1 FAQ Purpose and Comments
--------------------------

1.1 Reason for this FAQ
-----------------------
The reason I wrote this FAQ is quite simple.  I love to play fighting
games but hate to figure out the moves.  Mastering the moves and
whipping the other fighters is what makes a fighting game fun!  I hate
it when fighting game developers leave it up to the players to figure
most everything out.  And you know, most all of them do this.  Who the
heck started this dumb practice anyway? :)

Well for those of you who want to know most of the fighting moves when
you boot up the game, this FAQ's for you!  Prepare yourself for some all
out, blood-spurting fighting fun!!


1.2 Changes made in FAQ Version 1.1
-----------------------------------
I added the following:

  * More fighter data in Section 4.
  * Flambe' move sequence in Section 9.
  * Moves for Parasite, Champion, and Grand Champion in Section 9.
  * Selena's 2nd Meat move in Section 9!
  * A big bunch of secret codes in Section 10--BISHOP, BLARNEY, BLOOD,
    CHAMPS, GLASSJAW, HELIUM, INVISIBLE, ORCHID, SHADOWS, THOUGHTJINX,
    and XACMAN!
  * More fun stuff in Section 11.
  * A new section, Section 12 "Thanks go to...", to give credit to those
    who have helped hunt down XENOPHAGE's secret stuff.

I changed the following:

  * Spike's Tail Spike move now shown with the correct easier sequence
    in Sections 9.5 and 9.6.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 What is XENOPHAGE?
--------------------

2.1 What it is
--------------
XENOPHAGE is a fighting game for the PC that's in the same genre as the
arcade classics Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat.  The game displays
a 2-dimensional scrolling side view of the combatants during each fight.
What makes this game unique is the camera panning feature which zooms
the view in and out depending on how far away each fighter is from the
other fighter.  And if you want it to look like other 2-D fighting
games, you can easily turn the zooming feature off.

Other features include:

  * 8 fighters and 2 boss champions (ummm...actually 3 boss champions!)
  * Support of high-res (SVGA) 640x400 and 640x480 modes for greater
    graphic detail
  * Fighters that are fully rendered, extremely detailed, and quite
    large--almost as tall as the computer screen when you have the
    camera panning feature turned on
  * Adjustable shadows
  * Animated background environments/arenas for each fighter
  * Unique moves/combos for each fighter
  * Humiliation of defeated fighters
  * Resurrection moves to bring your "defeated" fighter back to life
  * Story mode, Free Play mode, and Training mode
  * Fine-tune adjustment of your fighter(s) in both Free Play and
    Traning modes
  * A meter to adjust the amount of bloody gore on the screen
  * An Instant Replay Box that pops up after you execute a fancy combo
    move
  * Different music for each fighter/environment


2.2 The Creators and Publisher
------------------------------
XENOPHAGE was developed by Argo Games and is published by Apogee
Software, Ltd.  The retail store version is distributed by FormGen
Incorporated.

The game lists the creators as being:

              Jason Blochowiak    - Producer and Programmer
              Rowan Atalla        - Design and Character Actions
              Abraham Edlin       - AI Personalities
              Robert Prince       - Music and Sound Effects
              Jim Dose'           - Apogee Sound System
              Saffire Corporation - Backgrounds, Original Character
                                      Models and Motions
              Dov Jelen           - Art Bits
              Lori Richards       - Art Bits

Additional credits for the registered version booklet:

              Michael Hadwin      - Graphic Design
              Bob Depew           - Cover Illustration


2.3 Hardware Requirements
-------------------------
Apogee lists a minimum required system as being an IBM PC or 100%
compatible 486DX/33 with at least 8Mb of RAM memory, a double speed
CD-ROM (for the registered version), and MS-DOS 3.3 or higher.  However,
they recommend a Pentium 66 mhz PC or better, 16 Mb of RAM memory, Vesa
Local Bus or PCI video, VESA BIOS compatible 256 SVGA at 640x400 or
640x480, a quad speed CD-ROM (for the registered version), a 16-bit
sound card with wavetable synthesis, and a speed compensating joystick.

For more information, run the On-Disk Technical Support Manual program
that comes with both the shareware and registered versions (XPHELP.EXE).
This help program gives a whole bunch of tips on setting up the game and
fixing any problems.  There's also a nice section on XENOPHAGE fighting
tips, most of which are mentioned in this FAQ.


2.4 Software Versions
---------------------
Apogee has released 3 versions of XENOPHAGE (plus a preview and a
slideshow).


2.4.1 Beta Demo
---------------
The first XENOPHAGE release was a beta demo version that was released on
12-28-95. This was a work-in-progress of the shareware version to get
feedback on any potential hardware bugs.  You should probably forget
trying to find the beta version.  I only mention it here as a point of
reference.  The shareware version is the one to try out since it is
virtually bug-free with smoother animations and better gameplay, and
gives you a better feel for the registered version.


2.4.2 Shareware Version
-----------------------
The next release of XENOPHAGE was the shareware version of XENOPHAGE on
4-26-96.  The shareware version features 3 fighters:  Spike, Bat, and
Toad, and has 2 of the 3 fighting modes:  Practice mode and Free Play
modes.  This version is more like a demo, since it only gives you a tiny
taste of what the registered version is like.  The current shareware
version number is 1.0.  There might be a future version 1.1 release
(which would include some very minor fixes to version number 1.0) to
correspond with the fixes done in the initial release of the registered
version.


2.4.3 Registered Version
------------------------
The registered version of XENOPHAGE is really what this FAQ is about.
This version features 8 regular fighters plus 2 champion boss fighters,
3 fighting modes:  Story mode, Free Play mode, and Training mode, a new
intro animation with voice-overs, and a different ending animation for
each of the fighters in Story mode.  The current and initial registered
version number is 1.1.


