0.5-About This Game
This is a strategy RPG type of game and it is really cool,but it has one
problem...It's not in english!!LOL.Overall this is a great game and it deserves
more than this.And if you don't like spoilers bear with it, because I'm gonna
put parts of the storyline into detail anyways.

The storyline of the game is NOT based on the original series but I assume it
took place after the Death-T incident and the first appearence of Yami Bakura
which is in Volume 4-7 of the YGO manga.It starts with Yugi and his friends
getting an ivitation from Kaiba, and they arrive at Kaiba Corp(I think so!)and
is greeted by Kaiba with the Millenium Ring!!!Seems that he has harnessed the
power to remove the souls of your friends and put them into small clay dolls
which are from the board game which you played with Yami Bakura before.He wants
you to accept his challenge and beat all his team of idiots which consist of a
few guys like Weevil,Rex and his brother Mokuba.Don't worry though I'll cover
that in my Walkthrough later.So let's get ready to duel!!

0.6 - Characters
Yugi Muto - A kind hearted and shy student of Domino High School.He posseses
the Millenium Puzzle which contains the powers of a pharoah who is also Yugi's
ancestor.He's the main character of the game and has a crush on Anzu/Tea.

Masaki Anzu/Tea Gardner - Yugi's best friend since childhood.She has a crush on
Yami Yugi,Yugi's alter-ego.She is trapped in the clay-doll of a Mage-Elf and
you will have to save her later onwards.

Yami Yugi - Yugi's dark half.He was a pharoah who is trapped in the puzzle
which now is in Yugi's hand.When you battle a boss,you send Yugi's soul into a
clay doll so you have control of Yami Yugi while Yugi is on the table.

Katsuya Jyounichi/Joey Wheeler - Joey is Yugi's best pal ever.He has this thing
about friendship which makes him a good person despite the fact that he likes
to fight a lot.He is trapped in the clay-doll of a Swordsman and you can obtain
him after defeating Mokuba.

Hiroto Honda/Tristan Taylor - A pretty obnoxious guy who has a serious crush on
a girl in school.He freak everytime you speak about it.He is also supports Joey
and the gang although he doesn't do much.He is trapped in a clay-doll of a
Gunsman,VERY VERY good character to use.

Leo Bakura/Ryo Bakura - A very friendly guy who posseses the Millenium Ring
which is unfortunate, because that is very bad IMO.He has an alter ego like
Yugi,Yami Bakura.But somehow,Kaiba has got hold of his Ring,but I don't know
how.He is trapped in a White Mage's clay-doll body.

Seto Kaiba - Yugi's eternal rival, after the Death-T incident in which he lost
to Exodia,he has another exciting event planned out for Yugi, this time with
the help of all Yugi's rivals, and combining three games,chess,Monster Capsule
and TTRPG.

Solomon Muto - Yugi's grandad,and he's coming along to see what Kaiba has
planned for them.It is unknowned what he is trapped in because I've never
gotten that far.I've only played untill Kaiba's table,which is really hard.And
then my save data was erased!!!So this time I will get you the information.

Other Characters - Other characters are from the series, but some don't appear
in them at all because they appeared in the original Japanese series
already.Again I suggest you to read the manga.Others are like Weevil
Underwood/Insecter Haga,Rex Raptor/Dinosaur Ryuzaki,Mokuba Kaiba,Hanasaki,Mai
Kujayaki/Mai Valentine and some others which I don't need to mention.

In Reality

D-Pad-You move of course!!
Start-Opens up the menu.

In Battle

D-Pad-Controlling your monsters,moving them..etc.
A-Same as In Reality
Start-Set your team after forming them and placing them in their places.

0.8-Menu Translation
When you hit start you get three options.


On the MC(Monster Capsule) screen you get 5 more options,the first lets you see
your monsters,the second your Stat Chips,the third the formation option where
you set your current team in battle,the fourth is to switch the places of your
monsters for better viewing and the last is to get rid of your monsters which
is only used if you have too much monsters and you need new ones.

On the stas screen you see how many capsules you have and how many Star Chips
you have won from people and it shows the friends you have rescued.

The save screen saves your screen of course.

0.9-Battle and Battle Strategies
Battling is not easy in this game if you think brawn is more powerful than
brains!Most of the time your enemy tires you out and takes you down easily, but
if you relax..you have ensured yourself victory!

