01.)                    INTRODUCTION                                 G0100
===============================================================================

Welcome to 'The Tower of Druaga' for the NES, an action RPG released by Namco
in 1985. It is similar, but not identical to the Arcade version. There were
also few of remakes on the PC Engine (TurboGrafx-16), PlayStation, GameBoy
and so on as well as several sequels/prequels that are not so similar.

Suggestions, comments or errors - email me about it. Enjoy!


===============================================================================
02.)                    BASICS                                       G0200
===============================================================================

As you can tell from the introduction, your objective is to recover the blue
crystal rod, rescue Ki and kill Druaga. The aim of the game is to find the exit
on each floor to make it to the top of the tower. On the way you will find
several items to help defeat monsters and make this task easier. Sometimes you
are required to pick up treasure in order to finish the game or defeat a
monster to progress. If you missed it earlier, you are stuck and need to
restart from the beginning. Beware that the game is tough and very ruthless.


Basics:
```````

All floors are random in that the enemies, exit, starting position and items
appear at different places, including the key. The layout is always the same,
however, so make use of the maps but don't forget to smash walls with your
power-ups.

Not all treasure chests are good, thus check what you are getting before making
it appear to save you time, lives and running around. The treasure chest will
appear at your starting position, you may have picked up the item while you
were starting the level and haven't moved yet.


Controls:
`````````

Use the A or B button to use an item. As standard you will swing your sword.
Keep the button pressed to walk with a drawn sword and kill enemies as you walk
into them, that otherwise will kill you instantly. Not all enemies can be
killed with the standard equipment.

Gilgamesh automatically blocks with his shield from the direction he is facing.
When using the sword you cannot block with your shield at the same time. With
your sword drawn you still block the side on your left, however.

After picking up the axe you can stand in front of an inner wall and press A or
B to hack through it. Check the items section for a closer description of how
and how not to use the axes. Just be aware that the first two have limited
usage and if used once too often, will disappear from your inventory. This is
very bad, and will almost certainly mean you cannot finish the game.

You start the game with 2 lives. Getting touched by a foe kills you and you
have to restart the floor all over. If you die after picking up a treasure box
you will still have the item after restarting the floor.


Time & Score:
``````````````

Each floor gives you a certain time to finish it. The countdown will not kill
you straight away, but once the points have reached zero a red counter will
tell you there are 60 seconds left until you do die. There are also will-o-
wisps appearing around the 50 second mark to patrol the area. Until later on in
the game you have no chance to defend yourself from them apart of running way.

Apart of the time bonus there are also points given for slaying enemies. Your
total score is displayed at the start of each floor, as well as the current
high score.


Display:
````````

Note that most items are only displayed if you have them in your possession.

      will always be different, as well as enemy positions and the key.

Enemies: 8 Green Slimes

Kill three green slimes to get the bronze pickaxe. With this you can destroy
one inner wall per level. Try to use it twice and it will disappear, as well
as trying to use it on the outer walls, so don't even bother.

Enemies: 5 Green Slimes
         3 Black Slimes

Kill two black slimes and a treasure chest containing the winged boots will
appear. From now you can get through the levels much much faster.

Enemies: 4 Green Slimes
         2 Blue Knights

If you want an extra life, kill the two blue knights swooping around in the
area. They take a few hits but shouldn't be a problem. The potion adds an
extra life but not visually an extra armor. Should you die at any point from
now on, the game will still show the two armors afterwards.

Enemies: 6 Black Slimes
         1 Mage

To pick up the bell, walk onto the exit before you pick up the key. Apart from
the huge amount of slimes there is a mage teleporting around and it's quite
hard to outmaneuver him once you are in his target line.

Enemies: 4 Green Slimes
         5 Mages

There are a few mages ready to take you on at the start. Blocking a zap three
times will show the treasure containing an item that is required for another
power up later on in the game. I suggest you try and get this. To block, just
stand still and face the direction of where the zap is coming from. It's
easier said than done though. You should also get an extra armor now, possibly
for the potion you picked up earlier.

