    you contact me prior to doing so.  But, seen as how this is my first FAQ ever
    you probably won't want to look at it let alone distribute it.  Hopefully
    you will find some use for it.

    *** A.  The Basics ***
    
    I.  The GAMEPLAY of Cosmic Smash is a very simple idea.  You control a see-
    through man as you consecitively hit a ball into moving or stationary blocks
    until they are all gone.  After all of the blocks are gone you are
    automatically sent to the next level, in some cases you must pick which
    level you want to go to by using the onscreen map.  There are about 50 maps
    with branching paths, but we will get to that later (see "B. Levels").
    
    II.  The CONTROL SCHEME of Cosmic Smash is also very simple:
    
    Analog Stick - Moves your character left and right
    A button - Swing
    B button - Jump
    X button - Jump
    Y button - Trick Smash
    L and R buttons - N\A
    
    III. OPTIONS
    
    When you load the game, you will come to the title screen in which you will
    be able to choose from two options, "Game Start" and "Option".  In the
    options menu, you will have the following choices:
    
    Start Time - The amount of time you will start the game with (default = 80)
    Bonus Time - The amount of time you will be awarded for finishing a level
    within the time limit.
    Audio - Stereo or Mono
    URL
    Controller Setting - You have two controller schemes to choose from, I use
    controller setting "B".  But choose whatever you feel comfortable with.
    
    *** B.  LEVELS ***
    
    I.  THE FULL MAP of the game contains 51 levels.  The 51 being a special
    room you get to by getting a high ranking.  I don't wanna tell you what
    you do in this room, but it is pretty cool.  I believe you get to this
    51 room by scoring in the top 20.  But I may be wrong.  Here is a map.
    It's not exact, but it will help you out.
           secret room                       *
           *                                /
                    *                      *
                    |                     /

                       *
    
    II.  Here is a WALKTHROUGH for some of the levels.  Due to the branching paths
    of the game, I haven't played all of them, so if you have info on some of
    the ones I am missing, email me.
    
    Level 00 (Cosmic Bus 707) - The first level is pretty straight forward, use
    some Trick Smashes, but not too many you don't wanna run out of time.
    Make sure you finish with one though.
    
    Level 01 (Cosmic Bus 717) - Use 2 Trick Smashes, one through the top blocks
    and one through the bottom blocks.
    
    Level 02 (Cosmic Bus 727) - Don't use any Trick Smashes on this one except
    for on the final block.  After you hit the first block, more will appear
    and so on.  When there are two big tall blocks, one on the right side and
    one on the right side, the final block is right after these, so then use
    your Trick Smash
    
    Level 03 (Cosmic Bus 737) - Wait for the big clear block to move to the right
    before you hit the ball.  When it moves to the right Trick Smash the blocks
    on the top
    
    Level 04 (Cosmic Bus 747) - Right when this one starts, press up and Y to do
    and Trick Smash, right before you hit the ball tap to the right a couple of
    times, and it is possible to get all of these blocks on one Trick Smash, just
    keep practicing.
    
    Level 05 (Cosmic Bus 757) - Don't use a Trick Smash, start off the level by
    hitting the block right in the middle, then a bunch of balls should start
    helping you out.  When there are only a few blocks left, start Trick
    Smashing to get the last one.
    
    Level 06 (Cosmic Bus 767) - Wait until the blocks start comming together
    before you hit the ball, right when they come together in the middle, Trick
    Smash low to get them all.
    
    Level 07 (Cosmic Bus 777) - This is one of the hardest levels for me for
    some reason.  Don't use any Trick Smashes except for on the final block.
    Right when the level starts, hold to the left on the analog stick and hit
    the ball all the way to the left, this will knock the ball behind the blocks
    and it will get rid of some of them.  Keep your character in the middle of
    the map and when the ball comes back, hit it all the way to the right to
    get it behind the blocks again, when there is only one left, Trick Smash.
    
    Level 08 (Guruguru Zoo Cosmic Bus Special) - Don't use any Trick Smashes
    except on the final block, this one is real easy.  Just keep using your
    normal swing to get rid of all of the blocks, but they move.  Then finish
     with a Trick Smash.
    
    Level 09 (Shuu Gou Assembly Cosmic Bus Special) -
    
    Level 10 (Haribote Veneer Cosmic Bus Special) - Trick Smash all the way to
    the right and down a little to get both of these, but don't hit the clear
    block.
    
    Level 11 (Hami Gaki Tooth Care Cosmic Bus Special) - Just Trick Smash over
    the clear blocks to the right, and you should get quit a few of these, if
    you don't get them all, repeat.
    
    Level 12 (Yuki Snow Cosmic Bus Special) - On this one, don't Trick Smash
    until you only have one block left, they move so be careful.
    
