''Jumpman Lives!'' is an unauthorized 1991 MS-DOS remake of ''VideoGame/{{Jumpman}}''. The remake closely emulates the original in its gameplay and in the graphical appearance of the multi-platform levels in which the player character walks, jumps, and climbs ladders and ropes to clear each level of bombs and avoid lethal hazards such as bullets. Both the original and the remake share the same basic plot: a multi-level orbital science station needs to be cleared of bombs planted by a radical group. In the original game the station orbits the planet Jupiter, but in the remake it is in orbit around Saturn. Included in the remake are levels from the original game, a sequel entitled ''Jumpman Jr.'' (also published by Epyx) and some newly created ones. Other enhancements in the remake include a level editor, Sound Blaster support, and three skill levels.

Permission to create this remake had not been obtained from Epyx, the holder of the ''Jumpman'' copyright at the time. When Epyx learned of its existence, the company asked Apogee to discontinue it. Thus ''Jumpman Lives!'' was commercially available for only a few months following its release. Apogee no longer retains any control over or copyright in this title.
