Default • Pangolin • [a curious game of bouncing]

Pangolin is a physics-based arcade game that turns the classic platformer on it's head. Instead of controlling the character, you control the platforms.

Using a multi-touch interaction, create trampolines to bounce Pangolin though a surreal landscape filled with colorful curved slopes, sadistic spikes and teleporting targets. Testing both your reflexes and wits, Pangolin combines quick arcade action and challenging puzzles to create a game that's difficult to categorize, but easy to play.

Let us know what you think!

A great little game. It's a challenge, to experiment with angles and bounce intensity, to acquire all the gems in the level (let alone all the coins too! ), but despite this challenge, it never gets frustrating. A very fun game, great job!

I posted this in your General thread, but thought it would be better posted here haha (I had no idea this thread existed, actually D: ):

I was unaware a Pangolin was a real animal! It's like if an armadillo and a dragon had a baby. Regardless of the ridiculousness that situation may convey, it's a very interesting-looking animal. It's kind of cute.

Come to think of it, why oh why did you choose this animal to be the star of the show? Were you going for a play on words with trampoline / trampolin or something? :P

Edit: Then again, I guess it's as random as Sonic the *Hedgehog* was in its day... He's become a gaming icon so we no longer question it, but a hedgehog? Wtf!

Well, we came up with the interaction first and knew it had to be something ball-like. We started searching for animals that curled up into a ball (besides hedgehogs of course) and found the pangolin. We were pretty psyched to discover an animal we had never heard of. When we found out the word pangolin comes from the Malay pengguling, which means "something that rolls up," we were sold.

The whole Asian theme (art, music, sound) kind of followed from that.

Thanks for asking!
