Basic Information ================================ ESRB Rating: Teen (Animated Blood & Animated Violence) Genre: Action Released: 11/23/1999 Developer: Toka Publisher: Red Orb Entertainment Players: 1 Platform: Dreamcast Net Support: No Peripherals: Visual Memory Unit, Controller ================================ 3. Story ================================ Soul Fighter: The Curse Of Gomar -At the age of 25, King Valmek, well-loved ruler of Gomar, wed a princess from the northern frontier of his kingdom. in time, his beautiful Queen Antea bears him two sons, Sedan and Felies. -All is well in the Kingdom of Gomar, until the day a royal hunt is organized to celebrate the birthday of Sedan, Valmek's eldest son. During the days' events, Sedan is found at the bottom of a cliff, having fallen to his death. The Curse of Gomar begins... -Overcome with grief, Antea and Felies are prepared to try anything to bring Sedan back to life. In their desperation, they turn to the forces of evil in the ill-founded belief that they can defy death. During the struggle to stop Antea and Felies as they muster the powers of Darkness, Valmek's Chief Swordsman is slain by Felies. His son, Altus, can only watch helplessly. -Horrified by their madness and in profound despair, Valmek banishes Antea and Felies from Gomar, sending his Royal spy Sayomi to follow them and discover any knowledge of their fate. -Sayomi's efforts reveal that Antea and Felies have pledged their eternal allegiance to each other and, using their ill-gotten powers of Evil, Antea has become capable of dissolving into a mist that transforms men into beasts and monsters, while Felies has turned into a monstrous dragon to assail the kingdom of Gomar. Sayomi warns the King of her dark news from her place of observation. As Antea turns the might of her power against the kingdom, Gomar's Chief Wizard, Orion, battles to save Altus and Sayomi from the onslaught, but cannot save Valmek from his doom. -The kingdom's salvation now lies in the hands of Orion who explains to Altus and Sayomi that the only way to reverse the curse upon the kingdom to capture the souls of those under Antea's spell in a magic phial and return to where it all began. Let the search for souls begin... ================================ 4. Characters ================================ -Whichever Hero you choose, their goal is the same. Those humans who have been transformed into animals must be defeated in order for their souls to be released from the powers of Evil. Once released, the souls are automatically captured into a magic phial. -Only when all the enemies have been defeated on each level and all of the souls recaptured can the player take on the mighty beasts that guard entry to the next stage and, ultimately, to the final showdown with Antea and Felies in his draconian form. -Only by conquering the dark powers can the Curse of Gomar be lifted, and the souls of the hero's kinsmen find their eternal peace. --------- - ALTUS - --------- Story: -Altus is the son of King Valmek's chief swordsman, Melkior. Melkior was slain by Felies in his madness as the Powers of Darkness were evoked and the Curse of Gomar descended on the kingdom. Trained in the arts of Warfare from an early age, Altus was already a master of the sword when his father was killed, but could only watch, held in thrall by the powers of Evil, while the deed was committed. Since the day that Antea and Felies was banished, Altus has sworn to avenge the death of his father, abandoning other studies to perfect his sword- fighting skills and prepare for the Day of Reckoning when the two Accursed Royals would be brought to justice. -Though Altus is not the fastest fighter on two legs, learning to control his brute, strength and combat techniques with the sword should stand you in good stead against the evil minions as you fight to save their souls. --------- - ORION - --------- Story: -When Antea and Felies made their initial onslaught against the Kingdom of Gomar, only the magical skills of Orion proved successful in halting their advance. The powers of Evil have since regrouped and enlarged their army...while the warrior characteristics of Altus and Sayomi may be better suited to out and out combat, Orion alone possesses the power to finally lift the curse from the kingdom and destroy it to its previous state. -Though not skilled in the arts of swordsplay like Altus, nor swift like Sayomi, his magic staff is a lethal weapon when used properly. Use the magical firebolts to cut through the enemy when they attach in swarms. Remember, as with all of the main characters' weapons, to be careful not to run out of weapon- energy in the middle of the melee, or you may not live to tell the tale. ---------- - SAYOMI - ---------- Story: -As a trusted servant of King Valmek, Sayomi was chosen to spy upon Queen Antea and her son Felies after their banishment from the Kingdom of Gomar. Renowned for her swiftness of foot and cunning in hand-to-hand fighting, Sayomi proved more than a match for the enemies she encountered during her mission to discover the fate of the Accursed Royals. -It was Sayomi who warned the Kingdom of the return of Antea and Felies and would have been transformed into an animal herself by Antea's evil mist Saved from the initial onslaught of the dark powers by the skills of the Wizard, Orion. Soyomi acts as the perfect counterpart to the brute force of Altus - swift where he is slow and cunning where he is apt to be ruled by anger as he runs to meet danger head-on. ================================ 5. Enemies ================================ ---------- Gargant ---------- Again, no weapons here, but these gorilla-like creatures are notoriously difficult to defeat, but to their sheer physical presence. The fact that they usually