How to play Space Flees
S P A C E F L E E S ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ By John Mifsud (C) 1988, Independent Software Group, Inc. This is an action arcade game for IBM PC/AT and compatibles with an ega or vga card. The game will probably run on a normal pc/xt but quite slowly for an action game... The object of the game is to shoot as many flees as possible. (original huh?) You start with three ships. Several flees will appear near the top of the screen and will attack your ship. If a flee touches your ship, you die. If you shoot a flee, it dies. Your shields will not only stop flees from killing you, but will also destroy flees who come in contact with them. The controls are : Move Left = <Alt> Move Right = left <Shift> Fire = right <Shift> Shield = <Caps Lock> The key layout works well with the original AT keyboard. (the one with the function keys on the left) Future versions will use the joystick or mouse. The <caps lock> key TOGGLES the shields on or off. On the left side of the screen is a meter for the shield strength. While the shields are on they use power, when the power runs out so do the shields... Scoring : The scoring is simple but unusual. There are NO points for killing flees. However, every time a flee dies its body is placed in the box at the right side of the screen. (the body count) When this box is filled, the screen is cleared and the next wave begins. At the bottom of the screen is a trophy case. Every wave another marker is placed in this case, and an extra ship is awarded. (max of 2 extra ships at any one time) Misc : - The shields are recharged at the end of a wave and for each new ship. - You can specify the number of flees on the screen as a parameter from dos For example "flees 6" will use six flees.
