You, a member of the great starfacing race of Intergalactic Cheesesnufflers, find yourself marooned in a maze somewhere beyond the furthest reaches of time and space. Obviously not one of your better days. To make matters even worse, the maze seems to be populated by nothing but your dreaded mortal enemies, the Red Meanies.
Things could be worse however, as there seem to be plentiful supplies of cheese around just waiting for you to ooze over them and absorb their nourishing energies. Still, staying alive could be very, very tricky...
Throughout the maze you will find a number of cheeses lying around on the floor. This is really very fortunate, as Intergalactic Cheesesnufflers eat nothing else. Most of the cheeses are of the boring red variety, mostly Red Windsor, but there are some green ones specially imported from the Moons of Mooria.
As if by magic, these cheeses are replenished when all are gone, so in order to ensure your continued supply of food you must keep eating. Luckily, you have with you your Handy-Dandy-Super-Intergalactic-Cheese-Detector-and-Combination-Tooth-Brush, or HDSICDACTB for short. This tells you how many cheeses are left, and what type they are. This information is displayed in the top left corner of the screen.
Life here wouldn't be so bad, except for the fact that some uncivilized lout has let a number of Red Meanies into the maze with you, and unfortunately they live entirely upon Intergalactic Cheesesnufflers. There is absolutely nothing that can be done about the Red Meanies as they stand (or hover slightly above the floor), except to stay out of their way.
Green cheeses, however, when eaten, exude a horrible smell which drives the Red Meanies temporarily insane and turns them blue. These creatures, the Blue Loonies, are very similar to the Red Manies but absolutely harmless. They are even quite a tasty morsel when eaten. Unfortunately, whenever you eat one, a Red Meanie replacement is let loose into the maze.
This, in itself, would not prove too much of a problem if the Blue Loonies didn't keep committing suicide by forcing open your mouth and leaping down your throat.
Again, you are not completely at sea here. You have another great achievement of amoeboid technology, the ADFDARMC, or Acme-Digital-Fingernail-Clipper-and-Red_Meanie-Counter for long. This gizmo not only sounds an alarm when a Red Meanie or Blue Loonie is near, but also scans the entire maze and displays their number and colour on the bottom left edge of the screen.
As do all Intergalatic Cheesesnufflers, you are able to binary fizz, and when you are being eaten, this will happen automatically. However, the more you do it, the more tenuous becomes your link with your original identity and by the time you have done it three times, you will be a completely different amoeba. The number of lives that you have left is displayed in the top right corner of the screen.
