You have three lives during which you have to successfully complete the game. During the movement, the score rising non-stop. After you finished the framed square you get a extra points. As with most ZX81 games, moving of your charachter is difficult and imprecise.

At any time, you can interrupt the game by pressing the BREAK button and then typing GOTO 290 to save the High Scores.
