Bruce Lee Manual

BRUCE LEE(TM)


DATASOFT(R)


STRATEGY

An opulent, mysterious, and perilous fortress is the setting as Bruce Lee
seeks to claim infinite wealth and the secret of immortality from the
wizard who dwells within.

You begin your search for the wizard at the entrance to his fortress.
This chamber, and each chamber here, is sealed off from the other rooms.
The only way to get from one room to the adjoining room is to jump up and
take the lanterns which hang from the ceiling. When you get all the
lanterns (or at least certain lanterns) for that room, the door opens.
(Watch the edges of your screen so that you'll see when your exit is
possible.) Hint: You must get all of the lanterns in the first three
rooms in order to proceed. Then go to the middle room and look for the
opening through which you can exit.

Throughout your search for the wizard, you are attacked by the ninja
brandishing their BOKKEN sticks. Even more dangerous is the Yamo, who
runs after you and delivers crushing kicks. Duck and run away to foil
their attempts to harm you, then come back kicking and chopping - the
Yamo can survive only three blows and the ninja can survive only two.
Take as many lanterns and cover as much ground as you can before these
foes reappear.

To get around each room, you can climb vines (up, down, or sideways),
ride on waves of particles which change direction at random, leap from
ledge to ledge, and jump down from a ledge without injury.

Hazards and traps await you in rooms close to the wizard's chamber. You
must avoid electrical charges passing through gaps between ledges, PAN
lights streaming across the floor, and exploding T'SUNG-LIN (bushes)
appearing from nowhere.

When you finally reach the wizard, keep away from the fire balls
streaming from his eyes. Press the button which destroys the wizard - and
his fortunes are yours! Enjoy them, because your next foray into the
fortress will be more difficult!
