I’m sure most of you have noticed that there is no ‘jumping’ in Rearmed, at least in the traditional platformer sense. Some players have even expressed their interest in having a jumping feature implemented.

Here’s the full update list:
• Air attacks
• Edge grabs
• Roll attacks
Fixes & balancing
• Camera zoom in air
• Attacks on moving platforms
• Up Power Strike
• Various bugs
