Bitey is the cute little cat creaVure you start with at the beginning. He can run pretty fast and make long jumps. He can also bite onto fruits to climb or to help other creaVures reach far places. With his average jump and quick speed, he can get most of the platforming done. You can count on this feisty, friendly feline to make friends and overcome almost any obstacle!
Beginning of game.
Bite (snap jaws to scare enemies in front of him).
-Bites onto fruit to create a swinging tail for others to use.
-Jump at fair distances.
-His bite can only be used for animals in front of him to scare them.
-Cannot jump well while in water.
Pokey is a hefty porcupine and the second creaVure you meet in the game. He’s much slower than Bitey and might need a hand or two to get around. Pokey can create a ladder with his quills in some designated spots, indicated by coming across quills already on the wall. One of Pokey’s strengths is he is able to scare animals with his quills from long distances and while swinging on vines. It’s best not to poke around with this guy!
End of Chapter 1, Level 1.
Quills (fire quills at long distances to scare animals)
-Uses quills to create a way for creaVures to get up.
-Scares animals from long distances, especially in air.
-Cannot jump well.
Zappy the lizard is the third creaVure you come across in the game. He can illuminate dark areas with his electric shock and rid of dark barriers by lighting up ghost mushrooms. With his height as well, he can reach some areas where Bitey cannot. However, his electricity may be his worst enemy if he does not tread lightly. With great (shocking) powers come great responsibility!
Beginning of Chapter 3, Level 1.
Electric Shock (Use to light up ghost mushrooms to open paths and to scare animals around him.)
-Can jump normally while in water.
-The tallest of all creaVures.
-Can use his electric shock attack to light up ghost mushrooms and scare enemies around him.
-Can illuminate some dark areas while walking.
-Yellow mushrooms will damage him back if electric shock is used.
-Cannot go near red mushrooms at all.
-Can damage himself and creaVures around him when using electric shock in water.
Rolly is a hybrid armadillo and the fourth creaVure you come across in the game. Like Pokey, she also moves slow and has trouble getting around heights and platforms. When it comes to underground areas, however, she gets around easily with no effort at all. She can break through piles of rocks and roll under small spaces with threatening animals. Whatever problem she has on the ground, she just rolls with it.
End of Chapter 3, Level 3.
Roll (roll to bypass and scare enemies or to destroy piles of rocks.)
-Can roll to destroy piles of rocks.
-Can simply bypass threats on the ground while rolling.
-Cannot jump well.
Glidey the bat is the fifth and last creaVure you meet in the game. He is the smallest character in the game and pretty feeble against attacks. He holds a special skill that is a game changer, however. Glidey has the ability to glide across long distances and is able to hop onto other characters to help them get across, which is especially useful for Pokey and Rolly. He may not be able to defend himself against other animals, but Glidey proves that big things(skills) come in small packages.
During Chapter 4, Level 3.
Glide (Hit spacebar again while jumping to glide.)
Glide Assist (Hop on a character using ‘F’ key and activate glide like above.)
-Can travel long distances in air.
-Can assist fellow creaVures to reach long distances.
-Very weak, low health.
-Cannot defend himself against enemies.
-Walks a bit slow.
