Jump Out is an excellent new android app from developer Tap TapBoom Games. Like all great mobile games, the concept is simple but the execution is flawless and Jump Out is no exception. Game play involves trying to help a variety of insects escape (or Jump Out did someone say?) from within the 4 walls of their box. Within the box are a variety of cogs, fans, traps, barricades and most importantly stars. The object is to free the insects and collect the stars in the process. This has to be achieved in a limited amount of jumps, as too many jumps will see your insect become concussed and unable to escape!
The controls are great - anyone familiar with Angry Birds will be right at home here, you simply click on an insect to launch it and a helpful 'arc' will show you the intended trajectory. Once you complete levels you are scored in the classic 1- 3 star rating system, with more levels and bonuses unlocking as the game proceeds. The difficulty levels here are perfect, with game play starting off easy, but with the difficulty and new concepts gradually being incorporated and increased.
With 140 levels, 30 achievements and 30 bonus levels, there is plenty of content within Jump Out and the price is perfect (FREE!). This is the quintessential mobile game in many aspects, featuring cute characters, fantastic physics based game play, crisp graphics and an excellent soundtrack.
All in all, an excellent android application well worth a play - I would not be surprised to see this make its way to the top of the casual gaming charts!
In the words of the developer:
They are captured within 4 walls! Their only hope is the cap they are holding onto, as if trying to catch a straw in a hurricane! Surrounded by cunning traps, they look ahead and see… the exit. These bugs have nothing to fear; they always look dangers in the face and keep on crying Jump Out!
