Safety Information
About Photosensitive Seizures
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images,
including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of
seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic
seizures” while watching video games.
These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face
twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness.
Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or
striking nearby objects.
Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should
watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms—children and teenagers are more likely than
adults to experience these seizures.
The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting farther from the television
screen, using a smaller television screen, playing in a well-lit room, and not playing when you are
drowsy or fatigued.
If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.
Other Important Health and Safety Information The Xbox Instruction Manual contains important
health and safety information that you should read and understand before using this software.
Avoid Damage to Your Television
Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially front- or rear-projection types, can
be damaged if any video games, including Xbox games, are played on them. Static images presented
during the normal course of gameplay may “burn in” to the screen, causing a permanent shadow of the
static image to appear at all times, even when video games are not being played. Similar damage may
occur from static images created when placing a video game on hold or pause. Consult your television
owner’s manual to determine if video games can be played safely on your set. If you are unable to find
this information in the owner’s manual, contact your television dealer or the manufacturer to determine
if video games can be played safely on your set.
Welcome, Time Sweepers!
Welcome, Time Factory Team! Our job, maintaining the orderly flow of
time, has never been more important!
We are facing the biggest crisis in our history. Someone has shattered
the ancient and mysterious Big Crystal, setting the universe on a path
to utter destruction.
We must restore the normal flow of time or face universal chaos. Your
help is vital!
Your Mission
Travel to the ancient time worlds to learn why time is disappearing. You
will encounter enemies bent on thwarting your mission, but you have
powerful tools to assist you. You will:
Sweep up trash to shoot at monsters created by time distortion
(you can’t sweep up time monsters—you have to shoot them).
Gather time crystals to activate Time Controls, which will help you
defeat enemies, overcome obstacles, and solve puzzles.
Use every resource to outmaneuver the Tom Tom Gang, who may
try to steal the Big Crystal fragments for their own nefarious ends!
If you remain tough, agile, and determined, you can overcome all
enemies and restore the orderly flow of time.

Threats And Hazards
Your mission takes you to distant worlds where you will encounter many
dangers. Of course, the Tom Toms will try to thwart you, so keep your
eyes and ears open!
Bosses
On your mission you will also encounter some
really major-league monsters. You have to
be resourceful and brave to overcome
these giant, aggressive enemies.
Time Monsters
The Tom Toms are not the only threat we face—far from it! When time
goes bad, it forms time monsters. On your mission you will encounter
many of these strange creatures. If you get too close to them, they can
keep you from accomplishing your mission. You can defeat time
monsters by shooting trash at them. When you do, they release time
crystals. Sweep up those crystals to get the use of Time Controls. There
are many kinds of time monsters, including these.
Stone Guardian
If this boss lands on
you, you are going to
be one flat cat! Once
he’s knocked down,
though, you’ll have a chance!
Kerofish
This monster looks like a
cross between a fish
and a frog. It eats
everything you shoot
at its face; feed it a
bomb to blow it up or
shoot it in the back or side!
Octoballoon
This menacing creature
floats in the air and
shoots trash at you.
Spiker
When this creature
attacks, its body
sprouts sharp spikes.
Giant Mandrake
This creature shoots debris at
you, so keep your eyes open
for whatever falls from him—if
you hit him you may be able
to pick up REWINDs,
bombs, or other goodies.
Three Ways To Play
As a Time Sweeper there are three ways to play through the adventures
in Blinx 2.
Single-player Mode
You can choose to meet all challenges by yourself. Many Time Sweepers
prefer solo play, facing enemies and using Time Controls without
assistance.
Have a friend who wants to get in on the action? No problem! You can
switch from Single-Player Mode to Two-Player Co-op Mode at any point
During each battle, weapons, ammo, and Time and Space Controls
appear on the battlefield. Be on the lookout for these and get to
them before your opponents.
You can pick up weapons you find on the battlefield, but you may
have to search for the right kind of ammo if they’re not loaded.
When you take out an enemy player, you’ll see colored orbs come
raining down. Stronger opponents give up more orbs, whereas
weaker opponents give up fewer, and you can’t collect orbs of your
own color. Snatch up as many as you can to gain points; the player
with the most points wins the match!
