ADVANCED LEVELS OF PLAY If you select a higher level of difficulty, or you advance to the higher Game Boards, you will be up against several new challenges. First of all, fewer "Dots" will be visible in each puzzle, or there will be no dots at all. Also, the spaces for the letters may not be displayed or certain high difficulty puzzles may also appear. On certain Game Boards, Feature Squares will appear. If you land on one of these, something crazy will happen. Stay cool and press the A Button at the right time and you'll "get your feet back on the ground". On the highest level of difficulty, watch out for Drop-Out Squares. Land on one of these and . . . well, just don't do it. 7 6.
