Update 14 Sneak Peak: Ultra Hard and Super Easy Modes!

Apr 1, 2011   //   by Nick Coombe   //   Announcements  //  9 Comments

We’re keeping the Updates rolling! Update 13 is just around the corner, with Pepper the Penguin, the ability to store all of your progress so you’ll never lose it, and a ton of speed-enhancing tweaks, but we’re not done yet!

Shortly after Update 13, we’re bringing a brand new set of challenges to Mega Jump! Because you asked for it, we’re proud to present Ultra Hard and Super Easy stages!

Super Easy Stages

Can’t get past Stage 1? Tired of endlessly playing the same stage over and over again? Do you dream of an endless green forest and the tantalizing glimpse of the city beyond that you can never seem to reach? Well, try out the Super Easy stages!

Right from the get-go you’ll be practically handed coins by the bucket-full. Skill and luck don’t really come into it – you’ll have a harder time avoiding coins and powerups than trying to stay airborne! And with rows and rows of bounce blocks to keep you safe, up is the only option! Not only that, but if by some disastrous fluke you find yourself falling – don’t worry, the Mega Trampoline is there to cushion your fall and send you hurtling back into the fields of gold again.

If you’d rather watch than play, Super Easy mode is for you – just sit back, relax, put your hands behind your head, and let the Mega Points roll in!

 

Ride Those Red Stars Ridley!

Ultra Hard Stages

Beat all 20 Stages? Unlocked all the powerups and characters? Need a new challenge? Well get ready for pain with the Ultra Hard stages!

Take on wall after wall of Spike Blocks and Anvils, designed with one goal in mind – your dismal failure. Get used to being flung into an unforgiving fortress of spikes when you spring off a bounce block while you flail your arms around, fruitlessly trying to save yourself from certain doom.

Heck, even the coins are out to get you! That’s right, the only coins in the Ultra Hard stages are Trickster coins! Catch ‘em if you can! Also, look out for the Anti-Magnet – if you thought spike blocks were bad enough just sitting there waiting to be plowed into, try dodging them when they come after you like swarm of armored, block-shaped hornets!

You may as well give up before you start, unless you enjoy seeing your hopes and dreams disappear in a shower of coins amongst rows of merciless, unforgiving skewers. Good luck!

 

Too Bad Dizzy! You Got Spiked!

 

We’ll keep you posted on Update 14 which should be out not long after Update 13, so during April follow our ongoing latest stories for more info! Keep jumping!

Pepper the Penguin!

Mega Jump Update 13 is approaching fast! We’re putting the final touches on it now and getting it ready for a submission to Apple any day now.

Based on another very successful Facebook poll, I’d like to introduce you to Pepper the Penguin, our most recent addition to the Mega Jump line-up. Just because penguins can’t fly doesn’t mean Pepper is grounded, she soars like the best of them!

Thanks to some fantastic advances from OpenFeint, we’re now able to back-up your progress and items to your OpenFeint account! Make sure you take the time to make an account –  in addition to being able to save your stuff, you can also compete in leaderboards, earn achievements, make friends and take advantage of a bunch of other great features.

We’ve also added some performance improvements and bug fixes to help you get the best experience on all devices!

We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available!

Happy Jumping!
