Updated 15th December, 12:06 PM: Right on schedule, Jump or Stay is now available for you to download free-to-play on iOS.

The concept is super simple - if the spike is the same colour as the platform you need to jump, if the spike is a different colour to the platform you need to stay. Simple - but actually really hard.

Try and see how far you can go before suffering an attack from the devious trigger-finger. Grab the game free-to-play on the App Store now.


It's time to move on from sales and introduce you to a cracking looking game coming out December 15th on iOS and Android. Get ready to play Jump or Stay.

This beautiful game was made by ColorBlind Studios and Umbrella and has one very simple goal – complete the level without dying. Jump or Stay is a reflex runner designed to look super simple but in practice it's actually quite a lot harder as you've got to remember the correct rules for the correct section.

As you could guess from the title you've got to either jump over an obstacle or stay your ground as the obstacle could rise over your head. This is determined via the colour pattern, e.g. matching colours = jump, or different colours = stay. It explains it a little better in the trailer below so take a look at that.

Jump or Stay will be available on iOS on the 15th December and judging from the company's previous release it'll probably be free-to-play, though we'll update you when we know.
