Collect gifts for your sweetie and reach her at the top. Known as "Brix" prior to the Cinematronics release.
You are a green creature named ZZYZZYXX, and you are trying to collect
gifts to make your girlfriend, Lola, happy. To get there, you move through
twelve conveyer belts with many openings to get to the finish.
Trying to keep you from getting to Lola are those annoying Rattifers,
weird creatures who move from opening to opening and stalk ZZYZZYXX.
When you push a button, ZZYZZYXX is encased in a wall that can protect him
temporarily, but ZZYZZYXX must move to a new opening before he moves out
automatically... and into the waiting arms of a Rattifer. Also, when
ZZYZZYXX builds a wall, that wall stays built until the level is complete.
You cannot build a wall if there is only one opening in that particular
When ZZYZZYXX grabs a helmet, he can do one of two things: 1) He can break
a new opening in a row, or 2) he can trap a Rattifer by thrusting or
pulling back on the controller. The Rattifer will be trapped for 10
seconds, giving you ample time for you to escape.
When ZZYZZYXX collects gifts, he scores points, starting at 100 points for
the first gift, all the way up to 800 points for the eighth gift. When
ZZYZZYXX has collected enough gifts, Lola will jump up and down. Take the
gifts to Lola, who is situated in the top of the screen. Doing so will
give you bonus points.

Level 1: 250 points per gift (2000 pt. maximum)
Level 2: 500 " " " (4000 pt. ")

In each level, ZZYZZYXX must succeed in giving the gifts to Lola a certain
number of times. In Levels 1 and 2, ZZYZZYXX must complete two laps. Later
levels require three laps. If ZZYZZYXX loses a life, he must start from
