 II.  STORY
=============================================================================
Metro City, the crime capital of the world, has been overwhelmed by crime and 
violence.  At the center of the problem lies the Mad Gear Gang, a merciless
band of punks and thugs that controls the city.  But the leader of the gang 
wants more than just the city.  He has fallen in love with the mayor's 
daughter, and he's going to do whatever it takes to have her.

Haggar's daughter Jessica is missing and the leader of the Mad Gear Gang has 
got her.  He plans to marry Jessica and take control of the whole city.  But 
one man stands in their way.  Haggar is in a fightin' mood and he is ready to 
crack some skulls.  Joining him in the rescue are Guy and Jessica's 
boyfriend, Cody.  Together, nothing's going to stop them from getting her 
back and restoring peace to Metro City!

(from game)
This is Metro City.  Within the walls of the city lives the daughter of the 
mayor, Jessica.  Her beauty radiates throughout the city and gives the 
citizens the power to survive.  But now a villain attempts to have this 
beacon of light all to himself.

"I can't believe that I've actually fallen in love with the girl.  She will 
be mine....."

A couple days later...

"What?!  Jessica...kidnapped...!?!  What have you done to her, Cody?"

 IV.  GAMEPLAY
=============================================================================
Game Screen
-----------
On the game screen will be displayed several items.  It is divided into 3 
parts:  top screen, middle screen, and bottom screen.  The top screen has 4 
items.  The first two are long meters.  The top meter is your remaining life.  
It will reduce each time you get hit by an enemy.  When the meter disappears, 
you will lose one life.  Below your meter will be the enemy's life meter.  It 
will reduce each time you hit an enemy.  When it disappears, the enemy is 
defeated.  The life meter of the last enemy that you hit is the one that is 
displayed.  Keep in mind that each enemy has his/her own life meter.

At the top right of the screen are two numbers listed next to letters.  The 
first is the round indicator (RD).  It tells you which round of a possible 5 
that you are currently in.  The second is the player indicator (PL).  It 
shows you how many extra lives you have remaining.  Lose all your lives and 
you'll be brought to the game over screen where you can choose to continue if 
you still have extra continues left.

The middle of the screen is where the action takes place.  Your character is 
onscreen along with your enemies.  Up to two enemies may be on the screen at 
any time.

The bottom of the screen deals with experience.  The left part has a level 
indicator that has six slots.  The slots will be filled to the amount equal 
to your current level.  So if you are level 4, four slots will be filled.  To 
the right are two numbers separated by a backslash (/).  The left number is 
your current experience point total.  The right number is the amount of 
experience needed to reach the next level.  Your current total will reset to 
zero for each level that you gain.  After you reach level six, both 
experience numbers will be replaced with hyphens (-).


The Scoring System
==================
The game does not use a regular point based scoring system.  Instead, you get 
"experience points" for defeating enemies or grabbing special items.  The 
amount you get depends on what move you used to kill the enemy.  Below is a 
table of all the possible moves you can use to kill an enemy along with the 
corresponding amount of experience points awarded.

Enemies
-------
Bred
Bred is a flat hair guy.  He's a pushover and his only attack is a punch 
attack that can hit you if you're not ready but he's otherwise easy to beat.

Two P
Sporting a cape and spiky hair,  Two P is a very fast opponent.  He likes to 
run around and hit you in your back.  His punches are very fast and can catch 
you in a rapid punch combo that can result in heavy damage.  Use a special 
attack to break out of this attack.

Axl
Slick-haired Axl likes a good defense as well as a good offense.  He likes to 
block your attacks.  His kicks inflict heavy damage.  The best way to defeat 
him is with throws.  He also doesn't block knee/elbow drops that often.

El Gado
El Gado wears a beehive-shaped hat and has a beard.  He is another quick 
opponent.  He has knives that he can throw at you.  Punch them down or avoid 
them altogether.  He will use the knives to stab you as well.  He also uses a 
quick jumping knife attack that can inflict heavy damage.  He will pause 
momentarily before using this attack so use that opportunity to get out of 
the way.  El Gado's last attack is to slide and trip you up.

Poison
Don't let this cute girl's looks fool you.  She is fast and has two attacks.  
The first is a slap attack that can catch you in a combo similar to Two P's 
rapid punches.  The other attack is a somersault kick that can inflict medium 
damage.

