As high as your Robbit can soar!

Today's track is World 3 from Jumping Flash!


Please note due to copyright issues I can not make this song available for you to download directly.

Jumping Flash! was one of the games released in the first year of the PSX's launch.  It was one of the first attempts to make totally 3-D platformer and it was surprising good.  While it doesn't offer a lot of depth, game-wise, it was kinda challenging and had some pretty good puzzles to solve, though it was probably overlooked because of its "kiddie" aspects making it a sleeper hit, although it did well on sales.   But enough talk about the game, let's talk about the music.

The soundtrack of the game is pretty charming and very fitting of the world in Jumping Flash! Some of the tracks can be annoying at times, but others are pretty good and enjoyable.  The track I like the most is the one from World 3, it  is a pretty simple track, yet so adorable to listen to, kinda magical too.  I played the demo for this game a lot just to hear the song over and over again.
Also the music was composed by Takeo Miratsu, who was a member of Twin Amadeus, of IIDX fame.  He pretty much made the soundtrack for the whole series.  Unfortunately, he passed away back in 2006 because of liver cancer.

So if you want to try this game and hear its wonderful soundtrack, you can get Jumping Flash! on the PSN over the PSOne Classics section.  I really suggest you to give a try, even Jamie (DarkSakura) picked it for "Classic Game of Week", so you know it's good.

If you enjoyed this song and have any comments or suggestions for future "I love that song" segments, please click the "Add new comment" link or contact us via Twitter: @olr, @Darktetsuya or me, @act_deft!

Until next time, Keep on jumpin'!