Enemies: 3 Sorcerer
         2 Black Knights

While you are getting the key, reach the top of the map and walk down for the
treasure to appear. This will show the ghosts in the next few levels. Don't
take on the black knights with red and white armor. The sorcerers will often
leave a flame on a spot you cannot touch. Just wait if they are in the way.
Just don't move and no more will spawn in the meantime.

|____________________|_______________________|__|

Enemies: 3 Red Slimes
         3 Blue Knights

Use your bronze pickaxe on an inner wall twice or simply on an outer door, and
you can get the silver pickaxe instead which won't break if you use it too
often and can be used a few times per floor. The rest of the level is nothing
special.

Enemies: 5 Black Slimes
         4 Mages

From where you start out at, step onto another point that is not of the
starting position's row nor column. For example if you start in the bottom
left corner, go up one square and then take a step to the right. Swing your
sword and pick up the power potion to improve your strength. Now go find the
exit.

Enemies: 3 Sorcerer
         1 Druid
         1 Wizard Ghost

Stepping on point A reveals the treasure chest, but you don't want it. Instead
just find the key and avoid the ghosts / magicians on the way to the exit.

Wait for one of those red slimes to shoot at you and obviously block the zap.
The treasure chest contains the gauntlet you will be needing later on floor
26.

The druid can shoot through walls, and often destroy them. To make one appear
on the bottom row, wait there for it. The treasure is required on floor 52.

Enemies: 5 Blue Slimes
         2 Sorcerer

First find the exit and step on it before collecting the key. For the treasure
chest to appear you will now have to kill every single enemy. Fortunately it's
mainly some slimes and a couple of wizards.

So how to kill the wizards? They only appear when you move around. Try to stay
in an area with many broken down walls. You can catch the wizards when they
are still flashing, so quickly go around with your sword drawn and stick in
their back or side.

The shield itself is not useful at this point, but you need it to obtain the
real one later.

Enemies: 4 Red Slimes
         1 Wizard
         1 Mage Ghost

Simply wait for the time to reach 5000 and the treasure chest with the blue
potion will appear. If you don't move the wizard won't appear, so find a safe
corner after finding the key. There are only a few red slimes and the ghost to
be avoided anyway.

Go find the blue knight and duel him. After crossing through him the treasure
chest will appear. The necklace is required for later treasures.

Enemies: 5 Mages
         1 Mirror Knight

There are lots of mages out to get out, but the real pain in the neck is
that knight. Take him out if he causes too much trouble because you don't want
to be bothered when there are five mages blazing from all angles. While you
look for the key, touch both the left and right side of the maze for the
treasure chest. You finally have a candle to see the ghosts for the rest of
the game.

Don't kill the ghosts and instead avoid them until they have teleported around
a few times. After five times the treasure chest will appear that is required
for the next floor.

Enemies: 3 Black Slimes

         1 Mage Ghost

Don't touch the outer walls for around 10 seconds and the treasure chest will
pop up. Should you start at the outer wall, just walk away from it at the
start and it should still count. I believe you could even not move and make it
count but then again you can't really afford to stay at the same spot for that
long. One step closer to the Hyper Sword.

These magicians shoot through walls, so if they appear in your line you better
make for a quick change of lanes. Just as you open the exit, the treasure
chest will make itself visible. Grab it before you leave. If you do not pick
this treasure up the next few floors will be pitch dark, something you want to
avoid. Oh and there is a mean dragon on this level as well, who can torch down
a pretty long lines with his breath.

Do not kill anyone, anything, or anybody as you make your way to the key and
the exit. Just as you are about to leave this floor the chest will pop up.
Another strength power up if you feel like taking on these foes ever so often.

At any point, stay still for around 5 to 10 seconds. This doesn't have to be
at the start of the level, so perhaps kill the ghost and knights first and
then wait for it. As this ring protects you from any damage the blue will-o-
wisps do, you can safely collect it and finish the floor. Also this will
enable you to get another treasure later on.

There are 3 wizards and you should kill them all but sometimes the treasure

have picked up the key. Now that you have the Hyper Gauntlet you can swing the

From the start, press U, L, D, R, U, L, D, R, U, L, D, R. Finally a good axe
that won't break unless of course you are silly enough to try and break down
the outside walls. Oh and only one of the exits is correct, but at least with
the pickup from the last floor you can see the real one rather than stumble
around blindly.

