    IceEeveeFinales Intro-
    Hello, I basically created this FAQ to stop the confusion over the NES games on
    the message boards. It's becoming more and more apparent that yes one of the
    reasons people are playing Animal Crossing (AC) is just to collect the NES
    games. So, I've composed an FAQ, including known ways to receive NES games and
    descriptions about the game. So, read down further to start getting old school
    Nintendo classics.
    The URL for our FAQ at IGN.com is as follows
    The URL for our FAQ at Gamespot.com is as follows
    Note, the link for our FAQ leads to Gamefaq.com FAQ.
    The URL for our FAQ at www.neoseeker.com is as follows
    The URL for my Saharahs carpet FAQ at www.neeoseeker.com is as follows
    Logan24s Intro-
    I'm really no FAQ writer I just felt that this info was important at the moment
    and I really don't feel like constantly bumping my topics. Both Warios Woods
    and baseball can be found on the island and I'm going to explain how to get
    them in section 6.
    IceEevees Why did I create this FAQ?
    Well, the boards were being flooded with posts on how to get NES games. I
    decided to create this FAQ to help the boards out and get some known credit ;)
    This FAQ should help you with anything NES game related (for AC at least). I
    have collected this massive database of information and put it into a simple
    format and helpful FAQ.
    2. [---Back Story of FAQ---]
    As told by IceEevee
    Well, when did this all start? It’s hard to recollect my thoughts. Well I can
    give you a story of how it came to be, the merger, the news, the drama, the
    numerous updates, and the making of the now only known AC NES Game FAQ. Sure I
    am the original, but if it weren’t for some people this FAQ would have never
    -It all started one day after school. The big thing was asking about all the
    uncommon NES games on the board. Wario Woods and Baseball were just being
    discovered and no one knew of the official website giveaways yet. I, being the
    stubborn person I am, got fed up with the newbie posts about the NES games. So
    I decided, what the heck I’ll make my third FAQ. This time around, since the
    last two didn’t get posted, I decided to do a fairly good job of organization
    and make the information precise. Well, the earliest version of the FAQ I still
    have is 1.3, and let me tell you, this FAQ truly sucked. So, I began work,
    working diligently too get the FAQ done and posted. Well, it turned into an
    hour long project of 4 pages. After sending the FAQ I was rather happy about
    the results. To my surprise though, I didn’t get accepted. So, I began work on
    1.1, which I really have no information about. I don’t even know what was
    updated in 1.1. Well I didn’t send that one, and instead waited for 1.2 to be
    done. 1.2 improved on a lot, but it still needed something more. My idea, join
    with the now famed Logan24 and get him to merge his island FAQ with my NES game
    FAQ. I figured because his wasn’t being accepted yet, he would definitely want
    to put his FAQ with mine. So he did! The merger created 1.3. Well with some
    grammatical fixes and section updates this newest version of the FAQ seemed
    Gamefaqs.com material. I was wrong, humiliated again, we weren’t accepted. I
    decided that with 1.5 something new was to be added. So the journal came to be,
    which is now our most popular section (probably). After 1.5 I decided something
    big needed to be done with the FAQ. So plans for 1.6 took place, I knew if we
    wanted to be accepted 1.6 was our route. So the huge updated
    descriptions/levels/tips section came to be. Now all that was left was the
    controls, 1.8 seemed so close to our shot at Gamefaqs.com. So it came to be,
    1.8 seemed to be the one to finish the FAQ. Now, with a good FAQ we were sure
    to get accepted. We didn’t, we were bummed, so we began to look elsewhere for
    someone to host the FAQ. Our sights turned to IGN.com, we saw one FAQ which was
    horrible and was on the site, so we figured if that crap gets posted then our
    FAQ is definitely going to get posted. It did, we were very happy and decided
    that IGN.com would be the sole resource of the FAQ. Well after 1.8 nothing big
    happened till 2.1. Well, 2.1 changed the layout drastically, and I was happy
    with the results. So, after that 2.2 came around with more layout changes and
    more grammatical fixes. Well, after that I decided that we were going to make a
    website. So I began searching for domains to have a .txt website. I don’t think
    Logan was too happy about the idea, but I canned it around the release of
    version 2.5. Now, 2.6 came along, this changed the Layout to its final form,
    and fixed every known error in the FAQ. Well after 2.6 came along 2.7. Now 2.7
    added this to section to itself. So yes this is where the back story began.
