Tips To Play
1. You are supposed to be certain about your movements and the kind of pattern you are following to take all the nuggets at that level.
2. After level 3 or 4, it becomes quite tough to move around without getting trapped or caught among the enemies. Well, there is a trick to get away with it. You have to be a bit confusing with your movements or directions so the game algorithm can be befooled. Understand that this movement of enemies detect your direction of movement but they do not respond very quickly if you do it deliberately and already know your own next move.
3. Play strategically to create a maze-like pattern in your movement to achieve all the nuggets. With increasing levels, the placement of nugget become more scattered and away from each other. That will require a lot of movement, short movements which lower your speed and increase the risk of being caught. You have to have a certain level of planning or movement pattern. Do not engage too much yourself in the thought before the movement.
