About Photosensitive Seizures

A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these "photosensitive epileptic seizures" while watching video games.

These seizures may have a variety of symptoms including: lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects.

Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms—children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures.

The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting farther from the television screen, using a smaller television screen, playing in a well-litroom, and not playing when you are drowsy or fatigued.

If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.

Other Important Health and Safety Information.

The Xbox Instruction Manual contains important safety and health information that you should read and understand before using this software

Avoid Damage to Your Television

Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially frontor rear-projectiontypes, can be damaged if any video games, including Xbox games, are played on them. Static images presented during the normal course of game play may “burn in” to the screen, causing a permanent shadow of the static image to appear at all times, even when video games are not being played. Similar damage may occur from static images created when placing a video game on hold or pause. Consult your television owner’s manual to determine if video games can be safely played safely on your set. If you are unable to find this information in the owner’s manual, contact your television dealer or the manufacturer to determine if video games can be played safely on your set.

Unauthorized copying, reverse engineering, transmission, public performance, rental, pay for play, or circumvention of copy protection is strictly prohibited.

THE STORY

The Twelve Sacred Albums of Funk have been stolen! It is up to you to travel to Earth as Big Earl, ToeJam and Latisha in order to recover the twelve Albums for Lamont – the Great Funkopotamous – and funkify the situation, returning order to the universe. On your journey you will encounter hordes of the most unfunky Earthlings you’ve ever seen, dozens of cool gift-wrappedweapons andpower-ups,five vast environments, and tons of humorousmini-gamechallenges that will test your skills, your wits, and your Ways of the Funk.

THE CHARACTERS

ToeJam

“Why act humble if you got it all.”

ToeJam (TJ) is feared and admired by all other rappers, desired by all the hottest ladies of Funkotron, and looked up to by all as a leader and a role model … in his dreams! The truth is, TJ’s natural abilities are considerable, but they are nothing compared to his self-confidence.It's

about the size of a planet.

ToeJam's biggest dream is to have a girlfriend. Any girlfriend. Which is to say, in TJ’s view of things, he just hasn’t picked one yet.

ToeJam knows, without any doubt, that the best way to win a girl over

is to wear her down with his sharp and irresistible wit, overwhelm her with his

raw, undiluted charm, and impress her with his third leg. What?! He has three legs.

TJ’s latest goal in life is to get Latisha to admit that she is madly in love with him.

Big Earl is TJ’s closest friend. He’s the only one TJ doesn’t bother trying to impress. TJ knows that Big E will always be there to back him up.

4

Big Earl

“Don’t sweat it, it’s all good.”

Big Earl (Big E) never gives a moment’s thought to how cool he is. He is simply Big E and he don't sweat the small stuff. In fact, Big Earl don’t sweat nothin’… He just takes it as it comes, at his own laid back pace. In his cool, good-naturedway, Big E manages to enjoy just about everything. He has never had a bad thought about anybody in his wholeEarl-life.

Big E is just about the only one on Funkotron who can put up with ToeJam on a daily basis. While others might not understand it, Big E actually looks up to ToeJam. Big Earl grew up next door to ToeJam and has been his homeboy since nursery school.

Earl could Rap before he could talk. His first words were, "Yo, What Up?" Between nap times, he and TJ used to put on Rap performances in the alley behind the nursery school. Earl seems innocent, but like Latisha, he's been around

the block.

Big Earl has a mountain of respect for Latisha, and thinks of her as his sister.

5

Latisha

“You can talk about it or you can just do it. Just don’t waste my time.”

Latisha has a long history of guys trying to put the moves on her. One thing they all learn is that no one --and that means no one--

messes with Latisha!

In addition to having a sharp mind, Latisha is also blessed with a hot bod and a wicked sense of rhythm. Latisha can bust

out some moves like nobody’s business, and she has that special grace of

someone who never worries about what other people think.

Latisha comes from a very wealthy family. But no one, not even TJ or Earl, is aware of this. It’s Latisha’s secret. Latisha is never quite sure why she hangs with TJ and Big E. Maybe it’s because Big E is about the only guy who never tried to make a move on her. Or, maybe it’s just that she finds being around Big E very comforting. In an odd way, she has even grown to like ToeJam and all of his annoying but harmless attention.

