Playing Super Snakes -- This can also be viewed from the Help menu of Super
Snakes.


Game Objects:

Yellow bulldozer - This is YOU!

Purple snakes - These are evil snakes from hell and should be eliminated!


Gray blocks and walls - These cannot be moved or passed through. (unless the
gray pass wall power item has been hit)


Blue blocks - These can be pushed one(or more) at a time by the bulldozer.
They are used to kill snakes.

Red Power Rocks - These appear from time to time. Hit one and become immune
to snakes for several seconds. You can hit snakes directly to kill them.
Yellow bulldozer turns red while active.

Light Blue Time Warps - These clock-like items appear from time to time.
Hit one and freeze snakes for awhile. (Snakes can still kill you if you
hit them while they are frozen)

Small Gray Pass Wall Rocks - These appear from time to time. Hit one and you
can go through walls for awhile.


Playing Snakes:

You are the yellow bulldozer in the middle of the screen. You have three
lives at the start. There is no way to get more lives.

You move the bulldozer around the playing field by pressing the arrow keys
on the keyboard. The mouse CANNOT be used to move the bulldozer. The
mouse can only be used to Pause the game and to select from the menus.

The gray walls are solid and cannot be moved or passed through. (unless
the gray pass wall power item has been hit)

The blue blocks are moveable and are to be used to kill snakes. You can
push one or more blue blocks at a time.

The purple snakes move randomly about the screen. The snakes can be killed
by pushing the blocks into them. Pushing a blue block into a snake will
kill the segment that you hit, and all segments that were cut-off from the
head. To kill the whole snake the blue block must be pushed into the head
of the snake.

There are 10 snakes on each world. To move to the next world, all 10 snakes
must be killed.

Red Power Rocks will appear from time to time. If you run over one, your
bulldozer becomes red for several seconds. During this time you cannot be
killed by snakes. You can run directly into snakes and kill them. When
the bulldozer turns a dark shade of red the Power-Rock time is about to
run out.

Blue Time Warps will appear from time to time. They look like clocks.
If you run over one, the snakes will freeze for several seconds. You can
then push blocks into the immobile snakes. If you hit a frozen snake,
you will still die.

Gray Pass Wall Rocks will appear from time to time. If you run over one,
you can go through the gray wall for several seconds.


Scoring Snakes:

The object of the game is to accumulate points.

Points are gained by killing snakes.

Each snake segment is worth 5 points, each head is worth 20.

After killing 10 snakes you go to the next game world.


Paint Mode:

Super Snakes has a mode that will allow you to paint and play your own
custom worlds. These can be saved to a file and loaded anytime.

To enter paint mode choose the PAINT MODE option from the CUSTOM menu. The
screen will clear and the bulldozer will be placed in the middle of the
screen. You can put a grid up to assist in drawing the world by choosing
the GRID option from the CUSTOM menu.

To paint objects just click the mouse button where you want an item and it
will be placed there. To change the current paint item, select a different
one from the PAINT ITEM menu under the CUSTOM menu. The gray walls are
made up of the following pieces: vertical, horizontal, top/bottom/left/right
ends, single block, and the four corners. Use these to get the 3D look.
The blue blocks are for pushing into snakes. The Bulldozer always begins
in the middle of the screen. The snakes begin at the far right and left
edges. You must leave at least 10 empty spaces at the edges for the snakes to
appear in. If you don't, the game will hang. You control the snakes a little
by filling edge areas that you don't want them to appear in.

Select CLEAR from the CUSTOM menu to clear all objects from the board.

After painting a custom world select SAVE from the CUSTOM menu to save it to
a file. Then select PLAY from the CUSTOM menu to play the custom world. You
can load other custom worlds by selecting LOAD from the CUSTOM menu.

NOTE: The game must be in paint mode to load a custom world.
