    Hello there, dear reader!
    
    You are now reading (the introduction to) my complete guide to Polarium Advance
    for GBA. I quite liked the first game, but I didn't really get bitten by the
    Polarium-bug, I couldn't be bothered with the more advanced puzzles. But now,
    with this GBA-sequel, I've got Polarium-fever! I'm having a lot more fun with
    this game, and the new features compared to the DS-version really add to the
    game. Since there was no guide for this game yet (probably due to the fact it
    has not yet enjoyed a US-release), I felt like writing one myself.
    So, here it is, hope it's helpful and allows you to enjoy this game even more.
    
    Cheers,
    Big Bear

    - Possible future sections:
           PASSWORDS:   If anyone sends in some interesting passwords, I may
                        open a section for custom-puzzle passwords.
           ASCII-ART:   Maybe I'll design a nice, simple ASCII for the title.
    
    
    
    
    GOAL OF THE GAME:
    
    Polarium gives you a selection of puzzles filled with black and white tiles.
    To pass the puzzle, you need to clear all the rows by making each row consist
    of the same color tile. Not all rows need to be either black or white; as long
    as each row contains tiles of a single color. This is accomplished by drawing a
    path with your cursor across the tiles; each crossed tile gets flipped to the
    opposing color. The catch: you need to draw a single line; you can't cross the
    same tile twice, nor can you stop halfway and continue a few tiles further.
    
    Polarium originated as a puzzle game for Nintendo DS. Of course it suited the
    stylus and touch-screen perfectly, needing to draw a single line without
    lifting your "pen from the paper". However, control has been perfectly fitted
    to the GBA cross-pad and A-button (or the L-button, to allow single-handed
    play). On top of that, some variety has been added to the tile-set, allowing
    for some new ways to play the same old game.
    
    
    
    
    DIFFERENCES WITH DS-VERSION:
    
    First and fore-most, is the switch from stylus control to cross-pad control.
    This works rather well and in fact, control is even tighter since you don't
    accidentily touch other tiles. Also, tracing back along your route a few steps
    works much better in the GBA version.
    
    Challenge mode is out. It was quite fun, but this is were stylus control holds
    the upper hand; moving the cursor about sluggishly with the cross-pad wouldn't
    work here.
    
    A new mode in it's place; Time Attack. Here you are presented with a number of
    puzzles to be completed as quick as possible; you are penalized with time for
    puzzles solved incompletely. High-scores are saved.
    
    New tiles: multi-tiles (count as black or white), hurdle-tiles (which block
    part of the outer rim "free zone") and solid tiles (which drop all tiles above
    after being cleared).
    
    More puzzles, 365 instead of 100.
    
    More advanced puzzle creation mode, due to the new types of tiles.
    
    No mutli-player mode! Or game-sharing, for that matter.
    
    
    
    
    CONTROLS:
    
    cross-pad: move the cursor during gameplay and make selections in menu's.
    A/L:       confirm start and end point of your route, confirm menu selections.
    B/SELECT:  cancel a started route, cancel menu selections.
    R:         zoom in/out (some puzzles are too large to fit the screen)
    START:     pause, keep pressed to display last used route (succesful or not).
    
    when in Edit mode, the following buttons are used:
    
    START:     advance to the next step in puzzle creation.
    SELECT:    return to the previous step in puzzle creation.
    cross-pad: in-/decrease puzzle height (UP/DOWN) or width (RIGHT/LEFT).
    A/B:       change tile-type
    
    
    
    
    SETTING OUT:
    
    When you first start playing the game, only the Options and Training menu's can
    be selected. The Options menu allows the following setting to be changed:
    
    Brightness:  three levels of screen brightness are available.
    BGM:         you can choose to turn background music on/off.
    Sounds:      you can choose to turn sound effects on/off.
    Tile-set:    here you can choose what the tiles should look like.*
    Cursor-set:  here you can choose what the cursor should look like.*
    Language:    choose a language from a selection of five (for the EU release).
    
    *The game starts out with four sets of tiles and cursors available, more are
    unlocked by clearing more puzzles.
    
