Back of Box (Atari 7800):
    Awesome Job Dude

    Your new after school job is a dream come true! Someone's actually going to pay you to skateboard.

    Here's the deal - Your Dad's company needs someone to turn off all the machines and lights in their factory at the end of the day. Your job is to cruise the maze of hallways, leaping for light switches and tucking through ventilation tubes to get from floor to floor. Jumping on the assembly line will increase your speed, but be careful or you'll be flattened like a road pizza.

    The faster you finish, the more power is saved and the more you get paid. So hurry up 'cuz there's lots of floors and power is leaking out fast!

Description from manual (Atari 7800):
    Your Dad got you an afterschool job at the factory where he works. You need the money 'cuz being the most radical boarder around means you've got heavy expenses.

    The job is a skateboarder's dream come true. Miles of halls and tubes to perfect your moves. Just cruise through and turn off all the machines and lights in the factory. Hurry up 'cuz power is leaking out fast!

    Naturally, there's a catch. You get paid depending on how much power you save. And you've got to be out of the factory by 5:15 pm today. One second more and you'll never make the deadline for entering the Skateboarding Championship.

    Look at the bottom of your screen to see how radical you truly are. The left meter shows the power consumption of the machines and equipment you haven't turned off yet. The middle meter tells how much power has been used since you started. As you turn off machines and equipment, power consumption slows. The right meter ticks away the minutes you have left. Check out the ratings at the end of the instructions to see how radical your cruisin' rates!
