To play the game, you tap and drag Adam’s tail in the opposite direction of which you’d like him to travel. Like a slingshot, pulling Adam’s tail vertically downwards and letting go will fling him straight up. Pull left, and he’ll launch right, and so on.
Each level is a maze with a lever that must be activated to open a pipe somewhere in level (normally at a higher altitude from where you currently are). However, once you activate the lever, toxic muck begins filling the area, so it’s a race against time as you flick and fling Adam ever-higher, in the hopes that you’ll reach the exit pipe before the muck reaches you.
There are platforms to aim for, and enemies crawling along the walls to avoid, along with power-ups to collect, and even bonus levels to unlock complete with keys to find and doors to open.
