Concept

Jump Man was heavily inspired by Mario, Donkey Kong, and many other platform games. The mechanics of Jumpman can be found in many other different platforming games such as Moving platforms Spike floors and Extending platforms.I also wanted to look and the atmosphere of Jumpman to be similar to many of the platform games I played growing up

Level Sketches

The idea for the rough sketches was it teaches the player about the many mechanics that he would face along the way. Also teaching the player the basic mechanics such as double jumping running and slowing down is also important These rough sketches are just the basic ideas of some of the levels and mechanics that were used in the game 

Level Blockout

Blockout allowed me to create spaces that let me imagine how the real game would be. Yeah deal with them just to get the main focus of gameplay and add the real assets later this allowed me to try out different gameplay metallics while also changing certain variables about them
