Karate Kid

Typed out by Akeera The Karate Kid instruction manual Treat your LJN Game Carefully This LJN Game Pak is a precision crafted device with complex electronic circuitry. Avoid subjecting it to undue shock or extremes of temperature. Never attempt to open or dismantle the Game Pak. Do not touch the terminal leads or allow them to come into contact with water or the game circuitry will be damaged. Always make sure your NES Control Deck is SWITCHED OFF when inserting the Game Pak or removing it from the NES Control Deck Never insert your fingers or any metal objects into the terminal portion of the expansion connector. This can result in malfunction or damage. INTRODUCTION Think you can handle a real Martial Arts challenge? Then how about guiding DANIEL SAN through the series of hazards, obstacles and challenges that stand in his path? But don't think that just being able to fight will get you through. This time its not enough to just punch, kick, and jump...this time your total Martial Arts training will be put to the test. Your discipline and inner control could be what saves your life. You must prove that you are capable of thinking, reasoning, and reacting. Catching a fly with your chopsticks, or splitting blocks of ice with your bare hand is just as important as fighting face to face with your enemy. This challenge will take you to the Karate Tournament in L.A., the back roads of Okinawa and many strange areas beyond. Always keep your mind clear and remember all that you've been taught and maybe...just maybe. .. you'll make it.

One way is the usual game play and the other is ONE-ON-ONE against an opponent. (see page 6) The usual game play is made up of 4 REGULAR GAME STAGES and 3 BONUS STAGES. The first stage is the KARATE TOURNAMENT. Here you must defeat all your opponents and become the champion before you can advance to the 2nd stage. This is where the scrolling starts and you are attacked by many enemy fighters on your way to the final confrontation with Chozen. During the BONUS STAGES you can earn Special Techniques like the CRANE KICK and the DRUM PUNCH which you can save and use later in the game. You can also earn them by touching the C and D symbols whenever they appear. You can enter and challenge a BONUS STAGE by jumping into one of the dark doorways that appear in the background. Your skill in the BONUS STAGE is what will determine how many points you score and how many Special Techniques you earn. GAME MODE SELECTION Press the start button and the GAME MODE SELECTION screen is displayed. Select 1 of the 3 modes; 1 Player, 2 Players or ONE-ON-ONE. The 1 Player and the 2 Players games are usual game play. The ONE-ON-ONE game is played by 2 players against each other. One is Daniel-San and the other is Chozen. While playing in this mode, no Special Techniques can be used. SPECIAL TECHNIQUES There are 2 very powerful and destructive Special Techniques that are available to be used in addition to the basic punch and kick. They are the DRUM PUNCH and the CRANE KICK. You can earn these Special Techniques during the BONUS STAGES. The higher your score, the more Special Techniques you earn. The number of CRANE KICKS AND DRUM PUNCHES you have is displayed in the upper right hand corner of the screen. You are limited to this number only. CRANE KICKS and DRUM PUNCHES can be used by pressing the A button and DRUM PUNCHES can be used pressing the B button, but only when you are not pushing the control pad. If you are pushing the control pad at the same time, the A button will be a normal punch, and the B button will be a normal kick.
