JellyCar Worlds is a puzzle game about a car made of jelly traversing a squishy world. You use the physics properties of the car and the objects in the world to get from A to B. It's an action puzzle game that stands out for the joyous novelty of a malleable vehicle and imaginative ways to solve geometrical problems. Novelty oozes from every pore, but it's the pixel-perfect execution and ability to balance your jelly car with nuance and skill that make this stand out from the crowd.
