WARNING: EPILEPSY AND SEIZURES READ
TING YOUR ARCADE LEGENDS
A few people may experience epileptic seizures when viewing flashing lights or
patterns in our daily environment. These persons may experience seizures
while watching TV pictures or playing video games. Players who have not had
any seizures may nonetheless have an undetected epileptic condition.
Consult your physician before playing video games if you have an epileptic
condition or experience any of the following symptoms while playing video
games: altered vision, eye or muscle twitching, other involuntary movements,
loss of awareness of your surroundings, mental confusion and/or convulsions.
This game is powered by four (4) AA (LR6) batteries.
• Using a screwdriver, loosen the screw until the battery compartment door
can be removed.
• Insert four (4) AA (LR6) batteries (we recommend alkaline) as indicated inside
the battery compartment.
• Replace the battery compartment door and tighten the scr
ew with a scr
driver. Do not over-tighten.
ADULT SUPERVISION IS RECOMMENDED WHEN CHANGING BATTERIES.
NOTE: To connect Sega Genesis directly to a TV, the TV must be equipped
with audio and video input jacks. They are commonly found on the front of the
TV near the contrast, color, and picture adjustment controls or on the rear of
the TV near the antenna and cable/satellite jacks.
If your TV does not have audio and video input jacks, you may connect Sega
Genesis through a VCR connected to your TV.

enabling him to build his doomsday machine! He’s grabbed control of every-
thing except the 7 Chaos Emeralds. These magnificent gems are believed to
hold exceptional powers and if he gets his hands on them, he could have the
