I dedicate this to poor old Toad.  This is the one game you got to star in,
but it was the last NES game that was made so it was ignored because of hype
for the SNES.  However, I appreciate your greatness!

Also, for Cougar, Howler, Koonce, and Gracey.  I miss you, and I hope you are
living it up in the afterlife as you did in this world.  You will always be 
in my memories, and you will never be forgotten.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) The last NES game ever released, it is a great old puzzle game that 
   deserves more attention than it received.  So I present to you a FAQ for
   this great old game!  Get rid of the small enemies to stop Wario and his
   evil ways!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------Controls----------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) This section will look at the controls of the game.


D-Pad----> LEFT and RIGHT moves Toad back and forth, and even up walls in 
           his way.  UP will also move Toad up a wall as well as allow him
           to drop the Enemy/Bomb he is holding to appear above it.  DOWN
           will cause the Bombs/Enemies to fall faster as well as allow 
           Toad to kick (along with the A Button).

SELECT---> Flips through the various choices in the menu.

START----> confirms your selection, pauses/unpauses the game.

B Button-> This will pick up a single enemy from the stack as well as 
           dropping one enemy out of a stack being held at a time.  This 
           will also cause Toad to kick if he is holding DOWN.

A Button-> Picks up an entire stack of enemies and drops them.  This will 
           also cause Toad to kick if he is holding DOWN.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------Rules And Enemies-----------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

3) This section will look at how the rules of the game work, and what each
   enemy's behaviour is.


                                 o-------o
                                 | Rules |
                                 o-------o

-Three or more in a row of the same colour, provided that there is at least 
 one Bomb in the line of the same colour, the line will disappear.

-Ever Enemy must be cleared, excess Bombs do not effect the level's end.

-If you manage to get a line of five on a row or more, a diamond will appear.
 If you can get at least three in a row of that colour (one being the 
 diamond), that whole set of enemies that colour will disappear.

-Once Toad is trapped by a falling Bomb/Enemy, he loses a credit.  However, 
 if he is trapped underneath he pile, just press UP to go to the top of that 
 column.

-An credits life is obtained through every 30 Coins he collects (a maximum of
 9 credits in reserve).

-Coins are won after a round by finishing fast enough.  Every time that the
 game switches distributors (from Fairy to Wario to Fairy to Wario to etc.),
 a loss of Coins (20% of the total amount available at the beginning) will be 
 experienced.  You also have a limited time to collect the Coins when they 
 fall, so go grab them quickly before they disappear.

-Whenever Wario and Pidgit appear, they will drop Enemies as well as Bombs.

-Wario will throw his shoulder into the wall, causing the roof to fall down.
 Score a diagonal, a double (or more) removal, or a four (or more) in row to
 cause the roof to reset upwards.

-The more takeouts you score off of one Enemy removal, meaning the longer the
 chain of explosions are as well as multiple explosions will cause Birdo's 
 status bar to be reduced (allowing her and the fairy to stick around a 
 little longer) OR it will cause Wario's status bar to be increased (allowing
 him and Pidgit to disappear a little quicker).

-Game B will play identical to Game A, but Game B will have a Boss Level 
 instead of a regular level at the levels ending in 9.


                                o---------o
                                | Enemies |
                                o---------o

                           ====================
                           Fuzz & Spud & Squeak
                           ====================

These three enemies are the most commonly faced in the game, with at least one
of them being present in at over 90% of the levels.  They are the easiest 
opponents to eliminate, requiring themselves and two more of the same colour
(at least one has to be a Bomb) to rid yourself of them (diagonal, horizontal,
or vertical).


                              ==============
                              Beaker & Scram
                              ==============

These two (an Ape and a dress wearing cat) are fairly rare sightings, and 
they usually show up with a partner from the trio above.  These guys can be
a pain to eliminate as they may only be removed with a diagonal line,
requiring themselves and two more of the same colour (at least one has to be
a Bomb).


                                   ====
                                   Dovo
                                   ====

These winged-creatures are a little more common than the above Enemies, and
they are a little tougher too.  They require two blasts to get rid of them,
but after the first blast they change to a different colours (Red to White,
Blue to Cyan).  They are strong, but they still require themselves and two 
more of the same colour (at least one has to be a Bomb) to rid yourself of 
them (diagonal, horizontal, or vertical).


                                   =====
                                   Spook
                                   =====

These jar-like creatures are very similar to the above Enemies in that they
require two hits to destroy, but they have the twist of having to be hit
twice within a time limit.  After the first hit, they will flash for a 
limited time, at which point they must be blasted again to make them 
disappear (if they stop flashing, they require two hits again).  Killing 
them requires themselves and two more of the same colour (at least one has 
to be a Bomb) to rid yourself of them (diagonal, horizontal, or vertical).

