The problem is when you get pushed off, that's explained in the tutorial.

I love it because it explains just enough for me to play, but doesn't bog me down in numbers (matching 3 swords will do 27.3 damage. The red ball does 40 damage but the green one only does 12.25 damage. BLEH). I do wish there was a wiki page with all this info on it.

Are you sure you're not experiencing a PEBKAC?

In the good old days of gaming, people didn't expect a manual or tutorial, they would enjoy the process of figuring the game out for themselves. Those days may be behind us, though.

If you get pushed to the left, game over and you keep any resources or exp that you picked up.

In front of a monster, match swords or staves.
In front of a chest or door, match keys.
Matching anything else is a resource to spend outside in the area you wake up in to upgrade your abilities.
Items that look like weapons or balls, use them against monsters.
Items that look like keys, use them as keys.
Items that look like food, pushes everything at top to the right, thus giving you more time.
Items that look like scrolls, click on them and the board changes a bit to help you.

Good luck.
So are there any significant differences between the different colored orbs?

Lol ! +1

I'm sick of modern day gamers insisting that devs ruin games by making every mechanic clear at the outset. Please let us discover the mechanic using our heads. Hence a game rather than some boring interactive experience.

No disrespect to anyone living or dead ..

Yes they do different damage.

We are very different people. I loved buying a game like Falcon 3.0, opening the box and finding a manual the size of War and Peace which I could toss on the toilet and spend many intimate moments with.
