Introduction

Flying your Emergency Rescue Helicopter on a routine patrol, you suddenly receive a radio message to proceed immediately to Mount Crona, a volcano on the east side of the island. As it last erupted 150 years ago, Crona was thought to be extinct but now it has erupted again, leaving a number of sightseers stranded on the side of the crater. In a few hours, the lava flow from the volcano will engulf them and they will die! Without a second thought, you turn your helictoper and fly to begin your rescue operation.

Complete with sound effects, full colour graphics and table of high scores, Volcano is fully compatible with either keyboard or joysticks.

The Game

Guide your Emergency Rescue Helicopter to rescue four men stranded on the side of Mount Crona, an erupting volcano. In order to reach them you will have to fly over the crater, avoiding or shooting the boulders that are being hurled from it. Pick up a man by flying down to him and carry him back to the safety of the bunker before he lets go and falls. When all four men are back, you will be given a more difficult volcano to tackle.

Your mission is really a race against time because while you are working, molten lava is pouring from the mouth of the volcano and running down the side of the crater towards the stranded men. If the lava reaches a man before you can rescue him he will die. Once a man is dead he becomes a ghost; deadly but indestructible!

Scores

Picking up a man 250 points
Returning a man to the bunker 500 points
Destroying a boulder 1 point

Once you have completed the first volcano, some of the boulders hurled from the crater will be gold. These gold boulders will give varying high scores when hit.

You start the game with three helictopers but you will receive a bonus helicopter for every 5,000 points you score, up to a maximum of three at any one time.

A table of the seven highest scores is displayed at the end of each game.
