The Game Screen:

The game screen shows the score, energy meter, timer, name of character
in use, Super Combo Level Gauge, an Auto Mark (Auto mode only), Victory
Stars, and Bonus Messages.  The actual manual has a picture with labels,
but that's a little hard to do with text.

Fight Rules

Fight Conditions
    The time limit for one round is 99 seconds.  One match consists of
three rounds.  The first player to take two rounds wins the match.

Win Conditions
    Use all your fighting skills to beat the living snot out of your
opponent.  When your opponent's energy meter is totally red, you will
be declared the winner.  If time runs out, the player who has the most
energy wins the match.

    When both players' energy meters become totally red at the same time,
or if the energy meters are at the same level when time expires, the match
will be declared a draw.  A fouth and final round will be added.  Whoever
wins the final round wins the match.  If a draw occurs in the final round,
the match is over.

Victory Stars
    For every round you win, a star will appear under your energy meter.
There are several different kinds of stars.  A different star will appear
depending on how you win.

Game Modes

    Press START on the Title screen to access the Game Mode Selection
Menu.  Select the desired mode with the Control Pad, then press START.

Arcade Mode
    Pick a fighter and battle your way through eight different
computer-controlled opponents.  It's a one-player game, but a second
player can join in at any time (by pressing START on the second
(controller).  If you lose, you will have the option to continue.

VS Mode

    The classic two-player brouhaha.  Select a fighter and pummel a
friend (players can even select the same player)!  Match statistics are
displayed between fights.


Playing the Game

    After selecting the desired game mode, you need to choose a fighter.
Use the Control Pad to select a fighter and confirm by pressing any
attack button.  The selected character will change colors depending on
which button you use to confirm.

    Select the game speed and Manual or Auto Mode.


Manual / Auto

    All blocking functions are performed by the player.

    When you are not attacking your opponent, your character guards
automatically.  The number of available auto guards is unlimited.

Simple Command (Auto only)
    Super Combos can be executed by pressing two buttons simultaneously.
If your character has only two Super Combos, Combo #2 is executed even
if you enter the command for Combo #3.  Only Level 1 Super Combos are
available in Auto Mode.

    Your opponent can block Super Combos in the air while you are in
Auto Mode.

    To access the Option screen, select Option on the Mode Select screen
and press START.  Press Up and Down on the Control Pad to select the
desired option.  Press Left and Right on the Control Pad to change the
setting.  Press START to return to the Mode Select screen.

    Adjust the number of rounds per match.

Game Difficulty Level
    The more stars you highlight, the more difficult the opponents will
be to defeat.

Button Assignment
    Change the button configuration for your fighter's punches and kicks.

Time Limit
    Set the time limit for a round.

Options (continued)

    The level of damage can be changed from 1 to 4.  This determines how
much damage you inflict and how much you receive.

Game Speed
    Change the game speed.

Auto Guard
    Turn the Auto Guard on or off.

    Return the Mode Select screen.

Super Combo Level Gauge

    Each time you execute normal moves and special moves, your Super
Combo Gauge will build up.  Your level will increase when the gauge
reaches certain points, and then you will be able to perform Super Combos,
Custom Combos and Alpha Counter moves.

Super Combo
    Each character has three different Super Combo levels.  The higher
the level, the more damage you can inflict.  The amount of damage inflicted
by a combo can be controlled depending on the buttons pressed.  The more
buttons you press simultaneously, the more damage will be inflicted but
more power will be consumed from your gauge.


Super Combo Level Gauge (continued)

Custom Combo
    You can use an Original Combo by using the Super Combo Gauge.
When the Super Combo Gauge reaches Level 1 or above, press PPK or
KKP button simultaneously and your character will explode into a
Custom Combo.  Above the Super Combo Level Gauge will be the Custom
Combo Timer.

Custom Combo Timer
    While in the Combo, execute any punch, kick or special move to
make up your multi-hit combination.  Once the Timer expires, the Combo
will end.

Custom Combo Hints
    1.  Make continuous hits in the air and blow away your opponent!
    2.  Use special attacks to do more damage to your opponent.
    3.  Move fast!  You don't have much time to execute a special
    4.  You can make a deadly throw while pummeling your opponent!

Special Control

Avoid Being Floored
    You can avoid falling down from certain attacks, such as a Dragon
Punch.  By pressing the above command (Back, Back & Down, Down + Punch),
your character will roll forward and avoid being floored by your
opponent's move.

Block / Air Block
    When your opponent is attacking, press Back on the control pad
instead of fighting back to avoid taking damage.  Blocking also works
while you're in the air.

Alpha Counter
    When you block your opponent's attack, press the above command.
(Back, Back & Down, Down + Punch or Kick).  This will perform an Alpha
Counter attack, which is a quick counter move against your opponent.
Alpha Counters consume one level on your Super Combo Gauge.

Special Control (Continued)

Defensive Fall
    When you're being thrown, if you try to throw back at the right time,
the amount of damage you receive will be reduced and you'll fall safely
to the ground.

    Move toward your opponents and press either a Medium or Strong Punch
or Kick button.  Depending on the character, you may be able to execute
a throw or grab move automatically.

    To do some serious trash talking, press SELECT to taunt your opponent
(once per round).  Just make sure you have the fighting skills to back it

Recovering/Breaking Free
    If your opponent attacks you continuously, you may temporarily pass
out.  To recover quickly, press the Control Pad or any button rapidly.
If you do the same move when grabbed, you can break free.

The Alpha Warriors

Strength of Attack
    With Manual Control, the strength of the attack will depend on the
buttons pressed (see page 10 for more details).

    To ensure that your specified command will take effect, be sure to
hold it for a little while.

B, UB.  These are Up, Up&Forward, Forward, etc.  P is punch, K is Kick,
KK is two kicks, etc. P(P)(P), means 1, 2 or three punches together.
