HOW IT WORKS?

This is you, the player, named Murphy. You will have to collect a set number of Infotrons (see below) in each level (can be zero) before you can leave through the Exit (see below). Watch out for the many hazards around, and make use of all the helpful objects you can find, it's the only way to survive in the "cruel" world of Supaplex.

an orange smiling face - MURPHY

This is you, the player, named Murphy. You will have to collect a set number of Infotrons (see below) in each level (can be zero) before you can leave through the Exit (see below). Watch out for the many hazards around, and make use of all the helpful objects you can find, it's the only way to survive in the "cruel" world of Supaplex.

a green circuit board - BASE

This is the most common one around. It's main function is keeping things (Zonks, Murphy (only when there's gravity), Orange Disks) from falling down. Murphy can freely walk through this, doing so, he "eats" it away, leaving a void behind (where all those nasty sniksnaks and electrons can move through). apart from Murphy nothing can pass through this.

a round rock - ZONK

This is another very common obstacle (and usually a very unpleasant one) a Zonk tends to fall down whenever possible(i.e. there is a void underneath). Be careful, when a Zonk falls on you (Murphy) you will explode (read: die). Murphy can push Zonks to the side (not up and down) if nothing is blocking the Zonk (i.e. there is a void on the other side). Murphy can only push one Zonk at a time, so watch out when dropping Zonks next to each other! With some good timing, you can also drop Zonks on Electrons (see below) or Snik-snaks (see below) which will explode (and not bother you again). Zonks have the nasty habit of falling SIDEWAYS off Ram-Chips (see below) and other Zonks if possible (i.e. there is a void to the side), on all other objects the Zonks will lie steady.

three colored ovals which are connected at the center of the picture and extend to the edges - INFOTRON

These are very important in almost every level. You need to collect a set number of these before you can leave the level via the Exit (see below). Look on the bottom of the game screen to see how many you need to collect. To pick one up, simply walk over it, or (when standing next to it, in any direction) press (and hold) spacebar, and then press the arrow key corresponding with the direction the Infotron is in.
