1. GAME STORY
Amagon, the most decorated Marine, was assigned a mission by his
commander to investigate a strange, moster-infested South Pacific
island, from which no man has ever returned alive.
With a machine gun as his only weapon, he took off by plane and
crash-landed on the island's beachhead.
Amagon, with his unique ability to transform into the huge Megagon,
there begins his mission to become first to conquer the island.
See and experience the amazing adventures of our hero, Amagon!!
His rescue ship is waiting at the other side of the island.

5. HOW TO PLAY
The object of the game is to help Amagon destroy his enemies and
safely find his way to the ship.
The scene will be cleared if Amagon defeats a certain number of
monsters or destroys the giant demon waiting at the end of the scene.
At the beginning of the game, Amagon has 300 bullets for his machine
gun. The remaining bullets are displayed at the top center of the screen.
If he runs out of bullets, he has to fend off monsters using his gun as a club.
Fortunately, if he defeats some of his enemies, he can get extra bullet
magazines. Thus, you have to look for and get bullets while shooting
Also, you have to look for the Mega-key, which enables him to
transform into Megagon. When you encounter a giant monster or fight
through many enemies, you'd better transform to Megagon because
Megagon can survive if he is hit by a weapon or part of an enemy.
The game begins with four Amagon characters. Amagon will be
eliminated if he is hit by a weapon or part of an enemy. And even
Megagon will be eliminated if he falls into a river or valley. The
number of Amagons left is displayed in the upper right part of the
screen. If all four are eliminated, the game ends, but if you secure
a one-up item, you can add one more Amagon.
There is no time limit, so you should proceed with the game
considering bullet consumption and the right timing of Amagon's
6. ZONES AND CONTINUE MODE
The island to be conquered has six zones, each of which is divided
into two scenes, for a total of 12 scenes per game.
(Picture of the C-shaped island)
Zone 1-1 PLAIN (top of the island)
Zone 2-1 JUNGLE (under the plain)
Zone 3-1 RIVER (middle of the island)
Zone 4-1 RAIN FOREST (under the river)
Zone 5-1 ROCKY MOUNTAIN (bottom of the island)
Zone 6-1 BEACH (beside the mountain)
Continue mode cannot be used until Zone 4
If all four Amagons are eliminated at Zone 4 or afterwards, you can choose
any zone except Zone 1, which has already cleared. Select a zone by
pressing the Select button.
In Continue mode, all scores and bullets are carried over to the next scene,
but you cannot carry over Amagon's stock.
7. WEAPONS USED BY AMAGON AND MEGAGON
(Picture of a little man holding a machine gun)
Machine Gun: 1 point for damage to a monster.
(Picture of that same little man giving a stroke of machine gun)
Gunstock: 1 point for damage to a monster.
(Picture of Hulk(!) giving a punch)
Megapunch: 8 points for damage to a monster.
(Picture of Hulk launching a laser beam with his torso)
Laser Beam: 16 points for damage to a monster.
8. HOW TO TRANSFORM INTO MEGAGON
There are two conditions necessary to allow transformation into Megagon:
First, you should look for and get the Mega-key
Second, you must have at least 5,000 points
If you obtain both, the [GO] sign will be displayed at the right of the
bullet counter at the top center of the screen. Then you can transform
him into Megagon by pressing the select button any time you want.
But if Amagon is eliminated before the transformation can take
place, you will lose the Mega-key.

7. MEGAGON'S FEATURES (NFM: the number should be 9 instead of 7)
Megagon has a strength value measured in Mega-points. The score
points that you have at the transformation will be converted into
Mega-points, calculated at 5000 points to one Mega-point. At this
time the converted score points will be deducted from your score.
The maximum Mega-points obtainable is 14 (70,000 points).
When Amagon transforms into Megagon, the Mega-points will replace
the bullet counter at the top center of the screen.
If Megagon is hit by a weapon or part of a monster, he is not
eliminated but loses his Mega-points one at a time. Also, when he
generates a laser beam, he consumes one Mega-point.
If Megagon has no Mega-points, he cannot generate a laser beam.
And, if at that time, he is injured by monsters, he will shrink to
his normal size.
Finally, when Megagon clears a scene, the remaining Mega-points
will be converted and added to your score.

one of these monsters, one of the items will appear and you
can run up to secure it. But remember, if Megagon punches
one of these monsters away, no item will appear.
