Runaway is a remake of the LCD game with the same name made by Gakken. Some
editions was also labeled Searchlight.
As the game starts you will see the main character, the prisoner is located in
his cell at the top right of the screen. The purpose of the game is to help
the prisoner to escape from the cell, while avoiding the patrolling guards and
the constant moving search light. Before escaping the prisoner must break
through a fence bofore jumping into freedom.
Just unpack the archive to any location and run it.
Note that the supplied icons are png icons.
The game is made with Hollywood, so it will probably not run so well on
unaccelerated Amigas. Testing on AmiKit shows that it consumes about 16MB of
free ram upon starting.
For MorphOS, AmigaOS4 or Arosx86 computers, the requirements should be met for
It is possible to scale the game window to your wish, but keep in mind that
scaling might slow down the game. If this happens, I recommend to quit and
relaunch the game, and then leave the window as is.
How to play:
To start the game, press the start/reset button, and then use the directional
buttons at the lower part of the window to select game type A or B. Game B is
slightly harder than game A, but will give you a higher score for escaping.
When the game is running, you will use these direction buttons to move the
prisoner left or right.
There are two additional smaller buttons, Highscore/Audio and About.
Highscore/Sound will diplay the current highscore, but will also toggle the
The About/Pause button will display the About screen if the game is not
started. When the game is running it will pause the game.
This game is released as freeware for the Amiga. If you wish to donate, you
can do so by purchasing the game at google play. It will usually be found by
searching for runaway gakken.
