1. About this FAQ
==============================

Well welcome to my FAQ. This is my first FAQ so please ignore any errors.
Fantavision is a unique and fun game that allows you play the role of that
guy who blows up the fireworks. I never thought that their job would be that
great but it turns out its a lot of fun. This guide was made for all the 
people
who imported a great game but don't know squat on what to do and just smash
the buttons wildy and watch what happens.

==============================
3. Game System
==============================

The object of the game in Fantavision is to keep the orange bar in the down 
left
corner full as possible. I call this the fan Bar it keep shows how much your 
fans are
enjoying the show, hehe. The fan bar decreases only when you miss a shell. 
It increases
when you start using combos, chains and other fancy stuff.

Shells = Are the fireworks that you must detonate. You require 3 or more of 
the same color shell to
detonate, this would be called a daisy. Shells come in green, blue, or red 
and the rainbow.
Daisy = A succesful explosion of 3 or more same color shells
Rainbow shell = A rainbow shell is the one that you see changes colors, it 
could act as a colorless
shell or be a link to any other shell. It is the start of a 2 daisy.


EX.  Lets say you have 2 reds a green and a blue and a rainbow

Red Red blue green rainbow

You could select the 2 red and the rainbow for a daisy

Red red rainbow
\     /
  \   /
   \ /
   DAISY!!
(Pls. excuse my crappy pics)

2 Daisy = 2 daisy of different colors link together with a rainbow  shell or 
2 linked shells

EX 1.

Red Red Red  Green Green  Rainbow
\        /   \                /
\      /     \              /
  \    /       \            /
   DAISY!         DAISY!


it would be like this on screen

Red Red Red Rainbow green green
\                           /
  \                         /
   \                       /
    \                     /
       2 Daisy!!

EX 2.

Red red red blue blue blue
\                  /
  \                /
   \              /
    \            /
       2 DAISY!!

3 Daisy = Same as 2 daisy with 3 different colors. DUH!!
4 Daisy = A 3 daisy with a another color at the end

EX.

Red red red green green green blue blue blue red red red

this is a 4 Daisy which means its just 3 different color with a daisy at the 
end that
does not match the last daisy. The reds at the end could be green but not 
blue.
Get it?

B Shell = its a any color shell that when used it gives bonus points and 
adds up the
Fan Bar.

S,T,A,R,M,I,N,E shells = Letters that when used in a daisy will allow you to 
go to the
bonust starmine stage!!
Starmine Stage = A bonus stage where your bombarded with so many shells!! 
enuff said

==============================
4. Tips
==============================

- Be patient if you can't get the right combo or if your missing one
- If you have a 3 daisy blow it don't waste it for the 4 daisy it extremely 
hard
to do it.
- keep your "Fan Bar" above the S mark on it at all time just to have backup 
if you screw up
- Be careful when selecting Shells you might not want to use those shells so 
press triangle to let
go of the unwanted shells

==============================
5. Stage Descriptions
==============================
I'll add more descriptions in future versions.


1. Night of the South Island

1st stage its simple they wont confuse you with that many shells so just 
relax.
there is only about 6 daisies where you would have to hold back to get them 
all.

Nice Stage remind me of New York with the statue of Liberty and everthing.

2. City Lights

2nd stage its simple they wont confuse you with that many shells so just 
relax.
there is only about 9 daisies where you would have to hold back to get them 
all.

Its Seattle BABY!!

3. Into the Space
3rd stage is easy just dont be afraid when the shells come out from your 
left
or your right sides

We are floating into outer space.... =) but how do we detonate Fireworks??

4. Shooting Stars

4th stage gets a little tricky, I keep confusing the comet for a shell...
+they really want you to hold back so be careful.

Stage look great focusing on the stars etc and all.

5. Moon City

Same as 4th stage but looks WAY BETTER

Makes me think if it will really look like that 50 yrs from now....^_^
DAmn it look great.

6. Snow on the Moon

Nothing really has changed but they shells come out faster now so be wary.

Ahh we start our trip back to earth....

7. Unknown Space

Shells come out everywhere And a little more faster They also make you wait
some so be sure you have everything before you detonate on long combos

this stage is freaky.

8. Beyond the Infinite

Almost The EXACT same THING but different colors.

Now I'm dizzy....

==============================
6. Secrets
==============================

I haven't tried em out so I'm sorry

Thats all for now!
