Recommended Sega Mega Drive / Genesis 6 button controllers to use:

EPISODE 1:  "Night of the Mutants"
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PAGE #1(Stage Select Cheat #1)
  1. Pick up knife, Iced Tea, and a bomb and go to the next panel to the right.
     
  2. Mortus draws Gravis on the right, run to Gravis and fight using a fury of kicks and punches to take him out. After, that another Gravis draws up on the left using a combination of kicks and punches
     
  3. Go down to the other panel. 
     
  4. You will be met with a nice set of four drums in a small panel. Jump on to the top first barrel, turn left a little until you reach the edge of the first barrel, set the bomb and jump / run to the right side of the panel. Since the last barrel didn't blow off, that's good, use the uppercuts to take out the barrel.  After that you'll find Superhero Fist, pick it up and go left to next panel.
     
  5. Run up to Gravis and throw the knife at him, that'll send Gravis flying to destroy the cage. When he gets up, using a combination of kicks and punches to finish him off, pick up Roadkill and low kick to open the manhole to the left and hop down into the next panel. 

    To me, the quickest way to go the manhole, is when he is down for the second time, I pick up Roadkill and kick the manhole until he Gravis gets up, knock him again, and then kick the manhole again until the manhole is break, now finish off Gravis for good, and now the arrow points down straight away.
     
  6. You’ll be in “Down In The Sewers …” panel, Run to the right hand side of the screen, and turn left a little until you have reached the left side of the background caged Sewer hole, then you’ll see two Strigils will pop out of the water - Stay close to one of them and start doing Serial Double Punch on the first Strigil which is the one who is front of you until you get the scissor kick finish, don't let them surround you. Keep them both on one side of you. After you have done the scissor kick finish, run to the same Strigil and do the same Serial Double Punch process again until you get the another scissor kick finish, this time, the same Strigil will be defeated, now focus on the 2nd Strigil and do the same Serial Double Punch process until you get the scissor kick finish. If they latch onto the pole after reappearing, knock them down with an uppercut.
     
  7. After defeating two Strigils, the way down to the next panel will appear to the right.  Hop on down to the next panel.
     
  8. Fight against Strigil the Assassin. Start by swinging kick him to the left while hanging on the pipe, when he falls down, go to him do Serial Double Punch. Sometimes, he will disappear under the water and jump up behind you on the pipe above. Knock him down with an uppercut.
     
  9. After defeating Strigil, go left to leads to the next panel.
     
  10. Push the box all the way to the left. And jump up onto the box, then throw the switch down to open the trap door. Finally, push the box through the trap door to extinguish the trash can that is on fire below, after that, go down through the trap door.
     
  11. Go to the right and give the grate door cover a couple of uppercuts. This will reveal the way to the next panel.
     
  12. Knock Gravis through fragile panel borders by beating the snot out of him. Keep on him and knock him off the ledge.
     
  13. Make quick work of the Flying Creature that will attack from the left with uppercuts or jump kicks.
     
  14. Then, Take out the Flying Creature that hovers near where Gravis has fallen, with simple jump kicks.
     
  15. Finally, go exactly to the left side of the screen and run to the right at full speed and jump across the gap in the broken bridge to the right.  "Oh Yeah!" – 15% Complete

    To me, after I knocked Gravis through the
    dividers and knock him off the ledge, I managed to take out the Flying Creature that hovers near where Gravis has fallen first, just in time to take the next Flying Creature on the left with ease, then all I got to do is run to the left and run to the right hand side of the screen in full speed and jump to the right.

EPISODE 1:  "Night of the Mutants"
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PAGE #2 (Stage Select Cheat #2)
 
  1. Put Roadkill down to sniff out a bomb for you that is hidden behind the panel.
     
  2. Pick up Roadkill & the bomb, and jump to the right and use the bomb on the unsuspecting door and jump to the left side of the screen, landed on Iced Tea, making it easier to pick up the Iced Tea at the same time when the bomb explodes.
     
  3. Get ready to destroy the four Cocoons that drop down from above. Two uppercuts for each Cocoon should do it. 

    If you fail to destroy the Cocoon in time, it will drop out a Cocoon Crawler -
    Scorpion type like creature, as shown in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989) movie. No problem, smack it around with a series of serial low kicks.
     
  4. After the Cocoon has been destroyed, a Strigil will appear to the left. Try to get in front of Strigil and Serial Double Punch while moving the direction button to the right, after you got the scissor kick finish in, run to in front of (very close to) Strigil and do another Serial Double Punch while moving the direction button to the right, so that he’ll move back towards the right and he’ll knock himself into the fan or having the scissor kick finisher to send him flying right into the fan.

