ROUND 8 - SYNDICATE HEADQUARTERS

In this round everything will get thrown at you. As well as much tougher enemies every boss returns stronger than before and that’s all before reaching the final boss Mr X!

Running tables are an annoying adversary on this stage though they do very little damage. Some have power-ups underneath.

Also in Round 8 you can not call upon the special attack. The techniques for defeating bosses apply to these.

Boss 1: Guy with Boomerang
Boss 2: Freddy Kruger
Boss 3: Wrestler
Boss 4: Fat Burner
Boss 5: Blaze’s

Mr X

Before the final showdown with Mr X you have to answer a question. This scenario differs between single player and 2-Player modes. Your answer is important. Read on.

Mr X’s Choice - 1 Player (Single player)

Mr X “Well you found your way here. Would you consider being my right-hand man?”

Selecting “yes”

Mr X “You show allot of potential. Here’s your reward” - You will fall through a trap door back to round 6.

Selecting “no”

Mr X “You really want to die don’t you...I’ll be happy to oblige!” - the final fight is on and results in the good ending.

Mr X’s Choice - 2-Players

Mr X “Well you found your way here. Would you consider being my right-hand man?”

(Player 1) “yes” + “yes” (Player 2)
Mr X “You show allot of potential. Here’s your reward” - You will fall through a trap door back to Round 6.

(Player 1) “No” + “No” (Player 2)
Mr X “You really want to die don’t you...I’ll be happy to oblige!” - the final fight is on and results in the good ending should you be successful.

(Player 1) “Yes” + “No” (Player 2)
Mr X “After working as a team for so long, you part company. Now, a fight to the death! You have to battle your partner until one of you dies.

(The winner)
Mr X “You’re no ordinary man. It would be a waste to kill you. Why don’t you join my organisation?”

selecting Yes
Mr X “You show allot of potential. Here’s your reward” - You will fall through a trap door back to Round 6

Selecting “no”
Mr X “You’re an evil man. I would never have expected this from you. Die traitor! You really want to die don’t you...I’ll be happy to oblige!”

The final fight with Mr X is on but you will get the bad ending to the game and the shame of killing your partner.

Fighting Mr X

Timing and practice will make this final scrap much easier. In normal mode he is not that difficult to defeat. To assist you there is a pipe top-centre of the screen though you may not be able to make much use of it from being knocked to the ground.

He attacks by making sudden strides across the entire width of the screen ramming his gun into your head. He has 2 tougher thugs with him at all times to help complicate matters. They tend to be landing punches on you whenever you get to hit Mr x.

Before coming at you himself he sends 4 thugs against you. Easily defeated. Immediately after walk up to where he is sitting. He takes position here spraying the room with bullets but if you are standing here he will stand up and you can grab him. Do as much damage as you can with knees and backdrop. He will run at you immediately after so be ready with a flying kick.

He will charge across the screen and then off only to come back on and ram you. You can land a punch better when he is backing away from a charge at you.

When he stands still and fires his gun use flying kicks to get closer as they deflect any bullets. Beware when you get close he will ram you with his gun so begin attacking as soon as you land. Try to land near enough, just below so you can quickly grab and do damage without taking a bullet.

As soon as you knock him to the floor he will return to his feet and ram you. Stand by with a flying kick. At times he will run off the screen. He will quickly rush back on (similar to boss in Round 3) and ram you with his gun. Use flying kicks to knock him back. If you can time this right you can do this several times.

Again, throw the thugs in his direction when ever possible to interrupt his attack so you can get closer and attack.

At the end of Round 8 you receive an extra bonus for any lives remaining.
