The Mega Jump monsters are putting on their best spooky costumes to celebrate Halloween! Redford and a few of his friends have been hard at work making scary outfits for the spooky season and we think they’ve done a pretty good job
Get Them Before They’re Gone!
Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be releasing 6 Limited Edition Halloween costume characters. The first frightful figure is Frankenford – Redford’s Halloween costume – and he’s available on the store right now!
Any Halloween character you unlock is yours to keep forever, but the Halloween characters will only be available in the store for a limited time, so get them while you can!

I’ve had an iPhone for nearly a year and a half now, so why has it taken me so long to give Mega Jump a try? Either way, it was worth the wait – its BRILLIANT.
If like me, you haven’t yet tried this utterly brilliant little game, I recommend you address that unfortunate statistic A-Sap! Highly recommended.”
