About the Controller
While playing Lylatwars, we recommend you put your left thumb on the Control Stick and your right thumb on the A, B or C Buttons.
This game is compatible with the Rumble Pak accessory.

The Lylat system. This small group of planets enjoyed years of prosperity. The inhabitants lived in peace. That is, until Andross came into view.
Andross was born and raised on Corneria, fourth planet of the system, and grew to be a brilliant scientist.
Dr. Andross had been focusing all his time and energy researching bio-technology. But, since Corneria was a peaceful planet, this research went in vain. Over time, his mind became twisted and his morals became demented. Andross went mad.
One day, a weapon, secretly developed by Andross, was unleashed on the residents of Corneria. Andross had turned his back on his homeworld. Corneria's major cities were damaged. Luckily, Andross was captured by General Pepper, charged with treason and exiled to the planet Venom.
Five years later, reports from Corneria's observation station had confirmed disturbing activity from Venom. General Pepper sent three members of the Star Fox team, James McCloud, Pigma Dengar and Peppy Hare, to investigate.
When they arrived at Venom, Pigma betrayed his teammates and turned them over to his new master, Andross. Peppy barely managed to escape and returned to his homeworld to report McCloud's fate to his son, Fox.
Consumed with hatred, Andross declared war on the Lylat system. Slowly, Andross has taken control planet by planet. Now, Andross is advancing on Corneria.
General Pepper knows that Corneria's army alone cannot stop Andross. In his hour of need, he has turned to the new Star Fox team to save Corneria and free Lylat from Andross' evil clutches!

Fox McCloud - The young leader of the Star Fox team, Fox is always at the forefront of the team's attack. Because of his fantastic flying skills and quick decisiveness, he is an extremely respected leader.
Peppy Hare - Peppy is the senior member of the team, a good pilot with vast knowledge and a good friend. A long time friend of Fox's father, Peppy has watched Fox grow from a young pup to an experienced pilot.
Rob64 - Operating from the mothership Great Fox, ROB works closely with the Star Fox team offering support when necessary.
Arwing - The primary fighting machine of the Star Fox team. With the G-diffuser anti-force generator, the Arwing is able to perform many different tasks.
Slippy Toad - He's the most energetic and positive member of the team, although sometimes Slippy can go a little overboard. While he's not the greatest pilot, he compensates with his mechanical skills.
Falco Lombardi - A member of the avian race, Falco is a natural pilot. His quick temper and overconfidence make him the wildest member of the team. While he often gets into arguments with the other team members, he is loyal to the Cornerian cause.
Landmaster - The anti-aircraft Landmaster rotation tank is equipped with a laser cannon and two jets, which allow for temporary hovering.
Great Fox - The dreadnought-class flagship of the Star Fox team. With its large plasma engine, it can quickly travel between planets.

