    +-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Alphabet World
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    A series of pictures show something that starts with the corresponding letters.
    The voices will say the letter, the sound it makes, and the word shown. Here
    they are:
    
    A - Apple
    B - Bowser
    C - Crazy Cat
    D - Dancing Dinosaur
    E - Elephant
    F - Funny Fish
    G - Garden Gate
    H - Hitting Hammer
    I - Icky Iggy
    J - Jiggling Jellyfish
    K - Kicking Kangaroo

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Building World
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    In the first two rooms, voices will tell you to choose the puzzle pieces that
    make specific sounds. Wake Luigi up to get the directions. If Mario chooses the
    wrong piece, it will not fall into place. Every time a piece is hit, the voices
    will tell you which one you chose and they will sound it out. Each time one is
    picked correctly, a Koopa will appear and compliment you. His compliments are:
    "You did well!"
    "Super!"
    "I like your choice!"
    "You found it!"
    "That works for me!"
    When a puzzle is completed, the lights around Luigi's box will flash and Mario
    will move on to the next room.
    
    -ROOM ONE:
    Correct order: FU, NU, CU, and RU

    In the third room, the voices aren't necessary. Wake Luigi if you want audio
    directions, but the room is very self-explanatory. There will be a picture at
    the bottom of the screen with one letter above it. You have to pick the two-
    lettered piece that would finish the word that matches the picture. There are
    only three pictures that will cycle whenever one is completed. The voices will
    sound out the letters and then say the word whenever one is correctly
    completed.
