The Fantasy Zone Continues

It's been ten years since Opa-Opa returned to his homeland and now he's back. But it's not the same place he left behind.

A group of Blackhearts have joined forces to take over today's Fantasy Zone and Opa-Opa must defend the city gates once again and save his crazy kaleidoscope of creatures from the brink of disaster.

You'll have several interconnected warp gates to enter before you can reach and destroy the Blackhearts. So plan for a long and difficult battle of wits and strength. And remember, "look but don't touch," these critters are dangerous.

How to Use Controls

Before you begin playing, orient yourself with the movements and functions each button prompts.

Individual Functions:

Each button on the Control Pad prompts its own critical moves.

Your Directional Button (D-Button):

Button 1:

Button 2:

Directional Button Functions:

Depending on which directions you want to move towards, press your D-button in one of the eight directional points for Opa-Opa to follow.

When you're ready to visit the Shop, use your D-Button once inside this screen to move across the items until you've made your selection. Then, use Button 1 or 2 to execute your decision.

When you're visiting Parts, use your D-Button to rotate the items until you've made your selection. Then, press Button 1 or 2 to exit. Your part will be awarded to you automatically.

Button 1 and Button 2:

Shooting with Button 1 and bombing with Button 2 is self-explanatory. By pressing the buttons, the action will occur. Rapid fire, however, will only effect shooting. So, press and hold Button 1 to repeatedly fire bullets.

Use Button 1 or 2 to select items from the Shop screen. Use Button 1 or 2 to exit from the Parts screen.

Take Control

Before you begin your journey, the following will guide you through the game rules and regulations.

Life Symbols:

Opa-Opa starts each game with three lives which are illustrated by two Opa-Opa ships in the upper left corner of the screen and by the Opa-Opa ship currently activated in game play.

These ships will remind you of Opa-Opa's life status and symbolize your chances for winning.

Power Meter:

Located in the center upper screen is Opa-Opa's Power Meter. This indicates how strong Opa-Opa is and measures the amount of damage he receives from enemy fire.

Progress of game:

There are a total of eight rounds to beat before you've won the game. You will be advanced to the end of each round after you've passed through a series of scenes. Each round is composed of a number of scenes. However, the finale of each round is always the same:

(4) BOW BOW5

Warp Gates:

The individual rounds and scenes are connected by Warp Gates which Opa-Opa must pass through. The gates differ from scene to scene and round to round. Each require different conditions for passage.

Now Make Your Move

It is impossible to defend Fantasy Zone with Opa-Opa's physical ability alone. You'll need to improve your skills with various equipment and weapons. And since your enemy will become increasingly powerful, it's wise to save up for big buys later.

Here's where and how to get money and equipment.

Currency and Gold Coins:

The enemy has stashed away hordes of riches in secret hiding places which will serve you well when you find it. It is part of your mission to win these monies.

In the top portion of the screen is a value gauge which will illustrate in dollars how much money you've collected.


If you're ready to go shopping, first enter the Shop cloud on the screen and you'll find yourself inside.

You can move the hand symbol up, down, right and left by pressing the D-Button in those directions. Position the hand symbol next to the item of your choice and then press Button 1 or 2 to make your selection.


When you enter the Parts selection screen you can only use your D-Button to select items. Parts are separated into three groups:

You can buy as many parts as possible, but you're only allowed to buy one part pertaining to one function during a single visit. For example:

Destroy Blackhearts:

For every Blackheart, there's a specific destruction mode. And no matter how many times you're able to hit any one of them, they will not be defeated unless you make contact with their individual weakness.

Know The Score:

Scoring is based on the points you earn when you destroy an enemy base, creature or Blackheart.

Now to destroy the enemies you must keep in mind the two categories. Some enemies are groups and some are individuals. To earn points and win their coins or currency you need to destroy all of them, whether it’s one body or ten.

Enemies like a base are capable of awarding a warp gate or money. It just depends when you destroy them what you'll earn.

The values for enemies are as follows:

100 points
Enemy Base
1,000 points
10,000 points

The monies they drop are worth:

Big Coins
200 dollars
500 dollars
Small Coins
50 dollars

Hidden Shops

Hidden Shops are available to let you buy extra special parts and items to make winning possible.

They are located in rounds 3, 5 and 6. And here's how to discover them:
