Gameplay instructions:

- Chicken will start moving forward automatically across the road from the bottom to the top

- Stop the chicken by pressing and holding the space bar

- Release the space bar to let the chicken continue moving forward

- Don't hit the cars; hitting any car will send your chicken back a few steps

- Cars reset and speed up randomly every time the chicken reaches the top

- SC is the score (number of times chicken has crossed the road)

- HITS keeps track of how many times a car has hit the chicken

- Try to cross 10 times with as fewer hits as possible

- Game will freeze after crossing 10 times.  The final number of hits will remain on screen

- Press ALT-4 during gameplay to stop the game and RUN to retry


 Can the chicken cross the road 10 times and remain harmless?
