Jellyflop, from Concrete Software, is a brand new physics based puzzle game that just hit the Google Play Store. I doubt you ever saw a jellyfish fly did you? Well in this game, your jellyfish kind of does. It’s up to you to bounce a cute jellyfish around trying to capture raindrops and feathers. Along the way, you will meet new characters and earn achievements.
You are given a certain amount of jelly and your job is to draw lines utilizing this jelly. You can angle them however you want and make them as short or long as you need. The lines have a certain bounce to them so they will direct or re-direct your jellyfish, and hopefully you will collect all the raindrops as well as the feather. Watch out though, because if you draw too many lines, you could run out of jelly. As you would expect from a game like this, you will find obstacles like fans that could blow your jellyfish in the wrong direction. Other things like teleportals could be helpful or not depending on how you look at it. It’s really hard to explain this game, but if you check out their quick trailer video below, you will get the idea.
Along the way you will get the ability to dress up Jelly with stylish hats. The more raindrops you collect the more will be unlocked. There are also 21 achievements to earn, which are as simple as completing the beginning tutorials, to getting 3 seconds of hang time, and completing each zone.
- 5 zones and 100 levels of high-flying fun!
- Fun and addictive physics system!
- Draw lines anywhere to solve puzzles!
- Earn achievements and unlock stylish hats!
- Meet quirky characters along the way!
In Jellyflop you aren’t graded by the 3 star system, but in a sense the rain drops that you need to capture are similar. If you aren’t able to grab all the raindrops, you can still unlock the next level by grabbing the feather, but you never really feel satisfied unless you accomplish the task and grab all the rain drops as well. So if you only get one raindrop, it’s similar to getting one star on Cut the Rope or Angry Birds.You also earn points and they are based on how much jelly you use. I haven’t figured out what the points really represent other than bragging rights. I felt satisfied enough by just grabbing all the rain drops and the feather, but I guess you can always try to tweak your lines to get more points.
Everything is easy to understand since there is a really short and sweet tutorial, and everything is explained when something new is introduced. I found Jellyflop to be very addicting, and if you like physics based puzzlers, you have to try it out. It’s Free so you have nothing to lose.
