Just Pogo is a jumping game you control with one button. You are a man on a pogo stick and must get to the exit in each of the 18 levels. The quirk of the challenge is that you not only control the game with one button, but that button rotates your character, rather than making them jump. The result is a surprisingly complex physics-based platform puzzle that requires ingenuity and skill to complete.

"Might classify as a rage game," the developer states. This is true, although it's as much a game about patience and the ability to persevere. Because your pogo character is an uneven shape you can make contact with the floor and walls to propel yourself at different angles.

The result is a game that's simple to play and great fun to compete against each other in the family.
