Your chef, Peter Pepper, is surrounded! Pickles and hot dogs are
everywhere! Dodge down a ladder, pepper a pickle and you've
escaped. They all chase after you. Run for your life to the next bun.
Gobble some fries along the way and you've got some pepper -- just
in case. Lead them on a chase and the nasties get stuck together.
Tiptoe onto a bun and they follow you in a bunch. Pepper 'em, step
off, and drop 'em. WAY TO MOVE! You've got 8000 points and are one
step closer to BURGERTIME.
OBJECT OF THE GAME
Score more points than your opponent while building hamburgers.
Avoid dangerous hot dogs, pickles and eggs. Points are scored for
dropping ingredients and squashing nasties. Maximum point value is
received for giving those foes a ride on a falling bun, patty, tomato,
or lettuce leaf.
USING THE DISC: There are 4 directions in which you can move your
chef, left, right, up and down. Move your chef by pressing the outside
edges of the disc in the direction you want to move.
USING THE SIDE BUTTONS: Pepper is sprinkled using any side button.
YOU CAN MOVE AND SPRINKLE PEPPER AT THE SAME TIME.
When game title appears, it is time to decide on your playing speed.
For fastest speed possible press the disc. The 1, 2 and 3 buttons will
give you slower speeds. Each speed is indicated by a different
symbol that will appear on the right side of the screen.
DISC: Fastest. Symbol: Dot.
1: Fast. Symbol: Two vertical dots.
2: Medium. Symbol: Two horizontal dots.
3: Slow. Symbol: Dash
CHOOSE 1 or 2 PLAYERS
Once you select playing speed and press the correct key, the
computer will ask you to: Select 1 or 2 Players:
*�Press Key 1 for a 1-Player game
*�Press Key 2 for a 2-Player game
Press ENTER and the game will start.
1-PLAYER GAME...Play until all 5 chefs are gone.
2-PLAYER GAME...Player #1 plays until he/she loses 1 chef. Player
#2 then takes over. Each player has 5 chefs. If one player gains extra
chefs for good play, that player may continue after the other player
GAME STARTS AS SOON AS YOU PRESS ENTER.
You control the chef. Move him up ladders and across planks using
the direction disc. Move your chef completely across a bun and it
drops down one level. You rack up 50 points. You also rack up 50
points for each patty, tomato slice, and lettuce leaf that you drop.
You start with 5 chefs, but only one can be used at a time. For every
10,000 points scored, you get an extra chef. The number of chefs you
have waiting are displayed in the lower right corner of the screen.
NASTIES AND MAZES
Hot Dogs, Eggs and Pickles chase your chef wherever he goes in the
maze. If you catch him, the round is over. All the nasties get smarter
as you go along.
There are seven mazes constructed of ladders and planks. Some are
more difficult than others. When you successfully build all the
hamburgers in one maze, you move on to the next maze. When all
seven mazes have been completed, you start over again with the first
maze -- only at a more difficult level. Your current level is displayed
after you lose your chef.
FOR MORE POINTS
DROP the ingredients ON TOP of the nasties. You will get 100 points
for each one you squash. Squashed nasties come back to life from
either side of the screen.
FOR EVEN MORE POINTS
Tempt the nasties out onto a bun and then drop it by stepping off.
The bun will drop TWO levels. The more nasties on the bun, the
higher the point value. (See chart.) After a few seconds, dropped
nasties return from the point where they ended their fall.
FOR MAXIMUM POINTS
Lead the nasties on a chase and get them to meet at corners. If they
meet and head in the same direction (and you're lucky), they will
stick together. Get as many stuck together as you can and give them
a ride on a falling bun or other ingredient. You will score big.
AND A PINCH OF PEPPER
Pepper may be used to temporarily stun nasties if you are trapped.
This tactic allows you to move out of corners unharmed. You can only
throw pepper IN THE DIRECTION YOU ARE MOVING OR LAST MOVED.
You start with 4 pinches of pepper which are displayed in the lower
left corner of the screen. You can earn extra pinches of pepper by
gobbling ice cream, coffee, ketchup, or french fries depending on
your level. You get 500 points and a pinch of pepper for each item
gobbled. Smart cooks only use pepper when they need to. That
pepper can be very valuable at the upper levels.
For one player games, the running score is tallied on the upper left in
yellow. The center score (green) is the highest score achieved at that
For two player games, Player #1 has his score displayed on the left,
Player #2 on the right. The score is bright yellow for the player in
control of the chef while the score is tan for the player at rest. Again,
the green score in the center is the highest score.
MAXIMUM SCORE (For Burger-Maniacs Only)
Once you get 1,000,000 points, the scoring begins at zero again. At
the end of each game you will see a number under the center score.
This tells you how many times you have reached 1,000,000. You may
reach 1,000,000 a total of 255 times...for a possible score of
255,999,950. GOOD LUCK!
