Tactical Leaping Adventure Jump King on Nintendo Switch is a platforming challenge about struggling upwards in search of the legendary Smoking Hot Babe! This lonely adventure to reach The Top will demand your full mastery of the technique of jumping. Just try to remember that with each fall there is a lesson to be learned.
This one of the most frustrating and fun games I have ever played. The mechanic starts simple. You have to jump up through a level, but if you fall you have to start again. The game will even rank you based on the jumps and falls you make.

As you jump through the game different areas can be explored. These are the most fun part of the game, as these introduce different playing mechanics. There’s a swamp level where you jump as if you were in honey. So you have to do a slower jump and plan your moves.
Though this may be frustrating, I will admit there is no better feeling than completing a stage I was trying to complete for 45 mins. I have almost thrown my Switch across the room a couple of times. I have uninstalled it 3 times vowing never to play again, but it always gets reinstalled again.
They went with retro graphics, as this feels like an old school platformer. As you jump up the next set of platforms are revealed to you. They are clear and pop on the backdrop of the level. Each level has an individual look and colour pallet.
The jumping mechanic is based on how long you press on the jump button. A short press will do a little jump while holding it down will release the high jump. But there is no gauge on how much power you are using. It’d be good to have some indicator to know how much power you use in each jump. The main story took me around 11 hours to complete the full story. There are around 48 achievements, which can take around 40 hours to grab.
Overall, I think Jump King on the Nintendo Switch is both the worst and best game you can spend your time on. It’s fun, addictive and frustrating. Finally, check out Jabba Reviews. Also, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
