Here's a video on how the instructions show in the game. Sorry the video is a little long. Basically, the game stops you watch and need to hit Continue to get back to the game.

Here's a video of the in-game instructions. Basially, the game stops and player will need to click continue to get back to game play.

It's an interesting idea that can be great if done right.

Only other example I could think of:

Whistler's Brother by Broderbund (I played it on the C64 a few years back... )

You play Whistler and have to get your brother safely across each screen. Naturally, he's too busy reading his newspaper to pay attention where he's going so you can whistle to get his attention and (kind of) get him to head in your general vicinity...

A unique and very evil game.

It sounds like the tutorial should work well enough. I can't watch the video at the moment but I will as soon as I can
