Friday The 13Th- BY LJN toys

Written on April 20, 2004

-Versions-

-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

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.

Path:

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
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.

How to get: Jumping and killing enemies.
(More come out at forests)

-Flashlight- Lets you see the secret paths in the cave.

How to get: Light up all 7 fireplaces with the lighter.

Axe,pitchfork, torch: 1-2

*5* -Weapons- (Listed from weakest to best)

-Rocks-
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.

-Axe-

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
game!
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.
