Instructions - Goldrush


     The  purpose of the game (apart from driving you mad) is  to 
     retrieve all the bars of gold lying around.

     You do this by simply walking up to the stuff and picking it 
     up.  However,  a  guard  is after you to  prevent  you  from 
     achieving your aim.  His touch is deadly.  Your only defence 
     is  quick  thinking and your only weapon is a  never  ending 
     supply of bombs.

     Bombs can only be thrown down onto the floor either side  of 
     you. You can't throw bombs against walls, on glass, straight 
     down, whilst standing on ladders or at the guard. The effect 
     of the bombs is to create a temporary hole in the fabric  of 
     the floor.  The two reasons for doing such a thing are 1) To 
     try  and  tempt the guard to fall in to the hole and  2)  To 
     excavate down to lower levels so you can drop down a level.

     Control  of your Runner droid is by JOYSTICK in  the  normal 
     Joystick port.

     Control is as follows: LEFT = Move left  RIGHT = Move right
                              UP = Move up     DOWN = Move down


     or by MOUSE.  To drop bombs, hold down the LEFT BUTTON and 
     move the mouse left or right.

     or by KEYBOARD. CURSOR KEYS for movement & INSERT, CLR HOME 
     to drop bombs left and right.

     The Chase droid guard will look after himself.

     You  can  jump from a ladder but the guard  can't  and  only 
     you  can drop bombs.  On the other hand only you  will  fall 
     through the secret trapdoors...

     At  the  start of the game you are given the option  of  the 
     guard waiting for your move or else permanantly being  after 
     you.  I  would  suggest you take the much easier  option  of 
     MOTION   DETECTING  until  you  feel  you  need  the   extra
