SHAO LIN FAQ VERSION 1.0 Last updated 01/24/00 Author: Rook (email@example.com) >CONTENTS< 1. Introduction 2. Version History 3. Controls 4. Move List 5. Secrets(?) ====================================================== ====================================================== 1. INTRODUCTION: >Shao Lin is a nice game. It doesnt look as great as Tekken, nor does it have specials of Street Fighter, but it does add a few new elements in fighting games. Like fighting against "8" (including yourself) in a free-for-all, or the rpg elements of the story mode. One thing which was really missing is a move list in the pause menu (which is now a staple in all fighting games). This faq is for those who have the game and want to quick check the moves before fighting. ====================================================== ====================================================== 2.

Instead of having just one Qi Stance, you have four stances. The style also has the conventions of throws, multiple attacks, and sidesteps but it isnt listed on the movelist. Not only that, there seems to be some mix-ups about the attacks and the stances. I'll put up the corrections, after I go check them out.

I dont get to use the "Versus" mode much because I wanted to finish the Story mode first, so I didnt get to see the characters I unlocked. >Copyright © 1999-2000 Rook.
