XPOINT MAGNET 2.9.2023
Xpoint MAGNET is a version of Xpoint for one and two players.
The magnetic moving objects run from the upper side of the
gamefield to the lower side and back. The speed to the left
side and to the right side is controlled with the left and right
cursor keys (player one) and y and x (player two). If you apply
the keymapforus.ini keyboard mapping in the dialog displayed
after the start of the game, player two can use the keys
z and x. RETURN can be used to restart the game and ESC can
be used to restart the game with an other number of players.
A magnet, which runs towards the player, exists for every player.
You can collect points and flags with the magnets. The magnetic
objects, which move faster than the magnets, mustn't crash
into holes or pirate stones. A level is completed after all
flags are collected. There are eleven levels. Points, flags,
stones, pirate stones and holes are used in these levels.
The first level also demonstrates some additional objects, but
they are not used in the levels.
