The dungeon, huh? They think this is going to keep me out of their hair? Ha. I don't think so. See those windows up there? Looks like one of them is broken. These boxes are very convenient. I think if we stack these in the right order, we'll be out of here before you can say "Where's Jo?"

  • Click on a box to pick it up.
  • Click again to drop the box.
  • When you stack all boxes in order, from largest on the bottom to smallest on the top, we can get out of this place.
