Just so you know what game you're playing. These tiles will clear to show the game menu.
The game menu. On the right are two status bars, one shows what you're carrying - tins of spinach, or keys., the other shows the hearts collected.
This is the start of the game. that bird flies in front of us. The status bar shows 1 tin of spinach, or one life. The characters are much bigger than usual as you can see.
Look! Popeye can go behind things, in this case behind the steps which is not a lot of use but still looks cool. Bluto takes a life off Popeye whenever they meet so avoid him
Popeye goes through a doorway and can climb the rope
He's been upstairs and has collected a key, now he's going down
Popeye's behind the door. He can get off that rope and with the right key open the door to collect more hearts and spinach
