Description and Tutorial
It begins with a platform with a metal-textured block in the floor at the end. Two small beams travel forwards and back quickly across the platform. Every time these moving beams hit the metal block, the block suddenly bounces up, propelling the player up if he or she is on top of it. This launches the player onto an identical but higher up platform, where the same action must be commenced to reach the highest point of the floor. This next part has the same principal of a jumping, metal block, however, there is no wall at the end of the platform; instead, there is a ramp. The player must charge towards the metal block at the right time so that he or she is launched into the distance, where a platform hosting the only goal (blue) resides. With enough air, the player can reach a banana bunch floating above the platform. The other banana bunch in this floor is on a bridge going into the goal. You don't actually have to use the final piston. With enough speed, you can just roll over the ramp and reach the platform with the goal. You won't get any bananas this way, however.
Some floors use the same format of a platform that propels the player, for example: Trampolines, Jump Machine and Pistons, although the latter is slightly different, as the player must avoid being hit.
