User guide

The Bungeling Empire has confiscated gold chests. It's up to you to rescue them.

In this game, you control a stick figure and must collect all the gold in a level while avoiding guards who try to catch you.

After collecting all the gold, you need to escape by reaching the top of the highest ladder.

You have the ability to dig the bricks located on the ground around them, this is sometimes required to collect the gold.

Finally, if you find yourself in a situation where you can no longer move, you lose (for example, if your character is surrounded by two walls preventing you from digging or moving, while there is no ladder), however your character will not suffer damages from falls.
