This is just the Readme that comes with the game. Just in case you want to read about the game before you download it, or maybe because you're too lazy to open a little .txt file...

LOCO NOTE:  This game is not shareware, freeware, or anything like that.
            It's just free.  You can't beat that!  If you like it or don't
            like it write the loco people that made it and tell them.  You
            can send them ideas or whatever, or send money if you are loco
            enough...


REQUIREMENTS:  An IBM PC or compatible with at least a CGA monitor.

RATING:  Still L for loco.

INSTRUCTIONS:  Many of these instructions are not even necessary because
               the game is so easy to control.

There are two parts to the game:  The field and battles.  The field is
where you walk around and explore areas, and battles are the fights
that pit you against an enemy.

     BATTLE INSTRUCTIONS 
    掏屯屯屯屯屯屯屯屯屯屯释屯屯屯屯屯屯屯屯屯屯屯突
         Here is how you would fight an enemy:     
                                                  
       1.  First, there are three options when    
           the fight commences - Attack, Spell,   
           or escape.                             
                                                  
       2.  Choose which command to do by moving   
           the cursor to that command.  Then      
           press the space bar or enter           
                                                  
       3.  If you choose to attack, a number      
           indicating how much HP the enemy lost  
           will be shown.  Then, in most cases,   
           the enemy will attack back.  If both   
           sides still have more than 0 HP left,  
           another round starts.                  
                                                  
       4.  If you choose to use a spell and you   
           don't have any, you won't be allowed   
           to use this command.  If however, you  
           do have spells, then a spell menu will     
           appear.  To activate the spell you     
           want to use, press the first letter    
           in the name of that spell.  If you     
           have enough MP, your character will    
           cast that spell.                       
                                                  
       5.  If you choose to escape, you have a    
           50 percent chance of failure.  If      
           you're fighting a boss, however, you   
           won't be able to escape at all.(There  
           are only two bosses anyways.)

When you win a battle, you will gain Tomato Points, which are the
same as experience points for those of you who are experienced
RPG veterans.  When you gain enough Tomato Points, you will rise to
the next level, and you will gain HP, MP, and strength.  If you
reach certain levels, some spells will become available to you.
Also, there are two items that may be left behind by enemies - both
are types of armor.  So, keep fighting enemies to get these items
so you can raise your defense.

      There are three magic spells in this game:  
                                                  
      Tomato Cure - This magic refills some of    
                    your HP.                      
                                                  
      Deep Freeze - This magic freezes your enemy 
                    for one round, making it      
                    unable to fight or defend     
                    itself.  Some HP is also      
                    taken away from the enemy.    
                    Bosses are immune to the      
                    freezing effect of this       
                    spell.                        
                                                  
      Super Power - Normally, you have a 10%      
                    chance of getting to use a    
                    super-powerful hit.  With     
                    this spell you can raise that 
                    chance by 20% by calling a    
                    lightning bolt to strike you. 
                    If done enough times, you can 
                    have a 100%+ chance!!  Great  
                    against bosses!
