Documentation for AVOID THE NOID
AVOID THE NOID was created by Dominoes Pizza to advertise their pizza,
and service. We hope that you enjoy playing this game as much as we
enjoyed making it. AVOID THE NOID works with graphic systems such as
CGA. Digitized sound effects were added to magnify the enjoyability of
the game (these sounds, as well as the background music can be heard
through your PC/XT/AT and TANDY internal speaker, and no external
sound device is required). AVOID THE NOID requires 320K bytes of RAM,
and no external device (other then a keyboard and CGA monitor) is
required either, yet joystick control is fully supported.
Storyline: You have just been sent out to deliver a pizza to Doom
Industries. As a Dominoes Pizza delivery boy, you must reach the top
of the building, while avoiding the "Noid" (Dominoes "clay-mation"
character). Your goal must be accomplished within 30 minutes, or the
customer gets a discount, and you lose your job.
Controls: To play AVOID THE NOID, you must know the following keyboard
Up Arrow - Makes delivery boy jump.
Left Arrow - Move left faster
Right Arrow - Move left faster
ENTER - Open doors, answer phones, etc.
ALT - X - Exit to DOS system.
F1 - Help with extra commands.
Game Play: Avoid the Noid by "jumping" over him and all of his traps,
or he'll stomp your pizza flat, thus loosing a delivery boy. Once all
delivery boys have been fired, the game is over, and the Noid wins!
Watch for trapdoors and booby traps that the Noid has set for your
destruction (actually, he doesn't want to hurt you, just the pizza!).
To play AVOID THE NOID, simply type NOID at your DOS prompt:
C:\GAMES\ARCADE\NOID>noid <=== or any directory you choose
^ ^ ^
| | \_____
|__ Drive |__ Directory \__ You type
Remember the objective: Get that pizza delivered to the TOP FLOOR
within 30 minutes. So don't let any of the Noid's little traps
distract your progress.
