How to Get Out of the Wells

Below is an iframe that will display pages from the tips sheet and manual that came with the game. Just click on a link and the page will pop up in the iframe. You can also move to the next image by clicking on the current image or the 'next' link below it.

 

The tips sheet and manual scans that I made are large in file size, so if you have a slow connection, they will take a while to load. You may want to check out the text version of the manual and tips sheet at AtariAge instead. The manual contains some errors, so you might want to check out the DP E.T. Easter Egg and Bug Page for the correct information.

 

Please do not hotlink (direct link) to these images from places such as forums and blogs. If you want people to see an image, just give the address to this page and let them decide if they want to visit:

Warning

A Round of E.T. from Start to Finish

It says on page 7 of the manual that if E.T. collects more than 31 candy pieces, he'll get 1,000 points for every additional piece and lose 700 energy units in the next round for each candy piece collected after the 31st piece. The number 31 was a misprint. The correct number is 21 (and that's not the only thing they got wrong). It's rare to ever get more than 31 candy pieces and if that happens, you'll get Ninja E.T. in the next round and strange symbols in the energy count as you first start to walk around. The symbols eventually go away.

 

Besides looking at the tips sheet and manual below, be sure to check out my Tips and Reminders page. There's a lot of useful information on that page that you won't find below.

In Case You Didn’t Know

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.

 

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.

 

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.

 

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.

 

Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
