Your underground empire is under threat from a burgeoning influx of goblins and small dragons. Whenever they are running or hovering through the earth, they will kill you on contact. However, your situation is not hopeless: You may inflate them by aiming your blaster at them and pumping it into them until they burst. When inflated, the nasties are incapable of movement.
However, you cannot inflate several intruders at the same time. Instead, you have another option: dig a path underneath a rock from below, and then quickly move to one side. A few moments after no earth is under the rock, it will fall down and crush everything that is in its path. If it successfully crushes one of the nasties, a power bonus will appear in the middle of the upper half of the game, which will award points when picked up.
In the upper left corner you can see your remaining lives. The flowers growing on the right top of the grass show you the current level number, with a large flower for five levels completed.
Move the character with the arrow keys; Fire with the Space bar.
A running game can be ended with the CLEAR key

As you can see from the scores awarded, inflating the goblins and dragons brings relatively few points. For more points, you should try to lure the nasties under the rocks and then kill them by dropping the the rocks onto them. Each round ends after the third bonus has been collected. A bonus only appears when the previous one has been collected.
