When Ubisoft and Pastagames hooked up last year to make a mobile iteration of the hit console platformer Rayman Origins, they really hit the nail on the head. Rayman Jungle Run ($2.99) distilled the fun of the full-blown title into a mobile-friendly auto-runner with brilliantly designed levels and a simple two-button touchscreen control scheme.
The Rayman Jungle Run experience was extended this past December with a batch of new levels, and today an even bigger update has been released which adds even more new levels to the mix. Two new worlds – one pirate themed and one, err, weird plant-themed – each add ten new levels of running, jumping, punching, hair-as-a-helicopter floating, and more. Update: here’s a trailer of the new stuff:
So if you’ve been enjoying Rayman Jungle Run on your device for the past half a year or so, and have beaten all the goals to death, time to dust off that app icon and give these twenty new levels a go. There really isn’t a better example than Rayman Jungle Run of cramming all the presentation and personality of a hit console game into a mobile package.
