THE GAME
--------
It was love on first sight. Barely 20 years old she stood in the crowd,
drawing all the looks in her breathtaking yellow designerdress. From that
moment you didn't care for any other, you just had eyes for her. You just
knew she would soon be yours.

But you still can't afford her, so you will simply take her tonight.
Silently you sneak to her room and cautiously open the door. Then you see
her, that sleek italian! You will brush aside everything that stands between
you and her and then you will flee with her, with this dream of a ...used
sports car!

Move all the other cars out of the way to steal your dream car out of the lot.


PLAYING THE GAME
----------------
Jammed consists of 600 puzzles which are organized in 6 difficulty levels
of 100 puzzles each. With the joystick you can move the cursor and the
firebutton moves the selected car in the indicated direction.


SWITCHES
--------
RESET            = restart puzzle
SELECT           = select level
FIRE+SELECT      = select random puzzle in current level
LEFT DIFFICULTY  = cursor mode
RIGHT DIFFICULTY = switch between NTSC and PAL settings


DISPLAY
-------
The counter on the left hand displays the number of moves. It starts with
the minimally required number of moves in the negative and increases.
If the level ends with the counter displaying 00, the puzzle is solved
perfectly.

The counter on the right hand indicates the current puzzle (0..599).
The first digit also signifies the level of difficulty (0..5).


ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
---------------
JAMMED is based on the board game Rush Hour from Binary Arts.
