      • Collect all the keys on the level.
        • Make sure to collect all the keys in the right order.
          • Sometimes, you start on a platform higher up than you can jump.
          • If you miss the key nearest to you, you will not be able to backtrack to get it.
        • When you’ve collected all three keys, the door will open.
      • Avoid various level hazards.
      • Move to the door to exit the level.
      • The game records the following statistics after finishing each level.
        • The time it took to finish the level from start to finish.

        • Starting over from the level selection screen will let you begin with a clean slate.
    • Level hazards
      • Spikes are permanent hazards you can readily see.
        • Touch them and you die.
        • Sometimes, the only way you can get past them is through the
      • Rock falls appear without warning.
        • Make sure you aren’t close to where they’ll fall.
        • Once the rocks have fallen, you can walk past them without issue.
      • Some hazards move.
        • A few are spikes that move up and down.
        • Others resemble evil birds and move from side to side.
        • A few resemble fish and move about freely.
        • In most levels, these moving spikes are quite easy to get around. However, some levels make them part of the challenge:
          • The keys can be destroyed by these hazards in one level.
          • In another level, they become invisible. You risk hitting them them if you didn’t memorize where they were.
    • Tips
      • While the basic controls are essential, they are not the only way to interact with the game environment.
      • We recommend clicking or tapping on various objects in the level to see what happens:
        • These include in-game mechanics such as keys or buttons.
        • You can also sometimes touch interface items like the hint box, level numbers, or level title.
      • The obvious choice isn’t always the correct one. Think outside the box.
      • When in doubt, check out our walkthrough.
    • Levels
      • The game has 30 levels, which are unlocked sequentially.
      • If you want to solve the puzzles by yourself, do not read our walkthrough.
      • You can replay any of the levels you’ve already unlocked.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like simple platformer games and out-of-the-box puzzle games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.

Walkthrough (Spoiler Warning!)

Due to our current policy on ads, we have disabled the ad-dependent hint button for now. Use this walkthrough to guide you through all 30 levels.

  • Level 1: “Very Simple”
    • Due to our current policy on ads, we have disabled the ad-dependent hint button for now.
    • Use this walkthrough to guide you through all 30 levels.
    • If you want to solve the puzzles by yourself, we recommend looking away now.
  • Level 2: “The Spikes Will Destroy You
    • Jump to the bottom and move to the left. Pick up the key there.
    • Move to the right and stop next to the spikes.
    • Wait for the moving platform to get close, then jump on it.
      • While on the platform, jump up to collect the next key.
      • Make sure you land on the platform after.
    • Once the platform gets near the right side, hop off.
    • Pick up the last key and move to the door.
  • Level 3: “Be Careful”
    • Jump up to collect the first key from your starting platform.
    • Jump off the platform and move right to approach the key, then immediately move left as fast as you can.
    • Rocks will fall at this point.
    • Once the rocks have fallen, you can pick up the next key.
    • Hop onto the bumper jump to pick up the last key.
    • Once you’re done, move to the door.
  • Level 4: “You Need Help”
    • With your mouse or fingers, select the hint button on the top left corner.
    • Put the box next to your alien, then have them hop onto it.
    • Move the box around with your mouse while the alien is on it to collect the keys.
    • Have the alien hop off the box and move to the door.
  • Level 5: “Hero?”
    • This one is particularly challenging to figure out for newcomers.
      • The hero is not present in the level and there is no in-level way of bringing them there.
      • It introduces them to how the levels are not always solved in a straightforward manner.
      • This theme recurs throughout the game.
    • To add the hero into the level requires some literal out-of-the-box thinking.
      • Quit the level and return to the level selection screen.
      • Select the hero on the top left corner and drag them onto Level 5.
      • Select Level 5’s icon to return to the game.
    • The hero will now be present. Play as you would normally:
      • Move to the left to pick up the first star.
      • Jump or hop onto the horizontal moving platform to pick up the second star.
      • Hop onto the vertical moving platform to pick up the last star.
