Instructions - Cops and Robbers Chess

'    Cops and Robbers Chess
' By Kevin Scott and Larry Scott
' (C) 2005 Outland Quest Software
' The First National Bank has just
' been robbed! The gang of robbers
' have fled to the roof pursued by
' a group of cops. Now the showdown
' has begun as cops and robbers
' struggle to get the upper hand
' on their opponents.
' Cops and Robbers Chess is a two
' player strategy chess type game
' in which you use pushing and
' strategy techniques to remove
' your opponent from off the roof.
' Whoever has the last pieces
' standing  wins, however a
' stalemate is also possible.
' Each player has two moves per turn.
' The possible moves are as follows:
' 1) A player may move to an adjoining
'    empty square either directly
'    above, below, left, or right.
' 2) A player may PUSH another piece
'    that is above, below, left, or
'    right of their piece. The piece
'    that is pushed will move a
'    maximum of FOUR squares in the
'    direction pushed.
'    Either another piece or a cloud
'    will stop their movement before
'    a fall will occur.
'    The piece that is doing the
'    pushing is repelled back ONE
'    space in the opposite direction.
'    This piece also will not move if
'    blocked by another piece or a
'    cloud.
' 3) A piece that is standing on one
'    of the four exhaust fans can
'    activate the fan by clicking on
'    the RED area of the square. This
'    will propel the piece in the air.
'    By using the joystick or arrow
'    keys, he can control to a LIMITED
'    extent where his piece will land.
'    If he lands on another piece he
'    will remove that piece from the
'    game. Care should be taken when
'    using these fans as the piece
'    may itself fall either off the
'    building or into the skylight.
'    Since this is such a strong move
'    it is only allowed ONCE per turn.
' 4) A piece can activate a lightning
'    bolt if a piece is standing on
'    the square directly next to the
'    cloud. By clicking on the white
'    cloud, the cloud will emit a bolt
'    lightning removing the piece
'    that is hit.
' JOYSTICK and KEYBOARD assignments.
' Because of the nature of some of the
' elements of this game, the mouse is
' not used. Movement and actions are
