Ready to rule the air? Take a leap into my iPhone app review of Gorilla Jump.
It’s all about the jump in this high flying app. Gameplay is pretty simple in the Gorilla Jump iPhone app. You lead a gorilla through the sky, leaping from one ledge to the next. Jumping is automatic, all you have to do is aim your gorilla in the right direction.
Learning to play is pretty simple. Mastering this game is slightly more challenging. Not only are you faced with a randomized board that’s different every time you start, you must lead your gorilla past enemies, launching bananas in your defense.
There are also boosts, such as a jet pack, trampolines that sling shot your gorilla high up in the air, and even a Super Gorilla mode, where your agile airborne primate becomes an invincible force flying through the air. Making the leap gets harder the higher you go.
I like this simple yet strangely addictive iPhone app. High scores may be tracked through Open Feint and Game Center for additional fun. Give Gorilla Jump iPhone app your best shot, then compare scores with friends. A little friendly competition never hurt any gorillas.
Since aim is the name of the game, get used to tilting your iPhone with precision. Your gorilla will jump automatically, and this app is extremely accurate and responsive. I wish there was an option to adjust the sensitivity just for the Gorilla Jump app.
Gorilla Jump iPhone app gets tricky when it comes to defeating the bad guys. You will meet tigers, snakes, spear brandishing natives and hunters with guns along the way. A simple tap of the screen will launch a banana at them, so make sure you collect plenty as you jump. Remember to watch the ledges while you shoot or you’ll end up falling from great heights.
I do not have any complaints about the Gorilla Jump iPhone app’s responsiveness or loading. The app is really solid. Use caution while turning off the sound effects and music, however. I turned off the music and left the sound effects on only to have them turn themselves off after a few moments of jumping. It’s best just to leave them on. The effects are helpful and the music is quite festive.
The Gorilla Jump iPhone app is available for $.99 in iTunes. That’s not a bad deal for an app that could amuse you for hours. Though this app is simple, the solid graphic design work and thoughtful app development definitely make it worth the price.
Gorilla Jump iPhone app requires iOS 3.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
