User Guide

Glubies are little and cute creatures, but they are so stupid! You have to guide some Glubies through several levels with the help of a couple of items and solve some of the puzzles needed to reach the goal.


Synaptic is the world leader in the pharmaceutic field.

Its last top-secret research is about to revolution the medecine, glubies are born. Glubies are the product of the fusion between organic cells and high performances nanorobots. The properties of cells such as antibodies, added to the nanorobots intelligence, make the cell healing factor multiply by 1000! Recent studies show that glubies could heal every known desease!

The creatures (of size of a millionth of millimeter), are stored on a mini robotic planet specially build for that, the Glubb planet.

You run inside just in time too see a shadow silhouette run off.
