Their brand of combat -- classic martial arts maneuvers mixed with anything-goes street brawling -- has turned them into walking lethal weapons. Now, the Lees must summon all their fighting abilities and cunning into meeting the greatest challenge of their lives -- rescuing Billy's girlfriend, Marion. She's been kidnap- ped by the Black Warriors, the savage street gang led by the mysterious Shadow Boss. The twins pursue the Black Warriors through the city streets and its outskirts. Finally they fight their way into the Secret Enemy Base. There, Billy and Jimmy meet the Shadow Boss. It's a battle to the finish, with Marion as the prize! Loading Instructions 1. With your TV off, hook up your video game system to your TV. 2. Plug in your joystick. If you're playing a one- player game, use the jack on the left. 3.

The Battle Begins Either one or two players can battle it out against the Shadow Boss's henchmen. Press the Select button on the console or move the joystick to choose which game you want to play. Press the Reset button or the joystick button to start the game. Press the Reset button during the game to stop playing and start a new game. Fighting Controls There are several fighting moves. Use the joystick and joys- tick button as described below to activate these blows. => Punch: Press the left button. => Elbow Punch: Move the joystick diagonally up and to the right and press the left button to throw a left elbow punch, and diagonally up and to the left and press the left button to throw a right elbow punch.

Weapons In some battles, the Black Warriors have weapons: bats, whips, and knives. To knock weapons out of an enemy's hands, punch or kick him. To pick up a weapon, stand over it and punch. (Press the left button.) Fighting It Out => Each player's score, remaining lives, and strength bar are displayed above the fighting screen. Re- maining units of time and the current high score are also shown. => You get 70 units of time to make it through each of the first and second missions. You get 90 units of time to make it through each of the third and fourth missions. In the middle of the third mission, the timer is reset to 90 units of time. Watch your Strength When you begin the fight, your strength bar is full. As you fight and receive blows, your strength is reduced. When the strength bar is empty, that life is over. When the number of lives remaining is 0 and the strength bar has been drained, the game is over. After each mission you complete (and halfway through the third mission), your strength bar is refreshed, but you don't earn more lives. You must get to the Shadow Boss's Enemy Base on your original 3 lives. Scoring The score is based on the kicks and punches you land and the types of weapons you use: Action Points Punch 50 Kick 100 Elbow 180 Jump Kick 200 Head Butt 200 Bat 200 Whip 200 Knife 500 Scenes of Battle Billy and Jimmy Lee clash with the Black Warriors in four different areas. The going gets tougher as the tough get going. Mission 1: City Slums Mission 2: Industrial Areas Mission 3: Outskirts of the City Mission 4: The Enemy Base of the Shadow Boss Battle Strategy => You can't drop your weapon, but it can be taken away from you during the heat of battle. Keep your distance while slugging it out. => Don't squander your lives early on! You'll defi- nitely need all your strength once you're locked in battle with the Shadow Boss. => Keep an eye on the timer. If your time runs out before you polish off your opponent, you lose a life. If it's your last life, the game is over.
