* AQUA MAN DIRECTIONS *
Aqua Man is a New Soleau Software Puzzle game in its continuing
series of Strategy games. The objective is to push various
shaped pipe links to connect the two storage pumps located on
the game board.
* MOVING AND PUSHING LINKS *
Aqua Man is controlled by the Arrow Keys (up/dwn/rgt/lft).
A link can be pushed in any direction by your man as long
as it has an unobstructed path. When pushed, a link will
continue to move in that direction until either it hits
another object or reaches the side of the game board.
* ROCKS / WHIRLPOOLS / STORAGE PUMPS *
The brown objects located on many puzzle levels are rocks and
cannot be moved. There are also occasionally two whirlpools
that can be used in your objective to connect the two storage
pumps. If you push a link into one of the whirlpools, it will
emerge from the other whirlpool and continue to slide in the
same direction until it hits another object. The link will
be eliminated if it emerges from the whirlpool and is blocked
by another object. There are also various links which have
no pipes on them. These will not help you connect the two
storage pumps, but can be placed so that the other links
can be properly pushed into the correct positions.
There is at least one solution to each of the 20 puzzles,
others have several solutions. There are no monsters, clocks,
or alien ships to contend with, it's just a pure logic game
which relies totally on your problem solving abilities.
* SCORE CARDS *
Aqua Man will allow up to five different players with a personal
score card. When you solve a puzzle, it will place a <*> after
the puzzle number showing that you solved that particular puzzle.
If you seem to be having trouble solving one puzzle, try another
one and come back to it later. Any of the 20 puzzles can be
tried, so you DO NOT need to do them in any particular order.
* KEYS / OPTIONS *
The keys for all the options are located at the bottom of
the game board.
