Fire Fly instructions TEST PILOT LOG MARCH 17, 2093: On what started to be the routine high speed test of interplanetary craft Delta 12, a powerplant malfunction caused the craft to skip off the rim of a smmall, black hole. After experiencing level 5 turbulence I became unconsciouss. Upon awaking, I found myself in a time and place unknown to me; the craft having been completely destroyed. The place I am in is inhabited by giant bug-like creatures. Through thought waves, the inhabitants explained that they are part of a culture originally insect-like but now almost entirely mechanical. As their biological body parts began to age beyond effective use they replaced them with mechanical parts. Through their will to survive they eventually crated an entire society composed of machines. During this gradual conversion from living matter to machinery a group of the inhabitants started programming themselves to survive even at the expense of others in the society. They became know as the Bad-Bugs. After the complete metamorphosis to computer controlled minds these bugs began attacking the good creatures. Because of my human reasoning and ability as an experienced test pilot the good bugs have asked for my help. I have been put in command of the best machine-bug on their planet. My task of saving the good bugs should prove extremely difficult since the Bad-Bugs have creature-machines programmed solely for the purpose of stopping me. I will, however, be awarded valuable treasures by the good bugs for every enemy I eliminate. To further complicate my task the good bugs have asked me to rescue the last remaining living creature on their planet, the Pixie. They have warned me to be very cautious when approaching the Pixy since it is constantly guarded by a killer, machine-bee.  GAME FEATURES FIREFLY by Mythiiicon offers tremendous variety in the types of enemies you, as Firefly, will encounter. By continually moving from one screen to the next you are actually playing several games in one. Each enemy moves differently and requires different skills of the game player. The first challenge is to rescue the pixy. While appearing easy, be cautius of the enemy bee. He is very good at determining where you are and his sting is deadly. Should you survive and rescue the pixy, you are faced with the flaming pumpkin. He is so hot that merely touching him will be fatal. He also has an unlimited supply of deadly pumpkin seeds to fire at you. The next screen brings you to the true meanness of the demons. Their touch and cannon shots are to be avoided at all cost. The bats will be waiting should the unlikely occur and you survive. The bad bugs aren't worried, however, since ythey have a sun full of shooting balls of fire ready to ruin your day. If that isn't enough, you can try your luck against the coiled serpents. For the truly talented players who make it through this series of Bad-Bug tricks don't worry, they will all be there again for your next journey through the land of the Bad-Bugs.  GETTING STARTED 1.

Emulation on mobile devices will drain your battery quite fast. I recommend playing while device is plugged into charger.
