Jump Puzzles Why?

Posted on 7/18/2013 by with 4 comments


I’m sure there are a few of you out there that like jump puzzles. Well I wouldn’t say that I’m a big fan.

I try them a few time, but then I have to move on. I really can’t stand these things, puzzles are OK I like to use my brain in game, but when you make the jumps damn near impossible or its all based on luck to achieve that’s where I draw the line.

Guild Wars 2 don’t get me wrong I love it this game, but when you add these jump puzzles to the game you have just created Guild Bores! Is there a reason to finish these anyway, Yay I get a silly title for my character well worth it.

I remember a lot of early games around the SNES days had a lot of jumping puzzles and I think this was really based around what these developers had to work with, today that isn’t even an issue.

I would much rather complete missions, complete hours of mindless grinding than do jumping puzzles to unlock so achievement.

Like I said before I’ll give jump puzzles them a try or two, but I’m not spending the night trying to finish these, I have better things to do. These are good when you’re bored in game, but if you’re bored in game you might be better off taking the night off.

So today I ask you, do you like jumping puzzles?

    I’m probably very close to the way you feel about them. I’m glad that they are out there for the people that enjoy them, that said, I don’t go very far out of my way to find them/do them. That said, the Halloween Mad King’s Jumping puzzle was amazing by GW2, though I never got to finish it. Not all jumping puzzles are created equal and that one was certainly the grand daddy of them, imo.

    That was a great event I still have a lot of items from it, GW2 is one game that does the jumping puzzle better than most.

    I think it depends on the jump puzzle for me. I tried to play Super Meat Boy and I just couldn’t do it because I felt like every jump was, in reality, just a pixel hunt. On the other hand I have been playing the Kaizo rom hack for Super Mario World which is just ridiculously hard, but I find I really enjoy it because it requires having a really good knowledge of the game in addition to being challenging in a fair way.

    Some makers really don’t understand the difference between skill and pixel hunting though.

    I agree 100% I give them a try 2-3 times before I give up, but at least I try. I always go back and try again some other time.
