keyboard or a joystick. If you wish to play using the keyboard the control
Z = move left
,X = move right
M = fire
The shield is activated by the spacebar (or by pushing the joystick forward).
The Weetabix are being attacked by The Titchies. Your job is to help them beal
off these attacks.
Fortunately the rest ol The Weetabix have found a supply of Weetarockets below
the screen, so with your help Dunk can throw these up the screen to defeat the
evil Titchy threat.
The Titchies are trying to hit Dunk by dropping dangerous lightning bolts, so
you should try to make him dodge the bolts if you can. If a bolt gets too
close, you can neutralise It with your NEET WEET FORCE SHIELD. Be sure to use
it in time, otherwise it will activate automatically to desiroy the bolt, but
will also drain away some of Dunk's precious NEET WEET EMERGY.
The amount of energy Dunk has left is shown by the level indicator on the
screen - the shorter the coloured block, the less energy Dunk has left. . . so
be careful (Running about throwing missiles, and using your force shield also
uses up energy so don't over do it.)
Dunk's only chance is to defeat The Titchies with lhe missiles. These will be
passed up from the bottom of the screen by Bixie, Crunch, Brains and Brian.
Dunk will pick up any missile he finds on the ground, but you must direct him
to it, and tell him when to throw it.
The NEET WEET EMERGY the missile contains is more than enough to overcome the
first Tilchy it hits, but if it misses all The Titchies it will explode
harmlessly at the top of the screen.
In an attempt to make Dunk's task even more difficult, the Titchles move in an
odd formation - they wind their way slowly up the screen, but once at the top
they speed down towards the ground and across the screen, Just above Dunk's
head. This is when they are at their most dangerous, SO BE CAREFUL...
If you and Dunk can wipe out the whole Titchy formation before running out of
energy, a new wave of faster, meaner, more vicious Titchies will appear.
To deal with the new attack, Dunk will be topped up with more NEET WEET ENERGY
just before the battle starts. Don't waste it.
Dunk gets points for each Titchy he hits. At first he gets 10 pts. per TItchy,
but this Increases to 20..30..40, etc, as he wipes out successive waves of
Titchies. Dunk's score and the number of Titchies remaining on the screen are
shown on the top of the screen.
Dunk needs your help, so good luck, OK!
