To reach the goal, you will have to travel a path full of advantages and disadvantages. You will find shortcuts, which will help you advance faster, but you will also run into drawbacks that, if you fall into them, will force you to go back. You can find them represented by green and red boxes respectively.
The first time you fall into a box containing a drawback, you can get around it by watching a promotional video or paying some bills. The next time this happens, you can avoid the fall by paying bills, if you have them.
Remember that you can also use the power-up "Horseshoe", to avoid falling into a drawback.
