TIPS AND TRICKS

TIPS FROM GARRY KITCHEN, DESIGNER OF KEYSTONE KAPERS.
Garry is a top-notch designer with a great variety of interests. Besides playing video games, Garry likes to read fiction and draw with pencil and charcoal. He's a natural at ping-pong, too, and loves to travel. We're glad he found his way to Activision.

"Hi gang. I'll begin by saying one thing: DON'T GET STUCK ON THE ROOF!! Because - surprise! - you can't get back down! To avoid this embarrassing predicament, stay behind the Krook and don't go to the roof until he's up there."

"As your score rises, the beachballs bounce higher. Forget about trying to jump over them. Instead, DUCK! Also, the biplanes and shopping carts start coming in waves, so learn their rhythms and do the 'Keystone Strut'. To the tune of the shopping carts it's, 'Jump... run two steps... Jump... run two steps.. etc.' To the biplane beat it's, 'Duck... run three steps... duck... run three steps...etc.' Learn to adjust to changing rhythms"

"And, to save yourself a few steps, have Kelly JUMP onto the escalators. He'll be halfway up already. Now, go out and get those guys! And, when you take a break, write to me. I want a FULL report!"
