Bounce, swing, and sometimes explode on impact! Springer is a physics based game that uses the accelerometer and touch screen to navigate through a dangerous, but fun adventure. Springer is constructed from an industrial strength bolt with elastic springs for arms and a single heavy duty spring for a leg. He bounces his way around by tilting the device either to the left or right. Touch the screen and his arms will spring towards the touch location and grab ledges. The longer you stretch the spring, the more recoil you will have as it launches you high into the air. You will be amazed at the abilities of Springer as he bounces and swings his way through numerous levels of play.
Springer is not alone in this fun filled world. His yellow friend Smiley likes to playfully push him around and may help you along the way. But sometimes he pushes a little too hard and may kill you, so be careful. Stay away from Spikey, the red bouncing dude, because he does not like your mechanical nature and wants to harm you. The world of Springer also has extra lives, trampolines for huge bounces, power ups for surviving those big bounces, and even parachutes to slow his descent.
Although Springer is made from industrial strength poly-carbonate titanium, with re-enforced metal composites, he has limitations on how much tension his springs can handle from a large fall. Springer will let you know if he is falling too fast by screaming out loud. Try to slow Springer down when he does this, otherwise when he hits ground he will instantly explode into pieces.
