It's hard to be 2D in a 3D world, which you'll soon find out if you play Jumping Line, an austere little platformer from Henning Steinbock. But don't let the minimalist atmosphere lull you into a false sense of security, because you'll need to do all your best wrist exercises from that mandatory carpal tunnel workshop your boss made you attend last spring if you're going to be limber enough to keep this line on track to ultimate victory.
Just move your mouse cursor (no keyboard required!) to direct your line up and down the paths of this perilous faux-3D landscape and keep an eye out for little black pads scattered about, they'll save your progress and keep you from going all the way back to the beginning. Oh, and you might want to go to your local ophthalmologist and check that your depth perception is up to speck, because if it isn't you'll find yourself jumping on platforms that aren't quite there.
Keep all this in mind and you'll find that Jumping Line is a great example of a simple idea done well that will appeal to all the oldschool gamers out there who don't need a lot of bells and whistles to have a good time and break a satisfying gamer sweat.
Thanks to Itt and Fahad for sending this one in! :)
