Frequently Asked Questions
Sometimes a game doesn’t fit into my screen. How can I see the entire game without scrolling?
You can use your browser's zoom function to change the size of the game window. To do this, hold the CTRL key (or command key on Apple computers) and push the + and - buttons to zoom in and out. If this doesn't do anything, click anywhere in the background of the web page outside the game window, then try again. Most browsers also allow you to change zoom options in the browser menu.
