Game Mechanic

  • While the player only controls the jump of the frog (direction, strength and time), the dynamism of the levels creates a number of varieties and challenges.
  • Dynamism is created through the fact that landing on an object creates ripples, which affects other elements in the level based on their characteristics.
  • Ripples are created not only by the player, but by any other frogs in the level, similar to the effects other people have in one’s environment.

Download the free demo at itch.io and consider supporting the game's Steam Greenlight campaign.
