Driller manual


This document assumes a basic knowledge of the gameplay of DRILLER, as given
in the program manual.

Control of the game is, at present, via keyboard or mouse-driven icons.  The
keyboard  controls  mimic  exactly  what the icons do.  Here is a summary of
control.   The  "Btn"  column  indicates which button on the mouse should be
pressed  to  perform  the  function - most icons are dual purpose, the usual
function being accessed using the LEFT mouse button.
