Nice 'Chinese' theme
Not many sound effects
The idea is to get all your coloured balls across to the opposite side of the board before your opponent does. The first one to do this is the winner. The section you are aiming to get your balls into is marked with 2 small stars of your colour.
This version has some handy features, in case you are stuck. 'HINT' - if you get stuck and cannot see any way to move, this will help you out and show you where you can move. 'UNDO' - if you have made a move but change your mind and want to move a different ball, this will undo your last move.
Options are shown down the right (Help, Hint, New, Load, Save, Undo, Quit), and you can either click on these buttons or press the relevant Function Key. As I said earlier, 'Hint' shows you a possible move, and 'Undo' will simply undo your last move. The bottom right shows the colour \ icon that is currently playing.
Each icon takes their turn. Choose which coloured ball you would like to move and then click on it (a small 'x' appears on that ball). You can move the ball to an empty adjacent space by clicking on that empty space, or you can jump over other balls (like leapfrog) that are in your way. It doesn't matter if these balls are a different colour to yours. If you are skillful enough, you can make several leaps in one shot.
MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS
DO NOT use the Setup file. Instead, use CHINESE.EXE to start the game.
