New ‘Comic Jumper’ Trailer Demonstrates Full Dimensional Diversity
Arguably the most sequential art-infused game since “Comix Zone,” “Comic Jumper” has finally teased the four corners of its content. The official trailer for Twisted Pixel’s “Comic Jumper: The Adventures of Captain Smiley,” which takes hero Captain Smiley and his chest-mounted sidekick through four very different funnybook genres hit E3 this week, revealing lampooned adventure rooted in modern superheroics, sword and sorcery adventure, Silver Age sci-fi and even manga (yes, we know manga isn’t a “genre” – work with us here). So far, both the gameplay and humor seem like casual gamers’ sort of thing.
TP has been leading up to the full reveal for awhile now, having revealed portly chunks of gameplay, concept art and other teasers over the past year. Each of the game’s four worlds seem to deliver on their promise of visual and tactile diversity with gusto, although I’ll be itching to see for certain when the title becomes downloadable on the Xbox 360 Live Arcade.
