How to Play Zorx
If you don't know the rules for zorx, then you have been
living in a cave for a very long time. However, just
in case you have, here is how to play. Since zorx does not yet
support multi-player mode, this temporary web page (it will
eventually be replaced by in-game instructions) will only explain
how to play a single-player game.
The object of the game is to clear the screen of all bubbles.
You control the little "cannon" at the bottom of
the screen (at the moment, the canon is represented by a white
triangle). Use the left, right and up arrow keys to control it.
Then, use the control button to shoot the bubble held by the cannon.
The bubble displayed in the bottom right corner is the bubble which
will next be loaded into the canon.
When you shoot, the bubble follows the direction in which the cannon
was facing. It bounces of the side walls and "sticks" to the first bubble
(or ceiling) that it hits. If, when you shoot a bubble, it matches colours
with at least 2 more bubbles in a row, then the bubbles will pop and
disappear. Also, if any bubbles are left suspended in mid-air because of
the pop, they will fall away, never to be seen again (at least in
single-player mode). The game is over when you either clear away all the
bubbles (that's called winning) or one of your bubbles attaches itself
below the bottom line (that's called losing).
The rules are actually slightly more complicated, but I haven't
implemented all of them, so this should be enough to go by for now.