Andore
The big and powerful muscleman of the gang, Andore is slow but strong.  He 
has a shoulder charge attack that will inflict heavy damage if you get hit.  
He'll use it when he is at a distance from you.  His punches also inflict 
medium damage so dodge those too.


Bosses
------
Thrasher
Haggar and his friends must start their journey in the slums of Metro City.  
There Thrasher, a cool blonde with shades, will be waiting to put a stop to 
their mission.  Being at the bottom of the totem pole, Thrasher must do 
whatever it takes to prove his worthiness to the Mad Gear Gang.

Katana
Riverside is ruled by Katana.  If you want to go through, you'll have to 
destroy the sword-swinging samurai.  He's quick with his sword, so be very 
careful.  He has a twin brother who rules the factory.  But it has been 
rumored that a third may exist.

Abigail
Abigail is not your typical muscle-head.  He's got brains and brawn.  He's 
been exercising his mind by reading trivia.  So if you want to get past Old 
Town, you'll have to answer his questions or he'll plant a big wet kiss on 
your cheek.

Katana II
This is another Katana brother that you'll encounter.  He heads the factory 
where weapons are produced for the Mad Gear Gang.  He thinks like his 
brother, so use the same tactics to defeat him.

Abigail II
He guards the first part of the Bay Area.  He fights exactly like Abigail.

Katana III
The third and rumored Katana brother guards the second part of the Bay Area.  
He fights like Katana II so be ready.

Belger
Leader of Mad Gear and the one who kidnapped Jessica.  Half man and half 
machine, Belger is 100% mean.  He'll do anything to keep Jessica for himself 
and that includes defeating the likes of you.


Other
-----
Jessica
The beautiful daughter of Metro City's mayor, Mike Haggar.  She has been 
kidnapped and is waiting for Cody, Guy, and Haggar to rescue her.


=============================================================================
 VI.  ITEMS
=============================================================================
As you fight your way through the streets of Metro City, you will find steel 
drums.  Break these open by punching or kicking them and you may find some
power-up items.

Food:  Pick these up to increase your strength.  Consuming various types of 
food will give you different amounts of energy.  If you pick up food when 
your strength is full it will give you experience points.
     Cake:  Give you 16 exp
     Soda:  Gives you 8 exp
     Apple: Gives you 24 exp
     Chicken:  Gives you 32 exp

Heart:      Every time you pick one of theses up, it will give you an extra 
            life.
Mobi:       Pick these up and it will give you two extra lives.
Money Bag:  Collecting these will give you an extra continue.


Also inside steel drums are weapons you can use.  If you're lucky enough to 
find these, simply stand over them and pick 'em up with the B button.  Now 
start swinging away at your enemies!!  Certain weapons will only be available 
to certain characters.

Knife:  Being a skilled knife fighter, Cody is not afraid to challenge anyone 
with a knife or a sword.

Shuriken:  With the skills of a ninja, Guy can throw this weapon with great 
speed and accuracy.  You get 8 shurikens to throw.

Oversized Mallet:  With the experience of a wrestler, Haggar is the only one 
with enough strength to swing the oversized mallet.


=============================================================================
 VII.  WALKTHROUGH
=============================================================================
This walkthrough will guide you through the entire game.  I assume that you 
know to attack all your enemies.  There are places in the game where the 
screen stops scrolling.  Then enemies come out.  The game randomizes which 
enemies come out so don't be alarmed if you encounter different enemies than 
in my walkthrough during these parts.  As always, feel free to deviate from 
my strategies.  Use as much/little as you need.


Round 1:  Slum
==============
Area 1
------
Enemies:  13 (Axl, Bred, Two P)

It's the first round so practice all your moves.  Then go right when you're 
ready.  Keep going and you'll see Bred drinking a soda.  Don't get near him.  
There is a door in the background.  Move just to the right of it and Two P 
will comes fight you.  Now go back left and beat up Two P first.  Try to use 
the technique that gives your character the most experience points possible 
(Cody/Guy use knee bashes, Haggar use piledriver).  After beating Two P up, 
go right and beat Bred who happened to just sit there while his buddy was 
getting pummeled by you.

