[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]

                                                                      [Page 4]

[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.
