Collect all the trinkets!
Jumpman Lives! is a shareware sidescroller action game/adventure, which is all about collecting trinkets and keys and avoiding monsters. Here and there you are going to be afforded a few other weapons, but, for the most part, you are going to want to stay away from the baddies. A lot of the gameplay is based around finding a way to stay away from the baddies, and when that is done, you are going to find that you have succeeded in finding a way out of the level. You can take the opportunity to either go out as fast as you can, yet you can also choose to stick around for a little longer, and collect all the extra trinkets. Either way, the game looks very simple, with but 2 or three colors displayed at a time, very jagged, and it will remind you of these very colorful construction sets, as the levels look as if they are made of those tiles. Other than that, each level brings new baddies, a different one screen maze, with its own obstacles, and, you're going to have to take each one independently, and try to find the best way to solve it. A good alternative can be Bio Menace 2
, similarly produced yet with larger individual levels and a more combat oriented sidescrolling.
