    [Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off-Road]_____________________________________
    
    Grab the wheel and hit the gas!  Based on the #1 arcade game, Ivan "Ironman"
    Stewart's Super Off-Road is an all-out dirt-grinding race.  Watch out for the
    mud holes, jumps and other obstacles on 8 different tracks and 16
    configurations.  Trade-in cash prizes for racetruck accessories at the Speed
    Shop and improve your chances for victory.  From match-offs to spin-outs,
    Super Off-Road is as close to genuine short-course racing as you can get.

    [Four Player Simultaneous Racing]_____________________________________________
    
    For the first time ever, four player simultaneous racing is possible on your
    Nintendo Entertainment System.  If you purchase the optional NES Satellite,
    four controllers can be used at once, allowing up to four players to race
    simultaneously.  Without this interface, you can have only one or two player
    races.
    Use a control pad or joystick to control each racetruck.  No matter which
    controller you choose, maneuvering the racetruck is identical.
    During a race, be prepared for anything!  The tracks and configurations appear
    in a specific order.  Each track is used both the clockwise and counter-
    clockwise direction, as indicated by the starting position.
    The race ends when one of the players completes four laps and crosses the
    finish line.  This player is the winner.
    
    NOTE: When playing Super Off-Road, there will always be four racetrucks on the
    track.  Any racetruck that is not being driven by a playerw will Auto-Race.
    
                                                                          [Page 3]

        you release the A BUTTON.
    
        Every time you press the B BUTTON, one nitro unit is used.  But don't
        forget to continue to press the accelerator (the A BUTTON) while using a
        nitro boost.
    
    NOTE:  To restart the game, press RESET on the Nintendo control unit.

    [The Speed Shop]______________________________________________________________
    
    At the Speed Shop, you can purchase accessories with your winnings in order to
    tune-up your racetruck.
    
    When you start a game, no player has any money, though all players have 3
    lives.
    
    If you win a race you gain a life (up to a maximum of 3).  If you come in 4th
    place then you lose a life.  If you come in 4th and lose your last life you
    will be asked, after the Awards Screen, if you want to continue racing or
    retire.  If you elect to retire then you are out of the game.  If you continue
    then your racetruck will retain any accessories that were bought for it.  You
    will be given 3 more lives but you lose all cash and bonus points.
    
    Note: After race #20 you will not be allowed to restart once all your lives
    are gone.
    
    The game is in two sections, the Qualification rounds and the Tournament.  The
    Qualification rounds are the first 14 races, and gives each player a chance to
    buy accessories before the Tournament.  The Tournament starts at race No. 15.
    If a player loses all of his lives in the Tournament, he will not be allowed
    to continue playing.
    
                                                                          [Page 6]
    
    There are 5 accessories you can buy for your racetruck:
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    |                                                                            |

    |  If you try to buy an item you cannot afford, you will enter the "Wait to  |
    |  Race" mode.                                                               |
    |                                                                            |
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Nitro fuel will give you an extra boost of speed power over your normal top
    speed.
    
    By buying better tires, you can increase the grip on the ground and decrease
    the amount of skid.  By buying more shocks accessories, the car will bounce
    less, allowing you to take tighter corners at higher speeds.
    
    The Top Speed accessory will noticeably increase the normal driving speed of
    your racetruck.  By buying the Acceleration accessory, your racetruck will
    accelerate to its top speed more quickly.
    
    The Speed Shop contains 4 menus, one for each racer.  Each meny displays the
    racer's accumulated money, remaining lives, the 5 accessories, and the next
    track.  To buy an accessory, move the cursor over your choice, then press
    SELECT.  When you're done buying accessories, move the cursor over the NEXT
    RACE and press SELECT.  The race will begin.
    
                                                                          [Page 7]
    
    [Two Ways To Win!]____________________________________________________________
    
    With Super-Offroad, you can win prize money two ways:
    track bonuses and final position.
    
    Track Bonuses
    To win extra money, try to hit the bonus targets on the track with your
    racetruck.  Bonuses range from $10,000 to $40,000.
    
    Nitro canisters can also be collected and start as 1 extra and increase up to
    5 extra.
    
                                                                          [Page 8]
    
    Final Position
    You also receive winnings for your racetrucks position at the end of the race.
    
    --------------------------
    |  WINNINGS              |  At the end of a race, each player is awarded
    |                        |  points that are separate from the cash score.  You
    | 1ST PLACE -- $150,000  |  receive (1) point for every $1,000 dollars that
    | 2ND PLACE -- $130,000  |  you win during a race.  Points accumulate as races
    | 3RD PLACE -- $110,000  |  are played and are entered on the High Score Table
    | 4TH PLACE -- $100,000  |  when the game is over.
    --------------------------
                                Any player beaten by a computer controlled
                                racetruck will have their winnings reduced by
                                $30,000.
    
                                                                          [Page 9]
    
    [Hot Tips!]___________________________________________________________________
    
    * Get ahead of the pack!  At the start of a race, use nitro boosts to move in
      front of the other drivers.
    
    * Buy as much nitro fuel as you can!  If you use your nitro boosts correctly,
      you can multiply your speed by as much as 3 times.
    
    * Avoid puddles and mud holes!  They can slow down your racetruck, and even
      cause a crash.
    
    * Watch for collisions!  If you're not careful your racetruck will crash into
      a barrier or another care and be destroyed.
    
                                                            Now Get Ready To Race!
    
    BEST ORDER TO UPGRADE YOUR TRUCK
    
    When upgrading your truck keep these things in mind.  
    --Don't blow excess money on Nitros you'll get them on the track.
    --Try to get everything on the track espcially Money Bags.
    --You should win the first race.
    
    With that out of the way this formula should work wonders.
    
     1st race--1 accelator
     2nd race--1 accelator and 1 top speed
     3rd race--1 top speed
     4th race--2 accelators and 1 tire
     5th race--1 top speed
     6th race--1 accelator and 1 top speed
     7th race--1 accelator and 1 shock
     8th race--2 top speeds
     9th race--2 tires
    10th race--2 shocks and 2 tires
    11th race--2 shocks
    12th race--1 tire and 1 shock
    
    When it gets to race 15 there are no continues.
    
    Tips
    
    --Cut corners will help you win races but beware you can easily screw up cutting at the wrong angles.
    --Use nitros on straight aways.
