Gameplay

Guide an alien, that does does not stop moving, to the finish and get as many points as possible:

  • Brown fossils - These give you points.
  • Bombs - The white bomb sprites, these will kill you.
  • Blue Polygons - These are teleporters. The one with the F is the end of level teleporter, the other two you can use to move. Only one actually works, and you have to figure out which one.

Customize Level

Put the corresponding numbers in the corresponding area and then save it to a .txt file in data/pgg/custom/levels/ and it will appear in the file browser.

You can use notepad to make the levels (and maybe other text editors).

Picture those numbers as the DS screen, with each number represent an 16X16 spot on the screen. The definition of each number is below.
