Description

Jumper: Redux is Matt Thorson's freeware remake of one of his earlier releases, a platform game starring a mutant creature called Ogmo, created on a secret laboratory by the army as a new weapon. The original levels are included without major modifications, only remade with slightly enhanced graphics and sounds. Two main features were added: a set of new levels aimed at expert players, with increased difficulty and without the gentle learning curve and tutorials of the previous puzzles, and a co-op multiplayer mode (TCP/IP) for three players on any of the single-player levels.

The gameplay remains the same, where Ogmo has to be guided through the many traps of the abandoned military base and escape. Progress is automatically saved when entering a new screen, with each room acting as a self-contained puzzle that must be negotiated to reach the exit and move to the next location. Ogmo is controlled with three buttons: the left and right arrow keys to move sideways and the up arrow to jump. The creature does a somersault when the jump button is pressed again while in mid-air, a vital skill used to reach high platforms. Certain rooms have helpful features like jump pads and golden arrows that help Ogmo land on top platforms. Dangerous traps, electric fields, bottomless pits and other hazardous environments kill the protagonist instantaneously, and have to be avoided to successfully exit the many rooms.
