There are 3 main parts of the "game":
A picture of a Ford Tempo
taken with the Game Boy Camera.
Shoot contains the following choices:
- Shoot (take pictures)
- Items (Self-Timer or Time-Lapse)
- Magic (Trick Lenses, montage, panorama, Game Face)
- Check (checks the album stored in memory)
The Game Face game is notable in that the picture taken will appear
at least once in every game on the camera, usually as the main
Play is a built-in Space Fever II
game, which is the sequel to the Space Fever arcade
. At the beginning, 2 spaceships will appear. One of them will send players to a music sequencer known as "Trippy-H
" if shot at, where one can mix sounds and loops. This feature makes simple chiptunes. The other one will send players to Ball
, which is also available through shoot
If enough is done in the game, a third spaceship will appear in the
middle, and if that is shot at players will be sent to a racing
mini-game known as Run! Run! Run!
, which is listed as "?" on the left side of the screen.
In the actual Space Fever II
game the player is attacked by
spaceships and then attacked by bosses at the end of each group of
smaller ones. The first boss is a giant face of a man with horns, the
second boss is a giant face of a mustachioed man (who bears a slight
resemblance to Luigi
and the third boss's face depends on the pictures taken in "Game Face".
Once all 3 of the bosses are beaten, the cycle will start over again,
only harder. If this is the first time through, Run! Run! Run! will be
- Ball is a juggling game, in which the player moves his or her hand around to catch and throw balls in the style of the Game & Watch game of the same name, only with Mr. Game & Watch's head replaced with the player's.
- DJ, an open-ended music video game where the player can mix and create his or her own music. The player's head is the DJ.
- Space Fever II is an homage/sequel to an early Nintendo arcade game.
In the game, the player controls a spaceship which fires missiles at
other ships. The player's head becomes the boss of every third level.
- Run! Run! Run! is the bonus game, which is obtained by
reaching a score of 2,000 or more in Space Fever II. The player's head
becomes attached to a cartoon body, and he or she races against a mole
and a bird for the finish line.
View contains the following choices:
- Slide Show (displays slide show of the current album.)
- Animation (Where players can put together pictures to make it look
like they are moving. This is done by pressing select on main screen,
then going to edit, then animation.)
Hot-Spot (Where one can link 2 different pictures together by clicking on certain spots of the picture)
- Hot-Spot (see paragraph below)
Hot-Spot is especially good for creating a game where one can go
from one photo of a room to another in a house by pressing certain
spots (that players can set up) on the photo that will send the player
there. One do this by pressing "Select" on the main screen, going to
special, and choosing "Hot-Spot" (see list below). Each picture will
have 5 One-eyed blobs that can be put on it. Each blob can be
programmed to go to send the player to a different photo. Then, in
Hot-Spot mode, the places where the player put the blobs will send one
to other photos when clicked.
 "Start" and "Select" options
The following are options that appear when select
is pressed on the main screen:
- Link (print, transfer photos)
- Special (Hot-Spot, compose) (see paragraph above for Hot-Spot)
- Edit (Album, Animation)
- Doodle (Paint, stamp on pictures)
The following are options that appear when start
is pressed on the main screen:
- Username (make one's own username)
- High Score
The start options appear as planets and asteroids.
so you would press A on the first option "shoot" to take a picture.
