Dr. Wily's Castle Stage 1

You have defeated each boss, but it's time to move on to Dr. Wily's Castle. First, I suggest visiting the store and stocking up. Once you enter the Dr. Wily stages you can't come back to the store without starting over. Even a saved game will start over from the beginning.

The screws you have found can be traded for items here. I suggest you get the lower-left device that automatically fills weapon tanks when you pick up weapon energy, if you haven't already. Stock up on as many Energy Tanks and lives as you can. You may want some of the items that prevent spike death and death from falling in a pit as well. The half damage item can come in handy during the final stage. The Mystery Tank will fill up all your health and weapon tanks, or turn all on-screen creatures into extra lives if they are already full. When you are finished, exit the store and select the Dr. Wily stage.

This first segment is easy. Use your Jewel Satellite and just run to the right, jumping over pits as you come to them. The creatures generally can't hurt you.

You've fought this mini-boss before. Just switch to your Tornado Blow weapon and do as much damage as you can with it. If you run out, try using the Hornet Chaser. After he is defeated, head right. Don't go back down the ladder or you'll have to fight him again.
