This is Portabliss, a column about downloadable games that can be played on the go.
I think I’m starting to understand a paradox embraced by the level designers of Rayman Jungle Run. To do good, and to earn praise from their players, they must do evil. They must string together chasms, ropes, hills and hazards in a way that rewards concentration and casts failure into a bottomless pit. It’s a thankless job that thrives on devious impulses, and I am grateful for it.
Rayman Jungle Run is a mean, clever purification of Ubisoft’s console game, Rayman Origins. The immediate reward of playing it can be seen in the gorgeous 2D artwork, which is vivid proof of the UbiArt engine running well on mobile platforms. There’s more personality crammed into Rayman’s spirited run than you’ll find in the entirety of some other games – and he doesn’t even have a leg to stand on.
