Jump Out! The Box
In Dagdargon Games and Avalon Alliance's action puzzle physics game Jump Out! The Box, a bug that goes astray finds itself trapped in a deadly, nightmarish construction of such fiendish imagination that... oh. No. Wait. It's just a box with some rotating bottle caps, fans, spikes, and stars inside. My bad. Nevertheless, to escape, you need to guide the bug to the exit in each level by clicking and dragging on it to set its trajectory, and then releasing it to launch it forward, grabbing all the level stars you can along the way. Those bottle caps I mentioned? You'll need to know when to stop them to aim your bug true, and of course, should you have more than one bug in a level, they all need to make it out safely to win. Just be careful, since a bug can only jump while on the red caps, because of... reasons. In the grand scheme of things, Jump Out! The Box takes a familiar mechanic and presents it with a high coat of polish, though maybe not a whole lot of innovation, even with the new elements introduced throughout. The game's 20 levels are solid, both in their construction, which often requires juuust enough aiming and timing to succeed, and their lovely, sleek cartoony graphics. Jump Out! The Box is, simply put, a pleasantly tidy little game with a great presentation, and we hope future installments experiment with its mechanics even further.
