Before Horace can get to the ski-slopes he must fetch his skis
from a hut on the other side of a busy road. Horace will move
in one of four directions according to the keys you press. At
the beginning of the game Horace has $40 to spend. If he is
knocked down it will cost him $10 in ambulance fees.
After Horace has successfully crossed the road, guide him into
the door of the hut where he will fetch his skis. The charge for
ski hire is $10. Horace should not enter the ski hut unless he
can afford the hire charge. If Horace has spent all his money
on ambulance fees, then he can accumulate points and money by
crossing the road repeatedly. At every 1000 points boundary,
Horace receives a $10 bonus. Horace should not linger on the
road longer than necessary since the traffic becomes
progressively more conjested as time goes on.
