OBJECT:
Destroy the other ship before it destroys you. Use your
PHOTON TORPEDOS or PHASERS to reduce its SHIELD energy.
A hit with no shields will destroy the ship.

WEAPONS:
PHOTON TORPEDOS The best offsensive weapon. The torpedo takes
one unit of energy to fire and does four units
of damage to your opponent's shields.

PHASERS A good defensive weapon if you are accurate.
The phaser requires one unit of energy to fire
and does two units of damage to your opponent's
shields.

DEFENSE:
IMPULSE ENGINES Used to move your ship in the direction you are
pointing. Remember in space there is no friction,
to slow down you must turn your ship around and thrust
from the other direction. The impulse engines use
about one unit of energy every half second.

CLOAK Used to makes your ship invisible. You can still move,
fire, hyperspace, etc. but no one can see you, including
yourself. Cloaking will use about one unit of energy
every half second.

HYPER SPACE Hyper space is a quick way to get out of a bad
situation fast. You pay an eight energy units to use
hyper space and you don't know where you will end up.
COMMENTS:
You must have energy to use your weapons or defences. The 'E' bar on
your side of the bottom of the screen must display energy. Your 'E'
bar energy is recharged from your Dilithium crystals at one unit every
two seconds.

Use your phasers to shoot incoming photon torpedos. Those torpedos do
alot of damage.

If you hear the warning sound someone'sshield energy is below sixteen
units, and they are about to be distroyed. The 'S' bar on your side
of the bottom of the screen indicates you shield energy. Use the
energy balance keys to increase your shield energy and protect yourself.
The energy balance keys for the left player are 'Z' and 'C' and for the
right player '1' and '3'.

Warning, touching the planet will drain your shields very fast so stay
away.

When using Gravity try to get in orbit. Care must be use when firing
torpedoes in orbit. If they don't hit something they will come back
and hit you.

The Left Auto Robot is a good defensive player. He is a crack shot and
hard to destroy.

The Right Auto Robot is an offensive player. He will chase you around
space firing often.
