Gremlins 2: The New Batch - Manual
It's been a number of years since the Gremlins(tm) night of carnage in
the peaceful town of Kingston Falls(tm) and Gizmo(tm), the sweet Mogwai(tm)
is back under the protection of Mr. Wing(tm), the old storekeeper in New
York's Chinatown. Mr. Wing(tm) has been rejecting offers from super-tycoon
Daniel Clamp(tm) to buy his store to clear the way for a huge real estate
development, but the old man passes away and after a few months Clamp Plaza
(tm) is now a reality.
Working in the complex which contains shops, restaurant, a stock
brokerage and cable T.V. Network, are Billy Peltzer(tm), Gizmo's(tm)
previous owner and his girlfriend Kate(tm). Now Billy is a commercial artist
in the Clamp(tm) advertising department, and Kate(tm) is a tour guide for
Unbeknown to Billy(tm) and Kate(tm), Gizmo(tm) is now a prisoner in
Clamp's(tm)genetics laboratory, awaiting experimentation. But when Billy(tm)
hears a messenger absentmindedly humming Gizmo's(tm) familiar song, he
realises his Mogwai(tm) friend is nearby. Billy(tm) manages to find
Gizmo(tm) and free him. Billy(tm) leaves Gizmo(tm) in what he thinks is the
safety of his desk drawer with instructions for Kate(tm) to pick up the
Mogwai(tm) after work. However Gizmo(tm) decides to explore Billy's(tm)
office accidentally becomes wet as a maintenance man tries to fix a faulty
drinking faountain. The four new Mogwais(tm), Mohawk(tm), Lenny(tm),
George(tm) and Daffy(tm) immediately dump Gizmo(tm) into a vent and head off
into the vast Clamp Plaza(tm) to make mischief.
After a midnight feast the mischevious Mogwais(tm) re-appear the
following morning as Gremlins(tm) with their own unique brand of humour and
love of destruction. All hell breaks loose in Clamp Plaza(tm) as a fire
sprinkler system produces Gremlins(tm) Galore who then cause chaos trading
stock, running the Cable T.V. studio and drinking experimental liquids in
the genetics lab, which produces weird and dangerous mutations.
Mayhem ensues, meanwhile Gizmo(tm) who has had enough of being pushed
around, is preparing to fight back and Billy(tm) is making plans to dispose
of the marauding Gremlins(tm) before nightfall when they will be able to run
riot around New York.
Can you, as Billy(tm), survive the journey through Clamp Plaza(tm),
combatting the hordes of Gremlins(tm) on the loose, with occasional help
from Gizmo(tm) and collect all of the parts necessary for your plan to
destroy the Gremlins(tm) for good.
