You collect feathers to unlock new levels, but in a novel twist, can take on the end-level boss as soon as you like. Waiting until completing more levels gives you more health and a better chance of surviving the big bad. Along with health, you can also collect tonics to gain new abilities.
If you beat a level you can take on its alternative state, which changes them with water, electricity or flips them upside down. The clever design of each level to offer this multi-layered challenge and the combination of action, timing and skill needed to progress makes this a really good game to play in the family.