Latisha has a sharp wit, as does ToeJam, and although she’d never admit it, she enjoys being

challenged by him and would miss him if he wasn’t around.

Lamont

Lamont was born in a manger in a back alley of downtown Funkotron. What was a manger doing in a back alley of Funkotron? This remains a question to this day, but Lamont was born there nonetheless. Although Lamont’s mother says that Lamont was an immaculate conception, neighbors interviewed claim that this is highly unlikely given her active social calendar. The moment Lamont was born, a hush came over the land and a bright star appeared above the manger. Many wise Funkotronians bearing gifts followed the light of the star, but it turned out to be an airplane, and they all ended up at the airport in the next city over. Those who came upon Lamont were afraid to approach him. Some say it is because of his powerful presence and purity. Others say it is because he looked like a freaky little blue worm with huge bug eyes. Whatever the reason, it was clear that he was special.

As Lamont grew up he had an ever increasing sense that destiny was calling to him. “Lamont!” it would say. “Lamont!” Some believe this is why Lamont was always looking over his shoulder and shouting “WHAT!” at unexpected times. Lamont’s first crushing moments came when he discovered that his destiny was not going to lead him to become the top all time basketball player on Funkotron. It was crushing mainly because the basketball landed on him, and he had to be rushed to the hospital. The day that Lamont was released from the hospital, he happened to pass the Mall where they were holding a random drawing for prizes. First Prize was a new jet scooter, and so Lamont scribbled his name on a card and entered the drawing. He didn’t win the jet scooter, but he did win second prize, and this was to be crowned the new Funkopotamous, ruler of Planet Funkotron

and Original Source of all Funk in the Known Universe. Lamont was flabbergasted. He had never won anything in his life. He was presented with roses and his

new Funk crown and given the sacred Funk Album collection, which he would henceforth be responsible for. “Speech! Speech!” everyone cried. Unfortunately, all Lamont could think about

was the jet scooter that he had almost won, so after some tears, he just said... “Thanks.”

7

In the years that followed, Lamont grew into his role as Funkopotamous. Eventually, he came to believe that he was in fact the source of all Funk in the Known Universe. As it happens, some Funkotronians were skeptical of this, until the day Lamont made his guest appearance on the dance show Soul Bus. Lamont got so seriously down, and busted so many extreme Funk moves, that few Funkotronians could thereafter deny Lamont's rightful place as Funkopotamous.

The Anti Funk

This character is a complete mystery --even to his own family. If you want to learn more about theAnti-Funk,you will have to make it to the end of the game. Good luck.

GAMEPLAY

Structure and Progress

Keys

You’ll need to collect Keys in order to unlock Level Doors. You don’t need to collect all the Keys, but each Level Door requires a certain total, so if you don’t collect enough, you may need to go back into earlier Levels and get more Keys.

Level Doors

Level Doors are found throughout the Five Zones of the World. You will need Keys in order to unlock them and gain access to each of the Levels in each Zone. As you collect more and more Keys, you will be able to access higher Levels.

Karaoke Microphones

Inside many of the Levels are special Missions you will need to complete in order to earn Karaoke Microphones. These Microphones are needed in order to gain access to the Gate Battle located in each of the Zones.

Gate Battle Platforms

Using Presents

Presents are valuable and important to your quest! Collect Presents, buy Presents, steal Presents — and press the B button to access them through your Present Menu. Remember the Golden Rule: “To Die with many Presents in your inventory is to bring great shame upon the Funkopotamous”.

Completing Missions

Lamont has sent Agents from Funkotron down to Earth to help you on your quest. These Agents will send you on special Missions to Funkify certain Earthlings who are critical to the task at hand. To accomplish a Mission you must first find the Funkotronian agent in the patchwork Human suit. He will give you a package to deliver. Pay close attention to which Earthling you are searching for! You must find this Earthling,

14

Funkify them, and give them the package. In return, you’ll get a Karaoke Microphone. You will need these to gain access to Gate Battles!