Two-player Co-op Mode
You can team up with another
Time Sweeper to face challenges
together. In Novice mode you
each play as you normally would.
In Specialist mode you divide
tasks between you. For example,
you can take on the job of attack
specialist, going after enemies
while your buddy handles the Time Controls.
vs. Mode
In Vs. Mode you and your friends can cut loose and battle the way you
want! Playing in Vs. Mode is different in many ways from the SinglePlayer and Two-Player Modes. Here are some of the differences.
Two to four players can fight at the same time either individually or
in teams. After you’ve played a match, you can save your match and
team information for future use.
You can set options such as number of rounds, lengths of the rounds,
and the victory requirements.
You can give orders to your team members to attack, seek out items,
or wait while you move around by yourself. Press the button
to switch among these commands.
You can use equipment and weapons only available in Vs. Mode,
including jetpacks and special barriers.
Spend your hard-earned money on weapons and
equipment to take into the next round of battle!
You can use Time or Space Controls in special ways available only in
Vs. Mode. For example, REW makes your opponents revert to an
infant state, making them smaller and more vulnerable. Experiment
with your controls to see what happens!

time sweepers On-Screen Info
Retry Counter
If your health falls to zero and you have gathered three Retry Hearts,
you can try again to overcome the threat. The small lights show how
many Retry Hearts you have collected (you need three Hearts to get
a Retry). The large lights are hearts in Retry containers. They show
how many Retrys you have.
Enemy Indicator
This indicator appears when enemies are nearby. If it is orange, the
enemy knows you are there. If it is yellow, the enemy is not aware
of your presence.
Enemy Health
This shows the health of the enemy you are facing.
If you hit the enemy, its health decreases.
Targeting Reticle
Your Health
You could just blast away without
aiming, but using this device to
lock on to targets before you shoot
will greatly increase your accuracy.
To use it, face the enemy, then pull
and hold the Left trigger to display
the reticle. When the reticle turns
red, tap the Right trigger to fire.
This indicator shows your current health.
Taking hits from enemies or falling into
traps decreases your health; getting a
carton of milk (or a piece of meat stolen
from the Tom Toms) restores it.
Elapsed Time
This is the amount of time spent sweeping
the current level. The faster you clear an
area, the greater your reward.
Sweeper Model
Enemy Radar
The radar shows you how close enemies are,
and the direction they’re moving. Enemies
shown in red are Tom Toms. Enemies shown
in yellow are time monsters.
NOTE
Not sure what you should be doing
to get ahead in the game? Press
START to get a reminder about your
current objective—defeating Tom
Toms, getting batteries, etc. Pressing
here will display the map, and
will allow you to modify
pressing
game options.
Time Controls
Current Trash
Use these controls to
change the flow of time. If
you have gathered enough
time crystals, use the D-pad
to select the Time Control
you want (PAUSE, REWIND,
FF, etc.), then press to
activate the control.
The number of items
you have picked up
with your sweeper,
which are available to
shoot at enemies.
This is the model number of the
sweeper you are using. If you are
successful, you can buy a more
powerful model and do even more
with it. Some models hold more
and larger objects you can sweep
up and shoot at enemies. Some can
only sweep up certain kinds of time
crystals, while others allow you to
store more Time Controls.
Maximum Trash Amount
Different sweeper models have different
capacities. This is the maximum number
of objects your sweeper can pick up.
The Time Factory
Gathering Resources
Your mission will take you far from home, to distant planets where your
courage, grit, and skill will be tested. But there is a place within the Time
Factory itself where you can prepare to meet these challenges.
You already know about collecting trash to shoot at enemies, but you
can gather other resources on your mission that will add to your
success. The following are some examples.
As you go around the Factory’s inner circle you will find three doors.
These lead to the Locker Room, the Shop, and the Theater.
Time Crystals
Locker Room
Here you assemble and customize your team to make it your own
by choosing the look you want for yourself and your mates. You can
choose your team’s uniforms, footwear, headgear, colors, and markings.
Even better, you can make yourself taller, shorter, thinner, or fatter. You
can even make your head, ears, and feet bigger or smaller! You can also
equip any new sweepers or weapon upgrades purchased at the Shop.
