At the start of the game you have a supply of three fly swatters. You must use your swatter
to swat the flies and other bugs that appear. Use the arrow keys on your keyboard
(or your mouse or joystick) to move your swatter around. You can only move in four directions
(left, right, up, down) while the bugs can move in any direction. This is important
because in some rounds you'll find screens that the flies can go through but you can't.
To swat a bug you must get next to it and then hit the arrow key that would move you
toward the bug. The swatted bug remains on the screen as an obstacle which you must then avoid.
When using a mouse you just slide the mouse in the direction you want to move or swat.
Using a joystick you just push the joystick handle in the direction you want to move.
Holding down either joystick button will make the swatter move at half speed for better control.
It isn't necessary to swat every bug you see. Remember, the goal is only to swat the Super Fly
so that you can go on to the next round. The Super Fly does not appear right at the
beginning of the round, though, so you'll have to swat other bugs until he does finally show up.
Once the Super Fly appears it may actually be better not to swat other bugs, as that only
increases the number of bugs on the screen and makes it harder for you to move around.
