Model 2468

TIPS AND TRICKS

• DUCKS BITE THE BULLETS
What out! Ducks that you don't hit can fly down from the bottom row to eat ten of your bullets!
Special Strategy: Make sure you use up at least eight bullets before hitting the Extra-Bullet target. Your bullet supply can never show more than 40 bullets.

• PIPE DREAMS
Eight on-target hits clear the pipes from the screen. Hit the same color pipes with the two consecutive shots and you get four time the pipe score value.
Special Strategy: Knock out the pipes early in the game, while avoiding the moving targets. If the pipes remain in view while you are hitting moving targets, ducks, ducks and more ducks start coming out!

• WIN SOME - LOSE SOME
Score extra points or bullets by hitting the plus-minus target when the plus sign shows. But look out! If the minus-sign is showing when the target is hit, the points or bullets are subtracted from your score or bullet supply.

• PROGRAMMER CREDIT:
Holding Fire and power on the Atari 2600. A dot will appear in the top row of targets. Shoot that dot before it turns into a duck to display the message "Programmed by S. Kitchen", in reference to Steve Kitchen.
