Before Starting The Game
When using the Virtual Boy system, several adjustments must be
mode before starting the game. For your health and safety, be
certain to perform these adjustments. If you wear glosses or
contact lenses, be sure to wear them while using the Virtual Boy.
Insert the Game Pak into the Virtual Boy, then turn the power
switch located on the front of the controller to the ON position.
When the screen pictured to the upper right appears, continue
with the PD and FOCUS adjustments.
Press START to display the IPD and FOCUS adjustment screen. Both
adjustments are mode using this screen.
When the batteries begin to get low, the indicator appears on the screen.
This adjustment sets Virtual Boy to the distance between your eyes
(the Inter Pupil Distance).
While looking at the adjustment screen, turn the PD dial located
on top of he Virtual Boy until you can see a mark in all four
corners of the screen, as shown in the following illustration:
The best adjustment may allow you to see only
three marks or four slightly blurred marks. When you have
completed the PD adjustment proceed with the FOCUS adjustment.
This adjustment makes sure that you see the game image in the
Virtual Boy display clearly.
Move the FOCUS slider to the CENTER POSITION as marked on the
housing. For most people, the center position should give the
clearest image. If the image is still fuzzy, then adjust the
FOCUS slider right or left until the image is sharp and clear.
While playing the game, press SELECT to view the IPD and
Focus Adjustment screen. After making any necessary adjustments
to the PD and Focus, press SELECT to return to the same.
If you are playing a two player game, make these adjustments
between each frame as you switch to the next player.
Automatic Pause Function
Each Virtual Boy Game Pak contains an automatic pause function
that will cause the game to pause after about 20 minutes of game
play. When the game pauses take a break and give your eyes some
rest. To resume game play, press START.
After completing the PD and FOCUS adjustments press START and
the screen pictured to the upper right will appear. The automatic
pause is preset to the ON position. Nintendo recommends that
you ALWAYS set the automatic pause to ON. To override the setting,
use Left or Right on the L + Control Pad, then press START to begin the game.
After playing "Nester's Funky Bowling" for approximately 15 minutes,
the game will present you with the Game Auto Pause Screen. At this
point, please take a break and give your eyes same rest. After your
rest is completed, press START to resume

Nester and Hester
Nester is a conceited video game player and a
notorious smart aleck. Years ago, he finagled
his way to comic stardom in the pages of
Nintendo Power magazine. After a glorious run
of forty-something issues, Nester called it quits.
He wanted to prove that he wasn't just another
He spent a couple of years as a struggling actor
before coming back to his bread and butter,
You thought Nester was bad? You should get a
load of his over-confident twin sister, Hester. A
whopping three minutes older than Nester,
Hester is quite sure that she is superior to her
little brother in every way.
Deep down Hester has always believed that
she could have been a bigger star than Nester.
Well, she finally has a chance to prove herself.
Will you help Hester, or will you help Nester?
