Player name
Screenshot egg-O-shOOter Type in your name. This is the name appearing at the highscore lists (assuming you were good enough). You are asked to confirm your name whenever you made a highscore.
Target shooting
Screenshot egg-O-shOOter When shooting at the targets you get more points the closer your hit is to the given 'center'. That is not obligatory the middle point of the target.

Normal game
Screenshot egg-O-shOOter 'Normal game' sounds too unspectacular for the things waiting for you behind the up to 6 different levels.

Screenshot egg-O-shOOter Set up your egg-O-shOOter depending on the hardware you use.
Choose the wanted window size by pressing the keys 1-5. The bigger the window, the more easy it is to hit the eggs. If your hardware is older, you can increase frame rate by choosing a smaller window.
The fullscreen mode makes it possible to play the game using the whole screen at a lower resolution.
By pressing the '9' key you can increase frame rate by using a lower level of graphic details (low - middle - high).

The color depth is only active if fullscreen is set to ON, elsewise the actual color depth of your desktop is used. There are some graphic drivers supporting OpenGL just at a color depth of 16! If the framerate of the game is very low, try to run fullscreen mode with a colordepth of 16.