The battle screen is set on fields(Mountains,Wasteland,Sea..etc.) which
sometimes gives advantages to certain monsters.There are boxes like a chess
game in which your monsters are placed on and some monsters can only attack in
some certain areas depending on their attack range.You can change the attack
range if you have the Stat Chip - Range Change.You have to roll a dice before
you can attack BTW.If the dice says 90%-100% its not good..It means attack
yourself.And 00% means critical hit.You can move ONE monster and use that
monster to only attack ONCE.So plan wisely.Monsters have only 3 types of
attacks,terrain bonus attack,normal attack and twin attack.

Here are some simple strategies:

1)Have different monsters with large range,short range and healing.
2)Put them in proper places in which they can have advantage.If the terrain is
not of your advantage reset your team formation before you battle.Note:The
terrain always changes unless you're in a boss fight which means that the
terrain is always same.
3)If two of your monsters are in ADVANTAGE which means they're focusing attack
on one monsters..i.e.their range is in contact you can have a x2 damage
depending on the situation and you have a bonus if you are in a terrain
ADVANTAGE which ensures 4x the damage.
4)If you lose a monster in battle it is gone forever,so reset if you loose an
important monster.
5)Have a monster with the attack Swords of Revealin Light which works the same
in the card game.

I hope that was helpful,if you can't win against a tough enemy you should fight
weaker ones untill you have enough star and stat chips and power up your team
as you please.Remember find a good team.

Here are a few good beginner teams:

Swift Team-
A terrain advantage monster       -i.e with high SP
A healer monster		          -i.e Holy Elf,Dig Mole
A monster with large range        -i.e Joey would do fine.
At least one monster with high AT -i.e Winged Dragon is good

Hold-up team-
A monster with Swords of Revealing Light Attack -i.e Blue Eyes White Dragon or
Winged Dragon
A monster with Magic Seal Attack			-i.e Bakura is good.
A monster which can cover a large range		-i.e Joey again!or Tristan could do!
An evolved monster					-i.e Worm which can evolve into Hercules Beetle


1.1-First Floor-Mokuba Kaiba

Boss-Mokuba Kaiba
Hard Enemies-Kokurano,Nezumi,Hanasaki,Kaiba's House Servant
Number of Enemies-6
Rare Monsters-Winged Dragon,Corroding Shark,Worm Thingy and Torrigan

You start and get 5 star chips.Then the you are asked to get your 1st monster
from the machine.The monster you get is random,I got Winged Dragon as my 1st

Note:1 monster/1 stat chip costs 1 star chip.If you get a monster you don't
like you may reset the game.Sometimes it depends on luck.

I'd advice you to level up your monster before fighting with the characters
from the SERIES.The character from the series are hard to beat so level up by
duelling some low-lives and earn yourself some star chips.Level-7-9 would do
good.Once you done that get some other monsters from the machines.Get at least
6.You can get Winged Dragon,A worm thing(Sorry,I don't know much
japanese!),Corroding Shark,Feral Imp,Holy Elf,and a couple of other monsters on
this floor.You can only get to the next floor by beating the floor boss in a
board game and by battling his monster in a TTRPG(Table Top RPG).There are
various people to battle here,some are not even tough if you leveled up as I
said.Kokurano,Nezumi and Hanasaki are here,you could battle them for decent EXP
and they're not that hard to defeat anyways.Be warned that Kokurano uses Apes
which have high attack but they're attack range are small,Four squares.Hanasaki
uses the worm thing and Nezumi uses random monsters.They are easy to beat and
give decent EXP.

When you have about 20-30 star chips spend them for some monsters or if you
want you can take on the level boss if you think you're good enough.Approach
the door which are heavily guarded by two bozo guards which will be in every
floor in the game.They won't do anything though.Get to the right-hand side of
the door and you must insert star chips in there in order to open up the door.

When you get in the door you would find the tour guide who guided you here who
is strangely also Kaiba's house servant!He is really creepy if you ask me.He
uses two apes and a thing which I don't clearly remember.Beat him with ease and
proceed to the door,there you would find Mokuba the floor boss,speak to him to
play his 'little story'.You find this in every boss fight,you have to play
through a story they set up for you in a TTRPG format and then when you finish
the story you fight their toughest monsters.

He seems confident that this time he would beat you in this game because he
said he practised with 'Big-Bro Kaiba'.Heh,this guy never learns.He has Joey
hostage BTW,and you can use Joey who
is trapped in a swordsman's body later when you rescue him.