2.5 Where you can get it
------------------------
You can download the shareware version from the following sites:

   From the Internet - Apogee's web site - http://www.apogee1.com

   From Apogee's Home BBS - Software Creations BBS: 508-368-7036

The registered version can be ordered directly from Apogee by calling
1-800-APOGEE1.  You can also buy it in retail software stores too.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
3 The Story - Why are these strange creatures fighting?
-------------------------------------------------------
The Apogee catalog gives a good summary of the story:

  "A godlike alien race has become so bored that they rely on other
  species to provide them entertainment.  They've snatched
  representatives from the universe's most feared species and organized
  a fighting tournament.  The loser forfeits breeding rights for its
  entire race!  The tournament winner gets the honor of dying at the
  hands of the Grand Champion."

Of course, you'll get a better gist of the story when you watch the
animated intro in the registered version.  Among other things it shows
poor Nick and Selena being snatched by the aliens plus a cool planetary
explosion.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
4 The Fighters and Their Environments
-------------------------------------
There are 11 alien fighters (12 if you count the secret Blarney fighter)
in the registered version.  (See Sections 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 on what is
different between the shareware and registered versions.)  You can play
as 8 of the regular fighters in all 3 fighting modes.  You are able to
fight the 3 Boss fighters, Parasite, Champion, and Grand Champion, in
Story mode. (By using a special cheat code, you can also play as the 3
Boss fighters too in all 3 fighting modes, as well as fight them in Free
Play and Story modes.  See Section 10.)

BTW, I have purposely not assumed that any of the alien fighters are
male or female (unless it is obvious like Selena or Nick).  I leave it
up to your judgment on whether an alien fighter is a male, a female, or
an IT!

The fighters/environments are listed in the order that you see them on
the Fighter Selection Screen in the registered version, from left to
right.  And the last 3 Boss fighters are listed in the order that you
fight them in Story Mode.


4.1 Mouth
---------
Mouth has a huge blue head with beady red eyes.  Its head-body walks on
4 short-legged webbed feet with 2 arm-hands hanging out the front. Mouth
comes from Orus, a world that has a deep space observatory for studying
the universe.  Be careful of Mouth's large strong hands and its leaping
attack!


4.2 Nick
--------
Nick looks to be a man of nature well-versed in the martial arts.  He
comes from Earth and lives the rough life out in the woods by a
waterfall.  Check out the dripping deer carcass hanging on his cabin!
Nick is very good doing kick attacks and can even throw out a mental
field of force!


4.3 Toad
--------
Toad is a fierce, green lizard-type creature with huge teeth and a
spiked tail.  Its homeworld, Zong, looks to be swampy with lots of small
oozing plants.  Watch out for Toad's fast attack and swinging spiked
tail!


4.4 Bat
-------
Bat is a red, bat-humanoid creature.  It has the ability to fly and spin
quickly through the air.  The homeworld of Bat, Fleder, appears to be
dark, moist, and underground with small luminous creatures flying about.
Bat has various spinning attacks and can avoid being hit by just flying
up and away.  Like a true bat, this critter will suck your blood if
given a chance.


4.5 Spike
---------
Spike is yellow and spider-like and one of the more dangerous fighters.
Spike comes from SFPN-10, a purplish, bubbling world.  Watch the eggs in
the background drop to the ground and hatch into crawling worms!  You
best beware of Spike's quickness and green goo attacks.  Like Bat, Spike
also loves to suck blood from an opponent now and then.


4.6 Worm
--------
Worm is just that....a blue-grey worm creation with 3 appendages for
movement, and a 4th appendage used as a head with a biting pincer.  Worm
comes from Moreau's World, which has a laboratory filled with a
collection of alien life-forms stored in jars.  Worm has rolling
quickness with a fierce rolled-up flying attack.


4.7 Squid
---------
Squid looks like a huge orange-brown alien squid with long tentacles for
arms and a round sucking mouth.  This large critter hails from Calamis
and fights in what looks to be a ship-like hull with big electrodes
shooting electricity in the background.  Squid is big and strong and
loves to do belly-flops on your head!


4.8 Selena
----------
Selena is a city girl from Earth who is a lean, mean fighting machine!
She lives in a well-furnished penthouse apartment complete with big
screen TV, fireplace and fishtank!  Selena has a vicious kick attack and
knows how to wield her mental force sword!


4.9 Parasite
------------
Parasite is a fast, evil-looking scavenger alien.  This reddish boss
critter has a head with pincers in the middle of upper and lower legs
that move around like a pinwheel.  Its homeworld of Bysmol has living
purplish caves with sucking mouths in the walls.  Yellow fields of
energy are this creature's specialty along with a fast warping move.


4.10 Champion
-------------
Watch out for Champion.  This "alien" creature is big, dark-green, and
wants you very dead.  Champion's home-world environment of Mallochia is
dark grey and purple with floating, grinning heads!  The big critter
throws some sharp spikes and knows how to do a quick change when needed!


4.11 Grand Champion
-------------------
This creature is one big, nasty surprise!  This morphed, bigger version
of Champion has 2 arms with claws on an alien body with 4 horse-like
legs.  Beware of flying spit!


4.12 Fighter Stat Comparison
----------------------------
Check out the cool fold-out picture of all the fighters in the
registered booklet!  Below are some fighter stat comparisons from that
fold-out.  There were no stats given for Grand Champion, but I would
assume that the Stamina, Strength, and Weakness stats of Grand Champion
closely corresond to those of Champion.

   Fighter   Wt(lbs.)       Ht.       Stamina
   --------  --------      ----       -------
   Mouth         400       4'2"          High
   Nick          211       6'2"       Average
   Toad          336       5'1"       Average
   Bat           130       5'11"          Low
   Spike         187       6'4"           Low
   Worm          253       4'0"       Average
   Squid         650       6'0"          High
   Selena        112       5'7"       Average
   Parasite      145       5'6"          High
   Champion     1652       6'1"       Average


   Fighter   Strength              Weakness
   --------  -------------------   ------------------------------------
   Mouth     Long reach            Bulky & slow
   Nick      Military training     No natural defenses
   Toad      Sharp, razor teeth    Long, bulky body
   Bat       Aerial Combat         Not very strong
   Spike     Very fast!            Short reach
   Worm      Very compact!         No long range contacts
   Squid     Very strong!          Very slow!
   Selena    Speed & flexibility   No natural defenses
   Parasite  Variety of attacks    Some attacks are hard to recover from
   Champion  Fast, aggressive      Very few!


