Number Jump is a VS 4 mini-game in Sonic Shuffle. It is randomly played when a player lands on an Event Space.
Two towers with Jump Panels ranging from numbers 1 to 10 will appear, and everyone starts on a panel numbered zero. Players must jump to a panel that's numbered one higher than the one they are on by pressing and the direction that the next number is located at. Staying on a panel that is moving or jumping to a number that isn't there will result in starting from the bottom again. The first player to reach the top panel will defeat Dr. Eggman and win 30 Rings.
Players must be careful, as some numbers can change. Sometimes, the starting number changes to a high number, making an easy win for players who end up having to start over. Pressing rapidly while switching direction each time can get a player to the top quickly.
||Get to the top and defeat Eggman by jumping on the numbered panels in order! (1 to 2, 2 to 3, and so on.)

||If you try to jump to a number that's not shown, or if the tower turns a panel while you're standing on it, you'll fall!
