Loading the Game –

This is a quiz game, in which you must answer to 3 kinds of quizzes and reduce your quota to 0.

Press start on the title screen to load the game. Select an answer with the up and down buttons and the A button on the first controller.
Ansering correctly will net you points and reduce your quota. Answering correctly multiple times in a row will double, triple, etc. the score received.
After clearing your quota, you clear a round. You’ll be given a roulette where you’re able to get either a 1UP, 1000-5000 points or nothing; stop the roulette with A.
If you give an incorrect answer, you lose a life. Losing all your lives leads to a game over.
After a game over, you’ll be asked if you want to continue. Press START to continue before the timer runs out, or press A to speed up the countdown.
