PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE SEPARATE HEALTH AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS BOOKLET INCLUDED WITH THIS PRODUCT BEFORE USING YOUR NINTENDO® HARDWARE SYSTEM, GAME CARD OR ACCESSORY. THIS BOOKLET CONTAINS IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY INFORMATION.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: READ THE FOLLOWING WARNINGS BEFORE YOU OR YOUR CHILD PLAY VIDEO GAMES.

WARNING - Seizures

Some people (about 1 in 4000) may have seizures or blackouts triggered by light flashes or patterns, such as while watching TV or playing video games, even if they have never had a seizure before.

Anyone who has had a seizure, loss of awareness, or other symptom linked to an epileptic condition should consult a doctor before playing a video game.

Parents should watch when their children play video games. Stop playing and consult a doctor if you or your child have any of the following symptoms:

Convulsions

Eye or muscle twitching

Loss of awareness

Altered vision

Involuntary movements

Disorientation

To reduce the likelihood of a seizure when playing video games:

1.Sit or stand as far from the screen as possible.

2.Play video games on the smallest available television screen.

3.Do not play if you are tired or need sleep.

4.Play in a well-litroom.

5.Take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour.

WARNING - Radio Frequency Interference

The Nintendo DS can emit radio waves that can affect the operation of nearby electronics, including cardiac pacemakers.

Do not operate the Nintendo DS within 9 inches of a pacemaker while using the wireless feature.

If you have a pacemaker or other implanted medical device, do not use the wireless feature of the Nintendo DS without first consulting your doctor or the manufacturer of your medical device.

Observe and follow all regulations and rules regarding use of wireless devices in locations such as hospitals, airports, and on board aircraft. Operation in those locations may interfere with or cause malfunctions of equipment, with resulting injuries to persons or damage to property.

WARNING - Repetitive Motion Injuries and Eyestrain

Playing video games can make your muscles, joints, skin or eyes hurt after a few hours. Follow these instructions to avoid problems such as tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, skin irritation or eyestrain:

Avoid excessive play. It is recommended that parents monitor their children for appropriate play.

Take a 10 to 15 minute break every hour, even if you don't think you need it.

When using the stylus, you do not need to grip it tightly or press it hard against the screen. Doing so may cause fatigue or discomfort.

If your hands, wrists, arms or eyes become tired or sore while playing, stop and rest them for several hours before playing again.

If you continue to have sore hands, wrists, arms or eyes during or after play, stop playing and see a doctor.

WARNING - Battery Leakage

The Nintendo DS contains a rechargeable lithium ion battery pack. Leakage of ingredients contained within the battery pack, or the combustion products of the ingredients, can cause personal injury as well as damage to your Nintendo DS.

If battery leakage occurs, avoid contact with skin. If contact occurs, immediately wash thoroughly with soap and water. If liquid leaking from a battery pack comes into contact with your eyes, immediately flush thoroughly with water and see a doctor.

To avoid battery leakage:

Do not expose battery to excessive physical shock, vibration, or liquids.

Do not disassemble, attempt to repair or deform the battery.

Do not dispose of battery pack in a fire.

Do not touch the terminals of the battery, or cause a short between the terminals with a metal object.

Do not peel or damage the battery label.

Meteos: Disney Magic is played with your Nintendo DS system turned sideways. If you’reright-handed,play the default way with the bottom screen (Touch Screen) on your right and the top screen on your left. Or switch toleft-handedmode with the bottom screen (Touch Screen) on your left and the top screen on your right by selecting Options on the Main menu. Select Handedness and then click on Left. Flip your Nintendo DS around and you’re ready to play!

Make your selections on the Touch Screen and then check the top screen to see an explanation. Medals and high scores will be saved. Once you quit out of story mode, you will have to start from the beginning to reach the stage you were on.

Once you’re in a game screen, use your stylus to select and drag blocks across the screen. Match three of the same blocks and a rocket-propelledboost will send all the blocks you selected and the ones above them into the air.

Playing the Game

Play by using your stylus to slide the stacked blocks one at a time up and down or right and left. Match three or more of the same block vertically or horizontally to launch the blocks upward. If the blocks get launched all the way to the top of the screen, they turn into magical abilities that can help your Disney friends.

The more blocks you try to launch, the heavier they get, and it gets harder to launch them off the screen. Once blocks have been launched into the air, try lining up even more blocks to make them all shoot up higher. If you line up rows of matching blocks while other blocks are already in flight, the whole stack launches even farther!

SPECIAL GAUGE

You can use your special ability to help clear the screen even faster. Wait until the Special Gauge is full, and then click the gauge to launch your special ability!

Special Blocks

Wild Blocks

Wild Blocks can be used as a substitute for any other block, like the Joker in a deck of cards. Move a Wild Block next to two blocks that are the same and all three blocks will launch into the air!

Rocket Blocks

Double click a Rocket Block and you’ll launch three blocks in a row – the Rocket Block and the blocks on either side of it, no matter if they’re the same or not.

Replacing Blocks

Double click a Replacing Block to change all the blocks of a single color into a different color! If you use Replacing Blocks right, you can launch lots of blocks with ease!

Special abilities

To use Special Abilities, wait for your Special Gauge to get filled up. The gauge fills as you play through the game. When it’s full, touch the gauge to use one of three Special Abilities.

In other modes, you will be given the option to choose which one to use.

Nitro Boost

Touch the Special Gauge to activate Nitro Boost and your blocks will launch with much more force. Watch out for the ‘B’ to appear on the Special Gauge.

Slow Mode

When you activate Slow Mode, the blocks move a lot slower so you can match more of them. Watch out for the ‘S’ to appear on the Special Gauge.

Horizontal Block Movement

On the levels where you can’t move the blocks horizontally (in Expert difficulty), activate this Special Ability to move the blocks side to side. Watch out for the ‘H’ to appear on the Special Gauge.