    Level 13 (Neji Screw Cosmic Bus Special) - Start off with a Trick Smash
    all the way up to bank it to the blocks, and repeat.
    
    Level 14 (Mushi Ba Decayed Tooth Cosmic Bus Special) - Hit the blocks
    normally until there is only one left, Trick Smash it.  The blocks move.
    
    Level 15 (Yuuyake Komo Red Cloud Cosmic Bus Special) - Trick Smash all
    of these, start off with the ones a little to the left, and continue,
    but don't miss cause you will waste a lot of time.
    
    Level 16 (Tajuu Triple Sight Cosmic Bus Special) -
    
    Level 17 (Byoubu Double Wiper Cosmic Bus Special) - Trick Smash up past
    the clear blocs to get these blocks.
    
    Level 18 (Den Pun Capsule Cosmic Smash Special) - Again, Trick Smash
    past the clear blocks to get to the blocks behind.  If you miss some
    don't keep Trick Smashing, it wastes time.
    
    Level 19 (Sho Dou Japanese Paper Cosmic Bus Special) - Don't Trick Smash
    on this one until you get to the last one, I think there are about 10 or
    so blocks, I can't remember.  But, when it gets to the last one, Trick
    Smash it.
    
    Level 20 (Megane Eye Glasses Cosmic Bus Special) - Trick Smash up and over
    the clear blocks, or wait for them to go under the blocks, then finish off
    whats left.  This level is difficult because the clear blocks move in a
    very strange movement.
    
    Level 21 (Baberu Babel Cosmic Bus Special) - This level is close to Cosmic
    Bus 727, after you hit the first block more will appear, of course finish
    with a Trick Smash.
    
    Level 22 (Chidori Goushi Checker Flag Cosmic Bus Special) - Almost the same
    as level 21, but the blocks are red.
    
    Level 23 (Monokage Shadow Cosmic Bus Special) - Trick Smash behind the clear
    blocks to get rid of the blocks on this stage, finish with Trick Smash.
    
    Level 24 (Himawari Danelion Cosmic Bus Special) - This level starts off with
    4 overlying blocks, hit them in the middle, if you miss just finish them.
    Four more blocks will appear when you get all of those, there is no need
    to Trick Smash until the last 4 blocks appear.  They will be up a little and
    to the right on the screen.
    
    Level 25 (Suna Dokei Sandglass Cosmic Bus Special) - Hit the block in the
    middle of the screen and balls will help you out, start Trick Smashing when
    there are only a couple of blocks left.  This is kinda like Cosmic bus 757.
    
    Level 26 (Gyou Retsu Grand Cross Cosmic Bus Special) - Trick Smash if you
    would like behind the clear blocks to get to the yellow ones.  Be careful
    because the clear blocks move.
    
    Level 27 (Taki Waterfall Cosmic Bus Special) - Don't let the clear blocks
    confuse you, the orange ones that are moving are in front of the clear
    blocks.  So, just keep hitting the blocks until there is only one left,
    then Trick Smash it.
    
    Level 28 (Aka Tombo Red Dragonfly Cosmic Bus Special) -
    
    Level 29 (Tsuuki Kou Narrow Under Gate Cosmic Bus Special) - This is
    extremely hard, just kidding this is the easiest level in the game.  Just
    Hold down on the analog stick and hit Y to Trick Smash under the clear
    blocks and get to the red one.
    
    Level 30 (Dodai Foundation Cosmic Bus Special) - Don't hit the red blocks
    on the left or else the clear blocks will start moving all over the place.
    Instead just Trick Smash the red blocks in the back and then finish off
    with Trick Smashing the blocks on the left.
    
    Level 31 (Mogura Tataki Mole Cosmic Bus Special) - Just hit the orange
    blocks until there is only one left, then Trick Smash it, but look out
    for the clear blocks.
    
    Level 32 (Yose Nearer Cosmic Bus Special) -
    
    Level 33 (Taku San Plenty Cosmic Bus Special) - Just keep Trick Smashing
    to get through all of the blocks, there are a ton of them, better hope you
    have a bunch of time left.
    
    Level 34 (Naname Slant Cosmic Bus Special) - This one is easy, just hit
    two of the red blocks and then Trick Smash the last one.  I usually hit
    the one on the bottom right then the top left, and then I Trick Smash
    the one behind the clear block in the middle.
    
    Level 35 (Kasutera Sponge Cake Cosmic Bus Special) - The orange blocks move
    on this level, but nevertheless, it isn't too hard.  So, just hit the
    orange blocks, without using your Trick Smash, until there is one left,
    then you guessed it, Trick Smash it.
    
    Level 36 (Shin Dou Multi Frequency Cosmic Bus Special) - Pretty straight
    forward level with just a lot of blocks, Trick Smash 'em if ya wanta.
    
    Level 37 (Buraun Kan Picture Cosmic Bus Special) - Smash all of the green
    blocks.  Trick Smash the last one.
    
