Job the Leprechaun is a minimalist 2D platformer available on Nintendo Switch for only $2.99. The main goal for each of the game’s stages will be to collect all of the clovers within the time limit so that you can move on to the next level. It’s a very easy to understand platformer with a colorful presentation and a budget price. It’s a retro-style 2D platformer with some speedrunning in mind. The gameplay is simple since you will be moving your character with the D-pad or the left analog stick, jumping to avoid hazards and enemies.
Levels start easy, but the difficulty will ramp up as you progress in the game, requiring precise jumping to avoid all of the enemies as you try to reach the exit. Job has a hat it can use to attack enemies, but it can also be used to destroy some of the brick walls in your path – these are very easy to spot since they’re presented in a darker hue. Once you have collected all the clovers in a level, a door will appear to act as the exit that will take you to the next stage. You will need to collect clovers as fast as possible so that you can have enough time left to reach the exit before the timer reaches zero.
Most enemies can and should be avoided by running and jumping over them, unless they’re directly on your path, forcing you to use that hat of yours to defeat them to carry on with your adventure. As you explore each level, you will sometimes find an extra life here and there, as well as a special sphere that you can throw and have it roll around the floor to defeat any enemy it comes into contact with. There is also a power-up that will make you invincible for a short period of time, so be sure to make the most of it.
Job the Leprechaun is a short, colorful, and fun 2D platformer on Nintendo Switch that you can beat in an hour and change. It’s easy to get the hang of since you will only worry about running, jumping, and attacking as needed while you collect all of the clovers. It’s only three dollars and ready for you on the Nintendo Switch.
