Loading Instructions:

To run the program:

1. If your BBC is fitted with a Disc or Econet Interface, 

return to the cassette filing system by typing:

*TAPE (press the Return key)

PAGE=&E00 (press the Return key)

2. CHAIN "" (press the Return key)

The program should then load into your computer and automatically run.

The Game.

The object of the game is to climb to the top of each level as quickly as possible while avoiding the hazards. There are four levels and if you complete all four you will go back to the first one but there will be some extra 'nasties'.

The game may either be controlled from a joystick using the fire button to jump or from the keyboard using:

Z        Left

X        Right

*        Up

?                Down

Return        Jump

You will be given an extra life the first time you complete level 3. Extra points will be awarded if you collect the heiress's belongings on the way up (handbag, umbrella, etc). It is possible to jump up and grab the hammers and then for a limited length of time you can smash the fire balls, barrels and bowls of custard. You can not climb ladders or jump gaps with the hammer. You must complete each level before your bonus runs out or you will die of exhaustion. Good luck. You will need it.

If you have problems:

When the program is loading into the computer (after you have entered *RUN, *LOAD, or CHAIN"") the message 'Searching' should appear on the screen followed by 'Loading' and the program name when the program is found. If the program name appears without the 'Loading' message or messages like 'Data?', 'Block' or 'Header?' appear, rewind the tape a short way and alter the volume level on the cassette recorder. If, after repeating this several times, the 'Loading' message still does not appear, try the second copy of the program on the cassette.

If, after trying the above, you are still unsuccessful or the program does not load very reliably, then return the cassette to us stating when and where you brought it, details about your computer (memory size, Operating System, any Interfaces fitted, etc) and which cassette recorder you have been using. These latter questions are important due to the frequent updating of the computer's specification.
