Description

Luxor-style ball popping is back; this time with butterflies. A series of colored balls are pushed around a track by a bug and it is your job to destroy those ball chains by shooting colored balls at them. To destroy part of the chain, you need to match up 3 or more balls of the same color with the one that you shoot. You need to destroy all the ball chains before they reach the end of the track.

The levels vary in appearance and some have obstacles to make it more difficult to hit the ball chains, such as tunnels or objects that are in the way. Levels may also have more than one ball chain at a time, on different tracks.

To help you on these levels, you can get powerups that do many different things, such as a cannon that blows up a lot of balls, or a multicolor powerup that makes many balls in a chain become the same color.

Your main goal, besides completing each level, is to free all of the butterflies. The butterflies are found every 6 levels. These levels are timed and have 3 ball chains rotating around the trapped butterfly on a circle track. You need to destroy all three chains before time runs out, rather than before they reach the end of the track.

When you free a butterfly, it will be added to your Butterfly Book where you can view the butterfly from many angles and see information about where it lives and what it looks like.
