(thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org) Added Mini-Games PG - 1, 45, 43, 66, 6, 38, 54, 67, 59, 32 PT - 11, 3, 14, 5, 19, 21, 6 This guide is just from what I understand and can translate from the game. I can translate some of the Japanese which I will put in ( ) next to the name I gave the game. The kanji gives me major headaches and my dictionary doesn't have every word. I'm just trying to help out the fellow gamer here by translating the menus and giving info on the mini games. Maybe this will help you decide whether or not you want to buy the game. I'm going put in as much about the mini games as I can. This is my first FAQ/Guide. Any helpful information will be greatly appreciated. Please don't e-mail me about mini-games that are not up here yet though. I wish to find them out on my own. I will update soon! Content 1. Title Screen info 2. Point of the Game 3.

Exit - 2 - POINT OF THE GAME The game, from what I understand, is to go about and make money to buy the pocketstation games for your pocketstation and to buy additions to your soon to be "Fun Land" (just what I am calling it). You can buy things like fans, sundials, platforms, a castle and a lot more. To make money you need to play the pocketstation games. It's easier to get money in certain games and some are just more fun to play. I can try to translate with the books I have (which you will see me do with some of the game names) but that's about it. - 3 - MENU TRANSLATIONS I'm going to create my own names for some of the islands since my books do not give me a translation for the words. The island with the little brown hut with a green roof will be referred to as Goods Island (from what I made of the Kanji I came up with Present Goods Island), the island with the roller coaster on it will be called Fun island, and the island with the big screen and has the word GAME spelled out across the top of the screen will be Game Island. 1. GOODS ISLAND - Green Roof Right when you enter you are hit with a menu. Descriptions of what the menus include are below. The menu choices are: A. Pocket Notebook B. Save C. Restart Game D.

Pushing up and down allows you to scroll through the instructions. 2. Light bulb - Tells you what you did to get the stars for this particular game. 3.

There is a gameshark code that unlocks all the games, but what would be the fun in that? I have played through this far with no help at all just my reference books so I can translate. Get this game if you have a pocketstation. It's always fun to have all the games. Just hope I've helped you with the game in some way!
