How to Play


The aim of the game is simple - guide your ball down the track avoiding holes to get to the end of each level before the time runs out.

If you do fall down a hole you'll bounce straight back up again but suffer a three second time penalty.

Controls

Choose between touch or tilt controls on the main screen, in either mode you can pause the game at any point by touching the progress bar area at the top of the screen.  While paused you have the option to continue, restart the level or return to the main menu.

Touch Mode

In touch mode move your finger along the bottom bar to move the ball left and right. To jump touch higher up the screen with another finger.

Buttons Mode

In buttons mode move from side to side using the virtual buttons on the left of the screen and jump using the one on the right.  You can position the buttons as you wish along the edges of the screen to where they are most comfortable for you.

Tilt Mode

In tilt mode move left and right by tilting your device in the appropriate direction, to jump touch anywhere on the screen (except on the progress bar area as that will pause the game of course).

Hint: In either mode hold down jump while in the air to jump again as soon as you land.

Special Squares

Certain coloured squares affect the behaviour of your ball in the following ways:

Yellow Fast
Red  Slow
Blue Jump (doesn't use a jump credit)
Pink  Reverses your controls
Green  Disables your controls

Award Stars

Upon completing a level you will be awarded between one and three stars based on your time.  Try and get three stars for every level!
