    The Lylat System. This small group of planets enjoyed years of prosperity. The
    inhabitants lived in peace. That is, until Andross came into view.

    Andross was born and raised on Corneria, fourth planet of the system, and grew
    to be a brilliant scientist.

    Dr. Andross had been focusing all his time and energy researching
    bio-technology. But, since Corneria was a peaceful planet, this research went
    in vain. Over time, his mind became twisted and his morals became demented.
    Andross went mad.

    One day, a weapon, secretly developed by Andross, was unleashed on the
    residents of Corneria. Andross had turned his back on his homeworld.
    Corneria's major cities were damaged. Luckily, Andross was captured by General
    Pepper, charged with treason and exiled to the planet Venom.


    Five years later, reports from Corneria's observation system had confirmed
    disturbing activity from Venom. General Pepper sent three members of the Star
    Fox team, James McCloud, Pigma Dengar and Peppy Hare, to investigate.

    When they arrived at Venom, Pigma betrayed his teammates and turned them over
    to his new master, Andross. Peppy barely managed to escape and returned to his
    homeworld to report McCloud's fate to his son, Fox.

    Consumed with hatred, Andross declared war on the Lylat system. Slowly,
    Andross has taken control planet by planet. Now, Andross is advancing on

    General Pepper knows that Corneria's army alone cannot stop Andross. In his
    hour of need, he has turned to the new Star Fox team to save Corneria and free
    Lylat from Andross' evil clutches!



    ( Fox McCloud
    The young leader of the Star Fox team, Fox is always at the forefront of the team's attack. Because of his fantastic flying skills and quick decisiveness, he is an extremely respected leader.

    Peppy Hare )
    Peppy is the senior member of the team, a good pilot with vast knowledge and
    a good friend. A long time friend of Fox's father, Peppy has watched Fox grow
    from a young pup to an experienced pilot.

    ( ROB64
    Operating from the mothership Great Fox, ROB works closely with the Star Fox
    team offering support when necessary.

    Arwing )
    The primary fighting machine of the Star Fox team. With the G-diffuser
    anti-force generator, the Arwing is able to perform many different tasks.


    ( Slippy Toad
    He's the most energetic and positive member of the team, although sometimes
    Slippy can go a little overboard. While he's not the greatest pilot, he
    compensates with his mechanical skills.

    Falco Lombardi )
    A member of the avian face, Falco is a natural pilot. His quick temper and
    overconfidence make him the wildest member of the team. While he often gets
    into arguments with the other team members, he is loyal to the Cornerian

    ( Landmaster
    The anti-aircraft Landmaster rotation tank is equipped with a laser cannon and
    two jets, which allow for temporary hovering.

    Great Fox )
    The dreadnought-class flagship of the Star Fox team. With its large plasma
    engine, it can quickly travel between planets.

    Correctly insert the Star Fox 64 Game Pak into your Nintendo 64 system and move the POWER switch to the ON position. When the Title screen appears, press START and the menu screen will appear.
    During the game, you will encounter a lot of cinema sequences. while most of
    these sequences can be bypassed by pressing START, it's a good idea to check
    them out. If you're playing the game for the first time, you cannot bypass the
    cinema sequences.

    On the Menu screen, select the desired game mode or set the game options.

    Main game
    As the description reads, this is the main one-player adventure (see page 12).

    When playing the game for the first time, it's a good idea to select the
    Training mode to get a good feel for the Arwing. Follow the instructions that
    appear on screen. To quit, press START and select "QUIT TRAINING."


    VS Mode
    Up to four players can play in three different Vs. modes. For more
    information, see page 22.

    Game scores are saved to memory. Here, the top ten scores are shown (see page

    Change the sound setting during the game with the Control Stick. Changes will
    be saved to memory. Test the sound by pressing the R Button.

    Stereo: Select this option when using a TV with stereo sound. If the left and
    right sound outputs from your N64 Control Deck are not properly connected to
    your TV, some sounds might be improperly placed or inaudible.

    Mono: Select this when you use a TV with monaural sound.

    Headphones: Choose this mode to enjoy a more natural sound when you use

    Music Adjust the volume of the background music.
    Voice Adjust the volume of the voices.
    SE Adjust the volume of the sound effects.
    Back up To erase saved data, select "YES."

    Note: The Game Pak memory saves the top 10 scores, not the progress of your



    In the main game, you are Fox McCloud, leader of Star Fox. Follow the
    instructions given to you by General Pepper and clear each area.

    1 Map Screen
    The first objective is to free Corneria from Andross' army. The final
    objective is to defeat Andross at Venom. How you get to the final objective
    is up to you. Make sure you choose your path wisely.

    For example, in Corneria...
    If you play normally, most of the time you will fight the enemy boss, finish
    the level and proceed to Meteo. However, if you satisfy certain conditions,
    you will fight a different boss, and you will proceed to Sector Y.

    In some areas, your next destination will be branched out. The story and
    difficulty level will change depending on the route you take.

