Instructions - Down the Pipes

Have a little play and tell me what you think.
There are still loads of bugs to be sorted out and more stuff to be added. Although I'm now
working on a different game engine.

It's a simple platform type game where you are a piece of poo and you have to rescue all your
poo children.

Control is by the joystick, fire button to jump.
Extra keys you can use are..

1           no sound
2           chip music
3           samples
5           50hz refresh
6           60hz refresh
P           pause
O           re-start
C           complete game (cheat)
SPACEBAR    quit game

You have to pull all 5 switches to be able to get to the exit (pull down to activate) and you need
to rescue at least one baby.

You can also go down some pipes, the large vertical ones.

You can complete the game even though I haven't finished designing the level.

Watch out for spikes, toxic water, toxic spills and steam. If the timer flask fills up then it's game
over, there are some small bottles about that will give you extra time.

Let me know what's good and bad about the game so far, I know it's a bit slow and the collision
detection is a bit bad. What do you think of the graphics... good eh 8-).

Anyway hope to hear from you soon.