The Funkotronian Agent and the Earthling will both show up on your map as soon as you have located them. If you get stuck, take a look at your To Do Checklist and make sure you haven’t missed a mission in one of the Levels.

Converting Earthlings

Now, you don’t always need to convert every Earthling, but it sure is fun to bring them over to the Ways of the Funk. Plus, by doing so you’ll earn valuable Points. Once converted, Earthlings are friendly. Talk to them to get Bucks, hints and help.

Talking to Earthlings

You can talk to any Earthling any time by facing them and pressing the little Black button (the one next to the little White button) on your controller. Earthlings that have shining Rays over their heads will drop some money for you if you talk to them.

Sneaking Up On Earthlings

Sometimes you will encounter Earthlings who are asleep. If you are careful, you can sneak up on them. A bubble over their head that says "Shhh!" means you'd better tiptoe. A stop sign means you'd better stop and wait for them to fall back asleep. If you can get close enough, shout at them by pressing the Black button to startle them awake. Occasionally, they will drop a Present.

Trick-or-Treating

Earthlings love costumes, and as far as they’re concerned, you’re wearing one. You can ring doorbells and Trick-or-Treat.Never mind that it’s not Halloween.

High Fives

If you're playing a two player game, you can face each other and press the Black button to share a High Five and share your Health.

Rhythm Matching

Rhythm Matching is a powerful way of converting Earthlings and earning Points. In fact, it is possibly the most potent “weapon” in the game. In

15

Rhythm Matching, you will see and hear a sequence of beats that you will need to play along with by pressing the X andY buttons. Nearby Earthlings will stop and dance, and each time you successfully match a sequence of beats, Funkify Notes will shoot out of you toward the Earthlings. The more challenging a sequence, the more Funk it creates and the more Earthlings you’ll convert. As your character goes up in Rank, you’ll be able to shoot out more and more notes, and by the time you reach the upper Ranks you will be able to convert a large group of dancing Earthlings all at the same time. You can tell whether you are close enough to Earthlings by the tiny dots that emanate from your body while Rhythm Matching.

As you get better at Rhythm Matching, the sequences will start to get more and more challenging. If you have trouble, they’ll become simpler.

Rhythm Matching has a few added benefits. You can stand still or walk around while Rhythm Matching. When there are no Earthlings around that need Funkification, matching rhythms will earn you points. Earthlings can’t attack you while you match, so it is a good way to pass through dangerous territory. Any Hidden Present, Hidden Earthling or Hidden Portal will pop out of hiding when they come within range. And, Funkify Notes won’t run away from you while you are matching, so they’re much easier to catch. Feel the Funk, baby!

Perfect this skill and you will definitely have a leg up on your way to achieving the Rank of Funklord!

Entering Elevators

Elevators are always found inside the Levels, and will take you out of the Level and back to the Zone.

Using Mailboxes

You can use Mailboxes to send off for valuable mail order Presents, which arrive instantly by Balloon. The number of Bucks that you currently have is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen. The cost of each Present for sale is displayed to the right of the Present’s name.

Promotions

As Lamont says, “Promotions make a big difference — and I mean BIG.” Earn Points to earn Promotions. You can check your Player Stats screen to see how many Points you need to reach the next Rank. Once you’ve earned enough Points, go see the Wiseman in the Carrot Suit. Every time you earn a new Rank you will receive new abilities. These include things like a longer life bar and higher Funk Fu belt levels. Remember that at the

16

end of the game, before you can face the Anti-Funk,you will need to have achieved at least the rank of Rapmaster! Tip: to earn additional points, be sure to do as many of theMini-Gamesas you can.

Saving Games

Every time you collect a Karaoke Microphone or retrieve one of the Sacred Albums of Funk, your progress will automatically be saved. You can also save your game at any time by going to the Pause Menu and selecting Save Game. You can’t save your game while playing a MiniGame or an Xbox Live Downloaded Level.

Two Player Games

You can start a two player game from the Main Menu, or a second player can join your game at any time by pressing the START button.

COLLECTABLE OBJECTS

Presents

You’ll find Presents all over the world left behind by Lamont’s dawg Santa Funk. Get used to checking your Present Menu (by pressing your B button) whenever you’re in trouble.

