Megamania - Manual

DescriptionSubmit Description
Megamania is a frenetic shoot 'em up that pits the player against a variety of household objects (tires, dice, hamburgers, bow ties, and more) gone berzerk. These objects attack in different formations, many of which pass through the player's field of movement at the bottom of the screen. Most of these objects also drop bombs in an attempt to destroy the player's oversized cannon, making these stages even more difficult. Players can take advantage of Megamania's bonus system by allowing a cannon to be lost just before reaching 10,000 points (when an extra life is awarded), and then finishing off the remaining objects from the current wave. This allows more of the time remaining from that wave to be converted to points. Achieving 45,000 points qualifies you as an Activision Megamania. Achieving 999,999 points (or running out of cannons) ends the game. (Contributed by shadow460)
