    Friday The 13Th- BY LJN toys 
    Written on April 20, 2004
    1.0 First Version,updates to come.
    -Intro- This game was made for the nes in  1988 by LJn toys, 
    and its  a pretty underrated game. It may be hard to get into, 
    but once you do , you will want to play it untill you win. 
    This game may be beatable in 4 minutes by experts, but 
    expect a many hours of gameplay because its got a 
    pretty high challenge level for a beginner, 
    which makes you do over and over again till you complete it. 
    This game is based on Fridaythe13th's Crystal Lake area, 
    and has some elements of the movie.
    A man named Jason is  out for revenge, 
    and is killing the kids, and you have 
    6 counsollors to try to kill him with, but it is 
    easier said then done.

    *1* The Six playable Counsollors.
    Mark: This is the fastest character, and jumper. 
    You will use him through most of the game.
    He rows his boat like it has a motor, and 
    can easily jump over enemies, if he dies 
    you might want to restart the game.
    Paul:  I never really use this Counsollor much, 
    if I do its for protecting someone on the lake, 
    or for fighting in the houses. Never use him to 
    go get items, he isn't fast enough and cant really 
    jump enemies very good.
    George: Like Paul, I rarely use him, he cant 
    jump or run very good, so just stick with him 
    when you need extra help, or your fast characters 
    are nearly dead.
    CRISSY: This character should be used like Mark, 
    the one who goes and gets the items for everyone, 
    has about the same jumping and running 
    power as mark and can fight just as good.
    Debbie: Like Paul/George, this is just 
    another character that is worthless for 
    doing much, probably the worst character.. 
    just use this one as a suicide attacker.
    Laura: Cant really jump, but is one of the 
    3 useful characters. I usually use this one 
    on the second day of the game, it has pretty 
    good running speed, much better then george and 
    paul anyway.
    *2* -Control-
    Cabin\Cabin fights: Left\right moves the 
    character to different parts of the cabin, 
    up  moves forward.
    In a cabin fight, left and rights moves, 
    and B shoots the weapon. Holding down and 
    left does a left dogde, holding down and right 
    does a right dodge.
    A: Jump
    B: Throws weapon
    Pad: Move left/ or right or Up and down a path or house.
    Start: Pauses and shows map
    Boat: Same as walking, except this time your rowing.
    B: throws weapon
    Pad: Row  left or right
    Up: goes in  the lake house, or out of the lake
    *3*  -Items-

    when used on a Counsellor,
    and is automaticly used when you die
     to heal about 1\10 of the health.

    (More come out at forests)

    on the trail, just kill them quick
    with a knife or better or jump over them.
    Hit Points: 3 rocks, 2 knifes, 1 machete,axe,torch,pitchfork.
    >Crow<  Appears after around  Zombi kills, 
    Just jump over them or kill them.