Now go right and the screen will stop scrolling after a while.  Bred and Two 
P come out.  Beat them both up.  Try to kill Two P off first because he's 
more dangerous than Bred.  Go right and you'll see Axl (green guy).  He'll 
start walking towards you.  Let him come to you and start attacking.  He'll 
block most of your attacks.  Punch him and run up and grab him while he's 
still blocking.  Then throw him away.  Repeat this process until he's dead.

Now go right and Bred will come out.  Kill him.  Go right and the screen will 
stop scrolling.  Bred and Two P will come out.  You should be able to kill 
off Bred before Two P comes out.  Then finish off Two P.  Go right and you'll 
see Bred leaning against the building.  Go right until he starts attacking 
you.  Kill him like usual.  Go right and you'll see Two P sitting down.  Do 
not approach him yet.  Look at the background.  You should see a sign that 
says "2 Room 555-6262."  Look below that and the red wall has two blue 
splotches on it.  Walk to the right until you're below the left blue splotch.  
The screen should stop scrolling by now.  Axl will come out.  Two P will 
remain sitting though.  Go left and beat up Axl.  Then wait.  Another Axl 
will come out soon.  Beat him up too.  Wait again and a third Axl will come 
out.  Kill him.  Now go after Two P.  You'll move to the second area after 
you defeat Two P.

Area 2
------
Enemies:  4 (Andore, Bred, Two P)

Go right and the screen will stop scrolling.  Five steel drums will roll at 
you.  Move up and down to line yourself up with each one and punch it to 
break it open.  A random item may be found.  The first drum is always a 
chicken.  The other drums contain random items.  You may get something or you 
may get nothing at all.  Be sure to collect the items before the drums are 
all smashed or roll away or the items will disappear.

Go right and you'll see Andore.  There's a sign to the far right.  It reads 
"Movies."  You should see just "MO."  Andore will attack you when you see 
just those letters.  Beat him up carefully as his attacks all cause serious 
damage.  Then go right and Two P will attack.  Kill him.  Then go right and 
the screen stops scrolling.  Bred and Two P come out.  You should be able to 
kill off Bred before Two P comes out.  Then kill Two P.  You'll now 
automatically move to the right and face Thrasher.

Boss:  Thrasher
Thrasher will start talking to you.  He'll ask you to bow down to him.  Say 
"NO" to cause a little damage to him.  Then he'll say that he rules the 
streets.  Say "NO" again to cause some more damage to him.  You'll then begin 
fighting.  Thrasher hits hard so avoid his attacks.  He has a jumping body 
squat that he can use to travel across the screen.  He also has a double chop 
punch attack that he'll use when you get close.

Attack Thrasher with a barrage of jump kicks.  It is mildly difficult to grab 
Thrasher.  It's easier if you use a set up move like the elbow/knee drop.  
Get away from Thrasher when you knock him down or he'll get up and rapid 
punch you.  Just use a hit and run tactic by moving up and down to avoid 
Thrasher.  Then get in and use jump kicks to hurt him.  Continue this process 
until you defeat him.


Round 2:  Riverside
===================
Area 1
------
Enemies:  13 (Axl, Bred, El Gado, Two P)

Go right and Bred will come out.  Kill him.  Go right and you'll see El Gado 
standing there.  He'll come at you.  Don't let him get too far from you or 
he'll use knives.  Always move up and down so he can't hit you.  Kill him 
quickly.  Go right until the screen stops scrolling.  You'll face the 
familiar duo of Bred and Two P.  Kill them like usual.  Then go right and 
you'll see Two P sitting on a bench.  Move right until he starts to attack.  
Then kill him off.  Go right and you'll see Axl.  Kill him.  Then go right 
and the screen will stop scrolling.  Yep, it's Bred and Two P again.  Kill 
them both.

Go right and you'll see Axl.  Kill him.  Go right and you'll see Bred having 
a drink.  Move up slowly until he starts attacking.  Kill him.  Go right and 
the screen stops scrolling.  Bred and Two P come out.  Kill them and Axl 
comes out.  Kill him too.  You'll move on to area 2.

