You see, the games are played in three adjacent windows so that they can rub shoulders with, and subsequently affect, the others. Stick will bash Square's blocks, Circle's victims will clear Stick's enemies, and the smoke from burnt Squares will kill Circle's assailants. While three separate players can manipulate it, played alone it becomes a masterwork of forward planning as you record a run in one puzzle to replay later and help your score in another. Whether you want your mind frazzled or just some simple fun, Maboshi is what you need. An essential purchase.
