Space Spirals is a unique "arcade" style game for IBM
PC/XT/AT microcomputers. It can also be used as fun mouse
coordination training tool.

To play Space Spirals you must have an IBM PC compatible
microcomputer with the MS-DOS operating system, a CGA
compatible graphics card, and a Microsoft compatible mouse.

To start Space Spirals:

(1) Make certain your computer has a properly installed
Microsoft compatible mouse.

(2) Set the current drive and directory to the directory
that contains the program and data files.

(3) Type "SSPIRALS" (do not type the quotes) and press the
'enter' key.

(4) Wait for the program to start and select the desired
choice from the menus.

The first time the program is run it will ask you about the
type of computer system that you have. Press the key
corresponding to the system whose performance most closely
matches that of your computer.

To receive instructions about how to play the game, press
the 'H' key when you see the main menu.

A few pointers: There are many subtle patterns, strategies,
and nuances to the game. Don't just blast, OBSERVE and
think. Each type of attacker has its own personality.
There are also global patterns of timing and attack. To
build up your shields conserve your energy, don't just fire
away like a madperson. Enjoy!

To abort the game in progress press the 'Q' key during a
round. This quit option does NOT function between rounds,
it only works while you are being attacked!