    Note: I destroyed only three Cocoons instead of 4 Cocoons with uppercuts and suddenly Strigil comes up instantly on the left.
     
  5. Use Roadkill and let him crawl under the spinning fan to turn of the fan switch for you to the right. 
     
  6. Pick up Roadkill and now all that you have to do is uppercut the now immobile fan four times to destroy it and drop down into the next panel. 
     
  7. Push the box into the fan on the left and then run to the right to avoid damage when the box explodes.  The fan blades will end up destroying the box and the explosion will take the fan with it. Now the way to the next panel is exposed.
     
  8. Walk through the next panel to the left.
     
  9. Uh, oh! There will be a Flying Creature on each side of you. Hop on top of the box and either uppercut or dragon kick them until they are reduced to paper shreds.
     
  10. Jump up through the left panel. A couple of well placed uppercuts at another Flying Creature.
     
  11. Hop onto the pipe to the left to retrieve a bomb for your inventory, until you have drop Iced Tea or Superhero Fist, not Roadkill!! And then hop down to the right. Walk a bit to the left until you have reached the end of the floor, throw the bomb, it’ll fall down onto Gravis, Then jump up onto the pipe again and pick up Iced Tea or Superhero Fist.
     
  12. When this mutant has been defeated, a way down to the panel will be discovered.
     
  13. The combination in order to gain access to the next panel is the first clock should read three o'clock and the second clock should read nine o'clock. Use the switch to the left in order to stop the first hand when it reaches three on the first clock and to stop the first hand when it reaches nine on the second clock.

    When it is entered correctly, the lock explodes and the way down to the next panel is revealed.
     
  14. Drop down into this scene, you can see things are about to get ugly. You will meet two Cocoon Crawlers that are pacing around on the floor. To dispose of both of them, continue to use your serial low kicks until they are destroyed. 
     
  15. Do you see the liquid cells in the background? Pull out Roadkill to sniff out an Iced Tea for you to drink. Then pick up Roadkill quickly, just in time one of Spawn Mutant hatches out (you should have 2 Iced Teas by now – as well Superhero Fist).

    Get up in their face when they hit the ground and dispose of them as quickly as possible before the next one hatches. Start by Serial Double Punch, from there; keep holding down the punch button, while moving the direction button up and down to do the combination moves until destroyed! Its works with Gravis & Stylx as well.
     
  16. When you are finished dealing with this major threat - total of 8 Spawn Mutant, at this point, you should have one quarter of your health bar gone, anyway, drink one of them now and take the 2nd Iced Tea.
     
  17. Go to the next panel on the right and meet the boss of  Episode #1 - Big Mama Dragon (Spawn Mutant Queen)

    To defeat her, I start by walking to front of her, from there, start doing Serial Double Punch until she will throw a temper tantrum and will squirms upwards on the fifth punch. Now is your chance to get under her. Quickly run right under her.  See the oil drum?  Good, now hop over it and wait until she will light the oil drum on fire with her fireballs!  Quickly push it underneath her before she can destroy it and watch the fireworks! 

    While the oil drum is doing the dirty work, I do this for fun of it, turn left a little facing towards Alissa afterwards, then release Roadkill, use Superhero Fist, drink Iced Tea and then watch. From that point, after she has defeated, my health bar is completed full. "Oh Yeah!" – 30% Complete

 EPISODE 2: "Welcome to the Temple"
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 PAGE #1 (Stage Select Cheat #3)
 
  1. Pick Roadkill and then let him loose again on the left side of the screen. He will uncover a Superhero Fist for you, hidden behind the panel. 
     
  2. Finally, scoop him up and head through the next panel to the right.
     
  3. Styx the Monk is waiting to test out your martial artist skills. I see there are two ways to defeat Styx:
     
    1. You definitely want to get up in his face and start using your Serial High Kick Tornado. When he is down, wait for him to come up and repeat the process.
       
    2. Or Start by Serial Double Punch, from there, keep holding down the punch button,  while moving the direction button up and down to do the combination moves until he is knocked down, wait for him to come up and repeat the process.

      Either way, it won’t give Styx a chance to start hopping on his hydraulic staff, but if he starts to hop on his hydraulic staff, either uppercut him or dragon kick him. Remember; stay as close as possible so Styx can not use his staff effectively!
       
  4. After you are done with him, Mortus will draw another one behind you. This time, use your Superhero Fist.
     
  5. After you defeat him, head on through the panel to the right.
     
  6. Put Roadkill down and he will sniff out a bomb for you towards the left of the panel. While Roadkill is sniffing, stand next to the boxes on the right and do Whirlwind Jump Kicks on the top box about ten times to reveal an Iced Tea.
     
