One Step Beyond Star of the game is Colin Curly, dog, who loves Quavers (snack). It was stormy night and Colin was playing his favorite game Pushover. Accidentally was Colin being digitized and curlified into his computer when he completed his final level. Colin was trapped inside of his own computer and an amazing array of challenges standed between him and escape from electronic nightmare.

You have to move Colin Curly from the ENTRY packet to the EXIT packet by jumping from one platform to the next. Colin can only escape the level if ALL the platforms have shut before he reaches the exit.

As Colin steps off a platform, it will slide shut behind him never to open again unless it has special properties. So it is important to work out the correct route to follow in order to close all the platforms before Colin reaches the EXIT but still be able to move around the screen. [source:mobygames]
