More keys and lives can be collected than what is shown in the HUD.

Here is Important key combinations to complete the game (from the Japanese manual):
Pressing 1 and 2 key simultaneously in Game Over screen allow to continue game. Pressing 1 and 2 simultaneously for 4 seconds in gameplay restarts room and returns all lost puzzle objects and drops one life.
