You are a scientist aboard a spaceship on a mission to explore strange new worlds. Unfortunately, the ship is running out of energy crystals. Luckily a planet that has energy crystals was just discovered. Of course, this planet is covered with deadly semi-intelligent slime. The decision is made to send down an expendable crew member to gather these crystals. Guess who that crew member is?
Levels are made up of the following :
|Ladders and Ropes
Ladders and rope are used for climbing. It is slower to climb a rope than a ladder.
Portable Holes are holes that can be carried and moved. The spherical holes are dormant and are picked up by walking over them. Once a hole is used, you can pick it up and use it again. It is vital you learn how to use holes.
You can hang on chains and use them to cross areas.
These are what you are after. You must collect all the crystals on a level to advance to the next level.
This gate will only appear once you have picked up all the crystals on a level. You use the gate by walking through it (or falling through it if it in the air).
These semi-intelligent creatures will chase you in order to offer you an invitation to be lunch.
