Fatman: The Caped Consumer - Manual
THE STORY SO FAR
Once-upon-a-time there was a quiet city somewhere in Cartoonland. This was
home to Roy Fat and his wife. They lived in a small house near the city
border. Roy was an inventor and a restaurant owner.
Every morning he would get up at 9am, eat nine scrambled eggs for breakfast
and go to his secret lab to work on his useful (and more than often useless)
Roy loved his food and his stomach! Therefore all his inventions were based
on food! Some examples of his creatibe genius - Food Inventing Processor
(FIP), Ice Warning Gadget (IWAG) and many other not-so-useful gadgets.
But his most useful - and by far the most succesful - invention was....
.. THE FOOD DUPLICATOR! With this wonder of modern technology he could make
a copy of any food you processed through the machine (insert a pizza and out
come TWO pizza's!). No wonder Roy's stomach was rather sizeable, to say the
least! But that wasn't the only feature the FOOD DUPLICATOR possessed; using
a 'flavouring processor algorithm' the machine actually duplicated tasty,
delicious food even when the food the machine was fed with, wasn't very good
itself....and with the stored data THE FOOD DUPLICATOR could reproduce any
food it had previously duplicated!
No wonder Roy Fat's restaurant was very famous worldwide, with lots of people
coming from all the corners of Cartoonland to eat in the 'Stomach Building
Centre', as Roy's restaurant was called
But there were also some people who didn't care for Roy's success story. A
multi-national company called Thindicate inc. that happened to be based in
Roy's home town, hated Roy Fat for his ivention more than any others.
Thindicate had a monopoly in the food market, delivering to all the markets,
shops and restaurants. But since the big opening of the 'Stomach Building
Centre', businesswas going down the hill for Thindicate. Ted Thinsin, the
managing director and evil mind behind Thindicate Inc. tried evrything to get
to get this new and hugely successful competition wiped off the map. He tried
to convince Roy to sell the duplicator to Thindicate to mass-produce it, so
the whole world could enjoy the unbelievable taste. Roy decided to go into
business with Ted, but in the last minute, he got a tip from Ted's secretary
that Thindicate wanted to destroy the duplicator to regain the monopoly!
Ted was absolutely furious when Roy didn't hand over THE FOOD DUPLICATOR!
Very, very furious....

Power from the deeper places! This ones powerful, so use with care! Picking
up the extra belch icons available in some levels will give you enough to
fuel another three burps!

Carrots dont look nice, dont taste particulary good and they aren't packed
with calories... so what are they for??? Weapons! Throw them at your enemies
and pick up 5 extras with the special icon.
THE POISONOUS MUSHROOM!
Another powerful one. Drop it on enemies and away they go!.
