Welcome to Flying High in which you must help
Freddy explore rooms, burst balloons and find how to access the
'mystery box' in the centre of the screen.
Freddy is controlled by a joystick in port 0. He
can walk left or right and, by pushing the stick up, he can fly
upwards using the propeller on his hat. Conveyors may help him along
(or they may not!). The object is to make Freddy visit each section
of every screen at least once whilst trying to pop balloons and
avoid the 'Zapper'. Much of the challenge of the game is to work out
the correct route to reach all screens as some sections can only be
reached in a certain way.
Freddy starts out with five lives and loses one
each time he is touched by the Zapper. He gets an extra life when he
pops five and ten balloons but loses all lives if he runs out of
fuel. At least ten balloons must be popped during the game but it
does not matter if they are popped by Freddy or by the Zapper. Once
Freddy has popped ten balloons and visited every section of each
screen, he must find his way back to screen one to touch the object
in the 'mystery box'
Flying High is not a fast action game but will
take a while to puzzle out. Keep an eye on the status line at the
top of the screen which is updated whenever you enter a new room and
remember to keep Freddy flying high!
