Remember Bruno? Bruno was the absolutely gorgeous and handsome Neovian blue gelert that, due to some misunderstanding and lack of self-confidence turned into a mutated monster (but a monster with a kind heart!) during the Tale of Woe plot. As TNT never allowed him to come back to his pretty form they gave him a game instead!

For us he’ll be forever pretty inside! TT_TT *fangirl pitched scream*


This game has simple controls:

  • Left Arrow – Run left
  • Right Arrow – Run right
  • Up and Down arrow – Look up and down (this can come very useful on levels with jumping enemies)
  • Spacebar – Jump. It’s essential.
  • P – Pause



To score, and finish the level, you must catch potions. The number raises when you pass to an higher level (it’s supposed to make things harder). You must bring the potions back to the cave and they score on the following pattern:

  • First – 5 Points
  • Second – 10 Points
  • Third – 25 Points
  • Fourth – 50 Points
  • Fifth and more – 100 Points

To reach the maximum score per level you MUST bring all the potions at the same time to the cave. The maximum score per game is 5180 points. This is a tie trophy, so if you want to win it, play a few minutes before the reset and send right away.



The Screen
The levels are round, so you don’t need to bother about losing a potion. However, this can be tricky with the “jumping enemies” (see next section). When starting a level I recommend that you go slowly just to see how the level is and then run for the potions. There is no time limit, so don’t worry about taking too long when being careful.


There are two kinds of bad people that will try to catch Bruno and kill him.

Stone Throwers:
These run on the same platform and throw stones. You can jump over them. To avoid the stones I recommend changing platform or waiting that it falls on a far place. Be careful when jumping over them (this will require some train) as you may fall over the enemy.

The Jumpers:
These are very dangerous as they can jump between platforms as you do. I recommend that you look around to see if they’re anywhere (unless you want a mutated kacheek to fall over your head, which would be honestly painful) and if they are on your platform just run from it no matter what. They also have the secret ability of stone throwing.

Take Bruno to the left side of the platform above the potion and fall to the right. Bruno will now be inside the wall. Fall two “bricks” in the wall and go to the right. Eventually you’ll fall on the platform.

Level 10
690 Points
Here you’ll have to do a bery big jump, so make a long run. Be aware of the tunnel.

Stay as close as possible to the walls. Be aware of the ixi on the last platform: jump to right when it’s near the corner.

Level 12
590 Points.
Be aware of the corridors, the low ceilings make jumping over enemies troublesome. If you find an enemy there, go all your way back.
