Plumeboom has gotten to AbooLand. All day, the Aboo wormlings dig up Magic
Crystals. Recently, Crowbeak the wizard and a mad scientist named Cornix have
tried to steal crystals. Seems they want to create a Weapon of Darkness. Help
the Aboo guard their crystals.
_A-B-O-O: Plumeboom’s Friends_ is a match three puzzle game. Your mouse
cursor will have a crystal next to it. Click another crystal on the board to
swap them. You are trying to create a straight row of three of the same. When
you do, those crystals and any of the same that they touch will disappear.
Also, the gold area behind the crystals will be destroyed. Keep matching until
all gold areas are gone then you will move to the next level. Red areas must
be matched twice to destroy them. If the crystal you pick up cannot be used to
make a three-way match, it will automatically switch to a random crystal that
can be used to make a match.
As you progress through the levels, you will earn bonuses. These are activated
when the crystal with the bonus is used to make a match. They do different
things, like making the crystals next to them explode, making all the crystals
around them explode, clearing the entire row of crystals, etc. You can enter a
screen to set which ones, up to three, will appear. After you clear all the
levels of a stage, you enter the next stage. After about every other stage,
you enter a bonus level. You will see a board with four or more crystals.
These will then flip over and you must click where they were. If you succeed,
you move to the next stage.
