Florg is hungry! Luckily, his favourite food is always on the menu - Petpets. Help feed Florg by keeping the Petpets on the table so he can slurp them up - burp!

How to Play
Using the robotic hand provided, keep the scurrying Petpets from running off of the table. When a Petpet bumps into your hand, it will run in the opposite direction and pick up speed. At random intervals, Florg will flick his tongue out and lick up any Petpets it comes into contact with. New Petpets are added to the table as Florg devours them. If five Petpets manage to escape, the game is over.
You are given two options for controlling the robotic hand - keyboard or mouse. For the keyboard controls, hold the left and right arrow keys to move the hand. For the mouse controls, move the mouse in the direction you want the hand to move in. If your mouse cursor leaves the game screen, the hand will continue to move even if you aren't moving the mouse. For this reason, it is advisable to stick with the keyboard controls, which are default. The controls can be changed by choosing Options at the main menu.
What's For Dinner?
"Florg love Petpets! Maybe your pet would like one too!"
Scoring and Strategy
Each time Florg devours a Petpet, you earn 10 points. You also earn 1 point each time a Petpet is blocked by your hand. When the game begins, keeping the Petpets from escaping is fairly easy, but over time the table will become crowded and you will have to choose which Petpets to save. Which Petpet(s) and how many Florg will choose to devour every 10 seconds is completely up to chance, so getting a score high enough for a trophy or avatar is largely based on luck. If two Petpets are running in opposite directions and only one can be saved, be quick, decisive, and choose the one you don't think Florg will eat. If you hesitate, you may not make it to the Petpet in time and lose both! An ideal scenario would be to have two or three Petpets running near each other in the same direction, as this makes it easier to juggle between saving them.
- Florg chooses which Petpets to eat at random, he will not necessarily eat the ones that have been on the table the longest.
- If you have to choose between two Petpets to save, save the one that is the easiest to get to.
- If there are more than two Petpets on the table and you have to make a choice, try to save the two that are running closest to each other. They will be the easiest to save later when more Petpets are added to the table.
- Getting a high enough score for the avatar depends mostly on luck. If you play the game enough, eventually it will be yours!
Mmm, tastes like Bludberries!
