    Hey everyone at Buildbox,

    I'm excited to announce that Temple Jump, the collaboration between Nexx Studio & Deadly Serious Media is now released. It just became available on App Store & Google Play on March 23rd, 2017.



    Temple Jump is a pixel art adventure sets in a lava filled temple of doom. You will encounter classic video game danger, from collapsing platforms to shooting fireballs, while trying to collect precious gems.

    Discover the rare golden wings to transition into an alternate game mode and amongst other surprises, there is also a bonus mode that is really tricky to reach.

    Temple Jump features:
    • Endless gameplay mode
    • Challenge mode with 12 levels
    • Unique in-game characters (33 unlockable)
    • Hidden bonus mode
    • 9 challenging achievements
    Gameplay Instruction: Hold down your thumb, to make your jump bigger and release, to start falling down.

    Development Sketch

    And obviously it wouldn't be interesting without some early development sketches. You can see how the game gradually went from paper to the current design and concept :)

    all the best with it looks, good,
    So after playing it, i don't see a lot of huge difference, just the name has changed from cave jumper to temple jump.
    Still like it though, its cool.

    @DeadlySeriousMedia 's Cave Jumpers was literally the game that changed my mind about pixel art... and since then, I have been a huge fan of it. The jump mechanic in this game IS the game... so well executed... when I saw this on Touch Arcade doing my Thursday morning research I had to look into whether someone was ripping off Cave Jumpers or if this was a re-release... I'm glad to see it's legit, and as long as you took the proper steps to get this in front of apple's eyes, I predict a feature...

    Hahaha it's definitely Legit. It's really pleasing to know that the game have influenced you in some way. I'm still trying to make more improvement to the game with @DeadlySeriousMedia . We'll definitely keep you guys updated here.

    Well in terms of music. As simple as it may simple, music is the trickiest part in game development. A good track can make or break a game. Imagine Color Switch with a horrible track, its a nay.

    One of the biggest mistake of this release is not making a better trailer/screenshots for the store. It probably discredited the game in some way.

    And thanks for everyone else for sharing featuring status. It's very helpful :)

    What you on about Heath? I hear music. 8-bit retro arcade, perfect match for the pixel art theme.

    Congrats on the feature @NexxStudio, I saw it this morning in "New games we love" UK Store, nailed it :)
