Defend the colonists as the aliens swoop in for the attack.
The aliens now attack the transporter ship. Defend it with your Starfighter.
The transporter runs out of energy, you have to dock with it to transfer the colonists.

You start with two, and each spin costs 10p. When the hold lights appear, you may hold the position of any of the three reels with the keys 1, 2 and 3.
If you are lucky enough to win, you are given the opportunity to gamble. The two flashing lights will tell you how much you could win, or how much you could lose if you lose the gamble. You also have a nudge feature - you can gamble or collect nudges up to a maximum of 18 nudges.

Become a master of this mysterious eastern art as you progress from novice to tenth dan.
In the one player game, the aim is to move up through the Dan levels by defeating successive opponents, each one slightly better than the previous one. Your ultimate goal is to reach 10th Dan. To achieve this you must score two full points over your opponent, which are awarded by the judge.
In the two player game, the winner is determined by whoever scores the most after a set of four bouts.

The ultimate aim of Jump Challenge is to jump as far as you can while still maintaining control of the bike on landing.
Before you can try your hand at jumping a motorcycle over cars, you have to prove your worth, jumping a bicycle over oil barrels.
Z - Lean forwards, X - Lean backwards (Reversed depending on which way the bike is facing)

1-5 - Gear shift (1 = 1st gear, 2 = 2nd gear, etc)

The fire button will also make the bike turn and face the opposite direction when stationary. When approaching a ramp, use the fire button to abort the jump at the last minute!
To become a real strongman like Geoff Capes is not easy. Muscles that can roll a car onto its roof or hurl barrels onto a waiting truck can't just grow overnight. If you are hoping to match these feats you are going to have to work hard during the training sessions.
Even if you manage to build the sort of body equipped to cope with each of the six very difficult events, you will need skill and quick reactions to be successful.
Z - Left, X - Right, : - Up, ? - Down, RETURN - Fire
To increase or decrease effort, use the up and down cursor keys.
