Now this is more like it
The FM Towns port is the only version that retains the naked women present in the original Japanese arcade release
The middle platform is moving, need to get the timing right
Using a bomb to get rid of the last block
Umm, thanks for the... bonus Karen
Level 7, this stage is really difficult, you need to get the timing absolutely spot on otherwise you'll just take out 2 instead of 3 blocks

The game's Start screen. Before the 'Press Start' text is displayed the game offers the chance to load saved data.
It's not much of a menu but there are two ways to play and this is how the game selects between them
This is the start of a Freeplay game. Here the player selects the game they want to play. At the beginning the player can choose any of the gold balls on the left but the coloured bricks are locked
Having selected a ball there's a further level of selection to go through. There are eight puzzles per character in the story mode and this selects one of the eight pumpkin level puzzles
This is the first puzzle at the pumpkin level. All the pumpkin puzzles form a simple tutorial level.
In Freeplay the second level is Cat, just as in the Story game.
The start of a Story Game. Where the player must solve eight puzzles in each of eight levels. The letters E-N-D are cycled at the end of the text to show there's nothing else to do here
A puzzle solved. The level character shows signs of rage as the score mounts up.
Playing the Story game. when a level is cleared the player gets to see all the game's characters. Pumpkin does not look happy, he's been beaten and will be replaced by a tombstone
In Story Mode the characters taunt the player at the start of each level
As the puzzles get harder they incorporate moving blocks/platforms
Stages are arranged in a hierarchical tree, so you can choose your way
There's pictures of girls in this port as well, but contrary to the Japanese arcade and FM Towns versions, it's non-erotic manga-style artwork here
Can't clear, so game over

The opening level
An odd number of blocks is a challenge here
Bonuses are awarded for completing a level
This one's pretty simple really
And this is our 'reward' for finishing a block of 4 levels
World 2 moves away from straight block graphics
You get 2 re-tries
Careful how you pair up the different blue colours here
Being left with only 1 of any block is disaster
