Trivia and Story Mode

You have two minutes to answer the allotted number of questions. You are graded from "A+" (95% correct) to "F" (below 50% correct). If you run out of time, you will not receive any grade higher than a "C".

Mission Mode

Each mission has a specific objective to complete. Objectives are displayed on the menu.



This game allows you to save your progress via DLDI. On first play, the game will create the save file "gtc2_sav.sav" on your flash cart. If you find that saving does not work, please try manually patching the game with the appropriate DLDI patch for your flash cart. If it still doesn't work, you're out of luck. Please choose the "continue without saving" option on the initial menu, which will let you play the game in any case.
