Gumball’s Tension in Detention Escape Game for Kids Game Play Instructions

How to Play

Make your way through each level while collecting as many stars as you can. Avoid touching dangerous spikes and don’t get hit by the hallway monitoring robots.

  • Starting the Game
    • Click the blue white and orange PLAY button on the game’s welcome screen.
      • This will bring up the level select screen.
      • If it is your first time playing the game only the first level will be unlocked.
        • The subsequent 35 levels are only unlocked when prior levels have been completed.
        • Your web browser automatically stores your beat levels and star ratings for each level.
      • You can go back and play previously beaten levels to try to achieve a higher star rating.
        • Your stars from prior plays where you made it to the end are saved, so you only have to get any remaining stars you did not already collect.
    • The game’s welcome screen also contains a sound control button in the upper right corner.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use the left and right arrows to move left or right.
        • In some screens they may work as expected while in other screens they may work backward.
        • Technically you are not controlling Darwin directly, rather you are controlling how his moves are interpreted through the school’s security camera system.
      • Use the spacebar to pick up or drop a box, activate a switch, enter a chute, or exit the level door.
      • Use the up arrow to jump.
    • Mobile
      • On mobile there is a direction pad in the lower left corner of the screen, but this game is much harder to play on mobile than on desktop.
    • The top of the game shows your current level number and then has 3 buttons for restart level, pause game and sound control.
    • The bottom of the game shows how many of the 3 stars you have obtained in the current level so far.
  • Game Play
    • Level Difficulty
      • The game starts off easy but the difficulty level ramps up quickly.
      • Initially levels are straightforward with cameras being sequential and the movement buttons working as depicted, but as you advance some screens are out of order while others have the arrow keys work backward and/or are upside down.
        • It is easy to get disoriented when you move between screens where the arrow keys then function backward on one screen versus the next.
      • After level 11 coffee is spilt on the security camera control circuitry which causes additional glitches. Where something is flashing gray and white snow indicates a part of the level that has been disappeared or disabled.
        • You have to drop boxes on switches to change the level layout – disappearing some parts of the level design while turning other parts solid.
        • You may need to use the same box on multiple different switches at different points in time.
        • In some cases you may need to grab an item from one screen & drop it off a ledge in another screen.
      • After level 25 Principal Nigel Brown grows more concerned and introduces robotic hallway monitors to the the game.
        • You need to avoid touching the hallway monitors.
        • In many cases beating the level and collecting all the stars in it requires you to adjust some switch settings with boxes or standing on them to help guide robots along so they flip other switches.
        • While levels are not timed, some jumps require impeccable timing based on the movements of the robots and the switches they interact with.
    • Scoring
      • You can score up to three stars in each level by collecting them, though you can unlock subsequent levels with a zero star rating.
      • You can go back and collect the remaining stars you missed from levels you already beat.
    • Dying
      • You die if you hit the spikes, hit a hall monitor, or fall off platform in a way which does not have you land on another safe area.
        • On some levels you are required to fall across screens to progress, so some aspects of the game are trial and error.
      • If you die you can repeat the level an infinite number of times.
      • Some games use boxes as things with hard edges that prevent you running past them onto adjacent spikes.
        • This game is not one of those games.
        • It is exceptionally easy to accidentally run into spikes even if you thought you had them blocked with boxes.
    • Level 36 walkthrough
      • You start in the top square in the center role.
      • The square just underneath it is like the secret forest in the original Legend of Zelda.
        • Walk into the second square in the center, grab the box, and walk back left toward where you came from.
        • When you exit the screen you will re-enter the same exact square again but on the right.
        • Drop the box to where you can jump on it and climb up to the top side of the right.
          • You can drop the box over the spikes if you want to collect the star by jumping right from the left platform above. The goal of putting the box on the spikes there is not to help you get to the star, but rather to give you a spot to land when you do so.
        • From the top platform in the center square walk across right and you will re-enter on the left where the garbage chute is.
        • Enter the garbage chute and you will pop out at the top part of the top screen on the left. Your character will be hard to see as you are located perfectly behind the level number. Super annoying.
        • You need to jump across the top row of the top square, but the center pieces you land on are only there for a fraction of a second when the robot on the bottom is rolling over the right switch.
          • You have to jump even before the platform is there, take a step or two on it & then immediately jump again.
          • Once you get across the top of the top square there is a garbage chute you can go through. It is perfectly aligned behind the sound control button.
          • This will pop you out in the chute in the left screen, so time your move to where the hallway monitoring robot patrolling that area does not hit you.
        • You can grab the star on the left side of the left screen and stand on the elevated block away from the robot. Then time your next move to get the third star based on the movement of the robot which tours the bottom screen.
        • Then time going to the bottom right to pick up that star without being seen by the hall monitor.
        • Next you climb the top right side of the leftmost screen. Move across to the subsequent screen which is the bottom screen. Stop just short of the spikes.
          • These spikes require precise timing. The only go away for a fraction of a second when the bottom robot rolls over the left switch.
          • Jump right, timing your landing to be near the spikes when the robot is over that switch.
          • As soon as you land immediately jump right again.
          • Climb the right edge of the screen and you will make your way to the right frame with the exit to the outside world.
  • Target Audience
    • This game is fun for Gumball fans of all ages.
      • The early levels are quite easy, but when you get up into the 20s and 30s some younger kids might get frustrated by the increased difficulty level, particularly when movements need to be timed based on the actions of hall monitoring robots.
    • There are no adult themes in the game.
