Original Game Instructions
Enter a galaxy of the future filled with adventure and danger -- a galaxy unlike any you
have imagined before.
You become the Hawk King -- a creature capable of incredible speed and power -- as you
attempt to capture the amazing creatures that inhabit the speeding Web of Fantasy. All 20
creatures are protected by guardians and the dreaded Cosmic Dragon and each will become
progressively more difficult to capture. No one has ever captured the elusive twentieth
creature. Will you?
Joystick: Controls the movement of Hawk King.
Button 1: Exit Trophy Room.
Button 2: Exit Trophy Room.
Button 3: Capture. Activates Hawk King's capture rod.
Button 4: Fire.
You become the Hawk King in Web Wars and you character will come into view at the bottom
of the screen. You will be soaring through the Web of Fantasy in search of the prized
creatures that inhabit this part of the universe. Your mission is to safely navigate the
Web while attempting to capture as many of the 20 species of the creatures as you can for
display in your Trophy Room.
As you begin, you will encounter squadrons of deadly guardian Drones that
protect each of the creatures. The Drones will attack you mercilessly and will destroy
Hawk King on contact. Move quickly and cautiously through the Web using your blaster to
eliminate them. The Drones may also be out-maneuvered in flight, however they will return
to follow you at a speed ten m.p.h. faster than the speed you passed them. You may slow
down and allow these Drones to get in front of you again to destroy them or speed up and
leave them behind you. The greater speed you are traveling, the higher points scored for
destroying a Drone.
When a creature appears, use the joystick to position Hawk King within the Web so that you
will meet it head-on and capture it with you Capture Rod. Once you have captured a
creature, a portal will appear within the Web -- this leads to your Trophy Room where you
place the captured creatures on display. Soar through the portal and enter the seclusion
of your Trophy Room. When you are prepared to return to the hunt, press either button 1 or
2, and you will be transported back into the Web of Fantasy.
If you fail to capture a species after two of its creatures have appeared,
or fail to enter a portal after two attempts, the dreaded Cosmic Dragon will appear in the
distance and rapidly approach you. When you are within range, it will shoot fireballs at
you with deadly accuracy. Unfortunately, you have no defense against the Cosmic Dragon
other than avoiding its fireballs with split-second adjustments in your flight pattern.
Each time the Cosmic Dragon appears, its accuracy will improve and it will fire a greater
number of fireballs. Beware!
As the Hawk King, you will be provided with five lives. Use extreme caution
as you travel through the Web. Contact with a guardian Drone, one of the creatures or one
of the Cosmic Dragon's fireballs will destroy one of your lives. Happy hunting!
Hawk King- Through the magic of Web Wars, you are transformed into Hawk King, a creature
capable of incredible power and speed. You will be equipped with a blaster that will
enable you to destroy the deadly guardian Drones that protect the fantasy creatures and a
Capture Rod which you use to capture the devilishly shrewd creatures.
Drones- The Drones are four-pointed, star-shaped bodies that travel in squadrons
protecting each of the 20 species of fantasy creatures. They may be destroyed with your
blaster of avoided in flight. However if they are not destroyed, they will return to
follow Hawk King 10 m.p.h. faster than the speed you were travelling when you originally
Fantasy Creatures- There are 20 species of these shrewd little creatures --
each more difficult to capture than the one before. Your blaster will have no effect on
them whatsoever. You can only capture them with your Capture Rod. Capture as many as you
can. Maybe you'll be the first to see AND capture the elusive twentieth specie!
Remember, that are as deadly as they are shrewd. Contact with one of the creatures will
result in a loss of one of your five lives. Cosmic Dragon- The most deadly protector of
the inhabitants of the Web, the Cosmic Dragon will appear if you fail to capture the
creatures or gain entry to your Trophy Room after two attempts. You can only avoid it
through skillful flying.
Trophy Room- By soaring through one of the entry portals, you will be able to travel to
your Trophy Room. After capturing one of the species, mount it on your wall with the rest
of your hunting trophies. You may rest briefly in the seclusion of the Room and return to
the hunt when you are again prepared to meet the challenge of the Web. You will
automatically be returned to the Web after 30 seconds if you haven't pushed one of the
