If you like reflex-based games like Flappy Bird, you’ll definitely enjoy Jumpy Rope. Developed by Zack Banack, this fun and addicting game for iPhone and iPad features much more than similar games.
The goal of Jumpy Rope is to help your character jump rope without colliding with it. Each successful pass counts as one point in the round is over when your character makes contact with the rope.
In order to make your character jump, you have to tap the screen. This sounds easy, but the length of your tap determines how high your character jumps. This makes it fairly difficult to get into a rhythm because the rope speeds up or changes speed based on the game mode.
One of the things I really like about Jumpy Rope is that it’s nowhere near as simple and straightforward as similar games, both paid and free. One of the neat things you can do is collect coins to spend on additional characters, as well as different hats, ropes, and backgrounds. The best part about this is that you can customize the game and its characters to your liking.
My favorite part about Jumpy Rope, however, is the fact that there are tons of different game modes to check out. This includes modes like Double Dutch, Zen, random speed, and even invisible. Personally I really like this because it changes things up and I found that I didn’t get bored by doing the same thing over and over again.
Jumpy Rope features 50 different challenges for players to complete. Challenges include completing tasks such as wearing a certain hat for a game mode or achieving a particular score. I think this is great because it keeps players from becoming bored with the game and encourages them to keep playing even if it’s just a complete challenges.
When it comes to gameplay and graphics, I think Jumpy Rope is the perfect mix of visual art and challenging game mechanics. This is certainly a game you can pick up and play right away, but it’ll take a while before you really master it.
Jumpy Rope can be downloaded from the App Store for free and ads are present even during gameplay. They’re not incredibly annoying, but sometimes they’re a little distracting if you’re really focused on the game. You do have the option of disabling them via an-app purchase.
All in all, Jumpy Rope is an incredibly fun and addicting game for iPhone and iPad that I can’t recommend enough. This is especially true if you like skill games such as Doodle Jump, Flappy Bird, and others.
The primary difference between this game and the others is that there are tons of different modes to play through, as well as challenges to complete.
Jumpy Rope requires iOS 5.1.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
