3. HOW TO PLAY

The story of Karnov begins in the peaceful village of Creamina,
where the Treasure of Babylon has been kept for centuries, hidden
away from the outside world.
The Treasure has been sought by Ryu, a huge and evil dragon, for
thousands of years. But now, Ryu has discovered the secret of
Creamina and descended upon the little village, accompanied by
all of his demonic cohorts.
Ryu has made off with the Treasure, leaving his monstrous minions
behind to terrorize the countryside. The helpless townsfolk have only
one hope:
Jinborov Karnovski, otherwise known as Karnov, a one-time circus
strong man with a unique talent for shooting fireballs.
Only Karnov can find a way through the monster-infested
countryside, to seek out the evil Ryu and regain the Lost Treasure
of Babylon for his people!

SUPER FIREBALLS

Karnov begins the game with three lives. If he is hit once, he
turns blue. If he is hit again while he is blue, he loses a life.
But if Karnov picks up a Super Fireball while he is blue, he
will be restored to his normal color.
Picking up Super Fireballs also increases Karnov's firepower.
Collecting two Super Fireballs will enable him to shoot double
fireballs, and collecting three will enable him to shoot triple fireballs.

CONTINUATION MODE

When Karnov has lost all three lives, the game is over. But the
Continuation Mode allows you to begin a new game from where
you left off.
When the -) symbol appears next to "GAME OVER," use the Control
Pad to move it down to "CONTINUE," then press the SELECT button.
Note: You may only continue the same game three times.

Sea faster.
