    A. - Gameplay
    _____________
    
    The main objective of Geometry Wars is to survive an onslaught of as many
    enemies as you can handle. You are given a set amount of lives and bombs
    each time you play. At any time, your bombs can be used to clear the screen
    of enemies. For the first 3 seconds into a life, your craft is protected
    by a shield. After that, if anything touches your craft, you lose a life.
    Once you run out of lives, the battle/game ends.
    
    For more info, go to the respective section of each game.

    D. - Geoms
    __________
    
    In Galaxies, nearly every enemy destroyed leaves behind small yellow items
    called Geoms. These are the currency used in the game, so obviously you
    want to pick these up.
    
    There are four types of Geoms:
    
    Type          - Geoms
    Triangle      -  10
    Diamond       -  20
    Cross (Small) -  50
    Cross (Large) - 100
    
    For each Geom you collect, the following will occur:
    - Your Geom total for the current battle will in crease by the above amount
    - Your score multiplier will increase by one (until it maxes out at x150)
    - At 5,000 Geoms, an extra life is earned
    - At 7,500 Geoms, an extra bomb is earned
    - Your main attack changes after a certain amount of Geoms are found.
    
    ______________
    
    E. - The Drone
    ______________
    
    New to Galaxies, the drone is an AI-controlled craft that helps you in
    the game. Before starting a planet, the drone can be fitted with a
    behavior. At the end of a battle, the drone will gain XP, experience
    points, for the behavior it used. For every 100 XP gained, the behavior
    will level up and become more powerful. The behaviors start at level 1
    (with 10 XP already given) and max out at level 10.
    
    Some behaviors (like Attack and Defend) are active for the entire battle,
    while others (like Turret and Bait) take time to activate. For these,
    the drone will flash red just before turning its ability on or off.
    
    There are 8 behaviors, 7 of which must be bought with Geoms
    (Amount needed to buy behavior indicated in parenthesis):
    
    - Type     (Price) - Description
    
    - Attack    (Free) - The drone follows your ship and shoots in the same
                         direction as you do.
                       - On Level Up: firepower, accuracy, and
                         spread of fire increase.
    - Defense  (3,500) - The drone stays behind the ship and shoots behind you.
                         At first it will ONLY shoot backward...
                       - On Level Up: ...but the arc it covers, as well as the
                         firepower, will increase.
    - Collect (14,500) - The drone does NOT shoot, but instead wanders around
                         the grid and picks up stray Geoms.
                       - On Level Up: Faster movement and turning.
    - Snipe   (28,000) - The drone uses a beam to pick off targets, usually
                         killing multi-hit enemies in one shot.
                       - On Level Up: Improved targeting system.
    - Sweep   (57,000) - The drone does NOT shoot, but instead circles around
                         the ship to kill any nearby enemies.
                       - On Level Up: smaller orbit radius, increased speed.
    - Ram     (90,000) - Basically acts just like Sweep, but instead of
                         circling the ship, the drone wanders the grid and
                         runs into nearby enemies, killing them instantly.
                       - On Level Up: the drone will go farther away from
                         the ship and become prone to attacking tougher enemies.
    - Turret (150,000) - The drone will shoot from a fixed position, aiming 
                         in a circle around itself to a fixed distance away
                         (though the shots still travel completely across the
                         grid). When not in use, it copies the Attack behavior.
                       - On Level Up: Increased target distance, firepower,
                         duration and length.
    - Bait   (300,000) - The drone moves away from the ship and attracts enemies,
                         making it easier to escape from enemies.
                       - On Level Up: Increased frequency and length.

      quickly, but also to evade your bullets! The best strategy
      for these is to back them into a corner.

      they don't evade. Instead, they split into two Tiny Splitters when hit.

    O (Imagine as big as above pictures)
    
    - Gravity Well: These guys move slow, but they take multiple hits

      repelling your bullets. If too many enemies are sucked up...

      they hit you.

      ram you at high speed, using a shield to block your shots. Hit them
      from the side or behind to kill them.

