Well done with this one! The graphics are nice and the music/sound effects are good as well. The platforming was well done and I especially love that op walljump! I literally wall jumped up an entire wall it was INTENSE!!! Overall, had lots of fun with this one... GOOD JOB!


The platforming is a little difficult to control but goes well with the bouncy ball theme. Nice smash bros screen splat animation and bouncy effects too! 


@Ready Steady Studios sorry to post this on your game page but I read your comment about my game and wanted to let you know that you have to right click on the ground to make a mushroom grow. Then jump on the mushroom to jump over the first big rock. Also I added a new video so it should be working now. Thanks for playing!


anyone having problems with windows 10 may need to minimize and select the icon from the system tray to get it to load.  another player resolved the issue by running it in compatibility mode. thanks again to all who have taken the time to play my game


Just watched the trailer, I liked how the ground bent when you landed, that's a nice touch.


I got a black screen when starting the same, but the sound still works. I'm on Windows 10 if that helps. The vast majority of GM games I tried worked, but there were 2 others that had the same issue.


thanks everyone so far for the feedback. As to how I accomplished the jumping it was all made in game maker studio. If youre interested in the code or the source send me a email (russell at


Really liked the jumping and landing interacting with the ground! How did you accomplish that?


Game Over!? I went through the door and got a game over haha. I feel like it should say winner but maybe it was the door of death. The character movement was smooth and the levels were enjoyable. When I died I had to quit to restart. I should have re-spawned or got sent to the main menu instead of having to press esc and click quit. Nice work! I am using Windows 10 and I was able to play it okay, just FYI.

When I open it using Windows 10 I just get a black screen.  I hear music all the time and when I left click I hear a sound effect but that's it.  Everything is black.  I hope that helps you troubleshoot a little bit.
