With Jump King being the craze online right now, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg tried his hand at the game, only to hilariously struggle to even complete the first section.
Every Twitch streamer and YouTube content creator has tried their hand at the latest Jump King DLC. The frustrating 2D platformer challenges players to climb to the top of the castle to get to the “smoking hot babe at the top,” with big consequences for a single misstep.
Having watched a few people before him try it out and fail spectacularly, PewDiePie was ready to show them how it’s done. He looked confident starting out his playthrough of the Jump King DLC, even having a cheeky dig at others before him who struggled for days on end.
“Streamers are actual manchildren who are not good at games even though they play it every single day,” he said. “It’s all about trajectories — I know that’s hard for people to understand simple math and trigonometry. However, for me, it comes quite naturally.”
However, the seasoned gamer was no match for the challenging ascent, venting his anger as he struggled to even get past the easiest section of the game.

He found himself falling back down to the start more often than he found himself climbing, with the YouTube star slowly turning insane. While he managed to get into the Colossal Drain by the end of the video, he still found himself sliding back down into the forest.
It was the epitome of “one step forward, two steps back,” and every fall turned PewDiePie just that little bit angrier. “You think I’m angry, I’ve never been angry in my life,” he said before, unleashing on the tree he kept falling off. “F**k off you piece of sh*t, I hope you die.”
The YouTuber made some progress past the first section, although his struggles early on were amusing for all of his fans. He completely underestimated the difficulty of the platformer, and paid the ultimate price.
While he’s only a short way there, he’s got something to look forward to at the top — the satisfaction of completing one of the toughest games out there. Streamers before him have reacted in various ways to finishing Jump King and meeting the love of their life.
Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s looked relieved rather than excited to reach the top after after a week of heart-breaking falls, while Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo had the complete opposite reaction.
The Twitch streamer popped out of his chair after taking 29 hours to complete the Nexile platformer, although he looked mentally drained after the experience.
If PewDiePie ever gets to the end of the platformer, he might have the same reaction as Mizkif, or wallow in his sorrows like xQc. However, he will need to get a bit further than the first couple of levels if he wants to ever meet his smoking hot babe at the top.
