Gameplay of this Windows 8 platform jumping game app:
Playing this free game app in Windows device was fun. A good thing about this Windows 8 platform jumping game app is it’s controls work well and the game runs smoothly. And that’s what is required from every game. The graphics are okay. But, it’s the game play that makes this Windows 8 platform jumping game app fun. The game grabs you within itself, and you put everything trying to jump at the right time, and survive the longest. The game is all about timing. Don’t always try to grab every point, because doing that takes you to a point in the game where you won’t find any platform (scaffold) to jump. So, skip the points if necessary. You’ll get multiple points to grab during your run. The game control is too simple. All you have to do is press the space bar to jump. And to make longer jump, keep pressing space bar for a longer time. A really cool control in the app is mid-air jump. You can actually jump when you are in the air. This can help you at those time when you miss the platform just by few inches. Press the space bar, when you are in the air, to do the mid-air jump.
Like I said above, this Windows 8 platform jumping game app has four game modes: Super Cheese XL, Fuel Depot, Skill Course, and Power Ride. In Super Cheese XL game mode, you have to grab as many cheese as you can; during your run, and have to survive the longest. You won’t compete against anyone, but yourself. That is, you can play to beat your own highest score or you can play for achievements. The Fuel Depot game mode is the one where, you have to stay alive the longest, but at the same time have to pass by the fuel tanks. Because if you don’t, you’ll run out of gas, and the game ends.
In the Skill Course game-mode, the game tests your game skills. Because here, there are negative scoring as well, every time you hit a traffic cone, your score gets deducted by one point. But you can raise your score by crossing through flags. The flags and cones are kept in the platforms where you’ll ride your scooter. The last, but most interesting game mode is the Power rider. It’s most interesting and fun because, here, not only you have to grab the cheese and nuts, but you can also grab powers that can help you in staying alive for longer time and grab more points. At the end of each game, you’ll get scored on basis of your performance.
