elevator shafts and return safely to your ship. Using your amazing athletic
ability, you must enter all the rooms on each level and successfully collect
everything in each room. You've only got a limited supply of oxygen, so you've
got to get all the objects and make a mad dash for the door before you run out
Watch out for those slime-sucking aliens. They'll take your breath away. It's
time to show those freaks what an earthling can do! Are you ready for the
challenge? They don't call you Dash for nothing - you can jump and run better
than anyone in the Universe.

You begin in the elevator shaft of each floor. You must enter rooms by passing
through doorways. Sometimes the doors are blocked by force fields or large
blocks. Once in the room, you have to turn off all switches inside before the
door will open again to let you out. You must successfully go in and out of
every room on one floor before you move up to the next floor. In the rooms,

game at any time during game play, press the Start button. To return to the
game, press Start again.
Keys: It's always a good idea to pick up objects. You never know when you may
need some help. Keys enable you to pass through force fields. When you have
keys in your inventory you can walk through a force field. Your inventory will
then be reduced by one. If you don't have a key and you walk into a force
field, you will lose a life.
Bombs: Bombs can be used to blow up enemies in the rooms or blow up blocks or
force fields in the elevators. A bomb will automatically detonate 3 seconds
after it is set. Don't stand too close or it can blow you up too! To set a
bomb, press Button B.
Detonators: When you have a detonator in your inventory, you can set the bomb
off anytime you want to. To detonate a bomb, press Button B again after you
set the bomb.
Stars: Whenever you collect 10 orange Stars, you become invincible for a short
period of time. Your enemies cannot hurt you. However, you can still run out
of oxygen or jump off a platform into the abyss if you're not careful.
Oxygen: You start out with a fresh supply of oxygen in each room. Full oxygen
is replaced by the green bar on the lower right of your screen. As you use up
the oxygen, the green bar turns red. When it turns completely red, you're
history. Whenever you see an oxygen container, it's a good idea to pick one
Oxygen Flasks: You should pick these up to restore oxygen.
Lives: You start out with four lives. Every time you pick up a heart, you gain
an additional life.
Switches: You must turn off all switches in each room before continuing.

On some floors, you may find secret rooms. If you figure out how to get into
these rooms, you will find bonus goodies inside. Also, there are hidden
express elevators that enable you to get to other floors. But, beware - this
can pay off and take you to higher floors or you could end up dropping back
