Mint's Walkthrough

Things to Know: The left side is a quick overview: what you're supposed to look out for, treasures you may find in the area, what monsters to expect, any bosses you have to fight, and any important information you have to know. Plus pictures.

The right side will go into more detail; where exactly to find the treasures, directions (if necessary), tips, and all in all more detailed info.

The walkthrough will be sectioned into chapters based on the save game title. Got that? Good. Let's get going!

Chapter 2: Underground Trap

Before you head out to Fancy Mel's place, there are several side quests you should do...

Side Quest: Last Hero
Go to the hotel and spend 500G to stay the night. Inside your room you will find a dream stone. This isn't what the good treasure is though. If you choose the sleep option you will have a dream of an Ootang jumping into a stump that you may have seen in Carona Forest. If you jump into the stump in reality, you will come upon a new area and a withered plant within it. Either leave the plant alone or water it with Droplets magic; I suggest the later. Jump on the plant and move to acquire a book called 'The Last Hero'. If you give this to Rod, you will learn a bit of his past and gain four strength-ups.
Also, if you stay at the Hotel again, you can find a Gold Coin at the chair. Third time, you'll find a Silver Coin, and the fourth time, 2 Bronze Coins.

Side Quest: Power Magic Type
Head back to the Underground Ruins and all the way to the stairwell. Instead of jumping on the white platform, run down the stairs until you see the corpse of the Skull Beast. Search it and get another of Mint's Magic Type: Power!

For a little something extra, go to the Lake Ruins for a little monologue... ^_^
Head out of town and go to Mel's Atelier. You can tell by the surruondings why Elena said what she did. Jump on the big star platform to get to her house. Ring her doorbell several times and Poppul Purrels will show up and tell you she's out. To continue with the story, you have to beat each of the Poppul Purrel's play area. Before you begin, you should save your game by talking to the Cockadoo at the rear of the building. Save after you beat each area as well.

World 1: Trumpets
This world has fungie's blowing on trumpet's and has see-saw's. The trumpet sound wave will lower your HP so time yourself carefully.
1st See-Saw: Stay on the left side till it's all the way down. Quickly run to the right and jump to the next platform.
2nd See-Saw: Stay on the right side and the see-saw will move to the right and the next area.
3rd See-Saw: Alternate between jumping on left and right side. Repeat till you get to the next platforms.
Trumpet Game: You have to scare the cockadoo with trumpet sounds. You have to jump on the circles on the floor to sound the trumpet. Scare the cockadoo's and you get points. Scare many at once and your get bonus points. Game over when time's up or cockadoo flies over your head. 500 is high score. You get a high score over 500, you get Silver Coin. If you get over 100 points but less than 500, you get a Bronze Coin.

World 2: Big Swings
This world will have swings. If you get stuck on some areas, try using your magic such as long range attacks and Icicle.
Ball Game: Pick up balls and you get points. Pick up balls with the same color and you get bonus points. Pick up black balls and you lose points. Game over when time's up. 500 is high score. You get high score, you get goody (Silver Coin over 500). If points >100, <500, you get Bronze Coin.

World 3: Giant Balls
This place has a bunch of Fungie's on rolling balls. In some cases, you have to stay on the ball to get to the next area. That means you shouldn't kill the Fungie or else the ball will pop a second later.
Fungie Game: Hit Fungie and you get points. If you hit Fungie while he's underground, Fungie hits you back. Game over when time's up. 500 is high score. You get Silver Coin if you pass high score, otherwise, get Bronze Coin if points <500 but >100.

Once you've played through all three worlds, Fancy Mel shows up. Fancy Mel will help you if you help her find a missing Poppul Purrel. Head out and go back to Carona.

Head into town and talk with the townsfolk to get some clues. Marco tells you the most obvious clue - head into Carona Forest!

Boss Fight: Blood & Smokey
As you get to the Stone Face area, you see Blood & Smokey accousting a Poppul Purrel. Don't these guys ever learn? They're a bit tougher than before for so watch out for their attacks. They'll take turns attacking you. Smokey will run around you and Blood will go straight for you. Don't bother using your Magic as they're pretty quick. Just follow the same strategy as last time.

Once they're down, the Poppul Purrel will head back to Mel's place. Follow the guy and head back there as well. Back at Mel's, she'll give you her Report and the Cube back. Rue wants to talk with Fancy Mel so you head back to town with Elena... But before you get there, Duke shows up in a Star outfit. In this messed up place though, it doesn't stand out...

Boss: Starlight Duke
His attacks are a cartwheel, spinning flying saucer, and a jump and squash attack. Just avoid these by jumping and running around. Once he stops, he'll fall down in dizziness. While he's down, beat him with combos or use your magic! On some cases, he walks and trips. Take advantage and strike! ...In the meantime, Elena watches at the side. ^^;

After your fight, now you can go back to town. Talk to Klaus and it looks like you have to find some stuff for Prima. Enter the next chapter - Chapter 4: Upstream Adventure
