Spiky platforms are a type of floating plant that appears in Rayman Origins. They are dark blue in colour and have a round red centre. The player can stand on top of the spiky platform, but its underside is covered with deadly radiating spikes. As an additional complication, spiky platforms descend a certain distance when the player stands on them, and rise to their original position only when the player steps off. If manipulated properly, they can be used to bubblize enemies.
