Trampoline Terror! is a 1990 action game by NCS and DreamWorks published by Masaya exclusively in the US. A Japanese release under the name Explode Star(エクスプロード・スター) was planned, but cancelled for unknown reasons. The game was never announced or released in Europe in any form.
Aliens from space invade Earth, protecting their ship with 32 trampoline-filled levels of shields. Lucky for you, the titular Trampoline Terror, the levels are perfect for you to go in and destroy the shield.
and jump. Objects called "P-Balls" are scattered around each level; collect them by touching them and then use to shoot them out; they can be used to defeat enemies. Trampolines — solid green squares — cause you to jump higher and change color from green to yellow to blue to red before breaking with each successive jump; try to lure enemies into the resultant holes to destroy them. The level ends when all self-destruct switches (a square with an X and a colored circle in the middle) are destroyed; merely walk on one to destroy it.
There's a combo system in place, where if you trigger several switches of the same color in succession you get a higher score. If the combo is large enough, some special event (such as a massive explosion or invincibility) will trigger, depending on the color of the switches.
