The Nintendo Wii U version of the game supports up to 5 players for simultaneous gameplay. This is a recipe for confusion and chaos, but also for unlimited fun. The benefit of being more players is that you can aid each-others progression.
If one of the players would like to play, but are not skilled in platform precision, they can take on the role as Murfy the frog-fairy creature. The Wii U gamepad is used to control Murfy and by touching the screen the player can aid in the games progression in fun and innovative ways.
