StarRunner "Return To Nemesis"
by Tuan Huynh

**** Release 1.2 ****

INTRODUCTION
StarRunner "Return To Nemesis" is a fast arcade game featuring:
• Fast 60 fps and smooth animation.
• Digitized sounds
• Over 100 levels
• Over 20 different kind of smart aliens

YOUR TASK
• Your mission is to flight from planets to planets rescuing stranded humans and destroying all other low-life creatures - if it moves, shoot it! If it is still there, blast it!

HINTS
• The new and improved StarRunner can now fire while flying backwards. Quite useful to shoot up lines of aliens. It can also handle progressive speed.
• Don't let aliens kidnap the little waving people on the ground. You don't want to know what happens if none are rescued...
• Some aliens follow you from planet to planet. Therefore, don't stay too long on one particular planet; they might come get you... Heh heh...
• One type of aliens leaves flashbomb capsules behind when shot down. Catch them before they hit the ground... or run after them later...
• Holding the shift key while loading the game will give you an extra thousand points (not).
• Aliens aim at you when shooting, therefore change direction often.
• Aliens are better at shooting at you when you're at low speed. Run, run, run...
• You get a bonus ship every 10,000 points
• Check out level 5...

NOTES
• StarRunner requires a 68020 CPU or better to run. It will work on any Macintosh screen set to B/W.
• StarRunner now works with both System 6 & 7.
• Multi-monitor setups: StarRunner always tries to use the main monitor first (i.e. the one with the menu bar on it). In case the main monitor is not set to B/W, the program will scan for the first available B/W screen. Therefore, if you have both an internal B/W screen and a external color screen and want the external screen (set to B/W) to be used, set the external monitor as the main one and run StarRunner.
• StarRunner was tested on the following Macintosh computers: SE/30 (Mac OS 6.0.7 and 7.0 ), II, IIci, IIsi, LC, IIfx, PowerBook 170 and Quadra 700 (Mac OS 7.0 each).
• System 6 users: StarRunner is now totally System 6-compatible provided System 6.0.7 or higher is used and 32-bit QuickDraw is installed (the 32-bit QuickDraw init can be found in the Color folder on the Printing Utilities disk ).

What happened on level 5? Either I never got that far, or my memory has faded with the passing winters...
