Poor, poor Jimmy. Killed by a freak window and plunged into the depths of Limbo, Jimmy's soul has been claimed by the Sax man and must now battle his way to freedom. Features music made by me, graphics made by me and sound effects made by me. Probably not something to be proud of.

Has taken me a month to remake Jimmy's Unlikely Resurrection, hence why it is now called JUR's Unlikely Resurrection. Oh and Newgrounds doesn't support a title long enough to fit the entire name in.

Use the arrow keys to move and spacebar as an extra jump button- helps to hold down space to grab on to things and to use the keys to push yourself off.

Good luck!

I had no idea what to expect of this. It was on the Top 50, where you can't tell if it's a game or cartoon. I thought it was a great game! It was interesting because I didn't even have to know how to use the controls at first to get past the level. You have a pretty nice introduction too. I just love the little sounds.

It's kind of weird how Jimmy drops his pants whenever he beats a level. I don't see the joke in that. It had enough details to keep it well moving. It's the first game in like forever where you can die by falling from a high distance. I guess it might make sense in Purgatory.

Alright, let me just start off by saying one thing: There is nothing memorable about this game at all.

For one thing, the story doesn't make any sense, and it confuses the player more than anything. How can you be killed by a window? Somehow that fails to make sense to me. Also at the beginning of the game, you take it that this will be a fairly serious game, but in reality everything seems to be kind of silly. For example, the villain is a saxophone-playing colossal? When you reach the end of a stage, you pull your pants down? I was confused what was going on. Is this game supposed to be funny? Because you definitely didn't put me in the right mindset for it, and because of that nothing in this game was humorous at all, but rather just annoying.

You did a fairly good job with the music, but I can tell when it loops. That's a problem that you might want to fix.

The controls can be fairly confusing when wall jumping and gripping onto the walls. Also, the difficult hop from level one to level two is far too extreme.

I could say more about this game, but there's nothing worth saying. I would channel most of my effort into creating a reasonable story next time. I can't tell whether you put effort into this game or not. The animation is pretty smooth, and the music is good, but I just don't see how you could have failed that hard with a story if you actually put in the effort.

Well, thanks for the detailed review, even if it wasn't too favourable. From what I've gathered there's nothing too wrong with the game, your main gripe is with the story and that it was possibly too difficult because you didn't try it for long. Which is fair enough as well. I assume you're American since we British have a more bizarre and eccentric sense of humour in general. It is possible to be killed by a window (defenestration- Jimmy died in the first place because we loved that word and had to include it in the previous game where he died. Kind of unfair to rate this game down because you can't imagine it happening!) and who's to say what happens after you die? Why can't there be a heavenly sax man forcing you through portal-style traps again and again? Where's your imagination?!?!

Oh and he pulls his pants down in an abstract celebration. In the final stage he pulls them down and reveals that he has finally become a man. Once again it's not something I like to say because I'd rather people would encounter it by themselves and interpret it in their own way, but you forced me to this!

Just out of interest, what would be a better story? Why does there even HAVE to be a story in an arcade-game? Annoyingly I've made more story-led games in the past and people have clicked past it to get to the action. I guess it's lose-lose in the world of flash games.

Good game, tight controls, nice challenge, good story.

But having to sit through an ad between every level kinda pissed me off. So minus points for that

4/5

These games are really good. Keep up the good work!

Thank you uagent- I saw that you completed the episodes as well! Great that you enjoy the games, I'll try making a better sequel with the feedback I've received from JUR2 some time :)

Oh and well done on beating the Sax man. That puts you in an elite 15-man group according to the high-scores!

Well...

My friend, although I understand your words when you say "Probably not something to be proud of", I can't see why you would have to say them. If this is something you aren't sure if you should be proud of please let us see something you are because this was very well done. The game was tricky but not un-doable. The graphics and gameplay were clear and straightforward. The story was an interesting take on death/purgatory/limbo and you stuck with it. My only issue was that there didn't seem to be a pause button and pressing escape gave the sad result of forcing you to completely restart the chapter (on the last chapter where this happened to me it kind of sucked. Now I have not finished the game, I had to do other things, but I wanted to review it first. I will be back to finish it. Again excellent game. Great job. Keep up the great work and when you do good work it is ok to take a bit of pride in it.

5s all around.
