*** Demon Attack (1 or 2 players) ***
Game Program Instructions
Marooned on the ice planet Krybor, you watch legions of eerie creatures
scream overhead. They hover ominously. They give you no quarter. Attack and
destroy them, or be destroyed! Armed with your Laser Cannon, you confront the
ultimate challenge: SURVIVE!
Destroy demons and accumulate points before you and your LASER CANNON meet
with oblivion. Keep RESERVE BUNKERS intact and increase their number by
avoiding your foes' fire. When the last bunker disintegrates, the next enemy
hit will pulverize you!
Your LASER CANNON has unlimited firing power.
Dodge left or right to avoid enemy fire while pursuing aliens.
Accumulate RESERVE BUNKERS (bottom left of screen). You begin with 3.
Each attack wave you survive completely unscathed earns you an additional
bunker, to a maximum of 6.
Every hit you absorb destroys an additional bunker.
When all bunkers disappear, another alien barrage will vaporize you.
Your JOYSTICK CONTROLLER allows you to manuver. Position controller so that
the RED FIRING BUTTON rests in the upper left-hand corner. To move the LASER
CANNON LEFT, push joystick LEFT; for RIGHT mobility, lean joystick RIGHT.
