The Jump Yard (Dreams) Review

Posted: 5 months ago.

Author: Andrea Walney and @GeekDadGamer.

OverviewOverview

The Jump Yard is a platform puzzle game. You control a stickman that you can fire into the air at different angles. The aim is to land them on their feet on one of the 55 spots within the junkyard. A simple, but unique premise that is much harder than it looks.

The gameplay is similar to that of a mini golf game. You control the direction the stick man will be fired in with the right stick, hold the X button until you get the required strength, then let go to fire. You can also spin him with the left stick. The stick man can hit any of the objects on the screen, but he must land on his feet in a unique spot that you haven't already claimed to score.

A game you can dip into over time as it saves your progress as you play. Try to collect all 55. Compete with friends to see who can finished first or with the least amount of jumps. There is also The Jump Yard Lvl 2 available as a separate Dream game.
