    III.   How To Play
    
    ...............................................................................
    A.  Basic Gameplay
    
    Object
    
    The object of the game is to grab the meat off the grill and drop it on your
    plate.  You have to wait for the meat to be fully cooked before grabbing it,
    but if you wait too long it will burn.  Grabbing the meat when it is perfectly
    cooked results in a "Just Right!" that nets you double points.  You can tell
    when the meat is just right because it will expand like a balloon.  Getting
    multiple just rights in a row will earn you extra points.
    
    Controls
    
    Wiimote + Nunchuck   Extend/retract Ultra Hand (think of it like holding a pair
                         of garden shears)
    
    Control Stick        Move left/right
    A Button             Hold to grab meat, release to drop
    B or Z Button        Turn up heat on all grills to make meat cook faster
    
    Tips
    
    -  Try holding the Wiimote and Nunchuck vertically.
    -  Don't turn up the heat unless there is only one piece of meat out.
    -  The game can be difficult to get the hang of at first, especially since it
       only takes a single mistake in 1P Mode for a game over.  I recommend playing
       Vs Mode first so you can practice.
    ...............................................................................
    B.  Modes
    
    1P Mode
    
    The single player game.  The goal is to score as many points as possible.  The
    game ends when you either burn or drop a piece of meat.
    
    Vs Mode
    
    Vs Mode is the two player game.  It is similar to 1P Mode except for the
    following changes:
    
    -  Dropping/Burning food results only in lost points, not a game over.
    -  Stealing food off your opponent's grill scores you points AND deducts points
       for his or her score.
    -  90 second time limit.

    IV.    Game Review
    
    Grill-Off with Ultra Hand! for the Nintendo Wii is a simple, arcade style game
    where you have to use Ultra Hands to remove cooked meat from a grill before it
    burns.  Grill-Off with Ultra Hand! is only available as a download for Club
    Nintendo members.
    
    You play by moving the Wiimote and Nunchuk in a scissor like motion to extend
    and retract the Ultra Hand.  The game speeds up the longer you play and quickly
    becomes challenging.  The 1P Mode is VERY unforgiving; burn or drop a single
    piece of meat and it's game over.  This makes it difficult to get the hang of
    at first.
    
    The graphics are cartoony and seem like they belong on the Nintendo 64 instead
    of the Wii.  The sound effects are goofy and can get annoying and the music
    has a definite 70s vibe.
    
    It may be extremely simple but for only 80 Club Nintendo points it is 
    definitely worth the download.
    
    Pros
    
    +  Unique gameplay
    +  Only 80 coins!
    
    Cons
    
    -  Very simplistic gameplay
    -  Soundtrack sounds like bad 70s music

    Club Nintendo is the successor to My Nintendo.  If you have a My Nintendo
    account, you can just log in and upgrade it to a Club Nintendo account.
    
    You earn coins by registering 1st party Nintendo products in the Earn Coins
    section of Club Nintendo.  You will need the PIN included in the game inserts
    (usually on the back of a Nintendo Power advertisement) and will be asked to
    take a brief survey.  Wii games typically earn you 50 coins and DS games 30 
    coins, however, not all games are eligible.

    Is it worth 80 coins?
    
    I think so.  Skyward Sword it ain't but it is fun for a little while.
    
    ...............................................................................
    What the heck is an Ultra Hand anyway?
    
    Ultra Hand was a toy extending claw that was manufactured by Nintendo in the
    1960s.  It was created by legendary designer Gunpei Yokoi, best known as the
    creator of the Game Boy.