    - Mutator / Mutated: Trust me, you'll know them when you see them.
      Anyway, The Mutator (the blue ones) will attack OTHER enemies and
      change them into Mutateds (The red ones). Both move quite fast
      compared to other enemies.
    
      Mutators will NOT hurt you if you touch them, and they take
      multiple hits to defeat.
    
    --------------
    
    (O) (See Gravity Well)
    
    - UFO / NUFO: These guys simply fly around. That's it. There are two
      types: NUFOs and UFOs. The NUFOs are yellow and travel in groups.
      They usually come in from outside the grid. If you see these,
      SHOOT THEM IMMEDIATELY! They're not a threat, but they give massive
      amounts of points. The red UFOs are very rare and are worth even more
      points.
    
      Though I haven't actually tried this yet, I've been told UFOs are
      harmless on your ship.
    
    --------------
    
    (Imagine a circle inside a second circle here)
    
    - Generator: This (obviously) generates enemies to add into the grid.
      As far as I know the enemy can be any class type except Gravity Well,
      Proton, Snake, or Repulsor. It can only be destroyed when it turns blue.

    These enemies appear only on their respective planets and the Var- planets.
    
    
    
    
    (Imagine a Generator inside of a third circle here)
    
    - Black Hole: Basically an indestructible, more powerful gravity well
      (only it doesn't explode and make Protons). These appear on the
      Orb- planets.
    
    --------------
    
    - Asteroids: Take an enemy, make it bigger, and turn it orange, and
      you get these guys. They split into two smaller asteroids when
      defeated, and the smaller asteroids produce multiple copies of the
      enemy they are shaped as. These appear on the Mas- planets.
    
    To be precise, they can be in the form of the following:
    
    -Wanderer
    -Grunt
    -Weaver
    -Spinner
    -Repulsor
    -Neutron
    -Mayfly

      enemies from one to the other. You gain a temporary shield upon
      exiting the Wormhole, and you must wait for it to disappear
      before re-entering the Wormhole. They appear on the Por- planets

      on the grid. These mines are activated when touched by your craft
      and can be used to destroy enemies from far away. Also, as each
      enemy is killed by a mine, the score jumps dramatically. Mine
      Layers appear on the Min- planets.

    High scores are important for this game, since medals earn you bonus Geoms
    (More on that later). Here are the point values for each enemy with x1
    and x150 multipliers.
    
    Note that Black Holes, Mine Layers, Flippers, and Wormholes cannot
    be destroyed.

    3 - Galaxies
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Before I go any further, please note that what I refer to as "galaxies"
    are called solar systems in the game.
    
    The main objective of Galaxies is to survive an onslaught of as many enemies
    as you can handle. The number of lives and bombs you start with is
    determined by the current planet. An extra life is gained for every 5,000
    Geoms, and an extra bomb is given at 7,500 Geoms. 
    
    Galaxies consists of 64 planets spread across 10 galaxies (74 planets on 11
    galaxies if you include multiplayer). Each planet has high score
    requirements to reach bronze, silver, and gold medals. These medals,
    when first awarded, give an additional amount of Geoms.
    
    Each galaxy (Except for Alpha) must be bought with Geoms to reach its
    planets, and each planet (with the exception of the first one or two,
    and the Alpha, Lambda, & Multiplayer planets) must also be bought in order
    to be played on.
    
    _________________________________________________
    
    A. The Planets (And Maybe... How They Were Named)
    _________________________________________________
    
    In Galaxies, there are 13 types of planets that can be found in the game.
    Their names are displayed as (Planet Type)(Number).
    ____________
    
    Planet Types
    ____________
    
    Bear in mind that the parenthesis are just my thought on what they stand for.
    
