5. Goals

Main Goal

Reach the exit portal of each level to beat it.


Optional Goal 1: Obtain a perfect trophy on a level

Perfect trophies are achieved by beating a stage below the time goal, collecting all orbs and reaching the portal unharmed, all of which are represented by indicators in the interface. Please note that obtaining each objective separately through different runs will not result in a perfect trophy and a full circle in the score screen.





Optional Goal 2: Time Leaderboard

Each chapter in the game has its own leaderboard based on the time the player has taken to beat it. the total time of a chapter is calculated by the sum of the players best time runs for each individual level. The lower the time, the higher the position in the leaderboard.

6. Obstacles

There are four (4) types of obstacles in the game. 1) Neutral, 2) Hurt and 3) Kill obstacles, which are represented by their color.  Many of them may be animated in a certain way or pattern, but ultimately they are classified by the 3 types mentioned above. And there are also 4) Air Vents, represented by gaps on certain surfaces and wind particles.
