A calm day begins in Seville. Mariano López goes to his job as sausage delivery man. Meanwhile, at Santiponce's interestratospheric devices centre, everybody is getting ready to the first fully spanish rocket launch, designed by famous Dr. Torrebruno, an eminent nuclear physicist who had to leave the project prematurely, due to a strange mental disease.
But nobody expected the rocket to suffer a sudden variation on its path, and falls right on the truck that Mariano López uses to transport a blood sausages cargo.
Mariano, unconscious, lies on the floor besides his sausages and the truck's wreckage, spread all around. Some hours later, he wakes up really hungry, and eats an entire box of the radiated blood sausages.
But... what the hell is happening!? Mariano is becoming different: Every muscle grows, he becomes taller, his ugly face becomes a pretty superhero's, Captain 'S', who discovers that everything was part of the evil Torrebruno's plan, with the true intention of ruling the World, starting by Seville.

When you represent Mariano in the game, your possibilities are only a few. Try to evade every enemy character... if they touch you, you will lose a life. Otherwise, use your punchs to defend yourself, and look everywhere for any sausage to transform into Captain 'S'.
However, some of your enemies won't attack you when you are under this appereance.
CAPTAIN 'S' 'S ACTIONS

Choose the superpower you need by pressing Select key. Besides those three superpowers, there are other three wich don't need to be previously selected:
: Press Fire key quickly while you are on air (e.g.: while jumping).
: You'll be able to jump giant leaps. Don't hesitate on using it. It's very useful.
: Whenever an enemy contacts you, you won't lose a life, just energy.
ADVICE FOR BEGINNERS
When you find a screen with two computers, use them until the Earth appears on their respective monitors. It will be useful.
When you find BRAVE BULL, the vicious bull, you will have to use SuperPuff to get him out of the screen. You will get a sausage.
Don't waste your sausages recklessly. Keep yourself as Mariano while you can, and you will reach much longer.
Be patient, and don't try to finish the game in just one day. It's hard, and requires much dedication.
DIFFERENCES WITH THE ORIGINAL GAME
As you know, this game is a remake of an original game by HiScore, released on 1.988 by the legendary software house Dinamic Software.
Apart from the graphic update, there are several things that we have changed, to give the game an actual look'n'feel, so it can satisfy actual gamers. Some of these changes are...
: Mariano's behavior during jumping is completly changed, allowing character's control while it's on air, and removing the bouncing that original game has whenever Mariano hits any obstacle.
: We tried to give more importance to each superpower, in order to make them more useful than in the original game.
: The original map for the second part was very short (specially when compared with the first part). We made it a bit longer, to balance both parts, and get a longer game itself.
: The game is full of references to classic games and cult movies. Try to find'em all!!!
And those are only the most important ones. The game has been completely adapted to current times, and tries to attract new players to great spanish classic games.
