New white-knuckle teleport-em-up JUMPGRID out now!

If you liked Boson X, then my new white-knuckle teleport-em-up JUMPGRID is for you! Check it out here!

JUMPGRID plays like a minimal speed-Pac-Man where your movement is restricted to teleporting between points on the "jump-grid". Clearing a level requires simply visiting all 9 points on the grid, but this is complicated by ever-moving cosmic hazards - touch one of these and the level instantly resets ready for you to try again (and again, and again). It's a game about training your muscle memory until you learn to dance with your fingers!

JUMPGRID received an IGF 2019 honorable mention for Excellence in Design.
