coma for 10 years and desperately needs a blood
transfusion in order to have an artificial heart implanted. Suddenly, in the
rainforest, another gigantic ape is found - this time a female. She is brought
to the USA, and the heart is successfully implanted. But then King Kong, having
felt a female ape, breaks loose...

I recently saw the first "King Kong" from 1933 which is a classic in my
opinion. I also saw "King Kong Lives" recently, overall the movie is pretty
bad! (luckily the game isn't!) To most king kong fans this movie is the worst
version ever to be put on screen.

A few comparisons can be made with the movie:

1. Both movie and game were released in the same year (1986)
2. The main character's name is the same. (Hank) Mitchel(l). Probably not 
   enough room in the game screen for his full name :-)
3. There is also a "Lady Kong" and "Baby Kong" in both movie and game (ending). 
4. The game title screen mentions De Laurentiis Entertainment Group Inc. as
   publisher which refers to Dino De Laurentiis who is the executive producer
   of the movie. 
5. Amy (played by Linda Hamilton) operated on Kong as mentioned in the game
   ending although with a very different purpose.

Be sure to check out Peter Jackson's multi million dollar budget remake of
King Kong, it's destined to be a huge hit! As a tribute this FAQ is released
on the same date as the movie hits the theaters.

You can save and load this game to tape if you have Hinotori (Firebird),
another game by konami (RC 747). You have to put Hinotori in cartridge slot 1
and King Kong 2 in Slot 2. Hinotori searches for King Kong 2 and executes it.
With this done pressing F4 during the game allows you to save the game to tape.
F5 is used for loading.


===============================================================================
 02d. Endings
===============================================================================

Thanks to Manuel Pazos we now know there are actually three endings in this
game, the only factors of importance are DAYS and CONTINUES.

Ending #1 (Best)  -  Finish the game in less then 365 DAYS    (Hard Difficulty)
                     and use less then 33 CONTINUES.

===============================================================================
 02e. Areas
===============================================================================

The land of Golnebo can be divided into 8 different areas.

Area #1 (The Grasslands)      -  The beginning, the part between CLUBMAN and
                                 GRIZZLY.
Area #2 (The Mountains)       -  Everything behind CLUBMAN until RED SPIDER.
Area #3 (The Forest)          -  Everything behind GRIZZLY.
Area #4 (The Marsh)           -  Everything behind RED SPIDER until the
                                 TWINMIRES and THE NASTY.
Area #5 (The Ruins)           -  Everything behind THE NASTY until the CROW
                                 and above MR RUINS (to the landing field).
Area #6 (The Sea)             -  Everything behind the CROW.
Area #7 (The Golden Temple)   -  Everything inside the golden temple.
Area #8 (The Caves)  -  Everything beyond the TWINMIRES and MR RUINS.

Note: There is a very good map available on the internet created by
      Luiz Fernando Villela. It is in JPG format and covers all areas including
      the cellars, the golden temple (including its secret areas) and where to
      find all the weapons and items.

      You can find it here: http://www.geocities.com/msxgamer
      It has many more maps from other MSX games.

Update: Released on January 7th, 2005 there is now a (better) map available
        created by Fabio Albergaria Dias. It is in PNG format and includes
        everything the other map has and more! Most noticable the enemy names
        and all the cellars!

        You can find it here: http://msxsolutions.msxblue.com
        It has many more maps from other MSX games, and is updated regularly.
        The latest version of the FAQ can also be found there.


===============================================================================
 02f. Cheats
===============================================================================

It is possible to start a new game with a higher level then you normally would.
At the title screen press and hold TAB+F1 and then press the Spacebar to start
a new game with a level of 10. In stead of F1 you can use F2 to start at level
20, F3 to start at level 30, F4 to start at level 40 and finally F5 to start at
level 50. Especially the latter is very useful when trying to get the best
ending.

You can you BlueMSX trainer (emulator) which is able to give you all items and
weapons in the game.

If you would like to play the ultimate translation (or any other fan-made
translation of your favorite game originally only released in cartridge format)
on a real MSX computer instead of using an emulator, you can do so by using a
flash cartridge (or something similar). Not really a cheat but still very nice
to know.


===============================================================================
 02g. Manual
===============================================================================

If you like to read the manual of the game you can check out Imanok's site
where you can find the complete manual translated to English. It even contains
the original artwork. 

You can find it here: http://imanok.msxblue.com/kk2-man/index.htm


===============================================================================
 03. Walkthrough
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
 03a. Normal Walkthrough
===============================================================================

First of all a few notes regarding this walkthrough.

When it tells "Walk (N, W, S)" it means: "Walk one screen to the North, then
one to the West and then one screen to the South".
Accordingly "Walk (NE, 2W)" means: "Walk out of the screen in the Northeast
part of the screen and then 2 screens to the West" 

When it tells "Level up here until level 20" it means: "Kill the creatures here
for experience points until your EXP meter reads 2000 or more"
Walking away 2 or more screens away from the creatures will mostly replenish
them.

You need to backtrack often in this game, since this is too much for
"Walk (E, N, W, Etc...)" I will mostly give you AREA or BOSS locations to
backtrack to.

All words written in CAPITAL mean names of enemies, bosses, weapons or items
in the game.

All text in this walkthrough is based on the english version of the ultimate
translation.

Now to the real walkthrough!


You start getting off a boat.
Enter the cabin to get your mission objective.

/-----------------------------------------------------------------------------\
| MISSION OBJECTIVE ACQUIRED                                                  |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Why did you come to Golnebo island?                                         |
|                                                                             |
| Hmmm, I see. So you came to find LADY KONG? According to the legend she is  |
| hidden in the island. You'll have to unravel the legend to find her.        |
| Ask the jungle elders and they will give you some clues. Take care!         |
\-----------------------------------------------------------------------------/

Walk (N,W,N)
Remember this place if you're in need of gold, because everytime you kill all
the WILDBOAR and POISNFROG (and collected their gold) walk out of the screen
and come back, the POISNFROG are replenished.
Walk (E), kill the 3 PIGWORM and then enter the cabin. This cabin happens to
be a shop.

