Features & Use
Jellyflop! is all about helping a jellyfish named Jelly reach his destination. And where else would a jellyfish want to be than high up in the sky? The problem is that jellyfish can't actually fly, which means it's up to you to catapult him into the firmament. The first few levels will explain how it's done, step-by-step.
At first you will find Jelly waiting for lift-off on a sort of platform. A shark is circling the waters below, so tread carefully! Draw lines that will sling Jelly in a given direction. As he is flying try and collect as many water drops as you can. You can't draw lines ad infinitum so mind that you don't waste them.
Jelly flies through the air as soon as you hit “Playbutton” (bottom right corner); if he doesn't reach a platform he may very well plummet into the water where he'll have a nasty encounter with the shark. Should this happen you can opt to start the level over again.
Every successfully completed level is saved automatically.
I was pretty happy with this game which deserves a three star “good” rating in my book.
