INTRODUCTION

A basic overview to the guide

Dr. Sloth has stored all the ingredients to make his Transmogrification Potions in a mysterious old evil laboratory full of nasty Korbats and Spyders. Your mission is to go in there armed with your trusty bat and smash as many boxes as possible to foil Sloth’s evil plans! When the potion bottles drop, pick them up, you never know what will happen!” – Neopets.com

CONTROLS

Here are the controls of the game
  • Left and Right arrow keys to move bat.
  • Spacebar to release the ball.

PLAYING THE GAME

Information on how to play the game

The object of the game is to clear the screen of all the blocks. You must hit the blocks the number of times indicated on the box (such as once for 1, twice for 2, etc.). Do not let your ball drop to the bottom of the screen! Use your bat to hit your ball back up. You have four balls/lives to play with. If you lose all four balls/lives, the game is over. You gain another ball/live by typing in “spiderbite” (if you look closely, you will notice a faint outline for a 4th roman numeral). Your number of lives is displayed on the rusty grandfather clock (four lives would represent a roman numeral of three, because the zero is included). Collect the falling money and potions with your bat. Each potion has a different effect. [see “The Potions and Effects” below].
