I have to be honest here: The main reason I'm dedicating a "Manual Stimulation" post to this particular instruction manual is its last two pages.
Also, I'm pretty sure scans of this game's manual are fairly hard to come by in the English-speaking portion of the Internet.
That's not to say The Berlin Wall's instruction manual is a dud. Actually, it's quite nice thanks in large part to the adorable illustrations that pop up here and there.
Those illustrations are present on the front cover of this import-only Game Gear title's manual, unsurprisingly enough, but they're also present on its back cover, which I think is a nice change of pace.
They can be found on its first few pages (above), too, which help spruce things up a bit.
Strangely, illustrations aren't used to tell The Berlin Wall's backstory (above). Instead, in-game visuals are given that task.
The instruction manual's next few pages take players through The Berlin Wall's rules and mechanics, with a few drawings and screenshots placed here and there to keep things from getting boring.
The left-hand page below shows a few of the items that can be picked up while playing through this cute single-screen platformer. My favorite is the dragon-shaped one, which seemingly tosses a dragon costume onto the protagonist and allows him to give his hammer a rest and shoot fireballs at on-coming enemies instead.
Also, it should be noted that defeated enemies in The Berlin Wall change into the pieces of cake that can be seen on the right-hand page below.
A few more items are showcased and explained on the manual's following pair of pages.
And with that we come to the last two pages of The Berlin Wall's rather short instruction manual. These pages shine a light on the game's colorful boss characters. I'm especially fond of the crown-wearing eggplant (who, for some reason, is sleeping in the illustration that appears on the right-hand page), of course.