Block a zap by the wizard for the treasure. It's not too easy, but try to just
have your sword drawn and aim for shots from the side rather than dead ahead.
If you don't have this item, you won't have another crystal rod later and in

         2 Red Knights
         2 Red Will-o-Wisps

Enter the combination of U, U, D, D, D, D, D. Another protection, this time
for the red will-o-wisps and there are already plenty on the floor to make
this useful straight away. Note that you trade this for the old ring, so the
blue will-o-wisp damage you as before. You still need to new ring for another
power up later so the trade-off is more or less a must, but you can finish the
game without it.

If you wait until the time has reached 10000 and cross a Roper, you could pick
up a potion. It will make the timer run down at nearly twice speed. So don't
bother.

then you can get a nifty mace, possibly required for the other mace later on.

For the important chest to appear, kill the magic users in the following
order: Black - Druid, Blue - Mage, Green - Sorcerer, Brown - Wizard. Try to
leave the two knights alone and build a nice area without any walls so you can
quickly outmaneuver those magicians and move in for the kill from the side.
Luckily the fire won't hurt.

         1 Black Knight
         1 Blue Knight

There is one chest already visible from the start, but picking it up right
away will result in a rapid time decrease. Instead start killing those knights
in the following order: Lizard - Mirror Knight - Hyper Knight - Black Knight -
Blue Knight. Leave the Red Knight alone, he's too strong to take on anyway. In
case you need more help, Mirror Knight is the flashing guy; Hyper Knight is
the really fast one. With the blue potion from the new chest you can safely
pick up the one that was around all this time. Weapons upgrades are always
welcome.

You NEED this weapons upgrade for the 59th floor!!!

From one of the corners, visit all the other three and return to where you
started this route. You may need to make sure you want the entire corner, in
other words, cut down the walls so you can come from one side and leave via
the other. With the blue necklace you don't need to fear any more dragon fire.

killing a roper you get a potion which will unlock a sap potion later on floor

Simple visit all four corners for the red crystal rod. Since you are immune to
the dragon's breath and the blue slimes are no real threat, slice your way
through the walls, kind of building a ring at the outer edge. Or whatever,
it's not a hard floor at all.

Just for curiosity's sake, if you picked up the potion on floor 47 then you
can get a sap potion here by stepping on the exit door without the key, then
killing a wizard. But there is no point in doing this.

There is a treasure chest, but it's empty. It appears after getting zapped by
the wizard, IF you have the Hyper Armor to absorb it. But you can only unlock
it if you didn't unlock the previous chest on floor 54. Well seeing that there
is no point to getting this one, it was a good idea to unlock the previous
one.

From point A, walk up but around to point B, then down to C. You may need to
remove the wall below point C for this to work out properly. So from point A,
walk up, left into the corridor that continues north, smash the wall next to
B, then walk to own past C and the chest should be there. This treasure is
required for the dragon to show up on the next floor.

           Quox (after killing the third Wizard)
           Druaga (after killing the Dragon)
 

If you just pick up the key and leave, you'll be zapped to a previous floor.
To get up to the last floor, first kill the two wizards that can mirror
themselves twice. They will stop coming back then. Until then, stay away from
the Hyper Knight who you need to kill next.

After the Mirror Knight is dead, another wizard will show up that can mirror
himself to appear as four. Each illusion zaps you, often from every side. Only
one of them is the real wizard, and with the Hyper Sword in hand you can slay
him. As mentioned previously, to maneuver around them easier, hack down a small
patch of walls for a big field. 

The Druaga is quite tough to beat, because if you have been zapped (absorbed
by the armor), your physical attack will drop down a lot. If you took down the
previous enemies quickly you should have enough defense left to take him down
in a similar fashion. Finally, if haven't done so already, take the key and
the last floor awaits.

Enemies: n/a

Should you use the axe on a wall or the sword to kill anyone, you will be
zapped back to a previous floor.

