1. Introductions
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
=====================
1.1 Version History
=====================
November 16, 2005

Version 1.0
Started the FAQ and completed it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. The Basics
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
=====================
2.1 How to Play
=====================
The point of this game is to complete rows of the same cookies until there are 
no more cookies left. The game consists of 6 cookies which are hearts, flowers, 
diamonds, checks, circles, and Yoshi. Yoshi's cookie appears when you complete 
one of the cookie bars located on the bottom right. Yoshi cookies act as every 
cookie so as you are completing rows of cookies, you can replace any cookie with
a Yoshi cookie. To complete rows of cookies, you either combo them or chain 
them. The game gives you a couple of seconds when the stage starts to at least 
finish some rows. After those seconds are up, new cookies will appear vertically
and horizontally.

Whenever you complete a row, the new cookies that are coming will be destroyed 
along with it. If you still don't understand, then look at the chart below.

O = Blocks that are getting completed

AAWZA

WXAXX	A
XZXZX	W
OOOOO	O
AZAZW	A
AYAYA	A

In addition, the other remaining new cookies that are coming will get pushed 
back one panel for each completion.

Chains
----------
There are two ways to chain in this game. The first way is when you perform a 
combo and blocks fall to perform another combo. The second way is when you 
perform more than one combo simultaneously. Every time you perform a chain, you 
will double the amount of points you would normally get. So if you make chains, 
then you would get POINTS x 2, then POINTS x 4, then POINTS x 8, and so on. 

Combos
-----------
Combos are performed when you complete a row. The more cookies in the combo, the
more points you will get.

2-cookie row - 10 points
3-cookie row - 20 points
4-cookie row - 40 points
5-cookie row - 80 points
6-cookie row - 160 points
7-cookie row - 320 points

Overview
=====================

Title Screen
------------
There will be a selection from 1P or VS Mode.

Main Menu
------------
Rounds - There will be a selection from round 1 - 10. To play stages 11-99, you 
must set the round to 10, set the music to OFF, set the speed to HI, then 
highlight round and hold up and press select. It should go to round 11 and now 
you can choose any stage you like until you turn the game off.

Speed - This is the level of speed of which the cookies will fall. The options 
are LOW, MED, and HI.

Music Type - There are 4 different options named A, B, C, and OFF. You cannot 
change the song while playing so choose the song you like best.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Walkthrough
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Only the first four of stages aren't random so I will only cover the first four.

Stage 1-1
----------
X O X O
O X O X
X O X O
O X O X

There are many solutions but just move the 2nd column and 4th column up.

Stage 1-2
----------
X O X
O X O
X O X

Move the top row right once and move the bottom row left once. Then move any 
piece up.

Stage 1-3
----------
X O X O X
O X O X O
X O X O X
O X O X O

Just move the 2nd and 4th row down once.

Stage 1-4  
----------
X O X O X
O X O X O
X O X O X
O X O X O
X O X O X

Move the top row right once, then the bottom row left once, then the middle row 
right once. After that you should be able to solve it on your own.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Endings
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you don't want to spoil yourself, then you shouldn't read on. Since this is a
puzzle game, there barely isn't anything to spoil at all.

=====================
4.1 Cut-Scenes
=====================
After completing the whole round, they show a mini cut-scene.
Round 1 - Mario runs and catches the cookie.
Round 2 - Mario grabs the cookie and rolls along with it.
Round 3 - Mario chases the rolling cookie, but then the cookie grows and chases 
Mario.
Round 4 - Mario chases the rolling cookie, but the cookie crashes into a wall 
and the cookie crashes into Mario.
Round 5 - Mario chases the cookie but Yoshi eats it.
Round 6 - Mario chases the cookie down a hill but Mario went past it.
Round 7 - Mario chases the cookie bounces off the wall and Mario jumps and 
smashes it.
Round 8 - Mario chases the cookie and the cookie fell. Mario ran on top of it 
and fell as the cookie slid away. 
Round 9 - Mario chases the cookie but it fell off the cliff. The cookie is now 
an angel and flies off.
Round 10 - Mario and Yoshi both run towards the middle to catch the cookie. 
They catch him and Mario puts up a peace sign, Yoshi sticks up both of his 
hands, and the cookie smiles.

=====================
4.2 Ending
=====================
The ending starts from the cut-scene of round 10. After that cut-scene, it will 
say All Star Cast showing Mario characters and cookies. The character and 
cookies shown are Mario, Yoshi, Princess Toadstool, Bowser, Cursor (The cursor 
you use in the game), Heart, Flower, Diamond, Check, Circle, and Yoshi's Cookie.
After they show the credits and the titles of each credit are Music, Character 
Design, Program, Director, Special Thanks, and Producer. After that they show 
Mario and Yoshi waving with the word END at the top. If you press the A button 
right now, it will go back to the title screen. If you wait for about 30 seconds
after the ending it will tell you how to play rounds 11-99.
