Let the bugs break out with ‘Jump Out’ for iPhone 4
The big googly-eyed bugs in ‘Jump Out‘ have had enough being stuck in the box and are now waiting for you to help them escape. With 60 levels to complete you the differents bugs will have to dodge obstacles to get to safety while collecting stars as you go.
You start out as a charming beetle bug. To get around your box you have to bounce onto what looks like bottle tops. Bouncing from one to the other. If the bug lands on the floor though, you will see your new found friendly bug wither away and die. So it’s best to watch out so that you are careful with your jumps!
The controls are easy to pick up. When you first start to play the game it will show you the controls in the background of how to control your bug. Simply flick him by holding on to him then letting go. If you want to see where he might land hold your finger down longer and a line will appear to guide you with your aim. I must admit once I figured out that bit, it was a little easier at getting him to go where I wanted.
You have to aim for the exit and while you are jumping from bottle top to bottle top collect stars as you go. The more stars you collect the more points you earn. To get to the next level you only actually have to get one bug through the exit. I felt this a bit strange as I expected to have to get all bugs through but that wasn’t the case. At times this made it a slightly easier to play. You do score more obviously if you manage to free all.
The warm up levels are quite easy but help you get into the swing of things for the harder levels. As you progress you will start getting obstacles in the way like sugar cube barriers and fans blowing strong air out. Each one needing the bug to work its way around it.
There are currently four bugs to free, the charming beetle, high-jumping cricket, feeble shrimp and tough snail each with their own unique abilities. You get new bugs as you work through the levels.
The graphics are fun and colourful, with great animated characters. Their huge eyes are bound to have you feeling sorry for them and help them the best you can!
It is a fun, challenging game for all ages and one that can be picked up and played for any length of time. There is Game Center support coming soon. The developers have also promised new bugs, traps and levels. A great game to try with the promise of much more to come.
- 60 challenging levels to complete.
- Great fun graphics
- Only one bug needed to clear the level can make it a little too easy at times. Very easy to take the ‘easy way out’.
