Getting Started 



1. Set up your Genesis and Sega CD according to the instructions in 
the Sega CD System instruction Manuel and plug in Control Pad 1. 

2. Open the Sega CD disc tray r insert the Iron Helix CD label side up 
and close the door, 

3. Turn on your TV or monitor, and then turn on your Genesis. The 
Sega CD logo should appear on your screen, (If nothing appears, 
turn off your TV and Genesis, and make sure everything is set up 
correctly.) 

4. Press any Button to begin the intro to the game. (You can skip the 
first part of the intro by pressing any Button. There are two parts to 
the intro, so you'll have to press one of the Buttons twice to get to 
the Main Menu.) 

5. After the intro is finished, you will be presented with the Main 
Menu. 


YOUR GOAL is to send a remote-controlled probe on board a renegade 
spaceship. Somehow you must find a way to stop the ship before it 
delivers a horrible doomsday weapon on an alien planet. The crew of 
the ship is dead, but hidden throughout its many rooms are video dues 
which may help you destroy the ship and its deadly guardian robot, The 
Defender . First, you must search for and find DNA left by the crew, then 
you must explore ail of the rooms on board looking for the hidden 
videos. Use clues you find to booby-trap the deadly Defender and then 
use your wits to stop the ship before it is too late.

How to Play 

You must stop the Jeremiah Obrian from reaching and destroying the 
peaceful planet of Calliope To do so, you will enter the Obrian with a 
remote probe with the purpose of finding a way to stop the ship, The 
Obrian has a robotic Defender that hunts down intruders. You have 
three probes to work with. Good luck. 

There are four phases in iron Helix, You must complete aII four phases in 
succession to win the game. 

Phase 1; Collecting DNA 

Move a round the ship to collect t he Captain, First Officer and eith er the 
Chief Engineer or Weapons Officer's DNA. Use your scanner (the circle 
around the direction arrows) to locate organic material. When a direc- 
lion on the scanner is highlighted, rotate to that direction and use the 
robotic arm to scan for samples and acquire DNA. 

Phase 2: Locating Video Clues 

You need to find two messages: one to stop the Defender robot and the 
other to destroy the ship. Use the robotic arm to log onto data ports 
when "Message in Data Port" appears on your screen. 

Phase 3: Eliminating the Defender 

The video dues will give codes that you can use at a location specified 
i n th e du e to d est roy the Defe nde r, 0 nee a 11 h at locat ion, use i he s hi p's 
computer (in a data port) to enter the access code. 

Phase 4: Destroying the Ship 

When the Defender is destroyed, you have about five minutes to input 
the code to destroy the ship before another Defender is launched, If 
you complete these stages flawlessly, you win the game.

The Story 

It is far into the future, and the Earth is in a state of cold war with an alien 
race known only as the Thanatosians. Humanity, having solved its own 
problems of disease and prejudice, has found a new enemy on which to 
vent its hatred. 

Soon all of Earth's resources are directed towards preparations for an 
impending war that could occur on a galactic scale. The Earth s military 
i n d ustri a I co m p’lex begins to work feve ris hly on powerful new wea pons 
of doom, and tension mounts as armies of ships are deployed. 

Somewhere in a highly classified sector of space, a powerful ship carry¬ 
ing a doomsday weapon is participating in war game maneuvers. The 
ship is a Cerberus Gass Destroyer named the Jeremiah Obrian, and it 
contains a payload so secret that even the crew is ignorant as to its 
exact nature. The ship is carrying a new weapon considered to be the H- 
bomb of its era, armed and ready to be used against the Thanatosians, 

The war game is terrifyingly realistic, perhaps too realistic for the ship's 
computers. The computer takes control of the Obrian and initiates an 
attack pi a nf or Calliope, a small Earth-likeThanatosian planet. The ship's 
crew and Captain attempt to override the computer, but the computer 
fails to recognize the Captain's DNA access code and ignores all at¬ 
tempts to stop the ship. 

Unbeknownst to the crew, the weapon they are carrying contains a 
deadly virus which quickly attacks the cells of an organism, mutating 
DNA and rendering the body unable to carry out vital metabolic func¬ 
tions, Within hours, an infected organism dies, deprived of its ability to 
manufacture vitai metabolic proteins. 

Unable to resist the virus or Interface with the computers, the crew dies 
off one by one. The shi p heads towards Cal liope carryi ng a weapon that 
will start a war that could end all life in the universe. 

Meanwhile, only a few high-ranking officials are aware of the ship's 
cargo and programmed target. Precious time elapses before word 
reaches military HQ, but by then the Cerberus Obrian is all but unstop¬ 
pable, programmed to deliver its virulent payload swiftly and with deadly 
precision. A high-priority emergency beacon is broadcast in the slim 
hope that someone, somewhere, might intercept the ship. 

