In exploring levels, PP Hammer can run, jump or crouch. In addition, PP Hammer also has a special support device, a drill.

They are vials of different colors, and each has a different effect. For example, the blue medicine bottle helps you to jump higher in the air. Besides, conquering a level will have a limited time, and players have to quickly collect the treasure within the allowed time.
