Mindroll - Manual
Relax. Take a deep breath and leave your body behind. You're now the Orb
of Id, ready to bump, roll, and crash through ten different planes of an
insane, 3D puzzle. Slide around shocking, electric seas, bounce off
invisible walls, and pick up keys and amulets to escape disturbingly
infinite mazes. Move fast to finish each plane in time, but don't get
careless - one step over the edge and you'll fall into the deep, dark
Void of Freud.

Surviving Time is your worst enemy. The upper right corner of the screen
the Planes shows the time units you have left to complete the plane. As

below. Some are beneficial, some are bothersome, and some
are downright lethal. Touch the Goal to complete each plane.
You end a game and return to the Choose Plane table if you
bump into an Eliminator or time runs out.

Id's Up to You! PLANE 1 - Roll or bounce the length of the plank and drop
through the Void into five subplanes. Two hints: In
subplane 3, avoid the Electric Sea - it speeds up the
clock. Slalom to the finish in subplane 5.
NOTE: If you leave plane 1 before you finish all five
subplanes, when you return to plane 1 you will continue
on one of the remaining subplanes.
PLANE 2 - Roll over Keys (in the right order) to open
doors. Roll near Keys to make more Keys appear. Use
Teleports to scout out the entire maze.
PLANE 3 - Stay out of the Electric Sea! Find four
hidden Amulets to make the Goal appear.
PLANE 4 - Race down the track as fast as you can. Avoid
time-draining blocks and use Lifts up and down, as you
have a limited number of jumps.
PLANE 5 - Fill the puzzle with tiled squares.
PLANE 6 - Grab the three sets of Surprises to make the
Goal appear. If you roll over a Surprise in the wrong
order, pneumatic tubes suck you up and deliver you to an
Eliminator. Avoid the time-eating Electric Sea!
PLANE 7 - Pick up extra Time Boosters - you can use them
in other planes.
PLANE 8 - Roll over all four Keys in one of the four
mazes before you run out of time!
PLANE 9 - Bash out all the cubes. Energizers temporarily
boost your speed. Avoid the flashing squares!
PLANE 10 - Bounce from platform to platform, but tackle
only one unit of height at a time to avoid a time penalty.
Get to the Goal as fast as you can!
Scoring When you successfully complete a plane, any time units remaining
convert to points. (For example, 5 time units remaining earns
you 5 points.) Time left when you finish a plane also carries
over to the next plane you play. You score points by rolling over
Keys and Surprises.. 2 points each Amulets.. 5 points each
Bonus rounds, worth 20 points (and sometimes extra time), follow
the planes you successfully complete. Follow the arrows to play
bonus rounds. Press the fire button to continue play after
Scores of the first five games are recorded in the Master Table.

and score to disk.
