Yolk on the character selection screen in Leap Day.

Contestants[1] are the playable characters in the Leap Day series.

Behaviour

Leap Day

In Leap Day the player can unlock playable contestants by earning points in the most current level. Most contestants have identical behaviours and three selfie poses.

Each contestant moves left to right, turning back when they hit a wall. The player can make their contestant jump by tapping on the screen. Contestants can make one additional jump while in the air, in which they curl into a spinning ball. The double jump count is reset upon leaving any surface. This includes touching the ground or wall, jumping on an enemy, bouncing off a spring or getting a boost from a jump bubble. It also resets when going through a teleporter.

When contestants come in contact with a wall, they grab onto it and slide down until they jump away from it or interact with something else. If the player does not jump when sliding down a wall, the contestant falls back to the ground directly below or starts walking in the other direction if the wall meets the ground.

The playable contestants are vulnerable to all hazards and enemies and die immediately upon direct contact with most of them from the side. Some enemies can be killed by jumping on top of their heads, which rebound the contestant upwards. Upon death, a contestant is respawned at the last checkpoint the player activated.

This section is incomplete. You can help by adding the missing info.
Needed: Behaviour.

In Super Leap Day, Yolk, Puffer, and Sprout are initially available while Goop and the King have to be unlocked. Each contestant has an ability that starts at Level 1 and can be upgraded to Level 4 by paying gold coins.

Selfies

When playing Leap Day, the player can hit the camera icon located just below the pause button at the top right corner of the screen to take a selfie. This takes a screenshot of the game screen as the player is currently viewing it, but replaces the contestant's in-game sprite with one of the contestant's selfie poses. If the player has no selfie pose for that particular character they are taking a picture with, the screenshot will simply display the character's sprite as presented in-game.

Once the player takes a selfie pose, they have the option of sharing the selfie or cancelling and resuming the game. If they choose to share or save the screenshot, the previewed selfie pose is retained, along with the addition of the words "Leap Day" in red followed by smaller white text reading, "A new level every day!"

Selfie poses are one of the two prizes that can be obtained when the player fulfils their progress bar, however, they can only be unlocked for contestants which the player has already obtained. The player can keep track of the number of selfies they have per contestant based on the number of white camera icons that are shown directly below the character on the selector.

Trivia

The May 19th, 2016 preview with the earlier designs of the playable characters.

  • The character La Beef is a pun on the name of American actor and director Shia LaBeouf.
  • Solder_26 is a reference to the character Soldier: 76 from the video game Overwatch[2].
  • In the May 19th, 2016 preview for Leap Day, which showed the in-game sprites for the contestants that would be added in Update 1, four sprites differ slightly from their final versions: La Beef's head is closer to his body, Grill's skin is much lighter, Scalp's sprite has lighter skin, and the bottom part of Kepi's hat is green instead of grey.
  • Zweiclops' name is a pun on Cyclops. "Zwei" means "Two" in German.
  • On November 19th, 2019, following a series of hints on the official Discord, Yolk was revealed for the Smash-like indie crossover fighting game Indie Pogo. He was released on, fittingly enough, Leap Day, 2020. His attacks are references to various other Nitrome games, most of them from the mobile era.
  • Spoiler
    Glug's second selfie contains a character that looks like a female version of Yolk.