Locked Presents

On some Levels there will be Presents to “unlock”. When you find these Presents they will be on Pedestals. When you “unlock” a Present this means that it is available for use in the game. If you have any Presents in your Present Menu that are locked, they will have a lock over the

17

Present icon. If you wish to unlock this Present type, search through the Checklists of all of the Levels you have been though (by pressing the Start button, and then scrolling up or down) to see which Level that Locked Present on a Pedestal is on.

Risky Presents

Some Presents are Risky Presents. Risky Presents have a certain percent chance of backfiring. This probability is different for each player character. When a backfire occurs your Present gets treated as some random bad Present. If you wish to fix

a Risky Present you can use a “Fix Present” Present.

Unidentified and Mystery Presents

Sometimes Presents are Unidentified, and you won’t know what’s inside until you open them. You can ask the Wiseman in the Carrot Suit to tell you what’s inside, for a fee, or you can use an Identify Present Present.

Open Presents

You’ll find some open Presents on the ground. Some Presents you can find are High Tops, Spring Shoes, Laugh Blaster, Funk Rhythms and Icarus Wings, just to name a few.

Bucks

Money makes the world go ‘round.

Bucks will let you buy all kinds of things. You can pay tolls on some bridges, you can pay off the Wiseman to identify some of your Unidentified Presents for Two Bucks, buy Presents from the Mailbox,

buy Funkify Notes from the Gospel Choir, buy Sushi-To-Go,and if you’re

18

lucky,

you’ll find a Shopkeeper. He’s got the best Presents for sale.

Points

Points will help you to increase your Rank, which is essential to converting those pesky Earthlings.

Good Food

Good Food will keep your Health up, which keeps you from dying! Good Food varies from Fresh Pumpkin Pie to Fudge Brownie Sundae. There are different point values for each Food. You can also buy Sushi-To-Go from the Sushi Chef, or catch the Fey Baker for some Cake.

Bad Food

You do not want to eat this stuff if you’re ToeJam or Latisha! You’ll lose points. There’s everything from Stale Toast to Maggot Filled Egg Salad with Vomit Sauce. Mmm, mmm. But hey, if you’re Earl, he’ll eat anything and be happy — all Food is Good Food to Earl.

Keys

Keys will get you into sublevels.

You need keys!!

19

Karaoke Microphones

You need Karaoke Microphones to gain access to Gate Battles. Once you successfully win these Gate Battles, you’ll unlock other Zones

Extra Life Bugs

Every 100 of these little life bugs you collect, you’ll earn an extra life!

GENERAL FEATURES

Disco Ball

The spinning Disco Ball that floats above the heads of Earthlings lets you tell whether they’re Friendly or Nasty. Red means they’re Nasty, and Mad. Silver means they’re Friendly. Green means they have something to sell you. Shining Rays means they have something to say to you

— so talk with them by pressing your Black button.

20

Circles

Whenever you see a little shimmering purple circle on the ground, walk into it and press the A button. It’ll let you enter a Door, use a Mailbox, talk to an Earthling, or Trick or Treat.

Telepad

Whenever you see a little shimmering blue circle on the ground with a “Telepad” sign over it, walk into it and press the A button. The Telepad will take you back to the main plateau on the level.

Doors

You will find Doors throughout the various Zones. Some Doors require a certain number of Keys to enter, displayed above the Door. Other Doors require a Special Item to gain access.

Mini Game Platforms

You’ll find these Platforms locked away under chains in various parts of the Zones. You’ll need to collect a certain number of Keys, displayed above the Platform, in order to gain access.

21

Gate Battle

Platforms

There is one of these special Platforms in each Zone. You will need to collect a certain number of Karaoke Microphones in order to gain access to this special challenge. Defeating the Gate Battle will unlock another Zone.

Zone Gates

In each Zone are Zone Gates that will take you between the various Zones of the world. You will need to win a Gate Battle in order to unlock each of the Zone Gates.

Searchlights

Searchlights appear to show you where to go next. Go into Look Around Mode (by pressing the Left trigger) in order to spot Searchlights in the distance. They will show you the way to new Doors, MiniGame Platforms, Gate Battle Platforms and Zone Gates.

