GAMEPLAY The gameplay of NIGHTBREED-THE INTERACTIVE MOVIE closely follows the plotline of the film. There is a set order in which to perform acts/visit places - trial and error will help you reach the correct conclusion. Set out below is a series of instructions, designed to aid you play specific sections. How you achieve the correct objective, in the correct order is for you to find out! CAR MAP SECTION There are three main destinations in the map. They are: 1) The Asylum 2) The Police Station 3) Midian Town You move your car around the map by selecting a connecting junction or bend in the road. At various points in the map are petrol stations at which you can fill up and repair your car if you have any money. When you buy petrol any damage to your tyres or petrol tank will be repaired. When you come across a police road-block you have two choices:- 1) Turn Round 2) Ram The Road-Block If you turn round you must find an alternate route to your ultimate destination. If you ram the road-block you run the risk of being captured and having your car damaged. The more you ram through road blocks the more damage is inflicted on your car and this narrows your chances of successfully ramming future road blocks! You may also get hit in the petrol tank or tyres by stray bullets. NECROPOLIS GATES AT MIDIAN TOWN You have three options:- 1) Enter Graveyard 2) Look Around 3) Enter Midian Complex ESCAPE FROM PELOQUIN You may come across Peloquin, a Nightbreed. He is ferocious and hungry. You, to him, are meat! Your only chance of survival is to run out of the necropolis where he cannot follow. To do this you must press fire in time with each arm at its highest point in front of your chest. This will increase your running speed and hopefully you will be able to keep ahead of Peloquin. A meter at the top of the screen shows the distance between you. MASK ENCOUNTER The Mask is skilled in the art of knife throwing! In his coat he hides an assortment of knives that would put an abattoir to shame. To survive you must dodge the knives until his supply of blades has gone. MIDIAN UNDERGROUND COMPLEX Midian is an underground complex of tunnels and chasms. You must make your way to the heart of Midian to find Baphomet's chamber. At the top left hand corner the status panel displays the direction, run away and fight options. On the right hand side of the display will be shown any Breed you rescue. To move around Midian click on one of the four arrows. The view is from Boone's eye and Foward is always the direction that Boone is facing. When you move, you also face the new direction. to turn on the spot click on the rotate arrows Clockwise or Anticlockwise. You will come across various "Sons Of The Free" and Breed as you make your way into Midian. You may also enter a chasm, these are used by the Breed to either go deeper or higher into Midian. These are also a form of security as they are easy to go down but very hard to get back up. In the bowels of Midian are the Beserkers - wild, uncontrollable creatures locked away from contact with other Breed. The Beserkers must be released - but only when it is safe to do so! * HINT: It would be advisable to make a map of this section. SONS OF THE FREE When you see a "Son Of The Free" you must either fight or run away from him. To select, choose the run or fight icon next to the direction panel. If you choose to run away, you will run blindly back through Midian. To fight use the following controls:- RIGHT = Move Right LEFT = Move Left FIRE = Punch FIRE/RIGHT = Kick UP = Jump-kick LASER RIFLE If you notice a small red dot, the you know a "Son Of The Free" is aiming his laser rifle at you! If he is allowed a shot at your forehead you will die instantly! Therefore you must be on your toes and dodge the red dot to survive. FLYING MANTA RAY These crestures, with razor-sharp teeth, patrol the corridors of Midian cutting down any intruder in their path. You must duck or jump to avoid them but they dont give up easily! Use the following controls:- UP = Jump Up DOWN = Duck Down * HINT: Good eye-to-hand co-ordination is essential to survive a Manta-Ray attack. CHASMS These are essentially vertical tunnels with ledges at various points. To the Breed they are no problem as the Shapechangers can just transform to smoke and float up, and the more agile have memorised the positions of the ledges and leap from one to the other. But for you - a mere mortal - it is a bit harder! Once in the chasm you must reach the other end. GOING DOWN. This is the easy part, all you need to do is drop from ledge to ledge till you reach the bottom. GOING UP. You must jump up and either land on a ledge or grab the edge and pull yourself up onto it. You cant hang around because the ledges crumble or withdraw into the rock. Try not to colide with the walls too much as your body can only take a certain amount of battering! Use the following controls:- LEFT = Creep Left RIGHT = Creep Right DOWN = Duck FIRE/UP = Leap Up FIRE/UP/RIGHT = Leap Up To Right FIRE/DOWN/RIGHT = Leap Down To Right FIRE/DOWN/LEFT = Leap Down To Left FIRE/UP/LEFT = Leap Up To Left * HINT: If you are unsure where the next ledge is just jump straight up for a look. * HINT: You can bounce off walls to enable you to reach an otherwise inaccessible ledge.
