In support of Adventure Time’s fourth season, Cartoon Network has launched a new browser-based game featuring Jake and his magic hat, called Jake’s Tough Break. The game is a mixture of puzzle and platforming elements in the same vein as Braid and Mario VS Donkey Kong.
The objective is simple: using the arrow keys or the WSAD keys, you need to guide Jake towards his yellow magic hat. If Jake gets to his hat, the level is won. It’s simple enough if the level looks like this:
But there are levels that look like this:
Jake can jump, but it’s only a few pixels high so you can’t possibly reach the hat by just leaping. This is where Jake’s ability to detach his body parts comes in handy – pressing space will make Jake detach his body parts, starting from the feet, to his hands, and even his torso, until you’re left with just a rolling head. In this particular stage, you can solve it simply by detaching a single body part and dropping it on the switches, so that the platforms will extend, giving Jake a way to reach the hat.
Go ahead and try the game on your own, it’s simply Mathematical!
