Wrecking Crew

Typed out by Thomas Mattsson WRECKING CREW(TM) INSTRUCTION BOOKLET PROGRAMMABLE SERIES --- Thank you for selecting the Nintendo(R) Entertainment System(TM) Wrecking Crew(TM) Pak. OBJECT OF THE GAME/GAME DESCRIPTION This Nintendo Programmable game lets you design your own buildings, place barriers where you want them, and then get set to demolish them in record time. So you can build a different maze of obstacles to tear down every game! You can also choose to knock through a series of walls pre-programmed by Nintendo. Each wall gets tougher, and you have to be clever to keep away from monsters like "Gotcha Wrench" and "Egg Plant Man", blazing Fireballs, and the mean "Foreman Spike". Please read this instruction booklet to ensure proper handling of your new game, and then save the booklet for future reference. 1. PRECAUTIONS 1) This is a high precision game.

HOW TO PLAY 1. Press button A or B at the game menu to display the number of the building you want to play on. * PHASE = XXX is displayed. * Any building between 1 and 100 may be selected. The higher the figure the more difficult it gets. * In the 2-PLAYER game, once the game has finished, Mario has first choice for the phase No. of the next game. 2. When the next game starts, the phase No., score (min. 000000), and No. of remaining Marios (Luigis) are displayed. The screen then moves down and the walls that are flashing are those designated for demolition. 3. Use the control pad to move Mario (Luigi) to different walls on each floor. Hit walls with the A or B button to demolish them. When all of the walls that were flashing at the beginning have been demolished, that building is finished, and you move on to the next one. * On each floor, the players can go off the left side of the screen and reappear on the right side, and vice-versa, as long as there are no gaps in the floor and there is no drum obstructing either end. --- 4. The monsters (Gotchawrench and Eggplant man) and Foreman Spike are likely to try and interfere with Mario (Luigi) while he is at work. Use the control pad skillfully to get by them. Be especially careful not to get stuck behind a dead-end drum when you do this. * Foreman Spike has a habit of hitting Mario (Luigi) from behind and making him fall, so watch out! 5. If you spend too long on the same floor, a fireball will come flying out. See if you can keep from getting burned! 6. Dynamite can be used to blast several walls at once, but if you are not careful to escape to the right or left, you will be blown over by the blast and will fall down to the bottom of the screen. 7. When you lose a man, you must start demolishing that building again from the beginning. 8. When all of the walls have been demolished, the screen changes to the next building. 9. Bonuses After phases that are a multiple of 4, you get a bonus phase. (Ex.) The phase after phase 4, the phase after phase 8 ... * There is a coin hidden in one of the walls that are standing in a row. You have to hurry up and climb the ladder, knock down the walls, and find the coin before Foreman Spike does. --- * When you find the coin, the time on the clock is added to your score as a bonus. If Mario (Luigi) finds the coin on the first try, there is a special super bonus of 10,000 points. Secret Weapons The wrecking crew has a few special tricks. If these are used cleverly, you can make the game work to your advantage and get super high points. On the other hand, if you use these techniques badly, they can backfire and eliminate Mario (Luigi) altogether, so be careful. * The following is a description of a few of the techniques. [Secret Weapons] 1. Dynamite several walls in a row. Leads to super high points. 2. Whopper punch A sizzling punch to attack Foreman Spike or whatever enemy may be on the other side of the wall. --- 3. Dynamite escape OK even when sandwiched by monsters. 4. Monster chase Hammer open the door and herd the monsters inside. 5. Dynamite the door open Opens even a faraway door. 6. Drum walking You can walk over the drums. --- 7. Drum drop Capture Foreman Spike and the monsters alive. 8. Fence-in strategy The monster is trapped and can't move. 9.

(The maximum number of times this is displayed is 8.) --- [Hopeless cases] 1. Covered by a drum You have to start all over again from the beginning 2. Boxed-in No escape 3. In a fix No escape Beware! * You lose one Mario (or Luigi) if you're hit by a fireball. * You also lose one Mario (or Luigi) if you're hit by a monster.