      • Dodge the moving blade and move to the door.
    • If you’re replaying the level, the alien is already there. There’s no need to repeat the opening mover.
  • Level 6: “Where are the Keys?”
    • Hop onto the button 3 times to bring down the keys.
    • Pick them up and move to the door.
  • Level 7: “Push the Button, Open the Chain”
    • Pick up the other keys as you would with any other level.
      • Jump off the platform and move to the left edge to collect the first key.
      • Move close to the button and jump up to pick up the second key.
    • Pressing the button raises the chain. Releasing it will bring it down again.
      • However, you cannot move fast enough to reach the chain before it drops.
      • With your mouse or fingers, select the button yourselves rather than have the alien do it.
      • While your fingers or cursor hold down the button while your alien runs to the last key and the door.
  • Level 8: “Mario”
    • As the name suggests, this is a homage to our favorite Italian plumber. No, not his brother.
      • Hop onto the brick platforms and move under the crates.
      • Jump under the crate to hit it. This will release the keys.
    • Despite the level’s theme, you cannot Goomba stomp the birdlike hazard moving back and forth. Dodge them.
    • Move to the door and jump. This will reveal the hidden box.
    • Pick up the key above the now-unhidden box. You can now enter the door.
  • Level 9: “Be Brave”
    • Walk toward the edge of your starting platform and pick up the first key.
    • On the surface, you appear to be in front of an unpassable, uncrossable pit full of spikes.
      • Jump forward anyway. If you jump far enough, you’ll see brick cubes appearing nearby.
      • If you hopped on to the brick cube, keep moving forward. More will appear
  • Level 10: “How Fast Are You?”
    • This level’s rules are simple. Run to the right, then to the left, then to the right.
      • Stop only to jump.
      • Do not run into the edges (the arrow on the right edge of the center row is lying to you.
      • The obstacles will actually disappear as you run.
    • You will pick up the keys as you run.
    • Keep running until you reach the door.
  • Level 11: “L=B, R=G, U=R, D=Y”
    • The level’s name acts as a guide to the colored buttons:
      • The yellow button brings the keys down.
      • The red button moves the keys up.
      • The blue button moves the keys to the left.
      • The green button moves the keys to the right.
    • First, use the yellow button to bring the keys into view.
    • Don’t let the moving hazards touch the keys.
      • Use the red button to move them up slightly so they’re just above where the upward-moving hazard can get them.
      • Use the blue button or green button to bring them to the sides.
      • Bring them down while the sideways-moving hazard is away. Stop just above the hazard if you need more time.
    • Once you’ve brought the keys down to a level you can reach, pick them up and move to the door.
  • Level 12: “Swimming Lesson”
    • From the starting platform, jump into the water.
      • You automatically sink down.
      • You can move to the left or right and swim back up.
      • Pick up the keys while swimming.
    • You do not need to worry about air in this game.
    • The fish are your enemies here. Unlike most hazards that move in a single track, they move freely in the water with no pattern.
      • Float up or move to avoid the fish.
      • Move quickly to dodge the fish.
    • Swim to the door.
  • Level 13: “Mirror”
    • In this level, you and the spiked hazard move in sync.
      • Your movements are mirrored. If you move to the right, the hazard moves to the left.
      • The hazard cannot jump while you do.
    • At the start, you cannot jump over the hazard because the spot you meet is underneath the spikes.
    • The hazard actually has less room to move than you do. This is the key to your success.
      • Move as far to the left as possible and pick up the first key along the way.
      • Move back to the right and, when the hazard is close enough, jump over it.
    • Collect the second and third keys on your way to the door.
  • Level 14: “Traffic Light”
    • This version takes its cue from the classic schoolyard game Red Light, Green Light, albeit by way of Squid Game.
      • A button on top changes color from red, yellow, and green.
      • You can only move while the button is green.
      • If you move when the button is red, it’s game over.
    • You must also dodge the vertically moving spiked hazards.
    • Move slowly to the left to collect the keys.
    • Move slowly to the right to reach the door.
