A neverending series of platforms rise from the furnace below to the spikes above. Bounce too high and you'll burst on the spikes; miss a platform and you could fall into the furnace. How far will you be able to Bouncedown? Up to three players can compete in this fiendish, platform-filled game.


1. How many different types of platform are there?

There are seven different platform types:

  • Normal
  • Bouncy - the smaller you are, the higher you bounce
  • Cloudy - unless you are small, these will vanish
  • Moving - conveyor belts push you in the direction of the arrow
  • Growth - makes you big and strong
  • Shrinking - makes you small and fast
  • Spiky - gives you spikes to attack other players

2. What are the differences between the challenge and battle modes?

The one-player challenge is to survive for as long as you can. The further you bounce down, the faster those platforms rise! In two- and three-player battles, you just have to outlast your opponents.

3. What are the controls for each player in battle mode?

Bouncedown supports a 3-player battle mode, where you can challenge two of your friends on the same computer. Here are the controls for each player.

  • Player 1: Z and X
  • Player 2: LEFT and RIGHT
  • Player 3: K and L
