-                           3.1 ZOOO                               -
====================================================================

===================================
Overview
===================================

The normal mode. ZOOO is a game where you must match up three panels of
animals. There are lucky animals which give you extra points. This mode is
endless until you die. After you die you will be given a high score that is
saved onto the game.

===================================
Tips
===================================

Since the blocks are completely random, I can't give any specific walkthrough
to the game, but I can give you strategies on the game.

- Look around on the field and try to remember where each of the
panels are.

- Every time you clear a line look at the new panels that come down.

- If you are stuck press B to use up a hint.

- For extra points get the lucky animal (displayed on the left).

- Keep an eye on the timer

- Every time you get a new level the field will be cleared, take a
moment to remember where the panels are now.

====================================================================

====================================================================

===================================
Overview
===================================

Basically the same as the normal ZOOO mode, but the timer goes much faster.
Try to get to level 100!

===================================
Tips
===================================

Not much of a difference in strategies.

- Keep an eye on the timer.

- Clear the lucky animal for bonus time.

- Look around on the field and try to remember where each of the
panels are.

- Every time you clear a line look at the new panels that come down.

- If you are stuck press B to use up a hint.

- Every time you get a new level the field will be cleared, take a
moment to remember where the panels are now.

====================================================================

===================================
Overview
===================================

This is basically exactly the same as 100 Level Up! mode, but more about time,
and seems much easier (depends on your skill).

===================================
Tips
===================================

Almost the same.

- Keep an eye on both timers.

- Clear the lucky animal for bonus time.

- Look around on the field and try to remember where each of the
panels are.

- Every time you clear a line look at the new panels that come down.

- If you are stuck press B to use up a hint.

- Every time you get a new level the field will be cleared, take a
moment to remember where the panels are now.

====================================================================

===================================
Overview
===================================

This mode is almost exactly like the normal ZOOO mode, but you must achieve
200,000 points to win.

===================================
Tips
===================================

- Look around on the field and try to remember where each of the
panels are.

- Every time you clear a line look at the new panels that come down.

====================================================================

===================================
Overview
===================================

Do many challenges and beat the game.

===================================
Quest 1
===================================

Eliminate the animals that appear on the left in the order they appear. This
quest is fairly easy.

===================================
Quest 2, 3
===================================

Clear the amount of points shown on the left before the timer runs out.

===================================
Quest 4
===================================

Capture 15 Giraffes in points.

===================================
Quest 5
===================================

----------------

Hi,
In Quest 5 "Don't reset" you have to bring the one blinking tile to the
bottom of the playfield. If you click on this blinking tile, the
playfield gets reset, so don't reset! ;)

It's hard to do and you need a lot of luck.

If you have any questions e-mail me (The link is at the bottom and

1. I don't understand your guide, what do I do!?
A: Sometimes I might have gone a little bit further, just try to go
on with the game, if you still don't know what to do, e-mail me
and I will revise the section(s).

2. Why is this FAQ so small?
A: There isn't much in this game, and the panels don't have any
special features so there's no need to put them in. The main
reason is because the game is so small, but the game is just so
much fun to play.
