Life's not all a bowl of spinach for Popeye, as he hunts
for hearts to win the love of Olive Oyl. His rival, the
macho Bluto, is not amused. He thumps around making
pulp of Popeye.
Olive Oyl demands a never-ending supply of love! Keep her
sweet by collecting 25 scattered hearts and handing them
over. Take care to check Olive's loveometer. When her love
level starts to fade you must restore it by delivering some
of the hearts you have collected.
The task is not easy. Hearts can be anywhere - up the lighthouse,
on board the ship, under the ocean, locked in the house, on the
roof, inside the fruit machine...
It's not just the right door keys that Popeye needs to collect on
The coin is for the fruit machine - but what's the lucky combination
you must 'hold'? And why is there an explosive fuse below the lighthouse?
It could have something to do with Popeye firing the cannon - but don't
let him jump onto a red flame!
Don't get bowled over by the flying saucer as it passes the roof,
but hop on and see where it takes you.
The sailor man is not the only one seeking Olive Oyl's love. Bluto is
his rival, pacing up and down outside Olive's house. Avoid Bluto and all
the other moving objects - giant birds, flying witches, snoring dragons
and gnashing sharks - as they have a habit of knocking Popeye for six.
He'll survive if you have a tin of spinach in store for him, of course,
but you can only carry eight things around with you - including hearts
and keys as well as tins of the life-giving green stuff.
Remember that as well as climbing up and down the stairs and ropes, Popeye
can move backwards and forwards. He can step into doorways out of harm's
way, go in and out of buildings and explore behind objects. This takes care
of most of his problems, but watch out for Bluto who switches from layer
to layer on his patrol.
You score 1,000 points for each heart delivered, with a time bonus for delivering
them all - and a special reward from Olive!
