Mr Jump World

Let's jump!

VIEW

Some classic game genres will never go out of fashion. Mr Jump World gives the platform game format a reboot for the touchscreen age: It’s a coin-collecting, death-defying thrill ride in which the eponymous Mr Jump must leap and land safely without tumbling into the ocean’s depths or landing on a spike.

Avoid all of these traps to collect the glinting gold coins—though, be warned, mistakes are swiftly punished.

This third game in the Mr Jump series is just as essential as the other two.

And while Mr Jump World looks simple, it requires finely sharpened skills. You must tap the screen at the perfect point to stay in the game, and some of the jumps will take several re-runs (and a few lives) to scale.

The more you play, the better you’ll get.

It’s a stripped-back game, and the interface is, accordingly, unfussy. Mr Jump’s world is made up of bright and bold shapes. But this will keep you focused on the task at hand—specifically, nailing those jumps.

This is a game designed to be played on the commute: fun, fast-paced and perfectly distracting.
