Fishin' For Trouble

It was a great day for fishing in Spoonerville, so Goofy and his pals went out
to the ocean with their boats.  Cruising for the big ones in open waters, Pete
and PJ were suddenly caught in the ominous shadow of a gigantic ship.  When
Goofy and Max looked up, they saw a huge pirate ship heading out to Spoonerville
Island.  Pete and PJ were onboard, victims of a pirate kidnapping!  Goofy rowed
for all he was worth, but he couldn't catch up to the pirate ship before it
landed on the island.  determined to rescue their friends, Goofy and Max set out
to explore and find the pirate stronghold.

Once ashore on Spoonerville Island, Goofy and Max soon find that the island is
infested with a notorious band of pirates!  Following the twisted paths through

But when cornered by the burly buccaneers, Goofy and Max are ready wit a barrage
of barrels that will send them scurrying back to the sea!

unwanted visitors away from his gold.  It's a battle of wits as Goofy and Max
try to solve these puzzles in order to save their chums before it's too late.
But not all of Keelhaul Pete's puzzle rooms are that easy!  Sometimes they
require you to kick ALL the blocks onto the markers before they will open the
gate to a special key or doorway!

Puzzle Tip!

back on screen and the blocks will reset to their original positions.

Helpful Hints

1)  Goofy is a bit stronger than Max and can blast some big pirates with a
single barrel.
2)  Max makes up for his lack of strength with blinding speed.  Making a quick
dash for the doorway, Max can run rings around even the fastest pirates.
3)  Max and Goofy can play catch with items like coconuts, barrels, and even
cannonballs.  Just raise your hands and have your partner throw the item to you.
You'll catch the item and immediately be ready to let it fly!
4)  If Max or Goofy gets hit by an enemy, they will be invincible for a second.
Use this time to get by troublesome enemies or areas.
5)  If you are having trouble with a puzzle room, take some time and try to
figure it out.  Sometimes the answer is easier than you think.