  7. Pick up all three items – Iced Tea, Bomb & Roadkill and jump down to the next panel.
     
  8. There will be a hole to the right with a Flying Creature hovering over it.  Leave him alone for now and run to the left where the four boulders are stacked.
     
  9. Hop on the first one and walk to the left. Then hop down in the open space you have made and push it to the right, until that hole is covered. Now take out the two Flying Creatures that are hovering around.
     
  10. After disposing of them, take out the bomb in your inventory that you have found in the last panel above and use it on the three remaining boulders. Go through the left panel, do eight uppercuts to punch through the steel beam.
     
  11. Next, see those two explosive boxes?  Good, now push them together from the right and push them to the left of the panel.  Also, while doing this, duck the fireballs from the skull torch.
     
  12. Finally, get as far away from the first box as you can and serial low kick the box about ten times to make them explode. This action will also take out the skull torch and will show you the way down into the next panel.
     
  13. Hop down into the next panel and serial low kick the crap out of the little Cocoon Crawler.
     
  14. Instead, punch out the weak wall to the right and gain access to the panel full of power-ups! Drink Iced Tea first from # 6. Then pick up the 2nd Iced Tea & Superhero Fist. After that, you should have the complete full health bar with a spare Iced Tea as well with Roadkill & Superhero.
     
  15. After you have decided what to take with you, hop on down into the next panel and enter the tournament.
     
  16. Welcome to the Kung Fu Tournament for mutant graduates. The first set of opponents that you will have to face will be Strigils. Do the same process from Episode 1 – Page 1 # 6: Stay close to them and do Serial Double Punch, until you get the scissor kick finish in, Strigil by Strigil at a time, don't let them surround you.
     
  17. After defeating them, Gravis will be your next opponent – do the same process from # 3b (my favourite)
     
  18. Then Mortus will draw in Styx who is dying for a rematch against you.  Get in close and do either the same processes from # 3a or 3b
     
  19. Finally, Mongoria (Cammy from Street Fighter clone enemy) will be drawn in to challenge you. Let Roadkill run loose and Mongoria will be scared to death, literally. Pick up Roadkill and hop into the next panel.
     
  20. Instead, bring out Roadkill to find a hidden grenade to the left of the panel. Pick up both Roadkill and grenade. At that point you should drop either Superhero Fist or Iced Tea! Then walk up to the edge of cliff and throw a grenade at Strigil, don’t forget to pick up either Superhero Fist or Iced Tea afterwards!
     
  21. All that you have to do now is run and jump on the boulder where Strigil once stood and go through the panel to the right.
     
  22. Two Flying Creatures will try to knock you off. From that point, hang on for dear life in this panel and start swing kick to the right until Styx (who is tossing fireballs) breaks through the panel border.  Now make your way across the rope towards Styx while holding the direction to North-East direction, that way, your legs is all the way up and moving to the right at the same time, so that you’ll avoid from getting hit by the fireballs.
     
  23. Climb all the way to the right until you have reached onto the exactly right hand side of the screen, jump down to the ledge that Styx was previously on. From there, try to punch / knock Styx of the cliff.
     
  24. Finally, take out any remaining flying creatures, as for me, I do Whirlwind Jump Kicks when flying creatures come towards me, one by one, while staying exactly to right hand of the screen at the same time, that way, flying creatures can hit me all they want, you’re still safely on the ledge and plus making sure any flying creatures don’t go to opposite direction, otherwise you’re in trouble.  "Oh Yeah!" – 45% Complete

 EPISODE 2: "Welcome to the Temple"
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 PAGE #2 (Stage Select Cheat #4)
 
  1. There will be two Flying Creatures to take care of. Uppercut them or jump kick them a couple of times to turn them into paper shreds.
     
  2. Jump up on the crossbeam that is in the background.  It will raise the steel spike door. When it reaches the top, hop down and roll under it! The next panel is to the right.
     
  3. Put Roadkill down, he finds is a question mark surprise. Mortus will draw in a Styx to keep him company.  Use the Superhero Fist! After Styx is defeated, he will drop an Iced Tea for you. Pick up both the “?” and Roadkill. I got another Iced Tea; go down to the next panel.
     
  4. Your next challenge will be Mongoria. Take out Roadkill in order to scare Mongoria to death. You can repeat this process through two more fragile panel borders.
     
  5. Pick up the grenade, leaving Roadkill behind and go to the panel below you.
     
  6. You will see a Strigil perched up on top of a well and he will be creating fireball with his crowbars especially for you! There is a box that is hidden to the left. Hop on it and start walking to the left. Then, push the box to the right against the well.
     