    Before you can start with the meat of the game, you will need to pass the
    Training mode first. This explains the game and the new tiles, and let you
    practice a bit. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes. I covers the following
    subjects:
    
    Basic rules: explains the basics, play area, black and white tiles, the cursor.
    Practice basic rules: practice what you've just learned.
    Special tile: explains the new tiles added for the GBA version.
    Practice special tile: practice what you've just learned.
    Skills: explains how to deal with situations in certain puzzles.
    Practice skills: practice what you've just learned.
    Additional control: explains the use of the R-button (zoom) and START-button.
    
    Only after Training mode has been completed, will the other modes of the game
    be opened for the player. Time Attack is a race against the clock, the Stage
    menu hosts several options. Please note the Polarium Reference section only
    contains puzzles unlocked in Daily Polarium mode (so do that first!), Custom
    mode only shows puzzles created/saved/imported through Edit mode.
    
    
    
    
    HOW TO PLAY:
    
    Passing puzzles is simply a matter of flipping tiles, so each row has tiles of
    only one color (though different rows can have different colors). This is done
    by tracing a line over the tiles in the puzzle area; this is done by moving the
    cursor to the location where you wish to start your route, then pressing A/L to
    intiate drawing a route. Now move the cursor across only those tiles you want
    flipped; when you reach the end of your route, press A/L again. You only get to
    draw one route per puzzle, so you should have included all tiles that need to
    be flipped. Each single row should now exist of a single tile-color only; this
    will clear all lines and pass the puzzle.
    
    Some earlier puzzles will invite you to try and make all tiles on the field of
    a single color; this is fine for the simpler puzzles, but there's more to it.
    Most harder puzzles make you turn a certain row black and the one under it
    white, for example, my moving from a white tile to a black one below it. This
    is one of the most important basics to know! Otherwise, you will quickly toss
    this game aside. Of course, the mandatory Training mode will already have
    taught you this, in a better way than I can explain here.
    
    Next; think outside of the box! Each puzzle is surrounded by a "free" zone, one
    tile wide, where you can move about without flipping any tiles. Used often;
    note however that for this area, each square can again only be crossed once!
    
    To prevent some puzzles being to easy thanks to the surrounding free zone, a
    new tile has been introduced: the hurdle-tile. Displayed as a blue cross, the
    hurdle-tile is placed in the free zone, to prevent you crossing there. At times
    the entire free-zone is blocked by hurdle-tiles, forcing you to not use that
    area at all, or only in corners, to limit use of the free-zone.
    
    Another new edition is the Multi-tile; after your route has been finished,
    these will change color to best fit the result you've achieved. So it never
    matters whether you cross them or not. So basically, this is just an extension
    of the free-zone beyond just the single-tile border it normally is. Also can
    only be crossed once.
    
    Finally, there's the new Solid-tile. Displayed by looking to be chained in a
    row with green links, when a row of these are cleared, all tiles above drop
    down to fit in the area below. Of course, the resulting pile of tiles at the
    bottom should now make single-color lines to pass the puzzle. This forces you
    to think in two steps; how to clear these line, and make sure everything is
    properly lined up to pass the puzzle after all tiles drop down.
    
    Simply clearing a puzzle is just the first objective; the more interesting
    objectives in the game are: clearing it in as few steps (route-length) as
    possible, and using a fixed start- and end point. When replaying a cleared
    puzzle, some additional information will be displayed in the bottom right. The
    number of steps remaining, to still adhere to the maximum allowed number of
    steps, and two lightning symbols which show whether the forced start- and end
    point are being used. These same symbols are also displayed on the appropriate
    tiles, so you will already know where to start/end (which is which, doesn't
    matter). Now it's only a matter of doing so, within the steps-limit.
    
    NOTE: The step-count is actually a tile count; it's the number of tiles flipped
          in the route including the first and last tile. So starting somewhere and
          taking 4 steps, gives a total count of 5.
    
