*** Must Read ***
1. The Trespassers Guide (second option in title menu) contains some hints.
2. You can start the game from every room and therefore practice every level by pressing left/right keys at first option in title menu. This game involves broom riding which you may want to practice by playing room 6 or room 3. Kind of a broom flying school would have been nice but there is none.
3. You can admit defeat in a level run by pressing key P. You can return to the title menu by pressing key P again.
This game, as should be obvious, is handmade and of rather small scale. I would suggest to first practice each level, then go for a highscore.
The ultimate goal is to solve all levels in succession. You must start in level 1 for this. If you succeed, there is a small (happy)ending telling you how the events further develop.
