Play OverviewPlay Overview

Bonito Days (2021) is a pastel-retro rolling, jumping and gliding game. You roll down a slope to launch yourself into the air and then glide around before landing. It's a simple challenge that combines with the breezy summer aesthetic with lite touch exploration and landings.

Single-player involves exploring five different biomes. Each run down the ramp and glide is intentionally short. Each time you can tweak your trajectory so either get a little bit further, or use you momentum to head in a different direction. You get three goes on each area before moving on, which can be a little frustrating for completionists, but offers good reason for multiple runs.

Multiplayer is a competition like Monkey Target (in Monkey Ball games). You play with up to four people in split screen mode and each roll down the ramp and then glide around collecting hearts and then landing on a target. There are different routes to take on your way to the target.

In either mode, the aim is to collect items and power-ups to aid you on your way to the target. At the end of each level you get points for your performance. You are rewarded for taking more difficult routes and how close you land to the target at the end. As you beat the high score you get new challenges unlocked.
