How to play (complete explanation)

How to play (very short version):
Waimanu should squash the evil Wekas pushing blocks against them. He also earn lots of points lining up the three 'diamond' blocks. Walls will vibrate if hit, and will stun Wekas.
- D-pad to move our little penguin around
- A to push/break blocks and to hit walls
- B to use a bonus (if you picked up one of them... read the complete explanation about bonuses...)
- START to pause the game to let your fingers rest if needed

How to play (complete explanation)

The game has been tested on hardware (on GBA / GBA SP / GBA Micro / NDS Lite [slot 2]) with both SuperCard and M3 cards. It runs also on latest no$gba/no$debug emulators.

... and if you spot some bugs ...

Waimanu Grinding Blocks Adventure has been released on July 8 2013 and it's been posted here and on our blog almost on the same moment, and we didn't release any further update since then, simply because we didn't find any bug (...well, so far, at least!!!).
Of course it is a retro-port of Waimanu Daring Slides that we did in 2010 for the DS but it's not simply a recompilation of sources. And it's not even simply that the DS has two screens while the GBA has only one. A lot of code has been rewritten from scratch, which includes creating the GBAdv library (here's the documentation and the source for everyone interested).
