Guide the ball down each course as quickly as possible. Each course has different challenges, obstacles and pitfalls. You are limited to seven jumps per course, and each course has a time limit. Any remaining time is added to the next course. It pays to be fast. A bonus game gives some respite, repeating movement patterns to win bonus points.
The object of the game is to guide the ball down each of the 21 different courses as quickly as possible. Each course is different and holds different challenges, obstacles, and pitfalls.
There are five different player options presented across the bottom of the screen. To select the one you want, use the joystick to move the highlight to the desired option and press the FIRE button. Courses are chosen by highlighting one of the three letters at the far right side of the screen and moving the joystick UP/forward or DOWN/backward to scroll through the available choices.
You are limited to seven jumps per course. Each course has a time limit for completion (remaining time carries over to the next course). Try to complete as many of the 21 courses as possible to achieve a high score. You control your racer with the joystick in port 1, and your view is shown in the top half of the screen.
The same rules as in the one-player arcade game, but two players race against each other. Racer number 1 is shown in the top half of the screen, racer number 2 on the bottom. The second player controls the race with a joystick in port 2 or with the keyboard.
Practice anyone course with a 99-second time limit. The course to be run is indicated by the first of the three letters in the lower right of the screen. Use the joystick to change courses.
Pick three courses and race against another player. There is a 99-second time limit on each player.
The same as a two-player match, but you compete against a robot player controlled by the computer.
You receive 10 points for each square traversed (100 points per square while in warp speed), and a bonus for time remaining at completion of each course. You are awarded a bonus game every three levels.
The computer will move the ball a number of squares and you must repeat the pattern exactly to win bonus points. Pick a square to move to and then press the FIRE button.
