Dal'X - Manual
You have to reconstitute a puzzle, which represent a young girl's face.
If you succeed in assembling the 9 pieces wich compose the puzzle, this one
will become a more decontracted view of the young girl. And more difficult
are the level, less the girl is dressed...
What you have to do:
There's 2 modes avalide in dal'X: 1 player and 2 players. With one
player option, you have to defeat traps and monsters in 15 levels of
increasing difficulty. Of course, you'll be able to subdue your erotic
friend at the end of every odd levels (1, 3, 5, ... 15). But you have
a limited time to finish your mission...
In 2 players mode, both plays in the same ground. Each one have to
finish the puzzle before the other, in order to see his girl undressing
to congratulate him. To win a match,you have to win 2 rounds, it means that
the match is composed of 2 rounds (if the same player win the 2 rounds)
or of 3 rounds, and in this case, the winner is the player who have won 2
Start the game:
To start playing, press fire button or Enter key when the title screen
appear. A new picture will appear showing the 2 players. To choice the
number of player, just press F1 (one player) or F2 (two players).
Recovering puzzle's pieces:
To win, you must find and bring back the 9 pieces composing the puzzle
and representing your erotic friend's face.
To pick up a piece, just pass on it. Warning: a player can carry only
one piece in the same time. In two players game, each one can just pick up
his own piece of puzzle (see the color: blue or red).
Put down your piece in your square (3 paving stones on 3) by moving on
the correct place for the currents piece you have (the piece is put down
automatically, as soon as you pass (and stay) in the correct place!), and
you can continue and search for other pieces.
Each level is composed of traps you have to avoid or to fight. The first
of those traps is the ground nature:
- Moving paving stone: as soon as the player have passed on it, it turn into
a deep crack. And the only sollution to pass it is having a "condom" bonus.
- Stairs, slides, walls: sometimes dangerous because they are one-way.
Senses is showed using arrows puted in closeness. When you start going here,
you can't stop the movement. However it is possible to stop temporarily your
progress on a stairs, by turning the joystick in the opposite of the
progression's sense (usefull when a monsters could disturb you!)
- Swamp: make you lose few time.
- Stake: make you lose more time.
- Switch: if you pass on a red OFF switch, it will turn green and will
make appear others paving stones... elsewhere, wich allow you to exit
a quite dangerous situation.
- Transporter: press Fire when you're on this kind of paving stone and you
will be imediatly transported in another place.
- Blue bubble: this pastilles make increase your time level. Be careful,
because if this level reach 0, you'll loose a life (In two player mode, you
won't loose a life but won't be able to act during a small time).
- Pink Bubble: add 1 live.
- Condom: allow you to pass on moving paving stones. Each time you pass a
crack with a condom, you'll loose one condom. At the end of each level,
all condom you have in rest will increase your score.

speed increasing, ...
- Double and triple shoot: by picking up this object (arrow form) you'll
see the power of your shoot increasing.
- Clock: put maximum time.
- Inflatable Vaudou Doll: in 1 player mode, it behave as the dead head, but
in 2 players mode it make drop the other player time.
- Dead Head: its effects are allways negatives and random: low speed, time
loosing, shoot reduction or suppression, ...