Secret Levels

In each of the Zones are Secret Levels to which you can gain access. But, you will need Special Items that can only be had by completing certain Missions in the various levels of the game.

22

Hidden Objects

Sometimes you will see little sparkles on the ground that give away the location of Hidden Objects. Use your Funk Fu (on the X button) to uncover them. Sometimes you’ll get a Present, sometimes an Earthling. When your Rank is high enough, you will hear a sound and feel a rumble when you are near Hidden Objects. This is your Sixth Sense.

Downloadable Content

Go online to Xbox Live and download cool new Playable Characters and Levels! You can use the Character Switch Platform to change characters. Go see Ahnold to gain access to the downloaded levels.

Lamont Help

Lamont may not be there with you in person, but he’s there in spirit and advice. Lamont’s Help Bot is there to guide you and give you useful information from time to time.

Secrets

There’s tons of secrets hidden throughout the game. For example, try dropping an Extra Bucks Present near a well in the Grassy Zone. You’re in for a surprise. You can learn about new secrets by talking with Earthlings and completing Missions.

23

Character Switch Platform

Sometimes you feel like an Earl, some times you don’t. You can use the Character Switch Platform,

found in each of the Zones, to switch between ToeJam, Big Earl and Latisha. Remember, each character has individual strengths and weaknesses, so learn to take advantage of all three.

THE WORLDS

Grassy

Rolling hills, babbling brooks, small villages and farms. Watch out for the Fat Man with his out of control lawn mower!

Urban

Bus stops, basketball courts, graffitiladen buildings and bridges. Watch out for the Insane Dentist — he doesn’t like using Novocain.

Desert

Sweeping dunes, oases, mesas and pueblos. Watch out for the Very Unfunky Country Singer out here.

24

Snow

Ice lakes, magnificent aurora borealis skies, and igloos. Watch out for the Yeti — he might just poke you with his sharpened pencil!

Water

Islands, beaches and palm trees galore. You’ll even see flamingos flap overhead. Watch out for the sexy Wahine babe in here — she’ll make you dance!

The Final

Encounter

If you make it far enough, you will do battle once and for all with the Evil Anti-Funk.

THE EARTHLINGS

You’ll encounter some of the most unfunky Earthlings you’ve ever imagined on your way to the Anti-Funk.

Ahnold

Feeling skinny yet? This guy will give you access to all of the goodies you’ve downloaded from Xbox Live.

Boogie Man

Boogie Men come out at night. They are invisible when they stand still. X-Rayglasses will help you see them.

25

Cheerleader

She may inadvertently whack you with her pom poms when doing a cheer. There are worse ways to die than this.

Chicken with Mortar

This chicken shoots her own eggs at you.

Construction Worker

Getting jiggled doesn’t hurt you but touching him hurts big time. Try jumping just as he starts to use his jackhammer.

Country Singer

Most Unfunky, his Country Western music fires blasts of Anti-Funkwhich knock your Funkify notes off of you.

Cow Ghost

You can’t see him until he’s near.

His cow spirit will possess you.

Crazed Shopper

She’ll take you out with her shopping cart.

Try to dodge her at the last second.

Cupid

Falling in love doesn’t hurt you — but it’s hard to walk straight, and you can walk on air.

Devil

He followed you back from you-know-where.

He can’t be converted, so don’t try.

26

Fans

These are wannabe Funkotronians. You know the type. If you like to gamble, give them a buck and ask for change.

Fat Man with Mower

This guy is like a bull. Dodge him at the last second.

Fey Baker

Catch him to get some cake worth 50 points of life!

Funkotronian Agent

He's not really an Earthling, but he’s got the supremely clever Earthling disguise on. He will give you secret Missions to complete.

Geek Brothers

These guys use their remote control robot orb. When it hits you it causes one of your Presents to be opened at random.

Gospel Choir

Buy Funkify Notes from the Choir. 3 Bucks gets you 3 Notes. Amen.

Insane Dentist

Sneak up on him and shout if you find him asleep. His drill is really painful.

Mailbox Monster

Mailboxes are often not what they seem.

These guys do lots of damage.

27

Medusa Baby
