Thank you Snowflurry Entertainment for sending us this game to review!

Fur Up is a vertical platformer game made by Snowflurry Entertainment. It is a rather simple game, but I still found it fun. Your character is a fur ball that jumps up onto platforms that disappear once you jump on them, so you must constantly be moving. Your goal is to jump as high as you can and then beat your high score which will be featured on the leaderboards. There is an option for multiplayer mode, in which it will search for servers online. If a local server is found it will be included in with the online servers. In the multiplayer mode, it can have up to four players playing simultaneously. Players can tell each other apart since the fur balls are different colors. Your fur ball could be blue, orange, pink, or green and may alternate between rounds in the single-player mode. During multiplayer mode the platforms do not disappear once you jump on them, so your only goal is to go up as high as you can without falling down or coming into contact any animals that may lurk on certain platforms (which will kill you).

Fur Up

Strong Points: Multiplayer
Weak Points: Certain annoying sound effects
Moral Warnings: Cartoon violence

There are different kinds of platforms you can jump on that have different effects when you jump on them. Most platforms you see will be one solid color, while others will have more than one color on them. These multicolored ones have special effects. Red & green platforms along with yellow & blue platforms will boost your fur ball up 10x higher than a normal one would. The orange & green platforms, the pink & blue platforms and the pink & green platforms will give you more points than a normal platform would. Also, if you jump on a platform occupied by an animal without touching the animal you will also get more points than one that isn’t already occupied.

Along with the gameplay, the controls are simple too. Gamepad is not supported, so the only thing you really need to play this game is a mouse. Left-click to jump up, and move your mouse left and right as the character follows as quickly as your mouse cursor, except somewhat following gravitational rules.

Score Breakdown:
Higher is better
(10/10 is perfect)

Game Score - 72%
Gameplay - 16/20
Graphics - 5/10
Sound - 5/10
Stability - 5/5
Controls - 5/5

Morality Score - 98%
Violence - 9/10
Language - 10/10
Sexual Content - 10/10
Occult/Supernatural - 10/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical - 10/10

The visuals are pretty simple, but also colorful. The way the animals are portrayed makes some of them seem mean and gruesome because of the way they were drawn, but I think it’s cute.

As for sound, the background music is appropriate. Sure, it loops, but in general I like the songs that play as your fur ball goes higher and higher up. However, there are a few sound effects I am not fond of. When you fall off of the map a downward spirally noise plays that I find quite annoying in its low-quality. Another one I don’t like plays when you die from touching an animal of some sort. Animal quarreling noises play and then a voice that says “You lost! Hahahahaha!” I would often get even more frustrated hearing that after I had gone so high and then died while coming into contact with an animal.

Overall, I found Fur Up to be a cute game. As far as moral warnings go, all I found was cartoon violence. And since this game is pretty cheap, I can recommend it to anyone who wants a simple multiplayer platformer as long as they can handle some annoying sound effects.
