We loved Rayman Origins when it launched last fall. In the middle of the punching, killing, shooting and dragon hunting we were doing ad nasuem last holiday season, Rayman Origins stood out as something truly unique and charming.
Ubisoft has elected to create a mobile take on the experience with Rayman Jungle Run. As the name and platforms indicate, this is a running title where players are simply tasked with helping characters hop over or dodge obstacles by touching the screen in simple ways.
Sounds like almost every other running game available on mobile platforms, doesn’t it. But, hey, this one features Rayman Origin‘s music and art style. That’s a good enough reason to check it out in our book.
The title will sell for $2.99 and is a universal application.
Now, you can head to the App Store page for the game. Like we said, Android users will see it on their marketplace tomorrow.
London, UK – September 19, 2012 – Today Ubisoft announced the immediate availability of Rayman Jungle Run, the first Rayman iteration developed specifically for mobile devices. Rayman Jungle Run is now available for iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch® and will be made available for Android mobile devices tomorrow at the price of £1.99. The game has been optimized to take advantage of the capabilities of the latest mobiles devices, and will soon be updated for a full iPhone 5 optimization.
Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier and Pasta Games, Rayman Jungle Run is powered by the same UbiArt framework engine that brought players Rayman Origins, winner of multiple Game of the year and Platformer of the Year awards. Featuring beautiful graphics optimized for the latest devices and smooth touch-based controls, Rayman Jungle Run is easy for all ages to pick up and play, but challenging to master.
In a nutshell, Rayman Jungle Run includes all the acclaimed qualities and features that people can expect from a Rayman game, adapted to make the best of the mobile devices possibilities.
