Just a quick note on that: No stealing, and no putting this on your website, and you'll be fine. Contact me through email or MSN. My email address and MSN ID is: ~ elite dot charizard at gmail dot com ~ /------------\ |--Controls--| \------------/ D-Pad: Move Marble Start: Pause, or start game on title screen Select: Change between one and two players on title screen A: Accellerate /---------------\ |--Walkthrough--| \---------------/ When the game starts, you are given a choice of one or two players. Hit Start to get into one player or Select and then Start for two players. Next, you input your six-character name. You can leave it blank. Move around with the D-Pad. RUB clears off a character and END confirms the name. Now you're presented with angle type. 90° is when the marble moves at angles of 90°. When you press down, the marble will come straight towards you. 45° is when the marble moves diagonally. Pressing down would send the marble down right. Now the game begins: -- LEVEL 1 -- "Practice" 60 seconds Points for passing: 1000 This is a really simple level. After all, it IS practice. Move your marble diagonally to the bottom right or bottom left or right, then again till you reach the flat part. From there, move down into the "pit". In the pit, move in a Z fashion till you reach the level exit. You should have 30-40 seconds left. - Challenge - Try to get on the supposedly unreachable platforms next to the goal (the ones with the numbers on them). -- LEVEL 2 -- "Beginner" +65 seconds (is added on to your previous remaining time, and this will be the case for every level after Practice) Points for passing: 2000 Despite the tough looks of this level, it's not too tough. Start off by going down, right, down (in a Z pattern). If you did it right, there'll be a black marble in front of you. Just ignore it and get on the slope. If you were swift enough it'll try to attack you but miss. It doesn't come down the slope. Go down one of the two upcoming slopes and then keep going down till you can't go anymore (and there's a bridge to the right of you). Don't hit the green creatures, or they'll bounce up and come down at you and eat you if you don't move out quickly. From here, there are two routes: - The Easy Way - The path through here is pretty straightforward. Go towards the slope. Go down the Z formation, then the S and then another Z, and enter the pipe. Advantage: Saves you time and effort. - The Hard Way - Enter the pipe next to the bridge. The road is bumpy here, so keep moving. Don't release the key you are pressing, or the marble will fall off. Go through the Z formation (I know there are a lot of them!) and get into the pipe. Advantage: You get 4000 points for entering the pipe. From here, just move down-left and you're at the goal! You get 2000 points for entering the aformentioned pipe. -- LEVEL 3 -- "Intermediate" +35 seconds Points for passing: 3000 Okay, now I can say we have some tough levels. The beginning is really easy, just let your marble roll through the walls. Go down the slope and take the Z shape formation. You'll come to a flat area with some green things (acid) on it. Don't go on 'em, or you will get eaten up. Go on the raised platform and.. oh no, more acid! When the coast is clear, just run down to the next raised platform in front of you. Enter the pipe. Down here, go down the Z formation (the millionth one). You have 2 routes again: - The Easy Way - Take a right, and go down the slope. Go right and then go up the slope, and stop at the flat platform. - The Hard Way - Go up, on the one block platform below the green square. The green platform is like water, waves rise up every few seconds. When there are no waves, quickly take the orange (not green, going down that is a nightmare and then it's stupid because you'll land up on the lower route). Get down the slope and stop when it is flat. Take a right and this level is finished. - Challenge - Go down the aforementioned green slope in the hard way. -- LEVEL 4 -- "Aerial" +30 seconds Points for passing: 4000 When you begin, you'll automatically go down a slope. As you fall off, take a right and then move down. While moving down, some pipes will pop out and try to suck you. Keep moving, if you stop, it will suck you in. Go right now, and you'll see another pipe. Now here's a tricky part: You go down the slope, and as you're moving down, you have to move right too, so that you get on the platform below. What you can do is move to the right and press and hold up too while moving to the right. You should fall off the slope, and when you are revived, you'll be on the aforementioned platform. Once you're on the slope, move down and onto the launch pad. You'll be launched to another platform. Roll down the Z formation avoiding the sticks, till you reach the last part, that looks like a dead-end because there's no way to get to the platform ahead Don't go down that, instead wait at the stick-pushing area before that. Can you see that platform at the right? Go to the edge of the platform and quickly move to the other side. This will take a few tries and your marble will break a few times, but once you get to it, you're good to go. I've not explained this properly, so I think we'll use an image this time: http://xs226.xs.to/xs226/08172/x2y903.png Move from point X to point Y. Once you're down there, move down, and when you're behind the other platform and can't be seen, keep moving down, and you'll come into sight. Take the visible route, and keep moving right when you can't be seen again. Eventually you'll come to this platform where there are these hand-like things. They just stall your marble a bit, so go through when the coast is clear. Go through the goal and rejoice passing through this frustrating level. - Challenge - Find a way past the aforementioned "dead-end". -- LEVEL 5 -- "Silly" +20 seconds Points for passing: 5000 Starting this level, as your time is added, you'll get a message saying "Everything you know is wrong." The significance of this message? I have no idea. In this level, you can go up slopes easier than going down, the gravity turned over. Go up the path with the slopes, and you'll reach an area with enemies. They don't harm you, and you can run over then for a +3 seconds time bonus. When you're done, go up the slope and below the red pipe. You'll be sucked in and land on a platform above. Go through the route till you reach a flat platform. Go up and you'll see some bats. Keep moving to the slope above and go up it. If one bat crashes into you the marble blows up. Once you get up, go down. Go left and up and right into the goal. - Challenge - This level is full of challenges. Find one. Surprise yourself. -- LEVEL 6 -- "Ultimate" +20 seconds Points for passing: 6000 (should be 600,000) Oh boy. This is a horrible, horrible course. Move down and get on top of that platform. It's really tough getting up the slope. Accelerate forward onto the platform ahead. Once you reach the next platform when you're pushed out of the pump, find the slope that leads down to some flashing red blocks. Watch out for the acid! Move down to the narrow platform. Get onto the blue blocks and bang into the black ball till it breaks, for 1000 points! Hey, that's the goal! You must be thinking, "oh boy, is this the ultimate race? Just a few seconds and-" Oh no, moving platforms! Okay, keep calm. When there's a platform in front of you, move on it. Keep moving, because tha platform is moving too. Accelerating is more of a hinderance here. You get a break at the corners. Once you're done, get through the two flags and rejoice! -- CONGRATS -- Welcome to the congratulations screen.
