A downloadable Jumper

Welcome to Jumpin' Jupiter Prelude!

In the future, the last cups of tea have have been scattered across the solar system. Our heroine, Jupiter, is on a mission to get them back at all costs!

Prelude is a Manic Miner style linear platformer that starts on Mercury, and ends on Earth - 15 levels in total!

If you enjoyed the game, the 'normal' Jumpin' Jupiter game continues from the (Space!) Moon and goes on to Pluto - another 35 levels, making a total of 50 levels of platforming action!

You can get the main Jumping' Jupiter game here!

Install instructions

Please load the game using a ZX Spectrum Emulator!

The .z80 and .sna files should work on most emulators.

If you want the full experience, you can use the .tap file and load the whole game in with flashing bars and a gradually drawn loading screen while making a cup of tea. I recommend this!

If you want the fullest of the full experience, load it up on an actual ZX Spectrum! I'd love to see people do that!
