Universal Support Jumps Into 'Buggy' Physics-Based Puzzle Game Jump Out! Holidays
Just a couple of weeks after its launch in the App Store, Jump Out! Holidays has already jumped into its first major update. Jump Out! Holidays is to the original Jump Out as Angry Birds Seasons is to the original Angry Birds. That is to say, Jump Out! Holidays is the separate "seasonal" edition of Jump Out!. When it debuted in the App Store at the end of last month, Jump Out! Holidays rather predictably highlighted the fact that it features Halloween-themed levels. But right now, it also features levels inspired by Christmas, which is just a little over a month away. Additionally, it contains tutorial and trophy levels. But how do you play these levels anyway? The App Store description for Jump Out! Holidays actually doesn't say how:
Five little bugs sitting on a gate The first one said, "My it's getting late!" The second one said, "There are witches in the air!" The third one said, "Good folk, beware!" The fourth one said, "We'll run and run!" The fifth one said, "Let's have some fun!" "WOOOOOOOH", went the wind, and OUT went the light; And the five little bugs rolled out of sight!If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. To cut to the chase … Jump Out! Holidays, just like Jump Out!, is a physics-based puzzle game where you have to help bugs jump out of the environments they're stuck in. It has that charming and colorful Cut the Rope-y feel to it. And it also challenges you to go beyond the call of duty and collect three stars in every level. As mentioned, Jump Out! Holidays has just received its first major update. And with it comes native iPad support. Originally an iPhone-only game, Jump Out! Holidays now works at full resolution on the iPad and the iPad mini. The update also delivers a new soundtrack and some graphical improvements. Now compatible with both iPhone and iPad, Jump Out! Holidays is available in the App Store for free. Download it now and jump in on the fun. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
