Your objective is simple: Escape from each of the 15 rooms using as few moves as possible ! The Continuing Adventures of CyberBox is not an "arcade" game; no manual dexterity is required. You are not timed in any way nor is the "speed" in which you act important. So slow down! You can afford to relax!

However if you're not careful you may trap yourself and may not be able to get to the exit or may render the exit inaccessible. BLOCKERS never move at all. BLOCKERS have got to be the easiest type of box to understand. BLOCKERS ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ Ok.Each room is a separate puzzle all its own. PUSHERS not only can be pushed by you. To hinder your attempt to escape.) PUSHERS are represented by arrows which point in the direction they can be pushed. right. You will never have to "pick up an object in one room". You can move your cursor in any of four possible directions: þ þ þ þ up down left right (the (the (the (the UP arrow key or the HOME key) DOWN arrow key or the END key) LEFT arrow key or the DELETE key) RIGHT arrow key or the PAGE DOWN key) (You may also use the numbers 2. they can also be pushed by MOVERS. your NUMLOCK key may be either on OR off. Period. respectively. and 8 on the numeric keypad which will move you down. 4. since they cannot be pushed and nothing can ever . do so now! This entire documentation file is available to read from inside the program! The remaining documentation will probably make much more sense to you if you've already seen the game. There are several different types of boxes. to help you exit from another. If you currently don't have the program loaded. All together. (see MOVERS. They act as a "blocker" or wall. 6. there are 11 different types of PUSHERS. and up. some can only be pushed "right". below. you must hit the "R" key to retry this room from the beginning. They are capable of being pushed in the direction of their arrowheads. for example. some only "up" or "down" etc. Some PUSHERS can only be pushed "left". ÚÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ¿ ³²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²² BOX DESCRIPTIONS ²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²²³ ÀÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÙ PUSHERS ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ PUSHERS are probably the easiest type of box to understand. left. "boxes" have been strategically placed throughout each room. so I was wrong. In either case. These boxes can be pushed if there is nothing in their path to prevent this from happening.

some just to the left. get zapped forward by a ZAPPER. you have the option of "animating" these MOVERS. However they are capable of being "pulled" but only in the direction of their "handles. is "zap" you forward when you "push" these from behind. (Since this box is just dying to "move!") PULLERS ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ Unlike PUSHERS. MOVERS are represented by a solid blue triangle. Ever. at times. (Or a non-closed SELECTOR. PULLERS may be annoying because. which points in the direction they exert force and move. you are now "pulling it!" To quit pulling this box. pointing in the direction one is "zapped"." (You're too heavy!) So you don't ever have to worry about getting squashed by a MOVER. or walk through a non-closed SELECTOR The only way EVER for a PULLER to move is for you to pull it. MOVERS are able to move PUSHERS or SELECTORS but never PULLERS (which can only be pulled) nor BLOCKERS or ZAPPERS (which never move at all). let's next describe ZAPPERS. these boxes cannot be "pushed" at all. the little blue arrow "moves" back and forth. If you now reverse your direction and walk back the way you came. With this option turned on. it will do so. let's say you've just walked up to a PULLER..) You must be careful with ZAPPERS because they act like a one-way street. These boxes are the only boxes that can move themselves. What these boxes do though. you may not wish to pull them! For example. As soon as a situation exists in which a MOVER can move. this PULLER will in effect. down.be pushed into them. you can't retreat the same way. you will have to either. MOVERS ÄÄÄÄÄÄ These boxes are neat.0.. with version 6. Once you are zapped forward. some which can be pulled just to the right. There are four different types of MOVERS: MOVERS which move up. etc." Just like PUSHERS. change your direction by 90 degrees. ZAPPERS are represented by a solid purple triangle with a hole in the middle. MOVERS can never move "you. MOVERS are always exerting a constant force in the direction they point. See SELECTORS below. there are 11 different types of PULLERS. left. . or right. follow you! Without possibly realizing it. There must be an empty space in the front of the ZAPPER to be zapped. since these two boxes have one thing in common: ZAPPERS also never move at all. ZAPPERS ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ Since we've just mentioned BLOCKERS. Note now.

It should be obvious you can't push SELECTORS because. this type of box does not have a full. you will have to either push a PUSHER against it or force a MOVER to move it. SELECTORS ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ And last but certainly not least are the SELECTORS. it does have a partial wall at the edges which the PUSHERS and MOVERS use to push it. solid wall for your cursor to push up against. The third type is only open from the east and west end. So if you wish to move a SELECTOR. The first type is "open" on all four sides and you can walk right through it. is closed. . if you look at them. ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ More than one box can be moved at the same time ONLY IF EVERY OTHER BOX IN THAT SERIES OF BOXES CAN BE LEGALLY MOVED. represented by an "X". (Pretend you're just small enough to squeeze through!) The second type is only open from the north and south end. There are 4 different types of SELECTORS. The fourth and final type." No boxes can ever be pushed through the exit passageway. "Experiment. <B>ox Review ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ This screen is really just to help you get going the first couple of times you play.

It is just a quick review of each box. They can only be pushed by other boxes. etc. and walking through it is not possible at all. PULLERS are represented simply by a rather funny shaped box (you'll see what I mean) with the rectangular "handle" on the side of the box in which it can be pulled. However.

In addition to the title of each room. allows you to "skip" a room if you so desire. the rooms you have already completed during this session will be highlighted.

The room is THEN set back to what it was before you saw the solution. I included this feature for a couple of reasons.) After taking back a move.

The original CyberBox game consisted of a room with an area only 15 by 10 in size. To do this. This can be useful if you are playing this game at work and see or hear your boss approaching! (Or if YOU are the boss and don't want your employees to see YOU playing games!) After shelling. Before typing EXIT and returning to the game. make sure you are back in the directory the program is launched from. (Note: In Doug's game and in my earlier versions these boxes were called SLIDERS. There currently is no confirmation. if you accidentally walked into a wall or attempted to move a box incorrectly. allows for much more intricate and complex room designs! þ I've introduced a brand new type of box . you might start anywhere! þ In the original CyberBox game. even if you decide to re-enter the same room later. In the original game you always started at the bottom of the screen directly in the middle of the room. (Assuming you happened to change directories in the first place. so do not hit this key combination unnecessarily. I made the boxes slightly smaller and used a little bit more of the video screen. I . from 150 "square feet" to 247 "square feet". ALT-D ÄÄÄÄÄ Although not listed on any of the menus. this was considered a "move" even though your man didn't actually "move" anywhere. any previously saved positions are overwritten. It can be VERY handy and should be used often! You are only allowed to save one position. þ I added a couple of different types of PUSHERS. You will find yourself back in the room.ALT-S ÄÄÄÄÄ This feature allows you to save the current position in memory. Each time you hit ALT-S. from 15 by 10 to 19 by 13. the position is then lost. The amount of memory you will have available after shelling will depend upon your own system configuration. Use ALT-R (see ALT-R above) to recall this position.