    >Lake Zombi< Jumps out of the water, 
    sometimes diagonally,  its best to avoid them.
    Hit Points: 2 rocks, 1 hit of anything else will kill them.
    >Bats< Rare enemy in the cave, best to avoid them.
    Hit Points: Ive never fought them before, 
    so ill have to go test first.
    >Wolves< These appear in the forest at 
    evening and night time after you kill 
    about 3 Zombi , they are the hardest in game to kill, 
    except for bosses.
    Hit Points: Not sure on this, but:  Rocks: 9  
    Knife: 6 Machet: 3
    Axe,pitchfork, torch: 1-2
    *5* -Weapons- (Listed from weakest to best)
    Default weapon you start with, not really 
    good for killing anything
    -Knife- Its a bit better than rocks, and 
    its best to make sure all 6 characters have 
    atleast one of these.
    How to get: Random, jumping on the trails.
    -Machete- Bit better than a knife, a 
    overall good weapon for fights, will 
    kill most enemies in 1 hit.
    How to get: Supposdily, its gotten after 
    killing a certain about of zombi, 
    I have yet to test it though.
    Perferred weapon to have, besides the torch. 
    try to get atleast 2, as they can kill 
    anything in 1 hit except bosses.
    How to get: Ive found 2 ways to get this item.
    Light the fireplaces, grab notes, and goto
    the cabin in the woods, and it should be near the exit. 
    Can also get by defeated the Monster head
     in the cave on the first day , using a machete.
    -Torch- this is one of the best weapons, it
     can take off 1 life bar from jason each hit,
     and kills all normal enemies quickly, and has a 
    burning effect.
    How to get: Light every fire places (all 7)
     grab the lighter, and search the 2 big
     lake houses and it will be in one of them.
    -Pitchfork- The best weapon, has same power as
     the torch, but it can kill multiple enemies and has 
    longest range.
    How to get: Kill the Monster head in the cave on the 
    third day, ive never done this because i
     had the torch, but its suposidly a hard fight.
    *6* Jason strategys
    -Day 1-
    This is where you figure out how to fight him, 
    hes easy once you figure it out, but hard at first.
    Cabin Fighting: To beat this form, simply  
    wait for him to come, and do a doge till he 
    goes to the back of the room, hit him 2-3 times
     while he's there, and repeat. Sometimes he may 
    do a double attack, to tell if he is, when he 
    retreats, he will normally go all the way to 
    the left of the room and come down to you. 
    When he does this, its a single attack, when 
    he comes down at about half way from the left 
    and half way from you, its a double attack, 
    so do the dogde 2 times.
    Trail Fighting: I always find trail fighting 
    harder then cabin on first day, but if you 
    must trail fight, just constantly throw  weapons at him 
    untill he retreats. 
    -Day 2-
    Cabin Fighting: Today he has 2 modes , 
    Normal mode(from day 1) and Turbo mode, 
    in turbo mode he always does a double 
    attack, but its faster and harder to 
    dogde then a slow double attack. Just 
    use the same strategy from day 1 and 
    the only difference is the dogdging 
    is much harder, sometimes impossible
    on a controller with a worn out control pad.
    Trail: Trail fights are the same through
     out days 1-3 , so just reapeat Day 1's strategy. 
    -Day 3- 
    Cabin Fighting: Today you must use a totaly new
     strategy, if you use the old one, you will
     dodge him, but won't have time to get any
     hits in! To beat him here you must rely 
    on a little bit of luck and timing.
    He's always in turbo mode.. So what you
     must do is wait till he comes near you
     and At the last second, do a dodge , and
     it will dodge both attacks, and you can
     hit him with a weapon right after it.
     This form is pretty hard, and it might be
     easier to fight him on the trail in day 3.
    *7* Walkthrough.
    Ok, now that i've given you all the
     strategys and item locations, lets
     move on to using them in the actual
    Since this game is random, just try
     to follow this guide best you can.
    The game uses 3 different days, and
     you kill jason on each day. Sounds
     easy enough, but each day he gets
     faster and hits harder.  When he
     attacks someone a 60 second clock
    appears, and he will damage them
     every couple of seconds  if you
     dont get there. Use the Slow characters
    (Paul, Debbie near the lakes for when jason attacks the kids.
    ---Day 1---
    I suggest you pick mark for this day,
     he walks and jumps the best.
    Get used to the games controlls ,
     and kill 3 Zombi that come from the
    ground to get a lighter. now goto the
     lake area, light up the 2 cabins that
     have fireplaces in them. While your
     doing this try to get Medicines, Key,
     and a Knife. And be sure to yeild off
     the occasional jason attack. (Check the
     map and the green flashing house is where he's at)
    Now goto the main path that goes around,
     and light all 3 fire places. Then move
    on to the 2 near the cave, and grab the flashlight.
    Now go back to the lake, and search both
     houses until you find a torch.
    To grab the torch press select and pick TAKE.
    For the rest of the day, just search for
     potions while waiting for jason attacks,
     eventually you will kill him. 
    ---Day 2--- First off, i suggest you give
      the torch to laura and take mark to the
     forest. Once in the forest, goto the forest
     house. Heres a forest solution: Enter the
     forest at the top of the screen from the
     lake, goto the right and goto the first 
    path that heads upwards, and go up it.
     You should find another one in the same
     spot, go up it and you should be in the
     forest house. (you should have the key,
     if you followd this guide in day 1.  
    Search the house, and go back out,
     you should find a Axe at the exit.
     Take it, and leave the forest and
     goto the cave paths. Now go in the
     cave, jump the hole to the left, 
    and make one more jump,  you should
     see a door. Go in it. Go up and unlock
     the door with the same key from the forest,
     you will now be fighting the Monster head.
     To defeat it, i suggest just keep hitting
     it with the axe while standing in the middle
     till it dies, because your not using this
     character again(mark) until day 3. 
    When it dies, grab the sweater object.
     (notice the new glowing) This item will
     help greatly in day 3 during  the final
     jason fights. Now take this character back
     to a house, and keep him there until day 3,
     your now done with Mark for today. Now take 
    contrl of Laura (has the torch)  and search
     for Medicine.  **NOTE** Be careful not to   
     jump into a knife or machete, or you will 
    lose the torch and the third day will be very hard.
    Now just do as usual, fight jason off until he dies.
    (if you get low Health, trade the torch to someone 
    besides Mark.
    You've now made it to the third and final day!
    ---Day 3--- 
    Take Laura and give the torch to Mark,
     and then switch to him. You will use him
     until the end of the game. **OPTIONAL** IF
     you want the pitch fork with Laura, goto the Cave
     and kill the monster head, but you  probably will
     die without a axe or better, but i have never done
     this before. Taking control of Mark, This day is
     straight forward: Chase jason until he dies.  (refer
     to the jason fighting strategys) 
     Once you kill him watch the 'Ending' Not very
     long, but you can be satisfied you beat a pretty hard game.
