On the Configuration screen, press the D-Button up or down to move the marker from one category to the next. Then press the D-Button left or right, or press Button A or B to reveal choices in the selected category.
Lives: The number of Cobras (2-5) you have for each credit.
Extra Lives: When your score reaches certain levels you may receive an extra chopper. There are four different arrangements. You can choose to get an extra helicopter at 70,000 and again at 200,000 points, at 50,000 and again at 150,000, at 10,000 only, or you can give up your change for an extra Cobra by selecting "No Extend." Each time you use up a credit, your score is reset to zero.
Game difficulty: There are eight levels to choose from: Easy A, B, C and D, and Hard A, B, C, and D. The number of credits you get depends on the level you select. The harder the level, the more credits you receive (as shown in the following chart).
Control: Here's where you choose the functions of Buttons A, B and C during play. Try all four arrangements and find the one that suits you.
Rapid Fire: Select "On" to play with rapid fire, or "Off" to try your luck without it.
Music: Sample any one of the ten soundtracks. Press the D-Button left or right to reveal a title, then press Button A to hear that track. Pressing Button B turns the sound off.
Press the Start Button to return to the Title screen. To begin play, insure that the marker is next to "Start," then press the Start Button.
