Stage 1 part 1
After passing the last black leopard, destroy the last block of the
ledge for a 400 points bag
Stage 3 part 3
When you enter the mummy room don't hit the bottom block (chicken). Instead
of this, jump on the second block at the upper left of the chicken block
then try to move on your left (hold left button) like you to push the otter
block face to you and a inaccessible bag will appear at left under the bridge.
Stage 5 part 2
Before encounter the last axe man, jump on the very high blocks on the left
and jump on the two blocks below at the right. A 1000 points bag will appear
under the two blocks.
Stage 6 part 2
After you have collect the chicken in the upper floor, go downstairs and
immediately jump on the horizontal gear on the right, crouch the player a
little right of the center of the gear. A 1000 points bag will appear at the right.
After you have beaten the game and restart:
Stage 1 Out of the castle
Crouch at the second statue: 1000 points bag + the one obtain with jumping
over the door = 2000 points out of the castle.
Stage 2 part 2
Where you have to jump on the first moving ledge. While you get on this
ledge, a 4000 points rotating treasure appear on the ground below.
Stage 5 part 1
After destroying the 4th white skeleton since the start, continue moving
right until you stop by the wall. Hold right for few seconds and a 1up will
appear at the bottom of the stairs. (probably the only 1up of the game)
There are also many double-tipple shots hidden in new blocks.
On the very first part when you are walking down the road to the
castle entrance, when you reach the door, jump over it and land on the
other side. This will reveal a hidden money bag.

Battling the bat. Use the axe to kill him which can be found above the
steps to the left, or jump onto the block and use your whip. To kill the
Medusa use your whip or dagger but it is even easier using the fire
bomb. If you have a clock use it to freeze her hair. To kill mummy
Madness use the dagger, fire bomb, or boomerang. To kill Frankenstein, use
fire bombs, but kill Igor first with the knife. To kill Dracula use the
whip when his cape is open, and to kill his spirit use fire bombs.

Stage 1: In the section with the water, break the far right block and kneel
on the one below it and a money bag will appear.
Stage 2: On the first screen, climb the stairs, break the wall on the right
and enter the space you made and a crown will appear.
Stage 2: (Second part, just after the Medusa heads stop coming), stand on
the pair of blocks that are slightly above the rest for a few seconds
WITHOUT kneeling and a treasure chest appears.
Stage 3: (First part). After climbing the stairs, go to the right edge of
the lowest level of blocks and kneel for a money bag.
Stage 3: (Second part) After climbing the stairs, kneel above the pair a
blocks you can't reach for a money bag.
Stage 6 Strategy: To get past the bats, just walk past the first two,
freeze the third with the clock in the nearby candle, jump over the fourth
and run quickly past the last one. (Note: this only works if you don't stop
to whip ANY candles other than the one with the clock in it. Just run as
fast as you can!)

Stage 1 Boss: Throw axes at him and use the Double-Shot in the block at
the bottom of the stairs for extra firepower.
Bosses 2 and 3: Use Fire Bombs from a distance. For the Mummies,
don't collect the meat in the bricks below you unless you need it, as you
will be unable to climb back up.
Stage 4 Boss: Get used to avoiding the fireballs to survive! Hit the
jumping hunchback to freeze him for a few seconds and hit the monster
as fast as possible. Repeat.
Stage 5 Boss: Get Triple-Shot Boomerangs! Here's how: Get the Boomerang
and bring it into the red-draped room full of Axe Men and Medusa Heads.
Use the Boomerang on the axe-men (stop throwing to whip incoming axes
and heads) and double and triples will appear either in the heads, axes
or candles. Having done that, when the screen stops scrolling, start
jumping and throwing Boomerangs to the right where the Reaper will
first appear. This will give you a good start. Whip the incoming
projectiles that come your way and keep shooting.
Final Boss: Against the Count, stand 3 or 4 blocks away from where
he appears and jump straight up and whip his head. Make sure you finish
him off near one side of the screen. This will give you some extra room
to fight the monster he turns into. You can freeze him with Fire Bombs to
buy yourself some time and just keep whipping him. You should have him
beat before he reaches the other side of the screen.
