Mega Jump Update

Mega Jump’s eighth update was just approved by Apple and it is now available for download on the App Store. Full text of the update log below:

Hey Mega Jumpers! Thanks again for making Mega Jump one of the most popular iPhone/iPod Touch games on Earth! Your support and feedback has meant the world to us. Now get ready for another huge update! Here’s what is new in Mega Jump Update 8:

Powerups Cost Less Mega Points!

  • All powerups in the Extras now cost fewer Mega Points to unlock!

Powerups Can Be Upgraded!

  • You can now upgrade each powerup in the Extras – from Turbo to Super to Mega!
  • The Power Shield can be upgraded to not only protect you, but also go on the offensive! Upgrading the Power Shield makes it fire thunderbolts at enemies and obstacles in the game and also adds a score multiplier!
  • The Lucky Blast can be upgraded to increase its reach! If you upgrade it enough, the blast will follow you, paving your way with x5 coins and red stars!
  • The Anti Gravity Boots are all about speed! The more you upgrade them, the faster you run up the walls. As you upgrade the boots, they will begin to repel and destroy enemies and obstacles!
  • The Magnet is all about coin collecting! The more you upgrade it, the more coins you will be able to collect! If you thought the Super Magnet was powerful, wait until you see the Mega Magnet!

New Characters!

  • Marty – Help this cheeky monkey bounce his way into orbit and he’ll be grinning all the way to the stars!
  • Biff – He’s a fuzzy tail-slapper chewing up the scenery on the way to the great beaver dam in the sky!

New Wallpapers!

  • 5 new wallpapers can be unlocked in the Extras menu!

And More!

  • Added more bounce blocks and improved other challenges!
  • Added confirmation dialog for unlocking Extras – no more accidental unlocking!
  • When you have the Balloon powerup, you are now invulnerable to spike blocks!
  • Added a gorgeous retina icon!
  • Updated to the newest version of OpenFeint!
  • Sound effects are now better than ever!

  • a lot of crashes with iphone 3G with os 4.1

  • Thanks for the heads up, Emmanuel. We’re looking into this. In the meantime, it sometimes helps to power off your device and then power it on again. This frees up memory that Mega Jump needs to run.

  • well done

  • freezes a lot on t mobile vibrant
