In the original Bounce game the player controls a red ball through many levels in a 2D side-scrolling game world. It came pre-loaded on many Nokia mobile phones and is considered one of the most well-known Nokia mobile games along with Snake.

The player controls a red ball with the requirements to go through all hoops. The ball can also become big, allowing it to float in water areas (which is coloured blue). The enemies come in the form of static obstacles as well as moving blue 'spiky' objects and firm yellow 'candle' objects.

The Nokia 9210 Communicator (Series 80) from 2000 (released 2001) was the first device to feature the game.[1][2] Through updated versions it was also pre-loaded on entry-level Series 40 handsets such as Nokia 6610 (2002), and Nokia 2600 (2004).[3] The game had a total of 11 levels. An additional levels pack (levels 12–21) was available to download for Series 60 and Series 80 (Symbian OS) Nokia handsets.[4]

Series[edit]

Later Rovio Entertainment teamed up with Nokia to develop new Bounce games:[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12]

Many unofficial "remakes" of Bounce have been created and are available on the Google Play Store or App Store.[13]

Level editor[edit]

An unofficial level creator called BouncEdit was created in 2003 which allowed a personalized level to be made.[14]
