Why not take a few minutes to kick back and relax while waiting for your work week to end? In this week’s game your goal is to safely move a trio of orbs from one side of game levels to the other, but it is not as easy as it sounds. Are you up to the challenge of solving the patterns to successfully navigate through the different levels and achieve ultimate victory?

Impasse

The object of the game is simple. Move your trio of orbs all the way to the right side of the level without moving over/connecting with the colored orbs you encounter along the way. What starts off as easy will quickly become more complicated, so be ready to think your way through! To move your trio of orbs all you need to do is use the four Arrow Keys for right, left, up, and down (all three orbs will move in tandem).

Note: You can see which level you are on using the indicator bar in the bottom half of the screen.

Getting closer…

When you successfully reach the right side of the level line up your trio of orbs with the green ones and use the Right Arrow Key to move over/connect with them. As soon as the connection occurs you will be automatically moved to the next level.

Note: The level will be started over if you happen to accidentally move over/connect with orbs while moving across the level.

Level Two steps things up a bit with more grey orbs to work your way around

Moving right along…

Success!

Level Three will be the last of the easy levels where all of the orbs remain stationary as you make your way across the level.

Level Four introduces a new component to the mix. The orange orbs will also shift as you move your trio of orbs up or down across the level. Levels beyond the fourth will mix the regular gray and the movable orange orbs together for even more fun (or frustration depending on your point of view!).
