Surf the streets and pick up the Coke bottles. Snatch a drink
when a friendly driver offers you the chance and watch out for
the chicken crossing the road. (Find out WHY if you get the time!).
Keep on moving at all costs, becouse not all cars on this road
are driven by Good Guys. Hang around too long and chances are you'll
get spread out a little!
At intervals down the road you'll find the bottle banks. Lob in
the empties for higher scores and a healthy glow. The more you recycle
the longer you're likely to be able to stay out on the road, listen
to the music, bump the carsm jump the oil slicks and watch the
chicken go by...
PLAYING THE GAME
The aim is nice and simple. Score points. You do this by just
travelling the road and staying on the board. However, to survive
the little problems in life, like getting totalied by a passing car
or being sent skidding off into the sunset by an oil slick. It helps
to get some health insurance.
Collect the empty Coke bottles lying by the side of the road.
Deposit them at the neighbourhood recycling bottle bank and you not
only pick up 20 points per empty, but your state of health improves
dramatically! Clean up the city for a clean bill of health. Just steer
over them to grab hold.
Some car drivers will offer you a drink as they pass. Move in close
to take it. It helps you stay out there a little longer and hence score
Now the problems, watch out for the cars coming up behind you.
You can bump the sides of them, or the back of them if you're REAL
careful. But staying in front of them will not lead to a happy
retirement. In addition there are patches of oil dotted liberally down
the tarmac. Hitting one of these is a bad idea. Unless that is, you
fancy the trip. If you're going fast enough, however, you can skip
over them, by jumping at just the right moment. Tricky.
