You are allowed to bounce on three different platforms. Fixed platforms, moving platforms and rainbow platforms, which give you a little boost. You can also bounce on a variety of moving little bugs that are there to try to knock you off your path. You start out the game with three rocket packs that give you a short burst of speed upwards. There are refills that are available as you go, but keep in mind that you can only have three at a time, so you have to use them wisely. They are quite helpful in getting out of hairy situations like if you missed a platform and are about to fall. As you get higher the scenery will change from skyscrapers, to the sky, to outer space. There will also be less platforms the higher you go. There are restrooms that you can bounce into to take a little break, but they don’t do that much.
A recent update also added a checkpoint feature, which allows you to start where you left off from, instead of starting from 0 each time you fall. The game also allows you to play in either portrait or landscape mode. Once you do fall, you can play again, or you can post your score on a country scoreboard or even a world scoreboard. The scoreboards will show the player’s name, rank, score and country. I was quite proud of myself for getting a score in the 16,000’s which at one point ranked me as 4th best in the ever changing country scoreboard. The highest score belonged to somebody from South Korea and was in the 60,000’s. You can also post your score on Twitter and when the update comes out on October fourth, you’ll be able to post your score on Twitter too.
The updates are quite frequent and promise more features that will make this game even better than it already is.
Overall, this game is a simple, but challenging game, that is easy to play and will have you coming back for more.
