Rayman Jungle Run is a 2D sidescroller platform game for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices, that uses the same graphical style of 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 to 10 extra levels and purchase a pack of new playable characters, including Globox and Bad Rayman. In March 2013 the game was ported to Windows 8 and RT. Another update was released on 11th April 2013, containing 20 extra levels.

The game received critical acclaim for its art style and simple gameplay. Notably, it was featured as a free gift during Apple's 2013 "12 Days of Christmas" promotion.

A sequel to Jungle Run, titled Rayman Fiesta Run, was released in October 2013.

Gameplay

Rayman runs automatically through the entire level. The player can jump - and helicopter later on - by tapping anywhere on the screen. He can also do a wall run and also punch using the dedicated button in the bottom left corner. The goal is to obtain as many lums as possible out of 100 and to rush through the level. There are 6300 lums in total and they unlock several wallpapers for the devices. The Skull Coins reappear here too, though they only worth 20 lums. Also, new colors of Skull Teeth appear in the game: green and blue. The green one can be obtained at 8 lums, the blue one at 45 lums, and the red one at 100 lums. As soon as five red teeth are obtained, the Land of the Livid Dead 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 his/her time record in every level, howewer, these times are only displayed if the player collected all the lums in that level - except the Land of the Livid Dead levels. If all of the 10 red Skull Teeth are collected in any section, it will be marked with a crown and as well will show a small cinematic with Mister Death showing all of his teeth are in their place.

Levels

Rayman Jungle Run is divided in seven sections - there was originally 4, updates include another 3 sections - each one giving priority to one of Rayman's abilities. All four sections are subdivided in ten levels, the tenth level only being accessed if the player has collected 5 red Skull Teeth from that section. The game has received updates since its release, adding Potpourri, Pirate ship and Giant Plant.
