If you happened to miss the release of the first Jumpman, which is quite likely if you were born in the 90s and beyond, you are in luck! Developer Davis Ray Sickmon Jr has realised a long dormant dream by obtaining the rights from creator Randy Glover to develop a new entry in the series, to be named Jumpman Forever.
The original Jumpman sported some features which set it apart from other basic games of the time. Jumpman had more than a handful of levels, level specific hazards and gameplay that required some thought and tactics rather than a madcap dash from one side of the screen to the other.
Currently on Kickstarter, Jumpman Forever will hopefully bring some fresh elements to an old classic and introduce the title to a new audience.
Davis plans to make Jumpman Forever an Ouya exclusive for the first six months with plans to then make the title available on iPhone, iPad, Android, PC, and Mac.
