Mario Golf Advance Tour Guide Hi.This is my first walkthrough so it probably won't be very good.Oh well.I love this game and not many people write anything for this game,so I decided to write a walkthrough about this game.Enjoy!(Warning!There may be a few spoilers in this walkthrough) I.Characters II.Controls III.Story mode IV.Quick Game V.Multiplayer I.Characters *Fun characters* Mario 212yd drive(straight) The most popular character in Mushroom Kingdom.He hits his shots quite high,but has good distance. Peach 203yd drive(straight) The famous Princess Toadstool from the Mushroom Kingdom.She hits her shots around the middle and has fair distance. Yoshi 208yd drive(straight) Mario's loyal pet and closest friend.He hits his shots around the middle like Peach,but his distance is a little bit further. Donkey Kong(DK) 215yd(far left curve) Dk is one of Mario's rivals,mostly from a long time ago.He hits his shots low and has nice distance,but his ball curves,which can complicate things. *Unlockable Characters* Luigi* 206yd drive(left curve) Luigi is Mario's younger and less famous brother.He hits his shots low,and has fair distance. Waluigi* 209yd drive(right curve) Luigi's rival and supposedly Wario's younger brother.He hits around the middle and has good distance. Wario* 210yd drive(far left curve) Another one of Mario's rivals and supposedly Waluigi's older brother.He hits low and has a nice distance. Bowser* 217yd drive(far right curve) Bowser is Mario's most popular rival,and probably the worst.He hits his shots around the middle and easily has the best distance of the Nintendo characters. *To unlock these characters,transfer them from Mario Golf:Toadstool Tour. *Story Mode Characters* Neil ???yd drive(???) Neil is a story mode character whose stats are determined by you. Ella ???yd drive(???) Ella is a story mode character whose stats are determined by you.

Tournament This is just a little tournament where you have to get the best score.If you do,you will get a gold cup,become able to challenge Joe,and are eligible for the next cup.Beat Joe so you can now play as him in the other modes.Afterwards,go out and about and head to the next place,Palms Club. *Palms Club* This place is a little more difficult than the Marion.You can't go to this clubhouse though.You can choose to practice,play tournament,or practice techniques.If you don't play well with water,I suggest you practice these holes,since most of them have water and sand.Afterwards,head to tournament. Tournament This one is a bit harder,but still easy to win.When you get the gold cup,you can then challenge Sherry and unlock her in other play by beating her.Anyways,now you qualify for the Dunes Cup. *Dunes Cup* This place is different.Its mostly bunkers and waste areas.I suggest going to practice before entering the tournament.As usual,you can't go to the clubhouse.After practicing the holes,you can head to the tournament. Tournament This one is kinda hard.Almost all around is bunkers and waste areas.Waste areas are worse because they take longer to get out of.This place is hard,but winnable.After winning,you can challenge Azalea,beat her,and unlock her.You qualify for the Links Tourney,so head there. *Links Tourney* This place is for the really good players.I absolutely suggest practicing here.Its hard.This place has a mix of water,bunkers,and waste areas,with a ton of trees to get your ball stuck.Head to tournament. Tournament This place is really hard.Its not impossible,just really frustrating.Watch where you hit the ball because one shot can ruin your chances of winning.After winning,you can challenge your teacher Kid.Even though he lost all golfing abilities,you can challenge him.Weird.Well,now you're lucky because you qualify for the Mushroom Tournament.Go to the clubhouse and in the middle of the room there should be a yellow ball.Go up to it and Toad should pop out and take you to Peach's castle. *Mushroom Tournament* Yes,its true.You got here.You get to see all the Mario characters arguing and sayign stupid stuff.Well,this place is different.There is no place to practice,so you're on your own. Tournament This place will test every ability yuo possess.In addition to the usual things,it also has warp pipes,which move your ball,play panels,which alter the course,and chain chomps,which give you out of bounds and trouble.There are also fast zones.This place is almost impossible.It is winnable,but the biggest pain in the butt.After you win,you can watch the credits and enjoy life. IV.Quick Play This is a break from story mode.You can play against a computer player and just have fun.You can be any character you have unlocked here.Its very fun. V.Multi-player Game Here is where you can link up with your friends and have a good old time playing and crushing your friends.But you can also play by yourself as multiple characters.Its fun and a good way to level up you and your partner for story mode. Well,that's about it.I hope you enjoyed my walkthrough and I hope you enjoy this game.Thanks for reading this.
