Get Ready...: 

From the Title Screen, select options to call up five new options. 


Use the Effects and and Music options to change the volume balance of sound 
effects and music during play. Music Mode allows you to choose between Radio 
(the radio stations automatically change when you change cars) and Constant 
(the CD plays from the first track straight through to the last). Use Text to 
change the speed of the text display during play. 

Pick A Person: 

Before you get down to action, choose to play the part of one of four funky 
fellas, - it's the only way to keep track of your felonious achievements.

How To Play: 

Your life of crime begins on foot in Liberty City, in an area called South Park. 
For your convenience, a clean car is provided. There's more to GTA life than 
stealing cars, driving over innocent pedestrians, shooting cops and evading 
the long arm of the law. But not much more... Carry out jobs for The Mob to 
speed your raise from lowly junior joyrider to a member of one of the largest, 
most powerful family in the city. (Look out for suspicious vehicles and 
telephones: some trigger secret jobs - and sometimes those are the only way 
to escape a city). Do you have the balls to go all the way? 

City Life: 

Crawling with a mix of innocent pedestrians and criminal filth, GTA's fully 
functional cities also feature police and ambulance services. Note that 
paramedics attempt to attend to all pedestrian injuries, and the cops pay 
attention to scum like you. 
Fortunately, you have a portable Police Radio Scanner to listen in on the police 
reports regarding your crimes. (Incidentally, all vehicles receive one or more 
of the local radio stations). 
Death Or Glory: 

When you die you are taken to the nearest hospital, you lose all your weapons 
and retain your Bonus Multiplier; however, when you are arrested, you are taken 
to the nearest Police Station and allowed back on the streets with your wanted 
level reset to zero... in exchange for all your weapons and half your Bonus 
Multiplier (the score you can keep). 
Take Control! 

The functions of the controller buttons can be reconfigured using the controls 
option on the Title Screen. 

Default Controls 
Left Directional button: Turn Left 
Right Directional button: Turn Right 
"X": Forwards 
"TRIANGLE": Backwards 
"SQUARE": Enter/Exit 
"CIRCLE": Attack 
Select button: Pager/Last Message 
Start button: Pause 
L1: Next weapon 
L2: Previous weapon 
R1: Brake 
R2: Special 

Note that the Brake button becomes a Jump button (for leaping vehicles, for 
example) when you are on foot. Plus! The Special button is called so because 
it's responsible for more than one function depending on the context. When 
in control of almost all vehicles, push the Special button to sound the horn. 
When in a tank, press and hold the special button then press the left or right 
directional button to rotate the turret. 
Note: When running around the streets you can jump or slide over cars or car 
bonnets by pressing "Brake" and "Forward" at the same time. 

A Typical Scene: 

You nefarious behavior is brought to your screen courtesy of the DMA News chopper 
flying high above the city. Here's what you can expect to see during play... 

AREA NAME Your present location (note that a few areas have no name). 

PAY PHONE Walk over a ringing one to answer it - you might be given a Mob job 

MESSAGES When you receive instructions via phone the message text will appear 
at the bottom of the screen. Press the Select button to repeat the last message received. 

PAGER Today's affluent young criminals know that a pager is invaluable to keep 
up to date with share prices, hints, tips and illegal jobs. Press the select button 
to repeat the last pager message received. 

WANTED LEVEL The more crimes you commit, the more the cops want to bust 
your scrawny ass, This handy indicator shows just how careful you need to be. 

YOUR SCORE You earn points for every crime you commit. 

BONUS MULTIPLIER All points you score are multiplier by the Bounus Multiplier 
(which is incremented after every mission you successfully complete, so keep it up). 

LIVES You start with four, but extra ones are available 

MISSION ARROW The yellow arrow indicated the general direction of your 
intended target. 

CAR NAME Shows the type of car you occupy. 

WEAPON The one thing you happen to be holding, be it Pistol, Machine Gun, 
Flame Thrower, Rocket Launcher... or Fist. 

ROLLER DOOR Only attempt to drive through one when it's open. 

CRATE Dotted around the cities re many such containers holding some form of 
Special Item such as a weapon, Body Armor (takes three shots), Get Outta Jail 
Free Key (get busted - get released with your Bonus Multiplier AND weapons 
intact) and Police Bribe (instantly cancels your wanted level). Simply use a fist 
or weapon or vehicle to smash open a crate and revile its contents. 

HAYULP! Situated at key positions around the city. Ram one for some useful advice. 

Hold It!: 

It pays to take a 10 minute break in every hour of play, so put the action on 
hold... Press the Start button to freeze the action - and see a reminder of how 
many points are required to complete each stage. Press the Start button while 
the action is frozen to resume play.
