Use the movement buttons to move the Cowboy to wherever the attackers
are coming, and press the same key again to use the hammer. Hitting a
touch or an attacker is 2 points.
The game speed will increase up to every 100 points and then slow down.
At 200 and 500 points a fanfare will sound and the misses will be
cleared. If you have no misses at this point, the CHANCETIME will be
activated for 50 seconds. In this period the score will blink and you
are rewarded 5 points for each hit.
In Game A the attackers will come from up to 3 directions at once.
In Game B they can come from all 4 directions at once, there will also
be more attackers and a higher game speed in game B.
