of time.

   variences. Store at room temperature.

   into protective storage case.

3. Never attempt to disassemble your GAME PAK.

   agents can damage the GAME PAK.

5. For best results, play the game at a distance away from you television set.

6. Pause for 10-20 minutes after 2 hours or more of continuous game playing. 
   This will extend the performance of your GAME PAK. 



1. Insert the Ducktales GAME PAK and turn on your Nintendo machine. The 
Title page will appear. At this point, you may choose the difficulty level. 
By pressing the control pad left or right, you can choose either Easy, 
Normal, or Difficult. To begin the game, press the Start button.

2. The LAND SELECT screen will appear. This screen shows Uncle Scrooge at 
the helm of his control console in Duckberg. Here you can choose in which of 
the five treasure areas to begin your adventure. Use the control pad to move 
the glowing ball to the land of your choice, and press the A button to start 
your quest.


The controls for Uncle Scrooge are simple, but true mastery will take both 
practice and skill. 

Pushing RIGHT and LEFT on the controller moves Uncle Scrooge right and left. 
This works even when he is jumping or falling. REMEMBER THIS! It is a very 
important feature.

UP and DOWN are used for climbing up and down ropes, chains, and vines. Any 
time the pad is pushed UP and Uncle Scrooge is over a rope, chain, or other 
climbing surface, he will immediately start climbing. 

The A button is used for jumping. There are two types of jumps that Uncle 
Scrooge can do. The first is a regular jump. The longer you hold down the A 
button, the higher he can jump.  If Uncle Scrooge is holding still on a vine 
or chain when you try to jump, he will fall. Pushing UP while he is falling 
will stop the fall. 

The second type of jump that Uncle Scrooge can do is the Pogo-Jump. This is 
a way he can travel over dangerous ground, and repel certain enemies. This 
move can be tricky. To Pogo-Jump, press the control pad down, press the A 
button, (the jump button) and while Uncle Scrooge is in midair, press the B 
button. You MUST press the B button before he lands, or the Pogo-jump will 
not work. Uncle Scrooge will continue to pogo as long as you hold down the B 
button. You can use the control pad to direct Uncle Scrooge while he is 
Pogo-jumping. It is sometimes possible to make him swing his cane while he's 

The Pogo-jump is one of the ways that Uncle Scrooge can open treasure chests 
and remove rocks from his path. The other way is by "swinging" his cane. To 
make Uncle Scrooge swing his cane at an object, push RIGHT or LEFT on the 
control pad, (depending on which side the object is on) and press the B 
button. If there is no treasure within the object, Uncle Scrooge will just 
shake with the impact of the swing.

The Start button is used for pausing the game and reviewing the special 
items that Uncle Scrooge picked up during his adventure.

One final note: When Uncle Scrooge is damaged, he is invulnerable for a 
second or two. Take advantage of this time to get past tough opponents.

Amazon, the snow topped peaks of the Himalayas, the haunted house in 
Transylvania, the subterranean mines of Africa, and to the surface of the

five lands that are offered. You cannot choose a land that you have 
previously cleared.

lands) he will ask you if you wish to return to the Control Room or not. If

back to the Control Room in Duckberg. He will also give Uncle Scrooge a 
convenient ride (from time to time).

There are many traps here, and caution is necessary! The treasure in this 
land is the Sceptre of the Incan King.

haunted house. Listen to Huey's message to find the boss' room. The mirrors 
in this spooky abode can transport you to other parts of the house. The 
treasure of this land is the Coin of the Lost Realm.

different land to venture into the underground mines. Look for treasures 
here in the wildest of hiding places! The treasure in this land is the Giant 
Diamond of the Inner Earth.

here. If he hops in the snow, he can get stuck, and the ice is very 
slippery. The treasure in this land is the Crown of Genghis Khan.

land. Gizmo-Duck can help him find the entrance to the Moon Boss' room. The 
treasure in this land is the Green Cheese of Longevity.
