    There are no FAQs or walkthroughs for this anywhere, and it's pretty hard. I
    decided that since no one did it it's because the puzzle mode is frustrating at
    some point, because people try it and just stop thinking it will be too hard.
    And since I could finish it, maybe I should show to the world how possible it
    is. Well, I can detail more in the next version (IF I do any update).
    
    This game wasn't by far the first one of the genre I've played. But it was the
    first one that made me give up so many times. And I'm not a person who run from
    the fate of succedding and defeating enemies that I failed before.
    
    I'm Brazilian, so I hope my english is good enough for everyone to understand.
    
    Last, puzzle games are just so amazing.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      II- Story                                                           [00002]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Dr. Robotnik's robots are testing the machine, if I'm not mistaken. Well, it's
    really not important.
    
    In case you're wandering, there are 30 lessons to be played. Some of them are
    very challenging. You can call the lessons stages, levels, rounds, whatever.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      III- Basics                                                         [00003]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Well, how to play can always help. So, even if you already know how to play,
    this section can prove useful by making you remember a command or two.
    
    Oh, I'm not covering scoring, attacking, opponents, second screen, big bean and
    that big-bunny-eared bean that comes in other modes (I called it 'weird' on
    password section). Puzzle mode has only one screen, 12 beans-high, 6 beans-
    large, with a pre-set number of beans already wandering for your solution, most
    of the times (some can make you go away from the solution, there are tricks).
    
    Directional: it moves your pair of beans, as it will slowly fall, press left or
    right to move it in these directions, and down if you want to accelerate the
    fall. You can see on 'Next' shown on right to see what will come next.
    
    Button 1: turn your pair to the left, like a wheel, centered on the bean that
    comes to the screen first.
    
    Button 2: Same of 1, except that the wheel is turned right.
    
    Pause: if you want to quit the level, this option will show when you pause the
    game. Select yes to see the password and then restart the lesson.
    
    Reset: the game when reseted go back to the title screen, and it doesn't keep
    the passwords this way.
    
    Dropping pairs making four or more beans get together (vertically or
    horizontally, not diagonally) will make them be eliminated from the screen.
    
    If the screen is filled with beans that don't get together in groups of four,
    it's game over. This is how to lose. Next section tells you how to win. But do
    not worry as there are infinite continues, and you'll probably need some even
    if you're playing exactly as I wrote in the solution.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      IV- Types of Puzzles                                                [00004]
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For puzzle mode, you win when you fill the pre-requisites of each stage, they
    can vary to:
    
    - Eliminate all <color> beans: you have to make the remaining bean of this
    <color> all be eliminated, and you won't receive extra of them. Just the other
    colors.
    
    - Eliminate N beans at a time: make N of the beans get together at once. N
    being a number, integer.
    
    - Eliminate N waves of beans: make a combo of N waves, it means make them get
    together in a way that the first move will trigger the next one, and so on, in
    a chain of moves.
    
    - Let 10 pairs drop in: this is only one of the lessons, a lot of refugees
    will be in the game and you have to survive 10 pairs.
    
    - Eliminate all beans: it means you have to get the beans together in a way
    that in the end you have an empty screen.
    
    - Eliminate refugee beans: these are the black or gray beans, used on
    attacking, they are pre-set beans for puzzle mode in many lessons, but you'll
    never receive more of them in puzzle mode.

      V- How do I read the FAQ?                                           [00005]

    Lesson: Your objective is written here, the game will tell you the same way.
    
    Screen: You can see the initial screen here as the game shows. Or if it's
    empty, I won't put anything. Beans are:
    
    R = Red
    G = green
    B = blue
    Y = yellow
    P = pink
    X = refugee, gray, black, air, whatever you call it.
    O = anything, not important, if it doesn't mess with the combinations.

    If you understood it, including the falling pair, then it's ok.
    
    Next: Some lessons will give you just one or two kinds, others will let you
    have whatever you don't need.
    
    Solution: This is the reason you searched for the FAQ, right? Or maybe you
    should be trying to solve them alone... too hard? So read it, I'll try to be as
    specific as I can.

    Lesson 1:
    Eliminate all red beans.

    --------
    
    Next:
    All kinds of beans can come on next, except red.
    
