TUTORIAL/CHARACTER DIALOGUE SAMPLES
LEVEL 1 (TUTORIAL)
CHAZZ: SHUFFLE MY DECK! Our casino's crawling with alien lifeforms! There's only one way to stop them..
CHAZZ: Fabulous MAGIC! HA HAA!!
(A Few Rounds Later...)
CHAZZ: Zander! There you are, my lowliest of assistants!
ZANDER: Chazz? Oh. You're… still alive.
CHAZZ: Naturally! Stand back, my paltry pupil! My magic will defend us from these foul invaders!
CHAZZ: Uh… just as soon as I remember how this whole "battle" thing works…
ZANDER: ...Sigh. Just tap the spin button, Chazz.
CHAZZ: HA HAA!! I remember now-- I just need to tap the spin button!
ZANDER: Great. You're a genius. And look, there's an alien. Match 3 symbols and the slot machine's magic will attack it.
ZANDER: Oh look, the blue bar filled up. That'll happen whenever you defeat an alien.
CHAZZ: You mean my "FABULOUS BAR"?
ZANDER: Whatever. You'll also get... "Fabulous Points" every time you hit the Spin button. Fill the blue bar to Level Up.
CHAZZ: How FABULOUSLY exciting!
(A Few More Rounds Pass...)
CHAZZ: SPIN MY REELS, they're still coming! Maybe they're here for my autograph?
ZANDER: Yeah, sure. That's definitely it. Good work, super-sleuth. Just don't let them reach the first reel of the slot machine or they'll start to attack you.
ZANDER: Only one row of aliens will move with each spin. Watch the lights on their heads to see which row will go next.
CHAZZ: But of course! Fear not, my lovely Las Vegas… CHAZZ FABULOUS is here to save the day!
CHAZZ: Uh… Zander, those card symbols… Were those there before?
ZANDER: No, Chazz. When you Level Up, you'll unlock new symbols and special features.
ZANDER: When you make matches with special symbols, like those cards, you'll perform stronger attacks and earn more tokens.
CHAZZ: Marvelous! My magic never ceases to amaze me!
CHAZZ: Oooh, Zander! Look what just popped out of the slot machine!
ZANDER: Yeah, Chazz. That happens whenever star symbols appear on the reels. Collecting stars is another way to fill your Fabulous Bar.
ZANDER: Go ahead and tap on the star to collect it. No rush, it's not like we're being invaded or anything.
CHAZZ: Zander! What is that FABULOUS thing in the corner?
ZANDER: That's your magic WILD chip, remember?
CHAZZ: Why, of course! And… it's… a good thing? Yes?
ZANDER: Yes, Chazz. Try dragging it off the shelf and onto the reels.
ZANDER: A chip's magic won't activate until you spin the reels. Once you've got it where you want it, tap the spin button.
ZANDER: See that? The chip turned "WILD." A WILD will match with any other symbol.
ZANDER: And, uh… you do know that you can tap that chip to pick it up, right?
CHAZZ: ROLL MY DICE! They just keep coming! Stand back, Zander-- I must summon even more FABULOUSNESS!
ZANDER: Great. You have two more reels now, but remember: you can only create matches from left to right.
CHAZZ: HA HAA, silly Zander! As long as I'm winning, I don't need to know how this stuff works!
ZANDER: I'm assuming you remember how to change your bet… right?
CHAZZ: Oh, Zander. I admire your ability to joke, even in the heat of battle! So... changing a bet. Let's see, uh...
ZANDER: SIIIGH. Use this button, Chazz. Tap on it to cycle through bets.
ZANDER: You're now betting 5 tokens per spin. The bet button also changes how many lines are in play.
ZANDER: See? Now you can make diagonal matches. The colored lines show the ways your symbols can be matched
CHAZZ: How undeniably FABULOUS!!
ZANDER: Higher bets also MULTIPLY your winnings.. just remember that each spin costs more tokens.
ZANDER: Always watch your bank and pay attention to what you're betting. Think you can handle all that?
CHAZZ: COUNT MY CARDS! It's a new chip! Mother always said I was as lucky as I am handsome!
ZANDER: I hope you're aware that different chip types will cast unique spells. Drag that Freeze Chip onto the reels.
CHAZZ: Oooh, how FABULOUSLY pretty!
ZANDER: Focus, Chazz. This chip freezes aliens AND holds three symbols for an extra spin. Study the reels and plan your moves.
CHAZZ: HA HAA! Oh, Zander. Everyone knows how the ice thingy works!
ZANDER: You are just... the worst.
CHAZZ: Oooh, another new chip thingy!
ZANDER: Chazz… I have to hand it to you. The fact that you've survived this long is genuinely impressive.
CHAZZ: HA HAA! But of course! They don't call me the "Dazzling Jewel of Vegas" for nothing!
ZANDER: Well, you're partially right. They certainly don't call you that.
CHAZZ: So, let's see… Maybe if I put this new chip next to one of these alien guys…
CHAZZ: Oh my! How FABULOUSLY fierce!
