You are about to learn what it takes to be a descendant of command legends Scorpion and Mad Dog. That is, now that the Red Falcon would like to use your family tree as a toothpick. You're Jimbo and Sully, special forces comrades just like your fearsome forefathers were. Nowadays, your weapons and maneuvers are more advanced than they were when your ancestors saved the world from being skewered on Red Falcon's fangs. That brutal is still in his prime and he had plenty of time to plot his revenge. He's swamped Neo City with six stages of the most cruel and unusual punishers ever. So run, climb, ride, soar and start blasting your way to the Alien Main Base. Before your family name and your planet are just dirt under Red Falcon's claws. HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD IT'S ALL HOW YOU LOOK AT IT You'll be scoping out some missions from side view and some from top view. In a side-view stage, you'll have to contend with the mighty Stage Boss at the end of each mission, and he won't be happy that you've made it past his underlings. Defeat him and you'll advance to the next stage. In a top-view stage, you first select the field in which you'd like to start battling. There will be a number of targets to hit throughout the course. Radar arrows will lead you to the next closest target. You also have a map you can check out by pressing the SELECT BUTTON. After you've abolished all the startegic targets and the toughest alien attackers, you'll move to the next stage. 4 ________________________________________________________________ KNOCKING 'EM DOWN AND RACKING 'EM UP Throughout all the stages you will be engaging in two-fisted warfare. You carry a weapon in each hand and can switch fire from one to the other at any time with the X BUTTON. Be on the lookout for weapon Wings. They appear after specific enemies are blasted. Shoot down the Weapon Wings and grab the Power Up inside to receive a new, more powerful weapon. As you pick off aliens, you will earn points. For the first 20,000 you'll receive a bonus player. After that, you'll receive a 1UP for every 60,000 points up to 30 player units. THEY GOTCHA, NOW WHAT If you catch an enemy bullet the hard way or fall into a ravine, you will lose one of your players. If you lose all of your players, the fight's finished. You can go back for more by selecting CONTINUE when GAME OVER is reached. In the Easy mode, you can choose CONTINUE three times. In the Normal and Hard modes, you can keep the battle raging up to five times. If you continue, you will find yourself at the beginning of the stage where you left off. At the CONTINUE screen, you can also change settings for 1 Player, 2 Players A and 2 Players B. If you are alien busting with an ally, you can borrow a player from your partner when you run out by pressing the A BUTTON and continuing to play. 5 __________________________________________________________________ TO GET THE SHOWDOWN ON THE ROAD To begin, insert your Game Pak into the Super NES and turn it on. Press the START BUTTON and you will be at the Player Select screen. Press the CONTROL PAD Up or Down to select 1 Play, 2 Players A, 2 Players B or Option. In Option mode, you can select Player lives (3, 5 or 7), Level (Easy, Normal, or Hard), Sound (Stereo or Mono) and Exit. There are unique endings for each of the difficulty levels, so you'll want to try and tackle them all. Move to the category that you'd like to adjust by pressing the CONTROL PAD Up or Down. Adjust the setting by pressing the CONTROL PAD Left or Right. Select EXIT to move back to the Player Selection screen. You can also skip OPTION if you'd like and go right to player selection. If you selection 1 Player mode, you're going it solo. In 2 Players A, two engage in creature crushing simultaneously. While in a top-view stage, you'll be battling on different screens. The 2 Players B mode is like 2 Players A but the difference is, when you're in a top-view stage, you'll be on the same screen rather than separate screens. Press the START BUTTON once you've slected the player mode and get ready for a supersonic 16-bit extravaganza. 6 ______________________________________________________________ ADVANCED SPECIAL FORCES MANEUVERS SIDE-VIEW STAGES START BUTTON Press to pause the game.
