ADVENTURE MODE
You’ve just been transported into a game world where anything can happen. Your
quest in this game world is to find the castle that has the doorway that leads home,
but many challenges await you- a frozen valley, giant jellyfish, a powerful magician.
You can begin your journey in one of two ways: the Training Program or the World
Map.
TRAINING PROGRAM
If your handheld is docked in the laptop, you will enter the Training Program. The Training
Program tests your knowledge in Language Arts and Math. Do well and you will be
rewarded with a chance to earn valuable coins. Redeem these coins at any of the shops
in the World Map for items that will prepare you for the action games that lie ahead.
Once you think you have enough coins and want to continue on your journey, save
your game (see SAVING YOUR PROGRESS) and turn Off your VTech® Double
Team™ game system. Remove the handheld from the laptop. Turn On your VTech®
Double Team™ game system, go into Adventure mode then load your saved game.
Coins can be redeemed at any of the shops (in the World Map) for items that will increase
your performance levels in energy, power, and endurance. Increase your performance
levels to help you complete the challenges in the action games. Whenever you want
to improve your performance levels save your game (see SAVING YOUR PROGRESS),
place the handheld into the laptop, enter Adventure mode and choose, “Continue.”
ENERGY
Increase energy to increase
the number of chances at
completing a game.
INITIAL SETTING: 100
POWER

your character’s status go to the map view, and then press menu. Now, press Right
on the D-pad. You’ll see how many coins your character has.

When you first enter the Training Program you must choose to enter one of two
magic rooms. The first room leads to Language Arts or word activities while the
second room will take you to Math activities. Do your best in these activities to
win a chance to collect coins.
BONUS GAMES AND EARNING COINS
To enter a bonus game and earn coins, you’ll need to do well in the Language
Arts and Math activities. For example, if you’re playing at skill level two, you’ll need
at least 80 points to play a bonus game and earn coins. This chart shows how
many points you’ll need at each skill level.

WORLD MAP
If you begin your quest to the castle from the handheld you will first see the World
Map. From this map, you will encounter action games throughout your journey. You
must complete the games or you cannot continue along your current path. Be
warned- to better prepare yourself for these challenges, you should go through the
Training Program.
– To move around the World Map, use the Direction Pad.

icon then press Action.

Enter the correct amount to complete your purchase and leave the shop.
There are only three reasons that you will not be able to buy items.