Someone does receive that beacon, and that someone is YOU!

IRON HELIX 





























































Where You Come In 

You are on board the Science Ship Indiana, it is poorly manned and 
weaponless,, but it does have a powerful tractor beam. It could latch 
o nto t he Qbrian an d low you a long wh i le you fi g Lire out a wa y to stop it, 
Your ship may be slow, but what it lacks in speed it makes up for with 
navigational accuracy. You're able to plot an intercept course and pro¬ 
ceed to the correct coordinates. 

With a potentially deadly virus on-board, your only option is to send in 
a probe and hope it can get past whatever defense mechanisms the 
ship might possess. The only hope of destroying the ship or disarming 
the weapon is your Darwin 5 probe. With just six hours before the 
Obrian breaches Thanatosian space, you have little time to spare. 

The Zoological Probe you carry can only observe and gather 
microsamples of organic life. It cannot attack or even defend itself, but 
it can interface with the Obrian 1 s computers, and that just might be 
enough for you to sabotage the mission and avert a holocaust. 


The Main Menu 

Once the introduction is complete, you will be at the Main Menu. The 
Main Menu consists of three numbers at the top of the screen (the Skill 
Levels), and four o ptio ns be I o w t he Ski II Le ve I s: Beg i n N e w Ga me, Loa d

IRON HELIX 














Playing Iron Helix 

To successfully finish Iron Heiix, you must complete four separate phases 
of the game, A status screen will inform you when you complete each 
phase. 

Phase Collecting DNA 

To complete Phase l r you need to locate three different DNA samples 
from high-ranking crewmembers (Captain William Parrish, First Officer 
Catherine Ingram and either Chief Engineer Joseph Geast or Weapons 
Officer Robert Benedetti), These crew members' DNA will allow you 
access to computer banks and secured areas of the ship. 

Finding DNA Samples 

The Scan Direction Indicator circling the Probe Direction Controls will 
alert you to organic material in your probe's immediate area. The Indi¬ 
cator will highlight in the direction where you should turn to scan the 
material. To scan for DNA, maneuver your probe so that the highlight is 
on the to p of th e circ I e (th i s m ea n s the sa m p I e i s directly in front of yo u}. 



iUH DaiCTOMlhlHCATC*. 


Once you are facing the direction of the sample, use Button A and the 
location of the material will blink on your video monitor (if the default 
Pre-Scan mode is ON). First move the robotic arm to the circular cross 
hairs on the screen. When the cross hairs blink, you may hit Button A if 
you wish to acquire the sample. The sample will then be stored in the 
probe's data bank. (Only three DNA samples can be stored at a time, If 
you want to remove a sample, hit the START Button to access the 
probe's computer and select the DNA BANK option to remove the 
sample.)

Staying Alive 

You must constantly avoid the Defender to stay alive while collecting 
the clues you need to advance to the next phase. Remember that you 
only have three probes to work with, so do your best to avoid getting 
killed. 

There are three map displays you need to use to navigate through the 
ship and keep track of the Defender. [Use Button C to switch between 
the three maps,) 

You can also temporarily confuse the Defender by jamming it. When 
the Defender is dose to your probe, the circle around your Direction 
Controls will flash yelfow. If you are in immediate danger, this circle will 
flash red. You can then use Button® to jam and disorient the Defender. 
(Jamming does deplete your probe's energy which could then result in 
probe failure.) NOTE: Jamming is more effective when you move after 
you jam. 

Phase 2: Locating Video Clues 

Once you get the three DNA samples you need, your probe's power will 
be restored and you must then find the video messages left by the 
crew. You need to Find at least f wo distinct types of messages. One will 
show a way to eliminate the Defender, and the other will show you a 
way to stop the ship. These messages are located on various computer 
data ports in rooms throughout the ship. 


fi 


Dwx ftw CttifOii 

Accessing Data Ports 

When you are at a location that has a video message in the data port, 
you will see "Message in Data Port" on your screen. Use your probe's 
arm (Britton A) to hook up to the data port, After the message is played 
once, the key parts of the information will be recorded as notes in your 
computer database. The clue can be called up by hitting the START 
Sutton and choosing NOTES,

IRON HELIX 
















Phase 3: Eliminating the Defender 

Once you have found the two video clues necessary to complete the 
game, you must use the one that explains how to disable or destroy the 
Defender robot first. NOTE: You may find and use more than one of 
each clue (in case the Defender re-launches). 

