INTRODUCTION From the castle Mordrocs deep vault a ghastly stench searched through the cold, damp midnightair: an obvious proof that the wizards favorit, the flamethrowing dragon Singe, was home. Singe is the beast that guards princess Daphne who's lock up in the dungeons deep below the groundlevel. Dirk the Brave went right to the castlegate. He felt no fear, but fear is only for the weak. No-one else than him would even dare come close to the frightful castle where Mordoc keep the helpless princess. Now it's time for heroes, now it's time for old honourable action. Now it's time to seek out the Dragons Lair... Page: 2 --------------------------------------------------------------------- THE CHALLENGE Dare you take the role as Dirk and try to rescue princess Daphne from the evil wizard Mordroc? Dirk has to get past the wall, through the castle and down the dark, damp dungeons. On the way Dirk must fight Snakes, the Lizardking, Tough warriors, Ghosts and hordes of other enemys. Finally Dirk has to fight the fantastic dragon Singe before he can rescue the princess. START OUT LIKE THIS Make sure that the switch on the Main unit is in position OFF. Insert the cartridge as it's described in the SNES manual and place the switch in position ON.

Page: 4 --------------------------------------------------------------------- THE GAME Dirk only has one goal - to rescue princess Daphne. Of course also to survive - but thats a matter of secondary importance to him. Dirks energy is shown with a number of shields Far down to the left to the screen. When the game starts he has one shield less than maximum. Dirk can therefore collect one more shield. If Dirk bounce in, or is hit by the enemy, his energy will reduce with a shield. When the shield are out it's eneough with one more hit to make Dirk transform inte a pile of bones - not good! When you completed a stage, another one opens up on the map that Dirk can follow to the next level. How completes Dirk a stage? Easy, just look for the sign "EXIT", but he must make the level in time. At the end Dirk stands infront of Singe in dragon person and as soon he defeated his old rival he reaches the Beautiful Daphne. Dirk can also find bonus and weapons on the way, They will be described on the following pages. Page: 5 --------------------------------------------------------------------- OBJECTS Dirk can use a number of objects as he finds on the way. You immediatly see what some are to be used for, while others can be more tricky. ROPE Dirk can climb up or down by using the ropes and flagpoles. If the rope reaches a floor Dirk can climb up direct. If the rope hangs above the floor Dirk must jump up to it by you pushing Up on the steerbutton. After some practice you'll manage the ropes without difficulities. WEIGHTS You'll find a number of weights and seesaws due to Dirk isn't heavy enough to get some of the falling platforms down on his own hand. The sea-saws are used to get the weight on the platforms. The higher Dirk jumps from, the longer longer the weights will be thrown. ANVIL Anvils are in general dangerous, but some can be used to help Dirk over some difficult platforms. Push a 'nice' anvil in a firepot and Dirk will get over to the other side in one piece. But if the anvil moves you must avoid it! SPRINGS There are also a number of jumpsprings in the castle. A few can help Dirk past tricky places. GAMESCREEN A Points to player 1 B Points to player 2 (in occurring cases) C Remaining lives you can collect up to 99 lives, but only 3 will be shown on the Gamescreen. D Remaning time at the actual stage. Dirk loses a life if the time runs out. E Number of collected goldcoins. F Number of remaining shields. Page: 6 --------------------------------------------------------------------- WEAPONS To help Dirk out almost impossible adventure you'll find a number of weapons here'n there at the Mapscreen. Dirks task will be much easier if he uses the right weapon at the right moment. SWORD - Dirk always has got his faithful sword. It is his most powerful weapon - but the enemy must be in reach. A single cut is often enough to make the worst monster bite the dust. AXE - Standard throwing weapon, but also the weakest. DAGGER - The Dagger flies straight forward which is good when Dirk leaps over edges. SHURIKEN - The most powerful throwing weapon, but it returns and hit Dirk himself if he misses the target. Certain enemys need more hits by the throwing weapons. You'll find weapons by crushing some bonus jewels. Page: 7 --------------------------------------------------------------------- BONUS