Now I've got all the token stuff out of the way, let's roll!
Welcome to Christopher Hyde's Ape Escape Walkthrough. For this guide, I have been 
using the European version of the game (PAL). The US version of the game is very 
different. It has different level names, different monkey names and descriptions 
and Buzz is called Jake. I think people using this version should be able to use 
the guide without too much trouble.
If you have any comments, criticisms or anything at all, just 
e-mail me (kiffa@hiswitzend.fsnet.co.uk). When e-mailing, please follow these 
rules:

1.Put 'Ape Escape FAQ' as the subject.  I get so many e-mails a day that, if you 
do this, there is a greater chance I will respond. Courtesy also increases the 
chances of me responding.

2.Any e-mail saying this FAQ is bad, making any rude comments or trying to cause 
trouble will instantly be deleted. OK?

3.Read and re-read the FAQ before e-mailing me questions. Chances are the answer 
will be in the guide. 

4.Erm...thats it.

{  D.About me.                                              }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

My name is Christopher Hyde and this is my second FAQ that I have written (see 
section 6G for details on my others).  I decided to write the FAQ because Ape 
Escape is a brilliant game and provided me with many months of challenges (such 
as catching those last few elusive monkeys and getting gold on all the Time 
Attacks).

Anyway, that is the end of the first few sections and now comes the beginner's 
guide to Ape Escape.  This section basically covers the essential gameplaying 
and, if you are on Time Period 3 by now, you should know the stuff covered in 
this section, so you don't really need to use this section.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  E.Story.                                                 }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

A young monkey named Specter was bored. He was tired of his cramped cage with the 
familiar sights...young children, poking their fingers through the bars at 
him...couples in love, with the man putting his fingers near Specter's mouth in 
an attempt to show his lady friend how brave he is by putting his hand so close 
to the monkey's mouth...old men, complaining about the fact that "in the old 
days, children used to respect their elders - and you certainly didn't get 
monkeys looking like that"... he was sick of it. One day, he discovered an old 
man, who had been scribbling notes down from the information board outside 
Specter's cage and muttering things to himself, had forgotten something. He had 
dropped a shiny hat. Specter reached out for the hat - he loved shiny things. 
However, it was too far from the bars for him to reach. Desperate, he rummaged 
around in the straw at the back of his cage and discovered a twig. He used the 
twig to nudge the helmet towards him...there, he could reach it. Specter reached 
out for it and got it in his paws. He ducked down to put it on and the helmet 
reflected in his eye, the one not covered by a tuft of fur. He looked up again, 
triumphantly wearing the helmet. This time, his eye was narrow and cold. Evil 
malice gleamed from it.
"Finally, it is the time for the apes to rebel!" he screamed at the top of his 
voice. Several passers-by turned to look at him as he charged at the bars of his 
cage like a bull. The ultra-strong metal of the helmet made the bars burst 
outwards. 
Specter ran around the amusement park, freeing all his monkey friends from their 
cells. They all ran for the exit and escaped.
"Quick! To the nearest building!" cried Specter, in between puffs of breath. 
The nearest building just happened to be the laboratory of the man who had 
created such a monstrosity...The Professor.
The Professor had been working for many years in an attempt to discover the 
secrets of time travel. He is now close to achieving this goal as his Time 
Station is nearing completion. The Professor, who is a kind man at heart, has 
agreed to let two of his granddaughter Katie's friends be the first ever time 
travellers.
The Professor was expecting a knock at the door to signal the arrival of Spike 
and Buzz, the boys destined to be the first time travellers. He was rummaging 
around the laboratory trying to find his Peak Point Helmet, listening for the 
knock. He couldn't find it anywhere and, just as he was about to give up hope, 
heard the knock.
The Peak Point helmet was designed with one purpose - intelligence. It increased 
the human IQ, but on a monkey, the results were disastrous, as the Professor will 
shortly find out.
"Katie, carry on looking for me." he asked his 14 year old granddaughter as he 
headed towards the door. He opened it.
"Spike, Buzz, what a pleasure to see...eh, what's up?" he asked, half to himself. 
He had been expecting a couple of 10 year old boys. Instead, he was confronted 
with an ape army.
"Get him!" screamed Specter.
"That's my..that's my..my hat! He's got my hat!" the Professor cried out as 
several apes hurled themselves at him, binding his arms and legs.
"Grandfather!" shrieked Katie, as more apes detached themselves from the army and 
tied her up.
Specter began chuckling to himself, a deep, evil laugh.
He ran to the Time Station, still chortling and leapt into the Station. The 
monkeys began following him.
Suddenly, the door banged open. Spike and Buzz were in the doorway. 
"What the..Professor! Katie!" Buzz exclaimed, as he realised the situation. He 
ran over to free the Professor but - 
"No, Buzz!" the Professor warned as Buzz reached down to free him. "You'll get 
sucked into the vortex!"
He was right. Buzz was getting sucked in, too.
"Buzz! No!" Spike cried. He ran towards Buzz and reached out for him in a futile 
attempt to free him...
"Buzz! Spike!" Katie yelled as they were both sucked into the vortex. The last 
monkey shrugged and leapt in too. There was a blinding flash of light and the 
vortex closed.
Spike and Buzz are alone, trapped in time as Specter attempts to change history. 
Can you help them escape?

