Phaser Strike Instructions

(Copied directly from original game manual)

Try to hit as many targets as you can.

1. Slide ON/OFF switch up to ON. The option selection screen appears. (Simulator starts on the option selection screen - see NOTE below)
2. Press SIZE key to select the width of the target (4, 3, 2, 1, C). Note: C stands for changeable. Your targets will be of different lengths randomly selected by the computer.
3. Press SPEED key to select the speed (Fast, Slow or Changeable) of the target. Note: With C, the speed of each target is randomly selected by the computer.
4. Press TARGETS key to select the number of ships to be sent against you. (The number (1-9) you chose is multiplied by ten to give you the total of targets that will flash across the screen.)
5. Press GO to start the game - the first target will appear.
6. Try to hit the target with your phaser cannon. Press the bottom row of arrow keys to fire your phasers.
7. The left arrow shoots a missile diagonally across the screen to the upper right corner. The middle arrow shoots a missile straight up. The right arrow shoots the missile diagonally to the upper left corner of the screen.
8. You'll hear a signal when you score a hit. (There is no reaction when you miss a target.) (Simulator has no sound - see below)
9. After all your targets have been launched, your score will appear on the screen.
10. To start a new game, press GO to choose your options.
11. Press GO again to begin launching the next set of targets.

Remember to turn the power off when not playing the game.

NOTE: The game's original on/off switch is not simulated - the simulator is always "on". To simulate the effect of turning the game off and back on (to abandon a game that's not going well), use the browser's refresh button. Also, the simulator does not currently feature sound, so you will not hear a signal when you hit a target.

To play the game using the keyboard instead of the mouse, press Tab until the GO button has focus. Press Enter to fire the GO button and start the game, and then use the left, up and right arrow keys to fire the phaser guns.
