The Manual Project

Started in 1999, the goal of The Manual Project is to scan as many US video game manuals as possible. Once scanned they are posted here so that everyone may read them. To date over 400 NES and SNES manuals have been scanned and posted, and the project is now expanded to include works from other sites. All manuals can be viewed online using your web browser, and downloadable manuals are available in both .vlm and .pdf format.
