I.     Introduction

This is a FAQ/Walkthrough for the Android game Quell.  It contains solutions
for all 104 puzzles and a mini-review.

*******************************************************************************
II.    Basic Gameplay

...............................................................................
A.  How to Play

The object of the game is to collect all the pearls with your raindrop in the
least amount of moves possible.

You move your raindrop by swiping your finger across the screen.

...............................................................................
B.  Objects

Raindrop

You move the raindrop around by swiping your finger across the screen.  Hitting
a spike will burst your raindrop.

Pearl

Your goal is to collect all the pearls in the level with your raindrop.

Spike

If you hit the pointy side of a spike then your raindrop will burst.

Switch

Hitting a switch will cause some spikes to change direction.

Block

The blocks with the male/female symbols can be pushed.  Blocks will activate
switches/gates if they pass through them.  Pushing two blocks together
(irregardless of "gender") will cause them to disappear.

Gate

Passing through a gate will activate it, meaning you can't pass through it
again.

Shelf

Each shelf hold three frames.

Frame

Each frame holds four levels.  A frame's color will change depending on your
progress:

Brown Frame = Not Complete
Silver Frame = Complete
Gold Frame = All Perfect

...............................................................................
C.  Basic Strategies

Basic Strategies

-  Try working out the solution backwards i.e. figure out which pearl you'll
   have to collect last

-  If you get stuck in a later level, go back and get some perfects in the
   early levels to earn hint tokens

-  You can earn hint coins in the Quell: Reflect trial

...............................................................................
D.  Hidden Jewels

An update to Quell added Hidden Jewels to all levels (except the tutorials).
Most Hidden Jewels are hidden inside of a block, the first time you hit the 
block it will crack, letting you know there is a Jewel inside.  Hit it two more
times to collect the Jewel.  Some Hidden Jewels can be found inside of Gates or
even sitting out in the open.

Two things to note: 

-  You don't have to solve the puzzle, once you've got the Jewel it's yours.

-  Once you collect the Jewel for a level it won't appear again.

move your raindrop around the board and collect all the pearls in the shortest
number of moves.  

The puzzles themselves are interesting and steadily increase in difficulty as
you progress through the game.  Hint tokens can be earned by completing puzzles
via the best solution and these can be spent to reveal a puzzle's solution when
you get stuck.

The graphics and music create a very relaxing atmosphere.  The graphics are
simple but well done and the rain pattering on the window in the background
is a nice touch.  The music has a nice, peaceful Oriental feel though the
limited number of tracks means you'll have to listen to the same tunes over
and over again.

Like Angry Birds, Quell's controls and bite-sized gaming make it perfect for
mobile devices.  I definitely recommend it to anyone with a smartphone or
tablet.

Pros
+  Perfectly suited for touchscreens
+  I love the atmosphere
+  Hints keep you from getting stuck
+  104 different puzzles

Cons
-  After a while the music will start to get on your nerves
