MozPong v1.0.5 Manual Translation: Junko Hara

=========================================================================

What is MozPong?
It's a game for Macintosh. Easy to play, hard to quit! But don't worry,
there is a pause command.

System Requirements:
68040 processor or faster (Power Macintosh recommended), System 7.1 or higher
Hardware with 640x480 dots, 256 colors
2.5MB of RAM

How to Play:
Manipulate "MozMoz-kun" by moving mouse and hit "Butasan" and crack all "Eggs"

Rules:
Open New Game and MozMoz-kun appears. Butasan starts moving right and left
when MozMoz-kun moves to the center. Click the mouse button and Butasan
jumps into the same direction.

White, yellow and green Eggs crack when Butasan hits once. Blue needs to be
hit twice, red needs three times. Wooden eggs don't crack.

"Baby Chick" comes out of an Egg when it cracks. You get 10 points when
MozMoz-kun catches a Baby Chick. Points increase 20, 30, 40. . . up to 100
as MozMoz-kun catches Baby Chick continuously.

When MozMoz-kun catches 12 Baby Chicks, a "Baby Chick Roulette" starts
turning and you will get points as the roulette stops.

*1k=1,000 points, 5k=5,000 points, 10k=10,000 points
*star=one EXTRA lamp. 5 EXTRA lamps turns into a Butasan
*other=Find out by yourself.
--------------------------------------------------------
Lighted EXTRA lamp will be carried to the next level.

Another Butasan appears when MozMoz-kun cracks a rainbow Egg. Points you
get are in proportion to the number of Butasan that MozMoz-kun is playing
with.

Hit the "Bomb" and blast cracks Eggs near by.

Game is over when MozMoz-kun drops all three Butasans.

You get one Butasan with every 100,000 points.

"Josephine" (green dinosaur) appears periodically.

When MozMoz-kun stands in front of Josephine, she hugs him and he can't
move for a while.

Josephine falls when Butasan drops on her. MozMoz-kun can kick her out by
crossing over her while she's overturned(100 points).

MozMoz-kun will meat "The King of Eggs" when he reaches the 32nd level.
