What's Happening

You are the Super Rider, attempting to carry out five sets of instructions. This is done in
five rounds, one set per round.

You will encounter both air and ground battles. Thus, your vehicle can alternately
become an aircraft, a car, or a motorcycle.

When the game begins, the timer starts counting down from 999. As long as there is time
remaining, play can be continued even if your vehicle is repeatedly destroyed. When the
time is up, play continues until your reserve supply of vehicles has been depleted.

THE OBJECT OF THE GAME is to carry out as many missions as possible while
avoiding enemy fire. These missions entail collecting various items on screen and
destroying enemy vehicles. Also, try to increase your score, as this can build up your
supply of vehicles.

THE GAME ENDS when the timer runs out and all of your vehicles have been
destroyed. The game will also end when you have successfully completed all five
rounds/missions.

Your Vehicle

You'll begin the game with a high-performance motorcycle.

Collecting the following four parts will automatically transform your motorcycle into a
car:

Right front section
Left Front Section
Right rear section
Left rear section

The resulting car is a twin supercharger equipped with a gun that fires two projectiles
simultaneously.

Collecting the following two parts will automatically transform your car into an airborne
vehicle:

Right turbojet engine
Left turbojet engine

The resulting aircraft is a twin supercharger car made airborne by two turbojet engines.

WHENEVER THESE PARTS APPEAR ON THE ROAD, BE SURE TO PICK THEM
UP. To do so, have your vehicle touch them when they appear. Once collected, each
part will appear on the right side of the screen.

As soon as the required parts have been collected, the automatic transformation occurs.
Thereafter, you can transform back and forth between

Motorcycle and car by simultaneously pressing buttons 1 and 2 on the control pad, during
a ground battle. However, once your ground vehicle has transformed into an air vehicle,
you will remain airborne until the round ends.