4.13 Fighter Twins
------------------
Each of the 11 fighters that you can pick in the registered version of
Free Play and Story modes has a corresponding fighter twin.  (You need
a special cheat code to fight as the 3 Boss fighters.  See Section 10.)
That is to say, for example, that Nick can battle Nick or Worm can
battle Worm.  It would get very confusing in a fight if the
corresponding twin looked exactly like your fighter.  So in XENOPHAGE
there are easily distinguishable differences between the 2 fighters.
Here's a list of the 11 fighters and what makes them different from
their related twin:

              Normal Fighter                Twin Fighter
              ----------------------------  ----------------------------
   Mouth      blue body                     green body
   Nick       red shirt                     green shirt
   Toad       green body                    brown body
   Bat        red body with red blood       blue body with blue blood
   Spike      yellow body with green blood  green body with yellow blood
   Worm       blue body                     purple body
   Squid      orange-brown body             light yellow body
                       with orangish blood       with light yellow blood
   Selena     red-brown hair & blue skirt   brown hair & green skirt
   Parasite   pink & red body               light blue & dark blue body
   Champion   green & black body            tan & black body
   Grand
    Champion  green & black body            tan, black, & brown body
                       with grey blood           with blue-grey blood


------------------------------------------------------------------------
5 The Demo Intro
----------------
When you start XENOPHAGE you get a demo sequence that gives you a
briefing of the game story, a view of some actual fights, and a listing
of the game's creators (the first time through the demo loop).  You can
exit the demo to XENOPHAGE's Main Menu by hitting any keyboard key, and
can go back to the demo at any time by selecting the Return to Demo
option on the Main Menu.

The shareware version has a short animated game briefing.  It shows an
alien creature explaining to you why you are fighting.  The registered
version has a much longer animated story intro.  You first catch a
glimpse of Nick and Selena being captured.  Then you see Nick watching a
holographic screen, and actually get to hear the alien telling Nick why
he was captured.  A cool planetary explosion animation follows with Nick
being whisked away in the alien space ship.

Whereas the shareware demo only shows fights with the demo characters,
the registered version demo has fight sequences between the 8 main
fighters of the full version.  BTW, you don't get to see any fights with
the boss fighters.  You earn that right by fighting your way completely
through Story Mode.

The fight sequences in the demo are a good place to watch the fighters
do some of their special moves and combos.  Watch carefully and you'll
see some cool moves that you'll want to try.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
6 Game Options
--------------
One item you can select on XENOPHAGE's Main Menu is Options.  This takes
you to a screen where you can set up or change the player control
devices, sound, music, and display parameters.


6.1 Controls, Sound, & Music
----------------------------
I won't go into much detail about the controls, sounds, and music
options since these items are pretty much self-explanatory by looking at
the screens.  In the controls section you can set up and calibrate your
joysticks and reassign keys that you'll be using for the fighting moves
of Players 1 and 2.  In the sounds and music sections, you can adjust
volumes and do some other minor adjustments.

One very nice feature in XENOPHAGE is that you have complete access to
these options while fighting in the Story and Free Play modes.  (See
Section 7 for information on these modes of play.)  You just hit the
Escape key to temporarily exit out of the current fight. You'll see an
option on the menu that comes up that says Options, where you can
fine-tune your controls, sound, and music.  When you're finished with
your adjustments, you can go back into the current fight by picking
Return to Fight off the menu.


6.2 Display Options - The Blood Meter!
--------------------------------------
The Display Options Screen is where you can turn on and off some of the
cool stuff in the game.  Here's a list of the options:

                                      brighter screen

If you have a low-end 486, a low-end video card, or just 8 Meg of
memory, and the game is running slow or having display problems, you can
experiment a little bit by turning some of these options off and seeing
what happens.  If you have a fast Pentium machine with lots of memory,
you'll want to set most of these to On for the best fight experience.

Here is a short description of XENOPHAGE's 3 cool display features you
can turn on or off:

  * Camera Zooming is one of XENOPHAGE's most unique features.  Turn
    this on if you want to see the game zoom up close to the fighters
    (when they're close together) and display them almost as high as
    your computer screen.  If you want to get a good view of the
    background environment, turn Camera Zooming off.  You'll see the
    full background that the fighters are fighting in like in other 2D
    fighting games, but the fighters will be much smaller.

  * The Amount of Blood meter adjusts how much blood is thrown off the
    fighters when hit.  If you want no blood, push the meter all the way
    to the left.  If you like lots of blood, then push the meter over to
    the right.

  * The Instant Replay feature can be turned on or off from this menu.
    If turned on, when you execute a successful 3-hit combo or better
    against the opposing fighter, a small Instant Replay box will appear
    in the middle bottom of your screen and replay your cool combo move
    along with all the bloody effects!


------------------------------------------------------------------------
7 The Modes of Play
-------------------
I've listed the playing modes in reverse order of how they appear in the
game menus since it is easier to talk about them this way.


7.1 Training
------------
Training mode is where you go to figure out moves for each fighter.  You
can also use this mode to practice and hone the moves you know without
being beat up by the opposing fighter, at least not too much!  You get
to do your training against a pumped up punching bag that looks like a
clown.  You have to be careful when punching the clown-bag since it'll
swing back and forth, and just might swing back and hit you.  If it
does, it'll let out a laughing squeaking sound.


