Apocalypse Walkthrough Platform: Playstation Genre: Action Version: 0.6 Me: King Broccoli E-Mail: KingBroccoli@hotmail.com --------------------------------- ======== CONTENTS ======== 1.0 QUICK TIPS 2.0 WALKTHROUGH 3.0 CHEATS 4.0 UPDATES 5.0 CREDITS 6.0 LEGAL THINGY ============== 1.0 QUICK TIPS ============== - It really does make it easier if you use a dual shock controller, the analogue sticks work wonders. - When there's a lot of jumping to be done take your time, the jumps can be tricky to judge and you can find yourself falling to yoour doom quite often. - When jumping try to use your shadow as a guide to where you will land. - Save some of the more powerful weapons for the end of level bosses - Pickup as many health bonuses as you can. (That's a pretty obvious one) =============== 2.0 WALKTHROUGH =============== *************** LEVEL 1: PRISON *************** The first four rooms are pretty much all the same, rooms 1,3 and 4 all have guard resistance. Kill the guards and activate the door switch. Go into the next room and around the left bend (look out for guards that'll jump out at you from behind the explosives) then activate the door switch. Shoot all the barrels and the guards then pick up the health and the particle beam, activate the switch, kill some more guards and you'll have reached the first checkpoint. Follow the walkway while taking out any guards that you may bump into, watch out for three missing sections in the floor. When you reach the fourth missing section take out all the guards in the glass room before continuing, pick up the health and the particle beam, then move to the next smart bomb whilst looking out for guards on platforms behind the walkway. When you reach the spotlight room watch the patterns of the lights and when it's safe move to the right pillar, wait, then run across the middle to the left pillar and finally onto the next room, where you have to do the same thing, then out onto the next walkway. Kill the guards in the glass room and drop down to the checkpoint and health bonus. Run to the end of the walkway (use your shadow as a guide for the jumps) and pull the lever that's in the next room. The lever will release prisoners and unlock doors, pick up the flamethrower and use it to toast the prisoners. In the next room Bruce will shout out "hit the deck" the next three rooms all have infra-red beams, roll through all of them. Activate the next switch and run through the door. Kill all the guards that you see and collect some homing missiles from the end platform. Continue until you find two raised platforms, each one has a guard and some health on it. Then keep going until you run into another health bonus and jump down to reach another checkpoint. Now run along the walkway and soon you'll reach the second last platform, eliminate the two guards then jump on and follow the platforms, you'll find another smart bomb and an extra life. Jump back onto the walkway, when you reach the end of it jump onto the next walkway, follow it until you reach the Rip Laser. Follow the walkway, jump gaps, then kill the two guards in front of the door. Go through the door and collect the Rip Laser. Kill all the prisoners and shoot the crates for an extra life. The first, second and third main rooms all have prisoners to kill, do so then activate the switch. Go through and collect the homing missiles. Follow the succession of platforms and use your homing missiles to kill all the guards. (You may need to jump and fire.) Drop down one platform away from the checkpoint and use more homing missiles to take out the guards until your path is clear. Continue down until you reach the next door. ++++++++ BOSS ONE ++++++++ As soon as you enter try to stand back as far as you can and fire at the pillar on the right until it crumbles. Pick up the pulse powerup then focus all your attention on the left pillar, once this is knocked down you can concentrate on the boss itself. (That big tank in the background.) This boss shouldn't cause too many problems, just avoid it's flamethrower and missiles whilst running and attacking. Picking up all of the pulse powerups would be a good idea as well. ******************* LEVEL 2: THE SEWERS ******************* Right at the beginning of this level you'll be surrounded by derelict bombers that will need to be taken out. The best way to do this is to simply stay on the run, avoiding their bombs and taking them out at the same time. Once they're all blown up run to the first drop, you should drop to the right. Pick up the flamethrower and continue on. Kill all the derelicts and take the next two drops, (watch out for the bats though) when you land you should be able to find a hole to your left, next to the waterfall, with grenades in it. On the same left wall you should see a tall, rock pillar. Shoot it and enter the newly revealed cave to find the smart bomb. Jump over the next gap and to your left you will find a blue wall. Jump the wall to find a health bonus. On the wall with torches and a door there is a series of platforms rising to the right. Follow the platforms (jump carefully and watch out for bats) and you will come across an extra life, smart bomb, homing missiles and rockets. Follow through the door and jump down to find a checkpoint. Be sure to get the health bonus before taking on more derelicts, then shoot the barrels and wood leaning on the gate to make it drop. The same rule