S O L E A U S O F T W A R E BALLOON CHALLENGE v1.0 ________________________ Program by William Soleau Requires: EGA/VGA Requires Files: Balloonc.ov0 Balloonc.ov1 Balloonc.ov2 Balloonc.ov3 Balloon1.jft Balloon2.jft OBJECTIVE The objective of Balloon Challenge is to get your 25 colored balloons as high as you can on the game board. The higher the balloon goes, the higher the points awarded. The player with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner. GAME PLAY At the start of a new game, the computer will decide who goes first. The computer always plays the Yellow balloons. At the bottom of the screen you will see your 25 balloons ready to be launched. There will be a white square drawn around the first balloon. Using your <Arrow Keys> move the marker to select the balloon you want to launch into the sky. To release the balloon, press the <Spacebar> key. GAME OBJECTS There are many different objects in the sky that you will have to either utilize or avoid, in your quest to get the balloon as high into the sky maze as possible. There are Airplanes, Dark Clouds, Bonus Clouds, Directional Clouds and Hurricanes. Airplanes: will destroy your balloon if you hit one. They continue to move one space at a time across the sky for each turn. Dark Clouds: will stop the balloons from going higher. Directional: will send the balloons in the direction of their Clouds arrow. Once a balloon has hit one of these clouds, the arrow will change to the other direction. Hurricanes: will move your balloon to a random place on game board, and it will continue to climb higher if it is able to do so. Bonus Points: If you can get your balloon to go through one of these clouds marked with a '10', then you will get an extra 10 points added to your score. These bonus clouds can only be captured once per game. SCORING Points are awarded for all the balloons which are located on the game board. Every row higher is worth 5 points. Since there are 15 rows, a balloon that reaches the very top will have a value of 75 points. Once all the balloons have been released by both players, the game will be over. The player with the highest score will be the winner. All balloons that are stuck on their launching pad because of an object directly above them, will be considered a grounded balloon because they will not be able to reach the first row. They will be automatically removed by the computer. KEYS / OPTIONS All key definitions are shown below the game board at all times. <D>irections <O>ptions <N>ew Game <Q>uit The <O>ption key brings up a menu which allows you to toggle the Sound on or off.

Every program we add to the library is thoroughly reviewed and tested to insure that each one meets the high standards of reliability and value we insist upon and you expect. As a result, our library doesn't contain every shareware program available, just those that really work. PC-SIG has grown into the premier distributor of shareware and and shareware information by producing shareware collections on CD-ROM, publishing an encyclopedia of shareware, and by publishing Shareware Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine distributed world-wide.
