The Good Rayman Jungle Run is an incredibly easy game to learn, but it's very difficult to master. The game succeeds at challenging you to complete perfect levels.

The Bad Some Lums are so well hidden that you'll think you're completing perfect levels when you're not. This game has a very high frustration factor, so be ready to restart levels a lot.

The Bottom Line Rayman Jungle Run has incredibly easy controls, but extremely challenging gameplay. If you're OK with restarting levels multiple times to go for the perfect run, you should buy this well-made game.

Rayman Jungle Run is an excellent single-touch control running game that keeps you on your toes as you try to collect all the coins (Lums) and attempt to complete perfect levels. Powered by the same UbiArt Framework engine that brought you Rayman Origins, Rayman Jungle Run features excellent graphics and a simplified control system for a great all-around game.

The controls couldn't be any easier. Simply touch to jump and touch-and-hold to fly for a short period of time. But even with such easy controls, Rayman Jungle Run is incredibly challenging. Rayman runs automatically once you start a level, and it's your timing that is put to the test while you try to both collect Lums and stay alive by jumping and flying out of the way of obstacles.
