I think what you are asking is how to use the same turtle
(dressed up in a shape) in different pages.

Once you setup your turtle the way you want it in one page
(shape, heading and instruction) copy that turtle to the other 

Then, when your turtle finishes doing what it needs to do in 
one page (stage of the game) clickoff on that turtle, then 
move to the next page and clickon the corresponding turtle 
in this new page.

For example, in the attached project when the horse
touches the black square the color "black" is programmed
in page1 to: clickoff t1 in page1, move to page2 and clickon
t1 in page2.

The color "black" in page2 is programmed to clickoff t1 in 
page2, move to page3 and clickon t1 in page3.

The color "black" in page3 is programmed to clickoff t1 in 
page3, move to page1 and clickon t1 in page1.
