Santa's Sleigh | Yule Spell


SANTA'S SLEIGH Screen Three - A Formidable Challenge Indeed Christmas is here once more and Santa is getting ready to deliver all his presents. The sleigh is waiting and all he needs to do is load up the goodies.

Rudolf has been put out to pasture and the sleigh is now gas-powered. It's a bit of a fuel guzzler so take it easy and keep an eye on the fuel gauge.

The presents have been stolen and scattered throughout a warehouse, so you guide Santa round on his sleigh and pick them all up.

When you have collected all the presents in one room you can move on to the next through the exit at the bottom of the screen.

This is by no means an easy task since many dangers lurk deep within the warehouse.

Watch out for the large spider descending on its thread and dodge the Christmas crackers bouncing up and down.

Game Controls:
Z - Left, X - Right, RETURN - Thrust

YULE SPELL - A Seasonal Variation Of HANGMAN Yippee! It's Christmas morning and Santa has left lots of presents for you hanging on the tree. But before you can have them you must guess a hidden word.

At the bottom of the screen you'll see a row of dots, one for each letter in the word. Press a letter to make a guess and if you are right it will be entered into the correct position.

However, if you are wrong one of your presents will be taken off the tree.

Can you guess the word or will you lose all your presents? It's up to you.

YULE SPELL is a seasonal variation on that old classic Hangman and is great fun for all the family.

There are about 160 words and I have included as many seasonal ones as I can. You can easily add your own by tagging them on to the end of one of the data statements starting at line 800.

There is a short delay when the program is run as it draws the title page.

Plus 3 users should save the program before running it since it switches off the ADFS and downloads to &E00.

C% The letter chosen
B% Position of the letter in the word
F% True if the letter appears more than once
M% The number of words
S% The number of letters guessed
T% The number of guesses
A$ The word


lost Erases the fairy
escape Ends the game
space Waits for the spacebar to be pressed
dunnit Congratulates the player
tune Plays Jingle Bells
present Draws each present
fairy Draws the fairy
flakes Draws the snowflakes
