- DESCRIPTION -

Vous dirigez une balle sur un tapis roulant composé de cases dont certaines ont des effets sur la balle (ralentissement, saut, inversion des commandes...). Le tout est de rejoindre l'arrivée dans les temps et sans tomber dans le vide.

- MISC -

Il a été récompensé par un TILT D'OR Canal+ en 1987 dans la catégorie meilleur jeu d'action.

Le jeu utilise la technique du Multi-Mode qui permet de mélanger les modes graphiques.
La zone de jeu est en MODE 0 et la zone des informations est en MODE 1.
La palette de couleur est changée par l'utilisation des rasters entre les 2 zones.

Le tapis roulant est réalisé grâce à un changement de palette à chaque ligne (rasters) dans 5 encres différentes, une pour chaque bande. Ce principe sera repris plus tard dans des démos pour faire des scrolling-texts (Ex: THE DEMO).
