Use your super J-J-Jump powers to escape the flood in this teeny icon adventure.
Use the KEYBOARD to jump (UP/W) to avoid getting caught in the water!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Fun game, simple, challenging, but the frequent checkpoints and lack of penalty for death kept it from being frustrating. the pixel quality of it was a little hard to get used to, but didn't really impact on playability. Good stuff. Would play again.

I must say, I'm loving this new type of game you're making, with 8-bit graphics, catchy chiptune music, and simple (minimalist, really) controls with no tutorials. The system for limiting jumps was simply brilliant, and the controls were so tight that, even when the same obstacles killed me a dozen times in a row, I never felt like I received a death I didn't deserve. As with all your games, the difficulty near the end walked that razor-thin line between intense and flat-out painful, but that just made every checkpoint I reached feel like an actual achievement, and by the time I beat the game, my hands were shaking and I felt AWESOME. Keep it up, Nitrome.

All right, the presentation is nice, but it doesn't really seem playable. First, it's annoying when games don't have instructions in them, but I guess having them in the description is okay. But it still didn't help; you say to 'Jump with Up/W', which is fine, but it gets to the point where that doesn't help any more. If you're going to make a one-button game it needs to be more intuitive than this.

Such a great game. Last level last chackpoint was just too briliant, and music loved it!!

In an internet where jump-stomp platformers are released every five seconds, in an age where 8-bit retro throwback games have been around for a greater span of time than ACTUAL 8-bit games existed; for a new addition to this category to be exciting and original in the year 2013 is a glorious accomplishment.

That music. Oh that music.
