HOW TO PLAY
You will clear the level clearing all gems from the play field
Each time you start a level you will get some time to solve it, this time increases for higher levels. If you complete the level before the time ends, the remaining seconds will be transformed into points otherwise the game will start to steal your points until you complete the game or until your points reaches zero. The stolen points for each missing seconds depends on the difficulty and the current level you are playing (higher levels means higher stolen points).
When the game ends, and you have got a good score, you will be prompted to insert your name to enter the high score, even if you have quited the game from the pause menu.
The little square at the bottom of the play field will let you enter the pause screen, keep in mind that every time you enter the pause screen one second will be subtracted from the actual time.
From this screen you can resume the game or quit it.
The levels are generated randomly this means that each game will be different from the previous one!
You can download a demo of the game with a limited play time of 5 minutes, after the time expires you have to quit the game but you can try it for further five minutes, there is no limit on how many times you can try the game before you decide to purchase it. Please try before you buy!
