The Game

Getting started. Unlike our other games, this one will start up into attract mode. To begin, you need to select "new game" from the game menu or press F2.

Another change is the "Game Mode". From the menu you can select the type of game you wish to play, either "normal" or "free mode". In a normal game you will be given 10 credit, where the object is to win as much virtual cash as possible for a highscore and your own saticfaction. In Free Play, you can insert as much money as you want into the machine (imagine you have a bottomless wallet!!), but you cannot save a highscore.

In our previous game's you had a button to click to insert money.. In Halloween this button has gone - you can now click on the LED display for the same effect.