    NOTE: One would assume that using the desired start- and end points with the
          exact number of steps specified, would be the best puzzle-solution,
          meaning it can't be solved in less steps. If this were true, it would
          mean the game hasn't been properly play-tested to confirm the solutions.
          Not only have I accomplished on many occasions to use less steps outside
          of using the specified start- and end points, but even when using these
          points to start and end the route, I've often been able to clear puzzles
          in less steps.
    
    Using the proper start- and end points, OR staying within the step-limit places
    a blue star above a cleared puzzle-number. Adhering to BOTH objectives gives a
    yellow star on a green ribbon, which is of course what you should aim for with
    all the puzzles. For custom-made puzzles, the game also calculates a step-limit
    and a start- and end point (except for puzzles creating using passwords from
    Polarium for Nintendo DS).
    
    When you re-enter the last cleared (or failed puzzle), the game will show the
    route last used. Press B to make it go away and start the puzzle anew. This can
    be especially handy when you fail a puzzle, because you can see which is/are
    the tile(s) you missed. Also, when you are playing a puzzle and want to see the
    last route again, hold START for a second and a line is shown, with the route.
    
    
    
    
    DAILY POLARIUM:
    
    When first starting Daily Polarium, the game will ask you for today's date. It
    doesn't matter what you enter here; this only serves to number the puzzles for
    the next 365 days. You can of course opt to only play one puzzle a day, but
    it's to much fun to restrict yourself like this (and thankfully, it isn't a
    forced feature, like Brain Training for example, where it fits much better).
    After setting the start-date, you will start out with a (slightly) random
    selection of puzzles available, but of course the easier puzzles come earlier,
    while the hardes ones comes later on in the "year".
    
    The main screen shows you a 365-long row of puzzles, carrying the number of
    today's date. Year and months are shown in the top-left, while the top-right
    shows the sequential number of the highlighted puzzles. Above the date-number
    a star may be shown, for accomplished secondary objectives (read "HOW TO PLAY"
    for more information on these objectives). Also, at all times the next seven
    puzzles will be available for play (just so you don't get stuck on one single
    puzzle). Saturdays are blue, Sundays are red. A preview of the puzzle will be
    shown below if it has been cleared before, along with a number of light-bulbs.
    More bulbs signify a higher difficulty. Replaying a cleared puzzle, will make
    it start with the extra objectives information displayed (read "HOW TO PLAY").
    
    Puzzles cleared in Daily Polarium are unlocked in Polarium Reference. See the
    appropriate section for more information (and all puzzle-solutions!).
    
    
    
    
    EDIT MODE / CUSTOM MODE:
    
    Here, you can create your own custom puzzles or import them via passwords. I
    don't know whether the number of available save-slots for puzzles is expandable
    like the DS-version (where you unlocked save-slots along with new puzzles, up
    to a maximum of 100 slots). At the time of writing this sections, I have 80
    slots available to me, which should be more than enough!
    
    Press right/left to select a slot, press down/up to decide what you want to do
    with it. For occupied slots, a preview of the puzzle contained with in is shown
    below, along with the difficulty level displayed by a number of light-bulbs.
    Also the stars for extra objectives accomplished (read "HOW TO PLAY") are shown
    on this screen two, above the slot-number.
    
    From top to bottom:
    
    Show Password displays a password on screen for the selected puzzle, so you can
    share it with others.
    
    Password input is where you enter such a password, to fill a slot with a puzzle
    which corresponds to that password. Move the cursor to select letters, numbers
    or symbols as needed, press A to enter them or B to go back a space. Press
    START to enter a password, or SELECT to move back out of this screen. Passwords
    created by the DS-version of Polarium can be entered here as well.
    
    Create let's you enter the mode, where you can create your own puzzles.
    
    You start out with a 4x4 grid (2x2 tiles surrounded by the single-tile-wide
    free zone). You can make it higher/wider by pressing down/right, you can shrink
    it back by pressing up/left. Once you're happy with your grid-size (maximum
    size is 16x16, so 14x14 tiles plus free zone), press START to advance to the
    next step in the creation process (SELECT moves back in this mode, by the way).
    
