THE NINJA
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-What's Happening

Ever since Gyokuro came into power as the ruler of the once peaceful land of
Ohkami, the countryside has been in turmoil.

Gyokuro has sent his Ninja out to torment the people. He's even locked the
princess up in the basement of the castle.

Someone has to take a stand against the wicked Gyokuro if peace is ever to be
restored. Armed only with ninja darts, the brave Kazamaru accepts the
challenge. But he's going to need your help.

-Who's Who

You're Kazamaru. The good guy in the blue vest.

All the other Ninja - your enemies - include the following cast of evil
characters:

Gyokuro - This notoriously wicked leader of the revolting Ninja is very
crafty. He can even send out shadow Ninja. So beware.

Fire-blowing Ninja - He's fast. And fiery. So keep your cool.

Kuno-ichi - A very sly female Ninja who's good at hiding in shadows of
houses. Look out for her.

Ninniku - His name means "garlic". And you have to get rid of him to advance
to a new level.

Slashing Ninja - Watch out for their super sharp swords. They're deadly.

Darting Ninja - Not only do they hurl darts and sickles. They can also
multiply themselves!

Transforming Ninja - What makes them so dangerous is that they can disguise
themselves as rocks and can pop right out of the ground.

Footloose - They're the fastest runners of all the Ninja. And they attack in
devastating waves.

Ninja Wolves - Disguise as wolves, these "Ohkami" Ninja attack in packs.

Samurai - They're the best with a blade.

Runaway Horses - You can't kill them. So just stay out of their way.

-What's What

THE SECRET SCROLLS

Inside the Ohkami Castle are hidden three kinds of scrolls. They are often
hidden in unexpected places. So you'll have to look carefully for them. But
it will be well worth your efforts. For they all contain special powers.

These are the scrolls and their powers:

RED SCROLLS - The Secret book of Pinwheel Darts.
Once you find this scroll, you can use the power of the Pinwheel Darts. These
allow you to kill a number of enemy Ninja at one time.

BLUE SCROLLS - The Secret book of the Ohkami Feet. With this scroll, you will
be able to run many times faster than you normally can.

GREEN SCROLLS - The Secret book of the Ohkami Castle. Once you collect five
of these scrolls you'll be able to find the way to the princess' prison.

THE THIRTEEN LOCATIONS IN THE LAND OF OHKAMI

As you make your way to Ohkami Castle you'll travel through thirteen
different locations. Each is a little more dangerous than the one before it.

These are the thirteen locations:

1. Grassy Field - Beware of the Darting and Slashing Ninja.
2. A Craggy Cliff - Watch out for the rolling rocks. They could crush you
instantly.
3. The Prairie - This is where the Ninja wolves live.
4. A Shrine - Kuno-ichi often hides out here. So watch out!
5. A River Bank - To cross the river, jump the logs.
6. Town Street - Ohkami Ninja are everywhere you look.
7. A Small Town - Here's where you may have to dodge the Runaway Horses.
8. Residential Samurai Area - The strongest foes of all - Samurai and
multiplying numbers of Darting Ninja.
9. A Stone Wall - Start climbing here. But watch out for falling rocks.
10. Inside Terrace - Watch out for the emerging Footloose Ninjas, it's
destroy or be destroyed.
11. Inside Ohkami Castle (room with wooden floor) - You've finally arrived
inside the Castle, but proceed with caution finding the princess.
12. Inside Ohkami Castle (tatami room) - You're surrounded by Samurai and
Footloose Ninja - Your best bet is to vanish.
13. Inside Ohkami Castle - You're at your final destination. Find your way
through the Maze and you'll find the princess.

-Oops. Try Again.

At the beginning of each game, you get three lives. When you lose all of them
the game is over.

You will be awarded an extra life each time you reach the following scores:
30,000, 100,000 and 200,000 points.

-Know The Score

-Helpful Hints

* The Ninja will attack you from all directions. So remember to throw darts
in all directions.

* When you're in a very grave danger, don't forget to use your disappearing
capabilities - because you can still move, even when you're invisible.

* Try to accumulate as many BONUS POINTS as you can. It'll put you closer to
getting an extra life.

* As soon as you discover the way to the princess' prison, press the button
and go for it. There'll be no time to waste.
