Basic Physics Tutorial
Before time runs out, collect the number of diamonds needed to open the exit and go to the next level. Watch out for falling objects and enemies. Use the stylus or the directional pad to walk over a diamond to collect it. You can do many things without moving by using the 'grab/push' option. Use this to: collect diamonds or inventory objects; clear a space; push objects without moving! To grab or push: hold down the Action Button and at the same time, move the stylus or directional pad in the desired direction. The Action Button is the button to the LEFT of the directional pad. The Selection Button is the button to the RIGHT of the directional pad (PocketPC/Palm) or the * key (Smartphone). If you become trapped, tap on the SKULL to restart the level (PocketPC/Palm) or press Softkey1(Smartphone)... forfeiting a life. Tap on the red MENU button (PocketPC/Palm) or press Softkey2 (Smartphone) - (which pauses the game) then Setting/Controls to: set when hints are displayed; set button controls; adjust music and SFX. Or, you can return to the World Map at any time this way as well. Tap on the QUESTION MARK „?” near the SKULL (PocketPC/Palm) or select it from the ingame menu (Smartphone) to see the hint for the level you are playing.
Bonuses provide extra lives, additional time or double the amount of extra time. Note: They will explode if they fall!
Falling Objects Tutorial
As you clear space and collect diamonds, beware of falling objects. If you become trapped, tap on the SKULL to restart the level ... forfeiting a life.
Stacking Objects Tutorial
Not all objects behave in the same way. Some stack one on the other and defy gravity. For example, a sack does not roll off the top of another sack nor does a basket fall from the top of another basket.
First Enemy Tutorial
Enemies move in predictable patters, they do not attack.
Slay First Enemy Tutorial
Drop objects on enemies or block their path with an object or even tools such as the hammer or shoe from inventory (if you have collected them earlier). Use the Select Button to highlight a tool, then press and hold down the Action Button while using the directional pad or stylus to place it in an empty space.
Make Diamonds Tutorial
Some enemies will produce diamonds if they are killed. Try dropping an object on one at just the right moment by digging the dirt from beneath the pumpkin/acorn located above the top left corner of the chamber in which the enemy is moving. To do that, stand one row lower than the row with the 4 pumpkins/acorns making sure you are to the left of the flower under that pumpkin/acorn. Next, while keeping the Action Button (LEFT Button - PocketPC/Palm or * key – Smartphone ) pressed down, select the right directional command with the joy pad or stylus just as the enemy (moving to the left on the bottom of the chamber) is about to move under where the pumpkin/acorn will fall when you remove the dirt and flower.
Doors and Keys Tutorial
To open a locked door you first must collect a key that is the same color as that door. Simply walk over the key to collect it and it will be added to your inventory. The right key is automatically used when you enter the matching door.
Gates and Swithes Tutorial
Use a switch to open or close a gate. Stand next to the side, top or bottom of the switch and then press and hold down the Action Button (LEFT Button - PocketPC/Palm or * key – Smartphone ) while moving the joy pad or stylus towards the switch. Be careful, a switch may control more than one gate!
Block Amoebas Tutorial
Amoebas will turn into diamonds if they can't grow any more. Just block their way! Careful, do not let the Amoeba block your path. If you become trapped, tap on the SKULL to restart the level ... forfeiting a life. Rockford(TM) or Crystal(TM) can be used to contain Amoebas as can walls, pumpkins, acorns, barrels, ice cubes and skulls.
Deadly Lava Tutorial
Watch out for lava as it grows. It is deadly, do not touch!
Holding Walls Tutorial
Holding Walls can store objects (pumpkins, acorns, barrels, ice cubes and skulls) as well as diamonds in them until space is cleared below. Once space is cleared, the object hidden in the Holding Wall will now appear, exactly as it was prior to landing in the Holding Wall.
Magic Walls Tutorial
If there is space below a Magic Wall it will let certain objects (pumpkins, acorns, barrels, ice cubes and skulls) as well as diamonds pass through. When these objects fall through a Magic Wall they are transformed from one to the other. For example, in the Swamp World, a pumpkin will turn into a diamond if it falls through the Magic Wall and a diamond will turn into a pumpkin.
Reverse Controls Tutorial
After you walk over the Reverse Control potion, all directional commands will have the opposite effect than they normally would. Walk over another Reverse Control potion bottle to get things back to normal.
Freeze Enemies Tutorial
Walk over the Freeze bonus and enemies will become frozen for a while.
Collect Bombs by walking over them or using grab to take them. They are then added to inventory. They explode after the fuse burns down or they fall. To place/drop a bomb, position yourself on screen, hold down the Action Button and select the desired direction. If you have other inventory items, first use the Select Button to cycle through the items until the desired one is highlighted. Bombs can only be placed in an empty space. They can be kicked ONLY when their fuse is lit.
Collect Hammers by walking over them or using "grab" to take them. They are then added to inventory. Each can be used only once to smash objetcs (pumpkins, acorns, barrels, ice cubes and skulls). They can be collected and then dropped again in the level in an empty space to block enemies if you'd like. To use one, first position yourself, hold down the Action Button and select the desired direction= towards the object you wish to smash. If you have other inventory items, first use the Select Button to cycle through the items until the desired one is highlighted.
Collect Boots by walking over them or using grab to take them. They are then added to inventory. Each one can be used to kick one item e.g. pumpkins, acorns, barrels, ice cubes and skulls, bomb, TNT. They can be collected and then dropped again in the level in an empty space to block enemies if you'd like. Objects kicked defy gravity. To kick an object, position yourself next to it, hold down the Action Button and select the desired direction= towards the item you wish to kick.
TNT and Detonator Tutorial
To explode ALL Dynamite bundles in the level at the same time, stand over a Detonator and press down and hold the Action Button (LEFT) while also giving the adown directional commandA with either the joy pad or the stylus. Dynamite bundles can be pushed, but not collected. Watch out! Detonators can be activated by falling objects.
Screen Rotation Tutorial
To rotate the top of the screen 90 degrees, to the right, move to the left side of the Rotation Wheel. Then press and hold down the Action Button (LEFT) and press the joy pad or move the stylus towards the Rotation Wheel (in this example) to the right. The screen will rotate to the right. Watch out! Objects shift to adjust to the new center of gravity. (Stand on the right side of the Rotation Wheel to turn the screen to the left.)
