You have one simple aim, reach for the stars. You start the nine level game at the bottom of the screen, and as the name suggests, you have to jump to the top of the screen. The platform above you is moving, so you have to wait for a gap in the platform until you have your opportunity to jump on to it. Once you're on to the first moving platform things get more tricky, as the gaps that you are looking to jump through also become gaps that you can fall through. If you successfully avoid falling through the gaps, and manage to jump Jake up through the eight platforms, then you will progress to the next level. Each level introduces a new bad guy trying to stop Jake from reaching his end goal. Now you're not just avoiding the gaps, but the bad guys as well. Patience, timing, and experience are all required to succeed at this challenging platform game.