JEWELS Bonus jewels will you find everywhere. Singe has dropped them when he lurks around in the castle for intruders. Dirk can crush the jewels with his sword and maybe find some of the following bonusobjects: WEAPON - Throwing weapons are in the jewls. GOLD - If Dirk collects 25 gold coins he'll get access to the bonus section in the end of the actual stage. HEARTS - Gives Dirk a new shield, if he already hasn't got a max number. TIME - Increases reamaing time with 60 seconds. Necessarry in several of the more difficult stages. Page: 8 --------------------------------------------------------------------- THE MENU SCREEN GAME START - Begin game. PLAYERS - Choose between a game of 1 or 2 players (ONE-TWO PLAYERS). At the 2 player game the players shifts playing. MUSIC - Turn on or off(ON/OFF) the music. PASSWORD - Type a password to continue an old game. OPTIONS - Change the grade of difficulty or the function of the controls buttons. Push Up/Down on the Steerbutton to choose and after that on Select-, A- or B-Button to confirm or choose between the alternatives. Hit Startbutton to begin game with the selected choices. Page: 9 --------------------------------------------------------------------- THE OPTIONS SCREEN First off you have the possibility to change to grade of difficulity: EASY, NORMAL, HARD or EXPERT. The choise affects the number of shields. The harder game the less shields. You can also decide which buttons on the JOYPAD who shall control the games functions. Buttons a, B, X and Y can all be used for Jump, Throw or Sword. Push Up/Down to choose and after Select-, A- or B-Button to shift between the alternatives. Push the Startbutton to return to the Menu screen. PLEASE NOTE: If you change the function of the buttons, but don't do for all three of the functions, the game works bad until you hit RESET or redo the button choice. Page: 10 -------------------------------------------------------------------- THE MAP SCREEN On the Mapscreen you can see Dirks progress in the game. When the game begins you can only reach one level. When you have completed that you can continue to the next. The player must by him self guide Dirk to any of the open stages, normally the new. When the game goes on more levels open. Some stages have more than one EXIT. You can return to a already completed level, maybe to collect certain bonus objects as you know belong there. Do use the Steerbutton to guide Dirk between the different kind of stages along the way. Push Start-, A- or B-Button to come to the actual level. CONTINUE Dirk starts the game with three lives. When all of them are wasted the game is over. If you've gotten a password(as below), or you've written a password the game continues from that spot. That means you don't have to play the stages you've already completed. If you've gotten more than one password, the game begins be the latest. Page: 11 -------------------------------------------------------------------- THE PASSWORD SCREEN The passwords has been made to fit the experienced players skill level. A novice can find it hard to type the more advanced passwords. This stops the novice players from taking a look on stages ahead. The idea is simple - every coloured ball must be placed in the right hole (marked with a numbered flag). You must solve the task in a certain time. Dirk has to get to he EXIT before the password is registrated. When you grow more experience by the game it gets easy typing the right password. When you've typed the right password the Map screen will show the actual stage. All following games starts on that level if you don't get a new password or hit RESET. If you type in the wrong password, the game will start from last startspot. Page: 12 -------------------------------------------------------------------- HINTS 1. Look out for bubbling oil on the walls - it's VERY slippery. 2. If Dirks lost much energy, go looking for energy shields. 3. The longer Dirks is on a certain stage, the more often he gets a visit by the "snapdragon". Finish the levels as fast as possible. 4. Extra lives are often hidden in the more difficult parts of the stages. 5. In certain levels there's more than one EXIT. The harder it is to reach a EXIT, the longer Dirk can walk on the Map screen. 6. The yellow barrels in the cave levels are very explosive. Try to push the together. 7. When Dirk swims he can't use his weapons - he must stay away from all enemys. 8. Dirk can jump out of the water if you push fast, several times on the B-button. Guide him up on a low platform when he bubbles.