Using Access Codes 

Some of the dues will explain how to defeat the Defender. Listen care¬ 
fully to the video, goto the location indicated in the due, and then use 
the ship's computers to execute the access code that will stop the ro¬ 
bot, You can access the computers by linking with the data port speci¬ 
fied in the clue. 

Phase 4: Destroying the Ship 

Once the Defender is out of the way, you have about five minutes to 
input the access code to stop the ship. If you wait too long, another 
Defender will be launched. Move your probe to the location given on 
the video message and hook up with the data port there. After you 
enter the access code, congratulations! You J re victorious and the uni¬ 
verse Is safe agai n. Try ag a i n on a h ig her level where t he Defender gets 
nastier and the dues are harder to find.

The Iron Helix screen takes the form of a remote interface. You are 
controlling the probe from on board the Indiana using a remote control 
device. Following is a description of each function or display on this 
device. 

Video Feedback Screen 

This shows a view as seen from your probe. As you move about, this 
screen will display rooms and corridors, it also is used to display PNA 
samples when they are scanned. 

Probe Direction Controls 

When these arrows glow green, it means that your probe can move in 
that direction. (Use the O-Pad for direction control.) If the up arrow is 
red, there is a door in front of your probe that can be opened by press¬ 
ing UP on the D-Pad.

Scan Direction Indicator/ 

Threat Warning Light 

Around the Probe Direction Controls is a circular LED that serves a dual 
pu rpose, If on e of t he four com pass poin ts on t his drc ie is highlig hted r it 
means that there's an organic sample in that direction, (Turn to the 
appropriate direction and use Button A to scan for the sample,) 

The ci rc Ie also d o u bl es a s a Th re at Wa rn i ng Light, If th e circl e is I it g ree n, 
the Defender robot is within a safe distance, if the circle turns yellow, 
the Defender is nearby and within jamming range. And, if the circle 
turns red, the Defender is almost on top of you. 

Power Level Indicator 

This green bar shows how much power your probe has remaining. 
Every time you scan for DM A or use the jamming device, the power levei 
drops. If you run out of power, you can no longer jam; your probe will 
eventually shut down and be destroyed. 

Map Display Screen 

This screen displays one of three maps showing different decks of the 
ship, (Use Button C to switch between maps,) The first map shows the 
location of your probe (indicated by a triangle). The second map tracks 
the location of the Defender (indicated by a square). The third map 
shows a side view of all the levels of the ship and both the probe and 
the Defender,

Hints and Tips 

If you're having t rouble fig wring out what to do, how to stay alive, how 
to win the game or If you just want some general dues and hints r read 
this section,. 

WARNING! Reading this portion of the manual will greatly reduce the 
challenge of figuring out the game for yourself and could reduce your 
playing time. 

For additional help, you can call our Hint-line at 1 -900-773-HINT {$.95 
per m j n ute). If you're under 18, don't forget to ask yo ur pa rents before 
you call The Hint-line requires a Touch-Tone telephone and is only 
available in the U.S. 

Skill Levels 

* Skill Levels above Level 1 are more challenging. Not only is the 
Defender faster, it is also smarter. Every time you open a door or 
plug into a data port, the Defender will move towards that loca¬ 
tion , (You ca n use thi s as a way to lure t he Defender to its death or 
to lure it away from areas you wish to explore.} 

DNA 

* There are three levels of crew DNA, High-ranking crew DNA will 
allow you to access the video messages and computers. These are 
the Commander (WiIJiam Parrish), Lieutenant Commander 
(Catherine Ingram}, Chief Engineer (Joseph Geist) and the Weap¬ 
ons Specialist {Robert Benedetti).

IRON HELIX 





















* The Medical Officer (Jacob Blatman) and the Security Officer 
(Tatyana Semenovsky) are crew members who had access to most 
of the ship, but not to the codes for the weapons or ship controls. 
Their ON A will act as skeleton keys, allowing you to travel freely 
throughout most of the rooms where you r ll find the higher level 
DNA. 

Other crew members' DNA will provide access to some rooms, 
depending on that crew member's function and rank. Non-human 
DNA will not help you, 

* In Level 2 and Level 3, high-ranking DNA will always be found in 
rooms, never in hallways or common areas. The higher the level, 
the fewer the number of DNA clues and video messages. 

Rooms 

* Rooms you may have thought were inaccessible may not actually 
be locked at all times. There may be important information con¬ 
tained within. 

Movement 

* Use ladder chutes to move undetected between floors. But be 
careful! The Defender moves quickly in ladder chutes, but does not 
use elevators, 

* There Es a "secret" dead-end ladder chute that the Defender won't 
use. You can hide in it undetected,
