===============================================================================
Welcome to my FAQ for the Sunsoft game, Speedy Gonzales in Los Gatos Bandidos.

A major section is preceded and followed by a row of equal signs. A minor
section is preceded and followed by a row of dashes. I've written the
walkthrough in a list format. An example follows.

- Do this first.
- Then do this.
* Oh look, a secret area!
@ Here is a note from me. Read it or ignore it at your peril.
- Rescue the mouse!

- Notice the paragraph break above.
- This will help you navigate the guide.
- And here the level ends.

What's in this version (0.36):
- Added an introduction
- Added a bit at the bottom
- Added part one of Snowy Cabins

===============================================================================
                            How to Play (or, The Basics)
===============================================================================
If you're using type A controls (which is what I use, and, if you've played
other games like Super Mario Brothers, it is the control setup that will feel
the most familiar to you), then this is what the keys will be:

*Y: Kick*
Kick is your only attack. Press Y to use it. Pressing Y while moving will not
make you go any faster. 

*B: Jump*
Jumping is what really makes up this game. To jump higher, hold down the
button.

*A: Use*
This key is to use items that you might find on the ground.

*X: Not used*

*Start: Pause*
The game pauses, and time does not pass, nor does anything else.

*Select: Not used.*

*L: Shift the view left.*

*R: Shift the view right.*

DPad: Left and right move your character. Up and down makes him look up or down
      (thus shifting the view).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       What the In-Game Screen Looks Like
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is my drawing of what the game looks like in-game. Everything is labeled
and explained below.

                       `-Heart meter-------------------'
*Lives*
How many lives you have. If you have zero lives and you die, you have to use a
continue to keep playing.

*Score*
How many points you have. 

*Time*
How much time you have left. You can use a clock to add 30 seconds to this
number.

*Cheese*
How much cheese you have. If you get 100 pieces of cheese, you get an extra 
life at the end of the level.

*Heart meter*
This represents your life. You can add to the max by collecting a shiny heart,
or refill an empty one by getting a beating heart. Maximum hearts you can have
is five. If this goes to zero, you die. Some things (such as spikes) will
automatically kill you, regardless of how many hearts you have.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Items throughout the Game
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*Cheese*
Looks like a little spinning cracker. The more you collect, the more points you
get at the end of the round. Every 100 you collect you will receive an extra 
life at the end of the level.

*Heart*
Looks like a beating heart. It'll refill one of your empty hearts.

*Shiny Heart*:
Looks like a heart, only it doesn't beat and looks shiny. It'll add a heart to
your heart meter. If you have max meter (5 hearts) I'll simply refill one of
them.

*Trapped Mouse*
Looks like a mouse...in a cage. Touch it to set it free.
They'll also act like save points, so if you die, you'll come back to the last
mouse that you freed.

*Running Shoe*
It looks like a shoe. It'll make Speedy run at max speed (spinning legs)

*Clock*
It adds 30 seconds to the countdown (that means you have 30 more seconds to
complete the level).

Jumper: Mushroom
Delay Time: Almost none

SPECIAL ITEMS

Stick-Attached-to-a-Pulley
Makes Speedy slide down the rope to a different part of the level.

Cage
Traps Speedy (he loses one life)

Enemies: Crow (1 hit), Stone Dropper (1 hit)

                                  ******Part 1******

SIX MICE TO RESCUE

- Grab the running shoe and speed forward
* Secret area: You can, if you wish, to jump onto the branch on the second tree
* you see. Knock out the stone thrower, and jump to the next few branches back
* to the first tree. On the first tree there is a shiny heart and a normal one.
- Keep on running forward until you reach a yellow sign
- Jump at the pit, and STOP if you are not at full speed (spinning feet)
- Walk forward carefully to not get trapped by the cage
- Jump over the cage
- Rescue the first mouse

- Run down, you MUST be at full speed to make the last jump
- Jump as late as possible to jump over the pit
- Once you are on the other side, stop and jump to the lowest branch

***ALTERNATE (crossing the massive pit)***

Instead of getting to full speed, right at where the sign is, there will be a
large mushroom. Jump on that mushroom, and land on the tree above you. Climb up
it, and then go through the cabin and jump to the next tree. You will now be
able to continue.

