Game Play

As you explore one side of the cube, you must fill in the whole side with color this is called "zipping" in the game. Walking on a dark trail leaves a lighter trail behind you. When the area around the trail is light the area changes to a color. If you walk back over a line you have previously zipped, it will be "unzipped." Avoid the Eyes and other baddies. By zipping around boxes with objects in them, you get bonus points or become a devil and can now go smash heads in Pac-Man style. The game can be compared to Amidar.
