A MESSAGE FROM S.H.U.S.H.!
"Ah, good to see you again Darkwing. I'm afraid that S.H.U.S.H. is once again
in need of your unique talents. A mysterious crime wave has swept across our
fair city. We believe that these crimes are the work of that notorious
criminal organization F.O.W.L.!"
"The Liquidator, Quackerjack, Wolfduck and other F.O.W.L. agents have been
looting various parts of the city. These robberies may be part of a larger
plan by F.O.W.L. to seize control of St. Canard. Do whatever you think is
necessary to retrieve the loot and bring these fiends to justice. The fate
of the city is in your hands. Good Luck, Darkwing."
CONTROLLING DARKWING DUCK
To move Darkwing right or left: Press the control pad right or left.
To use the cape shield: Press up on the control pad.
To jump: Press the A button.
To duck: Press down on the control pad.
To fire Darkwing's gas gun: Press the B button.
To switch to special gas: Press the SELECT button.
To pause the game and see
the status screen: Press the START button.
LET'S GET DANGEROUS
It's crime time and Darkwing Duck is on the case. The webbed wonder must leap
through the streets of St. Canard and blast the bad guys with noxious knockout
gas. Help him track down the lair of F.O.W.L.'s fiendish agents and prepare
for Darkwing's greatest challenge ever.
There is no stopping Darkwing once he is on the trail, but F.O.W.L. plans to
try! The heart in the upper left corner of the screen is a health meter and
it shows Darkwing Duck's strength. Each time Darkwing gets hit by one of
F.O.W.L.'s agents, he will lose one quarter of the health meter. When all
four quarters of the heart are gone, Darkwing will lose a chance and he will
have to start his search again.
If Darkwing is lucky enough to track down the lair of an arch-villain, he must
try to blast him with his gas gun. It will take many shots of gas before
Darkwing can capture him. Once the agent has been captured, Darkwing can
begin his search for the next vile villain.

HANG IN THERE, DARKWING.
Leaping from rooftops and hanging from ledges is all in a day's work for the
daring Darkwing Duck. In order to outwit his enemies, Darkwing must often put
himself in some pretty precarious positions.
To grab a ledge or a hook, press the B button to jump toward the hook or ledge
and Darkwing will automatically grab hold of it.
When Darkwing is done hanging around, just press down on your control pad and
he will let go.
To jump down from a rooftop or ledge, press down on your control pad and press
the B button. Darkwing will jump down from the ledge.
In the never-ending battle against crime, it is always handy to have a trick
or two up your sleeve. Now, thanks to those wondrous scientists at S.H.U.S.H.,
Darkwing's gas gun has been adapted to use three new types of gas.
Heavy Gas (Cloud)
A blast of heavy gas will immediately fall to the ground and explode. The
explosion will send a shock-wave across the floor in both directions. (Heavy
gas uses 2 units of gas energy.)
Thinder Gas (Lightning)
When Thunder Gas is used, two bolts od lightning are launched from Darkwing's
gas gun. Each bolt travels forward at a 45 degree angle. (Thunder Gas uses
2 units of gas energy.)
Arrow Gas (Arrow)
Arrow gas will cause a gaseous arrow to be shot out of Darkwing's gas gun.
These arrows can be shot against walls to help Darkwing overcome obstacles.
(Arrow Gas uses 3 units of gas energy.)
To use these special gas adaptors, Darkwing must first find them. Launchpad
has used the Thunderquack to zoom ahead of Darkwing and place the adaptors at
key locations within the city. It's up to Darkwing to locate the adaptors and
add them to his arsenal.
NOTE: Darkwing can only carry one adaptor at a time.
Once Darkwing collects a special gas adaptor, you can activate it by pressing
the SELECT button on your control pad. When you do, a number will appear
below the special gas indicator in the upper left-hand corner of the television
screen. This number shows how much gas energy Darkwing's gas gun has left.
Press the B button on your control pad and Darkwing will now fire out the
To refill the gas energy of the gas gun, Darkwing must collect gas energy
containers. These containers can be found by blasting enemy agents and picking
up the containers as they drop them.
As Darkwing clobbers his way past F.O.W.L.'s heinous henchmen, they may drop a
variety of items that will aid Darkwing in his journey. Just have Darkwing
touch an item and he will add it to his collection.
Small First Aid Kit (Small container with a heart on it)
This kit restores 1/4 of Darkwing's health.
Large First Aid Kit (Big box with a heart on it)
This kit restores all of Darkwing's health.
Small Gas Energy Canister (Small canister with the letter 'G' on it)
This canister adds 1 unit of gas energy to Darkwing's gas gun.
Large Gas Energy Canister (Big canister with the letter 'G' on it)
This canister adds 10 units of gas energy to Darkwing's gas gun.
Darkwing Doll (A Darkwing Duck figurine)
Pick up this item and Darkwing will earn another chance to complete the
Gold Bar (3 piled gold bars)
Adds 500 points to Darkwing's score.
Diamond (A diamond!)
Adds 100 points to Darkwing's score.
TOP SECRET TIPS
1. Darkwing's cape shield can be used to block many of the items thrown at him.
Be sure to use it.

Darkwing touches the signal, he will be given a bonus mission to attempt.
3. Darkwing can fire his gas gun while crouching.
4. If you get hit by an enemy, you will be invincible for a moment. Use this
time to get by any tough obstacles.
5. Pick up all the diamonds and gold bars you can. You will earn points at the
end of each stage and if you score enough points you will earn an extra
