                      - THE FURTHER ADVENTURES -


Thank you for registering for  Double  Bobble  2000. We hope you enjoy
the new adventures of Dub and Dob, and don't forget to create your own
levels with the level editor. This game  and the editor are not public
domain and may not  be  copied,  they  are  for  the  sole  use of the
registered user. Level sets that you  create are public domain and can
be spread freely so don't forget to send us your levels!


o The Plot Thickens

With Darren Von Blubba defeated,  the  cave  of monster cleared of the
nasty beasties and Sub and Sob  rescued,  the future looked bright for
Dub and Dob. But this was not to be the end of the story....

Darren Von Blubba has friends in  high places. Very high places. Well,
in outer space (and you don't  get  much higher than that!). Zappy the
space invader had spent a long stint  on  earth in the early 80s being
shot  at  in  amusement  arcades  and  he  had  grown  to  loathe  all
inhabitants of that foul planet, apart from his mate Darren Von Blubba
who had employed some aliens in his sausage factory.

Zappy was devastated by the news about the assault on Darren's sausage
plant and vowed revenge on Dub and Dob. That night strange lights were
seen over the house of Sub and  Sob  and  when the town awoke the next
morning they found the two girls  were  missing.  Dub and Dob had seen
the lights and suspected they had been kidnapped by aliens.

Dub informed the local police of  his  suspicions, and just managed to
escape as the desk sergeant suggested  he  needed medical help and was
dialling the local psychiatric hospital.  Dub  and Dob knew they would
have to fight without outside help. They climbed aboard their BMXs and
set off in search of Zappy's planet and their abducted girlfriends.


( The game might  have  improved,  but  I  made  no promises about the
quality of the plot! )




o The Further Adventures Menu

If you have played Double Bobble  2000  you  will be familiar with the
menu layout of the further options. There is one new option:



o LOAD LEVELS

This allows you to load levels you have created with the Double Bobble
editor. You can only load level  sets  (created with the 'LINK LEVELS'
option in the editor), not individual  levels.  You can also load your
own background graphics, as long as they are in .GOD format.

[] LOAD LEVEL SET

Clicking on this brings up  a  file  selector. This isn't the standard
GEM file selector, but a custom one. Its  use is similar to GEM, it is
mouse controlled although you can also type in filenames. Click on the
blue cross to go back up  a  directory.  The  drive letters are on the
right and click either OK or CANCEL to exit the selector.

A level set is a  set  of  levels  created  and linked with the Double
Bobble editor. There is a maximum of 100 levels in a set. If there are
less than 100 levels then there will be  no end of level baddy and end
sequence.

If there are 100 levels, level 100  will be the end confrontation, the
screen where the massive  space  alien  zappy  appears.  Make sure the
level layout caters for his massive bulk ( 80*72 pixels ).

[] LOAD GRAPHICS SET 1

This load the first background tiles  page.  This must be in God-Paint
format and be a file of 320 x 240 or 320 x 200.


[] LOAD GRAPHICS SET 2

This load the second background tiles  page. This must be in God-Paint
format and be a file of 320 x 240 or 320 x 200.



o Gameplay

The gameplay is similar  to  standard  Double  Bobble. There have been
some bug fixes and timing changes but nothing major.

The Further Adventures is a harder game than Double Bobble. It is best
suited to the more experienced Double Bobble player, familiar with the
more complex techniques of bobbling. There are many secret features in
the level - hidden panels  and  passages,  so don't take everything at
face value.

We will be working on Double  Bobble+  which will contain some new and
exciting power ups, bonuses and some new secret features.



o Loading Problems

Double Bobble is now a seriously  large  program. If you have problems
loading it then  make  you  de-install  all  accessories  and resident
programs and run from a  low  memory  resolution  (e.g. ST Medium). If
there are still problems, use God-Load.



o We want YOU!

Don't forget if you create some interesting levels to send them to us!
We will be making some compilation  disks of Double Bobble adventures.
If you send us a SAE and a  disk you will be sent the latest adventure
compilation when it is released.
