    Hi Jump has just been released! Hi Jump redefines the meaning of jumping games. No more tilting – control the ball by drawing lines on the screen! Unlock levels, beat records and have fun in this very challenging jumping game!

    ** Hi Jump Features **
    - 50 entertaining levels with different obstacles
    - Eye – catching graphics
    - 3 gameplay modes – Normal, Capture The Flag and Highscore
    - Great, realistic physics engine
    - Game Center Support – 27 achievements and 7 leaderboards
    - It’s free!

    ** How to play **
    In Hi Jump you need to draw lines, from which the ball may bounce. Use tilt lines to make the ball jump in different directions. You may only have two lines on a screen at a time. When you draw a third one, the first one will disappear. You have also half a second to finish your drawing, otherwise the line will be drawn by itself. The lines you draw act as normal obstacles – they move downwards with the screen.

    ** Help us reach our goal! **
    Hi Jump has a goal - 1 000 000 downloads! We cannot achieve it without you - players. If you enjoy this game, tell others about it, become a fan or facebook or do anything to spread news about this fantastic free game!

    Hi Jump hasn't been out for 24 hours and it already received really good reviews:

    Very fun and challenging
    by Jo124098
    This game is well designed. Good graphics, music and physics. It is also very challenging. Once you become familiar with the way the ball bounces it can be very fun. Levels can take lots of tries to complete. Great game, will recommend to my friends!

    great!

    Game will be soon updated with retina graphics and ipod library support (not mentioning couple of bug fixes). But the style of the artwork will remain the same.

    We also have sales results from first day. 1203 downloads! At the moment the game is ranked 8 among all games and 2nd in arcade games in Polish App Store!

    There should be like a 'neverending' mode to this game

    Man that's hard!

    But you will get better with each try. Restarts fast. The graphics are not so bad in my honest opinion (artwork). Played about 15 minutes some "normal" levels—the other two game mode options "capture the flag" and "highscore" are locked—and nothing is recorded to Game Center (zero points, no achievements) although I found the (somewhat hidden) GC login and made 40 points.

    13 pages helpfile with details. Ads on menue screen (not in gameplay) covering the "achievements" option (well, almost completely)… You can switch off the repetitive four beats of music separately.

    A new and innovative concept to combine jump and line drawing controls. Not easy. Adjust your frustration level. But worth a try maybe.

    I think that this game is pretty ok. Not being rude in any way whatsoever but it is nowhere near the game that Mega Jump is.
    Still not a bad game though

    Why does the difficulty start off so high for the game? You'll never get any kind of casual gamers playing this game with the levels being that hard and that long to complete.

    Only 9 people have ever even completed level 1 so far.

    And your leaderboards are counting backwards, people should be rewarded for having the least amount of lines drawn not the most.

    I thought it was just me finding the first levels so difficult.
    Glad to know it's not

    1. If you read the help than you will know, that the score is 2500 minus sum of moves for all levels in that mode.

    2. I am aware of all small bugs and update that fixes them is on the way. The scores get updated when you touch the game center button.

    3. Again if you read the help, you will notice that you have to unlock other modes, and the neverending mode is the highscore.

    4. Actually there is a guy that already has over 1000 points.

    5. The difficulty has been adjusted many times. Now its in the middle, there are people who find it difficult and there is my brother, who completes the game in 2 days:)

    6. I gave that game to a father of my friend, he used a touch screen for the first time in his life. After 15 minutes he finished the first level. He was a total novice, so I decided it's ok. Some people say this game is irritating, but there is something that makes you try one more time - and that was the idea behind it.

    Really nice gameplay. So it is possible :cool:. I have to practice even more, but it could be difficult because I'm playing all the time. This game is great and FREE. It's a must!!
