|-I.----------------------- THE INTRODUCTION -------------------------|
=======================================================================

Since the game itself is pretty simple, I didn't think a complete 
walkthrough would be necessary. So instead I wrote this Boss FAQ. In 
this document I will tell you how to beat each boss in this game. 
Basically the best strategies and moves to defeat each boss. Since this 
is a Boss FAQ, this document will not go into things like enemy list, 
item list, story etc.



=======================================================================
|-II.------------------------ THE CONTROLS ---------------------------|
=======================================================================

=-Start-=
pauses the game, on the pause screen you can see the number of smiley 
faces you have collected, how many lives you have, and what stage you 
are on.

-=Select-=
has no use in the game.

=-A-=
when you are just standing on the ground it makes you jump, it thrusts 
you upward while in the water or while climbing.

=-B-=
when standing on the ground or while floating in water it performs a 
head-butt, if you press it in the middle of a jump you will do 
somersaults. Flipping over once points your head toward the ground, 
flipping over again puts you upright again. To use this somersault as 
an attack, you have to point your head toward the enemy.

=-Up-=
moves you down when you are climbing on a wall or tree, also it's how 
you climb into the skull elevator at the end of each stage.

=-Down-=
moves you down while climbing on a wall or tree

=-Left-=
moves Bonk left

=-Right-=
moves Bonk right

The most useful thing about the somersault is the ability to use it as 
an attack. If you are facing head down, you will deal a powerful blow 
to whatever is under you. This attack is what I call a "upside-down 
pound". Remember that, because you'll hear it a lot in the rest of this 
guide.



=======================================================================
|-III.---------------------- THE BOSS GUIDE --------------------------|
=======================================================================

  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=-The 1st Mini-Boss-=
  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Just so we don't start out in a state of confusion, this is the boss 
that looks like a big dinosaur with a goofy look on his face. Anyway, 
his weak point is the white cap on the top of his head. His main attack 
is releasing bubbles from his nose. The best strategy here is to first 
jump up on his arm, then jump straight up again so you are right over 
his head. Now, do as many "upside-down pounds" as possible. Each time 
you hit his head, it should shoot you back up, making it easy to score 
hit after hit in a row. With a little practice, you should be hitting 
him about 5 times consecutively before he knocks you down. When you 
fall, just jump right back up there and start the cycle again. The 
bubbles he shoots can be broken with a head-butt, but it is just as 
easy to avoid them. Should they hit you, they won't hurt you much 
anyway. This guy should be done after about 8 "upside-down pounds".



  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=-The 2nd Mini-Boss-=
  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
This guy's (or girl's) weak point is that gray cap on top of his head. 
In this battle, you will have to make use of the platform they have so 
conveniently provided for you. In the first half of the fight, this 
mini-boss will drop down from above, shoot a star out of his hand, and 
then disappear into a puff of smoke. So for now you should wait for him 
on that platform and do an "upside-down pound" as soon as he appears. 
Try to hit him before he throws his star.  This will work for the first 
5 hits. After that, he will stop disappearing. Instead, he will just 
jump around on the screen firing off stars. Also, he will spend much 
less time on the ground. This means you have to be a lot more 
aggressive in your attacks. Try to stay airborne as long as possible, 
keeping your hits as close together as possible. Give this guy about 11 
"upside-down pounds", and you're ready to move on.



  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=-The 3rd Mini-Boss-=
  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Like almost all of the mini-bosses in this game, this things weak point 
is on his head. Actually, it is the yellow helmet that sits on his head 
that you should be focusing on. This guy has two ways to hurt you, he 
can throw rocks at you, or you can accidentally touch his spiked arms. 
With most mini-bosses in this game, you want to stay airborne as long 
as possible, but that is not the case with this guy. With this guy, you 
want to put time between you attacks. The best strategy is to jump at 
him, "upside-down pound" him and then let yourself land on the other 
side. If you try multiple hits in a row, he will knock you out of the 
sky easily with a couple of rocks. Here, you need to be patient and 
time your attacks in tune with his rhythm. Like in all NES games, each 
enemy has a rhythm. If you learn that rhythm, you will find the easiest 
way to defeat him. This boss goes down in about 12 hits.



  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=-The 4th Mini-Boss-=
  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Here, before you, is the boxing duck. Guess where this duck's weak 
point is... that's right, the white cap on top of his head. Just like 
with the 2nd mini-boss fight, you will make use of a platform. When you 
first fight him he may seem really difficult, but he actually is the 
easiest guy in the game to beat. He has two attacks, a flying boxing 
glove and a charge. So just wait for one of his flying gloves to be in 
between you (who should be waiting on the platform) and him. Now, do an 
"upside-down pound" on the glove to knock it away, and use the reflex 
from that pound to carry you over the duck's head. Just keep pounding 
and pounding on his head, keeping in mind that every now and then he 
will slide across the screen. With practice you should be able to 
defeat this guy without ever getting knocked to the ground. This mini-
boss shouldn't take more than 8 "upside-down pounds" to finish off.



  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=-The 5th Mini-Boss-=
  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Now you get to fight a big van, that's right, the only thing standing 
between you and the final boss is a van called "T3". Anyway, the weak 
point on "T3" here is the little lever that sits just above his 
eyebrow. As usual, you should attack him with "upside-down pounds". 
Besides trying to run you over or stomp you into the ground, this van 
can use attacks borrowed from the four previous mini-bosses. That 
sounds bad, but he is actually pretty harmless. It shouldn't take more 
than 12 "upside-down pounds" to end this battle. When you finish him 
off, he'll start to flash, and then he'll float straight up. Now you 
get to read a nice little message from something called "Princess Za" 
before you blast off to the final boss.



=======================================================================
|-IV.---------------III---- THE FINAL FIGHT --------------------------|
=======================================================================
  
  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
=-The Final Boss-=
  =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
After you finish watching one of the worst cut-scenes ever made, and 
you've sat through the seizure inducing 10-second screen flash, you 
will find yourself face-to-face with King Drool. This guy's weak point 
is his eye, although any hits in that general area of his face will 
hurt him. For the last guy, the fight with him is actually pretty 
simple. Anything he may shoot at you is slow, and easy to avoid or 
head-butt. He himself moves pretty slowly, so attacking him proves 
pretty easy. Watch out for him to vanish, then reappear to try and 
throw you off. When his life is half gone, he'll turn a bright green. 
Now, he'll throw pitchforks at you instead of those flashing orbs he 
was trying earlier. Also, he will almost never leave the air so he will 
become slightly more difficult to defeat, but it's nothing you can't 
handle. In about 12 hits or so, this guy is done, and you are treated 
to another horrible cut-scene. Congratulations...
