Jumpy Box is a simple game like the helicopter game or flappy bird.

I found it much more engaging than Flappy Bird. While the graphics needed work, the procedurally-generated terrain kept me interested. For the most part I felt that the computer played fair though there were a couple spots where I questioned whether it was possible to navigate. Good work! I hope you continue to work on it.

The difficulty only ramps up at about 30. Perhaps that could be sped up a bit. My high score is only 45. I will keep this game though

Thanks for the feedback, I'll be sure to update it when the voting is over (I don't think I'm allowed to make changes during the voting).

I agree, much more challenging than Flappy Bird. In fact, it took using both my thumbs to get anywhere. I hope you consider continuing w it and adding in some great graphics!

Pretty cool how you made an Android game rather than one for the computer. Nice job!

Hold on bustin ma phone out. Its like flappy birds but with more graphics. Cool game. Interesting choice on making it only on the android. you should add it to windows and implement keys and stuff, then you'll get way more votes. Good Game :)

Reminds me of Poppy river, or Poppy burger.

There's no shortage of these games, but I always enjoy playing 'em. I got 56. =)

A way more relaxing interpretation of "this kind of game". I had ended up with something similar. With some music and a bit of work I could imagine this to become quite enjoyable.

Also it was nice to get to see a mobile game for a change. Thank you!

@Meral out of curiosity, since I've seen people say it's a more "relaxing" version of this type of game, would you want slower paced music?

Fun Throttlecopter clone with pixel perfect collision detection. Could use some sound and I don't see a correlation to the theme.

You have a nice little game there. If you try to put more stuff in it. like power ups, different gravity areas, you could have a great game.

Every now and then when I sit in a train or bus or just my chair at home and listen to a podcast, I will find the shortcut of Jumpy Box on my phone and give it a go for a round or two.

So thank you!

Very fun but the graphics need work!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