These are precious seconds that have
congealed into crystals. Gather three of
any crystal type and you can activate
the associated Time Control.
Shop
This is where you buy and sell weapons and items. You’ll also come to
Jimmy’s Shop to take on challenges. Select the “Talk to Jimmy”
option to see what’s available. Rank-up Exams are
challenges you have to complete to continue in
the game; other minigames are
just for fun and allow you to hone your skills
and get more medals and equipment!
Milk
On your mission you’ll find that
some crates contain a milk carton.
To restore your health, break open
the crate and get the milk.
Theater
Go here to view all the medals you have won in
the game. As you collect more medals, you’ll
unlock movies and artwork showing the heroic
Sweepers in action, as well as some rare behindthe-scenes footage of life at the Time Factory.
Coins
In some places you can sweep up gold,
silver, or copper coins. They won’t give
you Time Controls, but you can use
them to buy new weapons and other
gear at the Shop in the Time Factory.
DECOY
Throw in a Guard
Sweeper’s path so
he’ll slip and
knock himself out.
Pause time for the
Sweepers while
you keep moving!
TIME
GRENADE
BANANA
Time Sweepers have one big advantage in facing challenges and overcoming obstacles: the ability to control time. Has the bridge fallen down?
No problem—REWIND time to restore the bridge, then cross it. Lots of
enemies coming at you? Use PAUSE to stop them in their tracks while you
keep going!
Guard Sweepers
will chase this
decoy robot
instead of you!
Using Time Controls
Sweeping up time crystals lets you use the following controls and
combinations to alter the flow of time for brief periods.
We Tom Toms also have access to some great
gadgets to help us battle the Time Sweepers.

REWIND Time flows rapidly backwards for everyone but you.
STEALTH GAMEPLAY
Superior stealth is the key to Tom Tom success. When
you’re out to steal treasure, the best approach is to
sneak up on it, especially when there are Guard
Sweepers around. It’s hard to sneak past those vigilant
cats, but it’s all part of a Tom Tom’s normal day!
So how do you get past the Guard Sweepers? There are
plenty of ways for a tricky pig to do it:
Stay out of sight! Sneak around corners, creep
along walls, keep a low profile by crawling—
whatever it takes to avoid detection.
Take cover! Hide behind anything big enough to
keep you from being spotted. Crates, low walls,
and other kinds of cover will keep you safe from
the Guard Sweepers’ searchlights.
Wait for the right moment to move. Guard
Sweepers are creatures of habit. Keep an eye on
them, and you’ll figure out how and when to make
your move. For example, sometimes they take a
break to stretch, or the little dummies turn to
salute their leader or go inside to report. That’s
your chance to sneak right past them!
Distract the guards’ attention. One way is by
turning off the lights—while they’re checking the
switch, go on your way. Or you can fire a rocket to
excite the guards, who will investigate while you
sneak past. You get the idea!
Disable Time Sweeper surveillance cameras or
lights. The cats have cameras watching for your
approach. If they detect you, they’ll attack! If
you’ve got a ranged weapon, then use it to destroy
the lights or the camera.
Keep yourself and your weapons quiet! Of course,
shooting cameras or guards makes noise, and that’s
another way to get caught. It might be good to go
to the Shop and buy a silencer!
Don’t forget your Space Controls! They provide
ways to disappear from one place and reappear in
another, or to become invisible and move around
without the guards knowing you’re there. For more
information on Space Controls, see the next page.
THE TOM TOM BASE
We Tom Toms will go anywhere on any world to steal
treasure, but you’d better have the right equipment
or you’re gonna be toast! Lucky for you bums that
everything you need for successful piracy is available
at the Tom Tom Base. Inside you’ll find the Locker
Room, Shop, Garage, and Theater.
LOCKER ROOM
Here’s where you gather your team and customize it.
You’re special hogs, so go ahead and design a greatlooking uniform for your pirates! Choose your team
colors and markings. Then add fancy shoes, hat, and
glasses to get the look you want. The best part? You
decide how you look in the game—taller, shorter,
thinner, fatter. You can even make your head or feet
bigger or smaller! You can be a nimble piglet pirate or
an awesome, hulking hog. You can also improve your
weapons here, using upgrades you buy at the Shop.
