Fun diversion for a Friday afternoon. In this very cartoonish Flash game, your job is to launch Bob from one platform to the next. You give him a direction and speed and set him going, and he flies in a beautiful parabola, ideally landing exactly where you want and picking up some stars along the way, but more often hurtling into space or plummeting off the bottom of the screen.
There are a few tricks you can use to make life easier, though: Bob bounces off the left and right hand edges of the play area, so you can overshoot and bounce back. And you have a limited number of airbrakes, so if you miscalculate horribly, you can tell Bob to abandon his graceful arc and drop like a stone straight down from where he is this instant.
Eminently suitable for the older, slower gamer out there who needs a few seconds to plan his next move (cough, Tilbury, cough). But lots of fun for everyone else too.
