Underneath the Play button are buttons for how to play Help, High Scores, and More Games.
The lower left corner of the welcome screen has a language select dropdown.
The lower right corner of the welcome screen has buttons for social media sharing & reading game developer information.
Use your mouse left click button to select a card from the tableau or reserves to play.
Tap a card on the screen with a finger to play it.
Controls & indicators
Across the top center the game shows current level number, cumulative game score, and remaining level timer.
The upper left corner has buttons to pause the game and switch to full screen play.
The upper right corner has buttons to control game sounds and music.
The special cards are located below the sound and music controls.
The reserves and waste pile are at the bottom of the screen.
In the lower right corner there is a chain bonus indicator and a button for undoing your most recent move.
37 cards are dealt to the tableau.
10 cards are dealt face up at the bottom of the 3 pyramids.
27 cards are dealt higher up on the pyramids, with the cards face down.
On the first stage 28 cards are dealt to the reserves, with one of those being on the waste pile.
Subsequent stages give you fewer card in the reserves. You only have 24 cards in the reserves on the final stage.
Select cards from the tableau which are numerically adjacent to the top card on the waste pile.
The deck wraps – an Ace can connect to both 2 and King.
This game has 4 different special cards.
4 suits – wild card which can be played at any time. You can then play any card on top of a wild card.
Airplane – the golden card doubles your score.
Flipped card – makes the remaining face down cards temporarily visible.
Chain – the chain card adds 1 to your chain bonus.
Special cards can be located anywhere in the reserves or tableau.
If you finish a level with special cards you carry them over to the next level.
You can carry multiple of the same special card.
This game has 10 levels.
You can’t replay previously beat levels without starting the game over at the first level.
The board layout is the same across levels except you get fewer cards in reserves on later levels.
You are given 4 minutes to beat each level.
You beat a level by clearing the tableau of cards before the timer runs out.
If you run out of moves an End Game button will appear.
If you click that button you can submit your game score, but it will erase your gameplay data.
If you want to retry the current level click the browser refresh button to reload the game instead of clicking the End Game button. Then when you click on play you can start again from the last level you played.
Your game score is cumulative across levels.
Each card you remove from the tableau is worth 100 points.
If you make consecutive moves on the tableau without drawing from the reserves in between you activate a chain bonus that multiplies your base score.
For example, a chain bonus of 2 would make a card worth 150 points & a chain bonus of 3 would be worth 200.
You do not lose the chain bonus by using one of your special cards. The wildcard is great for keeping the chain bonus going.
Your chain bonus resets at the start of each level.
Unused cards in the reserves are worth 50 points each.
Each second you have remaining when you beat a level is worth 2 points.
Try to work on cards across the Tripeaks so that you leave many available play options, rather than working away most of the tableau while leaving one side with cards 3 or 4 levels deep.
Try to maximize the diversity of cards showing on the tableau. For example, if you have a 4 atop the waste pile and there are three 3 cards on the tableau it makes more sense to take out one of the 3 cards rather than going after a 5, 6 combo, so that you have more play options available going forward.
Use the chain bonus to maximize your game score.
If you do not feel you can build a long chain on a particular level save the wildcard for the next stage.
Use the golden card, chain bonus, and wildcard when you already have a long chain going.
You can use multiple wild cards keeping a single chain going within a level.
The game is suited for players who like Tripeaks Solitaire card games.
The game has no adult themed content.
