Attack of the Pokies is a minigame only seen when Backyard Monsters is down for maintenance.
You need to guide the worker to the mushroom, avoiding pokies! For every 20 mushrooms you gather, a golden mushroom power-up will appear. When you eat that golden mushroom, you will turn huge and you will be able to kill pokies by smashing them with you body for a short amount of time.
One extra pokey will come every single round. If you left-click when the bar is red, you can slow down time for a short time. The game ends either if you touch a pokey, killing the worker, or get to the end (stage 200).
1 stage = getting 1 mushroom
