Platform games are the easiest video games out there. They are also very popular; almost all the arcade platform games have turned out to be highly successful. These include games such as Pac-Man™, Sonic the Hedgehog™, and who could forget the cult classic Tumblepop™?
Tumblepop™ is a platform arcade game released in 1991. The storyline of the game revolves around kids who are surrounded by a sordid cast of mutants and aliens. These kids want to get rid of these creatures and they do that by strapping vacuum cleaners to their backs and getting rid of them through the vacuum cleaners.
The gameplay involves one or two ghost-busters who can suck monsters, ghosts, aliens, and various other oddball characters into vacuum-cleaner-like devices and spit them back as bouncing / rolling balls. Expelled enemies function as projectiles that can damage and kill other opponents on the screen when colliding with them. The protagonists work their way through stages set in different parts of the world, each with his or her own enemies and, at least, one boss.
The player has to complete every level within a specific period of time before exceeding the limits of an invisible timer. If the players do not manage to eliminate all the monsters in time, a Dracula-like beast appears and approaches them with a sinister laugh. If the beast manages to touch a player before he / she eliminates all the monsters, the player suffers an instant loss of a life. This also counts in the Boss levels.
After you die, you’ll reappear and be invincible for a few seconds. Take advantage of it and suck up as many enemies as possible without fear. Throughout the game, the player(s) can collect letters of the alphabet found in randomly appearing bubbles in order to gradually spell the word “TUMBLEPOP”, the progress of which is permanently displayed at the bottom of the screen. When completed, players are transported to a bonus level which gives them the opportunity to obtain higher scores and an extra life.
The player has to defeat the boss at the end of each level to progress further.
