Go to the casino level. It helps to get rid of any
black pants wearing monkeys in the first part of the level. Break
open all of the slot machines in a counter-clockwise direction.
After awhile you will meet a rat-looking enemy that takes your
money when you run into it. Let him hit you and allow him to take
your gold. Then, quickly hit him and all of your gold will be
dropped. Grab all of it quickly; after you collect 5 gold pieces
they turn to silver stars. After 5 silver stars, they turn into
gold stars which are worth 10 gold pieces. Continue hitting the
slots and you will find one more of these rats.
After you defeat Spector (Mech-Monkey Sub-Boss) and unlock the
extra monkeys, go to the Simian Citadel level. Toward the end
of this level, you will find a wizard-monkey named Tommy. If you
do not catch him, he constantly creates enemies. One of these
enemies is the rat thief. Let him steal your coins, then steal
them back. You can use the Super Hoop to catch him. Keep repeating
this until your coins are at 999. Note: even if you catch Tommy
and save the game, you can still return in time trial mode to
perform this trick.
Go to Casino City level and destroy the slot machines going left
and around in a circle. Once all the slot machines are destroyed,
leave the room and return. Destroy all the slot machines again
and repeat if desired. Note: You may want do this after you catch
all the monkeys in the level so that the monkeys with black pants
and guns do not hurt you.
In the Ninja Hideout level, there is a garden of bamboo
plants. Also nearby are a couple of rocks. If you break the rocks
with your stick, there will be some cookies and a jacket. You
can keep going to another part of the level and returning. The
cookies and life will be there again. Do this as many times as
needed to get 99 lives. Note: The fastest way to do this is to
wear your Super Hoop to move faster.
