Game Instructions –
“Hello, I’m Harabeko ‘Kappaman’, and I’m searching for things to eat. Help me steal as much food as possible from the insects!”
Kappaman can go in all 4 cardinal directions by using the cursor keys; however, after passing through a blue wall, it will become red and impassable. If he is caught by an enemy (spider, butterfly, dragonfly), he dies. Both butterflies and dragonflies are pushed back to their initial positions if they are caught by the spider. The game’s objective is to catch all the food left by the spider and fill Kappaman’s belly, as shown on the right. You’re granted 4 lives total.
