Description

The player controls the movements of an adorably stylized bear (of the teddy variety), walking back and forth (following the mouse pointer) with a little backpack on. Also along the bridge bounce boisterous bunnies. The bear's main task is to collect the bunnies in his backpack, through a deceptively difficult mechanism of jumping (with a mouse click) straight up into a bunny while it's athletically jumping over the bear. When his pack is bursting with bunnies (for ballast), the bear has the option of bungee-jumping down off the bridge (by pressing the space bar), past a beautiful waterfall. Then, the pack empties and gameplay starts over anew, with no ultimate goal but to reach and surpass a personal high score.

There are bonuses -- health upgrades and temporary forcefields floating across the bridge as well as a point-endowing apple bobbing in the water at the base of the waterfall, but those former will prove most useful as the bear has health deductions when coming into contact with a bunny in any way other than the precise contact resulting in rabbit-collection. Driving this home, periodically an angry lagomorph bearing a spear walks across the bridge deck, forcing the bear to jump over it or get hurt.

To help in the achievement of the substantial point boost that collecting the fruit at the bottom represents, the player has the option of looking down, way down below the bridge before jumping, so as to know where to jump from -- but the trade-off is that action up above continues unabated while this sightseeing is taking place, likely resulting in injury and possibly even death to the thrill-seeking bear.
