Precision is all about precision platform jumping. The way jumping works in this game is interesting, though – you have no control over the jump while in mid-air. The length of your jump is determined entirely by your velocity when you leave the ground. It definitely makes it challenging to get through the game’s seven levels, but fortunately, your character leaves a trail which can be reviewed with each successive attempt.

Ok, now to the gameplay. Well I love cactus’ games, his style is always a guarantee of something more. Precision is a good experiment and I like it, I even played it for more then 10 times (i.e. I turned it on 10 times, not restarted the game), which is quite a lot for a game like this.
It is based purely on precision of your jumps, because you only have to control the velocity and jump at the right place. It is an interesting and in my opinion well-executed idea.
I think what makes this game so addictive is the trail left by your character to show where you jumped and your trajectory. It allows you to see how you can adjust your run in case you failed (which you will… a lot). I would think this is how the game got it’s name.
It’s very challenging and yet helps you to become better at the same time. The only significant flaw of this game is that it does not allow you to level select on subsequent start ups. My advice: Finish it the first time!