    After 2.7 I decided it was time for a re-submission. So I did. The verdict? WE
    GOT ACCEPTED INTO GAMEFAQS.COM! After 2.6 grueling updates to the FAQ and many
    changes and new things added, we were in. Well now I said, it’s time to get in
    a new version and fast! So I began work on 2.8. 2.8 basically changed the
    sections around to perfection. So after 2.8 nothing happened for a bit. Then I
    decided 2.9 should basically clean up the FAQ to perfect grammer. Although it
    did that, it wasn’t much changed. After 2.9 a new website approached us,
    www.neoseeker.com. They took interest in me and the FAQ, they want to host all
    of my work. I promptly accepted thinking this is yet another way to get more
    publicity. That is when the week long effort known as 3.0 came around. 3.0 was
    to a few new sections and to change some information. But during the time 3.0
    was being worked on a new game hit www.animal-crossing.com. Yes Clu Clu Land D
    came along so we had to get that in too. Now 3.0 is the most recent version of
    the FAQ and likely one of the final full-fledged updates for the FAQ. 3.2 fixed
    some stuff…Im not sure what though. Although, 3.3 removed the rumors, polls,
    fixed the legal disclaimer, “closed” the high scores. 3.3 was the semi-final
    version of the FAQ. It will be used as a follow up to a possibly 3.5 (most
    likely final) version.
    As told by Logan
    -I noticed that WW was in the guide under the island only items, I thought it
    was a typo but I decided to check anyway. I thought if I posted a search on the
    board we could cover more ground. I told everyone about tools and for like 4
    days everyone started fishing, digging, and using the net on the island.
    Someone tried to make the islander happy by giving him furniture that he wants.
    That didn’t help nor work. Anyway Durgess finds the method that we all use
    today and he says he got WW and baseball. Obviously I didn’t believe him
    because I didn’t think baseball could be gotten on the island. He quickly
    uploaded a picture and I rushed to the GC and kept trying. I finally got WW and
    Baseball and quickly posted a FAQ on the boards. This FAQ helped many people in
    their discovery for WW, Baseball, and the other Island exclusive items. But,
    this soon ended. I decided to submit it as an FAQ to gamefaqs.com.
    Unfortunately they didn’t accept and my post on the boards containing the FAQ
    got modded for mass bumping. I figured enough people knew that if they needed
    to know how to get WW and Baseball information wouldn’t be short. But then I
    was approached by IceEeveeFinale to add my island FAQ with his NES game FAQ. I
    promptly accepted and decided this was the only way to get the FAQ posted. That
    is the end of the story, if you want the details after that (and a little
    before) check IceEevees backstory.

    i. Soccer- Soccer is being given away at www.animal-crossing.com all you need
    to do is give some personal info, your town name and name. And the site
    generates you a code for Soccer! Now all you need to do is go to Tom Nook, and
    enter the password to him. He gives it to you, almost hinting that there are
    possible other uncommon games available. This is the 3rd uncommon game to be
    known in the game.
    j. DK Jr.-Was (It isn’t on the site stop e-mailing me!) being given away at
    www.animal-crossing.com This is now the 4th uncommon game to be released to the
    public. It’s the same deal as with Soccer. So read above for the information.
    k. Clu Clu Land D- Same as Soccer and DK Jr. It was (It isn’t on the site stop
    e-mailing me!) being given away at www.animal-crossing.com. This is now the 5th
    uncommon game to be released.
    l. Donkey Kong 3- Well, the latest NES game is upon us. Yes none other then
    DK3! It is fun, fast paced, old school DK with a twist. The 6th uncommon game
    to be released. It isn’t being given away anymore (It isn’t on the site stop
    e-mailing me!)
    m. Rumors based on getting the 5 Rare NES games- Well, you have three options
    here. The first way to get these games would be to go out and buy an AR. The
    next way would be if you send your memory card to a board user named “MarioXB”
    he will put the games (including Punchout) on for free. Many board users have
    done it so I believe that it is safe. The final method which was just rumored
    is through some Series 4 E-cards. No one knows which card, how many NES games
    will be included with the cards, or which specific games will be included. All
    I know is, they are coming.
    6.) [---Descriptions/Levels/Tips/Controls---]
    You have all or maybe some of these games, but you're having trouble enjoying
    them because you aren’t that great at them. Here are some helpful tips to get
    you racking up the points.
    Note- C will mean use the control pad to move.
    1.Balloon Fight
    Tips- Listed here is the basic Balloon Functions
    Pink-Break easily and slow
    Tan-Fast and tough to catch. They chase you!
    Teal-Basically move back and forth, rather easy to break.
