Hi there, all of you competitive platformer fans. What do you mean you’ve never heard of a competitive platformer before? Well, the development studio Yokereba hopes to change that with their upcoming title Jumpala.
In Jumpala up to four players will compete with one another by jumping on, and claiming, platforms while the screen scrolls upwards all while trying to avoid falling behind. The game will feature four different characters, all having their own unique abilities. Jumpala is inspired by an older DOS game called Spryjinx that featured the same basic platform jumping gameplay. It’ll hit Steam Early Access sometime later this year. Checkout the trailer below for a better understanding of what you can expect:
