    Introduction
    ******************
    As many of you should know Flipull isn't a very long
    game, but the kost challenging parts about it is the
    difficulty. Unlike other games you don't shoot people,
    play mini-games, or race, all you get to do is clear blocks.
    Sounds Borin? Well it's kinda is because that's alll your
    doing in the game. I bet you're probally thinking but if it
    isn't that long, then why did I bother writing a FAQ about it.
    Simply to explain the game better and give more strategy for
    some of you that might need help on it. The only sad thing about
    the game is that each level is changed with different kinds of
    blocks so I can't write a walkthrough on it >_<
    
    In this FAQ you'll learn all of the basic informations likes:
    the blocks, controls, and then I'll get to the good stuff like
    strategy to beat a certain level, ect. Thanks for checking out
    one of my FAQs and hope it helps :)

    gameplay.
    
    
    ******************
    How To Play
    ******************
    The Point of the game is to clear as much blocks as you
    can. Inorder to move on to the next round you need to
    reach a certain ammount of points. Here's some basic
    information on how to play:
    
    Step 1 : In every round you start out with the S Block.
    You can use that block to clear any different block in
    the pile as you want.
    
    Step 2 : As you clear a block in the pile the blocks
    behind it will be your next block. To put it simply
    you use a blck you get the block behind it.
    
    Step 3 : Now that you got a new block you have to use
    the symbol on it to match the other blocks with the same
    symbols. Don't try to get the blocks in the middle, you
    can only get blocks that are outside.
    
    Stuck : At some point of the game you will shoot a block
    and get a block return with no other block with the same
    symbol. If you can't match any other block with the same
    symbol, you have to use a life. You got 3 lives and every
    life you use they'll give you a S Block to start over.
    
    Time Limit : There is a time limit in every level. If you
    don't clear the round before the time limit is out you
    lose and will be force to start over! So hurry, hurry,
    hurry!!!
    
    Clearing Rounds : Inorder for you to clear a round you
    have to reach a minimum ammount points and have to get
    below the time limit. As you move on to the next round.
    Each round as you replay it will have different blocks
    each time so don't expect use the same strategy.