SHOP
Here’s where you get the hardware you’ll need. This is
where you buy and sell weapons and items. You’ll also
come here to take on challenges. Just select “Talk to
Carlos” to see what options are available. Rank-up
Exams are challenges you have to complete to continue
in the game; other minigames are just for fun and
allow you to hone your skills and get more medals and
equipment!
GARAGE
There’s nothing like heavy hardware when you’re on a
mission. If you’re lucky enough to nab your very own
tank, you can customize it here by choosing different
treads, turrets, weapons, and decorations. Your tank
will be the ultimate Tom Tom weapon!
THEATER
What good is it being a top-notch bandit if you don’t
get a trophy case? Go to the Theater to view all the
medals you’ve won in the game. As you collect medals,
you’ll unlock cool movies of Tom Toms in action.

There are three ways to play through the adventures
in Blinx 2.
Being a pirate has its risks, but don’t worry about
danger when there’s treasure to plunder! You’ll be
going to distant worlds to grab everything you can
before the Time Sweepers get to it. When you
encounter threats and hazards along the way, try
sneaking past them before you try to defeat them.
THREE WAYS TO PLAY
THREATS AND HAZARDS
Guard Sweepers
The biggest threat you face is the Guard
Sweepers, who are always on patrol. Use
every stealthy trick you know to get past
them. If these dangerous cats catch sight of
you, you’re toast!
K9-1000
This watchdog robot
can be as big a
headache as the Guard
Sweepers. Sneaking past
him is a lot easier than
dealing with the problems
you’ll have if he and his
masters spot you!
Bosses
These huge, hostile creatures can
ruin your career as a pirate, so
listen up! You’ll have
to use every trick
in the book—and
a few that
aren’t—to stay
in one piece
and get past them to
complete your mission.
Single-Player Mode
If you want to win all the glory and the gold by
yourself, you’ll prefer solo play, facing enemies and
using Space Controls without assistance.
Two-Player Co-op Mode
Team up with another Tom Tom to face challenges
together. In Novice mode share all tasks (both of you
attacking enemies and using Space Controls), or in
Specialist mode divide tasks between you. For example,
you can attack enemies while your fellow pirate
handles the Space Controls. This way you can collect
more gold and overcome more enemies!
Vs. Mode
In Vs. Mode you and your pals can fight in the battle
of your choosing. Vs. Mode allows you to:
Give team orders so your team members attack
along with you, seek out items, or wait while you
sneak around by yourself.
Set options such as battle length and what it takes
to win so you can fight the battle the way you
want to.
Use Space Controls in special ways only available in
this mode.
For more information on Vs. Mode, sneak a peek at
“Three Ways to Play” in the Time Sweeper section of
this manual!
YOUR ENEMY:
THE TIME SWEEPERS
These Time Factory workers are no pussycats! They’re
tough and agile. Even worse, they’re watchful and
persistent, so it’s hard to sneak up on them. They can
manipulate time to outmaneuver us, so stay on your
toes! Worst of all, these annoying felines want to
keep everything honest and orderly—and where’s the
fun in that?
WELCOME, TOM TOM GANG!
Think you’re hog enough for the Tom Tom Gang?
We’ll see.
You’d better be tough, resourceful—and sneaky! If you
are, you’ll be a nefarious time bandit, using stealth to
steal treasures. And you can foul up those Time
Sweepers at the same time!
If you’ve got what it takes, this is your chance to steal
bigger and better things than ever before. Do your job
and you’ll be pigging out at the Tom Tom Base in
no time!
Your Mission
Listen up, you bums!
We’re off to the
ancient time worlds to
see if we can trip up
those mangy furballs
and beat them to
the treasure.
Your success depends
on stealth and
cunning. With your
superior sneakiness—
and mastery of Space
Controls—you’ll bring back a victory
for the Tom Tom Gang!
On this mission, you’ll:
Use stealth to evade detection. Watch out for
Guard Sweepers—if those guys see you, you’re
toast!
Use your powerful weapons and Space Controls to
overcome Guard Sweepers and other dangers.
Steal treasures right out from under those dumb
cats’ noses!
Remember: No slacking! Failure means a fate worse
than death: NO DINNER!
