This is a platform jumping game where you can walk on all 4 sides of a platform.
Depending on how you time your jump you can:
land on the same side of the same platform you jumped from
land on another side of the platform you jumped from
land on another platform nearby or far away
fall off into space
Your goal in this game is to strategically move around various platforms to collect the yellow star on each stage.
Some levels have a number of black stars which you must collect one at a time to get the yellow star to appear.
By choosing which side you jump off of you can make it to almost any location, however some jumps require you to do a 180 degree move.
The cosmic tacos (or that is what they look like) can be bounced on, which allows you to flip 180 degrees and land on the platform opposite their location.
This game has around 22 levels, with slightly more if you count the ending screen and the playable welcome screen that start the game.
You can’t go back and replay previously beat levels without starting the game over.
Winning vs losing
You beat a level by collecting the yellow star.
You lose a level by falling off platform into space or by running into spikes, or having an enemy run into you.
This game offers unlimited continues, starting you at the beginning of any level you lost.
Survey the level
Levels are not timed, so it is a good idea to survey the level and map out your path before you go in motion.
When you go in motion it can be hard to stop, because to stop you have to jump & some jumps will lead to you jumping off platform.
On many levels you have to switch your starting direction right away to beat the level using the easiest path.
Jump & double jump timing
If you are jumping over a series of spikes sometimes it make sense to jump a bit early when you begin the sequence so you have enough time to land and make the next jump before the next set of spikes.
If a platform is not very wide try to do a smash double jump to minimize your time in the air and how far you will travel.
If you keep hitting your head on other platforms you may need to take an outside path versus an inside path so you have more airspace.
If you need to fall in a small chasm between two platforms sometimes you have to pass over the chasm and walk further in the wrong direction before turning around and jumping to fall through.
If you are on a platform with enemies it generally helps to typically try to move in the same direction they are moving so you have less relative speed and can avoid contact with them.
If you are stopped on a platform near a second platform with enemies be sure to time going into motion with when you will jump onto the platform with enemies, as it can be hard to stop without accidentally jumping into enemies.
The game is suited for players who like platform jumping games.
The game has no adult themed content.
