M Network Burgertime for your Atari 2600 Game System Instructions (for 1 or 2 players) Build beautiful burgers by dropping buns and patties onto a plate. Dodge horrible hot dogs. Defy brawling bread sticks. Pepper enormous eggs and charging cheese. Score points by squashing those nasties with a falling bun. Build all the burgers and you move on to the next maze. Get too close to a nasty, though, and it's back to Burger School for you in' short order. The Game You move your chef around the maze in a frantic attempt to build hamburgers before the nasties converge on you. Move across the top of the burger ingredients and they will drop a level. Work all the ingredients to the bottom and you'll move on to the next maze. Score points by dropping an ingredient, squashing nasties, or giving them a ride down on a falling ingredient. Dust a nasty with some pepper and he'll stop in his tracks. If a nasty touches him, your chef is cooked. So watch out! Play alone or challenge a friend. Highest score wins. Controllers Use your left joystick controller to control the direction of your chef. Be sure your controller cable is securely plugged into the back of your game console. Hold the controller so the red pepper (FIRE) button is to your upper left. *Note: Right hand controller is not used in this game. Difficulty Switches Level of Difficulty does not change. The switch on the right (near the right controller cable) determines the number of players. Switch position A is for two players. Switch position B is for a one player game. In switch Position A, the two players take turns using the left controller. When one player loses his chef, the other player takes over the controller. The switch on the left may be used to freeze the action by sliding it to position A. Position B returns the game to the action from the point at which you stopped it. Roll up your sleeves..put on your hat..grab some pepper... and fire up your grill. Action! To start the game, press reset switch. Be ready because the game starts right away. The Chef. You control the chef, Peter Pepper. Move him up ladders and across planks using the joystick. Move your chef completely across a bun or other ingredients and it drops one level. You rack up 50 points. You start with 5 chefs, but only one can be used at a time. For every 10,000 points scored, you get an extra chef. Nasties and Mazes: Hot Dogs, eggs, bread sticks, and cheese chase your chef wherever he goes in the maze. If they catch him, the round is over. All of the nasties get quicker as you go along. There are five mazes contructed of ladders planks. When you successfully build all the hamburgers in one maze, you move on to the next maze. When all five mazes have been completed, you start over again with the first maze. For more Points: Drop the ingredients on top of the nasties. You will get 200 points for each hot dog or bread stick that you squash. A squashed egg or hunk of chesse is worth 100 points. For even more points, tempt the nasties out onto a bun and then drop it by stepping off. The bun will drop two levels. You score 500 points for each nasty you drop. After a few seconds, dropped or squashed nasties return from the side of the screen. And a pinch of pepper. Pepper may be used to temporarily stun nasties if you are trapped. This tactic allows you to move out of corners unharmed. You can only throw pepper in front of you. Make sure the chef is facing the nasty you want to pepper by using the joytsick first. You start with 5 pinches of pepper which are displayed under and to the left of the score. (See diagram.) You can earn extra pinches of pepper by gobbling French fries, ice cream, or coffee. You get 500 points and a pinch of pepper for each item gobbled. The chef will always stop while he throws pepper. You can move him as soon as he is finished peppering the nasty. Score display: The running score is tallied in the top center portion og the screen. But, anytime you squash a nasty or give one a ride down, the point value will be displayed briefly instead of the score. For two player games, only the score of the player currently controlling the chief is displayed. At the end of the game the display alternates showing each score and designates whether it belongs to player #1 (pink) or player #2 (blue) The maximum score for M Network's Burgetime is 999,950. If you can get close, you are a certified burger-maniac. Scoring Score Action ------------------------------- 50 Points Knocking a hamburger part from a horizontal plank 100 Points Squashing an egg or chesse with a falling hamburger part 200 Points Squashing a hot dog or bread stick with a falling hamburger part 500 Points For each nasty who takes a ride on a falling hamburger part 500 Points Gobbling one of the "pinch of pepper" prizes (Ice Cream, French Fries, or Coffee) Winning Tips -Save Pepper for the for the times you need it most. Don't waste it on nasties that are easily avoided. -Try to get the highest point value for each hamburger part that you drop. Try qsquashing a nasty! Better yet give him a fast ride down on a falling bun. - Remember, your chef stops while he peppers a nasty. Don't get blind sided by a marauding bread stick while you're busy peppering a hot dog. -Keep away from the corners after squashing a nasty or giving him a ride. The same nasty could return in that corner and could run right smack into your chef.
Emulation on mobile devices will drain your battery quite fast. I recommend playing while device is plugged into charger.
