3.INTRODUCTION
---------------
Knightmare 2:Maze of Galious/Majou Densetsu 2:Daimashikyou Galious is a 
Japanese game which was released back in 1987 for Nintendo Entertainment 
System(NES). It is a sequel to Knightmare. I've never played Knightmare 1 
before. All I know is that it is a shooter type of game in which you play as 
Popolon who tried to rescue his wife Aphrodite from a villain named Hudnos. The
sequel takes place right after you rescued Aphrodite.  Now you play as both 
Popolon and Aphrodite, who will try to to rescue their future baby kidnapped 
by a dark priest named Galious. The gameplay is a mix between action and RPG.
You have the side-scrolling actions throughout six worlds and yet at the same
time there are some RPG elements included such as having to find certain items
to complete certain tasks. Maze of Galious stays true to its name with its huge
and sometimes confusing maze-like worlds to be explored.

There's an MSX version of Maze of Galious too, and it is well known better 
than the NES version. I'm looking forward to play the MSX version soon as some
people said that it is slightly better than it's NES counterpart.

4.STORY
--------
"Popolon went into Mt. Atos to rescue Aphrodite kidnapped by Hudnos. But it
was a trap made by Galious. He attacked the castle during Popolon's absence
and also kidnapped and imprisoned a baby from heaven who was supposed to be 
born to Popolon and Aphrodite several years later." - Copyright(c)Konami

From your starting point, go to the left and get the map. Then go up the
stairs into the area above. Only Popolon can enter the yellow door here. 
Go up to area B4 and get the 'Lamp'(Lm). To get the 'Red arrow'(Ra), go
to area C5 and jump down to the area below. Go get the 'Great key'(Gk) 
in area E6. It enables you to go to World 1. Finally go get the 'Angle 
ring'(Ar) in area G4. If you want to save your game for some reasons, use
the 'Angle ring' to transport you to the 'Password lady'(pl) area at F4.
She will give you passwords which you can use to continue your games up to
that point. That's pretty much all you can do for now before you get to
the portal to World 1. There's a 'Death place'(d) nearby which you can
go to if you want to resurrect your dead partner. 
   
WORLD 1
---------
NOTE: In each worlds from 1 - 5, you have the options of finding 3 helper
tools to ease the boss fight: Pure water, Mantle and Magic rod. Pure water
will halve the boss' live. Mantle will increase your defense and Magic rod 
enables you to use infinite ammo when fighting boss. Before fighting each boss,
you also have to know the spells to summon them located in a specific place 
inside each world.

To get the map, first go up to the next area. Kill the stone creatures and
go up another 2 stairs. Proceed to you right. Take the 2nd stairs on the right
and go up to the next area. Go to your right and you'll see the treasure which
contains the map.

Now go down to area D2 and jump down to the area below. In this area, go down
and jump into the opening which will lead you to the shop(s1 at F3) that sells
'Mongolian sword' for $20. Acquiring this sword will enable you to destroy the
white blocks one at a time. Go back to area D2 and go to the top right corner.
Destroy the blocks to reveal a hidden stairs. Go up the stairs. Go right and up
the stairs to area B3. On the far right an old man will give you a clue:

"Wait on the shore for a ferry to the otherside"

The shore that he's talking about is the 'river'(r) area at B6. Make your
way to that area. On your way, pick up the 'Pure water'(Pw) at A4. When you
arrive at B6, wait at the bottom platform near the river for hidden platforms
to appear. You have to jump onto the platforms that appear one at a time to 
cross the river(So much for a ferry). I suggest you use Aphrodite for this task,
for if you fall into the river, you're not gonna lose much health. When you 
arrive at the other side, jump into the opening to the area C7 below.

First thing you should do now is to go get the 'Mantle'(Mn) at E9. Then
if you want you can go buy 'Asurot shield' at the shop s2. It's a bit tricky to
get to the shop. When you're at lower C8 area, stand at the edge of the opening
on your right. Then drop down below into area D8 without jumping. You'll land 
straight onto the single platform there. From area D8, you have to jump again 
below to area E8. Control your jump so that you will land onto one of the single
platforms below in area E8 which will lead you to the shop on the left (E7). 

After that, you can jump further down into the F area. Be careful not to plunge 
into the river when you do this. Use Aphrodite to avoid losing much health in 
case you do fall into the river. If you have enough money, go buy the 
'Necklace' at shop s3 on your far right. Again use Aphrodite because she can 
get it at a  much cheaper price($180) compared to Popolon($270). Next, go get 
the spell to summon a boss at area F2. If you plan on going down to area G5 to
get the 'Magicwear'(Mg), don't! You don't have the right tools yet. Just 
remember that place for now. Go up to area E5 and take the 'Magic rod'(Mr). 
This area(E5) has two sides. The rod is located on the right side which is 
accessible from area D5. 

