The Bounce Pad wiki last edited by bobafettjm on 11/24/14 03:13PM View full history

Overview

A bounce pad is some sort of platform or platform derivative (like an actual pad or a mattress) that bounces the player upwards. This type of pad is generally used in two ways: a game mechanic in platformers that allows the player to reach new platforms or items that he could not jump to otherwise (example: Sonic, Sly Cooper), and in FPS games where the bounce pad is used as a rapid transport system for players to reach another area of the map. The latter type of bounce pad appears most often in multiplayer as opposed to single player (example: Quake, Halo).
