    Hiyall! Welcome to the ULTIMATE guide of Fortress for GameBoy Advance in
the world! If you need help, this is THE place to be!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------[The Game]----------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Do you like Tectris? Do you like Rampart? Or how about Legos? If you like
all these or other puzzle games, you'll love Fortress.

    In this game you have to build a castle (fortress) to protect your
civilians, who are called Twerps in the game. Then, you can use weapons to
destroy your opponent's castle, at the same time, racking up lots of points!
The nature can do dammage too! Watch out for Dinosaurs, Dragon, and even UFOs!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------[The Guide]----------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, I wanted to make a guide for this game the first time I saw some
screenshots, and here I am. Let's start!


===============================================================================
==============================[ C O N T R O L S ]==============================
===============================================================================


[ M E N U ]

START - Select
SELECT - Cancel
A - Select
B - Nothing
L - Nothing
R - Nothing
NAV PAD - Navigate

[ I N   G A M E ]

START - Pause
SELECT - Nothing
A - Switch Position
B - Switch Position
L - Chop off 3 Vertical Rows but lose 200 points or more
R - Look at your opponent's castle
UP - Drop down fast
LEFT - Move block left
RIGHT - Move block right
DOWN - Drop down


===============================================================================
===========================[ G A M E   B L O C K S ]===========================
===============================================================================


    There are some blocks in the game, and I am going to show you each one of
them. Each has variations, and I am not going to draw all of the variations...
 _
|_|   _    _        _    _        _
|_|  |_|  |_|      |_|  |_|_    _|_|     _      _
|_|  |_|  |_|_    _|_|  |_|_|  |_|_|   _|_|_   |_|_
|_|  |_|  |_|_|  |_|_|    |_|  |_|    |_|_|_|  |_|_|

    Use these blocks to create 3 by 2 or bigger combos. Then the blocks will
transform into walls or bricks or towers. They are stronger than normal blocks.
A 8 by 3 block can give you a wizard tower, which sends an animal weapon to
attack your opponent. When you put something on top of towers, they will
re-transform into walls.

    When your castle get dammaged, blocks may transform into rubble. When you
drop something on rubbles, you will have more rubbles. You either have to wait
until it clears out, or a Twerp repairs it.

    Now there is another block, which I call mod block. It's a 2x2, and it is
special because it can be either a weapon, a bomb, or a barrack that send
Twerps to repair your castle. You can change between each other, but there are
a limit of 4 weapons. Once you set them down, protect it by building walls
around it. Also, when you drop it on an unsafe place, it will break into
rubble. Here's an example:

============================[ T I M E   Z O N E S ]============================
===============================================================================

    There are 4 time zones in the game. In each, there are a particular animal
which strikes your castle from time to time. Also, your Twerps, cannons, and
castle walls look unique for each zone.

[MEDIEVAL ERA]

    There are Armored Twerps protecting your building. You have cannons to
attack. The wizard Tower summons flying dragons.

[PREHISTORIC ERA]

    There are Dinosaurs attacking your castles, Caveman Twerps repairing, and
you have ancient catapults for attacking. The skull Tower summons Pterodactyl.

[PIRATE ERA]

    Watch out for giant Squid, while keeping your pirate Twerps safe. The
cannons are similar to the Medieval era. Your hut Tower summons parots.

[SPACE ERA]

    There are Green Fruits attacking your fortress, Space Man Twerps living
inside your castle, and lasers for attacking. The wierd Tower summons UFOs.


===============================================================================
============================[ G A M E   M O D E S ]============================
===============================================================================


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------[Battle Mode]---------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is a single round of battle. Choose your era and start the battle.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------[Tournament Mode]-------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is the big one. You have to pass all four Eras to win the Tournament
mode.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------[Blitz Mode]---------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is like Battle Mode, but you need more speed, because there are more
weapons, which means more destruction. The limit of cannons augments also!

- The game is slightly different than tectris. Little gaps don't mind. You need
  walls and you need them fast.

- When you start a game, push the flags toward your opponent to increase your
  building range by putting blocks near the flags. Then build like crazy before
  you can attack.

- Always watch your opponent and change your mode between Attacking and
  Defending, judging from his castle layout.

- When given a bomb, try to bomb weapons or weak blocks.

- When you make a wall, try to make another one asap. You can have bonus
  multiplyers when you do.

- Try to build a small vertical block, then extend on top of it. So when you
  get bombed, all of your blocks from the top drop down and you may create even
  more walls this way. I won many times using this formula. Dynamite!

- Try making lots of wall, which can give you bonus!

===============================================================================

    On Multiplayer, you can battle your friend in a frenzy castle building,
point racking game. You need 2 GBAs, 2 game Paks, and 1 GB Link. Then select 2
Players from the menu in both machines. Tada! Don't forget you can use [R] to
look at your opponent's castle.
