I guess this is offset by the occasional scarfing of the last bomb on the screen as your lifeless Jumpman tumbles towards the bottom. If he happens to hit the final bomb on his way down, the level is cleared and your life is spared. When near either edge of the screen, you can sometime trigger a bullet that hasn't floated onto the screen yet, adding strategic depth. High scores for both overall score and highest bonus score (rewarded for completing levels quickly) are recorded to disk for bragging rights or dork points, whichever you feel is more appropriate. So when you feel like spending a little time reliving your 8-bit childhood, load up Jumpman and take yet another crack at that leaderboard.

There's a reason that Jumpman has become such a beloved home computer classic from the 80's and it won't take you long to find out why that is. Sure, it's not as flashy as other games from the time period and the control can seem a bit unfair at times, but when you get past these few minor inconveniences and get to the heart of the game, you'll realize that it's got one of the most addictive qualities you'll ever come across in a classic computer title. It's safe to say that if you're a Jumpman fan, you'll find that the game is still just as much fun as it ever was. And if you've never played the game, now might be a good time to see why so many classic computer fans still hold this game in such high regard.
