With manual configuration appears a playing field with the maximum number of smilies (see left picture).
By tapping a smilie this smilie and if applicable the smilie(s) above will be removed.

This creates an output similar to the random configuration (see right picture).

It's the players turn, when its name is displayed. By tapping a smilie this smilie and if applicable the smilie(s) above will be removed.

After that its the turn of the iPhone, iPod, iPad or second player. The name will be displayed.

The game ends when one player has taken the last smilie(s).

With the Back button can be taken back the last turn of both players. The result is however not stored in the highscore.
If the player wins with a new highscore, this notice appears.

Here the results are displayed for each game partner.
Smiling Smilie - player has won this score.
Sad Smilie - player loses with this score.

For the highscore count all smilies on the playing field when the game starts.

Two columns with identical number of smilies do not count, because in this case normally the player who begins loses. Otherwise, it would be easy to create simply to be won configurations. Example of counting see table below.
The number of smilies are counted under the condition that there is no other column with the same number of smilies.

Col 1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4 Col 5 Highscore

In row 2 there are 2 columns each with 3 smilies. This does not count for the highscore.
In row 3 there are 3 columns each with 5 smilies. Of these, only one column count for the highscore.
