The dangerous journey of the great wise prophet Michael Chen begins in the sky somewhere deep in the heart of China. Help him find the path to enlightenment in this high-flying adventure from Sega.
IMPORTANT: Always make sure that the Power Base is turned OFF when inserting or removing your Mega Cartridge.
Back when the Earth was young, there was a mysterious hermit named Michael Chen who rode the wind on a cloudlike chariot. He had meditated deep in the mountainous regions of central China for many years, and had grown powerful with the knowledge of the ancients. With luck and a little more study, he hoped to gain the title of "Cloud Master," which would make him a powerful mystic indeed.
But dark forces conspired against the young hermit, and attacked him one after the other, trying to interfere with his all-important studies. Help Michael Chen wipe out these evil powers and assist him in becoming a Cloud Master!
At the title screen, choose one or two players. As the screen scrolls slowly to the left, you control Michael Chen, who rides on his cloud and shoots at oncoming enemies. The game is divided into five rounds. At the end of each round, a boss creature must be defeated in order to move on to the next round. Middle bosses also occupy each round. These must be defeated in order to obtain special power-up weapons. When the boss at the end of Round 5 is defeated, the game returns to Round 1, but with heightened action.
Each player starts with four lives. You lose a life whenever you touch or are shot at by an enemy, or if you get squeezed to the edge of the screen by a rock. You gain a new life when you reach 30,000 points, and every 200,000 points
When the game ends, you have the option of continuing at the point in the round you last occupied. You can use the Continue feature up to three (3) times.
At first, you'll have to destroy the enemy using a normal shot. Destroy the middle bosses in order to enter the power-up chamber. You see the chamber as a door with a (?) on it. Maneuver Michael Chen over the door and push the D-Button up. Once inside, you have your choice of various power-up weapons. Select the weapon you want with the D-Button and press Button 1 to obtain it. Once back outside, press Button 2 to activate the power-up weapon.
Once you've obtained a power-up weapon, it stays in effect as long as you don't lose a life. If you make it to the next power-up chamber, even more powerful weapons will be at your disposal. In addition, if you choose the same type of weapon twice in a row, its power will be increased.
You don't have to enter the power-up chamber to increase Michael Chen's abilities. Sometimes, when you knock down a formation of Gyoza (Chinese dumplings) or Shumai (Chinese shrimp dumplings), a jar containing a power-up item will appear. When Michael Chen touches the jar, his power goes up. There are five kinds of power-up jars:
When taken, Michael Chen's power goes up by two (2) steps.
Michael Chen's number of lives increase by one.
