*Note that the self-destruct and pull keys are redefinable, if you forget the keys you changed them to then go to Options and redefine the keys.*
KEY ACTION 2nd Self Destruct Alpha Pull a block Arrow keys Move figure/push a block
Objective-Advance your figure(little +) to the big plus sign by pushing and pulling the white moveable blocks out of the way. Push blocks by running into them, use assigned key to pull them.
Other blocks- Teleports-The small x is the one that warps you, the x with dots around the corners is where you go.Don't forget that teleports are only one way and that you can pull blocks.
- Scoring is based on two things. 1)How efficient you are,ie. time vs work done. 2)How well you solve the puzzle,ie. your number of moves vs. lowest possible number of moves. The two parts are averaged together to get an integer score from 0-10.
