Rayman Jungle Run is a 2D sidescroller platform game for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8/10 devices, that uses the same graphical style and engine as Rayman Origins. It was released on iOS on the 20th September 2012 and on Android on the 27th September 2012. With an update released on 4th December 2012 for iOS, players can access 10 more levels and purchase a pack of new playable characters, including Globox, Raymesis and Raybox. In March 2013 the game was ported to Windows 8/10 and Windows Phone. Another update was released on 11th April 2013, containing 20 new levels.
In the game, Rayman runs automatically through the entire level. The player can jump, and use the helicopter later on, by tapping anywhere on the screen. In each of the original level packs there's a new ability unlocked, such as being able to wall run and punch. The punching is done by tapping a dedicated button in the bottom left corner. The goal is to obtain all 100 Lums in each level by collecting Lums and Skull Coins. There are 6300 Lums in total and they unlock downloadable wallpapers.
Each level has three Skull Teeth to be earned depending on the amount of Lums collected. The green one is obtained at 8 Lums, the blue one at 45 Lums, and the red one at 100 Lums. As soon as five red teeth in one world are obtained, the Land of the Livid Dead level opens up. These levels are much harder than the normal levels, but there are no Lums and the player only has to complete these levels in order to gain a red tooth.
The player can also try to beat their time record in any level, however these times are only displayed if the player collects all the Lums in that level - except the Land of the Livid Dead levels where the record time can also be compared in leaderboards. If all of the 10 red Skull Teeth are collected in any world, it will be marked with a crown and show a small cinematic with Mister Death showing all of his teeth back in their place.
