    • Basic rules
      • Select matching animal tiles to remove them from the field
        • Regular animal tiles must be matched as identical pairs.
        • Special tiles, which have colored backgrounds, represent the head and tail ends of an animal. Once matched, they show an image of the animal in full.
      • The tiles must be connectable by a single path which does not pass through any other tiles and no more than 2 right angles.
        • Adjacent pairs of tiles can also be selected and removed.
        • The path must be unobstructed. Tiles blocked by other non-identical tiles cannot be connected by a path.
        • The game brings the 2 tiles together as you clear them.
      • Assemble the puzzle.
        • Select a pair of pieces to have them trade places.
          • Keep swapping the pieces until they form the full image.
          • You can swap pieces from any position. They do not need to be adjacent pieces.
          • The puzzle starts off as a 3×3 grid but then grows as you progress through the game, becoming a 4×4 grid on level 3, a 5×5 grid on level 5, a 6×6 grid on level 7, and a 7×7 grid on level 9.
        • Use the eye button to preview the full image.
      • Remove all the tiles on the field and assemble the puzzle before the timer expires.
        • You start with 7 minutes on the clock on the first level & this time limit also applies to all subsequent levels.
        • You fail the level if you don’t finish in time.
    • Scoring
      • Scoring is cumulative in this game. Your score from one level carries over to the next.
        • Every pair of tiles you clear adds 50 points to your total score.
        • You also get a chain bonus based on the number of pairs you clear in rapid, consecutive order.
          • The base number of chain bonus points you receive is 30.
            • The longer the chain of pairs you remove, the higher your bonus.
            • The bonus sequence goes like: 30, 60, 100, 150, 210, 280, 360, 450, 550, 660, 780, 910, 1,050, 1,200, 1,360, 1,530, 1,710, 1,900, 2,100, etc.
          • You lose the bonus (and receive the points you’ve earned) if you take too long to clear another pair.
            • For this reason, save the special metallic head and tails tiles for last, as the image overlay eats time and causes you to lose your chain bonus.
            • Tiles move quickly in this game, so it is important to mix in some distant matches to give yourself more time to find other matches.
        • After finishing, you also receive 5 bonus points for every second remaining on the timer.
      • There are two ways to save your total score:
        • Play through all 10 levels.
        • End the playthrough after a game over.
    • Assistance
      • This game has 4 assistance options:
        • In the connecting game, you have 3:
          • Selecting the hint button will show you any valid pair of tiles.
          • Shuffles rearrange tiles on the field. This is useful if you want to make more obvious pairs.
          • Selecting the extra turns button lets you pair tiles whose paths have more than 2 right angle turns.
      • However, assistance cost points. Use them sparingly.
        • Hints cost 100 points.
        • Extra turns also cost 100 points.
        • Manual shuffles costs 200 points.
        • Previewing the image costs 200 points each time you look at the preview.