Note: If you have 300G+ and try to buy the AXE it will always tell you that
the AXE is sold out. Don't wory about this because you will get the AXE for
free later on anyway.

Buy the KNIFE here.

/-----------------------------------------------------------------------------\

Press F2 and equip the KNIFE.

Walk (S) and you'll see a boss named CLUBMAN. Ignore him for now because you
can't kill him yet. Enter the cabin for a new tip.

\-----------------------------------------------------------------------------/

Walk (W) and kill the 3 BUCKLER for some MP, note that you can only hit the
BUCKLER from behind. Remember there is a tombstone here, we will get to that
later in the game. Walk (N) and ignore the GRASSOGRE and enter the cabin. This
is the first cellar you enter in the game. This is sorcerer's cellar. Inside
is another cabin, enter it for a new tip.

/-----------------------------------------------------------------------------\
| NEW TIP ACQUIRED: CABIN #4                                                  |

| Kill the white monsters with the LIGHT SWORD.                               |

Walk (E) and focus on the 3 RATT, kill them and they will drop an item.

/-----------------------------------------------------------------------------\

| Use it to restore 10 life points, and cure poison.                          |
\-----------------------------------------------------------------------------/

Be sure to have at least 5 HERB when leaving this area. If you plan to go for
the best ending I suggest you save up ALOT of HERB here. Now backtrack to the
shop where you bought the KNIFE. Equip the ROD and walk (S).

/-----------------------------------------------------------------------------\
| BOSS BATTLE #2: CLUBMAN                                                     |

| Strategy: Use the ROD to slash away on CLUBMAN, hit him on the foot when he |
| walks away from you. When you come too close stop hitting and wait a little.|

| According to KONG's legend, you need the YELLOW STONES to kill the BIG      |

\-----------------------------------------------------------------------------/

Note: Since you already used the PAPYRUS from RED SPIDER to produce the WATER
SANDALS you actually don't need to get the PAPYRUS here. The only use it will
have is that you can create another pair of WATER SANDALS and trade them at
a later stage in the game.

To get the PAPYRUS start from the beginning again and walk 4 blocks down,
3 blocks left, 2 blocks down, 1 block right, 2 blocks down and 1 block left.

Congratulations!! you just finished KING KONG 2, watch one of the three
endings according to the ammount of DAYS and CONTINUES you used (section 02d).
Note: In the first english translation only the good ending is translated, the
      other two are still in french. The endings in the later english
      translations are all completely in english.


===============================================================================
 03b. Best Ending Walkthrough
===============================================================================

Before you start trying to obtain the Best Ending I advise you finish the game
at least once using the Normal Walkthrough.  

Your main concern during this guide is the amount of CONTINUES you use. Stay
below 33 to get the Best Ending. Staying below 365 DAYS should be fairly easy.

This walkthrough only describes the actions NECESSARY to complete the game,
many obsolete things are left out for speed.

Avoid as many enemies as possible and try to level up preferably only in
places where you can't get hit leveling up (I'll mention those places in the
walkthrough).

Remember to always increase your SPEED in the options screen when you reached
level 10, 20, etc. (See section 02b)

If you need MP get it from the GRASSOGRE in stead of the BUCKLER because it's
hard to hit the BUCKLER from behind without getting hit.

If you have the luxury to save using the cart combination, don't hesitate to
save alot and replay a part if you think you can do it in less CONTINUES.

Optionally you can make your life much easier when using an MSX emulator with
save state support.

To make it even more easier use the cheat described in section 02f and start
at level 50 and immediatly increase your SPEED to 05.

To the walkthrough!

Walk (N,W,N,E,N,W) and push the rock over the GRASSOGRE to kill them. You
need to kill 15 GRASSOGRE to get a new weapon.

/-----------------------------------------------------------------------------\
| NEW WEAPON ACQUIRED: ROD                                                    |
\-----------------------------------------------------------------------------/

Equip the ROD and walk (N) and focus on the 3 RATT, kill them and they will
drop an item.

/-----------------------------------------------------------------------------\
| NEW ITEM ACQUIRED: HERB                                                     |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Use it to restore 10 life points, and cure poison.                          |
\-----------------------------------------------------------------------------/

Be sure to have at least 5 HERB when leaving this area, but I advise you to
pile up ALOT of HERB here. Walk (S,2E,2S)

| BOSS BATTLE #1: CLUBMAN                                                     |
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| Strategy: Use the ROD to slash away on CLUBMAN, hit him on the foot when he |
| walks away from you. When you come too close stop hitting and wait a little.|
| Eventually you'll kill him.                                                 |
| Drops: STONES                                                               |

Note: I came to this point with no fence in the screen (N) so I could use the
IRON KEY on the fence to the (S) and don't waste 5 HERBS on it. I don't know
why there wasn't any fence (maybe because I didn't use a single continue until
this point)
Update: I checked if it had to do with continues, I rushed to this point from
the beginning without using a continue but the fence was closed so maybe you
need to follow a specific pattern before coming here (without using a
continue).

Now backtrack to where you killed RED SPIDER and walk (N,2E,N,E,S) and enter
the cabin below the KONG statue for a new item.

return (E). Repeat this until level 27 without getting hit.
Kill all WATCHMAN in this screen to reveal another staircase, equip KONG'S CLAW

a description for each.

Notes          -  This enemy is summoned by BADPRIEST.


Name           -  SHUT ALL
