Game Introduction

The battle against getting fat. After the monsters are destroyed, they leave behind rings, gems, power-ups, and diet tonic. Power-ups include roller skates to go fast, compressed air to blow monsters up, increased fire power, etc. There are also Data East coins that appear on each level. If a player gets one of these coins, it shoots up to the top of the screen where a fruit machine display rolls over and gives out gems, power-ups, and rings. If the fruit machine reads 777 then there is a bonus round where the players jump on clouds to collect falling gems while avoiding falling food. The game starts with one player selecting an area on a world map, then progress through two levels to get to a boss on the third round. After the boss is destroyed that "world" is complete. Each world has a different theme and boss.

Game Play

Move left or right, jump up, pull down and press Jump to navigate platforms. Fire once at a moster and it will become stationary and wait to be fully blown up or deflate. Once fully inflated, the monster can be jumped on and bounced around the screen destroying other monsters.
