EPILEPSY WARNING 



READ BEFORE USING YOUR SEGA VIDEO GAME SYSTEM 

A very small percentage of individuals may experience epileptic 
seizures when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights. 
Exposure to certain patterns or backgrounds on a television screen or 
while playing video games may induce an epileptic seizure in these 
individuals. Certain conditions may induce undetected epileptic 
symptoms even in persons who have no history of prior seizures or 
epilepsy. If you, or anyone in your family, has an epileptic condition, 
consult your physician prior to playing. If you experience any of the 
following symptoms while playing a video game — dizziness, altered 
vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of awareness, disorientation, any 
involuntary movement or convulsions — IMMEDIATELY discontinue 
use and consult your physician before resuming play.

It is the future, where time travel is just 
being perfected. On the eve of its 
unveiling, a new time machine is the talk 
of the world. 

Joseph Harper’s "Pathforger” is about to 
be showcased live on world-wide 
television. From his lab. Harper prepares 
to send his head technician, 'Time Gal," into the time machine to 
explore the past. 

Time Gal enters the Pathforger, but before she can get comfortable 
a man named Luda suddenly appears from behind the control 
panel. Luda grabs Time Gal and sends her sprawling out the front 
of the Pathforger. 

“I'm going to rule forever, in any and every era the world has ever 
known!" Luda proclaims. In an instant, the evil Luda and the 
Pathforger are gone. 

"What do we do now Dr. Harper?" Time Gal cries. 

“Uh, I thought this might happen. Hurry... press that button 
over there!” 

A part of the lab wall opens and another time machine rolls out into 
the lab. The words "Pathforger II” are clearly visible on the front. 

"Go get that thief and bring back my stolen Pathforger!" Harper shouts. 

"I’m off! I’ll do my best to track him down and protect the world’s 
history. I hope I can catch him since he has a bit of a lead...’’ 

"Do what you can. We’re all counting on you Time Gal!"

REVVING UP THE PATHFORGERII 


THE PATHFORGER VIDEO CAMERA 



After placins the “Time Gal" CD in the Sega CD tray, press play on 
the title screen to start the game. After the design team logo appears, 
the game will automatically start an introduction sequence which 
shows Time Gal chasing Luda through many time periods. You may 
interrupt this animation at any point by pressing the Start button to 
bring up the game’s title screen. Rev up the Pathforger II before Luda 
gets away for good! 


From the “Time Gal” title screen you can select the type of game 
you want to play. Go to the Options mode and make adjustments 
if you like. 


Lives: You can have up to 4 lives. Make your travels through 

time more difficult by giving yourself fewer lives. 


Difficulty: 


Effects: 


Adjust the level of play to 
easy, normal or hard. There 
are 2 continues given. The 
easier the game you play, 
the more time you have 
to react. 

There are 6 computer¬ 
generated sound effects 
used in “Time Gal" which 
you can listen to here. 



Visual Mode: To enter and use the 

"Password Mode” please 
refer to page 14. 



This Sega CD game is presented through the Pathforger time 
machine’s video camera. Wherever Time Gal appears in time, the 
camera zooms in and shows you the action. 

You must help Time Gal jump or move to avoid any of the obstacles 
Luda has arranged for her to run into during her chase through time. 
Here’s what you see through the Pathforger video camera: 


O Reaction Jewels:

The video camera has reaction jewels in 
four directions: up, down, left or right. 

This is what the camera shows you

Your current score is displayed. 

This tells you which time period you are 
currently in. 

Watch here for the Time Gal’s reaction 
to your move.

WHICH WAY DO I GO? 

Wherever Ti me Ga I needs to go, the area I ' t 1 

will flash yellow. Tones will also ring J| 

letting you know when an action is 1 

required. If you don’t move Time Gal in 1 

that direction quickly enough, Time Gal 
will suffer one game life and a special 

error sequence will appear. You'll know you made the correct choice 
when the picture of Time Gal in the lower right of the screen remains 
smiling. Also, tones will ring to let you know whether your choice was 
right or wrong. 

tones ring and the yellow area flashes. 

The reaction time is greatly reduced in the Normal and Hard modes. 
You’ll need to anticipate the move in the Hard Mode, so be quick on 
your fingers to be successful. 


