I've uploaded the manual, and changed my external download link to a new archive that includes it.

This game can be beaten in 10 minutes starting from scratch. No kidding. Took me a few hours at first but once you finish it for the first time and know how to get to the end, you're the master. Never the less, there is still plenty to explore in this game. I have an original copy of this game and it's quite a rare gem. Interesting to see such a game originate from Japan.