  7. Hop on to the box and throw the grenade at Strigil. Next, destroy the box by uppercutting to reveal a bomb. Drink Iced Tea from # 15 and pick up both Roadkill & Bomb and jump onto the well, head through that panel to the right at the top of the well and enjoy the ride.
     
  8. Sketch will be inside the well and hanging on for dear life. As you are being lowered into the well, drop the bomb down first to eliminate the giant bear trap located at the bottom of the well, either hold your legs up to keep out of the worms way until disappears and then drop all the way straight down to the bottom of the well - the quicker way or swing kick the four worms that happen to stick their ugly heads out – in that order 1) Right hand, 2) Left hand, 3) Right & 4) Left hand - the slower way. Each one takes about five hit to defeat.
     
  9. When you reach the bottom, pull out Roadkill to find a hidden knife for you. Pick up both the knife and Roadkill, head to the left panel.
     
  10. Mortus will draw in another Styx for you to play with. There will be punching bags there, leave Styx to do the dirty work for you by using his hydraulic staff to project fireball at you. Just remember to jump over the fireballs when they come your way. In the following order: 2nd bag, 3rd bag and 1st bag
     
  11. When the punching bags have been destroyed, start the same process from # 3b (my favourite) on Styx and that’s it. After you retire Styx, hop on down into the next panel.
     
  12. A box is in the middle, jump on top of the box and start Serial low kicking the box until the box is destroyed, drink the Iced Tea and pick up another Iced Tea.
     
  13. Stand right beside the punching bag, turn left a little bit and throw the knife to flip the switch, the punching bag will rise. Now is your chance to run under the bag quickly. Finally, head through the panel to face the Old Kung Fung Master!
     
  14. You are now in Kung Fung's Chamber! Watch his hands. When they light up, you are going to have to jump over the balls of fire when it comes through the water on Chamber floor. Left means it is coming from the left and right means it is coming from the right. When he emerges from the background, he will come at you with his explosive fingernails. Jump over his explosive fingernails and let them stick to the wall. When he is near you, do dragon jump kicks or punches closely at him to wall bounced him, causing him to knock back into his own exploding fingernails!
     
  15. Repeat this process until the old man is finished.  He will drop out of existence. From there, I do this for fun, release Roadkill, drink last Iced Tea to get complete full health bar and start doing all the combinations or Whirlwind Jump Kicks until the old man is destroyed / blown up to bits. "Oh Yeah!" – 60% Complete

 EPISODE 3: "Curse of the Dead Ships"
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 PAGE #1 – (Stage Select Cheat #5)
 
  1. Pick up Roadkill and totally kick some Mutant Spawn butt. They will ooze out of the reefs in the background, two at a time and you will have to destroy about six in all. Remember, do not let them surround you and watch out for their acid puke attacks.

    As for me, firstly, I go all the way to the right hand side of the screen, and start kicking butt using the same process from Episode 2, Page 1 # 3b (my favourite) on all six of them, after, wait for the next Mutant coming out from the reef on the right side, and kick Mutant butt, and then, jump to the left and break Mutant butt that just come out the reef, after that, jump or run to the right hand side of the screen, and kick Mutant butt, that way, the other Mutant who just come out the reef will pike the other Mutant that you’re fighting at the moment, and then break the last remaining Mutant butt. In that result, I didn’t lose any health at all!
     
  2. When all six Spawn Mutants have been reduced to distant memories, move on through the panel to the right.
     
  3. You will see a big mutant shark head sticking out of the sand with razor sharp teeth. A Spawn Mutant will also ooze out of the reef to the left. Release Roadkill and he will crawl inside the head. Jump to the left over Spawn and do the do the same process from Episode 2, Page 1 # 3b (my favourite) on Spawn Mutant or do Serial Double punch, while moving the direction button to the right, so that the Spawn Mutant will be eaten by mutant shark and Spawn Mutant will say "BRO-THER?!?".

    From there, keeping doing the Serial Double Punch while moving the direction button to the right until you have reach the mouth - when it clamps down, you let go of the direction button, while keep holding down the action button with the "Turbo" feature activated or if you have auto fire feature on the Sega 6 button controller e.g. Honey Bee Competition PRO Series 3, you just set it to "Auto" and watch. With approximately ten good shots, this hideous monster will be destroyed and will leave you a bomb. Flip the switch back to "Turbo" if you're using Honey Bee Competition PRO Series 3 Sega controller, pick up both Roadkill and the bomb then head down into the next panel.
     
  4. Be very careful in this panel. The ground is littered with land mines and a Flying Creature is trying to push you into it. Move left a little and wait until Flying Creature come towards you, then you do a Whirlwind Jump Kick while moving the direction button to the right, repeat the same process until Flying Creature is destroyed.
     
