User guide

It contains the following games:

Centipede - Blast away all the approaching Centipede bits.

Snake - Guide the Snake towards the numbered blocks.

Invaders - Destroy all the Alien Invaders before they reach the bottom of the screen.

Light Cycles Guide your way away from the enemy lines in a rather basic remake of the classic Tron game.

Asteroids - Shoot all the floating Asteroids for whatever reason there ever was for doing it in any other version of the game.

Racer - This game has been hidden like some Easter Egg.

Escape - Grab the blue square and keep it away from the red ones.

Missile Command - Destroy the approaching missiles, before they destroy your bases.

Dot Pop - With 30 seconds on the clock, hit as many squares as you can.

Pacman - With two full screens of pills to empty, and eight ghosts running around, you’d better get moving.

Frogger - Passes 2 huge busy roads instead of river.

Pong - Just you, a CPU, and a ball. Number of ball would increase as difficulty increases.

Tetris - Classics added according to requests.

Buzzard Bait! - Flap about and kill the other jousters. Collect their eggs before the re-hatch.

Lights Out - Tap the grid to invert a + of lights. Switch them all off to advance to the next level.

5 in a Line - Shuffle the grid around to match up 5 tiles of the same color in a single line.

Tune Tap - A tune is played, then repeat it. It’s like a really cheap version of Parappa.

QBert - Hop around the blocks, color them all in, and avoid the flashing balls of death.

Dodge Spikes - Move left and right, avoid all the spikes, and collect as many coins as possible.


Stylus - Move around menu

Each minigame has its own controls.