7.1.1 Player Options Screen
---------------------------
An extremely useful feature of Training mode is the Player Options
Screen. Here you can fine-tune how your fighter will act in this
practice mode. Here's a list of what is on the Player Options screen and
the range of options:

         Player Control - Keyboard or Joystick 1 (or 2)
         Specials       - Enabled or Disabled
         Throws/Pummels - Enabled or Disabled
         Auto Block     - On or Off <----If you are just beginning or
                                         are having trouble blocking
                                         the clown as it swings back and
                                         forth, turn this option on!
         Meters (for extra-fine adjustments):
         Strength - To the left is weak and to the right is strong.  For
                    example, put the meter farther to the right for
                    stronger punches.
         Speed    - To the left is slow and to the right is fast (or
                    turbo).
         Health   - To the left is bad health and to the right is good
                    health.  For example, the health meter of a fighter
                    that has a low health setting will drop quicker when
                    being hit than a fighter with a higher health
                    setting.

For example, suppose you want to just concentrate on doing special moves
and don't want your fighter to screw things up by also doing throws or
pummels (see Section 9 for info on these differing move types).  It's
easy to do by toggling Special Moves to the enable setting and toggling
Throws/Pummels to the disable setting.  Or suppose you want to have your
fighter practice in a super turbo mode.  Just move the Speed meter all
the way to the right.


7.2 Free Play
-------------
Free Play is a great play mode for a number of reasons.  Here you can
have a 2-player fight and go head-to-head with a buddy.  You can also do
a 1-player fight against the 8 different computerized alien fighters of
the registered version.  (See Sections 2.4.2 and 2.4.3 for differences
between the shareware and registered versions.)  Or you can switch off
the opposing fighter, by setting that fighter's controls to keyboard or
joystick, and practice executing the Overkill (MEAT) moves (see Section
9.4.1 for more information on Overkills).

One important thing to note.  Free Play mode is especially useful when
you get stuck in Story mode (see Section 7.3 for a discussion on Story
mode). You might find that you just can't get past a tough alien in
Story mode.  Don't give up!  Just go to Free Play mode, adjust the
fighter settings the way you want them, and then practice against your
computerized toughie like crazy until you figure out the right moves to
beat 'em to a pulp!

Free Play has a wide range of options you can set to fine-tune your
fighter, the opposing fighter, and the matches.  Most anything you want
to adjust can be found in the Match Options and Player Options screens.


7.2.1 Match Options Screen
--------------------------
Here's a list of what is on the Match Options Screen and the range of
options:

         Rounds per Match - 1, 3, or 5
         Match Time - 15 secs, 30 secs, 60 secs, 90 secs, or 5 minutes
         Overkills - On or Off
         Post-Mortem Humiliations - On or Off
         Resurrections - On or Off

Overkills (MEAT moves), Post-Mortem Humiliations, and Resurrections are
cool options to turn on.  See Section 9.4 for a discussion on what these
moves/features are about.


7.2.2 Player Options Screen
---------------------------
And here's a list of what is on the Player Options Screen and the range
of options.  I'm only listing the column for Player 1.  There is also a
second column where you can adjust the settings for Player 2.  One very
nice feature of the Player Options is that you can adjust them while
you're in the middle of a fight by just hitting the Escape key.  This
way you can get these options set just the way you want them without
having to restart a fight:

         Player 1 Type  - Keyboard or Joystick 1 (or 2)
         Specials       - Enabled or Disabled
         Throws/Pummels - Enabled or Disabled
         Auto Block     - On or Off <----If you are just beginning or
                                         are having trouble blocking
                                         your fast opponent's moves,
                                         turn this option on!
         Meters (for extra-fine adjustments):
         Cunning  - To the left is dumb and to the right is smart.  This
                    meter can only be adjusted for the computerized
                    fighter.
         Strength - To the left is weak and to the right is strong.  For
                    example, put the meter farther to the right for
                    stronger punches.
         Speed    - To the left is slow and to the right is fast (or
                    turbo).
         Health   - To the left is bad health and to the right is good
                    health.  For example, the health meter of a fighter
                    that has a low health setting will drop quicker when
                    being hit than a fighter with a higher health
                    setting.


7.2.3 Current Stats Screen
--------------------------
After you win or lose a fight in Free Play mode, the game will show you
a screen listing the current stats for all the players.  I won't detail
what all the screen shows, but let me just say it contains a complete
record of Wins/Losses for Players 1 and 2 for all fights, listed by
fighter in an easy to read format.  Do you have a friend who swears they
beat you at XENOPHAGE all the time?  Just pull up the Current Stats
screen from the Free Play menu and prove just who is the boss!  If you
tire of the collected stat information, there's an option on the Free
Play menu to reset the stats back to zero.


7.3 Story Mode
--------------
Most all fighting games have a "Story Mode".  This is a single-player
mode where you pick a fighter and have them do battle, one at a time,
against all the other computerized fighters.  It's called story mode
since this tournament style of fighting follows the initial story of the
game.  In XENOPHAGE, the story is that your fighter has been captured
and must battle other alien fighters so that you can then suffer defeat
at the hands of the Grand Champion and lose your species' propagation
rights.  But if you can miraculously beat the Grand Champion of
XENOPHAGE, then you get a special, unique animated ending based solely
on your winning fighter!  Are you good enough to see all the different
animated endings?


7.3.1 Match Options Screen
--------------------------
Like Free Play mode, Story mode also has a Match Options Screen.  Here's
a list of what is on the Match Options Screen and the range of options:

         Rounds per Match - 1, 3, or 5
         Match Time - 15 secs, 30 secs, 60 secs, 90 secs, or 5 minutes
         Overkills - On or Off
         Post-Mortem Humiliations - On or Off
         Resurrections - On or Off

Overkills (MEAT moves), Post-Mortem Humiliations, and Resurrections are
cool options to turn on.  See Section 9.4 for a discussion on what these
moves/features are about.


