  * The O's look like owls, the D's look like ducks, the R's look
    like Rabbits.  The [8] is a box with an 8 in it.  The X looks
    like a duck flying, and the L looks like a hand gun point up.

What out! Ducks that you don't hit can fly down from the
bottom row to eat ten of your bullets!

Special Strategy: Make sure you use up at least eight bullets
before hitting the Extra-Bullet target.  Your bullet supply can
never show more than 40 bullets.


Eight on-target hits clear the pipes from the screen.  Hit the
same color pipes with the two consecutive shots and you get four
time the pipe score value.

Special Strategy: Knock out the pipes early in the game, while
avoiding the moving targets.  If the pipes remain in view while
you are hitting moving targets, ducks, ducks and more
ducks start coming out!

Score extra points or bullets by hitting the plus-minus target
when the plus sign shows.  But look out!  If the minus-sign is
showing when the target is hit, the points or bullets are sub-
tracted from your score or bullet supply.


Clear the rack of all moving targets and pipes to move on to
the next higher level of game play.  The game ends when the
last bullet is fired.

To replay the type of game you have playing, press the
Game Reset switch.

Hit two pipes of the same color with two consecutive shots for
a score of 200 points for the first pipe and 800 points for the
