About the playing the game:
Mpoint Base is a version of the Astro Solutions game Xpoint (or Mpoint).
The object of the player starts at one position of the gamefield.
It moves to the borders of the gamefield in the direction, where
the mouse is positioned. The direction of the object of the player
is reversed, if it hits the border or the user clicks with the mouse.
The key RETURN is used to restart the game after you have lost.
You can quit the game with ESC. After you have started a level
by pressing any key, you only use the mouse.
The player must collect the flags in each level and avoid crashing
into holes or pirate stones. There are three more
stone types in the first level, but they don't appear in the higher
levels, because their function isn't playable well. The point-items
can be collected to increase the score. The ATARI-version
offers the feature to save the score.
