This afternoon however it was all about to change. It started out like any other day, Clayton going off to school, leaving his father at home with his experiments. Today, however, his father was on the verge of a fantastic breakthrough and Clayton could barely keep his mind on his lessons. As soon as the last bell rang, Clayton raced home hoping to get there in time to help his father with his work. Half a world away another person eagerly awaited Professor Putty's breakthrough. Through the smoke of his magic cauldron the eyes of the wicked witch doctor, Jobo, looked down upon Mudville. Would this upstart professor be able to do what only he, the great Jobo, was able to do? To turn living creatures into clay! There was only one way to know for sure, to go there in person. With some incantations and a puff of brimstone he was on his way. Clayton ran up the porch and into the house only to be knocked to the floor by an explosion coming from the basement. Startled and a little bit scared Clayon looked up to see his father smiling with success. It had worked! The claymorph serum worked! Suddenly there was a second explosion and in a cloud of smoke the witch docter Jobo appeared. Claiming the powers over clay were his alone, Jobo demanded the serum and its formula. -[3]- Professor Putty was not going to let his breakthrough go without a flight, but he was powerless to stop the wicked Jobo. Seeing that he was not going to get his way Jobo seized the professor and turned the protesting Clayton into a ball of clay, escaping in another puff. Now its up Clayton to rescue his father, and the serum, which will turn him back into a little boy. He will face many dangers as he travels to the ends of the earth, and possibly beyond, if he is to finish his quest. To aid him in his quest, Clayton had the ability to transform into five different animals with the help of different pieces of clay he may find along the way. Each of the five animals has its own abilities and skills, and he will need them all as he runs, jumps, flies, swims, and climbs passed anything in his way. -[4]- CLAY Throughout Clayton's travels in the land of the Claymates he will find colored pieces of clay. Clay allows Clayton to transform into the different animals characters. When you have Clayton pick up a piece of colored clay he transforms into the animal of that colour. For example, if Clayton picks up a grey piece of clay he becomes Oozy, picking up a purple piece of clay will transform him into Goopy, etc. If Clayton transforms from one clay animal to another, he will also get a wandering Orb. -[5]- CAST OF CHATACTERS Muckster Clayton transforms into Muckster when he gets a red piece of clay. Like most cats Muckster has razor sharp claws. They come in handy when Muckster needs to defent himself against ene- mies and cling to the sides of trees. Muckster can climb up and down the trees; getting to places others cannot. All of this makes Muckster a rather arrogant feline. He believes he is the best Claymate. OOZY By collecting a gray piece of clay, Clayton becomes Oozy the Mouse. Oozy is able to run faster than any of the other Claymates and defeats his enemies with his mighty roar. Once Oozy starts running, nothing can keep up with him. Thanks to a technique called Blaze Processing, it is possible for Oozy to accelerate to his amazingly high top speed. He will seem like a blur, screaming across your television. One of Oozy's other attributes is his small size. He is also able to slip through many holes which other Claymates, like Muckster, can only look through. -[6]- GOOPY Clayton can transform into Goopy by picking up a purple piece of clay. Goopy can swim around the sea with ease, zipping by enemies who get in his way. He is also able to jump onto the shore whenever he wishes. Goopy is only able to stay on dry land only as he can hold his breath. If he cannot get back to the water in time, he will become the clay ball again. Goopy does not like anything getting in his way and will spit air bubbles at enemies to clear them out of his path. GLOBMEISTER When Clayton finds a brown piece of Clay, he can become Globmeister the Gopher. Globmeister is able to burrow into the ground through loose dirt, getting into caverns none of other Claymates can reach. The deeper the hole he needs to dig, the happier Globmeister becomes. While happy with digging holes throughout the world, Globmeister also collects acorns in his spare time. He can throw his collection of acorns at enemies trying to stop him from digging, there is nothing which makes Globmeister more unhappy, so he always makes sure that he has as many acorns as he needs. -[7]- DOH-DOH By merging with a green piece of clay, Clayton can take on the form of Doh - Doh the Bird. Doh-Doh is able to fly into the air by flappung furiously with his wings. Although he is not very graceful, he can still fly over enemies and up into the sky to places none of the other Claymates can reach. He also needs a runway to get up enough speed to leap into the air. He can only get in the air by taking off like an airplane. There was not enough clay when Doh-Doh was made, so his wings are much smaller than they should be. Because of his small wings, Doh-Doh tires easily while flying and can only stay in the air for a short time. When Doh-Doh runs short of breath he will stop flapping his wings and fall to the ground. Because he is made of clay, he never gets hurt by any of these falls and is ready to jump into the air right away. -[8]- PLAYING THE GAME Starting the Game Begin by inserting the Claymates Game Pak into the Super Nintendo Enterainment System and turning the Power Switch ON.

CLAYON'S OTHER ACTIONS In the world of Clatmates there are many objects which Clayton can jump on, move, or push. These things will let Clayton move to hidden areas in the levels, as well as allowing him to finish the level he is already in.

