WEAPONS 

You're a pretty rugged guy, but you’re still going to need some 
weapons to survive. So be sure to take advantage of what 
comes your way, including knives and guns. 


On levels one and four, your only way of escape 
from an approaching avalanche is down the 
side of a slippery, snow-covered mountain, and 
the only way down is on your snow board. 
You better travel down the mountain quickly 
and accurately because if you don’t, you’ll be 
buried by the avalanche! 


Weapons are used as follows 


Knife: To slash with the knife, press 
the A Button. To throw it, press the 
A and B buttons simultaneously. 
Once you throw a knife, it’s gone. 


AVALANCHE METER 


Watch this meter and be sure to stay 
well ahead of the avalanche or you’ll be sorry 


UZ1: Press the A Button to fire. To 
point left or right, use the D pad. A 
gun has 12 rounds of ammo; after 
you fire 12 times, you lose the gun. 
You can acquire the Uzi by knocking 
it out of your enemy's hands.

GET THE THIRD MONEY CASE AND SNOWBOARD 
YOUR WAY TO SAFETY 

Get to the third case of money before Quaten! Use your rope 
climbing skills and powerful punch to defeat Qualen’s henchmen 
who cross your path. After finding the last money case, snow¬ 
board your way to safety. Watch out for those falling trees! 

THE CLIMB TO THE TOP OF THE BiTKER LADDER 

Whew, that was a close one! Now it’s back up the mountain to 
safety, you hope! Watch your step - one wrong move and you’re 
buzzard feed...or swiss cheese if Qualen’s trigger-happy 
henchmen get you first. Only 200 yards to the ladder - if you 
can get past Travers. He's expecting your arrival, and he’s look¬ 
ing forward to filling you full of lead! 


You and your friend Hal fall into the clutches of 
Qualen, the psycho leader of a band of 
crazed fugitives. They’re looking for 
three metal cases that were lost in a plane 
wreck—together, the cases hold $100 million in 
cold cash—and Qualen positively insists 
that you help in the search. Luckily, you 

- manage to escape, and set out in search of the 

money in an effort to ransom Hal and save 
his life. To find the first money case, you must cross a forbidding 
mountain landscape and fight off a variety of enemies. Finally, 
you’ll have to outrun a huge avalanche at breakneck speed on 
your snowboard to survive this level and go on. 




LEVELS 


Here’s the basics of what you’ll find - and who 
and what you’ll face - in each level of 
CLIFFHANGER. 


THE ESCAPE FROM QUALEN 


IN SEARCH OF THE SECOND CASE 

Having recovered the first of the three money cases, you go in 
search of the second one. In this level, you must fight your 
way through treacherous forested terrain, while fighting 
evermore threatening enemies. And at the end: Heidon, one 
big, tough, body-slamming wrestler who doesn’t make friends 
very easily. 

ON TO DOUGLAS CABIN - AND JESSIE 

Now almost freezing to death, you seek the shelter of Douglas 
Cabin, the mountain hideaway where your friend Jessie 
anxiously awaits your arrival. Ail you have to do is find the 
cabin—and pull off some tricky climbing maneuvers 
while fighting enemies along the way. Not to mention 


ALL THAT MONEY LOST! 

Your friends are safe, but you’ve destroyed the loot and Qualen 
is out-of-his-mind mad about it! For you, it’s back down the 
mountain in a big hurry, with Qualen in hot pursuit at the con¬ 
trols of the hijacked rescue chopper. Look out for Qualen’s 
minions as they come at you with a vengeance! 

FACE TO FACE WITH QUALEN 

Now it’s payback time. Just you and Qualen, on the mangled 
helicopter, one slip away from plunging into the canyon below. 
This is it. Somebody’s going to take a tali, a long one. Make sure 
it’s Qualen.