{  F.Characters.                                            }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

SPIKE - 
Sex - M.
Age - 10.
Height - 135cm.
Weight - 32kg.
Spike loves hanging round the Professor's lab to see what the old man might come 
up with next. When he learned that the Professor had completed the construction 
of the world's first time machine, Spike couldn't wait to see it!

THE PROFESSOR - 
Sex - M.
Age - 60.
Height - 170cm.
Weight - 80kg.
Since he was a child, the Professor has loved tinkering with gadgets. Now he's 
growing older he tends to be a little careless, leaving his experiments lying 
around for anyone to stumble across. He relies on his granddaughter, Katie, to 
make sure he doesn't get himself - or anyone else - into trouble. Though he's 
worried about Spike, he's secretly thrilled that the Time Station works!

KATIE - 
Sex - F.
Age - 14.
Height - 155cm.
Weight - ?kg.
Katie lives with her grandfather and tries to keep him out of trouble. She's very 
impatient and her grandfather's untidiness annoys her, though not as much as 
Spike, as he is always getting in her way, but she is still friends with him. 
She's brilliant with computers and both Spike and the Professor are relying on 
Katie to keep the Time Station working long enough for Spike to make it home 
safely.

BUZZ/JAKE - 
Sex - M.
Age - 10.
Height - 138cm.
Weight - 34kg.
Spike and Buzz have always enjoyed a little good-natured rivalry, so it's not 
surprising that they both want to be the first into the Time Station. But while 
Spike tries to save the world from the monkeys, Buzz is lost in the Time 
Vortex...where can he be? All will be revealed during the game.

SPECTER - 
Sex - M (presumably).
Age - 4 (human years).
Height - 125cm.
Weight - 28kg.
Specter used to live at the amusement park, where he'd keep people entertained by 
performing tricks and getting up to mischief. But this all changed when he found 
the Peak Point Helmet. He became hyper-intelligent - and evil! Now all he wants 
is to rule the world and Spike must stop him!

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  G.Controlling Spike.                                     }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

Left stick - 
Controls Spike's movements. Push gently to make him tiptoe; push it a little 
further to make him walk; push it all the way to make him run.

R3 button -                            (push the right stick in)
Whilst crawling, press this to make him curl up. This makes it even harder for 
monkeys to spot him.
T(Triangle), [], O and X - 
These act as gadget buttons. You can allocate each gadget a button and then press 
the button to use the gadget. See the Pause menu section for more details.
R1/R2 buttons - 
Makes Spike jump. If you press the button twice, he performs a 2-step double-

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  H.Gadget list.                                           }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

STUN CLUB - 
Gained - You have it at the start.
One of the first gadgets you'll get. Use the right stick to control the movement 
of the Stun Club - it will strike in the direction you press, or you can revolve 
the right stick to move the Stun Club in a circular motion to protect yourself.

