Cheats and tricks:
After every 100 points the clouds disappear and the rain stops falling. This gives you a little rest. Be ready though, the clouds are coming back!!!!
1 Point when the raindrop passes the washing line without striking the laundry. 10 extra points are given every 100 point interval.
A miss is scored when a raindrop hits the laundry. With 3 misses (shown by 3 wet shirts in the upper right corner of the right screen), the game is over.
If you hold in Game A or Game B key the highest previous score will be displayed. If the unit is left as it is after game is over, time display will appear in about five minutes. A game is not interrupted even if TIME key or other game keys are depressed during game playing. Pressing ACL switch or removing batteries erases high score from memory.
