     Hi!
    My name is Clement Chan, and let me welcome you to my Tech Romancer Mini Game
    Guide. This guide was intended to help gamers out there who had problems on
    playing these mini-games that are available in this game.
     In the beginning, I had actually decided to make a full walkthrough together
    with the movelist for Tech Romancer, but I decided to start off with this
    walkthrough first, hopefully to bring a full walkthrough for Tech Romancer
    coming on.
     I would like to request gamers out there to read this walkthrough first before
    submitting any questions, until you are really sure that you can't really
    proceed any further. I accept any questions related to this game, whether
    problems that you had encountered or others.
     If you had any questions, suggestions, tips and hints that may help this
    guide, please e-mail to me at saigoheiki@gmail.com . Take full notice that
    proper
    and full credits would be given to those who had submitted or help this
    walkthrough in any way, whether correcting mistakes that I may made  or
    otherwise.
     There would also be spoilers in my guide, as I may be revealing a little of
    the storyline in the game and other secrets that may be considered as spoilers.
     Well, just enjoy the rest of my guide and I hope you like it.
    
                                                        - C l e m e n t   C h a n
    
    -------------------------------------
    [1.1] About Tech Romancer
    -------------------------------------
    
     Tech Romancer can be solely described as a robot fighting game, which is fully
    in 3D. This is just to brief out the review that I had written down here.
     Fighting may not be a big idea, as Capcom is popular with in this genre. But
    on the other hand, Capcom is a total ingenious for creating a game with tons of
    replay value, like the mini-games, hidden animation sequences and other modes.
     The graphics itself is purely sweet, with extremely well detailed robot models
    and other enjoyable hand-drwan pictures in the game. This might proves out that
    why anime in Japan is really popular, because of its cool pictures and
    graphics.
     While there are many modes for you to enjoy, you can also have some fun
    fighting in a two-player versus game. It's cool, just to say, with simply lots
    of unbelievable things to do. Honest.

    [1.4] Review
    -------------------------------------
    
    Tech Romancer, a game which involves robot-fighting style using all sorts of
    cool and incredible powers to defeat enemies along the way, with a special type
    of battle system. Originally, this game was in Japanese, by a long name of
    Super Battle Steel Story Kikaioh. Maybe some of you wouldn’t like another taste
    of Capcom’s latest and new installment to this game but Tech Romancer proved to
    be one of the successors this time. Added in, there are many hidden secrets to
    unlock, together with many things to you that will keep you addicted and
    entertained for a whole month.
    
    Graphics - 9
    In terms of graphics, they’re very impressive with detailed models of robots
    and others. Colours are used wisely in and out in the game, whether it’s during
    battle time or in the menu. As the whole battle system will be in 3D, the
    background can rotate in full 3D motion with their own detailed and colourful
    things on the way. At certain areas, there will be houses and buildings that
    you can destroy to get an item which can be used to deliver an attack to the
    enemy.
    
    Perhaps what could be said is the totally cool hand-drawn unanimated pictures
    when you play in the Story mode. They look totally funny, and it is almost like
    watching a high-tech comic out of your television screen. Of course, there are
    many hidden animated sequences that could be viewed, and all of them are
    personally hand-drawn, together with the introduction movie. Why hand-drawn?
    There are no reasons really. They seem to look much better when done that way,
    and add in some computer colours to make it look much better. And for your
    information, some of the animated sequences look more like a Japanese cartoon
    straight from the television channel.
    
    Music - 9
    Most of the music are surprisingly good, as Capcom and its Japanese music
    programmers and sequences have done to this game. The music suits well in every
    single scene in the game, especially during the story progress as they can be
    comical and humourous. The in-game battle music is quite nice to hear; tough
    and quick sounding instruments are used to make the battle sort of more
    exciting.
    
    Sound effects can be described as seemingly real, ranging from robotic
    movements to laser beams that can destroy enemies in one hit. All in all, you
    will never be disappointed to know that these clever people have added a lot of
    sound effects to this game, as every movement that you made, and every single
    action will produce a minimal and satisfying battle sound to change it into a
    real, robotic clashing battle. That’s not all, in the menu itself, you can hear
    some kind of computerized sound that can be heard repeatedly if you move from
    option to option.
    
    Voices can be a bit disappointing, as they are all in Japanese, considering
    this game is a release of a Japanese game. But there’s a subtitle in English
    though, which covers every single menu and a cool English translation of the
    dialogues. The voices can be considered a lot, considering that there are more
    than ten robots in the game and with their pilots, together with ‘sub-actors’
    and actresses in every single robot’s storyline. There is also an English
    narrator, which helps and explains more about the game, and speaks in the
    battle itself.
    