THE TIME NET - 
Gained - You have it at the start.
An essential tool as you must use it to capture all the monkeys. Like the Stun 
Club, you can swing the Time Net in any direction. If you stun them first, they 
will be easier to catch. 

THE WATER NET - 
Gained - Before entering Raining Lake/Primordial Ooze.
The Water Net is slightly different to other gadgets as you cannot assign it a 
button - it automatically appears when you go underwater. You can swim around in 
the water, but remember to resurface regularly for oxygen. To speed up, press the 
R1 button. 
To dive while swimming, press L3. This will take you deeper and deeper until you 
release it. Press R3 while underwater to fire a monkey net. This helps catch 
monkeys underwater.

THE MONKEY RADAR - 
Gained - Before entering Jungle River/Thick Jungle.
This is used to locate monkeys and find out information about them. The radar can 
be turned with the right stick. The radar goes higher in pitch when it has found 
a monkey and it will get louder when you are near a monkey.
If the monkey is really close, you can press L2 to learn their statistics.

THE SLINGSHOT - 
Gained - Before entering Cryptic Relics.
The slingshot is used to destroy enemies from a safe distance. Pull the right 
stick back to make Spike pull the elastic back and move it about to guide the 
cross-hairs over the target and then release it to fire. Use the L2 button to 
enter Target Mode, where you can get a more accurate shot. You can also use the 
slingshot to hit out-of-reach buttons and switches.
The slingshot uses 3 types of bullet;
Normal - You have an infinite amount of these bullets.
Flash - These explode on impact, causing greater damage than normal bullets.
Guided - These have 3 rounds to one set. 
Press R3 or O to select different types of bullet. 

THE DASH HOOP - 
Gained - Before entering Primitive Beach/Crabby Beach.
You can make this into a shield by rotating the right stick. When it's a dash 
shield, you can bang into enemies and hurt them!

THE SKY FLYER - 
Gained - Before entering Icicle Cave/Frosty Retreat. 
The Sky Flyer enables you to jump higher than normal. Rotate the right stick to 
make it fly. Keep rotating to fly over long distances. You can also move around 
whilst flying. 

THE RC CAR - 
Gained - Before entering Urban City/City Park.
Press the R3 button or [] to call the RC car. The car is steered by using the 
right stick. You can use it to defeat enemies, stun monkeys, get through small 
gaps and trigger floor switches.
Note that you can use the RC car as a remote bomb! Send it to wherever you want 
and then use your slingshot to shoot it from a distance. This comes in very 
helpful for defeating some of the more difficult enemies! Thanks to Troy for this.

THE MAGIC PUNCH - 
Gained - After beating the game and getting the bad ending.
The Magic Punch is a fist that extends to hit enemies and smash down doors. 
Several monkeys in the later stages are trapped in glowing pods that can only be 
opened using this device.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  I.The Time Station.                                      }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

You return to this area after clearing a stage. The Time Station contains many 
useful things. You can load/save your game, view the Monkey Book, select a stage 
to enter, recap on the training and play some cool mini-games.
I will explain each feature individually, except the mini-game room, as it is so 
fun to play the games that I feel it should get it's own section!
WARP SCREEN - Step onto the red floor switch in front of you to enter the Warp 
Screen. From here, you can choose which levels you want to enter or play on Time 
Attack mode. Select the stage you wish to enter by pressing left or right on 
either the D-pad or the left stick. Press X or O to enter that level, T or [] to 
return to the Time Station or START to enter Time-Attack.
LOAD/SAVE - Step on the red floor switch behind you to save or load a game. You 
can also view the Monkey Book, which has it's own section in section 3.
TRAINING - You can revisit all the training scenarios here. The training 
scenarios are the sections at the beginning of each level when you get a new 
gadget.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  J.Keeping Spike healthy.                                 }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