Area 2
------
Enemies:  19 (Andore, Bred, El Gado, Poison, Two P)

Go right and you'll soon see Bred sitting on a bench.  Slowly move up and 
Poison will come out to attack.  Watch out for her attacks and kill her like 
everyone else.  Then go up and kill Bred.  Go right and the screen stops 
again.  Bred and Two P come out first.  Kill them.  Now Two P and Poison come 
out.  Lastly, Bred comes out.  Kill them off and then go right.  You'll see 
Andore.  Kill him.  Go right and Poison is waiting.  Kill her.  Go right and 
the screen stops.  Bred and Two P come out.  Kill them both.  Poison will 
come out afterwards.  Kill her.  Go right and the screen stops.  Five steel 
drums will roll out.  The first is chicken.  The rest are random.  Break them 
all then go right.  You'll see El Gado.  Kill him.  Go right and you'll face 
Poison.  Kill her.  Go right and the screen stops.  You'll face Bred and El 
Gado.  Poison and Bred come out next.  Then Poison comes out once more.  Kill 
them all and you'll move on to face Katana.

Boss:  Katana
Katana is wearing full body armor so your punches will do little damage to 
him.  Grabbing him is too risky so jump kicks will be the key to victory.  
First avoid Katana's charging slash attack.  Then you can go up and grab him 
before he recovers.  Always stay far away from Katana so he can't hit you 
with his charge attack.  He can also slash you if you get too close.  Run up 
and jump kick him only when it's safe to do so.  Jump kick somewhat early or 
his attack will hit you before you land your kick.  Punches are too risky to 
use so just use jump kicks and throws to win.  Repeat until he's dead.


Round 2 Bonus Round
This bonus round will have 20 steel drums roll out.  The prize you get is 
based on how many drums you successfully break.  Here are the prizes.

Round 3:  Old Town
==================
Area 1
------
Enemies:  13 (Andore, Axl, Bred, El Gado, Two P)

This round has many pits that can kill you if you fall in.  You can also 
knock your enemies in the pits to kill them but you'll only get one point for 
doing this.  Go right and you'll see a pit.  Axl comes out.  Kill him.  Go 
right and Two P charges out.  Kill him.  Go right and the screen stops.  Bred 
and El Gado come out.  Kill them.  Go right and Andore comes out.  Kill him 
while avoiding the pits.  Go right and you'll see El Gado.  Let him come to 
you and kill him.  Go right and the screen stops.  Stay at the top.  Andore 
and El Gado will come out.  You'll need to be extra careful when fighting 
them.  Don't fall in the pits.  Go right until El Gado comes out.  Kill him.  
Go right and Axl is there.  Kill him.  Go right and the screen stops.  Bred 
and El Gado come out.  Kill both.  Then Axl comes out.  Kill him to move on 
to area 2.

Area 2
------
Enemies:  11 (Bred, El Gado, Poison, Two P)

Go right and you'll see Bred come out.  Keep an eye on the window closest to 
Bred's side of the screen.  Kill Bred.  Now stay in the middle.  Walk to the 
right and the moment you pass the window, Poison will drop down from the top 
of the screen.  Keep moving or just move down to avoid getting hit.  Kill 
her.  Go right and the screen stops.  Bred and Two P come out.  Kill both.  
Then Poison and Bred come out.  Kill them.  Go right and the screen stops 
again.  Five steel drums will roll out.  Break them and then go to the right.  
You should see windows in the background.  Look at the column to the left of 
the second window.  Poison will drop down from the top of the screen when you 
pass that column.  Quickly move back to the left to avoid getting hit.  Then 
kill Poison.  Go right.  El Gado will drop down.  Keep going right to avoid 
getting hit.  Poison will also come out.  Kill both.  Then Bred and El Gado 
come out.  Kill them and you'll go on to face Abigail.

Boss:  Abigail
This big muscle-head has a few attacks.  The first attack will cause his face 
to turn red and then he'll run at you and punch.  Do not get hit by this 
attack or you'll take major damage.  Another attack is to grab you and start 
kissing you.  He can do up to three kisses.  This attack also will inflict 
heavy damage.  He also has an uppercut punch that can knock you out of the 
air.

The key to victory will be either jump kicks or to use your super technique.  
You should be up to level 4 experience by now so you can try to use the super 
technique from a distance.  Abigail will usually walk right into it.  If he 
avoids, you can quickly do a jump kick or try to get away.  You can also 
throw him after he misses a punch but do so sparingly as he's more likely to 
grab you instead.  Get away from him when you knock him down or he'll get up 
and uppercut you.  Repeat this strategy and Abigail will be defeated in no 
time at all.  Cody can use his super technique here for an easy victory.


