Jump King is a simple but extremely difficult platform game, which puts both our dexterity and skills and patience to the test. The production was developed by independent studio Nexile.

Plot

Jump King takes us on a journey to a fantasy world, dominated by a giant tower. During the game we play the role of a knight trying to get to the very top of this construction, where a legendary beauty awaits him. Unfortunately, the road to the goal is long and bumpy, and in order to achieve success, our hero must become the Jumping King.

Mechanics

In the game Jump King, we observe the action from the side. During the game, we jump from platform to platform, constantly climbing up. Apart from regular jumps, hero is also able to perform "charged" jumps, with which he covers longer distances. As the platforms are separated by different distances, each jump has to be measured accordingly... ...or count on luck. If we fail, the main character will fall. And this one can be painful, even though the hero can't die. The state of the game is saved automatically, which means that a flight into the abyss can destroy our efforts of the last few hours, or even force us to repeat the strenuous climbing from the very beginning.

It is worth remembering that there is often more than one road leading upwards, and this most obvious path is not always the easier one. Besides, the knight meets various characters in the tower; interaction with them allows us not only to get to know their adventures, but also to deepen our knowledge about the presented world.

Technical aspects

Jump King has simple, but colorful and clear graphics made in the pixel art technique. The retro style is complemented by an 8-bit sound layer.
