    Did anyone play that game on a PC like 15ish years ago? I loved that game. You were a little stick figure and you had to jump around a 2D board. I think you were some kind of janitor or something. I remember having it on one of those 5 inch-ish floppy discs.

    You brought me out of the woodwork

    To say that, yep, I played that game. And yep, I thought it was great.

    I tried out Jumpman Zero for my PC a couple years ago, and it brought back some of those memories.

    There is also info about the game here (including downloads of the original, though I haven't tried any so I can't say if they work or not), for those of you who would like to find out what we're reminiscing about.

    Jumpman Jr. was one of my favorite games on my Atari800xl. I'm guessing Jumpman Joe was the original? I don't remember playing that one.

    I'd love to play that game again it was so much fun. As soon as I get a flash cart for my Nintendo DS I'm going to look into playing it.

    What's interesting is Jumpman was Mario's name in the first Donkey Kong game, but the 2 games aren't related. This game always reminds me of Hard Hat Mac, which was another game I would play to death at the time.

    Ditto that, except I played it on my cousin's Colecovision (I don't think it ever came out for Intellivision, which is what I had).

    I played it on my PC with an emulator quite a bit at an old job, after I gave two weeks notice (well, ok, I played it before I gave notice, too:D )