attack in numbers adds further to your problems. ---------- Hiski ---------- Like the real animal, these hyena-like creatures are fast and cunning. Extremely skilled with the short sword, be careful not to turn your back on the hyena, or you may find yourself literally stabbed in the back. ---------- Kalus ---------- So far you've only met opponents on the ground, so be prepared to look up once in a while as well. Flying in from above, raven-like creatures will try to kick you to the floor using their taloned feet, as well as beat you with their mighty wings. ---------- Klauticus ---------- Carrying no weapons, these tiger-like creatures can be perceived as an easy target. Do not be misled. Their claws have mutated into razorsharp killing machines, designed to inflict maximum damage on contact. ---------- MechMouss ---------- Half mouse-half robot, do not be taken in by the minute size of this robotic freak's head. What it may lack in intelligence is more than made up for by the sheer bulk of its body and the lethal nature of its electronic discharges. Be warned. ---------- Miscus ---------- The most frightening of the aerial enemies, equipped with razor-sharp claws and incredible strong wings. These bat- like creatures are also capable of spitting firebolts from a distance, so evasive measures are essential to defend against them. ---------- Morticus ---------- Both the zombie monsters and the Frankenstein-type monsters have incredible strength and will knock you to the floor with a single blow. Beware of the vicious headbutts and foul, biting attack in close combat. ---------- Mutabuzk ---------- Like the ravens, these fly-like creatures will attack from above, but not only with vicious claws and feet. Stand back from them and they will spit vile, green and exceptionally damaging mucous at you. Avoid at all costs. ---------- Orgks ---------- Though renowned for their supposed intelligence in real-life, there is nothing too smart about these pig-like creatures. Armed with vicious, spiked clubs, all they want to do is shed your blood at the earliest opportunity. ---------- Paguos ---------- Well-known for their deviousness, these rat-like creatures are heavily armed with long range crossbows, though are not as effective in close melee. Try to get in close as quickly as possible to attack them. ---------- Raymus ---------- Obstinate, stubborn and always ready for a fight, the ram-like creatures are armed with double-headed Fugil Sticks that are difficult to get past in close combat. Be sure to line up some combo attacks to defeat them. ---------- Rhinotor ---------- Don't be fooled by the lack of weapons here. The rhino-like creature is a formidable foe, not least for his sheer size and physical prowess. One blow from those mighty paws could spell the end of your days wandering. ---------- Scalous ---------- As they slither across the floor, these snake-like creatures are notoriously difficult to defend against. Be prepared to use your defensive skills as they make random strikes against you. ---------- Schingles ---------- Skilled in the arts of gladiatorial warfare, the skeletons may not be the strongest enemies you will come up against, but they will certainly slow your progress though each level. ---------- Slimnus ---------- Inhabiting the foul swamps of the outlands, these evil smelling lizard-like creatures will try to drag you down into their damp dwellings. Armed with ferocious, electrically charged tridents, one touch could sink you and the hopes of Gomar. ---------- Taytus ---------- One of the most dangerous adversaries, as these are the transformed bodies of the elite of Gomar's former noble warriors, trained in the use of the sword and equipped with the cunning of their new fox-like creature form. ---------- Valtus ---------- Most of Gomar's former sailing force has been transformed into these walrus-like sea-dwellers and, though not as quick, they can do untold damage with their short pirate swords when they attack en masse. ---------- Viscus ---------- Even more lethal than its normal counterpart, these white tiger- like creatures carry two short swords and is exceptionally skilled in their use. Again, long distance attacks are advised where possible. ---------- Volup ---------- Like the ravens, these vulture-like creatures will attack from above and, like its real-life counterpart, will usually join in a multiple enemy attack to pick you off when injured. Watch out for its clawed feet and wing combo attack. ---------- Zeenus ---------- Armed with two short daggers, the wolf-like creature is ideally equipped for close, hand-to-hand combat. Coupled with its enormous strength, the wolf should be taken out from afar when at all possible. ================================ 6.

Tips ================================ -Asleep/Awake: Some enemies may appear to be sleeping when you approach them. Be sure to attack those first, as they will be slower to react than those that are on ground. -Attack speed: Different enemies take different times to respond to attack. Work out which ones are the slowcoaches and plan your attacks to perfection to make the most of any brief breathing space. -Energy level: Like the main characters, each enemy has an energy level. When the player hits an enemy, each hit takes away a certain amount of energy (this can be seen on the top right of the screen). The enemy is dead when its energy level reaches zero. -Aggression level: Each enemy has a certain aggression level which increases when the player fires weapons at them in the 1st person view mode or attacks continually at close range. Be warned, an angry animal is a deadly animal. ================================ 11. Cheats / Codes ================================ -At the Soul Fighter logo screen, press Left + Y.
