                              4. Controls
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Playing The Game
================
The controls for Island Flyover are simple enough. Tilting the wii remote left
or right turns the plane left or right, and tilting it forward or backward
makes the plane go higher or lower.

Pressing A fires bullets from the front of the plane to hit balloons or i
targets.

Pressing B stops the engine and causes you to fall from the sky. Although
this may seem useless at first, it can help you land in the water tunnels.

Pressing 1 releases a flare which lights up the night sky, and also reveals
the location of Miguel's plane.

The D-Pad can be used to change the camera angle, but this sometimes
makes it more difficult to fly.

Pushing the wii remote quickly forward can give the plane a short speed
burst, allowing you to travel to Wedge Island quicker.

If you use the nunchuck controller, you can fire the bullets at balloons
with the Z button, use the C button to cut the engine, and use the control
stick to control the camera. (Thanks to Keth for pointing that out, also
stating that holding Z makes it easier to shoot the balloons!)

Aim of the Game
===============
There are three main aims to the Island Flyover mode.
1. Visit all 80 island locations ('i' targets) during day, evening, and
   night
2. Shoot and destroy all the white balloons in each time period.
3. Collect all five stamps.

i Locations
===========
These are info points about all the places of interest on the island. To
complete the Island Flyover mode, you have to visit all 80 of these at each
of the three different time periods. When you have visited them, a green
tick appears in the centre of the 'i'. To get this to appear you have to
either fly through it or shoot it with the A button.

White Balloons
==============
You also have to shoot every white balloon during each time period. Once shot,
a balloon will be a different colour the next time you play, making it easy to
see which ones you've missed.

Stamps
======
Before starting off, you can see which stamps you have collected, and get
instructions on how to collect them.

                              7. Balloon Hunting
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Introduction
============
In order to open balloon hunting, you'll need to get 20 i Locations first.

Objective
=========
You have to shoot every white balloon during each time period. Once shot,
a balloon will be a different colour the next time you play, making it easy to
see which ones you've missed.

Balloons attached to moving cars and boats are never white. In addition, all
the balloons contained in the massive balloons are other colours. So no need
to worry about them.

Tips
====
This is the only way to open the Balloonatic Stamp. In order to make it
easier, I'd recommend trying to get all of them for a particular time of day
before moving on.

A lot of the balloons are located inside the caves and tunnels, so make sure
to explore everywhere.



GameFAQs reader Craig Oakley also provided the following excellent tips:

Tips for finding balloons
=========================
- After collecting all i points and collecting enough balloons are
  collected the number remaining for each time of day will be shown   This
  number remain will only be shown after the map view screen provided at
  least 1 white balloon was burst during the flight.
- The white balloon high on the lighthouse in daytime and evening is hard
  to see and easy to miss.
- White balloons near the "Starboard Harbour : Yacht Harbour" look like
  street lamps and can be easily overlooked.
- Use down camera view to help spot balloons when flying over the city.
  All except tunnel balloons can be seen this way.
- Collect balloons in a sequence and clear one region before starting
  another., ie: wedge island and surrounds,  north ocean, ruins, beach, town,
  low lands, lake and highlands,  tunnels.
- To get the balloon 150 stamp, get as many balloons from low lands, town,
  beach and balloon collections over the lighthouse and the beach.  Do not
  spend too much time on the balloon collections, more can be collected
  quicker by strafing ground groups.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  8. Stamps
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Island Hopper
=============
Visit any 'i' point on Wedge Island. Wedge Island is the large island a
little way away from the main island, where the golf courses are located.

Pop Frenzy
==========
Pop 150 balloons in the course of one flight. This includes balloons on
planes or vehicles and small balloons released from larger ones.

Thanks to Craig Oakley for the following tip:
"To get the balloon 150 stamp, get as many balloons from low lands, town,
beach and balloon collections over the lighthouse and the beach.  Do not
spend too much time on the balloon collections, more can be collected
quicker by strafing ground groups."


Follow That Plane
=================
Follow Miguel's guide plane around the island for at least three minutes.
Watch the smoke trail left by Miguel's plane. It changes color while you
are following him. If you can't find him, try firing a flare.

Wuhu Tour Guide
===============
Collect all the 'i' points in the daytime, evening, and night. There are
80 locations, with new information for each time of day. That's 240 'i'
points in total!

Balloonatic
===========
Pop every white balloon at all times of day. Once popped, white balloons
will be a different color the next time you play. Balloons on planes or
vehicles and small balloons released from larger ones don't count for this
stamp.

                                 9. Secrets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No Balloon/i Location Flyover
=============================
Thanks to Keth for the following: "I found that by holding down the 2 button
when starting the game, it starts the game without balloons or i points, so
you can just fly around and not be concerned with that stuff."


Unlockables
===========
10 i Locations: Balloons Opened
20 i Locations: Evening Flight Opened
30 i Locations: Double Popper Opened
40 i Locations: Night Flight Opened
50 i Locations: Night lighting Opened
60 i Locations: Two-Seater Plane Opened
70 i Locations: Whale Shark Design Opened
80 i Locations: Home Away From Home Opened

Balloons
========
You can now shoot balloons using the A button.

Evening Flight
==============
You can now fly in the evening, and send up flares using the 1 button.

Double Popper
=============
The plane now shoots from under both wings.

Night Flight
============
You can now fly in the night.

Night lighting
==============
Lights up the island in the night and evening.

Two-Seater Plane
================
Opens up a narrower plane which holds two passengers. To change planes,
press 1 before takeoff. This plane is easier to fly in caves and caverns,
allowing you to get some of the trickier i Locations.

Whale Shark Design
==================
The blimp that goes around the island now has a picture of your Mii's
face on the side. A pretty useless addition.

Home Away From Home
===================
Opens up your Mii's house on the Private Island.
