SHUMPOfficial Waldo Score 8.5/10

8.5out of 10
Official Waldo Review

SHUMP is everything I hoped it would be. Fast-paced arcade action with a retro pixelated feel. Everything from the visuals to the music are exactly on point. Simply move left and right and jump up to each platform. Your character automatically shoots for you so it becomes a matter of just dodging obstacles. A lot happens all at once but it's easy to get a grip of the controls and make your way through the level without being too easy. The boss battles are a nice touch and the music amps me up to want to keep on playing. It's fun, it's entertaining and you should download it now.
