===============================================================================

Welcome to 'Akira' for the NES, released by Taito in 1988. It was only released
in Japan.

The guide uses Shift-JIS to display Japanese characters in .txt form. If you
cannot see them automatically and just see some garbled font, set your browser
encoding or file viewer manually.

This game is a text adventure. There is a lot of reading to be done. The game
is now available in English thanks to a group of fan translators. You will have
to find out more on your own, I merely supply the guide through the game. If
you are playing the Japanese version then you can use the Japanese walkthrough,
else use the English walkthrough.

Suggestions, comments or errors - tell me about it. Enjoy!

===============================================================================

Akira is a graphic adventure game based on the 1989 animated movie of Katsuhiro
Otomo's epic Manga. The game has the player in the role of Kaneda. Events begin
with Kaneda and his motorcycle gang in police custody after their friend Tetsuo
has been abducted by the military.
[WikiPedia]

At the main menu, choose START to begin a new game. Pick CONTINUE to input a
password and proceed where you left off before. You get this password when you
have died during the game.

The controls of the game are very easy, as only the two action buttons are
used:

A to select the command(s). Shows the menu if you hid it.
B to revert back to previous selection if available. Also removes the menu.
SELECT is only used for a short scene and it will be explained at the time.
Use the UP and DOWN directions for selecting commands. Some commands menus can
scroll up and down if there are more than four available options.

The display is also quite basic. The top part has the current location and
story pictures. The top right has a menu when you are able to perform an
action. By pressing B you can hide this menu, and return it with A. Usually
this menu is available when there is something to do, and not there if the
story is progressing, such as somebody talking or some picture sequences. All
talk and storyline goes on in the lower part of the screen.

Use the A Button to shoot while dodging with B. If one of them gets past you
then it will come back from the other side so use SELECT to turn around. If no
craft approaches you should turn around as they can ambush you and that is also
instant death. Luckily each drone only takes one hit and this is not too
difficult. After seven drones you have survived, but there is still one more...
かわす

Use the A button to shoot the soldiers. B moves the vehicle to the side. You
need to shoot one or two to advance the story. If one goes by it does not
matter, but if one catches you in the center you die. Thus, aim for the one in
the center to make this easy.
