Trail-Burners : (c) Dom. Early 1991


Intro :
-------

Trail-burners is a multi-player arcade game where you burn a trail around
the screen and dodge other trails. It supports up to 4 human players (mind
you, 4 sharing the keyboard is a little awkward, but great fun) as well as
25 or so computers. A log of each player's progress is kept during the game.


The Game :
----------

You guide a trail-burner around the screen, leaving a trail as you go. You
must avoid crossing your own trail and the trails of your competitors. The
winner is the last remaining trail-burner on the screen ie. the one which has
not crossed any other trails.

You can have both human opposition and computer generated opposition. You are
armed with a chicken button which allows you to pierce holes in trails ahead of
you. This weapon can be used to attack and defend but remember you only have
two shots so use them wisely.

Keys can be changed before each game by pressing F2. Sound may be toggled using
ALT-S at any time during the game. You can quit the game at any time using
the ESCAPE key.


Requirements :
--------------

This program should work on any PC with more than 128K ram. It works well on
all graphics formats including Hercules, though EGA/VGA are recommended as the
other formats are monochromatic only. The program has been tested with DOS 5
4.01 and 3.3 and works well with all. I am unsure about previous versions.
