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.

* PowerPad

   You can use PowerPad (Jaguar controller) plugged into the port A to 
control Gravon. Use the 'Option' button to toggle brakes on/off.

Driving basics

    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.