    Move the cursor and press A/B to switch tiles from black to white and vice
    versa. Pressing A/B on a square in the free zone, turns that square into a
    hurdle-tile. After unlocking enough puzzles, you can also start to use the more
    advanced multi-tiles and solid tiles in your puzzles. When you see red marks
    over a row, that means you made each tile in that row the same color (which is
    of course not possible in a puzzle, you have to start out with each line having
    at least one of both tile colors); this needs to be fixed before you can carry
    on with the puzzle creation process.
    
    Now, you are prompted to specify a difficulty level for your puzzle, ranging
    from one to eight light-bulbs (one being easiest, eight being hardest). This is
    not something the game calculates for you, so try to choose the most fitting
    level for your puzzle.
    
    After pressing START once more, you are prompted to Test play your puzzle (this
    is recommended) or you can go straight to the Edit menu. There, you will asked
    to either "Overwrite stage" (let's you save your puzzle) or "Do not save"
    (which, ironically, doesn't save your puzzle). Puzzles that have not yet been
    succesfully playtested CAN be saved, but they won't be available to play in
    Custom mode, nor will the game supply you with the password. This is probably
    to prevent the use of un-solvable puzzles. 
    
    NOTE: The game calculates a step-limit and start- and end points for custom
          puzzles too (EXCEPT for those entered by using a DS created password).
          Experience learns that (like in the main game), the calculated steps and
          points do NOT necessarily constitute the optimal solution.
    
    After saving a puzzle, either by creating it manually or entering a password,
    you can play them in the Custom mode. This screen, again, shows puzzle numbers,
    objective stars, a preview, difficulty, just like the various other screens.
    
    
    
    
    TIME ATTACK:
    
    In this mode, you complete a fixed number of puzzles as quickly as possible,
    any high-scores are saved. Choose "Easy 10" to play 10 easy puzzles, and choose
    "Hard 5" for a sequence of 5 hard puzzles.
    
    The game-screen shows, next to the main puzzle-area, time passed since you
    started playing (increased with penalties, where applicable), the next rank you
    still stand a chance of reaching, if you stay within the specified time and 
    finally the puzzle-number (out of a total of 10 or 5) you are currently at.
    
    If you clear a puzzle incompletely, you are penalized. In easy mode, 30 seconds
    per row not cleared will be added to your time. In hard mode, penalty is 45
    seconds per row not cleared. On the one hand this is a heavy hit on the chances
    of getting a high-scores. On the other hand, it also means you won't be stuck
    on a puzzle you can't solve; in such cases, you can nearly-solve it and take
    the penalty, without getting a game over.
    
    Getting a high score adds your time in the rankings (view these from Time
    Attack menu by choosing "Ranking") and allows you to create an icon, which will
    be saved together with your score. For your icon, you get a 16x16 blank grid;
    press A to draw, press B to erase. Confirm with START.
    
    The times to beat for a high-score are as follows:
    
    Rank  Easy 10     Hard 5
    --------------------------
    1     03:00:00    05:00:00
    2     04:00:00    06:00:00
    3     05:00:00    07:00:00
    4     06:00:00    08:00:00
    5     07:00:00    09:00:00
    
    
    
    
    POLARIUM REFERENCE:
    
    In this mode, you can play puzzles cleared in Daily Polarium. These puzzles are
    organized here by category, in eight groups. Press down/up to select the group,
    press right/left to select a puzzle. Again, puzzle-numbers are shown including
    objective-star where applicable (read "HOW TO PLAY" for more information on the
    secondary objectives), a preview of the puzzle and the difficulty level which
    is measured in light-bulbs (the more there are, the harder the puzzle). Also, a
    percentage is shown next to the group-number in the top left, showing how many
    puzzles have been unlocked in that group.
    
    In this section, all puzzle-solutions will be given. Organized by eight groups,
    numbered per puzzle. The given solution is certainly not the ONLY solution, but
    it complies with the secondary objectives (see "HOW TO PLAY" for more info).
    They will all use the correct start- and end points, however several solutions
    will contain LESS (sometimes far less) steps than the asked limit. Which isn't
    a problem of course, because taking 20 steps where 23 is the limit, will still
    grant you the step-objective completed.
    
