her. But be careful - each island is guarded by an enormous creature that's
Fortunately, you have a little help. There are five kinds of friendly
dinosaurs waiting to give you a lift. They're stuck in eggs that you'll need
to crack open!
Hidden eggs are scattered all over the islands. By finding and breaking them
open, you might get a bonus, or even a secret way to the next island! Just
don't eat the eggplant...
So hop on one of your dinosaur pals, and ride your way to Jeannie's

How To Play
You, as Master Higgins, must explore 8 islands, and defeat 9 monsters to
rescue Jeannie Jungle. On each island, there are many areas ot discover.
Energy: When you begin each area, you have a full Energy Bar. It is
displayed on the top of the screen between your score and the number of
lives you have left. The Energy Bar will continuously go down as you play.
To keep it full, you must eat fruits, drink milk or eat meat. Fruit appears
regularly in almost every area. You will receive points at the end of each
area based on how much energy you have.
Eggs: When you first start playing, you won't have any weapons or items. But
as you explore the islands, you'll find eggs that might contain weapons or
items. To open an egg, jump on it. If you have a weapon, you can also shoot
an egg to open it. Eggs can contain several different items, such as milk
bottles, axes, boomerangs, time-stops, dinosaurs, and even keys that lead to
bonus rounds and secret rooms!
There are also hidden eggs in every island. To try to find a hidden egg,
shoot your axe, boomerang or shoot with the dinosaurs. If you hear a sound
that sounds like you just hit an enemy,and you also see your "shots"
disappear in mid-air, go to that spot and jump. When you jump, you should
make an egg appear. You can break the egg open as usual.
Hint: Shooting birds can make some of them drop eggs!
