Needs a sequel too...maybe on VR! But perhaps all the jumping might nausea city lol

Did anyone ever play this or the original game? I feel like they were such a big deal during the PS1 era but the franchise seemed to die out and never get spoken about again after the PS2 came out? It's an amazing game that mixes solid platforming with some FPS sections, and its charm is off the charts.

LMK what you guys think of the game? I'd love to hear if anyone else remembers this as fondly as I do?

Always loved these games, really thought they nailed 3D platforming early on by going with the first-person approach while so many other games flubbed it completely. I'm also kind of surprised there aren't more modern takes on the genre out there.

Honestly Doom 2016 reminds me of Jumping Flash. Well minus the demons and bullets lol

Super vertical FPS style gameplay

Didn't know there was a 2nd one. I've played the first one a bit, it's fun. Really, really easy though.
Remarkably good for a 3D platformer, and it makes a lot of good decisions. I'm with it290 on this, I'm surprised more games didn't take inspiration from how it plays and handles.

I do have both Jumping Flash and it's proper sequel. What's interesting about the PSX game of Ghost In The Shell is, it runs on a modified Jumping Flash engine but with slick GiTS FMV cut scenes inserted in between stages. A PSVR/HD remaster remake of Jumping Flash/Jumping Flash 2 would be ace considering that SCEI owns the IP on both of those particular gaming titles anyways.

PC Engine Fan X! ^_~

There's a third one: "Robbit Mon Dieu!" but they say it's crap.

If you like JF, be sure to play Geograph Seal on X68000 as well.
