TABLE OF CONTENTS
SO HERE'S THE SCOOP...
Something devastating is about to happen: the world is about to be unified
under one oppressive governing body - The New Order Nation - a corrupt alliance
of government and big business, set on crushing today's youth and destroying
anything that's at all fun. It's a gruesome regime, held under the iron rule
of Headmistress Helga, a vicious vamp whose obvious attractions are truly
fatal, and enforced by battalions of evil, leather-clad troops.
As the story unfolds, you learn that America's premier rock band, Aerosmith,
have been abducted from the hottest club in Los Angeles, Club X, by NON forces,
and that this is just the beginning. Their message is clear: the party's over.
It's now up to you. You're the only one who can stop the destruction; and
music is your weapon.
Surrounded be enemy helicopters and armored personnel carriers brimming
with psychotic New Order storm troopers wielding some rally wicked weaponry,
it's gonna take a lot of shooting to fight your way out of this one.
Take aim with your sonic assault weapon - the auto-load multi-CD launcher -
and blast the @#!* out of these treacherous tyrants to restore life as we know
It's a roller-coaster ride through some extremely tough scenarios as you
uncover what's really going on at the Evergreen Chemical Company in the heart
of the Amazon Jungle, battle to stop the bus that's taking people to Brainwash
Central to reorient them for the new society, and conquer Kemmitech where
they're making mind-altering drugs. All must be destroyed while you search for
Aerosmith and help to set them free for a celebratory concert at London's
There are hidden obstacles at every turn. Skeletons in every closet. Whatever
you do, don't give up.
GET READY TO ROCK!
1. Make sure the power switch is OFF.
2. Insert the Revolution X(TM) Game Pak as described in your SUPER NINTENDO
ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM(r) instruction manual. If you wish to play a two
player game, make sure both controllers are inserted at this time.
3. Turn the power switch ON.
When the Revolution X(TM) title screen appears, you'll have two choices:
Start Game or Options.
(picture of the Super NES)
To begin game play before or after setting options, highlight Start Game and
press the START BUTTON.
(picture of the SUPER NES Control Pad)
Revolution X(TM) has a bunch of cool options which allow you to set your game
just the way you want it. Press up or down to highlight an option, and left
or right to toggle through the settings. When you're happy with the settings
you've chosen, press the START BUTTON to return to the main menu and begin
Choose between Outrageous, Super Cool and Impossible skill levels.
Set how fast your cursor moves across the screen, from 1 [slow] to 3 [fast].
If you really want to, we've built in the option to play without listening to
any music. But, quite frankly, it's Aerosmith, so why would you?
Test Sound FX
Preview the cries of pain, the explosions, the crunching and the slamming
sounds. It's all there for you to sample as you prepare for battle.
Choose to play with or without sound effects. Tune out the graphic audible
horror as you blast your heroic path to the top.
The objective is pretty simple: shoot everything in sight, free all captives
and don't get wasted in the process. You score extra points for the amount
of destruction you do, so shoot freely.

Fire CDs (top L & R Buttons)
Aim Weapon / Choose Direction (+ Control Pad)
Pause / Resume Game (Start Button)
Fire Machine Gun (Y Button)
Throughout the game blast every box in sight, as well as background objects
to open them and reveal their contents. Fire again to collect what's inside.
Shoot CDs at windows, doors and signs and you'll find innumerable hidden areas.
(picture of a game screen with 3 direction buttons on screen)
At various points in the game you'll be given the chance to change directions.
Fire your weapon in the direction you want to go.

Your energy level appears as a bar in the top left (Player One) or top right
(Player Two) of the screen. Not surprisingly, every time you get hit, your
energy level drops. When it's completely empty, you'll lose your life.
It's impossible to have too many CDs. The counter at the top left (Player One)
or top right (Player Two) of the screen tracks how many you've got left.
Each player's current score appears above their CD counter. At the end of each
level, a special screen gives you a break down of your score and any bonuses
There are a bunch of pickups in Revolution X(TM) to help you thrash the New
Order. Pick them up by firing at them once they've been revealed.

Silver CDs: Worth 3 CDs.
(picture of a gold cd)
Gold CDs: Worth 10 CDs.
(picture of a gun)
Super Gun: Each Super Gun hit does the damage of five regular bullets.
(picture of a multicolored cd)
Laserdiscs: Cause more damage than a standard CD.