    A fish also can eat you! So be careful. Always remember to move slowly and try
    to be precise. It makes the game that much easier!A bonus game is included
    where balloons fly out of tubes and you pop them.
    Balloon Fight- C
    A=Repeatedly push A to float up
    B= Hold B to float up automatically
    2.Donkey Kong- Sure your Mario and Pauline is your girlfriend. But when DK
    stands in your way from getting Pauline it's going to be tough to get him to
    leave her alone!
    Level Walkthrough-
    Level 1: First off, dodge the barrels by jumping over them. Timing is
    everything on 8-bit games! Remember that. Next, make sure you time when you're
    going to climb up ladders. Use the hammers! They may slow you down, but the
    points you get are high and it makes trying to reach the top much simpler. 
    Remember you can't jump or climb with the hammer so use it wisely. Sometimes
    the barrels will fall down the ladders and sometimes the will go diagonal
    across the screen. When you reach Pauline, D.K. will take her up to the next
    Level 2: In this level there is a bouncing spring bouncing down the screen.
    Following its pattern will help you in the end of the level. In this level,
    falling from the smallest platforms will kill you, so don't rush ahead of
    yourself. First jump on the elevator going up and wait there till you reach the
    top. Jump off to the left and grab the umbrella, which only adds points to your
    score, jump on the elevator to another platform this time going down. Wait
    there until you reach the bottom. DO NOT JUMP EARLY. Follow the platforms going
    up, while watching out for the bouncing spring, you until you reach the last
    ladder. Wait  until the spring goes than climb to the top. Wait until another
    spring goes and run to where Pauline is being
    held. D.K. will take her again up to the next stage.
    Level 3:  The final showdown. There are 8 switches holding up D.K.'s platform,
    you have to step on all of them to beat him. Start off by running across the
    first two orange switches and climbing the ladder. More and more snakes will
    come after you for every switch you step on. After stepping on all of the
    orange switches D.K will fall to his doom. (Actually not really, his career
    didn't end until DK64) Mario and Pauline are together again. (Not for long
    though, Peach and Daisy eventually take her role).
    Donkey Kong- C
    Tips- I'm going to tell you this, Excitebike isn't very tough too beat. Below,
    although, are some tips that’ll come in handy when beating records. Use your
    turbo wisely, if it gets to a very fast clicking like noise use A again. Don't
    run into the back of other bikers bikes. Instead when you get just ahead of
    them, pull into their lane and they should fall off their bike. Also, try to
    land directly down with your bike, both wheels hitting at the same time. You’re
    less prone to crashing.
    Excitebike- C
    4.Clu Clu Land
    Tips-Listen I'm going to tell everyone the truth. I suck at this game, more so
    Logan loves it but I’m not asking him to finish this section. I really can not
    give you any tips except to Move in rows and constantly hit A to use the beam.
    Also look for the bonus timer, it adds more time to your total time!
    Clu Clu Land- C
    A=Shot beam
    B=Shot Beam
    5.DK jr. Math
    Tips- This is basically a multi-player game. Some tips for defeating your
    friends though are here! Make sure if the number is high to grab any number and
    race towards the multiplication sign. It's always better to have the
    multiplication sign at the foot of your part of the screen. If your number is
    low, the same applies for the addition symbol. Make sure you steal the numbers
    crucial to you and your opponent quickly. If you playing alone to learn, well
    there isn’t much to do in the game alone but to learn; and who wants to do
    DK Jr. Math- C
    B=Catch an answer
    Tips-Well considering if you've ever played pinball this is basically the same
    thing. Aim for the red holes to get to the bonus stage where you save Peach.
    Try to aim for certain things; aiming is better then aimlessly hitting.
    Pinball- C=Left flipper
    A= Right flipper
    B= Right Flipper
    Tips-Pure Tennis action, In all its 8-bit glory? Not quite, tips below should
    help you though. Try to hit the ball to the opposite direction of your
    opponent. Say he's in the back, hit it close towards the net. If he's in the
    front, hit it above his head. If he's to the left, hit it to the right. If he's
    to the right hit it to the left. Try to use your eyes correctly, things go kind
    of slow on easy and very fast on hard. It can get easy to miss the ball if you
    don’t time right.
    Tennis- C
    A=Serve hard and hard shot
    Tips-Golf, or is it? Sure it's a crappy made game and sure it's tough to get
    used too but it can be joy when played multiplayer. First off, make sure to
    choose the appropriate club for hitting the ball. Drivers for driving, sand
    wedges for sand bunks, and putter for the green. Also, don't hit very hard when
    putting, the putter is sensitive and it can send you right into OB or out of
    the green. Try your best to line up your shot (with the white line and the
    speed line.) It can get tough sometimes.
