PICK IT AND WIN IT!
The Juggernauts game show consists of 4 weeks of events. Each week the lucky
contestant competes in all the available events in an attempt to win enough
cash to come back the following week, or at least to cover the tickets your
friends and family shelled out for. The amount of cash needed to qualify is
shown at the start of each week.
How much cash you rake in for any event varies. Winning guarantees a cash
bonanza, but speed against-the-clock or points scored also hike the stakes.
As for those losers too weak to beat a 238lb., muscle covered Juggernaut,
cash can also be won by successfully using any of the "cheats" made available
as you go.
Note: If you win every event in any one week, you will also get to play the
bonus event. Cash won in any week also carries over to the next. So big gains
in one week can make up for close shaves in another.
To see which events are available for the week, press the A BUTTON when you
see Kent and Bart beside the events board. The board will then appear in
close up with the available events flashing as follows:

Dr. Marvin Monroe's HOP, SKIP, AND FRY!
The object here is to take as many balls as possible-one at a time-from the
near side of the shock therapy checkerboard and deposit them in a goal at the
other side. The fun-filled challenge is that stepping on any of the black
squares sends a massive and virtually lethal dose of high voltage
electricity surging through your body.
* Page 8
Too easy? Then look out for two more electrifying hazards. Two Juggernauts,
Chunky and Extra Chunky, will also be manning the grid. If they get to you,
they'll flip you in the air. Land on a black square and you're cooked to a
crisp. Shocked? Try this-when the static charge balls at the bottom of the
screen spark, the white squares and black squares swap places! So tread
carefully...or get ready to amuse friends and relatives with that light
bulb-in-your-mouth trick for the rest of your life!
TO MOVE LEFT, RIGHT, UP, or DOWN ONE SQUARE, press the appropriate LEFT,
RIGHT, UP or DOWN CONTROL PAD ARROW.
TO JUMP LEFT, RIGHT, UP or DOWN TWO SQUARES, press the A BUTTON plus the
appropriate LEFT, RIGHT, UP or DOWN CONTROL PAD ARROW.

How many balls you dunk.
Number of attempts remaining.

CAPTAIN LANCE MURDOCK'S
SKATEBOARD CRASH & BASH
All the skateboarding inspiration Bart could ever need, Captain Lance Murdock
gave him right from his hospital bed. Now it's time to put those "fly in the
face of danger and have good insurance" words of wisdom to the test.
Skate down the launch ramp fast enough to take off at the end, and smack a
waiting Juggernaut right off his platform. However, not only does the
Juggernaut have a shield with which to deflect your attack and send you
hurtling into the pit below, but a bunch of his pals will try to slow your
skateboarding by smashing their fists through the ramp and grabbing your
board. So skate rad, and avoid the Juggernaut fists, slippery pizzas, and a
speed stealing grate. Once aloft, blast that Juggernaut with pinpoint

The amount of cash you win in this event depends on:

How fast you knock him off.
How far you get down the ramp.

SPRINGFIELD NUCLEAR POWER PLANT BOP 'TILL YOU DROP
Jousting has entered into the atomic age! Pound a Juggernaut with plutonium
rod jousting sticks atop the twin towers of the power plant.
As the two indicators at the bottom left and right of the screen show, it
takes 5 hits to send a contestant off the tower and into the bubbling sea of
nuclear waste below. However, if enough time elapses between hits, both Bart
and the Juggernaut can "win back" the hits against them.
Note: Block the Juggernaut's plutonium rod with your own attack moves, or
dodge it by ducking, jumping, or moving back.

MOE'S TAVERN SHOVE FEST
Get ready for wrestling action like never before: no ref, no rules, and no
rope! In a pure power, against-the-clock battle to knock your opponent out
of the ring, first you face legendary female Juggernaut, Snarla. Then, get
ready for Moe's Tavern's very own Olympian, Barney Gumble! A strict diet of
fried cheese and pork rinds has blessed Barney with a belly that'll bounce
you right off the mat! So give that girth ample berth!

