You play as one of two kids and must rescue your neighbors before monsters destroy them. Once
all victims are gone (either rescued or killed), an "exit" door appears to let you leave the
level - unless monsters got them all and in that case, game is over. You can then leave the
level or continue to search for treasures and weapons.
Victims: You start with 10 victims. Body count goes down each time a monster kills one
victim. Game continues as long as there is still at least one victim remaining. You earn
bonus victims by earning points, but you may never have more than 10 victims at one time. If
you have 10 victims at bonus time, you earn an extra life. Each player starts with 3 lives.
There are hidden 1-ups.
Some victims are worth a lot of points (cheerleaders, baby, dog and explorer) while the
Barbecue guy is worth only 5 points but his BBQ feast is worth 100.
Password: You earn a password after every fourth level. Write them down. Press any buttons to
enter all four letters, then press Start or Select to continue to the appropriate level.
