    2) Story
    *********************************
    
    Close your eyes and imagine...soothing sunshine accompanied by the sound of waves
    gently breaking on the shore. High above, seagulls turn lazy circles in a clear
    blue sky. This is Isle Delfino.
    
    Far from the hustle and bustle of the Mushroom Kingdom, this island resort glitters
    like a gem in the waters of a southern sea.
    
    Mario, Peach, and an entourage of Toads have come to Isle Delfino to relax and
    unwind. At least, that's their plan...but when they arrive, they find things have
    gone horribly wrong...
    
    According to the island inhabitants, the person responsible for the mess has a round
    nose, a thick mustache, and a cap...
    
    What? But...that sounds like Mario!?
    
    The islanders are saying that Mario's mess has polluted the island and caused their
    energy source, the Shine Sprites, to vanish.
    
    Now the falsely accused Mario has promised to clean up the island, but...how?
    
    Never fear! FLUDD, the latest invention from Gadd Science, Inc., can help Mario
    tidy up the island, take on baddies, and lend a nozzle in all kinds of sticky
    situations.
    
    Can Mario clean the island, capture the villian, and clear his good name? It's time
    for another Mario adventure to get started!
    
    
    P.S. Isn't Mario a jerk for not inviting Luigi to come along after he saved his
    sorry Italian butt from the ghosts in "Luigi's Mansion"? Some brother...

    4) FLUDD
    *********************************
    
    FLUDD is Mario's ally in cleaning up Delfino Island. His trusty little machine was
    created by Gadd Science, Inc. Yes, the man behind Luigi's Poltergust 3000 has also
    created the FLUDD. There are three nozzles for FLUDD, but you can only carry two
    at a time. The Squirt Nozzle is your default and you always have it. For your second,
    you can choose between the Hover Nozzle, the Turbo Nozzle and the Rocket Nozzle.
    You start with the Hover Nozzle, and will have to unlock the other two later.
    
    Hover Nozzle: Let's Mario hover for a short amount of time. Great for getting across
    in high places. You can also use it to save you from falling.
    
    Rocket Nozzle: You can use the Rocket Nozzle to shoot straight up in the air. You
    can use it to get to out of reach places.
    
    Turbo Nozzle: Use it to run and swim very quickly. You can also use it to break
    though some doors.

    6) Walkthrough
    *********************************
    
    =================================
    a) Delfino Airstrip
    =================================
    
    Mario and his crew try to land at the airstrip, but almost crash because of goop
    in the middle of the strip. The goop just so happens to look like Mario's face.
    
    Jump over the goop and get the FLUDD system on the other side. Practice with FLUDD
    by spraying the M graffiti around the area first.
    
    Run back to the goop and spray away. Rescue a Pianta from the goop and then fire
    into the center of the mess. A goopy Piranha Plant will emerge. Go into Mario Cam
    mode and aim for it's mouth when it opens. Hit it three times to win. Grab the Shine
    Sprite that appears and you'll go to a cutscene where Mario is jailed and sentenced
    to clean up Delfino Island. Next stop: Delfino Plaza.
    
    =================================
    b) Delfino Plaza
    =================================
    
    Delfino Plaza is the main hub of the game. All of the entrances to the other levels
    are here. You won't get to rest long though. The imposter Mario grabs Peach and
    hightails it across town.
    
    The imposter Mario will stop every once in a while if you get to far behind. Keep
    spraying him with FLUDD while following him. Eventually he'll fall down. Walk up
    to him and he'll vanish. You can now move on with the game.

    There is a Shine that is inside the top floor of a building. You can see it, but
    can't reach it. Look for the Pianta that's on a nearby rooftop. Stand in front of
    him so the building with the Shine is behind him. Pay him one coin to throw you
    and he'll toss you inside the building.

    Use your Turbo Nozzle to blast down the track. Stay in a straight line and jump
    at the end of each piece of track to reach the next. Let go of the Turbo when you
    reach the last piece of track so you don't fall off.
    
    *Shine Sprite 13*

    Jump on top of the boat in the middle of town when they start running again. Jump
    into the coin under the bridge to find a secret area.

    the machine and use your Hover Nozzle to reach red coins.
    
    1-3) Shoot straight up on the red area to get these three.

    that circles around the island. Hover onto the boat and ride it until it reaches
    a platform with a bunch of bananas on it. Hover to the platform and eat the bananas.
    Another boat should come from the other island. Hover onto it and ride it until
    it reaches the island. Jump off and hover onto dry land. Blast juice at the pipe
    to get rid of the forcefield. Jump in to play a secret level.
    
    You'll have to grab 8 red coins while riding a lilypad to get the Shine in this
    level. Don't fall of though, or it's instant death. If you miss a coin, just grab
    the 1-up around the middle of the track and try again.
    
    1-3) Just walk around the lilypad to get the first three.

    7) In the air on the right hand side. Side somersault and use the Hover Nozzle to
    either land back on the lilypad or on the edge of the arena.
    8) On top of the ledge at the end.
    
    *Shine Sprite 16* Must first beat the game.
    
    Look for the Pianta captain by one of the bell towers and pay him 10 coins to take
    you back to the Airstrip. Get the Turbo Nozzle and Ground Pound the red switch to
    make eight red coins appear. Get them all under the time limit to get a Shine.
    
    1) Turbo blast through the doors to get this one.

    two boats.

    fire and the water from your FLUDD will extinguish it. Hover over the spiked ones

    Eh, whatever happened to the Koopalings anyway? You'll still have your Rocket Nozzle
    as your secondary nozzle. There are five symbols that have fire on them in corners
    of the hot tub that Bowser and his son are in. You'll have to power up the rocket
    and jump to get as much air above the symbol as possible, and then Ground Pound
    it to crack it and tip the tub. You'll have to destroy all five to defeat them.
    
    Bowser's main attack is breathing fire at you. If he breathes it to your right,
    run to your left because he'll keep breathing it to your right and vice versa. Junior
    on the other hand, shoots Bullet Bills at you. As long as you keep moving, you
    shouldn't have a problem with them.
    
    After you stomp one of the symbols, it was start to break away and fall. You'll
    need to jump up the broken pieces to safety while trying not to get hit by the
    splashing water. If it touches you, you'll take damage. Destroy all five to get
    the final Shine Sprite.
    
    Congratulations! You've finished Mario's biggest adventure yet.
