Jables's Adventure
Jason BoyerPlatformer24.9 MBClick here to download

Jables's Adventure is a 2D platformer that took JaJitsu (developer of Cat Poke) over a year to make, although there's only about an hour's worth of gameplay in it even after taking the sparsity of checkpoints into consideration. The story is about a boy named Jables who one day wakes up with a squid on his head, and sets out to do heroic things after being advised to do so by the talking cephalopod.

Drinking from a bottle of juice restores his health, collecting a fruit increases his maximum hit points, and slapping the palm of the character who wears a striped beanie saves the game.

Jackie and the Beanstalk
DrPetter, Tomas PetterssonPlatformer1.24 MBClick here to download

Jackie and the Beanstalk is another Ludum Dare competition entry by DrPetter, created in less than twenty-four hours. One gameplay element that immediately stands out is the grappling hook, which can be used to hoist your character onto any platform she desires.

Play the role of Jackie as she tries to stay above the water by climbing up a strange plant. Flying creatures will attempt to thwart her efforts, although you can feed them candy until they burst courtesy of your own limitless supply.

Note that the game does not have an end or any sort of level progression.

dessgeegaAction/Arcade8.98 MBClick here to download

Jaywalker: Take Back the Streets is the sequel to dessgeega's original release, featuring updated graphics and a new soundtrack to accompany your bloodthirsty quest for revenge.

Gameplay is essentially the same. Jump in front of a car to make it swerve, hopefully causing it to crash into another object for major points. Chain car crashes to score a multiplier bonus. Hummers and vehicles with spoilers will not attempt to avoid a collision with the protagonist.

Jeluvian Project, The

The Jeluvian Project is primarily an action game, but you need to implement some strategy and tactics. You will have to decide which path your squad will take, which enemies you will attack, when to cease fire and when to open fire.

It uses the familiar RTS controls, where you command your drones with the mouse. But at the same time, you get to make immediate decisions for them - you will have to aim, shoot, and reload. You take control of the action, not merely the strategics: More like being a Sergeant of a squad, rather than a General of an entire army.

GamePure's Jet Dunk is a generic BreakOut clone with one or two new twists.

Dunking will increase time, while losing a ball causes the time indicator to decrease.
