RIGHT CLICK — erase placed tiles

ESC — quit the level. alternative to using enter to restart

BACKSPACE — reset placed tiles

A notice to those who wish to explore the mausoleum in its entirety: level 7 features a most tricky movement on the action bar. Listen closely, as this "jump" is obscured by the edge of the view, making it rather... troublesome.

Below your ghastly window into the crypt lies the action bar. There a skeleton's movements are made clear. Yes... use this insider knowledge to plan ahead; to maneuver each wayward bag of bones to safety.

On the right of your accursed view is the tile graveyard.  There lies your available tiles for the level, each one appearing and disappearing with the click of your grisly finger. Skulls then, are rewarded for your performance. A lich who has mastered the mausoleum will receive 3 skulls upon completion, for using  as few tiles as possible to guide the skeleton to safety. Those who are less... skilled... will find their skull count lacking.
