Game Introduction

The name of the character you control is Guaranos. The names of the evil warriors you must fight are Solon, a sword man, a blockhead fencer; Irene, a woman soldier, a mighty lady; Zaid, a club giant, a big good-for-nothing fellow; and Agathon, a two swordsman, a clumsy fighter. Other enemies include a fire-breathing demon; Maitreya, the amazon archer; and Gauis, the warrior of death. The object of the game is to find the treasure. Before you can get to the treasure, you have to destroy Gauis. After you kill him the first time, he will become a skeleton and you will have to fight him again. To kill him again you will have to strike him in the skull. After you have defeated Gauis the second time, you will find the treasure and then the game will begin again.

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

Your warrior "Guaranos" can generate a temporary force field during the obstacle course phases (when weapons and bats fly at him) by rapidly moving the shield up and down. This can only be done once per level. During the combat phases, Guaranos can become invincible (flashing golden) for a short time. To do this, you must gather 4 swords in the obstacle course phase by striking them and then bending to pick them up from the floor. This will turn your sword red. Then, during the combat phase, strike the opponant's shield several times. After the invinciblity has ended, Guaranos' armor will be repaired also. This can only be done once per level.

On the third level during the obstacle course, Guaranos can jump up onto the railing behind him and avoid all the flying weapons. To do this, press and hold the shield up when there is a break in the railing.

Shurikens thrown during the obstacle course (level 1) are worth bonus points if they are struck just after they appear, as opposed to when they circle back towards Guaranos.

Most enemy warriors will stop fighting and "jump for joy" when they remove your chest plate. You can defeat a difficult enemy by letting him remove your chestplate, and then strike him twice in the same spot while he's dancing.

The third green axe knight on the third level will often freeze up (cease moving) after some time. If you are having trouble beating him, stay out of range and strike at his weapon and shield until this happens. You may then attack without the knight attacking or defending.

Some enemies swords may be broken, rendering them helpless. Simply strike the weapons about 25 times to break them. The following enemies weapons can be broken.. (Stage 1) Solon, Irene (Stage 2) Zaid, White Armored Giant

You can pick up the mace of the White Armored Giant in stage 2. The mace has a much stronger attack than the sword, but cannot break other weapons.
