Notes

Published in the book BBC Micro Programs in Basic from Newnes Technical Books, which contains the following description:

If your kids are like the one that has the contract to hike mud into
our house, they will love a certain cartoon character that travels at a
great rate of knots along a road, always eluding the foxy type who is
trying to catch him. In this computer game, they are trying to catch
the bird. We suppose that a charge of dynamite has been placed in
the road and as soon as the bird appears, the player has to slap any
key to detonate the charge. The problem is of course that the bird
travels very fast indeed. Actually, I have included skill levels from 0
to 9, and although anyone can win at the lowest level, quite frankly,
I think that level 9 is completely impossible - which is to admit that I
at least have never won at that level!