    Solution:
    Too easy, wait for a blue one and throw it in the middle. You can use 2 blue
    beans and use them on the sides, which will make you ... wait for 2 blue
    beans, still easy. Oh, some yellow, pink, green, will ocasionally show up, use
    that empty space on left to store them, I really don't expect the blue one to
    take so long to come...

    Lesson 2:
    Eliminate 10 beans at a time.
    
    Screen:

    |RRRBBB|
    --------
    
    Next:
    All kinds of beans can come on next.
    
    Solution:
    Many. Making 10 beans disappear at once isn't really difficult. But using the
    beans already set on screen is much faster. Throw one red bean in the left
    corner to make them four. Others will all go away with the flow, 16 is more
    than 10, so you win.

    Lesson 3:
    Eliminate all red beans.

    |  R   |
    --------
    
    Next:
    All kinds of beans can come on next, except red.
    
    Solution:
    Since you're getting no reds, and this is a very common stage (get used to it),
    you'll have to make the 4 of them... reunite. And since you get anything, just
    blow the intruder between them with four of another color.

    most when playing...

    Next:
    All kinds of beans can come on next.
    
    Solution:
    Well, for waves you can say 'combo'. So all you have to do is make a 3 wave
    combo. I show a possibility, but with 3 colors, you can do it in infinite ways.

    same all times...

    Lesson 5:

    --------
    
    Next:
    All kinds of beans can come on next.
    
    Solution:
    Play. That's the solution every one will realize to this one. It's the only
    'let in' lesson, so you won't have to do it again. Well, playing at this height
    is annoying, but if the right color come, you win by eliminating the extras. If
    you don't, restart.

    If you're lucky, red will come a lot, and you can do this quickly. Luckier
    would be getting pairs of the same color. It's just 10 pairs, anyway, you
    probably won't have time to remove much of them.

    Lesson 6:

    --------
    
    Next:
    Only red will come in.
    
    Solution:
    Well, this is the first tricky stage, but not hard, really. You just have to
    take advantage of the field, and the horizontal dropping. Do this in any order
    you want:
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |R|

    Eliminate 4 waves of beans.
    
    Screen:

    --------
    
    Next:
    All kinds of beans can come on next. First ones will be green-yellow, blue-
    yellow, green-yellow, green-green.
    
    Solution:
    Seems like combo stages have pre-set pairs, at least the first five. Well, you
    just have to use the field again, but if you fail, you can try the lesson 4
    trick, with one more pillar...
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |O|
    |      |   |O|

    Next:
    Only red and blue will come in.
    
    Solution:
    Easy, easy. The first pair will most probably be the only one in the solution.
    It goes:
    
    |      |   next

    As you don't receive green beans, you need to be careful not to let reds our
    blues get stuck below the green ones here. This is the only way to lose it. Oh,
    when the greens are out, just position reds and blues in a combo to make all of
    them be eliminated at once, just in case you get a one-colored piece in the
    beginning (or you can blend it in the combo).

    Lesson 9:
    Eliminate all blue beans.
    
    Screen:
    |      |   next
    |      |   |O|

    |XBXXXP|
    --------
    
    Next:
    You only get red, green and pink. No yellows.
    
    Solution:
    This is hell. Actually, the gate of hell, since you'll get even harder lessons
    later. It took me many time to figure this out. But since I found the solution,
    I'm writing it so you won't have to kill yourself. First, this is hard because
    you get random pieces, and have to play with them to make the four blue beans
    meet in the bottom, so you have to dig a lot. But just digging will let you
    stuck on something like this:
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |O|
    |      |   |O|
    |      |   ---
    |      |
    |      |
    |      |
    |      |
    |      |
    |      |
    |   B  |
    | BBXB |
    --------
    
    So you'll have to restart it if the gray one hides that way. Well, start with
    the pink, then go for the reds on the right. Then avoid the green triplet
    holding the highest blue there, .. reason? They're the solution. You have to
    eliminate all the pinks in the field first. Preferrably the reds before, too.
    These greens are the only way to avoid the hiding gray bean. Extra greens will
    come, just be sure to not let the ones already in the field be gone, until you

    You'll need a green-yellow to do this , but sometimes, the extra beans you put
    in the top make a new wave or two, ... luck, luck. It goes just the same with
    blues, if the come more often, just don't mess with the structure itself, or
    you can make it value less waves...

