Sabotage is a conversion of the classic Apple II game with same name.
Although it's basically the same game it's controls are slightly
different than the original.

Instead of the point-and-shot style you should control your cannon
using the numeric keys 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.
Each of them will shot in a different direction as shown below.
Its much more practical when using a small HPC keyboard:

3 4 5
2_ \ | / _6
\__\ | /__/
1------ ------7

Press P to pause and Backspace to finish the game. Press Backspace
again to quit.

Sabotage was developed using the BasiCE language, and typed in directly
at my Cassiopeia's keyboard. What a masochism, eh?

As it's interpreted Basic, the source code is the program itself.
Most of the routines were written in a weird way in order to improve
the overall speed of the game. Don't blame me, it's Basic.
I've rather make games in C but I cannot afford the Microsoft C++ cost.
Take a look on my PC game written in C called Back to the Moon, at:

Sabotage requires that you have a copy of BasiCE properly installed in
your HPC. Follow the instructions in the BasiCE documentation to
install it correctly.

BasiCE was developed by Dean Gienger (deang@usa.net). It's a full
implementation of the BASIC language for Microsoft Windows CE.
BasiCE features include support for floating point, long variable
names, procedures, functions, a user extensible run time extension
library, and the ability to draw graphics.
Get you BasiCE at http://www.ziplink.net/~maxm/windowsce/software.html
Thanks Dean.

The editor I used was Jimmy's Notepad (jimmy@jimmy.com).
Visit Jimmy at http://www.jimmy.com and get your copy, as well several
other goodies, many of them for free.
Thanks Jimmy.
