  1.  HOW TO PLAY
=========================================================================

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
BASIC CONTROLS
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 This section outlines the basic controls for all cars:

 Steer - Control stick (left and right)
 Gas   - A
 Brake - B
 Shift Up (Manual Transmission) - R
 Shift Down (Manual Transmission) - Z
 Reverse - A+Z
 Power Slide - Tap brakes while applying gas through a turn
 Horn - C-Right
 Hand Brake - C-Down
 Look-Back - C-Left
 Toggle Cameras - C-Up
 Pause - Start

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
BONUS BOXES
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 In the Championship Circuit you can collect bonus points by smashing
 into Bonus Boxes scattered about the track.  If you don't qualify to
 advance to the next race, but manage to smash enough 2, 5, or 10 point
 Bonus Boxes to earn a "continue," you are allowed to try a track again,
 instead of starting over at the very beginning. If you don't need a
 continue for a particular track you can save it for a later race.

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
FLOWER BOXES
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 With the bonus boxes are also boxes with flowers on them.  Crashing
 through one of these boxes will enable a cheat.

 To get the cheat, you must crash through the flower box during a
 championship race and then finish the race in any place.  If you get
 disqualified, you will not get the cheat.  You also have to wait until
 the game saves the data.  This is typically at the end of all the
 championship races.

 2pt x5 - In the dungeon

== Alternate Route: Upper Cave/Dragon ==

   After the dungeon, or after passing the gate to the haunted mansion,
   a hidden cave will be on the right.  Take it to the upper cave (and
   put on your smoking jacket).

 10pt - Before dragon

== Alternate Route: Blacklight/Giant Pumpkin Area ==

   Take the jump after the lower gold cave on the right of the tree.
   You will jump the main road to the other side where there is another
   road.

 2pt x2 - On the road before driving through the tree

 5pt - End of the log bridge

 2pt x7 - After the red-lighted windmill tunnel, jump to the right to
       the large area with more windmills. (Jumping straight will take
       you back to the main course road.)

  - After the city, take the alternate route to the left. Instead of
    getting the nitro box, jump to the right.  In mid-air, you will
    see the flower box.

  - Just after the cathedral (going through it normally), turn left and
    follow the fence (so you're going the "Wrong Way") and you'll find
    the flower box.

  4.  BEST ROUTES
=========================================================================

 To beat the Championship circuits, or to beat your friends, the
 following routes are suggested.  In general, these are the true
 shortcuts.  Your mileage may vary.

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
COVENTRY COVE
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 - Cut corners as much as you can on the twisty road going up to the
   barn.

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
MOUNT MAYHEM
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 - Take the jump off the bridge to the crash-landed UFO.

 - Don't take the frozen waterfall route.  Instead, go straight and
   as soon as you see the end of the guard-rail near the pipes, jam on
   the hand-brake, make a quick turn left, go under the pipes to the
   tunnel entrance.  This cuts the entire curve out of the course.

 - Besides having the nitro boxes, the dirt roads do not seem to be
   a shortcut.  Staying on the main course will allow you to pass
   AI cars.

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
INFERNO ISLE
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 - You can use the small driveway tunnel on the left as you enter the
   town to hit the shortcut through the town itself.  When you get to
   the end on the platform, start your turn to the right and hit the
   side street entrance across the road.

 - Take the volcano shortcut right after the train tracks.  Not only do
   you avoid the slowpoke AI cars, but you can also keep your speed up
   along the way.

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
SUNSET SANDS
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 - It does not seem that the jump in the temple to the elevator is a
   shortcut.  A better shortcut is to drive the course normally, but
   when you get into the water temple, make the quick turn to the left
   and cut off the road around the water temple.

 - The shortcut through the town will only help if you make the turns.
   Be sure not to run into the walls and lose your momentum.

 - SP  suggests that you take the Hidden Dirt Road
   alternate route at the beginning of the course, but instead of going
   down the wooden gate route around the top of the temple, just go
   off the track and just before you hit the water, tap the L button
   to start again.  (This is more of an exploitation of the game more
   than anything, but, hey, it works! -Author)

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
METRO MADNESS
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 - Take the jump after the first set of barriers after the start of the
   race!  Make the hairpin by using the hand-brake and downshifting. It
   will easily put you ahead of a number of cars.

 - It seems that the movie theater is a shortcut.  You also avoid being
   taken to the wall by an AI car.

-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-
WICKED WOODS
-+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+----+-

 - Definitely take the alternate route through the blacklight area and
   giant pumpkins.  Make the jump from the windmill to the windmill area
   to the right and you take out the entire hairpin turn at the beginning
   of the race.

 - Leave the road and go behind the giant pumpkins.
