Jack B. Nimble soundtrack is now available!
Again, many thanks for your support so far, and please spread the word :)

Release date: 2018
"Canabalt meets Castlevania on the Game Boy"

Jump in the shoes of Jack B. Nimble and master the whip in this cute, retro auto runner.

Leap and dash across spooky hilltops, gothic cityscapes, dank dungeons and more! Whip candles to multiply your score, and use your environment to slow down and stay in control of the action; but watch out for obstacles that block your path! With a score system based on player accuracy and distance travelled, timing and skill are key to achieving a position atop the leaderboard. Are you nimble enough?

  • High speed side-scrolling action
  • Authentic retro Game Boy era visuals
  • Accessible single input control scheme - just jump and whip!
  • 8 characters to choose from
  • 6 endless, increasingly difficult levels to master
  • Thumping chip tune soundtrack by Barry "Epoch" Topping

Soundtrack out now!

@volnes, I can certainly investigate a Linux port if there is demand :)

I've been playing Jack B. Nimble on my phone since it was two characters and three maps. As a lifelong Castlevania fan, Jack B. Nimble is the Belmont-inspired infinite runner I'd choose - especially now that there are so many more characters and maps to choose from. :steamhappy:

Been following your posts on Gaf, hope this gets Greenlit man! I do not have an iPhone, so this would be the only way for me to play it. Good luck!

Looks like a fun game for quick plays. I really don't understand people who want to dismiss games like this as "should be only on mobile", why? I like some simple fun between "bigger" games.

However, I cannot help but feel the talent spent on those GB-style graphics is a bit wasted on such a "simple" game and would deserve to be used for some more ambitious project.