Your final task here is to get to the boss place(BOS) in area C5. The boss will
not appear until you use the spell to summon it. If you're low on health, go 
outside and kill the 'owl' enemy. Then go inside the boss area again. Repeat 
this till your vitality is refilled. When you are ready to fight the boss, 
press the related buttons on your control pad to invoke the spell and he will
appear.

Boss: Yomar
------------
The best technique to kill this boss is to stay on the far left side of the 
screen and fire the 'Red arrow'. You need to target his head, which is his only
weak point. Dodge all the bones coming your way. Another way is to stay under 
his long neck and jab his head repeatedly when it comes down. After the boss 
dies, you'll get yourself another 'Great key' which will enable you to go to 
World 2. You'll notice that your vitality bar has increased too. To exit 
World 1 quickly, use the 'Angel ring'. You'll be transported to the portal to 
the Main Castle in no time. Use the 'Angel ring' again to go to the Password 
lady's place to save your game and obtain the password.

Main Castle revisited
--------------------
Now that you've got the 'Mongolian sword', you can go to some areas in
the Main Castle where you weren't able to access before(see Main Castle map).
Among other things you can find:
1)$90 in secret area x2.        
2)'Devil wing'(Dw) in area F6(hidden inside the blocks).
3)60 ammo in secret area x3.
4)$150 in secret area x4.
5)'Ceramic arrow'(Ca) in area D3.
6)'Boot' in area I1.
7)'Salt' in area G2.
8)Refill your life at the 'Fairy'(f) area E3. For the fairy to appear, you 
  have to stay near the lowest blocks in this area. You will see bubbles 
  appearing which will then start forming into the fairy. Catch the fairy
  to refill your vitality before she flies away. You can do this unlimited 
  number of time.

To get WORLD 2 map: From the starting point, go to the left. Use Aphrodite 
to enter the blue gate(you cannot use Popolon to enter the gate unless you
have the 'Necklace', but you can switch back to him after Aphrodite exits 
thru the same or another blue gate). Go up the stairs and up again to the 
next area. Go to your left and pick up the 'Mantle'(Mn). Beware of that 
annoying purple monster. Go up the stairs and walk to the right to the end
of the area. You'll see the treasure with the map inside.

To go to shop s1, you have to wait for the lift at area A3. Jump on it to
go down. Once it reaches the lower B3 area, jump onto the single bottom 
platform on your right. Proceed to the right. Go up the long stairs to the
next area. Go right and jump into the opening. While falling, move slightly
to the right so that you will fall onto the single platform once you reach
area D5. Jump to the right while killing the bats. Take the stairs which 
will lead you to the shop. You can purchase 'Balloon bomb' for $20 here. 
Be careful when using the bomb coz it could hurt you too if you stay too 
close to it.

To reach shop s2, jump into the rightmost opening at area C3. The shop 
sells 'Bracelet' for $220 if you use Popolon($380 if you use Aphrodite). 
The 'Bracelet' will allow Aphrodite to enter the blue gate in World 3.
To get the 'Candle'(Cn), you have to jump into the leftmost opening at 
the same area. Then go further left and you'll see the treasure.To get
the 'Pure water'(Pw), you have to get the 'Black onion' at area F9 first.
Once you got the onion, all the lava will turn into stones and you can 
go get the 'Pure water' safely. If you know the password to summon the 
boss and you're ready to fight him(make sure you already have the 
'Ballon bomb' at this point), return to F9.

Boss:Elohim
-----------
Use Aphrodite to fight this creature coz she can release 3 balloon bombs 
at once compared to 2 using Popolon. Elohim will appear in either the left,
right, or middle of the ceiling. Release the balloon bombs when he appears 
so that they will go straight to his core and damage him. Repeat this until
he dies. After you destroy the creature, you'll get the 3rd 'Great key'
(and vitality increase) which will enable you to go to World 3.

To get WORLD 3 map: Go right. Take the upper path and destroy the blocks to
reveal a hidden stairs. Go up the stairs to the next area. Go left. The
first treasure that you see contains the map. Use Aphrodite to get the map.

