HOW TO PLAY
After a moment's delay, the thief automatically enters the vault. The
escape doors lock shut! He can't go through either escape door until
all the gold coins are picked up. The four police officers begin to
chase him down!
Press the DISC on your Hand Controller to move the thief around the
corridors. Press the Disc edge in the direction you want him to go.
The thief can dodge police by running through the open side doors.
When he exits through one side, he quickly enters on the other side.
Be careful! Don't run smack into a policeman on the other side!
NOTE: There are four side doors, but only TWO are open at a time!
Sometimes the top two are open, and sometimes the bottom two are
open. This changes at random so watch out.
Your thief picks up gold coins as he runs. Once the thief has gotten all
the gold coins, run him through he top or bottom escape door! You
foiled the cops! Play begins again with a whole new set of gold coins
to pick up! Points are mounting!
Sometimes "treasures" appear in the center of the screen. You have
to land on these fast...they only appear for a short time!
As the thief collides with police, he's "caught"! Action stops and your
next thief enters the vault.
The game ends when all your thieves are "caught". Score shows.
Reset the game and start again.
RULES OF THE CHASE
LOCK DOORS: Automatic doors are constantly locking and unlocking in
the vault. They are solid green when locked and disappear when
unlocked. Police and the thief can't get through these doors until they
unlock and disappear.
Give the cops the slip by locking doors behind you! To do this, press
any LOCK DOOR (side) button on the Hand Controller, and the last
door the thief came through locks shut! These doors are red. You can
only lock two doors at a time. After a few seconds, the doors
automatically unlock. Try not to run into any door...you might stick to
Doors lock horizontally or vertically at the "light" lines in the
THE THIEVES: You start with 5 thieves. There is only one in the vault
at a time. Maneuver the thief and try to give cops the slip!
After one thief is caught, another enters the vault. The number of
thieves you have left shows on the screen. When your last thief is
caught, the jig is up, and the game ends!
When you rack up 20,000 points, you get another thief!
THE POLICE: Four police officers are constantly tailing the thief!
Sometimes you can run right through one. But you never know when
this will happen!
THE MONEY: There are gold coins throughout the vault. Pick them up
and your scores rises. When the cash bag or one of the ten treasures
appears on the screen, run over it quickly! When the thief grabs the
loot, the screen shows how many points you got.
* You can lock the thief behind doors to keep the cops away. Hope
they move on and you can escape when the door unlocks!
* The police can come through the open side doors too...so don't stay
around these areas!
* You can set the speed for the next game and at the same time keep
the high score from the last game. Do this at the end of game by
pressing 1, 2 or 3 for the slow speeds or press any LOCK DOOR (side)
button for fastest speed. [NOTE: a bug in the program keeps this from
working properly. Pressing the LOCK DOOR button will replay the
game at the SAME speed instead of FASTEST. There is no way to go
from a slower speed to the fastest while keeping the high score.]
* When the police are tailing close in any of the four corners, try to
trap him in the corner by locking a door behind and in front of him.

end of each game you will see a number under the center score.
[NOTE: A bug in the program keeps this number from showing up in
a one-player game.] This tells you how many times you have reached
300,000. You can reach 300,000 a total of 200 times...for a possible
score of 60 million! Good luck!
