Welcome to the car park, where the goal of the game is to drive to the 5th floor and park your car. Its handling is detailed in the “Controls” section of this same page.

Watch out for the ghost car that is patrolling the city. We can hide from it with the exhaust gases while you drive. While we circulate we will go through secret switches that will open the door of the garages on the floor. These will reveal the contents of the garage spaces. We must enter each square and collect the objects that they show us.

An up arrow “↑” is the one that takes us to the next floor, but as long as we have obtained the key first, but before collecting the key we will have to collect all the objects that appear inside the garages.

The other parking spaces look the same, but their content varies. Some will give you extra lives, some will give you limited shield against the ghost car, some will give you more points. Remember that we must collect all the objects found in the garages before collecting the key.