To get 'Oar'(Oa): In area E5, you'll see the 'Oar' treasure unreachable
from your position. It's not quite what it seems. There's actually a secret
path here inside the wall that will lead you to the treasure. First of all,
kill that hairy monster(what the heck is that anyway?? It looks ugly and I
hate it!Oh well..). From where the secret path begin(the wall just below the
'Oar') walk about 10 steps to the left. Then jump onto the left, avoiding
hidden hole in front of you. Then jump up and to the right to the platform 
above and you'll be able to reach the treasure. Acquiring the 'Oar' will 
enable you to walk on the river in area B4. You can also try to get the 'Oar'
from area E3 but the secret path is more complicated there.

To get 'Mine'(Mi): In area G3, just below the clue(cl1) place, you'll
see 3 witches. One above and two below circling the platform. After you
kill the second witch below from your right, jump into the opening. The
path will lead you to the 'Mine' weapon.

'Earrings': The 'Earrings' reside within the blue gate area under the
river. This is where the power of the 'Bracelet' comes into effect. Without
it you won't be able to switch to Aphrodite to get the treasure while 
minimizing the damage.

You can buy 'Pendant' at shop s2 for $40 using Aphrodite ($60 for Popolon).

To get 'Rolling fire': You can buy it at shop s1 in area D6 for $40. In 
area C6, stand on the right of the platform in the middle of the river.
Jump as far away as you can to the right into the river. You'll land 
right on top of the platform where the shop is. If you got everything already
and are ready to fight the boss, make your way to the boss area(A3).

Boss:Ascher
-----------
For an easy fight, just use the 'Rolling fire'. Stay on the middle platform
just above where the boss appears. Start using the 'Rolling fire' on him
like crazy. He'll die just like that. Now you can procede to World 4.

Main Castle revisited:
---------------------
1)Get 'Sabre'(Sb) at D11
2)Uncover another fairy area at F10. Just stay on the 8th stone from your
  right(6th from your left) for the fairy to appear.

World 1 revisited:
------------------
1)Get 'Magicwear'(Mg) at G5. You need it to counter the 'opposite-effect'
  in World 4.

NOTE:You must have the 'Magicwear' here to avoid the 'opposite-effect' in
which when you press the left or right direction button, your character
will move in the opposite of those directions. 

You are going to curse this world to no end. Not that coz it's hard or
anything but there's just darn too many annoying enemies here. Just
when you think you're safe, they appear out of nowhere, knocking you
down to the bottom of the pit. Anyway..that's just a small rant from me.
Let's get back to the game.
   
To get WORLD 4 map: From your starting point, go downstairs to the area
below. Then go the the left. Take the 4th stairs to the area above. 
Continue going up the long stairs to the next area above. Go right and
go up another stairs to the next area. Move a bit right and you will see
the treasure.

Don't forget to find the 'Puppet' in area K1. You'll need it to go to
World 5 later. Also stop by at shop s2 in area H3 to buy 'Muramasa sword'.
Use Aphrodite to get the lower price of $330. Use the 'Candle' in area G3 
to light the pathway. You can access secret area x1 and x2 from area B1. 
Destroy the blocks on the left using the 'Mine'. Go down and walk to the 
left. You will fall down into the secret opening which will lead you to 
the secret shop. Buy 'Helm' here for $240 using Popolon($380 if you use 
Aphrodite). To get out of the secret area,use the secret path above the shop
slightly to the right. Another important item is the 'Great shield', which
you can buy at shop s3 in area C4 for $450. Just below the boss area, 
there's an opening that you can jump into which will lead you to a 
treasure containing 'Fire'(Fi) weapon.

Boss: Xywoleh
-------------
WARNING: Sometimes a very nasty glitch occurs here. After the boss dies, the
treasure containing the 'Great key' will hang in the middle of the screen
and refuse to fall down. This means you're not gonna be able to get it and
get trapped there forever. I suggest you save the game before fighting this
boss. To avoid this glitch from occurring, anytime during the fight, press
'Start' to access the submenu screen. Then press 'Start' again to go back to
the game. You have to do this BEFORE Xywoleh dies.
 
To defeat this boss, line up the 'Mine' along his pathway close to each other.
That way he won't be able to move faster and consume space in that area which
can trap you to your death. Just watch out where he's heading. Sooner or later
he'll die and you'll get yourself the final 'Great key'(key to World 5).       

Main Castle revisited again
--------------------------
1)Use 'Puppet' in area G8 to make a bridge appear.
2)Obtain 'Jar'(Ja) in area G10.

