Jump King !EXCLUSIVE!
Jump King is a 2019 platforming video game developed by Nexile. Jump King was released on Steam for Microsoft Windows on May 3, 2019. It was released for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One on June 9, 2020. In the game, players must ascend a vertical map and avoid falling down by making careful jumps. Multiple free expansions for the game have been released since its launch.
The player controls a king who can move by either jumping or walking, and must reach the top of an extremely tall tower to beat the game. Jumps can be charged, which affects how far the player moves each time they perform a jump. The game encourages players to experiment and features multiple routes to reach the top of the tower and beat the game. Additionally, at the top of the tower, there is a "smoking hot babe", teased through dialogue at the beginning of the game.
A new Tower, that will push your limits. Classical hard jumps, combined with new gimmicks & refined old gimmicks will come along the journey. Those will be your obstacles, while you jump your way to the top in order to achieve immortality(+).
Jump King is a platforming game where the player is trying to lead their character up through a very tall tower. Each room of the tower has a variety of small platforms that the player has to jump to in order to reach the next room. The trick is that the Jump King character isn't the easiest to control. They can be moved left or right, but the jumping requires players to hold down a button in order to "charge" a jump. If the player doesn't aim correctly, they can fall through several rooms they'd previously passed.
Why Jump King is becoming a popular viral diversion for Twitch streamers should hopefully be much more understandable. It's a torturous game where basic jumping can be tedious, and it adds all manner of obstacles including ramps, snow, and quicksand to make the basic act even more difficult. Every fall can result in the player mentally breaking due to frustration. In other words, it's exactly what Twitch viewers love to see streamers go through.
So getting the angles and pressure just right can be an absolute nightmare. More often than not you end up overshooting the platform and falling down a screen or three. And if that happens, thanks to the erratic nature of the jumping mechanics you could quite easily spend another half hour trying to get back up to where you were to start with, before falling down again. Perhaps even further than before.
Not only that but when you get higher there are more challenges that await. Slopes for example (so much anger for slopes) weather conditions such as wind and snow which affect how you can jump or what you can see.
Too much is left to chance and not enough to player skill. I guess you could call it the pure definition of insanity. But those gamers who like a cruel, twisted challenge to keep them awake at night whispering just one more jump over and over again will find a decent game and one almighty almost insurmountable challenge here.
The point of Jump King is to be an extreme test of your patience and endurance. It certainly succeeds in that. One wrong jump can send you falling back one or two screens. One incredibly wrong and supremely unlucky jump can send you careening through dozens of screens straight back to the beginning of the game. Failed jumps often land in that second category.

If you fancy torturing yourself or some friends (or are a wacky YouTuber!!11!LOL) with this hard as nails, repetitive jumping game then you may get something out of Jump King. But for those of us just looking for a fun platforming challenge, there are countless better games out there fit for the task.
Criteria for becoming one of these games usually involve a game having so simple a premise that anyone can get involved and success in the game being attributed to a combination of impeccable skill and stupendous luck. Jump King fits the mould to a tee and has already become a favourite amongst PC gamers on the basis of its easy-to-pick-up, solid-to-master gameplay. This is a platforming game which has you making a series of precise jumps onto narrow platforms, but the focus is on heading upwards, rather than left to right, as is the case in traditional examples of the genre.
Jump King is currently chief among this trendy new "Schadenfreude-Vanias" genre, Twitch viewers deriving sick pleasure from the constant setbacks these streamers experience throughout the game. Many are familiar with similar games such as Getting Over It, Pogostuck, and the early QWOP; Jump King follows suit with the promise of the "Smoking Hot Babe of legend" awaiting at the end of the hellish jumping nightmare. It is especially popular on Twitch right now due to a free new DLC, Ghost of the Babe, recently released by the game's sinister developers.
One of the most successful streamers to beat Jump King is AdmiralBulldog, who clocked in at just over 4 hours and sits at the top of the Google Sheet's rankings. This can be compared to streamers towards the bottom spent over 20 hours, such as MANvsGAME. Perhaps all of the pain and suffering that goes into beating the game is worth it, seeing that AdmiralBulldog's reaction when beating the game was that of eternal happiness.
As you can probably guess, KeatDawg's nasty machine drops him into a tub of water every time he fails. And if being dunked in a tub of water with every mistake isn't bad enough, KeatDawg is playing Jump King, a notoriously tough platformer about scaling an increasingly ludicrous tower with jumps alone.
The squares between your king and rook can not be under attack during a castling move. If one or more squares is, then the King would be passing through or crossing over check. This is not allowed.
In other words, castling king side as white would be moving your king from e1 to g1, and the rook moves from h1 to f1. If any black piece is attacking the e1, f1, or g1 squares, then castling isn't legal. Note that it doesn't matter if h1 is attacked, since the king doesn't move from, into, or through that square.
While queuing up for a game of League yesterday, Faker loaded up Jump King. The indie game created by Swedish developers Nexile has quickly become a hit on Twitch, frustrating streamers with its simple but painstakingly difficult mechanics.
Faker had a promising start, jumping higher and higher in search of the Smoking Hot Babe. But after an unfortunate mistiming, he fell. Instead of climbing back up and moving on with the challenge, though, he fell again, then again, and again, and again.
