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!

- 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.

This is a great game!  But you need to have a lot of patience to play through it 
without cheating.  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!