7.3.2 Difficulty Modes
----------------------
After you have selected your fighter in Story mode, the game lets you
select from 5 different Difficulty modes:

         Very Easy (No Bosses)
         Easy (Only One Boss)
         Normal
         Hard
         Very Hard

XENOPHAGE differs from most all other fighting games in that its Story
mode can be played and enjoyed by all players, whether you are just
starting out with virtually no fighting skills or a seasoned gamer who
think you are hot stuff.  In most all other fighting games I've played,
you have to have some good practiced fighting techniques before you can
even touch Story mode.

If you are a novice to fighting games, select Very Easy.  This mode is
strictly for beginners, and seasoned players will find it way too easy
and probably boring.  If you are relatively good at fighting games,
start at Normal and work your way up.  Normal mode is tough but very
playable.  Hard mode will give you a good sweaty workout.  And Very Hard
mode will, shall we say, really test the die-hard fast-fingered players.


7.3.3 The Fighter Wheel
-----------------------
After you have selected your mode of difficulty, Story mode pops up a
screen with the Fighter Wheel.  This is a wheel with head pictures of
the 8 fighters you must defeat (including your fighter twin), one at a
time, before you face the 3 Boss fighters.  If you are playing in a
Difficulty mode where you will fight the Boss fighters (see Section
7.3.2 for description of Difficulty modes), then the picture of the Boss
fighter you will face will appear in the middle of the wheel right
before you do battle with that Boss.

A nice feature of XENOPHAGE that makes the Story mode of play more
unpredictable and exciting, is that the order of the 8 fighters you will
face are always different.  Each time you play Story mode, you never
know who you are going to face first or when, until you see the pictures
of the other fighters on the Fighter Wheel.


7.3.4 Life Credits
------------------
Story mode gives you 3 life credits in case you should lose a fight with
any of the fighter opponents.  In other words, you can lose 3 fights and
still continue.  But if you lose the 4th time, then the game is over.

If you lose a fight and choose to use a credit, the game shows your
fighter being zapped back to life.  You can also choose to forfeit the
game, and in this case the game is over and you are shown an animation
of being packed away into one of the many body drawers on the alien
space ship.


------------------------------------------------------------------------
8 FIGHT!
--------
Okay.  You just booted up the game and want to play right away without
reading a bunch of stuff.  But you're not really sure what you're doing
or what the stuff means on the Fight Screen.  Here are some quick
comments and info to help you get going.


8.1 Huh?--For Beginners Only
----------------------------
You've never played a fighting game before and have no idea what to do?
I would suggest you try Training mode first to get your feet wet and to
get some feel on how to move ONE of the fighters.  Read through Section
9 of this FAQ so that you know how to move the fighter you're using and
try some of the basic moves...jump, move forwards, move backwards,
punch, kick, block, etc.  When you feel comfortable with the basic
moves, then try executing some of the fancier moves that are also listed
in Section 9 for your fighter.

Next, go to Free Play mode where you can try the moves you've learned
for your fighter against one of the computerized fighters.  If you get
frustrated because you keep losing, go into the Player Options and turn
your Health meter all the way to the right, turn your opponent's Health
meter all the way to the left, and turn your opponent's Cunning and
Speed meters to the left a few notches.  This should give you enough of
an advantage to beat the other fighter.  Once you're feeling more
confident, you can readjust the meters you changed to tougher settings.
A quick way to do this is just select Reset Player Options off the menu,
which will turn the meters back to their default settings.

After you've practiced against some of the other computerized fighters
in Free Play mode and you start feeling somewhat confident with your
fighter, try going against a friend in Free Play mode.  Or try your luck
in Story mode.  If you want to feel good about your fighting skills,
play Story mode at the Very Easy (No Boss) Difficulty level.  You should
be able to beat the other fighters without too much of a problem.

Next try practicing using other fighters.  Experiment with various
Player Options and Match Options.  Try Story mode at higher difficulty
levels.  You're on your way to mastering XENOPHAGE!


8.2 The FIGHT Screen
--------------------
The layout of the Fight Screen is very simple.  Most of the screen shows
the action of the fight.  At the bottom of the screen, you'll find an
area that shows the current status for each of the 2 fighters.  The area
on the left shows the stats for the fighter that started on the left, or
Player 1, and the area on the right shows the stats for the fighter that
started on the right, or Player 2.  A small head picture is shown beside
each status area to remind you which stats go to which fighter.  In the
middle of the 2 fighter status areas is an area that reminds you that
you can hit "F1" for basic help with the fight moves.

The status area for each fighter has 3 main areas of information.  The
top part shows a health bar of the fighter's blood.  As a fighter gets
hit, the blood starts flowing out of the meter.  When the blood is gone,
the fighter is dead and loses that round of the fight.  Below the health
bar is small area that shows the number of fight rounds the fighter has
won.  A green circle appears for each round a fighter has won.  (Of
course, this part of the status display isn't used for Training mode.)
The bottom part of the display shows the number of points the fighter
has scored on the other fighter.

As you fight, you'll notice the computer will quickly flash up a message
when you've scored a combo, executed a Resurrection move, or performed a
Post-Mortem Humiliation on the other fighter.  You'll also notice that
sometimes the screen will turn red, and it's during this period of time
when you can execute a Meat move.  (See Section 9.4 for more information
about these moves.)  The Resurrection move, Meat Moves, or Post-Mortem
Humiliation can't be performed in Training mode, so you won't see any
messages for these moves while practicing in this mode.  (See Section 7
to read about the different modes of play.)


------------------------------------------------------------------------
9 The Moves!
------------
Here's the meat of the FAQ.  This is what you're reading this for, isn't
it?  So let's get going!


9.1 Shortcut Codes
------------------
Before I start a discussion on the fighting moves, you need to know the
shortcut codes I'll be using for the keystrokes/joystick buttons you'll
be pressing to execute the moves.  For consistency, I'll be using most
of the same codes that Apogee lists in their XENOPHAGE On-Disk Technical
Support Manual.

