How you play

Choose which direction to roll the ball in, then watch it go until it hits an obstacle. Collect feathers or coins in your path. Some game elements change the ball's path, while others react to being hit by the ball. Try to interact with everything to figure out how they work! Take your time to figure out the best solution for each puzzle. Or, if you get stuck, use the integrated hints system for a bit of help with the next move. Or all of them, it's up to you!

In story levels, the goal is to collect all the feathers before your run out of moves. Each collected feather reveals another bit of the story. In coins levels, the goal is to collect all coins and depending on how many moves you make, you're awarded up to three gems. Besides showing your puzzle solving skills, gems are also used to unlock new chapters. As for coins, you'll be able to spend those on skins to customize the rolling ball!
