    Rayman Jungle Run
    Platforms: iOS, Android
    Developer: Ubisoft Montpelier & Pastagames
    Category: action arcade
    Release date: Sept. 20

    The familiar platforming hero Rayman makes the jump to smartphone and tablet gaming with this release. It uses the same UbiArt framework engine that was used to create the beautiful sidescroller Rayman Origins for the consoles last year. You run sideways and jump like crazy, unlocking powers and discovering cool worlds and hidden surprises. The game uses touch controls and enables you to unlock wallpapers. It supports cloud saves on iOS and Game Center leaderboards.

    I guess this is away to keep Legends an exclusive and still get money from people who wouldn't buy the wii u or at least at launch. :unsure:

    I wonder how much it will cost.

    It's a Ray-naissance for the series, Man.

    You hate to say something looks good? Why? It's not like it's a Bratz game.

    Whatfuckenever I was expecting a "social" game so I was pleasantly surprised to see something that shows a lot of effort. My only concerns would be the controls as some developers do tend to bork touchscreen ones.

    Because it's an iOS game and I'm not so fond of gaming on the platform.

    Looks to me the game may implement auto-running and focus on good timing of jumps.

    It should be a good game if it plays the minimalist input style of iOS and Android.

    OK good. I thought this was going to be a copy and paste of Temple Run with Rayman.

    I hate Temple Run btw.

    This is definitely a game I'd play on my phone. Rayman style Canabalt.

    Look at this game. Then look at the mega man turd that capcom showed. The former looks good. The latter, well, looks like a turd.
    @capcom, look at this and learn. this is how you'll gain new fans and keep the old ones, with the HELP of smartphone games.

    I do like the Jungle Run/Jetpack Joyride type of games so something along those lines with Rayman styling and aspects sounds rather good.

    Unfortunately I don't really have much to run it on.
