              1. About this FAQ/walkthrough

Hello, reader! I'm MonsterChild666 and this is my 1st attempt to
write FAQ/walkthrough.

Do you remember Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg movie:
Back to the Future? It was the Great movie and you can even see
a special effects, if you watch the movie in every detail.
I must admit that I am the biggest devoted fan of this series
of movies and games (I mean on these episodes).

I wrote this guide to be shortest because I don't want to spoil
you for guides. Read other guides if you want to beat the game
100 % or read this to beat the game less than 4 hours.

                    2. About the Game

Marty McFly and Doc Brown return in a completely new
Back to the Future adventure.

Six months after the events of the third film, the DeLorean Time
Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley — driverless! Marty must
go back in time and get aid from a resistant teenage Emmett Brown, or
else the space time continuum will forever be unraveled!
