Ultra (r) Games
Get ready to be rocked, rattled and rolled!
Short on funds for a worldwide terrorist blitz, the underground criminal
organization VIPER (Vicious International Punks and Eternal Renegades) has
infiltrated RollerGames - the most popular sport of the 21st century. With
their greedy sights set on the games' mega prize money, they've corrupted
three skating teams and abducted the games' beloved commissioner, Emerson
"Skeeter" Bankhead. Now, somewher beneath the city, he sits bound and gagged,
at the mercy of these cowardly creeps.
The CIA and FBI lack the speed, cunning and sheer brute force for this job. So
it's up to you and your own three teams of free-wheeling skate wizards to
rescue the commissioner and stop VIPER from unleashing its venom on the entire
city. This is one fight that cannot be fought like a gentleman. You're going
to have to take it to the streets, the sewers, the junkyards - just about any
place your eight wheels can go (and even a few places they can't).
But even your cat-like reflexes won't guarantee success as you choose and lead
your teams through the six muscle-aching stages, all peppered with dastardly
deathtraps. Open manholes, greasy oil slicks, combat helicopters and
blood-thirsty dogs are just a few of the dangers that await you.
Of course, you'll also have to punch and bodyslam your way pas chop-happy judo
masters, skateboard thugs, motorcycle madmen and more.
And considering the odds of survival, now might be a good time to hang up your
skates and bow out gracefully. But remember, the lives of thousands are
hanging in the balance. And if you choose to accept this job and fall flat
somewhere along the way, you can count on VIPER to roast your ball bearings
How to play
Your object is to first defeat the three evil teams in RollerGames, and then
rescue the race commissioner from VIPER.
RollerGames is made up of six stages, and incorporates two different types of
scrolling. Normal scrolling, used in stages one, three, five and six, allows
you to move in eight different directions.
Auto-scrolling, whcih only allows you to move right, is found in stages two
and four. Stages two and four have one area each. Stages one, three and five
are each made up of two areas, and stage six is comprised of four separate
Each stage is packed full of enemies and traps. In each of the normal
scrolling stages there are several different scenes where you must defeat the
enemies you encounter using sheer physical strength and brute force. And only
if you overcome the big free-wheeling greaseball in the fast fighting scene of
each stage can you advance to the next stage. NOTE: In the auto-scroll stages
you have to make your way safely through numerous ruins and attacks before
advancing to the next stage.
At the beginning of each stage, you can choose from among the three good
teams. There is one team that is best suited for each stage. Whichever team
you choose, you will play the role of the star player. Each of the star
players has unique characteristics and each has a Patented Punishment
Technique to use in the fighting scenes. There is a limit, however, to the
number of times you can use these techniques. So use them carefully! And
remember, your fists are your only weapons in normal scrolling stages, so keep
on dukin' for all you're worth! (If you want to save Skeeter, that is.)
You have three lives to start the game. As your score advances to 20,000
points, 50,000 points, and 80,000 points you will earn an extra life. Your
score, along with the number of lives remaining, will be displayed at the end
of each area, the end of each stages, and when you haphazardly lose a life to
Your Life Gauge will decrease every time you get hit by an enemy attack or
fall into a trap. You will be knocked out and lose a player when your Life
Gauge reaches zero, when the time runs out (in normal-scrolling areas only),
or when you fall into a crack, manhole or the water.
The game is over when your last player is knocked out of the game. However, if
you want to keep on playing, you can choose to continue from the beginning of
the area where the last game ended. (See page 6 for details.)
How to begin
Press the Start Button during the Title Screen and the opening sequence will
begin. When the Team Select Screen appears, use the Control Pad to select your
racing team. Once you have chosen your team, press the Start Button to begin
your rescue mission.
You can choose to continue playing even after all your players have been
knocked out of the game. When the Game Over Screen appears, use the Control
Pad to select the Continue Mode. Then press the Start Button to enter your
selection. The Team Select Screen will appear next. Once you have chosen your
team, the game will start again from the beginning of the area where the
previous one ended. If you don't want to continue playing, choose End and the
Title Screen will appear again.