applies when you reach the next gate, killing dero's along the way and getting the flamethrower. Kill more dero's and pick up the health bonus. Continue on until you reach the mines, these can be blown up with grenades, but if you dont have any then your gun will do nicely. Drop down the hole to the next checkpoint. Next up you'll have to kill more of those pesky dero's, but watch out for the caps on the sewer outlets, if you shoot them fire will come out. Exit and pick up another health bonus, carefully jump the flames in the passageway, then drop down and run towards the screen to find a smart bomb. Follow the next tunnel while avoiding the flames and eventually you'll make it to the next checkpoint. There are now two paths in front of you, the left one leads to a smart bomb and an extra life whilst the right one will take you to a Rip Laser. Whichever way you choose, be sure to stop at the second platform down and eliminate the dero's that are on the ledge. When you reach the place that the two paths meet wait until the rocks have passed before continuing on. Take out more dero's on the ledge, and follow the platforms until you reach a checkpoint. Watch for falling rocks on the few next platforms, when you reach the second, jump towards the screen and follow these platforms to an extra life. When you hit the pipeline, follow it back towards the screen to the health bonus. Now follow the platforms down to yet another checkpoint. Shoot all the pillars and crystals until the rockets are revealed. Now watch the bats. Follow to a pit where you will have to fight bats and giant rats. Once this is done shoot the rock at the north end of the pit, get the health and kill the rats. At the pentagram you have a choice of going left or right again, both ways are pretty much the same. Once you arrive at the lava shoot the blue crystal and the platforms will lower. The next platforms you reach will fall as you use them so be careful until you reach the next checkpoint. Watch out for rocks and mines in the next sewer until you come to another CHECKPOINT (gasp). Head north avoiding the flames until you arrive at the next pit. ++++++++ BOSS TWO ++++++++ This boss is a crocodile. He attacks by lunging out of the water at you. Before he strikes watch out for the air bubbles. Once he pops up in the air fire away at him. Don't bother shooting at it when it's underwater, it's just a waste of ammo. The more damage you do to it, the more dero's and mines will show up in the arena. Also look out for health bonuses and pulse powerups during the course of the fight. ********************* LEVEL THREE: THE CITY ********************* ---During this level avoid helicopter spotlights--- In the first room there is a flamethrower and a health bonus. If you've got any grenades left try dropping them off the edge to get the guards. Blow up the smoking stacks and get the particle beam. Jump the fire, shoot the smoke stack and get the Pulse Laser. Get the health bonus and kill the guards behind the barriers, you can find a health bonus at the blown out store front then kill more guards and grab yet another health bonus. Jump down to the Rip Laser and checkpoint and watch out for bombs being dropped from above (to avoid them move all the way left or right) Get ANOTHER health bonus from the store front then kill the guards and mini tanks. Shoot the flashing wall in front of you, kill more guards and tanks in the store front and grab the health. Shoot the next wall, get the grenades and drop one off the edge to the guards waiting down below then jump down to the next checkpoint. At the movie screen you can go left or right. To the left there are mini tanks and guards, followed by Particle Beam power ups, whilst if you go to the right you will be ambushed by guards and get flamethrowers. Shoot the wall at the end, pick up the health, and continue to the checkpoint. A big tank with a flamethrower will then attack you, just keep on the move while firing at it and it shouldn't give you too much trouble. Jump down the next ledge and you will find some rockets, here two tanks will block your path, stand back to avoid their flames and to avoid the missiles hide behind the pillars and attack the tanks as you weave. The next ledge down has another two tanks, just stand back and let loose at them. Drop a grenade off the next ledge to kill the guards then proceed to the left to find a health bonus and a checkpoint. Kill the guards you see and get the health behind the pillar on the right. Jump the gaps in the road and kill all the guards that you come across (don't forget to pick up the health after the second gap. Continue, killing guards and grabbing any bonuses that you can find behind the pillars, then pick up the health bonus and proceed to another checkpoint. Pick up the particle beam, and jump onto the hover craft. Follow the craft along, taking out guards until you reach the next checkpoint (also beware of the ship behind you). Get the homing missiles, climb up the ledge and grab the particle beam. Enter the second door on the top ledge for a flamethrower. Pickup the health, check all the doorways for powerups then jump down and fight the tank just as you did before. Pickup more health and continue on to the checkpoint. Look out for exploding ground as you proceed, killing all the guards that you can see. As you turn the corner you'll have to be careful as the ground wil keep