Baltimore, MD – January 19th, 2021 - Independent games publisher Versus Evil in partnership with Yokereba Games today announced that action puzzler Jumpala is now available on Steam for PC. Jumpala is a fast-paced competitive game that's all about superpowers, sabotage, and stage control. Lightning-fast reflexes and some keen strategy will be the order of the day as players look to stay one step ahead of their opponent.


Players will choose between 7 characters each with unique abilities as they race to the top of the stage and platforms plummet from beneath their feet. Players turn the platforms their color as they land them, claiming them and earning points for each claimed platform that falls off the stage. Players must vie for control for the platforms and achieve the highest score at the end of each match. A Special meter allows players to activate their character's special moves, allowing them to drop bombs, freeze opponents in place, and more. Power-ups drop throughout the matches, turning each match into a nail-biter.


Jumpala’s got an addictive formula that mixes fast, competitive gameplay inspired by fighting games and platform puzzle games. Gamers looking for a new party title won’t be disappointed” Said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil.


While the core mechanics might sound simple enough to learn, it will take plenty of skill to master as players compete to reach the top and take control. Lightning fast reflexes, perfect timing and cunningly planned out moves keeps the action going at a constant pace. Each game is a test of skill and strategy as players try to outscore and outlive their opponents as they look to snatch victory.


The game is available to buy for $9.99USD with a 10% limited time launch window discount.
