WARNINGS BEFORE YOU OR YOUR CHILD PLAY VIDEO GAMES.
WARNING - Seizures
•
•
•
•
Some people (about 1 in 4000) may have seizures or blackouts triggered by light flashes or patterns,
such as while watching TV or playing video games, even if they have never had a seizure before.
Anyone who has had a seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptom linked to an epileptic condition
should consult a doctor before playing a video game.
Parents should watch when their children play video games. Stop playing and consult a doctor if you or
your child have any of the following symptoms:
Convulsions
Eye or muscle twitching
Loss of awareness
Altered vision
Involuntary movements
Disorientation
To reduce the likelihood of a seizure when playing video games:
1. Sit or stand as far from the screen as possible.
2. Play video games on the smallest available television screen.
3. Do not play if you are tired or need sleep.
4. Play in a well-lit room.
5. Take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour.
WARNING - Radio Frequency Interference
The Nintendo DS can emit radio waves that can affect the operation of nearby electronics, including
cardiac pacemakers.
• Do not operate the Nintendo DS within 9 inches of a pacemaker while using the wireless feature.
• If you have a pacemaker or other implanted medical device, do not use the wireless feature of the
Nintendo DS without first consulting your doctor or the manufacturer of your medical device.
• Observe and follow all regulations and rules regarding use of wireless devices in locations such as
hospitals, airports, and on board aircraft. Operation in those locations may interfere with or cause
malfunctions of equipment, with resulting injuries to persons or damage to property.
WARNING - Repetitive Motion Injuries and Eyestrain
Playing video games can make your muscles, joints, skin or eyes hurt after a few hours. Follow these
instructions to avoid problems such as tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, skin irritation or eyestrain:
• Avoid excessive play. It is recommended that parents monitor their children for appropriate play.
• Take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour, even if you don't think you need it.
• When using the stylus, you do not need to grip it tightly or press it hard against the screen. Doing so
may cause fatigue or discomfort.
• If your hands, wrists, arms or eyes become tired or sore while playing, stop and rest them for several
hours before playing again.
• If you continue to have sore hands, wrists, arms or eyes during or after play, stop playing and see a doctor.
WARNING - Battery Leakage
The Nintendo DS contains a rechargeable lithium ion battery pack. Leakage of ingredients contained within the
battery pack, or the combustion products of the ingredients, can cause personal injury as well as damage to your
Nintendo DS.
If battery leakage occurs, avoid contact with skin. If contact occurs, immediately wash thoroughly with soap and
water. If liquid leaking from a battery pack comes into contact with your eyes, immediately flush thoroughly with
water and see a doctor.
To avoid battery leakage:
• Do not expose battery to excessive physical shock, vibration, or liquids.
• Do not disassemble, attempt to repair or deform the battery.
• Do not dispose of battery pack in a fire.
• Do not touch the terminals of the battery, or cause a short between the terminals with a metal object.
• Do not peel or damage the battery label.

Rules & Techniques
Basic Rules
Touch the marble on the launcher, then slide your
stylus across the Touch Screen to “flick” it in a
direction. If you line up three or more marbles of the
same color, they will all disappear. But watch out! If the
marbles reach the reactor, your game ends!
(Note: The speed at which your marble leaves the
launcher depends on how fast you slide the stylus.)
Reactor
Launcher
Techniques 101: Creating Chains
Marbles of the same color are magnetically attracted to each other. Take
advantage of this property to prepare chains of alternating colors. Such chains
will eliminate many marbles at once.
Single Player
Next Marble
If there is more than one marble in the launcher,
it will be displayed here.
Rail
If similarly colored
marbles are on either side
of a group of marbles,
they will join together
when you clear the group
in the middle.
Eliminating Marbles
If three or more similarly
colored marbles are
drawn together, they will
form a chain and
disappear.
Chains will give you
bonus points. Creating
long chains is the secret
to setting a high score.
Multiplayer Games
P1
Slide your stylus away
from the launcher to
flick the marble in that
direction.
Flick marbles into
the chain to match
up three or more of
the same color.
P2
The matching
marbles will
disappear!
Forming chains in a multiplayer game will send bearings to your opponent!
Techniques 201: Magnetic Attraction
If marbles are left waiting near the reactor, use their magnetic properties to
pull yourself away from the edge of danger!
Quick Tips
Danger! Rockets!
Strike the rocket
with a launched
marble.
If marbles are waiting by the reactor,
figure out the color of the furthest marble
in the group, then launch a similarly
colored marble at the approaching line.
The magnetic attraction of the
marbles will pull the entire group
back to the approaching line!
Techniques 301: The Detonator
When you hit a marble with the detonator, all marbles of that color will be
destroyed! Detonators can appear in the launcher or the marble line,
depending on which mode you are playing.
Rockets push the marble line
at a high rate of speed, so you
must destroy them quickly!
There are two ways to do this.
Precision Control
To ensure your aim is true, slide the stylus firmly
and quickly in the direction you want to launch
the marble.
Timing The Launch
When a detonator appears in the launcher, flick it toward a marble in the line.
If a detonator appears in the line of marbles, hit it with a launched marble.
Once you launch a marble, you can’t launch
another one until the first marble disappears or
slides into the line.
Destroy all the
marbles in front of
the rocket.
Challenge Mode
In Challenge mode, your only goal is to clear marbles. As you do so, the level
will increase. Each time you clear ten levels, a rocket and detonator will appear.
When you beat level 99, you win!
Viewing the Game Screen

reset the meter. (The
meter always runs in
increments of ten.)

The Metal Ball
The reactor at the end of each line contains a metal
ball. If you do a good job of creating chains, the metal
ball will change from bronze to silver to gold. If you
don’t get gold the first time you clear a mission, you
can replay it at any time.

The Grid
Cleared puzzles are

Hints for Clearing Puzzles
The bearings in puzzles can be eliminated by destroying adjacent groups
of marbles. When bearings are separated from marbles, use the magnetic
properties of the marbles to bring them together.
When
bearings are
placed as
shown…
Launch a marble at
the bearing that
matches the color of
the next marble in line.
Doing so will attract
them to each other.

farther apart as desired, keeping the signal
strength at two or more bars for best results.
Keep the maximum distance between systems at 65 feet or less.
The systems should face each other as directly as possible.
Avoid having people or other obstructions between the DS systems.
Avoid inter ference from other devices. If communication seems to be affected by
other devices (wireless LAN, microwave ovens, cordless devices, computers),
move to another location or turn off the interfering device.
