Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

US Version

See the block farthest to the right? Start by moving it straight up.

Then move the block shaped like a backward "S" and the L-shaped block up into the top-right corner.

Are things starting to look a little clearer now?

UK Version

Start off by moving the block furthest to the right upwards. After that move the Z-shaped block up into the top-right corner and put the dark green L-shaped block to the left of it.

US Version

Next, take hold of the two blocks directly above the treasure and move them both as far to the right as possible.

After that, move the remaining boot-shaped block down and to the right in a diagonal line.

UK Version

Continuing from Hint 1, move the two blocks lying along the bottom-left over to the bottom-right.

Following that, move the dark blue L-shaped block diagonally down next to them.

US Version

Now move the treasure diagonally from it's hiding space to the empty space you've created.

All you have to do now is rearrange a few pieces of rubble to make room for the treasure. Can you almost taste the riches?

UK Version

Continuing from Hint 2, move the precious stone diagonally up and to the right. Then move the three blocks lined up along the bottom into the bottom-left.

You should be able to work out the rest now.

US Version

The buried treasure is almost yours!

Move the blocks down toward the bottom-left corner, and don't leave any gaps between the rubble.

The path to the exit should now be clear. Move the treasure out through the opening to complete the puzzle.

UK Version

If you managed to follow the previous hints, the rest should be easy.

Move the three blocks in the top-right down to lie along the bottom-right, making sure that there are no gaps between them.

Now there should be nothing between the gem and the exit, so move that gemstone out to complete the puzzle.
