Game : Double Dragon
From Sega Master System World
Manual typed by SX Glory


-Double Dragon

In a city ravaged by war and corruption, law and order have taken a backseat
to terror and violence. Ruthless gangs rule the streets. Crime and bloodshed
are commonplace. The city lives in fear.

Your name is Billy Lee. Your twin brother is Jimmy Lee. On the streets they
call you the Spike, and your brother, the Hammer. That's because you are both
masters without equal in the ancient martial arts of Kenpo and Kung fu.
You've got what it takes to survive in the meanest streets in the world! And
now, you've got troubles.

The Black Warriors, the meanest of the street gangs, is out for revenge: They
want you dead. To bring you out into their territory, they've kidnapped your
sweetheart, the beautiful Mary Ann.

Now you must venture out into the war-torn wasteland to rescue Mary Ann,
defeat the Black Warriors, and return law and order to your city.

-Helpful Hints

Many of the gang members attack in predictable patterns. Learn these,
anticipate them, and use them to your advantage when planning your attack.

Many of the gang members will come up fighting even after being knocked down
a number of times. When an enemy is knocked down and starts flashing, it
means he's down for good. Move on to another target.
