Video games make up one of the most lucrative fields in the entertainment industry. Artists who design these games earn an average of $1,407 per week, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These professionals can work for distribution companies that design, manufacture and release video games.

Companies such as DeRail Games launch new titles monthly. Their latest video game was created for Xbox and is titled Jump'n Bounce. It has been described as retro-classic, with skill-based gameplay.

Jump'n Bounce is now available on Xbox Live Indie Games for $1 and features 50 levels, including 10 additional Director's Cut bonuses specifically designed for the advanced gamer. This is the first title in a series of three "new retro" games featuring Hug, the bouncing emoticon.

The game uses a combination of classically inspired skill challenges and modern design. The player is a constantly bouncing ball that can perform mid-air high jumps and brick smash abilities. Each Jump'n Bounce level consists of only one screen, which gives the player the opportunity to plan their moves one level at a time.

In the style of old-fashioned arcade games, the purpose of Jump'n Bounce is to obtain high scores, time bonuses, pickups and destruct level elements.
