to the back of the screen. On it appears a musical note
which you control and enlarges to a cluster when the
fire button is held down. Also on the web appear creatures
which move about following different but regular patterns.
There are six creatures on the web at one time and you
have to touch each one with your cluster of notes to
paralyse it. The webs take two main forms, one in which
the creatures leave a trail and one in which you leave
trails are fatal to you so you must avoid them depending
on which of the two is in operation at the time. Collision
with a trail will send you back to the start so that
you have to freeze all the creatures again.

they reach the end of their pattern and double back
on themselves. The best way to stop them is to stop
at a junction of web lines and let them hit you. When
you leave a trail you can just run into them anywhere.
the end of each of these webs you get a musical and
graphic interlude which changes as you progress. The
patterns which the creatures follow also change from
turn to turn.

junctions and directional control are complicated.
