Product: Rayman Fiesta Run | Publisher: Ubisoft | Genre: Arcade, Endless running, Platform, Retro
If Ubisoft's Gold Award-winning Rayman Jungle Run has remained on your iPhone or iPad Home screen since its release last September, you'll be overjoyed to read that sequel Rayman Fiesta Run is now available to download from the App Store and Google Play.
Rayman Fiesta Run is packed with tons of new levels and power-ups, as well as plenty of new challenges and an all-new food-themed world that you can explore relatively freely.
We recently sat down with the Rayman Fiesta Run dev team to discuss these new features and the future of Rayman Fiesta Run a little further.
Pocket Gamer: What new features and improvements set Rayman Fiesta Run apart from Rayman Jungle Run?
Ubisoft: One of the key features that sets Rayman Fiesta Run apart from its predecessor, Rayman Jungle Run, is the presence of something we originally included in the recently released console title Rayman Legends: the Invasion levels.
Basically, each level in the game has an alternative version that is far more challenging than the original. These Invasion levels are only available to players who prove their merit and execute a perfect run on the regular level.
This adds an entirely new layer of content for the skilled players, and allows us to keep the core of the game more accessible. The challenge is still there; you just have to prove yourself before being able to take it on.
We have social integration in this new game, too, so now you can see where you stand compared to your friend through the game's new open map structure.
And there are even power-ups available for use in the levels to change the way you play and help those players who are having a rough time finding all the Lums in some of the more challenging levels.
On top of all that, Rayman Fiesta Run takes place in the food-themed world of the Rayman universe, so there are a lot of slippery ice slides, boiling-hot chilli pots to jump over, and even mountains of cake to plough through.
Gone is the Jungle and everything that came with it. Rayman is in new territory now, and the player is going to have to adapt to the new environmental challenges.
