Munchkin is back in town with another wild adventure! This time
he takes it upon himself to combat the dreadful "Dratapillar" and his
You will find your Munchkin in the centre of a complex labyrinth,
waiting for your instructions. In the left-hand top corner that
ferocious Dratapillar! He does not stay there for long - and starts
his rampage through the maze in search of your Munchkin.
His faithful, evil cohorts, the Drats, start from their positions
in the left- and right-hand bottom corners. They immediately team
up and set out to capture your Munchkin, so be aware!
You move your Munchkin with the joystick of the left handset and
you better do it fast too, those Drats won't leave you much time.
Your first concern is to keep clear of those Drats! The very
moment they start their pursuit, another handicap appears. Trees
that block your passage! They do not hinder the Drats.
You can do one of two things: avoid them by taking another route,
or simple have your Munchkin munch them away. It does take some
time, but if you do, you score one point. Be careful when
making your choice because those Drats show no consideration.
You will find two escape hatches on either side of the labyrinth.
When you use them to escape the Drats, your Munchkin will return
again on the other side of the labyrinth. This is quite important

only do this when you approach him from behind, or at least when
you manage to stay away from his head and fearsome jaws! When the
Dratapillar succeeds in putting his teeth into your Munchkin, you

another situation arises. The Drats turn pale with fright and
as long as they are white you can munch them! When you do, they
will be stunned for a while before returning to their original,
dreadful selves again.
You score 3 points for munching a Dratapillar segment and 10 points
for a Drat! If you succeed in munching all the Dratapillar segments,
you get 20 bonus points.
Your Munchkin will also smile and wink triumphantly. You don't get
much time to celebrate your victory however, because a new Dratapillar
and two more Drats will make their appearance almost immediately. You will
actually find that the game gets tougher to play as you score more