exploding. Once you reach the end follow the platforms, make your way to the left and jump to the ground at the left for an extra life. Then move to the next 100% health and checkpoint. ++++++++++ BOSS THREE ++++++++++ This boss room will have two tanks that keep flaming and launching, two flight craft launching and a continuous wave of guards. Always stay on the move. The pillars hold a Rip Laser, rockets, and some health. Keep the number of guards down as you focus on one of the tanks, move to the next tank while keeping guards down and then take out the flight craft using the Rip Laser. Once all this is done you can proceed to the colourful door and Level Four. ***************** LEVEL FOUR: DEATH ***************** Stay at the back of the screen firing at Death. Watch the spots on the ground that his lightning makes, little green men will come out of them and chase after you. After these have been taken care of return your fire to Death straight away. Pick up all the powerups that you find along the way. Soon the roof should start to explode, when this happens move forward because the ground is going to start collapsing. Death will back off into a new room complete with fresh powerups. Death will then start shooting purple stuff at you from his sword, avoid it by running left to right and keep shooting at him with all the powerups you find. Just keep on doing this and Death will soon lose all his energy and you can go on to the next level ******************** LEVEL FIVE: ROOFTOPS ******************** Start off by killing the guards, then shoot the "furniture" on the roof to find a particle beam. Skip rooves, kill the guards and mini tanks, then collect the health and smart bomb. Next cross the bridge, be careful as it crumbles at your feet. Jump down, kill the turret and the guards, shoot the furniture to reveal a health bonus then flip the lever. On the next roof kill the guards and get the flamethrower, then use your normal gun to wipe out the flying guards. Jump down to the checkpoint, kill the guards and get all of the bonuses. Get the health from the flying fox wires and kill the guards. Keep going to the next roof where you'll have to destroy mines and guards. Collect the rip laser and use it to destroy the flying craft. Jump up, get the health and cross the bridge. Jump to the ledge on your right as you come off the bridge and get the homing missiles and the life. Finish off the guards and jump to the next roof to find a checkpoint. You'll have to fight a flying craft that drops guards and mines whilst shooting missiles. Pick up the pulse laser then destroy the guards, mines and finally the ship to obtain another checkpoint. Pick up the health then jump and follow the bridge until you reach the next rooftop where you will have to fight guards, avoid spotlights and grab the pulse laser. Kill all the guards on the next roof and follow until you reach the 4 way junction at the blue bridge. To the left, are homing missiles, to the right is a 100% health bonus (you should get both), meanwhile kill the guards and minitanks and take the next bridge over to the left. Kill all the flying guards then jump over the gap and kill the next group of guards that you run into and destroy the crates to find a smart bomb. Flip the lever and jump onto the lift. Kill the guards and take the health. Follow the bridge along, take out the flying guards. Kill the guards on the next roof and collect the homing missiles. Follow the next bridge taking out more of those pesky flying guards and the guards on the platforms behind the bridge. As you come off, kill the flying guards, destroy the flight craft and collect the health and extra life bonuses. Follow yet another bridge and kill the guards, destroy the crates and wipe out all the flying guards. Once you make it to the checkpoint you'll have to kill the rest of the flying guards from the bridge plus a swarm of guards on the roof. Once this is done take the homing missiles and health bonus from the crate. Jump onto the highwire and run straight to the other side without stopping (it should stop you from falling to a certain doom). Now drop down, kill the guards and collect more health bonuses. Next climb up the middle, destroy crates, take the particle beam and kill the guards on the bridge. You can now go left or right, it makes no difference which way you choose. Kill the guards and jump onto the highwire. Destroy the flying craft and the guard on the next roof. Jump onto the next highwire and down onto the next roof. Kill the guards and collect more health. Take ANOTHER highwire to ANOTHER roof and climb up the structure to the upper roof. There is an extra life ripe for the picking. Kill all the lower guards before jumping down and following the highwire that you see to the next roof. Just destroy EVERYTHING on this roof. Make sure to grab the flamethrower and the health bonuses. Now kill the flying guards before crossing the highwire to the next checkpoint. Destror the crates, grab the smart bomb and cross the bridge. Follow this, watch the flying guards and guards on platforms. One of the guards will leave behind a health bonus. The bridge will collapse at one stage, of you keep running you should be fine. You'll soon reach a set of yellow platforms that drop when you land on them, so cross them as quickly and carefully as you can and soon you'll come across a checkpoint. The next section is hard