For details regarding each, see "1 PLAYER GAME Modes" on page 6. 2 Player Game There are two modes for play by two players. For details, please see "2 PLAYER GAME Modes" on page 16. How To Play Various lessons, all teaching the basics of Tetris Attack. How To Improve More lessons, detailing advanced techniques such as Chain Reactions and Combos. (picture of the Select Option Screen) PAGE 4 ------ HOW TO PLAY Tetris Attack is a puzzle game in which you rearrange the order of a stack of panels in order to clear them. As the stack begins rising, switch two horizontally adjacent panels. If you place at least three identical panels in a row vertically or horizontally, they will disappear. If the stack of panels touches the top, the game is over. (4 pictures showing game screens of the example below) o o o ts ts t t soo oso o o o o osts --) osts --) o ts --) oots sttool sttool sttool sttool tshtls tshtls tshtls tshtls hholhh hholhh hholhh hholhh (note from me: o=Circle panels, t=Triangle panels, s=Star panels, l=Lozange panels, h=Heart panels) For example, after positioning the cursor and pressing the B Button, the panels framed by the cursor will switch places. When the three (star icon) panels align vertically, that row of panels disappears. Any panels left above fall into the space left by the eliminated row of panels.

After switching, if there is an empty space below the panel, it will fall. Panels cannot be switched vertically, only horizontally; however, by switching them wisely with empty spaces, you can often achieve the same result.. PAGE 6 ------ 1 PLAYER GAME MODES To choose from any of the five different one-player game modes, select 1 PLAYER GAME on the Select Screen. (picture of the 1 Player Game Select Screen) When playing ENDLESS, TIME TRIAL or VS. Game Modes, you must establish the levels before you start. (In VS. Mode, you establish GAME LV. only.) (picture of the Levels screen) Speed LV. This setting determines how fast the stack of panels will be raised. Game LV. This setting will change the speed of disappearing or falling panels. In the ENDLESS mode, it will also change the number of panels with which you begin. PAGE 7 ------ ENDLESS In this mode, play continues until the stack of panels reaches the top. A time progresses, the speed at which the stack rises will gradually increase. Before beginning a game, you must select a mascot. The character you select for a mascot will determine which playfield background and music you will see and hear. TIME TRIAL In this mode, you must try to score as many points as possible in two minute. You can select your favorite mascot, just like in the ENDLESS mode.

When you begin the stage, you cannot see the clear line, but it will appear as you begin to eliminate the stack. As the stages advance, the speed at which the stack is raised will increase. After each screen is completed, a password will be displayed. If you write down your password and enter it later, you can resume your game from where you left off.

To resume playing at this point, select the same mode, then choose PASSWORD. When the Password Entry Screen is displayed, enter the password. (picture of the password entry screen) (picture of Raphael the Raven's face) PAGE 9 ------ PUZZLE In this mode, you must clear all the panels on the screen with a limited number of switches. After each screen is completed, a password will be displayed. If you write down your password and enter it later, you can resume your game from where you left off. If you press the X or Y Button, you can cancel your last switch. Press them simultaneously to restart the current puzzle.

(VS. COMPUTER) The VS. game is played against an opponent. When played as a 1 PLAYER GAME, you will compete against the computer (CPU). If your opponent's stack of panels reaches the top before yours, you win. (picture of an orange frog) PAGE 11 ------- There are three ways to attack your opponent: Clear a row of Shock Panels (indicated by the ! panels), complete Chain Reactions or complete Combos. (picture of a stack of panels with shock panels) This is a Shock Panel (! iconed panel) (for details, please see "About Chain Reactions and Combos" on the following page.) (picture of a big purple block that takes all the playfield's length) Garbage Block caused by a Chain Reaction. (picture of a big purple block that is as wide as 3 panels) Garbage Block caused by doing a Combo. (picture of a big gray block that takes all the playfield's length) Shock Block caused by clearing Shock Panels. When you complete Chain Reactions or Combos, Garbage Blocks will fall onto your opponent's playfield. PAGE 12 ------- ABOUT CHAIN REACTIONS AND COMBOS It only takes three like panels placed together to make them disappear. However, should you place four or more together or should one clear cause another clear to occur, there are great advantages. Chain Reactions A Chain (chain reaction clear) happens when the panels sitting on top of a cleared row fall and are themselves cleared. Example of a x3 Chain Reaction.

