     I. Introduction
        ************
    
     * This FAQ contains a little info on the game, controls and some of the 
       Game Genie codes for Blaster Master 2. It does not contains the mission
       walkthrough.
    
     * I have not tested all the codes myself, so there could be some fault.
       If you find a non-working code, please E-mail me. I do not take the 
       responsibility for any damage caused due to these game genie codes.
    
     * I would be glad to receive your contributions and suggestions, and
       you will be credited.

     II. About The Game
         **************
    
     Name         :    Blaster Master 2
     System       :    Sega Genesis
     Company      :    Sunsoft
     Released     :    1993
     Type         :    Shooter
     Genre        :    Action/Adventure
     Players      :    Single Player
     Language     :    English
    
     Blaster Master 2 is a sequel to Blaster Master, and although I have not 
     played the original, most people seem to think it is not that good. But
     still I found it to be a nice game to play for a couple of hours. You 
     play as Jason and control a robotic vehicle call S.O.P.H.I.A. in the game 
     and its your usual jump and shoot side-scroller game. For more info, you
     can see the reviews posted at Gamefaqs.com

     III. Story
          *****
    
     Taken from Blaster Master Home Page (http://bmhp.iwarp.com/BM2.htm) :
    
     It has been four years since Jason's Encounter with the Plutonium Boss 
     and the radioactive mutants under the Earth. His only reminder of the 
     incident is S.O.P.H.I.A., the vehicle he used to stop them, which he has 
     hidden in an abandoned barn. One day, one bolt of lightning struck the 
     house and caused the ceiling to crumble, knocking Jason unconscious. When 
     Jason woke up, S.O.P.H.I.A. was in pieces and the parts he had collected 
     from his first dealings with the Mutant Bosses were missing. Little does 
     Jason know that there are more lightning beings where the first one came 
     from and they are planning to destroy the Earth. The beings started 
     digging towards the Earth's core in order to shift the planet's weight 
     off its axis, leading to total annihilation. The parts from S.O.P.H.I.A. 
     are being used to create a robotic army to assist the being in 
     accomplishing their mission. Now, Jason must stop them, but he won't make 
     it without the help of S.O.P.H.I.A. Since he can't recover the parts, he 
     decided to redesign it to better prepare himself for the ordeal facing 
     him. After 29 days, S.O.P.H.I.A. was completely rebuilt and ready for 
     battle. Remembering where he saw the being's footsteps, Jason jumped in 
     his vehicle and headed towards the mountains where the challenge begins.

     VI. Tips
         ****
    
     Not much here right now. Just keep firing and jumping. Just Kidding.
    
     * Use your simple fire splendidly. Its unlimited, so keep firing.
    
     * Use the special fire wisely. Don't use it against single enemies,
       wait for an area where there are a lot of enemies on screen, and 
       then use it.
    
     * Do increase the number of credits that you get at the Start menu.
       Of course don't do that if you want a challenge.
    
     * You don't need to kill every enemy. No need to play Rambo.
    
     * Try not to go back to an area, as the enemy will respawn

     VIII.  Frequently Asked Question's (FAQ's)
            ************************************
    
     Of course no one has yet asked me anything, but this is where any future
     questions would be placed. I have made up some questions myself and 
     answered for you :
    
     Q: Who made this game?
     A: Sunsoft.
    
     Q: Is this game any good?
     A: Certainly not the best on the Genesis, but is the best of its 
        kind, as its the only one.
    
     Q: What are the platforms the game has been launched on?
     A: Just Sega Genesis/Mega drive. (as far as I know)
    
     Q: Who made this guide?
     A: Me, Jatin Bhatia.
    
     Q: How can I contact you?
     A: See the last section.
    
     Q: I just found out something you have missed/done wrong/etc?
     A: Quick, send me an E-mail. Also mention the name you want to
        be credited as.
    
     Q: I am having some technical trouble in running/playing the game,
        can you help?
     A: No. I am sorry I can't help you. If you did legally buy the game,
        contact the vendor/maker of the game.
    
     Q: Can I post your guide on my website?
     A: Only if I allow you to. You will first have to send me an E-mail,
        with the address of your site, then I will check it up and reply.
        Most probably my answer would be yes, but you have to take my
        permission.
    
     Q: Can I use some portion of your guide in my work?
     A: Of course not. I do wonder if anyone would like to take anything 
        from this crappy guide.
    
     Q: How can I take screen shots in this game?
     A: I don't know. If anyone does knows, tell me.
    
     Q: How can I cheat in the game?
     A: I am not aware of any in-game cheats codes, but you can cheat using
        the game genie codes, see the Game Genie Codes section.
