JUST ANOTHER DAY IN JEMMERVILLE
You're witnessing a typical sparkling, summer morning in downtown Jemmerville.
Both suns have risen over the planet Centrus, where summer, of course, is the
only season. And it is here, on the island's precious gem-deposits are
talked about throughout the Triangulum galaxy, and they're the envy of almost
every life-form in this corner of the universe.
Julius was asleep in his terraineum when the holographic intercom sprayed out
its message. It was the president of Domoloco and Sons inc.: "Julius we have
a serious situation. The governor has reported that 7 alien towers have
surronded the island. If one more appears, the island will be completely
enclosed. The naviports are almost cut off. The hyperfreighters are
trapped... nothing is getting in or out."
"I've given the governor my personal promise that Domoloco and Sons would
handle these towers... No one knows what they are or where they came from but
I want them demolished! Now that's not too difficult a mission, is it?"
Julius slowly opened his eyes and found that the president's personal hologram
- not the one of his secretary - was still activated: "Wake up, Julius, and
topple that tower!"
As Julius started to say something, the hologram began to dissolve as quickly
as it had appeared.

TAKING ON THE TOWERS
There are 8 towers to be demolished before Julius can return to his Sunday
snooze. You must guide Julius through to the top of each tower so he can
detonate his D-Bomb (Destructo Bomb) and demolish the tower. When Julius
succeeds at demolishing a tower, he is awarded bonus points for his speed and
Your mission begins with Julius located at the bottom of the first tower.
Use the LEFT or RIGHT buttons to move Julius from ledge to ledge. (Be
careful: some ledges are very weak, and they may crumble as you walk onto
them). When you arrive in front of a doorway, press UP, and Julius will walk
through to the opposite side of the tower. If Julius must re-enter the tower,
press UP again.
Julius makes his way up the tower by walking up stairways and by using the
elevators. He can walk up the steps without you making him jump, but the
powerful gravitational field of Centrus may pull him down the stairway if he
stops for a rest. When Julius steps onto an elevator ledge (a brightly lit,
small block) you can take him up by pressing the UP button. Quickly get
Julius off the elevator, because in a few seconds the elevator will descend -
even if you didn't press the DOWN button.
The trek up the sides of each tower presents unknown dangers to Julius. Some
obstacles can be stunned, and others, like the orbiting Spheroids can be blown
apart. but watch out, Julius! Hexalons, I-Balls, Tri-Zeroop and Metaflii are
all invincible. Even Carbonobombs constructed out of top-secret, harder-than-
diamond compound, are useless against these all-powerful beings.
Julius' only defense against his adversaries is to run away or to slip into
one of the doorways. Otherwise, a single touch from these deadly aliens will
knock Julius off his feet. If he falls into the ocean...well, Anurian Hybrids
Julius begins the game with 3 lives. For every 5000 points he earns (10,000
points in the HERO level), Julius will gain an extra life. But even the extra
lives will not help Julius if he runs out of time, so might Jemmerville. Keep
Julius moving. Keep Julius alive.
THE DEADLY OBSTACLES - TO NAME JUST A FEW
I-Balls (looks like an eye)
Hexalons (an egg with 4 spheres around it)
Tri-Zeroop (3 spheres together)
Metaflii (looks like a 6-legged spider)
JULIUS AT THE BONUS LEVEL
With the crumbled remains of a tower behind him, Julius advances to the
diamond-studded bonus level. Centrubies, saphires and diamonds - all free for
the taking. The more gems he collects, the greater his bonus becomes. Julius
has been told that lives which have been lost may later be restored. Time
itself has been known to stop flowing in the rare atmosphere where these
ultraprecious gems are found.
A few more stones, a few more clouds to hop. Carry the gems all the way to
the clock tower and Julius will be awarded with extra time; the next tower
may not be so easy, though.
And those pits, the bottomless ones! If Julius isn't careful about where he
jumps, he'll discover that paradise has a few holes in it. Any time won may
be lost. But Julius doesn't give up easily: "Bring on the next tower!"
JULIUS KNOWS SOME SECRETS
Julius, the Anurian Hybrid, didn't rise to the top of his class without the
help of a few secrets. Here's what he learned:
1. Shoot the flashing ledges (brightly colored blocks) for extra points.
2. If Julius has to jump to a nearby ledge, position his feet as close as
possible to the end of the ledge upon which he is standing.
3. In the bonus level, Julius should move as quickly as he can to reach the
clock tower; he doesn't have to collect every gem he sees.
