In November of last year, Ubisoft added another entry into their mobile series of Rayman games with Rayman Fiesta Run [$0.99]. Like its predecessor Rayman Jungle Run, it blended the whimsical Rayman universe with the auto-running platformer that works so well on touchscreens, but took things a step further by making complex levels that required pinpoint precision and reflexes in order to succeed in. It really was a great mashup of runner and traditional platformer that we absolutely loved in our review. This week, a major update has landed for Rayman Fiesta Run, adding a new Candy-themed world with 16 new levels and a brand new boss encounter. In addition, a new Nightmare Mode will truly test the hardcore as you try to make your way through 36 straight levels in one run without dying.

If you somehow haven't played either Rayman Jungle Run or Rayman Fiesta Run on iOS yet, you're really missing out. While I'm still hoping that Ubisoft brings ports of the full Rayman console games to iOS, they've really accomplished something special with these games by mixing together traditional platforming with something that has already proven to work well on touchscreens. Definitely check out either or both, and if you're already a Rayman Fiesta Run fan then be sure to grab the latest update and give the new levels and Nightmare Mode a spin.

    Redownloaded this and played up to the point where you can access the new levels (iCloud was added after I deleted it) but it wants me to spend several thousand lums to access the new levels.

    Is there another way to unlock them that I've missed?

      Specifically it's 5,000 lums. I got about 10,000 lums just by playing the normal levels and making sure I ace them (get all 100 in a level). Plus you'll get free bonus lums at certain points along the path. Just keep playing a bit, shouldn't take you long to get to 5,000.

    Yaaas!

    Is it true this game has content that you have to pay to access? Or is the amount of lums a reasonable amount? I don't like the way the previous game didn't sync between iDevices via iCloud, but still thought it was decent value

    How do you access the hardcore levels? I deleted the game without cloud saving, so unless I can instantly get into it, it won't be worth downloading the update.

    I recently just bought and completed this game a couple weeks ago. I have never experienced any kind of lag what so ever until the new update I'm using an air. permanent gadgets cost way to much. and the three new characters aren't worth buying. You get 2 teensy and a green rayman wow with this new update comes a huge push for players to buy IAP so be warned

  • parabola_master

    Can someone help me? I had this game installed and I wanted to play the new levels, but now I can't hover or run on walls??? Did the update delete those two actions?

      If you're starting from the beginning, you need to play through the first few levels until you unlock the abilities

    For those who are looking for a cool hardcore platformer on iOS, you can try Pixhelland!
    There is a trailer on youtube for the latest version!

    The update is great but very bugged. After a while of playing the game starts crashing frequently while makes the game virtually unplayable in the new Nightmare mode. Judging by the reviews in the App Store, virtually everybody seems to be experiencing this whether playing on iPad or iphone. Hopefully will be fixed soon
