Humankind is at stake: nefarious aliens have invaded, and all who is left to save the world is… a whale? Get ready to use that tail fin to serve justice and protect the human race, as you bounce and flip across cityscapes in an otherworldly battle of the fittest!

Controls are simple: after your whale friend leaps from the ocean, tap anywhere on the screen to launch him into the air and tap twice for a double-jump. Bounce from rooftop to rooftop, and tap the downward arrow at the bottom of the screen to smash enemies and reduce buildings to rubble!

▲ Gain extra points for collecting diamonds consecutively, but make sure not to hit the ground – it equals game over!

▲ Bounce into the various alien enemies to rack up points. Think your finesse might make a good photo? Tap the upper-left camera icon to take a screenshot.

▲ Each purchasable whale has its own special ability, such as freezing enemies in their tracks or causing giant explosions!

Attack incoming aliens by bouncing and tail flipping them into submission, and collect blue diamonds scattered throughout each stage to up your points and use to purchase items in the store. Bouncing into the triangle power-up also increases your size and allows you to squash buildings without having to tap the dive icon!

Tapping onto ‘Mode’ from the home screen allows you to choose between alien attacking ‘Arcade’ and gate jumping ‘Slalom’ modes, both of which help you to collect points and diamonds that can be spent by tapping into ‘Shop.’ Purchase new whales with unique abilities, or power-ups such as shields and speed boosters, to help you save humanity from those aliens once and for all!

‘What does the fox say?’ In this case, it is more like ‘where does the fox move?’ – this spritely little orange ball of fur needs to make his way across a variety of colorful planets tile-by-tile. It is up to you to help him with quick thinking and timely taps!

He is always running forward automatically, but you can tap the left or right sides of the screen to change direction. The goal is to stick to the hexagonal path – if you stray too far off a tile, you will be taken back to the last checkpoint you came across and you will have to try again!

▲ Blue tiles will launch you into the sky – avoid missing the grid by controlling your direction in mid-air with taps!

▲ A light green tile will give you a speed boost, but be careful not to lose control!

▲ At the end of each level your current score is shown. Aim to collect all the gem drops and finish within the best time to truly complete it 100%!

While maneuvering across each level, collect as many blue glowing drops as you can to help raise your high score with each attempt. Different colored tiles can also affect the gameplay, such as the blue jump tile, the light green speed-up tile, and the red-arrowed rotating tile. Running across a colored tile will affect your speed or direction, so think ahead!

On the world select screen, swipe left and right to see what you have unlocked. The icons located below each planet show what you have completed 100% - including best time and number of gems collected - which are highlighted when successfully accomplished. Tap onto the controller icon on the bottom-right, and test your agility and perfectionism across a variety of unlockable achievements for an extra challenge!

These days, it seems that time is always of the essence. But, how would it feel to take control of it instead? Step into the shoes, paws, claws, and more of a bunch of crazy characters as you manipulate time to run for your life and avoid oncoming entities!

Your character will be continuously shooting, so just swipe up or down on the screen to move forward or backward – the slower the swipe the slower the speed, and vice versa. Swipe left or right in the same way to move horizontally, and eliminate oncoming enemies by rapidly swiping up and down as you move around them. Aim to collect green coins from similarly colored opponents as you earn points for every fallen foe!

▲ Time may stop, but the growing void behind you won’t – be sure to keep moving, or get blown up into blocks!

▲ Unlock new characters with powerful abilities, and blow the enemies to smithereens!

▲ Died? You can still treat yourself to a slow-motion background sequence and share an image of your score before trying again!

Amassing green coins allows you to unlock and purchase new characters, which are randomly presented before the start of the stage. Each character has different abilities, from an icicle throwing penguin to a heavy-shooting drone!

Love a bit of competition? Tap into the leader boards using the bottom right icon at any time to access overall top scores and top scores by character. Connect with friends to view and one-up each other's scores, and work your way to becoming a time control master!
