Ready, Jump! is an endless, vertical scrolling platformer from developer Metawe that’s available now for both iOS and Android. You might be familiar with Metawe from their previous games Departure Dash and Departure Dash Express where you play as an airport operations manager. Needless to say, Ready, Jump! is a different prospect.
It’s a very straightforward game too, you’ll simply have to try and climb as high as you can as you leap from platform to platform until your reptilian character meets their end by falling too far. The levels themselves self-generate so you can go as far as your platforming skills will take you or until you simply get bored, whichever comes first.
In normal mode, there will be different platforms types to learn such as some that will disappear when you stay on them for too long or others that will move your character in one direction until they fall off. It won’t just be timing your jumps that will be important, there will also be flying chickens to dodge that will push you off your current platform if you don’t react quickly enough.
There will be two other game modes beyond Normal called Lava Chase and Platforms Only. Lava Chase is similar to normal mode except the screen will slowly fill with lava meaning you won’t be able to take your time planning your jumps. Platforms Only meanwhile, will also have lava that slowly fills the screen but the platforms will only be the moving variety, making it much trickier.
It’s not overly complex than, but that’s entirely the point. Ready, Jump! is intended to be one of those games that you play in short bursts when you have a few minutes to kill. Metawe also says that the reptilian character they’ve created may appear in future games.
