Author's comments and explanations:
Palamedes II: Star Twinkles is a sequel to the first with new twists.

You grab dice that's equal to or one away from the number shown on the display die. The number you pick that meet either criteria will be the next shown.

There are two game modes. Mode 1 is where you clear dice and make combination. You can play by yourself to go for a high score. You can also challenge a friend or play against the computer.

hand description lines cleared
Dust Any 4 numbers not in sequence 1 line
Seven Times Combination totaling 7 +1 line
Double Two pairs of numbers 2 lines
Three Straight 3 consecutive numbers in a row 2 lines
Three Flush 3 of the same number 2 lines
Four Straight 4 consecutive numbers in a row 3 lines
Four Flush 4 of the same number 3 lines
Royal Royal Four Straight consists of 2-3-4-5 4 lines

Mode 1 you can cycle through dice by pressing B and speed up lines by pressing up.

Mode 2 is played differently as you remove dice until you reach the bottom. It's always played 1-on-1 and if both players have no moves, the display die changes to a different number.

This is a 12 second improvement over my previous submission.

I luck manipulate the RNG so that you get the best combinations quicker and have the CPU raise their stack to 3 lines high.

Improved title screen skip and better luck manipulation.

I go for 2-3-4-5 straight for 4 lines then 4-3-2 straight, 5-4-3 straight, 6-5-4 straight, or three of a kind for 2 lines more.

Having the stack almost to the top make the dice go shorter distances.

As usual, Quest Mode 1, 3 set, Hard.
