Aim of the game

You must complete a post round in an area where the customers are VERY fierce and the conditions distinctly strange!

Game play

Before you get anywhere in the game, you must collect various items from the post boxes along the route. However, you don't have the keys for them, so you must use your own iniative - the bombs found in the road will be very handy for this! Amongst the items are upgrades such as anti-personnel rockets to blow open post boxes and control the locals, and a super-pursuit mode which gives the post van (called SKIT for some reason) a turbo-charged engine. The objective of the game is to exchange postal sacks for letters to be delivered. When you visit the sorting office, house numbers will light up along the bottom of the screen. The number of these houses will depend upon how many sacks you have deposited in the "in" chute of the sorting office. You must then deliver each house indicated to deliver the mail. All the game controls are icon-driven. Pressing fire when in or near the van will call up a menu with several options on it. Although there are few options available at first, as you collect objects the options increase. The local inhabitants are very aggressive and will frequently attack you. You will suffer damage from these attacks and if this damage gets too much, a trip to the hospital will be needed. You can get rid of your attackers by running over them in the van. However, if an innocent civilian gets killed, points are deducted and you get arrested by the police. Running over a policeman or getting arrested too often means Game Over.
