You take on the role of QWAK, a highly intelligent and athletic duck. The objective (on each level) is to collect all the keys, then go to the door to exit from the level. You should collect the fruit as you go along for extra points. There are 24 levels of play. If all 24 are completed, the levels repeat but are more difficult.
You must avoid the monsters and the spikes. You can shoot bubbles at the opposing monsters. When a monster is hit by a bubble, the monster will disappear for a short while. When it reappears, it moves at twice its original speed and is then immune to bubbles.
When you collect a potion bottle:
if there is any fruit remaining, the fruit and spikes will be swapped;
if there is no fruit remaining, the monsters will be stunned for a short while.
You start with 3 spare lives. An extra life is awarded for every 8 flowers collected.
If you complete a level without killing any of the monsters, the message "PEACEFUL!" is displayed and a bonus of 100 x number of the level is awarded.
CTRL - Left, A - Right, <RETURN> - Jump, <SHIFT> - Shoot Bubble
S/Q - Sound/Quiet, <COPY>/<DELETE> - Pause On/Off, <SHIFT><ESCAPE> - Quit Level
<SPACE> - Start Game at Level 1 (3 spare lives)
<ESCAPE> - Start Game at last Level recorded (0 spare lives)
P - Enter password (0 spare lives)
Passwords allow immediate access to levels 2 to 21, but you will have no spare lives. The passwords will allow you to practise the levels. To achieve the maximum score (and level) it makes sense to play the game from the first level.