HERMAN'S MILITARY MINEFIELD MAYHEM
Nostalgic war veterans and dedicated collectors of fine military antique
replicas have come by the bus load to see Herman's own Juggernaut event.
The two-part course consists of a parachute drop from the roof of the
Springfield arena and then a short sprint through a minefield.
The tricky part in the parachute drop is that as you fall, stealthy
Juggernauts are throwing knives and firing waterballoon mortar shells at you.
Three hits and you will plummet to the floor like a stone, and lose one of
your three runs at completing this event.
To move left or right, press the LEFT OR RIGHT CONTROL PAD ARROWS
To slow your descent, press the UP CONTROL PAD ARROW
To drop quicker, press the DOWN CONTROL PAD ARROW
Note: Too rapid descents lead to bumpy landings. Slow down before impact.
Your mission is to reach the end of the mine field without stepping on any
* Page 17
without being hit by any water balloon shells. Mounds of dirt indicate a
mine. Walk around them. Getting blown up by a mine or mashed by a shell loses
you one run at this event.
To further the real military combat feel, Herman has also added authentic
battlefield barbed wire. When you reach it, you will automatically start to
belly crawl under it, but keep a look out for those pesky mines!
To move, press the UP, DOWN AND RIGHT CONTROL PAD ARROWS
MILITARY MAYHEM CASH
Cash awards in this event depend on:
Reaching the end.
The time it takes you to reach the end.
* Page 18
Hidden at the top of 4 mammoth fair ground "test your strength" machines are
4 overly developed, angry, Juggernauts. As the event starts, these testy
Juggernauts will begin to shimmy down their poles. Your task is to stop them
from reaching the floor before the clock counts down to zero.
To do this, hit the base plate of each machine with your Krustyland mallet.
The harder you hit, the faster the Krusty heads shoot up the pole. The faster
the Krusty heads, the further the descending Juggernaut is pushed back up.
To increase the strength of your hit, swing the mallet only when the
indicator on the power meter is over to the far right hand side.
Use the gauge at the bottom center of the screen to judge which Juggernaut is
nearer the floor and more of a danger...because if he succeeds, it's
* Page 19
Tp move left or right, press the LEFT OR RIGHT CONTROL PAD ARROWS
TO GET SET TO SWING THE MALLET- STAND NEXT TO A MACHINE AND PRESS THE A
BUTTON. THIS ACTIVATES THE POWER METER.
TO SWING THE MALLET- WAIT FOR THE POWER METER INDICATOR TO MOVE TO THE FAR
RIGHT AND PRESS THE A BUTTON AGAIN.
Once you start to swing your mallet, you cannot move until you have
completed your swing.
You cannot hit a machine unless the Krusty head is stationary.
You collect cash in this event by:
Keeping all 4 Juggernauts off the ground.
Hitting a Juggernaut with a Krusty head.
Using the "cheat" to cream a Juggernaut.

THE KWIK-E-MART DOGGIE DODGE
The aim in this event is to reach the top of a series of ledges, made up of
Apu's Kwik-E-Mart dog biscuits and Mrs. Emily Winthrop's kindly donated
Canine College dog cages, before any of the specially trained Doggernauts-
like Chompy, Growly, Chewy and Mr. Bite- tear off any or your arms.
To help you, bones, attack-dog arm protectors, and sausage vines are
scattered around the course. Lure Doggernauts into jumping off the ledges
with the bones. Use each arm protector to fend off one Doggernaut attack.
Catch the swinging sausage links to get between ledges...before the
Doggernauts eat all the sausages!
The last stop is the mouth of a vicious Doggernaut guard dog. Luckily, he's
not that smart. Find a bone and send the beast into a short jump to doggy
Note: You can only hold one bone or arm protector at a time.

DOGGIE DODGE CONTROLS
To move left or right, use the LEFT/RIGHT CONTROL PAD ARROW BUTTONS.
To jump, press the A BUTTON.
To grab a vine, press the UP CONTROL PAD BUTTON.

. Some Doggernauts can be lured to jump off ledges even without a bone.
Stand near the edge and then avoid the Doggernaut as he tries to tear your
shorts off. Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.
* Page 22
DOGGIE DODGE CASH
Cash awards in this event increase with:
Reaching the top.
The more dogs you lure with the bones.
The more dogs you defeat with the arm protectors.
The fewer go's it takes you to make it.
* Page 23
THE BONUS EVENT
Win all the events in any week of the show and you get to play a bonus round
with a bonus cash bonanza! The aim of the event is to send Snarla reeling
away by dropping bodybuilding weights onto each end of her barbell.
When a weight appears along the top of the wall, pick it up. Move above the
left or right side of the barbell, and let go of the weight. If you hit, the
weight will slide onto the appropriate side of the bar. Then, repeat the same
process for the other side, and so on until this Juggernaut buckles and
finally goes crawling away.
Note: Each time you attempt the bonus round, it will take more weights to
defeat the Juggernaut and you will have less time to drop them.
* Page 24
To move left or right, use the LEFT/RIGHT CONTROL PAD ARROW BUTTONS.
To drop a weight, press the A BUTTON or the B BUTTON.
To pick up a weight, move over it.

THE BATTLE OF THE
Bart Simpson here, on my way to the Springfield Arena to do battle with The
Juggernauts, my all-time TV heroes.
It isn't going to be easy. There's nobody tougher than The Juggernauts
(except maybe yours truly), but I'll be fighting 'em on my own turf:
Krustyland Amusement Park, Moe's Tavern, and the Nuclear Power Plant, just to
name a few.
No one knows this, but I've got a whole new set of cool maneuvers AND a new
technological edge - I can CHEAT!
I'm psyched. I'm ready to rock and roll. On to victory, Man!