The shortcut Directional Codes listed here correspond to the arrow keys
on your keyboard (default setup for first player or whatever other keys
you have assigned in the Setup program), the directional pad on your
gamepad, or the movement of your joystick lever.  If your fighter is
facing to the right--------->, the shortcut Directional Codes are:

       UA    U     UT          UA=Up Away     U=Up      UT=Up Towards

       A     .      T           A=Away                   T=Towards

       DA    D     DT          DA=Down Away   D=Down    DT=Down Towards

Apogee lists the following shortcut Attack Codes for punching and
kicking:

       P=Punch (Weak or Strong)
       K=Kick  (Weak or Strong)
      WP=Weak Punch
      SP=Strong Punch
      WK=Weak Kick
      SK=Strong Kick

However, I WILL NOT be using these when I describe the moves.  Instead I
will spell out the word and use that in place of the shortcut code.  If
it is a Strong Kick, I will use "Strong Kick" and won't show it as "SK".
I think this should cut down confusion on having too many codes, and
should get you learning the moves more quickly.

Also in many of the moves, I list just the generic form of the attack
like "Punch", instead of being more specific with "Weak Punch" or
"Strong Punch".  Usually, just try using the weak attack key first when
practicing the move and that should work.

Important to Note:  The Punch/Kick moves correspond to the keys/buttons
you set up for your keyboard/joystick.  If your joystick/gamepad has 4
buttons, then the weak and strong moves can be executed by pressing
separate buttons. However, if your joystick/gamepad is set up as only
having 2 buttons, then the weak and strong moves are executed by the
amount of time you hold a button down.  For example, a quick tap on the
joystick button would do a weak attack, while a longer press on that
same button will do a strong attack.


9.2 Move Intro
--------------
Read this section especially if you are having problems executing some
of the moves for the fighters.


9.2.1 Pointers
--------------
You'll notice that most of the moves are continuous quarter sweeps of
the directional keys which are followed by pressing an attack button.
Take a look down at Toad's Projectile and Tail Swipe moves for some good
examples (Section 9.5).

You should note that if you do these moves with the KEYBOARD, that the
pressing of the keys should be very smooth from one to the next.  You
should press down on the second key before you let go of the first key.
And the last directional key should be held down while the attack button
is pushed.  Also if you are doing a quarter sweep on the keyboard where
you're going from one direction to the other, the middle key of the
sequence can be ignored as long as you press down on the third
directional key before you release the first directional key.  For
example, Toad's Tail Swipe move could be executed by doing: D,T-Punch.


9.2.2 Combos
------------
Combos are a fast sequence of successful attacks that are done so
quickly that the attacker doesn't stop moving between the attacks.
Combo-finishers are special moves that can only be done after a
successful execution of a combo attack.  And some fighters can even do a
fancy move after the combo-finisher.  All the fighters are capable of
doing the combo moves.  Look down at Nick's moves and you'll find a cool
combo/combo finisher that he can execute.  Even though some of the moves
I have listed for the fighters might be combos, I don't designate them
as such.  And I'm sure there's plenty of the fighter combo moves that
aren't listed.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get more of these codes to
put in a future version of this FAQ.


9.3 The Basic Moves for all Fighters
------------------------------------
Here's the basic moves common to all the fighters (refer above to the
shortcut Directional Codes in Section 9.1):

  Basic Movement      -  A = Walk backwards
                         T = Walk forwards
                         U = Jump up
                        UA = Jump left
                        UT = Jump right

  Block an Attack     -  A = Standing block while walking, or will just
                              block if at the far edge of the screen
                        DA = Crouching block

                        If you are just beginning and trying to learn
                        the moves or have a fighter opponent who is just
                        too fast for you, you can turn on the Auto Block
                        feature in the Player Options screen of either
                        Training or Free Play modes.

  Throw the Opponent  - T-Punch while near the other fighter (in other
                        words, hold down the T directional key as you
                        then hit the Punch key)

  Pummel the Opponent - T-Kick while near the other fighter (in other
                        words,  hold down the T directional key as you
                        then hit the Kick key)


9.4 Two Special Moves Plus a Goodie
-----------------------------------
The following 3 special moves, Overkill, Flambe', and Resurrection, plus
the extra goodie, Humiliation, can be done by the fighters only if you
have them turned to On in the Match Options Screen for the Story and
Free Play modes.  (The special Flambe' move can only be done if you have
Overkills turned on.)  They will not work in Training mode.  Each
fighter has their own key sequence on how to launch the 3 special attack
moves.


9.4.1 Overkills - The Meat Move
-------------------------------
Right at the very end of a fight (say at the end of Round 3 of a 3 Round
fight) when the other fighter's health is close to nothing, the screen
will turn red.  When this happens, move up close to the other fighter
and execute your fighter's special Meat move.  Your fighter will do a
very bloody head-ripping-type of move to the other fighter, and the
screen will say "MEAT" in big red letters.  Here's a list of the Meat
moves for each of the 11 fighters.  Unknown moves are shown with a "??".

       Mouth     - D,DT,T-Punch
       Nick      - D,DA,A-Strong Kick
       Toad      - D,DT,T-Kick
       Bat       - U,T-Punch
       Spike     - D,DT,T-Kick
       Worm      - D,DT,T-Kick
       Squid     - D,DA,A-Strong Punch
       Selena    - D,DT,T-Kick
       Selena    - T,DT,D,DA,A-Strong Punch  <--- Meat Move #2!
       Parasite  - ??
       Champion  - ??
       Grand
        Champion - NA

There does appear to be a Meat move possible for 2 of the Boss fighters,
Parasite and Champion.  However, there doesn't seem to be one for Grand
Champion since there's no Meat move opportunity (screen turning red)
when you're fighting as this fighter.  (See Section 10 on how to use a
special cheat code to activate these fighters.)  I would appreciate
e-mail from anyone who figures out these moves.


