The principles are easy, albeit simpler to study by way of enjoying. Working with a board of tiles representing totally different Doctors, gamers should use their pc arrow keys (or swipe on their telephones) to maneuver the tiles up, down, left or proper, with the intention of smashing collectively two of the identical Doctor tiles to “regenerate” them into the subsequent incarnation (see the gif under).
Can YOU be a part of the Doctors to get to the Thirteenth? ????

In different phrases, two Patrick Troughton tiles make a Jon Pertwee, two Pertwees make Tom Baker and so forth, all the method as much as the present Doctor (assuming you get that far – we’ve barely made it previous John Damage).

However there’s a catch – with each transfer you make a new William Hartnell tile seems, that means the board will quickly refill and finish the game in the event you can’t hold regenerating the Doctors.

So has anybody acquired to the finish of the game? And what’s their secret?
One advisable trick – to only smash the up and proper arrows repeatedly, then shift to the left, then begin once more – acquired us so far as Paul McGann earlier than the Hartnells descended, and at time of writing we couldn’t spot anybody on-line who’d really made all of it the option to the finish.
