                                    INTRODUCTION
                               =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
    
    Here I am once more, exploring new boundaries by giving you my Chu Chu 
    Rocket! Strategy Guide for the Gameboy Advance. Chu Chu Rocket! also appeared 
    on another console before, specifically, the Sega Dreamcast. There are times 
    when we are in need of a challenging yet fun and comical game to satisfy our 
    gaming. Chu Chu Rocket! is a great game at that. Iíve played the Dreamcast 
    version and itís good also. But Iím very much amazed when I played it in the 
    Gameboy Advance. Itís such a powerful handheld gaming machine and Iím 
    impressed about the processing power of it. I sometimes imagine playing a 
    Playstation game on the Gameboy Advance. Now, letís go deeper into the 
    strategies of the game.

    =====================
    Game Objectives/Rules
    =====================
    
    I. Main Goal 
    ------------
    The main goal in the game is to successfully lead the ChuChus (mice) into the 
    rocket. There will be a couple of hindrances on the way like walls, holes, 
    and most especially, the cats. You have to strategically place the arrow 
    panels (4 directions: up, down, left, right) on the map. Then when you press 
    the Start Dash (by default, itís the R Button), the ChuChus will move around 
    in the map in an orderly and straight path. When they reach a wall, they will 
    turn right. When they reach the arrow panel/s, they will follow the direction 
    the arrow panel is pointing to. Just remember that in the 1P mode, you need 
    to lead ALL ChuChus into the rocket. Not a single one should be left out. 
    
    II. Difficulty
    --------------
    To a certain degree, the puzzles will range from extremely easy to extremely 
    difficult. You really have to think of a way to place those arrow panels 
    correctly. The other thing to worry about is that the arrow panels are 
    limited. It may only need 1 arrow panel to solve the puzzle but you have to 
    figure it out yourself. 
    
    III. Winning
    ------------
    After winning, the level will be checked (denoting that you have solved it 
    already) and you may then move on to other puzzles. Just remember that you 
    may take on any puzzle. There is no particular order in doing so.
    
    =============
    Game Controls
    =============
    
    The controls are very easy. You only need the D-Pad and the 4 action buttons 
    of the Gameboy Advanced.
    
    A Button - Ok/Accept/Action Button
    B Button - Go Back
    L Button - Cancel Button
    R Button - Start/Dash
    Start Button - Pause (Resume/Exit)

                                  1 PLAYER PUZZLE
                             =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    In this game mode, your goal is to correctly place the arrow panels in order 
    to successfully guide the mice towards the rocket safely. Youíll encounter 
    cats and you have to think carefully (and compute the timing) about placing 
    the arrow panels. Here are the puzzles and their solutions/strategies.
    
    In addition to the normal puzzles (those that are included in the game), 
    there are also puzzles that have been created (custom puzzles) that were 
    created by different persons on the Dreamcast Version. They are tough and 
    there are lots and lots of them. Youíll definitely have to play very long. 
    Let me remind you now that there are hundreds of puzzles here, therefore the 
    guide might be longer than usual. There are 2,525 puzzles all in all just 
    here in the 1 Player Puzzle mode. Here we go! Letís start with the Normal 
    Puzzles. Iíll put the solution I personally did for the puzzles. Take note 
    also that is it very much possible that more than 1 strategy can be applied 
    for a single puzzle.

    H = Holes

                                   NORMAL PUZZLES
                                   ==============
    
    These puzzles are fairly easy. They might get a little tricky sometimes but 
    these wonít be categorized as difficult puzzles. After completing all 25 
    puzzles, youíll see the ending credits.

                                    STRATEGIES
                                -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    
    1. Study the map very well, first hand, before placing the arrows. But you 
    can try a new arrow placement if you made a mistake.
    
    2. For a more efficient arrow placement in maps with cats. Study the movement 
    pattern of the cats and place the arrow correctly so that the cats misses the 
    mice. 
    
    3. If youíre having trouble with cats, lead them off by placing arrow panels 
    right in front of their paths. These arrows tend to disappear after being 
    touched by cats.
    
    4. Always remember that the mouse will turn right on walls. Use this for 
    combinations that will lead to the rockets.
    
    5. If there are more than 1 rocket in a map, donít worry about leading a 
    mouse in each of them. Leading all the mice into 1 rocket is enough to win 
    the level.

    - Thanks to Sega and Sonic Team for bringing us one of the best puzzle games 
    around as well as porting it to the Nintendo Gameboy Advance. Itís very 
    challenging and so immersive. 
    
    - Thanks also to Nintendo for such an excellent handheld gaming device. The 
    Gameboy Advance redefines what handheld gaming should be, and thus, it rocks!

    without anyone using it. Thanks very much!
