For those of you who
enjoy more sedate or traditional games or who would like a good
family game for up to four players, here is THE CHASE.
The game is based on
the popular board game of `Ludo' and each player has four counters
of one colour and must release them from 'Base' onto the starting
square of their own colour. The counters are then moved around the
play area to arrive at 'Home' (Headquarters). The first player to
move all his counters into Headquarters is the winner. As with Ludo,
if you land on a square which is already occupied by an opponent,
you capture that square and your opponent's counter must be returned
to Base. The game differs from Ludo in that only one counter can
occupy any square so that if you are unlucky enough to land on a
square already occupied by one of your own counters, you will
capture your own counter thus returning it to Base.
More detailed instructions are
included in the program and prompts are shown on screen throughout
the game. No joysticks are required.
