Dr. Kal Morrow, the world's foremost authority on biogenetic science,
has been kidnapped by the notorious terrorist group, CHIMERA.
The leader of CHIMERA, a confirmed sociopath named Karl Draxx,
has set out to conquer the world using mutant war machines of the
doctor's own creation.
But Draxx is unaware that moments after the kidnapping, Morrow’s
youngest son, Saul, returned from conducting oceanographic research
at sea to find his father’s lab in ruins — and the entire incident captured
on security videotape. At that moment Saul swore to do everything in
his power to avenge his father's abduction and bring down Draxx once
and for all.
But Saul knew he couldn’t take on the bloodthirsty CHIMERAN
Fortunately, Draxx’s army failed to find Murrow's secret blueprint
for the perfect war machine —Project Wolfchild—a half-man, half¬
beast warrior possessing enormous strength, incredible psychic
powers, and an immunity to all levels of pain.
Saul had no other choice. In order to single-handedly crush his
father’s captors he had to activate Project Wolfchild.
Taking his life into his own hands, Saul entered the transmutation
booth a frightened young man . . . and emerged a lycanthropic warrior
hell-bent on revenge.

current form. It is very important to understand how this indicator
Saul begins each game in his human form and the vitality bar will be
filled up to the maximimum.
You can fill up the vitality bar beyond this limit by collecting vitality
bonuses. Saul will then transform into Wolfchild and remain in that
state until the vitality bar drops below the Wolfchild level as a result
of damage from enemy forces.
At that point Saul will transform back into his human form until
sufficient vitality bonuses can be collected to transform him back into
Wolfchild. Should Saul suffer enough hits to empty the bar, you’ll
lose a life.
Use this selection to confirm all your options settings and
return to the Main Game Menu.
The maximum length of the bar may be extended throughout the

portion of the vitality bar and allow Saul to take more hits as

6. Smart Bombs
This indicates the number of smart bombs Saul is currently carrying.
Smart bombs are collected as bonuses and come in limited supply.
When Saul throws a smart bomb at the ground, it will shatter,
triggering a massive burst of arsenal energy equal to 10 hits on every
enemy that happens to be on the screen at the time the bomb is
activated. You can add Smart Bombs to your arsenal by picking these
The following weapons can be used by Wolfchild by picking up the
icons shown. Each time you collect one, you get 30 shots added to
your total — up to 99 maximum.
Each time Saul transforms into
Wolfchild he is given an unlimited
supply of single fireblasts. Even when
all other weapons run out, he will still be
able to use the single fireblast.
This weapon comes in limited supply, has
a powerful single-shot capability, and
allows Wolfchild to fire at a faster pace.
This weapon follows a curving path
when fired, and proves ideal for wasting
enemies that try to hide below Wolfchild.
The flamer travels horizontally, inflicting
multiple wounds on anything it touches.
The flamer can only be stopped by
contact with solid landscape. The flamer
will destroy any breakable piece of
scenery it comes in contact with.
These are Wolfchild’s homing missiles.
They pursue the enemy until they
strike, or will blast into anything in
their path. If an enemy is blasted
before the Homer gets to him, it will
find a new enemy target to destroy.
This weapon swings around Saul’s body
like a boomerang and takes a double hit
on anything it collides with.
Bonuses and collectibles appear throughout the game behind
breakable scenery or in hidden bonus areas. Bonuses and collectibles
can also be invisible and require a hit from Saul’s fist or Wolfchild’s
psychic weapons to make them appear.
These items will appear for only a short time so it is important to
collect them before they disappear.

bonus he collected before he lost a life. In order to prevent being-

these bonuses whenever you can.

SAY YOUR PRAYERS IN
THE LOST TEMPLE
Once a thriving mecca of worship for
the filthy rich, the realm of the ancient
temple is now a creepy crawly
arthropod colony. Now, only beetle
infestations, falling larvae, fire-spitting
millipedes and giant cockroaches
dominate this cryptic landscape.
This place is sure to make your skin
crawl. Dive into the Inner Sanctum
and get ready for more scaly
arthropods. Trade firepower with
some of Draxx’s most disgusting
experiments including saw-like
cocoons and bolt-spitting arthropods.

swaying slash orbs.
