Description of Jumpman
Jumpman is one of the best "ladder" games (e.g. climb various ladders to the exit) that were hugely popular in the early 1980s. Your goal is to collect all the bombs to advance through levels, while avoiding obstacless. There are some "extras" that make Jumpman better than most ladder games, such as menacing floating balls that will hit you if you don't move fast enough. Like most similar games, Jumpman is extremely easy to get into and enjoy.
Overall, a nice little gem, although not as fun as Big Top or Lode Runner. If you like it, check out Apogee's excellent remake on this site called Jumpman Lives!, which the company marketed only briefly before a legal threat from Epyx forced them to cease distribution.

If this seems to play too slow on DOSBox, go to the CPU settings and set CPU Cycles (emulation speed) to MAX. ... Then if it plays too fast, you can adjust it down as necessary.

Played this till my fingers were literally ground to the bone. OK maybe not literally. But it was a great game in the 80's and its still better than most of the shovel ware games on the "app store".

Only got to play like 10 levels and then it ended. I remember Jumpman having 30 levels.

Had this for my Atari 800XL in the early eighties. Was one of my favorite ladder and platfomers and still remains so. One of the games when I was a kid the influenced me to get a summer job to get a disk drive so I didn't need to wait 30 minutes for the game to load. A CIB copy of this game for the C64 is one of the prize items a in my retro collection.
