Splinter Software
PO Box 1282
Grove City OH, 43123Shareware Notice
This is a fully functional version of the program. No features have been disabled, it won't stop playing in 10 days and it won't just let you play once a day. You will however have a little “please register me” screen pop up on you from time to time. The purpose of this is to remind you that this program is not free, not to annoy you. If you feel the notice comes up too often and this genuinely bothers you, please let us know and we’ll send you a different version of the program where the shareware notice comes up less frequently.Overview
Agean is a 1 player sea battle game of luck and skill that can be very addictive. You strategically place your ships on a board, as does the computer opponent. Your objectiveis to sink all of the computers ships before it sinks yours. System requirements:
* System 7.xx
* 2 MB of RAM
* Color monitor

Setup Instructions and Menu explanations:
Positioning ships
Single click on the ship you want to position.
Select the position of the ship by single clicking somewhere on the board.
Using Horizontal/Vertical Button
This button allows you to change the orientation of ships. You can only change the ships orientation before it is on the playing board. Ships may be moved back to the Shipyard if a change in orientation is required.

Using Auto Button
During Setup this button generates a random placement of all ships. If random placement is not acceptable, then you may reposition ship(s) manually or hit the Auto button again for a new random placement.
During the game this button generates random firing of your remaining shots. This is especially useful for fast play.

Select Shots per round, Game level, Sound options and Graphics speed you wish to use for the game.

Note: Prefs for Shots per round and Game level can only be changed while in game setup.
This menu option allows you to control both the speed the computer shoots at you and the speed you shoot at the computer (if you use the auto fire button). The speed defaults have been optimized on a Performa 575 using 256 colors. Using a different color setting may make this menu option less effective. If you find the game is making squelching sounds... slow the speed down.
Most of the help included in this document is available on-line under the ‘Setup help’ option.
