Another winner from Kenneth Kalish (Author of Phantom Slayer, Escape and Invader's Revenge). Danger Ranger must collect ten keys from the Chamber of Pasha, whilst warding off the Floating Urns, Radioactive Bats and Roving Eyes. Then he must face the Acid Chamber to collect all the Treasure Chests, avoiding not only the drops of acid, but shooting the four demons which guard the chamber. Five Levels of Play. Sound Effects. High speed arcade action game. Full colour graphics. Machine code. Joystick Required.
Danger Ranger must collect all ten keys (located at the ends of each platform) to complete the first stage of the game. To do this he just needs to walk over the key. Listen for the sound which will tell you he has picked it up.
He must shoot or avoid the Floating Urns, Radioactive Belts and Roving Eyes. To fire his laser gun at them, press FIRE and Danger Ranger will fire in the direction he is facing. The centre of the bottom platform will propel him back to the top of the screen if he hasn't collected all ten keys. He may jump the spaces between platforms or fall through them.
Drops of deadly acid fall from the ceiling and rise from the floor. Danger Ranger's task is to pick up the Treasure Chests, whilst avoiding the acid. Be sure you are far enough to the right to get them (Listen for the sound!).
The chamber is also guarded by four demons, which must be shot before he can get past them to the next level. As the game proceeds, more shots are required to kill them.
Use the joystick to move left and right and to jump and duck (to avoid being shot).
R - Return to the start of the game.
To start the game, make sure your joystick is connected to the right joystick port and press FIRE during the title page or demonstration screen.
After the title page, you will be requested to enter the skill level, which can be any number from 1 to 5. This will keep returning to the title page until a number is entered. If you wish to practice, press P. This will enable you to go through all levels of play without being 'killed'.
The figure in the top right corner shows your current score. The right in the top left shows the current High Score. The first centre figure shows the current level of play, the second the number of men left.
When the game begins, you must select the colour screen you wish to play on.
1 - Black, 2 - Buff, 3 - Green
To change the colour you must reload the program.