Once the box is open, its special contents are revealed. -[18]- MAP SCREEN You can move Clayton around the Map Screen by pressing the control pad in the direction you want him to go. Pathways may be blocked by trees or rocks, so Clayton must go through the level in that area to get help. To enter a level, move Clayton onto a whirlpool. When Clayton finishes a level, two robots will be released. They are there to clear things out of Clayton's way. But they're not as smart as you or Clayton, so you must move the carts and rocks in the area into and out of the way of the robots to steer them around the map. When a robot hits a tree, a rock, or a fence it will turn. By moving the rocks and carts you can have the robots turn when you want. -[19]- You will want to make the robots move towards the axes and bombs. When a robot moves onto one of these objects, it will pick it up and begin to flash. The robot still does not know how to get to the obstacle in Clayton's path, so you will have to steer it with the rocks and carts again. Once the flashing robots finds an obstacle, it will clear the blockade out of Clayton's path. If any of the robots are stuck in a part of the map where they cannot help Clayton, he can send the robots back their entry place by punching them using the Y button. Clayton can also get bored with the slow moving robots. So you can press and hold the B button down to make them move faster. -[20]- It is also possible for Clayton to go back to a level which he has already completed on the same continent. Also, Clayton can exit a previously completed level if you hold down SELECT and then press START. Once Clayton has finished the last level on a continent, he will find a large cannon. Move Clayton onto the cannon, he will be immediately loaded and shot off into the sky. The cannon will blast Clayton to the next continent. ACTION SCREENS (LEVELS) Once Clayton has entered a Whirlpool he will be moved into a level. The Action Screen will now appear. The action screen shows the following attributes: Time remaining # of crystals _ Score .________\_______|____________/__.

He may need to use many of them to solve puzzles that he finds: -[21]- Going into a TELEPORTER from any direction will move Clayton to another point within the level. A point he may be unable to reach by any other means. SMALL AND LARGE CLOUDS - most clouds in the sky can be walked on, while the larger clouds will move on their own. VENUS CLAY TRAPS will try to eat Clayton alive. ZOOMERS will proper Oozy and the clay ball along at a rapid rate. There is also a large collection of spikes, nails, and other sharp objects which will hurt Clayton when he touches them accidentally. MOVING PLATFORMS also exist which allow Clayton to access places he cannot normally jump or climb. PINATAS are found throughout Earth and can be broken open by attacking them. They often contain crystals which Clayton can always use. -[22]- When Clayton up a GOLDEN STAR he will receive a free life. WINDSOCKS can suddenly deflate letting Clayton fall towards the ground. BAD BRICKS may look like something for Clayton to walk right by, but watch out a nasty surprise! LOSING A CLAYTON When all of Clayton's lives have been lost the game is over. Any of the following actions will result in either the loss of a life while he is a clay ball. These actions will also return Clayton to the clay ball if Clayton has merged with another coloured piece of clay, or the loss of the orb if Clayton has one. -[23]- * Hitting any of the sharp objects in the game. * Touching or being shot by any of the enemies which are wandering, rolling, flying, swimming or bouching throughout the levels. * Being eaten by Venus Clay Trap or touching one of the various other obstacles on Earth such as Power Surges and Bursting Pipes. * Clayton will lose a life if he falls through the bottom of the screen. * Allowing the time to run out will also result in the loss of an entire Clayton even if he is in another form. CYSTALS Clayton will two different kinds of Crystals in his travel, red and green. The larger green crystals are worth 5 of the smaller red ones. If Clayton can finish a level with 100 Crystals, he will go on to a Bonus Level. And for every 100 crystals after that he will also get an extra life. So, when the number of Crystals on the screen reaches 200, 300, or 400 an extra life will be added to the number of lives remaining. -[24]- THE DIFFERENT BONUS LEVELS The Grid - This special level is entered by finishing a level with more then 100 crystals. If Clayton is able to bounce on all of the yellow squares as they light up, he will receive an extra life. Panchinko BAlls - When Clayton has collected the four letters to the word CLAY, he will be transported to this bonus level. To move higher up on the screen in this special game, hold the B button down and press UP on the control pad at the same time. USING CLAYTONS ANIMAL FORMS Some of Clayton's animal forms are more helpful in different situations than others. For example, Oozy is often the only Claymate who can enter very small openings. Doh-Doh can fly to areas that other characters cannot even see. Goopy can swim quickly through the water while the clay ball only moves slowly. -[25]- CONTINUING THE GAME As soon as Clayton has lost all his lives the game is over and the continue Game screen will appear. Using the control pad, you can move Clayton towards the words YES or NO. If you select NO, you will be returned to the title screen. Selecting YES will start the game at the beginning of the last played. Finishing Levels Clayton's goal is to travel throughout the Earth and get to the final level. There he will be able to save himself and Professor Putty. It is possible for Clayton to travel quickly through a level but you may miss things that are hidden. Different paths through areas on Earth are not always easy but they may give Clayton a much needed extra life or special item. Throughout the levels there are plungers which can save Clayton's progress while in the area. If Clayton loses a life he will return to the plunger which marks his furthest progress in the level instead of being returned to the beginning of the level. When Clayton finally does make it to the end of a level he will be reduced to the clay ball in order to release the robots. However, Clayton won't lose any of the Geo-Shapes that he has found. If Clayton has picked up more than 100 crystals at this point he will be transported to the Grid Bonus Level -[26]- where he can win an extra life. Whether he enters the bonus level or not, two robots will be released and it is Clayton's job to steer the robots around to destroy all the obstacles in his path.

They will run Clayton down if you are not careful. Samurai - These Japanese warriors try their hardest to keep Clayton from passing through their levels. They are able to move very fast.
