Game Instructions –

After starting the program, you nedd to wait about a minute until the title screen shows up; after this, press any key to start the game.
When the screen finishes drawing, a “O” appears in the center of the screen; this is you. The bar on the bottom shows how much time you have left. Move the 0 left with 5, down with 6, up with 7, right with 8 and get all the invisible flags before time runs out. The game is completed once all flags are collected, and letting the time run out results in a GAME OVER.
To help you, there’s a “COMPAS( )” on the upper left corner: when it contains “I”, it means a flag is along your vertical position, and a “-” means a flags is along your horizontal position. Use this compass to get every flag as quickly as possible.
The “*”s are trees, and cannot be trespassed.
