Kapowski is thrown to the ground

Kapowski's Boss: That's it Kapowski, I've had it with you! That was your last chance! Get out of my sight - you're fired!

Kapowski: I can't believe that you're going to fire me on my birthday?

Kapowski's Boss: It ain't your birthday Kapowski... It was last month... I was at the party!

Kapowski: I don't see what the problem is... I was doing the work double quick!

Kapowski's Boss: I've told you before to use the standard issue equipment and not those stupid gloves you invented!

Kapowski: These "stupid" gloves allow me to climb any surface. I could get anywhere with these!

Kapowski's Boss: If you're so clever then let's see you get back to the top of Glassworks without any help! Ha ha ha!

Kapowski's Boss leaves through his flying chair

Kapowski: I'll show you - you just watch me!

Enemies

  • Cleaners - These robots move about on the glass. They can be defeated by knocking them off the glass from the opposite side they are on.
  • Propeller spheres - These small robots fly around the level. Contact with them is deadly.
  • Security guards - These guards are located inside the cylindrical office sections. When Kapowski climbs past their section, they will run to a switch and press it. The switch electrifies the section of the office cylinder.
  • Birds - These hazards can harm the player through physical contact or through pooping on the player. They can be killed if the player punched them, though this can only be done if they are on glass that is on the opposite side of the player.
  • Paper throwing cleaners - These cleaners move up and down in their cable cars and throw paper at Kapowski. They can throw on both sides of the glass.

Interactive objects

  • Glass - This object can be held onto and hit.
  • Transporter platforms - These moving objects are used to transport Kapowski to the next level.
  • Hologram squares - These objects serve the same purpose as glass, except they will disappear a few seconds after being activated by a button.

Hazards

  • Molten glass - These beams will instantly burn Kapowski. Encountered in red and purple, red found on top of glass and purple behind.
  • Slippery glass - This glass is slippery and causes Kapowski to slip downwards.
  • Electricity - Electricity does not instantly kill Kapowski but harms him. Guards in sky offices will activate electricity traps is they spot Kapowski.
