The main goal of Jelly Escape is simple: players guide a jelly creature safely through each level, making their way to the exit. Each level contains three energy bolts to collect, with players earning a score based upon how many they pick up and how fast they complete the level. New gameplay elements are introduced as the game progresses, such as springboards that launch players high through the air, triggers that will flip gravity, and blocks that disappear when touched. The game features no violent or offensive content, with controls that are easy to learn and use, making it recommended to players ages 6 and up.

THIS GAME IS GOOD FOR KIDS WHO NEED HELP WITH:

Planning:

Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.

While playing Jelly Escape, players must often think ahead, looking over the layout of the level before navigating their way to the exit. The entire layout of a level can be seen from the start, allowing players to take into consideration the arrangement of all obstacles and enemies. This allows them to chart a safe path to each of the three energy bolts and devise the most efficient way to collect them. There are several puzzling elements to consider as well, as some screen edges transport players to another path, certain switches reverse the effects of gravity and some platforms disappear when touched. As such, rushing ahead without a well planned out strategy can easily spell defeat.

Time Management:

Being efficient and aware of our use of time and effort.

Aside from escaping enemies and collecting energy bolts, the only other measure of success in Jelly Escape is how fast players are able to complete each level. Players are encouraged to replay levels to improve their time, and can see a list of their best completion time for each level via an in-game menu. Sometimes, player may only need to tweak one aspect of their game plan in order to improve their time, like changing the order in which they collect certain energy bolts. Other times, they may need to completely reroute their path through the level in order to get a better time. In order to complete each level as fast as possible, players must learn how to begin the game efficiently and focus clearly on their goals and objectives.