    Hell stage. Doesn't it look like a hole of fire and lava? The green parts are
    the -- whatever, see, the solution is not hard, actually, you'll probably laugh
    at yourself for not thinking about that earlier. First thing: kill the right
    side. Why? because it won't mess up with the left, .. ok, throw two pairs in
    the fourth column and you'll have:

    this quickly:

    Step-down Trick. Remember from lesson 2? If you don't get the yellows so early,
    you can try it with green too. Just see that the blues need that different one
    in the middle, if it's the same they'll mess up and some reds will still be on
    the field, making it impossible. It can take more than one try, but it won't
    hold you for long.

    Next:
    Red and yellow, only. Actually, just one yellow will show up in the second
    pair, then, just red.
    
    Solution:
    See the big picture. It took me some time to write it here, so have a little
    appreciation. For the game, you can try many things with the yellow and you'll
    see that most of times, one or two pinks on the right will still be there, with
    some reds. And reds you get more than you need later, but pink, not. Well, if
    you don't drop the beans exactly as this, you won't pass this one:
    
    |      |   next

    --------
    
    First, the two reds on the left, then the yellow with the red up. You'll get a
    little sequence, and then this hole will be the proof that you have only four
    pink beans remaining, that's only what you need to pass. Make a final red game
    like the screen above, and you'll just need to catch the red beans on the floor
    in the end.

    Looks like an evolution on the one before. Don't be tricked. There are 3 blues
    at the left pillar this time, and you first need to take out the new parts with
    a green. Second part will be easier. Put the blue there, and make sure it's
    just one. But if it's a pair of blues, put the other one above the red in the
    left... you just need to take out the reds, right?

    Well, this looks like a monster with seven heads. Eleven, actually. Seven-
    eleven. Whatever anyway, cause it's just a matter of position. Look:

    Yes, you can drop beans out of the screen, and they will go down. They can
    participate on waves, but not in direct 1-wave games. This combination will
    give you exactly 11 waves of beans, but you could try making it a bigger combo
    if you're planning to think of a different solution.

    Next:
    All kinds of beans can come on next.
    
    Solution:
    Now we're talking. 18 beans at a time is pretty tough, right? Not if you pay
    attention to this screen. Well, you can't predict what's needed now? So I'll
    draw for you:
    
    |      |   next

    When you do these improvements, you'll get the idea, so ladder those beans to
    take the reds out:

    Lesson 26:

    |      |
    |      |
    --------
    
    Next:
    Red and yellow, only.
    
    Solution:
    Another hell stage. Clear screen for a start. Any ideas? Well, 18 beans, you
    have the same mission than before, but now, you have only two colors of beans.
    How bad can it be, right... but for the solution now, first: forget about
    lesson 25. Boo-hoo. There is no way to line those beans like that with two
    colors, and second: start to remember the real lesson from the past, say...
    lesson 2. The step-down trick. Here's what you should do:
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |O|
    |      |   |O|
    |      |   ---

    |RRRY  |
    |YYYR  |
    |RRRYR |
    |YYYRR |
    --------
    
    Any extra yellow, throw it in the right corner. Or left if you follow the
    schedule on the other corner. And believe me, you'll get far more yellow beans
    than reds. So this will take a while. But if I could take 28 at once, 20 is
    incredibly possible =)

    |RRRGRB|
    |BBBGBB|
    --------
    
    Next:
    All but blue.
    
    Solution:
    This lesson made me lose hair, try so many times that I gave up the game,..
    twice. Actually, it's impossible. Give up. Run while you can. Ok, ok, let's
    talk about the solution. Happier? So. You have a bunch of red beans between a
    bunch of blue beans that has to be taken down all at once. Right? So you have
    to make a big pillar of ready waves and the reds on top so you can take all of
    them in one shot, right? Right? Wrong! 100% wrong. You don't have enough screen
    to do something like that. So you'll have to take one side before the other.
    And which one? Left. Wide side. Start by throwing green on the green and you'll
    take out the first refugee near them. Then use another color to take out the
    second. Getting a green-green pair can make both of them disappear at once:
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |O|
    |      |   |O|

    |XXB RR|
    |BBR BB|
    |XXB RR|
    |RRR RB|
    |BBB BB|
    --------
    
    Next step, take out the reds near the top. It will make the waves of all left
    side disappear and the extra beans ocasionally there become floor. And then,
    after taking out the final reds and seeing the last blues disappear from this
    side, you can concentrate on the right side, which should be way simplier now,
    with the.. Step-down trick! Any color will do. I used yellow.

