About this deal

The main objective of the game is to collect keys which unlock the level exits, as well as coins and jewels along the way. It involves one player starting off making two moves, and the next player then copies those moves and adds two of their own. This continues until one of the players makes a mistake, after which the opponent is awarded a point. Completing the bonus stage requires one to 'activate' all the cubes on all platforms by rolling over them.

In the time trial the players take turns to determine who can complete each stage in the quickest time possible. Edge praised the game for gradually introducing new challenges as the player advances through the stages, comparing the game's progression to a "good Nintendo title". Kula World (titled Roll Away in North America and KulaQuest ( クーラクエスト, KūraKuesuto) in Japan) is a 3D platform puzzle video game developed by Game Design Sweden AB for the Sony PlayStation, which places the player in control of a Kula beach ball. The game was used in a series of academic studies presented at the European Conference on Games Based Learning from 2016 to 2019, examining effective gamification in a corporate context.Various elements and obstacles are introduced as one moves on to new levels, which means that the complexity and level of puzzle solving required gradually increases as the game progresses. Points are awarded when the player collects keys, treasures, and fruits and also when they complete levels. If you enjoy this free ROM on Emulator Games then you will also like similar titles Super Mario World and FIFA 14 - World Class Soccer. However, the magazine criticized the game's lack of replay value and the multiplayer mode for not offering split screen gameplay. The game was selected for the studies because of its score mechanics; with attention drawn to its presentation of line graphs for player score over time, score incentives, risks/rewards, and cult online following around achieving high scores long after release.

Additionally, playable demos of Kula World were shipped with PlayStation consoles sold in Europe that year on the "Demo One" disc. Points are deducted if the Kula ball is spiked, captured, melted, burnt by a laser, falls/slides off or simply runs out of time, all of which require the player to restart the level - providing the score has not fallen below zero, in which case, the game ends.The game was nominated for the "Best Puzzle Game" award at the 1998 OPM Editors' Awards, which went to Devil Dice.

The game involves making ingenious use of the various types of platforms and surrounding objects, from moving platforms and transporters to bouncing platforms and jumping pills. A move constitutes either changing direction, moving forward or jumping (either on the spot/forwards or onto another platform).
