Flashing Food Ball: IMMEDIATE END OF SPECIAL & LOSS OF 1 TURN
He's back! Peter Pepper, that brave chef who will face any ordeal
to get the lunch done, has taken on the task of short order cook at
Unfortunately, there's some Rotten Food in the diner (probably
spoiled when it was still Baby Food) -- Hot Dogs, Cherries, Bananas,
and their leader Mugsy, the Mug o' Root Beer!
The Rotten Food has thrown lunch all over the diner -- Meatballs,
Lettuce Heads, Rice, Mashed Potatoes, and Macaroni are everywhere!
Peter Pepper has to get lunch back on the plate before the Rotten
Food gets HIM!
STARTING THE GAME
With the POWER switch OFF, insert the cartridge. Turn the POWER
switch ON, press RESET, and press the DISC. Select 1 or 2 players and
the difficulty level (1 through 4, 4 being hardest).
If you are playing a 2 player game, BOTH players must choose a
difficulty level (Player 1 using the left hand controller, Player 2
using the right hand controller). The two difficulty levels do not have
to be the same.
You control Peter Pepper by pressing the hand controller DISC.
Run around Ray's Diner, kicking Food Balls down the ramps to the
plate at the bottom of the screen. Avoid the Rotten Food -- Hot Dogs,
Bananas, Cherries, and Mugsy. If they catch you, your turn is over!
Save yourself by squashing them under rolling Food Balls, shaking
pepper on them, or running away! And watch your step! In some
parts of the diner, the floor is constantly moving, opening up holes
that you might fall through (ending your turn) or that might whisk
you -- or Rotten Food -- up and down. When you've kicked all the
Food Balls onto the plate, you do the Peter Pepper victory wave and
the game continues in a different part of the diner, harder than
before! Complete four plates and go to the Blue Plate Special -- an
all-you-can-eat bonus round!
Your score appears at the top center of the screen.
Food Balls (red Meatballs, green Lettuce Heads, white Rice, tan
Mashed Potatoes, and yellow Macaroni) are scattered throughout the
diner. Walk into one to kick it -- BAM! -- 50 points. The Food Ball
will roll across the floor, down ramps, and over ledges. If it's close
enough to the bottom of the screen, it will roll right onto the plate.
You have to wait till the Food Ball stops rolling before you can kick
If a piece of Rotten Food gets in the way of a rolling Food Ball,
SQUISH! -- good-bye Rotten Food, hello 500 points! Squash more than
one piece of Rotten Food with the same roll and the points multiply
-- 1,000 points (abbreviated 1K), 2,000 points (2K), up to 8,000
There are always five pieces of Rotten Food in the diner. After you
squash one, it will get up after a moment and start chasing you
Sometimes you just can't avoid Rotten Food -- that's why you're
carrying pepper! One shake of pepper momentarily stops Rotten Food
in its tracks, giving you a chance to get away! It's safe to touch
Rotten Food when it's stopped, but be careful! It will start moving
again at any second!
To shake pepper, press any SIDE BUTTON on the hand controller.
Peppering takes a little practice -- the pepper sprays ONLY in the
direction you are facing. If Rotten Food is chasing you, you will have
to TURN AROUND to pepper it.
A well-timed shake of pepper can stop more than one piece of
Use your pepper carefully. You start the game with only five
shakes worth, although you can get more by picking up Side Orders.
The number of peppers you have left is shown by the number in the
upper right corner.
As the plate fills at the bottom, Side Orders will appear in the
diner -- Ice Cream Sundaes, Cans of Pop, and Hamburger Buns. Pick
up a side order for 250 points and an extra shake of pepper! And the
more Side Orders you pick up, the more Food Balls will appear in the
Blue Plate Special bonus round!
You start the game with five turns. Your turn ends when you fall
through the floor or are caught by Rotten Food. The number of turns
you have left is displayed in the upper left corner of the screen.
You earn an extra turn each time you score 20,000 points.
With two players, you alternate turns. Player 1 uses the left hand
controller, Player 2 uses the right.
Since players can earn extra turns, one player may run out of
turns before the other one ("Player 1 GAME OVER!"). The other
player keeps playing for however many turns are left.
You can pause the game by pressing the 1 and 9 on either hand
controller at the same time. The screen will go black. Press any key
or the DISC to resume play.
The game ends when both players run out of turns. Press any key
or the DISC to start a new game.
Each time you complete a plate, you move to a different part of
the diner and the game play becomes harder. The level you are on is
shown by the number in the lower right corner.
THE BLUE PLATE SPECIAL
Every time you fill four plates (finish four game screens) you play
the Blue Plate Special bonus round! Food Balls start raining across the
screen -- all for you! Each one you eat (just run into it) is worth 1000
points! The number of Food Balls that appear is determined by how
well you did picking up Side Orders on the previous four screens.
Just one warning: DON'T EAT THE FLASHING FOOD BALLS! If a
flashing Food Ball hits you, not only is the Blue Plate Special over,
you LOSE A TURN! If you don't have any more turns left, THE GAME