  • Level 15: “Memory”
    • Your starting platform has a switch on it.
    • When on the switch, select the switch button on the bottom right corner to switch between revealing the hazards and revealing the keys.
      • Memorize the location of the hazards and dodge them as best you can.
      • To save yourself the trouble, see if you can take a screenshot of the level.
    • Pick up the keys and move to the door.
  • Level 16: “Very High”
    • The one of the keys is too high for you to reach.
      • Drop the 6 in the level number by left clicking or tapping on it at least 2 times.
      • Jump onto the 6 and use it as a platform.
      • Make another jump to collect the key.
    • Don’t worry about the blue button; it does nothing.
    • Pick up the other keys by walking toward them, then move to the door.
  • Level 17: “Jigsaw Puzzle”
    • You cannot pick up the keys the regular way.
      • However, you can select the keys with your mouse or fingers directly.
      • Select, drag, and drop the keys to the key outlines on the top left corner to collect them.
    • After this, all the alien needs to do is walk to the door.
  • Level 18: “Precision Bridge”
    • This level comprises a log bridge spanning over the spikes.
      • You begin on a platform on the right side, close to the door.
      • A spiked hazard moves up and down near your side of the bridge.
      • The keys are on the log bridge.
    • Each time you walk on the bridge, the logs you step on disappear.
      • Thus, if you run through the bridge, you will not be able to move back where you started.
      • You must cross by making several jumps, taking care not to stay in the bridge too long.
      • Jump off the right side of the platform and move to the door.
  • Level 19: “Variable Steps”
    • The platforms in this game alternate from solid to intangible.
      • Land on an intangible platform and you fall into the spikes below.
      • When a platform disappears, you will not be able to jump.
    • To collect the keys, you must hop onto a platform, then jump just before the next one appears.
      • Collect the keys to the left first.
      • Pick up the last key to the right on your way to the door.
  • Level 20: “It Will Help You”
    • You start off on a platform on the left with a lever.
      • Activate the lever to make a platform with a key appear.
      • This platform will be somewhere to the right. It is too far for you to jump to.
    • The puzzle in this game is similar to Level 4’s.
      • The second key is hidden above the level title itself.
      • Select the game’s title and move it down. This will become a platform you can use to cross the gap.
      • Pick up the second key and hop onto the next platform.
    • Avoid the moving spiked obstacle on your way to the third key.
    • Pick up the last key and jump to the door on the bottom right.
  • Level 21: “Sorry Wrong Number”
    • This level is very deceptive.
      • The number shown on the side is *not* the number 21.
      • The level’s arrangement actually mirrors the first level, not the twelfth.
      • The only difference between this level and the first is the presence of a moving hazard near the door.
    • You cannot collect the keys to this level until you figure out the trick to the level.
      • This trick, of course, is in the number.
      • Select the number 2 and move it to the left of the number 1. This turns the 12 into a 21.
    • Play the level as you would in the first one. Watch out for the moving spikes.
  • Level 22: “Troublemaking Elevator”
    • You begin on the right side of the screen.
    • Two of the keys you must collect are above you.
      • Both are under a platform
    • The trick in this level is the elevator platform.
      • The first moving platform you encounter moves perfectly fine.
      • The second disappears when you try to make contact with it,
    • To actually reach the second key, you must jump underneath the first platform twice.
      • While the platform will remain unusable, you will gain the ability to double jump.
      • This will allow you to pick up the key.
      • The double jump function is unique to this level. You will not be able to double jump elsewhere.
    • Collect the final key and move toward the door.
  • Level 23: “Invisible Keys”
    • The level’s arrangement is similar (but not identical) to the first level.
      • There are three moving platforms. Two move horizontally and one moves vertically.
      • There are no hazards in this game.
    • The keys here are intangible. You cannot touch them.
      • The level name is a misnomer; the keys are visible (you can see where they are) but cannot be touched (intangible).
    • Like in Level 4, the hint button is crucial here.
      • You can move the button horizontally throughout the topmost row.
