How To Play! 

It's pretty simple in concept, but tricky in practice. Move the 
blocks on the large board so they match the pattern on the small 
board. Problem is, you can only jump to an adjacent block. The 
long-term aim is to achieve the highest score possible. Don't 
forget to complete the screen quickly to get those bonus points! 


Match the pattern on the small grid, by shifting the 'cubes' 
on the big grid.

Use the fire button to throw away anything about to hit you.  You 
can only use the fire button when you have score to 'spend'. 
The more you use it, the more score it costs.

There is a limited time to complete the pattern.  When time gets 
low, the border of the small grid flashes - you have about 10 
seconds after that.  If you complete the screen before that, you 
get bonus points depending on how much time is remaining.  If the 
time runs out, the pattern on the small grid changes and you're 
back to square 1.  When the time runs out, you can no longer score 
points on that screen.

Jump on the fruit for bonus points, and sometimes... depending on 
some secret pattern ... an extra life.

Jump on the hatching eggs to kill them.

Emulation on mobile devices will drain your battery quite fast. I recommend playing while device is plugged into charger.
