Join Addy as she tries to help her mum in the Buttons Up game! Can you collect all the different colored buttons from the table before the time runs out?
Test out your handiness and patience with the Buttons Up game! Addy, a beloved American Girl representing the Civil War era, works at Mrs. Ford's Dress Shop with her mum. Unfortunately, the buttons have been spilled all over the floor! Can you help Affy pick them up before Mrs. Ford returns?
The game consists of 10 levels, each one of them a little more difficult than the previous. You'll have to gather up to 100 buttons! Can you do it before the clock runs out? There's only one way to find out!
The gameplay is very straightforward. All you have to do is hover your mouse over a button to begin. Next, you can simply slide your cursor over other same-colored buttons to collect them. You don't even need to click!
Are you done collecting? Whenever you think you're ready, you can put the buttons in the jar by clicking anywhere on the screen, then holding and dragging. It's easy as pie!
There are four shades of items on the screen: red, yellow, blue, and green. Pick a type and start collecting! Make sure you don't touch any of the other buttons by mistake! The point of the game is to test your dexterity.
Can you avoid all the wrong colors carefully, swerving between the piles of buttons? If not, the group you have collected so far will scatter all around the screen. Yikes! It will cause you to lose precious seconds from the timer at the top of the screen.
The key to winning in this game is collecting as many buttons at a time as possible. You'll get a 1000 point bonus if you manage to get all buttons of a color at once. Impressive! Besides, putting the buttons in the jar will make you waste precious seconds. Therefore, the more you gather at a time, the better your chances of meeting the time limit!
Even though this game might seem easy at first, you'll soon find that it requires a lot of agility and patience. You might have to practice for hours to reach the final level!
However, it's so fun to hang out with Addy and learn more about her life and American history!
