Game Story:
Alex never liked having to clean the museum floors with a huge metallic vacuum cleaner strapped onto his back.  He warned his boss that it was just a bad idea for a museum with so many precious breakable things.   “Well Alex, for that stupid remark, you will have to vacuum the entire museum yourself tonight!” and with an added evil laugh, his boss hurriedly left as he was missing his favorite TV show at home.

After many hours of grueling work, feeling hungry and exhausted, Alex reached for the delicious candy bar that he had saved in his pocket.  As he bent down to throw away the wrapper, the bulky contraption on his back smashed into a magnificent sculpture.  Amazingly, the work of art did not break but only vibrated like a guitar string….what appeared to be thousands of fireflies escaped from it and started to float down the halls of the museum.  In disbelief, Alex followed as many as he could and saw them morph shape and hide in various masterpieces hanging on the walls!  “This is not good, not good at all!” noted Alex as he closely inspected the changes in the paintings and wondered how he could fix this before his boss returned?
