CHIVALRY IS NOT DEAD!
That nasty old troll, Ollie Ogre, is at it again. He's chasing
poor Daisy Damsel all across the neighborhood! So what are you
waiting for, hero? Get out there and stop him! You have the
blueprint (plans) for the only contraption that can knock him
off. All you need now are the parts with which to build it and
they're hidden in the houses of the neighborhood. What you don't
need are the bombs you may pick up and encounters with fiendish
Fuzzy Wuzzy! But if you complete your contraption in time you'll
be able to stop Ollie and save Daisy!
So get a move on already! Daisy's counting on you!
OBJECT OF THE GAME
The object of BLUEPRINT is to accumulate points by finding the
parts of your contraption hidden within each neighborhood and
successfully placing them in their proper positions on the
blueprint for the contraption. Once the contraption is built,
you can score bonus points by using it to stop the pursuit of
Daisy Damsel by Ollie Ogre.
In BLUEPRINT, you play the part of our gallant hero. You begin
each game with five lives. The number of hero silhouettes at the
top of the screen indicate how many lives you have left in
Use the joystick to enter each neighborhood and to move from
house to house. As you search for parts to fit the blueprint, the
bottom buttons on the sides of your controller act as your speed
control. Once your completed contraption is activated, however,
these buttons become your triggering device, enabling you to
fire off a shot at mean old Ollie Ogre. The top buttons have no
function in this game.
You will be awarded one extra life if you score 20,000 points.
Your sweetheart, the fair Daisy Damsel, is being chased throughout
the game by that dastardly villain, ugly Ollie Ogre! If at any
time during the game Ollie catches up with Daisy, a distress
signal will sound. This is your cue telling you that you only have
a few seconds left to stop Ollie before he finally grabs Daisy!
NEIGHBORHOODS & HOUSES
Each neighborhood is made up of 10 houses, eight of which contain
the parts to your blueprint. The other two houses contain deadly
bombs. To progress to the next neighborhood and the next level
of play, you must find the missing parts, position them on the
blueprint in their proper positions and then use your completed
contraption to stop Ollie and save Daisy.
On Level 1, the neighborhood has three entranceways. On Level 2,
it has two. All others only have one entranceway. Furthermore,
neighborhoods increase in difficulty in the amount of time you have
to save Daisy and in the frequency and speed of the other dangers
COMPLETING YOUR CONTRAPTION
When you enter a house that contains a part of your contraption, a
short victory signal will sound and you'll score 1,000 points. Then,
use the joystick to maneuver the part out of the neighborhood and
onto the blueprint. Remember that the part must be placed in its
Should you enter a house that does not contain a part or if you
return to a house from which you've already taken one, you will
automatically pick up a bomb. A warning signal will sound indicating
that you have a limited amount of time to defuse the bomb before it
blows. To defuse a bomb, use the joystick to maneuver it to the Bomb
Pit. You must drop the bomb directly into the Pit! Once the bomb
has been defused, yoy may resume your search for the missing parts
as time permits. For every bomb successfully defused, you'll score
Note: If you are in possession of a contraption part and you enter
another house as you pass through the neighborhood, you will not
pick up a bomb.
Sneaky Pete is the neighborhood nerd who lives deep within the
Bomb Pit. Every now and then, he'll pop up on the surface to make
your life more miserable. If he gets a chance to press the "START"
button on the screen before you've completed your contraption,
he'll cause all the parts already in place to slip off the blueprint!
You can stop him by simply grabbing him and dropping him back into
the Bomb Pit. If he should wreck havoc upon your contraption,
you'll have to drop him into the Bomb Pit first, before you go about
putting the fallen parts back into place on the blueprint.
Dropping a bomb on Pete just before he jumps out of the Pit will
keep him in his place.
Starting on Level 3, Fuzzy Wuzzy, an explosive little fellow who
was once in love with Daisy, makes his appearance. Daisy never
returned his affections, of course, and, as result, Fuzzy now
wanders around the neighborhood getting in your way and making
your quest more difficult. If he should get hold of you, regardless
of whether you have a part, a bomb or are empty-handed, you'll
forfeit the life in play.
As Ollie continues to chase Daisy across the top of the screen,
he'll occasionally knock a Flower Pot off of the ledge. One blow
from these Flower Pots will prove fatal. Be especially careful of
them next to the blueprint. When they hit bottom, they grow feet
and bounce right toward you!
The moment you complete your contraption, a signal will sound
alerting you to the fact that it's time to save Daisy! Use the
joystick to maneuver yourself right on top of the "START" button
at the lower left corner of the screen. This will activate your
Now use the joystick to move your contraption back and forth
along the bottom of the screen. To fire a basketball at Ollie,
press one of the two bottom buttons on the sides of your
controller. Some basketballs might sputter out before you actually
manage to get one high enough to hit Ollie. Only one shot may be
fired at a time.
Have no fear; you cannot ever hit Daisy by accident. That would
be most unheroic.
If you hit Ollie, he'll be knocked out cold and you will have
saved your sweetheart! Bonus points will be scored and you'll
proceed to the next neighborhood with Ollie commencing his pursuit
of Daisy all over again.
If you miss Ollie, you'll have as many chances to hit him as time
LOSING A LIFE
When a life is lost, you will witness its ascent to its heavenly
reward. A life may be lost in any one of the following ways:
* In a bomb explosion.
* In an encounter with Fuzzy Wuzzy or a Flower Pot.
* When Ollie Ogre finally gets hold of Daisy Damsel.
Your next life will begin on the neighborhood already in progress.
All parts that had been successfully placed on the blueprint will
remain intact. Any part that may have been in transit when the
previous life was lost will be just where you left it. Sneaky Pete,
if he was about, will be back in his Pit. And, most importantly,
Ollie will begin chasing Daisy all over again.
Note: If you complete your contraption but fail to stop Ollie in
time, thereby losing a life, your new life will start on the level
in progress, but your contraption parts will have slipped off the
blueprint. You will have to put them back in their proper positions
and then press the "START" button again in order to reactivate
As you go from house to house searching for the missing parts, you
may use the bottom buttons on the sides of your controller to
increase your speed of movement. Hold one of the buttons in to
speed up; release to return to normal speed. This feature stays in
effect for each neighborhood untill you activate your completed
You have only a limited amount of this "Fast Run Time" to use per
life, per neighborhood. As you deplete your supply, the meter in
the lower left corner of your screen will gradually move from right
to left. Every time you locate a part to your contraption, your
speed supply will be slightly recharged.
END OF GAME
The game ends when you valiantly lose your last life in the noble
effort to save your sweetheart, Daisy Damsel, from the clutches
of Ollie Ogre.
Score is displayed at the top of the screen throughout the game.
Finding a Part to the 1,000 points
Defusing a Bomb 50 points
Knocking Off Ollie 500 to 2,500 points
distance from Daisy
Two players may compete in BLUEPRINT, alternating turns. Player
One uses the controller in jack 1 and his/her score appears on
the left side of the screen. Player Two uses the controller in
jack 2 and his/her score appears on the right side of the screen.
1. Save your speed supply for times when you'll really need it
like maneuvering through the houses on the upper blocks of the
neighborhood or when you unexpectedly pick up a bomb.
2. Once you pick up a part, you'll be able to avoid Fuzzy
Wuzzy by ducking into any nearby house. As long as you have
the part you won't be able to pick up anything else.
3. BLUEPRINT is, most of all, a memory game. Younger players (as
well as absent-minded ones) might find it easier to play as a
team. One member moves through the houses while the other member
keeps track of where they've already been.
