There is always room for one more puzzle platformer. Especially when the protagonist is a smiley, and even more when the game takes a well-known format and gives it a little twist. In Kolobok by Trinbox, the twist is that... wait for it... there is absolutely no jumping whatsoever. Gravity can be so cruel. Once you figure out that there's no point in pressing what you think the jump key should be, the rest is easy.
Use the [arrow] keys or [A] and [D] to move left or right, and down [arrow] or [S] to eat a magic mushroom. No, not that kind of magic mushroom, you hippie. These give you special powers. For example, you can only stay underwater for three seconds in your normal state, but if you eat a frosty mushroom, you can freeze water and then waltz across it. There are a number of obstacles, from spikes to spiders – some can be eliminated, while others have to be avoided. With twenty quick levels and just enough of a challenge, Kolobok won't take up a lot of your time. Having said that, sometimes it's quite difficult to beat the time limit and get all three stars, so the achievement addicts among you might stick with the game a bit longer. In any case, Kolobok is good fun and a proof that a little innovation goes a long way.
Okay, what's going on? I don't remember this game lagging so much when I played it on Newgrounds.
For me, the game lags worse on Newgrounds than it does here.
The 3 star requirements are tight. Really.
pretty solid puzzle platformer, but they could have done more with it.
Can't beat level 17.
Yeah, fire mode is so slow on some levels that 3 stars is impossible. Otherwise, fun little puzzler but not too challenging.
What you do is
Take the fiery mushroom, then start burning the wood directly to the right, but keep the right arrow pressed so that, as the wood burns, you roll over it to the frosty mushroom. Eat it, fall into the portal, roll all the way to the water, freeze the water, take the ball that makes you fly, then fly so that you enter the upper portal from the top. This will make you fall out of the lower portal at the bottom, and you can exit the level.