9.4.2 The Flambe'
-----------------
Would you like to cook your MEAT?!  This is called the Flambe' move and
will flame broil your bloody opponent right after an Overkill!  (You
must successfully execute a Meat move to do the Flambe' move.)  The
Flambe' move is easy to do!  Execute the move sequence for the Flambe'
while your fighter is performing the Meat move on the screen (or
sometimes right at the very end of the Meat sequence).  If the move
doesn't seem to work, quickly do the move sequence again.

Here's the list of Flambe' moves for each of the 11 fighters.  Unknown
move executions are shown with a "??".

       Mouth     - A,T,A
       Nick      - A,T,A
       Toad      - A,T,A
       Bat       - ??
       Spike     - A,T,A
       Worm      - A,T,A
       Squid     - A,T,A
       Selena    - A,T,A
       Parasite  - ??
       Champion  - ??
       Grand
        Champion - NA


9.4.3 Resurrections
-------------------
Whenever your fighter gets killed (no health left), you can bring your
fighter back to life if you quickly execute the Resurrection move.  Your
fighter will jump back up and have a small amount of health left so you
can continue on with the fight.  You'll find this "cheat" feature is
very handy in getting through some of the tougher fights in Story mode,
especially since you can use the Resurrection move multiple times in the
same fighting round!

Here's the list of Resurrection moves for each of the 11 fighters.
Unknown move executions are shown with a "??".

       Mouth      - Clockwise on the directional keys
       Nick       - Clockwise on the directional keys
       Toad       - ??
       Bat        - Clockwise on the directional keys
       Spike      - Clockwise on the directional keys
       Worm       - ??
       Squid      - ??

         Champion - ??


9.4.4 Post-Mortem Humiliations
------------------------------
Post-Mortem Humiliations is an option that most sadistic players like to
leave on.  When this is on, you can continue beating on the other dead
fighter for a short period of time after a round is over and keep
racking up points.  As the old saying goes, "Kick them when they're
down!". :)


9.5 Moves by Fighter
--------------------
Here's the list of moves I have found for each fighter.  Unknown move
executions are shown with a "??".


MOUTH:    Ball Throw:  A,DA,D-Punch (In other words, hit Away

                               hit the Away directional key and hit the
                               Strong Punch key, which gets the other

9.7 Strategy stuff
------------------
Here's some playing tips you may find useful:

  * It is important to remember that the strong punches and kicks can
    cause more damage at a farther range, but these moves are SLOWER.
    Conversely, the weak punches and kicks cause less damage at a
    shorter range, but these moves are much QUICKER.  Practice both
    types of moves and execute them when most appropriate.  Sometimes
    using a combination of both types can be more effective too.

  * It is very hard to remember to block while fighting.  However,
    blocking is one of the more important moves if you are going to stay
    alive.  If someone is trying to constantly beat on you, try blocking
    and then using a quick weak punch or kick.

  * Many of the opposing fighters will try to throw things at you from a
    far distance.  Remember that most times you can jump over what is
    being thrown.

  * Worm and Mouth can crouch down and avoid many of the objects being
    thrown by the other opponents (except Spike's low goo).  This holds
    true too of Toad's Fast Attack.....Toad will just go flying by
    without touching them.

  * Learn to do the Resurrection move!  This move will help you win a
    few fights where you would normally end up dead.

  * I fully recommend playing XENOPHAGE with a 4-button gamepad or
    joystick.  It's much easier and quicker to learn and execute most of
    the moves.

  * Make full use of Training and Free Play modes to practice the moves.
    Remember that the Player Options screen for these modes has a wide
    range of options that you can fine-tune so that you can practice and
    better your moves.

  * Practice.  Practice.  Practice.  And then, practice some more!! :)

10 Secret Codes!
----------------
Here's a bunch to try out.  These are the only ones that I know about, but
there's probably some more.

This first table lists the cheat codes, which game version that they are
available in (S=Shareware, R=Registered), and how to activate them.
BTW, the codes that you type in the Fight screen last for the current
fight only.  You have to retype them for each new fight.  Also, you can
deactivate these codes by simply retyping them.

                Game
  Cheat Code    Version   How to Enable
  -----------   -------   -------------------------------------------
  BISHOP        S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  BLARNEY         R       XPR.INI file change
  BLOOD         S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  CHAMPS          R       Type in Menu Screen or Player Select Screen
  GLASSJAW      S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  HELIUM        S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  INVISIBLE     S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  ORCHID          R       Type in Fight Screen
  SHADOWS       S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  STAIN         S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  THOUGHTJINX   S,R       Type in Fight Screen
  XACMAN          R       Type in Menu Screen


This next table lists the cheat code, what it does, and any additional
information about the code you might find useful:

  Cheat Code    What It Does & Comments
  -----------   --------------------------------------------------------
  BISHOP        The announcer says in a very deep voice, "YOU SUCK!".

  BLARNEY       You get to fight the secret fighter, Blarney!!

                The booklet that comes with the registered version
                states that the BLARNEY cheat code is activated by
                typing it in during any menu screen. I think this is a
                bunch of blarney!!  Sorry, I couldn't resist! ;)

                To activate Blarney, you need to edit the XPR.INI file
                with a text editor.  BE SURE TO BACK UP THE XPR.INI FILE
                BEFORE YOU DO THIS!  (Take a look at Section 11 for some
                more fun stuff you can change in this file!)  Below the
                [Xenophage] heading up at the top, change the value for
                Player2 to equal Blarney ("Player2=Blarney").

                Run the game and select Free Play mode, and you'll see
                that Blarney now is the name for Fighter 2.  Look in the
                Choose Player 2 Menu option, and you'll see a cute
                picture of Blarney in the cast of characters!  Go into a
                Free Play game and fight a round or two with Blarney.
                Watch the massive buckets of blood fly off Blarney and
                stain the ground....dead dino meat!!! :)

                BTW, you can change Player1 to Blarney and play as the
                deadly dinosaur, but it's not much fun and the game gets
                a little buggy!

