THIS DISK IS NOT P.D.
When you don't know what to boot,
Try out Fluffies, 'cos they're cute!
Written and designed by Howard Tilley
Sound and graphics by Carl Tilley.
Wait for the titles to change and see
the credits page and highscores.
Fluffies will run on any Atari ST with
at least 1 Megabyte of RAM. It's a
joystick only game, unless you like the
idea of using the mouse as some sort of
temporary weapon against marauding
Left/Right Fluffy moves left/right.

Up 3 times Fluffy does a super jump
consecutively (up only)
Up left/Right Diagonal jumps.
Fire button Uses a teleport star,if
you've got one.

Keyboard: Undo Resets level but loses
Guide the blue fluffy creature (aka:
The Fluffy) through the many levels in
order to rescue your Girl Fluffy (how
original!) who just happens to have got
lost in the many castles and forests in
Fluffy Land. (Don't like to break the
mould of millions of centuries of Top

After pressing fire to start you will
see the options page where you can
select the difficulty, sound
preferences and game mode (practice
level or normal game).
Difficulty of Expert gives you only
two lives and you suffer more damage
for each wound, but you earn more bonus
when you complete each level.
Traps and puzzles.
There are no aliens or enemies in this
game, however, similar to Rick Slightly
Dangerous, there are traps and pitfalls
and generally lots of puzzles in order
to test your mental and dexerity to
well beyond the level of mental cruelty
the poor woman in the Bendicks Mints
advert went through when her husband
didn't buy a particular brand of mints.
Such traps are there for you to find
out for yourself!
At the bottom of the screen is the
familiar scoreboard, comprising of
Score Lives, Energy, and any objects
you have picked up.
Objects to find.
Grey keys open doors.
Green keys open the exit door.
Fruit gives points and a little bit
of extra energy.
Small P's gives limited protection.
Large P's gives longer protection.
Small S's give 3 SUPER super jumps.
Small and large E's give energy.
Collect these and press fire to use
one. It will teleport the fluffy to a
diagonal extreme, according to the
direction he faces. If you wait for
about 5 seconds after collecting one,
without moving, then you will see a
crosshair appear. This tells you where
you would appear if you use a star at
that point. Be aware that the crosshair
does not update with the screen so it
may not be totally accurate.
Push down after collecting one and if
you face water or lava then it will
purify the ground and dry up the liquid
It only lasts for 4 squares.
There are many secret jewels ( upto 6)
on each level, but Fluffy must make a
leap of faith to find them! - They are
invisible. Don't worry, you don't have
to find them, and some are in easy to
find places. The more you find the more
points you score.
Collect the green key and then the
exit door will open allowing Fluffy to
then exit the level.
After completing a level you will earn
a bonus according the current level,
your health, speed, and technique. You
will also earn points for every secret
jewel you find.
Technique is based on :
1. Number of lives lost that level.
2. Number of Energy units lost that
3. Time of level completion.
4. Whether you found all the secret
jewels or not.
Each factor for the level completion is
is multiplied by a number and the total
is given as a bonus. This multiplier is
based on the level of difficulty the
player selected on the options page!!
So the player with the lights on but
nobody home and selects Expert, will
earn more points but suffer more damage
and only have 2 lives.
This is my sixth published program.

Darklyte - Strategy (Space crusade)
Stragegy - Puzzle (Puzznic)
Demon - RPG (Dungeon master)