    - Trainer / Cla(ssic): These planets act just like Retro Evolved; no tricks,
      just kill the enemies.
    - Mas(sive): These planets use primarily Asteroids, but are otherwise
      just like Cla(ssic)
    - Sur(vival): You only get one life here, so don't blow it.
    - Orb(it): These have a Black Hole in the center, and the enemies travel
      in a spiral.
    - Roc(k): Meteors are the main enemies here.
    - Min(e): Mine Layers are always seen here, along with unusually high medal
      scores...
    - Fli(pper): As the name suggests, Flippers dwell on these planets.
    - Los(t?): These are generally small planets with small corridors.
    - Bat(tle): I think this really means battle, but I prefer bat-**** crazy.
      These planets have enemies come in large packs (usually on one side of
      the screen), and they move much faster than usual.
    - Var(iety): The miscellaneous planets; they can have any layout and enemies
      (even ones that only appear on other planets).
    
    The following 3 planet types are NOT in multi player Galaxies:
    
    - Vir(us): These planets have the Cell Mass enemy on them.
    - Zoo: These planets are almost like a maze; small corridors are usually
      found here.
    - Por(tal): A pair of wormholes appear on this type of planet.
    
    _____________
    
    Number System
    _____________
    
    Each planet ends with a set of letters that the determines what number planet
    it is.
    
    The number system is as follows:
    Ending  = number
    -zeroth = 0
    -eis    = 1
    -duo    = 2
    -tris   = 3
    -tetra  = 4
    -pente  = 5
    -hex    = 6
    -hepta  = 7
    -ama    = ??? (Only used for multiplayer)
    
    In other words, "Clatetra" would mean Cla(ssic) #4.
    
    ______________________
    
    B. - Medal Score Table
    ______________________
    
    Now for the main part... the score table. This shows what score you need
    to get bronze, silver, and gold medals on each planet.
    
    Each planet will be shown the following way:
    -Planet     (Price)    Bronze       Silver             Gold
    
    Any blanks on these charts are areas I have not reached yet; they will
    be updated soon.

    4 - Retro Evolved
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    An exact port of the original Xbox 360 game, your job is to destroy as many
    enemies as you can before running out of lives. You start out with 3 lives
    and 3 bombs. An extra life is given for every 75,000 points, and an extra
    bomb is given every 100,000 points.
    
    The score multiplier is increased after ever so many enemies are destroyed
    (I don't know the exact details yet).
    
    Only the classic enemies appear in Retro Evolved.
    
    Sadly (sort of), only Evolved mode appears here, no Retro version...

    5 - F.A.Q.
    _____________________________________________________________________________
    
    Okay, I haven't gotten many questions yet, but these have been asked.
    
    Q: What levels/game can be downloaded to the Nintendo DS if I get the
    Wii version Only?
    
    A: You can download the Evolved mode of Retro Evolved to the DS. 
    
    Q: Does it matter whether or not you have the bonus DS levels to get
    a higher score on the leader board, or is it ranked per galaxy/stage?
    
    A: There are two separate leaderboards: one for individual planets
    and one for your total score across all the planets. The boards also
    have daily and all-time top scores.
    
    As for the extra planets... since one of the planets has a 1 billion score
    for gold, it would definitely help. 
    
    Q: Is there online multiplayer?
    
    A: No, the leaderboards are the only online function.
    
    Q: Out of Brawl, Geo-Wars, Battalion Wars 2, Pokemon Battle Revolution
    and Metroid Prime 3 corruption, what order would you recommend them?
    
    A: Since I haven't played SSBB (duh), PBR or BW2, and going on experience
    from previous games, I'd say:
    
    Brawl, Metroid, Geo-Wars, Pokemon, and Batallion Wars 2
    
    UPDATE: This isn't quite how I wanted this to show up. Personally,
    I'd recommend ALL of those games about the same (maybe except for BW2).
    The order is what I'd pick if I HAD to pick an order.
    
    Q: Do I Get anything for unlocking all gold medals?
    
    A: I don't know yet, since I don't even have a medal on every planet yet.
    I'll know soon enough, though...
    
    Q: I have a question that's not here. What do I do?
    
    A: See "7 - Contact Me" to find out where to send the question.
