About AirBear:

The AirBear’s sick of sitting around in a boring toy zoo full of plastic bamboo. He wants to get HIGH, and he needs help from YOU!

Draw goo trampolines for AirBear to bounce on and launch him up, up and away! Collect bamboo rings as he climbs to the clouds, but beware of bombs– they’ll knock the stuffing out of him! When you want to get down, tap AirBear’s head to put on his propeller hat, or else he’ll go SPLAT. Can YOU keep the AirBear airborne, or will he end up grounded..?
