JumpWheel bounces into the Windows Phone Store
JumpWheel is a new multi-level, platformer styled game for your Windows Phone. You control a wheel that has to navigate through a series of platforms, gathering tokens for points.
The 3D graphics are really nice and game play has its fair share of challenges. JumpWheel has twenty levels of play and three choices of wheels with varying traction and jump ratings.
Each level progressively gets more difficult and each level can be replayed so you can try to best your previous score. JumpWheel does lack a leaderboard but does have settings to control sound/music/vibration as well as resolution levels. At full resolution, JumpWheel boasts 60 frames per second graphics. Which looks really nice.
Forward motion is automatic and jumps are controlled by tapping the screen. Your first level serves as a tutorial to guide you through the jump controls.
All in all, JumpWheel is a fun game that makes for a very nice time waster. Unfortunately, there isn't a trial version of the game with the full version currently running $.99.
You can find JumpWheel here at the Windows Phone Store.
Update: Apparently, based on our reader's experiences, there is a trial version available of JumpWheel in certain markets. I'm not seeing one here in the U.S. but it looks like Germany, India and Australia are among the Windows Phone Store markets that do indeed have a trial version.
