Dear Eric, is it a multiplayer game?
I mean, does it support more than two joysticks?

Yes and No...

 

Variants: a) zero players, CPU vs. CPU, b) one player: Player vs. CPU (or CPU vs. Player), c) two players: Player 1 vs. Player 2 (or Player 2 vs. Player 1). One or two joysticks are enough (no multijoy support, no paddles support, etc. just up to two joysticks in port 1 and port 2)...

Otherwise Eric may upload the instructions here...

Thanks!  I see that the video is from the ABBUC version.  The latest software that Eric posted yesterday is much better for those on PAL.  The ABBUC version was a little sluggish on PAL.  

 

I also wanted to acknowledge Playsoft and his great player editor http://www.playsoft.co.uk/aplayed.html

 

Eric and I used the player editor to update characters and create new characters.  We were frantically using it yesterday because we really wanted to get it released on 'H'alloween.

Here is a War Room user's manual.

That said, it's a pretty straight-forward game... shoot the heck out of your opponent before they do the same to you!   :-D    

First player to win 3 rounds wins the entire match.

Okay, thanks! You know, my first favorite 8-bit games were Star Raiders and Star Warrior and I think I am know permanently programmed to assume there may be keyboard use in the game for every game. Anyway, the manuals are always extra fun.

I gave this a play today on my UNO Cart.  It's a pretty fun little game.  I particularly like the character designs and animation.

I discovered the Easter Egg Halloween Candy simply because I didn't read the manual before I started playing the game.
