Bally/Midway (TM) Up 'n Down Official Arcade Game By Sega (R) Atari (R) 2600 (TM) and Compatibles You're racing your BAJA BUGGER over a dangerous, treacherous road. But your opponents aren't just trying to win the race, they're trying to make it the last race you run. To stay alive, jump your BAJA BUGGER and land on top of your opponents. Earn points by collecting flags, balloons and other prizes along the course. Watch out for PICK-UP TRUCKS and WEDGE CARS. They'll try to collide with you...and if they do, you're dead. Fasten your seat belt and get ready for the wildest strip of road you've ever been crazy enough to drive. (Editor's note: the cover artwork of the BAJA BUGGER looks like a crazed Volkswagon Beetle [or Bug]. Please note its similarity to Hanna-Barbera's "Speed Buggy.") USING YOUR CONTROLS 1. Insert the game cartridge while power is OFF. 2. Turn the power ON and you'll see the UP 'N DOWN title screen. 3. Use GAME SELECT switch to select ONE or TWO players. If no selection is made, you are automatically in the one-player mode. When two are playing, the players take turns, Player 1 using the LEFT joystick and Player 2 using the RIGHT joystick. The game will continue as a two-player game until the power is turned off. 4. Game Settings Choose the EASY game (which gives you five lives) or the HARD game (which gives you only three lives). Left Difficulty Switch: (B) or NOVICE chooses EASY JUMPS (A) or EXPERT chooses HARD JUMPS Right Difficulty Switch: (B) or NOVICE chooses 5 game lives (A) or EXPERT chooses 3 game lives EASY JUMPS: The jumps from road to road are very forgiving until Round 4; i.e., the game makes up for incomplete jumps from one road to another. From Round 4 on, the jumps from road to road must be exact. HARD JUMPS: These jumps must be exact from the start. 5. Press ACTION button on the left joystick to start the game. If no game is started after one minute of turning the game on, the play will automatically begin. 6. Use your four-way joystick to maneuver your BAJA BUGGER over the race course. Increase speed /^\ | Turn Left <-- --> Turn Right | \./ Decrease speed 7. Press the ACTION button to make your BAJA BUGGER jump. You can jump from one road to another, or from point to point on the same road. NOTE: The BAJA BUGGER can only jump while moving forward and can only jump straight up. If you pull back on the joystick control while jumping, the BAJA BUGGER will accelerate backwards until the jump "action" is complete. This is important because you may want to move backwards to collect flags and other prizes. 8. After the game is finished, you may use the ACTION button to start another game. HOW TO PLAY Screen and Game Play -------------------- The screen shows a race track which scrolls from the top of the screen to the bottom. (Ed. note: a picture of the game is placed here; however, it looks somewhat different than the actual game. I believe it is an artists' conception of the final product.) A flag display at the top of your screen indicates the number of flags you've collected. The flags in the display turn white as you collect them. Flags are simply collected by driving over them with your BAJA BUGGER. The course has at least two lanes which zig-zag across the screen and will intersect along the way. Some roads might lead to maps which let you jump across stretches of broken road. If you jump and land off the road at any point you lose one of your cars. In the EASY game, after you lose your fifth BAJA BUGGER, the game is over. In the HARDER game, after your third BAJA BUGGER is destroyed, the game is over. (There is a picture of BAJA BUGGER jumping on top of a car.) The number of BAJA BUGGERS you have remaining is indicated by the little car token shapes in the lower left corner of the screen. The courses become more difficult to survive as you progress from one road to the next, up to road nine. When all eight flags have been collected, you advance to the next, more difficult round. As your BAJA BUGGER travels along the track, you'll encounter various opponents along the way. They may come from behind or may be moving in front of you at a slower speed. You earn points for successfully jumping on top of them. If you collide with any of these opponents or jump up and off the track, you lose one of your BAJA BUGGERS. (There is a picture of BAJA BUGGER crossing over the grassy field to go from one road to another.) SCORING The score for the current player is displayed in the upper left hand corner of the screen. The score for Player 1 is shown in RED color. The score for Player 2 is shown in BLUE color. Each round you advance will bring new opponents to the track. You'll have to be more aware not to collide with them. Be ready to jump them for added points. Here's how you earn points: Collect Flag..........................75 Points Collect Cherry........................50 Points Collect Balloon.......................65 Points Collect Lollypop......................70 Points Collect Ice Cream Cone................75 Points Jump on Pick-up Truck................100 Points Jump on Flag Carrier.................125 Points Jump on Camaro.......................150 Points Jump on truck........................175 Points #7001-00901 (Ed. note: I have included the following section, Sega's advertisements for their other video games. Due to time constraints, I will be listing the games only with any other pertinent information.)

Emulation on mobile devices will drain your battery quite fast. I recommend playing while device is plugged into charger.
