### Instructions

The opening screen gives you a glimpse of the enchanted forest where the pixies are hiding.  When the game starts, click on a pixie and drop it in the jar.  Approach the pixies carefully or they will fly away.  Catch as many as you can before dawn breaks.

To begin, click on "CLICK TO PLAY."

Welcome to the enchanted forest.  Look carefully for the pixies to appear.  To toggle the sound on and off, click on the musical note in the top left side of the screen.  The "Q" in the upper left corner allows you to reduce the quality of the animation so it works better on older computers.  At the bottom of the screen is the pixie jar.
Soon, pixies will start appearing.  Use the mouse to guide your hands to a pixie.  When you are near it, click the mouse to capture it.  The glowing pixies are worth bonus points.
When you catch a pixie, it will glow in your hands.  Use the mouse to bring it down to the jar.  The lid will open quickly and allow you to contain it.
Earn bonus points by catching pixies that reveal a hidden multiplication problem.  You can earn up to 4 bonus pixies by answering the problem quickly.  The longer it takes to answer the problem, the less bonus points you earn.
At dawn, the pixies will hide and you will see how many pixies you were able to catch.

Click on "CLICK TO PLAY AGAIN" to release the pixies and start a new game.
