The Alienators have attacked the Jupiter Command Station and are now invading the Substation. While super secret agent Jumpman labors to restore communications at the Command Station, you (as Jumpman Junior) must drive back the Alienators by defusing bombs that have been planted throughout the Substation's 12 levels. If you are not quick enough and a bomb explodes, the outpost will crumble into ruins. Speed, courage and jet boosters (which enable you to leap) are your only weapons against the alien invaders and their bombs.
In order to diffuse the bombs (which are situated on platforms), you must touch them. By going up and down ladders, ropes, and elevators, you can reach platforms that you wish to walk across. To stay alive in this game, you must avoid (or jump over or away from) electrocution traps, moving walls, bullets, and other obstacles. Bullets are shot onto the playfield by aliens who never actually appear onscreen. You should be careful not to fall too far, jump off the screen, or leap too short of the structure (platform) you are trying to reach.
Up to four alternating players can compete in Jumpman Junior, and there are eight different game speeds from which to choose. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
