It's strange...

Sometimes I can't remember my dreams, though I'm sure I saw them. Where do
these dreams go? But I remember one dream. As clearly as if it were
reflected in a mirror...

Phantomile is a world, someplace far, far away.

There is an old legend in Phantomile. it says that the energy from people's
dreams is gathered in the mythical Moon Kingdom and used to give shape to the
world. The legend says that this is the reason why we can't remember dreams
we know we've had.

Klonoa, who lived in the wind village Breezegale, was awakened one day by a
horrible nightmare vision of a flying ship crashing on Bell Hill, and a dark,
ominous shadow closing in overhead. Mysteriously, Klonoa could remember this
dream clearly even as time passed.

And then one day it happened. A flying ship really crashed on Bell Hill.

"It's just like my dream," Klonoa thought, as a moment of fear was overcome
by his overwhelming curiosity.

"Let's go, Klonoa!" cried Huepow, the Ring Spirit. Huepow had been Klonoa's
trusty friend since childhood.

Their hearts pounding with excitement, Klonoa and Huepow ran outside to see
what awaited them.

[ Page 5 ]------------------------------------------------------------------

Once upon a time, four spirits held sway over Phantomile - the Wind Spirit,
the Tree Spirit, the Water Spirit, and the Moon Spirit. The Moon Spirit
gathered the energy from people's dreams and used this energy to shape the
world. The other Spirits maintained peace in the world by sharing the
special powers of the wind, trees and water that were entrusted to each of

And then one day, the Dark Spirit started a rebellion. He was jealous of the
omnipotent power of the Moon Spirit to create anything in the universe. The
Spirits combined their strength and battled the Dark Spirit. Although the
Dark Spirit's awesome might overwhelmed the other spirits at first, he was
eventually overcome and hunted down by the forces of light. The war raged on
for 100 days and the Dark Spirit was imprisoned at the end of the war.

After the war, the Moon Spirit decided to disappear so that a war like this
would never happen again in the future. Now, the Moon Spirit will not appear
unless Wind Spirit, the Tree Spirit, and the Water Spirit all will the Spirit
to come forth. Thus, the power of dreams is forever hidden, far away in the
land of dreams.

Down: Face foreground.

Pressing the X button or the Triangle button makes Klonoa jump. *

If you hold down the X button or the Triangle button while Klonoa is coming
down from a jump, he flaps his ears and stays afloat in the air for a bit.
He can flap his ears like this once per jump. However, he can flap his ears
one more time after being hurt or after seperating from a TETON. But be
careful, he can't flap his ears while holding onto an enemy.

* These are the default controller settings. They can be changed in the
Options Screen (see page 8).

Klonoa can move left/right or face inward or outward while jumping. He can
also attack in the middle of a jump.

Press the X button or the Triangle button to jump. Holding down the X button
or the Triangle button while falling allows Klonoa to flap his ears and stay
afloat in the air.

[ Page 14 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
Pressing the Square button or the Circle button will fire a wind bullet from
Klonoa's ring. When this is done next to an enemy, Klonoa can grab and
inflate it. You can also attack enemies in the background or foreground.
You can inflate some giant enemies, but you won't be able to grab them. But
be careful. You can't inflate or grab bosses.

Press the Square/Circle button to fire the wind bullet. If the wind bullet
hits, you will grab the enemy. Pressing the Square/Circle button again
throws the enemy. The thrown enemy will either hit something in its way or
explode after flying some distance.

When you are holding onto an enemy, it is possible to jump twice as high by
jumping off of the enemy. Just press the X button or the Triangle button
while jumping or falling down to do a double jump.

This double jump allows Klonoa to jump higher than a normal jump. It is also
possible to kick the enemy downwards to attack enemies below. You can grab
another enemy in the middle of a double jump to jump even higher!

[ Page 15 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
Grab an enemy. Press the X/Triangle button to jump. While in the air, press
the X/Triangle button to jump again to do a double jump. The enemy will be
kicked downwards. You can use this technique to attack enemies below.


You'll encounter many things in the course of your adventure. Here we will
introduce just a few.

