Long before Super Meat Boy made us throw the joypad at the cat, there was Jumper.
Made by Matt Thorson when he was only 16, Jumper was platform game that started easy enough, well, until 1 minute in.
Then it got crazy.
“Not my first game, but my first worth mentioning. Made with Game Maker when I was sixteen,
Jumper was a minimalization of the platformers I loved as a child down to their most basic concepts,
making them simple enough for me to emulate.
Help Ogmo escape the abandoned lab in this incredibly difficult platformer.”
The title character Ogmo also got featured in Super Meat Boy, where you could unlock him as a playable character.
If you liked “I wanna be the Guy” and “Super Meat Boy”, you might want to download Jumper trilogy for free on Matt’s homepage.
