Katherine strategy

Jump towards Katherine and hit her with a high slash attack. Once your feet hit the ground, jump away from her and repeat. If you happen to stun Katherine, kneel down in front of her and attack repeatedlye. Running away does not work against Katherine because her whip will be able to hit you anywhere.

Saving ammunition hints

-Pick up and toss the powder kegs instead of wasting your ammo. Also, throw your enemies whenever you have the chance. Save your ammo for the enemies that can use long-range attacks against you.

-Do not save your pistol ammo and dynamite. Instead, use these against the regular enemies since they normally will not work against the Bosses.

Rating 3


You don't have too many magic attacks to use, so only use magic if you can defeat at least two enemies with one attack.

Wolvington strategies

-Focus on his movements and onceyou reach him, do not move. Let him come near you. When he gets inside your reach, press Z to pick him up and start moving towards the wall on the right. Stop a few steps before you reach the wall and throw him. Immediately sit down. When Wolvington gets up, start slashing him with the sword. Since he is so near to you, he will not be able to use his magic or fists.

-Jump towards Wolvington and hit him with a high slash attack. After that, quickly attack Wolvington with a low slash to force him back. Once done, quickly jump towards him and repeat. Wolvington will shoot magic attacks at you. Be prepared to dodge them. If you stay fairly close to him, he will not shoot but will instead try close range attacks.

-Carry Wolvington up, then get near to the end and throw him. Get closer to him. Get down and hit him on the leg. He cannot use magic because you are near him, and he cannot hit you because you are down.

Marrow strategies

-Wait by the pit and hit the parrot when you see it fly towards you. After hitting the parrot three times, the bridge will appear. Go across the bridge and use a jumping high slash attack on Marrow. After hitting Marrow five times, the parrot will pick Marrow up and fly to the opposite side of the screen. Immediately jump up to the platform and wait for the parrot again. Keep repeating this strategy.

-With at least 25 bullets, start on the pit and pull yourself back until you are touching the wall where the door is supposed to be. Crouch every time you hear Marrow shooting. Try to shoot him back as you crouch, but try not to expend too many bullets. The parrot will make a different sound each time. Be ready, as it will fly straight towards you. This is when you should shoot it. Hit it three times, then the bridge will open. Once it is set, jump onto it and stay in the middle. From there jump towards Marrow and make an aerial slash (sword attack while jumping). Right after doing it, and while still on the air, pull yourself backwards again to the middle of the bridge. Repeat this until you have hit him five times. This must be done four times before he finally dies. Note - When attacking him, try not to jump too high or he will most likely shoot you in the head. Also, do not get too close to him; always chase him in the distance and stay on the bridge when attacking him.

Secret areas

Level 2
In the area prior to the battle with Le Rauxe is a tall outpost. Climb up to the top and notice the small white cloud directly to your left. Jump onto the cloud. It will support your weight. You will also notice some more white clouds in sequence. Jump from cloud to cloud, get the Catnip power-up, then proceed to the platform towards the secret area.

Level 13
This area is tough to reach. Once at the end of the level, enter the Boss fight with Redtail. He will start to fire his pistol at you. Dash over and dodge until you reach the end of the small sandbar. Get a running start and jump as far as you can into the water. If you are lucky you will land on a small platform hidden in the water. The platform will take you to a skull and an extra life. Get them both and return to the battle with Redtail.

Level 14
Prior to the long corridor that leads to Omar, there is an invisible platform just before the overhang starts. Get a running start and jump onto it. The platform is positioned against the wall. The platform will take you up into the final secret area.

Red Tail strategies

-Begin by hopping up onto the platform above you to avoid being torn to shreds if you remain on the ground. Stay up high to avoid most of Red Tail's attacks. Once you are up above, try and stay directly over Red Tail as he runs back and forth. When he jumps up to your platform, kneel down and attack when he lands from his jump. He will then jump back down to the ground. Stay up there and repeat this until Red Tail has been defeated.

