* Objective *

Ladder Man is another problem solving puzzle game from
Soleau Software. The objective is to find a way to collect all
the yellow diamonds located on each floor, then succeed in
climbing to the top of the room. There are 30 floors of
puzzles to solve in Ladder Man 1.

* Moving Ladder Man / Solving Room *

You control the movements of Ladder Man by using the
arrow keys. Ladder Man is effected by gravity, so he needs to
use his ladder to climb on to objects to reach his goals. The
space bar activates his ladder which can only reach up two
grids. Using your problem solving skills, you must figure out
how to grab all the diamonds located in each room. Once all
the diamonds have been collected, a yellow bar will appear at
the top of the screen. This yellow bar means that all the
diamonds have been taken. Ladder Man must now climb to the top
of the room and reach for the yellow bar allows him to exit
the puzzle.

* Objects *

There are many objects located on each floor that can be
used to help you complete each room. There are balls that you
can push around to create steps for you to climb up on. There
are Multi Blocks, Four Ball Holders, Gondolas, Fire Hydrants
and more objects which will help you achieve the solution to
the puzzle. These objects are demonstrated in the DEMO Program
which can be selected at the Main Menu. There are two hazards
you must avoid, fire and water. If Ladder Man walks or falls
into either of these, your attempt at the room will be over
and you will be asked if you want to try the same room again.

* Personal Score Cards / Solutions *

When you first play the game, you are asked to create
your own score card. By entering your initials, you create a
personal file that will keep track of the rooms you've solved
and the number of attempts it took. If you complete a room and
your number of moves was the lowest on record, then your
solution to that room will be saved and you can play back your
solution by starting the room over again and pressing the
slution key. Only players that have completed the room will
be allowed to see the solution.

(The SOLUTION.DOC file describes how you can get our solutions
to all the rooms Free! See SOLUTION.DOC file for details.)

There are many different strategies that you can use to
solve these puzzles. If a floor seems to be giving you
problems, go on to another one and come back to it later. You
can access any of the 30 different rooms from the Main Menu.
There is at least one solution for each floor.

* DEMO *

All the objects you can encounter on the different floors
are described in the DEMO PROGRAM, which is accessed from the
Main Menu. If you are new to the game, this DEMO will take
you through a puzzle room step by step so that you will
understand the elements of the game. It is STRONGLY
RECOMMENDED to run the DEMO program when playing Ladder Man
for the first time.

* Important Note *

It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that Ladder Man be put in a
separate directory on your Hard Drive. Due to the graphics
involved, the loading and exiting of the game will be
considerably slower from a floppy disk. Ladder Man creates many
files as you continue to play. If playing from a low density
floppy disk, you might run out of room eventually, therefore you
should either transfer the game to a HD disk or erase some of
the document files included with the game. Whether playing from a
floppy disk or a Hard Drive, due to the number of files the
game creates, you should locate the game in its own sub-directory.
