MOVING THROUGH THE MAZE
On each raceway, you must try to move your marble through
a 3-D maze toward the Goal Line. At first, you'll have to
search for the Goal Lines. Once you know where they are,
you'll be able to get there faster!
LOSING YOUR MARBLE
Your marble will disappear whenever it falls off the raceway
or gets captured by certain enemies. When you lose a marble,
you must wait for it to reappear before you can continue.
You have an unlimited number of marbles---but losing marbles
slows you down!
Press BUTTON A at any time to give your marble an extra burst
of speed. Turbocharging can shave seconds off of your time.
It can also help you escape enemies and traps!
ENEMIES AND TRAPS
Deadly enemies and traps await you on every raceway! Be
careful, or you'll lose your marble! [pictures of
Marble Munchers and Steelies are shown]
Be on the lookout for quicker ways to the Goal Line. For
example, if you can catch the wave on Level 3, you'll
reach the Goal Line faster!
After Level 1, any seconds leftover from the previous level
are added to your time on the next level. You also get a
Time Bonus for each leftover second!
You'll get bonus points for finding shortcuts and battling
certain enemies. Your bonus points will flash on the screen
when you earn them. For example: on Level 1, press Button A
to jump across to a tic-tac-toe grid for bonus points! Do a
little exploring to find out where you can earn bonus points.
THE HIGH ROLLERS SCREEN
For the duration of play, your name and score will appear on
the High Rollers screen if your score is high enough. You
don't have to reach the Final (6th) Goal Line to be a High
Roller---you just have to rack up a lot of points trying to