-First, get onto the platform where Red Tail stands. He will likely come down to get you at first. This is when you have to gain advantage and get to the right-hand side of the platform. Stay near the edge, but not far enough to fall down. If you fall from the platform you will probably have to start again. Once at the right edge of the platform, Red Tail will probably throw knives at you. Jump in between them to dodge the attack. When Red Tail jumps up to the platform, quickly jump and slash him with your sword while he is in the air. After that, quickly slash him again (but do not crouch) then quickly perform your third attack. He will dodge it and go down again. Run away from him so that he does not bash you on his way down. Repeat the same procedure until he has been defeated. Note: The technique is effective because when you slash him in the air, he becomes temporarily stunned, giving you a chance to attack him again. Also, if you do not crouch, you can move freely and dodge his attacks.

Gabriel strategy

Jump up the disappearing platforms to the top, then jump to the right and hit the switch on the mast in order to tilt the cannon so that it is pointing at Gabriel. The next time Gabriel fires a cannonball at you, it will hit him instead. Jump back up the platforms and repeat this until Gabriel does himself in. Fend off the enemies that hop down to fight you and avoid the explosions while you are hitting the switch.

Aquatis strategy

Use your sword to hit the three tentacles and get them out of your way. After that, run to the right edge of the platform and toss a stick of dynamite into a small hole just behind Aquatis by holding the button down. The dynamite will explode in the hole and shake a stalactite loose from the ceiling. The stalactite will fall and damage Aquatis. Immediately run as far to the left as you can to avoid Aquatis' tentacle frenzy then repeat the strategy. Note: There is no need to stand on the small floating platform next to Aquatis.

Reaching difficult places

-Jump and throw dynamite to reach difficult locations.

-Use the Catnip power-up to get the items that are usually out of reach. However, you must be fast because the Catnip will not last very long.

Defeat the following enemies at the indicated levels by using the corresponding strategies:

Robber thieves and cutthroats (levels 3 and 4) - Dodge their arrows and knives and attack them with a high slash.
White and brown guard dogs (levels 5 and 6) - They are very defensive. Your sword will rarely do damage against them. Use your pistol on them.
Bear sailors (levels 7, 8, and 13) - They will try to grab and crush you. If you get grabbed, quickly do as many movements as possible to escape.
Red Tail pirates (levels 7, 8, and 13) - They are most vulnerable to a punch attack immediately after they swing at you.
Crabs (level 7) - Use a Magic Claw.
Peg leg pirates (levels 9 and 10) - They will be stunned if you hit them in their peg leg. They also hate to be punched.
Crazy hook pirates (levels 9 and 10) - After they swing their hooks at you, run in close to hit them.
Mercats (levels 11 and 12) - They will shoot tridents when you are seen. Stay out of sight and come in for a sneak attack.

Royal Tiger Guards (level 14) - They hate to be picked up and thrown.

Omar strategies

-Omar has protective shields circling him, so your special attacks are not going to do any damage to him. Drop down to the area below and look at Omar to see what type of shield he has around himself. Omar switches between a fire shield and an ice shield. If you see a fire shield, climb up the ladder and follow the right path. Climb down the next ladder and go to the right, then take the ice sword and return to Omar. Shoot an ice bolt through the opening in Omar's shield to do damage. If you see an ice shield, climb up the ladder and follow the left path, then climb down the next ladder and go to the left. Take the fire sword and return to Omar. Shoot a fire bolt through the opening in Omar's shield to do damage. Keep doing this until Omar has been brought down. After that, climb up the ladder and ride the lift up to the top. Time your jumps over the lava and Omar's attacks, then jump over to him. Once you are next to Omar, attack him with your sword to do damage. Then, go over to the opposite side and repeat those tactics.

-When Omar has a fire shield around him, do not shoot with a fire sword or his health will go up. If he has an ice shield, do not use an ice weapon.

Le Rauxe strategy

Jump towards Le Rauxe and, once you come down from the jump, attack him. Quickly crouch and attack La Rauxe again then jump back to get out of the way of his attack. If you get too close to a wall, jump over Le Rauxe to the other side of the room then start your attack pattern again. Do not stand still for very long.
