Gameplay

There are many different puzzles that are locked in the first few levels of the game. Once you get past these levels, there are more puzzles that are unlocked. You try to solve the puzzles to escape the city.

The player starts with a set of shapes on the grid, and can move any shape on the grid one square in any direction. On the top of the screen, a grid with a set of shapes shows what the player's current goal is. It can be a specific color of chain, or a shape, or a combination of both.

As in other similar puzzle games, the player has to use the shapes on the grid to create chains of the required color and shape. The player can create a chain by starting a new one with a shape that is adjacent to the last one.
