Screwjumper! due out on XBLA next week

 

 

Next week’s XBLA offering is entitled Screwjumper! and as you can tell from the above video, it’s more like “falling” than really jumping. Not sure where that other half of that title works into the whole deal, either, but maybe that’s none of my business.

Featuring four singleplayer modes as well as head-to-head multiplayer, there are 20 levels for you to fall through while chaining attacks, blowing stuff up, and doing lots of red/green/blue/purple things in general. Let’s ignore the blatant XNA-ness of it and cling to the hope that it might be really fun to play, shall we? You can find out for sure on November 14th when it becomes available, and I’ll be sure to let you know if it was worth the wait.
