I want to change the way this game looks. Can I?
Currently you can only change the player's colors, but not the game theme. To change the player's colors use the Game Configuration dialog.
How do I get started in this game?
The moves of KJumpingCube can be hard to follow at first. One way to learn is to watch games where the computer plays against itself. Use the Game Configuration dialog to set it up. Check both Playing now boxes, choose a board size in the range 3x3 to 5x5, set the animation to Scatter dots and the move-time to Long, then click . Now click the big green button in the toolbar to start the game.
That was too fast for me, how can I slow it down?
Use the Game Configuration dialog again. Down at the bottom are two check boxes. Check one to pause the game between moves. Check the other to pause between steps of cascade moves that spread out over the board, especially near the end of the game. Back in the game, you can now use the big toolbar button (whenever it goes green), to trigger off each move or proceed step by step within a move, at whatever pace you choose.
What does the big button in the toolbar do?
This button is used to stop something the computer is doing (red color), start or continue a computer action when you are ready (green color) or prompt you to do something, such as make a move (blue color, button disabled). For a full description see The Stop/Start Button.
Can I use the keyboard to play the game?
No. KJumpingCube cannot be played using the keyboard.
Where are the high scores?
KJumpingCube does not have such a feature.