SCORING 

The scoring is based upon how well you complete each stage. If you 
complete a stage without missing a single reaction, your score will be 
higher than if you complete a stage after missing a reaction. Point 
totals are also determined by which difficulty level you are playing. 

You also get points for each reaction you complete successfully. 

Enter your name when you finish your game and compare your score 
with those of the designers. Top scores entered do not remain when 
the Sega CD is turned off. 







Time Gal has a special ability granted to her through the Pathforger. At 
certain points in a time period, she may stop time for a few seconds. 
When she says "Time Stop," time will then freeze. At this point, Time 
Gal has many options and needs your expertise to make the right 
decision. A menu will appear with three choices of how to get Time 
Gal out of a sticky situation. Make the right choice and Time Gal will 
smile. Choose a wrong option, and she loses a game life. 



There are 16 time periods or stages Time Gal must travel though to 
capture Luda. The periods she travels to are arranged by era, but each 
year within that era comes up randomly. She will start in the B.C. era, 
then will move to the early A.D. through present time, and finally into 
the future where Luda awaits. 

When you start the game, the first stage that Time Gal travels to may or 
may not be the same as the next time you play. To add an extra 
challenge to the game, a stage may look the same as you remember it. 
However, it could be a reversed image of how it appeared before. 

Be aware that your movements also could be backwards. 


SOME TIME PERIODS TIME GAL VISITS: 


65,000,000 B.C. Trouble just seems to 

follow Time Gal, like 
the Triceratops that 
chases her. Keep 
moving and eventually 
you’ll be rewarded 
with something cool. 
Watch out! It’s not 
easy to outswim the 
"slow" turtle.

Falling rocks are easy 
to jump to, but watch 
it when you start 
getting close to the 
river. Don’t let Time 
Gal go over the 
waterfall! Once off the 
water, just fall without 
the net and Time Gal 
will be safe. 


Those Romans get a 
kick out of big burly 
men battling it out in 
a forum in front of 
frenzied fans. Time 
Gal definately feels 
out of place and with 
some quick move¬ 
ments she’ll begone. 
Good thing the 
Pathforger came 
equipped with a 
laser gun!

What would a good 
vacation through time 
be without a ride in a 
mine car? Time Gal 
finds out in a hurry 
that the mine car is 
her way to escape. 
Where’s the driver of 
the other car? Be 
alert because that 
track is not very 
sturdy in some parts. 

Time Gal likes to sail, 
but on a Spanish 
galleon with pirates 
she doesn't exactly 
jump for joy. She 
jumps to get out of 
the way! Look out for 
that cannonball or 
she may end up 
walking a fiery plank. 

Nothing like a little 
futuristic biking with 
some really level¬ 
headed dudes. Hop 
on a space bike and 
zoom away from 
these hoodlums. 
Dodge that sword 
and don't forget 
to duck! 



















PASSWORDS/VISUAL MODE 


HARD MODE TIPS 



The normal and hard modes of Time Gal 
add an extra bonus to the same play. 
After you complete a stase in these 
modes, your score is totaled and then 
a password appears. There are 16 
passwords in the entire game, one 
for each stage.

Once the game is completed, you may 
use this password feature until you turn 
off the system. If you turn off your Sega 
CD system, you'll have to complete the 
levels again in order the use the pass¬ 
words. The passwords allow you to 
enter the Visual Mode from the game’s 
Title Screen. Enter the password and 
you will be presented with a menu to 
view the entire stage uninterrupted or 
watch the results of a wrong move. 

As an additional reward, learn all 16 
passwords and watch the entire game.

The Hard Mode requires a quicker reaction time and fewer clues, so 

here are some tips on how to be more successful. 

1) The reaction jewels do not flash so 
there is no need to watch them. Pay 
close attention to the game itself 
because the area you need to jump 
to will flash yellow. Some areas are 
small and may not be completely 
in one of the four directions. Use 
your best judgement. 

2) When Time Gal needs to use her weapon, her hand or the 
weapon holster will flash yellow. Pay attention to this because 
you may miss it. 

3) After you accumulate your first 
100,000 points in any of the 3 
difficulty levels, you gain an extra life. 

Subsequent lives will be added at 
every 200,000 points in the Hard 
Mode. Build up your lives to make 
the game last longer.

Gal doesn’t succeed, Luda will 
be laughing hysterically.
