*Reinforced Blocks* These blocks are surrounded by a steel frame. They must be matched once to destroy their reinforcement frame, which will then allow them to behave like normal blocks. (Note this does not help advance you advance to the next level.)
*Frozen Blocks* These blocks are encased in ice and cannot be swapped around. Other blocks must be carefully matched around them to clear them. Once these matched blocks get to the top of the play field, they will melt!
Doodle Doug is a game that tests your ability to anticipate as well as your ability to strategize.
Up Arrow or ‘W’ moves up. Down Arrow or ‘S’ moves you down. Left Arrow or ‘A’ moves you left. Right Arrow or ‘D’ moves you right. Space Bar or Ctrl plants a bomb.
Help Doug dig his way through the dirt, collecting treasure along the way. Watch out, enemies are after Doug and will stop at nothing to keep him away from the gems! Avoid the bad guys, and collect all the gems to complete each level. The quicker you complete the level, the more points you get!
Doug has 3 lives (hearts). Each time you are attacked by a monster, you lose on heart. If you are attacked 3 times, the game is over, so be careful!
There are certain areas of the play field that sparkle. These areas contain surprises (both good and bad) that can include things such as: speed boost or decrease, monster boost or decrease, extra bombs, bonus points, and more! You do not have to dig up these surprises to finish the level, so do so at your own risk!
You start with 6 bombs and can pick more up in most levels. Each bomb is on a 3 second delay, and the explosion destroys all enemies and dirt around it (as well as Doug, so be careful!).
