The radar invisible Stealth copter dips and weaves through the narrow
passes of a vast mountain range which stretches from the borders of
Teristan to its capital city Ishkabibil. Only minutes from the drop zone,
you clutch your assault rifle and stare out the window. Darkness is
Your fellow commandos from the FOX HOUND Battalion sit across from you. One
sharpens his knife. The other polishes his grenades. No one speaks, but
through the silence a message comes across loud and clead - this will be the
most dangerous mission ever attempted, even more so that the infiltration of
Colonel Vermon CaTaffy's stronghold.
For now, you're challenging Higharolla Kockamamie and his army of raging
lunatics. And you must overcome untold hundreds of Uzi toting soldiers, a
heavily armed battleship and a loaded locomotive to reach your objective,
destroying Higharolla's Ultra-Sheik Nuclear Attack Tank. Or else the world
will be knocked to is knees by a fellow who has won the "Merciless Man of
the Year Award" eight straight times.
How to accomplish your mission
Once the Stealth copter has penetrated Teristan's airspace, it will drop
your squad on the fringes of Fortress Fanatic, a terrorist sanctuary on the
outskirts of Ishkababil, where Higharolla's crackpot troops are stationed.
From there you'll have to infiltrate the fortress, utilizing all of the
skills you learned in FOX HOUND's Sneak Attack School. Shhhhhh, quiet. Or
else you'll suddenly be surrounded by assault troops who don't play by the
rules of the Geneva Convention.
As you "snake" through the fortress, keep your eyes peeled for hidden
weapons, crucial equipment and, most importantly, POT's (Prisoners Of
Terrorism) who'll supply you with information vital to the operation's
success. Also be on the alert for searchlights and heli-snoops that'll be
looking to give your position away.
If, during your mission, you receive a CALL SIGNAL, or at any time want to
contact J.T., Nick or Jennifer, use your tranceiver (See p.8 for details).
Finally, remember this: You must locate special Pass Cards to advance
through enemy buildings or to enter rooms that contain "must have" weapons
and equipment. Each of these cards (1-8) has a secret code which
corresponds to various doors, and without them you might as well turn in
your combat fatigues for a civilian's suit.
The Three Commandos (and their foxy friend Jennifer)
(Place your name here)
Aka: Solid Snake
A black belt in 32 forms of oriental combat and skilled in every weapon
known to man, you're FOX HOUND's most lethal fighting machine. You're a
combination Rambo, James Bond, John Wayne and Lawrence of Arabia. You're
also the leader of this perilous mission, and if you bite the dust, so does
the free world.
A Double Naught Spy from the Air Force's super secret Intelligence
Department, John Turner is the greatest camouflage artist ever. He was last
seen somewhere in South Vietnam back in 1969. But don't worry, he'll show
up for this mission.
Commando Nick Myer
Nick graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, but found that Wall Street's
cutthroat attitude was too tame. So he joined FOX HOUND and quickly became
an explosives guru and leader of the Nitroglycerin Division. Nick's
nickname: La Bomba.
Very little is known about Jennifer, except the fact that she has an uncanny
ability to infiltrate an enemy's headquarters. She's currently posing as a
computer expert in the nerve center of Fortress Fanatic. Rumor has it that
she's the younger sister of Ginger grom Gilligan's Island. Hint: her secret
code name is Yr. Person.
Controlling your commando
A Button In the Main Screen, press to use your weapons or equipment. In
the Horizontal Screen, press to jump.
B Button In the Main Screen, press to punch or stab. In the Horizontal
Screen, press to use your weapons.
Start Button Press to begin your mission or to pause the action.
Select Button Press during play and the Mode Selection Sub-Screen will
appear. See page 7 for details on how to choose a weapon,
equipment or the transceiver by using the Sub-Screen.
Control Pad Press to maneuver your commando in four different directions.