***

- Jump up onto the stick-attached-to-a-pulley apparatus and slide down
- Jump up and get the running shoe
- Run forward, and as soon as you see the log, jump on top of it
- Rescue the second mouse

- Run down the hill, and jump before the hill ends onto a moving platform
- Jump across to the next part of the level
- Run forward and jump onto the moving platform-attached-to-a-pulley
- Jump off when the ride ends, and go down the tree
- Run forward, and when you pass the cabin, jump on the tree and swat the crow
- Go to the next branch and save the third mouse
* Secret area: Jump onto the branch with the stone dropper, and jump onto
* the cabin. Drop down to the first roof and grab a 1 up.

- Run forward, and when you pass the next cabin, slow down near the down slope
- Wait for the cage to drop, then go forward
- Wait for the next one to drop too, the move forward
- Grab the next mouse near the yellow sign

- Use the mushroom near the pit to jump onto the gnawed tree
- Jump from that stump to the next tree
- Jump onto the other branch and then save the fifth mouse

- Run back and leap the three pits
- Run forward and get the sixth mouse and leave

                                  ******Part 2******

EIGHT MICE TO RESCUE

- Jump onto the first tree for a clock if you want to
- Grab the shoe, run right, and jump the big pit (at full speed, 'course)
- Jump onto the mushroom for a heart
- Run above or through the log, doesn't matter (take the top if you need a
  heart)
- Jump the pit
- Jump the next
- Jump onto the mushroom, save the first mouse there

- Jump up onto the stick-attached-to-a-pulley apparatus and slide down (jump off
  right before it ends to get a 1UP and a shiny heart)
- Run past the cabin and jump onto the tree with the mushroom
- If you want to, jump to the left from the tree and you can get some cheese
- Jump to the right (off the tree) and onto the next mushroom
- use that to go on top of the roof, and then drop down to the first level of
  the roof to get the second mouse

- Get max speed going down the hill
- Jump off the ramp
- Into the log, out, off the second ramp
- Land
- Run forward for the third mouse
@ Note: if you happen to look up here, you'll see a pulley and some rope. Read 
  the next note for more info.

- Jump over the next pit
- Past the cabin, then FALL down the pit with the question mark in cheese
- Go left and rescue the fourth mouse



- Build up as much speed as possible running down the slope there
- Jump over the two pits
- Run past the mushroom after that to get the fifth mouse

- Jump up the mushroom and run right to get the sixth mouse

@ Note: Before, there was some odd pulley and rope. Here, if you run down the
  two hills and run to the left, you can go up a ramp and back to the area you
  were in before. Jump up the ramp about 1 Speedy Gonzales space away from the
  ramp before you jump to time it right. Land on one of the platforms there
  (still going at max speed) and jump again. Jump over the question mark pit,
  and past the cabin. At the top of the hill, you can jump, and you can ALMOST
  make it to the tree that is attached to the weird pulley, but you won't make
  it. I've tried this. It seems that the purpose of the pulley changed and no
  one removed it, or it was used to indicate that there was something PAST the
  large pit so people don't stay away.

- Jump up onto the stick-attached-to-a-pulley device and slide down (jump off
  early to get the seventh mouse on top of the tree there)

- Build up speed and jump over the pits near the yellow sign
- Run past the log, get the eighth mouse, and exit

                                  ******Part 3******

FOUR MICE TO RESCUE

- Run forward and kick away a crow
- Jump over that there pit
- Run through the cabin and jump onto that ledge there
- Run past the stone droppers and jump onto a branch via a mushroom
- Jump over the next few branches (on top of a stump there's a clock) until you
  reach a fork
- Take the down path onto the roof of the cabin
- Run and jump off the left edge of the roof onto a branch
- Jump to the next few branches until you reach a "ladder" like tree
- Climb up the ladder, and at the top get a shiny heart, a heart, and a clock
- Take the pulley and jump off around the middle (alternatively, jump off at
  the end and jump off the ledge onto the trunk to get the first mouse)

***ALTERNATE (saving the first mouse)***

Instead of taking the down path at the fork, you could take the top path using
the mushroom, then running to the left and jumping onto the trunk.

***

- Run to the right and over a few branches until you reach solid ground
- Run through the cabin and down the hill
- Over the pit and to the second mouse

- Over another pit and take the stick-rope thing down
- Jump off before it ends for a 1up
- Run to the right and onto a tree via a mushroom (watch out for the rocks)
- Get a clock, then jump up for the third mouse

- Fall in the direction of the arrow and run down hill (do not get max speed)
- Run over the variously spaced pits and into another part of the level
- Run down and get the heart (if you are at less than full health)
- Take the mushroom up, save the fourth mouse, and exit the level to meet the
  boss...