Fan Grass: This is a plant that blows a strong gust of wind upwards at
regular intervals. You can ride this wind to jump higher and reach tall
places you normally can't.

Gondolas: There are some that are always moving, some that move automatically
when Klonoa gets on, and others that are operated by some power.

Rail Car: A rail car starts moving automatically when Klonoa gets on. You
can move around on top of the rail car without worrying about falling off.

[ Page 16 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
Locked Doors: Locked doors open when you bump into one while holding a key.
One key is required for each door.

Leaves: Leaves are constantly buffeted by wind and are unstable. It's easy
to fall off of them, so be careful!

Switches: When you hit a switch with a wind bullet or throw an enemy at it,
its color changes and something happens.

Jump Platform: You can jump really high if you press the jump button at just
the right moment while stepping on one of these.

Rolling Logs: These turn slowly, so you can fall down if you stop. You can
jump to adjust your position on the log.

[ Page 17 ]------------------------------------------------------------------

There are many items to help Klonoa on his adventure.

Klonoa can pick these items up by touching them.

Dream Stone (small): You can earn 1 Klonoa when you gather 100 stones.

Dream Stone (large): Worth 5 small Dream Stones.

Key: There are doors you can't open without a key.

Heart (small): Klonoa's health is restored by 1 level.

Heart (large): Klonoa's health is restored by 3 levels.

1 UP: Increases the number of Klonoas you have by 1.

[ Page 18 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
Klonoa can pick these items up by hitting them with either a wind bullet or a
captured enemy.

Phantomillian Prisoners: These spheres contain Phantomillians imprisoned in
nightmares. A disruption in the balance of dreams in the world caused
nightmares to begin dreaming their own dreams. The dreaming in turn trapped
hapless Phantomillians. The number of people you rescue will effect how
music is played back in the world map that is shown when you clear a part.

Memory Clock: If Klonoa passes out, he can start at the last place where he
picked up a clock. All items that Klonoa had at that point will be restored.

Ngapoko's Egg: When you hit the egg with a captured enemy, something pops

Once upon a time, there was a Mirror Spirit who loved to play tricks. The
spirit would take things and put them in front of the mirror. This confused
people, since it made things look twice as large. Then one day, the Mirror
Spirit made a reflection of the sun that was twice as large, and drove away
night. People couldn't sleep or dream because there was no more night. The
spirit had gone too far this time with its tricks. The spirits were so angry
that they imprisoned the Mirror Spirit.

When you hit this sphere, the Mirror Spirit sppears. While the spirit is
visible, Dream Stones will sparkle. Each stone you pick up in this state is
worth twice as much as a regular stone.

[ Page 19 ]------------------------------------------------------------------

What kind of adventures await Klonoa on his journey? We'll introduce just a
few here.

VISION 1-1: THE BEGINNINGS OF GALE / Breezegale, the wind village
Klonoa and Huepow begin their adventure by heading toward the fallen flying
ship on Bell Hill. On the way, they meet a character named Balue the mason,
who tells them about the legend of Phantomile.

Go through the mine of shining stones and onto Bell Hill. Use the wind to
jump over gaps in the path on the way. There are strange creatures up on the
hill, and they sure don't look friendly!

VISION 2-1: DEEP IN THE DYING FOREST / Forlock, the tree village
The two hurry to the tree village to warn Granny of the danger, but Joka
reached her first! New types of monsters appear one after another, so be

[ Page 20 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
Klonoa and Huepow head toward the water kingdom because their path through
the dying forest was blocked. After climbing up a huge waterfall, a voice
calls from somewhere, just as they reach Crustacean Castle.

VISION 3-1: REBIRTH OF THE FOREST / Forlock, the tree village
Klonoa and Huepow return to the tree village to see Granny. If you find a
tied up forest guard along the way, be sure to rescue him.

VISION 3-2: THE STOPPED GEAR / The tree mansion of machinery
Granny's house is full of machinery! You have to steer clear of all the
obstacles before reaching the top of her mansion. The passageways are
confusing, so don't get lost.

There's a lot more to Klonoa's adventure. A fantastic surprise awaits you at
the end. Do your best!

[ Page 21 ]------------------------------------------------------------------

The inhabitants of Phantomile are simple, peace-loving people.

