Legacy of the Wizard

Typed out by tsr NES-LC-USA Legacy of the Wizard(tm) Instruction Manual - Adventure Series Broderbund(r) --- The story 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 adventure begins. --- The family 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 left off. --- How to use the controller Start Button Use the start button to begin the game, Pause during a game, display inven- tory or continue a game in progress.

Select the character that you would like to use and then set up the equipment of the character. The maximum number of items that each character can carry is 3. If the number below the item is blue or zero (0) then the item cannot be used with that character. Items that are not equipped cannot be used.

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.

Entering the password Move the pointer over the grandfather. Use the Control Pad and the "A" button to enter the password. IF you make a mistake, use the left arrow to move the cursor back. When you finish entering the password use the curved arrow to confirm the password entry. If you want to stop entering the password, press the Select button. --- Game over: retry or continue If your character's life becomes zero (0), then the game is over. If you select RETRY, the game will start from the beginning. If you select CONTINUE, you will continue from the point when you last returned to the family home. Use the Select button to select and the Start button to confirm your choice. - If you have not gone back to the house at all during a game, selecting "CONTINUE" is the same as selecting "RETRY". --- The Draslefamily The Father: "Xemn" He is very powerful; he can use the magic gloves to move blocks.

DragonSlayer The only weapon that can destroy the dragon. --- The monsters Destroy the various monsters in the dungeons using different fighting tech- niques. Metablack Killer Bat Rock Beast Dedoru Claw Eye Bill Scorpious Killer Hound Slime Crawler Sam Bohanna Hoagie Invisigel The big monsters Each one of the four crowns is protected by one of the following monsters. If you can defeat each one, the crowns will be yours. Tarantunes Erebone Archwinger Rockgaea The king dragon Your final battle will be fought with Keela, the dragon. The dragon was imprisoned in the wall painting by the wizard because it was terrorizing the countryside. It has scales all over its body and breathes fire. --- Adventuring advice Conquering a complex maze begins with mapping. You should make a map while exploring the dungeon. Anyone can defeat monsters; discovering the secrets of the dungeon is the real key to this game. The dungeon has five major sections and each section has its own characteristics. Try to use each family member in the section where they can do the most good. Each major section has diff- erent background music and by knowing the music it's easier to tell where you're located. The dungeon is very complex. Making a map will make your adventure easier. After you pick up some items try to return to the family home. If you play without returning home, you'll lose the items when your character dies. Some of the blocks and monsters can be used to your advantage when exploring the dungeons. Moving blocks over monsters is a sure way to destroy them. You can climb higher by jumping on movable blocks or jumping from on top of the monsters. --- Special items in the dungeons Chests There are many items in the chests, but you need a key to open each one. The Picture of Princess Celina A secret is hidden here. After collecting the four crowns, try various tech- niques using one of the crowns to discover the secret of the princess. An ancient legend tells of a passage to the DragonSlayer, located somewhere near a volcano. Door You need keys to open the doors. Loose Block Not only can you move a loose block, but you can also break it with the matt- ock (pick axe). Stalagmite If you walk over this, you will get damaged. Magic Block If you touch these, they can transform into items or...? --- "Legacy of the Wizard" is a trademark of Broderbund Software, Inc. (c)1987 Falcom (c)1988 Broderbund Software Inc.
