Blue Print Gameplay

Beginning with 5 lives, you circumnavigate a neighborhood, which is arranged like a maze, of 10 houses which you enter by placing your character on an opening by a house. When you hear a victory sound after entering a house it signifies that you’ve found a piece of the machine and you will gain 1000 points. Once you’ve gathered all the pieces needed, you must make your way back through the maze of a neighborhood, and construct the machine on the blueprint with the parts in the correct position.

Out of the 10 houses, only 8 contain machine parts and the remaining contain bombs at random, so you must choose the ones you visit carefully. Memory is also a key element in this game as you have to remember which houses you’ve previously visited, else to be greeted with a bomb on re-entry. Bombs can be diffused by dropping them at the bomb pit, though you will lose valuable time. You also have a speed meter which is replenished by finding parts, which will be used to avoid enemies like Sneaky Pete and Fuzzy Wuzzy who will impede your progress throughout the levels. As you search for the parts for the machine, Ollie will constantly be catching up to your girlfriend, so you are timed throughout it. The closer Ollie is to reaching his objective is represented by a distress sound by Daisy.

After having found all the parts and constructing the machine, you will use the joystick to aim it and fire basketballs at Ollie.
