Aim and rules of the game

The main idea of the game is to open door to the next room of the pharaon tomb moving characters on the entrance. Game field size is equal to 8x8. You can swap two neighboring characters on one line only if a new combination of two or three same characters will be formed after the swap. Such rows will disappear, and a new place will be filled by characters that fall over. Missing characters are generated randomly. You get points for the vanished characters. Points for a characters combination counts by the formula: L+(L+1)^(N-3). Points number will never be more than 20*L*N, where N - is a number of characters in the combination, and L - номер уровня. To get to the next level you have to remove a certain number of characters (different at each level). There is a colored status line at the bottom of the game's window, which shows how much characters you have already removed, and how much you have to remove to get to the next level.

1st level - 500
2nd level - 450
3rd level - 400
4th level - 350
5th level - 300
6th and next levels - 50*(L+1)

There are just 6 types of characters on the first game level. A new type of characters is added with each new level, but it will never be more than 10 types of characters (ie beginning from the 5th level, without taking into account the special characters, there will be 10 different types of characters in the game).

Player gets a "free" character, for each combination of 4 and more characters and for passing each quater of the level, starting from the 2nd level. "Free" character - is a normal character (randomly generated), which is in the player's "pocket", and if necessary it can be inserted to any place by the player instead of the character that is already occupy that place.

Player gets a "universal key", for each combination of 5 and more characters and for passing each third part of the level, starting from the 3rd level. "Universal key" is suitable for any combination of characters and several different combinations at the same time.

Player gets a "space bender", for each combination of 6 and more characters and for passing each half of the level, starting from the 4th level. "Space bender", when it used, allows to make 3 moves diagonally (not necessarily each after each other).

Player can't have more than 1 additional character of each type (1 simle, 1 joker and 1 bender).

The game is over, if player can't make even one combination of characters.