Your piece is placed in a village.Look into the barrel and table to find a DF
Chip and a HP Chip.Wohoo!Power-ups!!It seems that the village people are
troubled...One of their little girls are missing and they think a monster
kidnapped her!!OMG!Head out of the village.(strange..he puts you in a village
with the entrance which is also the only exit!)

Enter the forest.The terrain here is mostly grassland and trees with some other
stuff like black holes too.There are random encounters when you are in story
realm.Depending on the dice thrown for every few steps you take a weak or
powerful monster would appear.Destroy these for EXP if you are forced to
fight.Head to the rightmost-bottom to find another DF chip. Head north-west to
find an AT chip.Head north-east to find an exit.Exit the forest and enter the

When you enter there will be one straight road untill you head further where
there would be two forks.Head left because the right would lead you to a dead
end and more crap battles.The terrain here is Black Hole which advantages
Zombies,Lightning and Fiend type monsters.Oh and some wasteland too with other
random stuff.Head Jackals appear a lot here and if you don't watch out the
could use the terrain advantage to kill you.

Head north to find Joey lying down beside a rock.Speak to him and save.Head to
the left forking road to get yourself a nice HP chip.Head west to find a switch
which would lead to Stat Chips and to the next area. Pull the switch to see
what you get.If you get C-you get a DF chip and if you get A you get an AT chip
I think.And if you get B you don't get anything.

Head right after that to find a SP chip.Head left to another switch.A is a HP
chip.C is an AT chip and B is nothing but a straight road to two forked
roads,which lead to another switch...Whats with all the switches Mokuba!!??A is
a DF chip.If I'm not mistaken C is a trap Chip,which gets you into a fight.(Why
that dirty little...!)

When you head up there would be two guards who are blocking your way to
Mokuba's final challenge.How do you pass?Head to the path on the right to find
a pot.Pick if up and talk to the guards they would then let you through.Beware
though!I suggest you save before this if you value all the hard work put into
your monsters levels!!Mokuba is no joke!He uses three Monsters two of them I
think are Imps which are average but with high SP and the terrain boosts their
abilities.His trump card is a thing which I think Is a Slot Machine(again..I
can't read jap!)and has HIGH range of attack.It's attack covers almost the
whole field and it has terrain advantage!Ugh!Not fair!Your monsters should be
at Level - 12-15 by now or else you could be dead meat.

And after the battle you save the little girl that was kidnapped from the
village you were at earlier.After a short conversation with Mokuba,he gives in
and hands you the clay doll containing Joey's soul.You have now rescued your
best pal.And Trust me,if you train Joey well enough he'd be your best in the
team you have,plus he won't die if you loose him in battle.When you actually
upgrade his range it actually hits almost every single enemy in front of
him!!So train him up to Level-15 or so and try to get his large range attack
with the Range Change chip.

Few things to do before heading to the second floor:
1)Get yourself a worm thing.Train it hard because it will be useful later
onwards.You'll see!
2)Get a Winged Dragon and train it if you want to.
3)Train Joey untill he is powerful enough to beat down enemies on his own.Get a
Range Change chip to power him up!
4)Get LOTS of star chips from the weaklings!!

Do these only if you want to do so.I advice you to do so because all these
things will help you on making up your perfect team and beating down the next

1.2-Second Floor-Weevil
Boss-Weevil Underwood/Insecter Haga
Hard Enemies-Mako,Souzoji,Kokurano(II) and Imori
Number of Enemies-6
Rare Monsters-Kuriboh,PumpKing,Wolf,Snowman Thing(I don't know its name),Giant
Flea,Giant Insect,Jellyfish thing(Again I dont know its name) and Great White.

Yay!!You finally made it to the second floor!!You have lots of enemies to fight
and more monsters you can get from the better machines.The monsters here are
random and the terrain is mostly forest,sea and plains.The bad thing about the
machines here is most of the time they give out the useless monsters like Great
Pa which don't really help out.So reset again if you get a useless
monster.Wolf,Torrigan,Worm and Joey are a good combination against these
fellas.They use mostly wolves,Eyemouth,Flowermen,Giant Fleas and Squid Ninja.

