Nectaris / Military Madness FAQ  (1989 PC-Engine / TurboGrafx-16)

  instruction manual scans:


The 14-page Japanese game manual and the no-frills (sound familiar?) 14-page North American manual have been scanned in their entirety and are available for your viewing pleasure.  There's even an advertisement for the first two CD-ROM games ever released for a home console: No-Ri-Ko & Fighting Street (a.k.a. Street Fighter).  It is interesting to compare the two manuals: the overall design and attention-to-detail in the Japanese manual is impressive, while the U.S. manual is ... utilitarian, to say the least.  Perhaps the best way to illustrate this point is to compare the weapon guides provided in each manual.  The Japanese manual features original artwork (albeit "cutesy" in style) and attractive layout ( page 1  page 2 ) in stark contrast to the crammed, text-only weapon guide found in the U.S. manual ( page 3 ). Enjoy!
