Hat Trick © 1987 Atari Corp.
What a night for a hockey game! After weeks of intensive training on the ice, you're finally at the face-off, waiting for the starting whistle. As the puck slides across the smooth, icy surface, you take it at center ice, managing to break over the blue line to your opponent's right. Whoooossh. What reflexes! What speed!
The spray of the ice on your face momentarily blinds you, but you continue to skate furiously, weaving towards the opposing goal. You can feel your challenger's hot breath on the back of your neck, as the distance between you grows smaller and smaller. But before he can manage to steal the puck, you swing your stick and whack -- it's a slapshot! The point is yours!
Get three goals in a game, and it's a hat trick!
Don't forget your goalie! If your opponent nears your goal, move the joystick handle up or down so your goalie can block the puck.
If you bump into your opponent, you'll bounce off each other. However, if your sticks get locked together, you can break the lock by moving past each other.
Whenever you let go of the joystick, you'll automatically face the opposing goal. That way you won't accidentally push the puck into your goal and give your opponent a free point!
