The App Store just named Mega Run in App Store Best of 2012 in Canada! www.itunes.com/appstorebestof2012
With Monsters, Inc. Run climbing the charts, Mega Run is also still receiving accolades, this time from the App Store! Mega Run was selected as one of the Best of 2012 games in Canada, and we’re honored to sit alongside the other fantastic apps of 2012.
A Terrific Team-Up
Get Set Games in partnership with Disney is very proud to announce Monsters, Inc. Run, available now on the App Store! Join Mike, Sulley, and other Monsters, Inc. duos on their epic adventure to save Boo!
Run, jump, and power your way through this monstrously fun action game! Journey through the city of Monstropolis with famous scare teams from Monsters, Inc., and find a way to rescue Boo.
In Monsters, Inc. Run, you’ll play as a Scare Team, tagging out between your Scarer and Scare Assistant to get to hard to reach places, so you’ll need to pick the right monster at the right time to find all of Boo’s lost things! Use the CDA-supplied REMOVR, the MOR Ray, the AIR Pack and the gelatinous GUNCC shooter to take on Randall’s cronies and save Boo!
“I’m not even breaking a sweat!”
Monsters, Inc. Run also features a hair-raising Endless Mode that has you hurtling along at a breathtaking pace. See how long you can last, and make your SAVE Device count! Try and make it onto the worldwide leaderboards!
We had a blast working with Disney and Pixar on this project, and we’re very proud of what we’ve created. We’re huge fans of Mike Wazowski and and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan, and it’s been an honor to work with these fine (and furry) monsters. We hope we’ve done them justice, and we think you’ll love what’s in store in Monsters, Inc. Run.
It’s shaping up to be a HUGE holiday season from Get Set Games, with two beefy updates for Mega Run and Mega Jump, and much more to come!
iPhone 5? iPhone 5!
Yes that’s right, Mega Run now takes full advantage of the glorious widescreen of the iPhone 5!
Mega Run really shines with the wider view, and iPhone 5 players might even get a slight advantage from seeing what’s coming up just a little bit sooner!
On iCloud 9
Mega Run has been given a big overhaul to fully support iCloud syncing! Get Set had a great run with Openfeint, which we have used right from our very first game, Addicus, and was instrumental in helping to promote Mega Jump when it first launched. Sadly, Openfeint will be closing down on December 14th, and will be no more.
Get Set would like to extend a big thank-you to everyone on the Openfeint team that helped get us to where we are today, and diligently worked with us over the years to deliver great stuff for our awesome players! You guys made a big difference to Get Set!
iCloud support in Mega Run is seamless. Just make sure you’re signed in to iCloud and it will keep all your progress safe!
Keeping Bugs on the Run
We’ve also done a lot of work under the hood to stamp out a few bugs that we’d noticed some players were seeing, and the latest version of Mega Run is our most solid yet.
Mega Jump goes fourth! It’s been a long time coming, but we’ve added a fourth new world to Mega Jump on iPhone, and it just might be our best one yet! Update 18 adds a new world with 20 challenging stages, along with a few good fixes and some jolly holiday characters!
It’s a Matter of Time Travel
Eterna will transport you from an ancient dinosaur burial ground through long-forgotten ruins, past a medieval castle and over exploding volcanoes into the swirling vortex at the heart of the galaxy! It’s all in a day’s work for Redford, though…
Jumping on an iCloud
Mega Jump has also been updated to sync with iCloud, so your progress will be stored seamlessly as you play. We’ve also made a bushel of bug fixes so, like a trusty steed, Mega Jump is now our most reliable game ever. Solid.
‘Tis the Season to Mega Jump!
Coming along for the sleigh ride are three characters for the festive season – Redford the Elf, Rudrolf the Rolfnosed Rolfdeer and, making a return for 2012, Bryan the space-faring snowman! Look out for more festive cheer in the days to come!
The last time we updated you on how many times Mega Jump had been downloaded was back in December 2011, when Mega Jump reached the heady heights of 19 million downloads. Well, even though Mega Jump is a 2 year old, non-retina (yet!), non-universal (yet!), non-iPhone 5 (yet!) game that’s over two years old, people seem to still want a piece of Redford’s jumping antics.
Mega Jump is now available on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore, and has been downloaded an incredible 35 million times! As always, we’ve got much more planned for Mega Jump, and 2013 will be a very special year indeed for our Little Red Monster.
Thanks to all our fans and keep jumping!
Wow! Mega Run is now #1 in 21 countries around the world! We’ve been astonished by the response from players and reviewers alike and we’d like to say a huge, huge
to everyone that has made Mega Run a success! It took a while to get Mega Run out the door, but you all made it so worthwhile!

“Redford’s brother and sister have been kidnapped by a mysterious monster and taken far away! Join Redford on an amazing adventure across multiple worlds and dozens of challenging stages. Find Redford’s lost family and discover new worlds to explore by following the trail of stolen coins and Forest Gems! “
There’s only one question left hanging – just who is the mysterious monster?…
A Platform of Awesome
Mega Run – Redford’s Adventure is a blazing, ridiculous and challenging platform game that brings together modern one-touch gameplay with old-school jumping addictiveness. If you like games with plumbers and hedgehogs, you’ll love our little red guy too!
Mega Run was released last week in Canada (where Get Set Games is from!) and has shot to #1 on the App Store!
Not So Stealthy
We tried to do a stealth launch in Canada to make sure that everything was fine before the Worldwide launch on May 30th (mark your calendar!). Along the way, Mega Run got picked by Apple as an Editors Choice choice game and has shot to #1 on the iPad charts, and #3 on the iPhone charts!
What People Are Saying
“Fun game, reminds me of Mario, I like all the power ups. Very addictive ”
– 2sweet for words
“Got this game because i love platformers…the only problem is i cant stop friggin playing the damn game haha”
“This app is so fun and addictive to play, especially on the iPad. I give this app a two thumbs up.”
- Loren Laparra
“How is this game free? It’s amazing! Excellent graphics, fun levels, and some legitimate challenge.”
We’ve had a fantastic response so far and people are loving Mega Run!
We have had some issues reported by players (which is why we did the “soft-launch”), and we’re submitting a patch to Apple so those problems will be fixed before or soon after the worldwide launch on May 30th!
In the meantime, if you live in Canada and don’t have Mega Run yet, go grab it! Oh Canada! We love ya!