A happy creature living in Breezegale, the wind village. He's known for his
long ears and blue hat. He's always running around the fields with his
childhood friend, Huepow.

A spirit who lives inside a ring that fell from the sky one day. Huepow
normally stays inside the ring and helps Klonoa use the power of the wind.

The legendary Diva who can sing the Song of Rebirth to give life back to the
world again. She is being chased by Ghadius, the dark spirit, who wants to
corrupt her powers.

[ Page 22 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
Balue used to be Head Mason at the Gunston Mine. He believes in the legend
of the Diva Lephise. He says it's his ultimate dream to go to the Moon
Kingdom, where she lives. He's a hopeless romantic.

King Seadoph is king of Jugpot, the water kingdom, Phantomile's only
remaining kingdom. He is guardian of the Elemental Spring, and a keeper of
some of Phantomile's secrets.

Granny is the elder of Forlock, the tree village. She lives in a mansion
full of machinery nestled atop the branches of the sacred Great Tree that
stands tall in the middle of her village. Like Grandpa, she is someone who
knows some of the world's secrets.

Grandpa is the elder of the wind village. He is Klonoa's guardian. A
natural scholar, he has vast knowledge of Phantomile's history and legend.

[ Page 23 ]------------------------------------------------------------------

Joka is a loyal servant of Ghadius who just tries his best to please him.
All he really wants is to be recognized by Ghadius. Still, something about
him just doesn't seem right. He can harness the powers of darkness a little

A beast with savage strength, He can create dangerous shockwaves and ripples
on the ground. His weakness might be his behind.

Pamela is a giant fish who guards the Crustacean Castle of Jugpot, the water
kingdom. Pamela and King Seadoph are both spellbound and manipulated by
Ghadius. But, they are really not evil at all. Bump the king into her to
wake both of them up out of their curse.

Ghadius is a dark spirit who awoke from his long slumber. His imprisonment
in sleep was a punishment that was decreed by the spirits. Ghadius plans to
turn Phantomile into a world of nightmares. He controls the world of
darkness and has the ability to warp space.

[ Page 24 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
These cute critters just wander around the paths haplessly.

Zippoe always tries to chase and ram into Klonoa whenever he sees him.

Spiker is not affected at all by Klonoa's attacks, so the only thing you can
do is to avoid him.

He drifts about in the air and floats even higher when you inflate him.

The wind bullet merely bounces off of this Moo. Throw other enemies at it to
break its armor first.

Boin comes toward you by bouncing along, but be careful!

[ Page 25 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
This Moo has a shield, so you can't attack from the front. Jump over it to
get to its undefended backside.

Mewmew scatters balls with thorns sticking out of them. Jump over the balls
to avoid them and then move in closer to attack quickly!

This Moo has absorbed Dream Stones and transformed into a giant. If you ram
an enemy into it, sometimes Dream Stones will pop out.

After a certain amount of time passes, this dangerous enemy explodes! Be
careful when it starts to glow! When a Boomie hits a wall, it falls straight
down and blows up after a set time.

Shoots out thorny balls from its rear end. Jump over its thorny balls and

Glibz is a double-gun toting enemy who just loves to shoot. Attack him in
between rounds while he's grinning.

Shellie is usually protected by its hard shell. Attack it when you can see
its face.

[ Page 26 ]------------------------------------------------------------------

There are items that are invisible until Klonoa touches them. Make sure to
search for these invisible goodies. Hard to see something that's invisible,
you say? Dont fret, because you can see their shadows. Try jumping on a
suspicious-looking shadow when you see one on the ground.

[ Page 27 ]------------------------------------------------------------------
You cannot succeed in the game without being resourceful with your enemies.
For instance, the floating TETON is useful for reaching high places, and
Boomie, who explodes after a certain time, is indispensible for solving
puzzles that involve timing!

Also, try throwing enemies against places that have an X mark on them. This
might open paths for you and help you earn valuable items.

Don't forget to rescue the poor Phantomillians that are trapped inside
nightmares!!! There are 6 Phantomillians per each Vision.

If you are able to save everyone in each part, something will happen. You
can find out what this secret is after you finish the game!!
