HOW TO PLAY The story of Karnov begins in the peaceful village of Creamina, where the Treasure of Babylon has been kept for centuries, hidden away from the outside world. The Treasure has been sought by Ryu, a huge and evil dragon, for thousands of years. But now, Ryu has discovered the secret of Creamina and descended upon the little village, accompanied by all of his demonic cohorts. Ryu has made off with the Treasure, leaving his monstrous minions behind to terrorize the countryside. The helpless townsfolk have only one hope: Jinborov Karnovski, otherwise known as Karnov, a one-time circus strong man with a unique talent for shooting fireballs. Only Karnov can find a way through the monster-infested countryside, to seek out the evil Ryu and regain the Lost Treasure of Babylon for his people! 5 --------------------------------------------------------- SCREEN DISPLAY Option Number of Options Stocked Options Collected Score Timer Timer indicates time left to complete each level. 6 --------------------------------------------------------- SUPER FIREBALLS Karnov begins the game with three lives. If he is hit once, he turns blue. If he is hit again while he is blue, he loses a life. But if Karnov picks up a Super Fireball while he is blue, he will be restored to his normal color. Picking up Super Fireballs also increases Karnov's firepower. Collecting two Super Fireballs will enable him to shoot double fireballs, and collecting three will enable him to shoot triple fireballs. CONTINUATION MODE When Karnov has lost all three lives, the game is over. But the Continuation Mode allows you to begin a new game from where you left off.

Rock Man Karnov will need to power-up with Options to defeat this enemy, which threatens him with large boulders. Gidora Karnov will need a Shield to defend himself against this two-handed monster, which shoots out from both of its mouths. 8 ---------------------------------------------------------- OPTIONS There are ten Options available throughout all the levels.
