Game

Rayman’s long been a famous character on other platforms, but his iOS incarnation departs from the traditional platform-game template and instead injects DNA from endless runners. Instead of you having complete control over the strange-looking hero, he automatically sprints through levels, leaving you to carefully time jumps and other actions.

What might have been reductive makes perfect sense on iOS, boiling down the platforming action to its purest essence. Relieved of the demands of moving Rayman about, you get to concentrate on getting him through each stage in a manner that collects as many glowing Lums as possible. These prizes when tallied then open up more levels to explore.

Rayman leaps for his life — that molten liquid looks hot!

Rayman Fiesta Run Review: Intuitive on-the-go platforming
This is a gorgeous looking game, with innovative visual design, and varied levels. The gameplay might be straightforward, but it never seems like you’re repeating the same thing over and over, and that makes replaying levels to better your score fun rather than a chore.
