      The spaceship is floating in mid air sustained at a certain height by a strong rotor that pushesair to the ground. The movements of the spaceship are affected by drift and inertia. If you are running fast and you change direction, the spaceship will continue its way in the originary direction.
      If going fast, a sudden change of direction will result in a drift of the spaceship.
      If you fall, the spaceship compensate a boost will smooth or stop the fall. In the same way, on a lift, the spaceship is pushed against the bottom of the lift on the way up, and, once stopped, the rotor will push the spaceship which will regain its height.
      This command changesthe type of view. You have 3 different 3rd person views of the spaceship and one in first person. In the first person view you can also see the cockpit.
      When you release an item, this will fall from above your current position.
      Treasures and rubies cannot be activated. Other items, like shields and speeds, can.
      Every item is classified from 1 to 3 and its power last lasts a time progressively greater proportional to its power level.
      The active portals can be broken and repaired. The amount of damage is reported in the cockpit and is a value between 1 and 100.
      The repair command is also used for refilling the spaceship with fuel and air.
      You have three different typesof view of the map. The standard vision is the small map in the upper right corner and below,the chat with a long list of messages. You can pass to a bigger map and a short list of messages or you can remove the map entirely.
      With the INFO key you can :

      • Terminate: exit from the challenge into the game The Best of Us – Better Together®.
      • Delete Crumbles: remove all previous paths.
      • Submit: select a category and insert a message for us.

      It shows the paths made. It is useful in the hardest labyrinths to find the way back out.
      You can delete the past crumbs with the command INFO.
      This command gives you the opportunity to see around freely using the mouse of the Game Controller.
      This command has two features:

      • Single click: the spaceship receives an upward thrust.
      • Pressed for 3 seconds: jump to your portal. When you jump to the portal you’ll leave all the objects in your depot in the place where you have been.
        You can jump only if you have enough fuel and air (at least 30% of each) which will be consumed.






      The Best of Us – Better Together® is more complex than you expect at the beginning.
      You can lose your treasures and rubies when an enemy bumps into you. The same happens to the enemy. Both if they collide will lose one item in their depot.
      You can use shields to avoid colliding with others, but shields last a limited time.
      You can group together in order to protect your bearer of the treasure to the jumportal.
      Allportalscan be damaged. Without a portal, the radar, the chat and gas and air refill are disabled.
      You can also steal the fuel tanks from a portal in order to disable the portal for a longer time. Every portal can be broken but also used to move the treasures and rubies from the players depot to the team’s.





      There are 36 terrains, 2 x 2 square km each.
      The terrains have different surfaces, 9 terrain for each: desert, ice, oil and forest, and types: Natural, City & Ancient Ruins, Base & Industry Complex and Spaceship.





      The are 9 levels of difficulty: 1 (very easy) to 9 (very difficult).
      The items on the playground are randomly scattered based on the difficulty of the level.
      The items in the easiest levels are scattered outside the labyrinth or in the main entrance of the labyrinth.
      The items in the hardest levels are hidden inside the labyrinth.
      In the hardest levels the portals can be broken and the consumption of fuel and air is higher.





      Fuel Tank








      Each portal has a generator that is fundamental for the other parts. If the generator is broken, you can not activate the others parts.

      Allows the spaceship to enter the challenge. If a spaceship passes through it with treasures or rubies those items are transferred from the player’s depot to the team’s depot.
      This engine gives electricity to all the system. When broken, all the portal is stopped. The Generator has three fuel tanks that can be taken and restored. The Generator cannot start without its fuel tanks.
      Air pump
      This item is used to generate air for the engine and the spaceship. If damaged the spaceship cannot refill with air.
      The antenna allows the transmission of the information needed for the radar of the spaceship. If damaged the spaceship radar and the chat do not work.






      On the terrain, you can find objects that help you to see all the items, portals and enemies on the playground.
      On each terrain you can also find a column of knowledge that gives you the vision for few seconds each time you touch it.





      The chat is available only to the team members.
      The chat is automatically cleaned by the most common bad words.

