Rise of the Dragon
What do I do with my Vid-Phone?
Check all of your messages on the Vid-Phone. This will allow you
to travel to many of the areas in the game. The first message is
from Mayor Vincenzi. After playing back that message, a picture
will scroll off of the printer. You will need this picture later,
so be sure to take it.
What should I pick up in my apartment?
Get your clothes, trench-coat, bullet magazine, and gun, which
is under the pillow, and wire tester from the bedroom. From the
bathroom, you will need the NaPent and first aid kit.

apartment without any clothes on. You will need to put your
clothes and trench-coat on to avoid this.
Karyn just yells at me! What should I do?
Show Karyn that you are sorry for standing her up last
night. You should purchase a dozen roses from the flower vendor
in front of city hall. Use your ID card to pay for the roses.
Apologise to Karyn, and give her the roses. When she offers to
make a date for tonight, take her up on it! Later in the game,
you must make a decision to go and meet her at 7:30, or stand
her up. If you stand her up, the game is over. If you have tried
to pick up on any other girl or prostitute earlier in the game,
you will be unable to continue. Karyn's help is crucial to
completion of the game.
How do I deal with Jenni?
Reject all of Jenni's advances toward you. If you don't you
could lose Karyn, your key source of information. Jenni will let
you in to see the mayor only if you have the MTZ tape and yell at

Yell at Jenni. Tell her that it is very important that you get
in to see the mayor. You can only do this after you have obtained
the MTZ tape from Karyn.

Threaten him, but not to the point of anger. Try the following
sequence: 3, 2, 2.

this area of the screen, it should change to an EXIT icon. This
alley is the way to the warehouse.
How will the old man help me?
The old man will tell you about the future, and your purpose. When
he gives you time to speak, tell him you have something for him
to look at. Show him the scroll with the Chinese calligraphy
on it that you found at Chen Lu's apartment. He will
translate it for you, and tell you about the reservoir strike.
How can I delay Deng Hwang's plans to take over LA?

How do I get past the bouncers?
Check all of your weapons with Martha, the person at the window.
You will not be able to pass unless you do.
How do I keep from losing my weapon?
When Slen asks if you have anything else for them, give him
the candy bar. After giving him the candy bar, he will give you a
claim check for your weapon. This is only necessary the first time
you check in a weapon.
Who can I speak to in here?
You can speak to only 1 person in the card room, 1 person in the
room with the dancer and stairs, and 4 people in the bar. The
people in the bar are the only ones that can help you.
Where is "The Jake"?
The Jake is the small guy in the back of the bar wearing green.
You will want to go easy on The Jake, since he is your primary
source of hints and addresses.

the picture from your Vid-Phone that the mayor sent you. This will
get his attention.

When The Jake begins to talk, he will mention a character by the
name of Chen Lu. You have the option here to ask about Chen Lu.

of him. Ask him if he thinks Chandra would want him covering for
Chen Lu. The Jake will then give you the address.

time. This is crucial, or he will not warn you about the strikes
later in the game.

The police have already started on their way to the apartment. You
will need to get in, get Chen Lu's ID card from his Vid-Phone,
and come back later. If you spend too much time in Chen Lu's
apartment, the police will catch you there.
What should I get from Chen Lu's?
Get Chen Lu's ID card, the drug patch from the bathroom sink
counter, and the scroll from Chen Lu's safe in his bedroom.
What should I do with the drug patch?
Give the drug patch to Karyn for her to work on. She will have it
analysed for you, and give you the MTZ tape which you can use to
bribe the mayor.

Use a bomb to blow open the case. Drop a bomb on top of the
lock and stand back.
How do I tap Johnny Qwong's Vid-Phone line?
Use your wire tester. Attach the red alligator clip to the
left battery terminal at the top of the screen. Next, attach the
blue clip to the grounding strap wrapped around the conduit near
the bottom of the screen. Lastly, take the yellow clip and clip
it onto the second terminal up from the bottom of the lower
termination block. This is a very difficult sequence, and will
require much practice. Save your game often!
I am continually being shocked to death at the terminal. Help!
Hook up the alligator clips to the terminals correctly. If the
clip is close to any terminal other than the one you want to drop
it on, you will be shocked. Be extremely precise on where you drop
the clips on the screen.
The sewer rats keep killing me!
The sewer rats are on a timer. If you hurry, you won't see them.
If you spend a considerable amount of time in the sewer, they will

Show the old man at the warehouse the scroll that you obtained
from Chen Lu's. When he translates it for you and tells you about
the strike at the reservoir, the reservoir will show up.

I'm running out of time!
If you haven't blown up the power panel next to the warehouse you
will not have enough time. Blowing up the power panel gives you
two additional days that you need.
How can I defeat the guards at the reservoir?
Be sure to wear the bullet proof vest. Avoid getting shot as much
as possible. You can be shot a few times if you are wearing
the bullet proof vest, but eventually you will die. If you have
the rifle from the armoury, this will also increase your chances
of winning this sequence.

into an EXIT icon. Click on that icon, and you should be able to
enter the car.

Deng Hwang's. As soon as you wipe out the guards at the reservoir,

Once you get the message from Deng Hwang on your Vid-Phone at
home, you will then be able to travel to Deng Hwang's factory.

on the roof, bypassing the first level of security. You can also
show Snake's ID card to the guard at the gate if you travelled
there by Emm-Way.
How can I get past the receptionist?
Lie to the her. Try telling her that you remember her from
high school, and that you would like to go out with her. Then
tell her that her boss is in trouble, and you are there to help.
If all else fails, use NaPent on her.
I'm baffled by security room control panel!
Manually override the security system. There are many ways to do
this. One way is to use the colour sequence found in the
fortune cookie. Press button [I] (one) then use the sequence.
You can also find a secret code in the game documentation. If
you find this code, you will be able to use button [II]
(two), and the correct sequence of colours.
How do I figure out the manual override code?
Open the fortune cookie given to you by the old man on the
crate. Follow the letter abbreviations for the colour codes.
How do I prevent the guards from killing me?
If you forgot to lock the guard break room when you were at the
control panel, you will need to do so. If you did and they find
you anyway, you wasted time somewhere. After you leave the
control room, complete everything as quickly as possible.
Eventually, if you are not quick enough, they will find you.
The receptionist comes to her senses and resets the security
system. What should I do?
Once she resets the security system, do everything at lightning
speed. It is only a matter of time before the guards track you
What should I do in the Janitor's closet?
Get some wire. Open both circuit breaker boxes, turn off the main
on top, then disassemble the smaller gang switches below. Use the
screwdriver on the sink in order to do this. After the switch
panel has been removed, grab a handful of wires and put it in

Take the wires you got from the janitor's closet and lay them
across Karyn. Move to the close-up view of Karyn, and unplug each
of the 3 wires connected to the neck strap. Note the countdown
time on the screen behind her. Save her before the timer

awhile. You will learn when it is safe to crawl under them after
learning the pattern.

want to skip the arcade sequence. If you choose to skip it,
program control will take over and show you the ending story
panels of the game.
