OverviewOverview

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.

There are no difficulty settings, although you can skip levels if you are stuck. Although you can't remap the controls you can use either the Left stick or D-pad to control movement, and any of the face buttons to control jumping.

The art style is intentionally bright and high contrast. You can turn off the ghosts that represent previous runs, if they are distracting.
