This game starts off as a simplistic looking easy bouncing platformer game but gets progressively more difficult as you progress through the game to where it is masochistically hard in the last half dozen stages.
This game includes the following features
Horizontally moving platforms – since you bounce you do not move along with them & you have to move horizontally to stay on them as they move from side to side.
Vertically moving platforms – you have to time your jumps on or off these so that you do not hit your head or feet on spikes.
Spikes – one touch death.
Breakable platforms – you can jump on them once each then they disappear.
Springs – these help you bounce over larger chasms and taller obstacles. In some areas there are spikes above you, requiring you to jump over the springs rather than use the springs.
Stars – you can collect up to 3 stars on each level
Warp arrow boxes – when you step on these they will move you in the direction shown on their face until you tap a direction button to stop the flight.
Smashing spikes – these can crush you, requiring you to stand on either side of them & time your move across when they are not snapping closed.
Magnets – these reverse gravity, forcing you to dramatically adjust your path as you move. A jump that was a bit high becomes one that was a bit low when gravity flips.
Blades – these can be challenging to jump over without bumping them. On some levels there are 2 of these in a row with a breakable platform in between.
Spinning blades – this forces you to time your jump which just barely makes it over a blade to also be in sync with the spin of two blades moving in a circle together. Some levels have multiple sets of these in a row. It helps to move through these with a lot of horizontal force or speed so that you are traversing through them roughly perpendicularly, similarly to how it is easier for a high arc basketball shot to make it through a hoop. It may take a couple spins around to get your horizontal movement, your bounce, and the movement of the spinning blades aligned to make a safe passage.
Moving blades – on the final level some of the blades move along platforms.
What makes the later levels of this game so challenging are how obstacles are stacked.
For example, on the final level you have to go through a set of spinning blades while bouncing upside down on the ceiling of the level, take a spring, hit a warp arrow box, stop your warp movement before you run into spikes while trying to land the dismount on a horizontally moving platform (which is not even on the screen when you start flying & changes both positions and speed), hit a couple consecutive springs, hit a magnet to flip orientation, jump onto two separate breakable platforms, then jump onto a broad platform with multiple moving blades on it.
You beat levels by getting to the checkered finish line at the end of the stage.
You can collect up to 3 stars in each level.
The level select screen shows your star rating for each level.
You can go back and replay previously beat levels to try to improve your star rating.
Your stars can be used to purchase other balls. In addition to the default black ball you can unlock the following:
Basketball costs 15.
Soccer ball costs 20.
Pool ball costs 30.
Baseball costs 35.
Tennis ball costs 35.
Neptune costs 70.
Pluto costs 70.
Mars costs 80.
Earth costs 100.
The other balls have the same gameplay as the default ball, though the color contrast on them is a bit lower in some areas, making them harder to use.
Take your time
Levels do not have a time limit.
Certain parts of the level like breakable platforms require you rush. If you are not on a breakable platform and are at a static spot you can stop for a second to regather and strategize before moving on to the next hard part of the level.
If obstacles appear & disappear you can use the background design to help you know where to stand horizontally while waiting through cycles.
Measure your jumps
When you are making long jumps get your body halfway or more off the platform so that you make the required jump shorter.
Sometimes if you try to jump multiple times in a row across different springs one of the jumps will short cycle, so it makes sense to do an extra cycle on a spring if standing on it will not cause you to bump your head into spikes.
For most jumps you want to time your horizontal movement for when you are near the ground, though on some jumps where you are jumping over blades you have to jump straight up and then time your movement across near the apex of your jump.
You do not need to get all 3 stars to beat a level.
If you can beat a level with fewer stars you can always go back and replay it later.
The game is suited for players who like level escape platformer games.
The game has no adult themed content.
