Run and jump across platforms until you reach the end of the level.
Attack or avoid wandering enemies.
Avoid plummeting off the edge of platforms.
At the start of each level, you are defenseless. Your only defensive option is dodging and avoiding your enemies.
To start attacking, collect a candy cane from somewhere in the level.

At the start, you only have 5 lives.
You have no hit points. Plummeting and making contact with an enemy will cost you a life.
