Game information

Ice Breaker: The Red Clan and Ice Breaker: The Gathering

When the player clicks on the rock with their mouse, and drags off the rock, their cursor will turn into a hand. What seems like electricity can be seen attached to the hand coming to the rock. If the mouse is let go while he hand is on another rock, the hand will begin to hold on to that rock. The energy behind the hand can be passed through by any rock, which prevents the field from being a platform. The player can bring as many hands out of the the rock as they need.

Hands can even hold on to blocks that are in water. Hands are used in Ice Breaker: The Gathering for puzzle solving, most of the puzzles which involve having to catch falling materials. The more hands on a material, the more smoothly it moves. To deactivate a hand, the player has to slice across the electric field. Attaching hands onto objects does not count as a cut.

Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage

In Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, they have the same purpose. They are only found in the second half of the Kraken pack. Attaching one hand on an object is considered a cut.