  5. After you take down the Flying Creature, run and jump onto the first rock, After landed on the first rock, hop onto the next left rock, use the bomb, facing towards the other two mines on the left hand of the screen and start jumping on the rock by rock until you have reach on exactly the right hand side of the screen. Now all the mines destroyed – 2 for the price of 1!!
     
  6. Mortus will then draw in a Mongoria for you to play with. Don’t use Roadkill to dispatch her. Instead, use your martial arts skills to dispose of her because then and only then will she drop an Iced Tea for you! 
     
  7. Let Roadkill loose and he will find a hidden Superhero Fist behind the panel. Pick up both Superhero Fist & Roadkill and go through the panel to the left which is now accessible. Head on through it.
     
  8. Hop on the box and walk to the left. Then, push the box to the right, down to the next ledge. Next, hop down to where you just dropped the box and flip the switch to the right. This will drop down two power-ups, a grenade and a knife.
     
  9. Collect them by hopping on the box to where the box just was. Pick up the grenade, until you have release Roadkill. Finally, push the exploding box over the edge to the left to destroy the huge cavern spike that you can not see but will being destroyed and destroyed the Cocoon Crawler also - 2 for the price of 1!!
     
  10. Now hop on down, if the exploding box didn't destroy the Cocoon Crawler, you can take out the Cocoon Crawler with a series of serial kicks. This will reveal a path to the right but wait, there's a shortcut. Instead, bring out Roadkill to find a shortcut passage for you. Go down through the shortcut, leaving Roadkill behind!
     
  11. After taking the shortcut, there will be two question marks in this panel. You should have three items – grenade, Superhero & Iced Tea in your inventory, I can’t skip it, and so I pick up the question mark on the left. Depending on what you got:
     
    1. If I end having a bomb, walk to the full left side of the screen, move a little to the right and throw a grenade, then pick up the Iced Tea.
       
    2. If I ended having another grenade, so walk to the full left side of the screen, move a little to the right and throw a grenade, then pick up the 2nd grenade.
       
    3. If I ended having a knife, put up the knife, walk to the full left side of the screen, move a little to the right and throw a knife, then pick up the grenade.
       
    4. If you end up another Iced Tea, throw a grenade and pick up the 2nd Iced Tea.

      After you have got yourself sorted, head on down through the next panel.
       
  12. "On The Other Side..." Panel: You will land on a ledge to the left and there will be a Pelagus hanging around shooting out of his spring and slime-ball attacks at you.  Depending on what you got:
     
    1. If you have a grenade - Well, wait on the ledge and when Pelagus comes into range, let him have it with a grenade.
       
    2. If you don’t have a grenade – wait on the ledge and when Pelagus comes into range, keep doing Whirlwind Jump Kick while doing Whirlwind Jump Kicks, try to stay on the ledge.
       
  13. After Pelagus is taken care of, two Strigils will appear from out of the ground, wait until after the first Strigil have clicked the two crowbars together to make a noise while saying “Come down, you chicken!” to you at the same time, start doing Serial Double Punch, while holding the direction button to the right at the same time, as soon you have the finish scissor kick, Strigil will flying backwards and fall down from the ledge. If not, keep on doing the Serial Double Punch until you have the finish scissor kick and jump back up onto the ledge immediately, moving the direction button to the left and move a little to the right and follow the same process until both Strigil is defeated.
     
  14. After they have been trashed, the panel will open up to the right. Drink one of Iced Teas to get full health, pick up the grenade and head on through.
     
  15. When you arrive, there will be a Spawn Mutant to deal with. Do the same process #3b while moving the direction button to the right, so that Spawn Mutant will hit the post with spikes.
     
  16.  Go to the left side of the screen, then run and Somersault Leap Forward to the right over the post in front of you is spikes covered and holds a switch to the right side of it, but be careful, try not to touch the land mine underneath this post. After you successful Somersaulted over the land mine, move a little to the right, facing the two spiked posts and throw the grenade. Now the two posts have been destroyed!
     
  17. Finally, walk to the right of the panel and Alissa will say “The mine may sustain a lighter creature” and then she says "Well Done, Turner!"  "Oh Yeah!" This marks the end of Page #1 – 75% Complete.
     
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
 EPISODE 3: "Curse of the Dead Ships"
 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 PAGE #2 - (Stage Select Cheat #6)
 
  1. Drop down and pick up Roadkill, then hop right back up because if you look closely, there are land mines in between the surprise question marks - don’t pick them up! Or if you're brave enough, I double dare you to pick one of the mystery items without touching one of the land mines and hoping to get either the bomb or knife, probably another Superhero Fist if you're lucky.
     