To complete the last floor, walk into Ishtar (who will disappear), then look
down at point A. It is 7 steps into the 2nd lowest corridor. You will know if
you have done it correctly when a small tower with a lit ball will appear on
the left of Gilgamesh.

Do the same on the 2nd row from the top, it's obviously easier to know which
column at this point.

Finally, enter the middle row and go left all the way. The stone will turn
into Ki, so run into her and return towards the middle of the map. Look down
in this row, at the same point as the other two corridors.


                              CONGRATULATIONS !!

or is it...?

After you finish the game and the credits have rolled, you will be presented
with a special present. Using the following code at the title screen (soft
reset) will turn the DRUAGA sign green instead of red.

                    U, U, U, U, U, U, L, L, L, L, R, R, R

The game restarts at Floor 1, but the puzzles are different. For the level
layouts please check the original mode's maps above.


Floor  1:
`````````

Draw your sword and wait for a green slime to run into you. If you did it
correctly the treasure chest will already appear. Use the pickaxe wisely,
check the treasure section for more details.


Floor  2:
`````````

Find a black slime and kill it from above. The boots will appear and the
movements seem much smoother once again. Miss out and you have to play the 
rest of the game in slow mode, which is most likely not good enough for you
to beat it.


Floor  3:
`````````

Avoid the blue knights at all cost, you should do that anyway seeing that you
are so weak, and kill all the green slimes. The chest pops up, and now you
may pass the blue knights but it's not like you want to take them on.


Floor  4:
`````````

Swing the sword towards the exit door, either on the same horizontal or
vertical line.


Floor  5:
`````````

This is not too easy to pull off. You need to block 5 consecutive zaps without
moving even a tiny pixel, in other words stand somewhere, face a direction and
just block. There are two problems that come with this puzzle. One is that
those magicians stop appearing unless you stand in the dead center of the
spot. Second is that you might not face the direction and a mage will zap your
behind while you stand around.

The latter can be helped by standing a corridor with only one opening, which
you should face. Thus nobody will creep up behind you at all. It is still
quite hard to do, so to save you some frustration here is what I did several
times and it worked well.

Stand in the bottom right corner, but one space to the left of it. There is
very little risk of a mage popping up on the right of you, so face left and
find the exact spot in the center. It may take some tweaking but you might
soon find those guys keep coming up when you are not moving around. If not,
maneuver left and right a little bit until the pixels match just right. It is
not easy to spot with your eyes. After five zaps it is time to pull your sword
out and start a revenge act although that is not necessary to finish the
level.


Floor  6:
`````````

Make a sorcerer set fire to the exit door. Easiest way is to stand one spot
away from the door in any direction and wait for them to do it. Usually they
do not shoot at you if you use the flames but you still want to face them to
block. Not too hard.


Floor  7:
`````````

Wait for the timer to start the red countdown and then use up the pickaxe.
Don't worry, you get a new and improved one straight away just like before.
You may also use the axe once prior to the timer becoming red, but do not use
it up until it starts. It isn't too easy to outrun these knights, but you may
also battle one or two if they become too irritating.


Floor  8:
`````````

Easy: simply swing the sword once you have collected the key.


Floor  9:
`````````

As usual you don't want the sap drink, but for curiosity the chest appears
after you have crossed the ghost. Well, don't, and just head for the exit with
the key in hand.


Floor 10:
`````````

Try to avoid the knights. Find a red slime and keep a few spots away. Draw
your sword and then run into a wall so your guarded side is facing the slime.
Hopefully it will zap at you while you look silly running into the wall, but
the chest will appear and you will the last laugh. If you are having trouble
getting the slime to zap you, find another spot but also don't destroy your
pickaxe while drawing. Keep the button pressed all the time to avoid this.


Floor 11:
`````````

This one is a challenge, as you first need to avoid all enemies until the red
countdown starts, then kill all five mages while the will-o-wisps patrol the
area. First find a safe corner to hide out in and just wait. The mages won't
re-appear until you move again. As soon as the timer starts, go hunting and
hope they show up at good places. You may want to do this near your starting
position so you can grab the treasure quickly. Regarding the key, you can pick
that up before the timer is too low, just don't kill any of the mages while
doing so.


Floor 12:
`````````

Kill the enemies in this order: both Slimes, both Druids and then the Ghost.
The tricky part is making the Ghost not follow you all the time, or killing it
by accident.


