A. INTRODUCTION
This FAQ was begun November 2003, more than a year after the game was
originally released. Please discuss the FAQ in the GameFAQs forum instead of
emailing me with general suggestions; specific additions after the FAQ has
reached 1.0 will be accepted at the email address above.

B. GENERAL HINTS AND TIPS
I. Choose your character
1. ToeJam:
Extra Shot Power, Speed and Jump Power, Mailbox Rebate, Good Money Luck
2. Earl:
Stronger Funk Fu, Can Eat Bad Food, , 2 for 1 Sushi, increased life
3. Latisha:
Double Rhythm Power, Double Treats, Risky Present Luck, Can Ride Tornados
4. (downloadable) Suteki
5. (downloadable) Earl Bot
6. (downloadable) Nerdy ToeJam

II. Play Tips
An important way to maintain your status is by taking advantage of Earl's
attribute of getting double sushi when buying from the sushi to go peddler.
When buying sushi with Earl, you get 2 orders of sushi for $3 instead of the
single order you receive when you order sushi using the other characters. You
can then sell the sushi to the shopkeeper; you get $2 for each piece of sushi.
In other words, you can buy as much sushi as you can, then sell it back, and
you get $4 back for every $3 you spend. Note that you can only have $99 at a
time tho, but you can keep increasing your sushi presents (I've only checked to
around 200; there might be an upper limit eventually, and there is an upper
limit on total number of presents you can have, and I think it's 500). So, if
your cash is maxed out, you can sushi 33 times, getting 66 sushi, and then can
sell 50 of them to max out your cash again, meaning you increase your sushi
stock by 16 every time you go through the process. You can also use some of
your cash to buy things like funkify notes (which I also haven't reached an
upper limit on) from the Gospel Choir, then use your remaining cash to go
through the process and max out your cash again. The best level to do the
process on is the Snowy Zone warp level, as there is both a sushi seller and a
shopkeeper on the level. You can do it between Grassy and Urban levels at an
earlier stage of the game, however.

You need to pay to get past bridges ($4 each time). But if you look around,
you'll often find you can get past without paying the toll, or that you need to
pay one toll, but can cross to all areas after paying only a single toll.

Get used to using the map by hitting the white button. The icons will tell you
where you've encountered various things (or the relevant items if you've used a
"show" present).

Use the black button to talk to earthlings with shining rays over disco balls;
you get bucks.

Converting all Earthlings on a level gets you extra points.

Entering a zone gives you info on what's available through the opened doors on
the level. Searchlights will show up if you have available objectives to
complete on a level (I think), but not if you simply have some items available
that were not needed for an objective. Namely, keys.

Tag Santa Funk's elves to get presents.

Fake mailboxes count as earthlings in terms of clearing all the earthers. But
spooks don't.

You can't jump out of the water; you push against an edge and you exit.

Lay down a flurry of funkify notes to take down ducking enemies.

Pause and notes you've sent out will return to you

Smack the moles with funk fu when they surface, not funkify notes

III. Present Combos
Open funkify notes present while using Icarus wings, and you can fire notes
while flying.
Opening an extra points present during a timed present gives you double points
(further restriction?).
Open a money present when any timer is going on and the timer will last longer

IV. Cinema, Earl taping TJ (when choosing TJ at least). Very long and boring.
Go to Earth to retrieve Lamont, the Funkopotamus,'s vinyl collection.  And
convert some humans. You can watch this on the OXM demo.
You start on a different level than in the demo tho. It's a warp level.
You get cinemas when entering levels of the Gospel Choir. When you leave you
also get a short loading cinema. Changing Zones gets you long video cinemas
which, once the level loads, you can skip.

The game's site (along with being the site for the other TJ and E games, which
were on the Genesis) is http://www.tjande.com/



C. ZONES
Each zone's name in this guide is followed by the number of keys needed to open
the door. Note that the keys stay with you and are not consumed by opening a
door with them.
The play notes vary with each level, and are mostly pretty minimal beyond the
goals for the level. If there's a good strategy for a hard level that I've come
across, I've included it.

I. *Grassy Zone*
If this is your first time playing, use this level to figure out the basic
commands; there are no enemies here, other than falling over the edge, and I'm
not sure that that hurts you in the warp levels. So run along the path, get a
couple of keys, fool around with movement and the camera to see that behind the
hills to the right are some pieces of cake.  Get a third key, move on, find all
7 keys on the level, notice that you get 100 puffy stars when you get all the
keys, etc.
You need 5 keys to enter the first level. Once you have 5 keys, a spotlight
will light up to tell you where the level is.
You can also change characters on this level on a rise on the hill.
You can also get a promotion or ID presents using, uh, a guy in a carrot suit.

1. Funk Fu You 5 keys

F. DEMOS
Found on the first Exhibition Demo Disc for Xbox and on the XBox Game Disc 13
from the December 2002 issue of the Official Xbox Magazine, the demo is too
hard to be a demo.
Laugh Blaster is called Funkmobile in the demo.
The level is similar to Bad Food Mega City in the Urban Zone, but isn't
identical.
