Our hero has just been shrunk to the size of an aspirin bottle by a 'cure' for indigestion!
The only thing that can save him now is the magical elixir kept on the top shelf at the back of the shop.
Make your way across the shelves in your search for the antidote.
You'll need to leap lipstick missiles, escape exploding flash bulbs, dodge the dripping acid and watch out for the curious 'circularsaurus' creature.
Playing The Game
In order to reach the elixir, you must walk, climb and jump. You can jump on and between various objects, provided that they are not too high.
There are six coloured pills which you will come across:
Red - Vitamin pills which you should take
Cyan - These will slow you down
Magenta - These will also slow you down
Blue - These will speed you up
Yellow - These are fatal - instantly
Green - These will cause you to fall off the object on which you are standing
Z - Left, X - Right, * - Jump/Climb up, ? - Climb down
RETURN - Select status screen, ESCAPE - Exit From Game
f0/f1 - Pause On/Off, f2/f3 - Sound On/Off
1/2 - Pause On/Off, 3/4 - Sound On/Off
Your objective is to reach the Elixir. However, the remedy is only effective when you have collected all 40 red vitamin pills; you will then have amassed 2,000 points. 50 points are gained each time you collect a red vitamin pill.
