Lazarus has been abducted by the Blob Mob, who are intent on bringing this harmless creature to a sticky end. They’ve imprisoned him at the Blobfather’s (sorry) factory, where they are trying to squish him under a pile of heavy boxes.However, they’ve not accounted for Lazarus’s quick thinking, as the boxes can be used to build a stairway up to the power button that halts the machinery.Do you have the reactions needed to help Lazarus build a way up, or will the evilmob claim one more innocent victim?
Each level traps Lazarus in a pit of boxes stacked up on either side of the screen to contain him within the level. The arrow keys will move Lazarus left and right, and he will automatically jump onto boxes that are in his way.However, he can only jump the height of a single box, and stacks two or more boxes high will block his path.New boxes will periodically appear directly above Lazarus’s current position and fall vertically down from the top of the screen until they come to rest. This means that the player will be able to use Lazarus’s position to control where boxes fall and build a stairway up to the power button.
There will be four different types of boxes, increasing in weight and strength: cardboard,wood, metal, and stone. Falling boxes will come to rest on boxes that are stronger than them, but will crush boxes that are lighter. The type of each box is chosen at random, but the next box will be shown in the bottom-left corner of the window just before it appears. There will be a number of increasingly difficult levels, with higher stairways to build, and boxes that fall faster.When Lazarus gets squished, the level will restart to give the player another try.
