Friday Fun: Heru

By Akemi Iwaya on October 12th, 2012


This week’s game will test your ability to aim accurately, work quickly, and keep focused all at the same time. Just eliminate the entire chain marbles before it reaches the end of the track, but is it as easy to do as it sounds? There is only one way to find out!



The first level goes at a normal speed, but also allows you enough time to become familiar with game play. Your goal is to prevent the slithering chain of marbles from reaching the end of the track.

Points of interest on the game board are: the eye symbol which holds the current color of marble and acts as a launcher, the small curled section at the bottom of the eye symbol which shows the next color of marble that will be available for launching, and then the sink-hole at the end of the track.

Use your mouse to aim the arrow on the eye symbol at the desired section of the chain of marbles and left click to launch a marble into the chain. If your aim is accurate, then you will create a chain of three same color marbles or add a same color marble to a longer group such as the four yellow ones shown at the top of the screenshot. When you succeed those marbles will disintegrate and shorten the entire chain.


You can see where three green marbles just disintegrated along the bottom of the track in this screenshot.


Keep working on the chain as quickly as possible to shorten, then eliminate all the marbles.


When you eliminate the last of the marbles the last group will turn to a blur, race to the sink-hole, and rack up some extra points for you. Stay on guard though because the game board will automatically shift over to the next level in a matter of moments!


The track for the second level has two cross-over bridge points built into it and could cause a slight delay in launching a marble (if you are aiming for marble groups in those areas).


The third level steps things up a bit with two independent chains of marbles to monitor as you work to eliminate them. Good luck and have fun!

Note: If you do fail to eliminate all of the marbles in time on a level, then you will have to start the whole game over from the beginning.