Spike eats cookies to stay alive and collects extra lives in the form of T-shirts 
and energy chips.
Cookies are how many attacks Spike can take before he dies. 5 is the maximum 
amount you can have. Each time you get hit, 1 cookie is removed. When all 5 are 
gone, you die.
Lives come in the form of T-shirts. You begin with 5 and more can be gained by 
collecting the T-shirts scattered around the levels or by gaining 100 energy 
chips.
Energy chips are golden and triangular. Larger ones with holes in the centre are 
worth 10.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  K.The Pause menu.                                        }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

When you press START, you enter the Pause menu. From here, you can press buttons 
to enter various screens.
T - Gadget.
O - Status.
X - Options.
[] - Exit.

Gadgets - 
You can enter this screen by the process above, or you can press SELECT to enter 
this screen immediately. You can allocate a gadget to each button and use them 
from there

Status - 
This shows you the stage number, the stage name, the best time, the amount of 
Specter coins collected and the total and also the amount of monkeys captured and 
how many left.

Options - 
You can toggle things to your liking here. Not much use really.

Exit - 
This lets you exit the level.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  L.The monkeys.                                           }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

Specter's factory has been working overtime and hundreds of Peak Point helmets 
are being produced!
The monkeys gain intelligence from these helmets and the siren on top can help 
you. The light flashes depending on what mood the monkey is in and helps you to 
decide when to catch a monkey.
Blue light means that the monkey is calm.
Yellow light means that the monkey is alert and on it's guard.
Red light means it can see you and is panicky. Be careful when they are in this 
state - they may turn aggressive!

You can also learn the monkey's personality by its pants.
Yellow pants mean that this is a normal monkey.
Light blue pants mean that this monkey is gentle.
Red pants mean that this monkey is a strong attacker.
Blue pants mean that this monkey is a very fast runner.
White pants mean that the monkey has excellent balance.
Green pants mean that the monkey has strong vision.
Black pants mean trouble. These monkeys have an attitude problem. They usually 
wear shades and carry weapons.

Good luck in catching those monkeys.

Right, now it's time for why most of you clicked on the link to this page. It's 
time for the walkthrough!


SECTION NUMBER 2 - THE WALKTHROUGH - PART 1 - MONKEY LOCATIONS

Section i - Section 1 layout.
This section is fairly easy to understand. I have listed the monkey's names in 
alphabetical order. Alongside each one, it tells you where to find them. 
This also tells you the location of each Specter Coin. These are in no particular 
order.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  A.Time Period 1 - Prehistoric Era/The Lost Land.         }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

Section A1 - Ancient Plain/Fossil Field.

*MONKEYS - 04.
*COINS - 01.

Blair - On raised grey rock.
Cruise - On grass to left of starting place.
Exocet - On a high cliff.
Fruity - Monkeying around near the steps.

Specter Coin #1 - On top of one of the trees.

Section A2 - Raining Lake/Primordial Ooze.

*MONKEYS - 06.
*COINS - 01.

B.C. - You can see him from the start. He is sitting next to a tree stump. Even 
if you creep up, he runs away.
Champ - Take a swim in the lake. Go through the pass in between two cliffs. Get 
out on the other side and climb up the steps to reach him.
Imp - On a platform sticking out from a cliff, behind you from the starting point.
Mermaid - Swimming in lake.
Sleepy - Also taking a dip in the lake.
Tum-Tum - Follow B.C. at the beginning. You'll spot this ape on a platform on the

computer, which in turn stops the lift, letting you get the ape at the bottom.

SECTION NUMBER 3 - THE WALKTHROUGH - PART 2 - THE MONKEY BOOK
Section i - Section 2 layout.
This is the Monkey Book section. This is set out in pretty much the same way as 
the Monkey Book in the actual game, except there obviously isn't a photo. With 
each one, I have included a short description of why each monkey got it's name 
e.g.
Fruity.
Level 1.
Speed - 1.
Attack - 1.
Alert - 1.
Yellow.
Loves bananas.
Bananas are a type of fruit, so a monkey who adores bananas would be described as 
being fruity.

