------=| INTRODUCTION |=-------------------------------------------------------

World Heroes Perfect is a Neo Geo Beat 'em up game, available in the arcades and
on the home Neo Geo systems.  I myself own the Neo Geo CD version, therefore all
moves shown have been discovered/confirmed by me.




------=| GAME DETAILS |=-------------------------------------------------------


FEATURES :

The gameplay is much like World Heroes 2 Jet, with added six-button play
(3 punch strengths, 3 kick strengths, & also 4 taunts per character).  All
characters also have an ABC Special move, and standard Weopon Killer and Guard
Crush attacks.

The game now features a 'Hero' charge indicator, to allow enhanced versions of
certain special moves, and also added are last-breath come-back Ultimate Attack
moves when energy is low (similar to Fatal Fury Desperations).

In the Home version, there are 3 modes of play;  MVS, CD and VS.  All characters
are playable in the VS mode, MVS is Arcade mode.  I do miss the old Death Match
option of World Heroes I & II, that's what I think made the original game work
and be more individual from all the other beat 'em ups out there.  I also enjoyed
spiking my opponent on a wall!

In MVS mode, players fight through each period in turn until meeting the final
boss.

The game also now features the ability to do multiple attack hits in the air, and
some special moves produce hits of 30+ hits!!!  The general game fighting engine
has been improved, allowing for greater combo potential.  Certain moves can be
'buffered', allowing an opponent to be hit as they land/after being thrown.
Characters even look up when their opponent jumps!

Usual best-of-three round winning rules apply.



PERFECT POSE:

If a round is won without losing any of your energy bar (i.e: a Perfect Victory),
you will be rewarded with a unique 'Perfect Pose' for your character.  Some
characters have the same 'PP' as one of their Taunt moves, other characters have
some very good poses which would not normally be seen.  Hence the name of the
game: World Heroes PERFECT!

Also, I noticed that when I was playing on 'The Period' stage, and I got a Perfect
Victory using Kim Dragon, he did his Perfect Pose and a statue of the dog (in the
background of that stage) fell from the sky!



COLOUR SELECTION :

Two colours can be selected, using either A or D buttons when selecting a
character.  The A button is the normal colour, the D button is the alternative
colour.



CHARACTER SIZE :

The game features the ability to play against a minaturised CPU opponent in VS
mode.  To do this when selecting a CPU opponent, select them with the B button.
The CPU opponent then becames TINY, and all their moves too!

Rasputin's ABC Special Attack produces this effect, as well as Gokuu's Genie-
Sucker move.



HERO GAUGE :

Each character has at the bottom of the screen a bar which fills up when your
character attacks the opponent and makes contact (special or normal moves, blocked
or not).  When the bar becomes full, it flashes and displays 'HERO'.  At this
point, your character now has the following abilities;

    - MAX Move; a boosted special or Ultimate Attack move
      (one or more of the characters special moves becomes stronger,
       and your character will flash before it executes).

       See each characters section for details.  * is specified by any
       special move which can do this.

    - Increased number of hits on opponent

    - Boosted power of normal attack moves

    - Decreased effectiveness of opponents moves on your own character
      (you also cannot be knocked out)

The bar will only drain when you have used the move (successfully hitting the
opponent or not).  Partly charged bars are carried over to the next round.



ABC SPECIAL ATTACK :

Each character has their own individual form of move/attack when pressing the
buttons ABC together (also may be done with a joystick direction nd ABC.

See each character's section for details of these moves.



ULTIMATE ATTACK MOVES :

These are 'come-back' / desperation moves, which can be used any time your
character's energy bar is flashing (from too much hit damage).  The effectiveness
and appearance of the moves is also altered if the HERO Gauge is full at the time
the move is used.

Full details are given in each characters section.




------=| STAGE DETAILS |=------------------------------------------------------


 1 - GENESIS

     The creation of the world is witnessed here.  Flows of lava and erupting
     volcanoes are everywhere, giving a red/yellow glow to the stage.
     Opponents fight on the edge of a great chasm.


 2 - JURASSIC PERIOD

     Jungle/swamp area, lush green vegetation and dragon flies fill the screen.
     Dinosaurs and animals witness the proceedings.  Fight takes place in a
     large puddle of the swamp.


