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 unaccellerared 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 most setups.
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 sounds on/off.
The About button will display the About screen, and this button will only work when not in a 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.
