Los Angeles, California - Independent developer Nexx Studio today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Temple Jump 1.0, their challenging retro-look game for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices. Temple Jump is set in a lava-filled temple of doom, where players must jump from platform to collapsing platform collecting precious gems, all the while avoiding killer fireballs and pointy spikes. Miss a jump, and it's back to the start to try again.
Players can relive the pixelated pleasures of the classic arcade years by simply holding their finger down and then lifting it at exactly the right time to jump from one precarious spot to the next. Time the jump just right, and don't jump too far, or it's time to start all over! Timing and finesse is everything.
"I have always loved the classic video games from the 80s and the 90s. Many was a time I would spend my last quarter playing 'just one more' game of the latest pixel-pusher to appear at my corner video arcade," shares indie developer Kenneth Wong, creator of Temple Jump. "When I developed Temple Jump, I wanted to offer today's mobile device owners a classic challenge that would look deceivingly simple, but would prove to be an increasingly devilish challenge!"

* Challenge mode with 12 perilous levels

Players will find themselves navigating unsteady platforms that can literally collapse right out from under them. Challengers who dare to face the game's tricky layout will be faced with moving platforms, lava pools of death, and killer fireballs. Gamers who make it through the game's 12 challenging levels can then leap their way into an endless game mode.
While players are jumping their way through each challenging level, they'll want to keep their eyes peeled for the set of rare golden wings that allow them to transition into an alternate gaming mode where they'll tap and flap their way past deadly obstacles. Only the best players will reach this tricky bonus mode, which will prove to be a challenge to any gamer's mettle.
In addition to the original temple jumper, players can unlock 32 additional characters that are sure to make them smile as they ever move forward through the game. (One character's hair looks suspiciously like that of the current leader of a well-known country.)
"While the gameplay of Temple Jump may at first seem a bit familiar to some gamers, they soon discover the game offers up so much more," continues Kenneth. " It's not just tap and jump! Players will be required to get the timing of their moves down to the split second, while at the same time jumping just the right distance to avoid falling to their doom, or being struck by one of the game's other perilous pitfalls!"
Game Center integration means players can challenge their friends around the world to beat their score. Or you can challenge anyone in the world via Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks, all via Temple Jump's convenient social network feature.
While the most skilled players will likely be able to play their way through the game, unlocking all 33 characters as they go forward, those in need of a bit of help will be glad to know they can buy in-game currency that can be used to help unlock the characters. A convenient in-app purchase is also available to remove the in-game ads.
Gamers will find classic gaming pleasure is literally just a hop and a jump away when they play Temple Jump. But watch out for the fireballs and spikes. They can take the air out of even the best jump.
