This is a free side scrolling platformer arcade game where you play an elf who runs and collects game gems (think of them as coins) while avoiding various enemies and critters. The mechanic is similar to classic video games but with simpler controls and simpler game elements. Your player avatar will automatically run forwards and all you need to do is tap on the screen to jump to reach gems/coins, avoid enemies, leap over pitfalls, and stomp on enemies. Although some of the critters such as the birds and crabs look cute they will bite if your avatar gets close to them. If enemy critters get near you, you can avoid them either by jumping over or landing on top of them. Collect as many gems/coins as you can and stun on each level to get better star ratings.
