This level shows the player how to move Magneboy around in the level, and introduces blue tiles, of which Magneboy will be pulled towards if he uses his magnetic powers. The player should travel to the help tile, then use the magnetic powers to pull Magenboy towards the blue tile, traveling towards the finish.
Level 2 introduces obstacles, which block Magneboy's magnetic powers and prevent him from moving past them. The player must follow the blue tiles and travel the long way in order to complete the level.
Level 5 introduces purple tiles, which Magneboy can pull towards him if he uses his magnetic powers. This level also warns the player that they may get trapped if the tiles are pulled in the wrong order. The player can complete this level by pulling the purple tiles closest to each block.
Magneboy is now positioned amongst a broken green-tile path, with only two purple tiles and three blue tiles on each broken chunk of the puzzle. The player should have Magneboy go to each of the blue tiles, taking the purple tile with him. At the end of the level, the purple tiles should be place directly over the gaps, so Magneboy can close the gaps using them and complete the level.
Magneboy should go to where a key block is and pull it to the wall. Now go down and below the key block. Pull it to the bottom. Now go pull the purple block down so that it will be able to pull the key block across.
Walk onto the purple block and pull the key block. Now leave the key block alone and pull the purple block up and to the left side. Go onto the finish block and pull the key block. Magneboy will get sucked into a pipe and the level will be complete.
Players are scored by the number of moves they take to complete the level, which is counted at the bottom left hand corner of the screen. The number of moves include the number of steps Magneboy takes when traveling from tile to tile as well as the number of times Magneboy uses his magnetic powers. More points are scored when less moves are taken.
