Unused Text

Besides the menus and the "Entering the tomb..." splash screens, the demo doesn't use much text.

back to square one.
get with it!
concentrate.
try again!
you ran out of time. if you dont jump quickly you will forced off.
don't stop to think. you must make decisions quickly.
watch the timer bar and listen for the warning sounds.
jumped the wrong way, now there's a surprise.
use your head!
reverse your direction on these tiles!
*** GAME OVER ***ha ha ha ........only kidding !!!!  
vertical flip tiles will keep you busy for a while!
whoops!
you can do better than that!
come on, the flip tiles aren't that difficult.
flip tiles are easy. what's up with you?
have you flipped out?
there's plenty more flip tiles ahead so you'll have to get with it.
you must be dizzy. think in reverse.
jump blocks are different aren't they?
is that the best you can do?
make sure there is somewhere to land!
that was a close call!
remember guys, these things turn round!
bet that put you into a spin...
not so easy, dude.
round and round....where will you land?
2 bounce tiles have to be bounced on twice!
this is nothing compared to what awaits you...
don't give up!
you will have to try a lot harder if you are to succeed!
bummer dude!
practice makes perfect.
you must bounce on 3 bounce tiles 3 times.
leave spare tiles to help get rid of 3 bounce tiles.
you must clear all the tiles to advance to the next room.
don't forget to leave a path back to the start.
you need to try much harder.
determination is the key to success!!!!!!
congratulations, you successfully found passage through the room.
well done !!!prepare to enter a new room.
not bad, but there's still a long way to go.
congratulations. keep up the hard work.
