General Tips

  • When starting a game for the first time, you can choose between two difficulties: Casual and Advanced. Casual features zones of interest being indicated, fast hint and puzzle skip recharges, and an interactive tutorial. Advanced features zones of interest not being indicated, slow hint and puzzle skip recharges, and no interactive tutorial.
  • The Menu button is located in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on this to pause your game or access the menu at any point during gameplay.
  • Also located in the lower left corner of the screen is the Hint button. Hints are unlimited, but will require time to recharge. During puzzles, the Hint button will become the Skip button. You will have to wait a predetermined amount of time before you can use it, however.
