See if you are smarter than a rock. I have heard it's been practicing...
The basic game play involves clicking on the buttons, in the correct ascending order, as first shown before the numbers are hidden from view. You also have to avoid clicking on the booby-trap bomb that will cause a quick end to all your lives you have earned.
You start with zero lives, and as you complete each screen, you are awarded an extra life. If you click a tile out of its designated order, you will loose a hard earned life. ie in each screen you can only gain one life, but could possibly loose many.
Each level must be attempted two times, to ensure the first time wasn't a fluke. And just to add to the interest, the second go has a shorter default time of showing you where everything is, in addition to the addition of a bomb as a booby trap. This bomb will be shown as a red button during the display phase.
You can wait till the end of the display time OR you can click on the first (ie No. 1) tile to start the game off, and earn bonus points. The sooner you start the game off before the allocated time, the greater the bonus points. Also, during the playing phase (ie selecting the tiles in the correct order) you will loose points so dont take any more time than you need if you wish to acheived a high score.
A lot of game performance statistics are included so as to allow you to monitor your performance over time or further compare yourself with other players. As a starter, there is a leader board of top scores. But not simply the top 3 or 5 or 10. It tracks the top 20! It will also display your personel best scores and also the WORST scores for all the players, so you can see who has performed the worst, ever.
In addition to the memory test side, on the second attempt of each level, a "bomb" is added into the mix, which if pressed, will actually cancel out ALL your remaining lives ending the game then and there. I would highly recommend simply avoiding pressing it.
At first glance it may appear to be based more around memory abilities, however, strategy will get you far. For example, by starting early in your answer, the bonus points are huge. Additionally, having a strategy on how to "remember" all the locations in order will also take you much further. For example, you may find it easier to remember that the ascending order of each block just happens to be in an anti-clockwise circle. Another strategy may to to simply remember all but the last one, such that when you only have one left, there is only one thing you can press. Unless, you are in the second phase where a bomb has also been added...
With over 30 levels, you ain't going to run out of challenges before you run out of lives.
Try the DEMO version and experience the challenge first hand. Most features are enabled except for actual player statistics, the top five places on the leader board are hidden and there is a random "bomb" added to latter screens.
