Avallon Alliance's hit bug launching physics-based puzzle game, Jump Out!, has been updated with Retina display support, 15 new levels and a handful of other goodies. We also have promo codes to pass out to some lucky readers. As its name describes, Jump Out! requires you to help little bugs leap out of the dangerous environments they are stuck in, like cardboard boxes and computers, while collecting stars along the way. You are able to accomplish this by tapping and dragging your finger away from the bugs and then releasing, which will cause them to leap off of spinning sprockets. A line indicating the general path your bug will appear when you are about to launch, making it a tad easier for you to either avoid or utilize the many obstacles in your way. You can also leave some bugs behind if you feel it's necessary to collect all of the stars in each level, because you only need one bug to make it out alive in order to move on. The recent update to Jump Out! added 15 new levels, Retina display support, new sounds, a new icon, improved character selection, an animated tutorial and significant performance improvements. That's to go along with the original 60 levels, four characters, and eight objects. Avallon Alliance also intends to add Game Center support, 30 new levels, new characters and new objects via the next update, so stay tuned. Jump Out! for iPhone and iPod touch is available in the App Store for $.99.