because the bridge will blow up as you run along it and jump to the next. Continue, killing guards and flying guards. Jump some more of those tricky yellow platforms and only take the next health bonus if you really need it, as it can be quite tricky to get. Watch out for guards and flying guards until you make it to the next checkpoint. Kill all the enemies you come across and collect the health bonus. Use the highwire, kill the guards then move to the next highwire. Take out the guards and turrets then collect the smart bomb and some more health before throwing the lever. Take the lift to the boss. +++++++++ BOSS FIVE +++++++++ You'll be running bakwards along a bridge, wait until you know you're hitting the craft, keep running and you shouldn't be hit. The boss will start to destroy the bridge, but with a little bit more punishment he should die. ******************** LEVEL SIX: GRAVEYARD ******************** Start off by obliterating all of the zombies, proceed to the opening where you'll have to kill more zombies plus some bats and grenadiers. Shoot the tall pillar in the middle of the opening, when it falls jump up and collect the flamethrower. Continue to the next two platforms, kill all the zombies and grenadiers that you see. Proceed onto the next platform, kill zombies and grenadiers, then shoot the green doorways on both buildings to recieve a health bonus and a smart bomb. Jump and collect the health bonus from the left roof. Jump onto the wooden platform and shoot the blocked doorway for Homing Missiles. Continue on, kill grenadiers and shoot the middle of the waterfall to reveal an extra life. Keep going, kill the zombie then follow the walkway and kill the hell hounds and grenadiers until you reach the first checkpoint. Shoot the blocked doorway for another health bonus, but be careful as it's a tricky spot to get out of. Grab another health bonus from under the walkway, kill the hell hounds then drop down to the next platform and a rip laser. Back on the walkway you'll have to work your way past the revolving platforms. Once you reach the top kill the hell hounds and look out for the bombs from above. Shoot the pillar on the other side and cross. Kill the hellhound you come across and get the health bonus. Jump into the water and dispose of the alligators whilst avoiding the whirl pools. Proceed up the platforms, kill the grenadier and follow more of those revolving platforms to a wooden walkway. Under this walkway to the right you should be able to find a health bonus. Then keep following the walkway, jump up for another health bonus and keep going. Jump to the top and onto the crane. Jump over to the other side and kill the hounds that are in the pit. Jump onto the platform and kill the clown, follow over to the smart bomb. From here jump to the left to collect an extra life and proceed to the next walkway. Kill the bats and proceed to the checkpoint. Shoot coffins, zombies and bats, then kill the hell hound and jump to the platform. Follow the platform and kill a stack of bats and grenaduers. Keep going and you will be assaulted by a LOT of grenadiers. Kill them with a smart bomb and proceed to the doorway. ++++++++ BOSS SIX ++++++++ Throw the green switch. It will bring down zombies and grenadiers which you must dispose of. You should see the door open a little bit, but close after a certain amount of time. Just keep throwing the switch and shooting the baddies until the door is open enough for you to roll through. ******************* LEVEL SEVEN: PLAGUE ******************* Plague will jump down onto the speakers. Attack her while dodging the green stuff she throws at you. It's easiest to avoid it by jumping. The next attack will be a series of green rings coming out from random platforms, dodge them by jumping and hopping from platform to platform whilst picking up any powerups that you can. Attack whenever possible. A disco ball will soon drop down onto the middle platform and shoot a fire ray. Hide behind the fencing where it can't hit you. The ray will some become three, just avoid it the same way. But don't stop attacking. The two side platforms will shake, when you see this move to the middle platform. The sides will drop off and the middle platform will rise. As soon as you can jump to her stage do so as the middle will be dropping quite soon. Plague will be on her hands and knees now, run away shooting at her at the same time and avoiding the green sludge that she leaves behind. Soon you will be VICTORIOUS. Onto level eight. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ MORE COMING SOON (VERY SOON, AT LEAST WITHIN A WEEK) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ========== 3.0 CHEATS ========== All Weapons: During gameplay hit pause and then hold L1 and enter: square circle up down x square Level Select: During gameplay hit pause and then hold L1 and enter: triangle up x down There will then be the level select option at the main menu Debug Mode: During gameplay hitpause, hold L1 and press: down, down, triangle Invincibility: During gamepaly hit pause, hold L1 and press: down, up, left, left, triangle, up, right, down Infinite Lives: During gameplay hit pause, hold L1 and press: triangle, circle, X, square Regain Health: During gameplay hit pause, hold L1 and press: square, X, triangle, circle Thanks to StingRay84 All Weapons & Infinite Ammo: Pause the game, hold L1 and press X, Triangle, Circle.
