Notes

Published in the book 21 Games For The BBC Micro by Mike James, S. M. Gee and Kay Ewbank, published by Granada Publishing Ltd.

The book contains the following description:

 

Have you got the skill and judgement needed to lead an expedition
through dangerous terrain? This colour graphics game provides an
easy way to discover your potential. The object of the game is to get
your party of five intrepid explorers across a deep ravine with a fast
flowing river at the bottom of steep cliffs. There is only one option, to
swing across on a rope. The rope swings all the time so each man must
run and leap to catch it − any one who mistimes his jump falls into the
river and is lost. Listen out for the sound effects as a man falls towards
the river!
How to play:
This game is all a matter of timing − you have to judge when to start
each run for the rope. It is vital to catch the rope on the downswing
and each man can jump approximately his own width. You can wait as
long as you like before making any run and when you are ready press
any key to jump. When your first little man has made his run and
either swung to safety, or perished, the second explorer will appear in
position. There are five of them in all and the length of the rope
remains the same for all of them. In each new game the rope changes
at random.
