The opening screen gives you a glimpse of the enchanted forest where the pixies are hiding. 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 on 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 golden 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 catch 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 fewer bonus points you earn.
At dawn, the pixies will hide and you will see how many you were able to catch. Click on "Click To Play Again" to release the pixies and start a new game!
