1. Foreword
******************************************************************************

I know, I know. It would be more helpful if I made an ACTUAL, full-fledged
FAQ/Walkthrough for Golem no Maigo, maybe I will sometime, but I thought 
the information in the manual could help your understanding of the plot and
the game. The story is basic, but not predictable. Also, you never know...
you might learn a thing or two by reading the manual!

The translations of mine are pretty literal, so the slangs and multiple
meanings might go over me, since I live in America and do not communicate
with the Japan natives. Therefore, please take them lightly, especially the
story section. :) 

Here we go...

Good to see you.

Thanks for buying GOLEM NO MAIGO. Before you start the game, read the manual
and the game will be more fun. If you're a fragile (emotionally) person, 
prepare a handkerchief and begin the game.

If you happen to see the King walking around your neighborhood, and he looks
like a lost child, please aid him.

STORY
-----
A Golem got his existence from sorcery conjuring the rocks and soil. The
masters of magic has come to an agreement that there would be only one of
them, nothing more. There were two peaceful countries, Pipiria and Mabel.
The kingdom of Pipiria was composed almost entirely by plains, with some
forests at the northern tip of the land. The magic sorcerers lived in that
forest during the peace time. Mabel, south of Pipiria, had an enormous lake.
On the lake, there was a wizard composing wizardry for Mabel, up on a tall
tower. One day, Pipiria was attacked by goblins and the people of Pipiria
lived in uncertainity and fear every day ever since.

  Continue (Tsudukara) ---------------- Continue the game you started
                                          previously. The game will start from
                                          the place the auto-save saved from

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

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

TO CLEAR (a level):
-------------------
  1) The King must make to the Goal.
  2) The number of the 'walls' required must agree with the number of walls
     connecting to the red wall.

If both of those objectives are met, you clear the level.

HOW THE KING WALKS
------------------
The King walks in a fixed method.

  1. The King will always go straight ahead
  2. If the King hits something, he will turn left
  3. If the King cannot go left, he will instead go to the right
  4. If the left and the right paths is blocked, the King will turn around and
     come back (backwards)

CONNECTING WALLS
----------------
To attain the number of walls required, connect the walls to the red wall.
If there is no post between the wall, they don't count as connected. (So use
the posts!)

=======================================
Page 7
=======================================

MOVING THE WALLS
----------------
The walls force the King to walk on a certain path. The pillars will determine
how the walls shall turn/go when it is being pushed. There is an 'ordinary'
pillar (clear) and a 'turning' pillar (blue). Which pillar a wall is connected
will determine its path. If there is no walls connecting to a pillar, that 
pillar will vanish.

AN ORDINARY PILLAR                            A TURN PILLAR
------------------                            -------------
  Push Wall > One Block Ahead                   Push Wall > Turn

Pushing the connecting wall will move         Pushing the wall will cause it
              the wall one space ahead.                               to turn.


TWO OF THE SAME PILLARS                       TWO PILLARS, ONE OF EACH TYPE
-----------------------                       -----------------------------
  Push Wall > 1 Block Ahead                     Push Wall > Turn

Pushing the connecting wall will move         Pushing the wall will cause it
              the wall one space ahead.         to turn toward the Turn Pillar

=======================================
Page 8
=======================================

WHEN THE KING GETS TO THE DOOR...
---------------------------------

1. If the King faces the door directly, he will wait
2. The King will pass (ignore) the door if it goes by it by his side
3. However, if the King is stopped by a wall by the door, he will wait for a
   while before moving on

When the King is waiting, open up the door and the King will go into the goal.
Of course, if you open the door before the king gets to the spot by the door,
you don't complete the level.

IT BECOMES A RE-DO WHEN...
--------------------------
1. When the King dies
2. When the Red Wall is lost
3. When the number of the walls connecting to the red wall is not sufficient
   to exceed the required number

POSSIBLE DEATHS OF THE KING
---------------------------
1. When he gets caught between a moving wall and an another one
2. When he is pushed off-screen by a wall
3. When he makes contact with an enemy
4. When he falls into a hole

ABOUT SWITCHES
--------------
Switches are useful if you are making a stage. There are 5 switches in all.
When the 5 switches are used, it is set for extinguishation (is that even a
word? forgive me...) . For example, if you see an enemy on a certain floor,
and you lure the enemy onto a switch, the enemy will perish. Therefore, you
can access the floor and beyond without any trouble.

*Soft Reset can be used by 1P or 2P. With the power on, connect the controller
 into its port properly.
*During the middle of the game, press A+B+X+Y and Start stimulateously and the
 game will reset and return to Title Screen.
*The second controller is not included, sold separately.
*When turning on the console, the Start Button and the Triggers must be on
 their neutral positions. If they are moved at that point, the adjustment of
 the positions will screw up, and you will not be able to execute actions
 properly in the game.
