JET FORCE GEMINI



All Hidden Characters

Ants into Pants Cheat
This cheat turns all the enemy drones into stick figures with big pants. "Ants into Pants" becomes available in the Cheats menu (located under Options) as soon as you have collected 300 enemy heads.


Break Fall
Any veteran Mario or Banjo-Kazooie player will have already figured this one out. Falling from high places causes your character to take damage, but you can break your fall with the help of Lupus' rocket paws or Vela and Juno's jetpacks (only if you have fuel, in the case of Vela and Juno).



Change Characters on Map Screen

Not really a gameplay tip but this feature isn't mentioned in the manual, so we figured we should include it. There is no need to go to the Character Screen if you need to quickly change characters when selecting a new world to fly to. You can change your character on the map screen, too. Simply use the C Buttons to switch the player icons in the corner until you've got the character you want

Let Floyd Help
If you want to save on ammo, use Floyd -- even if a second player is not available. Find a hiding place, like a crate or a rock, stand behind it and press START on the second controller to activate Floyd (once you have put him together on Tawfret). Now shoot down your enemies from a safe distance, without wasting any ammo. Do the same if you want to take out crates. You can also use Floyd to snip even when you don't have sniper rifle ammo. When playing with two players, player one can hide behind a box and zoom in on far away enemies with the sniper rifle. Whether player one has a clear line of fire or not, Floyd's higher up position ensures that player two can do the work without wasting ammo.


Rainbow Blood Cheat
Collect 100 ant heads of any color to unlock the rainbow blood cheat. You can activate this cheat by going to the Cheat Menu, which is located on the Options.


Reach High Up Gems
In order to grab the many health gems located in seemingly unreachable areas -- such as on the SS Anubis generators or on beams in the cave levels -- shoot them using your pistol or machine gun. If you hit them correctly, they will move and slide down to your level.


Secret Flame Thrower Ammo
If you're low on Flame Thrower ammo, look for Tribals that carry lanterns. Shoot these Tribals once to make them drop their lanterns (be careful not to kill them), then pick them up to use the fire as Flame Thrower ammo


Selective Ammo
If you're running low on ammo for the Shotgun, Pistol or Machine Gun, select the weapon you want to refill (even when it's empty) when collecting weapons from dead enemies. This will automatically give ammo to the weapon you picked. This strategy is invaluable to keep your Machine Gun ammo count high.


Special Item Locations
Jet Force Gemini contains a number of special items in addition to the regular power-ups such as gems, backpacks and Gemini Holders. This listing tells you what the items can be used for and where to find them.

Fish Food
Where: Goldwood, first area after landing pad (treasure chest)
One of the first secrets in the game can be accessed right from the Goldwood entry area, even before you enter the Outset zone. Look for a secret passage near the right rock wall. Behind it, you will find the fishpond and a treasure box that contains fish food. Although it's listed among your weapons, the fish food is hardly lethal. You can use the fish food to feed the fishes (duh) or other hungry creatures, such as the creepy maggots or Flopsy the dog (which keeps them from attacking you). The food can also be used to distract your enemy or to detonate proximity mines without wasting any ammo.

Ear Plugs
Where: SS Anubis, Hold (Floyd Mission)
The ear plugs are the perfect protection for sensitive ears, especially when around noisy Tribals but the Jet Force team can't use them. To get the ear plugs, get a Gold or Expert rating in the Floyd mission in the Hold area of the SS Anubis. Once you have access to the Water Ruin stage, bring the Ear Plugs to Ivana the Bear.

Pants
Where: Tawfret, Bridge (on top of a tree)
What a charming place to forget one's shorts... In this desolate swamp haunted by zombie drones and giant bettles, a pair of shorts hangs from a tree. Bring them to their rightful owner, Gimlet, who awaits in the same stage.

Crowbar
Where: Tawfret, Bridge (from Gimlet)
This handy tool lets you open the heavy trap doors on Tawfret and Walkway. To get it, bring the pants back to Gimlet.

Jeff & Barry II Arcade Chip
Where: Ichor, Military Base (Floyd Mission)
Only if you have found this circuit board can you play the Jeff & Barry II racing game in the nightclub arcade on Ichor (Jeff & Barry I can be played without it). Get a Gold rating in the Ichor Military Base Floyd Mission.

Specialist Magazine
Where: Eschebone, Cortex
Cough. Specialist magazine, eh? We know where you can find it if you want it... Go to Eschebone's Cortex stage to find it, then bring it to Fernando who is hanging out on Rith Essa (Bluff). Fernando will give you the Mine Key in return for the... uh... inspiration literature.

Mine Key
Where: Rith Essa, Bluff
You need this key in order to get into the Rith Essa mines. Once you've got the Specialist Magazine from Eschebone, visit Fernando and trade it against the key.

Gold Bars
Where: Celulean, Dune
Look for three gold bars in the Cerulean outdoor area. You can use them as payment for Fish Face's Tri-Rocket Launcher in the same level.
