It's update season in the App Store and Ubisoft has just released a big one for their award-winning endless running platformer Rayman Jungle Run.
Rayman Jungle Run
Apple always seems to be a step ahead of everyone, even the media. True to form for the world's most valuable company, Apple dropped its list of "Best Of" apps today, giving the Game of the Year award to Ubisoft's Rayman Jungle Run.
It's been a New York minute since I've played Rayman Jungle Run, but Ubisoft drew me back in with today's free update of 10 new levels. Nine of these levels, titled Potpourri, offer up new environments for the gamer, and after swinging through grassy vines and jumping off sunny, green drenched cliffs, a little snowfall and exploring waterfalls are a welcome change of pace. After running through Potpourri you will also unlock a Land of the Living Dead stage.
Rayman Jungle Run's enjoyment factor depends on your personal gaming aesthetic. Are you a quick gratification addict who wants an easy endless runner to digest, or do you prefer a real challenge? Although it starts off in simple fashion, Rayman Jungle Run's difficulty level dramatically increases as you progress, and unless you have a perfect balance of timing and coordination, expect your Rayman to bite the dust time and time again.
Rayman has been a popular character in the video game world for years and now he's been let loose in the jungle in the fun new game, Rayman Jungle Run!
