    TRIVIA
    Released in May 1986.

    Goemon is based on Ishikawa Goemon, an infamous outlaw in 16th century Japan. Some stories tell of Goemon becoming a criminal after stealing from his cruel master and killing his pursuers. Later he becomes a merchant in Kyoto and Osaka by day and a thief by night. Whilst some remember him as simply a thief, others celebrate him as being a Japanese Robin Hood, robbing from the rich to give to the poor.

    SCORING
    Collecting a weapon: 100 points.
    Killing a warrior: 200 points.
    Killing a second warrior: 400 points.
    Killing a third warrior: 800 points.
    Warriors when powered up: 800 points each.
    Killing a flying boss: 1,600 points.
    Collecting a gold bar at the end of a level: 800-4,000 points.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Attack the moon by Kiseru (Button 1). If your attack hits, the rabbit will fall down.
    • Warriors can only fire at you when on a platform, so bouncing them up into the air is useful to prevent them firing.
    • When you collect a golden hammer keep running right, and warriors will keep appearing and running into you for 800 points each.
    • If you are faced with several warriors, bounce a few off the bottom of the screen to get them out of your way.
    • Try not to use the last 'head weapon' you collect, as you can carry it forward to the next stage. It's very useful to start a stage already armed.
    • When collecting the gold bars if you jump to try to get the furthest to the right, it is worth a higher score.
