Meanwhile, on board the spaceship Vulture, Professor T. Bird and the Battletoads - Rash, Zitz and Pimple - are escorting the Princess Angelica back to her home planet, where her father, the Terran Emperor, awaits her safe arrival. Along the way, Pimple, the biggest Battletoad, takes Angelica out for a cruise in the Toadster to a nearby Leisure Station. Pimple and Angelica burn space, but the Dark Queen ambushes them before they can get there. Luckily, Pimple manages to send out a distress signal before the Toadster is gobbled up and carried away to Ragnarok's World, the Dark Queen's planet... So, there's the situation, 'toad: the Dark Queen's kidnapped the Princess Angelica and your best buddy Pimple - what're ya gonna do about it?! You're gonna get real MAD, that's what you're gonna do - and then you're gonna get EVEN! Professor Bird's gonna set you down on Ragnarok, but from there it's up to you. You've got a long way to go, 'toad, thru ice and fire and nightmares so terrible you don't even want to imagine 'em - thru a monstrous Gargantua and ultimately to the Tower of Shadows, where the Dark Queen awaits you. Have you got the guts, 'toad? We'll soon see, one way or another... --- [PAGE 3] CONTROLLING THE ACTION Up Down Left Right Double-click left or right to run and to access smash hits (along with Button B) Select = Select Players Start = Start Game/Pause Game Button A = Jump Button B = Action --- [PAGE 4] HOW TO PLAY As soon as the spaceship Vulture lowers the Battletoads down to Ragnarok's World, your 'toadally awesome rescue mission begins. So hit the ground running. Awaiting your arrival are endless canyons, dark holes, a terrifying tunnel, an arctic cavern, a scalding inferno and much more! Each filled with monstrous baddies and dangerous obstacles. --- [PAGE 5] Baddies are the Dark Queen's army of menacing villians, and they're gonna try and stop you from reaching the Tower of Shadows, where she holds Pimple and Angelica captive. Obstacles are the deadly weapons which she has carefully hidden to catch you completely off guard. Advancing to the next level requires defeating all of the baddies in your current level and avoiding all of the obstacles. --- [PAGE 6] But be careful, they like to hit back. And if you're hit too many times, you're as good as gone, 'toad! 'Cuz each Battletoad has a limited life span. Luckily, you have a series of mega-powerful punches, slams and kicks at your disposal, which only a Battletoad can activate. Also, certain objects may be picked up along the way and used as weapons. For a little extra energy, try munching on some nice, juicy flies. --- [PAGE 7] While most of your fighting will be done on 'toad-foot, certain levels require expert racing skills. In these areas, check out the high performance Speed Bike, Jet Turbo and Space Board! Once you finally reach the Tower of Shadows, the ultimate showdown begins. Here the Dark Queen will use every means possible to keep you from getting your hands on Pimple and Angelica.

Watch out for its beak, it packs one heck of a peck! --- [PAGE 12] *General Slaughter* - One of the Dark Queen's least intelligent commanders. He always uses his head, if only as a weapon.
