Game Instructions

In Lost in Migration, the flock stays in one spot and your goal is to determine the direction that the middle bird is facing (which may or may not be in the same direction as the other birds.) Press the corresponding arrow keys to submit an answer. 

For the example below, you want to press the up arrow key since the middle bird is facing up.

Scoring & Levels

Each correct answer is worth 50 points times the current multiplier bonus. Keeping up a high multiplier bonus is the best way achieve high scores.

Your multiplier is shown to the right of the score box.

The key to increasing your multiplier is consistency; each correct answer adds one dot to the multiplier meter. After four correct answers in a row, the current multiplier increases by 1 (up to a maximum of 10) and resets the meter. At the end of the game, you're given additional bonus points which are awarded based on your current multiplier.

While you don’t lose points for incorrect answers, they decrease the meter by one dot (unless it's already empty, in which case the multiplier bonus reduces by 1.)
