Bound Bear Quest ModeBound Bear Quest ModeGood news: just a week after the release of Bound Bear, GamePure has launched its follow-up, Bound Bear Quest Mode which is right now playable in your favorite browser!

Just like in the original game, your goal here is to bounce a little white bear back to its mother located in the right bottom corner of the screen.

You start with ten lives only, and you’ll get four extra lives in easy mode each time you reach the small squared bear (one extra life only in hard mode).

Bound Bear Quest Mode is even better than the original. It features more levels (I’m currently stuck at level 12!) and is much more challenging. Brilliant!

Have fun!

Bound Bear

Bound BearBound BearBound Bear is a new little skill game created by GamePure (Speed Cluster, Oshidama). The goal here is to hurl your little white bear through the air and make it land onto the big white bear located in the bottom right corner of the game window.

Control is entirely mouse-based. Aim the trajectory for your little bear by positioning the cursor and then hold the left mouse button to start the power meter. Release and watch your bear bouncing on the different obstacles. The more bounces your bear will do before reaching its target, the more points you get.

You start the game with 20 lives, and you lose one life each time your bear stops bouncing somewhere in the playfield. Try to catch the white squared bears to get extra lives.

Cute and nicely done, Bound Bear becomes quickly addictive. My only complain is that the game is limited to 10 levels only. Fully family friendly, here is a nice distraction for a coffee break.

Have fun!
