How to Play

Minimize sunlight exposure and make your way to the ice platform at the end of the level.

  • Starting the Game
    • Select the play button on the game loading screen. This will bring up the game welcome screen where you can select which level you want to play.
      • Initially only the first level is playable. Each time you beat a level it unlocks the next level.
      • Your web browser automatically saves your game progress.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Use the left and right arrow keys to move left or right. You can also use the A and D keys.
      • Use the up arrow key to jump. You can also use the W key.
      • While jumping press the down arrow key to split in half. You can also use the S key.
      • Press the spacebar to switch between characters when you are split in half.

    • Touchscreen devices
      • This game was designed for desktop play.
  • Game Play
    • Life
      • Whenever you are directly exposed to sunlight & are not in the water you lose health.
        • Ice platforms exposed directly to the sun also melt away.
        • Sunlight does not impact you or other objects when they are below the surface of the water.
      • Whenever your life reaches below 25% it is game over.
      • If you split your ice cube in half each piece gets 50% health, meaning you can’t lose more than 24% with either or it is game over.
    • Strategy
      • Wait for when light beams are dim and narrow so they do less damage and pass through them quickly.
      • Sometimes it makes sense to split immediately, while other times it makes sense to play a portion of the level as a single ice cube then split after making part way through.
      • On many levels you need to move platforms either into positions to activate switches or to help make jumps shorter.
      • Some levels have red bars that block the sunlight which when retracted lead to the sunlight hitting whatever is beneath them.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for people of all ages who like level escape & logic puzzle games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