                                ******Boss Battle******

Boss: Mr. Angry Dog-Like Animal Who Drops Acorns

Firstly, you'll start on a tree stump. Jump up and get the shiny heart as
quickly as possible. Then, drop down to the lowest branch, look up, and wait
for the boss to drop down. He'll jump twice and some acorns will fall, then
will jump to either the left or the right side (it's random). Dodge the acorns,
and jump to the other side (if he's on the other side), or drop down to ground
level and wait for him. He'll spin down the two branches, then jump twice
again, stirring some acorns. Dodge the acorns, jump and kick. Watch out for the
recoil on the kick: if acorns are still falling, then you'll probably be
knocked right back into them! He'll jump up, and disappear into the canopy
above. Use this time to reposition yourself, get some hearts if you need them,
etc. Leaves will fall down when he enters the canopy. When the last leaf
touches the "keep out" sign, he'll fall down and repeat.

Fight conservatively, and you'll win. It might take a life or two to beat him.

- The...batteries? in the bottom right corner is the boss's health meter.
- Dying will respawn the hearts, but not the shiny heart.
- You can't hurt the boss while he's spinning, jumping, or being dizzy.

- Fall down where the arrows tell you to and get the second mouse to the right

- Jump to the next roof
- Jump onto the fast moving platform, then the next, then onto a stable one
- Jump onto the fast moving platform, then the next, then onto a stable one
- Take out the dog

***ALTERNATE (playing jump the platforms)***

You COULD simply fall down on the gap between the two rooftops, then head to
the right and jump over the next few pits, and onto some falling platforms,
then down a pulley, then onto a vertical platform to get to the same place.

***

- Jump onto the next few platforms (with other ones hindering you)
- Grab onto the stick-pulley device and jump off right when you see the phone
  pole to grab to another pulley. Repeat until you save the third mouse.

- Jump to the right
- Run over the next few pits, and ignore that platform for now
- Jump over the mass of steel at the building and head right
- Run and jump over a few platforms and take out a few dogs (who strangly are
  the same size as you are) and save the fourth mouse.

- Run back and jump onto that platform that you ignored earlier
- Jump onto the rooftop
- Keep going to the right and taking out dogs until you save the fifth mouse
  and leave the level.

                                  ******Part 2******

SIX MICE TO RESCUE

  construction there

- Hop onto the vertical platform there (it's easier if you try from the second
  stair from the top)
- At the top, run left and onto the roofs
- Take out the dog there and then jump onto the next and take out that dog
- Follow the trail of cheese and destroy the dog there
- Walk to the edge, then just fall down (trust me)

- Jump back up, take out the dog, and save the third mouse

- Jump up the "stairs", then onto the construction 
- Get the fourth mouse and jump onto the moving platform

- At the top, make a leap of faith and land on another moving platform
- Hop to the falling platform and then to the stationary one
- Hop to the next few, and run to the right until you hit a wall
- Drop down, run to the right some more to a falling platform
- Jump to the stationary construction
- Then to the next for the fifth mouse

- Jump off and get the goodies (clock and some cheese)
- Run down the slopes, collecting goodies as you go (there will be enemies)
- On the way there should be the sixth and final mouse

- Run to the right and slide down
- Exit

         |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

A - Secret area! Has a beating heart and a clock.
B - Where you need to go
C - Useless, you can get to where it leads through B
D - Same as above

- Go to B.
- Go through the door there
- Release the fifth mouse at the edge

@ Note: This part is tricky. You don't want to jump off at the very top to get 
to the next platform, because you'll hit the ceiling and lose all momentum and 
die a horrible, boiling death in the bubbling acid pools. Okay, maybe there 
aren't acid pools in this *particular* section of the level, but you should 
still follow my instructions. Onwards!

- After the fifth platform, there will be solid ground, so just jump down
- Jump over the bubbling pit of acid on the right and onto a higher platform
- Then jump onto the next platform
- Avoid the two bats as you run right
- Free the eighth mouse

- Go back to solid ground
- Take the platform all the way up
- Jump onto the falling platform
- Then jump onto to the other rising platform
- Spring onto the ledge

I appreciate all questions, comments, suggestions, and concerns. Please direct

Many years ago, a developer for this game sent me the previously-unknown cheat
code  slash easter egg that I submitted to the corresponding GameFAQs cheat
page. I never saved the message or wrote down that developer's name, and it
has long since been deleted from my old email account. If you are that
developer, please email me so I know who you are and can properly credit you.
Thanks!
