I agree with Jim K. Jumpman is easily in my top 5 Atari 8 bit games of all time. Considering it has some of the most primitive looking graphics, the game is insanely fun and addictive, and bares repeat playing. It also has a real sense of humor in the way the Jumpman moves and dies! Minimal looks, maximum fun!

Author Randy Glover is a genius. This game, amongst thousands for the Atari 8 bit, rises to the top '5' in my book. Incredibly addictive, and wonderful mazes to negotiate as you pick up your jewels. The move from maze to maze was challenging enough, but not so much so that you'd boot something else. Sound effects are stellar. And who knows how many levels there are??? When Jumpman takes a tumble, you'll feel his pain (ala Bill Clinton) all the way to the floor as he bounces off numerous 'thingies' on his way to loss of life. Then again, maybe he doesn't really die because he has stars over his head when he hits bottom indicating that he might simply be knocked unconscious! If you find this game anywhere, get it. Climb any ladder, jump any stream, follow any rainbow. Hmm, sounds like a theme from Sound of Music! Sorry. Great game, just great!
