Game Introduction

In this game you play as one of the four members of either the red or blue team. Players are identified by having photos taken by their respective cameras and can choose which team they want to play on. Computerized players are ID'd with "auto" and a Roman numeral between 1 and 4.

The game takes place within three areas within a major Japanese city (probably Tokyo). Diamonds are found all over; collecting them adds to a team's score.

Killing an enemy exposes their stash of diamonds, which can be collected by other players for score and replenishing lost stamina. Lives are unlimited, just so long as there is time enough to continue fighting.

When time expires, details are given on each player's diagraph (vital signs within battle) and diamond count.

Game Play

The game uses a triple-function "gun stick". Of course, the gun is used to fire on opposing players.

Movement is done through moving the "gun stick" in the appropriate direction. Pushing it forward advances, pulling back retreats, moving to either the left or the right strafes in the respective directions.

Function #3 is player rotation, simply accomplished by turning the gun in either direction.
