When you get to Crossbone Island, head to the southern part of it. You'll see
an indentation in the mountains when you get to the southern part of the
island, so head north to it to find the entrance to Crossbone Island. When the
world map disappears, go to the west to find a vine that you have to use growth
on. Repeat this process two times until you're at the top of the cliff. There
will be three crevices to fall down here. The crevice on the left will take
you to the north of those tree stumps and next to a shrub that you should
whirlwind to expose the entrance to Crossbone Island Cave. The middle crevice
leads to a chest with 1 coin, and the right crevice leads to a chest with a
mint in it. When you go down the crevice on the left and whirlwind the door,
enter it to enter the cave. Head north along the hallway until you get to a
large staircase to go down. Do so and arrive at the first floor of Crossbone
On each floor in Crossbone Island there are several treasure chests. In this
guide I will mention how to beat the boss in the first paragraph, how to get
the treasure chests in the second paragraph, and in the third paragraph I will
mention how to actually solve the room and get to the next one.
One thing to note about Crossbone Island is that there aren't random battle
encounters, which is quite nice. Instead, there are "Door Enemies" that you'll
have to fight before you can enter in a door.
Also, whenever you come out of a door in Crossbone Island make sure that you
push the stump down so that you'll have easy access past rooms you've already
gone through if you need to head out of the cave and then back in for any
The first of these Door Enemies is a Hobgoblin and a Virago. These guys aren't
all too tough, because you'll be free to cast all of your summons right off the
bat (remember, there aren't any random battle encounters in Crossbone Island.)
3 Level-4 Summons should wipe these guys out of the cave, giving you a Lucky
Medal and access to the first floor.
Location: Southwest corner of the room.
Item: 111 Coins.
Directions: Hop onto the ledge right below the stump and push it to the left.
Head counterclockwise across the gaps to get to the treasure chest.
Notes Before Obtaining the Next One: Head out of the room.
Location: Southeast corner of the room.
Directions: Hop onto the ledge below the stump and move it to the left. Jump
onto the platform with the stump and head right. The chest is directly east of
Notes.....: Head out of the room.
Location: Northwest corner of the room.
Item: Hard Nut
Directions: Hop onto the ledge below the stump and move it to the right. From
the ledge head to the left and move the stump to the north and move the log
there to the right. Head north along the stepping stone path on the left.
Notes: Head off of the platform but you need not go out of the room.
Location: North-center part of the room, not on a stepping stone.
Direction: Head counterclockwise all of the way around the outer ledge.
To get out of the room you'll need to make sure that you haven't moved any
stumps yet (head out of the room if you have.) Hop onto the small stepping
stone below the only log visible. Move the log to the right and head northwest
to the next stump on a ledge. Move this log to the left and start making your
way east until you can't go east any further. Once you're there, head north
until you reach the northeast corner. Start heading west until you come to a
ledge with a stump to the left. Move this stump east one square, then start
heading back from whence you came (13?) Make your way to the stump in the
middle that you haven't moved yet. Move this to the right and jump onto it.
Now you'll want to make your way to the log you moved earlier northwest of the
log you just moved. Move this log to the east, hop on to the platform and make
your way to the long outer ledge. Head all the way down this ledge and out the
door. When you exit the room there will be a treasure chest here that's
actually a Mimic. You probably will want to fight him at this point for his
The next enemies that you'll have to face are two Grislys and a Sucubus
(reminds me of a South Park episode.) As always, put all the Djinn on standby
(even Mia's at this point) and just let the Summons Rip. These guys will die
to approximately three Level-4 summons, so you really don't have anything to
Location: Just north of you when you enter the room.
Directions: Just head north, this isn't head to get.
Location: Northeast of Chest 1.

then go up. No rolling required.

northeast part of the screen and push the vertical log to the left. Head down
and around the broken pillar and go next to Chest 2. Push the horizontal log
there up, and then push the horizontal log that was right below it up as well.
Now, head northwest of Chest 1 and push the vertical log to the right and the
horizontal log up.
To get out of Room 2, simply follow the directions for Chest 4 and just head
south along the west corner of the screen to find the exit.
The next door enemies that you'll have to face are a Lich and two Fiendish
Ghouls. These guys still aren't very tough and three Level-4 summons should
get them. When they're defeated you'll get a handy Psy Crystal for use in
battles later in the game.
CHEST 1: (Left Most)
Gem Location: Just a little northeast of the door.
Item: 333 Coins.
Directions: Equip Catch Beads and use Catch when facing the blue gem on the
part of the original platform that you were on when you entered the room that's
the most northeast.
Notes: To get to the Blue Door where you need to use this game, simply go back
to the main platform and then head along the northwest stepping stone path to
get to the top ledge (the same applies for getting to all of the blue doors.)
CHEST 2: (2nd to the Left)
Gem Location: Due east of Gem 1.
Item: Fairy Ring
Directions: From the northwest corner of the original platform start hopping
southeast. Eventually when you get to the eastern wall the stepping stones
will allow you to make a U-Turn and arrive directly east of the gem. Use Catch
on it to get the second Gem.
