Stage Mode

Stage Mode is a game mode where players travel through worlds completing puzzle stages along the way.

Overview[ ]

Each stage has an objective which is displayed on the ready screen and before the stage starts. The most common one would be to eliminate all the viruses, but some stages (usually on multiples of 5) contain coins, and the objective is to collect them all, and even fewer stages combine the virus and coin objectives. Clearing a stage for the first time rewards Heart.png Heart x1.

Most stages are capsule-limited, which means the player has only a limited number of capsules available to complete each stage. Challenge stages are time-limited. Running out of capsules or time without completing the stage's objective results in stage failure. The player will have the option to exchange Diamond.png Diamonds x10 for Continue Rainbow Capsule.png Rainbow Capsule x1 + Continue Capsule.png Capsule x4 for capsule-limited stages, or Continue Timer.png Seconds +15 for time-limited stages. Up to two continues can be purchased per stage attempt. The v1.4.0 update added an option for the player to spend Diamond.png Diamonds x15 instead for Continue Rainbow Capsule.png Rainbow Capsule x5.

Some stages (typically the last stage in each area) scroll, indicated by triangles at the top of the game board. This means additional rows can get added from the top after every few capsules, pushing everything else downward. Of course, if any object gets pushed below the bottom line, the player loses.

Clear Stars[ ]

Each stage awards up to 3 Star.png clear stars depending on the final score upon clear. Each star awards the player Coin.png Coin x50 the first time they achieve that star on a stage. For example, clearing a stage for the first time with 2 stars awards 100 Coins, clearing it again with 2 stars awards 0, but clearing it again with 3 stars awards 50 for the third star that hadn't been achieved before.

Obtaining all the Clear Stars in a World rewards the player with a Platinum Medal (see World Medals section below).

Worlds[ ]

There are 22 worlds, and currently up to the first area of world 22 are released. Each world has a different theme, and consists of 2 areas each consisting of 20 capsule-limited stages each. Each world's second area additionally has 3 time-limited stages known as Challenge Stages and 1 Special Stage.

Clearing the second area of a world rewards Staff Ticket.png Staff Ticket x1, while clearing the first area of a world rewards a Heart 30 Minutes.png Heart (30 minutes of infinite play), and Coin.png Coin x500 for worlds 1-5 or an Assistant for worlds 6-10:

Challenge Stages[ ]

These stages are unlocked after clearing 5 stages in the second area of a world. They are time-limited, which means the player will have an unlimited number of capsules, but a limited amount of time to clear the stage. Completing each of the three Challenge Stage in each world awards the player a Challenge Box.png Challenge Box. The first and second box each contain Coin.png Coin x500, while the third box contains Coin.png Coin x1000 + Staff Ticket.png Staff Ticket x1.

Special Stages[ ]

Achieving 3 Stars on all 43 stages in a world will unlock a hidden Special Stage. These stages are capsule-limited and do not have requirements for clear stars, but will award 3 stars on clear. Completing this stage rewards a Special Box.png Special Box, which contains a Platinum World Medal for that special stage's world, Coin.png Coin x1000, and a Doctor:
