The primary program on this disk, SPACEWAR, is an excellent asteroid type arcade game. The three versions, SWC for color graphics, SWATT for the ATT 6300 using 640x400 graphics mode, and SWH for the Hercules graphics card, provide good detail in a fast paced game. Other games include some Turbo Pascal offerings and a large number of BASIC games and demos. The large number of small simple BASIC demos with a few Turbo programs to add spice make this an excellent package for the novice programmer. Special Requirements: Hercules or color graphics card, other programs require BASIC How to Start: To read DOC or TXT files, enter TYPE filename.ext and press <ENTER>. To run an EXE or COM program, just type its name and press <ENTER>. For instructions on running BASIC programs, please refer to the GETTING STARTED section in this catalog.

SPACEWAR.DOC SPACEWAR documentation file. ( This file. ) S P A C E W A R G A M E I N S T R U C T I O N S OBJECT: Destroy the other ship before it destroys you. Use your PHOTON TORPEDOS or PHASERS to reduce its SHIELD energy. A hit with no shields will destroy the ship. WEAPONS: PHOTON TORPEDOS The best offsensive weapon. The torpedo takes one unit of energy to fire and does four units of damage to your opponent's shields. PHASERS A good defensive weapon if you are accurate. The phaser requires one unit of energy to fire and does two units of damage to your opponent's shields. DEFENSE: IMPULSE ENGINES Used to move your ship in the direction you are pointing. Remember in space there is no friction, to slow down you must turn your ship around and thrust from the other direction. The impulse engines use about one unit of energy every half second. CLOAK Used to makes your ship invisible. You can still move, fire, hyper space, etc. but no one can see you. Cloaking will use about one unit of energy every half second. HYPER SPACE Hyper space is a quick way to get out of a bad situation fast. You pay eight energy units to use hyper space, and you don't know where you will end up. COMMENTS: You must have energy to use your weapons or defenses. The 'E' bar on your side of the bottom of the screen must display energy. Your 'E' bar energy is recharged from your Dilithium crystals at one unit every two seconds. Use your phasers to shoot incoming photon torpedos. Those torpedos do alot of damage. If you hear the warning sound, someone's shield energy is below sixteen units, and they are about to be distroyed. The 'S' bar on your side of the bottom of the screen indicates you shield energy. Use the energy balance keys to increase your shield energy and protect yourself. The energy balance keys for the left player are 'Z' and 'C' and for the right player '1' and '3'. Warning, touching the planet will drain your shields very fast so stay away. When using Gravity try to get in orbit. Care must be used when firing torpedoes in orbit. If they don't hit something, they will come back and hit you. The Left Auto Robot is a good defensive player. He is a crack shot and hard to destroy. The Right Auto Robot is an offensive player. He will chase you around space firing often. S P A C E W A R I B M P C F U N C T I O N K E Y S F1 = Exits to DOS in attract mode. Switchs to attract mode in when playing the game.
