The Great Giana Sisters:
One night, when little Giana from Milano was fast asleep, she has a
strange dream. Everybody dreams weird things at night, but no one will
have experienced situations like little Giana is about to.
Giana suddenly finds herself in a strange mysterious world, where
everything is completly different. Gravity has almost disappeared -
sometimes one feels like flying away - and everywhere there are
unxeplainable buildnings and structures. Old grottos and deserted
castles seem to hide lots of secrets, and frightening and hideous
creatures appear. This wouldn't be too bad, except that Giana can't
leave this world unless she finds the magic, huge diamond. So she
starts searching for this wonderful jewel.
However, she is not totally alone, for her little sister Maria can
STARTING THE GAME
To start dreaming, press LEFT or RIGHT for one or two players.
If the two player option has been chosen, Giana and Maria can play
by turns. The change ill be made everytime one of the sisters has
an expecially bad dream.
NOW WE'RE REALLY GETTING STARTED
Connect a joystick to the joystick port or to the STE port A.
The figure will follow your joystick movements and fire with the button.
If a Jaguar game pad is connected, control the left and right movement
with the d-pad, jump with B and fire with the C button.
The dreamworld is divided into 33 stages. Your task is to cross this
world unscathed, but you must find the magic diamond to be able to return.
You can walk and jump everywhere, but beware! Holes, beds of nails and fire
can be quite dangerous.
But the sisters can't try everything as many times as they'd like to.
If one of the sisters has five extremly bad dreams, Giana is condemned
to spend the rest of her life in the neighbourhood of crazy lobsters,
dancing eyes and neurotic appendices.
By collecting rectangular blue dreamcrystals the sisters can raise
their stamina (extra lives). 100 crystals are needed for each. On
their way, the to be, at first sight, quite useless. Perhaps you
should try to jump against these rocks from below, because more
crystals and bonus symbols are hidden there. These are extremly
important for further success, and can be collected simply by