To get WORLD 5 map and 'Pure water': From your starting position, go to
the right past the purple bear. Drop down to the lower path. Kill the 
purple bear while avoiding the lightning from the cloud. Drop down into 
the hole on your right. Kill the guard. Destroy blocks on your right to 
reveal a hidden stairs. Go up the stairs. Jump into the opening on your 
right while at the same time controlling your jump so that you will land
onto the single platform below and not into the lava. Continue to the 
right. Kill the guard and bats. Move further and go up the 2nd stairs 
that you encounter. Proceed left and destroy all blocks. Careful not to 
fall down below. Go up the stairs and kill all guards. Take upper path 
and continue to the left. Go up the stairs to the next area. Jump into 
the single opening on your left. Kill the purple bear. Go up the stairs. 
Jump into another single opening on your left. Go up the stairs on your 
left. Take the upper platform to the right and you'll get your map. From 
here, go left and up the stairs to the next area. Jump into the 3rd
opening from your right and you'll get the 'Pure water'.

To get 'Bible': From the starting point(portal to Main Castle), go right
past the purple bear. Take the 1st stairs and go up. Go up another two
platforms. Destroy the two blocks and proceed to the left. Go down. Kill
the guard. Go left. Don't jump into the single hole. Destroy the blocks.
Jump into the 1st opening that you see, moving slightly to the right so 
that you will fall right on the platform below. Go right and get the 
'Bible'. Now the slow effect will vanish.

To get 'Magic rod': From the starting point(portal to Main Castle), go 
right past the purple bear. Take the 1st stairs and go up. Go up another
two platforms. Destroy the two blocks and proceed to the left. Go down.
Kill the guard. Go left. Don't jump into the single hole. Destroy the 
blocks. Proceed to the left and don't fall into any of the holes below.
Kill the purple bear and go up the stairs to the next area. Take the 
upper path and to the left end of the area while avoiding lightning from
the clouds. Destroy the vertical blocks that you see one at a time. Go 
down. Destroy the last block on the left. Fall down below to the next 
area. You are now in area D5. Go a bit right. Jump into the opening left
of the purple bear to the next area. Go right and destroy the blocks but 
don't go up the stairs. Go down and to the left. Fall below and you'll 
get the 'Magic rod'.

To get 'Cross': You need to get to area F2 first. To get there, follow the
path you take like when you try to find the 'Magic rod' except when you
arrive at D5, don't jump into the opening. Proceed to the left end of the 
area. Go down onto the single platform below. Hop onto the last single
platform on the left. Jump into the opening to the next area. Walk to
the left end. Go down and destroy the last block on your left. Jump into
the small opening. Proceed left to F2.  

In F2, you can go thru the wall on your left to secret area x1. Then go up
to x2 and go right to x3. There's also a secret path in x3 that will lead 
you to the 'Cross'. Just jump up and to the right into the illusion wall.
Careful not to plunge into the lava.

You can buy the 'Harp' which costs $380 at shop s1 in F12. You need it to
open up the pathway to Galious' lair. If you're ready to fight Galious, 
make your way to the boss area. When you arrive at B6, destroy the last 
bottom block on the left and jump below. Go left and up the stairs. The
path will lead you to Galious.

Boss:Galious
------------
Galious' weak point is his 'dark cross'. The problem is he has 8 fire shields 
around him that regenerates everytime he appear. You need to destroy these
shields before you can attack the cross effectively. The easiest way is to
use the 'Red arrow'(you need the 'Cross' for this to work). Set your 'B' 
button into auto fire/turbo mode. Otherwise the arrow will be too slow to
penetrate Galious' fire shields. The best time to attack him is when he 
appear either on the rightmost or under the middle platform .If he appear
on the rightmost platform, stay on the middle platform and use your rapid
fire arrow to destroy his shields. Once the shields are gone, your arrows
will go straight to his cross. If he appears under the middle platform, 
stay on the left and use the same tactic. He'll die on no time.

Another way to defeat Galious is to use the combination of 'Mine' and 
'Fire'/'Rolling fire'(don't need the 'Cross' for this). Stay on the lower
left platform and wait for Galious to appear right of you under the middle
platform. Before he summon his fire shields, put all three mines on the 
right edge of the platform you're staying. Then quickly change your weapon
into 'Fire' or 'Rolling fire' and attack Galious' fire shields at the same
time they are being weakened by your mines. When all the fire shields
are gone, move to the edge of the platform and attack Galious' cross using
your sword. Repeat till he dies.  

Baby blues
-----------
Now that Galious' is gone, your final quest is to find you future baby, 
Pampas, hidden somewhere in this  area. Good luck and may you live happily
ever after!
