Fun but frustrating arcade game; lots of ads.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The game is intentionally hard. Players have to keep up with multiple avatars to ensure none of them run into an obstacle.
One of the difficulty ratings is called "Hell."

What’s It About?
The play mechanic in MAKE THEM JUMP is simple. Touch the screen area for each of your respective runners to make them jump and clear obstacles. But, when two runners have differently staggered obstacles, it becomes challenging to keep up. And when you have five on-screen (in the insane difficulty level), it becomes virtually impossible. You'll fail fast and often in this game.
Is It Any Good?
Make Them Jump aims to be the latest in a series of maddeningly difficult but impossible-to-quit games. And it seems to have all the core mechanics down: a split focus, simple play mechanics, and brutal difficulty. But what's lacking is the sense of Zen that the best of those games also have. Flappy Bird may have been extremely hard, but it wasn't a game that would raise your stress levels. This one does.
That has an impact on the fun you have. Instead of trying, then failing, then trying again for an hour or more at a time, you may feel you've had enough after a few tries.