    Level 38 (Yurikago Cradle Cosmic Bus Special) - This level looks hard, but
    it is really easy.  Just wait for the red blocks to line up the Trick
    Smash right down the middle and you should get all of them,if you don't
     just wash rinse repeat.
    
    Level 39 (Mari Hopper Cosmic Bus Special) - Don't Trick Smash, just hit
    the yellow blocks until theres one left, Trick Smash it.
    
    Level 40 (Akiko Totem Pole Cosmic Bus Special) - This one can be kinda
    hard with all of those clear blocks, but just use your regular swing
    to get rid of them until there is one left, then Trick Smash it.
    
    Level 41 (Ringo L Cosmic Bus Special) -  This level looks harder than it
    is.  Start off with a Trick Smash through all of the red blocks on the
    left, then work your way to the right and Trick Smash the last pink one
    on the top right.
    
    Level 42 (Fuji Yama Mountain Cosmic Bus Special) - Start off this level
    with a Trick Smash and Trick Smash your way through the whole thing or
    else it will take forever, make sure you finish with a Trick Smash too.
    
    Level 43 (Nan Kan Narrow Gate Cosmic Bus Special) - This one is really
    easy.  Just Trick Smash all the way to the right and the ball should
    bounce around and through the clear ones to reach the red one.  If the
    ball should come back, sometimes it does, just repeat.
    
    Level 44 (Kabuto Helmet Cosmic Bus Special) - Similar to a lot of the
    other levels with the orange blocks.  Just hit the orange blocks
    without using your Trick Smash until there is one left, then Trick Smash
    it.  But watch out for those clear blocks.
    
    Level 45 (Omochi Bulge Cosmic Bus Special) - Just hit the yellow blocks
    with your normal swing until there is one left, then Trick Smash!
    
    Level 46 (Kidou Drive Line Cosmic Bus Special) - Get rid of the few
    blue blocks on the left, then Trick Smask throught the remaining.  This
    one isn't too hard.
    
    Level 47 (Tsukushi Field Horsetail Cosmic Bus Special) - Trick Smash all
    the way to the right and knock out the orange blocks, then repeat to the
    left, it is easier than it looks.  It should only take you a few shots.
    
    Level 48 (Gabyou Pin Cosmic Bus Special) - This one is kinda hard becuase
    the blocks are so small, but it shouldn't take you too long.  Just make
    sure that you Trick Smash the last small red block.
    
    Level 49 (Me Ippai To The Full Cosmic Bus Special) - Ummm, a lot of blue
    blocks, just Trick Smash through all of them.  Takes a while, so be
    patient.
    
    Turn off your cellphones, have fun!!
    
    **Level 50 (Monban Keeper Cosmic Bus Extra)** - This is a really cool
    level, I wish there was more than one of them.  There is a guy you have
    to get the ball past to get rid of the two blocks on opposite sides
    of the room.  What you do is knock the ball all the way to one side,
    he will hit it back and you Trick Smash the block on the other side
    of the level as him.  Repeat this, if you have a little time, it won't
    be too hard for you.
    
    *** C.  TRICKS ***
    
    I.  TRICK SMASHES are very important for the following reasons:
    
         1.  You can knock through as many blocks as you want.
         2.  If you finish a level with a Trick Smash you get a bonus.
         3.  It is faster than a regular hit
         4.  If you finish EVERY level in the game with a Trick Smash
             you get a 10,000,000 bonus.
    
    To perform a Trick Smash you just press down the Y button.  But if
    you press the analog stick in different directions while you press
    the Y button, you can do many different Trick Smashes such as:
    backflips, you can jump off the wall and do Trick Smashes and you
    can do between the leg Trick Smashes.  Just experiment with the
    different combinations you can do.
    
    II.  DISADVANTAGES of over using the Trick Smash are as follows:
    
         1.  It takes longer to recover from a Trick Smash
         2.  The amount of time left decreases 4 times as fast during
             a trick smash
    
    Yes, that is true, watch the counter on the ground when you are
    doing a Trick Smash, it speeds up 4 times faster, so don't over
    use the Trick Smash.
    
    III.  TRICK FINISHES are also very important.
    
    To do a Trick Finish, you just finish the level by knocking out the
    last block with a Trick Shot.  Sounds easier than it is.  By
    finishing every level with a Trick Shot you will get a huge bonus
    at the end of the game.
    
    *** ONLINE RANKING ***
    
    When you get good enough at Cosmic Smash, you will be given a password
    at the end of your game.  With this password, you can go to
    www.cosmicsmash.com and enter the online rankings page.  It is very
    cool.  You can see what routes the top 200 people took and see there
    score and everything.  I am think I am ranked like 40th right now.  But
    I will get better, haha.
    
    Well,  GO PLAY COSMIC SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