Round 4:  Factory
==================
Area 1
------
Enemies:  10 (Axl, Bred, Two P)

Go right and you'll see Bred leaning against warehouse #2.  Slowly walk up 
until Axl appears.  Kill him first.  Then go and kill Bred.  Go right and the 
screen stops.  Bred and Two P come out.  Axl and Bred are next.  Kill them 
and then go right.  You'll see Two P sitting on the ground.  Slowly go right 
until Axl appears.  Kill him first.  Then go up and kill Two P.  Go right and 
the screen stops scrolling.  Bred and Two P come out.  Kill them both.  Go 
right and you'll move on to the next area.

Area 2
------
Enemies:  12 (Axl, El Gado, Poison)

You're in an elevator shaft.  You start off on B1.  You'll need to fight your 
way down to B4.  You'll fight Axl and El Gado first.  Do not fall off either 
edge of the elevator or you'll die.  It may be wise to throw/knock off the 
enemies off the elevator.  Picking up the weapon on the elevator is up to 
you.  Constantly jump kicking along with some throws will be the best 
strategy to use.  Kill them and more enemies come down.  You'll get either 
Axl, El Gado, or Poison to drop down.  Kill a grand total of 12 enemies to 
move on to area 3.

Area 3
------
Enemies:  6 (Axl, Bred, El Gado, Two P)

Get the chicken.  Go right and El Gado will drop down after you pass the 
second picture on the wall.  Keep moving to avoid his attack.  You'll see 
Bred leaning against the wall.  Don't get near him yet.  Kill El Gado first.  
Then move to the right slowly.  Bred should still be leaning against the 
wall.  Move up enough and Two P will come out.  Kill him and a second Two P 
comes out.  Kill him and another Two P will come out.  Kill him and a fourth 
Two P will come out.  Kill him.  Bred should have been leaning against the 
wall the entire time.  Go up and kill him now.  Then go right and face Katana 
II.

Boss: Katana II
This is Katana's brother, also called Katana.  However, I'll call him Katana 
II from now on.  If you're at full life, Katana will say some words and start 
fighting.  However, if you're hurt, Katana will offer you some water.  Say 
"YES" to get your life recovered.  Then he'll start fighting.

Katana II fights like his brother.  He'll use the same charging slash attack 
and regular slash attack.  He's also wearing the same armor so punches won't 
be that effective.  He's also vulnerable to a throw after missing his 
charging slash attack.  He's also weak against jump kicks so use plenty of 
those.  Employ your usual hit and run tactic against Katana II.

Katana II's swords will break once you've taken off 2/3 of his life meter.  
He'll stop using the slash attack and use a new attack.  This new attack 
involves him blinking and then doing a quick charge across the length of the 
screen.  Dodge it or you'll take heavy damage.  Katana II is very open to 
your attacks after he misses the charge.  Take this opportunity to run up and 
throw him.  Then get away before he gets up.  He'll just repeat the charge 
attack so dodge and counter with your own attacks.  Watch out as he can 
charge diagonally so keep your distance at all times.  Repeat this strategy 
until he's dead.


Round 4 Bonus Round
This bonus round will have 20 steel drums roll out like before.  However, 
some drums will drop down from the top of the screen this time.  The prize 
you get is based on how many drums you successfully break.  The prizes 
awarded are the same as round 2's bonus round.  Refer to the chart listed 
under "Round 2 Bonus Round" for the prize chart.


Round 5:  Bay Area
==================
Area 1
------
Enemies:  14 (Andore, Axl, Bred, El Gado, Poison, Two P)

Go right and Two P appears.  Kill him.  Go right a little more and Poison 
will drop down.  Kill her.  Then go right and the screen stops.  Andore and 
Two P come out.  Kill both and then Poison and Andore come out next.  Kill 
them.  Then another Poison and Two P come out.  Kill them.  Go right and 
Andore is waiting.  Kill him.  Go right and El Gado comes out.  Kill him.  Go 
right and the screen stops.  Bred and El Gado come out.  Kill them both.  Axl 
and El Gado are next.  Kill them too.  Then go right to face Abigail.