 3 - THE ICE AGE

     Large dinosaur bones and ice create the scene, with breakable bones in
     the forground.  A family of rodents run around the screen.  It is
     night-time and snow is drifting down slowly.


 4 - THE STONE AGE

     Fight takes place in a cave, with cavemen eating and watching, Mammoths
     circle in the background.  There is a large stone wheel to the left.


 5 - THE MEGALITHIC AGE

     A very Eqyptian mood to this stage, pyramids in the background and slaves
     are hauling huge slabs of stone along.  The fight takes place on a great
     block of stone (which is being moved), at sunset.


 6 - THE DARK AGE

     A dark, foggy dimmly-lit back street at night, with ghostly spirits
     flying around the scene, and dark red eyes peering out from dark doorways.
     A very spooky stage.


 7 - GENROK PERIOD

     Fighting on a hill-top dwelling, many different types of people watch the
     proceedings.  There are some trees where birds are restings, and a busy
     village can be seen in the background.  There is a mountain in the far
     distance.


 8 - THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

     The scene is a busy train station, a huge steam train dominates.  There
     are many people around with their luggage, looking very 18th century.


 9 - GREAT WAR PERIOD

     A U-boat docking bay at midnight, the moon reflecting on the calm sea.
     There is a lot of loading going on; boxes, barrels, chicken crates and
     bombs.  Fighting takes place on the deck of a U-boat.


10 - THE PERIOD

     In the city street, a huge crowd cheers the fight and throws bottles at
     the fighters.  A tall skyscrapper is in the background.


11 - BLACKNESS CASTLE

     Zeus's sky palace.  There are two huge sabre-toothed tigers present, and
     many armoured knights holding draped lances aloft.  The fight is in a
     long hall, a painting hangs on the far left wall.


12 - FINAL STAGE

     Blackness Castle has been torn apart, crumbling and deserted.  Fierce winds
     blow and lightning flashes.


Before the final stages, your character and Dr. Brown are seen travelling in the
Time Machine, but Dr. Brown begins to have trouble, the Time Machine falters and
he loses control.  He lands at the sky palace Blackness Castle to fight Zeus.

    \====================================================================/



SPECIAL GROUND MANOUVERS :

    Dashing Attack - Forward Dash + any attack button.

    Guard Attack   - (similar to Fatal Fury series)
                     During an attack, you can use powerful 'Guard Attack'
                     techniques to destroy the enemy guard.

                     IMMEDIATELY after blocking an attack, press -O + A


    Blow Defense   - Use this to go on the offensive & thwart the enemy's
    Attack           attack (ie: Guard Crush).

                     Certain hits can stun the opponent for a split second
                     (when they blocked the move), allowing you to initiate
                     an attack on them.
                     
                     This is similar to the way fighter's clash swords in
                     Samurai Shodown II.  Each characters section shows this
                     move.
                     
                     A good example of this is Hanzou's standing B punch against
                     a blocking opponent.

    Projectile     - Before a projectile hits, use this move to destroy the
    Weapon Killer    projectile!  A good example is Hanzou's AB punch hitting
                     another Hanzou's Shuriken and breaking it apart.
                     Each characters section shows this move.

                     Notes:- Blocking at the latest moment will deflect a
                             projectile away.

                             If two projectiles meet, they will destroy each
                             other (or if a projectile meets Rasputin's Ice Ball
                             or Erick's Blizzard Breath), the projectile will
                             get frozen!




------=| INDIVIDUAL CHARACTER DETAILS |=---------------------------------------

Notes:-

   (close) - the move must be executed when next/close to an opponent
             (i.e: within throwing range)

         * - move is enhanced when Hero Guage full (MAX move)

All moves shown are for characters facing to the right.

Some moves can also be done in the air, and are marked as so.

Some moves which require the down-up motion (such as Kim Dragon's 'Dragon Kick'),
do not require to be charged.  Moves which do require to be charged (i.e: Janne's
moves) are marked as;  Hold  O-, -O + button etc.

The MAX move can only be executed when the character's HERO Gauge is full and
flashing the word 'HERO'.  After executing this move, the Hero Gauge will be
empty again.

The Ultimate Attack move can only be executed when your character's energy bar
is flashing red.