    Here are the areas of the game:
                           Aquas     Zoness     Sector Z
               Sector Y                                     Area 6
    Corneria               Katina    Solar      Macbeth               Venom
               Meteo                                        Bolse
                           Fortuna   Sector X   Titania
    On the Map screen, the route time and colors of the route indicating
    difficultly level (blue = easy, yellow = medium, red = hard) will be displayed.

    [ PICTURE: Map screen ]

    If you don't like the current route, press START and select "RETRY COURSE."
    You'll replay the course you just completed, but it'll cost you one Arwing
    (if you try it during gameplay, you'll have to start that level over). Also,
    if you've selected a route with a high difficulty level, select "CHANGE
    COURSE" to change routes.


    2 3D Scroll Mode and All-Range Mode
    The one-player game is split up into two parts.

    3D Scroll Mode
    In the 3D scroll mode, you can move in all directions, but if you go too far
    in one direction, an arrow mark will appear on the screen preventing you from
    going any further.

    On the way, there will be a check point indicating the halfway point. If you
    pass through it, your machine will be partially recovered. If you pass through
    it, and are defeated, you will start that level over at the check point (all
    damage will be recovered).

    All-Range Mode
    In the All-Range mode, you'll be in a square-shaped area and you'll be able to
    fly anywhere you want. The Arwing will automatically U-turn if it gets to the
    edge of the playing field.

    Radar appears in the bottom right corner of the screen. Objects on the field
    or the location of the boss will appear on the radar.


    3 Screen Display

    [ PICTURE: Screen shot ]

    Shield Gauge
    If your machine takes damage, your shield gauge will reduce gradually. When
    the gauge disappears completely, your machine will crash. Find shield rings
    to increase your shield gauge.

    Boost Gauge
    The indication of energy consumed when using the boost and brake. While using
    them, the color gradually changes to red. It will change back to blue if you
    stop using it. Until it returns to its original condition, you won't be able
    to use boost or brake.

    Shield Ring
    Shield rings acquired appear here.

    Enemy Shield Gauge
    When the enemy boss appears, this gauge will be displayed. When the boss takes
    damages, the gauge will reduce. If Slippy has left the battle, this gauge will
    not appear.

    Aiming Cursor
    The laser goes through the center of the two squares. To remove the cursor,
    pause the game and press the R Button.


    4 Arwings power up items
    Some enemies that you shoot down will leave behind helpful items.

    The single laser will change to the twin laser, and the twin will change to
    the hyper laser. The powered up laser can be carried over to the next area.

    Smart Bomb
    The number of smart bombs will increase by on.

    Supply Ring
    Shield gauge will recover slightly.

    Middle Supply
    Shield gauge will recover more.


    Shield Ring
    If you get three shield rings, you will increase the maximum value of your
    shield gauge. At the same time, the gauge will be recovered significantly. If
    you get another three, you will get a 1-up. You can take the rings you didn't
    use to the next stage.

    Wing Repair
    If your Arwing takes too much damage, your wings will be destroyed. Any
    powered-up lasers will be gone and your flying ability will be hindered.
    If you grab the Wing Repair, or if you finish the stage, the destroyed wings
    will automatically be fixed.

    Sometimes during the game, a yellow mark will appear at the top of the screen.
    This means that ROB64 is trying to contact you. Press C (Up) to respond.
    Sometimes ROB64 will give you a container. Shoot the container to receive the
    helpful item inside.


    5 Teamwork
    Help your teammates when they're in trouble!

    During the game, some of your teammates may be chased or attacked by enemies.
    If you don't help them, they'll end up leaving the battlefield. Help them by
    taking out the enemies.

    Friends can be attacked even though it doesn't appear on the screen. Sometimes
    on the left and right side of the screen, the word "HELP" will appear in
    different colored arrows that correspond to the teammate. Make sure to help
    them out immediately.

    Press START during the game. Here you will see the amount of damage each
    teammate has taken (if any). Members who have left the battle are indicated
    by the word "DOWN" and an "X" will be across their picture. Damaged members
    will be recovered when the stage is clear. The amount of damage recovered
    depends on how many enemy machines are shot down.

    Teammates leaving battle
    Teammates that have left the battle will return to Great Fox to have their
    ship repaired. Because this takes time, they won't be able to join you in the
    next stage.


    Special Power
    The members of the Star Fox team have different strengths. Because of this,
    it's a good idea to keep each member safe.

    Peppy can analyze enemy weakness and give Fox appropriate advice. It's always
    a good idea to have Peppy at your side.

    With Falco, you're more likely to travel through routes with a higher
    difficulty level.

    Slippy's specialty is analyzing the strength of bosses. He can also display
    their shield gauge on the screen. If Slippy's not around, you won't be able to
    tell how close you are to defeating a boss.


