Somebody's wrecking New York City! Or maybe it's a whole
gang! Wherever you go, hooligans jump out and knock you down.
Can you imagine the noive!
For instance, try strolling on the wharf, and get flapped by
a fish. Or go skateboarding in Central Park -- you'll get shredded
by dive bombers. And with loonies everywhere, what a time for
a brownout in the Bronx!
This is what the NOID is up against, and more! In fact, it looks
like his duplicate Mr. Green is causing all the antics. That's double trouble!
But the NOID's got plenty of ammo -- supernatural powers,
incredible inventions, and a whiz-bang yo-yo. He just needs a pizza
every now and then to keep him going!
CONTROLLING YOUR NOID
Move left or right. Press the control pad LEFT or RIGHT.
Climb up or down. Press the control pad UP or DOWN.
Jump. Press the button A. Press the control pad while
jumping to move left or right. The longer you hold down the button,
the higher you'll jump.
"Shoot the Moon." Press button B. Your yo-yo will spin out and back
in a "shoot the moon" trick. Press buttons A and B together to yo-yo
PLAYING THE GAME
Your up against a cityful of tricksters. And they're all trying
to knock you silly! Bonk them out with your yo-yo, or speed past
them on one of your incredibly inventions. And speeds's the word,
since you don't have much time!
Jump through scrolls in the air to grab them. This boosts up
your magical powers. Better yet, boink the large ones open with
your yo-yo to get the symbol for a spell. Once you have a symbol
(and enough power to use it), you can cast the spell at the pranksters.
You start each round with 3 chances to make it through. "Shoot
the moon" with your yo-yo to stop any rascals in your way. If they
touch you, you lose 1 chance. As long as you have chances left,
the round starts again. But if you lose all your chances, the game ends.
The scoreboard at the bottom of the screen shows how you're
doing. You earn points for every ruffian you put out of business.
Watch your time! You start each round with 140 units of time.
The count down is fast, and if you run out of time, down you go
and the round ends.
As you gain more scrolls, you build up your power to spin
magic spells. To use a spell, press DOWN on the control pad and
press the B button simultaneously. If you have a symbol for a magic
spell and enough power to support it, the magic will attack the hooligans.
SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK
The NOID romps all around New York, chasing after the mysterious
NOID look-alike who's behind all the shenanigans. Across the Wharf,
through Central Park, and up to the rooftops, the NOID takes off after
the brigands. If he survives the brownout in the Bronx, the NOID must take
to the skies against air pirates. But all the time he's got to fend off
the playful ruffians who would love to see him tumble. There's plenty
of land, water, and air action -- if the NOID can stay on his feet!
HYPERBOARD- Zip past PIZZA CRUSHER- Mamma Ornithopter - Frolics
those other dudes on Mia! What a way to go - like a bird in this
this four-wheeled - across the rooftops pigeon-chaser.
speedster. on the biggest, bounciest
pizza masher ever built!
THE PIZZA CONTEST
After every odd-numbered round, the NOID competes in a
pizze-eating duel. This is to power him up.
If you start falling, press the control pad LEFT or
RIGHT. You just might be able to save yourself.
Figure out how to use your inventions, and what they're best for. Then
put them to work!
Get as many magic scrolls and symbols as you can.
These will help you eat hearty in the pizza contest.
There's a special bonus area hidden in the ice skating area. Jump high
and wide to find it!