If you're in a Horizontal Screen (which appears after you
fight through Base 1), press Down to lie on your belly and then
press Left or Right to crawl.
Your life line
Your rank, remember the higher the rank, the longer your life line.
The weapon you've chosen from the B Section of the Weapons Screen
The weapon you've chosen from the A Section of the Weapons Screen
The equipment you are using
Your life line
The weapon or equipment you are using
The number of explosives
The number of rations
The number of oxygen tanks
THE MODE SELECTION SUB-SCREEN
Throughout the mission, you'll be searching high and low fro special
weapons and equipment important to your survival. You'll also be
keeping in constant contact with your cohorts for clues.
At any time, you can change primary weapons, switch to different
equipment or use the transceiver. To do so, press the Select Button and
the MODE SELECTION Sub-Screen will appear. Next, use the Control Pad
to move the "star" to either Weapon, Equipment or Transceiver. Finally,
press the A Button.
When you've finished changing items, guide the "star" back to the Sub-
Screen, using the Select Button, and position it with the Control Pad
next to RTN. Press the A Button, and you'll be back in the thick of
Top Secret Modes
In this mode there are two sections: A & B. In the B section you'll
choose to either fight with your fists or with a knife. In the A section
you'll decide which weapon is most appropriate for whatever combat
situation you're in. For example - if the enemy traps you in a room with
a door jamming device, you'll want to switch to either hand grenades or
plastic explosives to destroy it.
To make selections, press the Select Button to move the "star" from
section to section, then press the Control Pad to choose a weapon. After
your selection, press the A Button, then press the Select Button to
return to the MODE SELECTION Sub-Screen.
In this all-important mode, you'll select the equipment you need by
following the same sequence described under the Weapons Mode.
Remember, this is the mode where your Pass Cards are kept. During the
mission, you'll have to move the "star" from card to card to enter certain
rooms. Once in a room you might have to switch your equipment again. For
example - if you suddenly find yourself under water, you'll have to move
the "star" to the oxygen tank until you come up for air.
Another reminder: Your rations are also stored here. If your life line
runs low, switch to this mode, move the "star" to the rations, then press
the A Button. It'll make you feel like a new Commando!
Note: The deeper you go into the game, the more weapons and equipment
you'll have to choose from.
In this mode you can either respond to a CALL SIGNAL by pressing the
Select Button or try and initiate communications with one of your co-
commandos. To make a call, press the Control Pad to line up the cursor
with either J.T., Nick or Jennifer, then press the A Button. If they're
clueless they won't respond...but keep trying throughout the mission,
because you never know when they might have a hot tip for you. A word of
warning: your transceiver is useless when the enemy's alarm sounds.
Note: After you finish reading each piece of the message on the screen,
press the A Button.
An extra function of this mode id the Detect Channel. If you move the
cursor to this special channel and press the A Button, a grid will appear.
If J.T. or Nick has planted a transceiver for you to track down, its
location will flash.

by pressing the A Button.
Before the Stealth copter took off from the aircraft carrier USS Grover
Cleveland, your superiors compiled these helpful hints to keep you from
falling prey to Higharolla and his band of terrorist thugs. Use them wisely.
1. Open as many doors as you can.
2. Listen to rescued prisoners and use the Truth Gas to force captured enemy
commanders to talk. After rescuing a certain number of prisoners you'll be
promoted in Rank, thus increasing your life line. Note: Every time a
person's message stops, press the A Button.
3. The Silencer is somewhere in the Jungle. Find it, or else your shots will
be heard 'round the world.
4. If you're lost or confused, try to contact J.T., Nick or Jennifer.
5. It takes either 3 punches or 1 thrust of the knife to bring down an enemy
soldier. Sometimes, before he perishes, your victim will leave you with
rations or extra ammo. (Hey, to the victor go the spoils!)
6. When you reach the main door of Base 1, hide behind the bushes then try to
contact your pals. Afterall, J.T. might have a plan.
