The basic design of the game is quite unique and different comparative to other games. It is neither the side-scrolling platform game nor the puzzle-platform. As the protagonist is supposed to reach to the top of the tower, the game scrolls upwards as you go towards the top. The tower is explored from the surrounding in a circular path where the protagonist needs to climb up in the staircases provided. There are two types of staircases in there, the first is the wooden one and second primarily is the small platforms attached to the outer walls of the tower leading upwards in different or challenging patterns. Various elements in the game like flying enemies, Green boxes, Gold coins, snails and jelly enemies and others are quite distinctively designed, however, they do not have specific attributes to provide in the game.
You control the protagonist, a tiny purple creature with a bubble helmet, you are supposed to climb up towards the top the tower collecting all the gold coins. Without collecting all the gold coins placed surrounding the platform, you cannot go to the next level. You need to jump and use the staircase to go up and all you need to avoid is any contact with the various enemies or threat in the way such as Green boxes wandering in a path, flying bee-like enemy, snails, jelly monsters or any other threat. If you come in the contact of any of the threats at any point of the tower, you will fall down to the nearest bottom stage and you have to start all over again from there. You won’t be dead or out of life in case of that though. Interestingly, when you fall, you can do some movements to catch up on new platforms around.
Use arrow keys to move around in the game. Use LEFT and RIGHT to move left and right in the game respectively. Use UP and DOWN arrow keys to climb up and climb down in a staircase. You are also supposed to use SPACEBAR to jump. Make sure you get close to the edges from where you are jumping otherwise it won’t work. The jumps are very accurate and short, so you need to have a proximity level to the platform where you jump on.
There are various threats at the different level of the platforms to stop you or reduce your efficiency in the game. Any of this threat if you come to contact with, you will fall at the nearest bottom and you have to all over go up. It can be really disheartening, so make sure you remember these threats and do your jump before they touch you. There are green boxes which are placed at the different crucial points of the game where you are supposed to jump or walk on the staircase, so make sure you move when they are not at the point. The same goes for the flying bee or bat-like the enemy. The jelly monster and snails also move in a horizontal line, so you only jump and avoid them.
Tips to Play
1. Make sure to collect all the gold coins in the circular path before you go to upward level so you won’t have to come down again as you are supposed to take all the gold coins to pass the level.
2. Most of the coins are placed in a reachable spot where either you can jump or just walk through. Some places are quite strategic such as the linearly placed gold coins in the air. To take that all, you will try to jump twice or thrice to all collect all. Still, it makes sense. But there are some platforms in the tower where you can see the gold coins but you cannot reach as there are no jumping points around. For that, there is a trick, you have to go to the platform just above that and get yourself contact with the enemy wandering there. Once you get hit by the enemy you will fall to the nearest bottom which is where gold coins are and seem earlier unreachable.