This shows the statistics, the colour of their pants, the level and the 
description of the monkey's character. The bit at the end tells you how I think 
the description and the names are related.
Some monkeys have names that appear to have no relation to their description, so 
I have left a few question marks in the description area. If anyone knows why 
these monkeys are named with these names, please e-mail me. See section 6F for 
information on who has contributed to this section.
Each level is arranged in alphabetical order.

Another reference to the rocket.

Tum-Tum

Chimpo.
Level 1.
Speed - 1.

Ghosts, in the movie, produce slime, which they hurl at the Ghostbusters. That's 
the name, but the relation between the name and the description is that the 
Ghostbusters theme tune had a line which went "I'm 'fraid of no ghosts".

SECTION NUMBER 5 - THE WALKTHROUGH - PART 4 - THE MINI-GAMES.
Section i - Section 4 introduction.
(This introduction was previously under section 1J)
The Arcade has three games to play. Each of the games also has a 2-player mode. 
You can't play these games until you get the amount of Specter coins listed.

GAME #1 - SKI KIDS RACING
Coins needed - 10.
This is pretty fun. You choose a character (Spike, Buzz, Katie, the Professor or 
a monkey - each is kinda like a sheet of paper coloured in like these characters 
as they are two-dimensional).
Each stick controls each ski, so if you press the right stick forward, that 
character will rotate on the spot anti-clockwise. The best characters to pick are 
either Buzz or the monkey as they are both good. Whatever you do, don't pick the 
Professor as he is, for want of a better word, rubbish. There are several 
different courses to play on as well.

GAME #2 - SPECTER BOXING
Coins needed - 20.
The worst of the mini-games. I don't really like this (probably because I am bad 
at it). You enter a boxing match with your opponent (with both being monkeys). 
The idea is to emerge victorious after a few rounds.

GAME #3 - GALAXY MONKEY
Coins needed - 40.
Yes, it needs a lot of coins, but this is the best mini-game by far. It is 
similar to the Space Invaders game, except it is in 3D. Use the left stick to 
control the craft and the right stick to fire. My favourite by miles.

Section A1 - Start-up.
When you begin a game, you are faced with 4 options : 

START
MATCH RACE
OPTION
QUIT

Start lets you begin a single player game.
Match Race lets you play a two-player game.
Option lets you toggle with the game's settings, such as changing the sound and 
the vibrations.
Quit takes you back to the Time Station.

Section A2 - Beginning a game.
Before playing a game, options are available:

Select character (see section A3)
Select course (see section A4)
Preliminary contest 
Deciding race (see section A5)
Operating methods (see section A6)
Quit

The seventh, Replay, only opens when you've played a match.
The ones with "see section Ax" refer you to that section where there is more 
detail. Some haven't got them as these ones are pretty self-explanatory.
Select character lets you pick a racer.
Select course lets you pick a course.
Preliminary contest lets you have a preliminary match to decide the places in the 
main race.
Deciding race lets you slug it out.
Operating methods teaches you the controls of the game.
Quit takes you back to the intro screen.

Section A4 - Selecting a course.
Course 1 = Easy slope
           732m     
           4 laps

Course 2 = Snowman's Garden
           667m 
           4 laps 
           
Course 3 = Snake river
           1574m
           3 laps  

Section A5 - Deciding race.
Here we go!
This is the main race, in which you ski against a friend or with the computer. 
For strategies on racing, see the next two sections.

Section A6 - Operating methods.
1.Operating instructions.
-Move the right ski with the right stick and the left ski with the left stick.
-Pushing the sticks forwards activates the jets. Tilting the sticks towards each 
other brings the skis together.
2.Going faster with the right posture.
-With the skis together, lower your body and your speed will increase.
3.Turn on one ski.
-To turn quickly, operate the jet on the outside ski only, while using the brake 
on the inside jet.
4.Turbo charged skiing.
-If you ski with the skis together, the jet flame will sometimes turn blue. If 
you keep on skiing this way, after a while the jet flame will turn orange and the 
power of the jets increases.

