The Xtreme Cola company has issued a challenge inviting all Xtreme Sports fanatics to duke it out on the mysterious Xtreme Sports Island! Participants must master Street Luge, Skateboarding, In-Line Skating, Skyboarding, and Surfboarding! Can Guppi and Fin battle their way to the top, or will they be buried in the onslaught of the competitors? It's up to you to decide! CHOOSING A MODE Choose NEW GAME to begin a new adventure. NOTE If a game has already been saved, choosing a NEW GAME will SAVE OVER EXSISTING GAME!! Be careful not to save over your current data! Once it's lost, it cannot be recovered! P3. A diagram of a GBC showing the buttons (does not provide info on what they do) P.4 If a game has been saved, the CONTINUE mode will be enabled. This allows you to pick up where you left off, and keep your current number of Medals and location on the island. To practice on the multiple tracks and difficulty settings, choose PRACTICE, Practice Mode allows players to select from 3 tracks in each event. You can use the + Control Pad to toggle through the events, tracks, and difficulty levels, and press the A Button to advance your selections. To skip through the choices and go straight to an event, press START. NOTE There are many tracks available on the island that are not present in Practice Mode! Practice may make perfect, but a real competitor must challenge real opponents! P.5 GETTING AROUND THE ISLAND While exploring the island, Guppi and Fin will encounter many friends and foes, as well as a few secret treats for those with a watchful eye. Move up to a person or object, and press the A Button to investigate. Some people will offer advice, while others will issue a challenge. You can also use the A Button to check for hidden Medals! There are 20 hidden Medals in all. Can you sniff them out? OUT OF MY WAY! There are many roadblocks that will obstruct Guppi and Fin's travel plans. Referees are located all over the island, and will not allow beginners to enter into more advanced events. These 'Refs must be appeased in order to move on to bigger and better things. Listen to their Medal requirements, and do your best to qualify. Remember too, that different 'Refs require lower amounts of Medals to qualify, so look for the easy fellahs first! GO WITH THE FLOW Guppi and Fin can also swim around the waterways, but can not go against the current! Learn to use the waterways to navigate the island quickly, but beware of wrong turns... Once you go over the falls there's no turning back! P.6 ENTERING THE CONTEST New players must leave their name at the Sign-In Hut. This is necessary for keeping track of your Medal Count, and for receiving Mail at the Message Center. Once signed up, players must qualify with each event's Coach before they can move on to the main competition. Make sure to listen to the Coach's advice, and study their TIME, TRICKS, FLAGS, and COMBOS before you challenge them. If you don't beat all their scores, you won't qualify! Lastly, if you get stuck, you can read the signpost next to them to get detailed instructions on how to play each event. SAVING THE GAME After beating the Coaches, you will be free to wander the island, taking on whomever you chose. While traveling about, keep your eyes peeled for Save Stations, which are located all over the island. To use them, face the intercom and press the A Button. You will be given 3 choices: Save and Continue (save and keep playing) Save and Quit (save and quit to the title screen) Don't Save (keep on playing without saving... remember that the other 2 choices will replace any existing game data!) P.7 NOTE Make sure to save often, or you'll lose your progress when you turn off the game! CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES WISELY If you want to move up in the world, you're going to need Medals and lots of them! To get them, you must defeat as many challengers as you can buy studying their scores and beating them out one by one. Although you are free to take on whomever you choose, it is VERY IMPORTANT to gather information before you make the challenge. Some of the competitors are very slow, but skilled at Tricks, while others may be faster and better at Flag collecting. Look at several competitors, and challenge only the ones you think you can beat. This will allow you to use what you've learned when facing tougher opponents! POWER-UPS Scattered about the various tracks are Twitchy Shakes, a powerful energy drink designed to enhance a competitor's performance. The effect of drinking a Twitchy Shake varies from event to event, but they have been known P.8 to invoke invincibility, higher speeds, or even extra jumps! Press the A Button to try it out! (While Skateboarding, you must hold the A Button for one second to use a Twitchy Shake) YOU'VE GOT MAIL! From time to time, Guppi and Fin will leave messages for each other at the Message Center. These messages will continue to appear whenever you make significant progress in your Medal collecting. Be sure to read them, 'cause you never know what kind of mischief your partner is getting into. Check often, or you might miss something important! USING YOUR MAP While searching the island, it's easy to get turned around! If you need to check your location while on the island screen, you can press SELECT to look at your MAP. You will see your character's face flashing on the screen marking your present location. You will also notice several red arrows. These mark the many Save Stations you can use to save your game. Remember where they are, and don't forget to back up your progress! P.9 SO MANY MEDALS If you want to see how you're doing in terms of Medals, you can either press START while on the island screen, or talk to one of the Referees. There are a total of 420 Medals on the island: 400 that can be won from various competitors, and 20 secret ones. Some competitors, such as Boneheads and their Goon Squad henchmen, will surrender more medals to you when you beat them. Other easier opponents will give up only one. Experiment to find the best way to gather Medals and move up the ladder! THE EVENTS SURFING Press UP or DOWN on the Control Pad to steer your board, and use LEFT and RIGHT to dodge obstacles. You can launch off the top of a wave, then hold the B Button to enter SPIN MODE. Hold LEFT or RIGHT to spin, then be sure to line up for re-entry or you'll wipe out! You can also perform a SUPER-JUMP by aiming for the bubbling portion of the wave. Try to pick up Twitchy Shakes, then press the A Button to spend them for an offensive attack! You can also spend Twitchy Shakes in the air to spin at super speeds! Finally, you can crush enemies by landing on them after a mighty jump. Try it! P.10 SKYBOARDING Press the B Button to exit the plane, then use the + Control Pad to steer around, collecting as many Trick Arrows as you can! To perform a Combo, hold down the B Button while you use the + Control Pad to enter the Direction Arrows displayed on the menu. Release the B Button at any time to perform the Combo!

Give it a shot! STREET LUGE Hold down the B Button to build up speed! You can use the + Control Pad to steer LEFT or RIGHT, or press UP to brake.

Now youíre ready to go hit the ramps, ride the rails, and surf the skies! Keep your wits about you, and if you get stuck, try these helpful hints. After talking to a competitor, their stats will be listed on the right side of the screen underneath their photo. Remember that you have to beat or equal all of his or her TRICK, TIME, FLAG, or COMBO scores at once if you want to win! If you canít find any competitors, check your MAP, or follow the shoreline. Look in out of the way places like caves or sandbars. You canít win extra Medals by rematching a wiped out competitor, but you can use them for practice and addition advice. Talk to them! When pausing an event, you have the option to RESUME or CANCEL the event. Thereís no penalty for pulling out early, and you can always try again! Take time to explore each level! Some levels have alternate routes to boost your scores, while others have secret areas unseen by the average competitor. Search high and low! Master the use of Twitchy Shakes!
