Jump. Offers a clean interface, difficult yet addicting gameplay, and appropriate graphics for the in-house mechanics. Jump. is a game that will be adequate entertainment for what it is: an addicting 2-dimensional minimalist title that invites the player with a clean-cut world and urges the player to continue with a quick restart. Going further, it would be easier to articulate the objective value of this game in a series of well-timed screenshots, so that is what we’re going to do.
One Small Step for Graphics
Games today come in all sorts of variants, ranging from incomplete ideas to finished projects. Lately, the trend of 8-bit and 16-bit platformers have been prominent in the market. [Enter Pixel Assassin]
One Giant Leap for Storytelling
Proclaimed by the developer as a game set in a fantasy world, Pixel Assassin is making an attempt at changing what we think about story narration and morals as a protagonist. As stated by the developer, Pixel Assassin is “. . . set in medieval fantasy world where you work for an evil God”. I believe this to be a creative change of pace for an industry that – despite many innovations – still has a lot of predictable plots with bland endings.
Although garnering a decent following, Pixel Assassin is still in progress and does not attain a release date, which may attribute to the free-flowing development style that the owner displays.
Overall, Pixel Assassin is ambiguous in its goals, however is an intriguing mobile project to look out for in the near future.

As the Social Media era takes full effect, games and ideas of all variants are able to be noticed at an astronomical rate like never before in recorded history. A game that takes full advantage of this period in society and technological advancements is none other than Wasteland Cowboy, a soon-to-come 2-dimensional platformer. At first glance, a concept
such as this may seem underwhelming with only snippets of gameplay and no release date. However, the apparent lack of detail is advantageous in complementing the mystique surrounding the upcoming title. Screenshots on the game’s Instagram are intriguing and have a great sense of knowing how to draw potential players in.
With over 8,000 followers on Instagram and (quite obviously) a growing internet presence, Wasteland Cowboy is certainly on our radar and should be a big mobile title to watch down the line.
