 For the ones who don't have the documentation, a quick key guide
 (thanks Luca for providing it)

 Arrow keys = move, jump, crouch
 Shift = shoot, pick-up objects, append, talk
 Space bar = extract pistol
 Return = force field (with belt), skip Game Over countdown
 F1 = inventory (Pause) and select object
 F8, F9, F10 = various zoom levels (mouse to center)
 CTRL+C = 3D in-game sequences on/off
 CTRL+G = Auto zoom on/off
 SHIFT+RETURN+SPACE+F1 = quit to main menu

Note:
 A 2nd slave will be installed too, it requires less memory than the default
 slave (512 KB ChipMem/540 KB OtherMem), but zoom option is disabled and some
 stuff will be allocated in ChipMem instead of FastMem. It's specially designed
 for low memory system (~1.5 MB free).
