The Game

Mrs Mopp has a very untidy family who leave their cups, shirts and other belongings all over the kitchen for Mrs Mopp to clear up. In addition to this, the kitchen also gets dirty, and must be cleaned as well as tidied. Being a tidy-minded person, Mrs Mopp has separate containers for clearing each set of items which are stored on their own shelves. The containers, however, can hold only ten objects before being emptied at the appropriate place and when full, Mrs Mopp flashes and must be relieved of her burden.

Like any housewife, Mrs Mopp gets tired and needs refreshment, but be careful not to let her over-indulge herself!!! Unlike most housewives, however, Mrs Mopp does have a limited number of magic spells which, if used carefully will assist her in her task.

Picking Up And Depositing Objects

Before any clearing up can be carried out, Mrs Mopp must first be carrying the right container. This can be acquired by moving Mrs Mopp alongside the required object then, provided that no other container is already being carried, that container wilt be absorbed into her ample figure, changing her colour accordingly. Only then can items by cleared by moving over them. Each container must be replaced before another can be picked up. Common sense will dictate which container picks up which objects and their final destination. (Dust is not normally picked up and put into a laundry basket then emptied into the sink!)

Scoring

5 points are awarded for each object cleared. An additional 100 points are given for each container successfully emptied. A bonus of 1000 points is scored at the end of each level beyond the first provided that at least one Magic Spell remains. Each level achieved brings more spells. At the end of play you will be given the opportunity to enter your name (maximum 8 characters) if your score exceeds that of the former champion.