Shield: Protects you for 35 hits.
(picture of a red bomb)
Skull Bomb: The most awesome weapon in your arsenal. Wastes all enemies on
screen and even totals New Order vehicles.
(picture of a milkshake)
Wheat Grass Shakes: Guaranteed to give you plenty of pep - down a couple of
these and watch your energy meter rise.
(picture of Aerosmith wings)
Wings: To really rule at Revolution X(TM) and make a ton of bonus points in
the process, you've got to earn your wings - all five of them. Wings are
awarded when you find and free a member of Aerosmith.
When your Energy Meter is empty, your life is over. Depending on your
difficulty setting, you will have either 15, 20 or 25 chances in which to free
Aerosmith. If you wish to continue, press the START BUTTON. You will then
start play from the point at which you lost your last life.
At the end of each level you hack the New Order database to find out how much
damage you've managed to inflict. The scoring screen gives you a tally of all
your points and bonuses, as well as accuracy percentages. Points are awarded
for wasting enemies, finding hidden objects, freeing captives and destroying
things. And of course, the biggest bonuses are given for freeing Aerosmith -
to rock again.
There's a huge amount to do before you can free the band and loosen the
stranglehold of the New Order. Their tactics are treacherous. They have
infiltrated every corner of the globe. They're running Teen Re-orientation
camps in the Middle East. They're dosing natives with mind control drugs,
then commandeering them as guards. They're armed to the teeth and their
strength in numbers is terrifying. Worse still, they're under the thumb of
Headmistress Helga - whose evil knows no bounds.
It's up to you to keep the rebellion alive. It's a tough job, but someone's
got to do it. And if you can beat these butt heads, you'll get an outrageous
LOS ANGELES CLUB X
It's almost show time at Club X. The band is getting ready to go on-stage.
Security are waiting to open the doors. The excitement is building, when
suddenly, out of nowhere, you hear the omnious whir of an assault helicopter.
Tension rises. In no time at all they've taken over. The New Order, dedicated
to stopping fun in all forms, has seized power.
Watch out for the enemy transporter - it's tough to stop. Once you're inside
the club, check out the bathroom - it's full of surprises. The lobby is
swarming with NON droogs. Try to make your way into the bar and free the
girls. Aerosmith are ready to rock, but the New Order are trying to cancel
the show. You've got to fight back with everything you've got. The backstage
scene is brutal.
(picture of the bar scene in this level)
The New Order have succeeded in capturing Aerosmith. Your task is to hijack
a NON helicopter and take off in search of the band's car, with an enemy
chopper in hot pursuit. Load up on pickups wherever you can - you'll need
them to exterminate the troops that are following you.
(picture of the helicopter scene in that level)
Where you go from here is up to you... Once you've destroyed the chopper and
found Aerosmith's car, you have to decide where to take the flight next. There
are three different scenarios. You need to master all of them in order to
help save the world from eternal misery.
(picture of the car scene in this level)
Deep in the heart of the Amazon jungle, working under the cover of the
Evergreen Chemical Company, the New Order are putting mind control chemicals
in the world's food supply. They've already turned the once-peaceful natives
into crazed killers. You've got to fight your way inside the factory, where
you can expect an explosive reception. Explore your surroundings thoroughly
and keep your eyes open for captives. And if you come across a gibbering,
giant green skull - just keep shooting.
(picture of the jungle scene in this level)

By now you'll have realized that the New Order Nation will go to any lengths
to retain their tenuous grip on power - even if this means mass brain-washing
the youth of today. Stop the Express Bus that ferries kids to Brainwash
Central, the Teen Re-orientation camp where they turn them into senseless
drones, willing to execute others on command.
First, free as many captives as you can. Then blast the bus back to the stone
age. En route, try to solve the riddle of the Sphinx. To speed up or slow
down, shoot at the buttons on the top left and right of the screen.
(picture of the bus scene in this level)
KemmiTech is yet another front for the NON. This warehouse facility, on an
island out in the Pacific Rim, is where their mind-altering chemicals are
manufactured and stored. It's crawling with ninjas and yellow jackets - so
don't let up on the trigger. You need to find your way around the warehouse,
keeping an eye out for hidden advantages. Once you've cleared the place, it's
time to visit the executive suites. When you get there, you'll find that the
head honcho is a really nasty piece of work.
(picture of the warehouse scene in that level)

Finally! You've beaten them at their own game. Aerosmith is free. Now it's
time to celebrate with a sold-out concert at London's Wembley Stadium. But
not just yet... Your task is to shoot down the on-stage video monitors to get
to Headmistress Helga, who's lurking behind them in the hopes of salvaging
her miserable life and the New Order Nation.
(picture of TVs scene in this level)
Now it's time to go one-on-one and find out what she's really made of (and it
isn't pretty). All your fighting skills will be needed for this last brutal
battle. Dig deep. Rally one more time and the pay-off will be handsome - the
party of a lifetime.