Mako Tsunami is here!!He uses Fortress Whale whose attack range covers the
WHOLE board!!Ugh the worst part is that he has terrain advantage because all
his monsters are sea-type and the terrain is 80% sea,10% plain,and 10%
others.His monsters can attack at large range so be careful.Try to attack his
monsters from afar because Fortress whale has a bonus if he places his other
monsters near yours.

Souzoji uses wolves ONLY.And he's pretty useless even though he has terrain
advantage.Fight him for some decent EXP.Walk around and battle the other people
if you are low on Star Chips.Imori uses some bugs like Giant Flea and Giant
insect.Be careful or you can be whopped by him.Kokurano is here again and this
time his Apes has increased their attack range and they still have that terrain
advantage like before.

So far the hardest enemy to beat here is Mako Tsunami and he gives out the most
EXP of all the enemies you have fought before this.Train up to Level-18-20 and
its try pulling out some new strategies.Strategies are important!You can trap
enemies and use double attack bonuses when you get the hang of it.When I was
here my team was Joey,Worm,Torrigan and Winged Dragon.I also randomly switch to
Corroding Shark,Holy Elf and Feral Imp as my spare team just in case one of my
monsters is lost.And please get some spare monsters before you do anything else
and put them into your formation.When you think you are ready please head to
the door where you will face this floor's boss...!!Guess who he is:He's
nerdy,geeky and LOVES insects!Yep,you guessed it right!It's Weevil!You get
Bakura if you beat him.

Alright it's time for our second TTRPG game.Don't you just love it when you
turn into a little clay doll and let your Dark-Half help you??Wow..this place
is LARGE!Most of it is only forest and sea terrain!It gives advantages to bugs
and animals BTW.

Your piece is placed in a forest.And when you get there...OMG!!You got
mugged!!Did you get some spare monsters?Yeah,those were meant to be stolen.And
because this game is sometimes unpredictable your monster might be lost
forever.Better than losing your hard earned monsters right?Head out of this
forest simply by just heading north because there is not much to do in this
forest.Head to the next area which is a village.

Look around the north-east and look into the house with the old man in it.Check
the barrel for an AT chip.After picking that up speak to ALL villagers at least
twice and head out.You can now choose which road you would pick.

Head right into a dungeon because thats what I'm covering.You could do the
forest too but I'm covering the dungeon first.The only difference between the
two paths are that in the forest you have more better enemies to fight which
means you get more EXP.Train up if you want to.I suggest Lvl-20 by now.

A-Dungeon Path
The dungeon is pretty straight-forward,you just go throught the paths until you
reach a switch.Pull it to get A-a straight path and B which you get a AT chip
but you also get a different path than A.When you head left and up,you get
another switch,A-It's a Range Change chip!!Use it immediately on Joey if you
are using him!!B-There's nothing here but a path.Once you pulled the switch
head left to find a guy,speak to him.After that head further left to find
another switch.B-you get another AT chip and A just sends you further.Just head
up to find the exit.

B-Forest Path
It's harder if you take the forest path but you get to see more things
here.Head west to find a SP chip.There are lots of insects and animals in the
forest.The toughest enemy here is Basic Insect.And trust me they are really
tough!They now appear in numbers and they attack fast with a long range.Fire
monsters like Winged Dragon and Fire Turtle work well here.They too get some
advantages and are able to use FLAME elemetal attack here.The DUMB thing is
that there are Fiend Kraken and JellyFishes here!!What are they doing
here?!Waste them if you encounter them.

Whichever path you take it leads to the same part of the forest.When you see
the lake take the North-Western path.Before heading to the exit.Talk to the
Bandit and Head left to find a SP chip.Then after that exit.

Enter the next forest to find a bandit with a Great Moth with him.However he
challenges you with to a duel!Take it easy..try to speak to him and he battles
you with his Great Moth.Take it down!If you haven't trained to around level-19
or 20.You better now...He's going to re-challenge you later with a Perfectly
Ultimate Moth!!

Head up to find Bakura lying down on the ground.Speak to him and save.Bakura
says that the Holy Elf has been kidnapped and he requests you to save the Elf
for the sake of the village.The enemies here are getting tougher!There's a new
enemy here,the Killer Needle,the Wolf and the Larvae.Don't fear the enemies
here.Try to pick up the chips if you want.But this forest is sooo irritating
that I left them out sometimes.Head left to a path and find a log there.Push it
and lets see where it goes.It's random so I can't cover it for you.I'll only
cover the path which I took.

