  • Game Play
    • Matching stones
      • Open stones
        • You can only match open stones.
        • Open stones are stones which do not have a tile on top of them, and have at least one side (left or right) free.
      • Open stones vs closed stones
        • All stones have a gray background color, but closed stones have a darker gray background color.
        • You can only select open stones. Open stones show a light gray border around them when they are selected.
        • You can estimate how many stones are underneath a stone by how broad the border to the left and bottom part of the tile are.
    • Levels
      • The game contains 60 stages which are unlocked sequentially.
        • You can choose to replay previously beat levels from the level select screen if you want to try to improve your score on them.
      • Time
        • The first stage gives you 1:07 to beat it.
        • Later levels are more complex and give you more time to complete them.
        • If you do not beat the level before the timer runs out you fail it.
          • When you fail a level you can choose to either try again or end the game.
          • This game offers unlimited continues, though if you click “end game” it will erase your game play data and let you submit your game score.
    • Strategy
      • Try to remove tiles from the widest rows with the most tiles locked first & then go after the deepest columns.
      • Save isolated tiles on the periphery for when they can be matched with edge tiles in long runs where the internal tiles are closed off.
      • If you do not make a move for a period of time a matching pair of tiles will be highlighted with a bouncing movement pattern, which is the same pattern used to highlight tiles on a hint.
    • Scoring
      • Your game score is cumulative across levels.
      • Scoring points
        • Each tile pair you make is worth 20 points.
        • Each second you have remaining when you complete a level is worth 3 points.