      • With your mouse or fingers, select the hint button and drag it to the title of the level.
      • Once the title says “Visible Keys,” the keys become tangible.
    • Collect all the now-tangible keys and exit the level.
  • Level 24: “Pixel Error”
    • In this level, your alien character flickers. This renders them invisible from time to time, but not intangible.
      • There will be visible signs that your character is still moving onscreen, even if you can’t see them.
      • Because you can’t see them, it becomes difficult to avoid nearby hazards.
      • Wait it out. They become briefly visible again.
    • Move slowly and be patient.
      • Visibility is the key to dodging hazards. Once you’re visible, move as fast as you can.
      • Once you get invisible, stop moving. Stay in one place for as long as you need to.
      • Repeat the process until you’ve collected all the keys and are close to the door.
  • Level 25: “You are Hero”
    • You start once again on a platform to the left. The area to the right of you is covered with spikes until just near the door.
      • Hazards patrol the area near the keys, though you only need to worry about the first one.
      • You can jump onto the box, but can’t any further than that.
    • To clear the level, you must “change your identity,” or take control of the box.
      • The box has a movable label (“BOX”) that you can select and move.
      • Drag and drop the label to the word “HERO” on the title. You’ll end up renaming the level “You are Box.”
      • The controls now move the box instead of the alien.
    • Move toward the other keys and stop at the now-open door. Be careful around the hazards.
  • Level 26: “Portal”
    • You begin with a level with a pair of blue portals.
      • These portals are the only way you can go from one side of the level to another.
      • Jump onto one portal and come out on the other end.
      • You cannot move the first portal.
    • At the start of the game, the right portal is located above spikes.
      • Entering it will immediately kill you.
      • To prevent this, move the second portal away from the spikes.
    • The second portal can only move horizontally. It is located too high up for you to jump onto; you cannot backtrack.
      • Before entering the first portal, make sure you collect both keys before entering the second portal.
      • Pick up the last key on the other side and move toward the door.
  • Level 27: “Math Quiz”
    • An equation appears at the center of the screen.
      • Each time you move a specific direction, the values of the equation change.
        • The left number changes when you move left.
        • The center number changes when you move right.
        • The right number changes when you jump.
      • When the numbers are equal, the keys are tangible.
      • If the numbers aren’t identical, the keys are intangible.
    • You must jump over the spikes and collect the keys in the right number of moves.
      • Move under or next to the key will all moves equal.
      • Move slightly to the opposite direction you plan to move to increase its value by one more than your desired direction.
      • Simultaneously jump and move in the desired direction to collect the key while it’s tangible.
  • Level 28: “Be Brave 2
    • Collecting two of the keys here is pretty straightforward. Walk to them while jumping over the spikes.
    • To bring down the last key, you must bring its platform down using the orange button.
    • Hitting the orange button yourself, however, will trap you in the pit.
      • You can’t jump out without dying because of the spikes beneath the platform.
      • The platform moves too fast for you to try to evade it.
    • To bring down the platform, you need an object to weigh it down.
    • The last row of spikes to the right will not hurt you. Stand on them to loosen them from the bottom
  • Level 29: “Where is the Key?
    • You start the level with only 2 keys visible. Collect these as soon as you can.
    • The key you need to search for is one of the words in the title.
    • Select “KEY” in the level title twice to drop it on the floor.
    • Pick it up as you would the other keys, then move toward the door.
  • Level 30: “You Need the Hint”
    • You begin on a platform on the left side.
      • Jump off the platform to collect the first key. The platform will tilt.
      • The second key is above a row of spikes that is too wide to jump across.
    • The last level once again uses the hint box in a literal manner.
      • Double click or tap on the hint box to bring it down.
        • Unlike all the other times you had to use the box, this hint box tilts but can’t be touched.
        • Make sure you’ve already moved off the platform when you bring the box down. The now-tilted platform will roll
      • Hop onto the box while it crosses the spikes and jump off it.
    • Pick up the keys and make your way to the door. Congratulations, you’ve finished all 30 levels.
