Super Jumpy Ball – Xbox One Review
Our Xbox One Review of Super Jumpy Ball
Over the past few days I`ve had the chance to get my hands on a fun quirky title that has been part of the Xbox Creators Program for quite a while, and that is one of Super Jumpy Ball, which is a platform puzzler. It`s been developed by CasualGames and published by CasualGames, and one that has over-time, been very well received by fans. I was looking forward to getting my hands on something that I must admit I hadn’t heard of. I`ve not paid much attention to the Xbox Creators Program, and after playing Super Jumpy Ball, I`ll be sure to pay more attention to it. It`s quite a fun and addictive title.
The aim and the concept of the game is simple. You must get the ball to the endpoint of each level whilst collecting the star on offer for that level. Sound easy? It`s not going to be that simple. You`ll need to make sure you avoid the spikes that seem to plague levels. You hit a spike and that`s the end of the level, you`ll need to restart. It`s a very simple concept, and the game is something that reminds me of something that I use to play on a school PC. I like seeing games like this, and I really use to enjoy games like this on PC, so to see it move over to console, is good. We`ve seen some games ported over to console before and not do well, but Super Jumpy Ball has such a simple and basic concept, that I don’t think it could have gone wrong. There are 40 levels to jump into and complete, and you`ll be looking to do this in the quickest time possible. The game uses a leaderboard system that takes your overall time across all 40 levels, which I think is quite a nice feature – to do via the entirety of the game, rather than individual levels.
It`s not a game that`s going to get you worrying to much about the controls, as the controls are so simple that it`ll be very easy for a child to pick up. It fits in line with the simplicity of the game, and that`s something that`s good.
There aren’t any achievements on offer in the game, so if you`re an achievement hunter then don’t be looking at this because there is not any on offer. Not that that is a bad thing at all.
Super Jumpy Ball is a game that is a simple title that I`ve really enjoyed with my time I`ve had on it. It`s not a game that`s going to be a challenge, and it`s a fun addictive title that`ll get you going through the levels and trying to complete. At a small price of £3.59 it`s not a game that`s going to break the budget either. Don’t expect anything in terms of long-term activity and a game that`s going to offer you anything in return for playing the game, but what it does offer you is a game that is fun, addictive, and something quite quirky that I`ve quite enjoyed.
