Typed out by [all spelling errors are verbatim from the manual] NES-ZA-USA-1 Zanac(tm) --- Zanac story First it was probably a tiny dot. A few thousand years later, it grew gigantic enough to cover the whole universe. The system created by an organic intelligence body a long time agp was still active even after the organic intelligence body perished. The system had a purpose: giving wisdom to those who opened the icon properly, and giving punishment of ruin to those who opened it improperly. One day, someone opened the icon improperly. The system started operation and startted attacking them. Then, they opened it properly. The icon ordered the system to suspend the attack. The system however ignored this order and became a slaughter device. The human beings who opened the icon fell into crisis. The attack from the system overwhelmed the offensive power of the human beings. When they were about to perish, there was one hope - the system is basically a strategic machine and is equipped for fighting against a multitude. If a single object confronts the system by itself, the system might not be able to cope with it effectively. It was a risky gamble, yet it was carried out in hope of success. They produced the fighter model AFX-6502-ZANAC which took off to begin fighting alone against the system. --- Name of Controller Parts and Operating Instructions Use Controller 1 to operate your fighter. Pad: operates ZANAC Select: push Select and Start at the same time to begin playing a new game from where the previous game ended. Only effective through area 10. Start: starts and pauses the game. B: launches conventional weapons. A: launches special weapons. Zanac's aim The aim of the game is to operate ZANAC and destroy ALC's - the central base of the opponent's machine troop. How to play Operate ZANAC and destroy the enemy. At some fortresses, where the scroll stops, you should destroy them within the time limit exhibited on the screen. The scroll starts again when you succeed in destroying these fortresses or the time limit is over. If you destroy objects either on the ground or in the air, various different objects emerge. If you catch them, unexpected things will happen. ZANAC is invincible when its body flashes immediately after it emerges on the screen or it destroys power-up items. The game consists of twelve areas. When you clear the 12th area, the screen shows the ending. --- Power Play Feature ZANAC uses ALC (Automativ Level of Difficulty Control function) which is programmed by AI (Artificial intelligence). The strength and quantity of the enemy changes according to the pattern of attack and player's skill level. The place where the enemy appears also varies game by game. This feature is unique to ZANAC. So playing ZANAC the fastest, most advanced space game, is like playing a new game each time. Exclusive Power Play feature Includes: High repid-fire rate increases the level of difficulty relative to the player's and enemy's skill level. Each appearance of an object in air increases the enemy's strength. A destruction of a fortress decreases the enemy's strength. Failure to destroy the fortress results in an increase of the enemy's strength. These are a few of the ways in which the strength and quantity of the enemy is adjusted according to both the enemy's and player's level. --- Special Weapons ZANAC uses eight special weapons. At the beginning of the game, it uses FIRE 0. You can change the type of weapons every time you catch one of the seven power chips (indicated by numbers flashing on the screen).

When a fortress emerges, the scroll stops. When you destroy all the cores, the fortress explodes, and the scroll starts again. Large-Scale Objects in The Air Large-scale objects might emerge in the air too. They have much higher resistance compared to objects in the air. They drive back most of the weapons launched by ZANAC. Yet, an effective attack is still possible. --- Techniques for a ZANAC Victory Use special weapons There are 8 kinds of special weapons. Use them effectively.