  2. When you have made it across the rope at the end of the panel, go below through the down panel.  
     
  3. If you drop in, you will be in the "On Deck" panel. Do Whirlwind Jump Kick ten times on the top one box to break it open. From there, you’ll should have three items – Iced Tea, Superhero Fist & Roadkill. But there is the 2nd Iced Tea from the box that you’ve broken with Whirlwind Jump Kicks. I suggest leaving Roadkill here and picking up the 2nd Iced Tea – you never know and head on through the panel to the left.
     
  4. Depending on which panel you go:
     
    1. If you go to the left panel, stay on the right hand of the screen and get ready to Serial low kick the crap out of any Cocoon Crawlers that appears out from the hatch on the left. You will have to defeat eight of these little buggers before the arrow appears. When the arrow does appear, hop on down to the next panel.

      Note: If you've picked up the bomb from any “?” in # 1 above and leaving Roadkill behind in # 3, you can jump up and hang above the hatch on the left, you can then drop the bomb down the hatch to eliminate all Cocoon Crawlers at once. Lovely and sweet... Lovely and quick clearance... All you have to do is head down the hatch to the next panel when the arrow appears.

      "Inside..." panel: Take out the Cocoon Crawler by activating the switch (or if you've got
      the knife from # 1, use it to activate the switch) and watch the piston pounding the living daylights out of it. Then turn off the switch. Flip the switch from "Turbo" to "Normal" or "OFF" position on either the Performance SUPER PAD or Honey Bee Competition PRO Series 3 Sega controller. Turn on the piston by activating switch one more time, this time try to press the action button repeatedly and quickly as possible to expand the piston. Repeat the same process until the piston is fully expanded as far as possible, using the piston to break the door down, pounding your way through into the next panel. 

      When the door is destroyed, turn the switch off, drink the Iced Tea and pick up
      Roadkill. Head on through the panel to the right.  
       
    2. If you go to the panel on the right, this panel is labelled, "Inside the Largest Freighter." Roadkill is in this panel, if you have left Roadkill “On Deck” panel. The goal in this panel is very simple.  When a Cocoon drops down, hit it with three uppercuts. There should only be three that drop down into sight.  After you have completed finishing off the third Cocoon, hop on down to the next panel. From there, I’ll drink the Iced Tea & pick up Roadkill this time before heading down to the next panel!

      The way this panel is set up is as follows: Gravis will be waiting for you by the steel door to the left. Also, there is a magnetic crane with an exploding steel ball mine moving along back and forth overhead. Finally, there is a switch to the right. Remember the old saying, "Kill two birds with one stone?"  Well here is how you do it. Get Sketch near the switch. When the crane is above Gravis, who is near the door, flip the switch. The steel ball will drop on Gravis and take out the steel door as well!  This will then expose the way to the left panel. 

      As for me, firstly, I’ll go to Gravis and fight him using the same process from # 3b and then run to the switch on the right and drop the ball to take out the steel door. Enter into the next panel.
       
  5. You will be in the "Next Room!" panel. There is a steel crane moving back and forth. Wait until the crane is moved to left hand side of the screen to avoid the moving crane hitting you while jumping to the right side of the screen and then jump carefully across between the crane and steel ball mine to the switch on the other side of the panel. Alissa is a little joker and tells you not to blow it. When you get to the switch on the right, make sure that the magnetic crane is right over the steel ball mine.  When it is pick it up with the magnetic crane by throwing the switch. Disaster averted. All you have to do is to hop on down through the next panel.

    Note: If you've come to the "Next Room!" panel from "Inside the Largest Freighter." panel, the switch will be in reversed view, this time the switch is on the left side of the screen.
     
  6. In this scene, you will have to swing kick four of Mortus's power kegs. Having disposed of all four power kegs, you will have to contend with two Strigils. Quickly dispose of these two bozos with a Superhero Fist and head on through the next panel down. Flip the switch back to "Turbo" on the Performance SUPER PAD Sega controller. Alissa will confirm that there is a nuke down there and will tell you to keep going.

    Note: I'll let you know a little secret about the quickest way to destroy all four power kegs at ONCE! Firstly, stand right away from the first power keg and turn left a little, then
    press and hold the Action Button. In a second or two, you'll lose a considerable amount of health while Sketch is tearing a piece of paper from the background and make a paper airplane out of it. The plane will travel to the edge of the panel, creating massive damage to all four power kegs in one go. When the first power keg blow up, walk to the left a little, then two Strigils will appear, fortunately, the paper airplane circled back around and done a massive damage to the first Strigil who was hanging on the top. All you have to do is use Superhero Fist on the second Strigil and head down through the next panel.
     
  7. In this scene, move a little to the right, release Roadkill to find a hidden knife behind the panel for you. Pick up both the knife and Roadkill. Now move a little right, Mortus will draw in Gravis for you to play with. Jump over to the complete left of the screen and make quick work of him by punching and kicking him to the right, using him as tools to break the piston on the right.

