Section A. Version Information

V 1.0 - 8/22/09 - All Vivosaur locations given.

To follow:

-- Jewels that can be found in each level. 
-- Information on how to find the special "vivosaurs"


Section B. Upgrades

Get the upgrades for your sonar as soon as possible, as it makes it 
far easier to find rarer fossils and fewer rocks

-Monitor Upgrade 1 Ė Increases the size of your sonar.
-Monitor Upgrade 2 Ė Max size for the sonar.
-Fossils Filter Upgrade 1 Ė Lowers the chance of finding rocks.
-Fossil Filter Upgrade 2 Ė Greatly lowers the chance of finding 
rocks. I havenít found a rock since getting this upgrade.
-Fossil Chip Upgrade 1 Ė Allows you to find 3rd fossil type.
-Fossil Chip Upgrade 2 Ė Allows you to find last fossil type.


Section C. Finding the fossil you want

Often when you are digging up fossils, a fossil fighter will jump up 
out of the hole that youíve just dug up and challenge you for the 
jewel/fossil rock. Win and you get the rock.  Now, you will always 
be challenged to fight if you find a jewel rock, but being challenged 
for a fossil is much rarer. If you get challenged for a fossil, there is a 
50% chance that that fossil is a rare Red Fossil. Red fossils are a 
great way to easily get over 100% when you are cleaning the fossil 
because they automatically give you a +25 point bonus. So fight for 
those fossils!

Section E. Credits

Full credit to RED Entertainment for coming out with such a great game.
At first I thought it would be a simpler version of Pokemon/Digimon, but 
this game has its own unique qualities that make it an excellent game to
play.
