* Warning: The hard difficulty option is not recommended and should not be used.  It requires players to learn & master each & every move of the game in sequence before progressing to any new gameplay.  New players will quickly abandon such a game.  Our beta tests proved that SAE must be set to normal difficulty in order to hold the interest of new players.  A preferred means of difficulty increase is to use the 3 lives option, whereas players can only make 2 mistakes.  (The game difficulty DIP switch setting applies to all 3 skill levels.)
