Remember that using thrown weapons doesn't earn you experience, but melee weapons like the bat and the whip do. -Chintai and Abobo are a pair of tough customers. With Chintai, don't get too close to them as they can easily put you down faster than you can say 'ouch!' The best thing to do is jump-kick them a few times and then wear them down with kicks. Don't try to sit on them when they're down and punch their face unless they're weak, otherwise, they'll throw you off. For Abobo, don't try to punch him or you risk getting badly hurt. It's best to use jump kicks on him, but if you haven't earned the jump kick yet, then just regular kicks. Note that using the conveyor belt to take out the first Abobo is an easy way of defeating him, but you won't earn any experience for it. -In areas where it's easy to fall to your death (namely areas 2 and 3,) stay as far from the edges as you can when fighting. There is a tool-assisted speedrun of the game, you can pick up some tips by watching that. Edited March 6, 2007 by vdub_bobby Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
