If you have a Nintendo Switch and a pair of Joy-Cons, Nintendo has a free game for you. Say hello to the Jump Rope Challenge. Also, this game can get you a quick at-home workout if you could not get your hands on the Ring Fit Adventure that sells out in seconds every time.

Jump Rope Challenge is not as full featured as the Ring Fit Adventure, but it does make you ‘work’ with whatever accessories you already have. The game emulates the jump rope experience using the Joy-Cons as you count your jumps on the screen. 

There is also dual player support. Nintendo says that this game was created by a small group of Nintendo developers while working from home in Japan.

The game also supports those with mobility issues, also if your neighbours downstairs who do not appreciate all the jumping around. You can play Jump Rope Challenge just by bending your knees or by moving your arms to play silently.

And it’s free. But for a limited amount of time, that’s till the end of September. You can get the game on the eShop.
