Your mission is to take out the Warlord Bruce's Violet Army!

Jump, dive and punch to defeat soldiers and dodge weapons!

Rack up combos to earn score awards on 22 levels!

Keyboard, gamepad & touchscreen input supported.

Achievement medals & cloud saves supported through Newgrounds.io.


You can jump off the ground and use two midair jumps. Timing is key; Spacing them out can give you more height and distance. You can also jump from walls (which doesn’t count as one of your midair jumps). In this game you’ll move forward automatically if nothing's blocking you. To change direction, jump or punch from a wall!

Punching takes out enemies in front of you. To uppercut above, hit the punch and jump button at once. These abilities can only be done when charged, indicated by the fist icon in the corner of the screen. Charge is restored by landing on ground or taking out an enemy. You can also dive to deal with enemies below.

The more soldiers you take out, the higher your score for that stage. You can rack up a combo for each enemy you defeat while staying airborne. Each level has opportunities to score big points, so experiment! Better scores earn you awards for each stage, which you’ll need to unlock more stages.

As you progress, soldiers will use more weapons and gadgets against you. Some drop bombs when you approach, which kill on contact unless you deflect them with a punch. Watch out for mines, and find a way to indirectly take out enemies carrying one. Eventually you'll run into armed soldiers who open fire if you’re in their cross-hair.

Setup / Troubleshooting:

  • Slow FPS? Make sure your browser's "hardware acceleration" setting is enabled, or check your device's power saving mode.
  • On iOS, we recommend Firefox for the best gameplay experience.
  • For bug reports, please PM BobbyBurt.

Good and entertaining

Good game.

Let us skip pre level menus with X
I also dislike the pause of the level progression after the levels.

nice game i had fun gold ranking missions
just wish there was a restart button (FOR MOBILE) so you dont have to die every time you want to retry a level
ps had to edit the comment bc one of the devs told me that you can in fact restart the level without having to die by pressing leftshift on pc apparently and i forgot to mention i was talking abt the game's mobile version oops

Dry responds:

There is.

Nice, nice