    When he draws in another one, do the same thing. However, the second one might actually destroy the
    piston along with it which is perfect.

    Note: Wall-bounce or throwing the 1st Gravis into the
    piston will cause him to break the piston in very 1st attempt!

    Mortus actually thinks that the third time is the charm, so he will draw one more in for you to deal with. This time, start mixing up your martial arts combinations, knocking the snot out of him down. When he falls, the way to the next panel is revealed.  Head through it.
     
  8. This panel is labelled "End of Hull."  There will be a Flying Creature to uppercut around. Start uppercutting the Flying Creature first, and then start uppercutting the box from under until it breaks and comes up a surprise question mark, after that jump up to the top left ledge, turn a little right and throw the knife to activate the switch above for opening the door below and pick up the “?”.

    From that point, you should have more than half of health left, but if you’re completely very, very low on health, don’t worry, just keep uppercutting the box until it breaks. When you’re all done, drink the last Iced Tea which you should have the half of the health left, after that you have a choice of picking up the “?” - if you get the bomb, for laughs, use it to blow up Mortus and Flying Creature will appear or get ready to for the final showdown and it is through that door to the right my friend.

    As for me, I pick up the “?”, I end up getting another Iced Tea, sweet! I wish I have the Superhero Fist, so that I can use it to make a quick work on the remaining Flying Creatures after I have destroyed Mortus, but then again, it’s much better than getting a knife, as it’s very useless to me. Now, I’m ready to face Mortus!

    Sometimes, I get Superhero Fist after picking up “?” when I've got 1/4 health left - lining up between the last border line of 1st inventory and the first border line of 2nd Inventory meet. Perfect! That's exactly what I needed to destroy the Flying Creatures real quick in a few seconds before releasing Alissa!  
     
  9. "Nuke, Ready To Launch!" There is a switch on the right and throw it repeatedly. This will activate the left rocket thruster. In order to hit Mortus, you will have to lure him down to the bottom of the rocket and hit him five times with the rocket thrust. Each time you connect with Mortus, Flying Creature will come out, but you're more better off ignoring them and continuing with connecting with Mortus until he dies. To lure him down there always stay within the first two ledges.  Always jump up and then jump back down. When he is on the ground floor near the thruster, let it rip - remember to flip the switch from "Turbo" to "Normal" on either the Performance SUPER PAD or Honey Bee Competition PRO Series 3 Sega controller before each time you turn the switch on the right. Do not forget, it is best to deal with the Flying Creatures on the ground level as quickly as possible. When all remaining Flying Creatures have been destroyed, a switch will appear to the left of Alissa. Hit it quick and Alissa will be released...?

    After I have destroyed Mortus, I jumped onto the second platform and destroy the remaining Flying Creatures. After that, I do the following for fun, firstly, I release Roadkill and drink Iced Tea, ending up having complete full health bar with extra Iced Tea remaining in the inventory – it's like I haven’t lose any health at all through out the whole time and still be able to released Alissa just in nick of time!

     ***A TALE OF TWO ENDINGS***
     
  1. If Alissa is released and is hugging you while the nuke is blowing up, then CONGRATULATIONS!  You have totally beaten the game and will get the true ending with 100% Complete. "Oh Yeah!" 
     
  2. But if Alissa is trapped in the nuke while the explosions are going off then she has drowned and you will have only beaten 90% of the game. However, your consolation prize is the alternative ending. SEMI-CONGRATULATIONS are in order.

Comments on 27-9-14:

My very first time playing this game was back in 1997, that time I was 17 years of age!! The exact same month and year when FIFA 97 was available to buy in PC World, I could've bought it on the same day when purchasing my new PC but I didn't know at the time until 28/11/97 17:25 when I've purchased Gravis GRIP Multiport from Electronics Boutique, a copy of PC CD-ROM: FIFA 97 game came with it as a bundle - sweet!

It was all started when
I really needed a PC desperately for myself to do my college work instead of using Amstrad PCW 8256 (2nd home computer purchased from my dad) while studying City & Guilds 726 IT course at City of Westminster College.

So my dad & I went to Staples Corner PC World on
Saturday 12/4/97, spending about an hour browsing around the whole store, searching for a most suitable computer, but as soon I saw Packard Bell 9021XE PC for £2,499!! I immediately got very excited and wanted to buy it because of the look and design of the PC, special features like 33.6Kbps data/fax & speakerphone Modem, Radio Card, separate Media Select Control Panel, remote control and many more.



