Atari 2600 Game Manual

Ikari Warriors

You are a member of those elite combat specialists, the Ikari
Warriors. Your buddy and you are on a special mission behind enemy
lines, and you've been sleeping, eating, and breathing jungle combat for the
last two weeks. Your tired, but that never affect your razor-sharp judgement
and your will to survive.

Your main weapons are machine guns, grenades, and your own
cunning in the face of danger. Sometimes you'll have a tank at your disposal,
which comes in handy when enemy fire is particularly brutal.

You move swiftly through the jungle, wading through rivers and
resting from time to time with the ruins of bombed-out buildings. You're
tunning out of ammunition and grenades but you know the battle can't last
forever. Sooner or later, one side is going to emerge victorious. Let's just hope
it's yours!

icons that up-grade your fire power. (See items.)

In your journey through the jungle you will occasionally encounter a river or
the sea. You will have to cross the water in order to continue. You can still
fire while you are in the water.

However you will still be vulnerable to their grenades, so watch out!

You receive a bonus life every 10,00 points. The fame is over when you lose
your last life. To win the game, you must rescue the colonel being held
