"Usually, no matter how bad a game is, I can see some faction of the games playing world that would like it. For once though, I can think of nobody who would want to play such rubbish as this." (Read Full Review) ... Computer Gamer
Stamina, bravery and endurance are needed as you run, jump, balance, swing, climb and crawl around the 22 screens of the SAS Assault Course.
Playing The Game
Complete the assault course of 22 screens in the fastest time possible.
If you can complete the course, your performance and finishing time are displayed. The performance is a percentage score, based on your ability over the whole course.
Endurance will deplete slowly throughout the game.
Bravery will deplete with each fall.
Stamina will reduce if you try to make illegal moves (wrong icon selected).
Stamina and bravery can also go down if you make a number of falls on one screen. As this game is played in *real time*, a fall will also affect your finishing time.
After loading, you are presented with an options screen. The whole game uses special "icon control", so you will only need four control keys or a joystick to carry out many complicated moves.
The screen is split into two sections with the playing area at the bottom and the Selection and Status Icons at the top. The icons at the top are to select your movement. These are Jump, Up Ladder, Up Rope, Swing on Rope, Balance and Crawl. The next four icons show your current status (Screen, Stamina, Bravery and Endurance).
O - Left, P - Right, A - Select Icon, Q - Activate Icon
Or you may use a joystick if you prefer. Move up to select, and Fire to Activate Icon.
On the options screen:
O (or move joystick left) - Select handicap (1 = 20 second start, 2 = 10 second start, 3 = 0 second start)
P (or move joystick right) - Play/Instructions/Quit
Q (or fire) - activate selection
On Q (or fire) - Return to main menu
Press CTRL and the small ENTER keys together.
