--------------- Gravon - Real Virtuality --------------------------------
Gravon is 3D simulation of a battle hovercraft.
Main features are:
* Real 3D environment
* Highly realistic physical simulation
* Lighted polygons in 65536 colors with depth-cueing (accordingly to the
* Stereo-sound with 3D-effects.
* Enemies use artifical inteligence.
* Four different planet types
* Many thrilling missions
* A lot of original musicpðp„ˆ O„equired
Falcon030 with at least 4 MB RAM and 7 MB of free hard disk space.
Color monitor (RGB/VGA) required.
The game graphics is much faster on RGB monitor - this is because of
the way the Falcon handles True Color screens.
Good stereo amplyfier and repro-boxes are highly recommended.

About this demoversion
With this demoversion you can watch or play one of the missions of
the full version.
Use 'A' key to toggle autopilot/manual mode.
* Mouse and Joystick
The position of the rudder (indicated by the line in the center of
the screen) and gun targeting (indicated by cross-hair) is operated by
moving the mouse. The left button on the mouse is the laser fire-button.
The right button (or joystick fire-button) activates the aerodynamic
By pushing the joystick forward or backward (or pressing the '+' or
'-' keys) you increase or decrease the thrust of your driving propellers.
The thrust (indicated in the triangle graph) rises until it reaches the
desired level (the line below the triangle). You can also use the reverse
thrust - in this case the triangle indicator is red.
You can use PowerPad (Jaguar controller) plugged into the port A to
control Gravon. Use the 'Option' button to toggle brakes on/off.

The friction of the hovercraft is very weak. Therefore the effects of
inertia and gravity forces are very strong.
When driving, use thrust smoothly and remember that Gravon craft is
equipped with aerodynamic brakes. They should be used any time you want
to drive precisely (for example when moving nearby a solid object),
because they lower the effect of the inertia on your vehicle.