Floor 13:
`````````

Step on the door, then grab the key and open the key. Do not go through yet as
the chest just appeared where you started off, and you need that item for
later.


Floor 14:
`````````

This level requires you to run down the timer to the red countdown once again.
In the meanwhile you can collect the key and kill everyone but the ghost. Why
keep the ghost? Because once the countdown starts you want to step into his
way and block 7 of his zaps to make the chest appear.


Floor 15:
`````````

With the dragon potion you can kill the dragon instantly. This also reveals
the treasure.


Floor 16:
`````````

Kill the Mirror Knight first, this means avoiding the mages until then. Once
he is dead you can take those out, or just run for the exit.


Floor 17:
`````````

Draw your sword and run into the outer wall. The treasure chest pops up -
you grab it - and make for the exit as usual.


Floor 18:
`````````

Avoid the ghost, if you touch him then it's bye-bye chest. Avoid him until you
manage to open the door, then grab the sword and leave, killing whatever you
like in the process.


Floor 19:
`````````

The dragon needs to breath fire for at least six spaces long. This mean you
either have to lure him to an open spot, or hack through some walls to make it
easier for him to do so.


Floor 20:
`````````

This floor is pretty tough if you want the treasure and it's of course a great
benefit to have the power potion. Here's the solution of making it pop up:
"You have to kill everyone, and the last thing you kill has to be somewhere on
the middle row. The game can be kind of finicky when it comes to how strong
Gil is, but if you've gotten all of the items so far, you should be able to
succeed. You might have to kill yourself and try again to reset Gil's health
to maximum." [Thanks to Pluvius for this great tip. Worked for me.]


Floor 21:
`````````

First you may want to kill the ghost that's around, then find the key but make
sure one of the Mirror Knights is around because you need to kill one within
~5 seconds after collecting it or it's no treasure for you pal. They will most
likely zone in one you instead so don't worry too much and after the last
level you should be toughened up, mentally at least.


Floor 22:
`````````

This is the first different treasure than on normal mode, because there is
none. And if it were here then only a sap drink so don't look so be happy the
level is quickly over.


Floor 23:
`````````

You need to start by killing a Blue Slime, then a Wizard, another Slime and so
on. When the last slime is dead the chest will appear unless you screwed up
the order. Slime, Wizard, Slime, Wizard, Slime, Wizard, Slime.


Floor 24:
`````````

Walk through a blue will-o-wisp from the bottom, i.e. a row below you going
up. They follow a certain path so you can think ahead where they will go next.


Floor 25:
`````````

Again, no treasure.


Floor 26:
`````````

Tough, you need to dodge the druids and not block their zaps until you manage
to open the exit door. Get your personal revenge afterwards as you run back
for the package.


Floor 27:
`````````

Uh-oh, break your axe in exchange for a necklace. You get a new pickaxe on
floor 29 but that means you have to do without for the next level.


Floor 28:
`````````

Due to the fact that you are without an axe in the floor, you may want to
keep the ghost alive so he destroy walls for you. It's risky of course, but
it's also risky to have to walk through all these ropers. Speaking of ropers,
you need to stay in contact with one for around 3-5 seconds for the treasure
chest, sounds weird but you can survive it. Just walk on top of one.


Floor 29:
`````````

A simply task is at hand. Draw your sword and press the START button on your
controller. You immediately have the best pickaxe flashing in your inventory
(unless you moved around for some reason) after unpausing the game. Great
stuff, now hack your way towards the exit - the real one that is.


Floor 30:
`````````

So you have this great new axe, but for this floor you are not allowed to use
it until the door is opened. Too bad as there are so many enemies around. The
ropers are ok, the fire can be walked through by now and the dragon is slow
anyway. That leaves the knights which you may be able to avoid if route to
the key / door is lucky.


