Game Controls

You can choose the main keys that are used to play the game - use whichever you prefer, but not Q, S, P, U, M or the ESCAPE key, since these are fixed keys which control game features. The default keys are Z and X to move left and right, SHIFT to jump, SPACE to duck down and RETURN to fire.

Use S and Q to turn the sound on or off, M to turn the music on or off, P to pause the game and U to resume. Pressing ESCAPE ends the current game. Press the space bar to start a new game.

Colour/Monochrome Option

The game can be played using a colour or a monochrome display. Select the black and white option if you do not have a colour monitor or TV, in which case the game will adjust the colours to make the graphics easier to discern with a monochrome display.
