    Discover the hidden secrets within the pyramid, and save the royal family!

    The hero of the game, Jack, must make his way through 16 levels of a pyramid in order to defeat the demon Belzebut and rescue the royal Pamera family. Each level is split into two parts: an action zone and a Royal Palace room. Action zones can be split up into several portions, and contain power-ups, such as money bags, Mighty Coins, and Mighty Drinks, usually hidden in treasure chests. Mighty Coins allow Jack to change colors, and Mighty Drinks add 10 seconds to the game's timer. However, be careful to not get greedy with collecting many too Mighty Coins or Mighty Drinks. Otherwise, you'll find yourself doing jumping jacks in the Torture Room!

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987) - NES:

    A FIGHT FOR WORLD PEACE

    One day a wicked plot to bring the world into ruin was instigated by King Demon Beelzebut. He kidnapped the merciful King Pamera, his beloved queen, and the fair princess, and imprisoned them in a cursed pyramid. The mighty brothers fought bravely to save the royal family, but every one of them was defeated--all except Jack. Now you and Jack challenge the King Demon to a final fight in order to restore peace to the world.

    GAME PLAY: To put an end to Beelzebut's wicked rule, you must find your way through a labyrinth of 16 Royal Palace Rooms that lead to the pyramid. On your quest, you must detonate bombs and battle with a variety of fierce palace villains. Treasure Chests containing Mighty Coins and Mighty Drinks give you more power and time. But don't be greedy. Collect too many Mighty Coins and you'll be sent to the Torture Room. Are you Mighty enough to save the Royal family?
