Comic Jumper
« on: 10 October, 2010, 02:54:13 PM »
Just downloaded this from Xbox Arcade and it's a hoot! You play Smiley-man, a superhero who is the star of his own comic book. However, sales of his comic begin to dwindle and it gets cancelled. Smiley-man is forced to try to claw back his popularity by guest starring in other characters comics. Hopefully these crossovers will increase his popularity enough to have his comic relaunched.

It's essentially a side scrolling beat 'em up but the humour is spot on and should appeal to us comic readers. Already I've  seen references to Sin City, Dark Knight Returns and Frazetta. Download the demo today!

Yeah it's good fun though can get a little tedious in places. I'm in Manga world at the minute and it's nuts!