    Gameplay - 9
    In this game, the battle system are clearly in 3D, which shows that these
    robotic battles are going to be exciting. You can grab several items in the
    game, which are disguised in a tiny pyramid-shaped box and several other
    shapes. Collecting this and pressing a few combination buttons will let you use
    the attack instantly. You can also easily assign a certain button to certain
    moves that needs you to press few buttons at one time.
    
    While fighting in the game, you will notice there is a Damage Bar on the side
    of your character’s screen. If you receive an attack from an enemy, this bar
    will fill in little by little, so you must take every single opportunity from
    raising it to 100%. If you had noticed, you can protect from your enemy’s
    attack but if the attack is too strong, the percentage of your armor will
    decrease from time to time, until you heard the English narrator speak in a
    loud tone, “Armor destroyed!”. You can still protect after this, but you are
    unable to resist the damage that has been thrown to you, thus your damage bar
    will be filled in a little.
    
    After destroying your enemy on the first round, damage your enemy until his or
    her Damage bar is filled until half of it. The words Final Attack and the
    ever-repeating sound will tell you that it’s time to use the Final Attack to
    your enemy. You actually need to press A, B, X and Y buttons together but you
    can easily assign a button to use it. You must be near your enemy and make sure
    your enemy didn’t block, in order to make the Final Attack successful; it all
    depends on the character that you have chosen. Using this successfully will
    allow you to see how your character damage the opponent until his Damage bar
    rise up to full. No matter whatever enemy you’re fighting against, if you can
    connect the move, you will successfully bash up your enemy to exploding pieces.
    
    So, finishing my long explanation on the battle system, I’ll move on to the
    various modes in the game. Though little, they actually provides what actually
    proves to be the longest replay value ever. The Story mode, as the name states
    it all, you will view each of the character’s own unique story, some funny and
    cheerful while some a bit sad and hateful. Depending on the character you had
    chosen, you will have to bash up and destroy enemies based on the story itself.
    But usually, you will have to meet the final villain in the game, which will be
    exceedingly hard.
    
    The Hero Challenge mode actually is more of a Ranking mode, but you can earn
    money as the currency G in the game. You will have to fight 12 robots in the
    game, each increased in difficulty as you fight. There are no limits in
    continues, whether in Story or Hero Challenge mode, so if you actually lose a
    battle, you can still continue in the game. Naturally, you will have to fight
    the last boss which as usual and as I have said, very hard. You’ll need or your
    good skills in order to beat him, or change the difficulty level in the Options
    menu a bit.
    
    Tatsumi Techno Dome is a mode that will let you view the secrets in the game,
    if you had successfully unlocked some of them. You can also download mini-games
    (these mini-games will let you earn more G in the game, which is simply cool!).
    These nifty things that cost you 128 blocks is actually worth it as you will
    play all of them non-stop, providing simply unlimited replay value and fun.
    Pressing the right directional button will let you access the place where you
    can buy secrets or menus, depending on how much money you have. Some of them
    are downright expensive, but it also based on how much time you had spent on
    the mini-games or Hero Challenge mode.
    
    Controls - 8
    This is what actually can be a major headache if you don’t know the right
    controls. You can easily assign buttons to perform different tasks, so it
    actually makes the whole fighting system easier. Not to mention that choosing
    the right buttons will transform the whole fighting game into an easier and
    more un-complex environment. If you are having problems to defeat enemies, try
    changing the controls. It probably helps.
    
    Replay Value - 9
    This game provides unlimited replay value, actually. With the few exciting
    mini-games for you to tinker with, the tons of new modes for you to see, there
    are simply many things for you to do and you can’t get bored with this game! As
    I can’t really mention the secrets in the game, I must say they really provide
    fun and totally addictive modes that keeps you coming back for more. Even after
    you can unlock all of them, you still need to finish up a few things in order
    to get those nifty sequences and extra hidden things! To be honest, this game
    is one of Capcom’s best ever created to transform it into a game with tons of
    replay value, if not unlimited.
    
    Overall - 9
    Can probably be described as the best unlimited replay value fighting game ever
    created. With tons of things to collect and see, you will never be bored with
    this game. Fighting battle system is already unique, and Capcom’s ingenious
    ideas to add a lot of things to this game is actually one of the best fighting
    game up-to-date. There’s a holding record of over 200 hours of replay value, so
    play this game over with your friends in Versus mode, and you can see how you
    and your friend could enjoy this game.
    
    Technical
    -----
    + Nice, cool graphics that makes this game looks really great!
    + Unique battle system that will keep you playing this game for hours!
    + Last of all, the unlimited replay value system, with its mini-games and modes
    to keep you entertained!
    
    Mechanical
    -----
    - It’s better to have English voices over Japanese ones, but it can be just me.
    - Playing this game everyday non-stop will make you think that this game will
    be boring.
    - Controls can be slightly harder for those who are beginners.

    [3.2] Hints and Tips
    -------------------------------------
    
    Well actually, there are nothing really to be said about this game as it's
    really straightforward and you can close your eyes and tap random buttons
    although you'll lose points unnecessarily.
    