Sub-boss:  Abigail II
Abigail II is out for revenge for what you did to Abigail.  He uses the same 
attacks as before so you know what to do.  You should be at level 6 now so 
all your attacks will do decent damage to Abigail II.  Just use the same 
strategy that you used against the old Abigail to beat this new one.  You'll 
then move on to area 2.

Area 2
------
Enemies:  14 (Andore, Bred, El Gado, Poison, Two P)

Pick up the apple.  Go right and fight Andore.  Kill him.  Go right and Two P 
comes out.  Kill him.  Now go right and the screen stops.  Bred and Two P 
come out.  Kill them.  Now Poison and Bred come out.  Kill them too.  Bred 
and Two P come out afterwards.  Kill them and then look at the background.  
You should see a picture of a chicken under a knife and fork.  Go up next to 
the sign and punch the chicken.  You'll get healed.  Go right and you'll see 
Bred drinking a soda.  Go up slowly to get him to attack you.  Then kill him.  
Go right some more and El Gado appears.  Kill him too.  Then go right and the 
screen stops.  Bred and El Gado come out.  Kill them both.  Then Poison and 
Bred appear.  Kill them as well.  Then go right to face Katana III.

Sub-boss:  Katana III
The final Katana brother is here.  I'll call him Katana III.  He fights 
exactly like Katana II so you know that he'll first use the charging slash 
attack and slash attack for phase one.  Then he'll use the blinking charge 
attack when his swords break.  Use the same hit and run strategy that you 
used against Katana II in this fight too.  Katana III will be dead soon 
enough.  You'll go on to area 3.

Area 3
------
Enemies:  none

This is the final area.  Get the chicken.  Then go right to fight Belger.

Boss:  Belger
The leader of Mad Gear is finally here.  He is faster than anyone else in the 
game and uses and several attacks in two different phases.  In phase one, he 
run circles around you.  He'll use a rapid fist attack that can catch you and 
potentially take all your life away if you don't break out of it.  Move up 
and down or use your special attack to break out.  Don't bother trying to 
grab him.  Just jump kick him to death.  He'll talk some more after you hurt 
him a little.

Belger is now in phase two.  He will run to one side of the screen and start 
firing 5 rocket fists at you.  He'll fire each one at a different height so 
you'll most likely get hit unless you do something.  That something is to 
jump kick or punch the rocket fist down.  Belger will also do a short range 
hop and punch attack.  He uses this to move across the screen when you get 
too close.  The last "attack" that Belger uses isn't really an attack.  He'll 
stop moving and start laughing.  He'll do this when you get hit by a rocket 
fist or when he finishes firing all 5.  This is your opportunity to run up 
and throw or punch him.  Whatever you do, just inflict massive damage.

Charging at Belger will do you no good because he'll just retreat to the 
other side of the screen.  Using your special attack does practically no 
damage to him.  Therefore, the key to beat him is to dodge his rocket fists 
and to let him start laughing.  Then run up and hit him while he's still 
laughing.  Then get away.  Belger will use his rocket fists again.  Just 
constantly jump kick them or dodge them.  Wait for all five to be fired.  
Belger will laugh again after he fires them all.  Run up to him and hurt him 
before he recovers.  Repeat this process and Belger should go down shortly.

 VIII.  SECRETS AND CODES
=============================================================================
How to do maximum damage combos
-------------------------------
Here's how to do the most damage with each player.

Cody:  Use a knee drop.  Then punch twice.  Grab and do two knee bashes.  
Then do an over the shoulder throw.

Guy:  Use an elbow drop.  Then punch twice.  Grab and do two knee bashes.  
Then do a back roll toss.

Haggar:  Punch twice.  Then grab and do two head butts.  Finish with a 
piledriver.


Early strength boost for Cody and Guy
-------------------------------------
While Cody and Guy begin the game at level one, Haggar starts off at level 
three.  You can however give Cody and Guy an early advantage with this trick.  
First, pick Haggar and let the enemy kill you.  Then continue as Cody or Guy.  
You'll resume play with a level three Cody or Guy now.

(note this trick isn't too useful because you're basically just throwing 
lives away.  Five lives is enough for Haggar to fight his way up to the part 
where Cody and Guy normally would become level three at anyways.)
