The manual was a bit threadbare for some details. Has anybody worked out how to land a jump?
I’ve worked out hitting shift just as you jump puts your guy into the jump position which gives you heaps of distance, but if you’re in that position when you land then you just crumple into a heap. I have no idea how to get out of that position though. I managed it once by accident (and got a pretty good score too!), but I haven’t managed to replicate it.

I’m having trouble getting a manageable speed too. Even on my 386 using a slowdown utility which I’ve supposedly set to emulate a 4.77mhz 8088 it still feels too fast.
I found some youtube videos. They’re for different systems, but they all play much slower.
