Continuing the articles on the Master Club, Today I show the Tec Toy tips about the game Alex Kidd in Miracle World from the Master System, that came in the memory of the Master System II. The tips were sent in responses to my first and second letters to the Tec Toy.
In both letters, I got the same attachment tips, printed on two sheets of solid form with dot matrix printer,. I believe that they already had the files ready tips in WordStar or some other editor and printed on demand as the letters asking arriving tips. Interestingly the individual and personalized response of two cards (first and second) apparently were not printed, but typed.
I think it's pretty cool that the Tec Toy had with customers, answering the letters in a personalized manner, typing (without the possibility of copying and pasting), printing tips, sending it by mail, etc. I think it unlikely that I would have the same attention by sending a letter to Sony or Microsoft today.
In the booklet of tips is a small sheet of the game, the plot, the name of 11 worlds and then the tips. The first is on CONTINUE, that could be “bought” with 400 plateaus using a sequence in the GAME OVER screen. Sega really did not make this game, even with CONTINUE he was still very difficult, it was not easy to 400 plateaus left, and they could still be missed when buying an item in another part of the game. Another tip was about the secret passage which was under the first octopus, com direito à um erro ortográfico (“precione”) 🙂
Na segunda página há a dica de pegar a carta dirigida ao Reino de Nibana no primeiro castelo e entrega-la ao rei no segundo castelo para receber a Pedra Hirotta. Na Pedra Hirotta temos a sequência de elementos necessários para terminar o jogo no terceiro castelo. O folheto também traz a sequência da Pedra Hirotta para o caso de vacilarmos e não pegá-la. Há também a estratégia para ganhar do Janken, o grande, que é o último chefe.
Por fim, há a sequência de pedra, papel ou tesoura para ganhar no Janken-Po dos chefes durante o jogo. O folheto não menciona, mas essa sequência só vale na primeira partida após ligar o console. If you press the RESET or carry a GAME OVER and start again, the sequence changes. It took me a while to draw it and did not understand why the sequence did not work. After deducting just and even I confirmed this with the Tec Toy in third card, that I will show here in Skooter Blog. Apparently they use a pseudo-random sequence that starts when you turn on the console, always with the same seed.
Check out the two pages of scanned brochure tips:
