Thanks To... <> <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> 1. Introduction <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> This was Nintendo's attempt at making an educational game fun. They mixed together history and geography with action-adventure gaming. It's a good idea, and might be able to be used as a teaching device, but it's lacking in a few areas, mainly the actually making it fun part. I was bored to tears by the second set of stages, and wanted to cry by the third. However, I stuck with it, and tried to finish it. I couldn't. So I let IceFlamethrower have a run with it. But now that he retired from FAQ writing, looks like its up to me to finish the entire thing. So behold the guide that will get you through this game as fast as possible, so you can tell your friends you've beaten ALL the Mario games, and watch them murmur about how much of a nerd you are. 2. Overview And Controls <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> It seems Mario was sucked into some kind of time vortex in the beginning of the game, and Luigi has to find him and rescue him, with the help of Yoshi, by finding missing artifacts in the lands and returning them, then answering questions about them. How this helps you rescue Mario beats the hell out of me, but hey, whatever works for the game makers. There are a lot of lands in the game,??? in all, but they are all pretty static, and all that changes is the building and map structure and the different artifacts. The controls are as follows: Controls +++++++++++ Map Selection Screen ---------------------- Up (D-Pad) - Enter a land Gameplay Screen ---------------- START - See Tools SELECT - Toggles smaller version of city map on screen Up ( D-Pad) and Down ( D-Pad)- Cross a street (Have to use walkways) A Button - Talk to people Make a selection B Button - Jump on enemies Y Button - Dash 3. Oh, The People You Meet... <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> There are five people that you can meet and talk to in each of the lands, even though it is not necessary with the help of this walkthrough :) They all give information to you about the land or the artifact you are holding, for "extra learning purposes" (The fun never stops with Mario Is Missing!, yessir). People +++++++++ 1. Professor- Talks about the general geography of the area with a smarmy attitude. 2. Police Officer- Tells you not to do certain things in a city, and acts like the ultimate "classroom cop". 3. Kid- Whines about his life and how his parents won't let him do something...something you don't care about. Don't waste your time talking to this future sanitation engineer. 4. Business Woman- Because the makers don't want to seem sexist, they threw in the stereotypical business woman, who can achieve anything if she puts her mind to it. Mindless blather ensues. 5. Tourist- Looks through his tourbook, finds an interesting fact the area you don't give a rat's ass about and chuckles like a buffoon. Playing this game DOES teach you something: for the most part, people are idiots who shouldn't be bothered for information, as you are probably better off learning it yourself. 4. Tools <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> When you hit the START button in gameplay, a menu pops up with the following things : Artifacts, Computer, Globulator, City Map, and Photo Center. These are the tools of Mario Is Missing! Tools +++++++ Artifacts - Displays the artifacts you currently have for that level Computer - Displays all information you have collected so far. To complete a level, all you have to do is find the artifact and return it to its original place. Globulator - Displays a world map, and shows all the lands you have completed so far. To exit a level, use the Globulator to move to the spot on the world map where the city is, and then go to the blue pipe where the cactus is. Thanks to Chris Horkins for the info. City Map - Shows a map of the city, and points out where all the enemies are, the information centers, the people, the landmarks, and the starting-ending pipe. Photo Center - Visit an information center after replacing an artifact, and you will receive a photo of the landmark.(Worst...incentive...ever...) 5. Walkthrough <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> There are five doors in a floor, with a city and country being in each of them. After you get all the artifacts in a land, move Yoshi to the city on the Globulator where you are and then go to the cactus to exit the level. When I list the lands, I list them from the one closest to the door to the one farthest away. 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 in that order +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Floor 1 ======== Boss: Wolfgang Von Bowser Cities: Rome,Italy - Beijing,China - Nairobi,Kenya - Moscow,Russia San Francisco,USA ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rome, Italy ============ A.