    6 Rank
    Total hits/One up
    When you clear each stage, the number of certain enemies shot down and
    buildings destroyed will be displayed. This number will be totaled every time
    you clear the stage. When the number reaches 100, the number of remaining
    Arwing's will be increased by one. The number can be increased depending on
    the type of enemy, the way it was defeated or the time it took to shoot it

    When the game is over, your score will be saved to memory. The top ten scores
    will be saved. You can see these scores if you select "Ranking" on the Menu

    If your score is in the top ten, you can register your name on the Name Entry

    Check the order of the names and scores on the Ranking screen.

    To check the statistics of each score, push [down] or [up] on the Control
    Stick, then press the A Button.

    The scores are listed in order of highest number of hits. If the total number
    of hits are the same, whoever has more remaining Arwings will have a higher


    7 Advice to attack Andross
    Boost and Brake
    The boost (C [left] Button) is very effective when chasing a distant enemy or
    when you need to quickly move through a tight space.
    If you use the brake (C [down] Button), you'll have an easier time passing
    through narrow and complex areas.
    When using the boost or brake, the meter in the upper right corner will change
    from blue to red. Once you stop using it, you'll have to wait for the meter to
    return to its original color to use it again.

    If you're being chased from behind, break away by doing a somersault (Press
    [down] and C [left] or a U-turn (Press [down] and C [down]. It's a very
    effective maneuver. U-turns only work in All-Range mode.

    Rolling/Smart Bomb
    When you're being attacked by a lot of enemies, use the Rolling technique to
    repel their bullets. You'll take less damage this way (Press Z or R twice).

    Another thing you can do is to use the Smart Bomb. It's a great weapon to
    have, but you only have a limited number of them, so use them wisely.

    If the Arwing's wings become broken, ROB will provide a wing repair. Make sure
    to look for it.


    VS Mode
    On the Menu screen, select either "Point Match," "Battle Royal" or "Time
    Trial." Two to four players can compete (provided you have enough

    Connecting the controller
    The characters used depend on which controller socket is used.

    1 Fox 2 Peppy 3 Slippy 4 Falco

    If a controller is not being used, the screen not in use will display various
    camera angles of certain players. Make sure the controllers are connected
    before you turn the power on.

    Some players may have better skills than others. To make the game more even,
    you can adjust the handicap level by pressing [left] and [right] on the
    Control Stick. There are three levels. As the number increases, the Shield
    Gauge meter will decrease significantly and you will not be able to take as
    many hits.

    There are three special stages in the Vs. mode. Two of these special stages
    are available in each of the three Vs. mode games. You may select the stage
    you like. Select the desired stage with the Control Stick. In Vs. mode, if you
    go to the edge of the map, you will warp to the other side.


    3 Game modes

    Point Match
    Players compete for the number of machines they shoot down. When a player
    shoots down the set number of machines, that player is the winner (the number
    can be set from 1 to 5). If you shoot down a rival, you'll receive a [star].

    Battle Royal
    If a player loses his machine, he must leave the battle field. Whoever is left
    standing is the winner. One Arwing is given to each player.

    When you get locked on by another player's homing attack, you get an L mark
    (this is common for each mode).

    You cannot use a Smart Bomb until you have one in reserve (this is common for
    each mode).

    Time Trial
    Whoever takes out the most machines within the allotted time is the winner.
    If you get shot down, the number of enemies that you shot down resets to
    zero. The time limit can be set from 1 to 5 minutes.



    Secret of the Map screen
    * This game is full of many hidden surprises
    * Most areas have their own secret mission
    * If you clear the area, a group of stars will shine around the cleared area
    * Don't stop playing when you defeat Andross. Try to clear every area

    Branching out
    In some areas, if certain conditions are met, your path will branch out and
    you will be able to take a different route. Below is a listing of the
    conditions you need to meet:

    Corneria: Keep Falco alive and fly through the seven stone archways.
    Meteo: Fly through every warp gate.
    Fortuna: Defeat Star Wolf within the allotted time.

    Macbeth: Destroy the eight switches and shoot the switcher box.
    Zoness: Destroy every search light.
    Sector Z: Shoot all six missiles.


    In each area, if you shoot down enough enemies, you will be eligible to
    receive a medal. If you receive a medal for each area, something special will
    happen. Below is a listing of the minimum number of necessary hits required
    for each area to receive a medal:
    Corneria   150        Bolse      150        Aquas      150
    Meteo      200        Sector Y   150        Zoness     250
    Fortuna     50        Katina     150        Sector Z   100
    Sector X   150        Solar      100        Area 6     300
    Titania    150        Macbeth    150        Venom      200
    NOTE: In addition, each team member must be alive at the end of each area.

    Rumble Pack (TM)
    The Star Fox 64 game is compatible with the Rumble Pak accessory (single
    and Vs. mode). If you connect the Rumble Pak accessory to the controller, when
    your machine is hit during the game, you will feel different degrees of
    vibrations. You'll feel like you're actually sitting in the cockpit of the

    * Before using, make sure to read the Rumble Pak accessory instruction
    booklet carefully.
    * Make sure that the Control Deck is OFF when inserting the Rumble Pak
    * Be careful when handling the batteries.
