Excursions are now available to try out the fast-growing new sport of Mushroom Jumping. This takes place at the Violet Mushroom Asteroids, near Glrglblutz with its distinctive ring. Of course, Glrglblutz is at war with anything that moves, and may well shoot at you with one of their particulated fragmentoidal pulverisers. However, their aim is notoriously bad, and the recoil generally destroys the weapon plus surrounding countryside for a radius of five hundred kilometres or so. This always discourages them for a while.
The rules of Mushroom Jumping are, apart from not getting shot by Glrglblutz, that you should do the jump before the assault team, sent to take you out, scales up on ropes. Then you should find somewhere to land at the end of the fall. Finally – and this is important – you should survive this landing or your score will not count.
Should one of the gunners inadvertently demolish any part of their ring, you are urged to leave immediately at twice the speed of light to avoid the debris from the planet when it blows up.