Main Game
In the main game, you are Fox McCloud, leader of Star Fox. Follow the instructions given to you by General Pepper and clear each area.
Map Screen - The fist objective is to free Corneria from Andross' army. The final objective is to defeat Andross at Venom. How you get to the final objective is up to you. Make sure you choose your path wisely.
For example, In Corneria...
If you play normally, most of the time you will fight the enemy boss, finish the level and proceed to Meteo.
However, if you satisfy certain conditions, you will fight a different boss, and you will proceed to Sector Y.
In some areas, your next destination will be branched out. The story and difficulty level will change depending on the route you take.
Here are the areas of the game: Corneria, Sector Y, Meteo, Aquas, Katina, Fortuna, Zoness, Solar, Sector X, Sector Z, Macbeth, Titania, Area 6, Bolse and Venom.
On the Map screen, the route time and colors of the route indicating difficulty level (blue = easy, yellow = medium, red = hard) will be displayed.
If you don't like the current route, press START and select 'Retry Course'. You'll replay the last course you just completed, but it'll cost you one Arwing (if you try it during gameplay, you'll have to start that level over). Also, if you've selected a route with a higher difficulty, select 'Change Course' to change routes.
3D Scroll Mode and All-Range Mode - The one-player game splits up into two parts.
3D Scroll Mode - In the 3D scroll mode, you can move in all directions, but if you go too far in one direction, an arrow mark will appear on the screen preventing you from going any further.
On the way, there will be a check point indicating the halfway point. if you pass through it, your machine will be partially recovered. If you pass through it, and are defeated, you will start that level over at the check point (all damage will be recovered).
All-Range Mode - In the All-Range Mode, you'll be in a square-shaped area and you'll be able to fly anywhere you want. The Arwing will automatically U-Turn if it gets to the edge of the plying field.
Radar appears in the bottom right cornet of the screen. Objects on the field or the location of the boss will appear on the radar.
Yellow - Fox
Green - Slippy
Blue - Falco
Red - Peppy
Black - Enemy, Important Objects (if applicable)
Note - In some areas, both modes exist.
Screen Display
Shield Gauge - If your machine takes damage, your shield gauge will reduce gradually. When the gauge disappears completely, your machine will crash. Find shield rings to increase your shield gauge.
Remaining number of Arwings.
Boost Gauge - The indication of energy consumed when using the boost and brake. While using them, the color gradually changes to red. It will change back to blue if you stop using it. Until it returns to its original condition, you won't be able to use boost or brake.
Remaining number of Smart Bombs.
Aiming Cursor - The laser goes through the center of the two squares. To remove the cursor, pause the game and press the R Button.
Enemy Shield Gauge - When the enemy boss appears, this gauge will be displayed. When the boss takes damages, the gauge will reduce. If Slippy has left the battle, this gauge will not appear.
Shield Ring - Shield rings acquired appear here.
Arwing power up items - Some enemies that you shoot down will leave behind helpful items.
Laser - The single laser will change into the twin laser, and the twin will change to the hyper laser. The powered up laser can be carried over to the next area.
Smart Bomb - The number of smart bombs will increase by one.
Supply Ring - Shield gauge will recover slightly..
Middle Supply - Shield gauge will recover more.
Shield Ring - If you get three shield rings, you will increase the maximum value of your shield gauge. At the same time, the gauge will be recovered significantly. If you get another three, you will get a 1-up. You can take the rings you didn't use to the next stage.
Wing Repair - If your Arwing takes too much damage, your wings will be destroyed. Any powered-up lasers will be gone and your flying ability will be hindered. If you grab the Wing Repair, or if you finish the stage, the destroyed wings will automatically be fixed.
Container - Sometimes during the game, a yellow mark will appear at the top of the screen. This means that ROB4 is trying to contact you. Press C-Left to respond. Sometimes ROB64 will give you a container. Shoot the container to receive the helpful item inside.
Help your teammates when they're in trouble! - During the game, some of your teammates may be chased or attacked by enemies. If you don't help them, they'll end up leaving the battlefield. Help them by taking out the enemies.
Friends can be attacked even though it doesn't appear on the screen. Sometimes on the left and right side of the screen, the word 'Help' will appear in different colored arrows that correspond to the teammate. Make sure to help them out immediately.
Damage - Press START during the game. Here you will see the amount of damage each teammate has taken (if any). Members who have left the battle are indicated by the word 'Down' and an 'X' will be across their picture. Damaged members will be recovered when the stage is clear. The amount of damage recovered depends on how many enemy machines are shot down.
Teammates Leaving Battle - Teammates that have left the battle will return to Great Fox to have thier ship repaired. Because this takes time, they won't be able to join you in the next stage.
Special Power - The Members of the Star Fox team have different strengths. Because of this, it's a good idea to keep each member safe.
Peppy - Peppy can analyse enemy weakness and give Fox appropriate advice. It's always a good idea to have Peppy at your side.
Falco - With Falco, you're more likely to travel through routes with a higher difficulty level.
Slippy - Slippy's specialty is analysing the strength of bosses. He can also display their shield gauge on the screen. If Slippy's not around, you won't be able to tell how close you are to defeating a boss.
Total hits/One up - When you clear each stage, the number of certain enemies shot down and buildings destroyed will be displayed. This number will be totalled every time you clear a stage. When the number reaches 100, the number of remaining Arwing's will increase by one. The number can be increased depending on the type of enemy, the way it was defeated or the time it took to shoot down.
Ranking - When the game is over, your score will be saved to memory. The top ten scores will be saved. You can see these scores if you select 'Ranking' on the Menu screen.
If your score is in the top ten, you can register your name on the Name Entry screen.
Check the order of the names and scores on the Ranking screen.
To check the statistics of each score, press Up or Down on the Control Stick, then press the A Button.
The scores are listed in order of the highest number of hits. If the total number of hits are the same, whoever has more remaining Arwings will have the higher rank.
Advice to attack Andross
Boost and Brake - The boost (C-Left Button) is very effective when chasing a distant enemy or when you need to quickly move through a tight space.
If you use the brake (C-Down Button), you'll have an easier time passing through barrow complex areas.
When using the boost or brake, the meter in the upper right corner will change from blue to red. Once you stop using it, you'll have to wait for the meter to return to its original color to use it again.
Somersault/U-Turn - If you're being chased from behind, break away by doing a somersault (Press Down and C-Left) or a U-turn (Press Down and C-Down). It's very effective manoeuvre. U-turns only work in All-Range mode.
Rolling. Smart Bomb - When you're being attacked by a lot of enemies, use the Rolling technique to repel their bullets. You'll take less damage this way (Press Z or R twice).
Another thing you can do is to use the Smart Bomb. It's a great weapon to have, but you only have a limited number of them, so use them wisely.
Repairs - If the Arwing's wings become broken, ROB will provide a wing repair. Make sure to look for it.

VS Mode - On the Menu screen, select either 'Point Match', 'Battle Royal' or 'Time Trial'. Two to four players can compete (provided you have enough controllers).
Connecting the controller - The characters used depend on which controller socket is used.
If a controller is not being used, the screen not in use will display various camera angles of certain players.
Make sure the controllers are connected before you turn the power on.
Handicap - Some players may have better skills than others. To make the game more even, you can adjust the handicap level by pressing Left and Right on the Control Stick. There are three levels. As the number increases, the Shield Gauge meter will decrease significantly and you will not be able to take as hits.
Stage - There are three special stages in the Vs. mode. Two of these special stages are avaliable in each of the three Vs. mode games. You may select the stage you like. Select the desired stage with the Control Stick. In Vs. mode, if you go to the edge of the map, you will warp to the other side.
3 Game modes
Point Match - Players compete for the number of machines they shoot down. When a player shoots down the set number of machines, that's player is the winner (the number can be set from 1 to 5). If you shoot down a rival, you'll receive a Star.
Battle Royal - If a player loses his machine, he must leave the battle field. Whoever is left standing is the winner. One Arwing is given to each player.
Time Trial - Whoever takes out the most machines within the allotted time is the winner. If you get shot down, the number of enemies that you shoot down resets to zero. The time limit can be set from 1 to 5 minutes.
