The object of Tunnel Runner is to successfully escape from an endless series of colorful, complex, three-dimensional mazes called Runs. To do this you must first find the key hidden in each Run. While in a Run, points are scored for every new Room you enter. Bonus points are awarded based on how long it takes you to escape from each Run.
Tunnel Runner is Balaska's first game for CBS Electronics.
Keep your ears open! The more familiar you become with each Maze Zot's characteristic sound, the better you'll be at making quick decisions to run or wait without having to check the Map.
Learn to run and turn without stopping. Turn into a corner in advance of actually coming to the intersection and push up on the Joystick immediately after making the turn. You'll be able to keep up your momentum.
Don't spend too much time staring at the Map. Remember that the maze Zots are constantly in motion and you're prevented from moving as long as the Map is on the screen.