    Golf- C= Up and down to choose club. Left or right to aim your shot
    A=Swing club
    Tips-Shoot the ball! Cross it Cross it! Oh, this game is that intense. No it
    isn't, but let me tell you its very innovative. Your goal (get it goal) should
    be to drive the ball up the middle and shoot the ball away from the goalie, but
    of course in the goal. Make sure you pass when your playing difficulty levels 4
    and 5. Passing is essential to get an open shot and a quick goal.
    Soccer- C
    10. Wario's Woods
    Tips-If you don't have the game now, see below for details on how to get it. Do
    you know how to play it though if you have it? Here's the main point, you play
    as toad and you are in a forest. Toad must go through different trees and steal
    Warios loot by completing lots of puzzles. On the way Wario, Birdo, and a bunch
    of other baddies will try to stop you. The game is actually quite fun and it
    plays like Tetris and Doctor Mario except with Toad actually in the container.
    Wario Woods- C
    A=Place items or enemies in a row
    B=Place a single enemy or bomb
    11. Baseball
    Tips- Animal Crossings past time? Right, I think their past time is sending and
    receiving deliveries. Anyway if you’re into this slow paced but highly
    addicting game, read on for some tips. Teams D and R are the best. Y is average
    and the rest suck. Make sure to spice up your pitching, go from fast to medium.
    Medium to fast. And when they don’t expect it, throw a slow ball right at them
    and watch them miss. Try to not hit into the air. The outfielders are rather
    well. When you get an out, never throw the ball back in forth between bases,
    most people steal and get away with it. Final tip, try to bunt once in a while,
    it can make a difference.
    Baseball (defense)
    C=Choose ball thrown or choose base you throw ball too
    A=Pitch or throw
    B=Check the runner
    C=Move batter in batter box and choose base when running bases
    A=Pitching Swing or return to base
    B= Steal or advance to base
    12. Donkey Kong Junior
    Tips- You are DK Jr. you must save your father, DK, from Mario. This innovative
    game is probably my favorite NES game out for AC right now. Ok some tips to
    help you out. Alright, first you want to climb 2 separate vines at a time, one
    vine per hand. This lets you move quicker up vines and other climbing things.
    Also, when sliding down, you want to have both hands on one vine, oddly making
    you slide down faster. Don’t ever fall from a vine or anything, no matter how
    low it may seem! You will lose a life and also lose your temper.
    Donkey Kong Junior- C
    13. Clu Clu Land D
    Tips- Well, they finally actually made this game playable! Be gone is the hard
    enemies and short timer. I still don’t like the game, but it is better. When
    enemies are in a stage always shoot the beam. Make sure to go in column like
    lines when going for jewels. Also, don’t go near that black hole of doom! They
    named it that for a reason. If you need more tips check Clu Clu Lands section.
    Note- Go to the main title and press and hold A and B buttons on controller 1
    while holding down right, A, and B on controller 2. You will get 9 extra lives.
    Clu Clu Land-C
    A= Shoot beam

    I'm really no FAQ writer I just felt that this info was important at the moment
    and I really don't feel like constantly bumping my topics. Both Warios Woods
    and baseball can be found on the island and I'm going to explain how to get
    B.) [---The Island---]
    Okay you don't like your island and it sure as heck doesn't like you. But if
    you want your prize your going to have to work together to find it. Know your
    island well. On your island you have an island home/storage, a personally
    designed flag, and an animal who says that she wants to be an outcast from
    society for the rest of her life. Occasionally the islander will ask you for
    your stuff so she can decorate her own house, which by the way starts out with
    nothing in it. I don't think that by not giving her stuff affects your chances
    of getting better items. The island also has coconuts which can be fed to the
    islander. The Coconuts will be explained later. The coconuts grow back every 3
    C.) [---The tools---]
    Okay, there are 3 tools that can be used on the island. The Net, the fishing
    pole, and the shovel.
    The Net: Tired of catching bugs? That's okay because now you can get tired
    watching your islander catch floating treasure. Every 5-7 minutes or so, a
    treasure will fly by the island. The treasure will be flashing many different
    things so you have to choose what you're going after and time it right. The
    following items can be caught with the net: Fruit, Pitfalls, furniture,
    gyroids, and trash. Watch out for the trash because it will drop your
    islander's mood meter down a lot if it is caught. I don't have a golden net so
    it is not confirmed if NES games can be obtained this way.