Ending up having a small argument between with Kamilla and my Dad in the process because Kamilla (PC World Sales Assistant) saying Hewlett Packard 7370V PC is the best, just because of the brand name. This PC had very tiny Media Select control (Easy Access Buttons) built onto the top of the Desktop case very similar to Compaq Presario 4180 PC, no £1,000 worth of free software, no remote control or Radio card and its costs £500 more than Packard Bell 9021XE PC without any insurance included and my dad just agreed with her, but I disagree with both of them and I hated the tiny Media Select control built-in on top of the case so much. In the end, having no choice, my dad had to purchased it at 3:40pm as my 3rd home computer, spending in a total of £3,044 (I've paid him back with interest bit by bit in the end) including the 5 year insurance, over £1,000 worth of free software including Comix Zone.

A few days later after got used to my Packard Bell 9021XE PC, going through, installing and trying out briefly all bundled free software included with the PC via keyboard until 27/8/97 11:33am I've purchased Quickshot Super Warrior Joystick from Kilburn Dixons, I've decided to play Comix Zone more fully, now that I've got a Joystick to play with, during that time, there was no FAQ/Walkthroughs, cheats, nothing available on the Internet.

So I had to learned about everything the long and hard way such as which power up items to use, where and how to get up the items using Roadkill, which paths to go, how to defeat the enemies, etc, etc, etc. Spending huge amount of time playing this game using both Keyboard (for inventory items) & Joystick (mostly for movement) while writing lots of rough notes onto various scrape bits of paper scattered all over around my bedroom, eventually, I've typed up rough version of this guide into word document (can't really remember exactly when I first started typing and saved it into word document) then added a copy of it onto the Internet (can't really remember which web sites I've used) during that year. Some years later on, all FAQ/walkthroughs, Cheats are available on the Internet, but my guide is wasn't included somehow
. The funny thing is that all up to this time now I've still have all the paperwork including receipts as proof of purchasing Packard Bell 9021 XE PC.
 
I love this game so much, and it's one of my favorite PC / Sega Mega Drive games. I want to say thanks to Sega and the rest of the cast who design this beat-up game. I got to admit that I was completely hooked as it was both very interesting and tricky at first, very addictive playing this game, couldn't really help it with playing this game and won't stop until I finally completed it! Here how my Comix Zone game progression went while playing this game as follows:
  1. Keep on falling in the bottomless pit on the broken bridge - ending of Episode 1, page 1.
     
  2. Dying against Big Mama Dragon, as she keeps on shooting fireballs / swatting at me - ending of Episode 1, page 2
     
  3. Either Flying Creatures or Styx keeps on knocking me off the ropes or off at the edge of the cliff - ending of Episode 2, page 1
     
  4. Eventually got past Episode 2, page 1 and defeated Kung Fung in one go after leaving Roadkill behind, that was too easy and obvious - Episode 2, page 2.
     
  5. Keep getting killed on lava bit until got discovered a shortcut by releasing Roadkill while picking up the items from the ceiling and box exploded on both huge cavern spike and Cocoon Crawler - Episode 3, page 1.
     
  6. Getting killed by two Strigils without using Superhero Fist after destroying 4 power kegs - Episode 3, page 2.
     
  7. The box got exploded and died after picking up Mystery Item in End of Hull panel.
     
  8. Getting killed each time by both Flying Creatures and Mortus as gaining not enough health before hand after uppercutting both the box and the door.
     
  9. Eventually destroyed Mortus but it was too, too late as Alissa was trapped and drowning, causing to having alternative ending with only 90% of the game completion.
     
  10. Then finally, I've 100% completed the game without using any continues or cheats by following my own rough guide step by step.
I don't even know the total of how many or times I've spent played this game - that's the thing, but I loved it and up to this date, I still play this game on my spare time having 100% game completion with ease each time without using any cheats at all, knowing all every single detail from my guide by heart!

I can't stop laughing as it's too funny like throwing a knife to Gravis causing him sending flying through and breaking the cage at the same time to get Roadkill out, again sending Gravis through the dividers and into the bottomless pit, getting stung by Cocoon Crawler while trying to punch them in the air, setting up the bomb on either Gravis or Mortus and BOOM!

My personal favourite is when the ending after Kung Fung is defeated, I immediately do in this order for fun: Release Roadkill, drink last Iced Tea to get complete full tank of gas (health) and start doing all the combinations or Whirlwind Jump Kicks (sorry, I can't really help it) while the old man is sinking into the water / blowing up to bits.
I loved the way he says usually phrase "C ya", then Alissa says "Well done Turner!" and then I join in and say "Oh Yeah!", raising my right hand up and down whilst Sketch says all at the same time. The list just goes on and on! Oh, boy, I really love this game so much, bringing me back lots of good memories!
