Platform bouncing competitive game 'Jumpala' heading to Steam soon

By - | Views: 7,650

Jumpala is a very unique take on competitive multiplayer platforming, I've had a huge amount of fun with it and now it's getting close to a Steam release.

Currently available on itch.io with full local multiplayer, AI bots and online play there's already a lot to like about it. Not just because of that though, the whole idea is quite brilliant. It's all about strategy, super-powers and trying to screw with your opponent. You jump across small platforms, turning them into your colour and when they drop off the screen as it scrolls upwards the last colour on it gets the point.

To show it off a bit, the developer created a new trailer too:

You can also see some of our own footage in the previous article.

Feature Highlight:

  • Compete against up to four of your friends in action-packed free for alls, or team up in 2v2 matches.
  • Easy to learn, tough to master. If you want to be the best, you'll have to plan your routes, practice your timing, and perfect your positioning—all while being mindful of your opponent.
  • Choose from a variety of stages, each with unique features and hazards to watch out for.
  • Each character has their own unique abilities and playstyle. From attacking your opponents to racking up points—whatever your style, there's a character for you.

I will be surprised if Jumpala isn't a hit, it has everything I would expect to reach a wide audience. It's easy to get into, has fun characters, a good design and most importantly it's really fun.

So now you can wishlist/follow on Steam for the upcoming Early Access release, or pick it up right now on itch.io.
