Description

Karu is a marble shooter game, where the objective is to match spheres of the same color to make them disappear. The multi-colored spheres fall from the sky, and the player collects them moving a mouse-controlled idol statue sideways, swallowing the marbles with a gaping mouth and storing them in the torso, increasing its height. If the idol's head touches the top of the screen, the game is over.

The stored marbles have to be used to make matches, by shooting them to the bottom of the screen, where a string of spheres keeps moving on a twisted track towards the top. If they manage to invade the upper field, the game is over. The goal of each level is to fill a meter with matches before this happens.

Some power-ups fall from the sky as well, and can be deployed by the same manner. The lightning bolt destroys a line of marbles in its path. The meteorite shower breaks a random number of spheres. The color extinct power eliminates all the marbles that share its color. The halt power stops the marble movement for a few seconds. The back arrow makes the line move backwards. The digest power consumes all the balls stored inside the statue stomach. The snail makes the marbles move slowly. The rainbow ball matches any color. The fireball explodes a group of spheres. The snake slayer removes a whole string of marbles.

An extra life is added at each 50.000 points. Each marble removed is worth 10 points, and a chain reaction multiplies its value. Coins sometimes appear, are worth 500 points and increase the meter by 10% after being collected.
