Join Wesley LeBlanc and Brian Shea as the two discuss Mr. Run and Jump, a new challenging platformer from developers Graphite Lab and Heavy Horse Games that originally started out as a homebrew game for Atari 2600. Wesley’s played the opening hour of the game, and Brian completed and reviewed it for Game Informer – you can read his Mr. Run and Jump review here.
In this New Gameplay Today, we check out some of the first levels in Mr. Run and Jump as well as some late-game levels. Enjoy!
Atari, which is publishing the game, announced Mr. Run and Jump earlier this year and it’s out tomorrow, July 25. In Mr. Run and Jump, players explore the Realms of Color on an adventure to defeat Void and find the hero’s ever-missing dog, Leap. Originally created as an Atari 2600 title in 2021, Atari took notice and Graphite Lab and Heavy Horse Games developed this new modernized version (with a nod to the original in the game’s start).
