There are 8 jumping challenges, each with 14 varied courses of increasing difficulty. The challenge is to get the blue square through the obstacle course, and a switch press makes the square jump. If you crash, then it starts again and counts the number of attempts until you succeed.There are settings to change the speed of the activity and also the size of the jumping blue square.

Switch Jump is also potentially a useful tool for therapists and helpers to observe reaction times and progression through the activity. Switch Jump supports touch tap, keyboard input, bluetooth switch, Microsoft Adaptive Controller and XBox Controller.
