Description

In this game, you play as Stevie and Nancy.

The Music Machine moves back and forth at the top of the screen, dropping symbols that represent good qualities (Fruits of the Spirit). You have to catch these in you basket. Once you have caught one of each of the other symbols, then the heart (representing love) comes down. You MUST catch the heart to end the round and go to the next round. If you miss the heart, you lose a life.

Just under the Music Machine is Mr. Pims. He tries to mess you up by dropping down his assistants, the Pudgeons. If you catch a Pudgeon, you lose a life.

The symbols and what they represent are:
Heart=Love
Snail=Patience
Lamb=Gentleness
Mustard Seed=Faith
Music Note=Joy
Harp=Peace
Gift=Kindness
Angel=Goodness
Stop Sign=Self-control

The points vary per level. They are:
Level........................1......2.....3......4.......5......6.......7.......8........9......10
Catch symbol=........10...15....20....30.....40....50.....60.....70.......80.....90
Miss symbol=.........-5....-8....-10...-15...-20....-25....-30....-35.....-40.....-45
Catch love=.........100..200..300..400..500...700..1000..1400..2000...2500
Catch Pudgeon=-100.-200.-300.-400.-500.-700.-1000.-1400.-2000.-2500

You get a bonus basket at 10,000 points if you have less the three in reserve.

Trivia

There was a line of "The Music Machine" products, including LP's, sold by Sparrow. This game is based on those.

This game was only sold in religious bookstores.

Some collectors claim the game and album were bundled together. While I have not seen photos of this, it is very possible they could have been shrink-wrapped together to move the products better.
