For those into minimalistic puzzle / skill games – Give Up by jmtb02 is a huge surprise. Minimalistic because everything you need is right in front of you, you just need to see it. Besides, your goal in the game very is clear: find exit and move on to next level. The game progress indicator is in the bottom of the screen; as you can see, the game is not too big, but it’ll take some time and skills to beat it, most people however…. They just give up. Give Up is Platformer / Puzzle / Skill Game, nothing fancy about it, considering its platform but it is a good time killer and a brain teaser.
Things to know about Give Up game: first of all jump is the most important action in the game. If you can’t jump high enough to reach the destination point, try jumping twice, (second jump while in the air). Sometimes things get complicated, you just need to remember what William of Ockham said: “All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the best one.” Good luck.
