!!Tropes appearing in this game:
* ChestMonster: "?" pots release either bonus points or snakes.
* EdibleCollectible: The object of each level is to eat the eight "fruits" (which may be vegetables or mushrooms).
* EndlessGame: The game only has 20 "patterns," and the 20th one just repeats after you beat it.
* FallingDamage: Even falling one level is fatal, which makes it necessary to use the ladders.
* SelectiveGravity: All the enemies move from left to right and back with no regard for gravity.
* SpikesOfDoom: They may only be pins, but they're still pointy and deadly.
