Game Instructions –

Press Start to start playing. Use left/right on the D-Pad to choose the next block and the block location. B button to select a number when a bomb blows up.

You are laying down bombs, fuses, and starters to set off the bombs/fuses. You have a few seconds to highlight the next block: bomb (apple), fuse (lines), or starter (circle). After those few seconds, it will select the highlighted block, now you move left/right with Luigi, and his finger points to where the block will go. If there is already a block there, it will be pushed upwards. If you chose a starter, it will light a fuse which will travel down a line (it will only use up half of a + fuse piece and turn it to either a | or a -) until the line ends or it hits a bomb. You can chain multiple bombs along fuse lines. When a bomb blows up, it will rotate through a bunch of numbers:

Odds – bomb blows up
2 – 1-3 rows of bombs and fuses will expode/disappear
4 – 5-10 rows of bombs and fuses will explode/disappear
6 – 1-3 bombs will appear randomly
8 – bonus points will be awarded

As you play, your Level will increase and you’ll have less time to make decisions. If a column of bombs/fuses ever reaches the top of the screen, it’s game over. Play for a high score.
