2 to 4 players pit their speed and accuracy against MANIAC'S infallible computer brain - and against each other.
But MANIAC hates to lose, so the computer automatically adjusts to the skill level of the players. The more skillfully you play, the harder it is to score; the less skillful the players, the easier the challenge.
The first challenge - MUSICAL MANIAC - is a great test of reaction and speed. MANIAC plays a series of random, rhythmic notes and suddenly - without warning - stops! You must anticipate it and react immediately to score. It's musical chairs for the ears!
The eyes and ears get a real workout playing SOUNDS ABOUND. Players try to count notes which continually vary in number, speed, and pitch. Light effects help you keep count.
Look sharp - it's LOOK TWICE - loaded with visual excitement. MANIAC sends out a sequence of dazzling light patterns and challenges you to spot a pattern when it is repeated
Ready to measure silence? MANIAC insists you try when you play YOUR TIME'S UP. A tone plays - then silence. You estimate when the silence is the same length as the original tone. Unnerving!
Sounds, lights, speed and action...the hand must be as quick as the eye and ear.
BEWARE...YOU CAN GO OUT OF YOUR MIND - WHEN YOU PLAY WITH A MANIAC!
