Rolling Jump review (iPod/iPhone)April 22, 2012
♫ “You gotta roll with it, you gotta take your time”
10 word description: Vertical endless jumper. Jump from wheel to wheel. Game Center.
10 word review: Polished, simple, slightly derivative but certainly addictive. Entertaining power-up strategies.
You will like this if you enjoy: Vertical endless jumping games. Captain Ludwig involves similar planet-hopping mechanics, although Rolling Jump has a more focussed feel and, for me, is more fun.
The good news: Graphics and sound, while perfectly acceptable, are secondary to the instantly addictive gameplay. Control method is generally fine.
The bad news: Tiny issue with tapping the character to deploy the power-up – he’s rather small and the tap often registers as a jump instead of initiating the power-up booster. Not a massive problem; you get used to it.
Arcadelife verdict: This is a good addition to the endless jumping crowd; nice looks and great use of collectible mini-suns to charge up the booster plus the capped 10x multiplier – do you use the boost as soon as possible or gamble on maxing out your multiplier first?
