Impossamole - Hints
POINT ONE: The most advisable route would be to go straight down
under the ONE
POINT TWO: Whilst falling down, pull right on the joystick to avoid the
majority of trouble.
POINT THREE: Push left when falling to collect the treasure.
POINT FOUR: End of level. To kill the monster stand on one of the
middle platforms as you can still hit it, regardless of where it
POINT ONE: Jump up[ into the tree branches, then up again. Collect the
food and the laser weapon, but watch out for the thunder cloud.
POINT TWO: Fall down towards the knight.
POINT THREE: End of level. To kill the dragon, climb up the ladder and
stand on the platform. Fire at it. You will find the dragon a lot
easier to kill if you've collected all the bonuses, particually if
you've got the heat-seeking laser. When you've killed it pick up the
bonuses quickly as they will soon fall offscreen.
POINT ONE: The bottom route is the easier of the two, but the top route
contains a good weapon and various other goodies.
POINT TWO: A reverse of point one. The top route is the easier of the
POINT THREE: You've got three options here, the bottom route is
probabelly the easiest.
POINT FOUR: Pick up the bombs on the right if you have no weapons.
POINT FIVE: End of level. To kill the trees stand in the middle of
the ditch and shoot the faces.
POINT ONE: Take the top route.
POINT TWO: Go up and collect the food (You need it!)
POINT THREE: End of level. To kill the ice-cream, stand on one of
the ledges and shoot it.
One of the easiest levels, there are no alternative routes.
POINT ONE: End of level! The wirlwinds are the only difficult end of
level nasties in the game. There's no sure fire way of killing them,
so shoot like mad and hope for the best.
