FAQ/Walkthrough by DEngel

Updated: 11/30/17

===================================DISCLAIMER==================================
I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
IGN (faqs.ign.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com) to host my FAQs from now on.
Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
hassle in my mailbox.
So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.

Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear
anywhere at the following URLs:

###############################################################################
                                   (E) TIPS
###############################################################################

There is a room (H5 - See the Maps section) where you can refill your energy as
many times as you want, it is on floor 4.

You can jump higher if you are standing still instead of running, I will refer
to this type of jump as a high jump or standing jump.


###############################################################################
                                (F) WALKTHROUGH
###############################################################################
                           Bricklayer J. Gastronomy

Each room will be described the first time you enter it, any other time the
room will just be referred to as you pass through it.

Also you should be able to use your own judgement about whether or not to use
an energy item when you find one.  If you have full energy don't use it, if not
use it.


====
Book
====

The first item that you need is the book and its location is actually marked on
your map with a question mark.

When you first start the game you will notice a bobbing lightning bolt, a
rising flame, and a moving creature.  Everything except the lightning can hurt
you, and the moving creature can be destroyed.

The lightning is actually used to refill some of your energy but you don't need
it yet so leave it.  Run past the fire when it's safe and avoid the slime's
shots as you go left to the next room.


You can't go up the stairs yet to floor 2 but you will be able to soon, the
bobbing "EXIT" is showing you where a door is in the foreground.  If you stand
there and press down you will go south to the next room, do this.


These enemies jump around and die with one hit, also you will notice the
grandfather clock on the left is missing a pendulum.  When you find one for it
you will return here but that isn't until much later.  For now just go south to
the next room.


Duck and shoot the spider, then hide on the right when you enter.  Spiders
usually run towards you and shoot so try to kill them early.  The slime turns
left and right and fires an arc of shots so his pattern is pretty simple to
avoid.  Either way go south into the next room.


Some barrels will be rolling down the stairs when you enter so be sure to duck
and shoot them before they hit you.  When you're ready go right to the next
room.


The skeleton here just walks back and forth and he cannot be harmed.  So jump
to the top of the nearby ledge and jump over to the next one to get around him
as you go right to the next room.


In this room you will notice a pair of ghosts, these enemies can be destroyed,
but in a few seconds they will reappear.  Destroy or avoid them as you run
below the bottles that will fall down, then go right to the next room.


More ghosts here, just avoid or kill them as you enter the door (press up) to
the room north of you.


This large enemy moves much like the skeleton in a past room and like the
skeleton he is invincible.  Jump on the pillow and then up to the top of the
bed, then when the time is right you can jump left over the enemy and enter the
door.  (When entering this room from the north you can jump on the bowl to jump
right over the enemy.)


In this room you will see wraiths bobbing up and down, it's a simple pattern
and they can be destroyed easily.  Just work your way right through the enemies
and go north to the next room.


These two ghosts (though they look different) are exactly the same as the other
ghosts you've faced.  They die easily but they can re-spawn, so do what you
will as you go left a room.


Jump from the bathtub to the very top of the toilet, then you can clear the
enemy.  Jump up from the towel rail to get the book.


=========
Level Key
=========

Now use the bowl to clear the enemy again, then check your map.  Another
question mark is on it, this is the next item.  So work your way through the
rooms again until you get to that room.

As soon as you enter the room you will get the level key.  This allows you to
access other floors.


=========
Left Foot
=========

Go north two rooms and up the stairs to floor 2.


You will notice a rat on your left, these enemies are annoying because they
can't be killed and they're small and fast.  Try your best to avoid them when
you see them, now go right a room.


Quickly jump up to the castle wall to avoid the slime and spider, then work
your way right a room.


Stay on the wall to avoid the axes below then work your way right a room.


Destroy or avoid the barrels as you climb up the stairs to floor 1.


Avoid the falling rocks here as you jump up to get the left foot.


========
Left Arm
========

Go down to floor 4 and avoid the spider as you go south a room.


*IMPORTANT*
This is the recharge room, when you are getting low on health you want to make
it to this room.  You can then stand in the machine in the middle of the room
and hold up until you have full health.  Use the machine now if you need it,
then go south one more room.


Run left so that all the books fall, but avoid the fire as you do this.  Jump
to the top of the chair on the left, then do a running jump to the suit of
armour.  Carefully avoid the fire as you jump to the top of the fireplace and
then jump to the next suit of armour.  Finally jump right above the door and
jump to get the left arm.


=====
Water
=====

Go north two rooms and left one room.


Kill the monkey, then avoid the fire and the slime's shots as you go left a
room.


Jump onto the table as you grab the water (bottle) and jump over the enemy.

===========

###############################################################################

For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
the same idea.

I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
send money, so it's here for those people.


For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
excellent progress on a few FAQs.

If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.

My email address and paypal address for those that want to contribute are both
dan.engel.2017 (AT) gmail (DOT) com

Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
