Nuts was inspired by the NES game "Nuts & Milk" but has been
written completely from scratch. The object of the game is to rescue
the kidnapped princess from the evil Nuts. Our hero Milk must complete
49 levels to achieve this. There are two different types of levels:
standard and bonus. In standard levels, Milk must collect all of the
fruits to open the house door and then reach it to rendezvous with his
fiancée. In bonus levels, Milk can pick up an extra life by collecting
ten pieces of fruit. Just remember that the evil Nuts and his servants
will not give them up so easily!

game is controlled by both joystick and keyboard. Use the joystick to
control the main character, SPACE pauses a level, ESC to quit the
current level and pressing SELECT switches between ingame music, sound
effects and pure silence. Also, the keyboard is used to enter a name
into the high-score table. From the title screen, use Option to view
the high-score table.
Milk can walk, jump, fall and
climb as can his rival Nuts but Milk has two strong advantages: he can
walk through the left and right borders and is able to fall at an
angle. On the other hand, if Milk falls from too great a distance, he
becomes dazed momentarily. Milk can make a longer jump or fall at an
angle when running. A further jump can be made from the trampoline by
pressing fire. It is impossible to jump when Milk is climbing.

that, Milk wins an extra life for every 5000 points.
