    1.0 Introduction
    ================================================================================
    
    When I first bought Wrestlemania 2000 for the Game Boy Color, I did not expect
    much of it, but it turned out to be a fun game with lots of game modes, despite
    the limited number of wrestlers. So I decided to make this small guide to help
    people out with the game, because I am sure some people want some basic
    information about the game. Anyways, enjoy my guide, and if you have any
    questions, email me.
    
    
    ================================================================================
    REVISION HISTORY
    ================================================================================
    
    V0.2 (October 7, 2000): I finally decided to update this guide. I changed the
    format around a lot to make it look a lot nicer, plus I added some new
    information. The move list on the bottom also looks a lot cleaner. Finally, the
    top of the page got a new look to it.
    
    V0.1 (May 27, 2000): First version of this guide, with basic information.
    
    
    
    ================================================================================
    2.0 My Review of the Game
    ================================================================================
    When I went to Target one day, my intentions were set on purchasing a Nintendo
    64 w/Donkey Kong 64 package, plus WWF Wrestlemania 2000. However, when I entered
    the store, my dreams were soon dashed: not only had the system not come out yet,
    but 2000 was sold out!! So then I saw a brand new copy of Wrestlemania 2000 for
    Gme Boy Color, so I bought a Game Boy Color (Pokemon Yellow package) and
    Wrestlemania 2000. Good decision, because I got the N64 the next week, and also
    had something I probably would have never gotten: a portable version of the best
    US wrestling game ever.
    
    Visuals (7/10): WWF Wrestlemania 2000 does its best to capture the TV feel of a
    WWF show. When you first start the game up, you are treated to a cool title
    screen featuring Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock. Also, the game features
    nice pics of the wrestlers. When you choose to go to a championship mode, the
    wrestlers each have their own enterances. The in game graphics are good, much
    better than Attitude. I was surprised by how good the graphics were, I wasn't
    expecting much from a WWF Game Boy game.
    
    Audio (6/10): They play the same boring song for most of the game, which I
    absolutely despise. Thankfully the song they play isn't that annoying, and also
    thankfully it isn't difficult to turn the sound off of your Game Boy Color.
    
    Gameplay/Control (7/10): The moves are simple enough to pull off, there are 32
    regular moves. You do a move by pushing a combination of the directional pad and
    a button. For instance, pushing up and B does a vertical suplex, and pushing
    down and B does a piledriver. The gameplay is very fun. There are lots of modes
    to choose from, including Gauntelt, Steel Cage, Survivor Series, and
    Championship. Gauntlet is where you have to beat a lot of wrestlers, one after
    another. Steel Cage is where you have to beat your opponent senseless enough to
    enable you to climb out of the cage. Survivor Series is a 3-on-3 match, but it
    isnt tag team. Finally, Championship mode is where you climb your way up the
    ladder, from IC Champ to WWF Champ to fighting Mr. McMahon himself in the steel
    cage. Great gameplay.
    
    Fun Factor (7/10): This game is fun, but the lack of buttons on the Game Boy pad
    hurts what could have been a very special game. The time for Game Boy Advance is
    now, and this is proof of that.
    
    
    ================================================================================
    3.0                                    Game Modes
    ================================================================================
    
    There are plenty of game play modes in WWF Wrestlemania 2000 for the Game Boy
    Color. Here is a list along with basic information about the modes.
    
    ================================================================================
    OPTIONS MENU
    ================================================================================
    Well this really doesn't count as a mode but I figured I would bring it up. Here
    you can do some basic stuff.
    
          -Difficulty: Choose between Easy, Medium, or Hard. (Default: Medium)
    
          -Background Music: Toggle the background music on or off. (Default: On)
    
          -Sound effects: Choose between the sound effects being on or off (Default:
    On)
    
          -Play Mode: There are 3 different things you can toggle here, No. Sets,
    Time Limit, and Data Clear.
    
    ================================================================================
    GAME MODES
    ================================================================================
    Now here you go, here are the gameplay modes you can choose from.
    