Floor 31:
`````````

First take out all the wizards as they will get in your way. Once all four are
gone, stand at point A, draw your sword and keep holding it as you point the
hero north. Be careful not to lose your shiny new axe here by accident. After
~10 seconds the chest will be up. If you can't see it in your screen then try
holding is as long as feasible. The blue will-o-wisps won't harm you and the
blue slime tend to be very slow. If they are close then simply kill them
beforehand.


Floor 32:
`````````

You need to kill the dragon when it's facing down. It will stop when you are
nearby so this shouldn't be too hard. Just make sure it's facing the right
way or you have to go away a few blocks and wait for it move into the right
position.


Floor 33:
`````````

Seek out the two red slimes and slay them before any other foe. This might
be dodging the ghost and mage a lot. After the slimes you can kill them and
collect the new shield.


Floor 34:
`````````

Grab the key and cross over a Mirror Knight. You may need to kill him or just
run for the exit after you have the book.


Floor 35:
`````````

Would you have killed two wizards and then block a zap from the slime, a chest
would come up. It's no good though, so ignore this last sentence and just
fetch the key and leave.


Floor 36:
`````````

Find the Lizard, draw your sword and wait for it to cross over you. This
should make the chest appear and only deal small amounts of damage.


Floor 37:
`````````

Kill a roper. They are quite tough so make sure you don't let them leech on
your back and take long swoops in the corridors. After one is down, touch the
ghost by either trying to kill it or just passing through. The chest will now
appear with a new defense improvement.


Floor 38:
`````````

Block a spell from the side, i.e. with your sword drawn. This isn't too tricky
but it might help if you get rid of some walls around you to move around more
freely.


Floor 39:
`````````

Get rid of the annoying enemies in the vicinity, e. g. ghost, blue slimes and
the sorts. Now watch out for one of the will-o-wisps as they can still harm
you. When the coast is clear, run into the outer wall and don't let go for
around 10 seconds.


Floor 40:
`````````

Once you kill any enemy the treasure chest will already appear. Seems to easy?
Sure is, that's why the time-accelerating potion you get from it is better
avoided. Finish the level without bothering about it.


Floor 41:
`````````

Should you have been unlucky or silly enough to grab the potion on the 
previous floor, here's the antidote: Stand on the exit door, block a zap and
grab the chest. For anyone else this is a quick key-and-door-only level.


Floor 42:
`````````

Not sure if this treasure is optional, but you may want to get it anyway to be
on the safe side. Avoid any contact with the red will-o-wisps and you should
see it when you collect the key.


Floor 43:
`````````

If you wait around too long on the starting spot then you automatically pick
up the treasure item, which is a sap potion. So don't make this mistake and
get a move on.


Floor 44:
`````````

After a few levels of useless junk, you are back in the good treasure. And of
course a nice tough challenge awaits you. First make it to the exit door
without the key, then collect the key. All this without blocking a single
spell of the large amounts of magicians. I'm quite sure you can still walk
through the fire though.


Floor 45:
`````````

This one can be extremely tough depending on the starting positions. You need
to collect the key for the treasure chest to appear, but it's not all that
simple. Tap the directional buttons only, do not walk smoothly. You may draw
your sword to defend against the knights but they are most likely going to
kill you. Additionally, you are not allowed to break any walls. Now you may
take the other treasure chest that was seen from the start, as previously it
would have held a time accelerate but instead you get a great sword. And if
you are wondering, once you picked up the key you can stop tapping Gil around.
 [thanks to Pluvius for explaining this in great detail.]


Floor 46:
`````````

Hopefully have a Dark Yellow Slime on the same screen as the Dragon. What you
need to do is kill the Dragon while one of the Slime's fire is still burning
on the floor. Time this right for a new necklace. There are more than one
slime which helps a lot. You may also want to kill that ghost right away.


Floor 47:
`````````

I'm not sure you need this item here, as the chest it would unlock on the 49th
floor is not available on 'Another Druaga'. You may want to get it anyway to
make sure. Simply get touched by a red will-o-wisp around 7 or 8 times.


Floor 48:
`````````

To get the chest, destroy the walls in all four corners of the map. This means
you will have a nice 4-block square in each corner.


