Hey guys,

We are happy to announce today's release of Jumping Joe on the App Store! It's a diverting lil' arcade game created by Polish indie developer Power Up Game Studio and published by us.

Check it out... it's really good fun and once you've started battling your friends' for top positions in the leaderboards, you really can't put the app down anymore! My current high-score is 556, but I will beat that very soon. Lemme know how far up you made it in your best round!

Cheers & All the best,
Tobi

Fun game, very polished, it's a highscore chaser so Leaderboard addicts like myself should be very happy with this game.

Fishlabs is the publisher, they made the excellent game WarpShift last year and I am looking forward to their next game as well.

I am gonna upgrade everything first and then I go for a highscore, I bought 5000 diamonds twice just for support and to speed things up of course ha ha.

I use taps left and right instead of swipes, that works better for me.

One thing I would like in an update if that is possible to set the music and sounds apart, because I always put the music off in every game and play only with game sounds, but it's no game breaker.

Cheers, Roger. Glad to hear you're enjoying the game & thanks for your support! Getting all the skills upgraded first is a good strategy. I'm currently working towards this myself. In the test version, I had all of 'em maxed out, but now that the game's officially released, it's back to square one. My current highscore is 641, but I really wanna breach beyond 1000 over the weekend. It's gonna be tough...

Also, taps is by far my preferred control scheme for Jumping Joe as well.

You should be able to do that, the options menu has 3 toggle settings, all sounds/ no music/ mute

I wonder why this game is so big on the iOS, it weighs 4 times more than the android (i play on my phone and iPad)

Wow this is a really fun game! Love the permanent upgrades and mission rewards system. The animations are super smooth; an essential for this type of quick reaction game. I'll never catch you, Roger, but at least I don't have to browse the high score list to find yours!
