Collapse It

Game Description: Kill each person on each level by placing your bombs strategically on each structure, then pressing the detonation button in the lower-right corner.

How to Play Collapse It:

  • Once the game fully loads, click the green 'Play' button.
  • On the next screen or two that you will see, click the green 'Play' button once more. This will take you to the 'Choose Level' screen.
  • You may play any level that is unlocked.
  • If you are playing Collapse It for the very first time, only Level 1 will be unlocked.
  • If you have not elected to hide the game tips, Collapse It will take you through Level 1 step-by-step. This will give you a good feel on how to play the game. (Hint: Always leave the game tips turned on.)
  • Your goal is to place your bombs strategically to kill each person on each level. (The number of people you must kill is also listed at the top of the screen where it says 'Kills Left').
  • After you place your bombs, click the 'Boom' button in the lower right corner, or press your space bar, to explode your bombs.
  • When you explode your bombs a clock will appear near the upper left corner.
  • To win a level you must kill every person before the clock can make one full rotation. (Sometimes it can take a while for the structures to break apart, if you have not placed your bombs at a good enough location).
  • If you are unable to kill all of the people with your bombs, you will see the 'Level Failed!' screen. To replay the level, and try again, click the 'Restart' button. (You may replay a level as many times as you need, until you succeed).
  • Each time you successfully complete a level, the next level will unlock.
  • There are 34 levels of play.
  • Win cups by using less bombs.
  • The fewer bombs you use, the more points you will make!
  • Your total score for all levels is shown at the top of the 'Choose Level' screen.
  • See how your total score compares to the top 20 total scores by clicking the green 'High Scores' button on the main menu.
  • You may replay any unlocked level, at anytime, to try to get a better level score. (If you happen to score lower than your previous best, Collapse It will still give you credit for your highest level score. So, your total score will never decrease!)
  • If you would like to submit your score, which can be fun, simply click the green 'Submit' button at the top of the 'Choose Level' screen. Enter your name (you are limited to 15 character spaces). Then, click 'submit' in the lower right corner.
  • Collapse It should automatically save all of your game progress, and all of your level scores.
  • To continue your saved game, just use the same computer and come back here to Richard's Game Reviews and pick up where you last left off.

Collapse It Game Options: All of the game options are accessed by clicking the yellow 'Options' button on the main menu. The game options are:
  • The music volume may be adjusted with the top slider button. (If you want to turn the music completely off, just make sure you slide the button all the way to the left.)
  • The sound volume may be adjusted with the second slider button.
  • The game tips may be hidden by placing a checkmark in the 'Hide Tips' box. (The default setting is to display the game tips. I suggest that you leave the setting to display the game tips. They really are helpful and not intrusive at all).
  • You may wipe out all of your game progress, and start an entirely new game by clicking the 'Reset Game' button and then clicking 'Yes'. However, be warned. Once you click the 'Yes' button, you cannot go back and change your mind.

Collapse It Playing Tips:
  • Collapse It is a game of trial and error. If you don't successfully complete a level, or if you do not get as high of a level score as you wish, pay close attention to see what works and what doesn't work. Then, play the level again and make the necessary adjustments.
  • Before you place your bombs, you may want to hover your mouse over the box at the lower left corner of the screen. When you do, a pop-up box will appear showing you what types of bombs you have available and how many of each. Collapse It will choose the order in which you use your bombs. However, this box allows you to change that order by simply clicking on the type of bomb you would like to use first. Obviously to get the maximum number of points, you would like to use only a single bomb to complete a level, if at all possible. So using this box allows you to use any of your available bombs as your first bomb, and can sometimes give you an advantage.
  • Here is a hint for Collapse It Levels 18, 24 and 32. You will need to explode the kegs of dynamite. (They look like orange barrels).
  • Here is a hint for Level 22. You will need to collapse the tall brick tower on the right, and get it to topple the lower structure with the remaining 6 people on the left.
  • If you get really stuck, you may want to take a look at the walkthough from Kongregate. This is the same exact walkthough you would see if you clicked the 'Walkthrough' button on the game itself; and for your convenience, I have it right here on this page.
