THE LEVEL SCREENS
Two levels are provided in the mini-adventure version. The practice field is also included. To change levels or enter the practice field, press on the "wooden" signs at the bottom corners of the screen.
The practice field is a good place start since your child can get used to the game without worrying about Scorch. You wouldn't want to face Scorch without practicing...would
THE PRACTICE FIELD
Here is a good place to practice moving Sir Addalot and matching equations. You move by pressing on a square with the mouse or by using the arrow keys. Select a square by pressing on the square again with the mouse or by pressing the space bar. Now move to the matching equation and select it again.
When using a mouse, Sir AddaLot will take the shortest path to the square you selected. Sometimes it is better to move Sir AddaLot in small steps to make sure that a fireball doesn't get in your path. If you use a mouse, check to make sure it is clean and moves smoothly.
For children new to a mouse, here are some suggestions:
1) Teach your child how to pick up the mouse and place it in the center of the mouse pad when it comes to the edge, 2) Watch the child's wrist to insure they are not trying to point or twist the mouse. Keep the mouse pointed ahead. Teach your child to move their arm, not their
PLAYING THE GAME
After practicing, you are ready to face Scorch. After entering the first castle, start matching equations as fast as you can. Watch out for Scorch. Now and then Scorch will spew out a wandering fireball. Scorch makes more fireballs as you advance to higher screen levels or higher speed levels.
Beware of the tricky fireballs that Scorch uses if you make a mistake. These fireballs will chase you. Don't give up. You can run faster. Like other fireballs, they will eventually burn out.
If you get caught by a fireball, do't worry. Sir AddaLot always carries a shield for protection. The fireball will destroy the shield, but Sir AddaLot will be saved. Each castle has a place to hold 2 extra shields. Sir AddaLot will get another shield if any are left. If no shields are left, Sir AddaLot will leave the castle and must start
THE OPTIONS MENU
The options menu controls the speed, sound, high score, moat display, and mouse control. You can get to the options screen by pressing "Options" on any level
screen. If you are not using a mouse, or prefer to use the arrow keys, select "mouse OFF" to hide the mouse
cursor. High scores are saved for each level. You can look at or erase the high
scores. You can turn all sounds ON or OFF. Finally, you can empty all plants and fish from the

Before Scorch came to town, the moat was a busy place. Plants, fish and other sea creatures lived in the moat. You can restore the moat and make it look just as you want.
After completing each level, you can choose an item to place in the moat. If the item is a plant, place it carefully where you want it. If you are placing a fish, you can place it anywhere because it will start swimming after you let it go.
Each level has different objects. Remember, you can view the moat at any time from any Level Screen. You can "empty" the moat from the
