And Now a Word from Nintendo in 1991

The following letter may be about as canned as could be, but I’ll never forget Mr. Stephenson’s wise Battletoads protip:

July 29, 1991

Dear Joseph,

Thanks for sharing your great tip with us! Our Game Play Counselors enjoy reading about the discoveries players make. Every week re receive thousands of hints from readers all over the country, so choosing only a few to print in the magazine is a difficult task.

Thanks also for sending your super artwork. We love to see our readers’ creativity. We’ve forwarded your artwork to our Publications department. Since we receive hundreds of drawings each month, we can only print a few samples from talented fans like you. Keep watching Nintendo Power to see if your tip or artwork is selected for the magazine.

Read on for tips that will give your scores an energy boost. We know that even Power Players need a jump start now and then!

The Turbo Tunnel is one of the most difficult sections in Battle Toads. To conquer it, practice jumping and landing in the middle of the islands. It requires excellent timing and patience. If you have a controller with Slow Motion, you might want to try using that feature. Keep working at it, though. I’m sure you can make it!

Good luck, Joseph! For more game play help, call our Game Play Counselors at 1-206-885-7529 between 4 a.m. and midnight Pacific time, Monday through Saturday, or 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

NINTENDO OF AMERICA INC.
