Instructions

Subtraction Pogo Step 1After the game finishes loading, you'll see the welcome screen.  Here you'll read that the game is controlled solely by the mouse.  When the game is being played, simply drag the mouse left and right to guide your pogo jumper.
Subtraction Pogo Step 2 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.
Subtraction Pogo Step 3 When a subtraction equation pops up, answer it quickly.  The longer it takes, the more stars you lose.
Subtraction Pogo Step 4 After you successfully complete the level, you'll see the level complete screen. Here you can see all the points you earned from stars, and all the points you received from the time it took you to complete the level.  The faster you complete a level, the more points you get. After the points are tallied up, click anywhere to continue.
Addition Pogo Step 5 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.
Addition Pogo Step 6 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.
