Description

Color Jumper is an abstract, color-based puzzle platformer which focuses on fast, precise movement to navigate your surroundings. Inspired by hardcore platformers like Super Meat Boy, Downwell, VVVVVV, and many others, your goal in Color Jumper is to reach the exit. You control a block with a different color on each side. Colored platforms are only solid when in contact with the connecting color of your block. Each jump rotates your block, creating a world where each jump must be planned carefully, turning levels into a twisting high-speed parkour race to the finish.

History

Development of Color Jumper started in late 2015 and has been the main focus for Tallbeard Studios throughout most of 2016. Being this studio's first major game, there have been a lot of hurdles (technical and otherwise) to overcome. In the end, it has made Color Jumper a far better game because of it.