Floor 49:
`````````

No treasure this time around, which is good because that army looks mighty
tough.


Floor 50:
`````````

It doesn't matter where you start, but it's obviously easier if you have the
key and door nearby. Collect the key and open the door before you come in
contact with any enemy. Blocking a zap is ok though. Once you open the door
the chest will appear as usual.


Floor 51:
`````````

Destroy exactly seven walls and press the SELECT button. Obviously you want to
do that at the start of the level to quickly grab the chest.


Floor 52:
`````````

Easy enough, slay the silver dragon and grab the contents of the chest.


Floor 53:
`````````

Stand at point A and destroy the south wall. Simple enough, just avoid all
those hordes of enemies along the way.

Stand at point A and destroy the north wall. Again, simple but lots of foes
to avoid.


Floor 55:
`````````

You may get this by accident, but an empty box represents itself once you
break down a wall. Pointless really.


Floor 56:
`````````

It's another empty box on this floor. It will appear if you have your sword
drawn and absorb a zap with the hyper armor you picked up earlier. Useless, so
don't let your guard down.


Floor 57:
`````````

Do not collect the key until I tell you. First step on the door to make the
stone into the faux Ishtar (Succubus). Then defeat it in a single stroke.
Repeat this step two more times and the chest will finally appear. Now collect
the key and leave.


Floor 58:

First clear the wall south of point C. You may also want to try and lure away
and enemies in the area. Start at point A. Draw your sword and walk down to
point B, then back to A and finally through C.


Floor 59:
`````````

This is just like the normal tower's floor. First kill the two wizards, then
the Hyper Knight. Ignore the other Knights as much as possible to keep your
defense up. Also do not get zapped by any magician as it decreases your
strength too. Kill the Wizard that can split into four images. You will know
when the correct one is hit as the Dragon appears. Kill it in one hit and
then prepare for Druaga himself. He'll throw lots of spells at you but should
go down pretty quickly if you picked up all the necessary items so far. Now
you may leave via the final exit door.


Floor 60:
`````````

Should you use the axe on a wall or the sword to kill anyone, you will be
zapped back to a previous floor.

To complete the last floor, walk into Ishtar (who will disappear), then draw
your sword and look down at point A. It is 7 steps into the 2nd lowest
corridor. You will know if you have done it correctly when a small tower with
a lit ball will appear on the left of Gilgamesh.

Do the same on the 2nd row from the top, it's obviously easier to know which
column at this point.

Finally, enter the middle row and go left all the way. The stone will turn
into Ki, so run into her and return towards the middle of the map. Draw your
sword once again and look down in this passage, at the same point as the other
two corridors.

                              CONGRATULATIONS !!

05.)                    CAST                                         G0500
===============================================================================

SLIME:
``````

Green:        The most basic form of slime. Slow and hardly moves around. No
              real threat but one has to consider the lack of power-ups in the
              first few levels, so they aren't exactly push-overs with your
              slow weapon draw skills and missing boots.

Black:        Shows up early, perhaps slightly faster than the green ones.

Red:          Zap-eager slimes.

Dark Green:   I've seen this guy shoot through walls and sometimes destroy
              them, plus he likes to jump around a lot.

Blue:         They enjoy zapping around, and can destroy walls while at it.

Dark Yellow:  Actually more like light green. These guys like to lay down
	      fires on the floor. By the time you see them you can most likely
	      walk through fire, making them not much of a threat at all.


KNIGHT:
```````

Blue:         The easiest of knights to defeat and appears early on in the
              levels already.

Black:        Not much different to the blue knight, might be slightly
              stronger.

Mirror:       Called Mirror Knight because one side is black and the other one
	      white. He powers through the level in hyper speed (thus the
	      name), like he is on drugs or something. Let's say "adrenaline"
	      to keep this guide PG-13.

Hyper:        The strongest knight and usually you don't want to take this guy
              on unless you have a very good reason to. 

Lizard Man:   Brought back for Namco's Soul Calibur series, this guy is pretty
              weak in this game though.

Red:          Seems quite tough in defense but very slow movements.


