Instruction Manual - Adventure Series
A long, long time ago a woodcutter's family lived in a small woods. One day,
inside their house, the grandmother was talking to her grandchildren. "Long,
long ago there was an evil dragon that was terrifying the people. A wizard
came from the north country, captured the dragon, and put it deep in the
ground. See the picture on the wall? The wizard is your grandfather."
Just as the grandmother pointed at the picture, their pet dog "Pochi" came in
with a shiny, pointed object. It was a scale from the dragon! Mother and
Father both felt the dragon was about to revive. So they started to get ready
to go to the dungeon. Their mission was to destroy it. The kids cried,
"There's no way that you can ever beat the dragon!" Father smiled and said,
"Don't worry, there is a DragonSlayer."
"DragonSlayer" is a magical sword - the only weapon that can destroy the dra-
gon. However, it is protected by four hidden crowns. The kids said, "We can
help you find the crowns if it's OK with you." "Sure, if we can all help each
other, we will be able to defeat the dragon," the Father replied.
Where are the four crowns? Can the Draslefamily destroy the dragon? Now the
Each member of the Draslefamily has different abilities. Use all the members
of the family (including the family pet "Pochi") to find the four crowns and
the sword, "DragonSlayer." During your adventure, you may return to the house
as many times as you like to change characters. Try to use everyone's diff-
erent abilities. If the family's life becomes 0 (zero) then the game will be
over. When your life becomes low, go back home or stay at an Inn. (If you want
to continue the game, see below.) Your progress can be saved at the house by
talking to Grandma and getting a password. Write down the password and give it
to Grandpa the next time you play. You will be able to continue from where you

The hardest part of the game is the area where you have to move blocks to
solve puzzles. Use the gloves to move the blocks into position if you can't
clear a section. Some of the puzzles involving the blocks are very difficult.
