Chrome recommended, but tested on Firefox as well.

In principle it works on mobile, but this is not recommended, because you'll need to be able to click precisely.

Your job is to follow the instructions that are written using the 1000 most common English words. This idea was taken from xkcd's Up Goer Five, and Thing Explainer by Randall Munroe.

Totally stuck at level 9. Maybe that's the point? Totally worth it though. Well done!

What a curious and cool game!
