Stage 2: Dark Forest
When the level starts, you are confronted once again by the wizard.
Wizard: You have been doing very well against the emperor's magic, I see.
Mickey: Oh, hiya wizard! What are you doin' here?
Wizard: I have come to give you this magic turban.
Mickey: Gee, thanks! But what's it do?
Wizard: With this turban, you will have the power to perform magic and to
remain underwater for a very long while. Use it wisely, and be careful.
Walk to the right to put the turban on.
2-1: Start by jumping up to the first platform and then to the right. Destroy
the blocks and then take a careful jump to the sloping platform and jump to
the right. Destroy the blocks and drop into the hole to find a secret room.
Enter and open the Golden Box to get another Heart Container. When you exit,
you will be back at the start of the level. Jump up two platforms and head
right watching out for the plant that drops spikes. Jump up to the next
platform and stomp on the leaf. Pick it up and throw it at the Golden Box
to the left of the plant. Get the coins and go back to the platform to the
right of the plant. Destroy the leaf again and walk to the right. You will
come to two plants with a platform to the right with a magic lamp on it. You
must make a tricky jump onto a plant and over to get it. Go right further
and swim through the water. On the other side, open the Golden Box to get
some coins. Now walk right and bounce up the three spring branches up to the
left. Power up a magic shot and destroy the three worms. Jump up to the next
platform and walk all the way to the right. Bounce up to the block. Jump all
the way up and go right avoiding the leaves. Now you must jump across big
leaves that are falling. Time your jumps for when they are falling towards
you. On the other side is the level exit.
2-2: Get the magic lamp and enter the tree. Shoot the wall and it will open.
Now destroy the two crabs and get the magic lamp. Swim up watching out for
the green worms. At the top, destroy the crab and swim right. Shoot another
wall, take care of the crab, and get the magic lamp to your right. Swim up,
deal with the crabs, and swim to the left. Get the magic lamp and swim up.
Watch out for the four green worms and deal with the crab at the top. Shoot
the wall and crab to the fight and exit the tree. Instead of jumping up on
the branch, jump over it and straight down to a door. Inside is the store
with more items available. You will now be teleported to the area right before
the boss, which is another
dog like creature. He shoots his grass skirt at you and jumps back and forth
to each side of the screen. Four fully powered magic shots takes him down,
I didn't even get hit. To the right is the exit.
2-3: Go right and use the branch to jump up to the higher ground. There are
totem poles that try to smash you with clubs. When they strike, jump on top
and over them. Continue and you'll find more totems. Jump on top of the second
one and jump to the platform to get a magic lamp. Further right is some totems
over the water. Time your jumps and try not to fall in. After that, the short
level is over, the exit is near.
2-4: Hop up on the branches while avoiding the worms. Towards the top, you
can get a magic lamp. Walk to the right and you will see a falling leave.
Jump on it and take it all the way down. Jump on the branch and across the
pit. Go right and jump on the blocks, it's boss time again!! You now have
to face a huge spider. Quickly get the magic lamp. Use the turban and fire
fully charged shots at his chin. Avoid him by staying on the low blocks and
dodge his webs when he fires. It took me five fully powered magic shots, and
two jumps on his chin to win.
