      INTRODUCTION
o---------------------o
This game was only released in Japan for the PS2 because at the time SCEA had a
grudge against 2D games outside of bundle packs at the time but it wouldn't have
been an issue today due to the PSN store. It is the sequel to the game Twinkle
Star Sprites.

o---------------------o
         GAME
o---------------------o
There are three modes: Story mode, Character mode, and Vs. Mode.

In story mode, you play as Time Buttermint and you battle your way through five
random opponents then face Mikoto in the final stage. There are funny little
cutscenes in between stages and since we don't know Japanese well, we can't
make a script out of the cutscenes in this FAQ. Sorry! :(

Character Mode is almost the same as Story mode except you can play as any of
the other characters as well. You may notice three blanks spots at the start
but complete Story Mode to unlock them.

Vs mode is self explanatory as you and another player can go head to head in an
all out battle. You need two DUal Shock controllers through to play.

       GAMEPLAY
o---------------------o

There are 5 kinds of attacks: normal, extra, death, boss, and reversal

Normal Attack: Defeated enemies are turned into fireballs that attack the
opponent

Reversal Attack: If you are attack, shoot the fireballs to send them back at
your opponent

Extra Attack: After a series of reversals, the fireballs turn into the player's
extra attack partner clones and attack the opponent in different patters that
depend on the character

Boss Attack: If the lower guage is filled and the player launches a complete
charge shot, then the partner, appears in the opponent field in an enormous
size. It can be destroyed with enough shots but its attacks are deadly.

Death: Grim Reapers randomly appear and touching them equals instant death to
the one who touches it but destroying it kills all onscreen enemies.

As you fight through waves of enemies, there is a ball that appears and if you
grab it, you'll go into fever mode. This allows you to move much faster and
build up for a boss attack.

Get your opponen't heart meter to zero and you win the match and in character
or story mode, you proceed to the next round. Lose a match and you lose a life.
Win the match and your score is tallied by the time you took to win and the
number of maximum chain hits.
