US GAMES M.A.D. U.S. Games Corporation A Subsidiary of The Quaker Oats Company 1515 Wyatt Drive Santa Clara, California 95054 M.A.D. (Missile Attack and Defense) Defend your future civilization's energy supply against waves of devious attack missiles. Your energy stations stand vulnerable...use your ground based Photon Cannon and pit yourself against computer controlled missiles, or, let another player guide the missiles, and do battle head to head. Each wave of missiles becomes more aggressive and intense. Grabe your controller and prepare for a furious battle. [Screen shot of M.A.D. game: your score is up top, missiles fill the sky portion of the screen, your Photon Cannon sits on the bottom center of the screen, and three energy stations each are to the left and right of the cannon.] Set-Up Instructions: 1. Connect the Atari Video Computer System or Sears Video Arcade following the manufacturer's instructions. 2. Install left joystick control for single player, or both for two player game. 3. Insert the cartridge making certain that the power is OFF. 4. Move the POWER switch to ON. 5. Select game of your choice. 6. Push the RESET button to start the game. 7. After the game is over, a new game may be started by pressing the RESET button. Controls: - Use left joystick for single player; both joysticks for two players. - Aim your Photon Cannon by moving joystick left and right. There are seven firing angles. - Shoot by pushing fire button. - In the two player game, move cursor by moving joystick in desired direction. Push and hold down fire button to lock onto the missile, and release fire button to drop missile. Once a missile has been dropped, lock onto another missile for dropping. Game Variations: Game 1 One Player: Computer will lock onto a missile; it will turn white before falling. Game 2 Two Player: Player One has red score and ground; Player Two has green score and ground. Each player completes the same number of rounds (offense and defense). Scoring: Each missile shot down by your Photon Cannon in waves 1 to 6 = 100 points Each missile shot down after wave 6 = 200 points Playing Hints: - Single player game: Watch out for wave four when the ships come from both sides and are all white. You don't get a warning when they are going to drop. Protect yourself by firing first at the lower missiles. - Firing tips: Only two shots can appear on screen at one time, so timing is critical. In early waves use first shot to help aim a more accurate second shot. Don't stop firing during an explosion (even if you need sunglasses!). If a missile is heading for your Photon Cannon, wait until it is almost on top of you before firing. That way you can be more accurate (if you've got the nerve). - Two player game: Defense (firing Photon Cannon): follow the cursor and aim slightly below it to allow for quick falling missiles. - Two player game: Offense (locking onto missiles for dropping): if you can successfully drop a missile on the Photon Cannon, the cannon is inoperable for two seconds, and you have a chance to drop a missile more accurately.

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