How to Play
Learn the block busting basics!
Using your stylus and the Nintendo DS buttons, solving puzzles is a cinch! Check out the pointers below and then try these demos yourself.
How to Remove
Hold X button or up on the D-pad and tap a cube to make it go bye-bye. Don't take out the wrong pieces though, or you'll get a strike!
How to Mark
When you know a cube is part of your prize underneath, hold Y button or right on the D-pad when you tap to mark it.
See this on a cube and you know that number of continuous cubes belong in the row or column. Figuring out which ones to keep is up to you!
Does your puzzle have circle numbers? That means there are two groups separated by space, and one or more cubes in that row need to skidaddle!
A block with square numbers has three or more groupings in its row. Can you figure out which cubes need to go? Just use your noggin'!
You'll need these slicers to get a peek inside the blocks-you're not just smashing cubes without a strategy here! Get a closer look at which cubes should stay and which ones should go.
