Jump! (GML)

Jump! (GML)

“Jump!” is a single-button game in the vein of notoriously difficult-yet-repayable games such as “Flappy Bird”. The game works on Windows, Mac OS and via HTML5 browser, the latter of which is available here: http://www.davewjames.com/jump

The aim is to jump to as many platforms as possible. The player sets the angle and strength of their jump with a simple button press, initiating a “golf swing” mechanic.

“Jump!” was created to work on a multitude of devices, including the Staffordshire University Information Point Kiosks, which I am responsible for developing and maintaining. These kiosks are primarily used to provide quick-access information to students; however, I wished to incorporate more interactivity and increase engagement with the kiosks, and felt that small “mini-games” may encourage students to engage with the kiosks, especially during Open Days and Welcome Week events.

It’s not the fall that’s the problem, it’s the landing
