-

The Empire's revenge has begun!  Right now an army of Imperial Walkers is
marching toward the Rebels' power generator on the Ice Planet Hoth.  If
they reach it, the entire Rebel base will blow sky high!  To stop them, the
Rebels must rely on their missile-firing Snowspeeders.  The Snowspeeders
may be tiny (compared to the gigantic Imperial Walkers) but they're quick
and agile.  And in the hands of a skillful commander, they can destroy the
mighty Walkers!

So climb into your Snowspeeder and be prepared to meet the first of your
deadly enemies!


OBJECT
------

The object of the game is to destroy as many of the Imperial Walkers as you
can before they reach the power generator at the end of the battlefield -
or before the Imperial Walkers destroy your fleet of Snowspeeders.


SETTING THE CONSOLE CONTROLS
----------------------------

1. To select a game number (see Game Selection Box), press down on the GAME
   SELECT switch.  To quickly change the number, hold down both the GAME
   SELECT and GAME RESET switches at the same time.  The game number will
   appear at the bottom of the screen.

2. Press down on the GAME RESET switch - and you're ready to start the
   action.

3. Set the DIFFICULTY switch:
   Position A - The landing pad where you repair your snowspeeder is made
                smaller.
   Position B - The landing pad is made larger.

   In a one-player game, use the left DIFFICULTY switch.  In a two-player
game, the 1st player uses the left DIFFICULTY switch and the 2nd player
uses the right DIFFICULTY switch.


THE JOYSTICK CONTROLLERS
------------------------

Make sure you plug the joystick controllers firmly into the jacks at the
back of your video game system.  Use the LEFT controller jack for
one-player games.

Use the Joystick to fly your Snowspeeder.  Snowspeeders can fly left,
right, up, and down.  Your Snowspeeder can accelerate in all four
directions, too.  To slow it down, simply change directions.  Press the red
button to fire your missiles.