---------------------------------Round Game---------------------------------

4) This section will look at the Round Game mode, covering each level's
   enemy type, strategies, and Boss Strategies for Game B.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

5) This section will look at the Time Race mode.

   You will have to choose from the following options:


                            o--------------o
                            | Round Number |
                            o--------------o

You get to choose from 2 to 5 Rounds on your challenge.


                             o------------o
                             | Difficulty |
                             o------------o

Choose between Easy, Normal, and Hard for increased challenge as you move
through the list.  Easy will be early level challenge, Normal will be the 
difficulty found in the Round Forty area, and Difficult will being at Round 
Seventies difficulty.


                          o------------------o
                          | All-Time Records |
                          o------------------o

These are the default times to beat.

to the ranking system.  Good luck on your quest for Gold!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------Strategies----------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

6) This will outline some strategies to making the game a little easier and
   your moves more effective.


a) Do not wait for the Bombs to come to you to start your movements.  This 
   especially holds true for the lower levels or when the stack is lower
   because the Bombs will take a little bit of time to fall down to your 
   area.  Move the Enemies to get the stacks arranged in an order to your
   liking, allowing for quicker elimination of the Enemies.

b) When Wario and Pidgit show up, Start to create some diagonal removals,
   even if it is all Bombs with no Enemies involved.  if this is done 
   correctly, Wario will never get the ceiling to drop more than a space or
   two at a time (allowing for easier mobility).

c) When it comes to Spooks and you get a Bomb that can harm them, hold onto
   it until another Bomb of the same colour arrives.  Use one Bomb and then
   the other Bomb to destroy the line of Enemies efficiently (no wasting
   Bombs).

d) Use your kick move, especially when holding a Bomb/Enemy overhead.  This
   will not only making transferring an object smoother, but it will also 
   save Toad some time in his travels.

e) Try to get Diamonds to appear, ESPECIALLY on the higher levels.  If you
   can get a Diamond to appear early in a big stack level, you can reduce 
   the size of the stack by so much that it will make the level infinitely
   easier.

f) If you have a Bomb that does not match any exposed Enemies, do not be 
   afraid to dig a hole for it to be positioned by an Enemy of the same
   colour.  However, remember to keep an eye on the falling Bombs/Enemies
   above to be ready to hop back up there to control the quickly falling
   objects.  Also note that this is much easier to do during Birdo's time
   and NOT Wario's time).

g) In the higher levels, do be agressive in your moevements.  Go after 
   Bombs, position them where they can be helpful when you clear the colours
   they rest on (using a diagonal take-out), and also eiliminate whole rows
   of Bomb colours that will not be of any use to you in thenear future 
   while the stack remains too high for your abilities to work with the 
   extreme height.

h) Be creative in your Enemy removals.  Always have your eyes open for ANY
   removal, whether it be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal.  If you can
   incorporate a falling Bomb into the mix, then do so to have less clutter
   on the screen.

i) When going to fight a Boss, you must remember that your main goal is to
   just survive.  If this means you have to continually remove Enemies/Bombs
   as the area fills, do so continually.  You will either make a Diamond 
   (clearing around 20% of the clutter) or the falling Enemies/Bombs will
   trigger a chain of removals, opening a large space.

j) Concentrate on organizing one chain to hurt the Boss.  If you try to be
   fancy, the multitude of falling Enemies/Bombs will usually screw your 
   plans up.  Therefore, concentrating on your one Enemy/Bomb chain to get
   one sure shot in on the Boss at a time.

k) If you have a large gap in your stack of Enemies/Bombs, and you get a 
   colour that can be used to remove some of the stack below, you will need 
   to go down the hole while holding the Bomb/Enemy to trigger the chain.
   This can be used very effectively as well in making diagonals out of the 
   top layers of the clutter through some creative organization.

l) If you know Wario is coming soon and all you need is a specific colour of
   Bomb, do not be afraid to hold DOWN and make the Bombs rain down.  This 
   will increase the chances of the Bomb colour you need of showing up, and
   it will also help Toad to finish before Wario and Pifgit show up to drop
   more enemies into the field of play (this can really prolong the ROund or
   even cause the Round to be lost).

   Great game that deserves better coverage than that is has recieved so 
   far.  I highly suggest this ignored classic to everyone, especially now
   that Animal Crossing offers it to the players!  Props to my brother for 
   getting me interested in this unbelievably fun puzzle game.