Notes: See Chest 1's Notes.
CHEST 3: (2nd from the Right)
Gem Location: Northeast of Gem 1.
Directions: Head along the western stepping stones as if you were going to the
blue doors, but head one square to the east when you can. Start moving north
until you arrive at a row with two long platforms with a small platform in
between them. Face south towards the gem and use Catch to obtain it.
Notes: See Chest 1's Notes.
CHEST 4: (Right Most)
Gem Location: North-northeast of Gem 3.
Item: Smoke Bomb
Directions: From the main platform head northeast, then due north when it
starts to straighten out. You'll find yourself right underneath Gem 4 which
you should use Catch to get.
Notes: See Chest 1's Notes.
From Chest 4 (not Gem 4) Head directly south to land on the northern most
square of a circle. Use reveal to expose a hidden Red Gem in the middle which
you should use Catch on. Once you get the gem start heading west along the
north ledge when there blue doors were and head down the stepping stones on the
western side of the screen. About three from the south you'll be able to jump
west to the ledge with the red door. Do so and continue through it, then head
south and out of Floor 3.
The door enemies for Floor 4 are two Gryphon birds. As always, use all of your
Summons against them. This may or may not kill all of them, and if there's one
remaining just use Ragnarok with Isaac, attack with Garet, defend with Ivan and
Wish with Mia. The Grpyhons shouldn't have too much HP after getting hit by
four Level-4 Summons, so don't worry about dieing too much.
Location: North and a little east of the center of the screen.
Item: 444 Coins
Directions: Go up to the second statue that you reach when going east from the
door. Use Halt on this statue when you have it up against a wall to sneak by
it. Once you get into the shadows use cloak to sneak by another concealed
statue and use reveal to figure out where you're going. This statue can be
obtained by heading to the north wall and going west a little.
Notes: Head back outside the statue.
Location: Due north of the first statue that you get to going east from the
Item: Sleep Bomb
Directions: Go up to the first statue that you get to when going east from the
door. Move to the right on it and halt it, then sneak past and use reveal to
find a treasure chest at the northern most part of this hallway.
Notes: Go back south once you're done.
Location: Northeast corner of the screen.
Item: Storm Gear
Directions: Go up the second statue that you reach when going east from the
door and halt it. Go north and put on cloak to sneak past the first statue.
Use reveal to find out where you're going. A little past the statue in the
dark take a right to arrive near a statue in pure daylight. Sneak past this
statue by staying in the shadows and head clockwise past the statue to get to
the treasure chest.
Notes: Head back out to near the entrance door when you're done.
Location: Near the exit door.
Item: Psy Crystal.
Directions: See exiting the room in the next paragraph.
To exit the room, head west from the entrance door and go up the narrow passage
way. Put on cloak when you get to the shadows, and stay in the shadows for as
long as possible to get past the statue here.
The next door enemies are a Lizard King, a Harridan and two stone soldiers. As
always summon the hell out of 'em (make sure the big arrow falls on the
Lizard.) After one or two summons everything but the Lizard King will be gone,
but he'll stay alive through four summons. The Lizard King also deals a pretty
good blow, and if you're not careful Ivan might get hurt (you may actually want
to defend him in the first round and do a 4-Summon in the next round if you're
afraid of him dieing.)
Location: Northeast corner of the screen, near the stairs.
Item: 555 Coins
Directions: Just head around the ledge counterclockwise to find this Chest.
It's near the stairs.
Location: North-center part of the screen
Item: Lucky Medal
Directions: Head down the stairs located at the northeast part of the screen.
Move the first vertical log that you seen to the left and move the horizontal
log directly southeast of that up. Move the vertical log back to the right,
and head out of the lower area and flip the switch to bring water in. Hop
across the log pattern you just set up to reach the chest.
Notes: Head out of the room when you've completed this.
Location: Southwest part of the screen.
Item: Ninja Garb
Directions: Head down the stairs into the lower area of the screen. Head west
until you see two vertical logs with the edge of a horizontal log in between
them. Push the lower vertical log to the east, then push the horizontal log
south. Push the lower vertical log west, then push the horizontal log to the
right of the upper vertical log south. Now, push the lower vertical log that's
to the west back east, then push the horizontal log you just pushed back up.
Now, go back to the switch to fill the area up with water, and hop across the
path you made to get the chest.
Notes: Go out of the room when you've completed this.
Location: Northwest part of the screen
Directions: See exiting the room in the next paragraph, it will be directly
west of when you hop off the logs in the pattern below.
To get out of the room, head down the stairs in the northeast part of the
screen. Push the 2nd east most horizontal log south, then move the
northeastern most vertical log east. Move the horizontal log one square
southwest of it north. Push the northern most vertical log west, then push the
horizontal log you moved south earlier back north. Push the vertical log
that's now up against the west wall back east, then push the horizontal log
directly north of it south. Now, flood the area by hitting the switch, and
head across the path you've created. Hop to the ledge and head all of the way
south and out of the door.
