LYNX KUNG FOOD
Revenge of the Leftovers!
Your kitchen is usually a safe, warm place. Not any more. The top
secret chemical you stored in your fieezer became active when the
door was left open. Now the contents of your freezer have come to
life, and the effects of this chemical have spread throughout the
kitchen. Even you have been transformed. Reduced to a little green
man, you must boldly go to your freezer and destroy such transformed
tidbits as ice demons and killer kung fu carrots. If you fail, your
fearsome food will conquer the world.

Playing the Game
Kung Food is an action adventure game. You must fight your way through
your freezer, refrigerator, and other parts of your kitchen, destroying
mutant food as you go. Ultimately, you must get to the lawn sprinkler
outside. There you can wash off the contaminants and become a human again.
When the game begins, you see your kitchen. The freezer is highlighted
Press A or B. The screen shows our hero, the food fighter, inside
the freezer. Screen 3 also shows the time remaining, the energy bar,
and the number of your remaining lives.
At the top right of the screen there is a clock. This clock shows
the amount of time you have to complete the current level. If you
fail to complete the level, the world is doomed. If you make it,
you will immediately move on to the next challenge.
The energy bar on the right edge of the screen is very important.
If you run out of energy, your food will eat you.
The hearts in the lower right comer of the screen indicate the number
of lives remaining. You start the game with three extra lives. When
these are gone, you lose (unless you can find more).
Before beginning your quest for safe snacks, take a few seconds to
practice the game controls. You will need to master the controls
quickly if you want to survive.
Jab Quickly press and release the A button.
Punch Hold down the A button.
Kick right or left Press A while pressing the joypad right or left.
Rapid Low Kick Press A while pressing the joypad down.
Jump Press B.
Jump kick Press B, then A.
When you are ready, get moving. Time is running out and your dinner
is running amok! You begin on the top shelf. You must drop to the
next shelf to meet your foes. Move to the bottom of the screen and
you will fall to the next shelf.
Immediately, an ice demon attacks (Screen 4). This is just the first
of the many mutants you must face. Beat him up until he explodes.
It's not pretty. but then again. watching a salad destroy the world
is no bouquet of roses!
Once you destroy your first enemy' move on to the next. As you forage
tht-ough your fi eezer, keep an eye out for Power Balls---they could
save your life. Most Power Balls are in plain sight, but some may
be hidden behind other objects (Screens 5 & 6).
There are four types of Power Balls:
Energy Up Raises your energy.
Extra Life Gives you an additional chance to succeed.
Power Punch Makes your fists more lethal than a raging rutabaga.
Invincibility Makes you food-proof for a limited time (Screen 7).
Run over a Power Ball to eat it. When eating Energy Up Balls, keep
in mind that your energy can only be as high as the top of the Energy
Bar. Eating extra energy will not help you before a fight, but you
might need to go back and replenish yourself after a killer tomato
spits a tew poison seeds at you (Screen 8).
Each level is divided into smaller segments. You cannot move from
one segment to the next until all mutants in your segment have been
defeated. When the segment is clear, the word "GO!"appears on the
right of the screen (Screen 9).
To win the game, you must complete each level within the allotted
time. If you succeed, the world will be safe again, although you
may never look at food in the same way again. On the other hand,
If you fail, you will never need to eat again. The world will be
oven un by savage spuds and pouncing peas.
Destroy everything that moves.
When you are in a low kick position with a column of angry vegetables
coming toward you, hold down the A button tor nonstop kicking action.
If you have time, walk behind cans and other objects. You never know
what you might find.
If an endless number of evil edibles starts coming out of a bag or
box, you can destroy the bag or box--if you can get to it. If you
don't, you will quickly be outnumbered.
Don't eat every Energy Up Ball when you come to it. It does no good
to eat excess energy before a fight when the fight will deplete your
energy. So if your energy is at full strength, leave the balls until
you need them. (But don't scroll them off the screen, or you will
lose them forever!)
After you pick up some points, they appear in the upper right corner
of the screen. Your total is also on the screen that appears when
you lose a lite. Points are awarded as follows:
All powerups 200
Ice man 300
Sausage man 200
