Your defenseless piglets (Pooyan) are in constant danger of being kidnapped by hungry
wolves. The wolves, clinging to helium balloons, attack your home and family from the
As the wolves float down from the treetop, they throw deadly acorns at you. You travel up
and down the cliff in your basket, firing arrows at the wolves' balloons. When you hurl your
secret weapon - a chunk of meat - the wolves let go of their balloons in a futile attempt to
grab it and they perish. But if you fail to avoid a wolf's acorn, you fall out of the basket and
lose a life.
The battle continues in enemy territory - the wolves' lair! The wolves now inflate balloons,
float to a cliff top, and try to push a giant rock down on you. On their way up they throw more
acorns which you must dodge. Your arrows and chunks of meat must stop the wolves from getting
to the giant rock!

First Scene: Pooyan's Home (Odd-Numbered Rounds)
Grab the meat from the cliff top for 200 points.
Throw the meat, and the first wolf who lets go of his balloon is worth 400 points. (The meat can touch either the wolf or the balloon to make him let go.) The next wolf you lets go of his balloon while grabbing for the same meat is worth 800 points, and every succeeding wolf who lets go is worth 1,600 points.
After a wolf lets go of this balloon, shoot the balloon for 200 points. Hit an acorn or a balloon with your arrow and score 200 points. The first four wolves who land safely climb one of the ladders behind you; if a wolf on a ladder bites you, you topple out of your basket and lose a life.
Second Scene: Wolves' Lair (Even-Numbered Rounds)
Shoot the balloons that float up out of pots for 50 or 100 points. In this scene, some balloons which the wolves hold have one or two additional balloons inside! You score 200 points only when you pop the innermost balloon and the wolf falls to the ground. As in the first scene, score points for grabbing the meat at the cliff top, making wolves let go of their balloons, and then shooting the balloons.
When five or fewer wolves remain in the second scene, the orange Boss Wolf appears, clutching a multi-coloured balloon. If he makes it to the cliff top, five more wolves appear. To dispose of Boss Wolf, hit him with the meat or hit his balloon several times with your arrows.
If seven wolves reach the top of the cliff, they push the rock down on you and a green curtain falls. When the curtain rises, there are then four wolves gathered behind the rock.
If an acorn hits you before seven wolves have reached the top of the cliff, then the curtain also falls. This time when it rises, there are as many wolves behind the rock as there were just before the curtain fell - plus however many wolves had reached the top of the cliff before the curtain fell (even if they had not yet taken their place in line).
Score 200 points for each strawberry or apple you shoot. Shoot all of them (15) and win 5,000 points. Bonus scenes do not count as rounds.
An extra pig is awarded for every 30,000 points accumulated.
The number on the left-hand flag represents the number of wolves left in the scene. In the first round, you start with 32 wolves, and in the second round you start with 40 wolves. Each succeeding round begins with 48 wolves. The number on the right-hand flag shows the number of lives you have in reserve. You start with six lives - one in the basket and five in reserve.
A green curtain falls after you lose a life. In a two-player game this curtain indicates a change of players. An orange curtain falls after you kill all of the wolves in a round. Between rounds, the round number (and player number in a two-player game) is shown on the orange curtain.
Skill levels change automatically. The better you get, the greater challenge you face.
You have an unlimited number of arrows to shoot at the wolves. The wolves use shields (the sticks onto which the balloons are tied) to protect themselves from your arrows. When an arrow hits a stick, it is deflected down. Use this phenomenon to your advantage when the wolves are in a vertical line. Occasionally, your arrows won't pop the wolves' balloons.
You can deflect acorns off the top and bottom of your basket.
The meat is usually available at the beginning of each new scene and at other times throughout the scene. Be sure to watch for it! To obtain it, move the pig up until you reach the meat, press the fire button or Space to hurl it. The meat will not appear while your basket is at the very top of the cliff. If you toss the meat and it hits a balloon without a wolf, the meat will be deflected back towards you.
Between the scene at the pigs' home and the scene at the wolves' lair, the wolves kidnap some pigs. In the second scene, you can see some of the captured pigs in the jail at the bottom left corner of your screen.
