I was just trolling around the various portals this morning and I came across an absolutely fantastic retro Flash game called Jump. I have looked around and I can’t actually find the real authors name, so I cannot give true credit where it is due. On the game it says 7 Seas Technologies (with no real link) and it is also sponsored by Onlinerealgames and NeoDelight.
In any case, what makes it so awesome is the simplicity coupled with an outright slam dunk, home run, free kick to the corner netting understanding of what made early 8-bit games so great – Playability over visuals. Although this game has visuals in spades, they very simple but pleasing and effective.
I would be adding this to our arcade, but I can’t find an author to ask or any share and embed information. Check it out for yourself and see what I mean. This is EXACTLY the type of games that we plan to build this year.
