is a two player game in which you must race your opponent to eat as
many apples in the maze as you can. By getting to the part of the
maze where there are more apples before your opponent you can get a
winning score. The player with the highest score after the chosen
number of rounds is the winner.
TYPING IT IN
DISK USERS should type in Listings 1 and 2 separately, check them
with TYPO 3, and then SAVE them to disk. You can use any filename
for the first listing but listing 2 must be saved as 'D:GREEDY2'.
Running the first listing will then automatically run listing 2.
There is no need for you to type in listing 3.
CASSETTE USERS should type in Listing 3 FIRST and,
after checking it with TYPO 3, save it to tape using SAVE 'C:'.
Leave the tape in position so that listings 1 & 2 can be saved
immediately following listing 1. Listing 1 should then be typed in
and CSAVED to tape immediately following listing 3. Leave the tape
in position and type in listing 2 then CSAVE it immediately after
listing 1. Rewind the tape and type RUN 'C:' and the program will
load and run automatically.
PLAYING THE GAME
You must firstly plug two joysticks in ports 1 and
two of your computer and then run your version of the program as
stated. After the first program has loaded you will be presented
with a title screen as the second part of the program is loaded.
When Billy and Benny, the two caterpillars, appear you may select
the number of screens to play by using the OPTION key. Pressing
START will begin play.
The object is to race your caterpillar round the maze
to beat your opponent to the apples. Fifty apples will fall randomly
into the maze and you will score points for each apple eaten. The
points will increase on each screen. Once you have completed the
selected number of screens the player with the highest score will be
declared the winner.
That's all there is to it, but it is fun!
