Brief Play Description: 

Arrow keys move the porcupine around; the balloon will move simultaneously, but may move in a different direction.

Power-ups:

Mirrors reverse the direction of movement.

Time-dependent power-ups:

Grow/shrink cause the heroes to grow or shrink depending on when they are picked up.

When enlarged, the porcupine can shoot quills and the balloon can jet across the screen
for a bit.

Press Z to perform a quill attack; press X to jet propel the balloon.

Hints:

The balloon doesn't like spikes!
The porcupine has problems with pits.
Some walls can be destroyed.
