Mr. Men Hi Bouncer
Mr. Bounce says:
"Hi! I'm that star of this game. You've got to give me a hand to help my friends the Mr. Men. It's easy... for the first five seconds! Just make sure I don't bump into anybody or anything!"
Mr. Bounce can move left or right, fast or slow. He can also jump. The size of the jump depends on whether you are going fast or slow: low jump (slow), high jump (fast). Mr. Bounce can also manoeuvre left or right in mid-jump.
Remember that under keyboard control, everything happens fast unless
you have the ? button held down.
There are four main screens, each of which has eight versions which increase in difficulty.
Screen 1 features Mr. Tall, who can't reach his scarf and then his
gloves which have blown into the road. Help Mr. Bounce catch them
by jumping through the air and landing on them feet first. Watch out
for the falling fruit later on.
Screen 2 stars Mr. Lazy who is too idle to finish building his house. If you can land Mr. Bounce feet first on the see-saw you'll
get things moving. Don't step in the puddle.
Screen 3 has poor old Mr. Bump feeling too bruised to knock any
more fruit off the trees. Help Mr. Bounce jump and catch the fruit,
and we do mean catch. You've never seen fruit move like this! Watch
out for the red and yellow fruit, and those puddles are back again.
Screen 4 is a sunny day, so how that Mr. Snow is melting! If Mr.
Bounce can only reach those clouds he can shield Mr. Snow, who is
still melting, so hurry. The birds, the birds, watch out for the
Quick hints: Each screen needs different tactics, so use all your
controls. When things get tough, keep on bouncing! Remember
to avoid all the other Mr. Men.
