Color Jumper is a running and jumping game where you control a square. Each side of the square has a different colour and rotates each time you jump. To get through a level you can only use platforms that are white or match your current colour. This creates a novel puzzle and skill challenge that is intentionally difficult.

You play through a series of increasingly challenging (and ingeniously designed) levels. You will likely play each one multiple times as when you fail you start again. You can opt to see a ghost of your previous attempts as you try again to help you avoid making the same mistake twice.

Each level has a certain number of jumps that it can be completed in, a little like the Par of a golf course. So there are reasons to return and improve your score even when you have finished an area. It's a great game that offers a high-end platforming challenge like VVVVVV, Super Meat Boy or Downwell.
