A Brief Explanation of My FAQ
-----------------------------

First of all, I'll explain the format of the game a little and what I've done in 
my FAQ.  There are eight sections in the game that are called zones and in each 
zone are sub-zones that have three different difficulty levels each.  So, I will 
be calling these sections "Zones", the sub-zones "Areas", and the difficulty 
levels "Levels".  In some of the areas, you'll see some tops spinning in the 
game play area with pictures on them.  When you get these things, which I call 
"Power Ups", you can use them to your advantage, or sometimes disadvantage.  If 
you see "Power Ups" under the area name, that means that the power ups appear in 
all levels of that area.  Otherwise, you'll just see what "Power Ups" can be 
used in each level.

--------
Controls
--------

Well, basically, it's just the D-Pad, or Directional Pad, to move the paddle and 
the X button to use the power ups.  When you have more than one power up, as in 
different types as opposed to amount, and want to switch between them, use the 
R1 button.

--------------
On To The Game
--------------

In the areas where you play against the computer, assuming you're trying to 
unlock all the areas, you must win with a difference of at least two points 
between your score and the computer's score.  For example, if you have nine 
points and the computer has eight points, you can win if you get one more point.  
In the same situation, if the computer scores and ties, then you will have to 
play on until either side wins.

======
Zone 1
======

Area 1 - Penguin Pong
Pong on ice with two penguins in the middle of the game play area walking back 
and forth.  One paddle to each side.  Each time you hit a penguin, another ball 
comes out, four balls max at once and you play to ten points.
Level 1 - Seal Saver
Power Ups: You get a seal to help you deflect the ball.
Level 2 - Polar Power
Power Ups: You get a polar bear.  It lifts up your side so the opponent's side 
can't get the ball over, if the ball is on that side.  Use carefully.

You have two goal areas and play to ten points.

toward you and vice versa.  One power up for a power hit; you get three power 
hits to each power up you get, max three.

that corresponds to the colors on the logs.

it can create more balls if a ball hits it.

colored box.

the game play area uneven.

Twelve balloons, 12 points.  The wall is divided into 16 pieces and the game

it.

Hit each balloon *twice* to pop them.  A portion of wall falls when the ball 
hits it.  A portion, as opposed to a section, corresponds to four sections.

whole wall goes down.  Looks very cool, kinda like dominoes.

Area 3 - Flock Fiasco

red circle in the middle.  Object is to get the sheep on the red circle.  Each 
time the the ball goes over the side any sheep in the red circle come out and go 
towards the edge of the cliff.  You lose if any sheep fall off the side of the 
cliff.

if there are any sheep in the circle, they run out to get away from the wolf.

======
Zone 5
======

Area 1 - Dervish Danger
Each side has two goal areas and you play to ten points.
Level 1 - Vortex
Power Ups: Holding, power hitting, and one with a skull on it to make the fans 
spin to create wind cyclones.
Level 2 - Robot Wars
Power Ups: None
There's a robot in this level that if you hit, it lays a smart bomb that burns 
the opponent's paddle, making it slower.
Level 3 - Belt Up
Power Ups: Same as "Vortex".
There are green buttons that are placed in between the goals making four goal 
areas.  Hitting the green button makes the conveyor belt under the paddle go in 
the corresponding direction of the arrow in the back of the green button.

Area 2 - Pongball Wizard
Power Ups: Infinite bumping
This is basically like a pinball machine.  There are four pillars, one has the 
gold bars on it and to start off, one will be glowing.  The one that's glowing 
is the only one that can be reduced.  Keep going at it until you can hit the 
gold bars with the ball.
Level 1 - Warm
One ball at a time, three gold bars.
Level 2 - Hotter
Start off with one ball and another ball comes out, kind of like a multi-ball in 
pinball, two gold bars.
Level 3 - On Fire
Start off with one ball and the other two come out, not at the same time though.  
Once you get all the pillars down, they come back up and you have to do it one 
more time before you have access to the gold bar.

Area 3 - Frog Follies
Power Ups: None
You're on a raft with four paddles and frogs and the object is to get the gold 
bars without the ball hitting a frog or falling off the raft.  There is one 
paddle to each side; the paddles on top and bottom control the direction of the 
ball in the left/right directions and the paddles on the left and right control 
the direction of the ball in the up/down directions.
Level 1 - Fools Gold
Three frogs.  Just manuever your way around them to get the three gold bars.
Level 2 - Rickety Raft
Five frogs, one isn't moving, and the raft has some openings.  My strategy was 
to go to the left where the furthest frog was and then go up.  Then to to the 
right where the right most paddle was and go down to get the two gold bars.
Level 3 - Hopping Mad
Seven frogs, three aren't moving, and this is just like "Rickety Raft" where 
there are openings.  The trick is to make get all the non-moving frogs to move.  
My strategy was to go towards the frog to the right of the ball and go down.  
Then go towards the side of the right most paddle and go up; this should get the 
frog that was initially to the right of the ball moving.  Wait for it then go 
past it, beyond the point where it stopped to get the frog that was initially to 
the left of the ball moving.  Once you've done that, go down to the last frog 
via the first non-moving frog's path and watch its path.  Once you've got it 
down, to up and tweak the ball to the left to get the gold bar.

======
Zone 6
======

Area 1 - Henhouse Surprise
Power Ups: None
There are four hens above the paddle and four coops behind it, each with a 
different color.  The object here is to get the different colored eggs laid by 
the hens into the coop with the corresponding color, and you go to 12 points.
Level 1 - Egg On Your Face
Just get the different colored eggs into the corresponding coop with the same 
color.
Level 2 - Egg-cellent
Just like "Egg On Your Face" only it's a little faster.
Level 3 - Egg-streme
In this level, a board comes down to cover a coop, so you have to keep juggling 
that egg until the coop opens up again.

Area 2 - Polar Pivot
Power Ups: None
You're on a circular platform and there's penguins walking in a circle and the 
ball is in the middle of them.
Level 1 - Penguin Parade
The object of this level is to use the ball to get the penguins to jump into the 
water.
Level 2 -Penguin Panic
Same as "Penguin Parade" except that the penguins move faster and they 
ocassionally change direction.
Level 3 - Pick a Penguin
Same as "Penguin Parade" except that they move back towards the center of the 
iceberg as you keep hitting or missing them.

======
Zone 7
======

Game Type 1
There will be three different colors below the paddle and balls will fall down.  
The object is to match the colored balls with the color below the paddle and it 
goes to six points.  The game area is the left part of the Atari symbol.

Game Type 2
Same as "Game Type 1" except that it goes a little faster.  The game area is the 
right part of the Atari symbol.
