Excerpt from the documentation: "3 scenes, 6 games in this machine
code program, designed to develop letter recognition, abc sequence,
and (at the insistence of my son) a simple counting game. Use a
joystick to lift and place the large letter bricks in their correct
place on the screen, like driving a real crane! Because the program
never takes control, the child learns co-ordination, cause and
effect, and to experiment, as he or she manipulates the bricks!"

An excerpt from the documentation: "A joystick controls the spaceship
as the control tower gives you the target pad as a simple sum. As in
arcade-type games you have 5 lives, and lots of noise (which you can
turn off by pressing any 'f' key)!"

Instructions for Wordsearch: "This program requests the user to input words,
of upto 12 letters long. These words are then hidden, in any one of eight
directions, within a grid of letters. An option is given to either print
the screen or attempt to find the words. A joystick in port 2 is needed to
find the words: the fire button toggles between set colour and white.
Pressing F7 allows you to quit. Quit option reprints the word search with
the hidden words in black lowercase. It is possible to change the number
of words by altering the value of limit in line 90. However you must load
the program without running it to do this! have fun Paul Hancock - PAH4"
