There will be instructions that appear at the top of the game screen; here's the summary: move forward and back with the arrow keys (or keys "A" and "D"); jump with the space bar; hit "C" to clone your Bosch character; hit "E" to activate the switch; hit "tab" to switch between cloned characters. There will be times when you will need to experiment with these controls to get the desired results.

Our main character in the game is based on this figure from Hieronymus Bosch's masterpiece "The Garden of Earthly Delights," created between 1503–1515. If you click on the link in the painting title, look for this guy in the bottom right corner of the right side panel of the triptych.
