In this game you play as Joe, a sentient blob who has been inflicted with a disease called IHTMOID (I Have to Move Or I'll Die) by the evil scientist who created him, and must make your way through a set of platforming levels full of various puzzles and hazards. The puzzles aren't too overly complicated but their difficulty is exacerbated by the fact that Joe loses health whenever he isn't moving due to the IHTMOID; therefore, you have to make sure to only stop moving when it's absolutely necessary (if at all) in order to ensure you don't run out of health before you reach the end of each level.
