Jumping Games

Fun Is Only a Hop, Skip and a Jump Away

This is the jumping off point for a collection of classic-style online jumping games.

Frogger, with its old-school animation, has a simple but addicting premise: help the frog avoid obstacles and get to the other side of the river. The same goes for Dropple: not only the name of the game but also of the main character, Dropple gets tired of his day job and jumps at the chance to make some quick cash. While the animation in Starbound won't having you thinking of classic Pac-Man, the premise remains straightforward, fun, and addicting: land the star on the falling platforms and get as high as you can. 

If you are looking for jumping games that are more offbeat, it's not a quantum leap to suggest the following games will have you jumping for joy: In Cow Tower, the bovines do so much jumping they must give non-fat milk, while Irritable Bowel Psycho harnesses the power of poo to save your damsel in distress. Then there is Gangnam Style Dance, where you must master PSY's tricky Gangnam-style shuffle to win. In Los Angeles Shark, a very hungry shark is ready to take a huge bite out of LA and you have to stop it before the feeding frenzy begins.

Of course no jumping games collection would be complete without horse-jumping games. In Penny's Courageous Ride you must help Felicity guide her horse Penny to the rescue of her friend Ben! Horsing around is off-limits for an eager equestrian in Jumporama. And then there is the aptly named Horse Jumping, which is just exactly what the title promises.

All these games and more are just a hop, skip, and a jump away, so get playing now!