(1) (2) (3) (4) (4) When the (o) falls, it too disappears. PAGE 13 ------- (picture of Kamek's hand and wand) Combos Combos (combination clears) occur when you simultaneously clear four or more panels. The rows cleared can either be all the same or multiple types of panels. Example of clearing six panels simultaneously. (2 pictures of zoomed game screens that illustrate a combo) s h s h (1) Switch and ... t thsh t thsh hlhtol --) hlthol (2) and the two rows of (h) and (l) will disappear lothst lothst simultaneously (note from me: there's a mistake thlolo thlolo here in the manual... (l) should be (t) instead!) (1) (2) (picture of Kamek's face) PAGE 14 ------- DEALING WITH GARBAGE BLOCKS You can neither clear nor move Garbage Blocks. You can only lower them by clearing or removing the panels on which these rest. So, how can you deal with Garbage Blocks? Simple, all you must do is to clear a row of panels on which the Garbage Blocks are resting. The Garbage Block will transform to panels. Once transformed, the panels can then be cleared like normal. (3 pictures of game screens that illustrates that) (note from me: the first picture is on page 14, the two others are on page 15) ++++++ ++++++ otltho (1) The Garbage Block rests on the (l). l l lts h lts h ts h (2) Clear the row of (l). olol s --) lool s --) ool s toss l toss l toss l (3) The Garbage Block transforms to ollsol ollsol ollsol panels. (1) (2) (3) (note from me: + = Garbage Block) * When you clear a Garbage Block, if a like-colored Garbage Block touches it, they will be transformed together; however, if it is a different color, it will be unaffected. Also, for those blocks that have two or more layers (widths), only the lower layer will transform. Repeat the process to transform each layer until the entire block is gone. PAGE 15 ------- (picture of the mutant pirhana plant) PAGE 16 ------- 2 PLAYER GAME MODES If you select 2 PLAYER GAME on the Select Screen, you will have two modes to choose from. (picture of the 2 player game select screen) (picture of the set level screen) After you select the game mode, you must set the levels for both players. Each player's settings can be set separately. This is useful for handicapping two players of different abilities. LV. (Setting Level) The setting changes the speed at which the panels fall and rise. It also affects the number of panels you begin with. Handicap To further allow handicapping for the TIME TRIAL Mode only, the points selected here will be added to the player's score at the end of each game. (picture of the game screen) Both Players' Levels (top center of the screen under both words Lv.)

In this mode, both players will compete to see who scores the highest in two minutes. No Garbage Blocks will drop in the TIME TRIAL Mode. VS. (VS. 2 PLAYER) In the VS. 2 PLAYER Mode, you will attack your opponent using Shock Panels, Chain Reactions or Combos. The game is played the same as the VS. 1 PLAYER Mode game. In the VS. 2 PLAYER Mode, the first player to win two games wins the match. (picture of the game screen) Player 1's Playfield (left playfield) Player 2's Playfield (right playfield) Points (Number of matches won by each player) (center screen under word Point) Both Players' Levels (center of screen under word Level) Elapsed Time (center of screen under word Time) Number of Wins This Match (4 star icons at the bottom center of screen) (picture of Hookbill Koopa) * The character you select for a mascot will determine the playfield background you will see and the music you will hear. There are no benefits or handicaps associated with any of the mascots. * To clear the Points counter, either choose a different mode or turn the POWER switch to the OFF position. PAGE 18 ------- HOW TO PLAY AND HOW TO IMPROVE Select either of these modes on the Select Screen, and I will teach you how to play. My lessons include the basics of How-To-Play, Chain Reactions, Combos and other advanced techniques. I'm a very thorough teacher, so if you pay attention, you can really improve your skills! (picture of a green Yoshi in a picture frame) OPTION MODE Using the Option Mode, you can change several options. After making any changes, press the B Button to return to the Select Screen. (picture of the Option screen) Text Type The Text Type switch has two settings, ENG and JPN. The setting ENG will display English text. Change the setting to JPN, and Japanese test will be displayed. Match Points This switch allows you to select how many games must be won to decide a VS. Mode match. Set this to either one point or two. Sound Test and Music Test Both of these options operate similarly. Use the ( and ) on the + Control Pad to select the sound effect or music track you want to listen to, then press the A Button to start it. PAGE 19 ------- Character Using this option, you can view the biographies for each of the game's characters. Use ( and ) on the + Control Pad to select a number, then press the A Button to view it. CPU Switch After selecting this option, the screen pictured below will appear. You can choose to turn on the CPU player for either player or both. The CPU player skill level can also be selected. Choose from eight levels, numbered zero through seven. The higher the number, the quicker and more skillful the CPU player will be. (picture of the CPU Switch Select screen) Mark When the Mark switch is ON, a transparency effect makes the mark less visible. (2 pictures that illustrates this. The first picture shows a transparent "4" block on the playfield where a Combo just happened. The picture is labeled "Mark ON". The second picture shows a plain "5" block on the playfield where a Combo just happened. The picture is labeled "Mark OFF") (picture of a character in the game) PAGE 20 ------- IMPORTANT: Warning: Copying of any Nintendo game is illegal and is strictly prohibited by domestic and international copyright laws.
