Hard Run and Jump Platform Game - Developer Glitchenstein
Guide an acrobatic, triple-jumping Frankenstein character through tricky, retro-style platform levels, with an added caveat that the controls are cleverly inverted as if there was a ‘glitch’ in the game play! Developer Glitchenstein is a challenging, multi-level, run-and-jump action game and brain teaser where you must collect gold rings and guide your very own Frankenstein monster to an Exit Gate in each level. However, your jumping hero's controls and moves are intentionally inverted, which means that pressing the Left Arrow moves the character to the right, pressing the Down Arrow makes him jump, and so on.
Skills required: This quirky, timing-based, jumping skill game requires sharp problem-solving skills where you must quickly get used to the unusual controls and maneuver your Glitchenstein monster accordingly. Swift reactions and hand-eye coordination skills are important as you leap from ledge to ledge in search of the rings needed to unlock the Exit Gate. Good observation and exploration tactics also come into play. Some of the levels are quite large so you need to be nimble and tactful with your keyboard control to reach the exit safely.
How to Play: A Flash-based, action / platform skill game for notebook, laptop and desktop PC / Mac (with certain browsers). When the game loads, click on the gold-colored ‘Play’ option in the bottom right corner of the advert to proceed. In each of the 23 increasingly-difficult levels, your task is to collect all of the Gold Rings, and then proceed to maneuver your Frankenstein-esque monster to the unlocked Exit Gate.
Control your hero's movement using the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard. However, the controls are ‘inverted’. Press your Left Arrow to move to the right, Right Arrow to move to the left, and your Down Arrow to jump. Your hero can perform awesome ‘triple jumps’ if you press the Down Arrow three times in quick succession. This is a very helpful action for reaching higher ledges and awkwardly-positioned Gold Rings.