                And you can change the XPS.INI file in the shareware
                version too, but all you'll get is a picture of Blarney
                in the Player Selection screen.  If you try to go into a
                Free Play fight with Blarney, you'll be thrown to DOS
                with an error message.

  BLOOD         You like lots of blood?  Use this one to increase the
                blood that flies off each of the fighters.

  CHAMPS        This is the one you want!  You can select any one of the
                3 Boss fighters, Parasite, Champion, or the Grand
                Champion, in the Choose Player screens!  You can now
                practice fighting the Bosses in Free Play mode.  Or if
                you like, practice being a Boss in Training and Free
                Play modes, and then whip their counterparts in Story
                Mode!

  GLASSJAW      The booklet that comes with the registered XENOPHAGE
                game says that activating this code will stun your
                opponent after each punch or kick.  Well be careful with
                this one.  It'll stun YOUR fighter if punched/kicked as
                well!  And if you hit your opponent again while stunned,
                this second hit will make the fighter active again
                instead of doing the stun effect.

  HELIUM        This makes the fighters jump higher and come down to the
                ground a little slower.  This one makes you feel like
                you're fighting on a lower gravity planet.  It's a nice
                code to use to change the pace and gameplay of the
                fights.

  INVISIBLE     Both fighters become completely invisible!

  ORCHID        This one only works with Selena on the screen.  She
                stiffens and sorta blossoms and grows! ;)  Try it with 2
                Selenas on the screen at the same time for a really nice
                effect!!

  SHADOWS       The bodies of both fighters disappear from the screen
                and all you can see is their shadows.

  STAIN         The blood that flies off the fighters stains the ground.
                If you love blood, use this one with the BLOOD code.

  THOUGHTJINX   Both fighters fall down and die!  The fighters will
                continue falling down and dying (with a match TIE) until
                you type in the code again.

  XACMAN        Type this code in when the Main Menu (or other menu) is
                on the screen.  As soon as you do, another menu option
                will show on the Main Menu screen that says, "Play
                XacMan!".  WOW!  A mini-game you can actually play
                within XENOPHAGE!  I bet you can't guess which game this
                is similar to!

11 Trivia & Fun Stuff
---------------------
There's more meat to this section in this version of the FAQ.  Check out
some little known stuff about XENOPHAGE and some fun things you can
fiddle with:

  * During the development of XENOPHAGE, some of the fighters had
    different names.  Did you know that Worm was called Jack, and that
    Parasite was called Pinwheel?

  * Watch the larvae in Spike's environment carefully.  Some of them
    crawl over and jump into the bubbling goo pool, while some of the
    others head off toward the edge of the cliff and jump off.  You can
    move your fighter over the worms before they jump and actually
    squish them!  Splat!  But for some reason, the yellow Spike can't
    harm the yellow ones and the blue Spike can't touch the blue ones!!

  * XENOPHAGE has a file with all your configuration settings.  The
    shareware file is called XPS.INI and the registered file is called
    XPR.INI.  Using a text editor, try changing the following settings
    and watch what happens!  MAKE A COPY OF THE FILE BEFORE YOU DO THIS!
    If for some reason you mess up this file beyond recognition, there's
    a copy of your original file in the XENOPHAGE directory called
    XPSORIG.INI (shareware) or XPRORIG.INI (registered).

      > Look under the [Display] section and change BloodVolume to
        499998.  This will give you buckets of blood (even more than the
        BLOOD code) when the fighters are hitting each other!

      > Look in the [FPPlayer1] and [FPPlayer2] sections for "Type =".
        Set the value for both to 2 (joystick).  Now when you play in
        Free Play mode, you can do some "shadow boxing".  Every time
        your fighter throws a punch or kick, the other fighter will do
        the same.  (You won't control the directional movement of the
        other fighter, just the punching and kicking.)

        Here's a fun one to try with the same parameters!  Try also
        setting the "Type =" values for both to 4 (computer). You can
        now watch the fighters duel it out in Free Play mode without you
        doing a thing, just like the demo!  You can also change the
        options in the Player Options screen (don't change "Player
        Type"!), options like Cunning, Strength, Speed, Health, etc., so
        that the computer fighters will act differently in your Free
        Play "demo".  And try testing some of the cheat codes mentioned
        in Section 10 while the demo is playing too!

      > Look under the [Match] section for "OverkillZone=".  Change the
        value of this parameter to equal 1000000.  Now just one punch or
        kick will almost kill your fighter or the opponent in the match
        round!  What changing this paramater does is allow a larger or
        smaller health range for Overkills (or Meat moves).  Normally,
        you have to get your opponent's health way down before the
        screen will flash red and you can execute a meat move.  When you
        increase this parameter, you decrease the amount your opponent's
        health has to fall before you are in the "Meat Move Zone".

      > Look under the [Match] section for "Gravity=".  Change the value
        of this parameter to a low of 1 for little gravity or up to
        around 100 for heavy gravity.  This setting affects the height
        and speed of the jumps done by both your fighter and the
        opponent.  Try setting this parameter to 8 and you'll have fun
        with your fighters flying across the screen.  The special cheat
        code HELIUM mentioned in Section 10 temporarily lowers this
        value so that the fighters jump higher and come down slower than
        normal.

      > Look under the [ApogeeSound] section for "Rate=".  Based on your
        type of sound card, you might be able to change this parameter
        to get improved sound quality.  Try setting it first to 22000
        and see if you notice any difference.

He also took the time to play with some of the XPR.INI settings for most
of the Fun Stuff you see in Section 11.  Thanks Rich!  I couldn't have
gotten this latest FAQ update out so quickly without all your help.

Mark Forsman (Almighty Ruler) for reminding me about the BLOOD code.
Thanks Mark!
