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.
After fetching his ski's Horace must return across the road to
the ski slopes. In the second part of the game Horace must ski
down the Hannekon run avoiding the trees and slaloming between
the red and blue pairs of flags. If Horace fails to pass between
the flags a warning note is sounded and Horace will lose points.
Horace can parallel left and right with the joystick
as above repsectively. Horace increases his points by passing
between the flags and he can also receive a 100 points bonus by
passing through the finish barrier. As in the highway section,
theres a $10 bonus at every 1000 point boundary.
should hit a tree then he can continue on the slope provided that
his skis do not break. If his skis do break then Horace must
again cross the road for a new set of skis and then return across
the road to the ski slopes. If Horace successfully completes the
course with his skis intact then he must cross the road once with
his skis to the next slope.
