Instructions - Rick Dangerous

             This is the demo of the newer version of Rick Dangerous, the
     3rd level seemed to prevent many players from progressing further into
     the game. The senario stays basically the same with the hero, Rick,
     part-time explorer and stamp collector, searching for the Goolu tribe
     when he crashed his plane in the Amazon. He was later captured by this
     tribe and imprisoned in their temple from where he must now escape.
     Armed only with a six-shooter, a fistfull of dynamite and a sharp
     stick, Rick works his way through the temple collecting treasure for
     points and either avoiding or destroying the Goolu guards. Most of the
     gaurds follow strict patrol paths, so it's often just a timing
     problem, but some guards who 'home in' on Rick can be a little
     trickier to dispose of.

             Nothing can be taken for granted on the trek through the
     temple. Get too close to some blocks and nasty spikes spring out; move
     too slowly along a platform and nasty stone haeds spit spears; jump
     too late or early over a chasm and you'll fall to the bottom of a
     spike covered pit.

             This demo only contains several screens available to the user
     but it gives a fair representation on how good the game actually is.
     When you reach the last screen you will be told the demo is ended and
     the game will finish, you can still however play the game again.