There are three paths which the log can lead you to.I got the rightmost
path.All the paths take you to a different forest with different chips and
stuff there.But unfortunately I can't cover all of them so If anyone could do
the paths for me and email me what are there I will give you full credit for
your work.

Now,the best thing to do is to NOT waste time picking up stuff.Exit whichever
forest the path took you and please remember that you can always reset if you
lose.There are 4 chips in the path I took.One of them an AT chip,a SP chip and
the other two I didn't get.At every end of the forest of whichever path you
take,there will be the bandit again with his team of monsters.Take him out

After exiting the forest.Head to the large cocoon.Guess what it is.Yeah..It's a
Perfectly Ultimate Moth!!And the bandits are planning to sacrifice a Holy Elf
after the Cocoon if opened!How mean!The really dumb thing is...the P.U.Moth
instead of eating the Holy Elf,consumes the other bandits,including the bandit
leader himself!!OMG!You can see a short cut-scene in which the P.U.Moth emerges
from its cocoon!And then you fight it!It has two wolves as partners.Take them
down quickly.The moth can attack DIRECTLY if its in your path..i.e In front of
you!The P.U.Moth attacks with a Beam type attack which does heavy damage if its
under 50%.Once you beaten it you get decent amount of EXP and you gain a new
partner:Bakura the Priest!

Weevil complains that you could even beat him in this game..But he thinks that
this game is boring and decides to go back to playing cards.He leaves the room
in temper and you pick up Bakura as he thanks you for rescuing
him.Congratulations!You have made it to the third floor!Yahoo!

Things to do before going to the third floor:
1)Train Bakura and try to get his new range attack.He can heal I think.
2)Train the worm If you haven't.Get a few Evolution Chips if you can.
3)Grab some star chips before going to the 3rd floor and make sure your
monsters levels are high enough.Lvl-20-21 is fine.

1.3-Third Floor-Rex
Boss-Rex Raptor/Dinosaur Ryuzaki
Hard Enemies-Nezumi(II),Imori(II),Haunted Kid(?),and Kujirada
Machines-2,but one is blocked for the meantime
Number of Enemies-6
Rare Monsters-PumpKing,Red Eyes Black Dragon,Koumori Dragon,Zombie Dragon,Swamp
Battleguard,Lava Battleguard,Masaki the Legendary Swordsman,Basic
Insect,Hitotsu-Me-Giant,Larvae Moth

Congrats.You made it to the third floor.This is a big achievement you know.It's
rare for someone to reach the third floor because they usually throw out the
game before the second floor.Enough said,lets get moving.There are better
enemies here and of course better monsters to get.If you prefer using the
monsters you got since the first floor you can of course,but its better I
explain the evolution system now.

Some monsters can evolve but some can't,I have so far only discovered 3 which
can.Baby Dragon,Larvae Moth,and The Worm Thingy.Baby Dragon of course would
turn into our great Thousand Dragon,Larvae Moth can turn into Cocoon Of
Evolution,Great Moth and P.U.Moth,and The Worm Thingy can turn into Hercules
Beetle.All of them are great except that they have to be at high level in order
to evolve.I think you need to be at least level 30 to evolve.The downside is
that the levels go down after you evolve them.The stats go down too.But they
are much stronger than regular monsters.You need Evolution chips to make them
evolve.Beware of the side effects........Just Kidding!

There are new enemies to fight on the third floor,which is great.One of the
guys here is Haunted Kid(I don't know his name),and he uses PumpKing,Crawling
Dragon and lots of Fiend types.He is really tough,he has terrain advantage and
his monsters have high stats.His PumpKing and Crawling Dragon are really
irritating and really make you mad sometimes.Luckyly I trained hard and beat
them hands down.Imori is also here and he uses his same lame team of Giant
Fleas and Giant Insect.The only thing which has changed is that Imori has new
Range of attack.So does Nezumi.There's a guy here,a fat guy who seems to be
interested in Digital Pets(Digimon??),and his name is Kujirada.He uses Left and
Right Hand of Forbidden,Exodia parts.Be careful they can be a pain if you don't
be careful.

To be continued....I'll update again.Soon.

stuff.I plan on finishing the guide and adding a better contents section as
well as a ASCII art if anyone would help me with that.And you get full credit
if you do.I don't intend to delay anything so If anyone could help please do
so.I need some help translating some monster names and some part of the
storyline if anyone could help me with that.:P