      The Best of Us – Better Together® is available in countries all over the world, and it’s important that people of all backgrounds feel safe and comfortable on our platform. To help ensure this, we must respect local laws and remove content or behaviours that advocate or promote illegal activities.
      To keep The Best of Us – Better Together® a place where everyone can have fun, we can’t allow behaviour or content designed to exploit, harm, or threaten anyone – children, adults, or otherwise.
      When threatening, abusive, or insulting language is used against another member of our community, or the community at large, it undermines every player’s ability to enjoy themselves.
      Harassment and hate take many forms, but none have a home here. To make The Best of Us – Better Together® is a place where everyone can hang out, and to prevent people from feeling uncomfortable or unwelcome, we all need to be stewards. This means more than just not harassing other players—it means embracing them. It means saving those unsavory jokes for people you know will enjoy them. It means taking particular care of others while you play, keeping in mind how they might interpret your content.
      Know the difference between trash talk and harassment
      Gaming can be competitive and interactions with other players can get heated. A little trash talk is an expected part of competitive multiplayer action, and that’s not a bad thing. But hate has no place here, and what’s not okay is when that trash talk turns into harassment.
      Trash talk includes any lighthearted banter or bragging that focuses on the game at hand and encourages healthy competition. Harassment includes any negative behaviour that’s personalized, disruptive, or likely to make someone feel unwelcome or unsafe. To qualify as harassment, the behaviour doesn’t have to be drawn-out or persistent. Even a single abusive message could harm someone’s experience. Know when to draw the line, when to back off. Respect the other player.
      People from all over the world play The Best of Us – Better Together®, and we understand that people from different backgrounds have diverse perspectives. But because The Best of Us – Better Together® must be friendly and accessible to everyone, this isn’t the appropriate place for sexual content. Keep your posts and messages suitable for all audiences to help keep this a welcoming place for all.
      Fraud is any attempt to use deceit or misrepresentation for personal or financial gain. When players commit fraud against The Best of Us – Better Together®, it circumvents the processes that keep things fair for everyone, and ends up making games, add-ons, and subscriptions more expensive for everyone. This also applies to trying to make money through The Best of Us – Better Together® in unapproved ways, since doing so bypasses safeguards that exist to help keep everyone safe and financially secure.
      Since competition is best when it’s fair, a level playing field is one of the most important requirements for gaming. When people cheat, use exploits, or otherwise tamper with hardware or software to gain a competitive advantage, it ruins the experience for everyone. Because of this, cheating, tampering, and the use of exploits is never acceptable in The Best of Us – Better Together®.
      Pirating software is not a victimless crime—it robs game providers of revenue that funds games and add-ons that people want to play. Accessing or using content in inappropriate ways can contribute to fraud and spoil great experiences for other players, sapping the magic of The Best of Us – Better Together®. By using games and game content only in the ways intended, you help maintain a vibrant community for content creators and fellow players alike.
      Essentially, don’t use things that don’t belong to you and don’t do things you don’t have the permission to do. People work hard to make screen shots, game clips, and other content that’s enjoyed by millions of people. It’s important to let content creators unveil and share what they create on their terms. If you’re not sure if it’s okay to use something, it’s better to be safe and assume that using someone’s content is not okay.
      Ingenuity Games® runs on trust, and it’s critical that we protect the privacy of our customers. We take this responsibility seriously, and we won’t tolerate behaviour or content that puts the privacy or security of another player at risk.
      Our priority is the safety of everyone in The Best of Us – Better Together®. Content and behaviour that put players at risk or make them feel unwelcome have no place here. So, sometimes we need to step in. We’re not out to punish, but rather to protect everyone’s experience.
      Every suspension or other corrective action aims only to show what was wrong and what can be learned from a situation. When suspensions end, we welcome players back so they can contribute to The Best of Us – Better Together® in positive ways. We know people make mistakes, and we believe lapses in judgment can be significant opportunities for growth.

      Inappropriate conduct
      If you violate The Best of Us – Better Together® standards, you may find restrictions placed on your profile and/or device. When we suspend The Best of Us – Better Together® profile you’ll not be able to play online.
      Since The Best of Us – Better Together® content must be appropriate for all audiences, sometimes we remove content to protect our customers. Depending on the type of content violation, this can result in a suspension or the profile that created or shared the content.
      We may permanently suspend a profile or device if we can no longer trust it due to a severe violation, or if our attempts to correct repeated negative behaviours are unsuccessful. Under permanent suspension, the owner of the suspended profile forfeits all licenses for games and other content.
      No reimbursements will be granted for bad behaviours, violations, temporary or permanent suspensions.
      Depending on the type of violation, if we find behaviour that is potentially against the law, we’ll take action in reporting it to the police in your country.
      In this case your data will be transferred to the local authority with all the details you gave us.
