Quick Start Guide

- When you first fire the game up, you’ll be directed to its main menu.

How to Play
- Follow the Rabbit currently consists of 125 levels. I say “currently” because the level selection screen promises that more are on the way.
- The goal in each level is to lead the main character to the door. Simple enough, right? Of course, there will be enemies and other obstacles trying to prevent that.
- Movement – I’ve been doing research, and my findings have shown that moving in a game is pretty important. If that’s something you’d like to do in Follow the Rabbit, all you have to do is swipe. Swipe to the left to move left, swipe to the right to move right, and swipe upwards to jump. It should be noted that you can’t move left or right midair, meaning you can only jump directly upwards. Believe me when I say that the developers kept this in mind when constructing puzzles.
- Enemies – For the most part you’ll want to avoid all contact with enemies. They have a tendency to attack you or eat you, neither of which will assist you much in beating the level. One of the few exceptions is when you have something like a gravel block at your disposal, in which case you may want to drop it on their heads. You can also trick them into waltzing into a cannon’s line of fire, an act of catharsis if ever there was one.
- Clouds – Not long after you start the game you’ll encounter cannons that fire clouds. Which, stepping back a bit, is pretty darn awesome. It’s also useful, as you can jump onto them and float to previously unreachable places.
- Cannons – There are also cannons that shoot cannonballs. Sans the potential to kill your enemies, they’re really not on your side. If they hit you, you’ll have to start the level over.
- Gravel blocks – As I mentioned earlier, you can defend yourself from enemies by dropping blocks on them (assuming there are blocks available in the level, that is). But I’d advise scoping out the level to see if you need it for something else before doing that. They can fill in gaps, which is something you’ll require on many occasions.
- Balloons – Some levels contain balloons, which enable your character to ascend to new places. To use one, just jump up to it. When you’ve gone high enough, tap on the balloon to pop it. If you don’t pop it in time, it’s game over. Also, balloons can carry blocks. If it gets close enough to a bat, it will totally gobble it up and fall off the playing field.
- Buttons – You’ll eventually encounter levels that feature switches with the ability to activate/deactivate certain parts of the ground. The game conveys this by making the flooring different-colored legos. If the color of the button is blue, for example, then all blue tiles are hollow and not safe to walk over.
- Dual characters – In certain levels, you’ll be in control of more than a single character. When you swipe to the left, both of them will move in that direction. Be careful, as it’s easy to slip up and cause one to fall off the side of the level.
- Gravity – In the last section of the game, you’ll be able to tinker with gravity by moving your device around. When you flip it, the controls adjust along with it.
- Coins – Each section of the game consists of 25 levels, and each of those levels contains three coins. You don’t have collect all of them, but every set of levels requires you to obtain a certain amount of them before they unlock.
- When you’re in control of two characters, you don’t have to get both of them in their respective doors at the same time. In fact, it’s sometimes easier to lead one through a door and then only be in control of one character.
- To that same end, you’ll oftentimes need both characters to be in play. Rude as it sounds, you’ll have to do things like fills gaps with one and walk over him (her?) with the other.
- If there’s a floor above you, you can jump right through it. This makes ascending in the game a whole lot easier.
- On levels which feature a button that can activate and deactivate certain parts of the flooring, keep in mind you can still tap and use the button while your character is midair. It’s really helpful!
