  Section 1:Introduction
 "Tube" is A Bullfrog game(Same guys who later created "Sim Theme Park", 
"Theme Park World", "Sim Theme Park 2:SimCoaster", "Theme Park", among other
games) that was created as a test for a prospective employee to see what
he could do.  Though it was never commercially released, it is available
for download from The Home of the Underdogs(www.theunderdogs.org).  
  It is a complex racing game, between the difficult-to-figure-out controls,
the horde of enemy ships just waiting to blow your ship out of the sky,
nasty spirals, and even points where you have to drive while upside-down,
or at a ninety degree angle.  
  To help destroy some of these nasty obstacles, you are given a basic 
missile launcher, with the capability to enhance it with power-ups that allow
it to scatter-shoot, increase the firing rate, and even fire off 
heat-seekers!  
  All of these components create what is one of the finest games that I have
ever downloaded that was under a-meg-and-a-half.  It runs as well on a 486/66
as on a P3/700!