    To brief out what I had typed in the Official Guide, you need to kiss Junpei
    (the sharp-haired guy) and punch the girls. Odd, isn't it? If you are wondering
    why it's the other way round, it's because you are probably controlling as
    Pollin, the girl who loves Junpei.
    
    If you did not failed a single time, you will easily get an extra 5 seconds to
    your time. That's why, if you had mastered this game by not failing once, you
    can easily pick up extra time and more points.
    
    Of course, if you did the right thing, you will gain points but if you kiss or
    punch the wrong person, you'll lose points. That's the basic system.

    [4.2] Hints and Tips
    -------------------------------------
    
    You are now controlling part of Twinzam V's robot, which means that you must
    guide it to the other unit in order to combine to become one. But on the way,
    you will encounter various obstacles like tiny monsters and missiles. You can't
    move up or down but can only move left and right.
    
    Tapping up actually lets you move faster but is a weaker version of pressing
    the A button and tapping down will slow you down considerably. The following is
    the list what will make you lose:
    
    1. If you knock onto any obstacles (sometimes there will be glitch,
       especially when you are near the other unit and you ram to other obstacles
       but safely pass through).
    2. Lose time. Every two stages will decrease the time by 5 seconds.
    3. Pass by at the side of the other unit will cause your own ship
       automatically explode. Don't ask me why.
    4. Knocking the rear of the other ship. You need to go directly middle and
       underneath it.
    
    See the gauge that moves up and down. The higher and fuller the gauge, the
    better. If the gauge is totally full when you combine with the other ship, you
    will gain maximum score for that stage.
    
    There are five stages in total and if you can complete all five of them, the
    words GREAT! will appear together with the bonus score and money of 5000g for
    you.
    
    There is a particular pattern for every stage so if you played for a while, you
    would recognize the patterns. Below is the list that will help you through
    every stage and their respective patterns. Some of them are gotten from CJayC's
    FAQ, thanks to him!
    
    .---------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    |STAGES   | GUIDE                                                           |
    .---------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    | Stage 1 | Just go all the way to the left while pressing up to speed up   |
    |         | slightly slower than pressing the A button. When you see the    |
    |         | time is at 23 seconds, immediately stop speeding up and slow    |
    |         | down to dodge the few obstacles. Head straight for the ship     |
    |         | directly underneath it. Try and make sure that you gauge is     |
    |         | full!                                                           |
    .---------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    | Stage 2 | First, dodge the first two things coming by going to the most   |
    |         | left while holding the up button to slightly speed up. Continue |
    |         | holding the up button until I told you to stop. Avoid the two   |
    |         | missiles coming from the right side, and then a tiny thing.     |
    |         | After seeing the the tiny thing pass by, immediately head to the|
    |         | right side while continue to hold the up button. Then, do some  |
    |         | dodging here and you will see your ship.                        |
    .---------------------------------------------------------------------------.|
    Stage 3 | Get 4/5 of the way to the right for the first two missiles, 2/3 |
    |         | right for the next two on the right, then 4/5 for the next two  |
    |         | on the left, then dock center.                                  |
    .---------------------------------------------------------------------------.|
    Stage 4 | Get all the way to the left for the first four missiles, then   |
    |         | move center and dodge for a bit before docking.                 |
    .---------------------------------------------------------------------------.|
    Stage 5 | Get all the way to the left for the first three missiles, then  |
    |         | move center and wait to dock.                                   |
    .---------------------------------------------------------------------------.

    [4.3] Points System

    Well, here's the points system based on how many percent that you dock based on
    the gauge:

    [5.2] Hints and Tips
    -------------------------------------
    
    For beginners, it is highly recommended that you use Gonzalles as your chosen
    character as he has the highest number of chances, 8. The higher the chances,
    the lower the points and money that you will get but the lower the chances, the
    more points and money that you will obtain.
    
    Take note that some of the characters' pictures are mixed up. For example, when
    you play as Reika, Shadow R's picture will appear while when you play as Shadow
    Red, Reika's picture will appear. Arekshim and Yale's picture has been
    exchanged too, for some reason, as Capcom did not inspect it properly.
    
    There are 20 stages in total, and after a long battle fight, I completed it at
    last. For every 2 stages, your enemy's chances will increase by 1 and the
    battle will be slightly faster and faster as the stages go on. Successfully in
    completing all 20 stages will let you see the words GREAT! and 10000g and
    points added to your total score. Cool, eh?
    
    The trick is, try and pay attention on using only one move so you can block and
    attack at the right times without getting hit at least once. It's easy once you
    know what to do. For example, I keep using Rock so I can block from enemy's
    Paper and attack when it's enemy's Special and Scissors. Try and use Special
    first in the beginning, it always works but sometimes, your enemy will be
    clever and use Rock to attack.
