Jumper: Redux is a remake of the original Jumper with many new features.

Features:
Completely Rewritten Engine: The game is roughly 132 times smoother now, and alot of bugs from the original are fixed. It's in GM6 now too.
Upgraded Presentation: Completely redone graphics, new music (some remixed, some original, but all custom-made), and even new sound effects. I've also added a particle system and redid the cutscenes.
Advanced Results: Beat the game (or finish a multiplayer match) and you'll get a very advanced results page complete with 4 graphs tracking your deaths and jumps throughout the game. It also gives you a rank from 1-10 (with a title for each) based on your deaths in single-player.
Original Stages: All the original stages are recreated in Original mode, for you to try and beat once again.
Redux Stages: A new single player game with the same story and setting as Original mode, but all-new stage layouts.
Practice Mode: Try out any stage you've reached in Original or Redux, without the pressure of your performace affecting your death count.
Online Multiplayer: Connect by IP for 2-4 player races through either Original or Redux. Options include setting what sector to start at, which to end at, and setting respawn delay times for all players, to act as a handicap.
Tons of Secrets: Secret rooms in the lab, secret emotes in mplay, cameos, fireworks, initials, cheats in practice mode, a secret rank, and more. I literally lost count of all of them.

The amount of H Unit assistance I received on this project was phenomenal...

Bballer redid ALL the graphics except Ogmo... that's a ton of work to do as a favor! Wolverine redid Ogmo... and did an amazing job I might add. Mocha Man supplied sound effects, testing, and some online help. Simon Donkers tested and gave online help. Escapader (formerly tdgc) and Ben_Briggs provided the music (well, except one track I composed, but that's the worst one =P). And Mr Hyun did the intro! (I think that's everyone but message me if I missed you)

When I joined the H Unit I wasn't really sure if I'd regret it or not... but now I'm very glad I honored the invitation. I think it's safe to say that this game wouldn't have existed if not for the help of my fellow H Unit members, round of applause for their hard work!

Anywho, I hope you enjoy playing the game as much as I did working on it. Please leave comments and constructive criticism.

whoa, online jumper, I would play but my norton internet security always blocks me from playing online games like this, and my parents won't let me turn it off, cause last time I did a bunch of viruses came. So, that sucks..:lol: but i'll just play the other stuff. :GM5:

hmm, you should make it so that you can play on the same computer too and not just online so if you have some friends over you can play jumper at your house. :o

Just so you guys know, Lord_Tomahawk (creator of the Jumper Community) totally destroyed me in a match while we were testing =P It was only a race through sectors 1 and 2 of original, with both of us having 3 second respawn delays, but he still showed me up good.

well, you can always change it. Make it so it's just that you race in one level, and not in a set of levels (i think that's how it is). and well, about the online multiplayer, i figured out how to make it so that i could play the multiplayer, but the only way i could play is by giving someone my Ip address...which i don't wanna do. :lol:

edit: i started playing the game and at one level, i jumped on a falling platform, then when i jumped off and tried double jumping it wouldn't let me so I fell and died. Then i tried again, still didn't work. Then I tried again and it worked... :o im confused, something must be wrong with the falling blocks. :GM5:

Well, I don't wanna restart jumper after all the pain and sufferin I had from sector 7-3. But the Redux levels are a nice edition. The newly added levels aren't as good as the original but still fun. I was gonna try to finish the game, but the game froze and my savefile got corrupted :GM5:

I kinda miss the old ones.

Multiplayer is great! Did you use the in-built functions or GMsock?

Music can get slightly annoying, specially sector 2. But atleast you got out those annoying midi hiccups.

Meh. I got all my points across. :o

GameMakerKid: It's a remake of Jumper 1. There's no wall jump or skid jump.

MattCreations: If either of you has a router it likely won't work.

EDIT: GizmoKidNeo: F3 mutes music. And I actually like the Redux stages better (I find them harder) than the original ones, but to each his own I guess. I used the built-in functions (would've given credit if I'd used GMSock). Your game freezing error is really wierd... must be GM6-related.

I love it! As I have a router and I don't know what port this uses (if it uses GMSock or any Winsock DLLs at all), I tried the multiplayer by opening it twice on my own computer. It worked well, except that opening it twice caused it to go down to 5 fps.... LOL :o ! Good job! This will show all those people who complained that Jumper had bad graphics. I LOVE the new ones! Good job YMM, and great job all of H-Unit :lol: !

Well, Id have to say nice job, but a couple of the intro graphics look a little blurry.

Anyways, wall jump would have really been helpful, and I see that there is no friction invlolved.

But all the same, great graphics and improvement but I wouldnt dedicate as much time to this as to Jumper 2.

The first few times that I ran the game, I got an unexpected error at startup. I shut down a few programs and my Internet connection and it ran but lagged.

So I ran End It All (a very helpful program, btw) to shut down most of the programs runing in the background and it made a GREAT improvement in the speed.

I recommend that if this (or any other game) lags regularly, or if you are low on RAM, you should download and run End It All.


YMM, I will write a review later, but for now everything looks great so far! (I just wanted to point out the above program as the game was laggy for me as well and it helped).

I love this game! It's awesome, 'specially how it gives you tips every now and then (like Unreal Tournament does when it's loading).
Bit of a challenge too, so it's good how you don't run out of lives or anything.

I'm gonna keep playing now...

I'm now trying to discover all secrets and easter-eggs. The secret rooms I have already found. Now for the cameos :GM5:

Nice, great improvements
toobad i'm behind a router, i think.

But,... the graphics, they are improved, but, i can see, with some of the graphics
mostly the spikes and some lightning, that u used smooth edges, possible, because they are causing white stripes to appear at the edges of the sprite
Too bad, but for the rest it's super :GM5:

In one word: WOW!
As soon as I saw "YoMamasMama" in the game maker creations, I lifted up and downloaded it.
I love how the menu is did.
I love the new graphics.
I love the new sound effects.
I don't love the new music, it's moderate (sorry Ben Briggs and Escapader). Not bad either. The menu theme is lovely though.

Another great game to add to my jumper collection. Got them all now!

i disliked the original jumper(i never played jumper 2) because it was too difficult(it required more concentration and patience I had at the moment), however now that redux is out I think i'll try it again... I'll reply l8r with a review(hopefully i'll remember to do so).
