                    Arcade Fun for the Atari Falcon030

                          Hardware requirements:
                                VGA monitor
              ST-compatible joystick (not enhanced joystick)
                           hard disk recommended
               headphones or amplified speakers recommended

     I was tired of waiting for someone to come out with free game 
     software for the Falcon, so I took a stab at it myself. BLACK HOLE 
     is arcade-style entertainment that takes advantage of the 030's 
     superb graphics and sound. The program runs on a VGA monitor in 
     256-color 640 X 480 mode, and features over one megabyte of high-
     quality music and sound effects samples.

     The folder named HOLEDATA must be in the same directory as 
     BLACKHOL.PRG. Since the folder contains 1.3 megabytes of support 
     data, I recommend running BLACK HOLE from a hard disk in order to 
     reduce start-up time. The object of the game is to find the two 
     coins hidden on each level. Various items appear as you travel 
     across the screen. Move the cursor over them to increase your 
     score and playing time, but watch out: the higher your level is, 
     the shorter the Time Bomb fuses become. Press the joystick button 
     to escape the current level if you think you're about to blow up. 
     If you complete eight levels you win the game. Press the Falcon's 
     HELP key for more information.

     This version of BLACK HOLE uses 8-bit monaural audio samples in 
     order to keep the archive file to a reasonable size. My personal 
     version uses stereo 8-bit samples which I would be happy to 
     provide to anyone who is interested (the program is already 
     equipped to read both mono or stereo samples). Leave me Email if 
     you want more information.

     BLACK HOLE is public domain freeware. Give it away and pass it 
     around. The Falcon needs all the help it can get.
