Take a red-eyed, flea-bitten crazy rabbit in pursuit of innocent cabbages, add a wide assortment of hazards to avoid and obstacles to get around and what do you have? Cabbage Maniac, a springtime themed puzzle platform game from Airomagic. To reach your goal—one perfectly delectable green cabbage—a few devices are at your disposal.
First off, you have helicopter ears which allow maneuvering (via [WASD] or [arrow] keys) around deadly thorns, fireballs and other threats. Next, carrots can be ingested and then spit back up with [space], useful for depressing buttons and lowering gates. Restart with [R] when needed. Gameplay resembles Pursuit of Hat spliced into All That Matters although this doesn't match their charm and polish. Flight isn't the most responsive means to getting around yet there's a certain appeal in regurgitating carrots (or is that just me?). Twenty-four levels progress nicely in difficulty without becoming impossibly hard but it's nice knowing the level skip button is there. Even sympathy for the poor panicky cabbages doesn't diminish the enjoyment of finding the way through to munch them up.
