Your GAME BOY now takes you to a new realm-the open seas! With Radar Mission,
you'll be able to play two completely different games: GAME A is a strategic
battle against the enemy fleet (good thing you have radar!) GAME B is a fast
action torpedo game where you're sure to end up all wet if you're not
Radar Mission is twice as fun in the 2 PLAYER mode. Grab a friend, a Game
Link cable, another GAME BOY and another Radar Mission Game Pak for head to
head intense naval confrontations!

How to select game A or B
(1) Before Starting Play
Correctly insert the Game Pak into the GAME BOY. After you turn the power ON,
"Nintendo" will appear on the screen, followed by the title sequence.
(2) Title Screen
When the title screen is displayed, you can select GAME A or B, or a 1 PLAYER

Control Pad. Select a 1 PLAYER or 2 PLAYER game using the LEFT/RIGHT arrows

You cannot select a 2 PLAYER game if the Game Link cable is not connected.

HOW TO PLAY GAME A
In GAME A, you must strategically place your ships and try to figure out
where the enemy has placed theirs. Whoever sinks the other team's ships first
wins! Here's how to play:
(1) The Option Screen
Use the Control Pad to move the cursor and the A Button to change the
GRID You can change the size of your grid to 8x8, 10x10, or 12x12. The
larger the grid size is, the harder it will be for the enemy to find
AIRCRAFT After a certain amount of turns, if the aircraft carrier on a side
is not destroyed, an airplane will be launched. This plane will
then circle around the aircraft carrier.
NEAR MISS If your shot is one space to the left, right, top or bottom of a
ship, you will hear a special sound and see a large splash.
LUCKY SHOT Lucky stars are located somewhere on the grid. If you hit one,
you will get a special attacking power for your next turn.
WHITE STAR You can attack 5 squares at once. (In a 12x12 grid, you can
attack 9 squares at once.)
BLACK STAR Your shot will destroy the ship that it hits and destroy all
ships touching it. (You cannot do this in an 8x8 grid 2 PLAYER
game or in the first stage of an 8x8 1 PLAYER game. This special
power does not work on enemy aircraft.)
- At the end of the game, press the B Button to see where the lucky stars

In a 1 PLAYER game, you will always get to go first.
Move the cursor to your desired attacking point on the grid and press the A
Button to shoot. During the attack phase, you can review the status of your
ships by pressing the B Button or the SELECT Button. On the right side of the
screen you'll see a picture of the enemy's initial fleet. Below that is a
display that shows how many of those ships are still afloat.
On this screen, you can watch as the enemy attacks you. In a 2 PLAYER game
you should always by to fake out your opponent.
After one attack and one defense phase has ended, it is called one turn. The
first to destroy the other fleet is the winner.

Playing Against The Computer
In a 1 PLAYER game, you must defeat the computer three times to claim
ultimate victory. With each round you win, you get closer to enemy
headquarters. At each level the computer controlled enemy will come at you
with new fighting power. From the second battle onward, only one of your
destroyed ships will be repaired at the end of each round. (When only
aircraft remain, your aircraft carrier will be repaired.)
