Now after years of pillaging innocent people, he has taken control of outer heaven, a small naton on the outskirts of Southe Africa. Here he is sole tyrant and radial dictator. He rules with bullets and bombs, and in only in a few months he has outlawed democracy and turned harmless villagers into mercenaries for a global terrorist network. But his biggest threat is yet to come. For, as an obsessed madman, he has created the Ultimate Super Weapon. It's CaTaffy's greatest dream and the world's most hideous nightmare. It's called Metal Gear. And it must be destroyed before the crazed Colonel unleashes his violence across the globe. HOW TO TACKLE CaTAFFY Your mission, Solid Snake, is to seek out and destroy the Metal Gear, nothing less. To triumph, you must gather necessary information, weapons, and equipment as you press forward into the enemy's domain. Weapons and equipment can be found and captured in three various ways. Find them in enemy trucks. Find them in enemy storehouses. Or snatch them directly from certain enemies. Of vital importance as you proceed on your perilous mission, is how well you communicate with Commander South back at Fox Hound's HQ. Whenever you see a flashing "Call Sign" it means that he's trying to reach you with key info. Get in touch with him on the double, using your transceiver. (See Transceiver Mode on pg. 8) 4 Also know now that CaTaffy has 5 heavily fortified strongholds located throughout Outer Heaven, and you must discover then search each before accomplishing your ultimate task. The strongholds have between 1 and 3 floors. You'll move from floor to floor using elevators, and along the way you'll rescue grateful hostages who'll offer crucial infromation as to the whereavouts of Metal Gear. When you rescue a predetermined number of prisoners you'll be promoted, and as your rank increases so will your VITAL SIGN. On the negative side, if you botch it up and get a hostage killed you'll immediately be demoted. Be warned, though, about the Strongholds. They aren't cake walks. Each, in fact, is surrounded by loyal CaTaffy guards, and it's up to you elude them without triggering hidden alarms. The mission finally ends when you die. Or when you win. A little bit about yourself Recruited from the Marines after an heroic performance in the Grenada invasion, you were given the code name "Solid Snake" because of your ability to strike quickly, quietly and with deadly accuracy. 5 HOW TO CONTROL YOUR DESTINY Control Pad Use to maneuver yourself in four different directions, from East to West, to Advancement or Retreat.
