3- THE STORY:
The year is 2114, the place: Vegapolis.
Professor Hybrys, the genius behind all analytic conceptors, is the creator of
a brand new leisure axle wich has been driving crowds mad. The fabulous 1000
Kronurs bonus to the winner of TITAN attracts the wildest adventurers.
But the game is deadly and all have died somewhere along the 80 levels.
To succeed you must guide the power ball accross 80 immense and synthetic
worlds using just one magical and magnetic racket, whilst avoiding all manner
of death icons.
The ultra fast scrolling, the multi coloured graphics, the variety of gameplay,
and the sheer speed of the game have already caused mental breakdowns.
You have been warned !!
4- YOUR MISSION:
You must complete each of the 80 levels (16 in the amstrad cassette version)
either by eliminating all the bricks on the screen or by hitting the EXIT brick
with the ball.
At the start, you have to choose your player number (between 0 - 9). In
subsequent games by entering your number you will be able to start each new
game at the level you finished your previous game. Also by pulling down on the
joystick you can start at a lower level. (This option does not exist in the
You will lose a life if the racket hits a white skull or if the ball hits a
white or green skull.
If you move your racket over the ball, then the ball will move in the opposite
direction to that of the racket.
You can catch and freeze the ball by moving the racket over the ball. From this
position the ball will move in the opposite direction to that of your racket,
when you move your racket again.
The ball can go through red passage ways but not green ones.
The racket can go through green passage ways but not red ones.
One element has an extraordinary quality, namely the ENERGIZER (a brick with a
shaded blue E in its centre). If you move your racket over this brick then the
positions of the ball and the racket are reversed.
There are also solid indestructable bricks in certain levels and these can be
moved around the screen by your racket and used to cover entrances to skulls
Watch out for the blue oil spots, as your racket will become uncontrollable
until you make contact with the wall area.
There are some blocks with dots on them which you can pass through, however
each time you do so, they become darker until they become totaly solid. Once
this happens you are no longer able to pass through them and so you may find
yourself trapped in the wrong area of the screen!
Each eliminated brick will give you 100 points on the first stage, 200 points
on the second stage... 8000 points on the 80th stage.
A slowly dissapearing brick will only give you points once it has fully
dissapeared. (value being the same as around).
