These switches were determined the old-fashioned way -- by flipping different
switches and turning the game on in test mode to see what settings have changed.
 
If anyone can correct any of this information, or help me label the unidentified
switches, please e-mail me at holcomb@halcyon.com.
 
Thanks,
--Dave Holcomb

* Note: I assume these are difficulty levels for the game.
 
** Note: I guess this is the freeze function.  When SW6 is ON, the game will
freeze with the garbage pattern on the screen after powerup, provided SW1 is
OFF (Game Mode) and the Test Switch is OFF.