    Fishing Pole: Give your islander the fishing pole, direct the islander to the
    water and he/she will start fishing. The following can happen while fishing:
    a.) If your islander catches a fish, his mood meter will go up one point and
    he'll throw it back.
    b.) If he catches an octopus his mood meter will go down one and he'll throw it
    c.) If he catches trash his mood meter will drop to as low as it can get.
    d.) If he gets a treasure chest, you will get a random carpet, wallpaper, or
    e.) If he gets furniture and your islander is happy you will get a rare island
    item. (see section 4)
    The Shovel:  This is it, if you're looking for Wario's Woods or baseball this
    is the best way to get it. Take as much furniture as you can from the main
    land, it can be anything, and bury them all on the island. Leave your golden
    shovel there too. (Yes the golden Shovel is needed.) On the game boy give your
    islander lots of fruit. Make your islander so happy that his eyes pop out.
    *kidding* You want your islander as happy as possible though. Once he's happy
    give him the shovel and go to your buried items. The islander will dig them up
    and replace them with his own gifts. If he's happy, than you will get rare
    island items in return.
    D.) [---The Treasure---]
    If you are one of the lucky ones and have found the rare island items, than
    congratulations. Here is the list of what they actually are:
    Treasure Chest
    Beach Chair
    Beach Table
    Diver Dan
    Wave Breaker
    Snow - cone machine
    Life ring
    Wario's Woods (nes)
    Baseball (nes)
    All of these items can only be found on the island and cannot be
    traded with other people.
    If you are using the net or fishing pole and your islander finds something, you
    may notice that he keeps it for himself, but if you give him a little fruit he
    may change his mind and give it to you.

    it anytime soon though.
    9.) [---Frequently Asked Questions---]
    Q. How can I contribute?
    A. Tell us information, grammatical errors, mistakes, anything that you think
    will get you on this FAQ.
    Q. I have something I want to contribute but where do I send the info too?
    A. Logan (logan2402@aol.com) or myself (nep33bb@aol.com) If you want the
    information posted faster, send it to me.
    Q. What is a Pitfall?
    A. The dreaded pitfall question. There is a whole FAQ devoted to this thing,
    but I can sum it up in about a sentence. Pitfall first off isn’t the classic
    NES video game. Don’t confuse yourself with it. Pitfall is how it sounds, a Pit
    and you Fall. Meaning, you bury the item and a villager can fall in it. Also,
    you can too. If this happens, rapidly press A to get out.
    Q. How do you open the grab bag?
    A. Make sure you’re outside first of all. Next, open the present. Then open the
    grab bag. It’s easy as that. Don’t throw away the grab bag because you won’t
    get another one.
    Q. How come it takes so long for me to get NES games?
    A. NES games are among the rarest and most difficult items to find in the game.
    If you wait for Nooks lottery or for Redd to come, then you should get an NES
    game. Those events don’t happen much, Nooks lottery is every month, and Redd
    only comes about once or twice a month. There still isn’t a guarantee that
    either of them will have NES games. Wait it out, the wait is worth it.
    Q. How many times do you update this FAQ a week?
    A. Semi-final version of the FAQ. It won’t be updated (again) until Punchout is
    Q. Can I add my FAQ with your FAQ?
    A. No.
    Q. Can I help with the actual updates of the FAQ?
    A. No, but like I said you can contribute.
    Q. Can I host your FAQ at my site?
    A. Yes, if you give credit to myself and Logan it is fine. Just e-mail us
    before you do anything.
    Q. Do I need to give credit to you and Logan definitely?
    A. Unless you want to break the copyright law then yes.
    Q. Where are the links for Soccer, DK Jr., Clu Clu Land D, and DK3?
    A. The Soccer link is still around, but the rest aren’t.
    Q. What is an NES console?
    A. An NES console is a blank NES. It is just decoration and cant hold NES games
    or play NES games. It’s acquired through Redd. (contributed by MyEmall)
    Q. So, Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, Mario Bros, and Ice Climber are in
    AC. What’s the normal way to get them, without the Action Replay?
    A. Well, there is one other method which many board users went with. If you
    send your memory card to a board user named “MarioXB” he will put the games
    (including Punchout) on for free.
    Q. What in the hell is Mario Bros.?
    A. Well, you know, it has the Mario and Luigi. Mario Bros.? No, alright here’s
    what it really is. This is the same game packaged with all the GBA Marios
    coming out. You smash up on bricks to stop spiked Koopas and then you run up to
    them and kick them. It’s fun, addicting, and fast paced.
