 EXTRA NOTES
 -----------
 
 The copy protection system on this game is very very competent!  In fact, when I normally list the
 features of a game, I always sarcastically refer to the protection as 'lame-o-protect', fact is, this 
 protection wasn't lame in the slightest!
 
 I wouldn't say it was the hardest protection to crack, but it had some pretty clever ideas, all of which
 means making it RAWDic compatible is going to be a looooonnnnggg effort!
 
 This game has to rank as one of the BEST shoot-em-ups on the Amiga.... problem is, it's so damned hard
 that I doubt most people could reasonably expect to see the lovely graphics in the later levels.
 
 On an A5oo, this game is throwing loads of stuff around the screen, and it never ONCE drops a frame out of
 50Mhz!!
 
 Not even Factor 5 could manage it with X-Out and Z-Out!
 
 Discover the cheat, and you will agree that Silicon Warriors (what else did they do?) have done an
 amazing job throughout.
 
 NOTES ABOUT THE GAME
 --------------------
 
 On the titlescreen, if you press the 'E' key, will give you a screen to change your weapons setups for
 each level.
 
 On the titlescreen, if you press the 'L' key, will load your previous saved game (including Hiscore)
 
 On the titlescreen, if you press the 'S' ley, will save your game (including Hiscore)
 
 Whilst playing, if the border flashes red, you got onto the hiscore table.  If whilst you are still
 playing it flashes red again, then you just advanced another position on the hiscore table.
 

 Holding down the fire button whilst shooting will select a different weapon, but you will see a counter
 in the centre of the status bar telling you how much time you have that weapon left.
 
 This counter is also used for your enemy count.  It starts off at 99 and counts down for every alien or
 wave of aliens you destroy.  This counter MUST read 0 by the time you have destroyed the end of level
 boss, otherwise you have to play the whole level again!!
 
 SO IS IT HARD?
 --------------
 
 Put it this way, if Carcharodon White Sharks was a boxer and was put in the ring with R-TYPE, R-TYPE2,
 DRAGON BREED, SWIV, NEMESIS, PARADIUS, GUNSTAR HEROES, JIM POWER, XENON, XENON 2, ST.DRAGON, SUPER ALESTE..
 ........ it would kill them all..... its that bloody hard!!! (thats put them all in the ring at the same
 time!!).
 
 
Kindest Regards, Galahad of Fairlight
