There is no pointless, boring background story to this game. The 
aim is just healthy, meaningless destruction, though in this game 
it's not achieved by waggling the joystick in all directions and 
frantically pressing the firebutton. No, this is more like an 
aggressive version of Reagan's Star Wars. Carefully place your 
reflecting mirrors so that your laser-beam passes through all 
power-up crystals on the screen and then hits an appropriate 
target. The beam is allowed to intersect itself any number of 
times, but if it hits anything else than the crystals (or the 
target when all crystals are taken) it is bye bye energy and you 
have failed to complete the level. 

Acceptable targets are: the Earth, the Sun, the Devil, a nuclear
                        warhead and the center of a space-station   

The mirrors are controlled with the joystick, rotated with the 
firebutton and placed with SPACE. The mirrors can be guided 
through or placed over the crystals without harm, but are stopped 
or destroyed (depending on the menu-selection) when colliding 
with any other object. If you feel satisfied with your set-up
without having to use all mirrors, ESC proves a handy way of 
disposing the rest and thereby leaving room for the laser to 
move. The laser is controlled and fired using the joystick. 
Up/down on the stick moves the laser left or right by one step 
only, giving perfect control of the firing.

For further information about how to play the game please wait 
for the demo after the title- and credit-screens.

When a level is completed, the name of the following will be 
displayed on top of the screen while loading. Write this up 
because this will enable you to jump to this level whenever
you want to. There is 60 levels for you to complete, getting more 
and more difficult as you progress. If you find the first levels 
far too easy and boring you can commence the game at level 20 
where the medium-difficulty rated levels begin.

If you miss the target, or fail to collect all crystals you are 
given the option to retry with the same mirror setting so you 
don't have to put them all out again if you fire the laser badly. 
Of course, if you screwed it up completely you can also reset the 
mirrors and reposition them. 

This game is shareware. It may be copied freely by anyone and to 
anyone, but if you play it, enjoy it and decide to keep it you 
are obliged to send me some money (a sum of own choice but don't 
be too stingy.) If enough people show enough (financial) interest 
there will also be a "Galactic Playground Level Designer". Anyone 
who has sent registration money will then automatically receive a 
notice or a copy (depending on "how much") of that program and 
upgradings on this game.


Version 1.0

This is the first version of the game "Galactic Playground". I 
hope it will be well accepted. If you like original and thought-
stimulating games this one should appeal to you.

I do not believe in releasing first-versions full of bugs, so 
though there may be some minor "cosmetic" faults everything 
should be working perfectly. In this version however there is no 
sound to speak of, the irritating noise when the laser is fired is 
just an experimental by-product which I forgot to remove. Turn 
the sound off on the TV / monitor and instead put on your 
favorite record or something. I can't give you everything. Not 
at this moment anyway...

This version does not work on the STE. Sorry all you STE owners, 
change computer or wait for a working STE-version of the game. 
(Probably it won't come, but everything is possible...)

This game was created using STOS, STOS compiler and Neochrome 

Have fun!
