It's also now a series of guides to Beatmania, Dance Dance Revolution and the rest of the BEMANI series of rhythm games by Konami. While not comprehensive, it should begin to answer some of the questions that you might have about the games. Please note that this FAQ only covers the GameBoy(Color) release of Beatmania GB. For a more comprehensive look at Beatmania and the rest of the BEMANI series, including things like Soundtracks (audio CDs), strategy guides, portable LCD games (like Beatmania Pocket), and much much more, please check out my longer work titled DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series FAQ. All of the information contained in this FAQ is also available in the longer, more comprehensive work titled "DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series FAQ". This document is merely a scaled down version that only pertains to the GameBoy(Color) release Beatmania GB (sequels, Playstation, WonderSwan, and arcade releases are _not_ covered, nor is Beatmania GB2). This is my final planned release for this FAQ. Please see my BEMANI series FAQ (the Compendium at gamefaqs.com) for more up-to-date BEMANI/Beatmania info. Title: Beatmania GB System: GameBoy Color/GameBoy Intro: The first Beatmania for a portable system, the GameBoy version, which is compatable with all existing GameBoy systems, features songs from the 2nd and 3rd Arcade mixes, as well as a few originals. This is the first home title to include a feature that keeps track of how many greats/good you score in a row (this first appeared in Beatmania in 4th Mix in the arcades). Also, a first in the Beatmania releases, a password system is included to open up the hidden songs in Free mode. 0.02: Stage Flow___________________________________________ __Stage Flow: Arcade:Normal: Stage 1:-----Stage 2:-----Stage 3:-----Stage 4: break-bts techno j-dance pop konamix funk dj battle bossa groove minimal techno bigbeatmix* eurobeat* Arcade:Expert: Stage 1:-----Stage 2:-----Stage 3:-----Stage 4:-----Stage 5: coming later...
