20. Continuing a game

Once you lose your last robot, you will be given the option to continue the game at the same level you left off, if you’ve reached Level 6 or higher.

continue

To continue, press the fire button on the joystick before the counter reaches zero. Your score will be reset to zero, you will be given three robots (lives), and you will restart the level number you were on when you lost your last life, minus the number of warps taken.

If you don’t want to continue at the same level you left off, you can either wait until the “continue” count reaches zero, or immediately press GAME SELECT or GAME RESET, to return instead to the game select screen, where you can choose Levels 1 through 5.

21. Ending a game

To end a game and return to the game selection screen, press the GAME SELECT button.

Pressing the GAME RESET button in the middle of a game will sacrifice the current life and return you to the score room.
