    Description:
    Use Captain Handy's amazing fist to eliminate his personal demons! If his outstretched hand touches a demon points are awarded. Greater awards are given if the demon is eliminated while the arm matches its color. Demons who touch your arm will do one point of damage to your health. If all six hearts are gone so are you! Only one arm can appear on-screen at a time. Fully retract your arm to enable the opposite appendage. You can change your off-screen arms color by pressing the FIRE button. Occasionally a star will appear that randomly changes your current arms color and awards bonus points. At certain intervals the demons will begin to move faster.

    Controls:
    Use reset switch to reset game (including high score)
    Press FIRE to start game, return to title screen or change off-screen arms color.
    Press the joystick left or right to stretch Captain Howdy's arm.
    To switch arms fully withdraw the on-screen appendage.
    Set either switch to PRO to raise the arms height and increase game speed.

    Score:
    10 points for eliminating color mismatched demon
    110 points for eliminating demon matching your on-screen arm color
    5 points per continual contact with star
