Author's Description: The Pickles is a game combining puzzles and a little action. The Pickles of Pickle Island are determined to set a stop to Mecha, an ingenious villian who has turned against them. That's where you come in. King Pickleton has sent to you for help. By using the Pickles' skills, you must overcome Mecha's puzzles.

The basic concept is simple. The Pickles can all push the blocks that make up the level a certain number of spaces. But sometimes it takes a bit more. The Pickles can also pick up tools and change professions. Each of the three special professions handles blocks and obstacles differently.

There's also Mecha's minions to deal with! The Pickles must dodge them, and they always seem to be in the way!
Are you up to the challenge? Can this rag-tag team overcome this villain? Probably not, but it's worth a try!
