HOW TO PLAY QUEST FOR TIRES
Can Thor save Cute Chick from the hungry dinosaur? Only you can help.
At first he only has to jump rocks and holes. Then he must jump and duck,
almost simultaneously, to avoid the logs and low hanging tree limbs in the
The only way Thor can get across the river is to hop on the turtles' backs.
These turtles sometimes get tired and submerge at the wrong moment, much to
Thor's dismay! To add to Thor's difficulties, his arch-enemy Fat Brood is waiting on the other side to ambush him.
If Thor's timing is good, the Dooky Bird will help him over the lava pit If he
jumps the pit just when Dooky Bird is overhead, the prehistoric bird will pick
him up and carry him across!
Thor must build up plenty of speed during his downhill run before the cliff.
Timing is crucial, too. If Thor's balance is off or he is too slow he will crash into the ravine or the face of the cliff
Once over the cliff, Thor faces his most difficult challenge: the volcanic eruption In addition to the obstacles on the ground, he is showered with
boulders from the sky.
Once again Thor must cross the river on the turtles' backs. Then, at last, he
must face the dinosaur!
If Thor can get past the dinosaur and into the cave, he has only a short way to
go to rescue Cute Chick. On his way, Thor must duck under stalactites and jump
over stalagmites to avoid crashing.
If Thor does crash, don't worry: he has five wheels. But True Love is calling
him, so use all your agility and cunning to help him rescue Cute Chick!
