Did you ever play the floor is lava as a kid? A key part of that was how the furniture was arranged, and where you place the furniture in this game will determine your success. To complete this game platforming skills are useful but where you place the platforms is even more important.


  • Drag and drop the furniture outside the room to places that will allow you to complete the level. Furniture cannot be placed on top of other platforms and cannot overlap other platforms when placed.
  • Drag balloons onto furniture for the furniture to rise further into the air.
  • Click the start button to begin platforming. You must then make it to the right side of the room.
  • When you make it to the right side of the room the lava will rise and you must return to the beginning of the level. The dotted line when dragging the platforms indicates this second lava level.
  • If you get stuck click on the gear in the upper right corner of the screen to access settings to restart the level.
