Starting the Game

Controls & indicators

The lower left corner of the screen shows what level number you are on.
The level select screen shows how many stages you have unlocked.
This game is inspired by Sokoban, but has a couple major differences:
You can push or pull batteries (which operate similarly to boxes that you can push in Sokoban).
You can move multiple batteries at the same time (whereas in Sokoban you can only move one at a time).
The goal of this game is to place each of the pink batteries onto a green battery receptacle.
Walk towards batteries and then face them and tap to select the entire row or column of them you are facing.
You can walk over empty receptacles.
When a battery is installed in a receptacle you can’t move through the area it occupies.
Batteries which are sitting loose on the board also act as obstacles unless you select them.
Neither you nor batteries can go through walls.
Vents & holes
Some levels have holes in the floors.
You can not walk over the holes, but the batteries you have selected can be carried across them.
Some levels have vent covers.
You can walk over each vent cover once, but after passing it the first time it turns into a hole in the floor.
This game has 20 levels which are unlocked sequentially.
You can go back and replay previously beat levels at any time.
Winning vs losing
You beat a level by installing all batteries into receptacles.
If you make a mistake you can press the move undo button in the upper right corner, or press the level select button in the upper left corner and start the level over from the beginning.
Use the layout to your advantage
Make sure you grab batteries from the correct direction to be able to move with them to the battery holder you want to install them in.
When battery holders have walls on 3 sides you know you must approach them from the side which does not have a wall while having the battery out in front of you.
Order of operations
Some stages have batteries which you have to insert in the correct order, with certain batteries being placed closing off a passage way to move to other batteries, meaning you have to place that battery last or place all the others it would block before.
Some batteries must be grabbed as parts of sets to move across holes in the floor.
Whenever you place a battery from a set onto a battery holder it is removed from you chain and can not be moved again.
If the battery you put in position is near you then batteries further out on the chain are automatically disconnected from your robot.
Individuals vs sets
On some stages you need to move the batteries as a set of 2 or 3 to be able to install them, whereas on some stages (like the upper left of level 17) you insert them one at a time.
When installing a large set at once take a parallel path and then try to put them all into position at once, otherwise when the first is placed in position it may block your path to install the other batteries in that set.
On level 19 you have to lay a battery in the upper right holder so that you make a set of 4 in a row that can be carried across the vent floor, as you can only cross the vent cover once.
The game is suited for players who like logic puzzle games inspired by Sokoban.
The game has no adult themed content.
