No jumping. Only falling.

Serious Scramblers is a fast-paced vertical platformer where you can't jump. Descend through a hazardous pit and defeat a massive monster lurking in the deep in this small but unabashedly tough game!

  • Fall your way through the super intense arcade action
  • Randomized level generation
  • Test your skills on challenging obstacles
  • Unlock new characters - each with game changing abilities
  • Get ready for the finale - MASSIVE BOSS FIGHT
  • Enjoy with some real sweet chip-tune music while playing the game

Serious Scramblers features a colorful cast of unlock-able characters, each changing the game in significant ways. Here are some examples:

Motoko - Time jumper
Like a certain innovative FPS, time only moves when Motoko moves. There is a catch however, the level scrolls a lot faster when time isn't paused - so, unless you want to get skewered by the ceiling spikes, you'll have to make each move carefully!

Silhouette - Gotta go fast
Silhouette moves at top speed at all times, so avoiding spike traps is as easy as A, B, and C! However, the trade-off is that there will be significantly lesser gold coins to collect.

Mummy - Gold Grabber
Fancy getting more coins to unlock more characters? Mummy's the one to choose. It's worth noting that Mummy is one of the slowest characters though!

I feel like I just broke my ankles 200 times.

gasp! Apply some ice! 

The game is really good, difficult at some points but fair.
Love the art, SFX, VFX, gameplay mechanics.

Hey! Thank you very much! :D

I honestly wish there was a death counter, if there is...then I am missing it. XD 

Ah damn, that was a feature I didn't think to add >_< That'd be a good one.

Thank ya!

I really loved the mechanics of this game :) 


gotta git gud

Someone managed to get the game to work on mac?

I managed most of the games from the bundle except this one

And there is no technical support you can turn to

Hello! I reckon it's got to do with file notarization. Please give me about a week to look into this issue! My apologies for the inconvenience!

Wow I did not expect an answer so quickly. Appreciate it!

I'll wait thank you.

I would love for you to comment here as soon as it is fixed so I can start playing it thanks!!

Hello! :D

I believed the issue is fixed. I've uploaded a new version of the game. Please go ahead and download this new version! If you see this error message when running the game: "Unable to find game", try creating an empty folder, drag the game inside, then run the game again. For some reason, that would work.

Thank you again for letting me know about this problem! :)


It works great and looks super fun Thank you so much!

Like a reverse doodle jump! A really fun game.  A little hard but the learning curve isn't steep; it just makes finishing a level more rewarding. That being said after a bit of time the level model gets sloggish the longer the levels become: it  doesn't feel like progression as the hardness  rarely ever amps up. I think if you were to cut the level number by half it would make for a generally more fast-paced feeling experience than it is now. Actual gameplay wise its all fun, though. Haven't gotten to the boss but I'm excited about it..

Thank you kindly! :)
