[HOW TO PLAY]_________________________________________________________________

1. Spray repeatedly to get Donkey Kong up to the top of the vines and to zap
   the bees.

2. A power spray can is attached to the vine.  Spray Donkey Kong up to where
   the power spray can is attached and it will drop down to where Stanley can
   pick it up.  USe it when Stanley is in trouble and needs to fight back.

   * The effects of the power spray wear off after some time.

3. The score for zapping a bee depends on the type of attack the bee makes.
   Queen Buzzbees must be zapped twice.  In the end, they explode and scatter
   all over the place so you better be careful not to get hit by them.

4. The bees come to get the flowers at the bottom of the screen.  Zap them
   before they return to their nest.  Successfully guarded flowers count as
   bonus points.

                                                                      [Page 5]

5. "Creepies" slowly come down from the palm trees to attack.  Their movements
   are slow, but they quickly revive after being sprayed.  Chase back the one
   in the trees, and knock out the ones on the floor.  When a creepy is
   knocked out, you can safely walk past it.

6. There are three different rounds.  After round three, you go back to round

(Not shown caption quote)
* Depending on the timing of your sprays, the vines in the center of the
  screen may disappear, but this does not effect the game.


Creepy the Snake (Big eyed looking worm)
Beespy (Small bee)
Buzzbee (Fatter bee)
Stanley (Your character)
Donkey Kong (Big ape on the vines)

                                                                      [Page 6]


* Successfully guarded flowers: Bonus = 500 pts. x remaining number of flowers
  However, if all five flowers are successfully guarded, you get a perfect
  score of 3,000 pts.
* Time bonus points.
  Any time left at the end of the round is added to your score.
  * Remember, of course, the long the round lasts, the less time is left at
    the end.

Guards (two) - 1,000 pts.
Guard (one) - 700 pts.
Buzzbee with a flower - 400 pts.
Beespy - 400 pts.
Attacker - 200 pts.
Buzzbee - 100 pts.

* As the rounds advance other pesky bugs also appear.

Extra points

When the score goes over 50,000 pts., you get an extra Stanley.

                                                                      [Page 7]


Stanley dies if:
* Stanley is hit by a bee.
* Stanley is hit by a creepy.
* Stanley is hit by a dart thrown by a buzzbee.
* Donkey Kong drops to the floor.
* Stanley is hit by a coconut thrown by Donkey Kong.
* The time runs down to 0 (zero).