Section A7 - Course strategies.
If anyone has got any good strategies for any of these courses, please e-mail 
them to me!
The only real tips I have are:
Always keep on the inside of corners.
Sometimes it's best to slow down on corners.

Section A8 - Small cheats.
I have discovered one small cheat for this game (well, you probably can't even 
call it a cheat).
When selecting a character, move the right stick around. The racer currently 
highlighted will rotate around with the stick!

Section B1 - Start-up.
When you begin a game, you are faced with 3 options:

START
OPTION
QUIT

Start takes you to the game's main menu, where you choose modes of play and 
characters etc.
Option lets you toggle with the game's settings, such as changing the sound and 
the vibrations.
Quit takes you back to the Time Station.

Section B2 - Beginning a game.
You can play this mini-game in three different ways:
CHAMPIONSHIP
VS MODE
TRAINING
Championship mode pits you against increasingly harder foes, with the aim being 
you beating the top monkey, Ty.
Vs mode lets you slug it out with a friend.
Training has you facing a punchbag to practice moves on.
There are also options underneath. Advice is tips on beating enemies (see section 
B4) and Return lets you return to the start-up screen.
B3 - Selecting a character.
The 5 characters you can choose at the start are:
Bruno   Fump   Henri   Marvie   Hitman
There is a way to gain more (see section B6)

Section B4 - Advice.
1.Press up to punch.
  Pull down first and up to punch harder.
2.Pull down to guard.
3.Move left or right to sway
4.To punch consecutively, the right timing is important.

Section B5 - Strategies.
If anyone has any good strategies for winning championship mode, or anything 
else, please e-mail them to me.
One good strategy I have found is to rotate both sticks around, at the same time, 
clockwise. This makes the ape you are controlling use harder punches and he is 
also a moving target, making it difficult for the foe to hit you.

Section B6 - Small cheats.
I have one minor cheat for this game:
When you beat Championship mode, the apes you have beaten will become selectable 
characters. These extra apes are:
Frank   King   Ali   Sugaz   Ty   Biff   Glove   Don   Rage
Nazz    Bully  Duff  Punch

{  C.Galaxy Monkey.                                         }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

Section C1 - Start-up.
When you begin a game, you are faced with 5 options:

NORMAL PLAY.
3 MINUTE TIME ATTACK.
HOW TO.
OPTION.
QUIT.

Normal Play lets you choose whether to play a 1 player or 2 player game.
3 Minute Time Attack lets you try and get the highest score possible in 3 minutes.
How To tells you the basic controls of the game.
Option lets you toggle with the game's settings, such as changing the sound and 
the vibrations.
Quit takes you back to the Time Station.

Section C2 - Beginning a game.
To play a 1 player or not to play a 1 player game, that is the question.
You can play a 1 player game by pressing Start whilst Normal Play is highlighted, 
then Start again to have a 1 player game.
Press Start while Normal Play is highlighted, then Start on player 2's control 
pad to play a 2 player game.
Highlight 3 Minute Time Attack then press Start to enter a game of bashing aliens 
within 3 minutes.

Section C3 - Controls.
Left stick makes you move.
Right stick makes you fire.
The circles that have a P in them are power-ups. When you only have a 1-way 
firepower, then picking up a power-up increases it to a 2-way fire. The same 
happens when you have a 2-way, bringing it up to a 3-way. After that, each one 
got earns you 500 points.

Section C4 - Scoring.

NAME       | SCORE
Bloata     | 200 points.
Tentacus   | 400 points
Tocus      | 800 points.
Spheroids  | 5024 points.
UFOs       | 100 points.