    Lesson 28:
    Eliminate 5 waves of beans.

    Next:
    Only pairs of red.
    
    Solution:
    Now isn't that annoying. After the hardest stage, there isn't a much easier
    one. Actually, a mountain of engraved blues and pinks doesn't look so scary,
    until you try many different ways to find the solution and can't even get close
    to the truth. So, I'm here to save you. So you have infinite ammunition of
    red-red pairs and have to take out blues and pinks. No! Think it clearer. You
    don't have to take out all of them, you have to eliminate 5 waves of beans.
    Let's start with the left wall, shall we:
    
    |      |   next
    | R    |   |R|
    | XBXP |   |R|
    |RXXBX |   ---
    |RXBXP |

    | XBXP |
    | XXBX |
    | XBXP |
    |RXXPX |
    |RXBXP |
    |RXXBX |
    --------
    
    With this, you have half the wall, and you need it. Second attack, the new
    ladder. And take out the two first refugees on the right side too:
    
    | R    |   next
    | R    |   |R|
    |  BX  |   |R|
    |  XB  |   ---
    | RBXP |
    | RXPX |
    | RBXP |
    | XXBX |
    | XBXP |
    | XXPX |
    | XBXP |
    | XXBP |
    --------
    
    The trick on this stage is: blue and pink beans can only make 3 waves alone, so
    you'll have to make a new one at the beginning, and another at the end. Simple
    enough? Let me show you:
        R
    |   R  |   next
    |   R  |   |R|
    |   X  |   |R|
    | RRB  |   ---

    |  XBX |
    |  BXP |
    |  XPX |
    | RBXP |
    | RXBP |
    --------
    
    With this set, next two refugees will start the show, and then blues, pinks,
    blues, and the last reds, making the 3 little pinkies in the end just look at
    you petrified like a frustrated columns piece thrown into the wrong universe.

    Next:
    Only pairs of yellow, except for the first pair, blue-yellow.
    
    Solution:
    Don't cry. Ok, if you do the wrong move, you start the wrong chain, taking out
    anything with just two waves. Step-down trick is the wrong way to go now. Or
    maybe... I should remember you the right one so. Lesson 17. Hole of fire. And
    lava. Start by losing your blue, it's not needed.

    Ok, see how the yellows should take of the wall to you? Take it of with two
    combinations:

    |  YYBB|   |Y|

    | BBBYY|
    |BYYYBB|
    |YBBBYY|
    --------
    
    The other yellow that was going down on the left is gone. Ok, then, you can
    realize the simplicity of the hole of fire (and lava!) by taking the yellows on
    the middle:
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |Y|

    Drop it and see how simple and nice it is. The destruction of a yellow and blue
    world. Ok, that was random. On to the next and last lesson, go, go!

    --------
    
    Next:
    Red and yellow, only. Like in lesson 26, lots of yellow and some red.
    
    Solution:
    It's the last one! Aren't you happy? And it isn't so hard, since you have the
    right beans at the start, for a great combo, even greater than seven.
    Especially because after this stage you just have to see the ending and
    credits, and of course it's a different ending than scenario mode. Now first,
    grab these yellows and put a red on the top, like this:
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |O|
    | R    |   |O|
    | R R  |   ---

    | RRGR |
    | YBYYR|
    |RYBYPR|
    |RXRBGY|
    |RXYYGP|
    --------
    
    Next reds will take the blues together. It's all you need to win, as the next
    move is the winner:
    
    |      |   next
    |      |   |O|
    |      |   |O|
    |   R  |   ---

    | YBYYR|
    |RYBYPR|
    |RXRBGY|
    |RXYYGP|
    --------
    
    Dropping these yellows will set the combo and maybe some tears. Now, you just
    have to watch the ending, which I'm not telling you. =)
