Select 1 or 2 players.  Choose your exterminator.  Use the select button to
choose the character you wish.  Press start to select the character you
have chosen.
Note: When playing a 2-player game, the same character will be cloned for
each player.  Player 1 and player 2 will have different color uniforms.

Via Transfer Disc, the Home Ship will automatically beam you aboard the
first derelict space station.  As soon as the particles of your character
are fully reassembled, you can go about your mission.

Your main objective is to destroy as many Xenos as fast as possible before
the space station self destructs.  If you clear a sufficient

amount of Xenos in time, the space station will be declared "cleared of
Xenos" and a bonus will be awarded.  If you fail to clear out the Xenos,
then the space station will be declared "overrun by Xenos" and no special
bonus will be awarded.

Split screen play:  In a 2-player game, each player may independently
explore different parts of the various space stations.

Health:  Player is awarded 1000 Health units at the beginning of each game.
When all Health is gone, the game is over.  As you, the player, are
injured by attacking Xenos, your Health will decrease.  When game is over,
you must start a new game.  There is no way to continue.

There are two ways to regain Health.  One is by picking up special objects,
the other is by successfully clearing a space station of Xenos.  The award
for clearing a space station of Xenos is 200 Health units.
Space stations:  There are 8 space stations in all; each space station has
8 rooms per floor.
