It’s super easy to play with both thumbs tapping on mushrooms on the respective half of the screen. Addicus is should buy for $1.99, and higher if you want some brain training math fun.”

Get To Know the Powerups in Mega Jump

May 10, 2010   //   by Derek van Vliet   //   About Our Games  //  22 Comments

The world of Mega Jump is filled with powerups. These give you abilities that help you during your epic journey for brief periods of time. They make you faster, relieve some difficulty, and generally bend the rules in your favor. Here’s a breakdown of all the powerups you will come across in Mega Jump:

The Boost Stars

Boost StarBoost stars are plentiful in the world of Mega Jump. Collecting one of these stars gives our hero a boost, sending him careening upwards. Stars come in a variety of colors, each one more boost-tastic than the last: yellow, green, blue and red.

The Winged Boots

Put a spring in your step by grabbing the winged boots. The boots amplify every jump you make – and they even amplify boost stars. The result is bigger, faster jumps that give you a leg up.

The Magnet

Increase your attractiveness with the magnet. When you have the magnet, you’ll notice that coins, stars and even other powerups can’t resist you. Suddenly collecting items becomes easy as taking candy from a baby.

The Balloon

The balloon gives you a little extra girth, but you’ll also be light as a feather. Grabbing this causes our hero to bloat a little. It will let you float upwards at a leisurely pace, plowing through enemies and other obstacles along the way.

The Umbrella

Slow your descent by collecting the umbrella. This powerup lets you float downwards as gently as Mary Poppins, giving you valuable additional seconds to move left or right to catch the next coin.

The Fireball

Hitch your wagon to this and you’ll go sky-high. The fireball sends you rocketing upwards on a ball of flame and smoke. You’ll barrel through coins, powerups and enemies because nothing can stop you with the fireball!

The Supernova

You had better hang on tight for this one. The supernova is not unlike the fireball, but it has our hero rocketing at such break-neck speeds that he becomes the center of an extremely powerful gravity well. Suddenly all objects are drawn to you like moths to a flame. You will gobble up all the goodies in your path – no exceptions!

These powerups are only the beginning. You can look forward to a lot more powerups coming soon to Mega Jump. And if you have an idea for a Mega Jump powerup, we would love to hear it!

The great reviews keep pouring in for Mega Jump. This latest one is from SlapApp.com, who awarded it a perfect 5/5 rating. Money quote:
 

 

“Unlimited coins, awesome powerups, and a little orange dude. Only one place to find it. Mega Jump. The game was released a few days ago and it looks to be a great challenge to Doodle Jump. Many have tried and failed but this game has style. It has power-ups. It’s the one. And only Get Set Games could make it.”
