III About Obulis
Obulis is a physics based action/puzzle game that contains 151 levels. The goal of each level is to drop all of the colored spheres into their like-colored pots. This is done by cutting the ropes/chains that suspend the spheres throughout the playfield. Obulis uses real-world physics, so spheres will behave in a natural manner. For example, gravity will pull spheres towards the ground. Spheres will collide and interact with one another and the playfield in a realistic fashion.
To cut a rope/chain, you must first select it using the left mouse button. When you are ready to cut the rope/chain, you can either click the right mouse button or press the space bar.
You can restart a level by clicking the 'retry' option in the upper left corner of the screen or by pressing the 'r' key.
The Map screen is where you select a level to play. Levels are represented as tiles. At first, only 1 level is available on each map. As you complete a level, new levels will become available. To play a level, simply click on the tile.
To win the game, you must acquire 6 medallions. Medallions are awarded after completing specific levels. An icon of each medallion can be seen on each map.
VII. Bonus Tiles
Completing certain levels will award the player with pieces of a bonus tile. Once the player finds all of the pieces of a given bonus tile, several new levels will become available in the game.