MAGICIAN:
`````````

Mage:         The earliest of magicians, can zap and teleport, the basic
              stuff. The easiest to avoid and kill.

Sorcerer:     Can both zap and lay down fires around you which will kill you
              until you get the protection treasure.

Druid:        They look silver/white, and their zaps destroy walls, literally.
              Powerful stuff, but also helpful in clearing paths even for you
              to reach them quicker for some slaying.

Wizard:       He wears brown and his spells go through walls so do not feel
              safe in a closed-off corner.


GHOSTS:
```````

Mage:         Lays down fire.

Druid:        Zaps and destroys walls.

Wizard:       Zaps plenty at you, but pretty easy to defeat.


ROPER:
``````

Green Hand:   Comes fairly early in the game and quite easy to defeat.

Red Hand:     I suppose slightly harder to defeat.

Blue Hand:    Tough nut to crack.


DRAGON:
```````

Quox:         They like to breathe fire that consumes the entire row or
	      column. They are easier to kill than knights in my opinion, with
	      several treasure items making giving you the upper hand.

Silver:       see above

Black:        see above


WILL-O-WISP:
````````````

Some levels feature them but they also start appearing when the timer reaches
50 seconds and start patrolling the area.

Blue:         Protect yourself with the blue ring.


Red:          Protect yourself with the red ring. 


MISC:
`````

Succubus:     Takes the image of Ishtar but don't be fooled. Dies quickly.

Demon Druaga: Likes to seek you out while going through walls. He's the
              toughest and last enemy you will fight and it requires a lot of
              strength plus defense to survive in battle.

Ishtar:       The real one shows up towards the end of the game.

Ki:           Although popping up during the game, you are rescuing her so
              she has no hard feelings towards you. You can kill her, but you
              will regret doing so.

Gil:          You are the hero...Gilgamesh.

YY.)                    REVIEW                                       GYY00
===============================================================================

The story is quite simple. Gilgamesh needs to rescue Ki from Druaga's tower.
One starts on floor 1, and each floor has enemies plus one key that will open
up the door to the next floor. Each floor also contains a treasure chest that
will pop up when a certain criteria is met. This can range from a simple "kill
three slimes" to sometimes really obscure. And there are many secrets and traps
awaiting in...THE TOWER OF DRUAGA.


Gameplay:  5/10

At first it looks quite bad, but over time you get better with power ups and
getting used to it. If the game wouldn't be so brutal in the difficulty. The
controls are quite bad an the enemies are overwhelming in evil attack forms. If
you collect enough items, which you have to find out painstakingly cruel ways
(i.e. die 1,000 times), the latter parts of the game actually become bearable.
The problem is, that missing just one item might screw up the rest of the
floors. Can you imagine getting through the later stages without the winged
boots? It would be impossible. Then again, I assume it would be so impossible
that one needs to restart and do it "properly". Each floor does have a chest,
finding out is like a puzzle. Unfortunately with so little lives it is only
possible to solve them by dying and replaying the early levels over and over
again. Frustration alone will make many players give up on this at the early
stages.

Update: With the game boasting another 60 levels in 'Another Druaga', I've
decided that the game has enough re-playability value to increase the score
from a 4. Also this seems to stay in my head, something a lot of other lousy
games out there do not. Seems a lot more 'classic' looking back at it now.


Graphics:  6/10

Not too shabby, and for 1985 there isn't much to complain about. The items look
good, the maze a little basic but this was even in the arcades and a game isn't
defined by its graphics, right? Well some enemies might have been designed
better than just give them extra colors (i.e. Dragon Quest syndrome) but even
the dragon looks good for the 80s, and in 2D.


Sound:     5/10

Repetitive, sorry to say. 60 floors of the same tune isn't fun. It's ok for
that early in the games' evolutions but it could at least have a little
diversity.


Overall:   5/10

A classic, and no wonder it has been re-released over and over again, as well
as spawned several sequels. Unfortunately it's nowhere near as good as one
would think a 'classic' should be. If you get really into it then perhaps you
will enjoy hacking through this, but it would be very hardcore. Hopefully by
using a walkthrough it will ease the pain of finding treasure and improving
Gilgamesh so he can make it up the tower and rescue his precious Ki. As a final
note, the NES got a sort of prequel to this game, called "The Quest of Ki",
also released in Japan only.
