Evil Swampy and his followers have stolen the magic ruby, which made it once
possible for Giana and Maria to return from their dream. Many creatures are
after this ruby, but does it really have power, or was it just a coincidence?
As this is not bad enough, Swampy fell in love at first sight with Giana's
sister Maria and shamelessly kidnapped her. She simply has been at the wrong
place at the wrong time.

You take over the role of Giana, get back the magic ruby and most important of
all, save your beloved sister Maria and get home save! Good Luck!

The regular enemies are usually pretty weak, just as in the original game.
Most of the time it's enough to bump 'em with your feet.

Bosses are considered being hard, so make sure you find all bonus caves, so
you can gain 1 UP each 100 rubies. You will need them desperately!
