Introduction

The object of this game is to challenge and try and beat Brian Jacks in a series of eight physically demanding events. These events have been chosen by Brian to test not only the competitor's strength and stamina, but also their skill and co-ordination.

The instructions have been kept to a minimum. Most of the strategy involved is for you to discover.

Important:: Unless stated otherwise, the power in each event is increased by moving the joystick from side to side, or by tapping the "Z" and "X" keys alternately.

The Events

  1. Swimming
    Every so often, you have to breathe. To achieve this, simply press the fire button or the return key at the right moment. Failure to breathe correctly, when your head is under water for example, will have an unfortunate effect on your swimming ability.
  2. Canoeing
    Correct lane drift by holding stroke longer on one side.
  3. Archery
    The elevation of your shot is changed by pushing the joystick up or down or pressing the "*" key for up, and the "?" key for down.
  4. Cycling
    To change up a gear, move the joystick up or press the "*" key. To change down a gear, move the joystick down or press the "?" key.
  5. 100 meters
  6. Squat thrusts
    Moving the joystick left or tapping the "Z" key will move you in one direction only and similarly, moving the joystick right or tapping the "X" key will move you in the opposite direction.

    You have to do as many squat thrusts as you can in 60 seconds. A squat thrust will not be counted if either your knees do not come up to your elbows or your feet do not cross the line.

  7. Arm Dips
    You have to do as many arm-dips as you can in 60 seconds. An arm dip will not be counted if either your shoulder does not reach the judge's fist or your arms do not fully straighten again.

    To complete one arm dip press the fire button or the return key to start moving down. Move the joystick from side to side or tap the "Z" and "X" keys to arrest this fall and then to push yourself back to the start position.

  8. Football
    The object of this event is to dribble a ball around cones and then to try and score a goal. You have three goes at this, but you only have two minutes in which to do it.

    Movement around the field is by using the keys "Z", "*", "X" and "?". By pressing two keys at once, the number of directions of movement can be increased to eight.

    When in front of the goal aim the cursor by using the joystick of the same keys as above. You will have to be quick.

    Speed of movement around the pitch is increased by pressing the fire button or RETURN.
