### Instructions

After the game finishes loading, you'll see the welcome screen.  Here you'll read that the game is control solely by the mouse.  When the game is being played, simply drag the mouse left and right to guide your pogo jumper.
As you're jumping from platform to platform, you'll be picking up stars. Those stars represent points.  So pick up as many stars as you can.  Sometimes you'll have to move your mouse very far in one direction or the other in order to jump from platform to platform.
Some platforms have checkpoints.  These checkpoints serve two purposes.  First the student must answer a multiplication equation in order to keep going with the game. This is a timed task. The student is awarded a certain number of stars based on how long it took them to answer the question correctly.  Second, once the student reaches the checkpoint and answers the multiplication equation correctly, the student can no longer fall below this checkpoint level. When you reach the top platform, you'll notice a star come down from the middle of the screen. Simply jump to the middle of the star to complete the level.
After you successfully complete the level, you'll see the level complete screen. Here you can see all the points you got from stars, and all the point you got from the time it took you to do it.  The faster you complete a level, the more points you get. After the points are tallied up, click anywhere to continue.
If you take too long to finish a level, you'll notice a little ghost will start chasing you. You must now hurry and finish the level before you're caught by the ghost.
The game will continue getting harder and harder the more levels you pass. But if you lose all of your lives you'll see the end of game screen.  Simply click the "Play Again" button at the bottom to play again.