    TRAINING MODE: Here you can practice all your moves on a training dummy. This
    mode is fun if you want to practice moves but you cannot practice defensive
    moves and counter attacks because the opponent just stand there and allows you
    to destroy him with your own moves!
    
    CHAMPIONSHIP: Well, here your goal is to win the World Wrestling Federation
    Championship, but Vince McMahon (or Mr McMahon, if you prefer) does not want you
    to win it. Therefore, you face a lot of challenges on your way to winning the
    gold. In the end, you fight Mr. McMahon himself, usually in a steel cage match,
    but not always. I recommend using The Rock or Kane for this mode, and I usually
    do use Kane because of his strength.
    
    VERSUS MODE: Your basic one on one match, you pick a wrestler and fight against
    an opponent. However there are two different type of matches for you to choose
    from.
         CAGE MATCH: The only way you can win in a Cage Match is by climbing out of
    the ring. Do everything you can to stop your opponent from climbing out, and go
    for the victory!
         NORMAL MATCH: Everything goes in a Normal Match, and pinfalls count. No
    disqualifications, though, although there are countouts.
    
    TWO PLAYER HEAD TO HEAD MODE: In WWF Wrestlemania 2000, two players can compete
    head to head! Once in link mode, the only way to return to the one player game
    is by a soft reset.
       -While on the title screen, insert the Game Link cable into both Game Boy
    systems and press start.
       -Now select 2 Player to begin the game.
       -Select your wrestlers and the match begins!
    
    TAG TEAM MODE: Your basic tag team matches, 2 on 2. Each team is allowed one
    grappler in the ring at the same time. When your wrestler gets tired you can tag
    in your partner by heading to the ropes and pushing in the partner's direction
    while pushing B.
    
    SURVIVOR SERIES MODE: Survivor Series is composed of a series of Singles
    matches, with each team having three superstars ready to battle against the
    others. At the Wrestler Select Screen, choose the team of 3 superstars, then
    choose 3 opponents. Once all the superstars are picked you start the first
    match. When a wretsler is defeated the next wrestler on your team fights the
    other team's first wrestler. The pattern continues until one team loses all its
    wrestlers, then the other team wins.
    
    GAUNTLET MODE: Wow, this is a pretty challenging mode. You choose a wrestler
    then have to beat all 14 superstars, one after another. And you don't regain any
    health between matches, because the wrestlers keep on coming after you!

    5.0                                    Move List
    ================================================================================
    
    
    ================================================================================
    =================================BASIC CONTROLS=================================
    ================================================================================
    
    WWF Wrestlemania 2000 uses a unique Grapple System. In order to pull off all of
    the Superstar's moves, you will need to master this unique fighting system.
    
    Control Pad
    -Move Wrestler
    -Strong Grapple/Move Towards Opponent
    -Run Double Tap Left/Right
    
    Select Button
    -Special Attack: When Bio Meter is filled up to the top, press Select to perform
    a Superstar's finishing move
    
    Start Button
    -Pause the Game
    
    A Button
    -Striking Attacks
    -Grapple Moves (with Control Pad)
    
    B Button
    -Weak Grapple
    -Grapple Moves (with Control Pad)
    -Tag Up to bring in a Fresh Superstar (in tag team mode)
    
    ================================================================================
    ================================BIO RHYTHM METER================================
    ================================================================================
    
    The Bio Rhythm meter is unique in the fact that it helps determine as to when
    you can perform your wrestler's finishing move.
    
    The Bio Rhythm for each Superstar is different, and affects how quickly the
    Superstar will gain the ability to perform his Finishing move. Each Bio Rhythm
    contains peaks and valleys, depending on the strengths and weaknesses of each
    wrestler.
    
    As a match progresses, the Bio Rhythm Meter scrolls to the right. When the Gold
    Bar is completely filled up, your Superstar can perform his finishing move. If
    you do not perform the Finishing Move within a certain amount of time, the Bio
    Rhythm Meter will start over and you will have to muster the strength to perform
    the finishing move again.
