Game 1: The squeeze bars randomly grow in from both sides of the room. You must shoot them back and attempt to get out of the room. The bars will begin moving faster and faster as time goes on. If you succeed in leaving the first room, you enter the next room with faster growing bars.

Game 2: The squeeze bars only grow-in from one wall. The other wall is stationary. The object is to turn all the moving color bars white by shooting them all the way back. When this happens, the screen automatically clears and you are in the next room. As the game becomes faster, it is less desirable to stay in the room, and it becomes harder to turn all the bars white.

Game 3: Once again, the squeeze bars grow-in from only one wall, but the other wall now begins to move in on you. Shooting back the growing bars rolls up the score. Shooting back the flashing bars rolls up bonus points. As the game goes on, it becomes faster. The faster it is, the harder it becomes to shoot a pathway out.

Game 4: is identical to Game 1 except there are twice as many horizontal color bars.

Game 5: is identical to Game 2 except there are twice as many horizontal color bars.

Game 6: is identical to Game 3 except there are twice as many horizontal color bars.

* The longer your shot, the more time available for the walls to move in on you. Stand as close as possible to the advancing bars so your gun will fire more frequently, but be careful!

* Try to completely shoot away one wall of bars first and then reverse to the opposite wall. Remember, if you clear away all bars (both sides) you gain an extra turn (star - 3 maximum).

* Change the shooting angle as seldom as possible as this takes up time allowing the bars to advance. Now get out there and blast away those walls or you'll be trying to hotfoot your way to freedom!
