* HintSystem: If you're stuck on a puzzle, you can pay a few Play Coins (built into the 3DS, you get these for walking in real life) for the game to temporary flash where Qbby and the boxes are supposed to be. If you've already paid for the hint, you can view it as many times as you want until you either pass the point or quit.
