The Gizzle Wap and The Strange Red Tree.
Deep in the JThainian forest, in the clearing where the Zazzle Flies
play a Strange Red Tree took root over night. It made an unsettling
hum and gave off a noxious odor poisoning many of the flies.
Camy, the strongest of his brood sought help from the defender
of the woods, a small bouncing creature known as the Gizzle Wap.
He would know what to do. 
The Gizzle Wap's solution was simple: Remove the Strange Red Tree.
But there was another problem. Coinciding with the appearance
of the red tree came the Myrmica a race of mindless insects that
feed upon the inhabitants of the forest.  Even worse the Myrmica
never come alone.  They serve the Invicta. Unlike the Myrmica, the
Invicta are cunning and tenacious. They will not be satisfied until
they control the entire forest or see its destruction.
The tree is most certainly their machination.
The plan to remove the tree and defeat the Invicta was not as simple. 
The only creatures strong enough to pull the tree out of the ground
are the Pegsi. The Gizzle Wap would attract the Pegsi to the clearing
with cloud fruit and convince them to remove the Red Tree.  Once
the tree has been removed, the Invctas magic will be weakened
and their lair should be revealed. The final step will be to confront the
Left and Right to move the Gizzle Wap from screen to screen
Up makes the Gizzle Wap jump.
Hold the Fire Button in to use the Zazzle Fly as a shield in front of you.
Hold the Fire Button and Jump to make the Zazzle Fly fly into the air.
Jump Then hold the fire Button in and pull down to position the Zazzle Fly below you to attack enemies near the ground.
Down without pressing the fire button during the fight will eat a Cloud Fruit and heal you.
