Accessing The Game

Your VMU is blah blah blah TODO

A to go forward B to go back

you press the sleep button to wake up the VMU, then press menu until you get to the ace of spades logo. Now press A. Chao Adventure will start!

Adventure Screen

The first image you will see is your Chao journeying across the screen casually. At first it will be walking, but eventually as you reach other levels it can also be swimming, flying or climbing. Your Chao will walk on its own, and the only thing you’ll need to worry about is various events happening with your Chao, fully detailed in the events section.

At anytime your Chao is strolling along, and without anything else happening at the moment, you can bring up the main menu by pressing the A button. Here, you can view the status of your Chao, see your inventory, play the fruit matching game and more - please see the full list below:
