The legendary hero is back! And he's tackling the mobile platforming scene with Rayman Jungle Run. Selling for a little less than tree fiddy, will Jungle Run do justice to the Rayman series? All you have to do is read the next paragraphs to find out.
Installation is relatively fast for such a gorgeous game. It's essentially a Running game retaining the look of Rayman Origin.You'll lead our hero through a gauntlet to try and collect Lums (firefly-like creatures). The goal is to collect the maximum amount on each level by employing Rayman's various skills -- jumping, flying, wall running, and punching while avoiding death from enemies, spikes, and good old gravity to reach your goal. Perfect every level by collecting all Lums and you'll be rewarded with an additional world -- Land of the Livid Dead.
The first thing you'll notice right away is that the graphic does not disappoint. Even with art comparable to Rayman Origins, Jungle Run still provided a smooth experience. We encountered very little stuttering during our playthrough. The background music provided a captivating experience but got repetitive quite fast. Touch controls were responsive and gameplay addicting. The levels can be easy to complete but tough to master if you're going for the unlock bonus, as they require a mix of map memorization and timing. If you enjoy a wacky running platform with a dash of puzzle, you're in for a fun time.