Section C5 - Strategies.
Zip round the screen as fast as you can, avoiding enemies.
When a red line appears at the side of a screen (indicating an enemy will 
approach from that direction), get to the other side of the screen to get away 
from it.
Always, ALWAYS get the power-ups.
Try and defeat the Spheroids when they appear, as you get LOTS of points.

Section C6 - Small cheats.
I have found a pretty effective 'cheat' for this game:
When trying to get a high-score, begin a 2-player game. With 2 players, you can 
get the majority of the enemies and player 2 can watch your back.
Using this, I got double what my high-score was previously! 


SECTION NUMBER 6 - THE LAST FEW THINGS.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  A.World Monkey Championships.                            }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

Here is a list of monkeys with the highest points in several categories.

Highest Level Award - This is a tie between Rik and Si of Specter's Factory, as 
they both have a Level 7.

Fastest Runner Award - Several monkeys have achieved a rating of 5 in this 
category, such as Tyson of Specter Land and Donkey of Tranquil Temple/Sushi 
Temple.

Most Powerful Award - Monkeys who have a 5 in this category include Tyson of 
Specter Land and Billie of The Great Wall/Wabi Sabi Wall.

Most Alert Award - Tyson, Junior and Slime are examples of alert monkeys.

Most Awards Award - Tyson of Specter Land wins this award.

Specter's Favourite Ape Award - This goes to Creep of Jungle River/Thick Jungle 
who carried on worshipping Specter, even when Specter ignored him.

 /---------------------------------------------------------\
{  B.Cheats                                                 }
 \---------------------------------------------------------/

There is only one cheat for Ape Escape that genuinely works:

To get 99 explosive bullets, type in R2, D, L2, U, R, D, R, L.

I have discovered a few hidden things, but they're not really cheats.
i.Leave Spike standing still for a while. He will do one of a variety of things, 
such as playing with one of the gadgets or even lying down and going to sleep!
ii.Once you gain the Monkey Radar, you can view each monkey's statistics. Move 
the right stick to change the camera angle. 
iii.On the Jungle River/Thick Jungle level, there are some plants that swallow 
you. Once swallowed, rotate the right stick quickly. The plant will disintegrate.
iv.The RC car can be used as a bomb. Simply place it near an ape and hit it with 
the stun club. It'll explode, leaving a dazed monkey, which can be easily 
captured!
v.A good way to save lives, which I find a bit stupid, is, once you've fallen off 
a cliff, pause the game and select Quit to exit the level. Yes, this'll save you 
a life, but you then have to trek all the way back to where you fell off, which, 
if it is near the end of a big level eg Specter Land, can be a pain!

If anyone has any more that work, e-mail them to me!

Began writing walkthrough. I got up to the beginning of the main part of the 
guide.

05/9/00 to 20/9/00
Copied the statistics and location of all 204 monkeys on to paper to type onto 
the guide.

20/9/00 - 24/9/00
Typed up part 1 of the walkthrough. I have left parts 2 and 3 to do at a later 
date, so that part 1 can be used.
I finished section 5 and e-mailed the file to GameFAQs, asking if it could be put 
on the site.

Received an e-mail from a representative of CheatStop, asking to use the guide, 
which means that this walkthrough can now be found at www.cheatstop.com

Had some ideas for more walkthrough sections, such as a guide on defeating all 
the monsters (including bosses), a guide on the game's plot and a more detailed 
guide to each of the mini-games.
Out of those three, I think that the first and last will be the best, so watch 
this space for results.

30/10/00 - 4/11/00
Did a detailed guide to each mini-game under section 5.

16/11/00
Received an e-mail from Freshly Baked Games asking for permission to use this

04/04/02
Received an email from Rik Skews (the producer of the game!) saying how good the 
guide is. He has also helped me with a few more of the more obscure names. He 
also revealed that the reason why the monkey descriptions are so short is due to 
the fact that "developers only had 20 characters to play with including spaces, 
etc (boring reasons, but mainly to do with translation) so it was a challenge to 
come up with that many descriptions that were intriguing with so few words."