    At the start of each group will be stated the group-number, how many puzzles
    are contained in each group, what percentage of the group I've cleared so far,
    a short description of what makes this a group, a description of the background
    shown with the puzzles, and the symbol for the group (which is shown in the top
    left corner when playing a puzzle).
    
    Puzzle solutions show difficulty level (displayed as stars *** since there's
    no light bulb in ASCII...) and the step-limit stated by the puzzle. If the
    solution uses less steps, this will also be mentioned. Then first an ASCII
    representation of the clean puzzle is shown, next to which will be the
    solution. This is in the same shape, with the route shown as letters across the
    field (starting with ABC... followed by abc... for puzzles taking more than 25
    steps). Black tiles are shown as "X", white tiles as "_". The free zone will be
    shown as blank spaces, multi-tiles too to keep the visual representation of the
    puzzles as clean as possible (and multi-tiles basically ARE a free zone). The
    puzzles which incorperate solid tiles, also have real blank squares inside the
    puzzle area, which again will also be shown as blank spaces. Solid tiles will
    be displayed like regular black & white tiles, hurdle-tiles as lower-case "x".
    Start- and end point will not be shown separately in the puzzles (again, to 
    keep it clean), but of course this isn't needed since the "A" and whatever-the-
    last-letter-in-line is are on these squares thus show where they are.
    
    NOTE: Since "X" already shows what a black tile looks like, it will not be used
          for displaying the solution route. This gives a total of 50 letters to
          use forthe route (lower-case "x" will also be skipped since these are the
          hurdle-tiles). For puzzles that use MORE than 50 steps, the sequence
          will simply start over from "A" after the final "z".

    UNLOCKABLES
    
    Clearing a certain number of puzzles unlocks a few extra's. To give this game
    some color, you can obtain extra tile-sets and cursor-sets (un top of the four
    each you start out with). Also, the Edit mode will only let you use multi-tiles
    and solid tiles after you've cleared enough puzzles. Here's an overview of what
    unlocks when:
    
    clear 60 puzzles         - obtain cursor-set #5
    clear 140 puzzles        - obtain tile-set #5
    
    NOTE: Simply clearing a puzzle is sufficient to obtain unlockables; you don't
          have to clear any secondary objectives.
    
    
    
    
    F.A.Q.'s:
    
    A lot of questions here are explained further in the main sections of the
    guide above, so check the appropriate sections for more information.
    
    Q1) I can't get this game to work, I can't play/find any puzzles, what's up?
    A1) Please make sure you complete the Training Mode first (see if all items on
        the Training Mode menu are checked), only then will you be able to open the
        Time Attack and Stage menu's.
    
    Q2) OK, I opened Stage Mode, but there are only ???? in Polarium Reference!
    A2) This section only displays puzzles cleared in Daily Polarium FIRST.
    
    Q3) OK, I opened Stage Mode, but there are only ???? in Custom mode!
    A3) This section only displays puzzles which were saved AND were successfully
        play-tested in Edit mode first (whether they were created there, or
        imported through a password). 
    
    Q4) Did all that, but it still doesn't work. What now?
    A4) Are you playing the actual game or a ROM? Since the ROM is known to not
        work properly in unlocking the play-modes. I don't condone use of ROM's for
        current systems, but check around; there are save-files available which fix
        this problem.
    
    Q5) What are the light-bulbs?
    A5) They show a puzzle's difficulty; more bulbs = higher difficulty.
    
    Q6) What are the green/yellow lightning symbols? And numbered foot-steps?
    A6) These concern the extra conditions in clearing puzzles; see "HOW TO PLAY".
    
    Q7) And what are the stars above the cleared puzzle-numbers?
    A7) These show if extra conditions have been met; see "HOW TO PLAY".
    
    Q8) How do I clear my game-data?
    A8) Hold down A+B+R+L+SELECT after turning on the system. This will delete all
        puzzles cleared, any high-scores for Time Attack and any puzzles saved in
        Edit mode, whether they were created or imported. This also resets the
        start-date for Daily Polarium and having the Training cleared, since I
        haven't tried it (thanks to doomstrider for that last bit of info!).
