Are you ready to plunge into the deep catacombs of these ancient ruins? If so, you may find the fabled Eyes of Guidance. These mythical jewels have eluded others such as yourself for many centuries. They are, perhaps, the second or third most sought after treasures in existence, right behind the Holy Grail and the lost city of Atlantis. The stories predate our-western history. However, since the dawn of written language, scholars have uncovered fragments of the story. Although the tale is incomplete, this is what we have been able to piece together: Search for the Lost Treasures... Long ago, before the formation of more "recent" civilizations like the Egyptians and Mayans, there was a culture that sprang up in a fertile valley nestled near a large body of water. Though the exact location has yet to be pinned down, most have ruled out the Nile or Amazon Basin regions (Some theorists say it could have been a vast continent-splitting river many miles across, which later receded and became the Grand Canyon in the southwestern portion of the United States of America, but other studies cite references to areas of southern Asia and a possible land bridge to Australia). This society prospered for a short span of time, but for some unknown reason it came to an abrupt end. There are links, however, between its history and other icons from seemingly separate cultures. For example, there have been remnants of pottery which show characters not unlike some Greek mythological beings. There are also graphic depictions of mummification that were thought to exist only in Ancient Egyptian society. Wall carvings showing what appear to be water-based life- forms remind one of Atlantis. And some archeologists even claim there are links to Stonehenge, based on Druid-like religious symbols which were uncovered. The Crystals... One reason for their disappearances is linked to time-travel. The popular myth is that they were either from another planet or were visited by aliens. These "visitors" left behind some crystals that gave people in this ancient society the ability to travel through time. Through some unknown means of navigation, these crystals created links with other cultures. This is where the term "Eyes of Guidance" originated. There is a large statue with eye sockets which are blank. Some say that the Eyes of Guidance could be placed in different combinations to allow time travel. The theory also holds that the Eyes of Guidance were used to time travel, amass unimaginable treasures, then travel again and leave the treasures around in "time vaults" while they continued on their journeys. Somewhere along the line, it is believed that the users of the crystals somehow merged with the cosmos and were lost in time, or they met with a much worse fate... ...The Ancient Tombs of Death... The search for the crystals heats up as more information is learned about these ancients. You, of course, are interested in recovering the Eyes of Guidance. So far you have discovered the ancient tombs which you believe hold the last traces of this ancient culture, and you are determined to find the crystals. You have, of course, heard rumors of a wandering spirit guide, but the details are very sketchy, at best. Perhaps your journey to this place will be profitable, if you survive, that is... Will Your Journey Be Profitable? When you have loaded the game properly, the Main Menu will appear. You will have two options: Start the game or go to the Options menu. Start Menu Begin a new game by selecting this option and pressing the Start button. The next screen you see is the player entry screen. One or two players can participate by pressing their respective Start buttons. Stage Select Your goal is to recover two "Eyes of Guidance" and recover ancient treasure. The world you select and the paths you choose may lead to different endings. To select a world, point and shoot! Options Menu There are several settings which can be modified. Using the "Justifier", pull the trigger to scroll down the list. When you wish to change a setting, highlight it, then press the Start button until you are satisfied with your selection. Move down the list and highlight Exit, then press the Start button to go back to the Main Menu and play the game with the new settings. Difficulty (Default = Medium) There are eight levels, ranging from Easiest to Hardest. Gun Looseness (Default = 3) This controls how close your "bullet" needs to be to score a hit. The range is 1 (bullseye) to 5 (close enough!). Life (Default = 3) The amount of "health" you have. It is represented on screen by red hearts on the top of the screen. When your health runs out, the game is over. Bomb (Default = 2) The number of bombs you start the game with. Continue (Default = 2) The number of times you can restart the game from your current position after losing your "life". Reload (Default = Manual) With Manual reload, you must point your gun off screen and pull the trigger to refill your ammo supply. With Auto reload, you don't have to aim off screen, but you will still use an extra shot to reload. You can however, still point off screen and pull the trigger to reload in Auto mode, if you wish. Audio (Default = Stereo) Set for Stereo or Monaural, depending on your system setup. Radiance Adjust (Default = 100) Helps to compensate for the amount of light in the room where you are playing. This is important if you are using a light gun, but not if using the controller. Gun Adjust Lets you "center" your gun's sights to get an accurate reading on your targets. Key Assign Switches the buttons on the Controller.
